Create Your Own Unique Vision Board

$50

Ms. Walker


6-8

Do you have goals, dreams, and aspirations? Put the power of visualization to work to create your own unique vision board with images and words that embody your aspirations and dreams. When creating your vision board, you will provide yourself  with daily reminders of who you are, what motivates you, what makes you happy, and what you hope to achieve. When you display your vision board in a space where you see it often, you essentially end up doing short visualization exercises throughout the day; which will help you achieve your goals.
