The 1st Wednesday that we come back together in the new year, Ebenezer is hosting our 1st Vision Board Party. Many of our members have not done this before and some had no idea what it is, the purpose or the power of a vision board.
Honestly, I don't remember when I was first introduced to Vision Boards. I had heard for years about writing down you goals/vision, posting up your goals/vision and that kind of thing but I had not heard about actually finding graphics/symbols and designing a board that represents what you envision happening for you in the new year/season. I do remember that Lisa Raye had become popular for her Vision Board Parties and I begin to hear more and more about them with time.
So, one day I decided to do a Vision Board. I shall never forget how I had an elephant because I wanted to become active again with my sorority. I had a graduation hat because my goal was to complete my Masters of Divinity degree. I had a John Maxwell logo because I wanted to become certified with the John Maxwell Team. And, I had some other things too like a new car, a cruise and...I don't remember everything but not much more that what I've mentioned.
Well, today I am financial with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. I have completed my M.Div. I am certified with John Maxwell. I did get a new car but my daughter and I both signed for it and she drives it. On the other hand, I do have my passport but I haven't done the cruise yet. I did get a gym membership but I fell off of Planet Fitness. And...I share the whole truth just to say that even though you may not reach every single goal if you shoot for the stars...you know the rest. If you shoot for nothing, then you'll always hit your target!
In closing, I will never forget that day I saw the advertisement for a special offer that John Maxwell's Team had going for a limited time only. I knew that I had put this on my vision board but I also knew that I could not afford to take advantage of the opportunity. I called anyway and when I hung up that phone, I just knew that I had to do it. I had to step out on faith and do whatever it took. I felt that as a result of the vision board this opportunity had come my way and I could not pass up this chance. It happened. That's why I am so animate about doing a Vision Board every year. Results are why I decided to do this VBP with my church. So if you are in the Waxhaw area and you want to draw opportunities to you in this new year then you are welcome to come join the party, Wednesday, January 3rd at 7:00p
