My vision for a new year
Hey Y’all Hey!
Kijan Ou Ye! How You Doing?
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a visual representation of your goals. Most people create a vision board yearly or quarterly to meet their goals. It is a collage of images and words that are important to achieving your goals and reminding you on a daily basis of your WHY. It should be filled with things to inspire and motivate you to stay disciplined.
When thinking of what to add to your vision board, you should answer the following questions:
- What is my WHY?
- What brings me joy?
- What are my long and short term goals?
- What are my strengths?
- What do I like to for fun?
- What is something new I want to try?
- Am I happy where I am in life?
- What am I passionate about?
- What am I thankful for?
The first time I created a vision board was back in 2019 and I was able to create a physical one and hang it up in my bedroom. A lot of people ask, does creating a vision board work? In my opinion, it does. Writing down your goals so that you can visualize them on a daily basis is key to putting in the work to see your vision come to life.
A vision board will only work if and when you do the work.
Oh and please let’s not add unrealistic goals that we know we cannot meet and then beat ourselves up for not meeting them!
How to create a digital vision board
For 2021, I wanted to create a vision board that I could refer to on the go. So I decided to create a digital vision board using Canva. Creating a vision board on Canva is super easy.
I decided to choose a design from the Mood Boards Photo Collage
Find pictures for your vision board. Since I have Canva pro, I just used their photo library. However, you definitely can get images and quotes from Pinterest and Google images.
Arrange the pictures however you want!
Once you have your board with all your visuals, save and keep it as your wallpaper on your phone. You can also print several copies to mount wherever you want so that you can continually reference back to it and adjust it when necessary.
Here is a sample of my Vision for a New Year!
When you put your attention on something, you experience more of it!
Are you planning on making a vision board for 2021?
Until the next post…
Live with purpose, Love with passion, Laugh with pleasure

Love this! I have 2 vision boards that I rotate on my desktop, they inspire me and keep me motivated. It’s a great way to stay positive and focused! Thanks for sharing.
I had no idea that I could create a virtual vision board on Canva – this is amazing! Thanks for sharing your tips! Hoping to accomplish my 2021 goals with this!
Thanks for sharing your vision board tips! I have never done one before, but I know this is a perfect time to try! (and then put in the work to accomplish it!)
I created my vision board specifically for my blog and I loved it. It is hung on my bedroom wall and I love seeing it everyday which gives me motivation to keep being consistent.
Thank you so much for the tip on digital vision boards. I started mind mapping because, vision boards became too time consuming. I always wanted to create one but don’t want to do it the old fashion way, with magazines and glue sticks. Ugh! I never considered a digital vision board, thank you for sharing! Although its digital do you ever print/ hang your digital vision boards?
I’ve never done a vision board, though they intrigue me. Your explanation on how to create one makes it leas daunting!
I love vision boards I remember doing these as a teenager in the 80’s before they even had a name, but it was about calling what you wanted to you, and providing yourself a path of goals.
Love your vision board idea! These are such insightful questions! Happy new year!
