Succeed with a Vision Board

A vision board is a visual representation

It’s a visual representation of things and circumstances we want to attract. I look at vision boards as a playground for my dreams. I have one hanging in my dining room so I can’t miss it. Mine consists of a white dry erase board filled with inspiring quotes, messages of gratitude, as well as the all important goals laid out on colorful paper. I pass by my vision board often, and I make a point to stop and reflect on it at least once a day. If I see my dreams and all that I have to be grateful for so far, then I am more apt to take action.

A vision board acts as a system

I’m all about systems. Although, I’d classify myself as a creative person, I’m tactical in my approach. Without a system, I’d be spinning in circles with an out-of-control mind racing from one thing to another. A vision board helps me to achieve my dreams in a logical, practical fun way.

A vision board is a road map

I would not be able to succeed at running a publishing company, maintaining an active blog, writing lesbian romance novels, holding down a full-time marketing job, and enjoying quiet moments with my family if I didn’t have some sort of road map to help me sort out the steps. When laid out in front of me, the necessary action steps become apparent. I  know that to get from point A to point B on my road map, I need to do XYZ.

vision boardI’m a visual person. I need to see things clearly to understand them, to absorb them, to act on them. Many things are tossed into my path on a daily basis. Without the help of my vision board, these things could easily swallow me up whole and block me from enjoying a fine balance while achieving my dreams.

I’d love to hear from you… Do you use a vision board?

Wishing you the best,

Suzie Carr, novelist

    Hi Suzie,

    Oh yes…I’ve one too, though just as Deone mentioned, it isn’t as good as yours. More so, we call it a pin-board our end where you can literally pin up anything you like. I don’t really put up my days task there, because they’re all lined up in my little head, though everything else does go onto it.

    Loved those dogs – I guess they too wanted to be part of you and all that you do. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day ahead 🙂

      Hi Harleena, I love using visuals to cue me into action. It seems to be the thing that sticks for me. I first learned about using them through Tony Robbins. I’ve been using them for years now. I’m happy to report that I seem to check off most of these items over time. Have a great day! And thanks for chiming in:)
