The Power Of A Vision Board

IMG_0937Vision boards have always been a very inspirational thing to me. I keep two large vision boards that I created in 2008 up on the wall in my home office. In fact, I use a segment of one of the boards in much of my materials for The Amazing Life Project.

Vision boards are extremely powerful. I find that a vision board keeps you focused on your goals and reinforces the dream you have for where you want to go in life. Over the past five years, a significant portion of my two vision boards have already come true.

I’ve transformed my body and have put on quite a bit of muscle while reducing my bodyfat and now am often assumed to be nearly 10 years younger. No, I haven’t quite achieved the six pack of abs, but I do have a decent four pack. I’ve given up alcohol entirely and focus on maintaining a healthy diet aside but I do indulge on occasion with pizza and ice cream. I’ve moved south for the winter and now spend most of my time in California, yet I still have a home in Seattle where I go for rejuvenation and re-grounding. The list goes on and on.

People often create vision boards filled with material objects of what they want to have. They are typically packed with giant homes, luxury cars, and exotic destinations. But I approached my last two vision boards differently by focusing on who I wanted to be and what I wanted to do. Yes, I did have a couple of material things but the primary emphasis was on how I wanted to show up in life. “Never Give Up,” “Choose Wisely,” and “The Road Less Traveled” are just some of the phrases that dot my boards.

If you don’t already have a vision board up on your wall as a reminder for where you want to go in life, I encourage you to create one.
