How to Create a Vision Board to Help You Realize Your Dreams

 

Visualization is a powerful mind exercise that can help you plan and achieve goals. A vision board, as a tangible representation of what you want to achieve in your life, plays a vital role in this effort.

Weʼll start by discussing the philosophy behind vision boards, along with different types of vision boards created by individuals around the world. Next, we’ll explore possible personal and professional goals for 2019 followed by images, words, and/or other materials to help you best visualize what you want. A list of resources where you can find relevant materials will be provided. Finally, we’ll consider options for creating your actual vision board and how to use it once it’s completed.

During this Webinar we will:·
Identify possible goals in different areas of your life for 2019;·
Learn where to find images, artwork, and other materials that best describe what you want;·
Demonstrate how to put together a collage of your gathered goals/dreams/aspirations; and
