   1)  What’s the one thing I’ve always wanted to do?

Think about what would need to happen in order for you to carry through with this long-sought wish.  Would it change your family dynamic ?  Would you go out on a  limb to make it happen?  Good. Then make a plan and get started.

   2)  If I could spend today doing whatever I want to do, what would it be?

Let your mind and heart go.  It could be something related to your work, your home, or something absolutely silly.

   3)  Where do I really want to live?  What city and what type of residence?

Perhaps you’re already fulfilling this passion and you do live in the place of your dreams. If not, think about the possibilities of moving to a place you’ll love. Do some research and print out some pictures. Hang them where you can see them and dream about them.

   4) Where would I like to visit?

Perhaps you have a guilty secret yearning to visit Washington, D.C. or Westminster Abbey in London.  The streets of Hong Kong may be calling your name or even the Grand Canyon.  Can you make it happen?

   5)  What do I talk about doing but never do it?

In a conversation, you might say something like, “For the last 10 years, I’ve really wanted to take a cruise to the Caribbean.” Maybe it’s Comicon or a conference about your favorite thing.

 6)  What are the reasons I don’t go after my dreams?

Explore within yourself why you haven’t gone after  the life you want.  Can you do something differently to help bring your dreams to life? Could you explore your favorite dream part time or one day a week?

  7)  How will I finish the sentence, “More than anything, before I die, I want to ___________?”

Say it out loud and fill in the blank.  Say it again, louder.  Now, shout it!  Then, figure out a way to accomplish that wish.

If you’re discovering you don’t love everything about your life, maybe it’s time to do some “housecleaning.”   Make a list of the ways you’d like your life to change.  Include things that you like but know might simplify going after what you really want.

   9)  Which people in my life inspire me and why? It’s important to know who inspires you so you can spend more time with them.

What is it about them that lights you up so much?  Now figure out how you can be inspired every day.  Decide to take every step to do that.

   10)  If I were to make just one radical change in my life right now to make life better, what would it be?

Your answer to this question will really open up your possibilities.  Moving to a bigger city might really spice up your life.  Getting more education might be a goal—plus you’ll likely make more money.
