Part 4: What’s Missing from Most Vision Boards

In Part 1, I encouraged you to Use a Vision Board to Attract Your Future. 
In Part 2, I shared 5 Reasons to Create a Vision Board.
In Part 3, I gave you some ideas on how to create your own vision board.

This week I’m going to point out two things that may be missing from your vision board.

Missing item #1: Believe that it is possible

Vision boards are amazing tools to help you see (and create) the present and future you want. However, you must believe that these changes are possible. If you don’t believe in what you want, why should the universe believe you deserve them?

Lucky for you, you can change your mindset about any topic. It takes focus; it takes a willingness to try (and fail and then try again); it may take professional help depending upon your emotional or mental blocks.

Believing that your dreams are possible is one of the keys to achieving them, because if you don’t believe in your dreams, you will be missing item #2.

Missing item #2: Actions to make it possible

Vision boards show what you want and evoke the feelings you want to feel. But vision boards are displays. In order to achieve and receive the items/emotions you want, you will have to do some of the work.

Lucky for you, this type of work seems more like fun!

You can take some form of action for every item on your vision board. Look at it, think about what needs to happen for it to become real. What steps do you need to take?

As an example, if you want to travel the world, get a passport. Who cares if you have no immediate plans to travel. Get the passport. This shows the universe you want to travel. You are committed to traveling!

Start learning a foreign language. Start studying maps and learning about the places you’d like to explore.

Action is one of the keys to achieving your goals.


Funny how as I was writing this, the business name I used when I was a life coach came to mind. My business was called IBB Coaching Concepts. IBB stood for Imagine. Believe. Become.

The three parts to a vision board:

  1. Imagine what you want
  2. Believe it is possible to attract these things
  3. Become the person who will receive these things

What does your vision board look like? Do you believe you can attract those items and emotions into your life? Are you willing to do the work/fun activities to get them?

I’d love to see a picture of your vision board! Share it in the Facebook group Start Today and Continue Tomorrow. We will also help you stay focused on the actions you need to take to achieve/attract all of your dreams!
