Do you promise yourself every year that this year will be different? That this year will be the year that you make the changes you’ve been dreaming of so you can live the life of your dreams?
How many times have you promised yourself and how many times has it not happened, leaving you frustrated and discouraged, feeling like your dreams will forever be out of reach?
It’s not too late, you know. You can decide now, you can begin taking the first steps that will lead you from where you are to the life you want to live.
It isn’t going to happen overnight, and it might not even happen all in one year. But if you don’t begin, it won’t ever happen.
So, how do you begin? And where?
The first step to living the life of your dreams is to figure out what that life is. You need to define that life in as much detail as possible, so you have clarity. If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you’ve arrived?
How do you define the life of your dreams?
Start by answering these ten questions in as much detail and as honestly and authentically as possible. Pondering on these questions and answering them is not meant to be a quick exercise. It may take you hours, days or even weeks. You may want to ask trusted friends or family members for feedback.
Once you have the answers to these questions, you can use them to create your roadmap to the life of your dreams.
Analyze the answers to these questions and use them as the basis to begin setting your goals. You don’t have to do it all at once. Begin by choosing one thing to change, based on your answers. And then choose another. As you progress on your goals, your confidence will grow and allow you to tackle more goals successfully and simultaneously.
As you move toward your ultimate goal, you need to take the time to periodically review these questions and update your answers as appropriate. It’s important to recognize that your definition of your dream life may change as you progress and grow. And that’s ok.
