Last year, I had a stirring in my heart to be more intentional about how I set my goals for 2020.
I was scrolling on IG and came across Foluso's post on the Vision Board event & her feedback that it had been a powerful tool for her & this seemed to align with what I was looking for.
On the day, the exercises prior to the actual build of the board helped me reflect on goals I wanted to achieve in every dimension of my life. This is where I experienced a breakthrough because specific to my career, I wasn't clear on what I wanted (or maybe was too scared of my actual vision 😂) so I found an image with flags of different nations in someone's palm & put that on my board for that dimension. I also put a picture of myself beside a picture of Michelle Obama speaking calling forth a platform that I would speak at that would blow my mind.
Foluso also asked us to select a word for the year which after praying about, I chose *flourish*. Needless to say that in a year where the entire world was in upheaval, I can truly say that I flourished! Not only did most of my "clearer" goals such as becoming a WIMBIZ Associate & passing a certification happen, even those that I couldn't articulate such as the flags in hand image for my career happened! An opportunity came up for me within my organisation to work on projects that cut across multiple countries - how awesome is that?
The Michelle Obama speaking engagement? It happened! I was invited to speak on a platform that had participants from 35+ countries ranging from Australia to Zimbabwe!
Did *every* goal happen? No, but enough did for me to recommend Vision Boarding especially as we go into 2021 with so much uncertainty around us in the world - it is a powerful tool!
