It started with a picture. And a mountain.

2010: I started up Pike’s Peak for the marathon. Mile eight, I turned around, defeated and discouraged.

But, on the way home I bought a plaque, with a picture of a mountain and a saying. “Now is the time. Climb your mountain. Don’t wait for your dreams to come true …”

That picture and the inspirational saying were my first vision board.

Don’t know what a vision board is? It’s a way to manifest your dream life. When you make a Vision Board, you get clear on what you want to create in your life. Once you get clarity, you select images and words from magazines, and paste them on a big poster board. Seeing this board each day aligns your brain with the outcomes you most want to attract.

Even on the days when you don’t look directly at your vision board, even on the days when you are discouraged, your brain still registers those pictures, still on some level sees them as “true.”

It sounds pretty simple. And yes, there is a process to make your Vision Board more powerful.

So why doesn’t everyone create Vision Boards? Well, I once belonged to a small group of women who were committed to creating vision boards and guess what? Working individually, on our own time, it took us MONTHS — and some of us never finished. From talking to friends, I’ve realized that most of us never even start.

The truth is most people never make the time. Life keeps us busy and distracted — too distracted to make the changes that will help us get free of the rut we are in.

It’s time to change that. On Saturday, November 4, I am hosting the first ever Color Your Dreams Vision Board Workshop.

It’s a full-day immersion for you to dream big, focus on your authentic life and ideal outcomes, and also to get the support of other like-minded dreamers.

Due to the deep nature of the work, I’ve made only 10 spaces available. (They’ll fill up pretty fast.)

Here’s what I’d like you to do: if you would be interested in something like this, all I need is your name and email in the contact form below. I’ll add you to the interest list. I won’t add you to any other lists or email you every day or even every week! Because though I’m doing this to show off the studio and reach new clients, I’m not fond of unwanted emails.

Vision Board Workshop

So what happened with my “vision board” picture?

The next year I didn’t qualify for the marathon (you have to post a qualifying time in a regular marathon to even enter Pike’s Peak). I didn’t qualify the next year, either. In fact, I just gave up.

But my subconscious kept seeing that picture, and somewhere in the background of my life things were moving to get me up that mountain again.

One day by “chance” I figured out a way to lose the weight I had never been able to lose. One day I “just happened” to get on the scale and I weighed 10 pounds less … then 20 … 30.

Things started falling into place. Despite my lack of formal marathon training, I became fit enough to complete a marathon in the qualifying time frame.

In 2016 I completed the Pike’s Peak Marathon and set a personal record. This year I set another PR. And I’m looking forward to more years of accomplishment in this race as well as others!

IKnow what? I’m looking forward to your accomplishments, too! If you have a dream you really need to fulfill, I’d love to send you the workshop info!

And now, this is my favorite picture of a mountain!
