Tell the students that in the hustle and bustle of life, many of us fail to take stock of how we are living our lives. In the first part of this lesson, they are going to reflect on their past year and revisit their Personal Visions.
The power of Vision Boards Using adaptation from ‘The Answer’ in Annex 4, introduce to students the concept and power of having a Vision Board to represent one’s personal vision. (YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVVOQVgvaWU&feature=related to be put on Chrystal blog)

One Tuesday morning in May 2000, my son Keenan and I opened a cardboard box that had been sealed for five years, and what we found inside changed my life forever.
Now, in the beginning of 2000, my family and I rented a house on the bluffs of San Diego and started house hunting. By April, we had closed on an amazing property and I sent for our stuff, which had been languishing in storage back in Indiana for years.
A few weeks later, all my furniture arrived, along with dozens of cartons. Which is how it happened that I was sitting in the study of my new home, early one beautiful Tuesday morning in May, surrounded by still-sealed boxes, catching up on my email?
My six-year-old son, Keenan, sat on a carton near the door of the room, swinging his legs and banging them against the box.
I peered at the Magic Marker scrawl on the box. “Those are my vision boards, from Indiana, remember Indiana?” Keenan had been a toddler when I had packed those boards away. “ What’s a vision board?”
“ What’s in the box, Dad?” he said, as he continued banging his legs. I said, “Honey, I'm trying to get something done here, do you mind not banging your legs like that? It’s kind of distracting.”
I explained, as simply as I could, that this was something I made out of pictures of things I wanted to acquire or achieve in my business or in my life.
“ Why did you do that?” I was tempted to say “Just because,” so we could close the conversation and I could get back to my email,
But one glance at Keenan, who was obviously having a great time just hanging out in this exciting new home, made me change my mind. As a kid, I’d promised myself when I was old enough (and, hopefully, mature enough) to have kids of my own, I would never say “Just because.”
Somehow, a real estate brochure must have fallen into the box when we were getting ready to move… My first thought was, “Hey how did this get in here?” and we were staring at a huge, stunning, gorgeous house. So I slit open the packing tape, opened the carton, and…pulled out the second board
There, on my vision board, was a picture I’d clipped five years earlier from an old copy of Dream Homes magazine. It was unique house on six acres, with 188 windows, 320 orange trees, 2 lemon trees, and a slew of other special features. There was no mistaking it. It was a picture of the house that the two of us were sitting at the very moment. Not like it. It was this house.
When I’d cut it out of that magazine, I hadn’t even know where it was located or how much it cost. It was just a picture in a magazine. My mind raced. What were the odds of ending up buying that actual house? How would you even begin to calculate those odds?
And all at once, I knew what I was going to do with my life.
