Focus on Who You Want to Be in the Future


Tom Corley boats - crop

Those pursuing wealth and success have a very clear vision of themselves.

Not as the person they are, while they are racing to the top. But as the person they desire to be. A sort of future version of themselves.

According to my Rich Habits research, that future version takes many years to become a reality:

  • 32 Years for Saver-Investors
  • 20 Years for Virtuosos and Senior Executives at Publicly-Held Companies and
  • 12 Years for Entrepreneurs-Dreamers

Their clear vision is what anchors them, keeping them on task, so that they continue to engage in the important daily habits that will eventually transform their vision into reality.

When I discovered this very unique success or wealth building strategy, I decided to give it a try. I created a vision of my future self. I even gave my future self a name – JC Jobs.

Since 2009, I’ve been engaging in the habits I believed the very rich and successful JC Jobs would engage in.

Nothing happened for the first few years, but I nonetheless continued to engage in JC’s daily habits.

Then, in 2013 those habits began to pay dividends in the form of additional income. That additional income continues to increase every year. Plus, JC’s habits also created additional opportunities for me to make money, which manifested in late 2018/early 2019.

So, while I am not yet the future version of myself, my old version is very much in my rear view mirror.

Success takes a long time. Consistency is the key – engaging in habits which have made other people rich and successful, will eventually make you rich and successful.

If you see yourself only as who you are, right now, you are never going to grow into the person you need to be in order for success to visit you. You must have some ideal, some clear vision of who you want to be down the road. This then becomes your roadmap, which you follow until you reach your destination – the ideal, future version of you.
