If you want a tool that will help you realize your goals and dreams. Vision boards are one of the best things to move you to your destination. Vision boards are collages of images and words that help you visualize your goals. When done properly vision boards give you clarity, purpose, and motivation.
Vision boards create a big picture or a vision for your intended life or goal. In order for a vision board to fulfill its purpose it must be visible to you daily; hence the term vision.
Visualization is a technique many successful people use to draw themselves closer to their goals. It accelerates your path to goal achievement. Visualization causes your brain to become aware of opportunities resources and ideas to help you achieve your goals. It attracts your desired goal to you like a magnet.
My Vision Board Experience
I created a vision board that included a conference I wanted to attend. I placed pictures of the conference name, hosts/speakers, the hotel room I wanted to stay in, and created a written affirmation.
Fast-forward several months, I was in my hotel room unpacking and turned around and realized I was in the hotel room and at the conference I wanted to attend from my vision board. My eyes began to water; you see I had been trying to attend this conference for many years and I was so grateful my goal had materialized.
Before, I didn’t believe I could afford to go to this event. However, I intended to go and opportunities came my way such as a payment plan, a new job and some contract work. I decided to dream big and visualize my dream via my vision board.
