Cheryl Richardson's vision board

7 of 13
Since Cheryl made her vision board 15 years ago, she says much of what she's wanted has come true. At the time, Cheryl says she was looking for a partner—and now is married to a man who looks like the picture of the man on her vision board. Other than love, Cheryl says her vision board has also brought her success. "Phil Donahue was on here, and that's the first national show I ever did after I put him on the board," she says.

In the center of her board Cheryl has the word "God." She says a vision board shouldn't only be filled with material objects like fancy cars and expensive jewelry. "It's not just about getting things," she says. "It's a spiritual principle, which we've said a million times. But, yes, these work. And they're kind of cool to look at."
