In my previous post, I wrote about finding yourself and creating a vision board. You can click the link below to follow up.
Today`s post is an overview on how you can achieve this. A sample copy of a vision board created on CANVA can be seen in the last slide above… Here are the three great ways of creating a vision board
- Physical Copy; This is by the use of a card board/drawing board… here, dream pictures are printed and pasted according to how you want it to look like. this can go up on a wall in your room, preferably close to the door. YES, the door is the best place where your vison board is most visible.
- Video Version; This is not very common, but it is a valid way of putting words and pictures into short clips, for a better focus, you can include an inspirational quote, motivational spoken words / Music can be playing in the background. You can decide a good moment to watch and listen as a reminder for your set target… its not enough to make a video, the real essence is finding time to listen… First thing in the morning and before you go to bed are both great times of the day for self reflection.
- Digital Vision Board; This is basically a collage of pictures, words and call to action made in a picture or pdf format… I find it handy because having it in my smartphone as a wall paper helps. Now this can be created with ease using phone Apps available to you. A good example is the CANVA app. Others include VISUAL APP, IWISH,PICMONKEY E.T.C
STEPS TO CONSIDER
- Have goals and prioritize… Without goals, there will be nothing to work on.
- Create a basic structure for your vision board. ( the What, Why, How and When)
- Write goals and ideas on a paper or digital sticky note
- Find images and words/captions that best suits these goals of yours
- Sort and arrange the images and words according to its relative importance
- Create your Vision board
- Remember that editing and updating your vision board is a strong growth strategy.
Creating a Vision board keeps you grounded in achieving your target goals.
