Vision Board Your New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year to YOU and yours!

New year, new start. Did you make your New Year's resolutions yet? Wait! Do something different this year--vision board your resolutions!

What you'll need:
  1. A poster board--better still, get a thicker poster board (1/4 inch). You can find this at many Dollar stores or at your local stationary store. Or disassemble a cardboard box and lay a large section flat. You can even use a bulletin board. You might want to cover your board with material or just leave it plain.
  2. Magazines--if you don't have any on hand, ask around. Or go to a second-hand book store and for less than the cost of one magazine, buy a stack of mags that appeal to you.
  3. Scissors, glue and tape
  4. Some ME time--a quiet afternoon by yourself or with a friend or two (makes it more FUN!)
Next...
Either alone or sitting and chatting with a circle of friends, cut out of your magazines, pictures and words that appeal or somehow resonate with you. I've done this with a friend whereby we shared pictures we had come across based on something the other person said. It was interesting to note how our conversation inspired our finds. Apply the pictures to your board. Don't worry about how neat or pretty your board looks; the point is to get these images onto your board. Be brave. Be bold. Let your imagination run as you dwell in possibilities.

Goals tend to stick when we share them with others. And sharing makes our commitment real. Take some time to show and tell, going around the circle and highlighting what stands out for you as a focus on your board and why this is important to you.

Another way to do this activity is to create your board on Pinterest, a simple online tool that lets you pin images from the Internet onto a space of your own. Pinterest now offers hidden boards so you don't have to share your pictures with the world (Click here to view my Pinterest boards).

Display your vision board in a prominent place at home. You might even add other pictures to your board during the coming weeks and months. Watch your life unfold. Vision boarding is law of attraction and creating your reality all rolled into one. "What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve," says Napoleon Hill. Come back here and let us know how the miracles happen in your life.

Happy Vision Boarding! Wishing you much joy and abundance in 2013!

    I've done vision boarding before and yes, it's more fun when sharing with friends ;)I'm a creative soul, so this can fuel my writing and other activities in general.
    Wishing you a healthy, creative, and succesful year.
