The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: Don’t Let Indecision Block Your Vision
Quote of the Day:
“Most people fail at whatever they attempt because of an undecided heart. Should I? Should I not? Go forward? Go back? Success requires the emotional balance of a committed heart. When confronted with a challenge, the committed heart will search for a solution. The undecided heart searches for an escape. A committed heart does not wait for conditions to be exactly right. Why? Because conditions are never exactly right. Indecision limits the Almighty and His ability to perform miracles in your life. He has put the vision in you — proceed.” ~Andy Andrews
The Single Woman Says:
On September 18th (and I remember the date because it was my sister’s birthday), I revamped my Vision Board, creating a list of goals that I hoped to accomplish over the course of a few months. Many of you have asked what a Vision Board is and how to create your own. The way I created mine was actually very simple. I went to Wal-Mart, purchased a dry erase board, and went to town…listing off big goals, small goals, lofty goals, achievable goals, long-standing goals, career goals, relationship goals…I didn’t stop until I had listed every dream I wanted to realize over the next few months. One of my goals was “I will move to New York City,” and I added a photo of the Statue of Liberty. Another was “My business partner and I will own TheSingleWoman.com domain.” Still another was: “I will know, once and for all, if my Mr. Big and I are meant to be together.” And finally, I added a photo of my “dream guy,” or the guy who, to me, exemplifies all the qualities of the kind of man I’d like to end up with. And because I know you’re wondering who I chose – it was a photo of Donnie Wahlberg. J
A little over a week later, I found myself in, you guessed it, New York City…completely unexpectedly, and for the first time in about five years. Check! Granted, I wasn’t moving there, (at least not yet) but to be handed the opportunity to take a trip to NYC out of the blue and less than a week after I posted a photo of the Statue of Liberty on my Vision Board was a little more than coincidental. Over the course of that weekend, I also got to travel to Philly to attend a party that my “dream guy” Donnie Wahlberg was hosting. Check! I received my answer about my Mr. Big dilemma while in NYC, as he was in town on business – something I’ll write more about in my upcoming column, “Three Days in New York.” Check! AND…just a few days ago, my business partner and I finally secured the rights to TheSingleWoman.com, ending a year-long effort and bringing another of my goals off my Vision Board and into reality. So many other amazing and wonderful things have happened over the past month, I literally can’t list them all here. But I say all this to say: I urge you to create your own Vision Board. Map out your goals. Get as crazy and as bold and as out in left field as you dare. And then sit back and watch your dreams jump off the board and into existence, one by one by one.
You, right now, possess within you the power to make every last one of your dreams come true. You simply have to tap into that power by turning your dreams into VISION. Do it now. Don’t wait! Everything you want out of life IS possible, it IS attainable, it IS achievable. If your mind can conceive it and your heart can believe it, YOU can achieve it! Vision is a POWERFUL thing. Vision backed by intent is an even more powerful thing. But vision, backed by intent, coupled with action is an UNSTOPPABLE thing.
