Section 1: Introduction

“How to Master Your Potential to Create Your Best Year Yet” focuses on how to better plan your life to achieve your dreams. The introduction reviews the following:

  • Content of the video series is based on what outstanding achievers do
  • The methodology they follow
  • The key stage of the Achievement Cycle

Philip explains how his approach is based on consulting with leading blue chips, and centres on the triad of Being, Doing and Having. This is critical as in most development programs the focus is entirely on Goal setting for HAVING things, rather than shaping your life holistically the way you want it to BE and DO.

Philip further introduces ‘Rocking Chair Research’ conclusions based on elderly folk sharing their perceptions of how they would use their life if they had it to live again. Shockingly, only 3-5% of people really shape and live their life the way they want to live it.

Section 2: First Steps

This video has been designed to support you in shaping your dreams. It explains how you can positively use the downloadable PDF Workbook with the sole intention of creating the most astounding year yet in all areas of your life.

Philip introduces you to the eight areas of your life where Life Planning is most relevant, and enables you work through key questions and issues. These are later pursued in more depth in Video 5, 8 and 9 of this program.

Section 3: Take Charge of Your Life

This video starts with some depressing consequences of failing to plan your life. Philip provides the structure to turn this negativity into positive and profitable Life Planning. This video poses the question of the unpalatable consequences of poor Life Management. With increasing life expectancy of 87 + years the average person is going to retire early and broke, and have a dismal old age.

Wanting to turn things around fast, Philip discusses the ‘how to’ of shaping your life using the ‘Most Important Goals’ to living your life the way you want to live. This could be a major turning point in your life when you actively consider and respond to these questions.

Section 4: Everything You Are Was Once Only An Idea

Here we focus on manifesting your ideas through your imagination. You are posed with vital life questions. This video promotes a strong theme of self-development, encouraging you in creating your life the way you could imagine you want to live it.

You have to answer some vital questions.

Philip talks about the importance of rehearsing in order to achieve perfection and suggests how using this approach you can reshape your life goals within 10 days. He states that ‘failing to plan your life is planning to fail’.

Section 5: Your Life Line

You need to know all about creating your Life Line. This video talks you through the process for all areas of your life, and positively links this to how you want to Be, Do and Have everything.

It encourages you to share your Life Line with significant others in your life.

Section 6: Secrets Of Goal Setting Goes Way Beyond SMART
Focus on balance in Goal Setting and gaining flexibility in all of your Life Goals. In-depth questions are posed. This content of this Video will require significant work to address all issues under the eight Life areas to which Philip refers. There are at least 35 critical questions you have the opportunity to study in depth, in order to shape your life the way you want to live it.
Section 7: Conflicting And Complimentary Goals
This video introduces you to the concept of developing complementary goals rather than trying to pursue conflicting goals. Here, you explore the importance of ‘Desire’ and ‘Belief’ in goals setting. Philip also explores the importance of exploring and amplifying the benefits of each goal as well as measuring progress, overcoming barriers and developing a success log.
Section 8: The Achievement Cycle And Your Beliefs

Video 8 is one of the longer videos, and explores the important role of your personal beliefs and how this fits within the four stages of the ‘Achievement Cycle’. Philip takes you through each of the four stages of Goals, Beliefs, Action and Results. Philip explores the critical role that empowering and self-limiting beliefs can play in achieving your ambitions.

Philip will take you through some of the key issues to banish those ‘self limits’ and put you on track to creating your future.

Section 9: Changing Your Beliefs
This is a vital video in supporting you to change your beliefs, banishing those self-limits and building a positive belief system. Phil talks about the formation of beliefs and an approach to support you in removing negative beliefs and replacing them with empowering ones. He talks about the ‘three legged stool’ and how this achieved with reference to how Helen overcame self-limiting behaviour that was created by others.
Section 10: Taking Action
Philip summarises his approach to creating your Best Year Yet. This is founded on the Achievement Cycle, and pays close attention to the importance of each of the four stages of goal setting, belief management, taking action, and reviewing and measuring your results.
