The Power Of A Vision Board
I believe the first time I heard the term vision board used was in the popular self-help movie The Secret. It was a new concept to me at the time, but seemed interesting, and I was very excited about implementing it into my life. I know there are many different methods out there you can use to help you go about achieving your dreams, but I feel this is definitely one of the most effective, because it’s a hands-on and creative experience that involves you. It’s similar to making a to-do list of what you need to get done for the day, but much more powerful, because you are consciously arranging the images of what you want your ideal life to look like or what you want to have. I feel this helps those images and goals stick in your mind, so that your subconscious can begin processing them and working to achieve them. And by placing your vision board somewhere that you will see it each day, you will further embed those images into your subconscious mind until those dreams and goals become your reality.
I have been using vision boards now for the past couple of years and it has been amazing how many neat things have happened because of them. My first board I created from magazine cutouts, basically a collage of items representing what I wanted to achieve. Now I create more minimilistic layouts of about eight or ten major items I would like to accomplish over the course of the year. I work a little bit every week at achieving each one of them and by the end of the year and I look back and confidently cross those items off my list, and look forward to my next years goals. I love vision boards and my results have been amazing. Instead of simply writing down and checking off your goals when you get to them, I encourage you to take a few hours one afternoon or evening to create a vision board and watch your life and success be transformed as a result.
