Vision Board

Having a hard time achieving your goals? Looking for a creative and fun way to mind map your life?! Here’s your answer! Get those old magazines out, a pair of scissors , some glue and a card board!



A vision board is a visual interpretation of the things you wish to achieve. why make them visual? because once you have them in a physical form in front of you you become responsible for them!

It is typically a poster board on which you paste or collage images that you’ve torn out from various magazines. The idea behind this is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, or where you want to vacation, your life changes to match those images and those desires.

Getting started:

Get your thoughts together; start thinking how you want your career to evolve, are you looking for love, how does your dream home look like ect…. Imagine all the details , the smells, the feelings and emotions, the colors and more and now BELIEVE you are already there! The simplest way to make the law of attraction work for you is by believing that you have your dreams in the now!

The Four Steps of Creating a Vision Board:

 1: Go through your magazines and tear the images from them.  Just let yourself have lots of fun looking through magazines and pulling out pictures or words or headlines.

2: Go through the images and begin to lay your favorites on the board. Eliminate any images that no longer feel right. This step is where your intuition comes in. As you lay the pictures on the board, you’ll get a sense how the board should be laid out. For instance, you might assign a theme to each corner of the board. Health, Job, Relationships…

3: Glue everything onto the board. Add writing if you want

4: Hang your vision board in a place where you will see it often.

  2. Hi Helwi 🙂

    I really believe that vision boards will help us achieve us dreams 🙂

    From a psychological perspective, a vision board works by stimulating the reticular activation system, or RAS, which is an information filtering system in your brain. Once you hold an image in your mind, you program your RAS to search for it among all the information coming to you from the world. For example, have you noticed that when you decide on the kind of car you want, you begin to see it everywhere? That’s why.
