Tom's Story

IT IS NEVER TOO LATE FOR A NEW BEGINNING. WE ARE ALWAYS RIGHT ON TIME! IT'S TIME TO REVEAL THE UNDISCOVERED YOU!

Interview with K.C. Armstrong of "World's Most Amazing People"
This is Who This is Who

Tom Froehlich • Speaker • Author • Transformational Thought Coach

        I have been a graphic designer, writer, owned and operated a pottery studio, bartended, traveled the world buying beautiful things with someone else’s money, taught math through art to kindergarten students and worked in drug & alcohol recovery.  One summer during college, I worked seven days a week, twelve hours a day, as the “Brinemaster” in an industrial pea canning factory. You know, for prisons and institutions? Nothing glamorous like Birdseye or Green Giant. But, that’s another story.

        I believe, I truly believe, we know who we are meant to be the moment we are born.  The hitch in that giddy-up is that this was also the moment the rest of the world—our family, society, our friends—started telling us who we are supposed to be.

        I knew I was different when I was five years old and enamored with the eldest son in the movie The Swiss Family Robinson. By the time I was twelve I knew what that “different” thing was. I remember praying that one day it would make some sort of sense. Otherwise it was just some sort of cruel joke or random unfortunate circumstance. It may have been the 60’s but the sex, drugs and rock and roll attitude had yet and most likely never would taint or enlighten the conservative midwestern town of 20,000 people I grew up in.

        I spent years trying to be the person I was “supposed to be,” by my parents, society and most of all myself. Fear of my being who I am lead me to alcohol as the only way to cope with the feelings I had forced down inside of me. The fear and the anger and the hurt. The feeling that I was somehow inherently flawed. The certainty that I would always come in second best. Finally there wasn’t enough tequila north of the border to drown my pain, but trust me I tried.

        Finally, my life became so bleak that I knew I had a problem. I was spiraling down into a dark pit of hopelessness, isolation, and fear. For the first time in my life I truly understood the meaning of the word "despair."

         It’s no surprise that I found myself in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous. Through AA, a determined soul searching and a brutally honest assessment of who I was,

but even more importantly who I wanted to become, I

climbed out of that dark and terrifying place.

       It was in those rooms I heard a woman, sober several years and quite successful say,“I didn’t quit drinking to have mediocre life. I quit drinking to have a miraculous one,” and I knew that I wanted that.

       I learned that if we are ever going to have any chance of

moving forward, of creating a miraculous life and becoming

the person we were meant to be, we need to learn to forgive.

We need to forgive those who held us up to the unrealistic,

unwanted and at times even impossible expectations of

“supposed to be.” It is by forgiving them for those

expectations, that we are finally able to forgive

 ourselves for not measuring up to them. And it is

by forgiving ourselves that we set ourselves free

to become the me we were meant to be.

        So, trust me when I say that I am aware that

things don’t always go as planned. I get it. We can’t change

the hand life dealt us, however, we do get to make choices

 that will determine how that hand is played out. No

matter what our sexuality or race or religion we all

deserve to realize our dreams. We all deserve to

 become the person we were meant to be.

      I don’t have the answers to all of life’s questions, but

one thing I do know for sure—endings last as long as

we choose and beginnings begin as soon as we are

willing to start.

        Together let’s find the courage to embrace

our true selves and share that self with the

world as we fearlessly, happily and proudly say,

“This is who I am!”

      Shall we begin?

ENDINGS LAST AS LONG AS WE CHOOSE—
BEGINNINGS BEGIN AS SOON AS WE ARE WILLING TO START. 


Let's Get Naked! Reveal the Undiscovered You

         What inspired me to write this book? I was tired of looking at time-consuming and verbose books on

how to change my life. We're all busy and frankly, don't have loads of "free" time and I think our attention

spans are a bit short these days. I wanted to offer a book and a system that is inspiring, entertaining

and efficient. I think I delivered. I trust you 'll agree. This book includes 70 pages of narrative that

are both entertaining and inspiring and worksheets to walk you through the process I developed.

It's fast! It's simple! It works!!

         I believe, I truly believe, we know who we are meant to be the moment we are born.

The hitch in that giddy-up is that this was also the moment the rest of the world—

our family, society, our friends—started telling us who we are supposed to be.

          We are all as unique and amazing as our own thumbprint.  No one.  Absolutely no one is

better at being you than you.  So be it! We are meant to shine.  To do something that brings us

happiness and joy and allows us to spread that joy to the rest of the world.  Our journey is to

become the best “me” we can possibly be. Really, it is.

          How many of you have a goal—a dream that you have always felt was your destiny, but it’s just

not happening? You feel as if maybe it's someone else's dream or maybe you think you just don't have what

it takes. Yet still, whenever you think about the possibilities, you get jacked up — you get a kind of buzz?

Open your mind to the possibilities life offers, get rid of your "supposed to be"s, reveal the undiscovered you

and make that dream your reality.

         Go ahead. Get naked! I think you'll be pleased with what you find.

I am A Very Spiritual Yet Vulgar Man

     An opus of inspiration, I am A Very Spiritual Yet Vulgar Man, for those of us who embrace a  Zen philosophy, yet at times are more than capable of spewing out expletives like a drunken sailor, as we kick and scream our way through life. We all attempt to do everything humanly possible to be vessels of love, but everyone has days when crazy comes to call. In the blink of an eye, we can morph into a psychotic, vindictive, asshole who has absolutely no desire to throw on a saffron colored robe and channel the DalaiLama.

