Are you dreaming of a different life or life style and do not know where and how to start creating it? Maybe you need some more clarity to fill in the blancs in order to jumpstart your desire for a more fulfilling and aligned life; one that honours your own values and embraces your talents and preferences. I compiled six questions to help you gain clarity and set goals to speed up your conscious life design process. So, let’s start figuring out what it is you really want by answering these questions:
What’s your highest priority in this lifetime?
What is most important for you to experience, explore or embrace during this lifetime? Until you answer this question, your life goals will be off purpose. Unaligned with your inner passion, your intentions will lack the power to attract the people and situations necessary to become a reality. When your goals are aligned with your soul, synchronicity kicks in to guide you to your target. Think of the childhood activities and hobbies you enjoyed most to get some clues.
Is this your dream, or the dream of someone else?
Growing up, we learn to fulfil the expectations of our parents, teachers and employers. In doing so, we often overwrite our own dreams and loose connection to our soul purpose. Obligations and tasks fill up our life and negative voices in our head become louder if we take unexpected steps that lead us out of the known to try something new. If you want to create a life you are passionate about, you need to start identifying if your ideas and desires are truly yours, or if they are ideas of other people. They might mean well, but do they really know what is best for you?
Are your goals your own choice, or what others think you should strive for? Do you want to look back in your old age and wish you had followed your passion? Will you regret having “played it safe?” Is it selfish to go after your own dream? What joy can you give to others if you haven’t given it to yourself first?
Are you settling for less than you deserve?
Anything short of living your true passions will never make you really happy. Our highest, common goal is happiness and you deserve to be happy too! It’s our preferences, our interests, talents and our vision which defines the activities and relationships that influence the level happiness. While one person might be most happy raising kids and doing art projects someone else might feel passionate about trading and feels most fulfilled spending time on the stock exchange. But what happens if they do something different and/or are surrounded by unsupportive people?
Are you accepting less than your full share of love, health and success this lifetime? Have you compromised and sacrificed your dream until now? How does that make you feel? How would you like to feel?
What will you feel like when you reach your dream?
Visualising helps to manifest your dreams and attract people and opportunities; we learned this already in the movie “The Secret”, but there is a missing link: The feeling state! Personal passion fuels a vision. Dive into the thrill and exhilaration of the feeling of living your dream. Try to feel it when visualising your dream life and go back to this feeling whenever you get off track. The Hawaiian Kahuna say, “Where your creative attention flows, so flows your life.”
What steps can you take today toward your dream?
Don’t defer your dream. Set up supports and systems around you to instantly translate your intentions into action. Jump on every opportunity that is in line with your purpose and vision and start eliminating activities and people that do not support you anymore. It’s ok to start with small changes. It’s not always possible to just leave the old behind and start from scratch.
Are there smaller projects that lead to your larger dream? If the dream is to run a marathon, train for a local fun-run first. Find a way to measure your progress. Track those little wins-by writing in a journal, telling a friend or sharing it even on social media.
Are you telling yourself: “I can’t have my dream?”
Most people don’t believe they can live their dream. Either their belief system has them believing they can’t make a living doing what they love, or they feel they don’t deserve their dream. To avoid the pain of feeling they can’t have their dream, people often keep their dream so buried they can’t remember they ever had a dream.
Everyone has a dream! And everyone is destined to fulfill that purpose. Why wait?
Let’s dig up the dream you buried such a long time ago so that you can start creating a life you love!
