Designing the Best 10 Years of Your Life – WHY and HOW…

Designing the Best 10 Years of Your Life:
Your Personal Strategic Plan for Achieving Lifelong Goals by Darren Hardy

Starting January, 5th 2010

Before we get started next week, I wanted to share with you a personal message about WHY I am doing this program… And why for FREE (I always like to know someone’s motivation)… And a little bit more about HOW it will work.

Please view my video message below:

Happy new year everyone!

Have fun, be safe and get ready!!

  1. This is a very good tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Short but very accurate information… Thanks for sharing this one.
    A must read post!

  2. Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks a lot

  3. Its hard to believe that this type of ideology is still defended at some of our nations most respected institutions. Can we not abide by the true separation between church and state (state including federally & nationally funded organizations such as universities)… Check out a free top documentary on some of the latest views of the religious fervor taking place in today’s society. Something psychological has to be occurring world wide.
    Be Well & Til Victory Always, Jon

  4. Hi Darren, I’m subscribed to Seeds of Success. when reading it today came across the next 10 years of my life and would like to know how do I get the program since it ended in march. I know it will help me greatly.

    Thanks in advance.
    Be blessed

  6. I see how everything is ran now. Ok, so Mr. Hardy, will your assistant reach out to me as well? I would love to plan my next 10 years. :) Sorry about the premature comments.

  7. I’ve subscribed to the site. I’ve joined the site. I’ve tried finding out how to join this program and I can’ figure it out to save my life. HOW do I join??

  8. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I sense strongly about it and love learning far more on this subject. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with additional details? It’s really helpful for me.

  9. Hi, Darren —

    Me, too? I stumbled on “Design the Best 10 Years…” and would LOVE to complete the work. It is THAT time in my life…

    THANK YOU for ALL that you do, and for passing this on to someone who can get me started…



  10. Hi All,

    Is this program still available? I subscribed but haven’t received anything. Looking forward for an opportunity to review and participate in the program. Thanks Darren

  11. I am normally not the guy to write comments on people’s blogs, but for this post I just had to perform it. I’ve been digging close to your blog great deal nowadays and I am super impressed, I believe you can actually emerge as the principal voices for your market. Not positive what your load is like in life, but if you started devoting a lot more effort to posting on this site, I would guess you’d start seeing a bunch of traffic soon. With ads, it may possibly become a sweet second revenue stream. Just an idea to ponder. Good luck!

  12. Hi Darren,

    Like a few others here, I’m really anxious to get started planning my next 10 years and I came across this a few months late. Could you extend access to the program to me as well? This is perfect and I don’t want to waste another minute.

  13. Hi Darren,
    i just discovered this!! Is it possible to kindly gain access to the program?
    Thanks for you what you do.


  14. I’d love to go through this program along with my wife. Are you still offering the worksheets or other support materials through email?


  15. Hi Darren,
    How do I get this program…I am emabrking on a major crossroad in my life… i am excited and scared and yet I have no real “plan” for the path that I have chosen to take.
    Please let me know.

  16. Hi Darren,

    I just came across your blog recently and the 10 year plan program. As many other people have stated here, I too have been looking for something like this for a LONG time. I was bummed to see I found it late. Are you still offering the worksheets to people excited to do the program? I’m very excited to get started as it seems many people have been giving it rave reviews!

    I look forward to your replay, and thanks for creating what’s sounds like an amazing program!


  17. Darren – Your blog came to be via another blogger about 6 weeks ago and I have found myself visiting your site on a regular basis ever since. Your postings are very inspirational and helpful. I’ve started reading through the postings for the 10 year plan; is there anyway I can get the worksheets?

    Best Regards,


  18. Darren, Is there any way I could get the worksheets or program too? I really enjoy your magazine and website, they help to keep me thinking and filled with optimism. Best Wishes, Sam

  19. Darren, The worksheets and plan sounds great, any way I can get them? I really enjoy your magazine and website; they help to keep me upbeat and moving forward! Thanks, Sam

  20. The program isn’t available for purchase just yet, Jordan. But I went ahead and forwarded your info along to my assistant Maggie so she can help you out. :)

  21. Hi Darren,

    Stephanie L. Jones was telling me about this 10 year plan that you’ve laid out – she said it literally saved and changed her life at the same time. Stepanie advised that she’s also more focused. How can I get my hands on this information? I’ve been looking for an in-depth plan such as this. I’m ready to go to the next level! Please advise….I appreciate all you do!

  22. Hi Darren, I have been looking for this type of layout for a 10 year plan! Stephanie L. Jones just told me about it yesterday, she said it literally saved and changed her life. How can I get my hands on this, I can tell the impact it has been on Stepanie’s life. Please advise..Im eager to get started! I appreciate you and your time. Thank you.

  23. Darren, you’re a MAJOR inspiration to us all. Question, I just discovered this (mid-april) and obviously it’s too late to sign up for it, but is it possible to purchase the program anywhere? Thanks, all the best of continued success. I look forward to each issue (especially the CDs) Best regards, Jordan

  24. Hi Darren
    I’m sad to find out that I have waited too long for this program. It seems i’m not receiving the sheets via the mail.

