It’s a surprising title, isn’t it? I love Vision Boards and write about them all the time. But they can also be useless if people aren’t using them right. Do you want to know why your Vision Board is Crap?
The problem starts when you think that creating a Vision Board is the end goal. It’s not. You can’t create a Vision Board and sit back on your couch and wait for good things to happen!
You actually have to get up and work towards your goal. Yep! I said it. That dirty word, “work.” And the other thing you need to do is recognize opportunities when they present themselves.
In a previous post on why vision boards don’t work, I speak specifically to that. Recognizing the need to work towards your goals and recognizing the opportunities when they come along. Not always easy if you’re just paying attention to your one small goal and not to bigger or different opportunities that come along which will help you reach your goal.
Once you create that Vision Board, you need to hang it up where you can see it on a daily basis. By looking at your goals each day, by repeating out loud what you’re working toward then you put the seed in your brain. The key here is that what you focus on expands. In What You Focus on Expands, I talk about this phenomenon.
And now that you understand the importance of Vision Boards, don’t think you have to wait until January 1st in order to create one. In Is There Ever a Wrong Time to Create a Vision Board, we explore the different times and ways you can create a Vision Board. The short answer is any time and any way.
I hope you feel inspired to create your Vision Board and use it to help you move in the direction of your goals. I’m creating a new one tonight that’s just focused on my blog and my goals for it. What’s your Vision Board about?
