Revisiting my vision board

Back in May 2010 I wrote a post How to create a vision board and included things I had on mine. More recently I turned the walls of my office into a continuous vision board at eye level running around my room. It is about 60cm wide and broken into categories. I am inspired every time I step in there.

Today I achieved something big to me from my vision board, which prompted me to look closer at my boards and the one I did back then to see exactly what I have achieved or what has come to me from my boards.

I was really surprised at just what has come to fruition in this time.
1.) A Toyota Camry – This happened today and was so incredibly exciting. We have wanted one for years. I started researching and focusing on them properly after doing my vision board last May. We narrowed it down to wanting a 2005 Toyota Camry Ateva. We weren’t going to buy a brand new car, this was as much as we wanted to spend at this time and the newer models seem to have lots of issues (especially 2007!) Anyway, the way it all came to happen, it was definitely meant to be our car and it is better than we thought. The one we got is top of the range and perfectly looked after. Love it.
2.) Some electricals such as a smartphone (I had iphone, but after researching decided to get the HTC Desire HD and love it), a hair straightner, Bio Ionic one to be exact. Whilst it may not seem that much coz anyone can get these, I got the phone for almost half RRP with bonuses too and am not on a contract to anyone, and the hair straightner is $210 at my wholesaler, $299 RRP, but I got one, brand new for $50! I have never seen it at that price.
3.) Random furniture such as my dream lounge and a swing set for my daughters. The lounge we found (and have not seen a similar one since) was $600 off and $1000 less than our original budget, so perfect and the swing set was free.
4.) Growing my wealth – this is happening on such a fast scale. I have my book coming out and quite a few other things on the horizon that look to boost me forward faster than I could have imagined when I started this blog.
5.) Increasing my properties – whilst this is not happening at the moment, my husband and I discovered that through some of our connections we have found an excellent way to have property virtually worry free. Not something everyone can do and very hard to get into if we didn’t know who we do.
6.) Storage and everything in its place – we have just had the kitchen renovated and are having wardrobes installed next week, so everything is beginning to have a place and it is all coming together. This is not my dream home, but at least it is happening.
There are so many more things, but these are the main ones that stood out to me. I just didn’t realise how far I have come and how much is coming true on my vision board.

Do you have one? Do you believe in them?

One thing I want to point out. A vision board won’t make things happen magically for you. You need to focus your energy on the things you desire and work towards them. Some things will just come to you randomly, but your mind needs to be open and aware of what you want. If you are open to it, you will see more opportunities than if you are not focused.

  1. Haven't heard of a vision board before, but now that I've learned about it from here, I think it's a good idea. Maybe I'd try making one for myself too. ;-)

  2. This is a great vision list! I think its great to have a list of things you can work towards and I definitely believe they can be achieved if we work hard and smart to achieve them. Great post!
