5 + 5 = Your Dream

I know you’re thinking…Okay John, 5+5 does not equal 5 so let me please explain. Let’s start

with a question. How many times have you heard that you need to have a “long term” goal and

be focused for the entire length of that “long term”? In this article, I am going to focus on a 5

year goal and explain how you will know if you are truly on track to achieve your 5 year goal in

life. In the equation, the answer 5 is your ?ve-year goal and the 5+5 is the underlying secret to

attaining that goal.


As I speak with numerous people on a daily basis, I hear their frustration about their goals

that they’ve set and the lack of progress that they have made. As I say, “A mountain is built one

pebble at a time and climbed one step at a time.”


The ?rst “5” in the equation represents the 5 people that you call your friends, associates, etc.

I suggest that you make a list of the 5 people that you associate with on a regular basis, and

then take a good look at it to see if they either have goals similar to yours or are progressing

towards the achievement of a goal similar to your 5-year vision. A major key to unlock the se-

cret to your future is to be 110% conscious of the fact that you will ultimately become who you

associate with. For example, if you have dreams of becoming healthy and wealthy and your as-

sociates are overweight smokers that complain about working one-minute overtime, then I can

predict the odds of you being healthy and wealthy are slim to none. Millions of people never

attain their dreams, because their “friends” serve as “cement shoes” as they walk towards their

goals in life. As I set my goals, I surround myself with people who are on the same path in life

that I am on. If you truly internalize this same mindset, then you can achieve your goals in life.

The second “5” in the equation is to take a personal inventory of the last 5 books that you have

read or CDs that you have listened to. Just for fun, the next time one of your friends complains

about something, ask them what were the last 5 books that they have read or CDs they have

listened to. You will get one of two answers: I do not remember or I do not have the time to

read. Your last 5 books that you read will determine where your focus or direction is in life. The

average person reads 1 book a year after high school, which is the #1 reason why 97% of people

are “dead broke at age 65”.


Even the greatest computer in the world needs to be programmed in order to perform its func-

tions. We are all designed for greatness, but we need to be conscious of our associations and

what we are reading or listening to on a daily basis will decide the level of greatness that we

all reach. Decide today to focus on your 5 year goal and realize that your 5 friends and the 5

books/cd’s that you listen to will determine if you hit your Why or not. Success is simple, but

not easy because it takes the ability to grow, stretch, search and learn to enjoy everyday as you

progress towards your 5-year goal.


5 + 5 = 5, give it a try and let me know if it works for you. I can actually predict your results…
