A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on what truly matters to you. Literally, a vision board is a board on which you display photos or images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life. Creating a dedicated space that displays what you want, expands your focus, and does bring it to life. When you create a vision board and place it in a space where you see it often, you essentially end up doing quick visualization exercises throughout the day.
Visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises that you can do. It is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are sending a powerful frequency out into the Universe.
Whether you believe that or not, visualization works. Olympic athletes have been using it for decades to improve their performance, and Psychology Today reported that the brain patterns are activated similarly regardless if the lifter lifts heavy weights or just imagined (visualized) doing the same.
Many celebrities experienced this universal power, like for example Jim Carrey who wrote himself a cheque for a 10 Million Dollars at the beginning of his career, and he kept it in his wallet giving himself a 3 year to achieve it. Guess what? He found out that he will make this amount for his fir big movie Dumb & Dumber right on time. He is just one out of many …
So, what’s the big secret to creating a vision board that works?
It’s simple: Emotions
By representing your goals with photos and images you will strengthen and stimulate your emotions because your mind responds strongly to visual stimulation, and your emotions are the vibrational energy that activates the Law of Attraction. One picture is worth a thousand words said once, Albert Einstein.
Your vision board should focus on how you feel having things that you dream about, not just on things that you want. Don’t get me wrong, you can include the material stuff too. However, you have to focus on emotions how you feel when you have your dream home, car, or anything else you dream about. The more your board focuses on how you want to feel, the more it will come to life.
Use only images and words that best represent your purpose, your ideal future, and that inspire positive emotions in you. Too many images or too much information will be distracting and hard to focus on. There is beauty in simplicity and clarity. Keep it neat and be selective about what you place on your board. That is why we have created our tool in such a way, that will help you design a clean, minimalistic and beautiful dream board so you can start the vision of your new life with a calm and tidy feeling.
The inspiration collages are the image of your future – tangible examples and representation of where are you going. They should represent your dreams, your goals, and your ideal life therefore do not be afraid to DREAM BIG.
Finally, another key purpose that vision boards serve is to help you stay focused. It isn’t difficult to start each day with a positive attitude – until you get out of bed.
How quickly that “new me” attitude can last we all know when we take a closer look at the new year resolutions. They usually vanish very fast when we face the challenges of everyday life. How can you possibly remain focused on any goal while people and circumstances constantly pull you in dozens of directions at once? By using a vision board, of course, and few other things that you can discover during the course.
No matter what happens during your day, week or month, your vision board is a constant reminder of where you intend to be. Appealing to you on both conscious and subconscious levels, a vision board can work wonders toward keeping your mind focused on your goal, your intentions, and your life headed in the direction you choose.
Key Benefits of the Vision Board
What’s the point of making a vision board? Simply put, we humans tend to be a very busy species and constantly bombarded by distractions. Creating and using vision boards serves several purposes, some of which include helping you to:
* Identify your vision and give it clarity.
* Reinforce your motivation by daily affirmations and new good habits to work hard towards your success.
* Keep your focus and attention on your intentions and your ultimate goal.
Vision Boards Help Provide Clarity
For example, to say “I want a better life” is a fine goal, but have you given serious thought to exactly what that means? Try to envision what your “better life” looks like. For those of us who find that somewhat difficult, making a vision board can be a tremendous help to see THE BIG PICTURE.
To create my vision board, I must actively seek images that represent specific details of this wonderful new life feeling. That means narrowing it down to specifics. For some, a better life might mean having a new car or home. Others may be seeking a new relationship, friends, or a new job.
I’m sure you have heard it said that most of us never get what we want because … we don’t know what we want. Making a vision board is a wonderful way to bring clarity to that general desire and turn it into an achievable goal.
Use Vision Board for your Motivation, daily Affirmations, Visualizations and strengthening the new good habits.
Once you dream it, the next step is to believe it. In addition to images, vision boards can include words, phrases, or quotations that affirm your intentions. Choose words that inspire you and make you feel good. Somehow, we must silence the inner voice that plagues us all every time. You know that little voice in your head that never shuts up, the one that supports and promotes all your limiting beliefs and every reason why you can’t or shouldn’t or won’t ever be, do or have what you truly want. Affirmations are that little voice’s worst enemy so use them as much as you can to strengthen your new good habits.
They will help you stop the negative self-talk, release you from those limiting beliefs, and allow you to realize your full potential.
Focus for personal and career goals
You can use your vision board to set goals and dreams in many areas of your life, or in just one specific that you are focusing on. In such a case sometimes you may want to use more than one vision board.
You might use one for your personal goals and another for career and financial targets.
You might even want to keep your career vision board at your office or desk as an inspiration and you might even inspire your employees to make one too. Employee motivation is crucial for every company’s performance so you might consider that.
Whatever you decide to do, making a vision board and using it regularly is the best way to keep focus on intentions and your ultimate goal until the moment when you realize that you’ve just made your dreams come true.
Final thoughts on using your completed vision board.
* Place it somewhere you can see it every day and change locations if you stop noticing it or have more than one copy in different places.
* Look at your dream board as often as possible and feel the inspiration it provides.
* Read your daily affirmations and inspirational quotes aloud.
* Feel yourself in the future you have designed like it already happened.
* Believe it that all of this is already yours.
* Be grateful for the good that is already present in your life.
* Acknowledge any goals and changes you have already achieved or felt.
* Add visualization practice to your daily routine. Soon you’ll notice that it moves you closer to your ideal life.
The best and most beautiful vision boards won’t work well if you self-sabotage yourself. If you are experiencing behaviors like: procrastination, self-medication, issues with comfort eating, or any other mental issues, consider joining one of the training programs to find balance. If you have any of these problems, changing your habits might be very difficult, same maintaining focus on your “new life” that you desire so much. We have been very selective during our research for the coaches to join our worldwide training program for individuals and companies. We have spent several months participating in such courses to make sure you are in good hands, during which we’ve seen many personal transformations and life changing experiences. That is why we can recommend to you every single coach or mentor that works with TheBigDream™ University and we guarantee that each of them is a master in his art. Once you reach the state of Mindfulness your results of using the vision board will be spectacular.
Vision board is a truly fantastic and powerful tool and it can make miracles if you work more on your self-development.
