If you have a clear vision of what you want in your life, a Vision Board is a great way to start bringing it to life.  If you’re not sure what you want, it can help you get a clearer picture.  If you don’t know what you want at all, a Vision Board can help you get into action, even if the action is simply considering possibilities.  Either way, vision boards are a powerful way to bring your dreams to life!

Here’s the complete 411 on how to make your own Vision Board!  There are four simple steps:

How To Make Your Own Vision Board?Step 1
Think about the all areas in your life that are important to you. Then think about this year and what amazing things you want to see happen. Take one area at a time. You might start with your love life, then your business or career. Think about your health, wellbeing, and fitness – perhaps one of the pieces of your vision is to transform your body. The next might be in the area of money or your home. Then it could be in the area of making a difference—by your charitable giving, or perhaps you want participate and volunteer, or maybe even start a project and get others to help you. Think about what you want for yourself this year.

Step 2
Set a happy and creative mood. For example, light candles or play your favorite music.

As you’re creating your Vision Board, remember to enjoy yourself! This is you creating your year. Take it on with a sense of fun, excitement, and creativity.

You can make your Vision Board on your own or with your spouse or significant other, or your friends. It’s also wonderful to do this with your children.  You can make individual Vision Boards or make a Vision Board as a family and all work on it together.

Step 3
Next, gather together a pile of magazines that are colorful and have lots of pictures. You’ll also need a pair of sharp scissors, a glue stick and a poster board. Once you’ve gathered these things together, go through the magazines and look for images and words or phrases. They might be exactly what you’re imagining, or they might be representative or symbolic of what you’re imagining. Either way, look for images and words that are meaningful to you. Cut out the images and words or phrases and set them aside.

Step 4
Designate areas on your Vision Board for career, money, home, health, romance, etc.—all the areas that are important to you this year. Place your images and words or phrases on your Vision Board in the corresponding areas. Have fun with grouping them and make your Vision Board interesting, compelling and attractive. Once you’ve filled each of your areas and you’re excited when you look at the entire Vision Board you’ve created, glue down your images and words, and you’re done!

Leave your perfectionist at the door. It doesn’t have to be completely neat, and there is no one way to do this. This is your own design. It only has to mean something to you!  So remember to have fun with it!

How do you make your own Vision Board?

Here’s the recap:

  1. Think about what amazing things you want to see in your life and within the next year. Group what you want into the various areas of your life.
  2. Gather your materials: poster board, magazines, scissors and glue stick.
  3. Create a fun and creative mood with candles and play your favorite music. Invite your spouse, your significant other, your children, or your friends.
  4. Pull out photos, images, and words or phrases from your magazines that represent what you want to have in your life this year. Place them in piles of each area of interest. Designate space on your Vision Board for each of the areas in your life. Cut out the images and words or phrases and place them on your Vision Board in creative ways. When the Vision Board looks inspiring and feels complete, glue your images and words or phrases down.

Once you’ve created it, keep your Vision Board in a prominent place—somewhere you can easily see it each day. This way you will have a visual reminder of your dreams and desires for the year at a quick glance.

Vision Boards are so powerful that you don’t have to work on them every day. Just regularly look at the images on your board as if they are your real life. They will work on you on an invisible, sub-conscious level.

Allow those images to inspire you to take action towards bringing them alive in your life.

Before you know it you will be living the life of your dreams, the life you created in your Vision Board!
