Prevent existential frustration

Prevent yourself from what Viktor Frankl (you know his empowering life story and his book Man’s search for meaning) called Existential Vacuum or Existential Frustration - the lack of meaning in life.

The corona shock lingers, and many people ask questions about the meaning of life, particularly their personal life and work. 

We need to get the spirits up and get excited about creating a meaningful future in work/business and all aspects of life.

A vision board is a fun tool that expands our thinking regarding our life and gives us a journey into our potential to get the creativity and imagination going.

What we can imagine, we can get on realizing. The Wright brothers are an excellent example - you may have another favourite ideal of a dreamer who expanded the limitation in people’s minds by proving what nobody could imagine.

I talked about the broaden-and-build theory before and the importance of a positive emotional state with the 3 components of building our dreams into reality (clarity, focus and enthusiasm)

You’re probably familiar with using a vision board as a tool for keeping your dreams and goals in mind. But did you know that you can use a vision board in a variety of ways, depending on your needs? In fact, you might even want to have more than one vision board to keep your dreams for the various areas of your life and business clear. 

Business Planning

This vision board is where you’ll keep track of why and how you do what you do. You started your business for a reason—your “why.” But somewhere along the way, many of us lose sight of this goal. 

A business planning vision board can help keep us on track. 

On it, you’ll keep images that represent your ideal business, such as working from the beach, speaking in front of a large crowd, achieving bestseller status with your latest book, or even a big fancy office if that’s your thing. 

Life Goals

Where do you want to be in five, ten, or twenty years? That’s not just a question from a bad job interview, it’s a critical consideration for anyone who wants to live a life of purpose and meaning, and a vision board is a perfect tool for staying on track. 

This vision board—like all of them—is in a constant state of change. As your life goals change and grow, so will your vision board. Maybe you no longer want to live in Paris. That’s ok. Replace the city of lights with a relaxing mountaintop retreat if that’s your thing. 

But do keep your life goals vision board updated and refer to it each time you have to make a major decision. It will help clarify the direction you need to take to achieve your life’s dreams. 

Vacation Planning

Are you heading off on an epic vacation with the family? Don’t leave your journey to chance. Capture all your “must-see” destinations on a vision board, so you don’t miss anything. 

Even better, invite your kids and spouse to join you and create a fun planning tool the entire family can use. The kids will be excited about your trip, and you’ll be sure everyone gets to see and do everything they hoped for. By planning ahead, you’ll ensure everyone has the epic vacation of their dreams. 

Home Buying

Pinterest has built an entire business around what amounts to a digital vision board—much of it devoted to home décor. If you’re in the market for a new home, or simply remodelling the one you have, then a vision board is a great way to organize your plans. 

Snip photos of the style of home you love, colour combos to try, landscaping ideas, and anything else that strikes your fancy. Keeping your home-buying vision board close at hand will save you time in your search by reminding you exactly what you’re looking for. 

Client Attracting

Every business has an ideal client, but this seemingly simple thing can be incredibly difficult to define. A vision board will help. 

Is your client male or female? Young or old? Successful or not? Does he or she have kids or a home or a business? Is she confident or timid? Athletic or overweight? 

Create a collection of images that represent your ideal client and refer to it each time you are tempted (as we all are) to sign a client who is less than ideal.
