A creative vision board is a simple and fun way to motivate oneself in order to achieve one’s required goal. This MissionSelf post tells you how to make a creative and inspiring vision board right in the comfort of your home.
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
However “inspired” we may be in life, keep in mind that procrastination does not take us anywhere, as this J. K. Rowling quote explains. Therefore, dream big, but also work hard on making it a reality.
A vision board is a board which has a compilation of images and quotes which motivate you to realize your goal. The images glued on the board represent your vision of the future―these images may be of a coveted job, a university you wish to attend, or even of the ideal body you wish to have. Vision boards rely on the laws of attraction to help people realize their dreams. So, if you’re looking to create a fabulous vision board of your own, here are some creative ideas.
Things You’ll Need
You’d be glad to know that making a vision board does not require any fancy-schmancy art supplies or even heightened sense of aesthetics. As long as you have some basic supplies in hand, along with a strong vision of your goals, you’re good to go. Here’s a list of the things you need to gather.
1 A craft board
2 Old magazines/prints of images found online
5 Colored markers
So you see the supplies are basic; however, your ideas and creativity needs to be top-notch.
How to Go About It
Again, creating a neat vision board isn’t exactly rocket science. All you need to do is to cut out some inspiring images from magazines or source them from the Internet. These images need to be far from ordinary―they need to be striking and influential, good enough to make an impact on your mind. The purpose of these images and quotes is to push you forward towards achieving your goal.
Now, arrange these images on your vision board in a manner that is pleasing to the eye, and ensures good visibility as well. Paste the images on to the board, and you’ve made a start. You can also draft some cool and inspiring motivational messages on the board, or even request your family and friends to do it for you. And that’s all it takes to create a fabulous vision board.
The next and most important step is to place it at a vantage point―the vision board must be visible to you at all times, so carefully select a spot to place it. It can be nailed to the wall opposite to your bed, or just above your study table. In case you’re a stay-at-home parent who spends a lot of time in the kitchen or the den, find a suitable place in that area. The idea is to ensure that your goal―be it career-related or fitness-related―needs to be in front of your eyes at all times, so you don’t lose track of it.
