Have you ever wondered why some people are so successful? Perhaps they have the ability to see themselves having it all before it even happens.
This is called a vision board. It’s been used for centuries by those who seek to manifest their dreams into reality through the power of the mind.
The concept is simple: You create a physical representation of what you want your life to look like, which then becomes an instant reminder of how you can achieve your goals. And now that we live in a world where technology and social media reign supreme, there’s never been an easier way to make one!
In this article, I’ll show you how easy it is to create your own vision board using Pinterest—from picking out images that represent what matters most in your life right now (and will matter forever), deciding on a theme color scheme (or not!), creating sections within each board page that reflect different areas of focus or meaning (like money), and finally sharing with friends and family via text message or email so they’re involved too!
Step 1: Choose a Theme
The first step is to choose a theme for your board. The theme will help you decide what to include on the board and, more importantly, how to organize all of that information into something that makes sense and is easy to work with in the future.
It’s important not only to choose a theme that is meaningful and relevant but also one that aligns with your goals and values.
For example, if you want to start running every day after work but currently find it difficult because of being tired from working all day long, then maybe choosing “get fit” as your theme could help inspire ideas for how best to make this happen (like using Pinterest workout videos).
Step 2: Make a List
- Write down your goals. Make a list of the things you want to achieve, both big and small. Be specific about what it is that you want, and include both tangible and intangible goals (like “buy a new car” or “start saving for retirement”).
- Be realistic with yourself. If your goal is to run a marathon in twenty-four hours, then maybe that’s not feasible for where you’re at right now—or perhaps even ever! Think about how much time and effort goes into achieving something like this, as well as what obstacles might be in your way.
- List the obstacles that may stand in your way of achieving each goal. For example, if your goal is to get a new car, then think about how much money you’ll need for down payment and monthly payments, as well as what kind of car you’d like to buy (luxury vehicle or fuel efficient?).
Step 3: Search for Images
You can do this by searching for images that represent the theme you are focusing on. For example, if your theme is “travel” then you would search for travel-related images.
Try to find a variety of images so it doesn’t just look like one thing. You want to use images that have a lot of color because they will attract more attention and be more eye catching when people look at them. Also try to find some images that are not too busy, or else your board will get too cluttered and hard to read!
Finally, remember that when looking for photos online never use small pictures unless they’re meant for close up detail shots (e.g., food). Small pictures will make everything on your board seem like there’s way too much going on at once; which leads me into my next tip…
Step 4: Organize and Delete
For a more visually satisfying board, organize your images by theme, color, size and font.
Organize by Theme: For example, you could organize all the things that are related to traveling together.
Organize by Color: You can also choose different colors for each category (green for fun stuff, blue for work related goals etc.)
Organize By Size: It’s easier to see your progress when everything is neatly listed in front of you! Make sure to use the zoom in feature on your browser if necessary.
Organize By Font Type: Choose one unique font type for each category so that it stands out from the rest of your vision board as well as make it easier to read on large print boards.
Organize By Layout: Put like items next to each other so they flow easily throughout the board when looking or scrolling through its content
Step 5: Add Text
Use the text on your images to describe the image, or to describe your hopes and dreams. Use positive affirmations that speak to you.
For example, if there’s an image of someone doing yoga with a beach in the background you could write: “I am healthy and peaceful.” Or if there’s an image of a woman wearing clothes that reflect her style personality and brand values, then write something like: “I love my style and it shows through everything I do.”
Make sure you use a variety of fonts and colors so it doesn’t look too plain or cluttered.
A vision board is a great way to manifest your hopes and dreams.
A vision board can be a great tool for you to help you achieve your goals. They are easy to make and they can help you focus on what you want in life. This can also help get organized and meet new people.
There are many different types of vision boards. Some people like to make them with pictures, while others prefer words. The main idea is to have something that you can look at every day and remind yourself of what you want in life.
If you want to make a vision board, there are lots of ways to do so. The important thing is that it’s something that’s meaningful to you and will help put your mind at ease about the future. You can choose any theme for this project, whether it be something like travel or fitness.
Just remember: whatever images or words pop into your head should be placed on the board in some way—whether it’s written down next to an image or just pasted onto some scrap paper off-center from where other images might go (thereby creating another dimension).
