How to Reach your Dream Life

Ever find you’re just “going with the flow” in life? Are you spending your time striving for what society labels “a normal life”? Do you have a different life you’d like to be living?

YES, YES, and YES!

 

It’s easy to get caught up in the rat race of life, striving for the norms of society. If you never stop to think about what you actually want in life, odds are you’ll continue doing this your whole life.

When I continuously “go with the flow” and do what I think I’m supposed to be doing, I get down in the dumps. I feel a deep disconnect within me, and a nagging feeling that I should be doing other things with my time. The truth is,

I’m not following my dreams!

It’s important to define your dreams. This takes time and journaling is an excellent way to sort out your true desires. Do the activity on the following page to help define what you want in life. After that, we’ll outline what needs to happen to slowly start reaching your ideal life.
