Create your collage with your computer! If you're like me and on the computer many hours every day, create your vision collage using a word processor like Word or graphic program like Paint. This way, you can use the Internet to gather photos, adjust it whenever you want to, and print as many copies as you need. Having this motivating reminder to achieve your goals on your computer also means you can view it anytime and easily share with friends and family!
When using Word, you can easily size pictures and even use one large scenery photo for your background. Use Text Wrapping: In Front to be able to move pictures around easily. Try Format: Picture Styles for fancy effects!
For various goals in my life I always start with a "Vision Board" A sortof collage made up of photos, pictures (from magazines or elsewhere), key motivational images and words that pertain to the goals I will achieve. Currently I am in the process of recreating myself by the time I turn 60 (in 2 years) and weight loss is a part of that
I made my vision collage on a piece of poster board going the long way. I listed big all my goals on the right in bright fun colors, then on the left all my magazine pictures of my goals. I put a craft magnet in each of the corners and it fits perfectly on the fridge..
It's the first thing I see before I grab anything out of there and you can easily put it on and take it off (i try to when I have company, but most of the time I say whatever, it's my goals. Im not ashamed ) :)
