When this blog’s mission is “Stop Dreaming and Start Living” it is only a matter of time before we do an article on how to create a vision board.

Vision board critic.

I like to consider myself a creative person. I also consider myself goal orientated and very logical. I believe achieving a goal takes planning and consistent action.

I don’t believe that you can just manifest your destiny.

Goals should be in list form with clear cut steps and deadlines. There is nothing artistic or creative about goals.

Why do I believe in vision boards?

Goals, especially BIG goals, take time. For some goals it can take months or even years. We wake up and take small steps to achieve our goals. Then, there are days when life pulls away and we get lost in work deadlines, kid’s activities and endless piles of laundry.

Having your goals posted helps keep you focused.

To achieve goals it takes time, focus and determination. Distraction and discouragement is normal when you’re on your journey to accomplish your goals. Having a visually stimulating and appealing vision board that you can see on a daily basis will remind you of your why, keep you focused and motivated.

How to create a vision board:

Supplies List

· 8x10 paper (whatever you have)

· Magazines, or google

· Color printer

Who wants to hangout?

I did my vision board with my office. You can do it with your girlfriends, family, children or by yourself.

What do I do with my vision board?

Mine sits in my office, that way when I’m having a hard or long day I can look at why I’m doing what I am doing. I have seen people take a picture of their vision board and use it as a screensaver on their phone or desktop. You can place it on your bathroom mirror or next to your coffee maker.

Have fun. I would love to see what you create! Post your vision board on Instagram and use the hashtag #RelativeGrowthVisionBoard
