Tips for building your vision board
So, get ready to build your own vision board in the next topic following these tips:
- Look at the personal priority list that you created for yourself (your team or your organisation) in the last lesson. You will need your priorities to build the vision board.
- Choose and put up visuals (images, quotes, affirmations, photos, etc.) that serve your goal on your vision board.
Start now and allow yourself to add to it over the next three weeks.
For example, pick an image of laughing people to symbolise your happy employees.
- Only select outcomes for which you are able to create an action plan!
Don’t pick anything that you don’t understand enough to define your first step.
- Only choose visuals that have the power to drive actions!
Don’t pick anything that you should do because someone said so.
- If comfortable, present your vision board to others to boost accountability.
Remember the visuals are representative of what you want to attract, you are not limiting yourself to the specific details.
- Create a space for your vision board that makes it easy for you to visualise as part of your daily routine.
