Why the Vision board isn’t as good as it used to be

Why the Vision board isn’t as good as it used to be

Vision boards become all the rage this time of year and yet I can’t get myself to make one anymore.

Yes, there once was a time where I would diligently find my vision in pictures, glue it to posterboard and infused it with intention.

And in the end, all it did was piss me off.

I get that for some vision boards are the best invention since sliced bread, but I think it’s okay to not have all the feels for them.

So why does the vision board not work for me and maybe even you?

It is lacking in the way I infuse feelings into my vision and transfer them to my goals.

I have experienced more success by simply writing out my vision and reading it often to get the feeling that I supposed a vision board could be doing for you.

By writing out what the year feel be and feel like by reserve engineering, aka looking back, I am giving my soul the position of leadership to guide me. Intuition is its right-hand man, confirming that this is the way to go.

The thing is, visions change… dreams change and therefore goals change.

I can literally write a new vision, during my writing hour in the morning, but a vision board takes way more time and to me feels a little inconvenient.

If a vision board works for you, that’s fantastic! Like seriously, I love that you have found something that works for you.

But if a vision board isn’t working for you and you are trying to find a different way in how to create the life you want, the goals – the dreams and so on, check out my “Create a Vision” Workshop.
Create a vision with the Rebel Soul Handbook
It’s a 45-minute video where I share with you how I’ve brought my vision to life and share with how to use the Rebel Soul Handbook – the tool I use every year to create my be, do and have goals.

You will also get the downloadable PDF file of the Rebel Soul Handbook, so you can print it and start your journey using your soul guidance to bring your vision to life.

Not only do I get to embody the person I want to be based on my vision, but I set goals that feel good in every fiber of my being… and it’s based on my inner guidance.

There is power in writing it down and if you’ve struggled with vision boards, it’s time to give the Rebel Soul Handbook a try.

Soul Approved: How to unleash yourself to have an awesome life

Soul Approved: How to unleash yourself to have an awesome life

If there is one thing I know all too well, it’s the feeling of the box getting smaller and the air is getting tighter. It’s becoming unmanageable to move and breathe within your space that you call life.

And it all comes from being chained to a life you think you are supposed to create because it’s what you should do.

  • You should do this for a living because it’s the safe way
  • You should act and behave this way or that way because it’s the nice way
  • You should put yourself first because everyone else is more important

But are not feeling like you’re suffocating and unable to move in the direction you want to go?

Yes, you have the option to stay chained in the conformity of your box where it feels cozy and safe – but at what cost?

Do you really want to look back at your life and say

  • I wish I did __________
  • I’m sad I didn’t _______
  • I regret not to ________

You’re tired and wonder what the heck this life is all about.

And the truth (it might hurt a little)

You’ve been chained to someone else’s idea of a life!

And the time has come for you to break free!

It’s time to unleash yourself!

The time has come that you stop

  • Being afraid of failure
  • Believing you’re not good enough
  • Talk yourself out of the things you want to do
  • Keeping your thoughts to yourself
  • Living a life designed by someone else

Deep down you know that you

  • Have incredible ideas
  • Have a voice that matters
  • Have to step out of the comfort zone

It isn’t enough to just exist anymore because you know there’s so much more to life than live in a box of shoulds.

No doubt unleashing yourself will be uncomfortable – all growing pains are – as you start being the person you’ve been all along but too afraid to share you with the world.

Your life can change at a moments notice.

Anytime you get in the car, you *could* get into an accident and yet here you still getting in the car every day.

So why not face your fears and do what you to want to do and start being true to yourself?

What do you have to lose?

Nothing!

Because you aren’t going to be further ahead if you fail but you are going to be wiser through the lessons that emerge through your willingness to put yourself first for a change.

Life is a journey and you will die one day – this is a fact!

So why not make this the best journey you can imagine by finally breaking free from the chains of conformity and embrace who you are?

When you’re ready to have an awesome life, it’s time to break those chains!

Remember, you’re one decision away!

Cheers,
Petra

Here is what I know about myself:

I get ideas, follow them and they either get completed or put to the wayside, but I take action. And this has allowed me to learn a lot of skills over the years, from building websites, starting businesses, creating my own coloring books and much more.

I have learned to work from the inside out, that when I am okay with myself when I can look in the mirror and say “I love you” and when I stay consistent with my boundaries but more importantly with my vision, things just fall into place.

I am a big dreamer and visionary. I am also a creative and a rebel.

I want to do things in a way that feels really good to me, from the inside out. And for me, this had been the missing link for a lot of years. I tried to follow other people’s structure and systems only to realize it doesn’t work that way.

It wasn’t always this way because I was intimidated by other people’s presence and success and so I kept saying “one day I will”. And then I heard other people talk about their dreams and goals and they too said: “one day I will”.

