How To Create A Vision Board To Help You Achieve Your Goals
1. What do you want to achieve?
Before you start creating your board, you need to have a very clear and thoughtful vision of the goals you want to accomplish.
- What makes you happy?
- What goals do you want to accomplish?
- What do you want your life to look like this time next year?
- You should also create a time frame for your vision board. Do you want to accomplish those goals next summer, next year or in 5 years?
Don’t forget to focus on how you want to feel and not so much about what you want to have. Plus, be realistic. It’s better to be surprised than disappointed.
2. Create your vision board
The second step is the most fun!
Go on Pinterest or grab some magazines and start cutting out pictures, quotes or words that illustrate your goals.
You will then need a poster or a cork board to start creating your vision board. You can place the images randomly or follow a theme (body, soul, work, etc.). You can also write some words of empowerment that will motivate you every time you look at it.
Be creative and have fun!
3. Place it somewhere you can see every day
A vision board should work as a constant reminder of your dreams. It’s a way to keep you focused on your goals and boost your motivation to work hard towards making them a reality, so don’t hide it in your closet. It should be placed somewhere you can see every day.
4. Set a plan of action
Creating your vision board is not the final step. You need a plan of action with the steps you need to take in order to achieve your goal.
Let’s say you want to travel more. You find some inspiring pictures and write down that goal on a piece of paper. That dream will not become a reality if you don’t find a strategy to make it happen.
The vision board is a good way to visualize the life you want but it’s not a miraculous tool. If you want to travel more, write down small steps you need to take to get there – for instance, save xamount of money per month, take your own lunch to work, etc.
5. Believe your dream can become a reality
It might sound cheesy but one of the most important steps to make your dreams happen is to believe they can actually come true. Be intentional and believe. Believe you can create your ideal life as long as you are committed and do the work!
