Upgraded Vision Board

A vision board is fun. You put up pictures of things you want, and pictures of who you would like to become. In addition to the vision board, I have added an extra step in the process.

You will need: A box. Any box will do, and be sure to decorate it to your liking. I stumbled upon this idea while I was putting away my XBOX box (no, that’s not a joke.) XBOX has an achievement feature built into all their games. So, every time you complete a task in a game, you unlock an “Achievement” How does this apply to a vision board? Simple. When you obtain something on your vision board, put it in your “Achievement” box. Then, in six months to a years time, open the box and discover what you have achieved.

Adding your achievement box to your vision board will be both satisfying, and gratifying. We sometimes get caught up in what’s “now”, and we fail to reflect on what we have accomplished. Reviewing what you have achieved can inspire you to think bigger, and have a greater sense of gratitude.

Feel free to post a picture of your achievement box in the comments section.
