Create the life you want in 2023 using a vision board to keep you focused on your desired destination. A vision board helps to give a clear direction of where you want to go in several areas of your life. I started using them 2 years ago and it has been a complete game changer for me. My vision board helps me to keep my goals at the top of my mind so I’m making constant progress on them. It doesn’t matter what is going on around you, the vision board will keep you focused on YOUR VISION and YOUR GOALS. A vision board is simply a collection of images arranged in a way to help you work towards your goals.
Outlined below are 4 steps to help you create your own vision board for 2023. The first step is to picture the life you want.
If you can see it, you can be it!
What does your best-self look like? Is there a particular career goal you want to achieve? Do you have a vision of the financial position you want to achieve? In most situations, your career and finances go hand in hand. Building your career usually improves your financial position. Also look to other areas of your life such as health, relationships, travel aspirations, home, family etc. Examine all areas to see where you want to make changes and try something new. Kick-start your 2023 by creating a vision of the life you want.
What goals will help you reach your vision for 2023 and live the life you want? The dreams you are picturing will not be accomplished without setting goals to help you achieve them. When setting your goals, its important to ensure they are SMART goals. Look to my previous post on how to set SMART goals.
What actions do you need to take to help you achieve your goals? For each of your goals, set out the actions required for you to reach it.
The final step is to create the actual vision board. Gather images that represent the vision of the future you want. You can create the vision board manually using pictures cut out from magazines or newspapers and glue them to the board. You can also create it electronically using images from the web and copy them into a digital version of a vision board. Do what works for you, but the end goal is to have a visual representation of the future you want. If you do create the vision board electronically, ensure you print out a hard copy. When the vision board is complete, put it in a position which ensures you see it daily. The back of your bedroom door or inside a wardrobe door you open daily, can be a good place to position it. You’ll get a daily reminder of your dreams, and this will serve to motivate and inspire you. These locations are also personal to you. This is important, as the vision board is a representation of your personal dreams and aspirations.
Make sure to take a few moments out each day to contemplate the vision board you created. This will keep you focused and motivate you to succeed with your goals. I have created some blank templates of vision boards to help you get started and provided an idea of a completed vision board HERE for you to get some inspiration from.
