Don't Forget Your Own Personal & Professional Development

by Tom Ingrassia & Jared Chrudimsky

Are you prepared to turn life’s obstacles into opportunities—and make them your own? Will this be the year when everything falls into place for you, just the way you envisioned it?

If you are like many of us, you spend countless hours encouraging others to develop the skills to clarify, set and achieve their life goals.

But what about YOU? How often do you take the time to focus on YOUR dreams, aspirations and goals? The best way to make certain that you are satisfied and productive is to check in with yourself to discover what you are most passionate about.

Some people have no trouble with this process, but many need someone to hold them accountable for planning their future. Recognizing this need—and seizing the opportunity that was right in front of us—we developed an innovative program that combines guided visioning and re-energizing massage in a transformational workshop. Mental Massage™ is the signature program in MotivAct’s portfolio of holistic personal development seminars.

And we practice what we preach. We are living, breathing proof that dreams do come true. We’re not superheroes. We don’t possess superhuman powers. We’re just a couple of ordinary guys. But what we have achieved—individually and as a team—demonstrates that even the most ordinary people CAN achieve extraordinary things—if we have courage to change, seize opportunities that are right in front of us every day, and persevere until we reach our dream, no matter the challenges.

When we met three years ago, there was an instinctive connection—although we didn’t know why fate had brought us together. We became friends and colleagues. And, perhaps most important, we became running buddies. Jared had been running most of his life. At age 57, I had never run a mile in my life. But Jared coached me, helping me find my "inner runner."

It was during an early morning run that the concept for Mental Massage was born. Jared suggested we combine my guided visioning with his massage for a program for a networking group. It worked beyond our wildest expectations. Within weeks, we had developed a full Mental Massage workshop, took it "on the road," and we have not looked back! Our clients include caregiver support groups, cancer survivor support groups, yoga studios, financial services companies, nonprofit boards, job seekers groups and educational institutions.

Our holistic approach to personal and professional development guides clients from all walks of life to overcome stubborn obstacles as they pursue their life goals. With Mental Massage, we guide people in a systematic process of developing the "roadmap" to get from where they are to where they want to be. We may think that focusing on ourselves is selfish, putting our own dreams on hold in order to help someone else. But if we don’t nourish our own souls, we cannot help anyone else. Think of it this way—when you are on an airplane and the flight attendant is doing the safety drill, what are you told to do when the oxygen mask drops down? Put it on yourself first. You need that life energy first. Then you can help the next person.

That’s our philosophy. We share a passion for helping our clients achieve more healthy, fulfilling lives. By joining forces, we are living our own dreams as we help forward-looking clients with an uncommon service, one in which Tom guides participants to live with vision, courage, determination and passion; and Jared’s massage helps them achieve harmonious balance between mind, body and soul.

That’s why the Universe brought us together!
