Curious of how to turn your vision into reality? I really encourage you to create a vision board to gain clarity and be super inspired.
My Vision Board:
I have wanted to make a vision board ever since my hairdresser told me about it a couple years ago. If you read my blog post, I wrote about how I wanted to create a vision board. Well, I did it. A photo of the final product is shown below. The process was really easy; you start with a blank canvas. Then, I found photographs and quotes in magazines that inspired me and I cut them out. The next step was to arrange the images into a collage on the canvas. As I have a crafty side, I thought this was a really cool way to display my goals for the next ten years.
Let me explain my goals to you (or as I say on board dreams):
Most of all, since I just graduated I want to keep dreaming and pursue my passion. I want my life to be one big adventure.
I want to be a leader through empowering students, athletes, and indivduals to go after their dreams, know that they have a community there to support them and to not give up despite all the unfortunate circumstances that will likely arise in their lives.
I want to start my career that combines education and sport.
I need to live near the ocean/lake/river. The water is my source of strength.
I want to learn how to play the guitar, be a better photographer, become a surfer, and write for a magazine. :)
I want to go travel more with my friends: as seeing new places and faces makes me happy.
Most importantly, I need to remember to never stop smiling or to stop being myself. :) So that is what vision board consists of.
This is how I created my vision board but you can also use Pinterest to gather quotes and images that inspire you. Or, you can be more specific and write out your goals as I did and created a Life List.
My Life List:
The process of writing out my specific goals gave me order, less clutter, and regained focus in my life. They are all things that I have been saying I would like to do for a long time and will help me achieve my goal of empowering others through being my authentic self. Here is the list I created in 2012 – but it has been updated since then.
If you were to create a lifelist, what would you write on there? Have you created one already, I’d love to see it. Need help or have questions about the process – feel free to ask in the comment section below.
