It's time to Re-vision 2009 Do a new Vision Statement & Vision Board!

Re-Visioning 2009: Make a new vision statement & vision board NOW
by Joyce A. Schwarz, and  

At this time of the year, many of us are looking forward to a great summer and we may also be looking at what we've accomplished so far in 2009.

That's why I recommend that you do a quarterly check up on your Vision Statement and Vision Board. I do mine at the start of each season: Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring etc.

The most important tools to guide you through the transitions of each year are a Vision Statement and a Vision Board.

What am I talking about? A vision statement is a vivid, idealized description of the outcome that you want. Something that inspires ... energizes you, and helps you create a mental image of your target.

My personal vision statement is short and sweet “TO LIVE THE POSSIBLE DREAM”, a positive spin on Don Quixote’s famous “Live the Impossible Dream”.


Some of you may be familiar with corporate mission statements or company mantras but all too often those come from the Ivory towers and are issued via memo.

Vision statements are much more personal – the concept started from the grass roots and spread across the world by people who want to realize their own personal talents and ensure that their life matches their values.

USE TO ENHANCE YOUR LIFE...and visualize the future: A vision statement can be used to enhance any part of your life, like family or career. It could also be created to visualize a new home or a specific project.

Here are some tips for creating your own vision statement:

*Summarize your vision in a powerful statement (1-4 sentences)

*Make sure it stands the test of time (think ballpark vs. small details)

*Suspend disbelief—anything is possible!

*Follow up with ‘inspired action’ (specific steps toward your vision)

*Post it somewhere you can see it daily (and update it quarterly)

*Consider starting with a wish list or bucket list of your dreams.

*Start with a sentence or two and pare it down to a short phrase

*Pick a power word like freedom and craft your vision around that word.

Where to get your inspiration for your vision?

Give a new spin to a classic song you love.

Rearrange an advertising phrase to inspire you.

See a favorite movie one more time.

Refer to a favorite quotation

Recite your favorite poem, it may offer a hint or two

Once you craft your vision statement here are some ways to use it to inspire you to create your create your best possible holiday season and lead into a new year to remember.

Post it where you can see it daily.

Carry a copy of it in your wallet or handbag.

Add it to your vision board.

Print it on the back of your business cards.

Use the power words in your new vision statement to update our current vision board or create a new vision board just for this upcoming season ie Summertime!

SAY YES TO LIFE WITH A VISION BOARD by Joyce Schwarz, author The Vision Board book


In these days of economic downturn, you may hear lots of comments of doom and gloom. What we all need at this time is to say YES, to the great things and people in our lives!.


By creating a SAY YES TO LIFE Vision Board you can do 'just' that!



Some days it seems that everyone around you is in a negative mood. All you hear is "NO", "NO" or "NO WAY"!

So what can you do --well, JUST SAY YES!



Here are 5 NO COST WAYS TO SAY AND "SHOW" YES to the world even before you make your vision board:

1) Go to the park and take a ride on a swing -- go ahead act the age of your shoe size? Ever heard that before --my shoe size is 8 -- so I get to be an 8 year old anytime I want!

2)Eat dessert first! I just found out that October 28 --the launch date of The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life is NATIONAL CHOCOLATE DAY! Ymmm so I'm taking this opportunity to remind you to eat your dessert first that day -- it's only 19 days away! A little bit of dark chocolate is full of anioxidents so go ahead splurge every day with a bite or two of the most decadent chocolate you can find!

3) Put on your happy cap if you're having a bad hair day. I always keep a few of my favorite baseball caps with fun logos hanging as decorations in one of my closets! When I'm feeling a bit down -- I ALWAYS wear my sequineed black and silver baseball cap and I take it on trips around the world-- even on a ride on an Arabian horse in Petra, Jordan!

NO MORE BAD HAIR DAYS! Okay -- we'll have to get some SHARE THE VISION baseball caps to tie in with our website! More on that later.

4) Share a compliment-- say something nice today to someone you DON'T KNOW -- if life is a little cloudy-- I always make sure that I give a compliment or two to someone I see in a store or even in a parking lot.

It's easy --and yes, you can be sincere -- after all -- most people love to be told that their car is a beautiful color or that their T shirt is so much fun or that you love that gorgeous Olive green handbag that the senior you see at the post office is carrying.

You'll be amazed how much it perks you up!

5) CALL A PAL you haven't talked to in a few months or even a few years. Ask them the questions about their life and family -- be a good listener, don't spoil the moment by dragging them down with your own doldrums! Remind them of a couple of fun things you did together.

