The Goalcast story

When co-founders Cyrus Gorjipour and Salim Sader created Goalcast in 2016, they were both disillusioned by the traditional academic system. 

Cyrus had suffered through years of low self-esteem and depression before discovering a psychological concept called the internal locus of control, the belief that you are responsible for your own success. The powerful mindset reframe helped him turn his life around, and made him wonder why this sort of principle was not taught in schools.

Meanwhile, Salim was a physics teacher, and he couldn’t bear the thought of putting students into a box and limiting the extent of their potential to exams and grades. He and Cyrus came together to give others the tools to succeed in the school of life.

Today, Goalcast is one of the fastest-growing personal development brands in the world. 

The Goalcast ecosystem 

Our team has been called to adventure. The challenge we face is bigger than we can imagine, as is our potential. We are being asked to live the impossible.

We challenge ourselves to see different, to do different, to go deeper, to lean into our fears and act with purpose. In speaking our truths and leaning into the discomfort of growth, we attract the ecosystem of people ready to do the same. 

“What does an organization that is free of fear look like? One that believes that life is abundant. One that believes that life is not a zero-sum game.  One that believes that the goal of a business should not be to ‘crush the competition’, but to grow the pie together. One that understands that we don’t need to fight all the time. That we don’t need to live in scarcity. We don’t need to live in fear of going out of business or losing our jobs all the time. Because if those things happen, we trust that we can deal with them. And that mistakes are part of life and are opportunities to learn and grow.”  – Cyrus Gorjipour, CEO of Goalcast
