Visualize Your Goals: Five Tips to Achieve Them with Visualizations

Visualization is a powerful tool to help you achieve your goals. When you visualize, you can see solutions that were previously hidden from your view. Visualizations can show, in an abstract way, the steps you need to take and how they will lead you to where you want to be. Whether you are just starting out or want to step up your visualization game, here are five tips that can help you get started.

Create a Vision Board

Vision boards are visual representations of your goals. You can make them using poster board or any other type of board that you prefer. If you are more comfortable drawing, you can even Doodle your vision board. When you create your vision board, you are not just creating a visual symbol of your goal, you are also setting the stage to help you reach it.

Creating a vision board is like having a conversation with your future self. You are getting creative, exploring ideas, and connecting with your future self to set yourself up for success. Vision boards are helpful for visualizing your goals because they are an image-based representation of your goal. That is why they are also referred to as visualization tools.

Sketch Out your Goal Before You Begin

When creating your vision board, start with the goal. What does it look like? What are the aspects of your life that you want to improve? Break down your goal into the aspects of your life that will be affected by achieving that goal. For example, if your goal is to further your career and be financially stable, you can draw a vision board of your dream job, a nice house in the suburbs, and a pool in the backyard.

If your goal is to be healthier, you can sketch out your ideal day spent running around a track in the park, followed by a healthy dinner with your family. Sketching out your goal before you begin will help you visualize where you want to be. You can also use this method to sketch out other aspects of your life that you want to improve, such as your fitness goals or relationships with family and friends.

Set SMART Goals

The SMART framework is a set of guidelines that can help you to create more effective goals. The goal should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and rigorous. Specific: Your goal should be specific enough to help you make progress. Your goal might be to complete a project, but do you really have a deadline?

If not, then your goal is too general. Measurable: Your goal should be measurable so that you can measure your progress. What will you track to see if you have made progress? How much progress will you make? Able to Be Achieved: Your goal should be within the realm of possibility.

It should be something that you, with the right amount of effort and dedication, can achieve. A relevant goal is only worth pursuing if it matters to you and you care enough to make it a part of your life. Realistic: Your goal should be realistic.

It should not be too high or too low. Unrealistic goals distract you from realistic ones. Additionally, unrealistic goals can drive you crazy and distract you from being present in the moment. Rigorous: Your goal should be rigorous. This means that it should be something that you spend the necessary effort on. If you do not put in the effort, then your goal is not going to be achieved.

Take a Walkthrough

After you have created your vision board and sketched out your goal, it is time to take a walkthrough. This is a visualization process that helps you see exactly how you will get from where you are now to where you want to be. You may want to take a walkthrough of your vision board with a friend, your partner, or a family member.

If you are more comfortable drawing, you can also use an app to create your walkthrough. During your walkthrough, ask yourself the following questions: What do I need to do to make my vision board a reality? What do I need to do to make my goal a reality? How do I fit all these things into my day-to-day life?

Draw Conclusions

After you walk through your vision board and answer the questions, you can draw conclusions. What do you notice? What do you think? What do you want? When you draw conclusions, you are making assumptions about what you have learned from walking through your vision board. What conclusions do you draw from your walkthrough?

Ask Yourself Why

After you have walked through your vision board and drawn conclusions, you can ask yourself why. What does your walkthrough tell you about why you want to achieve your goal? Why is this goal important to you? How will it positively affect other aspects of your life? When you ask yourself why, you are answering the question “Why is this important to me?” That question should be answered while your walk through your vision board.
