A vision board is a collage of images and words that represents your goals and dreams. 

Vision boards are great as they allow you to take your goals and dreams out of your head and allow you to visually see them. 

With a vision board, you not only have the goal in mind, but now you have a picture in your head to motivate you in a different light. 

You may have a goal to lose 5 pounds this month. Great! But with a vision board, you now have a picture of someone in skinny jeans, buttoning their jeans, or just looking great and happy.

And you know what they say, a picture is worth 1000 words!

In addition to having the image now in your head, a vision board also allows you to see your goals on a consistent basis so you are reminded of what you want to achieve (assuming you put the board in place you can see). 

You still need to obviously still put in the work and take action to achieve your goals but this is a great first step in doing the preliminary work that is going to set you up for success. 

Start by thinking about your values. If your goals are not aligned with your values, then achieving those goals won’t really resonate with you, keep you going when it gets tough or make you feel accomplished when you achieve them. 

When starting your vision board, think about the following questions: 

  • What’s important to me? What do I enjoy?
  • What inspires me?
  • What would I do if there were no limits (i.e. time, money, etc.) or no judgment?
  • What kind of life do I want for myself; my health; my family; my career, etc.?
  • Am I putting restraints on my goals/wants or am I dreaming big?
  • What do I have to do for my life to be what I want it to be?
  • Where do I need to go? Where do I want to go?
  • How do I get there?
  • What am I missing in my life?
  • Why do I want this?

Tip: You can write the answers down (I prefer a spreadsheet) so you can really get organized and think about what you want....
