So, back to vision boards…yeah, I told you they were the greatest. I since I posted the last blog a week ago, I have continued to see my visions for my life come to fruition. I can’t explain how awesome this feels. I’m eternally grateful to God for all He’s done over the past 16 days to make 2010 the greatest, most productive year of my life. There are no words…(but I guess I should find some if I’m going to keep blogging 🙂).
I want your vision boards to be as successful for you as mine has been for me, so here are a few pointers:
- Attach Scripture to Your Vision—Psalms 138:2 says it all: “For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.” God’s word is everything to Him. It’s binding, it’s true, and it must come to pass. So if you want your vision board to come to fruition, attach scripture (God’s word) to each vision. In fact the whole idea of a vision board is connected to scripture. Habakkuk 2:2-3 reads: “Then the LORD answered me and said: ‘Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.'” God’s vision, when written, gives you the inspiration to stay focused and keep working until the vision comes to pass. Remember, He cannot fail, and He will not fail you.
- Speak, Pray, and Focus On Your Vision— Proverbs 18:21 states that “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Uses your vision board as a reminder to make positive affirmations (say good things) over your vision. Be prayerful and seek God’s guidance in bringing your vision to pass. And focus your time and attention on completing tasks that will transform your vision into reality.
- Study the Law of Attraction (LOA)–To sum up the Law of Attraction, you bring to you the things that you concentrate or focus on. You think about being in debt, and you will continue to be in debt. You focus on remaining single, and you will continue to be single. If you are consumed by your failures, you will continue to fail and be miserable. However if you concentrate on success, success will come to you. Here’s the thing about the law of attraction, you’re going to have to stop concentrating on some things. You see the law of attraction works all the time, not just on those things you want it to work on. Learning this was hard for me. There are some music, movies, and books that I can no longer be bothered with because I don’t want that crap in my life. If you want a better understanding of the Law of Attraction, check out The Secret. From what I’ve studied, the Law of Attraction lines up with my spiritual beliefs and what is written in scripture. Fact about me: if it’s not scriptural, I don’t need it.
- Don’t Do It Alone—Call up your friends, order some food, and make a party out of creating your vision board. Doing so gives you the opportunity to socialize with like-minded individuals, share your vision for the future, and provides you with accountability partners—individuals who will hold you accountable for doing your part to make sure your vision comes to pass. If you don’t have anyone to hold you accountable, you are more likely to slack on your responsibility in make your vision reality. Accountability is good. Never fear it.
I hope these pointers help your visions come to fruition like mine have. I’m sure 2010 is going to be the greatest year of my life. Let’s make it the greatest year of your life as well.
