Today I wanted to share a DIY I made almost 2 summers ago. The reason I wanted to share now was because after taking it out of its storage, I was shocked to see that 3/4 of it had already happened! At the time I was creating these goals of mine and placing them in visual context I had no idea they would actually be accomplished within that short time frame. All I knew was exactly what I wanted in my life, but had little knowledge then as to what the “law of attraction” was.
As of now, I have started traveling to places I only saw behind screens, graduated from university, worked towards my savings/minimalism goals and met the man of my dreams. My health goal is yet to be reached, but I feel that one will take the most dedication and time to accomplish, which I know is something I really need to commit to because as the saying goes, “without health there is no wealth.”
What I do want to make clear is that simply creating a vision board will not bring you the accomplishments or abundance you desire. There needs to be work behind it. I believe much of what a vision board is is the clear and focused attention of the life you want with your goals working behind your subconscious. I hope to share some vision board inspiration with you and show you how I created mine from simple items.
Supplies you will need:
- Stack of magazines (I picked these up for free from a local buy/sell app!)
- Glue stick
- Ribbon (I used a ribbon handle I cut off from a gift bag)
- Poster board or foam board
The sections I divided by (from top to bottom):
- Start by jotting down your goals and ideas of what that looks like to you.
- Then go flipping through all of your magazines and cut out anything that matches that description, or even just colorful images that connect to your goals in some way.
- Next arrange and rearrange your cut outs to how you like. This may be in sections like mine or can simply be random. Don’t be afraid to overlap and recut images to fit your board. Have fun with it and play motivational music!
- Now glue down your final layout and let dry. On the back, tape your ribbon to hang on your wall, or add magnets if placing on fridge.
- TIP: Place it somewhere easily visible that you will look at daily, whether that is in your bedroom, closet, office or even fridge.
