A few months ago, I tuned into the BET Centric show called Being. They did a story on the actress Lisa Raye. I found her story to be quite interesting. What stood out to me the most was towards the end of the episode where she talked about the power of vision boards. She said that vision boards can help one to keep a specific focus in a particular area of their life; which keeps you on track with your vision, passion, career, life goals, finances, etc. Now don't get me wrong, I know and recognize that God controls all things that happen within our lives. However, I have found that working on these vision boards has helped me to focus on my career goals and life passions. I have been going through a period in my life where I felt so lost as it pertained to my career. I figured that I had nothing to lose in creating a vision board. I'll be honest and say that I do not look at my vision board faithfully every day. But, I do purposely look at it a few times per week and it reminds me of my career and life goals. A part of me even feels that these vision boards helped further inspire/motivate me to create this website!
My vision boards promote positive thoughts and emotions when I look at them. It reminds me to make time for the areas in life that I am passionate about and to follow my career dreams. I ultimately see myself establishing a career where I can merge my life passions and purpose. I am still waiting on the Lord for guidance in this area of my life and am learning to embrace the journey.
Sometimes we all need visual reminders of the things that are most important to us to help keep us on track with achieving our life goals and God given purpose.
Have you ever created a vision board?
