If I handed you a cheque for 10 million dollars and you could do anything with that money, what would you do? This is one of my favourite questions to ask myself and others because it’s a quick and easy way to gain clarity.
And here’s why…
When you take time to ask yourself this question, you learn a lot about what you actually want and not what you think you “should” be doing.
It is an accelerated way of honing in and gaining clarity on what truly matters to you.
This is huge because the more clarity you have, the more certainty you’ll feel, which will increase your confidence and self-worth, which are key ingredients to living a successful life.
Success isn’t about the car you drive or the career you have. Yes, those are important, but it’s not the definition of success we were fed when we were younger. “Get good grades, go to school and get a good job.”
Instead, real success is about living from the values of your heart. It’s about aligning your time and energy with that which is most important and meaningful to you.
To do this, you need to be able to admit what it is you want and to be able to get into action to give it to yourself.
One of the first steps in doing this is gaining clarity.
So let me ask you this if I gave you $10 million today, what would you do with it?
Take a minute and play with this.
What would you do with $10 million?
Would you travel?
Buy a lakefront home?
Start a business?
Retire from your current career?
Hire a personal trainer?
Invest in multiple streams of passive income?
Get a puppy (or two)?
There’s no right or wrong answer.
What is it that you would love to do with that money?
Once you admit what it is that you’d love to do. Ask yourself what you can do today to bring that dream into reality? Chunk it down into baby action steps and get into action!
If your current reality is not in alignment with what you’d love to be doing, it’s ok. The key is to start aligning your time and energy with that which is.
