There’s a lot of pressure today to “live the dream” but what does that mean really? You know if you’re absolutely *not* doing it… but how do you even know if you are doing it? Based on more than a decade of coaching and 40+ years of personal experience I think living the dream is clearer than it seems at first glance. It borders on formulaic. In fact, I can lay out the framework for you in the length of this blog.
The first step in living the dream is knowing what you value / what makes you happy. There’s no point in living someone else’s dream. I can tell you for certain that unless you’re one of those rare completely typical people whose values 100% line up with societal values that living a dream based on societal values will not be satisfying. Rather, you need to get in touch with what makes you tick.
