Are you looking for a way to create your ultimate dream lifestyle?
A lot of people sit on the sidelines of life, hoping that their dreams will come true one day, but nothing happens in life unless you take action. Your dream lifestyle isn’t going to magically show up at your doorstep.
It requires that you design the life of your choosing, and then start moving in that direction. This is your life. You make the decisions, so make them. What does your ultimate dream lifestyle look like? If you don’t know yet, it’s time to start focusing on what you want to have in your life.
In the words of Bob Bennett, “A dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement.” Today is the beginning of anything that you want. Are you ready to fly?

What would it feel like to be living your ultimate dream lifestyle?
You may have forgotten, but YOU are in the driver’s seat of your life, which means that you have the power to make your own choices. Once you realize this, you immediately give yourself permission to start designing your ultimate dream lifestyle.
There is no ideal dream lifestyle. We all desire different things in life, whether that’s buying a beautiful home, traveling the world, contributing to charities, improving your health, or investing in your personal growth and development. I’m living my ultimate dream lifestyle, but it didn’t happen overnight. It took a heavy dose of self-belief, time, patience, determination, and hard work.
Before you can start creating your ultimate dream lifestyle, you need to understand what that lifestyle looks like for you. I encourage you to answer these 6 questions and see what comes up for you.
1. What is your “why”?
You will never be able to actualize the life of your dreams until you actually take the time to define what matters to you. What makes you come alive inside? I believe that each of us come into this world with a unique purpose in life.
When people think about living their dream lifestyle they usually envision something out of a movie – a billionaire, relaxing on a yacht, covered in hundred dollar bills, while drinking champagne.
Material possessions are great, but they won't fulfill you. Don’t get me wrong. Financial freedom is a beautiful position to be in, but it’s so much more than material wealth. Once you get to a point in life where you don’t have to worry about money, you start to think bigger. Your mindset shifts with regards to what a dream lifestyle really looks like.
This will be different for everyone, depending on what their values are. So, you may be wondering, “How do I find my life purpose?” The best place to start is by dropping from your head into your heart. When you connect with your heart and lead from this place, you will be inspired to follow your dreams.
Once you find what it is that makes you come alive inside, I encourage you to take action! This is the point at which you will know that you are living a purposeful life. Once you feel into your purpose, you will wonder how you ever survived one day without it.
You weren’t born to live an average life. You have a special purpose and it is your job to find it and live it fully. We all have an infinite amount of potential waiting to be unleashed upon the world, and once we embody it, there is nothing that stands in our way of success. As the German philosopher Frederick Nietzsche once said, “He who knows his why can endure any how.”
2. What is the vision that you have for your life?
Anything that you want to achieve in life starts with having a vision. A clear vision is the roadmap that helps you pursue your dreams and goals, with passion and purpose.
A lot of people have never taken the time to consciously envision what they want their life to look like. This visioning process is paramount to your long-term success.
When I was first getting started on my journey, the one thing that really helped was getting crystal clear on what I wanted my life to look, feel and sound like. Most people have never experienced the peak level of emotion that can come when you tap into a vision that is greater than yourself.
I’m a big believer in the power of vision boards. This is a great way to inspire you to achieve your vision. Visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises that you can engage in. A study found that doing mental training, specifically, picturing yourself doing a physical exercise, drives the muscles to a higher activation level and increases strength.
When it comes to visualizing, be specific about what it is that you want. Your vision board should focus on how you want to feel every day, not just on the material possession that you want. The purpose of it is to bring your dream lifestyle to life. Never forget that, what you focus on, expands.
3. What changes do you need to make to your current lifestyle that will allow you to create your dream lifestyle?
If you have the desire to level up your lifestyle, you need to get real with how you are spending your money. If you want to achieve financial freedom you need to learn how to manage your money. Money management is a habit. When I first started my online business, I stepped back and analyzed my existing lifestyle.
