#1: Set Goals
Problem: I have a tendency to make goals and write them on random pieces of paper. I stick the paper in my pocket, or in my purse or in a notebook and by the time a week has passed, I have misplaced the paper or even completely forgotten that I wrote the goals down.
Solution: Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a class on How to Make a Vision Board. What is a Vision Board? It is a visual representation of the things you want in life – the things you want to do, have or be. The purpose of the board is to activate the Law of Attraction. This law states that “we attract into our lives anything that we give attention to, regardless whether it be positive or negative.” 
My Vision Board has images of sassy women, a section titled “What I love about Me” with words like “making waves” and “breakthrough leader” listed under it. There are other words listed such as “budding beauty,” “community” and a phrase that states “One drop changes everything.”
I plan to hang this board in the bathroom I use to prepare for my day. Every morning, it will be a visual reminder of who I want to be, what I want to do and what I want to have. I cannot wait to see how these things begin to play out in my life!
You may be thinking right now, “Seriously Alana? Just setting goals isn’t going to change my life.” Well, I challenge you – If you don’t know what you want, how will you know when you have attained it?
Creating collages not your thang? Try writing your goals on a sheet of paper and taping them to the wall beside your bathroom mirror, on your car dashboard or next your computer monitor. I bet you’ll begin to see changes within weeks.
