Do you know someone who has achieved everything in his life and is still working to accomplish something bigger? Surprisingly we all know someone like that! The primary question that comes to our mind is how we can enhance our efficiency and attain our goals as others did. The answer to this is yes – we can also achieve whatever we desire with the help of a vision board.
But what if you don’t have a vision and are struggling to know where you want to go and what you want from your life? In such cases, putting your efforts on the right path becomes hard. Without a proper vision, you cannot seek the necessary resources and support.
“How to get a clear vision?” is a mesmerizing topic to discuss later. For now, let’s get back to how we can create a vision board.
You might have heard the word manifestation earlier also, either in public interactions or group discussions. Manifestation is the idea of attracting your dream vision into your life only by thinking about it. It’s not magic! Although we all know nothing happens overnight, and to achieve success with manifestation, you must make your mind believe that it will become a reality one day. In the real world, dreams don’t get fulfilled on their own. It only happens by realizing your potential.
Vision Manifest is a great tool to help you get a focused vision. But what is a vision board exactly, and do they work in real life?
What is a vision board?
In simple words, a vision board is a visual representation of the goal you’re trying to accomplish. Usually, these are poster-sized visuals representing the images and texts that help you achieve your goal.
Vision boards are highly recommended to be used as a manifest of your personal or professional vision statement. For example, if you have a long-term goal, like achieving something in the next five years, you can use a vision board to manifest your five-year plan or make a yearly board.
Remember, a vision board relates to your life direction, and there are no rules for making a vision manifest because it is only created exclusively for you to realize your dreams and goals on a day-to-day basis.
Many people use vision boards and place them where they are easily noticed. For example, some people hang it on their bedroom wall so they can see it frequently, while others paste it on a dressing/ bathroom mirror to read it whenever they stand in front of it.
Things you should include in a vision board
Regarding the things to be included in a vision board, remember that sky’s the limit. But still, to start with, you can add some pictures that inspire you and match your values.
Vision boards also contain motivational/provocative quotes. The extracts can be printed, handwritten, drawn in calligraphy, etc.
These boards can also contain nostalgic values that remind you of any achievement you accomplished in the past.
There is no limit when discussing inclusions in this vision manifest. The only important thing we must consider is whether this manifest will help us in our mission or not.
Does this hard work give us the result?
Vision Boards are fruitful because they are the visual indications of your intent. These boards usually give shape to your thoughts and actions. This activity is perfect for people who need to visualize everything. They find it easy to set goals, write them down, and envisage what they want.
However, we all know that we can’t accomplish our goal just by thinking, writing, or repeating it. You can’t expect it to magically make things into reality because it is just a visual format of your mindset. So, don’t sit back! Instead, work harder and get involved in your mission.
Creating your Vision Manifestation
Creating a Vision Board is enjoyable as it is not only your future visual representation but an art & craft project too. Let’s create it together step by step:
- Collect necessary stuff
- Make a clear picture of your goal
- Gather objects and images indicating your vision
- Arrange all the things creatively
- Find a space to place it where you will see it regularly
Let’s elaborate on each step.
1. Collect necessary stuff
Most people make physical vision boards out of wire, magnetic, poster, cork, and whiteboards. Remember, it is not necessary to spend money on a new one. You can also use a piece of cardboard from a box you have at your home. The next thing you’ll need is images. You may find it from many sources such as postcards, old photographs, catalogs or magazines or you can search images online and get their printout.
After getting all this ready, look for a perfect background as per your theme and purchase pins and clips to hold your images on board. Finally, use scissors to cut out the photos.
Rest, you’ll need a marker, paint, pen, stickers and other craft items to decorate your board. How you use these materials is totally up to you. Use them as much as you can!
2. Make a clear picture of your goal
Before starting the craft work:
- Take some extra time to rethink and clearly understand what you aim for from this vision board.
- During this period, don’t distract yourself by talking to a family member or watching television in the background.
- Remember that this is central to creating your vision board, so kindly be attentive this time.
3. Gather objects and images indicating your vision
Now is the time to search for the right images that indicate your inspiration. Be careful while choosing images, and examine the entire image properly. Along with pictures, you may also search for inspirational quotes matching your images. Doing this will give your board next-level grace.
4. Arrange all the stuff creatively
Are you feeling excited as it’s time to arrange your board? Do this step with fun; take your time because you are making this layout to get inspired. You may observe different designs through online searches. You don’t have to match anybody’s style; use it just for reference.
Once you are done with the research, arrange everything in a place, along with your binding stuff. Remember that there is no need to hasten up. Instead, try different arrangements one by one. For example, if you are using clips or pins, it will be easier to change the design as compared to the tapes and glues, wherein the design cannot be readily transformed.
5. Find a space where you will see it regularly
Hats off! Your goal of creating a vision board is accomplished. Now it is the time to look for a place where you can see it more often to maintain your motivation and focus.
Try some familiar places like an empty wall in your room, or on the mirror, fridge in your kitchen area, etc. These places in the home are pretty accessible for keeping/hanging vision boards.
Common aspirations for your vision board
Now we all know how to create a vision board from scratch. But it might get arduous to start when you don’t have manifestation ideas to inspire. So let’s discuss some inspirational ideas.
1. Career Aspirations
In this, you can use images representing financial affluence or take them from trade & business magazines. Trading tools can also be used.
2. Personal Care
In this, workout inspiration, self-reliance, aspiring quotes, any achievement in the past etc., can be used.
Include images of your dream destination, happy moments in past journeys, and travel quotes.
How to use your vision manifest?
Commit to viewing your vision board at least once daily for a minimum of 5 minutes. Focus on studying its content and observe each image. Don’t just read the inspirational quotes silently but say them aloud. Doing this on a daily note will help you stay focused towards your goals.
Making a vision board is a good start for finding inspiration and motivating yourself. But one cannot say if creating a vision manifest will cause destiny to deliver what you want.
Remember, your dream board will only provide the necessary points to focus and visualize your aim, but you will find this tool helpful in case of making a tough decision. Thus, achieving your aim is challenging, but it becomes easier once you have the proper support. So, what are you waiting for? Create a vision board today and turn your dreams into reality!
