Dream Lifestyle: Yours in 7 Simple Steps

What is your dream lifestyle? Is it crammed full of exotic travel? Or settled with a loving family around you? Or perhaps you are stinking rich and famous? Or quietly respected within your business field? Regardless of your own particular aspirations did you know your dream lifestyle is possible when you remember the following steps.

1. Let Go of Old Preconceptions of Success
Only when you accept it is possible for you to fulfill your dreams completely, then and only then, can you create the lifestyle you desire. It first begins in the mind.

2. Identify Limiting Beliefs
It might be you need to do an internal search to see what has been holding you back. Just as you would type a keyword into Google to search for something, try a keyword search within your psyche and see what comes up. Try ‘typing’ in words which carry some sort of emotional charge for you and then either carrying on writing to lose this charge, or work with a coach to help let any ‘stuff’ go you may have around success. Or simply just be aware of it and it will lose its power.

3. Visualise What do you want? 
Have you ever sat down and really thought about your ideal lifestyle specifically? Have a go in words, pictures, cut-outs from magazines etc. It’s a fun exercise to do and gets you focused on outcomes.

4. Act As If 
When you’ve worked out exactly what you want from your lifestyle, the next step is to act as if you have already achieved it. It helps to get you aligned to the end goal and when energy is aligned, miracles happen.

5. Make A Plan 
Miracles work better with some planning. It’s always a good idea once you’ve got your goals in mind, to work with someone to help map the way. This could be a business coach, a mentor or even just a good friend who has some business acumen.

6. Take Action 
The ideal lifestyle doesn’t just happen, no matter how much we wish it so. You need to take the required action steps. If this means meeting some of your limiting beliefs head on, then full steam ahead! You’re on your way.

7. Reward Yourself 
Remember to treat yourself with every success, no matter how small it seems.

Creating your ideal lifestyle sounds easy… and it can be. All you need to do is get out of your own way, picture what you really want, allow yourself to have it and then take the required steps to get there. So why not take that first step? You never know, you might just be one step closer to the lifestyle of your dreams.
