Our dreams and goals are what give our lives meaning. They give us purpose and keep us passionate and motivated. Our vision of what we want to achieve in life gives us the courage and strength to keep going in difficult times and fuels our determination to succeed in the face of adversity.
Surprisingly, our digitally centered world, while simplifying our life in many ways, makes it harder to stay focused on our goals. As we try to keep pace with our hectic lifestyle and unending commitments, we often get sidetracked and lose sight of our vision. We put our dreams on the back burner or shelve them away in our minds. The danger is that we get so caught up in the proverbial "rat race", we risk losing our vision altogether.
Therefore, a vision board could be just what you need. As the name implies, it's a tool that helps you keep your goals and visions alive.
This book will explain how a vision board works and why it can be an amazingly powerful tool. It will provide step-by-step instructions on how to create your personal vision board and how to use it.
Our goals and visions are unique to us. Whether your dream is to create a successful online business, own your own house or become CEO of your company, a vision board can help. If your vision is to become rich or famous, find true love or provide a good life for your family, a vision board can bring you closer to your dreams. The beauty of a vision board is that it can be customized to fit any vision or aspiration.
Creating a vision board is easy, enjoyable and costs next to nothing - but the results can transform your life!
Why a Vision Board
First, let's get familiar with the basics and benefits of a vision board and understand why it's such a helpful tool.
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a surface (such as a bulletin board, magnetic board, or even a computer desktop) on which you display images of your future goals and dreams. These can include what you want to be, what to want to have in your life, and even people related to your goals who inspire you.
A vision board works to keep you focused on your goals and aspirations by looking at the images daily and visualizing your future life.
Benefits of using a vision board

Who can benefit from a vision board?
Absolutely anyone can benefit from a vision board, even children. A vision board relies on visualization, one of the most powerful tools available to every one of us.
For adults, a vision board can help with career, relationship, and family goals. It can help with personal health and fitness goals as well as financial goals. For children and younger adults, it can be perfect for educational goals and personal dreams.
