Directions for Creating the Visual:
Step one: Choose a motivator from the “My Major Motivation Points” above and locate a picture or pictures that symbolize the motivation point (You can repeat this process for more motivators).
Helpful tips on finding visuals:
Most important is that the visual captures the essence and meaning of the motivating message to you.
Good sources for finding pictures are family album, yearbooks, magazines, newspapers, the internet and hand drawn images.
Step Two: Write a caption for the picture(s)
Helpful tips on writing captions:
Think about the emotions behind the picture, how you felt at the moment is was taken or the first time you saw it.
You can use your own words for the caption or an inspirational quote.
Step Three: Print off the template sheet below and assemble your Visual Motivation.
Helpful tips on assembling your Visual Motivation:
Use one picture or make a collage of pictures. You can also use more than one caption, space permitting.
Be sure to have your motivation description written on the page.
The template below can be used as a guide but you can easily create your own on heavier or more decorative paper.
There is a sample of a completed Visual Motivation sheet below.
Remember to put these Visual Motivations where you will see them every day! Good places are the fridge, the bathroom mirror and your night stand!
