Want Your Future Board to Work?? Here's The Secret

I've had so many amazing manifestations the last few weeks, that it has gotten me so excited about the power of my Future Board. I want to tell everyone I know, and I want them to understand it the way I do, so they can use this simple, free tool to change their life. If you have been a  skeptic, or if your unsatisfied with your life in any capacity.... I challenge you to make a board.  Just do it!  What in god's name do you have to lose? You have everything to gain. No offense, but if you don't have one yet, and you read my blog and/or follow me on any social media... you are crazy! I have way too much proof that it works for you to still be sitting there, bitching about your life and not have done these simple steps to change it.

So you ready? Let's go!

Here's the secret for getting your vision board to actually work:

1. PUT IT UP!!!!
My Pinterest Future Board
I can't tell you how many people tell me they have made a board (like I did) but that it's in their closet.  Or on Pinterest, or on a phone app.  I hope this is clear enough..... THAT'S NOT A VISION BOARD, AND IT WONT WORK!  If you want it to work, YOU need to work! So take the time to go on Pinterest make a "dream life" board, pull it up on your phone (so you see all the thumb nails) and then screen shot that... email that pic to yourself, then print it and put it on your wall, in a place you will see it every day!!! It is critical that you see every single day.

It's the simplest, cheapest, no risk way on earth to totally change your life.  If you don't have one up at home and at work, then you're not practicing Hustle.Believe.Receive.  So don't write to me complaining about how it doesn't work...just sayin! Do the work! 

2. Focus on the experiences you want to live out.  I've written a lot on this, so I'll refer you to my video on this topic. But it's a critical component to getting results. 

3.  Take time limits and "how" out of the equation.  When you make your board, realize that you are drawing up a plan (much like an artist does) of your future life.  So make sure it reflects all the areas of your life, and make sure you are dreaming big. This is your future. Period.  You WILL attract this life, over time.  But you have got to take time limits off the table. You don't control the "when" or the "how" so just let that go. Who cares if it took me years to get to Disneyland.... It was more than worth the wait. The point is that I attracted it. I manifested it. And you will to. Don't get frustrated, don't get discouraged, just get excited because that life is coming your way. And it feels awesome let me tell you!

4. Believe it will happen.  Once you have really and truly implemented #3 then this step is just the logical aftermath of that.  If you understand that at some point in your life you will live out those experiences, then that naturally leads you to believe.  At this point in my personal journey, I honestly just KNOW that what's on my board will one day show up in my life.  I don't know when, and I don't really care. I just know it will come true.  And it has.

5. Take Action.  I cant overemphasize this point enough. This is recognizing an opportunity when it comes to you. This is the part that most people miss. They are expecting the exact thing that is on their board to fall out of the sky and into their lap.  They are struggling to make it happen, instead of relaxing into the fact that it will in it's own time... and they miss the open door.

There will always be an open door of opportunity that comes before your dream is realized.  But it's often subtle, and will always require a leap of faith.  You will need to take a step through that door knowing that the other pieces to the puzzle will come together naturally.  But nothing will happen if you don't take that step.  So be aware.  Be soooooo aware in your life.  Don't miss those doors and don't be afraid to walk through them.  That's how you get to the reward, it's the only way.

That's really all there is too it.  It's not complicated. It's not too hard. It doesn't require and "initial financial investment".  There is no scam.  There is no marketing promises.  It's simple. Make a plan for your future, make it clear and precise, follow the steps above and start living the life you KNOW you are capable of.

Believe in magic
Want an example of how this works for me? I'm a tactical person, I like examples... so here's today's example....

Today I had just come back into the office after being out on vacation with the kids in LA this past week, and was sitting at my desk, when all of a sudden, I saw it.  A little picture in the center of one of my boards, a photo of California Adventure.  I'm not even sure I knew what it was when I put the picture up on my "travel board" on Pinterst, I probably just liked it.  I'd not spent a lot of time focusing on it, in fact I don't ever really remember looking at it, considering my vision board takes up one whole wall in my office.

Example of #3. I've had this vision board (and that picture) up since I took this job in Nov of 2011. I've had the picture of Disneyland on my board since 2006.

Example of #4.  I've told my kids for years that one day we WOULD go to Disneyland. We've talked about what we'd do when we got there, what it would feel like... all of it. We KNEW we would go, it was only a matter of time.

Example of #5. One New Years Day of this year I was checking Alaska's website for mileage deals and shockingly found four tickets for 10k miles each, I had 40k miles saved up, and immediately knew this was the opportunity I had been waiting for to make this dream a reality.  I booked the tickets that day, on TOTAL faith that some how, some way the trip would all come together and I'd be able to afford it. I knew I'd probably never be able to fly us all down for essentially free again. This was my open door and I walked in, having no idea how I'd manage the rest of the trip.  But I had faith that some how it would fall into place, because I'd taken the first step.

The trip wound up exceeding by far any expectation that I or the kids ever had. It was truly magical beyond words for so many reasons.  And just like magic does, I wound up getting a bonus check before the trip, the hotel lowered their rate because their rooms weren't full... and on and on.. all trip long, totally perfect, it all just fell into place.

When I went to purchase the park tickets for Disneyland, they were running a special where we could go into all the parks for the same cost as just Disneyland, so I figured "why not?" I didn't know much about California Adventure and had never been. We went the last night and it was amazing.  So back to my realization today at the office, that the picture in the middle was a replica of one I took last week. I got chills, like I always do when I realize a manifestation from my board.


It really is amazing how powerful this thing is.  BTW the pic above of my board on Pinterest, I've manifested three of those five items, check out my Instagram (SarahCentrella) Facebook or Pinterest for the pics).

So what are you waiting for????

  1. I had always wanted to move to the beach. Around 2004, I put up pics of beach scenery in my home and would focus on it each day. My life was pretty dreary back then and I was in a slump. I still looked at my beach pics because they made me happy. Finally in 2007, 4 years later, all the doors of my current life closed and what opened were doors in a city that was built on a beach. I forgot about looking at my pics and was so focused on getting a new job and moving that I forgot I even had beach pics.
    Well, not only did I move to the beach, I actually have the exact same rocks and sea grass that were in my pics, rt in front of me. All of this happened before I consciously knew what a vision board was. Now that I know, my board contains beach pics again, because I don't want to lose what I have, but Ive added a pic of a Sailor greeting his wife as he returns from deployment. They are embracing and he has roses in his hand. I keep looking at this because one day I want to be loved and embraced like that. Thanks for the vision board motivation! Rhonda

    1. I firmly believe you need to have a physical board on your wall.. the most manifesting I've done has been off of those physical boards, though I have manifested from my Pinterest board too. I think you need to physically put it up where you will see it every single day

    2. I have had a vision board on my computer I made from Power Point and then from Movie Maker App, but I would find myself just not pulling it up on my computer for one reason or another. I decided that making an actual board cutting out all the pictures I had in my vision board on Power Point and actually gluing them to a poster board and placing the Vision Board in my bathroom, I would most definitely see it everyday more than once. I look at it and say yes, yes, yes that is mine and some day it will be.

  3. I realized I have something on my vision board that I don't want. Do I have to redo the whole thing?

  4. If I create my vision board on pininterest, and then somehow make it as my phone lock screen background, will it work if I make the effort to look at it and visualise everyday?

    1. I'm still a really big believer in the traditional board, because the act of putting it together and putting it in a location that other people can see it really has power in my book. But anything is better than nothing and i do think that every little bit helps :)
