Vision Board How To
Most of us have numerous aspects of our lives that we'd like to improve. Remember that focus is the key, and for that reason we don't recommend an "everything" board. It's certainly fine to have several vision boards at once. We encourage that! Just be sure that you create each board with a specific intent.
Below we offer several broad categories that we hope will help you choose a direction. For each board you wish to create, first select the general area of your life in which you would most like to see improvement, and then narrow it down from there.
Vision Board How To: Topic Ideas
Finances — If you have the limiting belief that it is somehow "selfish" or "greedy" to want more money in your life, consider this bit of wisdom from T. Harv Eker's "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind" (paraphrasing): The first best thing you can do for poor people is to not be one.
I couldn't agree more, because it's just common sense. If you have nothing yourself, you have nothing to give others. So many of us have a fear that money will somehow change us, but in fact, money can only magnify who we really are. If you are a greedy, selfish person, doubtless you will be the same with little or lots of money. However, for anyone with a giving heart, the greatest reward of having more money is having the ability to give more to others.
Relationships — This doesn't only include a current or hoped-for significant other. Consider all the other relationships in your life with ... spouse, family, friends, co-workers, enemies, your community, society at large, and what about your relationship with yourself? How do you see yourself? What do you think of yourself? How's your self-esteem level?
Mental and Emotional Well-being — Are you living up to your potential, both mentally and emotionally? Are you putting your mind to its best and fullest use every day? Or have your limiting beliefs become an excuse to let your brain get lazy?
Emotions can often determine whether we act out of inspiration or desperation. If fear and doubt are controlling your decisions, and thereby controlling your life direction, create a vision board that will serve as a constant reminder of who you are -- not where you have been but where you intend to be.
Physical Health — Improving this area of your life might include anything from working toward healthier eating habits to discovering ways to exercise that you enjoy. Even learning to play and have fun every day can have a positive impact on your physical health -- it's a proven fact that laughter really is great medicine!
Spirituality — Mark Twain said, "The secret to success in life is to make your vocation your vacation." What is your passion, your purpose in life? Create a vision board that will help you stay focused as you pursue your goal.
Remember that no matter what your goal, you don't have to work out all the details before you start, and you shouldn't try. Create a vision board showing what you will be, do, or have once your goal is achieved. Focus on your intent, believe in yourself, and allow it to be. Most important of all, relish the joy of seeing your life begin to improve day by day.
