WHAT IS A VISION BOARD?
A vision board is anything that you want it to be; a vision board depicts and encompasses your dreams/ goals that you’ve set for yourself. Your vision board could be centered around any aspect of your life including but not limited to your career, personal life, finances, love life, etc. Your vision board can be what you’re wanting for you everyday life or something you’re wanting to achieve long-term; it’s truly up to you.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CREATING A VISION BOARD?
According to Psychology Today, “research suggests it can help us more easily reach our goals…. This may be due to how vision boards help us gain self-awareness and self-reflect on what is important to us.”
This gives a nod to the adage that if you only look for obstacles then you will only see obstacles but if you focus your energy on ways around those obstacles then this will be what you see instead of just the obstacles.
According to Developgoodhabits.com, there was a survey of more than 1,600 people that found that “82% of participants who used a vision board had accomplished more than half of the goals depicted on their board.”
HOW DO I MAKE MY OWN VISION BOARD?
This is the best part of the vison board (besides seeing your visions come to fruition)! A few things that you want to think about and solidify before starting to create your vision board is to figure out what you value most, what motivates you, and create priorities.
If you’re setting goals that aren’t aligned with your values or that you have no motivation to achieve then of course the vision board will not help! To create your very own vision board you can get a background (however large or small you’d like it to be), scissors, glue/ tape, drawing/ writing utensils, magazines, pictures, quotes, and whatever other creative addition you’d like to help make your vision board unique to you.
