How to make a vision board

How To Create A Vision Board

In the past, I have created a vision board, but I would typically just throw up pictures of pretty houses and closets and purses. Nothing meaningful with genuine goals. This year, that changed. 

Here are the steps I took:

 

Step 1: Clarity

  • I asked myself a few questions to get clear on my priorities.

YOUR TURN! Ask yourself:

  1. What do you value most in your life right now?
  2. List your top 3 priorities – areas you are unwilling to compromise NO MATTER WHAT.

During this step, I looked into how I would spend my time if money or time were truly not an issue. Ask yourself the following:

  1. What dreams would you go after?
  2. Who would you spend your time with? What would you be doing together?
  3. Would you travel? If so, where?
  4. How would you live your life day to day differently?
  5. How would your most courageous self show up to life differently?

Step 2: Categories

I divided my life into 8 categories and wrote generic goals in each area. I tried to be as specific as possible, but don’t stress about this right now. You will get more specific in step 3.

Categories:

  1. Spiritual
  2. Health
  3. Financial
  4. Career
  5. Family
  6. Marriage / Romance
  7. Personal Growth
  8. Experience / Joy

For example, in this step, for spiritual I wrote: “grow my relationship with God.” In step 3 I got specific and wrote, “I am diligent in having my quiet time 5x a week.” Another example is in financial, where I wrote, “build up our savings nest”. In step 3 I wrote, “We have $100K in our savings account.”

Step 3:

Write down goals out of each category from step 2 as specific as you can and in the present tense – as if you have already completed it. I am going to share my specific goals with you, so you can see how they align with the photos on my vision board.

  1. Spiritual

  • I am diligent about having my quiet time 5x a week. 

  1. Health

  • I eat foods that bless my body 90% of the time.

  • I am continuing to exercise for strength, vibrancy and energy! 

  1. Financial

  • We have $100,000 in our savings account.

  1. Career

  • Loy and I have written our book called “Good is Cool”

  • Loy and I have recorded and posted 100 episodes in our Clearly Confident Podcast.

  • 10,000 Daily Deposit journals have been sold.

  • I have hired my 2nd full-time employee to take things off of my plate.

  • Loy and I have trained 12 businesses in Clearly Confident.

  • I am a 2 Star Rank.

  • Loy and I begin our Clearly Confident tribe leader program. 

  1. Family

  • Austin and I take 3 weekends to go on getaway trips.

  1. Experience / Joy

  • We go to St. Lucia for vacation.

  • My home gym is exactly how I want it.

  • My dining room is furnished perfectly.

Step 4: Create Your Vision Board

If you want to get the poster + glue + glitter out, girl do it! I’ve done that before. This year, I wanted to do it virtually so I could make multiple copies to put in my office, bathroom, and maybe even a small version in my car? Who knows! For an online vision board, you can easily use picmonkey.com or canva.com. I used Canva because it is free and SO easy! To make your vision board on Canva, use the custom dimensions button and plug in 3300 X 2550. This will make a landscape 8.5 X 11 sheet for you!

Here is a quick video showing you how to use the basics of Canva:

My advice? Start on it, then come back to it for a couple of days. You will find that more things come to mind. You can easily go back and edit anytime throughout the year as you accomplish things!

HERE are some printable worksheets to guide you through making your Vision Board. Be sure to share your progress and finished product with me on Instagram (@macymcneely).
