Have you heard of the Vision Board?
A Vision Board is a collage of pictures and words that depict ones goals and vision. Their purpose is to inspire and motivate the creator to go oit and reach their goals.
Perhaps you have seen beautiful collages with pictures and images of far off places, empowering words and elegantly hand lettered titles that depict one's life goals and dreams. Perhaps you are a little intimidated or worried you don't have the time or imagination to create such a work of art. Don't worry if you lack hand lettering skills or would rather read a good magazine than thumb through it for the perfect picture of that dream vacation. I am going to share a few simple steps you can take to create your own collage that will inspire you to reach new heights!
Where to Start
There are many ways to Vision Board. It can be as simple as doodles on a piece of paper, a poster board collage or a digital compilation. I, personally, like using Canva to create digital boards. I can use their photos, play with fun and pretty fonts and print multiple copies for myself when I am finished.
Here is my 2021 Vision Board:
The images and words only have to have meaning to the person creating it. When I look at my vision board, I am reminded that my family is important and to be sure to carve out time to foster and build healthy relationships. Fueling my body through healthy food and exercise is a priority. I am reminded to push outside my comfort zone if I want to be successful and as I grow my business, I use the word Fearless when I am feeling hesitant or scared to promote a new product.
Whether you are creating a board as a New Years Resolution or you are starting a new journey, it is time to get started. Follow these simple steps to create your own Vision Board.
The MOST important part of this project is to post your board where you will see it often. If you created a digital board, make it your phone or computer background. Hang a copy in your office if this is where you spend most of your day. Stick it to the fridge or hang it next to the bathroom mirror.
Displaying it and seeing it often is an empowering action that will remind you to make every day matter. Every decision you make, every action you take should be something that gets you closer to at least one thing on your board.
Don't worry if you do not achieve everything on your board within the time frame you chose. The goal is to get closer and accomplish as much as you can. At the end of your goal timeline, reflect on what you have accomplished, reward yourself, take a short break and then prepare to create your next vision board.
