Some of you who have been following me on Twitter would have noticed that I’ve been chanting the Laws of Attraction. No, I haven’t turned into a New Age preist, I’ve basically started working on my vision board. The concept of the vision board (also known as a goal board, goal map, or treasure map) has been around for generations, but it’s gained a renewed interest and popularity after success expert John Assaraf related his story of using vision boards to achieve his dreams in the best-selling DVD documentary The Secret. Basically what it is, it’s a board with all the things you want, who you want to be, and things you’d like to happen to you.
What you will need to create your own Vision Board:
1) A collection of magazines. Get as many as you can so you have a variety of images and favorite quotes.
3) Ruler and Pencil
4) Canvas/bristel board to glue your images onto.
5) A Vision –
What I’m finding interest about working on my own board is how much I don’t know about what I want. I always thought I had an idea of my hopes and dreams but when I started this project I found myself limited. Some things were easy to spot out, Adoption = pictures of children, or, books to represent my dreams of becoming a published writer. But there are other things I want as well like Travelling, a beauitful home, nice clothes and amazing tasting food. As I flipped through the magazines I realized that life is long and there’s so much I want from it. There are also things I thought I wanted but when I found pictures of them, I decided that they weren’t important enough to put on my vision board.
Next week I’ll be done my vision board and I will post pictures of it on my blog. In the mean time, check out my video. If you have worked on a vision board please feel free to post a comment about your experience and what you learned. It would be awesome hearing from you.
