But wait, what goals should you be making and how do you make them happen? The answer depends on you. What do you want to attract in your life in 2024?
However, if you’re unsure, then maybe we can help you create the best vision boards 2024 by presenting the top 6 personal life goals people have for the year.
For this article, we’ve done our research and discovered statistics data showing the 5 most important personal life goals, as well as one goal that is on most people’s minds for 2024.
6 OF THE BEST PERSONAL LIFE GOALS CATEGORIES BASED ON DATA FROM STATISTICS
We created this list based on a Gallup research that aimed to study goal-setting trends for the year 2023. The study discovered that 7 out of 10 adults plan to set goals for themselves at the start of the year, and the data results are as follows:
- 80% of the respondents reported personal health and fitness as their goals for 2024
- 69% reported making financial goals
- 59% said they wanted to make career goals
- 40% reported relationships and family goals
- 30% reported creating spiritual goals
The study revealed that the #1 goal for adults in 2024 was health and fitness, focusing on losing weight, exercising more, and having healthy lifestyle choices.
This is followed by financial goals, then career and personal development goals, followed by social life and relationship goals, and lastly, spiritual or self-awareness goals.
We also added one more goal to the list, which we will explain later.
Here are the 6 personal life goals adults are planning to achieve in 2024:
HEALTH AND FITNESS
A Statista Global Consumer Survey in 2023 also revealed similar numbers in terms of creating new goals for the year.
Here are the results of the survey:
- 52% of people who said they wanted to make health and fitness goals wanted to exercise more
- 50% reported wanting to eat healthier
- 40% said they wanted to lose weight
Data shows that the majority of adults want to exercise more, as well as eat healthier, and lose weight. If you haven't taken care of your body in the past year, then maybe this is the year to do so.
Create a health and wellness vision board for 2024, focusing on doing more exercise, creating healthier food choices, or losing weight if you feel like you need to. We’ve written several blog posts about making vision boards regarding these topics, which contain plenty of practical and scientific advice on achieving these goals.
In the same Statista survey, 40% of the respondents reported wanting to save more at the start of the year. And the Gallup study revealed that 59% of adults plan to make financial goals for 2024.
The numbers show that financial goals are one of the most important personal life goals for adults, and it goes to show how important money is in our lives. Create a financial vision board for 2024 by making goals to save, invest, create a budget, or attract a certain amount of money.
We’ve also written several blogs about this vision board category, such as a board focused on financial freedom, as well as financial affirmations.
Third on our list is career goals and personal development. A career is something that gives you purpose, and a calling and provides you with a stable and fulfilling life. If a promotion, attracting the job of your dreams, or improving your skill sets gives you the happiness you are looking for, then a vision board dedicated to improving your career is what you need for 2024.
Here’s a great article we’ve written on how to attract the career of your dreams with vision boards and the Law of Attraction.
RELATIONSHIPS AND SOCIAL LIFE
Having a supportive social network is believed to be one of the keys to happiness. The sense of belongingness, having emotional support, and living life shared with people you love are the hallmarks of a life well-lived.
Make a relationship and social life vision board for 2024 and include images of happy couples, friends, or even a happy family.
If you want to attract a soulmate, get married, or find love, we’ve got great articles talking about how to make these specific categories for vision boards, and you can find them here and here.
Connecting to a higher power is deemed a life goal for 30% of the respondents in the Gallup study we mentioned earlier. Spirituality can mean connecting to the divine, having a better relationship with your religion, or being more in tune with yourself and your beliefs.
Create a spirituality vision board for 2024 if this is one of the things you want to improve in your life for the year.
We wanted to include travel as part of the best categories for making a 2024 vision board because we found data that shows more and more people are planning on taking trips and vacations for the year.
A report by the Allianz Vacation Confidence Index shows that $124 billion was spent on travel in 2023, and experts believe 2024 will even see a new record of what is called the “Pandemic Revenge Travel.”
It is called such because it is believed travelers are using it to “get back” at COVID for keeping them trapped indoors during lockdowns.
In a survey by OnePoll for YMT Vacations, data shows that 3 in 10 people are planning to become “experienced travelers” in 2024, with 51% of these travelers planning on “relaxed vacations,” with the top 3 destinations being Mexico, France, and Canada.
If your feet are itching to get on the travel bandwagon for 2024, now is the perfect time to create a vision board for your travel goals. We’ve also written a great travel vision board blog, which you can find here.
Making a vision board from scratch can be tasking: you need to collect magazines, look for images, cut out pictures, and buy craft supplies. All the work can hinder you from getting started on your vision board journey. And that is why you need something easy, convenient, but most of all, effective in helping you set your intentions into the Universe.

TIPS TO ACHIEVING THESE GOALS
“Setting goals is the first step in taking the invisible into the visible.”
Setting goals is the first step to making your 2024 better than the year before, but making vision boards is only one of the steps you need to take. You also need manifestation techniques to make them come true.
Here are a few tips for making the success of your goals happen:
WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS
A Gail Matthews Goal Research Summary revealed that people who write down their goals are 20% more successful at accomplishing their goals than people who don’t.
So aside from making a vision board, try writing down your goals in a journal, which can help you remember and pay attention to what you want to achieve.
WRITE DOWN YOUR OBSTACLES
The Law of Attraction states that we should always focus on the outcome but psychological science reveals that identifying the things that are preventing us from accomplishing our goals can also help.
Writing down the obstacles that are getting in your way, can help you recognize bad habits, old patterns, and any barriers that may be self-imposed. It can also be a way to release anxieties and worries, helping free up space in your mind. Writing down what you fear, can be a symbol of letting these anxieties go, and you can focus more on the positive.
UNDERSTAND YOUR “WHY”
A study shows that having a greater understanding of the purpose of your goals will give you more chances of success. When you’re making your fitness goals, try asking yourself why you want to exercise more. Is it for health reasons? Or maybe you want to look better and be more confident?
Understanding your “why,” can give you the motivation to keep going and when obstacles are in the way, give you the sense of purpose to move past them.
Designing your dream life can be challenging because sometimes, you don’t have a clear vision about what you want. The statistics we’ve shown in this article are not a means to tell you what to do or what your dream life should look like, but they can serve as a guide to help you create your blueprint for your dream life.
Try using these categories for your vision boards 2024 plans, and start the very first step to designing the life of your dreams.
