Create and share your vision board!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Having a visual representation of what you're aiming for and what's really important to you in your life can be a powerful tool to help you get there :yes:

Visualising it gives you something to aspire to, something to motivate you.

Why not follow the instructions below and have a go at creating your own vision board and share a photo of it here? As we approach the end of 2015 you might like to use it to think about what you'd like to achieve next year or you might like to focus on longer term goals.

Attachment not found.

Here's how to do it (you'll need about an hour with some paper, pens, magazines and glue)

Step 1
Settle down in a quiet place with no interruptions. Have a think about some of the following questions:

If there were no obstacles at all, what would I love to achieve in the next 1, 3, 5, 10 years?
What would I love to be involved with?
What is my ideal scenario?
Where will I be living?
What job will I be doing?

Step 2
Get creative! Get yourself some paper, pens, glue, magazines and start cutting out words or images that match your goals and start sticking them to a large piece of paper or card or on a pin board.

Step 3
Once you're done, think about where you'll keep your board. You might take a photo of it and make it your screensaver, print it out and fold it up in your diary or bedside drawer, put it up on your bedroom wall - whatever works for you to keep it alive and in your mind.

Step 4
Share it here and help inspire others and tell us what it was like to do it!

It's down to you to achieve these things, they are unlikely to just happen one day or fall into your lap and some will be easier than others but finding our focus and motivation can help you start making decisions to help you get there rather than hold you back.

Good luck! Can't wait to see your creations :hyper:

    I really wanted to do this but I don't really have any magazines or anything around so I've done an online version! Not very creative but I think it sums up my vision :)

    I agree that visualising and positive thinking are real motivators :yes:

    Here is my vision board. I actually really enjoyed creating it, and it has given me something to focus on for the future. :heart:

    Any more vision boards for 2016?! Could be a nice thing to do to reflect on the year and what you want from the year ahead :yes:

    I am going to add my vision board as my screen saver I think that's a brilliant idea. I wanted to print it off but don't have a printer. So may have to settle for my screen saver. :heart:
