 5 Reasons why you need to do a vision board

First of all, what is “vision”? Like my friend Calvin D Brown put it, “Vision is the ability to see further than your eyes can look (Read the article if you want to learn more about vision: .Thus the reason why people who are born blind can still have perfect vision. Take a look at Stevie Wonder, Hellen Keller, Ray Charles, Andrea Bocelli and many others who are still able to have vision for their lives despite being blind. What excuse do we have for not having a vision?

#1 A vision board will give you a lasting visual in your mind

It was my junior year in college that I took the most valuable class of my whole academic life. Believe it or not, this class was a recreation and leisure studies class with Professor Katherine Martinez . It was in this class I learned about my purpose, my gifts, talents, my calling, and also how to envision. My teacher required us to create a 5, 10 and 15 year vision board for our lives. I actually still have my original board. A vision board is more than just putting pictures on construction paper; it is a representation of your life and the desired result that you aim toward. We have visions for churches, organizations, schools, and our jobs, yet we don’t create a plan for the most important of all- our lives. God created vision and he showed us a great example of its power with Abraham. In Genesis 17:5, God said to Abraham, “What’s more, I am changing your name. It will no longer be Abram. Instead, you will be called Abraham, for you will be the father of many nations.” God changed the picture that Abraham had in his mind by giving him a new name. Even though Abraham had no children, God wanted to implant the picture in his mind that he would be the Father of many nations. 

#2 A vision board will hold you personally accountable

My wife and I created our vision board for the year (as seen above) and every time I walk into our room, I see that board. I get up for work and I see the board. I get ready to sleep and I see the board. This board holds me accountable for the plans I have set and the goals that I desire to accomplish. My goals of course won’t happen without my action but the accountability of seeing my vision board functions to keep me on track.

#3 A vision board will build your faith

In Hebrews 11:1, the bible says, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”  This means that it’s only truly faith if you currently don’t have it but are believing you will. I like what Pearson’s Law says: That which is monitored improves. That which is monitored and reported improves exponentially.” Your vision board will help to build your faith because every time you see it, you squeeze an ounce of belief into yourself. If you track and monitor your progress, you will bring that vision to reality.

#4 A vision board will help you eliminate distractions

It doesn’t matter where you are in this journey of life, distractions will come to get you off course. We live in a world filled with so many different opportunities, choices, and sometimes these interruptions take us on a path we didn’t intend to be on. A vision board is a snap shot of your life and shows you what’s important and what’s not important.  Without a vision board, I can imagine how easily I would be pulled into directions that do not correlate with my purpose.

#5 A vision board will help decide your friendships

As the vision for my life becomes more focused, I’ve realized that it affects who comes and doesn’t come into my life. After creating my vision board at the beginning of the year, I have met more like-minded people than any other year of my life. Why? Your chosen destination will automatically bring with it ordained friendships to help you accomplish your goal. Remember this, you don’t choose your friends; your vision or lack of vision will. So with that, create your vision board wisely. The bible says in Amos 3:3

“Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?”
