A few weeks ago, the members of “Between Us Girls”, a women’s networking group, got together to visualize, create, and live their dreams
(on a vision board). It was incredible. It empowered one another to reach for the stars as we created “pictures” of our future.
What is a vision board?
It is a board, poster board, and picture board, whatever type of display that would attract you to look at it constantly! On the board, you place pictures, quotations, ideas, and anything else that would remind and inspire you to achieve your goals. There are a million ways to create a vision board. You can start with a specific goal in mind or several. You can make it for a specific time period i.e. 3 months or over your lifetime. The more specific you are, the better.
How do you make a vision board?
Step 1: Gather all types of magazines, newspapers, etc.
Step 2: Thumb through them considering what your goals might be.
Step 3: Cut out anything that catches your eye. Don’t let your doubt filter out possible great ideas.
Step 4: Focus on what you DO want versus what you do not want. For example, instead of losing weight, focus on the body you would like to have i.e. if you are a size 14, don’t focus on losing 10 pounds. Focus on being a size 12. Instead of focusing on what you hate about your job, focus on what you would like in your job.
Step 5: Paste your ideas on your board. The only right way to do this is YOUR way.
Step 6: Post the board where you will look at it the most. The more you see it, the more you remind yourself of your goals and vision.
Step 7: Share your board. Talk about your dreams. The more you visualize and focus on what you want, the more you will re-train your way of thinking thereby eliminating what you don’t want.
Step 8: Have fun!
