What is a Vision Board
It’s a place to display images, words, or objects that represent what you want to be and do with your life in one beautiful, central location all while keeping your thoughts and actions organized enough to accomplish it.
The Power of a Vision board relies on your honest intention, committed effort, ruthless belief, and the Law of Attraction.
What You Need
- An Open and Honest Heart
- A list of measurable goals and desires
- Foam Core board/Poster Board (These are traditional, but don’t be afraid to get creative. Last year I created a vision binder. Which allowed me to carry my vision around with me everyday and flip through the pages whenever I wanted. This year I’ll be posting my visions in black frames neatly assorted on my office wall for a more aesthetic pleasure. Get Creative if you’d like.)
- A plethora of magazines (real estate, home, food, body, beauty, industrial, business, travel, fashion, if you see a magazine grab it.)
- Internet Access and Color ink printer (optional)
- Uninterrupted time
“The vision boards work so well because they are essentially all about pictures and clear pictures help to stimulate feelings and emotions.”
Let’s Get Started
- Begin exploring your magazines and internet photos that speak to who you are and who you seek to become.
Here are some handy questions that will help you to create your best vision board:
What would you do differently when you realize your goal?
Where would you travel?
Where would you live?
What would you wear?
What things would you own?
What kind of vehicle would you drive?
What would you do for work?…Or would you work?
Who would you help?
2. Sort through your photos and phrases. Select the ones that speak to your truth most clearly and accurately.
3. Cut those photos and phrases out
4. Organize them in such a way that resonates with you emotionally. Think about the placement. What is in the center, first, on top, and last.
5.Begin to neatly paste your visuals on your board.
Focus your vision board on the following:
- Health and Wellness
Remember that one time when Jim Carrey as a struggling young comedian tried to make it in the make or break city of Hollywood? Jim Carrey was just about ready to give up his dream of becoming a professional actor and comedian. He had just performed at an open mic session at one of the nightclubs in Los Angeles and had been booed off the stage by his audience. He sat by himself at the top of Mulholand Drive and looked out at the city below him—the city that held his future success or failure. He then pulled out his check book and wrote himself a check for $10 million dollars and made a note on it: “for acting services rendered.” He then carried that check with him in his wallet everywhere he went from that day forward. By 1995, after the success of his blockbuster movies: Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Dumb and Dumber, and The Mask, his contract price had risen to the price of $20 million dollars.
