Write the vision, and make it plain upon tablets, that he may run that readeth it.
Procrastination is best defined as putting off till tomorrow what can be done now. Well, I confess, on this particular topic it has taken me about 3 or 4 months to write it. I have written several other articles for Life,God and Love but this particular one that I held so dear to my heart, I never brought myself to writing.
So I told myself, how bad do I want to reach out to that one person who would read and be inspired to make a decision, take a step to getting better or in my words which you guys are familiar with Think Act Change.
I decided first to revamp my own board, make it more colourful, code it, add some new things to it and after that write this. Well, I’m pleased to tell you that I did all that and more. I even attended a webinar just to learn more so that I could share very loaded stuff with you my lovely readers.
What’s a Vision Board?
In simple terms it’s a picture of your future. So what is your future? There is this alliteration that sweet tongues or motivational speakers like to use . . . A future you cannot picture you cannot feature in it. Well, that exactly is a Vision Board.
So what is your dream car, house,home village, location, dress code, wardrobe, bank balance, wedding gown, church, audience, work, congregation etc? The idea of a dream board or a vision board is to place in-front of you legibly, boldly, clearly in massive bright prints that which you would love to experience in your future. Let me share some benefits of the vision board.
I have my board on the wall wall very close to my bed. It’s the first and last thing I see at morning and night. When I’m tired or discouraged, I look at it and I smile ‘cause I know my visions are ginormous, gargantuan, BIG, interesting and I get spurred to work again. Also, one thing this does is it helps you stay focused. When you keep seeing your goals, you can easily say no to anything which doesn’t align with what you have painstakingly put up. It is sad and I agree that laser sharp focus always gets to it’s mark.
Thirdly, a vision board helps you sell yourself better. If asked in an interview or anywhere what it was exactly you wanted, off the top of your head, without missing a beat you would repeat that which you have cut-up to the board, that which you have constantly seen.
Fourthly, you are what you constantly look unto.
Numbers 21:8 KJV, And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.
Jesus said look unto me – [In not those exact words though]
John 12:32 KJV, And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
So in your concious and sub-concious mind you begin to attract the images that you have placed on your vision board.
Five, you are not worthy of any dream or goal that you are shy to share or talk about it. The vision board helps you broadcast to all that are close to the location of the board – that which you want to make of your life. Certainly if you have been reading till this point you know that it’s assumed you know what you want with your life. The vision board helps you articulate this and puts it in foresight.
The universe will direct to you all that you focus on the most. If your thinking is always of poverty, then you are certain to be poor. Go on-line, get on the internet (guess you’re already on-line), browse, research and look for pictures of the future you want. Cut your face into it. Print these pictures and paste them on the wall or on a cardboard and hang it up around you at home.
Let your environment be a gallery of the future you dream of and not of memories of the past. I dare you to THINK differently and get a vision board quickly. ACT on this crazy, not so popular fail safe idea and begin to live a life you have always dreamed of. This is the best CHANGE you can have.
Please feel free to get in touch with your questions or comments on how the vision board has worked for you.
