Getting Unstuck

You know it when you feel it. That feeling of being stuck, with every day feeling like you are on a treadmill, getting nowhere.  What can you do? If you want to get off that treadmill and move in a positive direction you need to do four things:

  1. Re-script your life
  2. Make a big wish
  3. Define your major goals
  4. Change your thinking and beliefs.

In order to re-script your life you need to engage in a little bit of fantasy. The tool to re-write your life’s script is the Future Letter. Take out a piece of paper and in 300 to 500 words paint a picture, with those words, of the ideal life you desire. Spare no details. Let your imagination soar. Create on paper the life you want to have five to ten years down the road. It’s fun and it will engage your subconscious.

With your life’s new script in hand, identify the one major wish that will help you pave the road to your new future. This wish needs to be big and seemingly impossible.

Re-writing your life’s script and identifying your big wish will help you define the major goals that will enable you to focus your efforts and bring clarity of purpose to your life. The tool to achieving your goals is the Daily Five strategy. Each day do five small things to help you move forward toward achieving your goals. These five things should require no more than an hour of your time each day.

Your script, wish and goals will force you to the final step: changing your thinking. This step requires a shift from negative thinking to positive thinking. You need to make optimism, gratitude and happiness a daily habit. It also requires that you confront those limiting beliefs that have been holding you back in life. The tools that will get you there are daily affirmations and visualization. Daily affirmations are lies you tell yourself every day. They need to be in the present tense and represent a future state – the achievement of your goals and realization of your major wish and ideal life. The brain will do anything you tell it to do if you tell it often enough with emotion. False affirmations agitate the brain, which then goes to work to help you achieve the goals that will make your big wish come true and help you realize your ideal life. The brain thinks in pictures. Visualization is, therefore, the language of the brain. Coupled with false affirmation programming, it will cause a shift in your behavior. Your intuition will begin working for you, whispering in your ears to do certain things and take certain action.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit,, India TV, Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money,,, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider,, and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
