Create Your Own Vision Board Magic
How would you like to increase your chances of achieving your goals from 0% to at least 75%? I’m throwing a Vision Board party next month to help people do that. I’m quite excited. There’s nothing I love more than helping people put a tangible framework around their goals and dreams.
Have you created a vision board before? Or have you put it away in the cupboard somewhere? Apparently, those people who keep their vision boards where they can see them are highly likely to achieve what they depicted through words and pictures on their boards.
Why Is That?
We’ve all heard about the different levels of retention when we learn something. This excerpt is from Psychotactics.com:
To summarize the numbers (which sometimes get cited differently) learners retain approximately:
90% of what they learn when they teach someone else/use immediately.
75% of what they learn when they practice what they learned.
50% of what they learn when engaged in a group discussion.
30% of what they learn when they see a demonstration.
20% of what they learn from audio-visual.
10% of what they learn when they’ve learned from reading.
5% of what they learn when they’ve learned from lecture.
Wow! Those figures are amazing. In my Vision Board party we will be learning, reading (the words we pick for our board), see what others are doing with their boards, talking to each other about our goals, and creating practical action steps we can take now and into the future. If you then go away and talk about your board with others, that reinforces your goals even more.
What we have done, is cemented a picture into our psyche of where/who/what we want for our lives. If you then keep your board where you can see it, it becomes a subconscious message to yourself and will influence your future choices. Combining that with action steps going forward that you hold yourself accountable to makes your Vision Board a very powerful tool in your life.
But My Life is Pretty Boring and Stock Standard
I know you’re thinking this. You leave home for work, go home to make dinner, hope you have a relaxing enjoyable weekend and that’s your life. Remember that saying ‘if you keep doing the same thing, you will get the same result’. We’re not all meant to live the life of Richard Branson, but we can still have goals and dreams for ourselves, our family, our work, our community. So here are some reasons for creating a Vision Board:
- Build/grow a business
- Personal development goals
- Overseas travel
- New product idea
- Community project you want to start
- Life you want to lead
- Places you want to live
- Friends you want to have
- The person you want to be
So who do you want to be? Where do you want to go? What do you want to achieve?
A Vision Board party is a fun way to put tangible pictures, words and action steps to your future.
