LIFE BY DECADES. 1

! WHERE ARE WE GOING?

Planning a great future is three simple steps. 1 Where are we going? 1. 2 Where are we now? 2. 3 What is the next step? 3. So let’s take a closer look at your inevitable next 10 years.

PLAN AHEAD INSTEAD OF CONSTANTLY FIXING LIFE IN ARREARS Getting a developed perspective of life yet to be lived is like looking at the picture on the box of a jigsaw puzzle before starting to put the pieces together. Most people spent their last 10 years taking actions (putting pieces together) and then look at what sort of picture they have built. Generally some parts look okay and other parts look terrible, taking away from the good parts. We believe that with consistent and considered small steps, anyone can achieve the picture they want to see on their Life’s Jigsaw box. By assessing “the inevitable next ten years” we mean that it doesn’t matter what you do, ten years will inevitably go by whether you do something to create a balanced life or not.

DOING NOTHING ABOUT YOUR FUTURE IS NOT AN OPTION

Let’s start…..

BALANCE ANALYSIS. 2

WHERE ARE WE NOW?

To see where you are now let’s take a look at your current Balance Analysis.

GIVE TIME TO ALL AREAS ONGOING OR WE WILL GIVE TIME IN THE FUTURE IN CRISIS MODE. Consider the questions which go with the balance areas below. Review the “Balance Analysis Current Position” to get an honest view of what needs work in your life today. Mark each topic as: Great - No change needed Ok - Satisfactory but needs change soon Needs work – Needs change urgently. Of the areas that need work write down in order what is most important for you to fix first? Great Time - Sufficient uncommitted time? Relationships - Trusted personal & professional relationships? Income - Excess funds every week? Expenditure - No unpaid bills? Planning - A clear plan for all areas of your life? Personal Development - Read, Listen, Associate - Personal knowledge to support your life decisions? Health & Fitness - Sufficient health & fitness for your family? Hobbies & Interests & Holidays - Sufficient hobbies and interests and holidays? Home - Home to suit your needs and lifestyle? Investment - Sufficient genuine investment for your future? Business – Multiple Incomes - Several incomes with flexible time? Speculation - Clear understanding of the risk of speculating?

OK

Needs work

PRIORITY


People generally know the truth about their challenges, but until that TRUTH is made TRANSPARENT to their spouse and a trusted third party, the areas that are letting people down are rarely addressed. BWC Resource Centre has been the Trusted third party for many individuals and couples over the last decade helping people to think clearly and do what is required next.

REAL LIFE STORY: For me the areas that collectively brought the whole picture down were: • I wasn’t giving time to planning and monitoring each area; • I had not developed a trusted third party relationship who I could run my thoughts past to get their perspective and wisdom; • My money management was poor. I felt if I needed more I would just make more. (so dumb); • I let my home and investment become at risk to business failure; and • I continually increased our exposure to business and lifestyle debt. With the people and understanding I have today a few simple different choices would have made all the difference.

Now that you have taken a quick look at the balance areas, take a moment to reflect on your current position.

NEXT STEPS

LIFE IS LIVED FORWARDS BUT UNDERSTOOD BACKWARDS Of the 5 essentials for success listed below Desire, Work Ethic and an Opportunity will take people forward however having Coaches and being Teachable gives us understanding and wisdom going forward.

5 Essentials: DESIRE Nothing is achieved without desire. If you are a couple, one may be the visionary and it is important that the visionary is supported

WORK ETHIC Also nothing is achieved without hard work. Some people are creator workers and some are manager workers. As a couple one is likely to be the visionary and one the orderly one. Work together.

OPPORTUNITY TO MATCH DESIRE If you do not currently have the opportunity to match your desire talk to the BWC team to discuss other possibilities that may be available.

COACHES Sporting teams at all levels would not consider competing without a head coach and specific coaches for strengthening, speed etc and they train a few nights a week and play once or twice per week. We play life 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

TEACHABILITY Only when we realise others have been where we want to go, do we become teachable. We can learn from them saving time, finances and anxiety. It takes humility but the rewards are outstanding.

