Not so fast! This is too exciting. Come on you can’t be serious. All of this just because I made a Vision Board? After watching the film, The Secret, based on the best selling book and discovering the magic of Vision Boards as told by the author of the book, Chicken Soup for the Soul, I vowed to create my own. Well, that was five years ago and unfortunately, I never got around to it. Then last Tuesday while having lunch with a friend I was reminded of the Vision Boards all over again. She shared how she created her own and her results where chilling.
Five years ago when she made her Vision Board she put on it what was then considered to be her wildest dreams. She went on to explain how she used massive towering building to signify her desire to travel the world, stay in fancy hotels and have the need for a passport. In addition, she placed on it a silver Mustang, the car that she had long wanted, except she wanted the color yellow. Lastly, she wrote on it specific details of the job opportunity that she wanted in her future. Now, this is where she said she went silly, crazy, why not me. She wrote on her V-board that she wanted a position that allowed her to come in late, whatever time she needed (she would love this job and would remain dedicated, note: that this young individual is not a slothful worker), where she could display her true self and be appreciated. The type of position that would allow a personal day without having to use the old, “I’m sick” excuse.
Five years later she returns to that V-board only to find that not one, but all three of her visions had come true. Currently, she has proudly risen to a Director level in her career, holds a Passport and lives in fancy hotels on her travels, (all compliments of her career opportunity/responsibility) and yes she drives a Ford Mustang, a silver colored Mustang to be exact.
I should have done a Vision Board. How thrilling!
Saturday, I created my vision board. Five years from now I hope that you will return to hear about the ride. Trust me, it will thrill you.
Tomorrow’s post: It’s not just you, it’s me too.
Read. Post. Facebook. Tweet. Share. Return. There truly is a message behind the messenger.
This has been Sharon Saffold blogging on purpose and not by chance because chances are, I will blog again.
