The Vision Board by Joyce Schwarz Featured on Kellie in the Morning KVON 1440 Radio

Special thanks to the gorgeous and vivacious talk show host Kellie Fuller of "Kellie in the Morning" on KVON 1440 Radio in Napa, California for inviting Joyce Schwarz, author of THE VISION BOARD: the secret to an extraordinary life on her show on December 31, 2008.

Twita  Joyce Schwarz (left) is the author of THE VISION BOARD: the secret to an extraordinary life. She is a Hollywood career strategist and coaches people from all walks of life on how to create their future through visioning their best possible year ever!

It was a pleasure to be on Kellie In the Morning because Kellie asked a very vital question -- where do you start in creating your vision board if you DON'T know what you want in life!

And at some time or another all of us are in that space -- we either don't know what we want because we are nursing some hurt or anger or holding on too tightly to the pieces of a broken dream of the past!

Here are 3 tips if you don't know what you want right now!

1) Start with gratitude -- if you read my book you'll find my GRABS formula which begins with Gratitude and then leads to sharing which starts the cycle of creation over and over.

So very simply 2)make a list of 7 things you are grateful for. Go ahead do it today -- even if you're getting ready for a big New Year's eve. It will only take 10 minutes-- promise! Don't overthink it -- be grateful for all of the good things in your life!.

Oh, you say nothing's good right now then be grateful a) that you're alive and b) that you have your health and c) that you have food in the cupboard d) that there is a new year coming in less than 15 hours (at least on Pacific time).

3) So print out this blog here is the format you can use:


1._______________ 2______________ 3______________ 4___________

5____________ 6_________________7 ____________________


By being grateful you'll find that you'll automatically switch over to a new state of mind -- just like clicking a remote control. Once your in the state of gratitude you can begin to RELEASE some of your past expectations and hurts or regrets for 2008 and be ready to RECEIVE immediately!

Surprisingly that's one of the mistakes many of my clients who are creating vision boards do -- they feel that the insight-- the guidance will only come once the board is PERFECT, yet many of my clients tell me that just by doing the grateful exercise, they clear out the old and yes, just as in the saying -- one door closes and a window opens -- they find a new outlook that gives them insight into 2009 opportunities.

Who knows you may meet the love of your life tonight!

I once got a great job offer on New Year's eve. I was acting glum (see you don't even have to act HAPPY) and a pal of mine at the event I was attending asked me what was up and I said well I really need to get a job ASAP. He knew my background but instead of commiserating with me when I said that he excused himself-- I assumed to get another drink and maybe get me one and together we could drown my sorrows! Instead he brought a pal back with him who said "I hear you're looking for a gig" And I was hired on the spot as a consultant part-time (I was in the midst of finishing USC grad school in film) at a wage I marvel at even today!

So by being open and sharing my concern I was able to create the financial stability that allowed me to finish my masters degree.

You can latch on to this same kind of creative power IF you are true to yourself and let go of the past.

A quote I shared on Kellie in the Morning show is this favorite one -- so appropriate for New Year's Eve:

"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside, awakes" Carl Jung reprinted from THE VISION BOARD chapter on Visioning!

Why Vision Boards are more powerful than New Years Resolutions by Joyce Schwarz, author THE VISION BOARD,www.visionboard.info

During the past couple of weeks, Joyce Schwarz, author   The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life  has been heard across the country on radio stations ranging from Wyoming to Daytona Beach, Florida to Victoria, BC, Canada talking about the value of visioning and vision boards versus old-fashioned New Year's Resolutions!

In this post, author and Hollywood career strategist and new company launch consultant (see www.joycecom.com for details on more then 75 high tech companies Joyce Schwarz has launched), you'll discover 4 reasons that Visioning and Vision Boards are better than making resolutions that are often broken within hours or even minutes after making them at midnight December 31 each year.

 Left( Joyce Schwarz, author THE VISION BOARD, the secret to an Extraordinary life" by Harper Collins Publishing, Collins Design, www.IHAVEAVISION.org

OUT WITH THE OLD IN WITH VISIONING 2009 as the best year ever: Schwarz has been featured nationally on dozens of radio talk shows explaining why visioning and vision boards as featured in her book and as shown on Oprah and LARRY KING's shows are more powerful for changing your life than old-fashioned New year's Resolutions.

FOUR REASONS VISIONING AND VISION BOARDS are better to use than old-fashioned New Year's Resolutions, by Joyce Schwarz,   The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Lifehttp://tinyurl.com/seeinsidebook

1)Visioning and Vision Boards use images to activate your brain and encourage positive results!

 Most New Year's resolutions are simply 'said' sometimes they are expressed aloud but much of the time the individual just 'resolves' to lose 10 pounds or give up smoking or make more money. However, with vision boards and visioning you are not only writing down what you want to create you are visually picturing the desired outcome. So that means that the image is activating your RAS (recticular activating system) of your brain so that it is instilled in your mind -- much stronger than just a wish or a resolution can ever be. The image then reinforces your vision which comes from the inside out/ not the outside in!

2) As hinted at earlier, a resolution is prompted by something outside of yourself or your physical self -- not your inner self. You resolve to go to the gym. You resolve to exercise more. You resolve to start dating again. BUT through the visioning process and by creating a vision board you are tapping into your inner power of intention and really expressing your inner desires to manifest them.  You are inspired not just 'motivated' -- this is 'heart work' not head work. Both your left and right brain are involved in visioning and vision board creation where usually in New Year's resolutions your left brain which is the analytical one says it's time to lose weight or time to find a new love or to get a better job.

3) We live in a visual world -- as screenagers-- weaned on Sesame Street and raised on MTV we are easily influenced by pictures around us. So why not create your own visual map and picture your best life possible. When you are driven by resolutions it's too easy for outside images to distract your resolve. Resolve is like "gritting your teeth" visioning is like singing your song! It's a joy versus a task!

4) With the visioning process and vision board creation you'll find 'defining images' everywhere that will support your creation process and reward your visions of the best possible life. You'll be looking for those pictures that encourage you to your goal realization versus distractions that get you off track from your resolutions. Visioning is an ancient practice that has worked for thousands of years. Visioning is a warmer and welcoming way of creating/guiding you to your dreams. Resolutions are all too often harsh reminders of your failures in the past! Rather than releasing your past and envisioning a better tomorrow NOW!
