What is a Vision Board?
Vision board is like a dream board which you create to gain clarity about what you want to achieve. It helps in concentrating and focusing on the desires which we wish to accomplish in our lives to make it better. In literal terms it can be any chart, white board or any digital board like Google’s Jamboard application on which you can stick images, positive affirming statements and quotes that keep you pumped up to achieve whatever you want to achieve, do or have in your life.
Why make a vision board?
In this hustle bustle of our daily lives we are constantly running like machines without putting our brains into what we’re doing to ourselves. Instead of living everyday every moment, we wait for moments to live our life. So to make full use of our lives and narrate beautiful stories about our accomplishments to our children and grandchildren, we need to start our living every moment. Life is here in this moment, take a pause to live it, experience it and feel it right now. By creating and using dream or vision boards we find our sources of happiness and success by identifying your vision, giving them clarity and reinforcing or reiterating daily affirmations can help in keeping your attention on your intentions, on your desires and a sense of fulfillment.
How to make a Vision Board?
Like I have a vision of having a “better quality of life”, how do I quantify and say that this constitutes my definition of “better quality life”. When you are asked about giving specifics you really don’t know what, why and how?
Vision Board is a SMART way to envision
What your “better quality life” looks like. SMART vision board here states that your quotes and affirming statements should be Specific, Measurable, Actual, Realistic / Relevant and Time-bound.
So in order to create my dream or vision board, I need to look out for images in magazines, newspapers or over the internet that represent specific details of my dream i.e. ” better quality life” which might mean having a new car, holidays, home new relationship etc…
Once you chalk out your dreams, wishes, aspirations or deepest desires, the next step is to believe in them by using the power of affirmations and visualizations. These powerful techniques help in giving a shut up call to your Resistances and Reluctances. Positive Affirmations can help set yourself free from your limiting beliefs. It helps in keeping your distractions at bay and keeps you focused. They pump up your energies to start each day with a positive attitude. No matter what happens during your day, your vision board constantly reminds you of your goals and intentions. Their visual appeal hits you on both conscious and subconscious levels.
But only a vision board won’t help, you also need to create an “Action Board”.
What is an Action Board?
Well! It is a subsidiary tool to a vision board which helps in achieving our goals easily. All you need to do is follow the rule of three. That is very easy. Eat an elephant in bits and pieces.
- You need to create 3 parameters of success for each desired goal.
- Then list 3 steps for each desire on your vision board which you need to take every day in order to achieve your desired goal parameters.
This way you are chunking down your big goal into small bits, step by step guide towards your desired goals. This Action board will give you further clarity, commitment and determination to attain a better life.
Isn’t that fun. Why don’t you try it hands on and see it creating wonders for you.
I hope this simple tool will help you in achieving your desired life which is full of happiness and abundance. Be creative with your vision and action board.
3 cheers to your Empowerment!
