Listing all your needs is the first step to achieving a hotlifestyle. After all if you don't know exactly what you want, how do you know when you are winning. Consider all the things you really need in your life whether of the Mind, Heart, Body or Soul. Now, based on all the needs you have listed, design your future; your dream life so to speak. It's time to take control and assume the role of your life’s architect and ask yourself this question – If the universe can give you absolutely anything you want, what is the perfect life you want to be leading right now? This is your end goal that you want to achieve. This is the path which meets all your needs, from mind, body, heart and soul. This is the vision which will empower you to greater things.
Be as generous as you want. Write down whatever your vision entails. It may involve starting your own business, climbing the corporate ladder, buying a villa on the coast, whatever. The key is, not to limit yourself.
When you have finished your list, look at this scenario and ask yourself – Will you be 100% happy here? Does it meet every single one of your needs? If not, there is either something you missed out when listing your needs for each aspect, or you designed a vision which missed out a particular need. Identify the missing piece and improve on your vision until it is a scenario where you are completely 100% happy.
Building the Path to Your Dream
When you have finished designing your vision, look at your current situation. Where do you stand today? What is needed for you to reach your goals? What barriers are preventing you from reaching your destination? Maybe you lack the skill set and know-how to achieve the end goal. Maybe you don’t have enough money to start-up the kind of business you want. Be realistic and write all of this down.
Start identifying how you can address the barriers to success. If you don’t have the skills, then figure out how you can gain them. It can be through reading, attending training courses, getting a personal coach, etc. If you're not sure of the path to reach your goal, take a look at people who have reached similar goals. Study what they did and learn from them. Talk to them to understand more about their actions in those scenarios. If lack of money is a reason, then make earning money your temporary focus until you are able to move on to the next step.
