Catherine Ponder's book "The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity" was life changing for me--Kay
How To Make A Vision Board
I have read the chapter (“How to make a wheel of fortune”) many times but never actually created a Vision Board for myself. It got me thinking that this would be a great way to teach our children to set goals and reach them and it was up to me to lead by example and make my own. I find that the current generations are too much into instant gratification and railroaded into specific outcomes (e.g. video games and movies have set outcomes and don’t promote creativity). Creativity and Imagination are alien concepts for children these days.
Maggie and I went out and purchased 4 large boards for the dream boards, one for us and one each for the girls. We got some nice color ones (Red, Blue and Green) to make it more interesting and colorful. You need to make sure it can fit 4 x A4 or 4 x legal size pages.
How To Create A Vision BoardThe idea is to divide the board into 4 equal parts representing 4 different aspects of life. You can choose your own aspects but we stuck with what the book recommended.
- Business or School/University
For your business, money or success goals.
- Social & Leisure
Places you want to visit and things you want to do in your spare time.
Family goals such as a New House (or Palace or Castle). THINK BIG.
Anything related to your spiritual search.
Next go and and find pictures that would make you feel that you had already reached each of these 4 goal areas. I found old copies of the “The Rob Report” and “Fortune Magazine” and just cut out some pictures from those. You could also look in google images and print pictures out from here.
Here is the finished result.
“..grit may turn out to be at least as good a gauge of future success as talent itself. In a series of provocative new studies at the University of Pennsylvania, researchers find that the gritty are more likely to achieve success in school, work and other pursuits—perhaps because their passion and commitment help them endure the inevitable setbacks that occur in any long-term undertaking.”
Virtual Dream BoardsYou can purchase virtual vision boards online if you want but I think that the physical dream board is much more fun for children to create. After having done one for myself the girls are now very keen to produce their own. We will let you know the results over time.
So get the kids involved and start making your own Vision Board this weekend and get excited about life.
