Essay on Where I Will be in Ten Years
742 Words3 Pages
As a senior in high school many students ponder the big question of life that seems to be asked by many. No that question is not where do you want to go to college, what are you doing after high school, that question would be where do you see yourself in ten years. As I reflect on my childhood I have many dreams and aspirations that I would like to accomplish within the next ten years of my life. In ten years I can see myself having many of my goal accomplished, if not accomplished, I will be working on accomplishing those goals to fulfill my life.
I live with my mommy and daddy in La Cresta along with my brother. I have many friends in my life right now, but i don’t want to drag on this paper with all of…show more content…
I hope to attend drag racing school sometime within a year after I graduate, so I can achieve my goal of becoming a drag racer. I plan to achieve my goals because I know that if I truly put my mind to something, I can do anything I want to do.
Ten years down the road I see myself doing many things, living the typical life of an adult. I would hopefully like to start a nice family with a beautiful wife. In ten years I see my life hopefully going the way that I would like it to be. I would like to be drag racing, while still maintaining my own business. Along with owning my golf cart business, I would like to
further develop that into a motor sports shop that will work on all types of trucks. In order to make sure this is all happening, I know that I will have to set myself on the right track. I will have to make sure I do not go waste my money on stupid crap. I hope to be financially secure within ten years from now.
I have many dreams and aspirations in life. I think that the biggest of all would be to become a drag racer. I have grown up around a racing background, my family is really good friends with a longtime friend, and drag racing legend John Force. I believe that he has been an inspiration and has really motivated me to want to get into the drag racing scene. This is the one dream that I would like to see come true. It can’t get any better than being behind
Your Ten-Year Plan
An exercise to dream big, and achieve those dreams!
What Is this About?
In the last episode of The Tim Ferriss Show, Tim Ferriss interviewed Debbie Millman who described an exercise she calls “Your Ten-Year Plan for a Remarkable Life”.
This is an affirmation exercise that she did when being a student of Milton Glaser in which you write a detailed description details what your life would like 10 years from now, then you read this essay every year. From her own experience (and the one of her students), the predictions are uncanny in the way that they realise themselves.
This motivated me so much that I created this small page to make this exercise more visible. You can find a transcript of the exercise, or the short audio version of Debbie Millman describing it.
Writing Your Plan
So now that you are eager to write your own plan, grab a pen, a paper, and jump into the conversation between Tim Ferriss and Debbi Millman to start achieving your big dreams (6:26). This will give you all the details, and how to best profit from this.
As a reference, you can find the part where she describes the question you need to ask yourself here (1:56), and a transcribed version just here:
So let say it is Winter 2027. What does your life look like? What are you doing? Where are you living? Who are you living with? Do you have pets? What kind of house are you in? Is it an apartment are you in the city are you in the country? What does your furniture look like? What is your bed like? What are your sheets like? What kind of clothes do you wear? What kind of hair do you have?
Tell me about your pets, tell me about your significant other, do you have children? Do you have a car? Do you have a boat? Talk about your career. What do you want? What are you reading? What are you making? What excites you? What is your health like?
And write this day, this one day ten years from now. So one day in the winter of 2027, what does your whole day look like? Start from the minute you wake up, brush your teeth, have your coffee or tea, all the way through until minute you tuck yourself in at night. What is that day like for you?
Dream big, dreams without any fear. Write it all down. You don’t have to share it with anyone other than yourself. Put your whole heart into it. And write like there is no tomorrow; write like your life depends on it because it does.
And then read it, once a year, and see what happens.
That’s it, I hope it helps you !
