Vision boards have become the must-have tool every woman needs in her arsenal. And it's easy to see why. They have been used for decades by successful women, from Oprah to Lilly Singh, to visualise and manifest their goals. While these boards can be made alone, it’s more fun with the girls (and with wine!). Get them together, throw a vision board party and take the first step towards making those dreams come true!
What is a Vision Board?
They are powerful tools that can help you to turn your dreams into reality. As Oprah puts it: ‘You have to have a vision and a plan to execute, so that every step moves you in the direction of that vision’. They aid in self-assessment and let you focus your energy on what truly motivates you. It allows you to manifest your dreams and serves as a daily reminder of what you’re working towards.
Let’s Have a Vision Board Party!
The right mood is *so important* when you are creating a vision board. You have to feel inspired. Drinks are a must (might we suggest some Shine Club Wine?) and so are some feel-good tunes. So get your goal-getters together for an evening of sharing and manifesting your dreams.
How To Create a Vision Board
Vision boards work best when you have specific, achievable goals. What do you want to achieve over the next few months or years? Make a list or you can download a template that helps you to identify goals for all the diﬀerent areas of your life that you want to work towards.
2.Gather Your Supplies
Once you know what you want to achieve, you’ll need to search for a visual representation of that goal. This can be pictures, quotes or words. Vision boards are personal, so the images and words you choose should really resonate with you. You can cut images out of magazines or find some online to print.
3. Create Your Board
There are various ways you can create a vision board, from taping your pictures to the inside of a cupboard to using a poster or pinboard. I made mine by removing the glass from a large photo frame and adding a sheet of cork to it to create a custom pinboard.
4. Assemble Your Vision Board
Time to get creative and put it all together, and there are no rules on how to do it. This means you can glue, pin or paste to your heart’s content as you visualise the life you want. You can organise your vision board in various ways, either placing things randomly or separately into diﬀerent sections. You can have papers overlapping or a more organised pattern – it's all up to you!
5. Display your Dreams
What you do with your vision board once it's finished is really important. A vision board is not meant to be tucked away in a corner. Keep it somewhere you will see it every day. It should be a constant reminder to keep working away at those goals. Place it above your desk or take a picture to use as a screensaver so you can be constantly reminded of what you’re working towards.
Now it’s time to hustle and work towards those goals. You’ve got this, girl!
