"Control your own destiny or someone else will"
Tom knows a thing or two about success.
What he knows helps some people become fantastically successful.
Not only financially, but in every way imaginable.
For more than a decade, Tom has earned a peerless reputation as a top trainer, motivator and personal coach for professionals in the real estate and financial services industries. Tom has conducted trainings for more than 130,000 sales people nationwide, and has personally coached 16 of the top 100 agents in all of North America.
While many of his clients earn more than $1 million per year, Tom’s clients’ growth is not measured by increased income alone. He believes in being committed to helping people work less, eliminate stress, and have more fun, ease, passion and joy in their businesses and lives.
And Tom Ferry credits much of his success in coaching others to being intimately familiar with "The Five Questions".
These are the types of questions that only the rare few will have the courage to answer in an honest, authentic way. Questions like these, that probe the deeper issues of Life Purpose and what we truly Value most will make make wince with discomfort.
But, imagine for a moment, that you did take time this week to absorb Tom's questions.
And answer them.
Where could those questions take you?
Maybe it depends on whether you choose to live by design or default.
