The GAME Plan Explained

The Game Plan Is A Natural Cycle From Creation to Manfestation


The Game Plan is a philosophy and psychology of great theoretical and practical depth that deals with the whole person. The Game Plan is a system of personal development and self-realisation that helps you live life to the full. It is a universal set of timeless principles belonging to all humanity that we organise into an actionable, sequential framework of thinking.


The Game Plan is a future-ready financial planning process suitable for non-intermediating financial planners.


This planning method is multi-dimensional following the whole-person paradigm.


We are four-natured beings in whom spirituality, emotionality, materialism, and intellectualism coexist. The first two natures relate to self-transcendence and our inner world of intuition and meaning, the latter two to self-actualisation and our outer world of instinct and money. Our intuitive and instinctive impulses are so deeply opposed to one another and yet the paradox is they must coexist in balance for us to live a life well-lived.


This is what we mean by creating wealth in every area of your life. Mind. Body. Heart. Spirit.


As Stephen R. Covey explains in the 8th Habit, " The four basic needs are to live, to learn, to love, and to leave a lasting legacy".


How do we manifest wealth in every area of our lives?


On your journey for reconciliation of opposing forces, you must traverse four peaks, of the G.A.M.E. plan.


  • Goals: Path of Love – the journey from intuition and spiritual intelligence SQ to emotional intelligence EQ.
  • Actions: Path of Grounding – the journey from emotional intelligence EQ to instinct and physical intelligence PQ.
  • Means: Path of Numbers – the journey from physical intelligence PQ to rational intelligence IQ.
  • Execution: Path of Manifestation – the journey from rational intelligence IQ to spiritual intelligence SQ.


The Four Basic Needs

To Live, to Learn, to Love, and to Leave a Legacy. 



The GAME Plan takes you on a cycle from creation to manifestation through Goals, Actions, Means, and Execution. Building on the highest manifestations of personal influence: Conscience, Passion, Discipline, and Vision.

Let us explain the various quadrants in the cycle.


The G.A.M.E. Quadrants


Our Execution journey takes us from thoughts to beliefs. Here we coach implementation and review. The output is an Execution Plan.


Our Goals journey takes us from beliefs to feelings. Here we set big inspiring goals in the four dimensions of life. The output is a Purpose Statement.


Our Means journey takes us from actions to thoughts. Here we create the financial architecture to support our dreams. The output is a Financial Plan.


Our Actions journey takes us from feelings to actions. Here we look at obstacles and ground our vision. The output is an Action Plan.


Goals (Step one)

Through the goals phase, we create, relate to, and connect with your ideal life in mind, body, heart, and spirit. The result is to know what you love.


We identify your values to give the planned integrity and your gifted potential from which we define your life purpose. The result is to know what you are good at.


We combine what you are good at and what you love into a passion. We light the lamp of inspiration within by a purpose statement. We do not judge or evaluate the statement; we simply observe it. 


Our Goals journey takes us from beliefs to feelings.


Actions (Step two)

Through the actions phase, we take your inspiring goals through a testing ground to create a practical project plan. We have socialised the goals to navigate obstacles and achieve practical solutions that we instinctually know will work. We ground your vision. We keep the lamp lit within. The output is an action plan.


In the Action quadrant of the cycle from creation to manifestation, East to South, the journey takes us from socialising your goals by communication, to grounding them, making them realistic and achievable in the physical realm.


Getting things done is tough! Here you get to confront the Higher-Way Robber seeking to steal your dreams.


Our Actions journey takes us from feelings to actions.


Means (Step three)

Through the means phase, we transform actions into a financial model which we stress test numerically to define realistic strategies and timescales for implementation. We have taken actions we instinctually know will work and through in-depth analysis and modelling we achieve wise, manageable solutions for implementation. The output is a financial plan.


9 times in 10, we need to create more wealth. People create wealth, not products. Here we create a business plan to drop into the cash flow forecast to make good the shortfall. We provide education on running your own finances.


Our Means journey takes us from actions to thoughts.


Execution (Step four)

Through the execution phase, you implement the financial plan by manifesting the changes you want to see in your life and finances. You implement your financial decisions. You appoint an accountability partner. You execute the Game Plan.


There is an ongoing review process where we re-create visions for the subsequent cycle from creation to manifestation.


Our Execution journey takes us from thoughts to beliefs.


No Goal Is Too Large


The Game Plan is a powerful personal development programme with unlimited potential. The outcome can be anything you wish, from a slight change in your life to delivering lasting change on a global scale.


The question to ask yourself is this, what is the full extent of your gifted potential? And, how far are you willing to go in pursuing your life purpose? Is it a little, or is it all the way? Remember, you do not have to follow your gifted potential, but nor are you free to abandon it.


No challenge is too great. You can if you so choose, contribute significantly to restoring the planet to balance and peace. For example, I used the Game Plan to contribute to saving the lives of five million children. I picked up an award for the best investment product in the world. The first client was the Pope.


How far can your gifted potential take you?


Currently, my focus is on fixing the global financial services industry. It may seem impossible, but as Nelson Mandela said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”


You too can achieve the impossible, by using the Game Plan. What is your impossible?
