5 Steps to Living Your Dream Life
Want to achieve your dreams? Here are 5 steps to living your dream life:
Imagine Your Ultimate Life
What are your dreams? You need to know what you want in order to achieve it.
You need to envision your dream life. Be specific and be thorough. You can always say, “I want to win the lottery.” However, you may win the lottery for $50.00 and while that is lucky, it won’t have a lasting impact on your life.
So, dream big.
Write it down, make a list.
2. Current Assessment
Where are you now? Assess your current situation. What are your finances? Do you have the house of your dreams or do you want a different one? Are you with your soul mate? Are you in good health? Do you have the education and experience to do your dream job? Are you able to pursue activities that make you happy?
3. Pathway to Dream
Make a plan.
Put your list of dreams on the far right side of a document and line up your current status on the far left.
Make sure you have a current status assessment for each one of your dreams.
Then, put a few steps to get you from your current status to each one of your dreams.
Next, prioritize your dreams. Is being in good health more of a priority than getting a new house? Is finding your soul mate more important to you than having your dream job?
Only you know what is the most significant to you. Your priorities will help you decide where to put your efforts and resources.
Put a timeline on your prioritized plan. Include a few dates – be general, ‘Spring 2019’, ‘Early 2019’, etc.
“I want to win the lottery."
4. Remove Obstacles
What is standing in your way? What do you need to overcome in order to achieve your dreams?
Where do you need help? What support, tools, expertise do you need?
Reach out. Get help. Do research. Get information.
5. Embody Your Dream
There’s the old saying, “Fake it until you make it.” Envision yourself living your dream. This is impactful as you will become more of who you want to be as you embody yourself living your dreams.
Share your dreams with others. Spread the word. Seek like-minded people who share your wishes and dreams.
