BECOME WHO YOU WERE BORN TO BE!

BE BETTER TODAY THAN YOU WERE YESTERDAY!

Who Do You Want to Become?

Before you set goals...learn how to schedule success. Before you change jobs, careers, or make any life changing decisions...you must first learn the "Formula for Success."

There are five simple stepping stones for success we will discuss and go over in greater detail during this 8 week long live course:

  • Step 1: Believe in Yourself
  • Step 2: Create a Game Plan for Yourself! This is your roadmap.
  • Step 3: Invest in Yourself!
  • Step 4: Dedicate Yourself! (Dedication) - Pay the Price!
  • Step 5: Never Give Up on Yourself! - Perseverance (Reassess, Reevaluate, Reexamine, Repair, and Restore)

Success is different for everyone! True success, whether it be spiritual, intellectual, social or physical, means something entirely personal to everyone. Someone, let's say, who may be financially successful, but has been divorced multiple times and has a broken family, may feel extremely unsuccessful even though they have amassed a large financial fortune. They may view someone else who is happily married, but may be struggling financially, as a very successful individual and would even be willing to trade much, if not all of their financial success, to be successful in relationships as well. Many would give anything to have a good relationship with their spouse and children. The same can be said of someone who is trying to be healthy, lose weight, get an education, choose a major, get a job, or a career, of a lifestyle. These same stepping stones for success apply to any situation in life.

True success is striving to be the best version of ourselves and intentionally living the life we were born to live. It is doing what we say we will do and following our dreams, believing in ourselves and working on being better today than we were yesterday.  


In this course, you will learn the three simple steps of 1. Dreaming, 2. Planning and Preparing, and 3. GOING to WORK! This will help you get the results you hope for, and continually exceed even your own pre-conceived expectations. It's wonderful to continually outdo yourself and challenge yourself to progress, improve, and live the lifestyle you've always dreamed of living.

This is more than setting and achieving goals, which are great in the beginning, but often create more problems instead of allowing for real growth and change.

This course focuses on starting the journey of transforming your life and helping you become who you were born to be. This means we must focus on a complete lifestyle change. It is the process of transforming your thoughts, words, and actions from those of enslaving to empowering, from negativity and darkness, to positivity and light. It is the transition from, what I refer to as, "leaving behind the Apathetic Axiom, and ascending to the Motivation Matrix."

In this 8 Week Live Course for adults, I (Jerald Simon) teach the adult group virtually through ZOOM once a week for one hour every Monday evening from 6:00 P.M. - 7:00 P.M. for two months. There is also a teen group that is taught on Mondays during the day from 1:00 P.M. - 2:00 P.M. This course is taught on Mondays to help mentees start their week off on the right foot and follow a carefully created road map that allows students to schedule the steps they need to take to help them on their road to success. Each live training session is recorded so attendees can re-watch the video within the course portal at a later time, if they are unable to attend the live session.

I provide daily and weekly motivational messages, poetry, videos, and encouragement with practical steps to apply everything being taught. Course attendees learn how to create their own "Personal Dream Map," and how to implement "Macro and Micro Goals" as simple "Stepping Stones for Success." Everyone in the course will also be able to create their own "Personal Mission in Life Mission Statement," and will understand what it means to be "In the Habit of Forming Habits."

I include the following in the course (from my new book, "BEING AND BECOMING WHO YOU WERE BORN TO BE" - which everyone who joins the course will receive as a PDF book in April, 2024. You will also be able to pre-order the book and will receive an autographed copy of the book if you pre-order it):

Here is the outline for this 8 week life skills coaching program:

Week 1: DISCOVER WHO YOU ARE (GETTING TO KNOW YOURSELF) and learning who you can and will become. – Students write out an entire page describing who they are, including their beliefs, talents, interests, and who they would like to be. This is the discovery process where we have an honest conversation with ourselves about who have been, who we are, and who we would like to be and become. 

Week 2: WHAT IS MY PERSONAL MISSION IN LIFE? WHAT IS MY LIFE PLAN? Describe the “You” you want to Be! – Students discuss and find out what their own personal mission in life is and what they feel, at this moment, they would like to do to make a difference in their home, their community, and their life. Discovering or realizing what their personal mission in life is, helps them to have a better understanding of what they would like to do for a career, what lifestyle they would like to have, and what their purpose in life is and will be. It gives them a sense of direction, and an outline of what they personally feel they can do to contribute to life.

