If you read my blog, you know I have some lofty goals. Bestselling author. Oscar winning screenwriter. Adele concert goer. All things that aren’t easy to accomplish.
And yet, I don’t give up on my dreams and goals. I know I am meant to be a writer and there is no plan b. Actually there’s not even a plan z. It’s writer or bust. And I’m not going to be a bust.
Because of this, I have become a very bold person. I have no choice. If I don’t stand up for myself, fight for myself, show the world that I have a whole lot of awesomeness in me, no one else is going to.
I do this in a variety of ways. One of which is starting my morning with Listerine. It gets me and my breath off to a fresh start. After all, I can’t have bad breath in case I run into an agent or Ben Affleck – hey he was in town filming a movie for awhile.
I switch between different varieties but Cool Mint Listerine is a favorite. Also, if you haven’t tried Whitening Listerine DO IT! I will never go through dentist office whitening again. but back to Cool Mint it is … well … cool because in lab studies it kills 99.9% of bad breath germs and germs that lead to gum disease, it reduces gingivitis 21% more than flossing and brushing alone and plaque 52% more than brushing and flossing alone. And it leaves a super minty freshness behind.
I also picked up Listerine Pocketpaks in Cool Mint for the first time on my most recent trip to Walmart. They are great when I’m on the go. I can pop one whenever my breath isn’t feeling its freshest. They dissolve instantly and in lab studies kill 99.9% of bad breath germs.
Okay, so now that our breath is going to be minty fresh, I’m going to show you how to achieve all your bold goals and dreams by inspiring you to create a vision board.
You may have become familiar with vision boards back when The Secret was super popular. They are a poster board that is covered in photos and quotes that represent what you want from life. They can cover topics big and small.
In order to create a vision board, you will need:
- Poster board
- Photos from a magazine or printed off the computer
- Crayons, colored pencils, or markers
The first thing that you need to do is brainstorm ideas of what you want to be on your vision board. Maybe it’s a trip, a new house, a career, a family. For me, for example, I really want to move to California, so I put a picture of LA on my board.
I’d also like to be an Instagram star because it’s my favorite social media. I’d love to be in Taylor Swift’s squad, make a movie with Reese Witherspoon, be on Ellen, and be represented by the best agency in Hollywood, William Morris Endeavor.
Once I had my ideas, I printed some pictures, and got to work taping them on my board. I also used crayons to add inspiring words and some decorations.
The most important thing about a vision board is that it be important and personal to you. It should represent your very essence. And supposedly, it is supposed to work. Which is a good thing, because I’m ready for my bold moves to have bold payoffs.
With Listerine and a vision board, we can achieve any bold thing we want!

The weather is so much nicer in California. I want to live on the west coast someday.
Carolyn West says
I fully believe in the power of having a vision board. I love the one I did a few years ago.. and while some of it hasn’t come true yet, much of it has. #client
It’s great to hear the vision board worked for you. I am hoping for the same results. Thanks, Carolyn!
I love, love your vision board! I KNOW you will accomplish your dreams!!!
Thank you so much for your supportive words, Liz!
It’s good to have goals. One of mine is to move to California someday too. 🙂

First, I do use Listerine and I like the whitening one. I do think it helps a bit or at least keeps my teeth the same.
The vision board is a great idea and I do think that it works. If you don’t have your vision in front of you everyday reminding you of your future plans, you could go astray from your goals. This keeps them front and center. Wonderful job on yours!
Thank you, Debbie!
