Faith, Vision (Inspirational) Boards
Thus the reason I engage my clients in Faith-Vision, Inspirational and Action Boards instead. (Biblical principles over Law of Attraction). According to Neil Farber M.D, Ph.D., CLC, CPT, “Vision boards are for dreaming, action boards are for achieving.”
Posting your actions and works toward your dreams seems to be more effective according to recent studies in psychology and my experience with client’s outcome.
For the believer, it is important that our “boards” are not limited and finite according to “our” plans and goals but that we allow room for God’s orchestrated events, adventures and plans.
We should also build enough grace and patience within ourselves to endure detours, bumps and delays… with our faith and hope on board. While we need to have vision to thrive and move us toward purpose, let us not become self-centered or self-directed apart from God’s leading.
Finally, the Word’s Warning about Self-Confidence:
“Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” Otherwise you are boasting about your own plans, and all such boasting is evil” (James 4:13-15).
My clients feel more positive toward achieving their dreams by listing and posting realistic action steps and activities on boards along with their dreams and goals. They can easily focus and see themselves achieving short and longterm goals, and feel inspired and motivated after they take each step because they see and feel progressive.
Bottom-line, vision boarding is not a bad method of inspiration when you include or consider God’s vision, plan and purpose. I am careful not to cause more harm to my clients by helping them with learning to cope with disappointments and transitions. Things I had to do in my own life.
You’re not bound to your board.