    But thanks for the great magazine anyway

    Brian Bruhn

  25. Dear Mr Hardy i have studies and seen your program which was very inspiring . my general manager recommended me to see that it was help me and inspired to archive success with enthusiasm and zest

  26. I have not found it yet, but is there a location/mirrored site from which I can download these streamed videos. Even with high-speed DSL, the downloads are so choppy that the viewing experience is ridiculous.

    [MAGGIE SCOTT] Hi Charles! Sounds like you might just be experiencing a buffering issue. I recommend loading the page with the video but pausing it for a bit to let the stream buffer. After a few minutes of load time, then try watching the video. Hopefully this helps!

  27. Hi! This was just sent to me yesterday and would love to work on the rest of my life!! i have missed the first 3 weeks though, is there anyway i can get the work sheets and such…please let me know if this is possible..thanks Jennifer

    [MAGGIE SCOTT] I will get them to you asap! :)

  30. Last signer-upper…too late? I registered already but didn’t receive anything other than the usual confirmation. :)

  31. hi!!! i did my request to the package like 2 or 3 days ago and nothing on my email? is this right? should i still be waiting?

    [MAGGIE SCOTT] Hi Diana! I’ll email you the first two weeks’ materials and help make sure you’re all signed up correctly. Hang tight!

  32. Wow! I know we are well on our way in this program, but did anyone else have difficulty filling in the 10 year review? I keep coming back to that first page, but it has been a very slow process for me!!! I hope that I haven’t been the only one!!

  33. That was great, very good information. Thisw is the best program I have seen sence I came home from Iraq.

  34. Hello Darren,

    I know that the last few years has been directly linked to my mindset issues. I feel very confident and excited that your plan will change that for me.

    I am pumped,


  35. Darren i’m very excited to recieve and learn your strategic plan! My problem is i’m not very computor literate. I signed up prior to Jan 5th and still have not recieved anything. I initially signed up for your blog, then i signed up in the Design the best ten years of your life section. Maybe that’s the samething? I really don’t want to miss out. What am i doing wrong or better yet what do i need to do? Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and helping me out.

    [DARREN HARDY] Hi Scott! Maggie will be in touch very soon to get you all set up.

  36. I subscribed today, 01/11/2010, and hope that I may receive the previous information given on January 5th. I am so excited about this opportunity. My husband and I are big dreamers, planners and are working very hard to transform our dreams into goals and then finally into a success and reality! God bless you for your generousity and time! Have a joyous, blessed and prosperous day!

    [DARREN HARDY] Glad to have you and your husband aboard, Debora! Last week’s download materials will available in the next installment (being sent out late tomorrow) so you won’t miss a thing!

  37. Hi Darren,

    I subscribed on the 7th but didn’t receive the installment sent out at the end of that day or the first day that you started. Does the next installment get emailed on the 12th and will the first two installments be attached? Hopefully, that’s the only two that I have missed!!

    [DARREN HARDY] I forwarded this to my assistant, Maggie, and she should be in touch very soon. And yes, there is a new installment being emailed late tomorrow (12th) and you have only missed the first two installments.

  38. I am sure others have caught this. But just in case: The prompt at the bottom of Worksheet No. 5 should read “MY MISSION STATEMENT” and not “MY VISION STATEMENT”.

    I am pleasantly surprised with the process so far. I have done similar things over the years, and consult on strategic and tactical planning. Still, it is proving very useful for me to dive into your process and see what bubbles up.

  39. I am another late arrival just registered Jan 9th
    Anyway I can get the first installment?

    [DARREN HARDY] Most definitely! I will have it sent to you asap. :)

  40. Wonderful! I have just finished the first installment, and I must say, that at my late age, some of the questions were rather hard to answer. Yesterday was spent at doctor appointments again so I was only able to download the next set of questions now, and WOW! this is going to take much prayer and thought, but I will do it, for sure.
    Most of you are much younger than I am and I wish I would have had this opportunity 50 years ago. to those of you who are doing it now, please do not give up. your whole future depends on how you use this very valuable tool. Here’s to all of your great successes and thank You Darren, for your great and giving spirit.

  41. Yes I’m a latecomer too. Just finished the questionaire. Heard about this at coffee this morning. Listened to Darren’s video message and read some of the info- looks good so ready for some life changing strategies. Really liked the Pledge of affirmation at the beginning of the project. Thanks Darren for this opportunity.

  42. Hi, I haven’t heard you speak before;however, looking at the other comments, I certainly don’t want to miss your seminars. Unfortunately, I have just reponded, so I am hoping that I am still able to participate.

    [DARREN HARDY] You are not too late, Sharon! The next installments will have the previous materials available for download so you can easily catch up.

  43. A friend forwarded this to me and I can’t wait to join, even though I’m a little late. And I do appreciate Success Magazine. Thanks for both. Looking forward to the process.

  44. Hi. I signed up last night and confirmed my subscription this morning. I realized that it stated the first installment went out today 1/5 and I didn’t receive anything. Is there a way I can get it so I stay on track through the 8 weeks?
    Or is there anyone out there who could send it to me?
    Many thanks.

    [DARREN HARDY] Will get those to you asap. Thanks for subscribing!

