We are 12 days into 2017, and how many of you have already broken your new years resolutions? I’ve given up on creating resolutions, because I know that I wouldn’t last with them.
Jimmie was kind enough to gift me some Mantra Bands last year that he thought would help inspire me and show me that someone believed in me (blessed, dream – believe – achieve and you are enough just to name a few). As a visual person these simple bracelets mean more to me this year than anything, and I’m taking the vision even further and created a vision board.
If you have never heard of a vision board it’s something you create using pictures, words and quotes. The Bible says, ‘where there is no vision, the people will perish’ Proverbs 29:18 – makes sense, right? Creating visual goals shows your dreams for the future, and helps keep you on task, because you can visually see what you want to achieve.
How to create a vision board:
• Magazines (you want pictures, words and quotes)
• Poster board, corkboard, standard sheet of paper (whatever you want to create your collage on)
• Glue stick or push pins to secure your pictures
Decide what your goals, dreams and ambitions are, then try to find pictures, words or quotes to represent those things. Remember, this board is for you. You don’t have to impress anyone. You can add quotes, pictures, words, embellishments and more.
Once you have found all your images glue or pin them to your board, and keep it in a place where you can look at it often so you’re holding yourself accountable for your visions. I am posting mine here, on Instagram and using it as the background of my phone just as a simple reminder to keep myself focused on what is important to me this year.
