Did you know that research demonstrates that 95% of our behaviors are subconscious? Did you also know that pictures are the language of the subconscious mind?
A Vision Board also known as a Goal or Dream Board is a creative and effective goal-setting tool because Vision Boards are filled with inspiring pictures (words and quotes, too) that represent what you want personally and professionally. Any time you get the opportunity to easily program or reprogram your subconscious, do it. Programming your subconscious mind is vital to a happy, successful and prosperous life.
The second reason is focus. Whatever you focus on, especially when there is emotion involved, is like holding up a red flag for your subconscious mind and saying, ‘THIS IS IMPORTANT, PAY ATTENTION.’ When you see a picture that you love, your body generates a chemical cascade of feel good hormones, which make you feel good.
For example, imagine you have always wanted to go to the Caribbean, so you put a picture of it on your vision board. You look at the picture and you get this great feeling. When the positive feeling is combined with the image of where you want go, your mind automatically starts to generate more thoughts on the subject. It’s also a lot like a Google search. You search on Google for a pair of slippers and the next thing you know your computer keeps showing you advertisements regarding slippers.
The third reason is because the pictures on your vision board can override limiting beliefs stored in your subconscious mind. If you have a desire to travel but don’t think you can make it happen financially or because of time constraints, those are limiting beliefs. You have heard the statement, ‘when there is a will, there’s a way.’ Beliefs can make us succeed or block us from getting what we want. With a vision board, your subconscious financial or time constraints can almost disappear or end up becoming a non-issue and synchronistically you get invited to a conference or a time share or….
Besides a couple of hours, here’s what you need to create a vision board:
- Magazines; collect a handful or two from friends, family, doctor’s office, reuse or thrift shop.
- A poster board or science board
- Glue stick (because it’s very forgiving, meaning you can change where you put a picture.)
Step 1: Write down your goals, short term and long term.
Step 2: Set aside a few hours to cut inspiring and colorful pictures, words and quotes that represent what you want personally and professionally.
Step 3: Create your masterpiece by gluing on what appeals to you.
Step 4: Put it someplace where you see it every day so that your goals are top of mind.
Remember to always program your subconscious mind for what you want instead of what you don’t want.
