Have Vision! Make it your Mission!



By Marcia King-Gamble


Happy 2015!  It’s going to be a great year!   Now say that over and over and it’s bound to come true.

This month’s blog may well be a continuation of last month’s message.  You’ve heard me say I gave up making resolutions years ago, because I know the moment the words come out of my mouth, I am doomed.  I need a constant reminder to stay focused.   That’s why I create a Vision Board.  If you can see it you can be it! 





Years ago, before my first book was published, I would spend hours in book stores visualizing that prime spot on the romance shelf. I would wrap my hands around some poor unsuspecting author’s book, breathe in the unique scent of paper, and run my fingers up and down the spine.  That author’s book was mine. I owned it and I already felt what it was like to be a published novelist. 


Flash forward, when the call came, I was prepared.  Sure, I felt lucky and grateful, but not all that surprised.  I say this from a humble place. We attract the life and things we want. Of course my sister, the practical one, disagrees with me. She thinks life is about the choices we make.  She may very well be right, but I’ll stick to my guns. If you believe it, it will happen.  


I’ve always been a huge fan of The Secret; the 2006 bestselling book about the law of attraction and the power of positive thinking. I am the classic optimist. I believe positivity attracts positivity and negativity begets negativity.  Positive thinking can create life-changing results. This is something I truly believe, because it has happened to me.


That said, my plan this year is to have more disposable income so that I can do things I love; travel for one.  I juggle too many balls, and according to a New Age friend, my energy is way too scattered.  I kept that in mind when creating my vision board.  

  
Instead of dividing my board into quarters like I usually do, this year all my messages and pics are linked to my central theme of financial security.  The board is now displayed in a prominent place where I can look at it, focus, and know that it will happen. 



What are your goals this New Year? Have you written them down?  Have you dared to dream big dreams?

Believe and it will happen. Don’t let negativity or naysayers derail those dreams.  

Here I  am today (31 novels later) to tell you all things are possible. I re-released  another novel this month. His Golden Heart is about hopes and dreams.

So write down your goals! Create your map and believe in you!

 If you can see it, you can be it!  

Now go for it!

Marcia, Great post!!!

I have a picture of me in Borders standing where my books would be shelved. Looking at that picture now, I see the optimism and the sheer joy. It was only a matter of time!

Actually I see you on the same page as your sister, if what she is talking about is "choices". You are making the choice to believe and take action so you draw to you what you want.

I'm also a big fan of "The Secret" and also Louise Hay. Her story is remarkable and so inspiring!

You didn't get where you are on belief only. You had to write the books and submit to agents/editors and market/promo yourself and your writing.

Lots of choices along the way! But without the belief that being published will happen, on those discouraging days, we'd give up.

I'm a list maker so have my 2015 goals written out. Next on my long range planning is to create a Business Plan with 5 and 10 year goals.

Your post is so inspiring, Marcia!
I'm going to create a Vision Board. What a great way to focus your intentions! Our choices define us, including the choice to embrace positivity.

Thank you, ladies for putting things in perspective. Choices/beliefs you helped me see them as aligned. I never quite did before.