• The BWC Training program will take you through 12 topics delivered over a 3 month period. • The cycle is repeated reviewing the foundations and adding advanced learning within each topic. • The repetition creates habit which leads to a culture of outstanding personal management. • This becomes the foundation on which successful investments and business are built.

TESTIMONIALS “When I started with BWC Resource Centre I thought that most of the information was fairly straight forward and I struggled to understand the benefits. It was only after I gave it a real go for a while that

I realised that I was looking at a lot of areas of my life with the wrong context. The BWC Resource centre has taught me a lot about how to prioritise, communicate with my wife about investing and think more clearly about where I want to be in the future” Hamish Ferguson 39 Financial Planner

“What a great program. When I first heard of the BWC Resource Centre I had lost control of my time, work had taken over and I didn’t seem to have time for my family, myself, my hobbies and the fun things in life. I knew what I wanted but kept straying from the path as the day to day things took up my time. I had even tried other programs, some in wealth creation… the quick fix, and others in personal management. Each time I started off okay but soon fell off the wagon. The missing link was ongoing personal support.

My biggest wake up call was looking at “the inevitable next ten years”. I didn’t want to be doing the same things at 53! That scared me…. Through regular contact with my coach and learning how to pause, reflect and plan, my life is a lot more balanced now and I am enjoying each moment rather than letting it rush past in an unorganised blur. With regular reflection on the past six months, I am more aware and able to plan for the next six months. I still have a way to go though, and with the ongoing support of my personal coach I am developing plans for a fun, balanced and wealthy life.” Jennylee Taylor 43 Project Manager

“It seems a strange part of human nature that you can know something, understand it, recommend it to clients and provide advice in respect of it, but fail to apply it to your own circumstances. A bit like mechanics having broken down cars, plumbers having leaking taps etc. By starting the programme, it has, on more than one occasion, forced me to be honest with myself and realise that it is important to practice what you preach and apply those principles to your own circumstances, regardless of your level of expertise, education or income.” Sean Shotter 36 Solicitor

As is often the case, one doesn’t seek help until a crisis is upon them. In my case I was heavily in debt on a dual occupancy development that was going south very quickly, it was my first attempt at property development and of course I was lacking some of the necessary skills, knowledge and connections. Thankfully my mortgage broker recognised my predicament and organised a meeting with the BWC team. That’s when it all changed and the situation started to rapidly improve! Although I had to extract myself from the development and in the process cop a reasonable loss, BWC advice and coaching ensured that I not only survived but came out in good shape, and has also helped lay a foundation on which my partner and I can forge ahead into a bright future. It’s just over 2 years since the “world came tumbling down”, yet we are already looking at our next investment or development opportunity and I have never felt more in control.” Geoff Yeatman 40 Aircraft engineer

“We are so thankful that we discovered BWC at the time we did. We originally needed to concentrate on time management issues, but an unexpected financial crisis occurred and this revealed both the flexibility and holistic nature of the coaching program. We are now mostly through the crisis and are feeling confident about the future. The program itself is only one contributing factor to the overall success experienced. The personal trust that quickly developed in the growing friendship provided much needed emotional support during testing times. I have recommended BWC to others who have similarly benefited. Thank you Chris, Heather and BWC!” David 58 & Tuula Schaeffer State Chairman

“When we started the program we perceived wealth creation

to only involve the financial dimension. However in the last six months we have identified wealth to be multi-dimensional involving relationships, time and lifestyle. BWC reshaped our thinking and has empowered us to prosper not only financially but importantly in our marriage, in our friendships and in our communication about the future. We can now tangibly see a platform for our life to flourish. BWC has been an important tool for our dreams to materialise.” Craig 32 & Michelle Sparrow Radiologist / Teacher

Before we were introduced to the BWC resource centre we had made many starts to achieving our life goals but could never seem to get past a certain point. We had a good relationship, a good foundation, and knew some of the principles that would help us achieve, but could not practically apply them in an effective way. In a moment of desperation, after another false start, we rang BWC and were given powerful life and wealth creation principles that we could see and work with. We were teamed up with an excellent coach and quickly identified were we had been going wrong and how we could grow. We have not looked back! Jason and Rachel Squires
