Ever since the movie The Secret was released
vision boards have become a popular tool for attracting prosperity, goal
achievement, and living the life of your dreams but fitness vision boards have
been around much longer than the dream life vision board John Assaraf talked
about in the movie.
I made my first vision board when I was 16! My fitness goals then were not much different than they are now but my tools and strategies for creating one have improved and improved my results too.
A vision board is simply a visual and/or physical representation of what you envision yourself having or being and it works by creating a powerful imagine in your mind of what you want for yourself.
According to John Assaraf author of Having It All, "our job as
humans is to hold on to the thoughts of what we want, make it absolutely clear
in our minds what we want, and from that we start to invoke one of the greatest
laws in the Universe, and that's the law of attraction.
You become what you
think about most, but you also attract what you think about most."
Creating a vision board makes it easier to envision the better body that you want simply because it teaches you to seek out images that have meaning to you and that represent your unique fitness and fat loss goals. When you identify the right images your mind has no choice but to find a way to make those images become reality.
A visualization board can be a collage of images, quotes, and words mounted onto a poster board. It can also be created with graphics on a computer. It can even be created with special software or using a website that allows you to clip and paste pictures onto an online canvas. My online vision boards are an example of a digital vision boards and they even have music attached to them. How you create your board is actually less important than the images you use and what those images bring into focus for you.
Creating a vision board might seem like a no-brainer: find images of bodies you like then paste them onto your canvas and place your face in there somewhere right? Not exactly. Creating a vision board that will work involves a little more effort than this.
According to Martha Beck author of The Joy Diet " a board devoid of real purpose and emotion is unlikely to attract much of anything except dust on a shelf." Her suggestion is to stick with images that make you feel positive, joyful, and excited about your goal. In this case your goal is your best body ever, so take the time to find images that represent what that means to you.
As you can see in my vision boards there are many images of dancers doing amazing things with their bodies because that is what I want to be able to do with my body. All of them have fit lean toned dancer body that is a goal of mine but that is secondary to what they are doing with their bodies.
best body ever boards should include any images that will support your goal and that elicit the feelings you want to feel when you reach your body
goals as well. The more your images make you feel as though you are already at
your best female figure the better results you will get from your fitness vision boards.
