In the dark back rooms of travel agencies all across Australia and beyond stands the REAL secret to every top selling agent’s success, and it’s a secret most would rather keep to themselves.

And no, I’m not talking about the store fridge fully stocked with Coronas, a couple of bottles of whites, and a six-pack of Jim Beams and Cola! Although that one appliance does do wonders for coping with a hard day as you all know…

No, I’m talking about those vision boards that, yes, may feel all new age-y and hocus pocus and all that, but seem to actually work. Don’t believe me? Then ask around at your next work awards night and see just how many winners use them.

Even Sir Richard Branson is a fan of the vision board…

Strategically placed vision boards (strategically as in a place where you’ll see it often) means you’ll essentially end up doing short visualisation exercises throughout the day, which according to the Law of Attraction helps bring whatever is on your board into your life.

But hey, even if you’re not convinced, why not give one a go and see whether it actually works?

With that in mind, here’s how to create the perfect travel agent-orientated vision board for your agency back room.

 

1. DEFINE YOUR GOALS

How much money do you actually want to make? Where do you want to go? What kind of lifestyle changes are you hoping to make? What about going to Global or winning that [INSERT AMAZING FAMIL HERE] trip you’ve always wanted to go on.

Whatever your goals, dreams, or hopes, be as specific as possible.

Spend time getting crystal clear on exactly what you want your life to look like in the next 12 months. If you dream of going to Global, put n

 

2. FIND THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PICTURES OF YOUR GOALS

Use some of last season’s brochures or flick through magazines at home and find the most beautiful representation of the goal/dream/hope you’re trying to manifest in your life.

The more striking the image, the more it will leave an impression on your subconscious mind and the more it will inspire you. If you dream of attending Global next year, find the most gorgeous picture you can of the host destination. If you hope to bring that six-pack out under that layer of belly fat and into the world, flick through some fitness magazines and find an image that inspires you.

In terms of your monetary goals, cut own numbers that represent that figure.

 

3. PUT IT ALL TOGETHER IN A BEAUTIFUL COLLAGE

Now the time to get creative! Go to your local newsagency and buy a large piece of stiff paper and some glue, or a cork board with some pins. Then organise your pictures in a beautiful collage.

It also helps to incorporate some affirmations and inspiring expressions that you can scatter across your board, as well as putting up pictures of people that inspire you in general, such as Richard Branson, Beyonce or even Skroo!

 

4. TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO CONTEMPLATE THE BOARD EACH DAY

In the morning whilst waiting for the kettle to heat up the water, turn to your vision board and take it all in. Absorb all the images, affirmations and expressions and just breathe.

Feel yourself in the future you have designed and believe it is already yours.

The more times during the day you turn to your vision board the more it will start having an effect on your life. Even just glancing at it every now and then during the day will get the cogs of the universe working in your favour.

Don’t believe any of this? Well just try it and see!
