8 Questions To Ask Yourself To Build Your Dream Life

So you want to create your dream life? Where do you start? Do you need to build up a strategy from the ground up? It’s about knowing yourself well enough to know what your definition of success is and how you’re going to go about smashing it.

Which means you need to sit down with yourself and ask yourself some questions. Grab a notebook and start writing the answers to these questions in it. You might be surprised what you discover about yourself.

The best thing to do is to be completely honest with yourself while you’re answering these questions. Once you have, you can start a new page and write out strategies for actually creating your dream life. Be sure to add them in small steps, for example, if you need to sell your home for a profit, start small, adding things that will increase its value, rather than pay for a complete makeover.

These questions and the answers you give will help you make a path to follow for yourself. Crack the code for the life you want and you’ll be on your way to a successful rest of year in no time. It’ll also help you step away from the things you don’t necessarily need in your life anymore.

QUESTION 1:

What’s the one activity that fills you with joy?

Try to answer this question as quickly as possible. Within one second. This will help you to find out not only what gives you joy in life, but what will help you grow. Maybe it’s the key to starting up business. Maybe it’s the hobby you need to make more time for.

QUESTION 2:

If a relationship or job makes you unhappy, do you stay or leave?

Only you know this about yourself. Have you stayed far too long in a job, relationship, or friendship that drains you or makes you feel unhappy? Sometimes, we stay in positions or in relationships that make us unhappy. If something is making you unhappy, no matter if you describe yourself as a strong individual or a more passive one you should never let it get in the way of your growth.

QUESTION 3:

What stops you from cutting out things that make you unhappy?

Now think about the reasons why you’ve stayed in situations that made you unhappy. This is the problem you need to solve. The obstacle that stands in the way of your success. When it comes to your happiness, there’s nothing more important and it should always, always come first even if it makes you unhappy to start with.

QUESTION 4:

What do you believe is possible for you?

This is your chance to dream big. We all have big dreams that keep us going, keep us motivated and make the long paths seem worth it. When you answer this question, you shouldn’t hold back. Don’t scoff at something because you think it’s impossible. Because the truth is nothing is. And once you believe this, you’ll be unstoppable. For you, there should only be one destination, and that’s where you should be headed.

QUESTION 5:

How do you make the Universe a better place?

This is quite a difficult question to ask yourself because it’s asking you how you make the world a better place. Sometimes, we can be so busy and caught up in our own lives that we forget to give back. But these don’t have to be big gestures; you probably do so much for other people on a daily basis that you don’t even realize.

QUESTION 6:

How would you like others to perceive you?

Acknowledging how you want others to perceive you will help you mold yourself into the woman you want to become. Imagine what you want others to say about you when you’re not around. You want them to say amazing things because you’re an amazing person. So, be that person and give them something good to talk about!

QUESTION 7:

How do you think others perceive you now?

This question differs from the previous. It’s asking you how you think people actually see you now. The thing about this question is, it will teach you more about yourself than it will about other people. It will help you figure out your weaknesses and perceived flaws, so you can turn them into strengths.

QUESTION 8:

Do you believe your destiny is pre-determined or in your hands?

Whatever you believe affects how you go about your life. If you think your destiny is pre-determined, you will accept the failures and boil it down to fate. But if you don’t believe in fate then you will allow yourself to feel bad about something because it’s your doing. Having a balance between the two is good. You need to accept what has happened and move on quickly, but also recognize where you went wrong so you can be better.
