3 Reasons You Owe it to Yourself to make a Vision Board

Last November I made a vision board and I'm pretty much convinced you should too. Here's 3 reasons you need to make one:

//1// If you don't have vision, you risk just wandering around until you're 70 and look back at your life wondering what you did with all those years. Don't be that person.

//2// Making a vision board gives your dreams life, color and direction.

//3// When you make an effort to visualize your goals and dreams, you end up with a clearer picture of what you want.

Now that you're clearly convinced, here's 3 tips to get you started.

//1// Write down 4-6 (or whatever) goals or "visions" you have for what you want in your near future. Have a solid idea of what you're looking for.

//2// Scour old magazines for photos or headlines that represent your vision.

You could look at this as tiresome and tedious or an opportunity to laugh at old magazines and remember the good ol' days. I used a huge stack of 90s National Geographic magazines with lots of friends and it was a solid good time. 10/10 experience.

//3// Find a background color

As you're looking for representation of your goals, look for a color scheme to create a background. I'm aware this could sound nearly impossible, but it was surprisingly easy for all of us to find inspiration and a good collection of background material.

//And one bonus tip//
