How to create the life of your dreams – Part 1

“Creating the life of your dreams” sounds cliché, I know. But I whole-heartedly believe in the power of consciously creating your lifestyle to reflect what you *really* want in this short life of yours.

So here’s my no-BS guide to actively and consistently creating the life of your dreams.

This step-by-step guide is based on the steps I’ve taken myself to actively do this in my own life. Take what resonates with you, leave the rest.

Before we begin, let’s get a few things very clear:

  • only you know what the “life of your dreams” really looks like.
  • the “life of your dreams” really means your average day.
    (Because the average day is what makes up the entirety of your life.)

HERE IS MY 6 STEP GUIDE TO ACTIVELY + CONSISTENTLY CREATING THE LIFE OF MY DREAMS.

1) Take stock of everything your daily life currently encompasses: the people, the places, the conversations, the story, the message, how you spend your time etc…

2) Be brutally honest with yourself about what you truly desire to experience in your life. This is often the hardest, and most important part. What do you *really* want?

3) Compare and contrast between these two lists, and identify what’s missing from your current daily life that you’re craving more of.

4) Decide for yourself if it’s worth making changes for. Because here’s the thing: change takes time, and it’s hard. It requires a lot of effort to dedicate and commit yourself to creating long-term change in your life, and a lot of faith to carry you along the way. So you need to decide whether or not you think it’s worth fighting for.

5) Once you’ve decided you’re in it to win it, you need a game plan. You need to identify what changes need to be made so that your life can slowly but surely be a better reflection of what you really want.

6) Make the changes bravely, courageously, and without looking back. Implement some kind of system or routine to make sure that you follow through with these changes! (if you want to hear more about my systems and routines, let me know in the comments)
