Ten years from today, where will you be? A decade is a long time, but it’s not that long. We’re talking 120 months. What if you could literally predict where you’ll be in 10 years? You want to control, determine, and predict the outcome of improving your conditions over time. I don’t know if I’m going to make America great again but I know I’ll make it great for a lot of Americans. I want to give you 3 simple steps that you can use to determine where you’ll be in 2027.
Step 1: Decide where you want to be and keep redefining that through time.
Making a decision costs nothing and takes almost no time. Where do you want your life to be in 2027? This isn’t just financial. It’s family, it’s recreational, it’s health, it’s all the parts of your life that are important. Where do you want your kids to be, your marriage, your business? Who do you want your friends to be? You must decide, but few people actually do this.
Clarify your goals and decide what to shoot for. If you don’t decide what your life will be 10 years from now, you won’t be able to control it. Once you do make some decisions, realize that your goals will be redefined over the years. Keep making new decisions because life keeps changing. Life is not static—things change along the way. In the next 5 years something will change and you have new, different goals—or maybe the same goals but they will expand.
Step 2: Study people who have achieved where you want to be.
One of the things I do to improve my condition is to study people who are doing better than I am. It’s a hack—a simple thing to do. This takes some time and money but can be done through books and programs if the person you are studying took the time to put in print how they did what they did.
People do all their studying the first part of their life when they are under 18 and they don’t have control over what they want to do because they are just kids. Study people now that you are older and even while you have a great job. Very few people who make it huge take the time to share with you how they did it. Find someone willing to share their life, who is willing to keep the curtain open.
How do you study people? If a person is open, they will have it written down. Besides learning what to do, I learn what not to do from people. I may love some of the stuff they do, but I don’t want to be them. Tony Robbins built a great business, but that’s not the guy I want to be. I’ve met other guys that are brilliant—making a lot of money—but they didn’t have the full package; like they weren’t a good dad or their marriage was a wreck. Study the good but be aware of what they don’t excel at.
Step 3: Get in the presence of those who have done what you want to do.
This is clearly the most expensive, the costliest in terms of time and energy—but this is the mack daddy. If you spend time with those who have achieved what you want to achieve, you increase your chances by 1000X. This is the most difficult, the most complicated, the most expensive, the most time extensive. But the multipliers on this are huge.
Before you try and meet with them, make sure you have already studied all they have written. Don’t skip from step 1 to step 3 without first completing step 2. If you’re worried about if someone is the real deal or not, you need to do some more research. If they are the real deal but don’t fit what you want to be doing, that doesn’t work either.
Where you will be in 10 years also depends on the actions you begin taking today. There’s never been a better opportunity to get around the kind of people you want to be with than attending the 10XGrowthCon next month. Premiere and VIP tickets are already sold out, but there are still some Executive level passes left. And being there at any level is better than not being there at all.
The bottom line is that when you make a decision you quit making excuses, and the more you blame time and money for what you don’t have, the more you won’t have any time or money. Invest in 10XGrowthCon today and start deciding where you will be in 10 years. Come to 10XGrowthCon and study those who will be speaking. I promise the ROI will be through the roof.
