Take A Mini Mind Vacation
If lately you’ve been feeling unmotivated, unclear of what’s next, or just plain unhappy then take a mini mind vacation and start reinventing yourself by starting with what’s called your vision board.
See sometimes I get stuck in a rut and find myself a little disgruntled with the same day in and day out monotony. So what I decided to do to get my mind back to that focused, motivated and happy guy is create my vision board.
I mean we all have hopes, dreams and wishes. But do you have a defined vision of what you want in life? Now just thinking about it is not sufficient enough and you need to do more. It needs to be put down on paper and see it on the physical so that it can be manifested into a reality. It doesn’t matter where you are now, but take some time and write down a list of things you would like to have or achieve.
Now it’s time to create your vision board. Follow these fun and easy to do steps…
My motivational friend michele T came up with these steps
The Five Steps of Creating a Vision Board:
Step 1: Go through your magazines, Google images and tear or print the images from them. No gluing yet! Just let yourself have lots of fun looking through magazines and pulling out pictures or words or headlines that strike you and relate to your vision. Have fun with it. Make a big pile of images and phrases and words.
Step 2: Go through the images and begin to lay your favorites on the board. Eliminate any images that no longer feel right. This step is where your intuition comes in. As you lay the pictures on the board, you’ll get a sense how the board should be laid out. For instance, you might assign a theme to each corner of the board. Health, Career, Spirituality, Relationships, for instance. Or it may just be that the images want to go all over the place. Or you might want to fold the board into a book that tells a story. At my retreats, I’ve seen women come up with wildly creative ways to present a vision board.
Step 3: Glue or tack everything onto the board. Add writing if you want. You can paint on it, or write words with markers.
Step 4: (optional, but powerful) Leave space in the very center of the vision board for a fantastic photo of yourself where you look radiant and happy. Paste yourself in the center of your board.
Step 5: Hang your vision board in a place where you will see it often.

This vision board is a powerful thing and every super successful person has done this in some shape or form.
