Driving With No End Destination In Mind
What is a vision board? I mean, it sounds so cool, businessy and technical. Well, it can be for business and it is pretty cool, but it’s extremely easy and VERY important.
A vision board is where you take images of items and you put them all in one place; preferably somewhere where you will be able to see it all the time.
The images and items are things that you want to achieve. So if you want a nice house in the countryside, a new car etc. You print or photograph the exact images of that things and put it on your vision board.
This is so that you can see what you want to achieve and it makes it feel that bit closer because you’re not just writing words down of what you want now; you can actually see it which then leads on to you imagining it and visualising yourself receiving/buying it.
I like to say that if you don’t have a vision board then it’s like your just getting into a car/bus or any other form of transport and you’re just along for the ride. You have no end destination in mind. To be honest, you don’t even know what you’re doing there! What’s the point in being lost? There is none if you can avoid it. Fair enough, you knew where you needed to be but took a wrong turn, I can deal with that, but setting yourself up to get lost…. that’s a bit ridiculous.
Whether you are in business or you have personal goals, then a vision board is for you. You need to have something that’s going to be a constant reminder why you’re doing the hard work you’re doing at the moment. It’s there to show you what you can achieve.
It almost feels like your very own declaration. Once you hang it up you’re saying to everyone who sees it that you can achieve. You have big dreams and goals and that you are going to make it. That’s a strong statement, and you’re not even physically saying it! It can keep you accountable and others who see it and know that you’re serious will also begin to keep you accountable when they see you starting to lose your positivity, or when you start to slow down. They will remind you of your dreams. They will ask you if the images on your vision board meant anything to you at all. And if they don’t anymore, then you need to change the images until you get something that excites you and that you have some sort of emotional connection to.
If you don’t know how to make a vision board, then stay tuned as I will share with you how I made mine.
Get dreaming. Get working. Get direction. Don’t give up.
