What Is a Vision Board?

You can create a vision board in many different ways. They can be made with as little as paper and a pencil. You can also make a vision board on a poster, a corkboard, or any other creative device you can think of.

Choose a Colour Scheme to Match Your Vision H4

Your color scheme is important. Choosing one before you start adding images and embellishing the board will allow you to consistently build upon your template.


Your choice of color scheme can surround the theme of your vision. For example, if you love the outdoors and environmentalism, you can choose a natural, green color scheme. Design Wizard offers a wide range of outdoor, green images.


If your vision is closely tied to your career, you can choose a color scheme that is relevant to your industry.


In the end, the important step is to choose the color scheme that speaks to you and motivates you the most.


Step Five: Download Your Design

When you’re done with your editing, you can download your vision board on Design Wizard. All it takes is a couple of clicks, and your image will be ready as either a png or jpg file. From here, you can do whatever you’d like with your vision board


Remember, the quality of your vision board’s appearance will depend on the dimensions you chose when you got started. If you don’t think your image looks as well as you thought it would, you can go back and switch to a different template.


In any case, the end goal is to display your vision board somewhere. Leaving your vision board as a digital file you can’t constantly see defeats the purpose of creating one. So, put your vision board somewhere you will see it all the time. The more you see it, the more the image will stay in your head and become a part of your future.


Once you have a complete vision board, you just need to choose how to display it. You can use them as wallpapers, social media banners, and more. You can also print them out so you can see them on your bedroom wall whenever you wake up.


Share Your Vision Board Online

Your vision board doesn’t have to be completely personal. Most goals that people achieve are reached with the help of others. You can work out alone, but sometimes going to the gym with your friends will help you stay accountable and determined.


You can share your vision board with others and even create your vision board alongside your friends. A system of accountability is seldom a bad thing.


To start, you can share your vision board online. When others see your vision for your ideal future, you will feel more obliged to work hard for your dreams.


Track Your Goals

Vision boards work best when you can track your progress towards achieving your vision. The board is a good tool for reminding you why you do what you do. But they won’t make you actually pursue the vision.


You can develop a plan to reach your goals and write it out alongside your online vision board. When your goals are all represented on your vision board, you will have both a visual reminder and a tracking mechanism.


Creating a vision board prompts you to put serious, creative energy into what your goals are and what they look like. A checklist offers additional pressure to reach them.


Create The Vision Board That Speaks For You

When you’re building your vision board, you are creating a reminder that speaks to you directly. You will most likely display it in a few places where only you will see it. You can also share a vision board on social media if you want to share it


With any kind of vision board, it’s important to add personality at each step. You can edit your design later, but it’s best to stick with the initial design you created.


A vision board isn’t a one-stop-shop for motivation. But it’s a tool that forces you to visualize and revisit a representation of your ideal future. So, be patient, be creative, and be hopeful during every step of your creative process.


A good place to start is by using a template that is relevant to you. You can then build upon it to create an industry-specific board that is relevant to the people it is shown to.