  45. Darren I am so grateful that my friend Norbert recommended you and you have such a compelling program, and it launched on my Birthday. I’ll tell you I am very excited about this and I’ll be sharing it with everyone…

  46. Darren, we saw you speak for us in Anaheim Dec 5th, you were amazing!! I was just told about this course yesterday and myself and another of my business partners signed up last night. I just realized today that we may have been too late. Is there anything that can be done at this point to get in on this course? I know how crucial it is for my growth and essentially my business. It is a must have for me, so what can I do to get in?

    [DARREN HARDY] It’s definitely not too late, Jackie! As long as you subscribed you should be all set to go. The second installment, emailed Thursday (7th) evening, will even have the first set of materials so you won’t have missed a thing!

  47. Just found this and I hope ir’s not too late to share with my friends! This will be such a blessing to so many people.

  48. @ Mikki – being a positive, happy person is a choice. If you desire that, then choose to feel that way.

    – Darren, you rock! Many Thanks from me and my family. We are choosing to change our family, now and for future generations to be a part of the 3%.

  49. This offer intersects in an amazing way with the things I was already heading towards and will surely propel me forward. Heard you in Anaheim in Dec. and can’t wait for more. Prayerfully anticipating what is coming. Thank you for the opportunity to grow with this group!

  50. I am looking forward to this journey. I have been unemployed since October 2, 2009 and I have had several interviews with no success. My personal frustration of not being the bread winner has begun to wear on my family. If I can change back to the positive, happy person I was a few months ago, I would pay anything for that.

  51. I’m very much looking forward to learning all I can from this 10 year plan. My goal is to apply everything I learn to my daily life. I HAVE BEEN GETTING YOUR SUCCESS magazine for the last 4 months and love the book and the cd. I’m 66 years young and just completed my first semester at University of Central Arkansas in Conway, Arkansas. Thanks for the oppertunity to learn more about success.

  52. I have been looking forward to the release of this program and envision the end results for myself being similar to the rebirth of a Pheonix, arising from its ashes into a new era~a new me, a new 10 years!

  53. Thank-you Success Magazine and Darren Hardy for giving so much. I feel an evolutionary awakening. Never in the history of the planet has there been as great an opportunity for such broad based mastermind synergy. Thank-you for facilitating so much for free on the Internet.

  54. My sister-in-law told me about this program. I am excited to be a part of it and am looking forward to the next 8 weeks. Thank you and happy new year!

  55. Thank you, Darren, for providing this pogram. Thanks also for Success magazine and the hope and advice it gives. The CD each month is great!

  56. WOW! I am IN ! This is going to ba an awesome ride. I am looking forward to this. Thank You, Darren!

  57. Absolutely looking forward to being apart of this on going endeavor and I am definately looking forward to meeting, exceeding and achieving my goals and thus a happy, healthy, and fruitful next 10 Years and future.

    Thanks Darren

  58. PLEASE SIGN ME UP. Can’t wait to start this journey with you & others ready to make this year one to remember. Just heard you for the 1st time last nite when given a Stepping Up DVD. Your message was challenging! creative! believable! inspiring! simple! Thank you for all you do to help people become a success.

  59. Thanks Darren for the post. I know that we are all very happy that we haven’t missed anything. Thank you so much for your willingness to share such life changing information! I’ll keep watching for the email.

  60. Hi all!

    Don’t worry, you haven’t miss out on anything! The emails are always sent out later in the day so while my blog is already posted, the exclusive content you will receive via email has yet to be delivered to your email inbox. I know it is hard but please be patient just a little while longer!

    Many thanks,
    Darren Hardy

  61. Maggie, call 877-243-8383, the success store. They were very nice and got me registered. Then I did receive a confirmation email saying I had subscribed. Good luck. Don’t give up.

  62. I didn’t receive an EM or ANYTHING regarding the goal setting wrkshp that’s supposed to start today?? I’ve been transferred to 3 numbers to try to get help. Am I supposed to get and EM or go to a specific site?? I’ve checked with 3 other ppl who haven’t received anything and don’t know where to go.

    It would be nice if someone could direct me to the right spot so I can get started. Hopefully I won’t be disappointed in getting started on the first day!!

    Thank you

  63. Darren,

    I am a member of the Mortgage Coach. I would like to sign up for the course.

    Thanks for offering it to us for free.

  64. I still haven’t received my email yet either. I called the 877# post 104 above) and CSR said we would be receiving the email today, but did not give a time. Seems like a bit of a communication breakdown, but at least the “subscribe” button is working now. Be tenacious. keep pursuing this. Darren won’t let us down.

  65. I never did receive instructions on how to access the webinar, is it recorded or will there be another opportunity to receive this information?

  66. The webinar starts in a few minutes and I have not received confirmation yet. Please notify me with instructions on how to proceed

  67. Re: email not working. I called the magazine description dept and they had me call the success store 877-243-8383. They were able to key in my email address for me. They said I would not be receiving a confirmation email though, which makes me feel uncomfortable as I don’t want to miss this great opportunity. I need something to keep me on track. Good luck.

  68. When was the material supposed to be e-mailed to us, because I never got any of it? I only got all the comments people wrote on this thread.

  69. Your program sounds great! thanks for your generosity. I have signed up today (jan 05) but did not receive any details on the time or information related to the teleclass. Coul anyone help?

