How to Use a Vision Board to Activate the Law of Attraction

A vision board is a simple yet powerful visualization tool that activates the universal law of attraction to begin manifesting your dreams into reality. The concept of the vision board (also known as a goal board, goal map, or treasure map) has been around for generations, but it’s gained a renewed interest and popularity after success expert John Assaraf related his story of using vision boards to achieve his dreams in the best-selling DVD documentary The Secret.



A vision board is simply a visual representation or collage of the things that you want to have, be, or do in your life. It consists of a poster or foam board with cut-out pictures, drawings and/or writing on it of the things that you want in your life or the things that you want to become. The purpose of a vision board is to activate the law of attraction to begin to pull things from your external environment that will enable you to realize your dream. By selecting pictures and writing that charges your emotions with feelings of passion, you will begin to manifest those things into your life.

It works, try it!



Being Honest with Ourselves and Removing Our Masks

It has been said that the eyes are the window to our souls. Unfortunately so many people wear masks to hide who they are that no one ever gets to see their beautiful soul. Sadly enough, not only does no one else get to know the real them, but they often go through life wondering who they themselves are because they have lost touch with their own selves from spending so much of their lives wearing a mask and pretending to be someone they are not. We often begin wearing a mask for protection but who are we really protecting ourselves from, the world around us or our own selves? Are we trying to hide who we are or how we feel? Or could we be wearing a mask in hopes of becoming something we are not?

“Our lives only improve when we are willing to take chances and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.” ~Walter Anderson

Ways You Can Begin Desigining Your Own Lifestyle – Part 3

NOTE: This is part 3 or 3. You can find part 1 and 2 in previous Thursdays.


Once you’ve nailed down what you want your life to look like, it’s time to just do it.  Take action and start making the life of your dreams a reality. Change is scary, but this should be scary in a very good, exhilarating way.

“For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it “eventually,” just do it and correct course along the way.” ~Tim Ferriss

Start small if you need to and just make minor changes to your life’s blueprint at first. The point is to just start making things happen. As you gain momentum, you’ll begin to experience bigger and bigger changes and growth in your life, and, as a result, growth in your happiness.

Step out on faith, embrace that which you’re passionate about, and get started on your amazing journey designing a lifestyle that reflects you perfectly. You alone are the captain of this particular ship, my friend!

Ways You Can Begin Desigining Your Own Lifestyle – Part 2

NOTE: This is 2 of 3 parts-the following Thursday I will reveal part 3. Part 1 was posted last Thursday.


Once you realize you’ve got choices, the next step is to spend a bit of time with yourself and figure out what you want those choices to look like. Create a blueprint that nails down just what you want your life to look like.

Maybe you have a love of music and travel, and you want to design a lifestyle that embodies those things.

Perhaps you love playing the piano, and you want to design a lifestyle around that. Sit down, do some good, hard soul searching, and figure out exactly what you really want your time on this earth to look like. Even go so far as to decide what you hope others will say about you someday when you’re gone.

Do you want folks to appreciate all your awards and achievements, or do you want your death to be memorialized by people who talk about all your experiences and adventures, the way that you loved others, and just how helpful and kind you were?

Ways You Can Begin Designing Your Own Lifestyle – Part 1

NOTE: This is 1 of 3 parts -the following two Thursdays will reveal part 2 and part 3.


First of all, it’s important to realize that you have choices. You make the decisions, you call the shots. Make the decision that you want to live a vibrant life and accept the fact that it may look a little different from the status quo.  That’s OK—no one wants to be the status quo anyway!

Your life is your own. You are 100 percent unique and talented in your own special way. You have the right to spend your life doing the things you love to do, and experiencing things that bring you massive joy.

You are gifted in a way no one else is—and when it comes down to it, no one else can do what you do, quite like you do it! You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.

Those are wise words, and something you should always remember.  They help to remind you that you always have choices.
