How to create a vision board?

  • The first step is to select images that you can relate to - these can be around nature, food, lifestyles, sports, etc. Then, shortlist images you relate to better. Do not worry about the count, as not all images will go to your financial vision board.
  • Step two is to identify how each image ties to your life goals. You should close your eyes and visualize your goals and note the images that come up. This visualization is the core of creating a financial vision board. Now, try to map the images you have with your goals. 
  • The third step is to arrange your images based on the time and cost of each goal. You will also need cardboard in this stage, along with the marker. The topmost section should have goals that will require the maximum amount of money. The bottom of the board should have goals that can be achieved with little money. Then, look horizontally, the left half of the board should have things you can achieve in a short time, and the right side should have goals that you need to achieve later.
  • The last step is to keep the vision board at a place where you see it - the maximum number of times in a day.
