Creating your personal collage will help you imagine the the life you want to lead.

Your own creative board is a top way to discover a new path in your life.
Before Barak Obama became president, Oprah Winfrey created a dream board with Obama in the center. Next to his photo she placed an image of the dress she would wear to his inauguration.

Eight Questions to Help You Describe Your Life
Before starting, describe your current life. Prepare. As they say, "Half the fun is getting there!" On a sheet of paper briefly describe the life you want in the future. While you are choosing the images, illustrations and words for your board, keep your future life in mind.
Your vision statement will be driven by your strongest personal values. But what are values? Your values are your beliefs. We all have them, although we might not realize what they are.
The easiest way to know who we are is to check our values from a prepared list. This is a powerful way to get to know yourself. Along with the answers to the questions above, knowing your values will help you create your vision board.
You are almost ready to start your own board! Try this important self esteem activity before starting. Create a wish list.
On a piece of paper, write 10 things you’d like to be, to do or to have. Give your list a title and date. Put the list where you can see it every day. It’s important to look at the list every day because your minute by minute decisions will send you in the direction of your wishes.
I can't say enough how powerful this activity is to make things happen in your life. I've completed three wish lists over the last 20 years and each time 80% of what I wanted to happen has come to be.
This activity will work for you because every second of every day you are making decisions. You usually remember the big ones – deciding to get married, to accept or leave a job, to return to school and so forth.
But, you might not remember the small decisions, the ones leading to the big, important ones. All you need to do it look at your list at least once a day. Just that act of seeing the words for the life you want will help to cement the choices that lead you in the direction of what you wish for.
Do this easy wish list activity as preparation for choosing your vision board images. At the same time you will start making your dreams real with hardly any effort at all!
