Well, here we are at session 3 of the workshop, Live Your Dream Life NOW! I hope you're all keeping up, however, it really doesn't matter how long it takes you as long as you do the sessions in order. You may already have noticed how one session connects with the next. And this next one does as well. So if you didn't do the last session, make sure you do that one first before you tackle this one.
Get excited...you are getting closer...
In last week's assignment of describing your Dream Life I hope you considered your values, priorities, talents, and all those things that described your authentic self. Your "Dream Life" is only truly your authentic dream life when you take into consideration all those things you wrote about that described yourself in the first assignment.
This week's "dream work" is fairly easy! Well, at least I think so! Here it is:
1) In your dream journal make 2 columns and write at the top of column one, "Dream List" and the top of the second column, "WHY?"
2) Take the items you described in your "Dream Life"and put them in column one under " LIST."
For example if you described yourself living in a stone house in the country and having a barn with horses. Your list would look like this: Stone house in country
Have a Barn
OK. You get the idea. Simple, right?
3) Then for each of the items you listed, ask yourself, "WHY do I want this?" Try to get to the "REAL why" underlying a "SURFACE why".
For example, when I did this, I had on my list " take our children, their spouses, grandchildren, and my Mom to Disney World". Why? Well, who wouldn't want to go to Disney World, right? OK, but digging deeper into my "WHY", my REAL reason underlying everything was that I wanted to make memories with my whole family. So I put that down as the "real why". This may take some extra thought. Be sure and take into consideration your authentic self by looking at your "self description" in assignment #1. Put your "whys" under the second column listed "WHY?"
In each assignment you may discover something about yourself that you hadn't thought of before. Or maybe there was something that you thought you knew and was confirmed during these exercises. Be on the lookout for things that you are learning about yourself! At the same time, you are getting closer to understanding how to live your dream life!
OK, That's it for this week! Have a wonderful week! And if you here for the "Grow Your Blog" party and you'd like to enter my Give-Away go to the previous post.
