When you start planning, things come true. Sometimes things become even better than your vision board or your vision journal. Here is a step by step guide to creating a vision board or journal!
STEP 1: Write down your goals, do the vision journal from the 90-day planner.
You want your vision board to be built around your goals, so the first step is to set those goals. Our free 90-day planner has you do this on page 4. You need to know the answers to these questions: What do you want to create in the future? What words and phrases represent your goal after you have achieved it? Why do you want to reach this goal? When you imagine completing your goal what does your life look like?
STEP 2: Decide on the type of vision board you want to create and make it.
There is more than one type of vision board. Most people think about cutting out pictures and putting them on a board, which is totally one type of vision board. Get a bunch of magazines and cut out words and pictures that represent where you want to be. You can also create a journal-notebook and cut things out index cards. Or you can use a secret Pinterest board.
STEP 3: Look at it morning and night and all the time. Carry it with you.
Make it a habit to look at this. It's important because when you are out there pursuing opportunities and when you are talking to people about who you are and what you want to create in you life. The more clear you are about this, the easier it's going to be for the right people to find you. Use your vision board to make decisions.
Ask yourself, does this job, this opportunity, this client or whatever it looks like, fit on my vision board? Because if it doesn't, then that's probably a good indication that it's going to take you in a direction other than the direction that you really want to go. This will help you decide what activities you need to say no to in your life.
