It is very easy to rattle off a bunch of cliché phrases as to what kind of lives we want for ourselves, 'I want to be happy', 'I want a family' or 'I want to be successful'. While all of these things are great and what most of us aspire to at some point in our lives, the words themselves are empty.

In order to actually achieve what we want, we have to define it in great detail. What does happiness look like to you? To me it's an endless supply of french fries, spending time in nature and having the freedom to do what I want when I want. If it's your desire to be happy, you have to do some self-examination. When are you most happy? How can you maximize that feeling? What makes you unhappy, how can you minimize that feeling? Does the family you want consist of two parents, two point five children and a dog? Or is it you and your partner traveling the world and making the friends you meet along the way your family. There is no right or wrong answer for the vision you have for your life. It's your life and therefore you choose the vision.

We live in a time where we are constantly being fed messages of what life is suppose to be and they're often conflicting. One book says you can have it all, followed by a blog that says you can't. After all of the input from the outside world we can start lose sight of or confuse what we actually want. Children have this amazing quality where their innocence allows them to think boldly and outside of the box. In those early years before limits are placed upon them they get to dream of being veterinarian astronauts or a doctor who sells out concerts when they're not practicing medicine. It seems silly but it's actually an amazing quality to have but as adults a lot of us lose that wonder, that audacity. We lose the ability to dream and see the world as a place with endless possibilities.

To live a life that is not of your own design is tragic and while to say it's a slow death may be overdramatic it's certainly no way to live.

Do you want to start to Define The Life You Want? Here are a few tips to get started:

1. Write down the last time you felt happy. What were you doing? Who were you with? ____________________________________________________________________________________

2. Complete this sentence: I feel at my best when I'm ____________________.

3. If I could live anyplace in the world it would ________________________.

4. When you were a child what was your favorite pass-time?____________________________________________________________________________________

5. If someone asked your best friend what your best asset is what would he/she say?_____________________________________________________________________________________