  70. Darren: Thanks for this offering — I don’t know how to sign up or what to do to join in today? I’ve forwarded your link to many others who are asking me the same question? What time and how do we join in today? I signed up for all your newsletters — and I don’t see any link for how to join up for the seminar. Hope you respond to me so that I can spread the word! Happy New Years ALL!

  71. Darren,
    So looking forward to the next two months. You said it ends the day before your birthday & I say it ends the day after my birthday, on the 24th of February. I’m going to be 50, so what a way to start off the next HALF of my life (yes, I plan on livin successfully till I’mm 100!). Thanks for the opportunity & I am sharing with my family & friends.

  72. Darren,

    Before we get started I just wanted to give you my sincere thanks. This is a tremendous opportunity and I am committed to giving this program 100% effort and squeezing everything that I possibly can out of it. Tomorrow is the big day, and I am ready.

    Thanks again.


  73. Mr. Hardy,

    I can hardly wait to participate in this awesome opportunity. I know that this will change my life forever, and I will always be grateful to you for allowing me to join the journey.


  74. Darren,

    I saw you speak in Anaheim last month (ACN convention, I actually shoulder patted you on your way out lol). I just want to let you know that it was the day I saw you that I made my commitment to say “You’ll either see me waving from the top or dead by the side… I AM CLIMBING THIS MOUNTAIN.”

    I thought you said this program was going to cost at the event, and I am forever grateful that it doesn’t (I obviously feel comfortable saying forever grateful at this point because I’m 100% that I will be). Anyways, just wanted to let you know that I look forward this journey, and even though I’m only 19, I feel ok letting you know now that I’ll be networking my way close enough to you to thank you in person soon enough. :)

  75. Mr. Hardy,
    Thanks so much for the opportunity to go to another level in goal setting. I’m anticipating great things in 2010 and looking forward to the 8 week journey!

  76. This is a very exciting opportunity that you are making available to all who wish to take advantage and participate. I personally thank you for your investment and hope there may be an opportunity for you to learn of the many success stories that I’m sure will arise from this special program.

  77. Darren,

    This is a very exciting opportunity that you are making available to all who wish to take advantage and participate. I personally thank you for your investment and hope there may be an opportunity for you to learn of the many success stories that I’m sure will arise from this special program.

  78. I would love to participate in the 8 week free seminar that you are offering but when I hit subscribe nothing happens. What can I do? I’m ready. Please help.

  79. “Make the plan, set the goal, do the process, fixate, remove all distractions, run like a locomotive, get it done !” Thank you Mr. Hardy

  80. Hello Darren,
    I want to start off by saying that the Success magazine is great, I look forward to every issue because there is always something in each issue that stands out. I am really excited about your “Designing the Best 10 years of your Life” program. I am in business for myself, the first year financially didnt go as expected but that is the case with most businesses in the first year. I must say I did learn a lot though. I believe this program you are offering is coming at the right time in my life, because, instead of quitting like most people do when they go into business for themselves or when something doesnt work the right way, I am looking forward to setting new goals, and changing my current mindset so I can become the successful person I know I can become. Just because the year changed over to 2010, I believe without hard work 2010 will be like any other normal year. I believe I am ahead of the pack just by signing up for the program because most people wont which is unfortunate, and a lot wont finish it or follow through. Its the 80/20 rule. So I am ready for the challenge and hope others will follow to. Thanks again Darren for doing this for everyone. Have a great 2010!!!
    Your Friend, Jerry Stirpe (Niagara Falls, Canada)

  81. RHEA:

    Just type in your e-mail in the top right hand side of this page. The dark green and black box that says DESIGN THE BEST 10 YEARS OF YOUR LIFE.

  82. I think I love you :) …I think it it sooo awesome what you are doing. Thank you for putting this out there for free. I’m always looking for ways to improve in all areas of my life and I’m looking forward to going through this process with you. I have all these things that I want to accomplish and have so much motivation that I think I drive my husband crazy :) but most of the time, with some exceptions, I’m not able to take all these ideas and goals off the ground. I am so ready to change that!!! Can’t wait for your next e-mail!

  83. Mr. Hardy,

    Success has been a pilliar for me in my life. Our family is a true fan of Success!! Thank you for this wonderful gift for the 2010. I am looking forward to the next 8 weeks.

  84. Darren,
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge through your magazine and your time through this program starting Jan. 5, 2010. Im excited for my next level of Success. Thank you.

  85. Dear MR. Hardy, I was in Anaheim when on a Sunday morning you delivered a fantastic lesson for all of us and it was like a song for an open road, a dare of dreaming again , a celebration because freedom for me was an open wound till I got here. I am also ready for 8 week program. Thank you very much,sir, Andrei Alex

  86. Thanks Darren! I have really enjoyed Success Magazine and it has truly made a difference in my life! Thanks for the giving spirit and the 8 week life panning development program! I will pay this forward and make a difference as well. I have
    been blessed by your programs in all area’s of my life! I’m Healthy, Wealthy and wise! Thanks, Thax

  87. I am an avid reader of the magazine and listener to the monthly CDs. Success magazine is just what people needs to reassure and return the confidence that we are losing each day. Darren, thanks for your time and committment to this journey. I hope to relish as much information as is offered. Rdgs,

  88. i am looking forward to your program, i am ready to participate it. thank you for sharing your great idea with us.

