Just bear with me for a moment, I will explain how Netflix helps with goal setting. But first, let’s talk about visual goal setting.

Setting Goals With Vision Boards

I’ve discussed using vision boards several times in the past. Having something visual in front of you reminds you daily of what your goals are. Going through the process of creating the vision board can also help you refine your goals. Visual goal setting can be done in many ways.

Here is a Pinterest board with several vision board samples including one created for Netflix.

Visual Goal Setting With Netflix

Now you have created a vision board and you have it in front of you every day. What other tools can help you with visual goal setting? Visualization also involves imagining yourself completing those goals. Imagine what you will look like and feel like when you have reached your goals.

This is where Netflix can help you. It may be difficult to imagine something if you are unsure of what is involved. For example, my girls want to be dancers. Watching shows about dancing helps them visualize themselves in those same roles.

Here are some great shows to watch for different goals.

Becoming a Dancer

Watch Dance Moms on Netflix to help you visualize becoming a dancer. #StreamTeam #VisionBoard
