The year 2023 is approaching fast, and if you don’t want to waste another year procrastinating on things that matter to you – you must set up your vision board now. With the new year being around the corner, “now” is a perfect time to gain clarity on your goals and future vision, and a vision board can be your greatest ally in this regard.
Haven’t thought about creating a vision board before and don’t know where to start? Don’t worry. I got your back!
This blog post is dedicated to giving the best vision board ideas for 2023 so that you have ample information and resources to take your first step toward transforming your life.
HOW TO MAKE A VISION BOARD THAT REALLY WORKS?
You can make a digital vision board or a physical one (depending on your preference). But I have personally observed that physical vision boards tend to yield far faster and better results when compared to their digital counterparts.
There can be a few reasons for this:
- A physical vision requires more effort and deliberation than a digital one. Our brain naturally categorizes something as more important if it takes significant effort.
- Setting up a physical vision board is a much richer and immersive experience than making one on a computer.
- To design an amazing digital board, you need basic photoshop skills; and not everyone has those skills. But a physical vision board can be designed by just anyone. No skills needed, whatsoever; just a strong passion for designing (creating) their future.
Keeping in mind the sheer hassle of creating a physical board, my company “The Vision Cloud” has developed two fantastic ready-to-use vision board kits.
The first is a vision board kit with a board, deck of stunning imagery, another deck of positive statements and a page of quirky stickers. Our second product is for the truly passionate creators that’s why we named it the vision board magazine kit. As the name suggests, it contains a magazine with images and statements that you can cut and paste onto the board provided in the kit. This kit is for the creative enthusiasts who want to go “all-in” with designing their new lives.
You will get clarity on both the products as you read along, and the details I will provide might also help you choose the best kit that suits your needs.
VISION BOARD IDEAS FOR STUDENTS
A vision board is a fantastic invention for the students. Whether you are struggling with your curriculum or not clear about what study route to take, a vision board can help you with this.
Here are a few powerful vision board ideas that can help you kickstart your ambitions.
VISION BOARD FOR GRADES
One of the biggest concerns of students is good grades and rightly so! If you want to ace your exams, creating a vision board that reminds and motivates you to achieve good grades is crucial.
Here is how to go about it.
- First select a few pictures that correspond to good grades and success.
- Then stick on positive words and affirmations to motivate you to study hard.
- Mix up your vision board with a few stickers to make it come alive.
If you are making a vision board for grades, then our vision board kit suits your needs perfectly. It has the images, positive affirmations and stickers you would need for your project.
VISION BOARD FOR CAREER PATH
If you are a senior year student at your school, then this is a good time to think about what you want to do with your life after you are done with your studies.
To make a vision board for your career path, you can use the two activities in our first vision board kit. The first activity has a set of questions that helps you reflect on where you are in your life and the second activity will help you set concrete goals for your future.
Just filling out these 2 pages will help you develop a crystal clear understanding about where you stand, what options you have at your disposal and what future you want to create in terms of the career path.
VISION BOARD IDEAS FOR ADULTS
I AM VISION BOARD
I AM are two powerful words you can use to make any desire of yours come true. This is why most of the positive affirmations you would encounter start with these two words. Using affirmations with your vision board is revolutionary and can help accelerate your results.
Here is a quick tutorial on how to do this:
- Identify what positive affirmations you want to associate with yourself e.g. I am beautiful; I am confident; I am rich and so on.
- Carefully select images and words that depict that version and paste them on your board.
- Whenever you look at the vision board, repeat the I AM affirmations to yourself for a few minutes.
Another cool way of using I AM affirmations is to write one affirmation everyday to install a strong belief in your mind.
Our vision board magazine kit contains a pocket-sized notebook called the “66 day affirmation challenge”. It has 66 pages and you are supposed to write at least one I AM affirmation that makes you feel connected to your future self every day.
Do it for 66 days straight and VOILA! You would have reprogrammed your mind for an empowering belief.
Gratitude Vision Board
The last vision board idea I have for you is creating the gratitude vision board.
We all have heard that gratitude is a great multiplier of blessings, but have you ever thought why is it so?
The rationale is pretty simple but requires a basic understanding of the law of attraction. The law of attraction states that what you focus on is what you attract more of.
So, if you focus on what you have and feel thankful for those things, the universe will send more things and experiences that will evoke the same feelings inside you.
Also, there is another powerful concept of feeling gratitude in advance.
A lot of spiritual teachers including Neville Goddard preach that if you start being thankful for the things you desire in advance, you are going to manifest them sooner. This is because your mind cannot distinguish between what’s real and what’s imagined. So, being thankful for a desire in advance signals your brain that you possess what you want.
To create a gratitude vision board, all you have to do is to pick out interesting images and words that accurately depict your (desired) future. You can also add a few gratitude affirmations to the board like:
- I am so grateful for my perfect health.
- I am so thankful for my amazing job.
- I am thankful that I now have more than enough money.
Now every time you look at your vision board, you will not only visualize your future but you will also be able to feel elevated emotion because of the gratitude affirmations. These elevated emotions will assist in making your desires come true at a much faster (sometimes miraculous) rate.
