Vision Board


Quite a few people have asked me about an explanation to my vision board. I posted a few pictures of it on Instagram. It’s only partially done because this is my BUSINESS vision board. Later this month, I plan on doing a personal vision board that will include my family, friends, health and beauty.


What exactly is visualization? Well, it’s basically imagining things as a means to exercise your mind into believing that what you imagine will come to fruition. A vision board helps with VISUALIZATION.


I’ve been using visualization as a tool since I’ve been an athlete. It became a routine for me before and after games/matches/meets. Sometimes, depending on the sport, I’d use visualization in the middle of a competition. It wasn’t until I got to college that I met other athletes who used the same kind of “ritual” for their own sport. It was then that I realized that I wasn’t so different from other athletes as I had thought. Yes, I was unique in my own right on many levels, but was the same in terms of techniques, routines and fundamentalism in regards to visualization as a tool to reach and achieve goals. Think about it. The greatest athletes visualize themselves in practice going through game scenarios. They create plays and scenarios in their minds and think of many options to overcome obstacles that could potentially occur. For basketball, every player has visualized the “buzzer beater” shot or the “clutch” shot. Every player has visualized how they make free throws. Every football player has imagined the “hail mary” play to go in their favor. Every gymnast has imagined choreographing the perfect routine with an dismount that will score a 10.0. Every diver has envisioned a splashless dive.


In my adulthood, I watched The Secret and learned that what I had already been doing for years, was how the greatest minds, inventors and philosophers used visualization to achieve what we now all see as history.


Now that I’ve hung up my athletic gear, I’m learning to use visualization in every aspect of my life. Over the years I’ve also learned that the energy one puts out is the energy you get in return. So now, I try to be careful with what I say, how I say it and to whom I’m saying it because I want to make sure that same energy comes back to me as I released it.


When I first watched The Secret, I created my first vision board. The pictures in this blog are my second vision board (I completed/achieved 80% of what was on my first. I felt like it was due time for a new one because I have met some amazing people since my first board. The pictures and quotes in my vision boards represent where, what and who will come into my life. My current vision board hangs above my desk in my home office. I see it every day and always take a few minutes to envision these things in my life as well as FEEL what it will feel like to have these things. It may take weeks, months or years to attain some things but PATIENCE is definitely important when it come to my dreams. I know He will reward me when I am ready. For now, it’s about staying on my grind and welcoming not just the blessings that come from life, but also the “lessons”.


I recommend that everyone make a vision board. Be it for business, career, family, health or even for room decor, seeing the things you dream to have is one way for one to think positive. Channeling your energy into a more positive outlet is always better than channeling it into a negative light. Try it. It won’t hurt.

What will you put on your vision board?

Until next post,

    I’ve heard of this Secret concept before, but never actually seen it applied. It’s an interesting concept. Will you ever post a picture of your previous board?

    Great post!

Several of these young men are now realizing that #trackandfield should’ve been a major part of their lives earlier on in their #athletic careers at HF. Tomorrow they lay it all on the track at the @ihsa_il Boys State Final Meet. Last week, our HF Girls Team were Runners Up. This week I’m praying our boys pull out a #team win. 💪🏾 #GoVikings #hfboystrackandfield #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife #coach #athlete

In March 2017, @pttheshaq introduced @clark_the_shark10 to #shotput and #discus. Brett Young, father of #KDYoung of @gamecockthrows invited her out to a session we had scheduled May 2017 to prepare her for 2017 @usatf Jr. Nationals out in Sacramento. The rest is history.... Thank you to the Mount Pulaski Board Members 🏛for recognizing Cassidy Clark on her recent athletic achievements 🥇🥈at the 2018 #IESA #TrackAndField #StateChampionship Meet. 🔥💣 I absolutely am blessed and honored to be her #coach.

It’s a tough pill to swallow knowing that our girls were the 3A State Runners Up last year and again this year. Last year we fell short by 4 pts and this year we fell short by 6 pts. Thank you @ihsa_il for running a wonderful meet and thank you @eiu for being a wonderfully organized host! This summer is about getting faster, stronger and better. I’m grateful for this @hfvikinggirlstf staff, these hard working girls and especially our Athletic Director Dan Vosnos.

💿⚫️🚨STATE CHAMPION ALERT🚨⚫️💿 Congratulations to Cassidy Clark @clark_the_shark10 of Mt. Pulaski Middle School on winning 🥇the #ShotPut for IESA 8th Grade Girls with a PR of 33’7.5” and 🥈placing 2nd in #discus with a throw of 100’3”. Everyone knows the throw events are about inches. Going into the finals for shot put she sat in 2nd place. No one in the finals had improved their distance. 😔Her PR coming into the state meet was 32’11” 👍🏾of which she threw the previous weekend at the sectional meet. In order for her to take 1st place, she needed to throw beyond 33’5”... 6” more from her PR. 🤔 Seeing her launch the shot out there was beautiful. The eruption of her entire family and friends speaks for itself. We knew she had punched a powerful one out there, we just didn’t know how far... 🗣Turn the volume up to hear it all play out!🗣 Thank you to the Clark Family and Friends for such an awesome support base for Cassidy. It’s absolutely amazing and humbling to be her coach. Thank you Coach Johnson of @aretethrowsnation and Coach Angel @coachangeldls for your ongoing support and efforts. #ATNMidwest truly appreciates everything you do for the greater good of this sport and the #throw events! #atn #aretethrowsnation #tcr #throwingchainreaction #trackandfield #tracklife #tracknation #fieldnation #thrownation
The Track Season in Review: 2 weeks left with my @hfvikingsthrows boys. This season has been one to remember! Being a part of both the 2018 HF Boys and HF Girls Track & Field programs has been an honor and learning experience. Both Head Coaches have put in a lot of work preparing their teams for a successful season. State is this week for the girls and next week for the boys. I’m excited to get back to the drawing board for the off season once the season has come to an official end. If they thought weights during the season was tough, it’s about to get a WHOLE LOT MORE FUN! 😏 #GoVikings #HFTrackandField #RedSmoke #HFFamily #HFVikingsThrows #HFThrows #TrackAndField #FieldNation #TrackNation #TrackLife #Blessed
To my beloved athletes: The greatest part about being a #coach is getting to know my athletes and their families. I consider each and every athlete I work with my child. My compassion for each athlete working to better themselves comes from a motherly perspective. Thank you to every athlete I’ve worked with over the near decade I’ve been coaching and personal training! I truly appreciate your time, effort, work ethic and especially your love in return. I’m humbled by the trust and confidence each of you give me. Lord knows I’m grateful for the gift with which He’s blessed me and in return I’m able to share with all you talented throwers. Mālo aupito! Ofa lahi atu, Coach #coach #mother #athletes #thankful #happymothersday #icantfiteveryoneinthispost 🤦🏽‍♀️lol
