What is a vision board?
A vision board is a Visual blueprint of your life!
Do you believe that life just happens to you?
Or do you believe that you are in full control of your destiny.
It is very simple...
YOU envision your success,
YOU focus on your success,
YOU will have your success.
FOCUS is Key!
The only way to stay focussed is to plan.
Your vision board clarifies your dreams and transforms them into reality. It puts you out there by making your dreams visible to you and the world on a daily basis. We spend so much of our lives trying to conform to what other people think we should be. Break through that barrier by putting everything you truly want on your Vision board.
Putting all your dreams and aspirations for your friends and family to see will keep you on the right path every time.
Why a vision board?
All our lives we imagine the things we want to achieve. The person you want to become, the luxuries, the houses, the amazing life experiences you want to have. It is all about taking the invisible and making it real.
A vision board allows you to become your own mentor. A mentor is someone who guides you in the right direction. Who doesn’t let you play the role of the victim and who tells you to stop with the stories to why you can’t have what you want; and to just to pick yourself up and do it.
For example, anytime I feel upset, annoyed, frustrated or angry. I look to my vision board to put me back in perspective and to re-focus. It reminds me of all the good qualities that I envision myself having. And If I’m not living life to my own standards, then I’m lying to myself. And the thought of being a talker instead of a doer changes my state for the better every single time.
Why is it when we focus on something, it almost always happens. The reason is we live life on a conscious and sub-conscious level. Our sub-conscious works under the radar, always looking for ways to achieve our goals and true intentions whether they are good or bad. And our conscious is the higher part of ourselves that focuses on the present moment.
Think of your conscious and sub-conscious as the hardware of a computer. The computer will only perform as well as the software that is installed on it. Now think of the vision board as your empowering software. By reading your vision board out loud.
YOU are programming your conscious and subconscious thoughts with positive, inspirational software.
THE FACT IS... “WORDS ARE POWER!”
When you read out loud all the positive things on your vision board, you are programming your conscious and subconscious for success.
You are telling the universe to attract all the good things you want in life and you decide to choose positive energy over negative energy.
You are erasing the negative, disempowering thoughts and feelings from your sub-conscious and replacing them with positive energy.
The Key is to read it OUT LOUD!
If you are afraid that someone is going to hear you, talk even louder! Breaking out of the fear of what other people think will empower you. Seeing and verbalizing what you want plants the seeds and draws your goals closer to you every day.
When does a vision board not work?
When it is so boring and tedious to make, you procrastinate so much that it never gets done. Or you do finish it; but the board is so boring to look at that it does not ignite any drive in you. It is just a bunch of paper cut outs on a cork board.
It does not work when there is no emotional content. We live life through our emotions. The quality of our life is in direct proportion to how we feel on a daily basis. Without powerful quotes or stories to read, the vision board becomes impersonal and boring.
A Board full of materialistic things is not inspirational. A picture is only inspirational when you attach an emotion or story to it.
A vision board does not work when you are uncomfortable displaying it. Most people keep their vision boards in their private office or on the computer so no one else can see it.
Again it comes down to putting yourself out there for the world to see and being proud of your dreams.
A vision board does not work when you do not believe in the power of intention. Changing your negative programming is key. If you believe your life is controlled by other people and life is too hard, it will be!
But if you believe you will live an amazing life, you will!
Ask yourself right now, does your vision board inspire you? Or do you only look at it when you are bored?
If you don’t train to believe in yourself, nothing in this world can help you. It starts with imagining the person you want to become and focusing on it every single day.
Be honest with yourself…
Are you truly happy and fufilled? Or are you sitting and waiting for someone or something to create that for you. Start living the life you want, instead of focusing on what you don’t want.
Create a vision board for yourself as a means to keep focused, motivated and excited about your life. Sometimes we forget how fortunate we are to live in a country with so much opportunity. It saddens me to see people day in and day out unhappy with their life. Complaining and whining about their story to why they can’t achieve.
Give up your story!
Everybody has that negative voice which tells you all these stories and reasons to why you can not have what you want.
No one says you have to listen to that negative voice that holds you back. Yes it is there to protect you, but don’t let it run your life. Be conscious enough to realize that you control your thoughts and reactions.
Use that negative voice and turn it into the fire you need to change. It’s been said so many times, “comfort kills”. When you are comfortable and safe, you stop growing as a person.
Being uncomfortable is exactly where I love to be!
I develop so much faster at anything once I feel uncomfortable. My mind forces me to keep doing whatever it is I am focusing on so that I don’t feel uncomfortable anymore. Once I feel comfortable doing it, I’m on to the next challenge. The whole cycle repeats it self and I begin to develop exponentially.
Step out of the comfort zone and start pursuing your dreams. Sometimes your dreams are totally unreasonable. But whether it makes sense or not, it is something you need to do to be fulfilled. Don’t waste the next 30 years of your life wishing you can have your dreams. Step up and just go for it and live your life with no regrets.
I’m not here to preach to you. But what I want you to realize is how powerful you can be if you focus on yourself and what you truly desire in life. Be courageous and step out of your comfort zone.
Know no matter what happens in the next 30 years; You will look back at your life with no regrets and pass on a legacy which will inspire your family and friends to pursue their own dreams.
All the best
