On this episode of passion and potential I’m going to tell you why you should make a vision board. I make a vision board every single year. That way I can look back and analyze the growth I’ve had.
A vision board should be a combination of photos and goals that represent what you want your life to look like and what you want to achieve. For example, I like to flip through magazines and scroll through Pinterest to find photos and quotes. Magazines you can cut out and glue onto your board/poster. Meanwhile, with Pinterest you’ll have to print or write/draw the images and quotes you want.
I like to have a vision board party with friends at the beginning of the year. Firstly, I lay out a bunch of magazines and craft supplies. After that, we all work on our vision boards together and can be inspired by each other.
Visual accountability makes your visions real and tangible rather just a thought. Making vision boards with your friends is even more accountability because you’re telling people about your goals. Further, it helps take your thoughts and turns them into a reality.
My vision boards always turn into a giant art project. The beauty of a vision board is it can look however you want. That is to say your’s doesn’t have to look anything like mine. A vision board is creative organization. To make a vision board you need to organize all of your thoughts and creatively lay them out. This motivates you to organize all those thoughts in your head.
Looking back at past vision board reminds you of how you were feeling and what you felt was important. You can look back and be humbled as well as reflect on everything you’ve accomplished. We go through life so quickly if you don’t take the time to slow down, you may not realize how far you’ve come.
When creating a vision board you really analyze what is super important to you at that time. Moreover, creating with others will offer additional ideas for you to consider. When you finish your vision board you’ll probably see some themes and patterns among your board. As a result, you may have realized a goal that you hadn’t verbalized yet.
A vision board isn’t a list of I haven’t’s. But instead a list of I will’s. So, a vision board can be the outline of the next chapter of your story. Your vision board from last year probably doesn’t align with what you’re trying to do now. So, you need a fresh, updated vision for your future with your current priorities. Focus on what you’re capable of and want to achieve moving forward.
In the past I wanted to be free more than anything and my the quotes on my vision board reflected that. Here are some quotes from my past vision boards, maybe they will speak to you and your journey as well.
I hope this helps you create a vision board and achieve your goals! Share your vision board with me on Instagram or join my Passion & Potential Facebook Group that goes hand in hand with the podcast and share it there.
