I love watching The Secret or even just playing it while I work to keep me motivated and this DVD really highlights how to visualize, the powers of The Law of Attraction and how to use these powers in your every day life to do, have and be more than you ever hoped for. It also makes a great gift for anyone you know and love that is feeling unworthy or depressed about how their life is proceeding. Share it at work to motivate and inspire co workers and the team spirit.

I can highly recommend (and DO) and suggest it for everyone that needs a more positive attitude in life and to reach your goals!

"A vision board can put all your goals and plans in front of you and help guide the work you do so that you can realize all that you dream of"

A Vision Board is a fun craft project!

I first used a vision board years ago when I was working for my direct selling business. Some people call these thought boards or dream boards too. My director had given me a homework task of creating a board with images of what I wanted to achieve with my new business in the first year. I had never made a vision board before but, do love crafts so I decided it would at least be a fun way to spend an afternoon. It was also a better task than cold calling or prospecting so I was up for it! I'll share the results of creating that first board at the end of this lens. Sadly, I didn't save that first vision board but, suggest that you do to remind you of all that you can achieve when you put your mind to it.

Would you like help with how to get motivated? A vision board can put all your goals and plans in front of you and help guide the work you do so that you can realize all that you dream of. Dream Big - use a vision board to help you get where you want to be!

These are the steps I took to create a simple vision board and you can do it too in one quick afteroon.

Start with the basics to make your vision board

How to Make a Dream Board, Wish Board, Goal Board, Vision Board....

You'll need to use your thinking cap and determine what it is that you want. Be specific, get creative, the sky is the limit! Think of it as your dream board that will help you achieve anything you want as I've shown in this vision board sample to the right.

Do you want to travel, engage in sports and leisure activities, more money, a new job, new home, a vacation home, a boat, motorcycle, new car, no debt? Do you want an at work motivation vision board for the staff? Use a vision board at home or work to help motivate you, your family or your staff or kids to work towards a goal. Find words and images to describe these things you want and use those as the starting point of your vision board. Use a vision board at work to improve your attitude and set you on the right path making the right choices that will lead to your success.

USE THIS GUIDE TO MAKE A VISION BOARD:

Get a foam board to mount your pictures, words. I like a foam board instead of a bulletin board simply because I want to use the entire space all the way to the edges. A bulletin board also works if you want that look, I simply prefer the foam board. A foam board is also lighter so that if you want to mount it on the wall it's easy to do. That part is purely up to you and won't affect how successful your vision board is! Buy foam boards in bulk if you'll want do make one for specific areas of your life or if you want to do this as a family project, work project or even school or community event. Get others involved and share the idea with them to assist others in learning how to visualize their success.

You'll find some nice words and pictures to use for a vision board when you use photographs, images out of magazines, check your junk mail, from the computer, postcards from past travel experiences or old books (make copies instead of ruining books) to get started adding pictures of things you want to attain. - these are your visions.

Lay out all your photos and words on your board the way you'd like them to appear before glueing them down. You may want to rearrange it in a certain order or without any order at all. Play around with your pictures to determine what looks best to you. Use your vision board pictures for success - the more you look at it, study it, visualize it - success will follow as you'll work to achieve your goals.

The vision board sample shown to help you get the idea of what you can do with yours.

Use a bulletin board as another option for mounting your visions - This is the best choice if you want a frame around your vision board!

Keep your Vision Board personalized

There are no right or wrong photos, images or words to add to your vision board. It's yours and yours alone to look at daily, help you stay on track to reach your goals, help you to do tasks that will lead you to the prize and you can update it as you please.

You may want to leave some extra space on your vision board so that you can add more photos or words later on. Build it as a collage of overlapping images or a more organized grouping. It's up to you on how you want your own vision board to look.

You can also make smaller vision boards that you can keep in your kitchen or office, car back seat or trunk area if you make appointments and need helpful reminders of why you're doing the work that you're doing, no matter what kind of work that is.

How to use a vision board is up to you but, I'd recommend keeping it near your work space, in your office, your kitchen, your bedroom or wherever you can see it daily as a reminder of what you need to do for the day to reach your goals. Be on purpose and take it one step at a time and you will achieve success faster by staying focused on the prize!

You can also help someone else make their own vision/goal board with these ideas and maybe have a craft day with your friends or co workers so that everyone can have a personal vision board. This could be a great way to motivate team members, increase sales or business and learn more about those you work with every day. Pass it on with the bookmark feature below!

Update your vision board as your goals change or just create a new one. They're fun to make!

Be all that you can be, achieve all that you were meant to and utilize your vision board daily!

There are no rules on what to put on your vision board - Use images of a home, job, travel, love, kids, happiness, sunsets, sports or anything else you want. Your actions will be geared to achieving success!

My first vision board helped me to stay on focus to reach my goals with my skin care company with my skin care company and I was able to elevate two levels within my first 6 months, earn a free trip to Maui with my company within the first year and ended up moving to a new home with a lake view. Vision boards work if you do! If you have any experience with using a vision board, please share it here.

Disclaimer

Just wanted to add that just because you create a vision board doesn't guarantee that you will achieve your goals and dreams. It still takes hard work and a focus on the end result so that you do the necessary tasks. Best wishes on all your dreams and goals, may they all come true one at a time!

      The most important thing is to keep adding to them and changing the images. Otherwise, I find that the board becomes invisible. I no longer see it. But if I'm constantly updating and changing the images, it stays fresh and continues to motivate and inspire.
