Did Oprah’s Vision Board Help Obama Win?
She’s had her dress for his inauguration for months

Did Oprah’s vision board help Barack Obama get elected?
The media queen believed in it enough to buy a dress for his inauguration months ago.
Apparently after a rally in February Michelle Obama asked Oprah to start envisioning Barack taking the oath. So home Oprah went to make her first-ever vision board, complete with a picture of the now president-elect and the dress she will wear in January.
In case you haven’t heard the buzz on these boards, the basic premise is based on the rules of attraction and some other concepts that, in my mind, boil down to a very systematic, tangible case of positive thinking … Think “The Secret” but with an actual visual board, sometimes even electronic. There are all sorts of businesses that will sell you tools to make yours but all you really need is some paper, pens, photographs or images cut from magazines, and a clear idea of what you want to manifest
Whether Oprah’s board helped or not, we’ll never know … it certainly didn’t hurt.
What I want to know is … if I make one of myself with not the dress I want to wear but the SIZE I want to be, will it work? If so, I’ll be sprinting to make my own vision board!
