The Power of Vision Boards in Personal and Business Growth

As we stand on the brink of a new year, it's an opportune moment to reflect on our goals, dreams, and the path we wish to tread, both personally and professionally. Vision boarding, an increasingly popular and powerful tool, serves as a tangible representation of where we want to go, what we want to achieve, and who we aspire to become. Let's explore the importance of vision boards in shaping our personal lives and business ventures.


What is a Vision Board?

A vision board is a collage of images, words, and pictures or graphics that visually represent the goals and dreams you aspire to achieve. It acts as a daily reminder and a source of motivation, aligning your thoughts and actions with your objectives.


Why Vision Boarding Works:

  1. Clarity of Purpose: Creating a vision board forces you to take the time to specifically define your intentions and goals, providing clarity on what you truly desire in your personal and professional life.

  2. Visual Motivation: Humans are visual creatures. Seeing your intentions and goals daily keeps them at the forefront of your mind, continually motivating you to work towards them.

  3. The Law of Attraction: The practice aligns with the Law of Attraction, which states that essentially like attracts like, we attract what we focus on. A vision board keeps your goals in your line of focus, visualizing yourself already living this life creates a certain frequency that you put out attracting the same back to you making it more likely you'll manifest them.

  4. Boosts Creativity and Positivity: The process of creating a vision board can be incredibly uplifting and inspiring, unleashing creativity and fostering a positive mindset.


Creating a Vision Board for Personal Growth:

In your personal life, a vision board can represent a variety of aspirations - health goals, relationship dreams, personal achievements, travel plans, or even spiritual growth. The key is to choose images and words that deeply resonate with your personal aspirations and dreams.


Vision Boarding for Business Success:

For entrepreneurs and business professionals, a vision board can be a roadmap to success. It can include:
- Revenue goals
- New business ventures
- Professional skills you wish to acquire
- The type of work culture you want to cultivate
- Inspirational quotes from business leaders you admire


How to Make Your Vision Board: 

There is truly no right or wrong way to make this board. There are many different techniques you can use, the main goal is to go through words, graphics and images, and cut out those that make you feel positive, that make you feel inspired, happy, or that showcase the life, circumstance, situation and reality you wish to live in and be a part of.

  1. Gather Supplies: You'll need a board (cork, poster, digital), scissors, magazines or printouts, markers, and glue or pins.
  2. Set Your Intentions: Before you start, take a moment to reflect on your goals and intentions for the new year ahead.
  3. Find Your Images and Words: Look for images and words that align with your goals and inspire you.
  4. Arrange and Attach: Cutout words, and images that speak to you and your intentions for the new year. Layout your images and words before fixing them to the board. It's your canvas, so be as creative as you like!
  5. Display Your Board: Place your board where you'll see it every day.


Incorporating Your Vision Board into Daily Life:

Simply creating a vision board isn't enough. To truly make it effective:
- Spend a few minutes each day looking at your board.
- Visualize yourself already having and achieving the goals/things you have depicted.
- Reflect on the steps needed to realize these goals.
- Take Action. Talk to yourself, see yourself and make decisions as though these things have already actualized in your life. 


A vision board is more than just a collection of images; it's a visual representation of your deepest desires and goals. It serves as a daily reminder of where you're headed, both in your personal and professional life. As we embark on the new year, let's harness the power of vision boards to transform our aspirations into reality.

Remember, the journey towards your goals is just as important as the destination. Happy vision boarding!
