I am focused on what I truly want for my life based on my own values and life experience.

To help you decide what you really want, try the following two exercises…

  1. Make an “I want” list: Write down 30 things you want to do, 30 things you want to have, and 30 things you want to be before you die. The big things– cars and houses–will probably be at the top of the list, but as you work your way down, you will rediscover your core values like making a difference.
  2. Make a “20 things I love to do” list: Think you can’t make a living doing the things you love? When you write them down and really think through what it would be like to pursue those activities everyday — and how others pursue them already– you will discover you can make a career out of doing what you love!

Find a place with a comfortable, quiet environment, and then clarify your vision of the ideal life being clear and specific.

Include these seven areas in your ideal life: work and career, finances, fun and recreation, health and fitness, personal goals, relationships, and your contribution to the larger community.
