If you have dreams and aspirations that you are finding difficult to stick to or difficult to maintain your focus on then a dream board may be the perfect thing for you.

A dream board is a very simple tool that can help you stay on top of your goals and keep your dreams alive. Whether you want to one day be the CEO of a giant company, own a big mansion like John Kleinheinz or even travel to every country in the World, the idea is that you fill your dream board with these aspirations and the visual imagery of the board helps to keep you inspired and driven.

If you like the sound of this then here is how to put together a dream board and make it work for you.

Consider All Dreams

A dream board is not only for the material dreams that you may have, houses, cars, gadgets, it is also for the personal dreams which you wish to turn into a reality. Perhaps you want to some day have a family and a pet dog or a particular job position. If this is the case then you need to find a visual representation for these dreams and stick tit up there on the board.

In Your Face

A dream board will not have its desired effect if it is hidden away in an office and you only happen to see it once or twice per week. If you want the dream board to really work for you then you need to put it in a place that can be seen at all times. Some good locations to consider are by the front door so that you can see it whenever you leave the house, in the bathroom above the mirror so that each time you are there you can feel inspired or even in front of you bed so that you see it every time you wake up.

Tell Your Family

something that the dream board inadvertently brings about is accountability that you are pushing as hard as possible to make you dreams a reality. If you tell your family about your dream board and show them what it is that you are striving for then they will be able to help in keeping you focused should you begin to lose sight of your dreams or not work hard enough to achieve them.

Ever Changing

Dreams are not static and there are many things that happen in our lives which change what it is that we want for the future. In order to keep you energies focussed towards the right place, you should ensure that you alter your dream board frequently so that it stays relevant to what you want. Try to rethink your dream board every 6-12 months to keep it fresh and also to take the opportunity to take stock of what is going on in your life, and what is important to you.
