The first time I ever heard of a vision board was when I was watching the episode of Oprah on which she featured the US Olympic athletes. All-Around gold medal women’s gymnastic winner Nastia Liukin spoke of how she created a vision board after watching an episode of Oprah herself. Her vision board, of course, depicted images of her victory at the Olympic Games in China.
Isn’t that amazing?! Naturally, I couldn’t wait to find out more about vision boards.
The book The Vision Board—The Secret to an Extraordinary Life by Joyce Schwarz (HarperCollins, $24.95) explains in detail all about vision boards. “This book is about today, it’s about now—it’s about real people who have brought remarkable change to their lives with powerful, real dreams and visions. It’s not about wishful thinking.”
The book explains how to start a vision board, how to make one, and its many uses.
Many people may not know where to start when it comes to a vision board, but the book helps guide you. The book explains the importance of GRABS, (gratitude, release and receive, acknowledge and ask, be and believe, share), visioning, vision statements, mottos, affirmations, and defining images—all which help to get you off on the right track to starting your own vision board.
The Vision Board also describes how to create a vision board. Many people take images from magazines and newspapers and glue them to a poster board. Others do digital vision boards, using photographs and clipart (which is what I plan to do). Yet others have an entire vision wall. That’s right—an entire wall!
Vision boards are not only useful for your goals and aspirations for life in general, but you can tailor them to special events, romance, health and well-being, and so much more. The possibilities are endless.
There are numerous examples of vision boards in the book, as well as many stories that share the results of vision boards and the entire visioning experience. The Vision Board is a very inspirational book that can help you achieve your life goals. I can’t wait to start my own vision board and see what great changes and achievements are in store!
