Vision Boards

“If you can dream it, you can do it.”   Walt Disney What are your dreams?   Your hopes?   Your desires?   We all have them—that secret dream that thought, that wish of what we want to do or who we want to become today, this year, in our lifetime…   One of the many tools to help manifest these dreams is a Vision Board.   Vision Boards have been used for years; however, they have become more popular in recent years due to media surrounding the movie The Secret and Oprah Winfrey’s show, website, and magazine.   In a nutshell, a Vision Board is a collage of images and words of things you want to attract into your life or become.   It can be things you would like to have, where you want to live, vacation, or who you want to become, do, or be.   How does it work?   A vision bard works by activating the Laws of Attraction, which simply means that we attract anything we give our attention to.   The Law of Attraction is a Universal Law, which means that it ALWAYS works!   Just

I have a Dream...

As we honor Dr. Martin Luther King and his legacy, it’s important to think about some of the messages that he gave us.   First, he had a dream.   Dr. King shouted it from the mountain tops, shared it with the world, and his dream helped to change the world.   In a lifetime we have seen our country change for the better!   But my purpose here isn’t to talk politics—but about dreams.   We should all have dreams!   What are your dreams?   Health?   Financial Freedom?   Love? Family?   Education?   Cars?   Homes? A great tool for helping realize your dreams are Vision Boards.   It is literally a board covered in images that represents your dreams—what you want to be, do, or have in your life.   What are your dreams?   Have you made a Vision Board?   Want to make a Vision Board?   We at Care More are committed to helping you realize all of your dreams!   Join us at Care More on Wed Jan 11 th for SMART Goal Setting & Wed Jan 18th to make a vision board.   Bring some
The American Health Care System is primarily a disease care system.   In 2009, $2.1 trillion dollars was spent in the United States on Medical Care.   This represents 16.5% of the Gross National Product.   Of these trillions of dollars, 95 cents of every dollar was spent to treat disease AFTER it had already occurred.   At least 75% of these dollars were spent on treating chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and obesity.   These can be preventable and even reversible!

12 in 12

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail… As 2011 cam to an end, I found myself writing my resolutions, this time for 2012. Last year was “11 in 11;” this year will be “12 in 12.” I am doing things a little different this year. For example, I’m starting earlier. I started developing my goals before Christmas. Again, this year they’re not going to be resolutions, but goals! So what are my goals? How safe am I going to play this? How honest am I willing to be? Integrity First. Integrity remains a quality instilled in my upbringing and was further ingrained at the Academy and while in the Air Force. It’s who I am to the core, it’s how I live my life. As I write my goals, I’m going to be brutally honest—not only with myself but also with every one of you! 1.  Honor my creativity by utilizing my creativity at least once per month. 2.  Finish Painting the office by the end of 2012. 3.  Read a minimum of 1 book per month. 4.  Help more people reach their Health Potential by teaching
