Continue reading below to learn all about the illustrious vision board, how you can create your own, and how your board can get you on the path to start your new year on the up-swing.
Ok, so what is a vision board?
A vision board, also known as a dream board, treasure map, or vision map, is a tool used to help you focus on your visions, your dreams and your goals. It can be on a board, a series of post-its, or even a piece of notebook paper. It doesn’t really matter, as long as it is has your ideas on it.
Using visualization, the law of attraction, and intentions, a vision board will keep your goals in the forefront of you mind, act as a catalyst to catapult towards your desires, and can act as a road-map to take you to where you want to go.
“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” —Andrew Carnegie

How to create your own vision board.
Take some time to gather your ideas, dreams, and desires.
Ask yourself what do you want out of life? Think about a range of categories such as: love, fitness, growth, career, money, family, health, travel, adventures, and your ambitions.
“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.”
― Gloria Steinem
Focus and be specific.
When writing the things you want be specific about what it is. Do not just put “I want to lose weight.” It is more beneficial if you put something like “I want to lose 10lbs in by June.” This will allow you to set a time line and create a goal you can actually act on.
Fearless ambition is key. Be BOLD. Think big as well as small.
Do not limit yourself to things that you think you definitely can achieve. The world is your oyster. Reach out and grab it what you want. Dream a little. Write out things that may be a challenge, that you have no idea of how you can achieve, and may be so big you don’t know where to start. These bold declarations are the things that will really allow yourself to see the power in yourself and your determination.
Build your board.
Gather your ideas, dreams, and desires, post-its, photos, trinkets, and all other inspirations and place them on your board. Arrange them. Re-arrange them. Get creative and make a board that is uniquely your own.
Place it where you can see it regularly.
Place your board in a prominent place where you’ll be able to see it often and can focus on it. The key to creating this board is not just to write down your desires, but to keep those things in your mind as you continue to work towards them.
All talk and no action is worthless
“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.” —Pablo Picasso
Now is the fun part. Do something. Take little step. Turn those steps in to great strides. Work backwards and create a do-able action plan. Look at your vision board and create creative ways that you can make those desires a reality.
And finally, do easy on yourself if you do not meet all of your goals within the time frames you’ve set. Keep trying and be relentless as we all are worth the things we desire, it’s just a matter of going out there and getting it. And I believe without a doubt that you can do great things.
“All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible.” —Orison Swett Marden
