As much as my nature makes me a doer, I wouldn’t be in the job I am in or maintain this site if I wasn’t also a dreamer. Having dreams and visualizing your goals is a key component in personal and professional success because dreams are what keep you going when plans fail!
In the same way it can be encouraging to see a goal written on a Post-It on your desk, it can be equally encouraging to see a photograph of your dream home. I’m a big fan of vision boards or dreamboards. They are an awesome way to help you manifest your goals and experts believe visual reminders are amazing aids for increasing motivation.
I make a new one every New Year! I usually do it the old fashioned way by tearing out pictures and inspirational words and gluing them onto a piece of oak tag. But you can also make your dreamboards digitally. Dreamitalive.com is my Fab Find for this week – because what good are fabulous things if you don’t share them?
The site is fab because:
1. When you create your Dreamboard, you can scroll through hundreds of pictures to get inspired and attach to your goal. I never realized how much I’ve always wanted to make home-made pasta until I saw how happy it made someone else to do it!
2. The site features a community where you can share your support with others trying to achieve the same goals as you or get advice from those who have already been there. It’s a great source of extra motivation!
3. Does your dream come with a hefty price tag? The site allows users to request funding from family, friends, and other users to help bring your dreams a little closer to reality. (Not the best etiquette if you ask me but useful nonetheless.)
4. You have the opportunity to help fund someone else’s dream!
I hope you dream big this weekend!
