Write It Down: Keys To The Next LevelAdeshola Ezeokoli
Happy Monday! I hope you are having a fabulous day so far.
I would like to encourage everyone to have a vision board.
Sometimes we want change, we want to do certain things; have and be certain things, However, if we do no write them down, they stay as mere wishes, floating around in fantasy arena!
For example, I have a picture on my vision board of Jennifer Hudson, and right next to it, is my ideal weight goal. Overtime I look at it, it helps me stay on track and reminds me to stay on track.
I also have my affirmations/confessions, income goals; some specific goals re: book sales, and speaking engagements as well as a host of other things.
The Bible talks about how we need to write the vision and make it plain. I also have other things written down, in a book, that are not on my vision board. I look at those from time to time to remind myself of what I am aiming for.
In addition to having a vision board, it is helpful to write down your plans. I wrote my first ten year plan when I was in medical school. It kept me on track, and with not too may detours, I found myself where I said I would be ten years later!
Write down your intentions, your desires, your dreams, your plans, your goals, your expectations.
I think that writing things down helps bring them from the realm of the fantasy into the concrete.
You do not have to write them down at once. You can take time to be quiet, pray about them and over a period of time write them in a journal. After a few days, you can start to make your vision board. You can add and subtract as time goes on. Your goals may change. Also when those things come to pass, if you take them off your vision board; do not discard them. Any time you feel discouraged, look at them and give thanks to God.
” Write the vision, make it plain, that he may run who reads it” – Habakkuk 2:2 The Bible
