Whether it’s Deepak Chopra or Oprah Winfrey, some of the world’s most successful people agree: a vision board is a powerful way to turn your goals into a reality. In fact, it was Oprah herself who said that you should “Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life because you become what you believe.”
After all, if you don’t articulate exactly what it is that you want from life – how are you going to take practical steps to get there? Here’s how a vision board can help you do just that, plus how to make one.
Firstly, what is a vision board?
A vision board is a collage of images and words that represent your individual wishes and life goals, intended to provide you with inspiration or motivation. It can be digital or physical, but the latter is generally more effective because you can put it in some place that you spend a lot of time in, helping reinforce your vision every time you see it.
A vision board is really just a rough sketch of what you want your life to look like, so don’t obsess about making it perfect. The idea is to have some fun, grab things that appeal to you instinctively, and start pulling all your inspiration into one visual representation – a mood board of what your ideal life.
An effective vision board covers 4 areas of your life: Relationships, career, health and financial goals. In visualising these different areas of your life, you are able to reflect on what needs work and what you’ve been doing well and this can aid in creating a balanced and healthy lifestyle for yourself.
How do I make one?
There are no hard and fast rules for making a vision board – which is what makes it fun! Here are some tips:
