Online Life Planning

Welcome to Dream Life Design!

A personal development course designed to help you unlock your potential, increase self-awareness and plan the life you’ve always dreamed of.

My name is Terry Sidhu, I’m a life coach, and I’m looking forward to guiding you through my personal development model. Which I use to help my clients lift the burdens restricting them from really pursuing their lives.

From developing the confidence to do things they’ve always been afraid to do, through to moving on from the grip of depression and anxiety. My clients have discovered what it is they’re really capable of, and now you can too!

When I entered the personal development industry, I noticed very quickly how many tools, processes and self-help modules, imposed certain ideologies onto people. Many of which, associating complete fulfillment to monetary wealth, or aggressive campaigns telling individuals what they should be doing with their lives, and how they should be living them.

So I set about researching and developing a model which gives you, the individual, power and control over your life. I firmly believe that every single one of us has value, and the key to unlocking that value, is to connect with our truth, and embark on an honest path in life.

Through my research and experience in Psychology and Marketing, and independently delving into subjects such as spirituality, philosophy, and history, I discovered that the fundamental problem of the human experience, was in the ways which we define ourselves.

Therefore, I place your identity at the heart of your personal development, because who you are and how you live your life, should be something you define for yourself. Uninterrupted and detached from any pressure or expectation to conform to someone else’s idea of fulfillment.

Life is supposed to be fun, exciting and most importantly free, and because I work with clients across the globe, I learn every single day how possible it is, to live life your way.

So whether you’re looking to travel South East Asia like Christina from Moldova, parachute out of a plane like Andrew from The United States, or become an entrepreneur like Vanessa from Korea… you too, have what it takes to manage the unimaginable.

Enroll today and start planning the life you know you were born to live.

I’ll see you soon.

The Many Reasons Everyone Should Move Abroad at Least Once in Their Life


If you have lived in the same country all of your life, the thought of moving abroad may be one that excites you and makes you nervous in equal measure. However, as they say, life is for living. Taking the plunge and moving abroad at least once in life is something that everyone should do, and here are the many reasons why.

You will experience a new culture – There is only one place to begin, and this is with the fact that you are going to branch out and achieve something new. You will experience an entirely new culture, and this is something that a lot of people do not get to experience.

You will learn to relax – Do you feel like life is stressful? You are often caught in the hustle and bustle of work and plagued with other worries. Well, by moving abroad, you will be able to let go of these feelings. You will learn new things, discover new places, and you won’t feel as pressured while doing so.

Memories and experiences matter more – Material things are nice, but surely experiences and memories are more valuable?

It’s not as difficult as you may think – A lot of people assume that moving abroad is going to require a huge amount of upheaval; it is going to be incredibly challenging and cost a massive amount of money. This does not need to be the case. it all depends on where you move to and how you go about it. You can find plenty of assistance online. One of the more difficult aspects is securing a visa. This page on a de facto visa shows you how you can move to Australia, and there are plenty of other similar dedicated visa help pages online, so you can easily find the information you need.

You will achieve more from life – Once you move abroad, you will feel like you are able to achieve anything. This will help you to think more creatively and get more from your life. You will start making more of your dreams come true.

You will become more open minded and independent – If you speak to anyone that has lived in another country, you will find that most of them say it is the best thing they have done because it transformed them as a person. Being out of your comfort zone will result in you becoming more confident and outgoing. You will also be a lot more independent too.

Moving abroad is incredibly rewarding – When you look back, you will see that you managed to build a new home for yourself in another country. You will also see that you dealt with the stress that comes with moving to a new country. This will give you a real sense of achievement.

Enhance your CV – Moving abroad also gives you the opportunity to develop yourself professionally. In today’s competitive job market, living abroad can give you the competitive edge. You may find that you are able to secure a huge client because you understand business and cultural nuances. Plus, you are able to converse with people of all levels all over the world. This, and your improved language skills and experiences, are bound to set you apart from the other candidates whenever applying for a job.

Make new friends – Moving abroad also gives you the opportunity to make new friends. Of course, there may be nothing wrong with your current group of friends, but meeting new people is always a good thing.

Your mindset will be broadened – Your outlook on life will inevitably change once you move abroad. You will be shocked by how many things you learn, and how your mindset changes for the better.

Taxes won’t haunt you – This is undoubtedly one of the main reasons why a lot of people are tempted to move abroad. Taxes in countries like the UK are pretty hefty, and they seem to be increasing all of the time. There are some countries that offer low taxes, which can be a very tempting proposition for someone who lives in the UK at present. It means you are going to get to keep a lot more of the money you earn.

Amazing weather – Another reason to consider moving abroad is so you can enjoy delightful weather throughout the majority of the year. If you currently experience more rain than sunshine, moving abroad can offer you a slice of paradise.

Live a luxurious lifestyle – Some countries enable you to live a luxurious lifestyle without a luxury budget. Imagine waking up every morning to sunshine, walking down the beach, and starting your day off with a cocktail. Sounds great, right? Well, this is possible when moving abroad.

