Jim George, Pumped up Cartoon Animator, Launches The Goal Mine to Solve Energy Crisis

July 09, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Jim George leaves the animation industry to launch The Goal Mine, a personal development firm that uses sound to help people increase their energy and focus.

The founder of The Goal Mine has a body that looks like that of a weightlifter half his age. His eyes reveal the calm focus of a Buddhist monk, and he can draw so well that he spent years drawing animation at Disney. And for less than one dollar, Jim George will show others what it feels like to tap into his well of unlimited energy.

"Relax" is The Goal Mine's first offering and it just came out on Amazon's MP3 music downloads store. It's a 37-minute audio tool that Jim says will enable people to experience more energy than they have in years.

Having left the animation industry to become founder of The Goal Mine, a personal development company, Jim believes that we are surrounded by energy, and that to tap into it a person simply has to clear their mind and relax their body. "It's simple," Jim explains, "But not easy to do on your own." Fortunately, his new Relax audio does most of the work for a listener, guiding him or her into deep relaxation through a combination of Jim's words along with precisely orchestrated music and sounds.

For over twenty years, he has taken time every day to clear his mind and relax his body. This allows him to engage in daily gym workouts of such intensity and duration that his regime has become legend near his home in Venice, California. And that's saying a lot for Venice, where hundreds of regulars sculpt their bodies to jaw-dropping proportions.

During much of this time, Jim worked as an animator and director in the entertainment industry. In addition to a longstanding stint at Disney, he maintained a studio of his own and worked with the likes of Norman Lear. Five years ago, he decided to turn his other passion into his profession: helping people control their frame of mind. Jim became a certified hypnotherapist, and now maintains a thriving practice.

"Constant deep, positive and personal reinforcement is a vital component to anyone's success," explains Jim. "When people encounter the obstacle of discomfort in the kind of "working out" that actually creates long-term improvement in health and fitness — the pain barrier as it is often referred to — it can be the end to any physical fitness regime that a typical person can fit into their schedule. But if you learn to calm and focus your mind, you no longer even notice such barriers."

Despite its deceptively simple title, the new Relax audio is designed to allow anyone to reach a state of complete relaxation and to then practice reaching that state so that letting go of fears and doubts becomes second nature. In such a state, individuals are able to imagine easily the body that they want, the type of relationship they crave, and where and how they wish to live. Jim's clients routinely emerge from such states with a sparkle in their eyes and fire in their bellies, largely from the joy that comes from vividly experiencing the life of their dreams in a relaxation session.

The audio is available online for $.99 at Amazon.com via this link:

The Amazon offering amounts to a nearly free preview of the first in a set of five audios Jim created through his company, The Goal Mine. The set is called "What Do You Want?" and it is described in detail on the firm's web site.

Together, the audios enable anyone to focus incredible amounts of energy on getting what they want from life.

Jim describes the problem his new audio series solves. "As we try to imagine what we want, there can be a sort of fog hovering around us. We are so used to not getting what we want that we no longer can even articulate our desires. So we edit what we say and even think. But this sort of pre-editing is actually a powerful method of practicing not getting what we want. We become our own worst enemy.

"These audios help people practice remembering and picturing what they really do want. The brain doesn't know the difference between an event and a vividly recalled event. The neurology lights up in exactly the same way. And the more vividly recalled the event, that is, the more sensory representation occurs in the recollection, the less the brain distinguishes between the actual event and the recollection of that event. The more you practice getting what you want, the more likely it is to come true."
