'Tis the season to create our vision for
the New Year. On New Year's Eve for the last couple of years,
my friend Kathryn Severns, my husband and I have met to
design our New Year. We do this by creating what I call
a Prosperity Board. The board is simply a collection of
cut out pictures and words that represent our goals, aspirations,
and dreams for the New Year. I create several, one for my
personal life, one for my work life, and one for my relationship
with my husband. I even have small ones that I carry around
in my day-timer. The visual of my goals helps keep me on
track and reminds me of my intentions for the New Year.
Here is some information to get you started creating your
A prosperity board is a great visual affirmation
of your goals. Your prosperity board is a powerful tool
because it appeals directly to the right side of your brain,
which is the part of your brain that responds to feelings
Your prosperity board displays pictures
and words that symbolize what you truly want to a have in
your life. By focusing your energies on what you want to
manifest, your creative imagination will simply cause it
to become a reality.
Directions for creating a Prosperity Board
Get a medium sized bulletin board (you can
also use a poster board, but you will not be able to change
and update it as easily). Hang your bulletin board in a
place where you will see it everyday and often during the
day. My business one hangs in my office next to my desk.
Next, cut out pictures and words from magazines,
catalogs and newspapers that depict the things you want
in your life. I have a picture of a Saab 900 Convertible
hanging on my board. I also have a list of my goals, pictures
that relate health and prosperity and pictures that represent
a flourishing business. Whatever is a visual representation
of your goals is what you want to hang on your board.
Next, affix the cutout elements in collage
fashion on your board. There is no right or wrong way to
do this, so just have fun with it. If it makes you feel
great when you look at it, you have done it the way it needs
to be done.
As you receive the items represented on
your board, take those pictures and words down, write thank
you across the front of them and put more pictures of your
next desire in their place.
This has proven to be one of the most powerful
tools I have ever used. It inspires me and keeps me motivated.
I trust you will find this to be useful, too.
