MADE INC VISION OF GREATNESS: HOW TO PICTURE YOUR FUTURE MADE By Jasmine Browley If you think vision boards are useless, you’re mistaken. Because...science. Vision boards, based on the law of attraction and the act of visualization, open powerful new pathways of thought and help in the manifestation of goals. Researchers at the National Library of Medicine found that mental practices are almost effective as true physical practice, and that doing both is more effective than either alone. Think of it as a form of ‘mental rehearsal,’ or preparing your mind for the work that’s necessary to achieve your aspirations. CREATING A VISION BOARD 2. GATHER SOME AWESOME IMAGES Some people use the web for images, turning to Pinterest as an alternative to a cardboard layout, but most find it more effective to go through magazines, as physically touching the pages can trigger certain sensories, making the process more fulfilling. Cut out the images and plan their placement. What can a vision board do for you? Among other things, your vision board can evoke important emotions needed to fulfill difficult tasks and ready your subconscious for change. Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink outlines how reading lists of words designed to bring forth a certain feeling such as aggression or cooperation can indeed bring out that emotion without our conscious awareness, even if we know we’re being manipulated. That’s one reason that the usage of words on the boards are important and why it should be kept it where it can be easily seen. CREATING A VISION BOARD 1. PICK A THEME Hone in on a particular set of goals and make your board focus on them. Whether that means titling it “My New Body” or “Career 2017,” being intentional about what you want on your board makes it easier to determine the same for your aspirations. made-magazine.com | 46 MADE INC VISION OF G R E AT N E S S : HOW TO PICTURE YOUR FUTURE MADE By Jasmine Browley If you think vision boards are useless, you’re mistaken.
