In this blog post I will teach you how you can create your own vision board that will motivate you and lead you to success. I’ll share with you my step by step process of the vision board I created for my “Finding Your Best You” business.
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a visual tool made from an arrangement of images, quotes and other visual ideas that represent your ideal outcome and helps you to maintain focus. The idea is that a vision board is a constant visual reminder of what your life is going to be like and how you’re going to feel once you have achieved your goal. You can refer to it to keep you motivated and you can also refer to it when you’re feeling any uncertainty, self-doubt, frustration or fear that you may feel when you’re working towards your goals.
A vision board is a collection of images, quotes, words and numbers that are arranged on a poster, a board or a page in your journal. The idea is that your board will illustrate what things will be like once you’ve reached your goal and how you’re going to feel once you get there.
Why Visualisation is Important for Goal Setting?
Visualising your success is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can do. According to the popular book The Secret, “The Law of Attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualising, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe”. The Law of Attraction is the ability to attract our thoughts, positive or negative, into the world and bring them to reality.
Are you Ready?
Do you have a goal that you’ve always wanted to work towards? It could be anything. It could be that you want to lose weight, that you want to earn extra income, that you want to purchase your own home one day or you have a business idea that you cannot wait to get off the ground. It could be anything. I’ve chosen to create my vision board for ‘Finding Your Best You’.
I want you to think like you’ve already achieved the success you crave. What does it look like? How do you feel?
I want you to be creative when you work on your vision board. Give yourself permission to spend time on this activity. Think about the prompts listed below when creating your vision board.
- What will your life look like when you’ve achieved your goal?
- How are you going to feel once you’ve achieved it?
- How is your life going to be different?
Think about the colours, the feelings, the words and your rewards. You can also include motivational quotes or anything that is going to keep you motivated along the way. Your going to use your board as a motivation prompt when you feel anxious and fearful and have those moments of self-doubt.
Collect Your Images
The images that you can use can be found anywhere. They could be in your photo albums already (make copies if needed), magazines, newspapers, catalogs or online. As you begin to gather your images you’ll begin to see themes not only about your ultimate goal, but your feelings of how you’re going to feel once you’ve achieved it.
Include positive words, affirmations and inspirational quotes that resonate with you and that will keep you motivated.
Arrange Your Board
There is no right or wrong way to arrange your vision board. Arrange it in such a way that it is going to create meaning for you.
This is what I came up with when I created my vision board for ‘Finding Your Best You’. I tried setting it out many ways but this way worked for me the most. My focus of the board is in the middle. On the left is my vision for ‘Finding Your Best You’ and on the right is what I’m going to do once I achieve my goal and how I am going to feel once I get there.
What does your vision look like? If you’re feeling up to it I encourage you to share your vision board below, on my Facebook Page or my group board on Pinterest. If you’re not, you’re welcome to send me an email.
I’d like to see what you have come up with.
Here’s to finding your best you.
