It’s the New Year, and I’m excited to say…….

Welcome to 2020!

Like most of you, I’ve been quite busy over the last quarter, not only wrapping the last decade, but also preparing for this upcoming decade.

Usually I just focus on preparing for the upcoming year.

However, this time I decided to cast my vision all the way forward to where I want to be at the end of the next 10 years, and then start working my way towards starting in 2020.

Since casting vision over the decade was a bit of a different approach for me, I found myself feeling stuck at times, wondering just what exactly should I be focusing on.

To help me through this process, I used a tool I’m sure you’re familiar with, called a vision board.

Now the bible instructs us in Habakkuk 2:2 to ..."Write the vision and make it plain...." Taking this step first and actually writing your your vision prior to starting the vision board, will not only give you direct, but it helps keep you laser focused on the task.

is of the upmost importance.

I'm thinking, perhaps I shouldn’t assume, just in case you’re not as familiar with the use of vision boards, I guess I can define a vision board as…

A vision board is a tool used for creatively keeping the “big picture” of your dreams and goals in your view, and thus on the forefront your mind.

The vision board can be as simple as a few images clipped from a magazine and pinned to a cork-board, or as complex as a framed poster with hand-lettered quotes and personal inspiration.

Really, the choice is yours, just keep in mind that it’s totally personal, super fun, and best of all, it works, here’s how…

Ideally, when you are able to visualize the things you want to achieve, you are passively priming your mind to achieve them.

Which in turn prompts you to take the necessary action in order to achieve them.

The concept might seem strange at first, visualization is actually considered one of the top exercises utilized to prompt an individual into action, and eventually achieve their goals

Also……Did you know that you can use a vision board in a variety of ways, depending on your needs?

In fact, it may just be a good idea to have more than one vision board, to keep your dreams for the various areas of your life and business clear (which is something I totally wish I’d done this time around.

Instead, I kinda created 1 giant vision board, that consisted of my goals in the following areas of: Business Planning, Life Goals & Client Attracting.

Let’s take a look at a few of them…..

1) Business Planning: This vision board is where you’ll keep track of why and how you do what you do. You started your business for a reason—your “why.” But somewhere along the way, many of us lose sight of this goal.

A business planning vision board can help keep you on track.

On it, you’ll keep images that represent your ideal business, such as working from the beach, speaking in front of a large crowd, achieving bestseller status with your latest book, or even a big fancy office if that’s your thing.

2) Life Goals: Where do you want to be in one, five or ten, or to years? Believe it or not there are many people who don’t take the time to ask . That’s not just a question from a bad job interview, it’s a critical consideration for anyone who wants to live a life of purpose and meaning, and a vision board is the perfect tool for staying on track.

This vision board—like all of them—is in a constant state of change. As your life goals change and grow, so will your vision board. Maybe you no longer have a vision to live by the beach.

That’s ok. Simply replace the city of lights with a relaxing mountaintop retreat if that’s your thing.

But do keep your life goals vision board updated and refer to it each time you have to make a major decision. It will help clarify the direction you need to take to achieve your life’s dreams.

3) Client Attracting: Every business has an ideal client, but this seemingly simple thing can be incredibly difficult to define. A vision board will help.

For Example, Is your client male or female? Young or old? Successful or not? Does he or she have kids or a home or a business? Is she confident or timid? Athletic or overweight?

I would suggest creating a collection of images that represent your ideal client and refer to it each time you are tempted (as we all are) to sign a client who is less than ideal.

I’ll stop here with 3, however the list of different boards you can create is absolutely is endless.

In closing, I'd like to leave you with the suggestion to simply keep in mind that there is no blueprint to creating a vision board. It really is all about you, God’s purpose the direction for your life and the goals what you want to accomplish.
