What Pinterest Can Do For Deliberate Creators
Up until this week, I’d managed to ignore rave reviews about Pinterest, the virtual pinboard that lets you post your favorite things from the web.
The last thing I needed was another online distraction.
Turns out I almost missed a brilliant approach for successful manifestations!
Pinterest’s mission is to:
connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.
… which sounds appealing enough.
But when a fellow coach said she uses Pinterest as a vision board (and encourages clients to do the same), I took notice!
Pinterest allows you to create and customize your own boards, on whatever themes light you up. You’ll find lots of style and decor boards, along with jewelry, hobbies, books, etc.
But for those of us who never get around to cutting and pasting images from magazines to a vision board at home, Pinterest may be just the answer!
For example, a fellow creator has a board called “My Very Cool Life” filled with gorgeous photos of the ocean, sailboats, the beach, and tropical palm trees.
(Coincidence that she recently became the proud owner of her own sailboat? Deliberate creators know better.)
I haven’t created my Pinterest vision board yet (although I’ve got a couple vibe-lifting boards organized), but I’ll be keeping my eyes open for photos, videos, and such that represent what I’m calling forth.
In the meantime, peruse these boards by your fellow deliberate creators:
- Jeanna Gabellini (love the title of her board: “Universe Will Arrange This 4 Me”)
- Louise Edington‘s well titled: Vision Board
- Laura Gevanter’s Dream Home
- Jackie Gaston (Places I’d Love To See)
- Tia Sparkles (Me & My Life – Vision Board)
If you’ve got a pinterest board you’d like to share, please share the link in comments!
