Vision board parties are popular these days--from girlfriends’ get-togethers to large vision board events. The end of the year and the beginning of a new year is the time we all start reflecting on the year that was and envisioning the year to come. Vision boards allow us to create a visual image of what we desire to have in the new year as well as help to clarify vision and remain focused.
Often vision boards are created for continual inspiration.It’s the visual of what you want to see occur in your life. Vision boards show your what, what you want to acquire and your desired outcome in full view.
I’m not opposed to vision boards as I’ve actually created many over the years. What I find disheartening is that we take the time to get supplies, collect magazines and look for the perfect picture that will provide that visual of what we want. We paste the pictures just right, everything having a desired location on our poster board. But, what happens after you’ve created your vision board?
The vision board only provides a visual view of what you want. You must put action to the vision for it to actually become reality.
Let 2020 be the year that you’re intentional about seeing your visions become a reality. Thoughts, visions and dreams will only become a reality when we transition from thinking to doing--taking those thoughts and creating a plan and working your plan. As with the visions on your board if you create the strategy and not work it, nothing will happen. Create the vision and strategy and work the plan!
Take the time to plan for what you want to see actually happen in your life. When creating your strategy, remember your strategies and tactics/task outline exactly what you’ll do to get there. To do so, make sure your goals are SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-Bound.
Let this be your affirmation:
This year is my year of 20/20 vision and focus. I’m intentional about bringing my visions to reality. I’ve created my strategy and will work it diligently. I will see and posse what I go after.
