What is a vision board?
A collection of pictures and images that inspire you to make your dreams a reality.
A good vision board could show your…
- Dream job
- Dream vacation
- Family Goals
- Career goals
- Personal aspirations
- Health and fitness goals
Actively seeking these dreams is a regular reminder of what you are working to achieve.
Avoid images that discourage you or make you feel like you’re not good enough. These should inspire you, not take you down.
The Raw Materials:
- Choose your canvas: blank poster board, cardstock, digital (think screen saver), corkboard, blank book, scrapbook
- Find your pictures: magazines, online, Pinterest, Instagram, other social media, real-life imagery, Google images, business cards, tags stickers any imagery that inspires you
- Keep it somewhere you will see it – digital? On your laptop or phone desktop is perfect – as a desktop image! Keep poster boards in a place you will see it daily, such as your office, your bathroom or bedroom walls for daily inspiration.
