Create a Vision Board to Reach Your Goals – Part 1

I’m writing a series of posts on Vision Boarding and will also hold a webinar next week about it. Details to come.

imageI was reminded today that my idea of a good vision board is not what others think it is. Instead of a piece of paper with some magazine scraps pasted on it, I invite you to go deeper into what your vision board could be. Think about how vision boards should be hung on the wall of your home or office. It should be something that not only you can see every day but also what your friends, family and clients can see every day.

Why hang it on the wall where every one can see it? Well, first of all you will keep your focus by seeing your vision, your desires and your goals in your face all the time. By hanging it where others can see it, you’re declaring to the Universe that you own all of those desires and you’re inviting those in your life to help you own them. Discussions can happen, plans can be made & achievements can be celebrated. Have you ever denied yourself a desire because you were worried what someone else might think about it?

  • Did you say once “Oh I love these Jimmy Choos” only to have your husband scoff and say “$400 for a pair of shoes you can only wear a few times a year?”
  • Did you tell your friend you travelled first class to Europe and they said “Well, must be nice. You’re obviously in a different class than I am”
  • Did your mom look shocked when you told her you bought a new car and your monthly payments are $500 a month?

These reactions are a part of their story and their judgment is their own and quite frankly it really is none of your business. Your business is declaring that first class tickets will be yours whenever you travel and by putting that on your vision board, as well as the actions you are committing too – allows your friends and family to be involved in your vision. They might not get it at first, but trust me, as we dive deeper into Vision Boards in my upcoming posts and webinars – they will begin to see it.

So go scope out where you’re going to be hanging your vision board. That’s going to determine the size you can start your canvas with. We’ll talk canvases and your base of your vision board in the next post. Stay tuned.
