Author of THE VISION BOARD Joyce Schwarz explains why a vision board is key to your happiness today and tomorrow! Amazon.com: The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life ...

A new study by the Los Angeles Times shows today that Happiness is based on 50 percent genetics40 percent intention and 10 percent circumstances. Wow that's kind of amazing when most of my clients say that they are happy or unhappy based on life's circumstances.
That's where the creation of a Vision Board can really be key to your happiness today and tomorrow. Why?
A) By creating a Vision Board you release past conditioning and open your inner self to new opportunities -- like being happy.
 
B) Be sure to include Happiness as one of your 'intents' or 'intentions on your Vision Board. So many people just put stuff like Diamonds and Cars and Houses that many forget that peace of mind and happiness are PRICELESS.
 
C) Search for defining images -- images that 'resonate' happiness to you -- it might be a sunrise or a sunset or a picture of you on a mountain top. For me it's a picture of me in front of the Great Hall of China -- if I can get there from the housing projects of Cleveland -- I can get anywhere! Post these images on your Vision Board-- already have a board -- add these images with glue tape or even just a thumbtack.
 
D) Clone your Vision Board -- yes don't just post it in a back closet-- bring it out where you can see it and bed sure to make copies of it that you can use as digital screensavers and maybe even on a keychain clasp. One of my clients even uses her Vision Board as the 'skin' for her laptop!
 
E) Do things that help you be happy -- you know be a kid again -- go ahead and have an ice cream cone, skip down the street , go swing in the park, wear your goofy color socks or even mismatched socks -- after all if it makes you happy and counters any bad genes why not!
