So, I did a thing. After weeks of planning, I created my very own vision board. I know it’s nothing new. People have been creating vision boards for years now. I’m extremely late to the party, but I can definitely see this as an annual tradition of mine moving forward. There was just something so therapeutic about writing out my goals and then covering a board with visual representations of them. I’m telling y’all, seeing the finished product made me feel like I could accomplish everything in front of me.
It’s a new year, so it’s time to set new goals and face new challenges. What better way to do that than to create your very own vision board?
What You Need:
1 poster board, canvas board, or cork board
1 pair of scissors
Old magazines, newspaper, or internet (for those of you that can’t stay away from Pinterest)
Glue, tape, or pins (thumbtacks)
List of goals (long or short-term)
Step 1: Reflect
Reflect on all of the things you have accomplished so far. While you’re at it, reflect on the challenges you’ve faced as well. Did you accomplish everything you’ve set out to accomplish so far? Is there still room for improvement?
Step 2: Set Goals
Based on your reflections, make a list of goals for yourself (or your family). Whether long or short-term, anything you want to accomplish should be on this list.
Step 3: Representation
Once you’re done reflecting and setting your goals, it’s time to find picture representations. Old magazines, newspapers, and Pinterest are the best places to look.
Step 4: Trust The Process
Now that you have your images, it’s time to place them on the board .You can use any size board you’d like depending on where you plan on placing the finished product. Remember that this is your board, your vision, and your goals. It’s supposed to look the way that you want it to look. I believe wholeheartedly that we get what we put out into the atmosphere, and creating your own vision board is the perfect way to do that.
