FIVE TIPS FOR MAKING YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONSWORK:

1) VISION IT ! Spend some time with your team execs and staff
visioning your success.

2) ACT AS IF, do you dream of being
ranked #1 in your field then tout something that you are #1
at already -- maybe customer service maybe one -to-one CRM
Then promo that on your website. Make a pledgte to your
clients that you are their #1 resource.

3) IMMERSE YOURSELF & TEAM INTO THE VISION
-- yes, immerse yourself into your resolution. Want to speak
at more conferences. Then start listing yourself as a
speaker on your corporate website, register for National
Speakers Association or at least join Toastmasters.

 4) USE POSITIVE SELF TALK: cut out the negatives Be as specific
as possible with your own self-talk and also what you say
to others on your team. Congratulate them for every tiny
step they make and acknowledge that you are NOW on the right
path to realizing that resolution you missed in '10.

 4)CREATE A VISION BOARD FOR JUST ONE OF YOUR RESOLUTIONS:
Focus closely on that one goal. Say it's to get a social
media program launched, Start by registering a twitter name,
getting yoru company page up on facebook and Linked in and
then delegate to team members to populate those three social
media outreach groups. Once you have a base you can delve
into a fancy new 2011 campaign. But if you have no followers
it's tough to convince thousands of others to join you in
2011. A base will give you a launching pad.

5) BE INSPIRED BY QUOTES FROM ROLE MODELS: Maya Angelou, the famous
poet and a friend of Oprah's says, "Tell life" I am with
you kid" and take it by the lapels and just GO! Author's

PUT YOUR FEET UP AND TRY REFLEXOLOGY BESTSELLING AUTHOR JOYCE SCHWARZ TRIES OUT ZEN REFLEXOLOGY IN MARINA DEL REY, CALIFORNIA

 

post by Joyce Schwarz, bestselling author of THE VISION BOARD book blogging at www.visionboard.info,

        "I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes," is one of my favorite quotes by Oprah Winfrey.  But around this time of year even fab shoes can't make your poor tired tootsies feel better. So when my pal Holmes Stoner called and asked me to try out the new Zen Reflexology studio which has just opened at the corner of Washington and Pacific in Marina Del Rey, CA  I rushed over to get my first reflexology treatment ever. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH is all I can say.

ZEN REFLEXOLOGY interior is pure relaxation..........take a look at these pictures I snapped at the Zen Reflexology studio - it is so lovely with their private rooms and also in their open area which features lounges with lovely restful coverings and wall decorations of zen symbols.

Oprah Says She Has to Go Home And Finish VIsion Board After Meeting with Megan Castran Australian Whose Vision Board Came True

Joyceandbooknew 
by Joyce Schwarz, blogging at www.visionboard.info. What an amazing story about Megan Castran, Melbourne, Australia gal whose vision board came true when Oprah visited her at her home in Australia this past week.

Oprah2 

Above, Oprah Winfrey with left Megan Castran in Australia chatting about Megan's VIsion Board Come True as Oprah visits Megan's home and shares the wonder of Megan's Vision Board.blogged by Joyce Schwsarz at www.visionboard.info

 DREAMS DO COME TRUE ....
Turns out that Megan had actually been in Oprah's audience and had a chance meeting with Oprah at the Harpo Studio after one of the shows. It was at that time that Megan gave Oprah her business card and invited her to come to Australia and have dinner with her.

Oprah1 

Above Oprah Winfrey points out her own picture on Australian Megan Castran's vision board which proclaims "I'm On My Way" The video is courtesy of youtube.com and blogged at visionboard.info by bestselling author Joyce Schwarz, The Vision Board.  

A CHANCE MEETING AFTER OPRAH'S SHOW PART OF TURNING  VISION INTO REALITY

     Amazingly to some people, but not to Megan or Oprah is that Oprah kept the business card in her desk drawer and when she decided to take her recent studio audience to Australia her team made arrangements to stop at Megan's house.

    There both Megan and Oprah embraced the power of a Vision Board and talked about that chance meeting back in Chicago. As the author of the bestseller, The Vision Board book, the video caught my attention and I want to share it with you. It underscores the value of being specific and of taking positive action. And it underscores my GRABS formula for when you see Megan's excitement and Gratitude you'll realize that dreams do come true.

   PS Joyce Schwarz, author THE VISION BOARD book already put in a message to Megan via facebook to request a followup int4erview that we can post on this blog.

OPEN INVITATION TO OPRAH -- Joyce will be glad to help you finish your Vision Board and envision your best possible life for you and your new OWN Network, email: joyceschwarz@gmail.com or call 310-822-3119

VISION CARDS are the most vauable tool to do that supplementing your life visioning and vision statements and more

Here is a peek at just some of the 52 gorgeous full color vision cards! .

 See what our first new Accredited Vision Card Readers say about using the Vision Card System:

ENDORSEMENTS: FROM: Linda Beal, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio I love the process of using the cards and prompts to open the mind to new imaginings and insights.......It was obvious how the cards seem to have the power to cut through the subconscious programming of the mind where we revert to old ways AND to stimulate both sides of the brain to achieve a homeostasis state allowing new connections of thought to emerge...The best part is how quickly the tthought empowerment and transformation is achieved. Instead of long draining  discussion, the exchange is lively, stimulating, inspiring and hopeful which creates a feeling release and renewed energy.How cool is that....it is totally different than howo one usually feels after a team meeting at work or a counselling/ coaching session which often seems to take a lot out of everyone involved.

