by Joyce Schwarz, best-selling author THE VISION BOARD book, www.ihaveavision.org, email:joyceschwarz@gmail.com We continue in our look at how vision boards are used around the globe.

And on today's google alert-- I find that one of the most fascinating articles is how a Soccer Team in Ghana creates a vision board to depict their future soccer wins!Vbghana

Here is what the article says about the vision board creation by the team: Other activities included a grooming session at the X-men Grooming Centre located at East Legon, where the teammates were treated to a variety of grooming including manicure, pedicure, neck massages and haircuts. They also had some photoshoot at Photo4U also located at Asylum Down in Accra . Another interesting activity was the Vision Board, which featured the teammates doing a pictorial presentation of their dreams and aspirations for the future.    

Here is the link to the complete article on Ghana's soccer team:  https://mail.google.com/mail/?hl=en&shva=1#inbox/12ba7a58544160e3

Read the article closely -- it appears the team or one of the team members may win a 2 bedroom HOUSE! what a great vision!

Thanks Ghana's MTN Soccer Team for sharing the vision!

Joyceandbooknew By Joyce Schwarz, best-selling author THE VISION BOARD book, www.ihaveavision.org. email: thevisionboard@aol.com

Here's another Google Alert about Vision Board creation that caught our eyes today.

Ucla1 FROM THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER ARTICLE:see full OC register article Yes, it turns out that Johnathan Franklin, according to this OC Register story has been keeping a vision board since high school. In case you don't know Franklin's work here's some info:

Franklin is one of the hottest running backs in the nation and as well one of this college football season's most unlikely success stories.

     Since he was in high school, Franklin has committed his dreams to a vision board, a collage of quotes, goals and images, a road map to his ultimate destination.

"He has always put it on paper," Andrews(his mother)  said

 The OC Register article says: as UCLA with Saturday's game at Cal enters the heart of a Pac-10 schedule that will determine whether the Bruins' Rose Bowl visions become a reality or a pipedream".

   Thanks for sharing the vision Johnathan Franklin!

Vision Boards Around the Globe first stop London, England

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

 Joyceandbooknew It's always fun to see what's happening to vision boards as they become more accepted and used around the world. Here's a clipping that Google Alerts found for me about an exhibition of paintings inspired by an artist's JulietteJeanclaude.com vision board for 2010.

Note that Juliette is not a member of THE VISION BOARD INSTITUTE and we are showing her work here only because we feel it may inspire other artists to use their Vision Boards for 2010 for inspiration too!

And here's what the artist has to say about her upcoming painting exhibition:"Every year, I make a Vision Board to visualize what I want as well as sending my intentions to the universe. I believe words, images and thoughts are powerful tools that anyone can use to consciously create the reality they want to live in."

Why Get Accredited as a Certified Vision Board Coach?

Why Get Accredited as a Certified Vision Board Coach? by Joyce Schwarz, bestselling author THE VISION BOARD book and founder of The Vision Board Institute. www.visionboardinstitute.com

Joyceandbooknew To find out more about The Vision Board Institute and accreditation as a CVBC Certified Vision Board Coach, go to www.visionboardinstitute.com or contact joyceschwarz@gmail.com
Cvbc-logo-3-small-web Look for the CVBC logo on any classes, seminars, workshops or private coaching you are considering --our coaches and counselors each complete more than 50 hours of education in the areas of design, life planning, career coaching, life and work visioning and vision statement and vision board creation and analysis techniques. To see a list of the more than 75 Certified Vision Board Coaches and find one in your regiion go to: www.visionboardinstitute.com and click on Counselor List. Or email me at: thevisionboard@aol.com and I will refer you to a Certified Vision Board Coach in your region and city.

First of all I'd like to explain the value of Certification in general. You may not realize that certification can lead to better visibility, opportunities, and jobs.

In today's economy and in the ongoing challenge to explain the value of your spiritual, mystical and creative skills, credentials are more important than ever before.

Sure you may be a big fan of vision boards and you may also have done life visioning and even life coaching for years or even a decade or more, but how do you convince new prospects, especially corporate, trade organizations and conference organizers that you've got the skills to do the job of conducting a vision board class better than anoteher potential candidate. That is were accreditation as a Certified Vision Board Coach or Counselor is the official stamp of approval.

Why should YOU become a Certified Vision Board Coach or Counselor? Ask yourself, first of all, how are companies, trade groups, women's organizations and companies who want to hire a Vision Board Coach or Counselor to be a paid speaker at an event or to conduct workshops going to find you? Are you listed online or do you just list your name when you're doing a current workshop or event.

How do potential clients know that you are good at what you do? How do they know that you understand the basic principles of design, history of visioning, life planning and are able to increase creativity with your exercises? Quite frankly, they don't UNLESS you are Certified as a Vision Board Coach or Counselor.

By putting the credentialing initials after your name of CVBC it means that you have reached and attained an accreditation that is highly prized in this Body, Mind Spirit areana. It also means that you have completed almost 50 hours of training one to one via home study or tele-workshop or LIVE training with the international vision board expert and best-selling author Joyce Schwarz.

Even the US Government says that certification can increase your income at least 20-30 percent annually. So that is an additional good reason to get accredited as a Certified Vision Board Counselor CVBC.

Vision Boards are much more than cut and paste and tearing out pictures or grabbbing them from a digital or computer software program and arranging them in a collage format. The actual vision board creation is part of the process of lifa and work visioning.

Do you know how to help your clients find their defining images or power words for 2010 or 2011 & beyond. Can you help a client create a vision board that will be helpful in getting a new job or choosing a new career path?

Certified Vision Board Coaches learn these skills and more. So consider becoming a Certified Vision Boarc Coach and earning your accreditation NOW!
