It’s only November but already, planning is at the front of my mind. I’ve started thinking about my vision for 2017, what I’d like to accomplish and how I’d like to make a difference.
This week, I’d like to help inspire you to take action with an awesome and fun idea.
Create a Dream Jar!
Here’s what you do:
First, write down all the things that you aspire to accomplish in the coming year (or next 5 years). I’m going to use colored markers when I do this myself.
You can write down your dream ballet company or the promotion you’d like to receive, the next city you’d like to move to, body goals, technique goals, etc. Go big! Reach for even those seemingly far off goals.
Cut out each dream/goal and fold it in half.
Next, find a beautiful jar or get crafty and decorate a mason jar. Place all of your dreams inside your jar.
If it’s not quite filled to the brim – feel free to come up with some additional dreams!
Now, here’s the most important part. Every day, set aside a minute to spend with your dream jar. It might be helpful to do this at the same time each day.
Pick out one dream from the jar. Read that goal to yourself, close your eyes and visualize that dream as a reality. How would it feel for that dream to be real? What would your life be like? How would your situation be different? How would it be the same?
Believe it’s possible.
Your belief in your own ability is perhaps the biggest determining factor in your success. If you’re constantly telling yourself how impossible it is, I guarantee, it will be impossible.
I’d love to see your dream jar after you make it, send me a pic!!
