Who Do You Want to Be?

Who do you want to be? Have you ever given it any thought?

Sure, we have ideas about what we want to do with our lives. This usually focuses on careers or starting a family so we can become a mom or dad.

At some point, usually around age 45, we begin to wonder if this is all we are in life – our career and a mom or dad. Up to this point we’ve been running like hamsters on a wheel. Working hard at our jobs and raising a family.

But as that family grows up, that wheel starts to slow down, and we suddenly have more time to think about our lives. This “mid-life crisis” event forces us to stop and think about the meaning behind it all. And the inevitable question arises – is this all I am?

Most take a non-productive path and bury themselves in things that occupy their time – new hobbies (golf, boating, crafts, fantasy football, etc.) and/or new addictions (drugs/alcohol/women).

These time-consuming hobbies and the addictions make us feel better while we’re engaged in the activities because they throw a blanket over the real issue and divert our attention. But they only serve to temporarily mask the pain we feel when we are alone with our thoughts.

A few, however, during this mid-life crisis, take the constructive path and begin to formulate a plan to become something more than a job-holder and parent. They pursue dreams and goals that will help them become something more significant in life. They strive for greatness.

We all have the capacity for greatness. But we need a plan to achieve that greatness. I call that plan Dreamsetting.

Dreamsetting will give you the answer to the question who do I want to be. Dreamsetting puts you on the right path in life. It will open your eyes and help you become the person you were intended to be.

I created a short eBook on Dreamsetting. If you’d like a copy, shoot me an email.

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, Money.com, India TV, News.com 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, SUCCESS.com, Inc.com, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider, Credit.com, Bankrate.com 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.
