Lesson 1: Know Your Why

Your vision journal expresses your WHY – why is your goal important to you, why are you making a change in your life? On difficult days it’s important to remember your why. When you are feeling uninspired or unmotivated, remember your why. Just take a look at your vision journal and you’ll remember why.

Why do you want to reach this goal?

We can set goals all day long. This was a big thing missing for me in the past. I had no idea WHY I wanted my goals.

Lesson 2: Create a Vision Board

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 images 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.

Look at it morning and night and all the time. Carry it with you.

Make it a habit to look at your vision board. It’s important 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 your life. The clearer you are about this, the easier it’s going to be for the right people to find you.

Use it to get clear about your intention. 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 you want to go. This will help you decide what activities you need to say no to in your life.

The one rule of creating a vision board is that everything you put on your board is positive. The purpose of the board is that whatever you focus on increases your chances that it will happen in your life.

Lesson 3: The Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is the name given to the belief that “like attracts like” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results.  If you have ever seen the movie The Secret you have heard of this. I think vision boards are so powerful because you are putting your goals on paper, and when you write down your goals, you are 80% more likely to achieve them.

Vision boards add clarity to your goals because instead of just writing them down, you are looking at the image of it every day. Hey, your vision board could even help you land your dream career!
