A vision board is exactly what it sounds like: a physical wish list that houses your goals and visions for the future. Here, we share some tips on how to build your vision board and how it can help turn your dreams into reality.
Building Your Vision Board
- Set Your Goals
First and foremost, you need to know what goals you’re striving to achieve. Everyone’s vision board will be different. You can think about short-term goals, long-term goals, or even those overarching goals that have always felt entirely out of reach. Whatever you want to manifest, make sure you have clearly defined it.
- Organize Your Board
The next step is to begin the planning process. Because your board can look however you like, you have a lot of freedom in terms of what to include. Do you want to create a single board for every short-term goal you have? Do you want separate vision boards for personal and professional goals? However you want to organize your goals is up to you, and it will dictate how your board looks.
- Create Your Board in a Way That Speaks to You
Lastly, you’ll begin putting your board together in a way that makes sense for you. Some individuals cut out images from magazines or other objects that speak to them. Others prefer text-only boards. Some prefer a combination of both. Your vision board is all about you and your goals, so don’t be afraid to get carried away with it.
How Vision Boards Work
You’ve heard the phrase, “Out of sight, out of mind.” When you aren’t constantly reminded of your goals, it’s easy for them to slip through the cracks. Vision boards provide daily visual reminders of everything you’re looking to achieve. When you see your goals outlined every day, you’ll likely have increased motivation to work toward them, which is why people have found success after creating their boards.
We also believe that vision boards work because we are all faced with daily decisions and choices – and if you know what you want in advance, it can help lead you to where you want to go!
So get those creative juices flowing, and start building your vision board. As soon as you do, your dreams will likely feel that much closer to reality.
