If you are struggling to get from where you are to where you want to be, a vision board can help you discover your life purpose, identify your goals and clarify your true needs and desires.
A vision board is simply a collage of pictures, images and words that are representative of what you want to do, who you want to be, where you want to live and the people and things you want to have in your life.
When you surround yourself with these images, you begin to attract into your life what you think about.
Things You'll Need:
- Any size bulletin board, tag board or art canvas
- Magazines, pictures, inspiring quotes
- Glue or tacks
Step 1Gather piles of old magazines, photographs, images and words that inspire you. Self, Oprah, Body+Soul, Real Simple,
interior design, travel and health magazines often have many inspiring images and phrases.
Step 2Cut out images that are representative of the goals you like to accomplish. As you are looking through the magazines, consider all aspects of your life. What would you like to attract in the areas of
career, family, relationships, spirituality, money, health, fitness, fun and adventure?
Step 3Arrange the images on your vision board. Put things into categories if it works for you. Get rid of pictures that no longer fit or feel right. As you look at the images that are representative of your life, how does it feel? Is there anything that is missing?
Step 4Glue the images to your vision board. Add words or sayings such as your favorite quotes or words of encouragement.
Step 5Place the vision board in a place where you see it often. Reflect on your vision board every 6-12 months and think about what has occurred. How is your life more aligned with your vision? What hasn't happened and do these things still fit into your vision?
