Do you feel in touch with your dreams and the things you are called to do in this life?
If you’re feeling a little stuck or uninspired, try these things.
1. Get quiet. Spend some time meditating and envisioning what your future looks like and listen for divine inspiration.
2. Examine your strengths and gifts. Those are the breadcrumbs to finding our paths.
3. Focus on any beliefs you have that are limiting your ability to dream. Do you feel worthy of good things in your future? Do you have thoughts about what is available to you that cast a narrow boundary on your options? What can you do to invest in expanding your view to accept that life is for you, not against you? Spend some time thinking about ways you’ve been limiting yourself and work to expand your perspective.
4. Focus on how you want to feel, or how you might impact others, rather than material things. Our soul craves meaning which is deeper than material objects and we are more likely to achieve big things if we have altruistic visions in mind.
Widen Your Scope
God created you (and every person on planet Earth) with several parts. Like a pie with separate pieces, each part is critical to who you are; and all of these parts must be considered when you set goals.

Importance of Affirmations
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the benefits of positive affirmations, I’d like to explain a little about them. An affirmation is really anything you say or think. A lot of what we normally say and think is quite negative and doesn’t create good experiences for us. We have to retrain our thinking and speaking into positive patterns if we want to change our lives.
An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on the path to change. In essence, you’re saying to your subconscious mind: “I am taking responsibility. I am aware that there is something I can do to change.” When I talk about doing affirmations, I mean consciously choosing words that will either help eliminate something from your life or help create something new in your life.
Louise Hay is the queen of affirmations and she has a ton of really good ones here. Look at her examples and choose 2-3 of them or write your own that you can put on your vision board.
Why Vision Boards Work
What we focus on expands. When you create a vision board and place it in a space where you see it often, you essentially end up doing short visualization exercises throughout the day. Visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can do.
Our brains love pictures and we unconsciously work to achieve whatever messages we tell ourselves most.
So, what's the big secret to creating a vision board that works? It's simple: Your vision board should focus on how you want to feel, not just on things that you want. Don't get me wrong, it's great to include the material stuff, too. However, the more your board focuses on how you want to feel, the more it will come to life.
It doesn't have to be perfectly pretty or curated. Put thoughts and pictures that you want to bring into focus regularly. Don't go overboard. I think 3-5 themes is a sweet spot.
