What is the Purpose of a Vision Board?

Vision boards aren’t just for dreamers and those who hope. Effective vision boards are for visionaries and those who execute plans of action. Whether you are a person seeking to change your mindset in order to change your life, or you are an influential leader looking to strategically take yourself to your next level personally or professionally, a vision board created with intentionality is an effective tool. Vision boards help you set goals, and then become a daily reminder to achieve those goals. Placing your eyes daily upon your vision inspires, motivates, drives, and also provides continual opportunity to speak life over your dreams and command everything you want to come into alignment with you and your objectives.
