Vision boards have been around for a while. Yet, many people think that they are not helpful. Well, they are wrong. It was proven numerous times that vision boards provide incentives, increase awareness and bring clarity to people’s dreams. So, if you have not used a vision board before, 2018 is the right year to create one. In this article, we will show you how to create your 2018 vision boards – the easy way.
Before you make the actual vision board, you have to take some things into consideration. To start with, you must analyze your goals. Like every person involved in business, you probably have some goals, but in many cases, men and women have very broad goals. The best idea is to be as specific as possible. So, “being successful” is a broad goal, “making $50000” in 2018 is a specific goal.
After that, you have to analyze the most important issues in your life. What makes a successful person in your eyes? What drives you to get out of bed in the morning? What kinds of goals make you happy when you achieve them? In order to get answers to these questions, you have to ask and answer some smaller questions like what kind of hobbies do you have? What can you learn this year?
When all these things are taken care of, you can start selecting a theme for your vision board. Remember that the vision board can have a more specific theme. For instance, if you want to expand your business, you can have a money theme. If you want success in your private life and career you can include different elements and incorporate them in a general theme.
Making a vision board
First of all, you have to select the format of the vision board. Generally speaking, you can make a classic paper vision board or a digital vision board in PowerPoint for example. In both cases, you will use similar elements. First of all, you need to collect some motivational images and place them on the board. Choose images that can inspire you. For example, if you want to visit some place, choose an image that represents that place in the best light.
The next step is to gather some motivational quotes and words. Select affirmations that you can repeat. You can use the Internet to find many quotes and words like this.
When you gather the images and words, you can start placing them on the vision board. It’s good to use a colorful background in order to stay focused. If your dreams for 2018 are calmer and more relaxing, you can use a white color or some neutral color. Some people say that it’s a smart move to use a photo of you in the middle of the board. In this way, all the motivational quotes and images will look like they are floating around you on the board (the law of attraction).
Finally, remember to place the vision board in a place where you can see it (almost) on a daily basis – in your office or in your living room/bedroom.
