I started learning about motivational speakers many years ago after I got out of high school and wanted to make my way in the world.  I started listening to a lot of public speakers.

I joined many Multi-Level Marketing companies, the first being Amway. I went to all of the seminars put on the the big producers.  I bought and listened to all of the cassette tapes (yes, it was that long ago). I listened to those motivational tapes and they achieved their goal, to get me excited and to dream.  That was the big thing back then. Dream Big!

I was a big dreamer.  I wanted to have the Cadillac, I wanted to have the big home, I wanted to drive around in a motorhome and be a motivational speaker.  I really wanted to be a success.

Dream Big! Follow Your Dreams

Whatever The Mind Can Conceive, It Can Achieve.

As I got older and continued to go to more and more motivational seminars I kept dreaming but I was never achieving.  All of the motivational teachings were about thinking positive, having big dreams and staying motivated.  I would leave the seminars pumped up and excited, often to the level of tears, I was so excited.

What I also learned was that motivational speakers never taught me HOW to achieve my dreams. They never taught me how to set goals, or how to achieve my goals.

I never achieved any of my dreams.  Do you know anyone like this?

I started in the martial arts and started learning more about meditation trying to do things that I previously thought I couldn’t.  I decided to take a class in hypnosis to learn more about the brain and what it could do.  I went to the Hypnosis Motivation Institute near my home in Norcross, GA.

I took the first class in Hypnosis and learned how our subconscious minds work. I learned how and why people could be hypnotized.  I learned to hypnotize other people, and how to use self-hypnosis.  I was fascinated to learn that our subconscious mind can store positive and negative thoughts and beliefs from the time we were born.  These thoughts and belief systems would influence what we did and how we responded to goals and thoughts of success.

I continued in my training through all of the curriculum to become a certified hypnotherapist.  I then enrolled and became an intern at HMI and started working with and treating patients for various things like smoking cessation, weight loss therapies, etc.

I took one course from the founder of HMI, Dr. John Kappas that changed my life. I started following the teachings in this course and it has propelled me to successful goal achievements that I never was able to do before.

At the time I completed the course I was working dead-end jobs, making barely minimum wage.  But not much was expected of me from my family or others.  It isn’t easy to be successful with just a high school education.   After applying the things I learned, I started setting goals and achieving them.  I started making more money.  I was becoming successful.

I decided I would write down all of the things I had learned that had allowed me to achieve my goals and improve my life.  I created the Goal Getting, Don’t Just Set’em, Get’em program and started to teach it to real estate sales people, mortgage bankers, community leaders, etc.

Last year I was reminded about Podcasting; something I had done in 2004 – 2005.  When I realized that I could now reach millions of people and help them to learn how to Get the Goals They Set, I had to start this podcast.  So, here we are.  I made a goal to launch this podcast, and if you are listening, I achieved my latest goal.
