10 steps to Create a Winning Vision Board

Earlier this year I facilitated an online training on how to create a winning vision board that gets results. I can attest that if done correctly, vision boards really do work! Since January I have had 3 items from my vision board manifest.

Do you have a vision for your life? What do you want the rest of your life to be like?

One of my favorite quotes by Louise Hay says, ‘Let the rest of your life be the best of your life.’

Take the time to get really clear about what you want in life. Whether you visualize it, write it down, or represent it in pictures in the form of a Vision Board. This is a powerful first step to making what you want a reality.

The idea behind creating a Vision Board is that when you surround yourself with images of who and what you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, or where you want to go, your life will begin to change and reflect those images and those desires. Vision Boards add clarity to your desires and feeling to your visions. I believe it’s one of the most powerful and valuable visualization tools that you can make available to yourself.

Here are my 10 Steps to Creating a Winning Vision Board.

  1. Preparation:
    1. Gather your supplies – a poster board,
      different types of magazines, and glue.
    2. Put on some soft, beautiful, peaceful music.
    3. Take time for clarity and stillness. Sit quietly. Light a candle.
    4. Pray and meditate. Get clear about your intentions for your Vision Board.
  1. Flip and Rip:
    1. Flip through your magazines.
    2. Rip out anything that grabs your attention.
    3. Allow yourself to have fun looking, flipping through and pulling out pictures or words that appeal to you.
    4. Make a big pile of images, phrases and words.
  1. Sort:
    1. Sort through the images.
    2. Lay your favorite images to the side in a pile.
    3. Use your intuition and take notice of any images don’t feel right. Trust yourself enough to set those aside and not use them.
  2. Arrange:
    1. Place the pictures on your poster board. As you do this, you will get a sense of how the board should be laid out.
  1. Types of Vision Boards:
    1. The ‘I Know Exactly What I Want’ Vision Board. Do this board if you’re very clear about your desires, you want to change your environment and surroundings, and there is a specific thing you want to manifest in your life (i.e. a new home, or starting a business).
    2. The ‘Opening and Allowing’ Vision Board. Do this board if you’re not sure what exactly you want, you’ve been in a period of depression or grief, you have a vision of what you want, but are uncertain about it in some way, or you know what you want to change but don’t know how it’s possible.
    3. The ‘Theme’ Vision Board. Do this board if it’s your birthday, New Year’s Eve or a significant event has started a new cycle (divorce, job change, new business).
  2. Paste:
    1. Paste everything onto the board.
    2. Take your time doing this.
    3. Make sure your pictures are near and orderly.
    4. An unorganized, chaotic vision board results in an unorganized, chaotic life.
  3. Decorate:
    1. Add some personality with decorative touches.
    2. Write power words with gel pens or colorful markers.
  1. Add YOU!
    1. Find a fantastic photo of yourself looking radiant and happy and paste it in the center of the board.
  1. Display it:
    1. Place your Vision Board in a prominent place where you can see it often.
    2. Place it in your office.
    3. Hang it on your bedroom door.
    4. Hang it on the wall of your walk-in closet
  1. Act:
    1. Begin to consciously take action in your daily life.
    2. Be open
    3. Listen to your inner guidance.
    4. Keep an eye out for opportunities and move towards them.
    5. Take Chances and be willing to make a few mistakes.
    6. Get an accountability partner, mentor or coach.

Remember… A vision board is a very powerful goal setting/visualization tool that serves as your image of the future. It is a visible representation of where you are going, representing your dreams, your goals, and your ideal life.

Happy Visioning!