  89. As the saying goes.. “when the student is ready the teacher will appear”. And I am so very ready for this. Albeit with an uncomfortable feeling of knowing this is going to stretch me way out of my comfort zone. But it is time for change. I cannot keep living my life the way it has been. Thank you.

  90. I am looking forward to your lessons see if I can use them for my 4 grandchildren. They need ideas on how to get their own thing goin. Also I want to see if I can apply your lesson for myself at 72 years of age. Your sound exciting looking forward to learning something new. Thank you for taking the time to share with us.

  91. Darren, bless you for offering us this great opportunity. I’m at a crossroads in my business, mortgage/real estate, and I really feel the need for some direction. It may be time for a major career change and I’m hoping that through your mentoring I can discern the right direction to take. Thanks for this wonderful opprotunity!

  92. Darren, thank you for all the great information you include in each issue of SUCCESS and the CD is so awesome. I am truly thankful for each issue. I just started following you on Twitter and will continue to do so. I am so glad you offered the Designing the Best 10 years of Your Life program. I am sure that I will learn much from it.
    Thanks again

    Don Wilson

  93. Well, I did reasonably well in the first 25 years of my career. What haunts me is how I am going to make best for the next 25 years. What legacy I am going to leave, if any; what will give me lasting satisfaction? How can my new success contribute to be an inspiration to me and known ones. I am struggling with these and many more questions and hence the interest.

  94. First of all, I wanna thank God for you being in a position to actually return and giveback what was given to you. I have read several success books over the time and actually am starting a new business in my island of Bermuda (2 hour flight from New York). I am looking forward to the S-U-C-C-E-S-S and opportunity to learn how to procreate with the vision of doing for others and helping them be inter-dependant upon themselves. I am ready to be coached and am looking forward to achieveing far beyond the ten year stint.

  95. I listened carefully to your video message and scanned the Success website through and through, but I didn’t find any small print. It appears that not only are you giving us the cake, but also the frosting. I really need and appreciate the opportunity to learn from you.

    [DARREN HARDY] Yes, Willa – all free, no catch, no hidden agenda. I only want you to become even greater than you are now!

  96. Hi, Darren, i can’t wait to start the 8wks program. I know it’s going to do amazing things in my life. Thanks so much for being a very BIG blessing to peoples lives. Since coming in contact with success magazine through a friend, my life has not remain the same. I am planning subscribing to success magazine from Nigeria. Once again, thank you so much.

  97. Thank you so much for giving back and helping others to develop themselves for success! I am greatly looking forward to this opportunity!

  98. Hey Mr. Hardy, I’m building my own business! I have only been reading your magazine for a couple of months, and I see the potential it can bring out in people who are determined, and serious like myself. Who have the vision, the goal, and the drive to become successful for their families.

  99. Darren,

    First of all I want to wish you and your family a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! Secondly, I want to thank you for giving back to all of your motivated followers, who are people of vision. We all have a vision and are looking to make it bigger, brighter and better! This year will be especially great for me with your “Designing the Best 10 Years of Your Life” program working in my life for such a time as this. Making it free is icing on the cake! I am looking to do something differently and end the insanity, getting different results by using this eight week program as the vehicle. With great expectations I look forward to the start of a new beginning and new chapter of my life. Thanks again Darren, God bless you and your family.

  100. Than you so much for putting up this program. The last couple of days me and my wife have been sitting down and putting together a gameplan for 2010.

    We don’t have the money right now to attend coaching.

    Thank you again for putting together this program. I love the law of attraction.

    All the best in 2010. Join my movement on Facebook. 2010 will be the best year of my life. I am adding all of your blog to the page.

    Thank you again Darren,
    John Thore

  101. I simply must get out of this rut I am in and with SUCCESS and GOD and this 8 week tool I will. Thanks Darren Hardy

  102. In ten years I plan to be the one offering to freely give back. I want to thank you for helping me realize I lived the last ten years without a plan. I am exactly where I planned to be, working hard in a dead end job and broke. The next ten years will be quite different.

    Thanks Darren

  103. Darren,…

    My husband and I are very excited to begin this journey with your assistance. Thank-you for providing tools that promote personal growth and development,… :) This is a great opportunity and one we are looking forward to embracing.


  104. hello Darren, i am looking forward to your book lord know i need 10 good years id settle for one…

  105. Darren…thanks for putting out such a terrific and usefull tool such as Success magazine. I’ve been studying mentors for a couple years now and most of them appear in this magazine. I vibrate with everything about this publication. Thanks

  106. hWow. A very good friend, like an extra son to us, shared this with me this afternoon. I am amazed at the potential. I have been looking for some way to earn a little more money on the internet, because I am a bit crippled and can sit in front of the computer, but cannot do hard labour. LOL this Christmas I had the misfortune to have two heart attacks 10 days apart, so now, for sure, I can do not much else for awhile but to sit in front of the computer so that I definitely have time to work on your program, which sounds fantastic. You said, what is in store for the next ten years of your life. I say, ‘live them fully’. I am now 78 years old and I intend to overcome this physical problem with natural alternatives, not pharmaceudicals, and share this with all of our children and grandchildren. If they take it and run, then this is their choice. If not, it is also their choice. thank you for the generosity you have in offering this course, free, to all who will avail themselves of it. Jonibee

  107. Darren, your Goal Achievement Course is a great idea and so many of us need this kind of help to know that We Can be successful. Thank you.

