I think that you could take a lot of different approaches to this prompt. Depending on how formal you want to be, you could do anything from imagining yourself as a successful person, to surviving in a post-apocalyptic world.
I think that the main idea behind this prompt is to gauge your aspirations and your goals in life. If you are looking for something more formal, then I would highly suggest you describe your dream life. Something that you could only hope for right now. That way it shows that you are not only capable of dreaming big, but also able to articulate your goal.
On the flip side, I think that if you took the more creative path and did described your life in an improbable scenario like the U.S. having become a different country, or the zombie apocalypse happening, then I would suggest that you show your personality through your actions in this challenging scenario, such as leadership ability, and creativity.
Hope this helped!
