Creating a vision board is an effective way to manifest your goals and dreams. It's a collection of images, statements, words, or anything else positive and significant that attracts, inspires, and motivates you. It should include anything that inspires you and represent your goals and the things you want to work for in your life. Here is an easy and effective nine-step tutorial to help you create a vision board that works.
Step 1: Gather Your SuppliesYou'll need a few things to create your vision board, so make sure you have all the supplies you need. You'll need a cardboard or cork board, scissors, glue, magazines, and any other items you want to include on your board.
Step 2: Brainstorm Your GoalsBefore you start creating your vision board, take some time to brainstorm your goals. Create a story about where you see yourself in five years.
Include details such as the specific brand and type of shoes you'll be wearing, what job you have, and what furniture is in each room of your home.
Step 3: Collect ImagesOnce you have a clear idea of what you want to achieve, start collecting images that represent those goals. Look through magazines or online for images that inspire you and represent your goals. Cut out the images or print them out and set them aside.
Step 4: Place Images on BoardWith the cardboard in front of you and the bunch of images at hand, review the images and decide what belongs on the cardboard and place it roughly in the section where it will go. Crop the backgrounds or crop the images on the fly if you want.
Step 5: Add WordsIn addition to images, add words or quotes that motivate and inspire you. You can write them on the board or print them out and glue them on.
Step 6: Arrange ImagesOnce all the images are placed on the board, arrange them in a way that makes sense to you. You can also add other elements such as ribbons or stickers to make it more visually appealing.
Step 7: Review Your Vision BoardTake a step back and look at your vision board. How does it look? If you're happy with it, continue to the next step.
Otherwise, continue sorting, adding images or words, and cropping others until you're happy with it.
Step 8: Hang Your Vision BoardHang your vision board somewhere where you can see it every day. This will help keep your goals top of mind so that you can stay motivated and focused on achieving them.
Step 9: Revisit Your Vision Board RegularlyRevisit your vision board regularly to make sure it still reflects your goals and dreams.
As your goals change over time, update your vision board accordingly so that it continues to motivate and inspire you.
