1 - The Ultimate Goal Setting Process for Young Adults: How to Create a Ten-Year Plan for Your Life

Episode Summary

In this episode of Get Real Wealthy Season 3, Quentin talks about coming up with ten-year goals for young adults who are starting their journey toward financial freedom.

Quentin says that, as Tony Robbins noted, "most people underestimate what they can do in two or three decades but overestimate what they can do in a year" we want to solve that problem by coming up with big goals for the next ten years. He says that when it comes to displaying your goals, you can use a bulletin board or a display board where you have all your plans laid out. You can also do it as a letter to yourself like you're writing a letter to somebody or writing an email to somebody from 10 years in the future. You can also do it now by describing what it looks like ten years from now to a family member.

If you choose a bulletin board, get images related to different aspects, such as financial, relationship, spiritual, social, professional self, and goals. You can outline your pictures and put them into those six different areas. You can use it as your desktop background, someplace where you look at it often. You can also do a letter for yourself describing those six areas from 10 years in the future. What does your life look like now, and what have you done with those six aspects? You can also do it as a description instead of a letter.

He further adds, "You want to take the time to be able to do this; the more time you spend doing this, the more detail you're going to put into it, the more effective this tool is going to be for you. Goal setting is important." He says that the most important piece when it comes to mindset because it will take you from where you are now to get those goals sooner than you ever thought possible. Quentin adds that you should be the person who looks at their goals every month and then works towards those goals.

He says that there are different tools and templates that you can use, including his The Action Taker’s Real Estate Investing Planner, which has helped him tremendously over the years. In conclusion, he says you should start developing your ten-year goals and displaying them. As for the homework, before you watch the next episode, have your 10 year goals set out, write them out, put them into a diagram, put them into a bulletin board, put them into a letter to yourself, have it ready, and then that way you'll be ready for the next episode.
