How-To's: How to create a vision board

Welcome to 2012!

The year of the Dragon! Well, not technically yet since the Chinese New Year is celebrated on January 23rd this year. Nonetheless, according to ancient China, the celestial Dragon represents an emperor and  power. Today, it  is the ultimate auspicious symbol signifying success and happiness. 

Not a bad way to set the tone for the New Year. I'm all for mega success and happiness galore!

However, with the pressures of the New Year comes the dreaded New year resolutions. So, a few of my friends reached out to ask me if there was a fun and creative way to list out resolutions instead of writing them out on a blank, boring, uneventful piece of paper.

Of course there's a fun way to incorporate your goals and aspirations in a colorful inspiring way.

It's called a vision board! :)

It's super easy and inexpensive. Here's what you'll need:

A foam board (you can get one at Michael's, Target, etc.)
Glue or double stick tape (whichever you have laying around)

So as I mentioned, instead of writing down.."loose 30 lbs." or ..."organize my blah-blah"....or "go to the gym everyday for an hour of yackity-yak", why not cut out a few words and pictures that will get your motivated? 

Here's what I mean...

Want more love and happiness in your life?
Add a caption to remind you of what's to come :)

Not feeling confident with that presentation tomorrow? Will you be at a party where you hardly know the crowd?
Nah-ah honey, you got this! SMILE! You are all day FIERCE! *snaps*

Dreaming of a day where you can be pampered like the Queen (or King!) that you are?
Stick this baby on your board and you're on your way

Procrastinating much? Imagine the things you can achieve by what
 you can DO NOW.

Get the idea? You can make it as linear or as colorful as you'd like. It could be about anything you feel you need more of in your life or places you dream of going or would like to re-visit, your dream home, your dream career, etc. 

Be creative! Dream BIG! BE BOLD!

Here's one I've created for travel :)

 You can can create more than one vision board and make it as simple or as elaborate as you wish.Once you've completed your own personal board, place it to where you can see it so you can be reminded of the steps you need to take in order to be closer to your dreams and goals.

I hope this encourages you to  create your own vision board filled with pictures of fun and wonderful things and words of encouragement. Feel free to post pictures of your vision board on my FB fan page. I'd love to see them!
Here's to attracting more happiness and success in your life this Year of the Dragon 2012. 

Laugh, Love, Live Positive
