How to Create a Visual Board

Vision Boards are a visual To-Do list for your future.  It works with your subconscious to keep your goals in front of you and remind you of all you deserve.  You can be as specific as you'd like - what your wedding dress, cake, bridal party will look like or exactly how you'd like to furnish your each room in your home to a broader spectrum - a beautiful sunset on the beach to represent vacation or peace or strong words such as "Success".

Creating a Vision Board is fun and can be done alone or gather some of your friends or colleagues and sit down.  You might create a Vision Board for your department and hang it in the conference room or lunch room.  Then watch how you turn your dreams into goals and create your future.

There is a quote that goes something like "You must be able to visualize where you are going or you will never get anywhere."  I guess that means that we must know our destination in order to get there or we will end up somewhere else.  Kind of like driving.  We are in the driver's seat of our life.  

Building a Vision Board is simple and requires easy supplies: 

1.  A Board of some sort

  • Cork board
  • Magnetic board (refrigerator or cookie sheet)
  • Wall
  • Door

2.  Additional Tools
  • Magazine pictures
  • Personal photos
  • Drawings
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pushpins
  • Magnets
  • Crayons
  • Markers
  • Tape
  • Computer

3.  Go crazy!  Dream BIG! 
  • Choose phrases and pictures that reflect your dreams.
  • Have fun!
4.  Areas to consider
  • Money
  • Life
  • Ideal Vacation
  • Relationships
  • Family
  • Dreams
  • Work

     5.  Keep Your Vision Board with You
    • Take a picture of your completed Vision Board 
      • Keep it by your bathroom mirror
      • Keep it above your desk
      • Post it on your refrigerator
      • Make it your screen saver on the computer
      • Keep it in your phone
      • Keep a copy in your wallet
    • Look at your Vision Board Often

    It was exciting to find successful people that use vision boards.  In fact, Kathleen Pickering offers to upload your vision board if you send it to her.  That is such a neat idea, I will do the same.  The more we can spread the word, the easier it is for the Law of Attraction to help us.

    Each of the websites above explain what a vision board is and how to create one.  Another person I'd like to point out is Christine Kane.  She explains what a vision board is, the three types, and how to use them.  She also has a gift waiting for you.

    Have you created a vision board?  How has it helped?  Do you create a new one each year?

    P.S., Remember to send your vision board and a link (if you have one) to your website or vision board post and I'll add it.  What shall we name the Vision Board page?
