The Bright Future Program is specifically designed to assist participants in regaining self-esteem, self-worth and self-reliance, as well as providing the tools to establish a Bright Future.
The course begins by helping participants identify their illness, and then takes them through the Six Pillars of Mental Wellness to help create a solid foundation for a happy and successful life:
- Spirituality – believing in a higher power, seeking and accepting spiritual help, and developing the belief that God is for us not against us. The goal is to recognize that there is a plan for each individual life, and that knowing and realizing that plan, a Bright Future is in store.
- Relationships – learning the importance of creating, developing and nurturing positive relationships with caregivers, family and friends. The goal is to bring the best out in people in all of our relationships.
- Family – learning that having a family is not limited to blood relatives, but can encompass anyone who accepts you for who you are. The goal is to create a sense of belonging.
- Physical / Mental Health – learning that fitness, nutrition, and personal care are essential to physical and mental wellness. The goal is to provide the knowledge base for living as healthy a life as we can for as long as possible.
- Career / Vocation – helping to understand that choosing a career or vocation that meets your individual needs is very rewarding. The goal is to bring out the passion for the things you love to do. Whether it is paid or volunteering.
- Finances – learning how to take responsibility for your own finances and the freedom and joy it can bring. True financial success is not measured by dollars in a bank account; rather it is having the ability to do what you want, when you want, with whom you want. The goal in finances is to get out of debt and build wealth.
This program is designed in 7 modules and comes with a downloadable workbook to help you learn and track your progress. It is intended to take place over a 7-week span, though you are free to go at your own pace. Each module consists of an in-depth video from Bill MacPhee, and may include materials and interviews from other experts. You will also be given access to a special “Bright Future Members Only” community where you will be able to get your questions answered to further enhance your learning. Bill MacPhee himself will periodically drop in on this community, offering his personal advice and expertise!
Each pillar is designed to build on the one that precedes it, together providing the basis for a Bright Future.
