I am excited to share my latest video with you! I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about vision boards but one of the most important things I’ve learned in 2016 is that positivity, goals, and vision are essential and when you embrace all three, good things tend to happen! So this is the first year that I created my own vision board and I am so proud of my final masterpiece and can already feel the effects that putting pen to paper and visualizing every day has had on my life (you can see a glimpse of my board in this picture). I wouldn’t have had the courage to do it, if it wasn’t for my friend Riche Holmes Grant the founder of Bambiniware. Riche has been doing vision boards for years and it is remarkable the goals that she puts on her boards and how she actually makes them a reality. You will hear all about it in our video. Riche will also walk you through the step by step on how to create your own vision board of your ideal life. 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 2017! Check out the video for everything you need to get started! Would love to hear from you if you take these tips and actually create a board! And below this video you will find a couple of Riche’s tips and a link to her site for more details!
- 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.
