3 Ways To Make Your Vision Board More Effective This Year
We are living in a time when vision boards have become an annual activity. More people than ever are going after their goals at full speed, achieving massive success and setting bigger and better goals for the following year. There are also some who are setting goals each year only to come back and move the goal to the next year because it had not been achieved. I have dedicated the last few years studying what separates achievers from non-achievers. In my own life and with my own vision, achieving 90% or more of my goals on an annual basis, I have found the three keys to an effective vision board.
In 2012, I had dinner with my friend Raevyn and we did our first vision boards together for 2013. To my surprise, 2013 was one of my highest earning years. I had the opportunity to serve dozens of entrepreneurs as a coach, I self-published a book and sold more than 3,000 copies and three months and I had my first PAID speaking engagements. By just being intentional and writing my goals down, I quadrupled my success, had an office and was living the life that I had only dreamed about when I did my vision board in October 2013.
There were three things besides writing my vision down that helped me to quickly achieve my goals. Do these things and you will begin to see immediate results.
- Seperate your goals into categories before starting your vision board. The categories that my husband and I use are Mental, Physical, Spiritual, Relational, Financial, and Family. Your goals also should be SMART goals, which means that they are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and there is a time set to reach them. If you are not familiar with setting SMART goals click here for our SMART goal sheet.
- Get in agreement with your spouse or a friend about your goals. The bible says that "one can chase a thousand and two can put ten thousand to flight....," (Deuteronomy 32:30). This means that anything that you come into agreement with another to conquer you will be VICTORIOUS according to God's will.
- Declare the Word of God over your goals. Find a scripture that lines up with what you desire and confess it daily in present tense. Daily confessions means you will be looking at your goals daily. As they are achieved check them off with the date achieved and when you return to pray over your goals thank God for the victory in the areas of achievement.
