    Steve…love your direct and to the point approaches. But, I was surprised at this Dream House piece.
    I am living in my dream house everyday I take the time to attend to my mind, my body, and my spirit in health, kindness, and balance.
    The physical location can vary and there is much variety to enjoy all over the planet, but if I don’t attend to where I live every moment of every day—my body—it wouldn’t matter what space on the earth I occupy.
    So I personally take responsibility for creating my DREAM HOUSE every day, thanks in part to you, wherever I am!

    Good question. My family has moved around a lot in the past years and I constantly feel unsettled. I am not sure where “home” is at this point aside from being with my family. But if you are talking about location I’m still open-minded about it. Would love to settle somewhere!

  3. Matt Petroski says:

    As always, a great critical thinking question. it makes me pause and think about my own results, my own choices, and my own vision for the future. its not about the dream house or dream location, its about the dream (or vision) we are currently working. and critically asking….are my thoughts, actions and behaviors in alignment to achieve that dream. THAT question, that critical thinking question must be asked constantly.

    Thanks Steve.

    Thanks for all you reveal to us, Steve.
    It really is a one time thing, our time on earth.
    Your wisdom has made the journey easier to
    navigate. Blessings to you & yours.

    Great, I will still like to leave in this country called Ghana, but at Lake Beach of the Volta. That is my dream house and am planning towards that. Thanks.

    Sorry Jane but I don’t agree. Many people live where they are because it is easier than planning and implementing a move. Change is uncomfortable for many wanting something different. My family and I were in a place that wasn’t for us and one day we decided that’s it. I made a plan and stayed focused on it. We now live in Pennsylvania where my mother (my parents live with us) have always wanted to live. Dad was resistant but we dragged him along and found wonderful friends. Life for all of us has become richer since the move. Now we are making a list of qualities for our vacation home(s). Thank you Steve for the posting. Have to put Grand Cayman on my vacation list.

    Great question Steve. I am currently living in Utah and there is no other place I would rather live right now. I have my family here, I love my work that I create. Great blog!

    I enjoy living where I live now, in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. But I’m definitely not living in my dream house. I have not acheived my vision yet. I have thought about what it would be like to have a second home. However, my wife and I enjoy travelling to different places and have not found a place we would want to visit often enough to make a second home worthwhile. Thanks for the question Steve.

    Hi Steve! As you already know I am a self tough student of yours. I really haven’t
    decided where I really want to live. Seeing you at the beautiful ocean site gives me a idea. I will continue to work towards my goals for now. I am getting my finances straight. Thanks to your wonderful books I know this will be achievable
    soon.

  10. I live about five miles from Lake Lanier in Flowery Branch. I was wondering if you ever do seminars at the Lake?

    First my next move will be retirement based – hopefully

    Therefore here is my criteria:

    1. Good near by medical is a major selection criteria, nothing wrong today but hey better to be prepared

    2. Within an hour of good air transportion so we can travel easily

    3. We like the water, cooler weather so the Puget Sound is very attractive

    4. More than likely on a live aboard yacht with a small land based condo when needed.

    Why are we not there – we have a small business which is not transferrable, and the market to sell a small business is not the best.

    Key factor both my Wife and I are in sync as to our plans

  12. I am not living where I want to live, because my wife doesn’t want to live there.

    Hey, Steve. Beautiful beach and beautiful day there in Grand Cayman! I’d have two homes… a penthouse condo on the Willamette River right here in Portland, OR, and a log home on a lake or river in a location to be determined (where pine trees are plentiful, it snows in the winter, but isn’t too hot in the summer – still searching for the right place). I have a vivid picture of what both will be like (and magazine photos on a dream board – I’m a visual person!). I say “will” because while I don’t own either of them now, I know the plan is in motion and it’s just a matter of action and time.
    Speaking of which, I saw a quote today that made me think of you… ?”Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” -Mark Twain
    Thanks for always reminding us that we, too, can be great.
