How to Predict Your Next 5 Years

How would you like to predict what your next 5 years of life will be like?

Predict Your Next Five Years

crystal-ball.px_250According to Jim Rohn, it's easy – just look at the last five! Does that fill you with delight or with horror?

Speaking to a group of teenagers, Jim defines the passage from childhood to maturity as the time when you take responsibility for your own life.

At one time I had included a YouTube video here, but sadly it was removed from YouTube.

That's a great shame – however, I hope you will be interested to read the notes I took when I watched the video.

Two Signs of Maturity

  1. Don't apologize if you do well
  2. Don't complain if you don't

10 Reasons For Failure

It's easy to blame:

  • Government
  • Taxes
  • Prices
  • The weather
  • Traffic
  • Your car
  • Your relatives
  • Your neighbours
  • The economy
  • Your community

However the real reason for failure is NOT on the list above. Look in the mirror to find out.

Those things happen to everybody else too – it rains on the rich, their cars break down, their relatives maybe even shun them.

It's not what happens to you that determines the quality of your life, but what you DO with it.

So what will you do to change your life tomorrow? Because unless you change something there's every chance that the next five years of your life will rub along pretty much the same as the last five.

I left it too late to plan for a financially secure retirement. Don't make my mistake. Start building an extra income with a part-time (or full-time) business online. Think you don't have time? Can't afford the start-up cost? Can't meet sales targets? Contact me for free advice (no obligation) on the best fit for your circumstances.

I enjoy every bit of the video, can it be downloaded?

    Hi James,

    Glad you enjoyed the video as much as I did. I liked them so much I added others to my blog.

    As for downloading them, I imagine they are posted as “tasters” for you to purchase elsewhere. They’re not something I’ve considered selling – perhaps I should – but I’m sure Amazon would be a good place to start.

Hey Joy,

I am really surprised when I read the title of your post.
I mean how can a person predict his/her upcoming years.

There are astrologers but we are not.;)
There is nothing to complain about but still people do it in their regular life.
If something goes wrong then they blame others.

How can do the prediction? Still an amazing stuff for me.

Enjoy your day Joy.:)

    Hi Ravi

    LOL – I’m glad the title achieved its purpose, which was to get you to read the post and listen to the video.

    As I’m sure you realized once you read it the idea is to take action to determine your future rather than let yourself be washed along by chance and what has gone before.

    Thanks for dropping by. Joy
