When you think of a vision board, what do you think of? Perhaps it’s simply a collage of magazine cutouts and affirmations that can easily be dismissed as an arts and crafts project. However, when you learn that Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Jim Carrey have all praised the power of using vision boards to achieve their dreams, you might think twice about dismissing the concept!
Creating a vision board goes beyond sticking pretty pictures onto a poster board. In fact, there is a proven way to go about creating it to shift your mindset and set you up for success. In this week’s blog, I’m going to talk you through exactly how vision boards work and how to make a vision board of your own so that you can begin to inspire change and start living the life of your dreams.
How it works
Vision boards are a way of visualising your goals, a practice that has been touted by the world’s most successful people. But what does science have to say about vision boards? Quite a lot actually! The practice has been scientifically proven to help reprogram the subconscious mind, resulting in greater self-confidence and lack of fear of failure.
If there is something I’ve learned from launching EVEDARE, it’s that whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right! For me, vision boards are a daily reminder of what is possible, of what I’m truly able to achieve despite the little voice in my head telling me I can’t. Vision boards are also a tangible way to hold me accountable to achieving the things I’ve told myself I will.
How to create a vision board (the right way)
The first thing you need to do when creating a vision board is to get to the core of what you truly want out of life. Sure, you want to launch your own business for example, but WHY? Perhaps it’s because you want to wake up every morning excited to start your day. Perhaps it’s because you want more freedom. Whatever it may be, put the focus on how you want to feel. Dig deep, and continuously ask yourself “why?”
Once you have connected to these core feelings, values and desires, it’s time to choose images and quotes that align with them. The important thing is that these quotes and images should bring about the exact same feelings you wish to manifest through your vision board. So for example, if you wanted to start your own business because you wanted to feel financial security, choose an image that makes you feel safe and secure whenever you look at it. This way, you will rewire your subconscious mind to believe it already is so, which in turn allows you to act accordingly. In this way, your vision board will truly set you up for greatness!
Where to find images for your vision board
Magazines and search engines like Pinterest are a great place to start. However, since spending hours searching for images may seem like a daunting task, we’ve decided to send a special gift to each of our EVEDARE customers. When you buy the EVEDARE Eyelash Serum, you’ll receive a set of stickers with inspiring quotes and affirmations handpicked by me! You can stick your new vision board stickers on your vision board, or simply put them in a place you will see every day like your bathroom mirror or the inside of your closet. This way, you will feel inspired, motivated and ready to dare to dream and do whatever your heart desires!
I can’t wait to see how your vision board changes your life, gorgeous! You deserve every bit of success that comes your way, and what better way to accelerate your success than putting your dreams onto paper? If it worked for Oprah, then I have no doubt it will work for you, too!
