When I think of the word “lifestyle”, I think of the TV show Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous that aired in the 90’s.
I think about how much money they made, what they spent it on, and whether or not I’d be happy if I were in their situation.
More often than not, the answer is no; I wouldn’t be happy.
It’s easy to look at someone else’s life and think “I wish I could live like that”. But the problem is, if we don’t consider our priorities, goals, and dreams, we can end up in a situation where the life we’ve been working towards just isn’t what we wanted.
The reality is, everyone’s ideal lifestyle is unique to who they are and what’s most important to them. If you’re ready to start building the life of your dreams, there are a few things you’ll need to consider before you get started.
Watch the video below to find out the 3 key steps to creating a life you’ll truly love.
Before you start a business, consider what’s most important to you, what you want to have time for, and how you want to live.
What does your ideal lifestyle look like to you? What’s around you? How are you impacted by the things you have (or don’t have)?
You may want to be living in a bustling city full of fun activities to do, or you may want to live in the countryside where it’s quiet, and you can find solitude.
These are some examples of questions to help you determine the lifestyle that you truly want for your life, that fits your needs, priorities and desires.
Once you’ve decided what your ideal lifestyle is, it’s time for the challenge.
What business can you create that supports the lifestyle you want, and gives you the time to enjoy it?
Part of the lifestyle that was most important to me was being able to live in Costa Rica. I love the life that I’ve been able to create here, I love the environment, and I love the culture.
So because I had a clear vision of what I wanted my future to look like, I knew I had to plan my business around my desire to move to Costa Rica. And in that respect, I was incredibly lucky.
I didn’t understand what it meant to have leveraged and residual income, but that’s exactly what allowed me to both make enough money, and make sure that I had income for years to come.
Spend some time and really consider what you’d like your future to look like. Think about what you want in your life, what the major components are in your life, and make sure that your business lines up with your priorities.
Think about what’s important to you, what you absolutely must have, and what you absolutely never want to have. Think about how much money you’ll need in order to support the lifestyle you want.
For myself, I wanted the ability to travel. I wanted to have a nice home, be able to travel and see my family, or pay for my family to come spend some time down here instead.
I wanted to be able to build little casitas (tiny homes) so that I always have a place for family and friends to stay.
Overall, when you’re looking at your lifestyle, think about everything that’s important to you. Think about how those things work together, and how you can start building the life you truly want. Picture it in vivid detail in your mind. See it, and imagine what it will feel like to have it.
Before I ever set foot in Costa Rica, I had imagined the land that I wanted. I knew what it looked like, I knew what types of trees I wanted, I knew what I wanted my view to look like, the weather I wanted to have, and the way I wanted to feel when I was on that property. I knew exactly what I wanted to have, and I waited until I found it.
The more detailed you can get when visualizing what you want, the easier it’ll be to build that life for yourself. My goal for you is that you can live a life that you truly love, and I’m so excited to be on this journey with you.
