As the new year approaches, its time to create/update our Vision Board. But if you have never created one before, how do you get started?
What is a Vision Board?
A vision board is a powerful visualization tool that you can use as inspiration for your journey toward your ideal life and achievement of your goals.
Some people refer to it as a “dream board”, “mood board” or an “inspiration board.” No matter what you call it, it’s boils down to a collage of pictures, words and/or quotes that visually stimulate you and remind you of your passion and purpose and ultimate end goal.
How can a bunch of pictures and words be so powerful?
The idea behind creating a Vision Board is when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you desire to have, what you want to create or build, your ideal lifestyle, your life will begin to shift and change to match those images and those desires. You have “named it and claimed it.” Spoke it into existence.
A Vision Board simply adds clarity to your dreams and desires so they shift to goals and plans. As you become clear and focused, you begin to make decisions based on that clarity.
How do I make a Vision Board?
There’s no wrong way to make a vision board. No matter what supplies you use, it’s a great way to paint a picture of the future you want.
There are so many different ways you could make a vision board so be creative. You can use:
- Posters : Glue images to a piece of poster board. (I pretty things, so you could also buy a frame and hang it when you are done).
- Goal-specific vision boards :These are vision boards specifically for one goal (getting my first book finished and published) or for one area of my life (weight-loss and healthy eating )
- Cork board or bulletin board: Use pushpins to attach images and words to a bulletin board. This is pretty cool to update your pictures and quotes over time.
- Mobile: You can create vision boards on your phone. YES THERE IS AN APP FOR THAT TOO! This allows you to take your board with you and look at it during your work day, at the gym, etc.
Pick one or multiples way that suit your personality. This is such a hghly personal thing and you can not get it wrong. If you want added inspiration, throw a Vision board party and invite others over and you guys can share the creative energy!
No matter how you do, Vision boards are powerful. Now let’s get to work!
