How Much Money Do I Need To Live My Dream Life?

How much is your dream life going to cost you? That question stops most people. They have an idea of how much money they need in order to accomplish their dream, how much money to live in their dream home or to go on that vacation that they’ve been dreaming about, how much money is it going to cost to start that business or write that book. They have an idea in their mind that is emotionally based, but actually not based on facts, and it creates this gap from having a dream to thinking it’s going to cost too much, and so that usually stops most people. They don’t even get started because their thinking is they can’t do it.

How much is your dream life going to cost you? That question stops most people.

So how much is your dream life going to actually cost you? Have you done the numbers, have you done the research? How much is your dream life actually going to cost you? How much would that trip be? How much is the dream home? Do your research, know your numbers. Once you have those numbers, a couple things can happen. Sometimes what happens for clients is they realize the gap isn’t as big as they thought it was. They look at how much it’s going to cost and once they look at what they have available to them, the gap isn’t as big, and so all of a sudden it increases their believing that hey, I could actually do this!

The other thing that can happen is you run the numbers and now you know the number and it feels too big, and it feels overwhelming. One of my mentors Bob Proctor used to say reduce it to the ridiculous. Once you know the number you want to work with that number in your mind until you’ve made it small. What does that mean, working with the number until you’ve made it small? I had a colleague, she had an idea of a dream home by the beach in California. And when she looked at that price tag, she said to me “Stacey, it’s going to be $2 million!” and that was a really big number to her. And we worked with that $2 million number, until she had it in her mind where all of a sudden $2 million wasn’t a big number anymore. So working with a number in your mind long enough where you feel like you can actually accomplish that. That may be working with the number, and if I divided that over 20 years, or if I increased my paycheck by this amount, and you’re playing with those numbers. Bob Proctor used to carry a calculator in his pocket with him before we had cell phones, but he was constantly playing with the numbers. And he wanted to get his mind neutral about the number, because the truth is the number is neutral. Is $2 million a big number or a small number? Well it depends! It depends on your perception, it depends on your thinking.
