We live our day to day life hopefully with a purpose, a goal, a dream, or a vision. Finding your why in life is the first step towards your dream life.
Take a paper and pen and think about what your dream life looks like. Is it just about the money? Do you see goals in money numbers like a million dollars? or are they more like I wish to travel more? or I wish have more freedom to spend time with my family?
Think beyond money –
The easy way to find your why is to find your answer to this question –
What would I want to change in my life, if money was not an issue. For me, I would love to be working on my passions of sewing, writing, and knitting. I would love to be travelling every year. I would love be working and make a contribution to the health field. I would love to have time for my family. Money wise, I would love to have investments generating income for my future and the future generations. This is my dream life. I write about this in my journal daily. And to be honest, I already do all of these things that mean so much to me. The decisions I make are in alignment with these goals.
If I get a million dollars today, I would still lead the exact same life with no loans or mortgage payments.
I guess what I am trying to articulate is that reflect on what your dream life looks like for you and everyday work towards that. Remove things you don’t see yourself doing in your dream life and add things that matter to you. Don’t wait to retire to start doing things you life.
