We all have dreams, big dreams, dreams of how we want our future to be, dreams of our future car, apartment, house. Having a dream is a big step toward accomplishing it. One thing that you probably didn't know is that the visualization of those dreams will give you more drive towards achieving them.

Vision Board

I had my first vision board, a few months ago and I thought I will make it a habit to create a new vision board on my every birthday, that is I will evaluate my last vision board and re-create another one. Having a vision board has been a constant reminder of what I got to achieve and motivates you towards turning your dreams into a reality.

What is a Vision Board?

A vision board also known as a dream board is a board of any sort used to build a collection of words and pictures that represent your goals and dreams.

By putting a vision board somewhere you can see it every day, you will always get reminded of what you have to achieve, and so it will motivate you to do whatever it takes to get there.

Creating a Vision Board

There are two basic types of vision boards, a physical vision board, and a digital vision board. 

If you prefer tangible stuff, then a physical vision board is for you. My first and only vision board was physical board and I made it on my own which I recommend because it's just a simple process.

But with the ongoing trend in technology, you can create a digital vision board using tools like canva , the benefit of this type is that it's more flexible.

  •  You can have more than one vision board for a different set of goals (personal, career goals).
  • Make your vision board simple and clear for maximum focus.
  • Make it a habit to check your vision board before you go to sleep, and as soon as you get up in the morning.

Steps For Making A Vision Board 

These steps apply to both physical and digital vision boards.

  1. Create a list of goals you’d like to achieve in a certain period of time ( in a year span, 5-year span ).
  2. Find pictures that represent your goals and inspire you. You can get these online. I highly recommend Pinterest for beautiful images.
  3. Print them for a physical board, or save them for a digital board.
  4. Add motivational “affirmation words”, quotes that will highly motivate you. Print or write them down for a physical board.
