Visualization is one of life’s most powerful tools. If you haven’t heard of the Law Of Attraction is the ability to attract whatever you focus on. The universe will give you whatever you ask for. Everything is a vibration. Like attracts like. So in simpler terms, if you can visualize it, you can create it. You’ve probably already been manifesting without even realizing it. Ever thought about needing coffee and someone offers to buy you a cup? You probably manifested it. You can manifest more than you could ever possibly dream. That’s where a Vision Board will come in handy.
So what exactly is a Vision Board, and what does it do? Great question. A Vision Board is a collection or collage of pictures, words, affirmations, dreams, and goals. Vision Boards are great because they help you set your intentions and create a clear guide to achieve it.
Do Vision Boards actually work, or is it a waste of time? They absolutely do work. It’s all about the intention behind your goals and what you do to get there. So how do you create a Vision Board?
Step 1: Define your Goals.
What do you want in life, or what do you want to change? How about something easier? What do you want to achieve in the next year?
These are the most common: personal goals, relationships, work, career, education, and health.
Take your time. What do you want out of life? Are you looking for your new career? How about finding your next partner or next great love? Do you want to be healthier? What about taking a vacation?
Your vision board needs to be focused. You can have several different categories of things you want to attract, but you should group them together. Alternatively, you can create a board for each separate topic. For example, you can do one board about your professional goals and another on your personal ones. On my vision board, I focus on four areas: career, health, love, and money. But you can do whatever you want.
Time To Reflect.
Once you pick your categories, break it down even further. Get as specific as you possibly can.

– Jack Canfield
Step 2: Get in the Right Mindset.
Think of all your dreams and goals. Be happy. Don’t go into this with a negative mindset. Remember, like attracts like. When I make vision boards, I light candles and listen to my favorite music. I try to do everything to feel calm and relaxed.
Set the mood. What do you do to make yourself feel inspired? I like watching Ted Talks or videos of people I admire on Youtube. Listening to Podcasts are also great to help you get into the right headspace.

Step 3: Time to Find Inspiration And Get Started.
Gather all your materials. If you’re making a physical vision board, you should have:
- Tons of magazines
- Corkboard, poster board, journal,
If you’re making a digital or online Vision Board, you only need a few things:
- Computer, Laptop, or Ipad
- Canva or Goodnotes
Now it’s time for you to find some inspiration. Find pictures, mantras, words, or affirmations that represent your goals. Find images that speak to you. If there a saying that makes you feel empowered? Cut it and put it on your board.
Some ideas you should put on your board:
- People you admire
- Words of encouragement
- Ideal body type– I’d find people who are toned.
- Words or pictures of places you want to travel to
- Pictures of calm
- Maybe the logo of the company you want to work for
- Happy couples or happy people in general
If you want specifics, I recommend you google whatever you want to attract and print it out. Why just have a picture of a regular house, when you can print a picture of your dream house?
Sometimes, you may not be sure what exactly your dream or goal looks like. That’s okay. Do you have an idea of what you want? For example, if you want love in your life. I would look for images of couples I admire. I would find words that stand out to me regarding love. For example, I would look for words like “relationship goals,” “love,” “dating,” “loyalty,” “passionate.” I would look for things that I truly want as a couple or things that I want in a partner.

Step 4: Placement is Everything.
Time to find a home for your board. You should find a place where you can see your Vision Board every single day. The reason you should put your board in your line of sight is because you should visualize your goals consciously and subconsciously.
I have two Vision Boards. My physical Vision Board is on a shelf next to my bed. I look at it every day when I wake up and before I go to bed. The other is a digital one. I have it as my screen saver on my phone, iPad, and laptop. If you don’t want to make a digital one, take a picture of your board, and save it to your phone. Look at it every day.
Looking at my Vision Board everyday reminds me of what I want to accomplish, why I want to accomplish my goals, and it reminds me to keep going.
Now you need to do more than just look at your Vision Board. Every day you should take time to actually visualize your goal. Start with one group of images and words. Visualize how those images make you feel and how you will feel when you achieve those goals. Use your senses. How does it feel? How does it taste? What does it sound like? How does it smell? What does it look like?
Like attracts like. Visualize your goals with a calm and positive mind. Your subconscious can’t tell the difference between what you imagine and what is real. Aline your vibrations with your goals.
This isn’t something you should only do once. As you grow, your goals and your priorities can change. Evaluate your life and your goals. Be flexible. So when you achieve your goals, set even bigger goals. Dream bigger.
