You want to make a vision board online because you don’t have time, patience, or energy to gather supplies and put a board together.
There are so many things on our plates already, what with work, family commitments, and all of life’s other distractions, that we often feel like there just aren’t enough hours in a day!
However, if you are also looking to take a physical approach to creating a dream board, read How to Create A Vision Board to Achieve Goals in Less than a Year.
WHY CREATE A VISION BOARD ONLINE?
Since a vision board is a visual way to attract things you want in life to YOU, it must be in a place that you see often.
Now in this era, people are always on their electronics, so a computer or mobile phone is a perfect place to have a visual representation of the things you want to manifest in life.
Plus, if you create your digital vision board, you can easily update it when new goals or dreams come to mind.
CREATE A VISION BOARD THE REPRESENTS YOU
When creating your vision board, you will want to find images and words that represent the life you wish to live.
You are probably wondering where can I find images to add to my online vision board so I can manifest them easily. I get it.
It’s not like you can cut things out of a magazine and add them to your board.
So for your online vision board that we are creating for free. Below is a list of beautiful free images that you can download and add stock photos to your vision board.
These websites are a great start when downloading images that inspire you. But, if you don’t find anything that gives your inspiration, you can always add photos you uploaded.
It’s best to search short and simple terms to see what pops up like an entrepreneur, work from home, working mom, beach, computer job, mom boss, reading, money, inspirational quotes, etc. Anything that will tap into your inner desires and goals and define your key to success in life.
Searching through pictures is a fantastic method to get an idea of what your life will look like if you’re unsure what to include on your board.
How Difficult is it to create an Online Vision Board?
The process of creating a vision board online is not complicated at all. It can be quickly done in a few minutes using free online tools or other online apps.
All you need is a computer or mobile device with internet access, and you’re good to go!
I find the process relatively simple.
Why do Vision Boards Work?
Dream boards are a powerful way of visualizing what you want in life. They help you focus on the things that matter and make them happen. You’ll be amazed at how much more motivated and inspired you to feel when seeing your board.
It’s a visually aesthetically appealing way to manifest your life and focus on what you want to accomplish.
Plus, it’s a constant reminder of all the things you need to take your life to the next level.
Things you need to know before your start your first vision board online
Make sure it’s a true representation of YOUR goals. Use examples for inspiration but do not try to replace someone else’s goals. Your goals are unique to your life, and a vision board helps you get a clear direction of YOUR personal goals.
Make it fun. Include things that make you happy so your manifestation happens without resistance.
Your vision board should be positive. Keep in mind that the images and words on your board will be a direct reflection of what you attract into your life. So if you are having negative thoughts or struggling with what to put on your action board, it’s only because you’re not completely clear on what to put on your board.
If you find yourself overthinking and becoming trapped, go back to your personal core values and ask yourself what you want to feel in the new year. Then, reflect on all you’re grateful for to put yourself in a good mood. The more positive you are when making your vision board, the better things in life will come to you in the future.
