I am a constant visitor to the positively present site which is alway full of vision for a life of style and thinking positively. I had to share their 3 essential tips to create your vision board. We all need vision in life to create our ideas and where we would like to be in the future.

Creating a vision board is easy. Because it's about you and what you want, you can use any format and any medium. Even though it's a completely open-ended task, having done this a few times, I've discovered that there are some essentials that should be woven into the vision board-creating process. Here's what you'll need to have to make your vision a success:
To create a truly great vision for yourself, you need time. You need the time to figure out what you really want in your life. Just slapping some words or images on a board isn't going to get you very far (or very far in the right direction). Determining a vision for your life takes careful thought. As you create your vision, imagine what it would be like to really get (or keep) these things in your life. Are they really what you want? When you dedicate time to your vision, you'll uncover what's truly important to you -- and avoid desiring things you think you're supposed to want.
Giving yourself time to create the vision you truly want also frees you up to think about things that are important to you that you might not have considered before. Time gives you the freedom to see things from a different point of view -- and to contemplate some aspects of your life that you might not have thought of as important before. For example, I put "concerts" on my vision board. Sounds a bit trivial, doesn't it? But, for me, being at a really great concert is one of the true places I feel absolute and utter joy. (Just ask anyone who's gone to one with me and seen that stupid grin on my face as I bounce up and down with the excitement of a toddler!) "Concerts" didn't come to my mind when I first started working on the board, but after spending time thinking about what I really want more of in my life, they came to me.
It's tempting to just rush into the whole vision board thing. After all, you know what you want, right? But don't rush it. If you take your time, you'll discover things -- important things -- that are must-haves for your life's vision.
Yes, the vision board is just for you -- but when we don't share our dreams and desires with the world, we lose some of the accountability that comes with sharing what we want. When you tell others what you want, you're more likely to actively go after it. You're more likely to stay on track with your goals. Same goes for your vision. If you tell someone about it, you'll both make it more tangible and you'll have someone to hold you accountable for your desires. You don't have go blog it the world (like I'm about to do!), but even just telling one person can help you be more successful in turning visions into realities.
Finally, you need conviction. You need to believe that what you want is what you can get. If you don't, your vision board is certain to struggle. You need certainty. You need confidence. Without the belief that you can (and will!) succeed, your visions won't be more than just images on paper. The main purpose of creating a vision board is to identify what you want, but it also serves as a reminder for you to be confident in yourself and your desires. Believe that you can achieve what you want -- and, more importantly, believe that you deserve to achieve it.
