Have you Created a NEW Vision Board?

If you’ve been paying attention to my previous emails, then you know I’m a firm believer in putting ideas on paper. A goal that’s rattling around in your head isn’t going to manifest until it becomes something more tangible.

That’s why I recommend that my clients create a vision board.

A vision board is a collection of images and words that encapsulate what you’d love to accomplish. Are you ready to put the right hemisphere of your brain to work and get creative? Here are five steps to creating a vision board.

Before you start, be sure to create a relaxing and fun environment. Find a quiet spot to work and give yourself at least an hour to create your vision board.

Next, you’ll need the right tools. You’ll find much of what you’ll need in random magazines. The images you’ll cut out can be pegged to a cork board or glued to poster board.

Now it’s time to get to work! First off, don’t limit yourself to just work goals. Is there a trip you’ve been meaning to take? A hobby you want to pick up or health goals? Personal goals are just as important as business goals, so give equal emphasis to both.  Don’t think too much about the exact image you want to have, go with what inspires you.

A picture is worth a thousand words, but actual words are important, too! Get a marker and write your favorite inspirational quotes on the pictures they apply to.

Choose magazines that you like and cut out the pictures, words or sayings out that touch you immediately. Don’t think about it too much. You’re moved for a reason.  Go for it.  This is a dynamic, living tool. But the important thing is that what you add to the board sparks something in you.

The goal of the board is to invoke feelings and connection to your goals with images, words, inspiration and continued reminders of what you’re after. At the times in which you might feel most low, this vision board is what will boost you and remind you of why you’re on the path you’re on.

Now that your vision board is complete, hang it where you’ll see it! Place it in a spot that you look at several times a day.

A clear vision creates success, and nothing is more clear than a vision board!
