How To Set Up A Vision Board.....

January 1, 2018

Happy New Year to all of you! It is officially the year 2018 and I couldn't be more excited for what's in store this year. This is the first official post for 2018 and I hope you enjoy reading!

Being a creative person, I have always had a love for mood boards, inspiration boards, and vision boards. I love creating vision boards because there is just something so powerful about writing your vision, dreams, or goals down on paper; and I received almost everything that was on my board the first time I set up one. Because of that, for the past two years, I set up vision boards at the beginning of each year.

The Purpose:

I believe that setting up a vision board at the beginning of the year is such a powerful thing that keeps you focus on your goals for the year. A vision board can enable you or empower you to be consistent and persistent in achieving your dreams/goals. Also, I believe that a vision board is a great motivator that can motivate you and encourage you on days you feel like giving up.

Steps to creating one:

  1. Gather all the materials needed
  2. Cut up pictures or words from magazines that inspire you or relate to your goals for the year; or you can also print out the pictures if you don't have magazines
  3. Make sure that the pictures or words you've cut up reflect your goals or dreams for the year. Take out anything that does not
  4. Organize the pictures into categories that work for you. For example: I organize my life into 4 categories which are mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Then I organize my pictures into these categories so I know what my vision is for the year. 
  5. Glue pictures on to board and decorate it so you will want to see it every day
  6. Place the board somewhere that you will see every morning, afternoon, and night
  7. You can hang it above your bed, in your closet, or in your bathroom
  8. You can either take a picture of it and use it as a screen saver or you can print out the picture and carry it around with you.
  9. Make sure that you always have a picture of your vision board with you so it's easier to stay focus
  10. Remember, vision boards are supposed to be fun and not stressful, so have fun when you're making it and also if it starts to stress you out, take a 30 minute break and then come back to it.

One last thing I want to encourage all of us to do is to keep a journal and write down all the things on your vision board that has been accomplished. You'll be amazed at the things you were able to accomplish when you look back in your journal and reflect on it.

Word of the Day:

Habakkuk 2:2

"Then the LORD answered me and said:
       "Write the vision
          And make it plain on tablets,
          That he may run who reads it."