THERE WAS NO Harvard Goals Study and No Yale Goals Study Ever Done Reminds Joyce Schwarz, Bestselling author THE VISION BOARD book Harper Collins Publishing, Collins Design Schwarz Advice Make a Life Not Just a LIving

WHAT IF ALL THE EXPERTS WERE WRONG? What if something you've heard forever was proven false. You might sympathize with the rest of the world that believed the world was flat when Galileo showed them it was ROUND!

Joyceandbooknew Bestselling author The Vision Board book and motivational business speaker Joyce Schwarz explains why goals may backfire for 2011 and why life and work visioning & visual life and work planning is more powerful for immersing yourself into your best possible future NOW! www.visionboard.info


LIFE AND WORK VISIONING VERSUS JUST GOAL SETTING

So once again as people begin to plan for 2011 and encourage you to start your goal list NOW, Joyce Schwarz, best-selling author The Vision Board the secret to an extraordinary life reminds us that the famous Harvard Business School study on goals does NOT exist. It's a complete fabrication told by speaker after speaker and included in several books including Mark McCormick's WHAT THEY DON"T TEACH YOU AT HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL.

RIGHT, THE HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL GOALS STUDY NEVER HAPPENED! AND THE YALE BUSINESS SCHOOL GOALS STUDY NEVER HAPPENED!  

Schwarz explains that for decades it seems now that top motivational speakers ranging from Tony Robbins to Mark McCormick to Zig Ziglar to Brian Tracy have quoted a Harvard Business School Study that says that the 3 percent of the class of 1953 that had written goals did better than the rest of the 97 percent who did not have written goals. BUT DID YOU KNOW THE STUDY NEVER HAPPENED. The best research done on whether this study is real or not -- despite being repeated over and over is by FAST COMPANY MAGAZINE. Here's that post which appears to show that the 'goals study' is an URBAN LEGEND -- really .Proof No Harvard or Yale Goals Study 

Goals 
FAST COMPANY'S CONSULTANT DEBUNKING UNIT (CDU) PROVES THAT THE HARVARD OR YALE GOALS STUDY IS COMPLETELY UNTRUE....FAST COMPANY
article writer Lawrence Tabac says in that debunking article that " It's a consultant's dream anecdote: a vivid Ivy League success story that documents the cause-and-effect relationship between goals and personal success. It's powerful! It's compelling! It's also completely untrue -- as the Fast Company Consultant Debunking Unit (CDU) found out.

Fast Company's CDU even talked to went directly to the source: retired lawyer Silas Spengler, secretary of the Class of 1953 ... Spengler said to Fast Company he never wrote down any personal goals, nor did he and his classmates ever participate in a research study on personal goals.

YALE SAYS STUDY IS A MYTH: Fast Company writer Tabac says that the CDU actually contacted YaleAssociate Research Associate Beverly Waters who after studying alumni records found no evidence of such a study. In the FAST COMPANY article Waters says  " We are quite confident that the 'study' did not take place. We suspect it is a myth."

SO WHY DOES IT MATTER IF THE HARVARD or YALE GOALS STUDY IS A MYTH? Bestselling author Schwarz says because it bases one of the premises of life and work planning on a myth. In our work at the VISION BOARD INSTITUTE on visual life and work planning we train our more than 80 Certified Vision Board Coaches the power of defining images and immersive experiences so they can get our students, readers (more than 75,000 readers of THE VISION BOARD book in English and Dutch) in as close proximity as possible to their life visions NOW. "Most people spend more time setting goals than they do in taking action toward them!" Schwarz reminds us. 

   Here's an article from THE BOSTON GLOBE that explains some academic reasoning on why goal setting can backfire Why setting goals can backfire - The Boston Globe... IN THE EARLY years of this decade, General Motors had a goal, and it was 29. Determined to boost its flagging profits and reverse a long, ...

Bestselling author Schwarz who is also well known as a Hollywood Career strategist explains , "Most people set their targets too low, others have never explored the WHY of their goal". Our Certified Vision Board coaches are trained in prompting self-disclosure from our Vision Board creators about the WHY of their goals and their lives and work. Why does someone want a COACH handbag? Why is another person's 'goal' to climb Mt Everest. Why is another person disappointed because they did not get into graduate school at USC?

WHAT MATTERS IS THE ACTION AND GETTING TO THE AUTHENTIC YOU!Avrkit1 
     Introducing Vision Board Cards and Accredited Vision Board Card Readers AVR. In her more than 25 years in working as a career strategist and logging more than 50,000 coaching hours, Joyce Schwarz hands-on studies show that what really matters is getting to the why and prompting the client to get to their authentic self. To go beyond advertising and life experiences and emotional blocks to see how you can leave the past behind and step into your future NOW! "Amazingly, more than 80 percent of our clients and students at THE VISION BOARD INSTITUTE realize their visions in less than 30 days because we show them how to live their dreams now -- despite their economic status, despite their age, despite their education, Schwarz explains.

In THE VISION BOARD book Schwarz identifies her 5 step proprietary success method GRABS that starts with Gratitude. Schwarz explains that the Vision Board is like a GPS system for your life and that what's really vital is how you power that system, how you program it to get you there.  You may have the goal of going home to Boston for Christmas, but if you let your left brain analytical mind rule it will reveal all types of reasons you can't go -- finances, time, weather etc. So we empower our clients so that they are driven by their WHY to realize their vision using both their left (analytical) and right (intuitive) resources and their power to recognize opportunity and synchronicity. "You have to keep your antenna up, Schwarz explains. Maybe you'll see ad on the bulletin board at school or work about sharing a car ride to Boston, maybe you'll help the older lady downstairs and she offers you her frequent flyer miles for the trip. Maybe you win a trip from your local radio station. Realizing your vision is much more than just setting a goal -- it's taking action steps and immersing yourself in the future NOW!
