Key idea 1 of 9

Start building your vision. Imagine what a perfect day in your ideal life would look like!

Ever tried finding a restaurant but ending up baffled and frustrated by too many choices, mainly because you couldn’t pinpoint exactly what you felt like eating?

It’s common to feel this way about life in general. To live the life you really want, you can’t be fuzzy about your aspirations; you need a clear vision of your future.

Those who can picture their future don’t need to wait to see what life deals them; they proactively create their lives in accordance with their desires.

Look to Malala Yousafzai for an amazing example. Even though she was shot by Taliban members for her beliefs, she refused to give up the fight for educational rights for girls in Pakistan. Her vision of changing women’s lives for the better was too compelling for her to just stop.

It’s essential that you find a clear vision for your life. To do this, think about what a perfect day would look like to you.

When we think of a perfect day, relaxing images of vacation resorts might spring to mind. But what this really is about is crafting a day that contains everything that is truly important to you – things that’ll help you reach your goals.

Picture a whole day, from sunup to sundown. Where are you? Who are you with? What are you doing? Are you waking up next to your partner, having breakfast with your children and then going to work at your own company? Or are you in a house next to the ocean, settling in to spend the day writing your novel?

Include all your senses while imagining your day: what do you smell, hear, see and feel?

This exercise not only gives you a better idea of what you truly want, but also gets you so enthused and motivated that you’ll want to start moving toward your goal immediately.

Now that you have a better sense about your ideal life, let’s start taking steps to achieve it.
