3 magic questions for identifying desires
The following 3 questions are my favorites because they are extremely effective for generating ideas for your life desires list.
1. How would you live your life if you had a billion dollars? People often limit their desires by thinking about their current salary, savings or job. Thinking about this question will allow you to identify what you would do, have or be if money wasn’t a problem. To live the life of your dreams, you first need to understand how the life of your dreams looks. Once you identify clearly what you really dream about, you will be able to develop a plan for fulfilling a dream no matter what your current circumstances are.
2. If you were guaranteed success, what would you do? People often limit their desires by thinking about potential failures and obstacles. This question will allow you to decide which desires would make your life more fulfilling if you were guaranteed success.
The answers to this question are certainly great candidates for your 100 dreams list and once fulfilled will make your life an exciting adventure.
3. Remember all the moments in your life when you felt alive, excited and happy. How could you bring more such moments to your life? You have experienced a lot of happy moments in the past that psychologist Abraham Maslow has identified as “peak experiences.” One of your aims in life is to enjoy as many happy moments as possible. If you clearly understand what caused these happy moments in the past, you will have ideas for desires that need to be added to your dreams list in order to experience more of these peak experiences in the future.

“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
