Happy New Year! I took a couple of weeks off but I am excited kick off 2019 by sharing one of my fave YouTube vidoes from years past! In this video I interview with my friend Riche Holmes Grant the host of the host of YouTube show The Riche Life and founder of Bambiniware. Riche shares why vision boards are so important, the amazing dreams she has achieved as a result of the vision board exercise, and how you can create your own vision board.
Take the time to do it – it is fun, rewarding, and I promise it will help you to carve out your goals for an effective, happy, and productive 2019! Check out the video for everything you need to get started! And if you are in the DC metro, join me on Friday, January 18th from 11-1 for our in person vision board workshop with Riche! Click here for more info! And if you are not in DC and able to join us at the meetup, below this video you will find a couple more of Riche’s tips to help you get started!
- Poster board or foam board (preferred)
- Old magazines (but ones that actually interest you)
- Glue stick
Do it when the time is right for you. I love making my vision board in December in anticipation of the feeling of renewal that comes with the arrival of a new year. Others like making vision boards on their birthdays for the same reason. There’s really no right or wrong time, so long as you make your vision board when you are really ready to put in the work to design and pursue the life of your dreams.
There’s strength in numbers. Last year, I hosted my first vision board party for a small group of friends. It was such a powerful experience to share our individual goals out loud (some for the first time) and to pledge our collective support to help each woman reach hers. Think about who’s in your support circle and consider hosting your own vision board party for everyone.
Set the mood. Good food, wine, music, candles…whatever you love, make it a part of your vision board experience too.
1. Before you start, take an honest look at where you are right now in the areas of your life that are most important to you (e.g., personal growth, health/wellness, spirituality, family/friends, love, career, etc.). On a level of 1-10, how happy are you in each area? What do you want that area of you life to look at its optimal level?
2. Cut out images, phrases, words and symbols that embody what you want your ideal life to look like in the areas that you identified above. Without fail, every time I do a vision board, I find exactly what I’m looking for because it’s been looking for me too.
3. Tell a story. Once you find what you want to put on your vision board, take time to organize it in a way that tells a story, your story of how everything on the board fits together to create your ideal life.
