Jump Start Your Dreams

If you think that vision boards are just for people who are unmotivated or unambitious, then you are missing out on a tool that may just transform your personal and professional life. Vision boards may be simple, but they are undeniably effective. No matter what it is that you are manifesting, vision boards are an easy and tangible way to bring your goals and dreams into fruition. All you really need are dreams that really motivate you, photos, some positive affirmations and a little cork.

Why Vision Boards?

One of the biggest challenges that many  people struggle with is how they can focus their thoughts and their ambitious in a more organized way. When you are a true “go-getter” it may seem like there are millions of dreams, desires, thoughts and ideas circling around in your head at any given moment.

Vision boards act as a funnel to help focus some of the bigger thoughts and ideas and to get them organized in one individual and inspiring board. The reason that these boards work so well and why they are so popular is because they harness the power of the visualization forms of mental exercise out there.

Visualization can be the difference between being ambitious enough to want something and actually following through. Visualization brings an extra sense of motivation as it helps you feel, visualize and imagine not only what you want to achieve, but your life once you have achieved that goal. The board acts to inspire you to move towards the goals that you have for yourself. It helps you stay on track and stay focused and act as a reminder for what you are working towards each and every day. It can be the difference between what you are doing on a daily basis to make your long-term goals a reality.

Getting a Jump Start on Your Dream

One of the biggest reasons that so many people today are relying on vision boards and doing so with great success is because they provide a type of “jump start” in reaching your goals. Every person knows the old adage that taking the first step is the hardest, and there is a great deal of truth to that, especially when it comes to working towards big dreams.

You may know that you want to open up your own store someday but it can seem like such a distant dream that you have no idea where or how to start, because that dream seems so big. A vision board is your jumping off point.

If you don’t even know where to start or where to begin with a big, long-term goal, make a vision board. It will turn that thought or wish that you have into a real goal and a real vision and it will start bringing that sense of inspiration into your life each and every day so you can get closer and closer to the life that you want. Your vision board gives you that first little push and it can help you create a map towards achieving your dreams, for the truly ambitious many times this is all they need to start digging in and doing the work towards making those dreams a reality.

Vision Boards

A Focus on Feeling

A vision board provides a unique benefit because it focuses on feelings and emotions. When you complete a vision board correctly it touches not only upon the material things that you want for your future but on how you want to feel. This is why vision boards should not only include pictures but affirmations and inspirational words as well.

Ambitious people can attest to, working hard to achieve a goal typically isn’t the challenge. This is why so many ambitious people have already achieved so much. What can be challenging is finding a more emotional connection to that which they want to achieve. Bringing in feeling and emotion can only enhance an already-ambitious person’s work ethic and ability to achieve what they have always wanted.

Vision boards push people outside their comfort zone, they help put dreams into reality and they give people the strength to push past nay-sayers and negativity and to start putting the positivity in their lives that they need to achieve their goals. Chances are you already have the drive and ambition, let the vision board bring the right feelings into the mix.

Keeping Hard Workers on Track

If you are an ambitious person by nature, then hard work likely isn’t your problem. However, there is one drawback that some ambitious people face when it comes to reaching their long-term goals. When you aren’t afraid to go after what you want, sometimes, your long term goals can fall by the wayside of what is in front of you.

A vision board  can help remind you of the big, important, long-term visions for your future and help you remember that the things you are doing now in your day-to-day life are really helping you work towards this bigger vision you have for yourself for the future.

Putting the Right Energy into Your Future

A vision board can be the manifestation tool that any ambitious person needs to make some of their real big goals come true. These boards are about who you want to be as a person and what you want to do and have. The promotion, the car and the big house you have always wanted for yourself have always been there, but creating a vision board about these things helps you visualize your life with these things in them.

Seeing these things and picturing yourself with these things helps you give them more attention on a regular basis, so that you intentionally and unintentionally put more energy into bringing them into fruition. It is a simple philosophy and an even simpler approach but it can be just the secret weapon every ambitious person needs to bring even more success, positivity and good fortune to their lives.

Can you put your love and care or inspiration and gifts into action through giving in some way?

Is there someone in particular you’ve been withholding love or giving from, or you could express more of your love to in some way? Or have you been shying away from life in general and not sharing your gifts, presence or love in some way? Have you been ‘too busy’ and not found the time for those people who matter to you? The greatest gift you have to give people is YOU! Are you giving you? Are you there for people?

There are many ways you can give and share. Do so in a way that brings you joy and does not feel like a sacrifice, as that is not what true giving is about.

What’s important here is that this giving is genuine and heartfelt. Not talking about martyr-hood or obligation here. I’m talking about sharing and expressing your love and care in a way that feels meaningful to you, which is a blessing to others, as well as yourself.

Giving when your heart isn’t in it, or giving-to-get (which isn’t giving at all), or giving out of a feeling of duty or obligation is also not authentic giving, and the person at the ‘receiving end’ won’t feel really like they’ve been given to, as what is received most is the energy and intention behind the giving. That’s why even the smallest act or gift can have the biggest impact if coming from a loving place.

Get in touch with the love and care you have for someone and act from this place.

Let your abundance shine by giving to others, not just in the tangible physical sense, but by giving of who you are and expressing your love, appreciation and gratitude to those around you. You can give in energy, in your thoughts, blessings and well-wishes too, and send love from a distance, silently even.

There are many ways you can give, and it’s certainly not money-bound.

You can give of your time, appreciation, care, well wishes, talent, prayers, nurturing, inspirations, attention, information, touch, wisdom, hope, support, thoughts, blessings, and so on. You may also want to give some of your income away, such as through tithing 10% to a charity each month if you feel financially comfortable to do so.

Give in a way that feels true to you.

5 Reasons To Drink Kombucha Often

Kombucha, a fermented tea with a signature vinegary flavor and a key ingredient in the production that looks like a mysterious giant mushroom.

The drink has been around for thousands of years and is believed to have originated in Asia. It’s been popular with health food enthusiasts for years. But it’s recently become mainstream, you can find it in grocery stores.

Detoxing from addictive substances:

Kombucha helps replace the addictive quality of diet pop and highly processed foods. Nothing else worked to detox me from those addictive chemicals that kept me craving these foods and harming the cells of my body. It was kombucha that assisted my liver in detoxing me and allowing me to crave healthy foods and drinks.  Addictions and cravings for unhealthy foods and drinks will become a thing of the past as you create new microbes that make you crave healthy foods.

Hormone help:

When you have a lot of excess hormones, be it premenstrual symptoms, perimenopause, or menopause, kombucha is wonderful in helping to eliminate excess estrogen and other hormones that are out of balance. Excess hormones are eliminated through the liver and digestive tract. Kombucha assists the liver in detoxification and the probiotics in kombucha help with elimination through the digestive tract.


Kombucha is something  to help with low energy and detoxification from excess pollen. Ingesting more microbes assists the immune system and helps the adrenals cope with foreign invaders such as pollen. Ginger kombucha is one that seems to be the most effective.

Sore throat and coughs:

Kombucha is a wonderful way to soothe anybody that has a sore throat or cough and also load the body with probiotics. It seems to clear the junk off the back of the throat and helps clear the sinuses too.  It will also support your lymphatic system as it removes the viruses and pathogens that have affected your body.

Joint health:

Kombucha is packed with glucosamine which helps prevent joint damage by supporting the preservation of collagen. It does this by increasing hyaluronic acid, which is important for the lubrication of your joints.