  108. Thank you, Darren and Success magazine,

    I was unemployed for last three years, saw Success magazine and purchased it with the last money I had. I borrow money for the years subscription which has change my life completely. I have now been employed for forty-five days. With the start of the program I am looking forward to many years of success for me and my two boys. Thanks again, for making this a possibility.

  109. Thanks so much Darren for giving us such a great opportunity for free. I have always half-heartedly sat down to set my goals. However, they usually stayed in my head and never made it to paper. I am so committed to this 8-week program that you have selflessly made available to us. I am sharing this opportunity with my business partners. Thanks again!

  110. Thank you very much Darren for providing this material. I’m betting that this decade is the decade that seeds are planted to make an America capable of rocking the world with hope. Hope that comes from a people who are content, thriving, generous, free, and wishing goodwill to all mankind. Your work addresses the heart of the matter. We have the technology and you are using it. Bless you!

  111. THANK YOU DARREN!!!! I can’t express how grateful I am for you and everything you do in order to help me. I have discovered success magazine a year ago and has changed my whole view life. Every single month I read it cover to cover, listen to the CD dozens of times and study Jim Rone, J. Maxwell, N. Hill e.c. I pray for more people like you in this world. I am soo exited about the next 8 weeks together. May the Lord keep all of us in good health in 2010.

  112. Darren, Thank You for planning to share one of the many tools you been using to be successful in your life. I play the CD from SUCCESS magazine on daily basis till I get the new one. I love listening to it and it keeps me pumped up and positive everyday.


  113. This is a very timely program Darren. I know a lot of people including me would benefit with your free program. thanks and more power to SUCCESS MAGAZINE! God bless you and your family.

  114. Darren, Like so many others have said Thank you very much for your gift from God to help all of us to become successful in our lives. I just started my own skincare business and will need your help from this class for Iwant to be very successful in my life.thank you and also enjoy your magazines.

  115. Thank you, thank you, thank you! It’s like all the preparation and hard work from 2009 has come together as a foundation to participate with you and everyone else who is committed to taking a strategic approach to the next 10 years. When I look back over my life and examine the false starts, unrealized dreams and aimless direction, I can see that ACTIONABLE goal setting is what has been missing. I turned 50 recently and my life is NO WHERE CLOSE to where I thought it would be. But then again, what was I really thinking about if this is where I am? One of the things that excites me most about the upcoming 8 weeks is the opportunity to really design my future, to create an image of what I want and then go about making that happen. A dream is but a boat, but a plan is indeed the rudder. May you and yours be blessed beyond your own wildest dreams for helping us all harness the wind to our own. Thank you! This is right on time!


  116. Darren, I discovered Success magazine in mid-2009 while working to create a new life for me after going through an unwanted divorce. Your work led me to Jim Rohn and I have invested in the Jim Rohn One-Year Success Course. I will use it and your book, Designing the Best Year Ever to create a new life for me. In addition, I now look forward to your free 8-week program to help me take the long view so that I have a plan that will give me hope for life beyond this next year.

  117. Thank you Mr Hardy. I have been reading magazines, but yours is one of the best. I am always excited to read your newsletters, which are very inspiring. More grease to your elbow.

  118. Darren, Happy New Year to you and your family.

    I LOVE the first day of a New Year – I wake up very early because TODAY is the DAY I get to really change everything. The year is over and we have 365 days to create all kind of incredible opportunities. So much time – so much opportunity – so many months.

    I re-read from my goals – journals of the year in the past what I did so I know my direction. I decide what I want this year, I see how close I am to the 3 – 5 and 10 and I make changes. If it is working I stay on track and give it some new energy.

    So working with you for 8 weeks means so much – thank you. I have my husband with me – for we are committed to changing our 20 year marriage – it is time for a new growth and we are so excited.

    I will Tweet this -recommend this on Linked In – to my people on a webinar I am teaching this month, I will even change my e-mail to invite the clients and people I speak to. Thank you – I want to give back and paying it forward is my pleasure. (Oh yes my subscription is to renew in Feb. and I would love a FREE one – but if not I will still renew because we believe in Success!).

  119. Darren, Happy New Year… and thank you so much for offering this program. I am looking forward to becoming more aware of what I really want these next 10 years and writing them down in goals!
    Enjoy your magazine Success, which is filled with great articles. What a wonderful gift you are giving us.
    What you are doing reminds me of this quote by Charles M. Schwab, “A man to carry on a successful business must have imagination. He must see things as in a vision, a dream of the whole thing.”
    God Bless you and your family.

  120. Darren, Thanks so very much for your unselfish sharing of your program. I sincerely appreciate and am very grateful to have this opportunity to experience the next eight weeks and beyond. 2000 seems like just yesterday, and we’re now beginning 2010 already. I have mapped my goals for this year and am looking at designing the next ten years, thanks to your generousity. All my best to you, your family, and your organization for much continued success. Talk about sowing, your future holds lots of great reaping, not doubt about it! THANK YOU for making this program available to folks like me for free, and THANKS also for publishing such a stellar monthly publication. Take care and be safe. Frank Ingraham

  121. They say that when the student is ready, the teacher will come. Thanks so much for this awesome opportunity to enhance our lives. I WILL do all my homework and hope to be able to pass my new knowledge to others. God bless you with good health and happiness. Cordially, Devora

  122. Darren, I am really looking forward to your series and based on what you have done thus far in your life, I know it will be great. I also want to congratulate you on a great video. I see a lot of videos and you really did a great job! Thanks for helping all of us get better.

