We previously talked about your wants, desires, and wishes for different periods of time. Now, I want to invite you to view wants from a different angle.
A coaching client asked me recently if I would work through a Vision Board process with her. I realized that although I do this for myself at least once a year, I haven’t shared my process. Plus, this is a great way to clarify your wants as we head into the New Year!
You may be wondering…What is a Vision Board and why bother making one?
A Vision Board is a visual representation of your visions, goals, and dreams.
It’s usually a collage of images that are cut out from magazines or pasted from online sources. In my humble opinion, it’s really fun to create!
Being able to “see” what you want teaches your brain to pay attention to what will help make your vision a reality. Visualization is important because it fires up your intrinsic motivation to drive you from the inside out. There are SO MANY stories about people who saw the images on their Vision Board come to fruition in real life.
Your Vision Board can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it. I’ve seen one with only one image and I’ve seen some that look like works of art.
The most important thing is to make whatever is on your board meaningful to YOU. You might see an image of a person swimming and think, “I want to learn to swim this year.” Or, it could be something tangible (a new car) or intangible (shifting your mindset). Put it on your board if the image represents something you want in your future.
To get started, I have included Supercharged Vision Board Prompts to help with the process. This is a practical and magical way of helping yourself lightly wrap up the previous year and envision next year as you create your Vision Board.
It’s my gift to you to kick-start your momentum for the New Year, or any other time of the year!
