A Visionary Tool: How to Create and Use a Vision Board for Success

Vision Board is a visual tool to help you focus on what you want in your life.  It is a visual “snap shot” of what you want to achieve; your goals, your dreams, your vision.

We have used Vision Boards for a number of years. They have helped us set and reach our goals.

“There are three types of people in this world: those who make things happen,
those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.” 
                                                  –  Mary Kay Ash

We throw a Vision Board Party at least once a year. For our party, we get the following items together:

  1. Poster Boards
  2. Magazines
  3. Scissors
  4. Push pins, thumbtacks, tape or glue sticks
  5. Internet access and printer (optional)
  6. Calendar

We have fun listening to good music as we cut pictures, words, or phrases out of magazines and attach them to our poster boards.  Some of us use a computer and google particular items to print off to put on our boards.  For example, if you want a Red Dodge Charger, you can look up that car, print it and put it on your board.

“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever.”
– Walt Disney

We visit and have snacks, but soon everyone is busy and focused on their board. An occasional “Hey, did anyone see a cruise ship?”

“Oh my gosh, did you see this?”

“Has anyone seen a big house by a lake?” can also be heard over the music and sounds of scissors cutting, or pages being torn out of magazines.

Some Vision Boards are focused on a particular topic; family, business, real estate, relationships, or travel. Other boards are broad in scope including everything that comes to mind.

A Vision Board is a way to put what you want into a visual format.  Dream about what you want: dream big.

“You will never leave where you are until you see where you’d rather be.”
– Unknown

Once we have completed our Vision Board, we make a list of steps to do for each item on our board.

 “Setting goals is the first step in turning invisible into visible.”
– Tony Robbins

To get started on achieving your dreams, create your own Vision Board.  They are a fun and effective way to achieve your goals.

What can you do each day for a month to reach that milestone? Doing something every day gets you results and helps you stay motivated.

What do you have, and what do you need to make your dreams become reality?

Identify where you need help and find the resources you need; on the internet, YouTube, etc.

  1. Write an achievement/to do step list.
  2. Write your to do steps on your calendar.
  3. As you complete your steps on your calendar, check them off as you go.
  4. Add the next steps.

Writing down your action steps will help you plan and make your dreams/visions turn into reality.

Display your Vision Board where you can see it every day and feel inspired! If you like, you can also frame it and hang it on your wall.

Don’t let dream crushers stop you from moving forward.  Select carefully those with whom you share your visions.  Share your visions with people who are supportive.

Your assignment, if you choose to accept it, is to make a Vision Board. Set aside an afternoon or an evening, invite some friends over, or create one on your own.  Follow the steps above and make your Vision Board.  It is a great tool to assist you in living your amazing dreams!

“Where there is no vision, the people will perish.”
– Proverbs 29:18
