Which aspect of your life do you want to improve? Use these vision board topic ideas to get focused and get started!
Most of us have numerous aspects of our lives that we’d like to improve, and it’s certainly okay to work on more than one at a time. Below are several broad categories of vision board topic ideas to 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.
Tip: One important key to visualization techniques is focus, and for that reason we don’t usually recommend an “everything” board. For best results, create each of your vision boards with specific intent so that you can include a full range of details and emotions.
An exception to this is when you don’t yet have clarity. In that case be sure to read “Clarity, On the Other Hand”.
One of THE most popular topics for vision boards is weight loss. If slimming down is important to you, a vision board can be very effective by helping you stay focused on the positive.
Let’s face it, most of us consider any diet or exercise regime as pure torture because it’s all about sacrifice and suffering. In fact, it’s not about what you’re going to do TO yourself but FOR yourself.
Your vision board can help you start seeing that slimmer, healthier you that you are becoming … and start believing that yes, you really can do it! Be sure to see our Weight Loss Affirmations for some empowering positive statements you can add to your board.
Needless to say, physical health isn’t always and only about losing weight. Consider other topics such as:
- developing healthier eating habits
- increasing energy level
- discovering ways to exercise that are fun
- working on muscle tone or strength building
- improving balance or flexibility
Whatever you decide to pursue, attitude always makes a difference. Unfortunately it’s easier to dwell on what’s wrong with us than what’s right with us, and we can feel defeated before we even begin. Instead, make a vision board that will help you stay focused on that positive outcome that you desire.
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. When fear and doubt control your decisions, they control your life direction, but visualization can help.
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.
One universal human desire is to be happy, and that’s an excellent topic for a vision board because. It’s been said that most people don’t get what they want because they don’t know what they want. Creating a vision board will make you think about what happiness means to you. What, exactly, does your happy life look like?
Most of us have a desire for more money in our lives. Most of us also have the limiting belief that wanting more money is somehow “selfish” or “greedy”. If that sounds familiar, consider this bit of wisdom from T. Harv Eker’s “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” (paraphrasing):
Now isn’t that just plain 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.
What matters here is to dig down to why you want to improve your financial situation. How will your life be different or better when you have more money? Make a vision board to focus on what this additional money will enable you to be or to do or to have.
Who doesn’t need more love in life? You might be thinking of a current or a hoped-for significant other, but consider all the other relationships in your life with your …
- spouse or romantic partner
- family members who live with you
- extended family
- co-workers, bosses, employees
This topic could even expand to your community or society at large. Going to the other extreme, what about your relationship with yourself? How do you see yourself? What do you think of yourself? How’s your self-esteem level?
A vision board can be about existing relationships you want to improve or new relationships you want to attract. Imagine what your life will look like when those new – or newly evolved – relationships manifest, and make a vision board to keep you focused on that ideal.
Vision Boards for Business
The Disney empire as we know it today did not come into being because somebody made a to-do list. Long before any action steps were taken, and long before any goals were set, the original amusement park was a vision in the mind of Walt Disney.
Whether you dream on grand scales or small, that dream is the heart of your business. Maybe you already use goal boards, and that’s great except that those serve an entirely different purpose. A goal board is all about the “how” and the details of getting things done step by step. Sometimes it’s easy to get so buried in all those details that you lose site of the big picture.
As with personal dream boards, a vision board used in business settings helps define and clarify your intentions. That alone can go a long way toward making employees feel more inspired and motivated. Drawing your team together with a shared mindset helps everyone envision a clear picture of where you intend to be.
Using such a visualization tool will also help keep everyone focused on that big picture, which can be very helpful on days when tedious work can be frustrating. Not that there will never be setbacks or challenges, but you have a visual reminder to help you maintain focus on your direction and destination. Every small task is important not just so you can check it off your list but because it’s an important part of something much bigger. Make a vision board to get clarity, stay focused, and turn the dream you have for your business into a reality.
As you can imagine, the list of possible vision board topic ideas is endless, and it’s as varied as all the wonderfully different individuals in the world. No matter what aspect of your life you want to improve, 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 want to be or do or have. 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 get better and better day by day!
