FULLY Envision the year!
(Above is my 2018 Board.. I nailed 90% of it. This year I’ve got 2 serious game changers to nail 110% of it…
Game changers are steps 3, 4 & 5 in the guide below. Just 5 steps!
I’m talking bout making some epic shit happen this year..yeah I wanna nail the One Arm Push Up by May.. but more importantly I wanna elevate my personal relationships, become more emotionally healthy, make better money and get smarter! Scroll down to see all the epic shit I’m gonna make happen this year
( I have 4 categories – Physical, Heart, Emotional & Brain)
I’ll share my completed 2019 vision board in a few days on my FB page CLICK HERE for my page
TO make your own epic shit happen make a
Vision Board that Works
Now, stay with me here – I have a spin on this that makes this simple tool totally work. You GOTTA take on #3 and #4 to totally nail 2019!
You’re gonna DIG-
- Get Deliberate – Carefully consider what you want
- Get Intentional – Tape on the images, write out the words. Put them in front of you every day
- Get Going – Tack this fucker up, love what you see and take action
This is what epic humans do ( Martin Luther King, Ghandi..) Yup – they totally laid on their living room floors and made vision boards.
Maybe not, but they took time to sit back and envision exactly what they wanted. Once they SAW it all clearly – they added the Intentions and Got GOING. It’s YOUR Time!
“If it’s important enough to live by it’s important enough to put in place”
What is important enough for you to put in place, to practice consistently
**This WILL work IF you take the time to tackle steps 4& 5 – Those are the game changers! **
Scroll down and DO this to own 2019
1. Buy a big white poster board
(Cheap from Bartells- mine was $0.99, Fred Meyer, Target…) gather up some colored pencils a Sharpie, pair of scissors and some scotch tape
2. Collect Images of what you wanna bring into your life this next year.
I like scrolling through my phone for good memories that I want more of/ need to sustain me. For example people in your life you should connect with more often, coaches/guides you need to check in with to stay awesome/get stronger (on any level)
Practices you need to keep doing: kettlebell, yoga, playing bass, singing, reading, researching, driving lessons 🙂
After you have those – Google image search – or thumb through some cool magazines to find stuff you want for yourself.. maybe a kitchen remodel, some awesome new people in your life, skinny jeans, a more flexible body, more money.. ANything! Have fun with this
3. The GAME CHANGER !
Write out EXACTLY what you have to do to get AND keep each thing in your life
ex: By pullups – I put “every damn day” (see last years board above) – And I did them.. every damn day! I got going last year and nailed it- epic shit happened 🙂 Now I can do 5 hardstyle tactical pullups in a row (I put in the work)- Last year I could only do 3
One of my 2019 physical goals is to nail the One Arm Push Up – I’ve got an awesome photo to inspire me- Buuut I MUST do #5 to make this happen
4. Put down exactly how much time you must give to that intention
Each thing you put on takes time.
Some may take more time than others, be super realistic about what you put up for yourself.
Do you have the time and resources to totally nail THIS intention?
For me to nail the One arm Push UP by mid April= 5 hours a week training
I’ve got to follow the protocol given to me by the Pro’s – Coach Karen Smith (Bodyweight Expert) and Coach Andrea U- Shi Chang.
They’ve laid out what I must do.
6 times a week 30 mins form practice + different reps each day to a raised surface with perfect form
+ I must video myself once a week , send into Coach Karen every 3 weeks. She’s in Texas
AND I must show up for Sessions with Coach Andrea (here in Seattle) so I have eyes on me and she can keep me in line
I must invest a lot of time and money ($180/ hour session) to get what I want! Left to my own devices – this will never happen – I need to own up, stay accountable and supported for this to happen.
5. SCHEDULE IT!
If you don’t schedule it – It doesn’t exist. This is you taking action – now you just gotta show up. So text your friends – line up those dates, Email your coaches and guides – put the dates and times down 1 month at a time.
See how this works?
Take a critical eye to the stuff you put on your vision board.
- Can you dedicate the time to what you want?
- Will you have the energy and money to sustain this?
- Do you care enough to keep it up? Ya gotta give at least two shits about each thing:)
If you need some more ideas, examples- Here’s what I’ve got set up for mine- I put out categories with what I must put into each one
I’ll Share the Completed Board with you on Facebook this Wednesday- Jan 2nd. CLICK HERE to for my FB page
There for sure will land on my board
- 7.5 hours sleep 5 mights a week. 8 hours 2 nights a week
- Nailing the One Arm Push UP
Practicing 6x a week. Following my coaches protocol program she made for me – 6 days a week – working on perfect push up form 2 hands – Just 3 total. 3 days a week – working on a low surface 1-5 pushups.
So total time weekly = 3 hours a week
- Easily landing crow pose in yoga-
practicing this move 3x , two – three times a week = half hour a week on my own PLUS
Keeping up yoga practice with classes at Shefayoga – with Teacher Leah Zaccaria = 2.5 hours a week – monthly = $144/ month
- Doing the snatch test with a 20 Kg by next October ( 5 mins- 100 snatches at 20 Kg) =
2x a week practice with the 18 kg – till I can hit 100 , then stepping up to the 20 and getting 50 in 5 mins by end of June = 15 mins / week
- Not wrecking myself: Massages/ Recovery/ Rolling –
As I train for One arm push up, heavier snatches – gonna hit reset and let my body recover = rolling, massage, more sleep!
- Keeping Lean and Increasing Strength
Fasting – Getting up to 14 hours between last foods and first foods the next day. Means eating dinner by 6 PM Sun – Thurs

Keeping up time with my amazing boyfriend, he’s worth it, I’m worth it! Plus what we have going is totally worth it
Keeping up time with good friends I don’t see so often and mean a lot to me. My friends are my family
- For example – My guy pal Gannon, will go on my board and I will check in with him once a month – he’s in San Fran and we can talk for hours!
- Liz – lives an hour away – we need to hang out in person for a good chunk of time once at least every 6 weeks
Keeping in social time with students (clients) connecting with people that vibe with me and fill me with joy daily = One hang out (2-3hours) Once every 6 weeks
