Embrace your authenticity and discover your true self
What kind of person do you want to be? What do you want to achieve? If you don’t know the answer to these questions, a vision board is the best place to start.
A vision board is a collage of images, words and anything that helps you visualize who you want to be and the life you want to live. Having a vision brings clarity to your dreams and helps you stay focused when you get sidetracked or stressed. It reminds you of what really matters in your life.
To get clear about what you want and find your purpose, the first step is to set an intention. What do I want my life to look like? Am I happy with my body, career or relationships?
For every intention, Deepak Chopra suggests asking yourself two questions:
- “How will this intention serve me?”
- “How will it serve everybody I come into contact with?”
Chopra says, “If the answer to both questions can be distilled to true happiness and fulfillment, then you are on the right track.”
1. It brings clarity to your dreams
By having more positive visualizations, we can rewire the brain to formulate more positive thoughts. When you surround yourself with tangible reminders of your dreams, your life will change to match them. It may sound far-fetched, but trust us – it works. All that positive mental energy is powerful!
2. It allows us to tap into a greater level of awareness
When we’re feeling lost or filled with self-doubt, we tend to look for answers outside of ourselves. Yet the truth is within us all along. Creating a vision board requires digging deeper and embracing our authenticity.
3. It provides incentive
A vision board is a great reminder of what your goals are on a daily basis. It’s especially helpful when you encounter obstacles along the way. A visual reminder gives you the motivation to face those challenges and go the extra mile.
