Get Inspired with Vision Boards

how to make a vision board

Can you believe it’s already the end of June? We are down to the last half of the year and now is the perfect time to check in with your 2017 goals. I’ve had a pretty productive first half of 2017 but majority of the time I find myself stuck on a creative block. Whenever that happens, I couldn’t bring myself to do anything and that brings out a myriad of negative thoughts like self-doubt and insecurities.

According to the book The Secret, “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.”

Every successful person first had to believe their goals and dreams were possible. I then realized that reaching whatever it is that our hearts desire begins with visualization. That’s where vision boards come into the picture. Steve Harvey himself believes in the power of vision boards: “Man if I didn’t have a Vision Board, I’d be in trouble!”

Creating your vision board is very easy. All you need is a board, (poster board, illustration board, card board, etc. I used a canvas board that I no longer use.) Then, collect photos you find inspiring and will motivate you to reach your goals. Want to lose weight? print out fitspiration quotes. Itching to go on a cruise before the end of the year? Get a photo of your dream destination.


Your vision board can include words that affirm your intentions. The photos I gathered are quotes that will remind me to keep chasing my passions in life whether that’d be writing or venturing into new ones like photography.

Somehow, we must silence that little voice in our head that reminds us of our limiting beliefs and reasons why we will never achieve what it is we want. But that’s why vision boards are important because it contains affirmations that that little voice dreads the most.


These boards evoke feelings of joy, allowing you to shift your energy to a more positive one. They are not only fun to make but they’re very powerful as they teach your subconscious mind that it IS possible for your goals to manifest.

They appeal to both your conscious and subconscious mindset, working its magic into the core of your being and allowing you to steer your life in the direction you choose.


Create your vision board today and live with purpose, passion and optimism!

    Love the idea of a vision board. I have something similar but instead I have a cork board on my wall and I pin things to it that motivate me to keep pushing towards my goals. Your board is amazing looking!

    I like vision boards, but doing one physically can get messy and that agitates me! I like using Polyvore and Pinterest as online alternatives.

    I have always wanted to create a vision board for myself, but every time I sat, I felt like my creativity was so dead that I just couldn’t come up with any ideas. This post has provided me with some foundation here 🙂 Thanks for the help!

    Never really been a believer in vision boards, but this might have helped my impression a bit.

    This is so cute! I am definitely a visual person, maybe I need to make myself a vision board for my office? Not only would it brighten up the place, maybe it will give me some more motivation and inspiration.

    I have my vision board where I can see it every day. I’ve even started seeing some things from it come to life!