  123. I actually listened to the whole 8:45….that is a big step for me. I am looking to share this with my future stepsons. We can all use it to benefit us and those around us.

  124. Hi Darren,

    I’ve just been introduced to Success Magazine (December 2009) and am happy you are running for free the “Designing the Best Ten Years Of Your Life’. I was going to do this but couldn’t just get started. I have set goals before but am sure learning from you will help me see where l have been getting it wrong. I am in Network Marketing and l need to succeed as l am set to retire from my civil service job in ten years time and need something to do to keep myself occupied and enjoy my life before and after retirement. Am grateful to you in advance, and l know l am going to experience personal growth through you, Success magazine, Jim Rohn’s as well as other motivational material from other great motivators. Am ready to get started on 5th January 2010, and am looking forward to changing my life through your lessons.

    Happy New Year to you and your family.

    Kind Regards,

    Joyce Gichuru,

    Nairobi, Kenya.

  125. You definetely know how to create a “WoW” effect with your magazine / blog / etc. and exceed expectations. Thank you very much for doing this. Can’t wait.

  126. Hello Darren, i had an idea while listening to this Video , when you wrap up this as a package, why not add it to an affiliate program for your followers to promote ?
    Just an extra idea.

    Regards Theo

  127. Hello Darren, Happy New Year from Auckland New Zealand

    What a fantastic Idea to share with every one, i have posted your e-mail on my blog, with the news, to share with my followers on line and twitter, thanks for this great resource, i will look forward, to this also.

    Regards Theo

  128. Thank you Darren for giving free the oportunity to get masterskill for building a succesfull life.I’m your fan for years now and you’re really one of the legend on the selfgrowth and motivation field.
    Looking forward for next Tuesday!
    Warmst regards from Croatia!

  129. […] Posted: 31 Dec 2009 09:00 AM PST Designing the Best 10 Years of Your Life: Your Personal Strategic Plan for Achieving Lifelong Goals by Darren Hardy Starting January, 5th 2010 Before we get started next week I wanted to share with you a personal message of WHY I am doing this program… And why for FREE (I always like to know someone’s motivation)… And a little bit more about HOW it will work. Please view my video message below: CLICK HERE TO WATCH […]

  130. Darren,

    Thanks for sharing this and for making this available to all of us. So many people right now are open to learning and becoming “more”than they have ever been before. In the “season” we are in there is so much opportunity…this it the time to create and re-create yourself and to not lose sight of your dreams and goals and vision…Thanks again! I am looking forward to the next 8 weeks!!!

  131. Hi Darren! I am so excited about these email updates “Designing the Best 10 Years of Your Life: Your Personal Strategic Plan for Achieving Lifelong Goals”. That has been a real challenge for me to sit down and do my goals. I am eager to learn from you. I really enjoy Success Magazine and I am hoping I can renew my subscription in a couple months. I know I will miss out on a couple issues but at this time I cannot renew. Any way looking forward to learning from you.

  132. This is so cool. I feel as though I am a part of something that will gain momentum for many people and be benificial to all. The fact that you care enough to offer this at this time makes me profoundly grateful. If there were a charge, if I had to travel, if, if, if, …. I would not be able to attend, but done this way, I can. I am making a commitment to you and to all the others who are also working their way through these 8 weeks to complete each step and follow the guidelines to a more fruitful and satisfying future. I am encouraging everyone I know to participate in this extroidnary event. I heard you speak in Dallas, Tx. at the BeautiControl celebration and enjoyed it so much. I had always dreamed that I would get to hear Jim Rohn speak in person, but sadly that is not to be. However, through you, I am hearing a message that I need to take me to the next level. I hope that your program will lift the scales from my eyes as to how I can get out of my own way and accept forward movement, to lose the paralizing fear, shed old ideas and learn to believe that I really do deserve the good that life has to offer.

  133. Hello Darren! I was looking forward to hearing you speak in Anaheim and was NOT disappointed. Your discussion about the “magic” in any circumstance being me really made me think and review my life. What I discovered is that I have a fear of success rooted in my childhood when I was teased and ridiculed for easily being an A student. In response, I began to keep my accomplishments to myself so I would not be noticed and teased. I worked at blending in with the crowd. The teasing and ridicule continued into adulthood. This time from co-workers in response to my work accomplishments. Thank you for helping me to come to this realization. I am excited about the Designing the Best 10 Years of Your Life program. I am also nervous. I have set goals in the past – some I have reached; others I only wrote down. Maybe I didn’t reach them out of my unrealized fear of success. But I think this program is coming at the right time. As they say, “When the student is ready, the teacher will come.” Thank you again. And thank you for doing it for free! Happy New Year to you and your family.

  134. I am so excited to do the hard work necessity to go through this process.
    Thank you very much Darren. Great 2010!!!

  135. Thanks so much for what you’re offering. It’s just what I need to ensure “getting where I want to go.” In the meantime, Happy New Year to you too!

