For many ambitious girls, there are plenty of goals that are waiting to be met. The struggle is staying focused and completing them. Whether it’s a short-term or long-term goal it can be done! Follow these DIY tips to create your own vision board to keep you on track to reach your goals.
Decide On Your Goals:
A long term goal can be to graduate with honors from your class, become a teacher, or even be organized. A short term goal can be to study for a test that week, exercising three times a week, or knowing your lines for the school play by the end of the week. Both short-term and long-term goals should be treated with equal importance because they are meant to be met no matter what. Once you have decided what your goals are, you can start focusing on making those goals a reality.
Create a Visualization Board:
A great way to begin brainstorming on what steps need to be taken in order to reach that goal is visualization. As the common term says, “Seeing is believing” its all you really need. Imagine seeing your goals every morning as you wake up as a reminder of what you want to accomplish.
Create a board of pictures, words, drawings or quotes that represent what you want to achieve. Cutting out pictures and positive words from magazines help make your board be much more vivid. If your goal is to be more fit, cut out a picture of a woman exercising and print out a picture of your face and place it on the woman’s face. It looks funny, but it helps you see yourself in that position just like in any position.
Don’t be afraid to use bright colors that will capture YOUR attention every day! You are personalizing your own goal board, so use your favorite colors or craft materials. It can also range in size, from a small board to a big poster board. The decision is up to the visionary, YOU.
Find the Right Spot:
When your masterpiece is complete place it somewhere where you will see it every day. Place it on your ceiling or on your door, a place where you know you’ll see it every morning when you wake up!
Reach Your Goals:
Everything takes time, but soon you’ll see your goals be accomplished and you’ll see your board with a sense of pride. Place stickers on the goals you have already completed to keep your board “alive”. The best thing about your board is that you can have as many as you want or change one every year, like a new year’s resolution with pictures!
