How to Get What You Want - Write the Vision

Happy Wednesday y'all!! Hope everyone's doing great. I wanted to come to you today because it dawned on me this morning that we are halfway through the month that is halfway through year. We are literarily halfway through the year. So I think this is the perfect time to reflect. Businesses and and corporations do mid-year reviews all the time, and as I said on Monday, you should treat yourself as a business, and do the same. It's not to feel bad or deflated about what you haven't accomplished, it's about giving you the opportunity to make changes where needed so that you can still have an amazing year.

Goals, Write Vision

What Are Your Goals

You may or may not have sat down to write your goals at the beginning of the year, but I want you to know that statistics say that goals written down are way more likely to actually happen. So if you didn't, use today as the perfect opportunity. If you did write down your goals, read them and see where you stand in terms of completing them. You need to keep them at the forefront of your mind. It's not beneficial to write them down, close the book, and never look at them again until it's time to write down the goals for the following year. Having them constantly in your mind will allow you to focus on them, and as T. Harv Eker (author of "Secrets of the millionaire mind") says:

"What you focus on expands. So focus on what you want, not what you don't want."

I try to read my goals on a daily basis. I wrote them down, made it look a lil cute with colours and what not, put it in a sheet protector, and it's by my bed and part of my morning routine to read everyday. 

What Do You Want

Writing down your goals obviously requires you to know what you want. It might sound like an easy task to figure out, but believe me, it's not. So many are too focused on just making it through the day that if you were to ask them to state 3 things they would love to have or experience (money not being an issue), they're stumped. For one reason or another, people stopped believing in the power of their dreams, and stopped dreaming all together. The bible says "You have not because you ask not" (James 4:2), so you better figure out what it is you want, and ask for it, quick! Lol.

Vision Boards

vision board, get what you wantIt may be hard for you to express what it is you want in words, especially if you've never thought about it or don't write a lot. So a great and very powerful alternative is to create a vision board. I personally both write down my goals and have a vision board in my bedroom. You do whatever feels right for you, but I highly recommend you do something. Yesterday I heard a powerful testimony from my mentor, Christine of "Moms 'n Charge". She had heard about a blogger event called "Social Media On the Sand", an invite only event, which takes place in the Caribbean. She said this is an event she'd love to attend and put an image that represented the event (her on the beach), on her phone. This way her vision "board" was with her everywhere. Cause we all know we can't live without our phones, lol. Doing this kept her goal, her vision, in the forefront of her mind. It allowed her to subconsciously and consciously focus on it. And as quoted above, "what you focus on..." Long story short, she got an invite and registered to attend the event yesterday. How amazing is that?!! The same can come true for you, whatever your goals are. The power is within you to manifest anything!

My encouragement for today is that you do something (preferably everyday) that supports your dream, your vision, your goals. 

And of course I'm going to ask you to share in the comments below what you did or have done lately to accomplish/fulfill your goals :)

Love & Bless Y'all!

Stay Pretty & Precious, 


  1. First of all you have to know what you want! If only I had known that and written it down a long time ago! Now I have most of what I want - a place to live and above all time, to read all those books I didn't have a chance to read, to write that blog and to spend time with family and friends!

    1. Hi Maddy!! That is AMAZING!!! So happy you have a place to call HOME. I think that's something EVERYONE deserves, a place of serenity and joy, your own sanctuary. Reading will honestly change your life, and I'm glad you enjoy doing that too. I'm particularly happy you stopped by and read my blog ;) Stay blessed hun!! xoxo

  2. Thanks for the encouragement.I was just feeling a little down about pursuing my artistic passions and rethinking it.But I believe God would have me to use my talents and it's good to know what your want. Great blog post.

    I'd love it if you checked out my blog and added us to your circles.http://www.achristiansisterperspective.blogspot.com

    God Bless

    1. Thanks so much dear!! Don't give up on your passions. It may not always be easy, but try to find something (an image for instance), or a person that can keep you motivated. It's perfectly ok to have down moments, but let it be just that, a moment. A good song (up-beat) has also been known to put folks in better mood :) Stay blessed!! xoxo
