Draw Your Future
For the past few summers, my good friend has been taking me wakeboarding on his boat.
Wakeboarding is a lot of fun, I have improved quite a bit over the past couple years but not as
much as I would like. One big thing with wakeboarding is being able to clear the wake, that is to
jump from one side of the boat’s wake to the other side of the boat’s wake. When you look at it, it
may seem easy, I see my friend do it and he makes it look simple. It’s a difficult feat that takes
strength and commitment. This past summer I had only gone out on the boat a few times and my
main goal was to clear the wake. Try after try I would jump from one wake but never land on the
other side. I would land somewhere in the middle, I wasn’t going fast enough to make it to the
other side. The speed you need to get over the entire wake is a lot, it’s scary to experience it. I
realized I was afraid to get up to the speed that I needed to get over the wake. I wasn’t committing
entirely to clear the wake. Fear was holding me back, it holds me back with a lot of things,
especially physical activities because I have been hurt before and I was out of work for a few
weeks. It’s something that gets under my skin and it’s extremely difficult to get past the fear of
The picture that I drew is a goal of mine I’ve been wanting to accomplish for a
while. I’ve been wanting to be able to jump over the wake while I am
wakeboarding. It seems like a small goal but it’s more than just being able to jump
over a wake. I want to conquer my fears, and committing to jump over the wake is
a perfect place to start. Fear is something that gets in my way a lot. When I do
physical activities like snowboarding, wakeboarding, and dirt bike riding, my fear
prevents me from improving myself beyond a certain point. I can do small jumps
or simple tricks but I can never get past that point. In social interactions, my fear
prevents me from interacting with people I am not familiar with, and speaking in
front of a group of people. If I speak in front of people, I get really hot inside, I can
feel myself turn red, and I may forget words that I want to say. It’s uncomfortable
for me and I attribute it to fear. In life my fear prevents me from moving forward, I
am afraid to get a new job because I feel I am inadequate and I am comfortable at
my current job. My goal this summer is to clear the wake. It will be my first step in
many steps that I need to take to be able to conquer my fears. Conquering my fears
will open up doors to new opportunities and put my life on a better track.
Using the method provided, I dreamt up my new reality. In my new current reality there is not much going on,
I go to school and I work a rather boring retail job. I drew myself with an unhappy face because, like I said
before, I am not in a happy place in my life at the current moment, and I just want to be happy but I am not
there at the moment. In the other side I drew myself with a smile because I am envisioning myself being
happy and overall content with my life. I work in retail, so I tried to draw a target, which is pretty self
explanatory. The others that surround me are the guests that don’t even say thank you when I help them, it just
makes me feel so horrible, it’s a bad feeling and I detest that feeling. I also drew some books because I am still
in school, the money sign is due to all the school fees that I pay for. In the other side, I crossed out the money
sings because I wish to be done with paying for ridiculous school fees in the upcoming next two years. I also
drew a diploma next to me because I know that in two years I will be graduating from San Jose State
University with a Bachelors in Behavioral Science.. This is my last quarter at East Bay, unfortunately, I will
be transferring to SJSU this fall and my goal graduation date is May 2018. I graduated high school in 2013,
and to graduate college in 2018 with absolutely no student loans is my current goal that I know I will be
achieving. I am still questioning if I should continue to further my education by acquiring a Masters in Social
Work, with that I idea I have to wait and find out later.
I am a very curious person, so I have done a lot of research on visualization and
manifestation. What we did was a vision board, and we have to manifest those
dreams into reality. I have unconsciously done that before, when I visualized
driving the car that I currently drive. I visualized transferring to university, and I
did. Drawing my current reality is quite eye opening, I realized just how
unhappy I am in my job. The source of that unhappiness is something I am
currently trying to destroy, but I do not know if the unhappiness comes from how
bad retail is or the fact that my whole paycheck disappears as soon as I get it. I
am trying my best to envision myself in a better paying job where I am happy. I
wish I could say that I don’t want to focus a lot on the money aspect in my new
reality, but I have to. Living in the Bay Area is astronomical hard, and I do worry
a lot about money. I am twenty years old, and I would rather stay home on my
days off than go out because I know it is not wise to spend money at moment as
as a college student.
A vision or dream that I want to turn into reality is to be successful in life.. When I mean successful in life I don’t only mean
being financialy stable but also having a family and just being filled with happiness and contentment in that future present
day. I’m trying my best now so I can be able to have a better future. There are steps to having a better life which is first, to
graduate, then get a masters degree, then find a job. As well as hopefully in the timeframe I will find that special someone.
I always tell my friends and family that I want to be successful in life and just like in the video there are some instances
where I’m doing something that is stopping me from my dream. For instance, the first step into making my dream possible
is to graduate. There are times when I slack off in school. I question my whole motive in college, for instance there are
times when I tell myself “Why do I need to finish college, my parents didn’t” except eventually I get back on track.
I need to see it, believe it. and act on it. In the video they stated that when people see a picture, it can create movement. A
picture can fill your heart and create a deep desire to do something. So the task that was given was to draw my vision
board. I drew my current state as well as my desired new reality.
In the picture when talking about my current state you can see that I put myself and only myself. I put a school building
that is bigger than me because I feel that school is kicking my butt. Then I also put the golden gate bridge hopefully you
can see it as imitating the Golden Gate bridge because I am currently in the bay area.
Then when you take a look at my desired new reality, I tried drawing an airplane, because I hope to travel one day and not
just be stuck in the bay area. I drew me and another person because I hope one day I will have someone there for me. I also
drew another me with a graduation cap on because I want it to signify that I made it all the way to a masters degree. If you
notice with my current state, I only drew the pictures as for my desired new reality I filled it with all types of color. I also
added words of motivation because I want to feel motivated in the future. As well as when looking at the picture I’ll always
remember to be happy, stay faithful, loyal and most of all value the friendships and family that you have. When looking at
this picture, I need to see it, believe it and act on it. I need to know my worth and make a change in life. I need to be doing
the boldest thing. I need to make my dream come true.
