The end of the year is usually characterized by the need to set goals and this leads many people to set new year resolutions. These resolutions don’t come true for most people and this has been attributed to the fact that people forget things easily. That’s where vision boards come in.
Vision boards serve as a snapshot reminder of one’s dreams. If you are an entrepreneur with big dreams, you can use vision boards as ways in which you transfer your dream from your “head” to a paper/board and then placing that paper/board in a spot where you can see it daily.
The Benefit of Having a Vision Board
A vision board goes beyond writing down your dreams or sticking magazine clippings to a board. A vision board is the beginning of making your big goals become realities.
It serves as a reminder
In comparison to just writing your goals in a journal/book whereby the chances of forgetting are very high, a vision board serves as a constant reminder. If you plan on creating a vision board for 2020, you should place your vision board where you can see it daily. Doing this will help to imprint it on the table of your heart to the point that it becomes second nature.[Great Read: How to Find Your Competitive Advantage in Business]
It serves as a magnet
This is quite unexplainable, but the truth is creating a vision board serves as a magnet. If all you do is create a vision board without working so hard to make those things, you’ll still find out at the end of the year that you’ve achieved some of the things you wrote in your vision board. Creating a visual demo of your goals and dreams serves as a magnet in making those things happen. If you are not too certain about this claim, try to create a vision board for 2020, hide it and then bring the board out at the end of the year. The result will shock you.
It gives you a sense of accomplishment
As the year goes by and you begin to cross off your achieved goals on the board, you’ll begin to feel a sense of purpose and accomplishment. If you want to boost your morale, give the vision board a try.
