First off, what is a vision board?
It’s anything thing that contains all your dreams and goals. Most people like to put them on a piece of paper or poster board, but you can also keep your pictures in an album or container. It’s basically a visual of all your dreams, goals, and desires.
How to Make a Vision Board
- Gather supplies: paper, pens, magazines, or pictures of your dreams and goals from internet. free picture site (Pixabay)
- Figure out what your goals are and what you would like to represent it. This can be in the form of words (ex. $1 million dollars) or pictures (picture of a lot of money). I like to do both. I also like to add motivational quotes to mine.
- Cut out the pictures you want from the magazine as well as any words that reflect what you want. You can also print pictures from a free image site (see #1) or you can write what you want on your board.
- Paste the pictures in a fun way. Be creative. I like to use a lot of color on mine, so I’ll write words that reflect my goals in different colors.
How to Get the Most out of you Vision Board
It’s important to have a clear understanding of what you want. However, if you make it, then stick it in a drawer and never look at it, it’s really not going to help you very much. Below are a few tips to get the most out of your vision board.
- Put it somewhere that you will see it daily. Personally, I recommend putting it on your mirror or if poster board, then behind your bathroom sink handles. This way every time you get ready in the morning, you will see it.
- Read over everything on your Vision Board every single day. This is a must. You need your subconscious mind to know what you are going after.
- As you read over your dreams and goals, try to imagine yourself as if you have already achieved them. I recommend using as many senses as possible. Really engage your mind so it feels like you are in that moment now. I can always tell when I’m doing it correctly because a big smile will cascade across my face.
- Take one of your goals for the day and go through your day as if you have already achieved it. Allow yourself to feel this incredibly wonderful feeling for the entire day.
- (Bonus) Before you go to bed at night, read over your vision board and allow your thoughts to drift toward how you feel after you have achieved all your goals. Keep that thought in your mind until you fall asleep.
I wish you a ton of success with your board and would love to see it after you have made yours. Also remember two things, one is it doesn’t have to be perfect and two, it’s yours, so make it how ever you would like. So many people never start because they are afraid it won’t look good enough. It’s for your eyes only. You don’t have to share it with anyone, so make it how you want it.
