What is a Vision Board and Why Create It

Do you know what a vision board is and what it can do for you? A vision board is a visual display of your vision and the future you want to create. It is made up of images and words that inspire you to achieve certain goals in your life. There are many different styles of what a vision board looks like, but I find it quite helpful to structure a vision board in a way that your mind can easily remember, visualize and organize.

The power of a vision board is that it serves as a continual reminder of what you really want and why you want to achieve it. Too many times we have a vision and it gets lost with the noise and demands we have in our daily life. When we stay connected to what we want, it becomes the magnet that pulls us through the journey to get it.

Below are three ways a vision board helps you keep your eye on that target you want:

It creates an image and feeling in your mind

There is a lot more power to a vision board than meets the eye. When you have a vision board that represents the vision you want to achieve, your mind begins to imprint those images. Our brain responds to visual stimulation and stores what it sees in our subconscious mind.

The more you spend visualizing those images, the more your mind views them as your reality. Studies have shown that our mind does not distinguish between imagery and reality. What makes that imagery real to the mind is how much we believe we can achieve that vision.

Make it a part of your routine in the morning and in the evening to look at your vision board and embed it into your mind. By looking at your vision board when you begin your day, will help you create the right energy to start your day the right way. Similarly if you visualize what you want and use your vision board to do so before going to bed, your mind will replay those images repeatedly in your subconscious mind throughout the night

It keeps you inspired and motivated.

A vision board is also an easy, fast and effective way to inspire you and boost motivation. Once a vision board is constructed, a quick glance can regenerate positive feelings and motivation instantly.

Take your time creating your vision board. The right vision board for you is one that generates positive feelings in you and inspires you to act.

It keeps you focused on the right energy and actions

A vision board is also a convenient reminder of what you’re trying to achieve next in your life. Many people lose track of their goals before any significant progress is made. Vision boards serve as a constant reminder of your most important objectives and priorities.

Creating your vision board is easy to put together once you know what you want to create in your life. You can include particular milestones you want to achieve on your vision board by a certain timeframe with specific goals to help you stay focused.

The most important thing is to create a vision board that works for you. Its purpose is to continually connect you to what you want to achieve in a visual way so your mind imprints it and keeps you moving toward it!
