See It to Believe It - The Power of Vision Boards for Business Goals
In the last few weeks, I’ve talked about how to dream realistically when it comes to setting goals for your business, as well as discussing how your very mindset can sometimes sabotage and get in the way of what you want to accomplish.
But both of these – the mindset and the big dreams – are actually what helps us see what it is we want to do with our lives and our businesses.
Now, give me the benefit of a doubt here because today I actually want to discuss vision boards. Yes, I did indeed say vision boards and once you’ve stopped laughing, I’ll tell you why these are actually more important than you realize.
Vision Boards to Showcase Your Future
So you might have an idea of what a vision board is or you’ve seen it on a show or in a movie. The actual Oxford definition of one is:
“A collage of images and words representing a person’s wishes or goals, intended to serve as inspiration or motivation.”
On the surface, that doesn’t sound as cheesy as it’s sometimes depicted in media and it actually can help you visualize what it is you want to do.
The saying goes that “seeing is believing,” so why wouldn’t you have something that you could see and then believe that you could do?
Not gonna lie, I have vision boards. In fact, I’ve achieved my first one and now have to start another, because what I visualized has come to fruition. As my buddy Pace would say, I “manifested” everything that I saw on my vision board.
The goals that I set for myself and what I wanted for my business were easier to imagine when I look at them, even if it was just an image. And when you are constantly seeing your goals and aspirations, then you start to believe in the steps you’ll need to take.
Basically, the vision that you have will start to become more and more real to you and when you feel that reality, then you’re more likely to pursue it.
What Should Be on a Vision Board?
That’s a little about what should be on a vision board. And really, that question can only be answered by you.
Your vision board should reflect the things that you want to happen in your life; this includes anything you want to happen for your business or in your personal life. The point is to have realistic goals and put the steps toward achieving them.
So, say you want to live in a mansion. It’s easy to say, “I want to live in a mansion,” but how will you get there? What steps do you need to take to own a mansion?
And it’s not enough to just say it or even put an image of a mansion – you want to completely envision what the mansion will look like, not just the front door. What color are the walls? Where’s the kitchen located? How many bedrooms?
That’s the point of the vision board – to see what future you want to have and put that out into the universe that this is what you want and this is how you will get it.
