Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season.

Many people use the new year to do an evaluation by taking a deeper look at their lives and reflecting on their past and the choices they have made. Often, we set big intentions for the new year to inspire change. These new year’s resolutions seem to be the most prevalent that I hear from clients to:

**Eat healthier foods and work out more often to have more energy
**Lose weight or quit smoking
**Take more time to organize their office or workspace to get ready for success in 2018
Lose weight or quit smoking
**Spend more quality time having fun with their kids, families and spouses.
Lose weight or quit smoking
**Travel more often, try out some new fun adventures and hobbies
Lose weight or quit smoking
**Clean out closets and update their wardrobes
Lose weight or quit smoking
**Organize their storage or garages to get rid of clutter
Lose weight or quit smoking
**Let go of outdated relationship vampires that don’t enhance their lives.
Lose weight or quit smoking
**Most importantly, make love a priority whether you are married or single

When people start cleaning out the old to make room for success, health, or spicing up their love lives, it takes energy, intention, and commitment to achieve each forward motion. Sharing your new intentions live with trusted friends, a coach or a mate and writing your goals down sets things in motion. You must really want those changes to make things happen. Saying it and taking new actions each day to change old habits takes at least 30 days, so you need to be consistent.

Each year I update my vision after I settle in after the holiday rush. I also make sure I keep my conversations with friends and family positive and add new photos and words to my vision board. It really sets my year in motion and we often get together with friends after New Year's Eve to share our dreams and visions for the new year and toast each other. It’s a blast! Then other people that are important in your life can support you while you are reaching your new goals.

Many people have heard of creating a vision board or did one year ago when it was a new fad, but I must say after doing what I’m suggesting creating Vision boards works. I have been teaching classes on it, using vision boards and designing vision journals for clients for more than 25 years with many success stories to share like this one below.

Victoria is a 62-year-old, beautiful and energetic graphic artist who had challenges finding men she was attracted to. She came to my vision class to manifest love and success. She doubted she would find a man who could keep up with her energy level and passion for life. She was looking for an intelligent, romantic man who could make her laugh, was spiritual, sexually active, loved to travel, still had a full head of hair and a sense of style. She envisioned him to look like Jeff Bridges, so we created a cool vision board for her with a picture of him on it. We added descriptive words, a photo of The Kiss by the artist Gustav Klimt, a wedding ceremony and couples in love. At the time, Victoria had been dating a nice man named James and she thought they were “just movie buddies” for months. After she added romantic words and photos of a couple kissing to her vision board, James suddenly landed a hot kiss on her and she was shocked. They realized they had built a strong foundation for a loving relationship and they also had amazing chemistry. She called me to pass on the news that her vision board had worked! She is now has been married to James for 6 years, who is a spitting image of Jeff Bridges and has all the qualities and characteristics she added to her board. They are very happy and deeply in love!

Many people know what vision boards are, but most don’t know how amazingly powerful they can be. Many companies and athletes use visioning to achieve remarkable success. It is also a powerful tool to help you find love, success and meet your own personal goals. Vision boards can be simple or intricate. It’s all up to you. By taking time to cut words, pictures and power statements from magazines or other sources, it programs your subconscious and conscious minds to give you what you see and feel! Your unique vision board represents your lifestyle, your heart’s desire and often helps you clarify your vision by doing this creative exercise.

Many of you have met my husband Joe Campanella and my dog Buddy in the neighborhood. They both were on previous vision boards in my past and the likeness of them was so real, my vision was added to an article in the Huffington post article entitled:

Vision Boards, Because new Year’s Resolutions were so last year by Stephan Spencer

Look at the vision board photos and the actual visions come true
