Ifeoluwa Odunyemi: Having a vison board

Happy new year and I am glad you made it to 2023. I know we have all heard about new year resolutions especially when it is a new year like this. However, I would want us to look at something deeper than the usual resolutions we say and forget after some days into the year and it is what I call-A Vision Board.

To start with, what is a vision?

A vision is a revelation from God, it could be in the form of a dream, trance, or a supernatural occurrence. Also, a vision could also be your aspirations for the future and in this case your aspirations for this new year 2023.

Now that we have an idea of what a vision is, the bible tells us in Proverbs 29 v 18a that “Where there is no vision, the people perish”. It therefore means that anyone going into a new year without a vison is planning to fail. I didn’t say that it is in the bible.

Now you see why you MUST then have a Vison board. Vision boards are one of the best ways to keep your goals, dreams, and aspirations in plain sight for the new year. Creating a new year vision board is a powerful way to visualize all of the things you want to do, be and have in your life. It also serves as a daily reminder of your goals and a great way to hold yourself accountable.

Habakkuk 2 v 2-3 saysThen the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”

The above passage makes emphasis on writing the vision down. It MUST be written down.

Personally, I started the idea of a vision board last year in 2022 and it was quite helpful. I had a template on my laptop named 2022 vision board and on this template, I had my vision separated on the horizontal line into Spiritual, Financial, Career, Family, Health etc  and vertically I had other headers such as Goals, Things that can assist me to reach my goal, things that can affect me not to reach my specific goal, Duration and Progress at the end of every quarter.

You are free to design your vision board anyway that makes it easy for you to track and achieve these goals. Below is an example of my personal vision board.


Please note that your vision board should be the vision you have for yourself, it could be written down manually or digitally. You need to interact with it every time to ensure you are accountable. It is a known fact that when you continue to give your attention to the things you want and you have a visualization of them, you attract those things into your life and what seemed like an impossibility will become your reality.

In addition, it is all about MINDSET. The more you surround yourself and your mind with the things you want to experience , the more you will actually get to experience those things in your life – as so perfectly put in the adage: Energy goes where attention flows.

Prayer without works is dead.

Have a fruitful 2023.

Lots of Love
