By paying attention to your dreams and taking the time to shape them into concrete aspirations, you are taking a step toward moving yourself in the direction of growth and away from the alternative.
Napoleon Hill, the famous author of one of the most popular personal development books of all time, “Think and Grow Rich”, said, “Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.”
He has gone on to say, “thoughts are things.” The importance of paying attention to your desires and treating them seriously cannot be overstated.
A vision board is a concrete representation of your desires and aspirations for a compelling life. They are fun to create and can serve as an invaluable tool to motivate and inspire you towards concrete daily action in pursuit of your biggest and most important life goals.
With a vision board in hand, you will be moving toward growth in the most important areas of your life!

Frumboli, Gustavo Naveira, Susana Miller, Javier Rodriguez, Osvaldo Zotto,

Tango is a sensual ballroom dance that originated in Buenos Aires, Argentina in the early twentieth century. Tango is usually performed by a man and a woman, expressing an element of romance in their synchronized movements. Argentine Tango is well-suited to dancing in small settings. Argentine Tango retains the intimacy of the original dance.
