GEARED UP FOR THE YEAR: The Vision Board Story
Welcome to a new week. or should I call it the “Valentine morning after” #Wink.
However, you would like to call it, let's just be sure everything is ok and in place.
Meanwhile, I wanted us to talk a bit about how the year is going already and how you are or plan to achieve your set goals this year. You don't have any? Not to worry, it's not that serious.
So let's talk.
Have you ever heard of a vision board?
If it sounds strange don't worry I only just heard of it two years ago. Yes! Even though I have always used bits and pieces of it I never really knew anything about it until then.
|I had this stuck to my bedside a few days to my 33rd birthday |
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 and words that represent whatever you want to be, do, or have in your life.
Simply put, your goals and aspirations clearly cut out in the form of pictures or just some bold inscriptions of what you want or where you want to be. Remember those pictures of fancy houses, cars, even a vacation destination, or words of affirmation that you stick on your mirror or fridge door? Those are part of what makes up your vision board. Now what makes a vision board different is that you are deliberate in what goes on there and this helps you
- Identify your vision and give it clarity.
- Reinforce your daily affirmations.
- Keep your attention and focus on the goal.
Once you have written down your goals, you will have to get pictures That will represent your goal, with inscriptions written and cut out. Let's say your goal is to get a second degree in the coming year, you could get a picture of someone in a graduation gown, and then stick it in your board with a little inscription. Another example, If maybe you intend to start a new business, you could just cut out the name of your intended company boldly written and then stick it to your board, etc.
Guess what? anything whatsoever can go into a vision board, even if your goal is to just have fun and slay all year round. What could be on your vision board
- Your dream day.
- Your ideal lifestyle.
- What you want from your business or career.
- Start a new business or career
- Your ideal family
- Even couple goals *wink*
- Word of affirmations
- Body goals whether six packs or a tall glass of palm wine ( you need to know what this means to understand the humor, lol!)
- Healthy lifestyle. (I started a healthy lifestyle routine last year and it has been amazing)
- Etc etc.
|Your dreams are valid|
In planning your vision board this year, I would like for you to not just plan for a year alone but the SEASON. I want you to identify the season you are in at the moment and set your plans towards it. For someone it could be a season of starting a new career, a new business, getting married, getting a new degree, or a season of having children, whether brain children (ideas) or biological children.
These seasons should help you in identifying which area to channel your greater strength and which areas you can be less focused on.

What to do after you have your vision board ready, is to work towards achieving your goals. Remember, “no food for a lazy man”
Another very important thing to do is to prayerfully bring your goals before God. I believe so much in the efficacy of prayer and also know that God alone can stair the wheels of a man's life in the right direction. Allow Him to guide you.
Finally, love and live your best life knowing that your goals are as important as how well you are.
I pray you good suaccess in the new year and beyond. Amen.
