Interview with K.C. Armstrong of "World's Most Amazing People"
NAKED! Let's Get REVEAL THE UNDISCOVERED YOU

Tom's Story

       I have been a graphic designer, writer, owned and operated a pottery studio, tended bar, 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.       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,  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 that we are finally

able to forgive ourselves for not measuring

up to those expectations. And it is by

forgiving ourselves that we set ourselves

free. 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.

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.        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?

Let's Get Naked! 
Reveal the Undiscovered You

"Remember that endings last as long as we choose &

beginnings begin as soon as we are willing to start. "

      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 use our finest gifts.  Our talents.  To chase our dreams.  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!

Thought Coach

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~Namaste.

"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.
