Vision boards are a fantastic way to help both your conscious mind and subconscious mind to work on attaining your goals. The board enables you to concentrate daily on your goals and visualise your dream life easily. Visualisation is a powerful tool in accessing your inner power. For example, Natan Sharansky, a computer specialist, spent nine years in prison in the USSR when he was accused of being a spy for the US. While he was in solitary confinement, he decided it would not be a waste of his time and began practicing playing chess against himself. He said, “I might as well use the opportunity to become the world champion!”. In 1996 he beat the world champion chess player Garry Kasparov!
Now days many athletes use visualisation. Tiger Woods has used it for years. World Champion Golfer, Jack Nicklaus has said: “Before every shot, I go to the movies”. Bruce Lee Martial Arts has stated “I have a system of ridding my mind of negative thoughts. “I visualize myself writing them down on a piece of paper. Then I imagine myself crumpling up the paper, lighting it on fire, and burning it to a crisp’.
Easy steps to create a vision board.
1. Make a list of the goals you’d like to achieve
2. Collect pictures that represent your goals and the life you desire.
3. Create a collage from all the images and put them on a wall or board.
4. Keep it simple. You want your mind to be seeing your visions for a great life clearly.
5. Put it in a place you will see often. Look at it as often as you can but at least twice a day for a few minutes once you get up and before you go to bed.
