I asked whether you were living your dream or whether you even knew what your dream was. What is your ambition in life? Actually, is ambition and your dream the same thing? Or are ambitions tempered by reality?
Which leads me on to my next question – a question I am sure pretty much most of us have pondered at some point.
If you won the lottery, what would you do with it?
Here is your chance to live your dream the easy way. All expenses paid. But what if you don’t know what your dream is?
Do you move out to a large, personally designed house on a private beach in a hot country, complete with pool and porsche? Then what? What would you do all day? It sounds fabulous – at first. But surely it would become a little mundane day in, day out with nothing to do all day but sunbathe.
Do you travel and see all of the wonders of the world? Between travels, where would you stay? Do you need a home base? Who would you go with? Are you going to pay to take friends and family, or travel alone? What about children – can you travel for months at a time when your children need a home life and routine?
We read about lottery winners who say that the money won’t change them. They stay in their flats and carry on going to their factory jobs. Why? What was their dream? I wonder, if they are not going to make any changes to their lives, were they already living their dream? So why did they enter the lottery in the first place?
Other winners take their money and waste it in years of partying and splurging. Was that their ambition, to live a rockstar lifestyle without the actual work (rockstars have to make their money working too, you know)? Maybe it was not knowing what their dream was that made them fritter all that potential away?
