I am not saying not to set goals, what I am saying is that goal setting doesn’t work for most people, because most people, just set goals and don’t follow through on them. Usually because they don’t have a clear action plan on specific goals with applied focus and discipline. Unfortunately many people set goals as a new year’s resolutions by simply wishing, then they wait for what they want to just magically show up, know anyone like that? (not you of course).

It is understandable why 92% of the people that set new year’s resolutions do not get any results. But, here is the good news; there is a better way and its vision boards, they are quickly becoming the new age way to set goals and help turn your desires into reality
What is a Vision Board?
A vision board is a visualization tool which refers to a board of any sort used to build a collage of words and pictures that represent your goals and dreams.
They can be bought from a professional supplier or made with cork or poster boards. By placing visual representations of your goals into one space, you can easily visualize them frequently. Remembering to look at them daily and imagine them as if they have already come true is one of the best ways to activate the Law of Attraction
The reason, they are becoming far more popular is because people are beginning to understand the psychological and the universal energy behind them. A vision board is a great mindset shift because it brings your big goals right to the forefront of your consciousness through images of what you want and quotes that connect with.
This sets up you physically and subconsciously. which help you to achieve those goals and desires that you placed on your vision boards.
Too often we set goals that aren’t in alignment with our true desires or we don’t take the time to dig deep and acknowledge what is actually wrong in our lives that we want to change. By focusing on creating a tool to use at the end of your goal setting, you get a much clearer picture and are
First things first: finding what you want to put on your board. You can look for inspiration by flipping through magazines or online at Pinterest or google. Search for dream houses, puppies, body types you would like to achieve, travel destinations, cars, happiness (with smiling faces), peace, healthy living, etc. Take a moment and think about all the things you want in your life, big and small.
Try to think of what matters to you. Where do you want to be in the future? Don’t limit yourself! This is a board for big dreams. Even if it seems unattainable right now, what you want to do is take steps to even see it as a possibility, but you should also include some more short term desires, that can be available within the next 12 months-such as: new clothes, new or better relationships, different car or job.
To make your vision board, you will need Glue, scissors, legal paper, cardboard, gel pens, your photos (images)
Find a base that’s big enough for all your photos. You can use plain legal paper, if you’re going to put your cutouts on a cork board. You can also glue the items right on a piece of thick paper or cardboard, which might be laying around the house, or you can buy it at staples or any office supply store. But you can use whatever works best for you. The great thing about vision boards is they aren’t high maintenance in terms of supplies.
Cut out your photos in creative ways! Don’t make them all the same shape. This will give the board a bit more style, you can out the images and then lay them the way you want before gluing them all down. Bring your personality into it! This is you, your hopes and dreams.
What you want to have and accomplish, its personal so show them in their best light, and remember to place the finish vision board where you will see it consistently. Some people place them in their bedroom, others in the work place. That’s up to you, however it may be a better idea to place it in your bedroom, this way you see it before going to sleep (which can influence your subconscious mind) and after getting up in the morning (which can remind and inspire you for the day).
It’s a good idea to install it as your desktop’s home screen as well. Either way, having and seeing your vision board daily is a much better possibility then simply wishing for 12 goals while ringing in the new year, one for every month, while you eat 12 grapes, because let’s face it what has that done for you lately?
