IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU WANT TO BE IN 5 YEARS YOU ARE ALREADY THERE! 
This is a quote that I heard at a seminar in Brisbane when I was 19 that changed my life. 
The speaker then when on to say that most of us settle for average and mediocrity in our own minds, somewhere between the age of 15 and 25. Fuck that!

When we are born our minds don’t have limitations. That is something that we learn. We learn and program into ourselves that “we can’t do that” or “can’t achieve this”. Self-doubt is the biggest killer of dreams ever. Think about it, as kids we think we can achieve anything and then somehow, we slowly let our dreams die. So, we settle for a boring life. That is Man-not-tastic! Screw that!

Quite often the difference between a man with an exciting set of compelling goals that lights him up and someone who lives an average life is simply the 1-2 hours it takes to commit things to paper, come up with an exciting vision and pick up and move the compass rather than just accepting that this is the hand that life has given you. Remember “you are only one decision away from a totally different life.

Your Ultimate Mantastic Life Goals and 5 Year + Vision is designed to take the lid off your mind and stretch your thinking.
The goal is that we design your ultimate “if you could achieve anything in life list”. This list will include all of your ultimate life goals as well as experiences and accomplishments and things you own.
Remember, you are not thinking “can I achieve this”. You are thinking without any
Here are some questions to get you thinking:
5 Year + Goals

- What is your Ultimate Wealth Goal? What net worth would you like to retire with?  
- What are your ultimate Business and Career goals and dreams?
- What significant achievements would you like to accomplish in your lifetime?
(this could include Business, Career, Sporting achievements or anything else that is significant to you )
- What places would you like to travel to in your lifetime?
(this should be a BIG list – you only get one life…might as well see the world)
- What Mantastic experiences would you experience in your lifetime?
(This could include going to the Olympics, Formula 1, Super Bowl, NBA Game 7, AFL Grand Final, drinking champagne in Champagne, riding the gondola in Venice, Snorkeling in Hawaii or Fiji, Skiing in Whistler or Aspen and the list goes on! ) 
- What people would you like to meet in your lifetime? 
- What is your goal age to live to?
- What are your family and relationship goals?
- Describe your dream home. Which City is it in?
- What is your dream car?
- What material possessions would you like to own and what are your ultimate Manbranding goals and things you would like in your wardrobe?
- What things have you been able to do for others during your lifetime?
Goals Are Milestones In Your Vision

Mantastic! We have set the overall life vision for You Pty Ltd. Now it’s time to set some goals. I like to do this by reverse engineering from 12-24 months into the future. Why? Because in 12-24 months you can create some dramatic change, build a business, increase your income, increase your skill set and massively change your life.
This time frame also allows you to focus.
Imagine two people with a picture puzzle. The first person has all of the pieces but no puzzle box to show them the picture they are creating. The second person has all of the pieces and the picture box, so they know exactly the picture they are creating.
Who do you think will finish the puzzle first? Obviously the second person because they know what they are creating.
However, most men in life are more like the first person. They get up each day and get busy at the puzzle without knowing what they are really trying to create. No wonder they end up unhappy.
What’s the moral of the story? Don’t be like the first person! Know what you are creating.

Let’s chat about you creating and living your version of a Mantastic Life now. Here are some questions to ponder before we get to writing down specifics.

 • What does a 10/10 day look like for you?
 • What’s happening in your business or career?
 • How many hours per week do you want to be working?
 • What are your financial goals? How much income do you need to live the lifestyle you want? At what age do you want to become financially dependent so that this lifestyle can be funded from your assets?
 • What mentors (aka Mantors) do you need in your life to help you achieve your vision?
 • What are the characteristics of the legends that you want to have in your life?
 • What are the characteristics of your dream partner? What does your dream relationship look like?
 • What will your Manbrand be? How will you dress? What car will you drive? What words will people use to describe you?
 • What physical shape do you want to be in?
 • What skills will you have mastered to have become more valuable to the marketplace?
 • How often will you travel/ plan adventures and where to?
• And finally, if today was day 1 of your new life what would you do based on what you now know? 
I do this by asking myself this question (and usually with a glass of wine by my side) “If I were to fast forward 2 years into the future and I had just had the most Mantastic 2 years ever what would my life look like and what would have happened?”
First, I list the key areas of:
• Career/ Business
• Income
• Wealth Creation/ Investing
• Relationships
• Mantastic Adventures/ Travel
• Health/ Fitness/ Physique
• Manbrand (Cars/ Cool things you have been able to add to your wardrobe)
• Self-development/ Skills learnt
• Things I have been able to do for others
Then I list the things that have happened in these areas to make my life Mantastic. I now have a vision and can figure out exactly what I have to do to bring it to life. The mission at hand for you right now is to do the same.
In 2 year’s time, if you had your most Mantastic 2 years ever - what would have happened?
The difference between a man who has a life vision and goals and a man who doesn’t is that one took 1-2 hours to commit his goals to paper and one didn’t. Commit your goals to paper.
Create your Mantastic Life Goals List. What would you like to achieve in your life? List as many things as possible. You might want to create a book or a board. Cross things off when they are done. Plan events into your 12-month plan. Add to it when you think of more Mantastic things to do.
