I can't remember the last time I created a New year's resolution, can you? are they a thing of the past? I think I got so disheartened each time they never happened I stopped trying. I just accepted life as it was... that was until I found myself on a personal growth journey back in 2017.
Did you know that over half of new year's resolutions fail, why? because people often set unrealistic goals for themselves. They might decide to completely change their lifestyle overnight, without considering the effort and time required to do so. This can lead to feelings of overwhelm and discouragement when progress is slow or non-existent. Which is where I come into play. Vision Boards are much more powerful than any New year’s resolutions, as a Vision Board coach, speaker, podcaster, and best-selling author I have seen first-hand just how powerful Vision Boards can be to achieve your goals.
According to an article in Forbes 45% of people set new year’s resolutions to improve their mental health, vision boards themselves have been proven to help improve your mental health. Vision boards and New Year's resolutions are both popular methods for setting intentions and goals, however the method is different. Vision boards provide a visual representation of one's desires and aspirations.
By having a clear direction of your end goal, you can use the vision board to keep you motivated each day. Having that daily visual representation of your dreams and desires is key to achieving success.
Here are 3 reasons why Vision Boards are more likely to be successful compared to setting New Year resolutions.
1. They allow for a more creative process which will allow you to tap into your intuition.
2. By using images that resonate with our desires we are tapping into our subconscious mind and creating a deeper connection to our dreams and desires.
3. With having a deeper connection, we are more likely to be motivated and focused at achieving the desires we have set.
By having images of your dreams in front of you will help you stay focused on working towards them, vision boards can be a more flexible and adaptable tool than New Year's resolutions. So, is it worth setting New Year's resolutions? Or is it time to think bigger and create a vision board for 2024.
