Vision Board


20120101-223702.jpg

Quite a few people have asked me about an explanation to my vision board. I posted a few pictures of it on Instagram. It’s only partially done because this is my BUSINESS vision board. Later this month, I plan on doing a personal vision board that will include my family, friends, health and beauty.

What exactly is visualization? Well, it’s basically imagining things as a means to exercise your mind into believing that what you imagine will come to fruition. A vision board helps with VISUALIZATION.

I’ve been using visualization as a tool since I’ve been an athlete. It became a routine for me before and after games/matches/meets. Sometimes, depending on the sport, I’d use visualization in the middle of a competition. It wasn’t until I got to college that I met other athletes who used the same kind of “ritual” for their own sport. It was then that I realized that I wasn’t so different from other athletes as I had thought. Yes, I was unique in my own right on many levels, but was the same in terms of techniques, routines and fundamentalism in regards to visualization as a tool to reach and achieve goals. Think about it. The greatest athletes visualize themselves in practice going through game scenarios. They create plays and scenarios in their minds and think of many options to overcome obstacles that could potentially occur. For basketball, every player has visualized the “buzzer beater” shot or the “clutch” shot. Every player has visualized how they make free throws. Every football player has imagined the “hail mary” play to go in their favor. Every gymnast has imagined choreographing the perfect routine with an dismount that will score a 10.0. Every diver has envisioned a splashless dive.

In my adulthood, I watched The Secret and learned that what I had already been doing for years, was how the greatest minds, inventors and philosophers used visualization to achieve what we now all see as history.

Now that I’ve hung up my athletic gear, I’m learning to use visualization in every aspect of my life. Over the years I’ve also learned that the energy one puts out is the energy you get in return. So now, I try to be careful with what I say, how I say it and to whom I’m saying it because I want to make sure that same energy comes back to me as I released it.

When I first watched The Secret, I created my first vision board. The pictures in this blog are my second vision board (I completed/achieved 80% of what was on my first. I felt like it was due time for a new one because I have met some amazing people since my first board. The pictures and quotes in my vision boards represent where, what and who will come into my life. My current vision board hangs above my desk in my home office. I see it every day and always take a few minutes to envision these things in my life as well as FEEL what it will feel like to have these things. It may take weeks, months or years to attain some things but PATIENCE is definitely important when it come to my dreams. I know He will reward me when I am ready. For now, it’s about staying on my grind and welcoming not just the blessings that come from life, but also the “lessons”.

I recommend that everyone make a vision board. Be it for business, career, family, health or even for room decor, seeing the things you dream to have is one way for one to think positive. Channeling your energy into a more positive outlet is always better than channeling it into a negative light. Try it. It won’t hurt.

What will you put on your vision board?

Until next post,

    I’ve heard of this Secret concept before, but never actually seen it applied. It’s an interesting concept. Will you ever post a picture of your previous board?

    Great post!