      The first of these quotes was conceived during a particularly challenging time in my life, doing my best to hang onto the thinly frayed thread that tied me to what was left of my sanity. It just sort of popped into my brain. Some may even say I channeled it. “Sometimes when life throws you lemons you just need to throw them back screaming, ‘Nope, not this time bitch!’” Evidently at that moment in time I felt the world was against me, and I just wasn’t having it.

      Thus began my practice of writing daily quotes. The language seemed to range from that of a choirboy to one of a merchant seaman. I used no filter. Some may even argue that I never had one. I tried to edit, compartmentalize, and delete quotes that didn’t seem to fit or were perhaps a bit too “salty”. Then, I realized the quotes came from every facet of my personality — everything that I am, and I said right out loud,  “Well, I guess I am just a very spiritual yet vulgar man,” and thus this book was born.  We are all a big, amazing, wonderful mix of everything the Universe has to offer, running the gamut from prostitute to poet, and I’m done making f@#$ing apologies.

How about you?

      Let’s rock this shit!

IT IS NEVER TOO LATE FOR A NEW BEGINNING. WE ALWAYS ARRIVE RIGHT ON TIME!

  Tom has been described as, “A breath of fresh air in a world where we can have difficulty catching our breath in the midst of self-doubt.”

     With an engaging personality and an acerbic wit, Tom has developed a presence on the Los Angeles comedy circuit performing at the well known, World Famous Comedy Store, Hollywood Improv, and Flappers Comedy Club. He honed his speaking skills as an officer of Toastmasters International, where he delivered more than one hundred speeches and has been awarded sixty first-place ribbons. His first professional speaking engagement was at Symantec Corporation that staffs 11,000 employees nationwide.

       Tom’s passion energizes and inspires audiences to take transformative control of their lives, and to become visionaries of their own future. He has made his mark as an enthusiastic, authentic, humorous and compassionate speaker and author. He inspires audiences to take actionable steps to turn their “someday dreams” into reality.

       Chasing one of his own “someday dreams,” very possibly during a mid-life crisis, Tom decided to spread his wings and move from his hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Los Angeles. Well aware of the cliché, he bought a convertible and drove west until he hit the ocean, and landed in Venice Beach.

       With enthusiasm, humor and compassion, Tom inspires others to face their demons, identify their dreams, set goals and live miraculous lives.

Take a ride on a journey of self-self-discovery and never look back—ever.

• Accept, embrace & celebrate everything that you are.

• Overcome hurdles holding you back

• Learn to see past facades and embrace your

genuine self.

• Create a road map to becoming a more genuine you.

• Take a personal inventory and begin to realize your unlimited potential.

• Explore how powerful and life changing our minds can be.

• Identify obstacles of your own creation and eliminate them.

• Learn to see all of life as an opportunity.

• Learn to discover your gifts and talents

• Explore how powerful and life changing our minds can be.

Tom’s message of self-empowerment and self-discovery resonate with a wide variety of audiences. He is happy to consider events across the country for your high school, college, church, corporate, or other event.

 

     Life is a journey of self-discovery and we need to do our best to see the beauty in ourselves and everything and everyone around us. We need to learn to celebrate everything that we are. Hold nothing back. Give everything we can to become the best ‘me’ we can be. We need to learn to love ourselves enough to be courageous enough to stand out in a crowd and not shrink  back.  To love ourselves so much that the love overflows into the lives of others and changes them and helps them become the best ‘me’ that they can be.

     Be the love and the joy and the magic that you are looking for in life. And I want you to believe that you can. Whatever it is. You can. In fact, you must. Because whether you know it or not, the rest of the world is out there waiting for you to be the best me that you can be.  This world needs brave people who are true and honest and authentic.

     Step out of the shadows and into your own power and you will shine, holding a confident, contented knowing as you step up to your life and we say to the world, as you speak the words, the simple words that hold neither pride nor fear nor shame, the simple words, “This is who I am.”

“If we are busy listening to the rest of the world tell us what we are suppose to do and who we are suppose to be, we miss out on the Universe telling each and every one of us just how incredibly amazing we already are.”

TAKE A RIDE WITH TOM ON A JOURNEY OF SELF-DISCOVERY & NEVER LOOK BACK. EVER!

"Working with Tom was a comfortable, fun and enlightening way for me to get clear on goals and obstacles I've created that get in the way. His straightforward tactics, blended with kindness, and just the right dosage of "new agey-ness" was what I needed to create a game plan for myself with built in motivational stop measures.

Thanks Tom!"

     Are you the kind of person who likes to communicate through the spoken word?
I know I am. If you are as well, I offer one-on-one coaching sessions to assist you in identifying and pushing past obstacles and setting a life path to help your dreams become a reality. I am a certified IFTT Transformational Thought Coach and incorporate the IFTT techniques with my own to assist you in revealing the undiscovered you.
     If you are unfamiliar with the transformational thinking process, no need to stress. We can have an initial conversation at no charge and determine what you would like to accomplish and if I’m the coach that can help you achieve those goals. All of my coaching sessions are relaxed and conversational. In some instances there is homework assigned to help us maximize our time together and get you moving forward.  And sometimes it’s about thinking out loud and having someone to bounce your thoughts and ideas off of. Maybe you just want someone to help you work through the manual, “Let's Get Naked! Reveal the Undiscovered You”. I find nothing more fulfilling than helping others create lives that are maybe more than just a little bit miraculous. Together, we can make that happen. Contact me at tom@tomspeakz.com or give me a call.
When opportunity knocks, don’t just answer the door. 
Walk through it like you own that shit!
I once tried to follow a map I drew for my life, and then I realized a cartographer I am not — an adventurer perhaps — a dreamer no doubt. This is a good thing, as I realize the Universe has chosen an uncharted course for me.  I do my best to watch for the guideposts it sets along the way. My sails are set & the wind is full.
