As you cultivate your attitude of gratitude, most certainly you will start to have some new ideas about your ideal life and a picture might be forming of what you would like to create, see more of and achieve. 

A vision board can be a fun and powerful tool for focusing on the things you want in your life. It becomes a visual roadmap of the life you desire. 

There are no rules about how to create one. You might make a physical board and cut out pictures or words that resonate with you, or use an online website like Pinterest where you have access to all the images on the internet and can even share it with friends. 

However you do it, the best way to keep on track is to put your board somewhere where you see it daily, whether that is in the dining room or as your computer homepage. 

In the same way advertisements rely on repetition to get you to buy a product, the repeated exposure to aspirations and positive messages will do a lot of the hard work for you. 

Now that you have well defined goals, your mind will unconsciously find a way towards them. You’ll be surprised at how easy some of them come now that you know what you want. 

Remember to give gratitude for all you have and enjoy the journey towards the things that you want to see.
