I had a chance to go to New Orleans this week. We took a tour of Mardi Gras World. The tour guide covered why and how they came up with the Mardi Gras Parade. They don’t show them on t.v. so they can express themselves freely.
The creator had a vision for making floats and now their are multiple parades put on by different crews running for weeks.
You have to have your own vision and act on it.
Simple items can compliment your vision board. Sometimes it’s even easier for your mind to accept one thing at a time.
Here’s a picture of a sign that I received as a gift. I read it every morning. It helps to remind me that my job isn’t about telling people what to do but to guide and inspire them.
My wife and I share a vision board that we keep in our office. We always have to look at it because it’s right in front of the computer screen. There are a mixture of items on it ranging from a card I purchased for my wife, a business card, picture of our future car, map of places we want to travel, quotes, and a document of a house we want to own.
We add to the vision board every month keeping it updated. We also remove items once they seem to appear in our lives.
A vision board is meant to help convince or get your mind to accept something to be possible. Like in autosuggestion the more you tell your mind something it will accept it to be true.
You are doing the same with the vision board. If you show your mind something everyday it will believe that it is possible to have it. It is dependent upon the person on how long it will take the mind to decide it’s okay to believe in it.
You don’t have to have a full blown vision board. It could be one picture hanging on your refrigerator. It could be something in your cubicle at work that’s a constant reminder. It can be in the form of a picture or a written paragraph. Maybe you have a magazine that has the item in that you want – leave it out where you can see it each day. It doesn’t matter what is being used to display the item; it just has to be believable to you.
