The problem is that people don't have enough patience. Lack of patience means a lack of perspective. They don't have their foot in reality. They're just guided by the desire to fulfill their needs as opposed to expressing themselves.
A 10-year plan requires an expression. It requires you to put in the work, build yourself up slowly, and to stop thinking about short-term which is a bad habit that people have. We're all being told about instant gratification.
What gets you is a lack of understanding about what you want. You see somebody that has something, you suddenly want that.
A lot of guys think that they really want something but in reality it's just envy. They just want what other people want.
Find out what you want in your lifestyle and be very specific.
Also envision how you feel. How do you want people to react to you? How do you want people to respect you? Don't just look at the girls wanting you. Look at how they feel.
This is something that people don't look into because they just want superficial things. What I want is a life where, when I am 40, they will be the ones who come to me. I won't be putting in any effort.
This cannot happen if you have a two-year goal. This only happens when you build something of value. People will want to come to you and it takes time. When you give yourself a 10-year plan, you have more space to maneuver.
You're thinking is more dimensional. It's more rooted in reality. There is more patience.
You rely on other people's lack of patience. People are not looking in nature to see how things really work. A flower doesn't come out before the roots are created.
Shift goals from the inside to the outside. This means not getting that girl today. It means being alone. It means reconstructing yourself and realizing you have a long way to go.
The biggest cause of failure is that people just aren't willing to put in the time. If you want to succeed, have patience, have a goal, and give yourself 10 years.
You can do so much during that period.
