Goals & Vision Boards

January 4, 2023

As we enter a new year, many of us take this time to focus on creating new goals or finding new ways for self-improvement.  Whether you want to improve your career path, focus on your health, buy a new home or start a family there are ways you can approach these goals to ensure they come to fruition.  


Imagine what your life would actually look like if you obtain your goals.  Once you know what you really want your goals to be and how they will make you feel once you have achieved those goals, write them down.  Are you familiar with manifesting what you want out of life?  It can play an important role in your achieving your goals.  That and putting in the work.  

In order to find success in manifesting your goals you will need to set your intention and then believe it will become reality.  Once you have your goals out in front of you you can begin to take the steps to see them through.  One way you can focus on these goals is by creating a vision board.  Or if you don’t feel so comfortable crafting a vision board you can get a notebook and write your goals out.  The key is that once you write out or display your goals you will want to put them somewhere you can actually see them daily to focus on them.  

Vision Boards

Creating a vision board can be a very personal thing.  There is no right or wrong way to create them.  You can build them in various ways.  Here we will share some options for creating your own vision board.

  1. Poster board, display board, or a corkboard
  2. Scissors
  3. Glue or tape
  4. Push pins if you are using a corkboard
  5. Magazine or print out images you have found online

Let’s say your goals include traveling, a new home, and health, also chose a word to focus on for the year like confidence.  You will want to clip out or print images that represent these goals to you.  Select images of where you would like to travel to and what you want your new home to look like.  An example of what may help you to focus on your health is an image of a meal that is healthy and that you would enjoy eating.  Along with images of looking healthy.  Include an image of an activity that you like to do that will help you reach your health goals.  For your word or words, you can clip or print word art of that word – something that will catch your attention.

Digital Vision Board

The digital version of a vision board is pretty much the same concept as the DIY poster board version.  There are different platforms online that you can use to create your digital vision boardPinterest offers various templates for you to choose from.  Take a look online and see which ones speak to you.  

You can also take the route of putting your goals on an app on your phone or jot them down in a notebook.  Whatever route you choose, make sure you look at what you created or wrote down often, daily if possible.  Put your vision board in a location in your home where you are more than likely to see it throughout the day.  If you created a digital vision board, make it your wallpaper on your phone or your computer’s home page.  

Make updates to your vision board throughout the year as needed.  Be sure to take actionable steps in order to achieve the goals on your vision board.  The results of your actions can be better than you ever imagined.
