Are You Ready To Create Your Dream Lifestyle?

3 Questions That You Must Ask Yourself First

Stefan James

Take a moment, close your eyes and visualize what your dream lifestyle looks like.

Don’t just visualize what it is that you want to manifest. Rather, FEEL it. Imagine that it is already a part of your reality.

What are you doing? Who are you with? Where are you? How do you feel?

I’m going to guess that the things that the things that come to mind don’t exactly equate with what your currently reality looks like. Am I right?

The idea of visualizing your success may seem way too abstract at first, but never doubt the power of your imagination. Our thoughts create our future.

When we dive into our imagination, where creativity and passion reigns supreme, and focus on the reality that we want to create, we set in motion a wave of limitless possibilities.

As Albert Einstein once said:

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview for life’s coming attractions.”

This isn’t an airy fairy, head in the clouds concept. It is actually proven by science.

Brain studies reveal that thoughts produce the same mental instructions as actions do. In other words, when you are visualizing your dream lifestyle, you are actually priming your brain for self-efficacy and success.

Do you think that some of the most successful people in the world created their dream lifestyle, simply by fulfilling the wishes of others? Hell no.

Some of the all-time greats, like heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, used visualizations and mental rehearsals in order to boost his performance in the boxing ring.

Seeing is believing.

Maybe you don’t even know what your dream lifestyle looks like yet, but the fact that you are reading this may mean that something about this topic has sparked your curiosity, inspiring you to make a change.

Change is good.

Before we can change, we need to know what is the driving force behind our desire to transform our lives.

There are 3 questions that you must ask yourself first before you start creating your ultimate dream lifestyle.

1. What makes you jump out of bed in the morning?

Do you wake up in the morning, grudgingly roll over and hit the snooze button 3 times because you are dreading the thought of going to a job that sucks the life of you?

If this is you, it’s time to start thinking about WHAT it is that makes you excited to jump out of bed every day. Life is precious. It’s meant to be lived fully and wholeheartedly, not spent complaining and hating life.

If you’ve merely settled for a job that pays the bills, step back and ask yourself, “Is it worth it?” If your gut isn’t giving you a big YES, it’s time to rethink why you are here.

That is what your dream lifestyle is meant to represent.

If you are like me, your work needs to have a bigger purpose than just a pay check.

You need to feel as if you are contributing to the world at large and contributing on a level that is greater than yourself.

Find what it is that makes you come alive inside and devote all of your energy to making that dream a reality.

2. If you had 6 months to live, how would you spend your time?

Nobody wants to live a life of regret. If you knew that you didn’t have much time left on this earth, how would you spend your time? Would your to-do list matter? Would you be sitting on your computer all day?

Probably not.

When you are in the thick of life, it’s hard to have perspective and gratitude for how precious our time here is. Many of us take life for granted.

What would really matter to you with the limited time that you had left?

I would want to live and experience life to the fullest and enjoy the present moment — being with the people whom I love, traveling the world, living my passion, eating amazing food, and laughing.

These are the things that we should be doing every day. I inspired you to create a life that reflects these experiences.

Don’t wait until tomorrow to start creating your dream lifestyle. Life is short. Do the things that matter to you, NOW.

3. If money didn’t matter anymore, what would you do?

If you didn’t have to worry about paying bills anymore, what would life look like?

This is a hard concept to grasp for a lot of people, because it feels so unrealistic in its scope, but it’s an important question to ask yourself when you are creating your dream lifestyle.

Why? Because money doesn’t buy happiness.

Researchers, based at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management in California surveyed thousands of Americans about whether time or money was more important to their happiness.

The result showed that people who pick time over money are generally happier. If this is true, then what is the driving force?


Think about the people who don’t have a lot of money to begin with, and quit their 9–5 jobs to pursue their passion in life. Money isn’t their driving force, or else they would have stayed in their comfort zone.

So, when you’ve achieved financial success and money doesn’t matter anymore, what are you doing?

You already have everything that you need inside of you to help make your dreams a reality.

Here’s the bottom line — if you can’t visualize yourself living your dream lifestyle, then chances are you never will. What do you have to lose?

Well…a lot, according to Tony Gaskins:

“If you don’t build your own dream, someone will hire you to build theirs.”

Guess what he or she has planned for you? Not a whole lot.

Don’t wait for life to happen to you. Act as if you already have everything that you have ever desired. Start harnessing the power of your mind.

Your dream lifestyle is within arm’s reach. Are you ready to start creating it? Sometimes all it requires is taking one small step in the right direction.
