Everyone needs to have goals. When it comes down to your goals, not only is it important to write them down, but you need to be able to visualize them as well. A vision board can assist you in keeping your goals in front of you.

Once you set your goals for the year, you need to cut out images or download images from the internet and put them on a board. You can collect pictures out of a magazine or even take your own pictures. Perhaps you have a dream home as a goal. Take a picture of that dream home and include it on your Vision Board.

Your Vision Board does not have to be anything fancy. A simple poster board that you buy at your local store will do the job just fine. Whatever you decide to use, you need it to be something that you can capture your images on. You will be continually referring to it to remind yourself of what it is that you are working towards.

You need to plant your goals in your subconscious so that these goals manifest themselves and become reality in your mind. You are going to keep on planning on how to reach your goals and your subconscious cannot tell the difference between what is
real and what is not real. What is in your subconscious will then allow your thoughts, feelings and actions to get results.

The Vision Board is not the only thing that you have to do. There is action required on your part, but the vision board will allow you to implant on your subconscious those things we need so that your subconscious will not be a hindrance to your achieving
those goals. The Vision Board allows you to take action.

Say for instance that you want to own a Ferrari. Go down to the Ferrari dealer, sit in a Ferrari, and have someone take a picture of you in it and put that on your vision board. The more you can personalize a goal and make it almost tangible, the more you are going to make that goal a reality in your subconscious.

Goals are what motivate and inspire us to accomplish what we desire. Our senses play an important role in helping implant things in our subconscious. A Vision Board helps to harness the visual aspect of our goals and encourages us to press forward and achieve those goals.
