Vision without ACTION is merely a WISH. Action without VISION just passes the time; but vision with ACTION can CHANGE the world.

The concept of a Vision Board grew more popular shortly after the release of the book and film The Secret in 2006.  The idea of selecting images that represent our desires and collaging them into a board to see them as a tangible representation of our visions through the Laws of Attraction; proved to be very popular with the masses.

What has happened since those early days shortly after the media frenzy surrounding the film and book, is that too many conflicting sources and information led to ineffective vision boards that ended up just being glued pictures with little substance.  What began as a true powerful concept that had been proven through many instances has become distorted and full of mysticism.


By representing your goals with pictures and images you will actually strengthen and stimulate your emotions because your mind responds strongly to visual stimulation…  and your emotions are the vibrational energy that activate the Law of Attraction. The saying “A picture is worth a thousand words,” certainly holds true here.


A vision board is crucial in the journey towards achieving our goals.  The process of visually being able to contemplate our desires awakens a sense of direction that is designed to push us to take the necessary action steps for each particular goal.  We researched the concept of a vision board and will present you with 9 tips to ensure your wall of pictures becomes a powerful tool to help your visions manifest.


Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.

The main purpose of creating a vision board is to simply be able to see your goals in a tangible manner.  Think of it as a bulls-eye on a dartboard.  If you don’t know where to direct your aim you will not be able to know which are the necessary steps to take.  Make sure you state specific goals.  As soon as you begin being detailed oriented your goals will start taking a clearer shape.

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

Each specific goal needs to have a clear deadline.  Don’t make the mistake of establishing a deadline based on the size of the goal. This would defeat the entire purpose of the Law of Attraction.  Take into consideration that your vision board may be able to live forever even though you certainly will not. 


Set a time frame or deadline on your goals, you want to make this time frame realistic, but still put that sense of “hurry and urgency”, on yourself to get it done. Many people create unrealistic time-frames, as a result, this can cause you to set yourself up for failure.

So think hard and take into account how much effort and time you have to focus on your goals daily. Again, be specific with your deadline. For example: if you want to lose weight state how much? 20 pounds, state by when? calculate a date six months from today and set it. Set up a targeted date, and work hard to reach that goal by the established deadline.  


 It is the same concept as if you were to catch a plane. You organize yourself, set up a detailed schedule and plan to make sure you have everything by the time you arrive at the airport. You even allow yourself extra time for those unexpected events and calculate how to solve them and still get to the airport on time. This concept is the same for your goals, apply it!


I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

Your vision board needs to include words that produce positive reactions.  The words you speak have a profound impact in the outcome of your life.  There’s no possible way that by expressing with negative thoughts you will obtain positive results.  Be aware of how you express yourself, how you speak about your life surroundings and what words you tend to use when talking about your goals.

Vision animates, inspires, transforms purpose into action.

Make sure that each picture you select awakens a sense of desire.   Each picture needs to be as specific as possible with the intention for you to create a connection between the visual and the desire.  For instance, if you desire a red car you would not place a picture of a yellow car on your vision board.  The picture would need to be as detail oriented as possible from the make and model to color and specifications.



Vision is not enough; it must be combined with action. It is not enough to stare up the steps; we must step up the stairs

The first action step you need to take is to eliminate every single thing in your life that does not align with the goal you are establishing.  This will be a continuous process which requires you to be objective and focused on the goal itself.  For instance; if you set a goal of losing weight you would need to eliminate everything that would deter you from achieving this particular goal such as junk food and inactivity.  This process is a two part step in which it is not only about removing things from your life, but replacing them with their productive counterparts.  Focus on the things that are within our reach.  The universe is set to take care of those things which aren’t.



I never worry about action, but only about not taking action.

This is not a one time thing.  The process of creating and following a vision board is an ongoing one.  Everyday will be a different day.  As time goes by; the Universe will reveal to you what the next steps are as you continue to take the necessary actions.  The important thing is to continue working towards the achievement of each established goal.



In order to carry a positive action, we must develop here a positive vision.

The placement of your vision board is key.  Your vision board should be designed for your eyes only and does not have to be shared with anyone; especially negative people which will not necessarily understand the process.  Make sure it is placed in a space where you will encounter it daily.

Throughout this entire process you need to ensure that your every thought is aligned with the goals you placed on your vision board.  Whenever you feel you are straying away from your goals, return to your board and take the necessary course of action as soon as possible.


Your vision board needs to be able to help you in living a life with guided purpose.  The world is full of distractions and our minds will have the tendency of lingering between thousands of thoughts a day.  Our emotions constantly change based on our surroundings.  A vision board becomes the key tool that will help us re-focus and get back on track towards our path to success by being a constant reminder of our destination during our journey.  By doing this we will be able to wisely use our time and actions by knowing where we are supposed to be going. 

Make sure you create a clear target and aim towards it!
