The Value of Vision Boards

At the beginning of every year, most people make plans and set goals for the year ahead. It’s a great idea, because knowing where you want to go is important – How can you get there, if you don’t know where you are going?

With my sailing background, one of my favourite quotes is “If a man knows not what harbour he seeks, any wind is the right wind.” ~ Seneca ~

But a sailor does not just allow himself to be blown about the ocean. It doesn’t matter what the wind, he just resets his sails to take him in the direction he wants to go. In the same way, when you know what you want out of life, you can set your course to get there, no matter what the circumstances.

But, you need to know where you want to go… you need to have a vision!

To help you clarify your vision, it may help to create a vision board (also called a Dream Board).

The Streetwise Millionaire

Gordon Mackay's book, The Streetwise Millionaire – The Key to Retiring In 5 Years Or Less, aims to equip you with the tools you need to bring about change in your life and give you results. The advice given is based on over 20 years' experience in the business of making real money – Gordon became a multi-millionaire just seven years after being declared technically bankrupt, with debts of R5 million.

In addition to sharing his Streetwise Millionaire System (TM) with you, Gordon also asked several people to contribute their own stories of how they have succeeded in overcoming life's challenges and achieved extraordinary results by doing the right things and following their passion.

My chapter is called My Dreams And I – Living Like A Millionaire, in which I share some of my priceless life experiences gained through believing in myself and not letting fear stand in the way of living the life I've always dreamed of. I hope it will inspire you to do the same.

If you would like to order copies of this book, please contact me.

Price: R140.00 (Excludes postage)