That's a great way to open the call --start by saying "remember the time we did....."

Now make a list of all of the great things you appreciate in your life and all of the great people and take some pictures of them or go through a magazine and begin to place them on a vision board.

What's a vision board? Most of you know a vision board is a visual map or depiction of how you'd like to live your best life possible and a way to pay tribute to the wonderful things you have and are creating in your life.

Take a poster board or a blank journal and paste some of these YES images in your journal or on your board. And add affirmations that remind you that you are grateful for what IS yes in you life and what will add more YES to your life in the future. Speak in the present tense (not the future) I am grateful for the wonderful home I have on a hill in the forest! YES I have that home now! See it experience it.

Create a Father's Day Vision Board by Joyce Schwarz, author THE VISION BOARD BOOK

How to create a Father's Day Vision Board By Joyce Schwarz author THE VISION BOARD book
by Joyce Schwarz 

This article will show you how to create a Father's Day Vision Board step by step that really enhances your relationship with your father no matter what is happening in his or your life or even if he has passed on!


Father's Day is coming up and for many fathers and sons it is a time of joy and great fun and wonder to share the day with their dad and their offspring.

For other men and boys and girls Father's Day can be a challenging day because a) their relationship with their father is not up to par or their father has passed on or they are a new dad adn not sure how to form a real bond with their kids.


How to create a Father's Day Vision Board step by step (basic version):

1) Gather together pictures of your dad alone and pictures of you with your dad -- if you have them from past albums or from old shoeboxes full of photos.

2) Get a large poster board or consider putting the pictures into a journal or even scanning them into your computer so you can take advantage of some of the computer vision board creation services.

3) Scan the pictures or sort through and pick out 5-6 pictures that just seem right to you.

4) Take some time and play some home movies or videos of you and your dad if you have them. Or do a short visit with your dad via phone if he's still alive and you are on talking terms. Or if he has passed on take time to go to the cemetary and visit his gravesite.

5) If you are not talking to your dad for some reason or have become estranged, take some time to revisit the good times you had with your dad via the movies in your own memory bank.

6) Make a list of 5 of the BEST times you had with your father, was it at an amusement park, was it playing ball with him, was it on a vacation, was it when he came home from work and scooped you up in his arms each night. Start with 5 you can add more or if more come to you start circling the best five that you feel warmest about inside you.

7) Make a list of the POWER words that come to mind when you think of your dad. What did he contribute to your life positively? What did he teach you that has helped you be a better person. If you can't think of anything because maybe you're angry with him or you were adopted or you never knew your father, you can do one of two things a) pick a father figure in your life -- a past teacher or a coach or refer to b) your heavenly father or c) put down those power words of great actions you just know your father would have liked to have shown you if he was able to such as LOVE, Warmth, Bravery, Courage, Perseverance, Humor etc.

8) Start in the center of the board by arranging a picture of you and your dad in a happy time. Or if you don't have a picture of your dad, use a picture from another father figure or a picture of you under the guidance of your heavenly father or the Universe which has guided you in the past and will again in the future. 

9) Arrange some of the other wonderful reminders of the good times in your life with your father in a circle around the center picture. If you don't have good time pictures then pick some out of a magazine or off of the Internet (be sure to get copyright free photos by looking for the term Creative Commons on photo websites).

10) Add the power words -- either type them up on your computer or add words that are the same out of magazine headlines or add power words that come with your Vision Board software program.

11) Add some embellishments-- add some stickers or add some glitter (yes glitter is fine for men too) or add some momentos from your dad and you -- maybe a ticket from a movie you both went to recently. Or maybe one of his medals from the service or even a note you have from your dad that shows his handwriting.

12) Paste or glue all of this on to your board or if you are making a computerized board scan it into your computer so you can move the pictures around.

13) Affirmations: -- add some affirmations about how you'd like to remember your dad if he's passed or how you'd like to resolve difference or have a better relationship with him. Such as My Dad and I have lots of fun together. My dad gives great insight to me. Speak in the present tense not the future and not the past (even if he has passed on).

14) Place your board in a prominent place where you can see it -- in your office or in front of your computer. If you're shy -- get a scan made of the board and use it as an inspirational picture for a screensaver or wallpaper for your phone. OR make a smaller version to use on a keychain and share it with your dad as a present.

You can also make variations of this MAKE YOUR OWN VISION BOARD with your dad such as a daddy and me board for dads with small children or a parents board for mommy and daddy and me. SHARE THE VISION
