BookHangout Tribe X Nene Uwa Hub Ltd Vision Board Hangout

On January 26, 2020 – the BHTribe Community co-hosted a Vision Board Session with me, BH-Triber Nnenna. It was an enlightening and educative session as well as a humbling one for me.

The review of our book for the month of January – “Start with WHY” by Simon Sinek, was tied to the vision board session. To start off, a section of the book was read to understand why the book connected so well with building a vision board.

Simon Sinek wrote in the book, “Achievements come when you pursue and attain WHAT you want. Success comes when you are clear in pursuit of WHY you want it”

To drive this point, I explained how it is possible to build a vision board and not achieve anything you put on it. That it is important to learn how to build a vision board that truly works for you.

BH-Tribers were taught how to divide their desires into eight parts namely: relationship, career & business, health & wellness, spirituality, travel & self-care, charity & volunteering, education & self-development and finances.

They were advised to write down their desired achievements for these eight sections. After doing that, they were given magazines to go through and cut out pictures that represented those desires.

Before the session ended, the BHTribers were given a brief guide on how to set their goals based on what they have on their vision board.

A key Point to note – Your desires are different from your goals. Desire is something you strongly wish for or want. Goal is setting up yourself to achieve that desire.

For example, I desire to read 12 books in 2020 to develop my knowledge. My goal is to read and finish one book every month. So for the next 4 weeks, I will ensure that each day I read a chapter or two and finish the book before the end of the month. That’s the difference between ‘Desires’ and ‘Goals’.

While building a vision board, it is important to know your WHY (desires), HOW (goals) and WHAT (requirements) to ensure it works.

As Helen Keller said “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision”

In conclusion, understand and write down your desires before you build a vision board and set your goals.

“Success comes when we wake up every day in that never-ending pursuit of WHY we do WHAT we do. Our achievements, WHAT we do, serves as the milestones to indicate we are on the right path.”
