Assume there are no barriers to what you want.
If your optimal life is touring the world, then picture yourself sailing on your 300-foot yacht. If it’s playing golf every day, then envision yourself playing 18 holes in the morning and 18 in the afternoon. If it’s being married to someone you deeply love, having two wonderful kids, and being the CEO of a well-respected company, then create that image in your mind. If it’s writing and marketing a New York Times bestselling book, then picture that.
Don’t hold back. This is your ideal life. Design it however you like, without fear or limits. When you’re ready to describe what your optimal life looks and feels like, write it down.
Designing your ideal life is a powerful exercise that enables your soul to soar without restrictions. You may find that once you begin the first sentence, your hand can’t write fast enough as your subconscious kicks in and demands you recognize what’s most important. This happens because you seldom give yourself the Gift of identifying what would bring you meaningful pleasure and happiness.
