Jimmy Farris
Farris Success Institute / Goal Mettle Academy

I am professional speaker and consultant. As a retired NFL veteran and Super Bowl Champion, I have spent my life setting and achieving goals. Through ups and downs, successes and failures, I have found that the key to excellence in everything I’ve done is mental toughness. I have been fortunate to be coached, mentored, and trained by some of the finest leaders across many industries. My life experiences have taught me that you’re either getting better or getting worse, but never staying the same. Applying the mental toughness secrets we teach at Mental Toughness University and Goal Mettle Academy is the key to continued growth in your personal and professional life. I am dedicated to serving others and passionate about assisting companies and individuals achieve success.

Goal Mettle Academy is the most effective and comprehensive goal-setting workshop ever conducted. We break down the science and psychology behind setting and achieving goals so that you can get more of the things you want in life and live your dreams.

Mental Toughness University is a comprehensive mental training process that moves sales and management teams from good to great. Mental Toughness trains people how to control their thoughts, feelings, and attitudes, before, during, and after a performance. Especially under pressure.

MTU is a process, not a program. It’s about training people how to THINK like world-class performers, and how to control and manipulate their own emotions for MAXIMUM performance. MTU is a cross between emotional intelligence training and critical thinking. It’s an introspective process that causes people to examine their thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and beliefs and how those directly impact their results. We call the process, ‘Facilitated Introspection’. The 6-hour program is an awakening to expose participants to the process and show them there’s a higher level of emotional competence and mental performance than they are experiencing.

When I was in the 5th grade, my teacher handed out a blank sheet of paper and asked us to draw a picture of where we saw ourselves in 15 years. There was no doubt my dream was to be a football player when I grew up. I was a huge New York Giants fan, so I drew a stick figure of myself in a Giants uniform and wrote “In 15 years I will be playing linebacker for the New York Giants.” I never asked myself if it was possible, realistic, attainable, reasonable, or any of the other silly and irrelevant questions we adults ask ourselves when setting a goal. I was just a kid allowing my imagination to run free and believing that if I wanted something, I could have it. I set that goal at age 10. And although I never played for the Giants, I played 6 years in the NFL, won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots, and lived out my childhood dream.

He was signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2001. Farris has also been a member of the New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Washington Redskins and Jacksonville Jaguars.

He has recently worked for Comcast Sports Southeast as a host and analyst on Sportsnite, as well as host his own NFL Fantasy Football web show called Sideline with Jimmy Farris.

In 2012 Farris was the Democratic candidate for the United States House of Representatives in Idaho’s 1st congressional district,
