A vision board can be an incredibly powerful tool to help you reach your goals, but it’s also a surprisingly fun project! You’ll be able to unlock your inner creativity and make it an amazing representation of you. If you haven’t read why vision boards can change your year, read it now before this.
There are no rules to creating the perfect vision board, but here are some tips to help get you started.
1. FIND WHAT MOTIVATES YOU
After you set your goals, it’s time to bring those goals to life! Grab the latest editions of your favourite magazines and starting cutting out pages of inspiration. Find some quotes that inspire you and print them off in some of your favourite fonts, or even on different coloured paper. After you have plenty to work with, narrow it down to your favourite inspirational material.
2. PRIORITISE YOUR GOALS
Decide what your most important goals are for this year and choose a front and centre section of your vision board that can be used to represent those goals. Keeping your inspiration in a prominent position on your vision board will, in turn, give it a prominent position in your mind!
3. LEAVE A BLANK SPACE
Consider leaving a small blank space to add new goals and motivational material as you become inspired throughout the year. Don’t be afraid to re-evaluate your vision board from time to time and re-arrange material as necessary!
4. GET CREATIVE!
The more time and effort that you put into your vision board, the more it will resonate with you mentally and emotionally. Again, there are no rules for what to use to create your board, but don’t be afraid to think outside the box! Some popular options are a whiteboard or corkboard, but you can also choose some DIY options, such as creating a fabric board or even painting a chalkboard wall in your home or office!
5. CHOOSE A PROMINENT LOCATION
The most important thing to remember when creating your vision board is to keep it in a prominent location, where you are guaranteed to see it multiple times throughout the day. This will not only ensure that your goals are always on your mind, but it will keep you motivated on a daily basis!
Good luck with creating a vision board that represents what you want out of this new year! Rosabeth Moss Canter once said
A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more
