Vision Boards & Bitchin' Scores!
Back in the day, The Law of Attraction was all the rage (still is now apparently). Everyone loved the idea originally because it seemed so simple--I just ask for what I want and think about it really, really, really hard... and it'll just magically show up in my life!
Granted, it was a little more nuanced than that and I may have taken some liberties with the description. But ultimately, the idea was "whatever you focus on.. focuses back on you."
This means if you think about bad stuff, you'll jiust get bad stuff. Flip side of course, if you focus on good stuff, you get good stuff.
So, one of the "exercises" someone may do is creating a Vision Board. This is basically just a serial-killer-style cut-out collage of various things from magazines and words/letters formed into phrases/sentences that represent your ideal future (aka "present") life.
Pictures of mansions with a tennis court or a fleet of luxury cars. Pictures of whatever represents the things you want your future to look like.
You may need to gather up some old magazines, newspapers, junk mail ads, etc. etc. to have enough material to craft a thorough vision board.
A good place you can find some "resources" would be Real Estate Circulars that are often in the breezeways of your local grocery store chain. These are usually newspaper style books or leaflets that feature houses of all kinds--especially super fancy ones. Grab a bunch of these and find your dream home. Right next to those pamphlets, you should probably see some Auto Traders or other Car, Boat, RV type of ads. Grab those. There is gold in there. Find your dream cars. Find a badass RV that you can take to your Lake House that you found in the Real Estate ads. Get the idea? Of course you do!
Then, as you co-create with your date, talk about all the cool stuff you will be doing at these places--use the (with) WHO, WHAT, WHERE, & WHEN as a guide. Who will you be with? (family? friends? etc) What will you all be doing? (water ski? snowboard? chill?) Where will you be doing this stuff at? (Lake house? Mountain cabin? Beach condo?) When will you be doing it? (Spring break? Winter vacation? Summer home?)
The wilder your fantasy life, THE BETTER!
