Own The New Year! Dream Board

Everyone always talks about New Year resolutions and how they plan to improve themselves and their life once entering the next trip around the sun. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for planning and setting goals but I’m calling BS on these resolutions. I feel like these types of goals are often pushed to the side after a couple weeks and forgotten about. The intention of setting them is great but the follow-through just isn’t there and it almost feels like something you have to do. Not to mention, come April or May do most people even remember their initial resolutions? Rather than making a list of what I will and will not do, I prefer to remake my dream board each year.

Dream boards can be pretty much anything you want them to be. Think of it as a collage of everything you wish and dream for in life. Want a new car? Put a picture of it on the board. Want to eat healthier? Add images of delicious, healthy meals. By setting intentions and focusing on your goals as a whole, it is much more manageable and achievable. Manifesting these thoughts each and every day by looking at the board to keep your mind focused on exactly what it is you want to achieve and why you want to achieve it. Having this little reminder impacts nearly every decision you make throughout your days of the year. Now we could spend all day disputing manifestation and the level of power it really has, however, it is impossible to argue that if your mind is constantly being reminded of something it is more likely you’ll skew your life to obtain it.

Location. Location. Location. A huge part of a dream board being successful is where you put it. Of course, you could just create it on January 1st, store it in a closet and check it at the end of the year like a time capsule, but this technique will defeat much of its purpose. Put your board somewhere you will see it at least once a day but the more often the better. Hang it in your bathroom and look over it while you brush your teeth every morning and night (hopefully). I love making a digital copy and setting it as my background on my phone/tablet/computer etc. This way you’re pretty much guaranteed to see it constantly throughout the day. If a huge part of your goals is diet, try putting it on your fridge. If you are going vegan in 2018 it’ll be much easier to stick to it if you see images reminding you of this everytime you go to open the fridge.

For those of who that do believe in manifestation, be specific! If you want to buy a car this year, use an image of the exact make, model and color you desire. I like to also write down my goals for 2018 and read them back to myself at least once a day. Creating a story of where you would like to be by the end of the year and projecting it out as definite and already a reality. You can even go as far as to creating a typical day in this life you would like to build. Imagining the home you live in, the people you spend time with, the job you go to.

This year don’t just let your dreams and goals fall by the wayside by spring, make them your reality. I would love for you all to share your dream boards with me and at the end of the year we can look back on them together and see all we’ve achieved and manifested into reality!

I hope you are all having an incredible start to 2018 and this proves to be your best year yet!

    I couldn’t agree more with you on that. I hesitated to take new resolutions this year because i never follow through with them. So, i didn’t.

    I have yet to decide what i want to do next but this new year will be a new chapter of my life since i plan on living on my own for the first time. It’s scary and it seems impossible for my anxious little heart but i know i can do it. I just have to figure out what i want next. So, this is a nice idea to design a dream board.

    Thank you for your inspiring words once again, Cammie.

    With love,

    Hi Cammie
    Happy New Year to you.
    I love this…. And actually already started to create mine at the back end of last year after reading books such as the secret and the magic. I believe in the law of attraction and if u want something bad enough u can reach your dreams…. Unless that is of course to live in USA and ur from the UK and your visa laws are so strict it almost seems impossible. Lol. However that aside….. I do believe if u have enough determination and vision you can make it happen.
    I hope u manage to create and gain all that u wish to accomplish during 2018.
    Thabk you for always inspiring
    Love Louise xxx
