Would you care to share?

There are better ways to achieve your goals. everything you do in life has always lead to reaching specific goals even if you do it conscienceless!

But, how can you make reaching your goals a bit easier and more manageable?

Hidden Vision Board

Vision boards as you probably know is putting college and images of your desires , dreams and affirmation to your  board this can be helpful to remind you of your goals but it can be frustrating when you see that you didn’t achieve it yet.

There is a better approach

Instead of visual representations that include photos use your pen and paper!

Step 1

Have your goal in your mind EX: you may want to have your own house or maybe you want to build a company.

step 2

Get coloring pens and papers and start to visualize the process, it’s not a good idea to just imagine you have the house or company and you are just there.

Instead, imagine each process starting from looking on the web or start to search in your city as you visualize let yourself draw on paper with eyes closed.

Do this for each goal on a new paper

Your drawing will make no sense to you and that’s the point. You may now have 10 drawings or more depends on how many you have.

If there is a lot of white space cut it down but keep some space around the drawing.

step 3

Gather all your drawings and get a board to attach your drawings to it.

(you can attach quotes on board)

step 4

Put it somewhere where you will see it every day.

Why This Works?

Your conscience mind as the time pass won’t know which drawings is for each goal and that is the point, you want your subconscious mind to know.

Sub-conscience mind has the ability to encrypt those drawings (goals) and it goes directly to your conscience mind giving you ideas and thoughts to work on achieving your goals.

Visualize the Process

Most likely when you think about your goals you always think about the end result.

Instead, think about the process and focus on that.

Thinking of the results when working on your goals sets a certain expectation and when something flicks off, you will lose motivation to continue working on them but when you focus on the process and what needs to be done every day to reach your goal, it will help you to continue.

Aim for 1% a Day

There is a rule for goals and it’s to work on your goals every single day but sometimes you lose the motivation as you go through, or as you get busy, and it’s normal but if you worked on your goal every day just 1% that’s 10% in 10 days! getting 10% of your goal done is better than no percent at all.

An example of that would be if you writing an adult book (which should contain about  90,000 words) you have to aim to write at least 900 words per day in 10 days.

By the end, you would have written 9000 words!

Grid Box


It can be used to plan out your goals and it can help you achieve your goals in a better way.

9 Grid box is all you need to make it easier for you:

  • In each box write one aspect of your life that you want to achieve ( Relationship, family, etc..)
  • Visualize the process for each box
  • list the things that needs to be done in order to achieve goals for this aspect
  • Each day create a specific goal that reflects all the boxes in your grid

For example one of your boxes is about having a better relationship with your family visualize what that would look like, maybe more calls more conversations, more of eating together.

Then determine what needs to be done to reach that visualization for example: Being more responsible, more compassionate.

At last, each day put one goal to reach that aspect of life, start with a simple call at beginning of your day.

You want to do it as soon as possible so you won’t have excuses.

Don’t let life change your goals, because achieving goals can change your life.
