Creating your future, create your Vision board

Imagine its Saturday afternoon, sun is shining and the final game of the season is about to start. You are there in your team kit cheering along with 60,000 other fans. It's the game you have been waiting for, the game to decide the premier league champions !! City Vs United. 

The player have been running around the pitch for 86 minutes......
The top scoring striker makes a run for the far end, he gets the ball, he runs he shoots and .................. Unbelieveable...  The Goal post are missing !!!!

What a was the point of that ....?

 Research shows a person who sets goals will always achieve more than someone without a goal. If you don't have a target, how do you know when you have reach it?
'Give me a stock clerk with a goal  and I’ll give you man who will make history – but give me a man without a goal and I’ll give you a stock clerk.' Zig Ziglar

A proven way to achieve everything in life is to visualise your goals.. 

Make a list of your top 10 for each 
1) What you would like to  have, See/do or become  in the next 6-12months (value upto £1000) 

2) What you would like to  have, See/do or become in the next 1-3 years (value  £1000- 5000)

3) Imagine you have just won the Euromillions lottery - what would you see and do, what would you buy, and who would you share it with ..... Use your imagination !!!! ( you will probably have more than 10 in this list) 

4) You have the time and money you need/want ... What cause (charity) or purpose would you like to support. What is dear to your heart who would you help ? 

Now that you have made a list for each point, to visualise you need to replace each list item with an image (hint google search -images) 

Now you should have over 30+ images .....
Print out each image and paste as a collage onto at least an A3 page.
You can also place a date by each one so you have a deadline to achieve....

Frame your Collage -your new Vision Board !!

Hang in a prominent position where you will see it everyday !!

Change your location, Change your luck ...

The definition of Insanity: "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein

Imagine you go to work and see your colleages everyday.
Go to gym and work out with your gym buddy
Go to pub, regular pint, sunday lunches and meet your friends..
You become a creature of habit...

Now repeat that every week for 52 weeks.....and then repeat for 40+ years...
Next thing you know you are on the 40:40:40 Plan   ....
Working 40 hours a week, for 40 years to retire with about 40% pension

That is the PLAN for 95% of people.  This is the plan we are taught in school.  Get good grades so you can  get a good job.  The job will pay you for life until you hit 65-70 years OLD...... then you can retire and live comfortably on about 40% of your income....

Some people realise that they do NOT want to continue on in the rat race.  They take control of their future and not leave it up to the government or other people. Design your own life.....

"If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you...... Not much." - Jim Rohn

So what can you do to change your life. Change just ONE THING!!
Change your routine
Change your lifestyle
Change your your friends ( get new ones)
Change your job...
Change your home/location

Changing one thing, can lead you to new opportunities you never imagined.......
A chance meeting with someone new, who COULD have a life changing impact on your life.

Change ONE thing and see how the world around you can be transformed....

We started changing our life plan, one step at a time and this is has led to a seriously different future. 
Our new home ................ it WAS a dream NOW A REALITY..........

The Futures Bright The Futures Purple and white ( TFBTFPAW )

In these times of uncertainty we look to see what the future holds.  Sadly it does NOT look good right now for most people.  Recession, job cuts, pay freezes, Pay cuts, part time hours.  To add to the misery increase in taxes, petrol prices and general  cost of living..

This results in people saving money, spending less, staying home, cutting back on leisure activities and less holidays. Which results in lower sales for the retail sector, quieter shops, bars, hotels and restaraunts.  Which inevitably leads to jobs cuts, less staff and more stress for those left to do double the work.

Imagine this for the next 5, 10, 20 years..  Is there a light at the end of the tunnel?
Does your tunnel end at age 65, 70 or 75? Any further on and you are more likely to see a different kind of light ...

This reminds me of  a story about  a Howling dog.................
 A motorist was driving through the countryside when he broke down.  No signal on his mobile he walked to the nearest farm house.   He knocked on the door and the Farmer answered.
'Hi there' said the driver ' Can you help me? I have broken down and need to use your phone to call a recovery company'.
The farmer said 'yes sure not a problem.  Let me go and get the phone.'
As the Driver Waited on the porch he heard a loud howling, he looked down to the side.  Lying there was a a big dog.   He looked like he was in pain, as he howled again.

When the farmer returned, the driver said to the Farmer.' I dont mean to be rude but it looks like your dog is in pain, shouldn't you get it some medical help?

The Farmer said ' Don't worry about old Bernie...  He is lying on a rusty nail..... He is in pain, however, IT DOES NOT HURT HIM ENOUGH TO  GET UP AND MOVE, instead he will lie there and moan'

In life people will moan and groan about their situation but they will NOT take action to help themselves.....
Your current situation is the sum of your decisions and actions (or inaction).....

People in our business believe 'The futures Bright, The Futures Purple and White (
We  believe in taking action and taking responsiblity for our situation.  It is up to you to 'get off that proverbial rusty nail' ....

If you have made a decision to get out of the rat race you need to read - at Amazon ' How is that working?

What's In A share Price

When Looking at a company, the share price is a great indicator of the performance of the company.

In this current climate of recession the charts for most companies are going in a downward direction.

So where do you put your money............ NOT the banks I here you say

What company do you invest in?
I am no financial advisor but GUESS where I would put my money.

Did you wish you had considered this company ?  Telecom Plus !!
The last 5 years show a not so steady increase.  And all by word of mouth recommendations

I was lucky enough to make the right decision to join and be given/bought a whole load of shares...

Now they are worth a fair amount I would say.......

This is not the end of the story.    I have seen what the company have planned for the next fews years.  These are exciting times.  I believe this is just the beginning.  The company have barely got over 1% of the current market, so there is 98%+ still waiting .....

We all still have an amazing opportunity to  create a life of our choosing with the right financial vehicle....
What will you choose the 40:40:40 Plan ( 40 hours per week for 40 years to get 40% pension)
Or a 4-5 year plan with Utility Warehouse ( Telecom Plus)
