My Dizahyrd & Destined Destination is a Vision Book and Goal Accountability Social Gathering where we work to make dreams a reality. GOAL SETTING IS TURNING YOUR VISIONS INTO ACTION. A vision without detailed, concentrating goals is just a dizahyr or an anticipation. Without targeted goals, how will you ever know if your vision is being accomplished? A vision needs direction with milestones, but how do you determine what those goals are?

Each ticketed guest will receive a:
– 3D Visions & Goals Accountability WorkBook
– God Is The New Black Prayer Journal
– Personal Supplies Bag
***Magazines will also be provided for everyone
