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 any sort of board on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life.
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.
- Keep your attention on your intentions.
(Note that in our ultra digital age, you can also create vision boards to display on your computer screen and mobile devices. See below for a brief explanation of Vision Board Software.)
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.
In order to create my vision board, I must actively seek images that represent specific details of this wonderful new life. That means narrowing it down to specifics.
For some, a better life might mean having a new car or home.
Others may be seeking ways to make a difference in the local community.
Doubtless 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 so that it can become reality.
A Vision Board Keeps you Focused
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 fresh “new me” attitude can sink back into oblivion beneath the tasks and challenges of everyday life. How can you possibly remain focused on any intention while people and circumstances constantly pull you in dozens of directions at once? By using a vision board, of course!
No matter what happens during your day, 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 vision, your attention on your intentions, and your life headed in the direction you choose.
