My name is Neil Firszt. I am an author, life coach, blogger, and entrepreneur. I have studied many of the great thinkers, scientists, and influencers in areas of neuroplasticity, psychology, physical and spiritual health and healing, and emotional trauma.
My deep experience with the darkest side of many of the most infamous “crisis” addictions in alcoholism, nicotine, prescription meds, and more, combined with just the right amount of black out and near death experiences has been my greatest opening into helping others.
My mission is simple. I want to help people reach their full potential by understanding their limiting stories and learning to leave them behind. This leaves the space for creating new stories, goals, hopes, and dreams that align with who you are today, not who you once were . In doing so, you will begin to live again and realize how powerful you truly are.
This part of my journey began several years ago with a near death experience with my distraction of choice, alcohol.
After a series of random and questionable texts about my own death and I think some clowns, a concerned friend contacted the police to do a wellness check on me. They quickly realized I was in bad shape and shouldn’t be alone. At which time I was taken by ambulance to the hospital where I had more seizures from alcohol withdrawal. On my way out of the hospital, the doctor who treated me told me if I didn’t stop drinking immediately, I would only be making one final trip to the hospital. My body may not survive another alcohol detox.
I had heard this before, but this time it got me thinking and noticing, and then waking up to the reality this could kill me. The realization that things needed to change wasn’t a choice any more. I began to wake up to fact I was living out a story that was created out of fear and distraction. For so many years, I made the the story stronger. Stories like, I wasn’t wanted, or that I’m not worthy. And nonsense like, no one cares about me and I’m on my own. Soon after my experience, I began to realize my “story” was only as true as I would make it. I was buried under a false identity that I unconsciously created.
There’s way more going on in your head than there is in reality!Neil Firszt
