What Is A Vision Board?

How many of you guys use a vision board? How many of you have never heard of a vision board before? A lot of successful people use them. The movie “The Secret” even has a scene where a gentleman realizes that he is living in his dream house that he put on his vision board years ago. A vision board is a collage of images or phrases that you want to happen in your life. Looking at the vision board will keep you motivated to make those things happen. It will also keep you focused. Below is a picture of my newest vision board.

Nine things came to pass from my previous vision board so I decided to make a new one. I wanted to go bigger this time around. Vision boards are very easy to make. It should generally take an hour to make. Here are a few steps on how to create one.

Step 1

Purchase a poster board.

Step 2

Find pictures that you want to put on it. You can use pictures from magazines or newspapers. You can also print images from the internet. Make sure those images excite you!

Step 3

Arrange the pictures on the board any way that you want to.

Step 4

Glue or tape the images on your board.

Step 5

Post your vision board somewhere that you can see it every day.

There you have it. As you now see, vision boards are very easy to create. Do you have a vision board? Will you be creating one now? Feel free to share any comments you have.

  3. Being a highly visual person, I can relate to vision boards, but having no wall space, I can’t put it on my wall. So I just clip and save the images in a folder and look at them when I need inspiration. Works for me!

  4. I’ve promised myself for a while now that I would do this and haven’t managed it yet (at least not fully). I think 2014 is the year I’m finally going to do it. I know I work better when I clearly articulate my objectives and I’m also a visual person, so time to put the two concepts together. Thank you for the timely reminder and the tips for getting it done. 🙂

    Awesome post, excellent advice, and right on time for me! I actually have been procrastinating on creating mine. I have had all the materials ready and waiting on me for about a month now. Nothing to it but to do it! This article was just the push that I needed.

  6. I’ve had students use a poster board for similar purposes. Now I tend to use Pinterest when I am generating ideas for stories.

  7. I never heard of vision boards, but I do like to have visual images of goals, so maybe I’ll give it a try, but I’m not sure I would want it hanging up for all to see. I also need to explore Pinterest as Jeri suggested.

  8. I remember these. We used to call them dream boards. They were a great tool to help focus an employee/person on what they really wanted or desired in work and home. 🙂

  11. I love vision boards. I use to make them back in the day but never fully knew what they were. Now I have a full understanding of them and I make a new one every year. They definitely keep you motivated and I’m the type of person who has to see what I want everyday.
