How to Make a Vision Board

In a previous post, I touched on the idea of Visualization. Now I want to put visualization into effect with vision boards. Creating vision boards is nothing new to me. I used to do this throughout college and even won an Excellence in Communication Award for representing ageism and race in a collage (but that’s neither here nor there).

What you need to create a vision board is simple:

  • Magazines (which I am sure many of us have those at our disposal)
  • Poster Board (which you can get for about $1 or less)
  • Glue and Scissors
  • IMG_9846You can spend about 30 minutes to 1 hour looking through magazines. I love to find great words and titles for my vision board. I am always on the search for words like Strength, Freedom, Women, and Travel. I also love abstract and strikingly beautiful pictures; colorful, bright and inspiring. I rip everything that is aesthetically pleasing to me and I put them in a section.
  • IMG_9854When I am done looking through all of my magazines, I start cutting the pictures that I found in the magazines and start placing them on the board. I do not paste yet.


  • Once I have an idea of how the board is going to look, I start pasting the base of the board with the pictures that I found. I then follow up with the words and quotes that I found. I let the glue on the board dry and voilà, the vision board is  complete. If you want you can frame it or find a good place in your home where you can look at it everyday.
