My name is Tommy Fierst and I am obsessed with Goal Setting. I even built an app for goal setting: GOAL SFS. My Grand Obsession is to help a hundred thousand people discover their goals and their Grand Obsession. May I help you?
Goal Setting sites abound by the hundreds. Life coaches by the thousands. Success tips by the millions. So why listen to what tommyfierst has to say? The proof is in the pudding. When I started my journey, over 30 years ago, I was a practicing alcoholic, in the midst of a divorce, homeless, earning on average 6,000.00 a year. I was an unlikely prospect for success. I grew up in a small town in Ohio. I loathed school and couldn't wait for my high school graduation because I knew I would never have to step inside a classroom again. To be fair, I did try a year of college, but alas, college was not for me. I instead moved to Minnesota and tied my sails to the bar and restaurant industry. A party every night was guaranteed as was as much booze as I could drink. I couldn't see past tommorow, and many a night I just couldn't see. You may now realize that wherever you are at in life, there is a good chance that you are starting a bit ahead of me. And this is one of the reasons you should hear what I have to say, I believe I have life experiences that are relateble to anyone. I have come to understand that I had to give up on some goals, but that I didn't have to give up on my dream. I have experienced adversity and learned, not how to overcome adversity, but how to work through adversity, and to look for the "equivalent benefit" as Napoleon Hill reminds us. I have been laughed at or minimized for following a dream that others felt I couldn't achieve. And please understqand, I don't believe in the old saying "if I can do it, you can do it'. I don't know your life and what you bring to the table. I do know goal setting and the importance of haveing a "Grand Obsession". I know that you do have choices in your life even when you think you have none. I know that belief is an ability and abilities are learned, and can be unlearned, and learned anew. And I know the importance of repetition when training your mind. And these are the skills that I want to bring to you, my success friends.
But there is another reason why you should listen to what tommyfierst has to say. We have been told for centuries about the power of our mind. Listen...
Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I shall have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
We Become what we think about.
What ever the mind of man can conceive and belive, he can achieve.
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.
-Provers 23:7 (KJV)
All things are possible to him who believes.
"You have power over your mind--not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength."
Whereever you go, go with all your heart
You are what you think. So just think big, believe big, act big, work big, give big, forgive big, laugh big, love big and live big.
There is a power under your control that is greater than poverty, greater than te lack of education, greater than oall your fears and superstitions combined. It is the power to take possession of your own mind and direct it to whatever ends you may desire.
Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible.....
All of these great thinkers and achievers knew there was something about goal setting, about believing, about controlling our thoughts. When I started learning about goal setting, science was starting to look also. And much like Einstiens theories, much of what couldn't be seen, was proven true. Neuro-science, psychology and biology have confirmed that we do have control over our thoughts. We can change our lives if we change our thoughts. And this is why you may want to listen to tommyfierst, since much of the information regarding scientific proof regarding goals setting is brought out in the open. Goal setting is not difficult nor mysterious, it is how our mind works. But know that it too is a skill and to become proficeint in goal setting you must practice. But first we need to understand what is happening and what is available to us. Success Friends, like me, you can take advantage of your brains. We can improve our lives and maybe, just maybe, we can achieve that which we choose to dream.
