Why You Should Make A Vision Board
There are people out there that don’t really understand why they should be making vision boards. It can seem like a fool’s task, something to give the illusion of progress. If you create one of these boards for the right reasons, though, it can be a great tool. Here are those reasons:
To Put Your Ideas On Paper/In View
The mundane day to day tasks of the average person’s life can drown out dreams and hopes for the future. When you are making vision boards and putting them in visible places, you are guaranteeing that your future doesn’t get buried. If placed correctly, you will have a daily reminder of what you want and why you want it. This small thing can be the psychological push that keeps you going through the worst of days.
To Keep You Motivated When Things Go Poorly
Having a consistent vision does not guarantee progress, though. There will be days where nothing gets done, and you assure yourself that you are doomed to failure. It’s in these dark times that vision boards come most in handy. It reminds you of your optimism and your dreams for yourself. You need that when you are at your lowest. You need that reason to keep going.
To Force You To Be Realistic
The imagination runs wild when it comes to the future. It has been proven time and time again that people think the best of their own futures. They believe that things will work out. They also tend to think TOO well of their future. A vision board will keep things realistic. You’ll be able to take stock of where you are and what you need to make your vision board a reality.
Even if you aren’t sure about making a vision board for yourself, give it a try. The exercise can’t hurt, and you will more likely than not find the board being a source of strength for you as you build your life.
