Creating a Vision Board. Free Printables!
Vision boards are often called Creative Collages, Dream Boards, Goal Boards, Mind Maps, and Treasure Maps. They are visual representations of your hopes and dreams, they help define your purpose, and set your goals. The saying “A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words” is true. We think, remember, and plan in pictures. If I ask you "what is your best childhood memory?" most of you just saw a picture or movie in your mind of this memory...you SAW it. Who was your first pet? Did an image of your first dog just pop into your mind? Images are powerful tools that can help you create the life you want. Neuroscience has found that the subconscious mind, which is responsible for most of what we do, sees pictures and mostly uses it's visual sense. Providing your subconscious mind with positive, motivating, uplifting images is an effective way to "train your brain" to help you succeed.
Vision boards are designed to evoke emotion, to make you feel, the images you choose should be meaningful, powerful, and speak to you at your core. You may cut out 100 pictures, and only use 10, in fact, I hope you do! That process of evaluating, discerning, and choosing the very best representations of what you want, is a worthwhile effort in and of itself.

Many people like to put a mantra in the middle of their vision board. Sometimes this is a well know motivational quote, and other times you might create something just perfectly suited to you and your dreams. Here are a few ideas:
Live Loud (or open, or free)
Fit, Fierce, Fabulous
I Am Strong
This is MY Year (season)
I am a SUCCESS
I am a Winner
I am worth it
Head up, Heart Open
Let NAME, Be NAME (this one is a powerful statement of self-acceptance. Many of us wear a mask, pretend to be what others want us to be. This mantra says I am ME and will BE ME). Example: Let Jane, Be Jane!
I Accept Abundant Love and Happiness (change this to anything you want in abundance)
I am Thankful
Here are some free printable. You can right-click the image and hit SAVE, then print it when you are ready. One of these could also work for your mantra.
