You’ve read the 4HWW and you’ve finally made the perfect Dreamline. Now what? For me the answer is a Vision Board. It’s kinda like: Tim Ferriss meets The Secret. The purpose of a Vision Board is to serve as a reminder of all the things that you want to bring into your life. Basically, you’re going to make a collage of things that you want to achieve (i.e. Have, Be, Do from the Dreamline). A Vision Board gives you a visual of your goals and brings them to life because you are actually picturing them as opposed to just seeing words on a paper.
There have been a lot of misconceptions with The Secret and The Law of Attraction. No, I do not believe that just hanging photos of things you want will bring them into your life. And either to the authors of The Secret. The purpose is to help you create intense focus, envision the things that you want, and feel the feelings of having those things before you actually do. However, you still have to take the action steps necessary if you really want to obtain your dreams. Think of a Vision Board as a constant reminder of your dreams, goals and ambitions. You may say B.S., but does it hurt you in any way to try this method? I think not, so go ahead, and turn your Dreamline into a Vision Board.
Here’s three steps to creating the ultimate Vision Board:
#1: Find photos, magazine clip-outs, pamphlets, etc.. that represent the items on your Dreamline. For example, I wanted to get Veneers. I clipped out a picture of Brooke Burke’s beautiful smile and I had it on my Vision Board reminding me of my goal. I worked toward it and about 6 months later, I had a new smile. Also, you should use a cork board (instead of poster board) because as your year progresses you’ll want to add things to your Vision Board and remove those that you’ve accomplished.
#2: Get as creative as you can. Channel your inner Kindergartner and make design your Vision Board inspiring. Example: Maybe you want to have a Porsche. Go to a dealership, sit in one, have your picture taken and use it on your Vision Board. Or use Photoshop to have your image superimposed into the car. If everyday, you see a photo of you sitting in your dream car, eventually you’ll find a way to make it happen.
#3: Hang your Vision Board somewhere that you’ll see it everyday. For us, our Vision Boards are in the bathroom because it’s the first place we go in the morning and it’s the last place we go at night. So, while getting ready for the day or for bed we can see our dreams “come alive” so to speak.
That’s it. It’s simple as that. I’d love to hear your thoughts or experiences with a Vision Board. So please leave me a comment:)
