Do you feel stuck?
If so, you’re in the right place. And, remember that “stuck” can look a thousand different ways to a thousand different people. It can mean you’re dealing with an addiction and you’ve tried everything else to beat it. Or you’re struggling with anxiety or depression, and though you get brief breaks from it, you’re tired of it ruling your life. Or you’re dealing with any of a variety of other issues like wanting to lose weight, stop procrastinating or simply setting goals. Most important, you’re in the right place if you’re sick and tired of feeling like you’re on a merry-go-round, trying to find relief in every self-help aisle, while wanting nothing more than to begin living a life filled with more courage, joy and purpose.
A Little About Me…
My name is Neil Firszt. Several years ago, I was near death. Literally. How did I get there? By avoiding reality, using my distraction of choice – alcohol. On my way out of the hospital, where I’d been taken by ambulance after having another round of seizures, the doctor told me that, if I didn’t stop drinking immediately, I’d only be making one final trip to the hospital.
Which got me thinking. And noticing. And then waking up.
Waking up to the fact that I was simply living out a story I had been telling myself since I was a child. That I wasn’t wanted. That I wasn’t worth much. And that, really, no one cared. But, soon after that experience, I began to realize that my “story” wasn’t true, and that I was buried under an identity I created unconsciously. And I began a long journey to find that truth. During that journey, I also realized how badly I wanted to share what I learned with as many people as possible. So that others, in a similar state, would have hope, and a path to follow up and out of the darkness.
And that’s how we ended up here.
A few words of wisdom from Jacob…
- Spend more time in nature
- Don’t be so hard on yourself and others
- Mistakes happen and it’s cool
- It feels great to be nice to people
- Your thoughts are just thoughts… they’re not going to get you
I’m an author, life coach, blogger, podcaster, entrepreneur, and workshop presenter. I’ve studied many of the great thinkers and influencers in the areas of neuroplasticity, psychology, physical health, spiritual healing and emotional trauma. My mission is to help people realize that, when they leave their stories behind and start living again, they’ll finally come to understand just how powerful they are.
What you’ll find here
On this site, you’re going to find a number of resources, most are free and some that cost money. Hopefully one or all of them will help you on your journey.
My main goal is to help raise consciousness helping us understand how our stories arise from our perception of the environment we grew up in, and what we were taught to believe. I’ll help you identify your stories by focusing on the present moment, and begin to transform them, through thought-provoking questions and sharing the lessons I’ve learned on my own path. You’ll also see how you’re simply a character in other people’s stories, too, as we all walk around with our stories bumping up against each other.
Because remember… I’ve been there too! And have struggled with the same bullshit machine thoughts, the same questions, and the same doubts, fear, blame, self-hate, and confusion.
My overall goal is that we can all become more aware of how our past stories have created our current realities, and how changing our stories through new actions and beliefs can create the realities that align with you most!
