BEFORE VISION BOARDING
Before you begin your vision board, brainstorm about each of the elements above. Under each element brainstorm as many goals as you can think. For example, brainstorm all your fitness, wellness, and nutritional goals on paper. Then after you brainstorm for all 10 elements find images of each of those goals in magazines. Remember that there is no wrong way to create a vision board and feel free to adapt your own unique style to it.
AFTER VISION BOARDING
After you finish your vision board put it in a place you see every single day. This could be on the wall in your bedroom, on the fridge, or on your desk at work. Each day be sure to allot time to look at your vision board and self reflect about where you are in progress with your 2020 visions. Each day be cognizant of what your 2020 visions are and take steps to manifest those visions into reality. On days you feel like you're stuck in a rut reflecting back to element number 8 (People That Inspire You) and identify them on your vision board. Use your heroes as inspiration to keep pushing forward. Never forget, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them "(Walt Disney).
