A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal(s). Literally, a vision board is any sort of board/sheet/page on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in life.

Any Vision is Better than No Vision

As earlier captured in a post about owning a vison board, the importance of drafting a vision cannot be over-emphasized. So, things may seem unclear right now, but I need you to know that any vision is better than no vision.

Still not getting a hang of it?

  • Spend some relaxed time dreaming and imagining
  • Focus on the end result, not the process of getting there
  • Don’t limit yourself by what you think is possible. Impossible is nothing.

As a matter of fact, focusing on the end result is what the Vision board is about.


The very first steps in making a vision board is to make a vision statement which could be general or goal specific. Ensure your goals are SMART

S – Specific

M – Measurable

A – Achievable

R – Realistic

T – Time-bound

i.e, “in 10years from today, I see myself as a CEO, with 2 beautiful kids and a wonderful partner.”

The next thing is to break that vision statement into single identifiable components that make up the overall vision. These are the SMART things you look forward to.

So? What do you want?

Good fellowship with God?

Perfect family?

Great relationships?

Dream Job?

Good health?

Next! Draw pictures that represent your goals and inspire you

You may want to do some cut and paste from Newspapers, Magazines, or the internet. Just pick a picture that represents your desire.

Add inspirational words to your vision board

Adding quotes to inspire you each day is a great way to get started. This will certainly help to apply some basics of positive mindset here.

Remember that your vision board gives you permission to explore, to dream.

Everything on your vision board should have purpose because your vision board helps you when you feel lost.

When confused! Pause, and review your vision

When you feel a part of you questioning the purpose of your life, return to your vision


Your vision board mustn’t look perfect or professional
