Hello BD lovers. How are you all today? Happy New Year Once again. I do have plans to ensure you get the best out of goal setting, therefore, I am taking a day at a time to talk about this concept based on my experiences. Do you own a vision board?

First, a Vision is a picture of your preferred future. What is your preferred future? Have you ever written it down?

Why do you Need a Vision?

You need a vision because it will give you directions and choices in life. Once you have a vision, it will guide you on what principles and values are dear to you. You will have a deep understanding of what you stand for.

In the words of my favourite spoken word artiste, Suli Breaks;

You cannot feature in a future that you cannot picture.

Wait a Minute!

If you cannot picture it ahead of time, how do you know you’re there or not? How do you tell if there is an addition or subtraction in the final picture?

We all need to wake up and do something. If you already have a vision penned down, bravo! But take a good look at it again, does it need any adjustment based on new experiences?

How do you get inspired?

  1. A conviction from God
  2. An inner yearning
  3. What makes you cry
  4. What gives you joy
  5. What you are very passionate about
  6. What you do with ease and others don’t

These are some of the major inspirations for what you come to call your vision.

And it brings us to the vision board. For me, a vision board, is a kind of end in your story, using a physical representation (words and images) of your passion and dreams (vision above) for a real manifestation.

The vision board is placed / kept in a place where you can always see it. Therefore, it works on your subconscious which is more powerful than the conscious. This is the reason why we need to create a vision, graphically represented on a vision board before writing out specific goals to accomplish it. With this, your goals will always find an inner strength and drive to carry on.

Have you heard of Ryan Murphy?

He wrote this when he was 8 years old in 2003. He became a three-time Olympic gold medalist and world-record holder in the men’s 100-meter backstroke in 2016

Don’t get it all wrong!

Although some people are powerful ‘manifestors’ who do not have to put something on a board to achieve it. But you’ve got to walk the talk efficiently for a period of time, before that happens. Besides, we all are created differently. Do what works for you.

But remember always, that;

The faintest pen is sharper than the sharpest memory.

Winston C..
