How to Enhance the Effectiveness of your Vision Board

You’re probably familiar with the concept of the Vision Board, especially if you’ve seen “The Secret” DVD or follow teachers like Jack Canfield and John Assaraf. If not, a VB is a collage of photos, magazine clippings of images pinned to a cork-board, that represents what you want to be, do and have. Perhaps you are already using one to remind yourself of the goals and dreams you are aiming for.

I’ve had a few boards over the last couple of years, and needed to update them often. I’ve quickly gotten what was pinned on the board, or achieved what the picture represented.

Here’s a super-quick tip to enhance the effectiveness of your VB ten-fold:

First, make sure there is a picture of you right in the center of it. This serves to strengthen the association between you and your goals. Then, take a snapshot of your board and print it out small size. Write your main goal or vision on the back, and stick it in your wallet or pocket. Every time you go to pay for something or grab your keys you see it and are immediately reminded of your goals and passions and you quickly refocus on what you want. Pretty soon, you will be filled with the powerful emotions those images inspire the instant you look at them.

This kind of visual reinforcement is so much more effective than trying to “talk yourself up,” as when reciting positive affirmations.

The collage board “works” by reinforcing the goal images in your mind and stirring feelings of passion, joy, excitement (and whatever other emotions you wish to associate with your images). It is a great tool to enhance the power of focus.

If you’re not already using a vision board, I highly recommend it. A cork-board, some thumb tacks, a printer and you are away!

    Doskonałe, że ktoś w końcu poświecił czas,
    aby opisać to zagadnienie.

    I created a vision board about two years ago. I had lost my job, house, and car. I put only a few pictures on it, the important things I wanted to achieve…with people that look like me. Everything on my VB became a reality!!! Now that I have achieved everything I wanted, I’m at a point where I need to make a new one. I prayed over my board and spoke scripture from the Bible over it. This time I will include the suggestions from this article!

    • Jim Jan 31, 2013 @ 7:08

      Christy, well done!

      What you created illustrates perfectly the power of the vision board. It all comes down to how you focus your mind. And by looking at a board every day, you’re able to put conscious and unconscious focus into those things.

      I recommend everyone do this.

  • lzj Apr 3, 2012 @ 8:42

    so let me ask you this…when you’ve accomplished something on your vision board, do you take it down and replace it with another? or do you leave it on there always. My “fear” is that if I take it down it will go away 😉 (for example., a goal is to lose weight and now I’ve lost weight, do i take that down and put up another or will I gain the weight back..?)

    • Jim Apr 3, 2012 @ 8:53

      This is a great question. My preference is to take it down triumphantly. I’ve achieved that thing, now it’s a part of me.

      But in the case of weight loss, you might want to take a photo of yourself now, and put that up. Instead of representing weight loss though, it represents good health and fitness for you. So you see that and think of health and feeling good – nothing to do with weight.

      Congratulations on getting yourself to where you want to be. Make sure you celebrate your success!

      • lzj Apr 3, 2012 @ 9:17

        GREAT idea! I am thinking I’ll keep a scrap book of my accomplishments as I take them down. I love this stuff. Thank you so much for your response.

        • Jim Apr 3, 2012 @ 14:03

          You’re welcome. This is where I live, so if you have any comments or questions, let me know.

          Great idea with the scrapbook too, imagine flicking through it looking back on so many great achievements 🙂

      • Michael Apr 4, 2012 @ 22:42

        To lzj, You can create a success or achievement book/box and place all your achievenent pictures in it. This also keeps your confidencs and belief up and growing.

        • Jim Apr 12, 2012 @ 22:31

          So true 😀

  • Satya Jan 24, 2012 @ 15:55

    Great idea, sounds good!! I am going to do it.

  • Gillian Jan 10, 2012 @ 11:44

    I made my vision board 2 yrs ago when I was down on my luck and living with my sister in a town I absolutely hated! (but had no choice, no job, no money)…everything is starting to manifest..I made mine red to attract and trimmed it in gold…I had so much fun making it..every morning every night before bed I send it power….and I have it saved on my cell phone as the wallpaper, so I see it every call I make….and I am now self employed…which was my goal…running 2 business’s that in the next year will produce a healthy income….we literally create our world…every minute by what we hold in our thoughts…everyone that comes in my house comments on it and always get close to get a better look…thanks for letting me share…..Namaste!!!

    • Jim Jan 12, 2012 @ 20:35

      Fantastic example of really using your vision board effectively. I love the idea of putting on your mobile phone screensaver. And sending power to the board really gets your mind focused on what you want. Well done on your success 🙂

  • Raul Jan 10, 2012 @ 11:43

    Thanks for the Idea! Love it and I am going do it… 🙂

  • Annie Jan 10, 2012 @ 11:43

    The Vision Board helps you establish, visualize and actually reach your most important goals and desired outcomes

  • Mark Jan 10, 2012 @ 11:42

    Great ideas! I’ll definitely implement them. Makes total sense to put a picture of yourself in the middle!

    • Jim Feb 5, 2012 @ 20:28

      Putting the picture in the middle is a real emotional hook that welds you to the things that you want. Love it 🙂

  • Angela Jan 10, 2012 @ 11:42

    I haven’t seen The Secret, but learned this technique back in the early 70s from my mother. Love it! Thanks for the ideas for taking it mobile.

  • JiMpiSh Jan 10, 2012 @ 11:41

    I remember when I was younger my mom used to do vision boards at her potlucks! Thanks for reminding me of these! I think it would be a fun project for the family! Nice way to help the kids focus more on their goals!

    • Jim Jan 12, 2012 @ 20:37

      Very fun for the kids — we all know what powerful manifestors they can be!

      • renna Apr 21, 2013 @ 10:37

        I love this site. This has given me so much hope to make vision board on losing weight. I have pictures of ladies who are slim.

        on money,

        on peace, happiness. meeting people in my life.

        I do not know how to do this, please can you help me. shall i make a few boards for each category.

        Thank you for your help.


        • Jim Apr 23, 2013 @ 22:22

          Hi Renna,

          The best thing I can suggest is to keep it simple.

          I have two ideas for you. 1) Make your vision board solely for weight-loss. Or should I say ‘ideal weight attainment,’ or ‘healthy body attainment?’ Put your fav picture of yourself in the middle, and your goal pics around. Choose shots that make you feel good, make you feel like “I got this,” “it’s a done deal,” “I am doing this!”

          2) Make one vision board only, but have one or two pics from each category. One for each category; health, spirit, relationships, finances, etc.

          Choose the first if you want to really kickstart your health, and give it more focus. Or perhaps you could do that first and then as you achieve that, transition into the second idea. Maintain health, and achieve the other things too.

          Let me know how you go! All the best 🙂
