It’s been a part of the motivational speaker’s mantra for many years. Find someone who has or is doing what you want and model what they do. When you see successful people who use vision boards, you can see how they attracted a new partner or won an award that means everything to them. You can do the same thing by following their path to success. Here are seven successful people who created the life they desired.
Jack is a successful author and speaker. He is also a master of vision boards. Jack claims he first began visualizing by making a cheque for 100K and placing it above his bed so that he could see it upon waking. At the time he started this, he was making $8,000 a year. When he realized success from that, his wife wondered if it would work for any amount of money? Jack believed in the law of attraction, so he created a check for 1 million dollars. Now it is highly likely you have heard of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul,” book series. Yes, Jack’s first million dollar check received was a royalty check for that very first book in his impressive series. Jack has gone on to teach people how to create vision boards and even has vision boards that you can download from one of his sites. His vision board hangs on the back of his bedroom door, where he sees it multiple times, plus a folding vision board he takes with him on his many business travel dates.

Ellen is an outstanding comedian and television host. However even as successful as she is, there are things she desires to bring into her life and uses vision boards to make that happen. Ellen is a huge fan of Oprah Winfrey and loved her magazine, called “O.” Oprah used the magazine to promote herself and did not put other people on the cover. That didn’t stop Ellen. She started doing mock-ups of herself in various clothing and putting herself on her mock cover of “O.” This not only put out her dream to the universe, but it also attracted Oprah to understand how much Ellen desired to be on the cover. Oprah made it her mission, to make Ellen’s dream come true and Ellen got her “O” cover as she desired.
Oprah comes from very humble beginnings. She worked hard and got into television before starting her own very successful television show. The idea of a vision board didn’t come to her mind until she had a meeting with Michele Obama and a few other powerful women. Michele asked for her friends to visualize her husband, Barack becoming President of the United States. Oprah’s first board was a simple affair and included a picture of the dress she would wear when Barack Obama was elected president. Since then Oprah continued to use vision boards and taught a master class on how to create a powerful vision board.
John is known as a very successful entrepreneur and was featured in the documentary, “The Secret.” His vision board story is simply amazing. John had built a vision board, and in the centre, he placed a photograph of a house he desired. He continued to work hard and achieve many things. A few years later, John and his family went house hunting and found one that they loved. It wasn’t until they were moving in and John pulled his vision board from a box to show his son that he realized the house he bought was the exact one he visualized. The picture that John had placed on the vision board was a view of the back end of the house, so when he and his family first looked at purchasing the house, and upon seeing the front of the house, they fell in love with it.

The number represents the rating he needs from the television network to be at the top. He is constantly thinking of ways to attract what he desires for him and his family.
Katy got a very early start with vision boards. In grade four, her teacher explained to the class what a vision board was and how to make your dreams come true. Katy searched for images of Selena, her favourite singer and who had won a Grammy for her efforts. In the centre of her vision board, Katy posted a picture of Selena holding her Grammy. Katy knew at an early age that she wanted to follow in Selena’s footsteps and took the actions to make that happen. What incredible success from the mind of a child in grade four. It is a testimonial for anyone who has children and wants to incorporate family vision boards into their daily lives.
