Turn Your Dreamline into a Vision Board

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:)

    Yes, I love the mind movie! We made one and we watch it a couple of times per week. It’s a great visualization tool. Thanks for the great comment!

    Awesome. I never thought of using corkboard – that’s a great idea. My only problem is that I hate cutting up my magazines!

    If you want to really delve into the Vision Board process for 2009 then I’d be glad to forward you a review copy of THE VISION BOARD: The Secret to An Extraordinary Life which is the #1 Spiritual Bestseller on Amazon.com. The book also explains the power of the ‘visioning’ process which comes from the inside out vs outside in like visualization. You can peek at the book at http://tinyurl.com/seevb

    Hey, that’s a great idea. This inspires me to add some sort of ‘add photo’ feature to my iPhone Application ‘Dreamline’ in the near future. It’s still not really a Vision Board then, but having some visualizations of your dreams with you is probably a very nice feature. I also like this, as it turns the cold calculation-centric spreadsheet into a warm emotion-loaded collage.

    May I ask if the one million dollars has already become a reality?