You will get to taste new foods – You will end up trying foods that you would not usually give a second thought to. Immersing yourself in a new culture and living like the locals do can be a lot of fun. You will notice that your tastes start to gradually change.

It is fulfilling – Last but not least, moving abroad makes you really feel like you have lived your life to the full. You feel like you have done something noteworthy and given your life great meaning.

Hopefully, you don’t need any more convincing. It is clear to see that moving abroad is something everyone should experience at least once in his or her life. This is an incredible experience, which can be exhilarating, empowering, enjoyable, and eye opening. Whether you move abroad while young or spend your years of retirement abroad, make sure you take the plunge at some point in your life, otherwise you may live to regret it.

Sponsoring Jason Silva in Vancouver!


I started The Lion’s Life about 5 years ago and today, I have my own Life Coaching practice and in a position to be able to sponsor events such as Jason Silva’s: Hack Your Reality – right here at home, Vancouver B.C.

When you love something with such passion and are dedicated to a vision of what you want out of life, never ever give up.  No really, don’t give up! Who knew I’d find myself in this position when I posted my first blog post back in 2012. Back then i never had much, all I had was a vision for what I wanted and passion for what I did. Which I realizes today,  they’re a powerful combination to have and they cost absolutely nothing.

The real cost occurs when you do give up, because over the last 5 years I had thought about it many times. When I took a shot and missed, or when I got a negative comment, and even when I thought I couldn’t power through the stress and struggle. Today’s celebrations have made me realize how crucial all of those moments were to the process.

Today I also launched my International coaching practice and as I was updating the my local site, I started to realize why all those entrepreneurs I look up to always say “do what you love.”

It wasn’t easy getting to this point, in fact it doesn’t feel any easier. However, when you manage pull in the tiniest piece of your dream into real life, the hunger to see this through grows and forces you to persevere, and see your aspirations through to the very end.

The dedication it takes to build the life you’ve always envisioned is like training for the olympics, and although I’m still preparing for my gold medal, I definitely feel like I’m on the right track with each victory along the way.

This blog right here is where it all began, and writing this post is helping me comprehend what I have manifested in my life. Scanning though the archives have really put things in perspective for me, especially now thinking ahead to the next 5 years.



The correlation between success and authenticity.

“It dawned on me that we can really class individuals by a level of authenticity, and that perhaps success and fulfillment correlates with where individuals fall on this spectrum of truth:

Two types of people

Why are you afraid?

Imitation = Fear

Imitation is an expression of fear, because we imitate to blend in, to be accepted by society, and for others to notice that we fit in and that we belong. We imitate because we’re afraid of being rejected should we ever reveal our truest selves.

Many of us, predominately in the West I feel, are searching for that sense of belonging from a very early age. Think about how a toddler behaves, they walk around confidently, wearing the rawest version of themselves. Forever curious, they’re always in search of answers. Although it may not last too long, toddlers are also very compassionate, incredibly loving and confidently expressive.

I think as conscious awareness develops, there comes a time when we become curious about ourselves and our place in this world, and I think it’s at this crucial point when fear of expression starts to develop. It’s like we spend most of our lives slowly breaking free from a cocoon and once free, we’re very quickly misguided.

As we develop some independence we turn to the world around us for guidance on this human experience. However, the world is still very much an unequal place and as we receive its messages, predominantly through mass media, the majority of us feel underrepresented. When we do not see ourselves being represented, we quickly learn to feel that this is a world in which we do not belong, so what do we do? We imitate.

We buy into popular trends, we follow false idols, and we mimic those who are presented as most-self-actualized. We often do this so blindly that it becomes normal, until the distance between who we really are and who we’ve presented ourselves to be is so wide, that we become afraid to face the truth, and/or unsure of it.

It develops an anxiety of sorts, an uncertainty about the future and thus the quest for happiness continues to be a trivial pursuit. We feed fear each time we deny ourselves the opportunity to be liberated.

What are you afraid of?

I suppose we can measure fear by how much of our lives we spend imitating others. The world accepting us for how well we imitate it, is not the world accepting us. We’re merely helping the powers at be, reinforce their egos. If we want to be represented then we must show the world who it is that needs representation. However, chances are we’re all one of a kind and when we accept this we probably won’t care for representation, because instead we’ll be seeking only inspiration.

Remember the key to fulfillment, in any aspect of life, is a strong and affirmed identity.

Be you. Be inspired. Be Inspiring.

Work hard.

Just remember, when you reach a certain level of success you become a threat to those who never took you seriously before.

Probably because of the colour of your skin, or your gender, or perhaps a disability or orientation. Whatever is used to make you feel marginalized and dehumanized, keep working hard.

Because when you arrive at the member’s lounge and they still won’t let you in through the front door, you’ll need the strength of your integrity to kick in through the back. And when you step up to the platform make them aware that you have arrived, that you belong, and that you’re inviting all your friends.

So work hard.
