Revealed: Answers Top 3 Vision Board Questions
By Joyce Schwarz, joyceschwarz(at)gmail.com
One of the reasons that I wrote The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life was to dispel
any superstition or Â‘woo Â–wooÂ’ thinking about creating vision boards. ItÂ’s my belief a vision board
can be one of the most effective life planning techniques that youÂ’ll ever discover.
In my experience in more than 50,000 hours of personal coaching for 5,000 individuals from 76
different vocations in life ranging from astrologers to zoologists (really, I worked as an advisor for the
San Diego Zoo for a year), IÂ’ve found that itÂ’s the attitude not the aptitude that really matters in
getting and changing a job or career and creating income streams to support your lifestyle and family.
I know that some of you are just beginning to explore the power of vision and visioning, so I decided
that one of the best posts I could write this week is to answer the top three inquiries about Vision
Boards. Chances are that your question may be resolved in the answer to this top 3. If not, be sure to
message me or post what you want to know in the comments section of this post and IÂ’ll answer the
first 10 questions personally! Promise.
ANSWERS TO TOP THREE QUESTIONS ABOUT VISION BOARDS
1. WHAT IS A VISION BOARD?
A vision board is a visual map that you create using images, words and quotes that you cut out of
magazines or other printed matter and paste to a poster board like a collage. Vision Boards can also
be designed using special digital software and Facebook apps. Vision boards are also known as
Â‘dream boards, Â‘wish boards, Â‘treasure maps, Â‘life collageÂ’ and Â‘wisdom collagesÂ’
2. ARE VISION BOARDS JUST A HOCUS POCUS FAD?
Vision Boards date back to the cave man era, where prior to the season, hunters drew drawings of
Buffalo they Â‘envisionedÂ’ bringing home to feed the family.
Today, vision boards are used by such mainstream groups as the United Nations, the World Bank and
Vista to help Third World people plan the next stage of economic development to make their lives
Vision Boards are used by churches, schools and ArizonaÂ’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio even uses vision boards
in his prison. Oprah revealed on a New York radio station that she created a vision board for
President-elect Obama that included a picture of her inaugural gown. Vision Boards have been
featured on such TV shows as Â“Larry KingÂ’, Â‘OprahÂ’ and Â‘EllenÂ”.
3. SHOULD I CREATE MY OWN VISION BOARD or should I do it with my husband/spouse or
If youÂ’re asking that question, my gut tells me that you may be best designing your own vision board
first and then creating a couples vision board together. DonÂ’t forget that it takes two to make a
couple. ItÂ’s crucial to honor your own identity, dreams and visions. You can also create a vision
board with your family too. Perfect for this month, is a Gratitude Board to give thanks for all that you
do have in your life and home.
