Listen, I know how making a vision board seems. I used to be a super skeptic, remember? But vision boards work. They’re an awesome tool to help you get clear about your intentions. Once you’re clear, you can use the vision board as a reminder to take consistent action toward your goals.
FIVE STEPS TO MAKE A VISION BOARD
1. CLARIFY YOUR INTENTIONS
Similar to the first step of manifesting, for this whole thing to work, you need to get crystal clear about what you want. This could be literally anything. Do you want a new car? A new hairstyle? A new house? Or maybe you want something else – effortless prosperity or an optimistic mindset. Keep these intentions at the forefront of your mind while you move into the next step.
2. GATHER SUPPLIES
Vision boards can take many different forms – poster or cork board, an art book or even a digital form with a Pinterest board or your computer wallpaper. Consider what form works for you and your lifestyle and gather what you need. Personally, I use a cork board like this one, pictures I had printed at a local copy shop and cute push pins like these.
I searched through Pinterest and found quotes and pictures that inspire me, but you can use anything! Pictures from magazines, quotes you’ve written yourself, inspirational cards you’ve received – anything that inspires you to take consistent action!
3. ASSEMBLE YOUR VISION BOARD
This is totally personal and completely dictated by your own aesthetic. I used my vision board to keep focus on my mindset and business success. I originally kept my board full of inspiration and after a year, I pared down to the images that inspired me the most.
There’s no wrong way to assemble your vision board! If it brings you joy and inspires you to move in the direction of your dreams, you’re doing it right! (I know, I sound all touchy-feely, but this stuff works!)
4. PUT IT WHERE YOU CAN SEE IT
This is kinda obvious, right? Out of sight, out of mind. So put your board somewhere prominent! If you’re using a digital vision board, set it as your computer desktop so you see it every time you log on. If you’re using an art book, keep it with your phone and flip through it throughout the day. I’ve always kept my vision board up on the wall, right in my line of sight. It keeps me on task and focused on my goals.
5. TAKE CONSISTENT ACTION
We are what we consistently do, right? You can’t say you’re health-conscious and eat McDonalds Happy Meals every day. It’s just not consistent; it makes no sense. So use your vision board as a reminder to take consistent action toward your goals.“You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.” -Tony RobbinsClick To Tweet