  136. Hello Darren, I’m compelled to chime in and tell you that reading your magazine every month and listening to your CD has truly helped me climb out of some dark places most recently. I spent years in the corporate America environment and made very good money but money isn’t everything as we know! On 2-6-09 my 6-year old daughter passed away after battling cancer for 2 years. Two months later, my position was terminated due to “budget cuts” after 10 years of employment with a company. With no time to grieve for my daughter’s passing, I was forced to think about new employment and TRY to take some action which was very difficult to say the least. I found myself wondering which direction to even go in. With no income and being a single mom with 3 other children, I knew I had to do something and desperately needed to hear words of encouragement, inspiration and wisdom. Reading your material, listening to you and your featured guests has helped me get back on track. I’m an independent consultant although not making the money yet I used to but I’m confident I will!. In addition (and this is one of my biggest accomplishments now in life besides my children), I established a non-profit organization in Sept. to help families with children battling cancer. My daughter, Jessica, taught me the meaning of hope but I didnt realize it until I heard Maxwell say it on your CD: “Hope shines brightest when the hour is darkest.” – now it all makes sense. I use it in my blogs/on my web site and when speaking to others. I have 3 teen boys and one copy of “Success For Teens”, so far! Thank you for helping me to help others!

  137. I have only discovered your magazine in the last 5 months. I decided to close one unsuccessful business and try another . I know running my own business is my calling but the fromula I cant seem to get correct. I am full term with my second child and I recieved my eviction notice today(no money left in the bank). My heart is heavy but expectant. I know when things like this happen there is usually something wonderfull to be had from it all. I am giving thanks for making it this far in a very difficult year. I cant wait to be inspired as i know this is my year. Thanks Darren

  138. I am looking forward to this journey. It sounds like just what I need.

    Thank you Darren.

    Dorene Pierceall

  139. THANK YOU for this fantastic opportunity. Enjoyed your workshop at Celebration and the BC Directors Summit!


  140. So glad to hear your January 2010 Successs CD, from my monthly Business Assist subscription. I’m 62 and has just finished putting a date in my short and long term goals. My long term goals include , 30 more years of productivity, before I retire for good. I still work full time and has no intention of getting the government pension in my old age. I need to know HOW to design the best 10 years of my life. Happy New Year.

  141. Hi Darren,

    I heard you speak at FHTM Spring Fling in San Antonio last March and I had one of the best years of my life using the principles you spoke about, I also picked up a doz. of your “Design Your Best Year Ever” work books and have spent the last week preparing for 2010 along with members of my FHTM team. We are looking forward to your course.

    May you live your dreams in 2010
    God Bless,

  142. ****Darren, I heard you speak recently in Anaheim. I am a college graduate that graduated with a Health Science Bio Mechanics Degree and after 4 years of schooling No “JOB” and No desire to create more debt, I started my first business in an industry I was Passionate about against the wishes of everyone around me. I then moved into the wonderful world of Real Estate as a young professional with similar success as with your story. In this last year I made the decision to leave Real Estate and build a global organization in a new industry and marketing concept. This new venture has exposed me to your Magazine and the contributors inside the pages. It has changed my life and outlook. I am sharing this program with 30 of my top leaders in my organization this Friday. Not only are each of us going to do the program but we are each going to invite 5 guest or team mates to join us in making 2010 the year of enlightenment. I am also committing to personally getting Success for Teens in the hands of 1,000 Teens over the next 10 years, and I will also find 100 leaders to do the same = 100,000.00 copies in the hands of our future. I find it a travesty that I considered myself educated, yet I had never studied Jim Rohn, John Maxwell, Napoleon Hill and many others, or even know who they were until you and your magazine came into my life. It’s time to awaken the next generation and inspire people to become the greatness that is inside them.

  143. At last somewhere to start wish I had done this 7 years ago when I started my business which rolled along with very little planning or goals but I had some well those are happening but as life goes so does everything else and with goals and plans being updated to these changes you stay stuck where you started, I am going to set my first goal right now and thats to finish The Life Changing Process of Goal Setting


  144. Darren,
    How can i thank you? transformation took on a force unrivelled the day that Success magazine entered my life about a year ago. It has since then picked up momentum and is continuing to breathe life in extraordinary measures.

    I am truly grateful.

  145. Darren, this is awesome…In 2009, I lved in pain and fear – not going to live that way in 2010…My mantra is Tenacity and Consistency in 2010…This program will be my foundation to live this…Thank you so much my friend…

  146. As my husband and I prepare for the coming year we’re thrilled to be a part of this awesome opportunity! Thank you for doing this!

  147. Hello Darren,
    You have no idea what this means to me. I have been reading all the information that is tied back to Success Magazine and your blog off of Facebook. I have been unemployed since October and therefore limited funds since I was the bread-winner for a family of five. I was employed by two companies in the last 24 years (7 at one and 17 at the recent one) during which time, never had to look for a job. With that said, I have been trying to regroup and focus on some new goals because my original set are at a stand still because they were based on one company – one income, for years to come!
    Thank You for this opportunity,

  148. Darren, I am so excited about this… I think I keep telling you this over and over and over again. I just can’t thank you enough for taking the time to do this for us. It’s amazing how it’s coming at the perfect time for me!
