Vision Work: Part 2-Using Pinterest as a Vision Board

Posted on Updated on

We have now almost made it through the 1st month of the new year, and if you haven’t already….its not too late to create a VISION BOARD for 2013!

For any new readers/visitors to this blog, I shared one of my Vision Boards and suggested creating these boards to really focus on what I call your VisionWork, back in May of 2011.We are way overdue for re-visiting this habit. Just in case there are new readers who have not done this before, below is a quick description and purpose for vision boards:

What is a Vision Board:

vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal. Literally, a vision board is any sort of board on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life.  It comes from the practice of visualization.  There are so many ways of doing this and tons of resources out there to get you started or keep your creative juices flowing if you are upgrading existing vision boards or making topic based or themed boards for other areas of your life.

What is the Purpose?

Your vision board should serve as motivation, visualization and a focal point that helps you to do the following:

  • Give life & clarity to your vision, dreams or goals
  • Provide you with daily affirmations.
  • Revive your spirit, rejuvenate you and get you excited about your vision!

This time I would like to suggest a fun, more visually appealing and even social way to create your vision board…….use PINTEREST!

Pinterest is one of the latest social media platforms to gain momentum. The thing that distinguishes Pinterest from the other social media is its creative visual display of ideas. You become attracted to it because of the pictures, and each picture is linked to a blog or website. Its awesome!

For those of you who are still fearful of sharing on social media, you can create what is called Secret Boards on Pinterest!

Well, I hope you have been motivated to create a new vision board for the year and to use Pinterest to do it!  Get to work…..share your boards ( if you are so inclined) and Happy Pinning!