Week 3: Formula for success (1. Dream, 2. Plan and Prepare, 3. Go to work) – You learn about GOING FOR YOUR GOALS (students are taught what goals are, how to create their own Dream Map, and create Macro and Micro goals they will accomplish TODAY, this week, month, and year). The daily and weekly timelines (scheduling success) help you prioritize and place importance on which aspirations and goals you will focus on FIRST.  

Week 4: Positively Positive Thinking Power (why thinking positively is so powerful!) – Students learn about how their thoughts and words affect them and those around them. Students create a “SELF TALK” Statement of Positivity for themselves that they can read each day for one month to remind them how wonderful they are.

Week 5: Learning: 1. Skills, 2. Principles, and 3. Values by developing: 1. Good Habits, 2. Self Discipline, 3. A Moral Compass. After accomplishing our Formula for Success (1. Dream, 2 Plan and Prepare, and 3 Go to Work!), we must then increase our ability by developing skills, following correct principles, and determining which values we will implement into our lives on a daily basis. By developing skills, following correct principles, and deciding which values we will live by each day, we must learn good habits, self discipline, and maintain our own guiding moral compass. This will not only give us direction, focus, and clarity, it will help us envision who we were born to be. We will become that individual because we already are successful, we just need to give ourselves permission to see ourselves in a brighter light of hope, peace, and positivity.

Week 6: The Power of Knowledge - Reading for life! Students receive a list of 100 books I believe everyone should read. Students also receive an additional list of 100+ books to read that have been compiled by others. The students are encouraged to create their own list as well and set their own reading goals. One goal we establish is that they will read at least one book per week for the rest of their lives. If they can read more than one book, all the better, but we emphasize reading at least one book per week - every week. We talk about the importance of scheduling reading time and how to make time for our own personal development, improvement, and overall success in life.

Week 7: Identifying Personal Strengths and Weaknesses (how to make your strengths stronger and turn your weaknesses into strengths). This is the time to break free from your weaknesses. Our weaknesses are essentially gifts and opportunities for growth and change. Our failures are some of the greatest stepping stones toward success we could ever be given in life. We must learn how to befriend failure and see our missteps, mistakes, and misguided mayhem in life as a personal asset and strength. Our weakness becomes our strength and we continually become stronger (spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially). We can learn to assess and re-assess what is and is not working in our lives. We all fall short of the person we want to be. We always will. We all feel, at times, as if we don’t measure up — and we all have moments where we honestly don’t. We are better than that, and can turn our weaknesses into great strengths!

Week 8: Learning and Living by VIRTUES (students discuss which virtues they personally would like to live by and set goals about focusing on daily virtues throughout the year). A list of virtues is provided and students can select which virtues they would like to work on each day, during the week, each month, and throughout the year. This focus on “Living by Virtues” will change the way we see the world and how we act, what we think, how we speak, and what we choose to do each day. As we continue to focus on virtues day by day, we will see our lives changing because we are changing. This will empower us to be the best version of ourselves, and as we are empowered, we will be able to empower others with peace and positivity.

In the next 8 weeks, we will go over lessons to learn, how to begin dream mapping your way toward accomplishing your goals, discovering who you are and who you can become, and much more. I'm excited for everyone to start their steps toward success!

I Want to Do What Jesus Taught by Jerald Simon
$6.95
This PDF book features 40 original primary songs composed for children to teach them religious principles and values centered on Jesus Christ and our relationship with our Heavenly Father.

The themes I have tried to focus on in this PDF book primarily highlight and feature Jesus Christ and His teachings. Of course, as Jesus said in the Holy Bible, He only did what His Father in Heaven wanted. He went about doing good. He always did the Father’s will.

Jesus is, without reservation, the most important exemplary role model we can follow. If we will pattern our own lives after His, and if we will try to learn His teachings and follow His perfect example, we will be strengthened and helped from on high. We are not perfect, nor will we ever be perfect here in mortality, but we have a perfect example and guide to help us on our way. I know as we learn about Jesus and try to become more Christ-like in how we speak, what we watch, do, listen to, and how we treat others, that we can have His influence watching over us and guiding us in everything we do. It will change the way we see the world around us. It will change how we behave and what we do and even who we become. It will have an everlasting impact on how we speak, what we watch for entertainment, the friends we choose to hang out with and what we do with those friends when we are with them.
