What is a vision board?

    Most commonly known as a vision board, it may also be called a dream board, dream collage, mood board, affirmation board, action board, or a goal-setting board.
    Vision boards are a collection of images, text, quotes, affirmations, and action items that represent your dreams, goals, and focuses. They are placed somewhere you will see them often, to remind you of the goals you have set for yourself and how you will achieve them. Vision boards are effective tools that use the power of visualization to help you design the life of your dreams!

    Do vision boards really work?

    The answer to this question depends a lot on you! Vision boards work because they transform your thoughts and dreams into something you can see and touch. Your vision board is a powerful guide that's there to help you achieve the end goal. It is like a silent coach: constantly reminding you that you are amazing, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to, and that the win is within your reach! Like a coach, a vision board leads you toward victory, but you are going to have to put some work in as well.

    What does that mean? You should include action items in your vision board: steps you can take to achieve each of the goals and focuses on your board. Don't just include images of what your dream life looks like, but also images of the actions you will take to get there. Then use the board to remind you of those actions. Use it as a guide and a motivator. Hang it where you will look at it often. Celebrate small victories. Stay positive. Don't let obstacles discourage you.


    Handwritten words relating to the Law of Attraction

    Vision boards and the Law of Attraction

    If you are familiar with the Law of Attraction and manifestation, then you have probably heard of vision boards before! A vision board is one of the tools used to harness the Law of Attraction to manifest the life of your dreams. The Law of Attraction states that when you focus on something, you attract it to you. That our actual reality is a direct result of the energy from our thoughts.

    Vision boards give a clear direction to the thoughts and energy that you want to turn into reality. They allow you to visualize what you want and keep your focus on your priorities. Not only do they serve as a daily reminder of what you really want, but also encourage you to take action toward those goals. 

    Benefits of a vision board

    Vision boards narrow your focus on what it is you really want. When you sit down to create your board, you are compelled to decide what your goals and focuses are. You include action items that will help you achieve the goals. You select images that represent what you desire the outcome to look like. You include inspirational quotes that motivate you. Everything you put into the board helps clarify what is important to you. 
    Vision boards keep you motivated. How many times have you gotten excited and fired up about a goal or plan, only to have that amazing dream buried under the pile of your mundane, every day tasks and chores? Looking at your board every day keeps the excitement and passion going to achieve what is meant for you!
    Vision boards help make the unachievable achievable. Often what holds us back from our biggest dreams is the fear of failure. But by visualizing the achievement of your goals every day, they become familiar to you and less intimidating. You become more focused and more likely to take action to reach the dream.

        Advantages of a DreamCollage vision board

        Why use DreamCollage for your vision board?
        It's easy.
        • Traditionally, vision boards were made by collecting piles of magazines, going through said piles searching for images and text, cutting out the images and text, and then pasting them to a poster board. Some people enjoy this method. But it is time-consuming, messy, requires materials you may not have readily available, and the result isn't always pretty. You also can't always find images or text that are quite right for your specific goals and dreams.
        • An alternative is to use digital design software to create a vision board. This method requires first learning how the design software works. You may get frustrated if your design doesn't look great. You may have to sign up and pay for a subscription to use premium images or features. And then you need to find a printer to print the vision board for you.
        • With DreamCollage, all you have to do is select a design that you like and follow the prompts to personalize the vision board. You will see a preview of what your vision board looks like. Place your order and we will print and ship your vision board to you!
