Have you heard the term vision board? So many people are doing them now; I love them because they can be empowering!
Think of them as a roadmap to guide you from where you are to where you want to be.
I started my vision board nearly three years ago, and it’s a beautiful snapshot of the future that I aim to create every day.
But how do you go about creating your vision board?
Well, first of all, the process needs to be fun! These are your life goals - they should be inspiring, exciting and motivational. Put on your favourite tunes, get in the zone and don’t put any limits on yourself.
This is your vision, not anyone else's, so don’t stick to rules - get creative! You can either compartmentalise it into sections of travel, home, family, mantras, things to try, career… anything you want to achieve.
Or you can have a corkboard of random pictures and mantras (that’s how I have created mine).
If you love digital visuals, then you could create a vision board on Pinterest or have your goals as a screensaver on your phone or laptop.
Your vision board is exactly that - your vision board, so it has to be relevant to you. Just because someone else wants to climb Mount Everest, it doesn’t mean you should want to.
If you want to go and spend 2 weeks in the Arctic, then own that and be proud of it!
If your goal is to spend time making peace with your body, then you channel your energy into that - it doesn’t matter if someone else doesn’t find that inspiring!
Be open to your vision of your future-self always changing. We very rarely stand still for long in life, and our dreams and aspirations evolve as we grow. Over the years, I have taken things off my vision board that no longer excite me, and I have swapped some pictures to suit my changing mind. The more up-to-date you keep your vision board, the more motivation you’ll have to act on it.
Put your vision board somewhere you'll see it every day! The more you see it, the more it becomes a part of you, and it will feel normal to keep moving towards it. If it’s hidden, then so are your dreams. My vision board is on the wall beside my bed so that I see it as soon as I wake up each morning.
So there you go! Why don’t you have a go at creating your own vision board?
I would love to see them if you would be so vulnerable to share them.
