Goal Setting with a Vision Board!

Vision Board with Me! How to Create and Use a Vision Board to Manifest Your Best New Year Yet!

Happy New Year! In the past two years I have been making vision boards to visualize all my dreams and goals for the year as a constant reminder of the expectations for myself. I didn’t know that when I first decided to make one in 2018, I would manifesting my dreams into reality. I am here to share with you all how I create a vision board that works!

Start off With A Plan

Before cutting and pasting random magazine clippings, create your vision board with intention. Use my free vision board kit to get started! Write down your goals for the year in categories, and where you will find images and texts to place on your vision board. Go to your local dollar store to get all your supplies and solid color (or white) Bristol board.

Look for Specific Pictures Online

I love going on Pinterest to find photos because the search algorithm is very specific. Search for key words that you wrote on your first page of the vision board kit and see what pops up. You want a good balance between visual photos, artwork, key words and quotes. Resize them in a word document so your not wasting too much paper printing larger than needed visuals.

Create Your Own Clippings

I sometimes open up the word document and type out my own positive affirmations or key words that I want to be or achieve. Being specific with your goals with words so you can easily understand your vision board a year after is key to manifesting exactly what you want. Don’t forget to type out the year in big numbers too!

Organize Your Vision Board into Sections

This step is very important to clearly understanding your goals everyday just by looking at your vision board. Try to group similar goals in the same area. In my vision board kit, I’ve organized my goals into four main groups: career development, fitness and health, family friends and loved ones, and self-care/mental well-being (including spirituality). That helps the board to not look to overwhelming. Also, do not feel the need to finish the board all in one night. Take breaks if needed, or have a second look at the layout the next day before gluing it down.

Hang It Up Somewhere You’ll See Everyday!

I like to put my vision board right next to my door so every morning when I leave I see it. It also makes for great decor in your room or home office space.

Reminder

You do not need to accomplish everything on your vision board on the first week of the new year.

The difference between new years revolutions and setting yearly goals, is that your goals are a process. Your job is to plan how you will accomplish those goals, and you have all year to work on it!

It’s all about your mindset.

Think of everything that is on your vision board as goals you have already accomplished. Say present tense verbs like I HAVE or I AM rather than “I want” when you look at your vision board everyday. Your mind is a powerful entity and once you start believing you have it, you will get it!

Schedule smaller goals inbetween.

Create smaller, more obtainable goals to get to your big goals on your vision board first. This helps with creating good habits and a routine, so you’ll be ready when the blessing comes around. This could be adding content to your portfolio as soon as it’s done everytime, or updating your website regularly, so that when am opportunity pops up you will already have everything up on your website ready.

Celebrate the wins, and stay positive during small losses.

You win some and you lose some. You may not get everything you desire right away, but it is all about timing. Trust the process that when the right opportunity does not come, you now have better feedback for something better. Take it as a lesson to grow and become a stronger, better you. Sometimes it is not about what you get in life at that moment, but how you react. Have gratitude for all of the blessings that have already passed through your life and what is to come.

Sincerely,

Arienne J

How to Find Visual Inspiration?

Everyone wants their work to be original. They want their visual content to be modern but nothing anyone has seen before. Personally I am constantly searching for inspiration as a visual designer, so that the content I make is forward thinking. Finding inspiration is at the top of my list in my creative process.

Finding Visual Inspiration Online.

I am always on the lookout for new and upcoming trends because in the digital world, trends move so fast. My creative process starts with research. When I have free time I like to do a quick search of trends, but I discovered following other designers, design account, and design topics on social media is much more effective than just searching for articles on Google when the time comes to create something new. You want to stumble upon new ideas rather than search for them.

Top Apps/Sites I Go on When I Need Inspiration

  1. Pinterest
  2. Instagram (following hashtags)
  3. Behance
  4. Dribbble
  5. 99Designs
  6. SiteInspire
  7. dropbox.design
  8. The Dsgn Blog
  9. Visuelle UK
  10. httpster

All of them are very unique. Ranging from graphic design, mixed photography, web design, product design & more. I like to follow accounts in these websites, or follow the blog so it goes straight to my feed. Again this is just the start of my creative process. Many other steps are taken along side with visual research: including client assessment (having the client give deliverable expectations and the goal for the design/product) and target audience research. A few of these blog sites are great at explaining the creator’s creative process and steps they took to create their final product, so I would encourage you to check them out!
