One of the fundamentals of my formula for success is mindset. Your perspective, roadmap, and destination must be locked in. Otherwise, you can’t achieve any target. Here’s what I think about whether you make a bucket list or not can keep you on track to 10X your life…
Set MASSIVE Goals or Make a Bucket List?
The statistic I shared above indicates that writing down your goals sets you up for success. And most people believe that’s what they’re doing when they make a bucket list.
UNFORTUNATELY, THEY’RE WRONG. AND IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE TO YOUR OUTCOME.
But what is it that makes a massive goal or bucket list item? This can get tricky because the same thing can be one, or the other, or both!
It all comes down to intention and motivation.
For example, we are going to use climbing Mount Everest…
Climbing the Earth’s highest mountain is definitely a big enough challenge. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it make it on a few of your bucket lists.
YOUR “WHY” IS WHAT DISTINGUISHES WHO ENDS UP ON THE TOP OF THAT MOUNTAIN.
A goal — the one you should write down every day — is about pulling towards your full potential.
So, reaching the summit would be a goal if it was pushed to a limit like your physical stamina. Also, it’s a goal if it represents something intangible like conquering a fear.
WHEN PEOPLE MAKE A BUCKET LIST, THERE IS NO REAL FORCE BEHIND THE “WANT” OF THEIR LIST ITEM.
Therefore, you’re not going to put in the work for Everest if all you’re looking for from that hard climb is a nice view…
Get the picture?
However, I’m not telling you to throw away that bucket list you worked so hard to make just yet…
Is There a Place and Time for the Bucket List?
To be honest, I don’t think it’s a complete waste of time to make a bucket list.
In fact, you should push yourself to a level of success where you have the freedom to do things just for the hell of it…
And that level of financial freedom comes from having and working towards goals. Also, you’ll need guidance for when you fall off track or don’t know where to start.
Nonetheless, make your goals powerful enough to pull you through anything. Then, pull out the dusty bucket list once you’ve crushed everything else.
