10 Questions that Will Help You Live the Life of Your Dreams


Are you constantly frustrated because the life of your dreams seems like some kind of distant vision?

Do you set goals that keep falling short or because you aren’t even sure what goals to set any more?

How many times have you promised yourself and how many times has it not happened, leaving you frustrated and discouraged, feeling like your dreams will forever be out of reach?

It’s not too late, you know. You can decide now, you can begin taking the first steps that will lead you from where you are to the life you want to live.

It isn’t going to happen overnight, and it might not even happen all in one year. But if you don’t begin, it won’t ever happen.

So, how do you begin to live the life of your dreams? And where?

The first step to living the life of your dreams is to figure out what that life is. You need to define that life in as much detail as possible, so you have clarity. If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you’ve arrived?

How do you define the life of your dreams?

Start by answering these ten questions in as much detail and as honestly and authentically as possible. Pondering on these questions and answering them is not meant to be a quick exercise. It may take you hours, days or even weeks. You may want to ask trusted friends or family members for feedback.

Once you have the answers to these questions, you can use them to create your road map to the life of your dreams.

Analyze the answers to these questions and use them as the basis to begin setting your goals. You don’t have to do it all at once. Begin by choosing one thing to change, based on your answers. And then choose another. As you progress on your goals, your confidence will grow and allow you to tackle more goals successfully and simultaneously.

As you move toward your ultimate goal, you need to take the time to periodically review these questions and update your answers as appropriate. It’s important to recognize that your definition of your dream life may change as you progress and grow. And that’s ok.

Here are the ten questions that can get you moving toward your ideal life:

  • What does my ideal life look like?
  • Who is a part of my ideal life?
  • What are my strengths?
  • What are my weaknesses?
  • What are my talents?
  • If I could do one thing every day that would bring me joy, what would it be?
  • How would doing this change my life?
  • What is holding me back from my ideal life?
  • What do I need to do to change what is holding me back?
  • When will I begin making the necessary changes?

      You’re welcome, Jackie. I’m glad you found it worthwhile.

  1. Hi Marie! Long time, no “see”! It’s been ages since I’ve been in contact with anyone from the old HnH Family Yahoo! group! I’ve been enjoying reading your blog posts (via LinkedIn, which I just resurrected a couple of months ago after probably 10 years of inactivity). But this one got me thinking more because my life is radically changing, and at what turns out to be an very inopportune time now . . .

    After almost 29 years, I’m being laid off . Working for this company was a big part of my dream life, because it was pretty much my dream job and I had planned to stay there until I retired or until I died . . . until they told me I had to train two guys in Chennai, India, to “be me”. And we cannot afford for me to do what would now really be my dream life, which would be to just stay home and help take care of my grandsons while my daughter and SIL work . And now, the pandemic . . . and earthquakes . . . and chronic health conditions where my doctor told me I should be a homebody as much as I can (fortunately Camille and James live about a 1-2 minute walk away, so I feel pretty safe being a homebody at either home).

    In the last days, perilous times will come . . .

      Vicki, it’s so nice to hear from you. I am sorry to hear you are being laid off. That is just a bummer. Life is just upside down right now, and it sounds like for you, even more so. I pray you figure out a way to make it all work–and especially to have that dream life of getting to stay home and be grandma.
