What do you vision your dream life to be like? Focus, be real, and think about what it would look like to you.
Now think about what your life is like right now. What would you change? Think about financially, physically, emotionally. Think about relationships with family, friends, coworkers and teammates.
To help me create and maintain a vision of my future, I create a vision board each year. I can’t wait until after Christmas to work on my 2019 board! I’m already thinking of what I want to put on there! There will be some repeats from the last couple of years (I think big!) and there will be new goals and dreams to add.
For the past 2 years, I’ve wanted the income of my side hustles, yes I have 2 businesses, to pay for my boys select soccer expenses along with the expense of sending them to Pine Cove each summer. I have achieved these goals! However, starting next week, my side hustles will become my main hustle as I leave my full time job at the end of this week. So my main financial goal for 2019 is much bigger!
Personally, I’ve focused my mind and thoughts to Choose Joy. Life throws you curve balls, you have control on how you react. Will you be bitter, resentful, or angry, or will you rise above the chaos, control your thoughts and choose joy? I refuse to let others control my thoughts and emotions. I have removed, or at least lessened my time around people who are negative. I don’t want to be that way, and I won’t spend time with people who are either.
You cannot control other people’s actions, but you do have control over yours. You have to make the choice to change. You can design your own life through change. It’s up to you. What are you waiting on?
