Creating The Life You Desire

Written by Aleksandra Jelenic

The way to create the unrealistic, fantasy life you desire and crave is to simply use your imagination and allow yourself to dream the impossible dream. Of course there is more to it than that, but it does start with your imagination. Ignore all instincts to be realistic and instead allow yourself to dream using these steps as a guide:

Visualize yourself with all your dreams and goals achieved.

  • What would that feel like?
  • What do you look like?
  • What are you holding or touching?
  • What do you see around you?
  • Where are you?
  • What do you smell?

Take a picture in your mind of that specific moment in time that you have everything you could ever want and then use one word to describe it. Keep that image alive in your mind with the feelings attached to it. Feel it as if it were happening right now.

Write a detailed description of yourself in that moment, and the woman you saw. Be as detailed possible, and add to your written description as the days progress and more ideas flow.

  • What is she like?
  • How does she think?
  • How does she feel about herself, and about the people in her life?
  • How does she feel about her business or lifestyle?
  • What does she do for fun?
  • What does she do for maintaining that life?

Describe your perfect “typical/average” day. Think about your typical day as the above version of yourself and what her day would look like. Include the work hours and personal time too.

Write a list of 50 things you want to have, to do or to be in present tense, then write each one down with affirming statements. For example: I want a vacation home would transform into “I own a vacation home”; I want to be more confident would transform into “I am confident”. Take your time with this list and be as honest with yourself as possible.

Now, here is the most important task to do, which you will want to focus on one at a time until each is achieved.

  1. Write a precise statement of what it is you desire. Be clear and write it in present tense as if you have already achieved or acquired it. Use this format:
    “I am so INSERT FEELING (happy/excited/overjoyed) and grateful now that INSERT DESIRE . “
  2. Read this out loud to yourself at least 3 times a day and write it out as often as you can throughout your day for 33 days. For example:
    I am so excited and so grateful now that I am earning over $20,000 per month with ease and joy.
    I am so happy and grateful now that I am living in my dream house, I have a successful business doing what I love and my kids are getting a private education.

If you do all of the above you will start shifting the energy you are currently in and head in the direction of what it is you desire. I know, this all sounds silly and sounds like it could be a waste of your time but it is very true that this works. It simply allows your over-complicated brain to slow down and imagine all the possibilities.

I was always told you have to work hard and money doesn’t grow on trees and I truly believed that some people are just designed to be successful and I wasn’t. It was just the way it was and no matter how hard I tried I always end up short. It was all my paradigms holding me back.

I simplified, cleared up my beliefs, I wrote down who the woman I wanted to be was and then I started to behave as her. I achieved a 5 to 10 year goal in 6 months. I got out of my own way and I did all of the above with full trust that God is with me and created me to be great and to do great things with my life not to be stuck in self pity, bitterness and regret. I knew I was capable and worthy of more than how I was showing up. I put my thoughts in order, I asked for what I wanted with full faith that it is on its way, and I am grateful every single day for the life that I have.

Get out of your own way.
Be brave enough to ask for what you want.
