DIY Vision Board and How It Helps Your Reach Your Goals

8:30 AM Jessica 0 Comments

     We all have goals, dreams and visions of what we want to accomplish in our life.  But many of us let our dreams get lost when life gets crazy and we are focusing on too many things.  Today is the day we need to change that so we can catch our old dreams, create new ones and make our dreams a reality.  We need to work together and inspire each other as we all work towards reaching our goals and go from being a dreamer to doer.

     Over the past few weeks we have been working together to achieve our dreams.  If you’ve missed the past few posts check out How to Not Let Your Dreams Get Lost in the Clouds HERE.  How to Live Your Dreams Smart HERE, and 10 Tips to Better Time Management HERE so you can continue on our journey from being a dreamer to doer.

     Zig Ziglar once said, “You can’t hit a target you cannot see, and you cannot see a target you do not have.”  So first we need to “have our target” or goals.  What dreams do you have for your future?  What smaller goals do you have in place to accomplish these dreams?  If you need help breaking down your dreams into goals HERE is a link that can help you. 

     Next we need to “see our target”.  Instead of making a list (which is great too!) I decided to create a vision board.  It helps me be able to see exactly what I want to accomplish (in a fun and personal way).  So here is step by step guide how I created mine:

Step 1: Gather Supplies

  • Piece of paper
  • Old magazine (any kind)
  • Scissors
  • Tape or Glue

Step 2:  Cut Out Pictures From Any Magazine
Try to find pictures or headings that make you think of your goals.  I went through the entire “Good Housekeeping” magazine and I was very surprised how many pictures I found!  Try to cut them all out (you can sort them out when you are all done).

Step 3: Sort Through All The Pictures
I found tons of pictures and decided to throw out a few that I didn’t need.  If you don’t have enough, try going through a new magazine.  You can also print things off the internet if you want to include something specific.

Step 4: Tape It All Together

Step 5: Hang Up Your Vision Board
Try to find a place you will see many times a day; bathroom mirror, fridge, your desk, or you could even take a picture of it and make it your home screen on your phone.  Every time you see your vision board, you will have another time to think about your goals throughout the day. 

My End Result

I would love to hear and learn from you.  So dreamers, what are your dreams?  Do you think creating a vision board help you think about your goals and inspire you to act on them?  How are you living your dreams right now?
