Why you should have a life vision board
Would you start a business without a business model? Hopefully not. So, how do you think you will live your life without one? Creating a vision board is the first step to reach the life you truly want. Most people will have some rough ideas about what they like in life and where they want to go. Fewer people have made a conscious effort to clarify how their ideal life looks in every area (e.g., health, finance, relationships, career). This is probably why the life coaching industry now is estimated to be around 2 billion $, and multiple courses help design your ideal life.
One of the tools that people found most interesting in my TEDx presentation was the vision board. I received many requests for teaching on how to do it. The vision board helps clarify what you want in each area of your life and acts as a constant reminder that directs your actions. You will find out that it is unlikely to find a successful company without a vision and mission statement. Why should it be different for our lives? Our lives have become increasingly complex, and it is important to have a clear direction.
I printed my vision board and put it all over the places I spend most of my time – my room, dining room, and office. I also put it on the back of my mobile. I look at it even without noticing. However, a few times, I make the conscious choice to spend a few seconds on it, especially when I feel down. The vision board helps you to be pulled by the vision of your future self instead of being hostage of your past.