But life is funny sometimes because it provides you with events and lessons and you soon realize that “one day” will actually never arrive with one exception “one day you will die!”

And then not so many moons ago, I wrote my vision for 2017 and in that vision, I wrote about making an impact to help people, to support them with their dreams and goals and to give them the tools and resources they could want and need to make it all happen.

The Rebels Academy a community of like-minded people, who have big dreams and goals, who may or may not be intuitive, quirky but they are rebels, creatives, and dreamers.

The courses, programs, and guides within the community are the framework for you to build on. There is no right or wrong way to create the life you want and forging your own path.

Surround yourself with people like you sometimes we need a little help from our friends along the way. We need our own cheerleaders and pep-talk squad to make it through those hard days where you wonder if any of it will actually pay off.

Your one day is today!

It truly is time to start doing what you have always been talking about and stop wasting time just waiting for one day to happen.

Here’s what I know to be true:

Following someone else's system without your own personal vision and mission, isn't really going to create the life you want. Click To Tweet

I know this because I’ve followed other people’s system for a really long time, only to find myself frustrated.

My vision and personal mission are to give you the tools, guides, and resources to get started and to support you with daily check-ins and monthly coaching calls to answer questions and help you through the challenging days.

Everyone’s journey is different, and we all want to get there and often want to do it alone. But the hidden truth is that a community raises your confidence, supports you during the days you want to give – and together we achieve great things.

It's time to stop waiting and start doing. Click To Tweet

It’s time to stop saying “one day” or “some day”.

It’s time to start saying “Today is the day, that I will…”

A Manifesto of Sorts

Here’s what it means to be a rebel soul:

Rebels are driven by their vision for the future

Rebels are relentless

Rebels take back the power from their captors

Rebels are strongest together

Rebels see the spark in others and help fan it into flame

How I was catapulted into the journey of gratitude on a soul level

How I was catapulted into the journey of gratitude on a soul level

When you are in the trenches of life, of the unknown and in the struggle, you are given situations and even opportunities to change and to make the leap to grow.

There is no denying that I struggled in my life, that I was in the trenches more than I can think about in one moment. And yet I know that each experience was also a lesson.

And I suppose that when my youngest son was diagnosed with this rare genetic disorder, the Universe was trying to make sure I finally wake up.

Walk on the Level of your Soul

It was time to look at me, my life and the people that were in it and decide that I could no longer go on the way I had existed.

And this isn’t something that can be taught but I made the space to be guided by my soul.

It meant to become more present in each moment and to walk some of it alone and yet I was never truly alone.

But the experience, the feelings, the knowledge I held combined with my soul made an impact. It set me free from conformity and broke the chains trying to contain who I really am.

Soul walk doesn’t just happen!

It starts with a wake-up call! 8 years ago, on this day, my son received his first donated liver. A few days after he needed his second liver. The month that followed, they were hard.

The kind of hard that is incredibly difficult to put into words. For a moment, I saw him not breathing, and the doctors doing their best to bring him back.

It’s in that moment you lean into trust. Give your soul permission to guide you.

It’s knowing that in each moment you are okay!

It meant that because of the medical advances, technology my son could receive this amazing gift of life. There isn’t a day I don’t think about the families who made the choice. The choice to give the gift of life.

I am so grateful for the families but also the soul journey that followed because it would mean nothing if I don’t walk on the level of my soul.

I had to get naked from all the shit I was feeding my mind with. Reframe the messages and the norms I was taught.

It was time to begin a new draft. A new story but one that is co-authored by my soul.

This doesn’t mean the struggle stopped, quite the opposite. But it taught me that gratitude is much more than just being thankful for what is.

It is being grateful for the lessons, the experiences, and the journey. This kind of gratitude is truly hard to explain because is a feeling from within.

And here is my message to you:

Until you are truly ready for this kind of a soul walk – you will without a doubt, struggle, experience hardships and wonder when your life will change.

And your life will change when you are ready to go into the darkness and come out into the light.

It is dark and scary and all too often overwhelming because of the unknown and gazillion what-if’s swirling in your head.

But in this moment, what if you could be present and reflect on where you have been, where you are and where you are envisioning to be going with your life.

Gratitude isn’t something that can be taught.

It is something you experience.

It is something you feel deep in your existence.

Because I can tell you to write down what you are grateful for 10 times a day all day long, but unless you are ready to shed the bullshit it won’t matter and your soul will bring you that wake-up call if you don’t start listening to your soul now.

Allow your soul to guide you.

If you are ready to look at yourself in a different light, to really walk on the level of your soul, then join the Rebels Academy!

It’s filled with courses, programs, resources, and challenges to help you connect with you!
