The best way to achieve your goals is to keep them top of mind and a vision board is the perfect tool to help you do that. Vision boards help set and prioritize goals, values, and intentions. Not to mention, they are fun to make! Here are some tips to keep in mind while creating and using your vision board:
Choose your board. A vision board can take many forms aside from the traditional poster board. Other ideas include using an online photo album, a bulletin board, or an inspiration wall.
Be clear on your goals. The most important step in creating an effective vision board is to be clear on. Take some time to write out your goals, and how you plan to accomplish these in the next six months.
Be selective. Find pictures that symbolize experiences, feelings, and possessions you’d like to have in your life. Keep it simple and clear—too many images can be distracting. Try taking your own photos for a more personal touch.
Add words. A vision board doesn’t have to be only pictures. Create a list of positive affirmations or inspirational messages that describe how you want to feel on a daily basis and add them to your board.
Review your board daily. Place your board somewhere you will see it regularly. Dedicate time each day to focus on your board and what you want to accomplish. Imagine the positive changes that will happen once your visions become reality.
Refresh if needed. When you look at your images, you should feel excited and motivated to work toward your goals. Looking at the same image repeatedly can sometimes start to feel a bit old. If this happens, or when you achieve a goal, be sure to refresh your vision board so that you feel motivated. Take your thoughts and turn them into something tangible. Start making your dreams a reality and give it a try!
