Do you have a goal you want to achieve? It might feel impossible or overwhelming to think about. Or, you want to achieve it, but you don’t know how.
A vision board can help.
Below, we explain what a vision board is, why it works, and how you can create your own.
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a collage of images, quotes, affirmations, and inspiration related to your goal or vision. It’s a visual representation of how you want your life to be or what you want to accomplish. Your vision can be five years from now or 4 months from now. It depends on your individual goals.
Why does it work?
It gives you motivation
A collage of images, quotes, and affirmations will inspire and motivate you to achieve what is on the board. Similar to writing your goals in a journal, a vision board helps you create the life of your dreams by motivating you to achieve your vision.
It’s one thing to have a goal. But it’s another to have it posted on a vision board where you will see it every day. It feels more real. You are constantly reminded of where you want to be. It evokes a positive feeling associated with your goals. Every time you see your vision board, you envision your goal becoming a reality.
Put your thoughts together
The path to your goal may feel overwhelming. Or you might not know where to start or what the goal is. Creating a vision board with your goals helps you see what your goals really are. Once you know what your goal is you can develop a clearer path to achieve your goal.
You will be reminded of your goals every day and you will place more focus on achieving them.
Reassess your goals
When you begin achieving some of the goals on your vision board, you can start to reassess your goals and see the progress you made. It’s rewarding to see progress. This will keep you motivated and you will be more likely to achieve the other goals. Before you know it, you will be living the life you want because your life will start to look like your vision board.
How do I create a vision board?
- Find out what motivates you and what you want your life to look like in the future.
- Gather quotes, images, and affirmations that inspire you the most.
- Get creative. There is no right or wrong way to create a vision board. You can use Pinterest, Instagram, or Google Search for inspiration when creating your own vision board.
- Arrange your images, quotes, and affirmations according to your liking.
- Place your vision board on a wall, mirror, desk, or any place you will see it frequently.
Goals can feel overwhelming sometimes. You might not know where to start, what your goals are, and what you should focus on. Creating a vision board can help. It will motivate you, become a visual aide, help you put your thoughts together, keep you focused on your goals, and help you reassess your goals and track your progress. A vision of your life can have several goals. As you achieve these goals on your vision board, you will begin to realize that you are living the life you want.