I would calculate my monthly expenses and tried to determine what I could knock off my list that would help lower my expenses, and then I would think about ways that I could create passive income streams, that could eventually pay for almost anything that I wanted. You need to get real with your money habits.
You can take this exercise a step further and write down exactly what it would cost for you to be able to afford the lifestyle that you want, which can be broken down on a monthly, daily and hourly basis. I would then encourage you to ask yourself, “What would have to be the gross income of my business, per year, in order to afford the lifestyle that I want?”
From here, you want to be specific about the exact date that you want to achieve this goal by, and how old you will be when this happens. You are then going to break down what each year up to that date are going to have to look like in order for you to achieve your ultimate dream lifestyle goal.
If you are needing some financial clarity, with regards to how much it will really cost to live your dream lifestyle, check out Tim Ferriss' website, Four Hour Workweek. He created something called the “dreamline.” This is a spreadsheet based on the things you want to have, be, and do. Once you create this, you can see your ideal lifestyle in detail, and then match a dollar amount to your dreams.
4. What goals do you need to set in order to make your dream a reality?
Oftentimes people set lofty goals that overwhelm them. Yes, you want your goals to stretch you, but you don’t want them to be so big that they feel unachievable, to the point where you start criticizing yourself.
This is why you need to carefully construct a set of milestones that will inspire you to keep moving forward towards the achievement of your goals. Ask yourself, “What would I have to do on a daily, monthly and/or yearly basis that would lead me to my ultimate dream lifestyle?”
Don't just think about the the goals that you want to achieve. Go one step further and write them down. This is supported by Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at the Dominican University in California who studied the art and science of goal setting. In her research, she found that you become 42% more likely to achieve your goals and dreams, simply by writing them down on a regular basis.
If you have a desire to start an online business, the beginning stages are always the slowest because you are building the foundation. However, as the compound effect takes shape, you start to scale up fast. Once you start making some money, it’s amazing how much faster your business starts growing.
John Reese once said that “If you can make $1 online, then you are 95% of the way there to making one million dollars online.” That $1 is the hardest money that you will ever make, but it’s also the most rewarding. When I think back to the first dollar that I made online, I remember how amazing it felt. It gave me the confidence to know that the process was working and that someone was finding value from my efforts.
5. What is your relationship with money?
When it comes to living your ultimate dream lifestyle, your mindset is paramount to the level of success that you can achieve. People who have an unhealthy relationship with money often live pay-check to pay-check. If you have self-limiting beliefs about what is possible in life you may be stuck in a scarcity mentality.
If you want to create your dream lifestyle, you need to change the way that you think, feel and act towards money. It all starts with creating an abundance mindset. People who live from a place of abundance adopt an attitude that focuses on possibilities. The fear of never making enough money doesn’t exist in their world.
When you decide to make the shift from scarcity into abundance, your financial life will immediately start to improve because you will be consciously focusing on having more.
6. Do you have an unwavering belief in yourself?
If you want to be successful, then you need to have an unwavering belief in yourself and your abilities. In order to master success in the outside world, first, you need to create a strong inner world.
If you struggle with confidence, one of the best ways to develop and strengthen your belief system is through daily personal affirmations. Through repetition, you can reprogram your subconscious mind and replace disempowering thoughts with empowering ones.
Bestselling author Jon Gordon always says, “Talk to yourself more than you listen to yourself.” When you wake up every day, talk to yourself as if you were a champion and condition those empowering thoughts. If you don’t believe in yourself, how do you expect anyone else to believe in you?
If you have a desire to build an online business, I guarantee that you will fail or experience setbacks at some point in time. However, when your self-belief is strong, there is no setback that will stand in the way of your success. You may sway, but you will not fall, because your foundation will be unshakeable.
The most successful people in this world believe in themselves. More importantly, they possess the grit and determination to keep pushing forward, despite the challenges that they face, while in pursuit of creating the life of their dreams. Anything is possible if you believe it to be so.
