Words of Inspiration
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Last year (2016) I was invited to A Vision Board Party by a friend, because I had a previous engagement I was unable to attend. Not sure of what a vision board party was and its purpose I called my friend to get more information. After she explained the goal, how successful her event was and that she and her organization would not host another until the following year, I decided to host my own.
What is a Vision Board you ask? According to makeavisionboard.com, a vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal. 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.
A wall in my bedroom is now covered with three Vision Boards that I created. What is the point you ask? For me, it was being able to sit down and take time to really figure out what goals I wanted to achieve for myself, what areas I needed to focus on in building my brand, what areas I was (currently am) slacking in that need(ed) attention and to create a plan to refocus and get back on track. It also serves as a daily reminder of things that I want to accomplish. Now, I’ll be honest, I don’t review it every day, but I do revisit what I noted on my board to see what progress I have made and what my successes have been. This tool is a great form of motivation.
I have read the following on HuffPost.com:
According to the popular book The Secret, “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.”
I won’t say that The Secret or the HuffPost aren’t correct, but I also believe in a Higher Power, our Heavenly Father and that prayer and faith play a role in things we wish to accomplish. I also included on my first Vision Board, Ephesians 3:20-21.
Tips for creating your Vision Board:
- Be specific
- Don’t create so many boards that you lose sight of what’s important
- Be sure to place your board where you can see it (You can’t see it in the back of the closet)
- Review your Vision Board (Daily, Weekly) to be aware of your progress and success
- Don’t get frustrated if things don’t happen immediately
