I use mediation every single day to calm my nerves and create focus around my goals and desired outcomes in life.

Another method I use on top of meditation is the use of a vision boards. Have you ever heard of them? They are images pasted on a board that represent your hopes, dreams, and goals. Studying these boards every days plants seeds of these goals within your subconscious mind.

Your subconscious mind is where all of your habits are formed. Combine these visualizations with mediation and self-affirmations, and the seed of your goal in your subconscious mind will begin to grow, sprouting a newly developed habit that is oriented towards your desired outcome, or goal.

John Assaraf does a better job of explaining this and showing you how to do it in his new book "The Complete Vision Board Kit." I downloaded the free chapter here at

Thank you for sharing this information...what perfect timing!....I was just thinking about how I need to write down my goals so I know what I am working towards...I work at a Yoga Retreat Center and I have seen vision boards being used with various yoga teachers....they are so much nicer (and inspiring!) to look at than a check list ... and I am exactly in a place in my life where I can apply this tool to help me work on my future goals and desires....I am so glad I came across your article!
