Today we are going to take some time to go though an exercise to imagine you doing something “As You Wish”. An exercise that would give you a special opportunity to think about doing something without constraints. For this exercise, go ahead and read the question and then give your first response. Your heart and your head know your innermost dreams are, so trust your gut and don’t think about your answer too hard. Allow yourself less than 2 minutes to come up with an answer and write it down. There are no wrong answers, and you might be surprised by your responses.

As You Wish Question #1

You have just been offered the opportunity to go anywhere in the world that you want. You will get to go there for 1 month. All expenses are paid; travel, lodging, food, activities, everything! Where would you go, and why?

As You Wish Question #2

You can cook 1 recipe perfectly starting today, and going for the rest of your life. It can be any recipe that you love. You will have all the skills you need to create this dish. The ingredients will always be available to you, regardless of cost and availability. What recipe would you choose, and why?

As You Wish Question #3

Today you are in the company of a special young child. You and the child hit it off wonderfully, and together you will go on any adventure that you want today. This activity should be fun for your guest, but also secretly fulfill a dream that you have always wanted to do, but were to shy to do as an adult. Money is no object. You can be instantly transported to any destination (or stay right in your home town!) What are you going to do today, and why?

As You Wish Question #4

Today, and for the rest of your life, you will be able to speak a new language fluently. You will have perfect understanding of both the written and spoken language. You can also speak and write the language as well as a native speaker. What language would it be, and why?

As You Wish Question #5

You are about to take a trip and have the adventure that you have always dreamed of doing. There are no physical issues that will prevent this dream adventure from happening.You have no fears, anything is on the table. You have enough money, energy, and excitement to do whatever you want. What would you do, and why?

These are 5 questions that can be deeply personal. In the comments below, please let us know which question really got you thinking and dreaming. If you are comfortable writing your answer please feel free to do so. But if your answer is private, just let just know what question you are working on. Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Question #5 is the one that really got to me. I have been battling Chronic Illness for 3 years and my ability to do things like travel freely has been severely limited. I have always wanted to go to Germany and I have pretty much written off that idea because of my health.

    I love questions that make you think!

    1. Awesome! I am hoping that you get to make your Germany wish come true in some way, shape or form.

    Interesting questions. I would go back to Ireland where my family originated. Loved visiting and felt right at home.

  3. This is a fun exercise! You get a chance to learn a little more about yourself while at the same time relinquish any fears (for just a moment) so you can dare to daydream your biggest dreams! If I could speak and write any language fluently it would Latin. Although it is considered a dead language, it is the foundation of many other languages. I believe if I was totally fluent in that then languages like Spanish, French & Italian would be fairly easy to master.

  4. What a great exercise your have here! Have to implement this in my life!
