VISION BOARDS DON’T WORK? YOU NEED TO WORK THEM
The Blog picture has a part of my vision board that I had created two years ago.
What’s the big deal about it? You may ask
Every one of them has come to be a reality…. You are either surprised or you think there is nothing to it.
Are you one of them who have been skeptical about Vision boards?
Or are you one of those who has used a vision board but not seen much success?
The truth of the matter is that Vision boards by themselves don’t work. You have to make them work AND for you to make them work you need to have them first right?
Let me begin with my story. Two years ago I was in working in a big MNC making decent income and it seemed like this would be the line of work for me for the next many years. Through various incidents I have made a big change in my life. You can read about this in detail in my book THE ONE TECHNIQUE.
One of the tools that I have used from being a somewhat introvert project manager to a Life coach, Author and Speaker is by using the power of work and the use of a VISION BOARD
You may find some instances where the vision board has not worked, however you will find many more examples where it has worked.
Before we proceed. This is what I do now- LIFE COACH, SPEAKER, AUHTOR.
So here are 5 tips of how I worked my VISION BOARD
The very first step is to create a vision board, there are many tools, tips, software’s for you to create a powerful vision board. Take time to sit down and pay close attention to what you want to create – Visualize every detail of it as though you have already achieved it. A tip within a tip- Visualize them clearly however don’t get attached to them. Avoid the pitfall of putting them into a box so tight that you don’t allow life /universe/God to work its magic
Position your vision boards where you can see them everyday, preferably twice a day- again once early in the morning after you do your meditation and once before you go to bed. Did you just ask me why? Because your super-conscious mind a.k.a the human equivalent to the super computer does not differentiate between the past and the future- For this super-Being everything is NOW. So when you give it inputs of visual images of your vision board, you are making it believe that this is happening now and it will. Only that as the battle of the senses goes time comes into play for the conscious mind and you will see the action play out in the so called future
There is one thing I have realized about goals. If you make the goals too big and vague you will be overwhelmed and you will not see the micro evolution of your vision. Make the big goals then make them so small, so tiny, bite sized that you can actually take small actions and see them evolve. Tiniest would be “NOW SIZED GOALS” what one thing can you do NOW?
All work and no play makes Jack a dull Boy! RIGHT? If you only dabble with the creation of your vision board, position it, develop your goals and take don’t play the game then what happens? No-THING will happen.’ Its like you have decided to plant a seed and see it grow and give you fruit. You have gone out and researched which plant to have so that you get the fruit that you love, you have also gone ahead and bought your gardening tools, prepared the Earth positioned the water flow such that there is ample Supply. After a few weeks you come back and find nothing happening – HEY! What happened to planting the seed? You forgot to take that key action .. As dumb as it sounds, if you prepare everything and don’t take action towards your vision you will not see it. The KEY is action – it’s the seed without which all other things fall flat
CELEBRATE WITH GRATITUDE
Like I did. Go out there every time to achieve something which you feel is significant go out there and give gratitude. Here is a post on gratitude
Go … Go… Go… Life wants you to have what you can think of and believe in. Take your first step … ask “What is the first step?”
