What is a Vision Board??

A vision board is a visual representation of what you want to achieve by pasting words and/or pictures on a poster board.  In and of itself, it is pretty straightforward and simple.  But in terms of its effect, it is very powerful.  The objective behind the vision board is that you’re documenting, in a visual manner, the pictures and/or words that are associated with what you want to embody and have in life.  It is forward-looking, and in a snap shot, it shows your aspirations.  A vision board leverages the law of attraction as you bring together all the relevant images and words that will drive and motivate you to take the steps necessary to realize your dreams.

Preparation for 2011

As you reflect on 2010 and think up new resolutions for 2011, a vision board is a fun way to plan ahead.
