A Complete Guide to Figuring Out What You Really Want in Life.

I have a quick question for you all. How many of you know exactly what you want in your life right now? I am talking down to every last detail of what you want in all areas of your life? Have you ever taken the time to really think about this? What if I could share with you a free downloadable guide, that would help you to find what you really want in life, would you be interested?

Do you know what you want in life? I will tell you I had no idea!

This is a very important question! A question that you should give a lot of thought to. I know for myself and for many other parents that I have talked to, sometimes we get so caught up in our lives, working, raising our children, etc., that we never really take the time to ask ourselves what we really want in our lives. We go through our daily motions just wondering where the heck the time goes. And who would have time to think about what they really want in life?

Does this sound familiar to you?

It sure does to me! When I was asked what I REALLY wanted in life a few years back, the only answer that I could honestly answer back was, stability. How sad is that? Have any of you ever felt this way?

All I wanted was stability in the financial aspect of my life. Everything else was great in my life, my husband, children, our health, BUT…I still wasn’t able to answer the question. What did I want in my life? The key word being, I!

This brought me to a place where I had to dig a bit deeper within myself. I had to really figure out, not who I was at this point of my life, but what I wanted to do in my life. Up until this point, all I had wanted was to get married, start a family and be home with my kids. That is what I had truly desired with all of my being and that is what I had gotten.

What a great example of, “thoughts become things,” right? I had made it my mission to stay at home with my kids and even when things were crazy financially, we made that happen.

But now it was different, my kids were getting older and I was feeling as if I needed to fill my soul, in a different way. Don’t get me wrong, my favorite thing in the entire world is being a mother! But, when they are growing and need you less, you begin to desire something for yourself. At least I did anyways.

So, I started my quest of trying to find out what my passions were, what I enjoyed in my life, and what fulfilled me the most.

This was a journey that took a lot of quiet time, deep thought, soul-searching, and a bit of trial and error. Finding out what you truly want in life takes time….don’t rush it.

My good friend was in the process of trying to figure out what she wanted to do in her life, what fulfilled her the mos, and it took months for the answer to surface! That is OK! Actually, this is amazing because it shows that she really kept digging deep, and going through all of the questions that I had been asking her, until she came to her answer!

That is how it is supposed to be! It is supposed to take you a while & you are expected to change your answers a few times, expand, them, and tweak them! That is exactly what you have to do throughout this process!

Before we get started with this exercise, I want you to remember how important it is to become aware of your thoughts. This alone, was one of the most life changing things that I had ever done. When I became aware of my thought patterns, and realized how I had sabotaged myself for so many years, I was terrified.

I immediately worked on changing my thoughts, which took a lot of work! However, once I did change them…my life slowly started to change! It was fascinating to me.

It was just like being on a diet and losing that first 5 pounds! You are so excited about your weight loss that you do even better on your diet to see more results, right?  AMAZING!

The more I focused on what I was grateful for and the more I focused on what I wanted in life, and the less I complained, the more my life changed!!! Just like magic. It was free and I could fix it almost instantly!

Make sure to read here if you haven’t already! You MUST become aware of those thoughts!

Next, I want you to remember to reflect on your past and where your thoughts have taken you to this point! This is also very important because you can take a look back throughout your life, and realize when you were the happiest and where your thoughts were at that point.  AND you can also see where you struggled the most and where your thoughts were at that point in your life.

It is a perfect time to take notes on your outcomes, to make sure that you don’t repeat them! This is very important before moving on to this next step! You can check out the post here!

Now, that you have reflected on your life, and have become aware of your thoughts, it is time to become aware of what you want in your life!

Remember, I had no idea where to start when I began this journey of trying to figure out what I wanted in my life. I read many books, watched many courses on this subject. Finally, I put together a guide that really helped me to sort though ideas, which led me to my end goals! I am excited to share that with you!

Here is your complete guide to figuring out what you want in life:

These are some of the questions from my guide that helped me to figure out what I wanted in my life! I broke down my life into several categories: Personal, Health, Career, Home, Family, Travel, Finances, Hobbies, and Spiritual.

Before we begin, I want to share with you that you do NOT have to think logically about this. DO NOT think about HOW you will get these items or fulfill these areas!

ONLY think about WHAT you WANT your life to look like. What would make you happy to the core? Think about your PERFECT life! Nothing else! This is VERY important!!!

Money and time are NO OBJECT when answering these questions below!

1. Personal/Career:

  1. Make a list of everything that you love about your life.

  2. What brings the most joy into your life?

  3. What do you enjoy doing the most?

  4. What do you find exhilarating?

  5. What drives you?

  6. What inspires you?

  7. What pushes you to be your best?

  8. What do you look forward to every single day?

  9. If money and time were not an object, what would you see yourself doing for the rest of your life?

You have to dig deep and look within to find these answers. Be patient with yourself and allow yourself quite time to think about what feeds your soul!

This is what you need to base what you want to do in your life on. Your passions, what drives you, inspires you, brings you joy, and pushes you to be better. This creates a win/win situation because if you do what you love then you will never see yourself as working a day in your life!

2. Health:

First, I want you all to take a moment to be grateful for the breath that you just took! We have to be grateful each and every day that we are alive and healthy! It is so important!

  1. What does perfect health look like to you?

  2. How does it feel to be in your idea of your perfect health?

  3. What is your perfect weight?

  4. When did you feel your best in life?

  5. What did you look like during that time?

  6. Can you remember how you felt during that point?

  7. Were you confident?

  8. Energetic?

  9. Did you feel like you could rule the world? I know I did when I was at my healthiest point! It was such an amazing feeling! It was exhilarating and I absolutely loved it!

By thinking of how I felt during these times it motivates me to get into shape and become healthier again! Also, by writing the answers to these questions down in your guide it will help you to attract these things to us!

Enjoy this part, this is so much fun!

Do research, write it all down, get pictures, hotels, etc., so that you have them for our next step! This is so much FUN!

7. Finances: This is fun!

Remember: Time and Money are NO object!

This area is very important to all of us! Most of us want to grow in this area, right? So the more detail you go in to, THE BETTER! pretend you have a million dollars, if you don’t already, to invest with etc. What does that all look like to you? Keep that in mind when you answer the questions below!

  1. What are your financial goals?

  2. How much money or how many investments would you like to have?

  3. Break it down into categories: Checking, Savings, Investments. Go into EXTREME details on each category. The more detail the better.

  4. Monthly income goals.

As soon as I did this on a regular basis, my finances turned around! I know that sounds crazy, but I started focusing on what I envisioned for my finances, instead of what I was lacking, and sure enough more started coming in!

I want you to take a moment to be truly grateful for every penny that you currently have. It doesn’t matter if it is $.76 or $76,000.00, be GRATEFUL for EVERY PENNY!!! When you start focusing on the abundance of your money, instead of the lack of money, you will be given more opportunities to receive more! I promise!

8. Hobbies:

Remember, If time and money were NO object.

How many of you have hobbies?

  1. What do you enjoy doing?

  2. Is it outdoors, indoors?

  3. What replenishes you and energizes you?

  4. What feeds your soul?

You need to make sure to take time to replenish yourself by doing your hobbies weekly! Hobbies are SO important! Schedule time each and every week to do something that you love! I promise you will thank me later!

I know with kids, animals, a business, and a husband, I lost sight of all of my hobbies. As soon as I realized this, and started making more time for them, I immediately became less stressed and more fulfilled!
