One of the ways to capture your 2018 business and personal goals is by creating a vision board – a collection of images and words brought together in one place to provide you with visual stimulus and inspire you towards your dreams.
A vision board is based on the idea that when you surround yourself with images of what you want from life, yourself and your business, you focus on the ways to change things to match those desires and dreams.
Your vision board can be specific and literal (eg. Jimmy Choo shoes) or broad and imaginative (words and colours). Or maybe a combination of these things.
You will need:
- To be in a happy, comfortable space
- A magazine stash
- Poster Board (or a diary).
Assemble all your materials together and sit quietly with your eyes closed. Ask yourself, what is it in your heart you want to achieve? What do you desire? Try to imagine your preferred future. What does is look like, feel like, smell like? What is in the environment surrounding you? It might be words or images that come to you.
If you are using magazines - start cutting out images from the magazines that represent these thoughts and feelings. No gluing yet and don’t be too specific at the start. Just keep cutting until you have assembled a big selection of images, words and, colours.
Create a pile of your favourites. Is there something missing? If so, you might have to draw a picture or find another pile of mags. Or leave some space.
Lay the pictures on the board and experiment with the way they are laid out. You might group material things in one section and spiritual in another. When you’re satisfied with your mock layout, start gluing. You might want to leave some room on your board for a photo of yourself surrounded by all your desires.
Hang it up where you will see it often. You might also want to copy a mini-sized version to carry with you in your wallet.
If you are using Pinterest find the words, images and memes that resonate with your goals. You might want it to be a private or public Board.
I would love to see your Vision Boards - here's mine (and still a work in progress)!
