Whenever I have a discussion with someone about pursuing their passion or creating a happier life, they inevitably ask me, “So where did you learn all this stuff?”
The long answer is I have devoured, read, and listened to dozens of books, podcasts, audios, videos, and blogs. The short answer is Michael Neill.
Let me back up. My real first steps into the world of personal development began when I watched—quite by accident—Wayne Dyer speak in his PBS special The Power of Intention. From there I discovered Hay House and Hay House Radio, the broadcasters of Michael Neill’s weekly radio call-in show Supercoach.
Honestly, I first listened to Supercoach because it sounded the least “New Agey” of the group. I had heard of Cheryl Richardson, also on Hay House Radio, before, but mostly through her association with Oprah Winfrey.
After listening to Michael’s show, I was hooked. It was as if someone had thrown back the blackout curtains and let the sunlight pour in. Mind you, it’s not like I was spiritually in the dark or anything. Quite the opposite. But Michael’s insights, particularly from a career viewpoint, started to open up my mind to a new possibilities and new ways of looking at the world.
Soon after, I purchased his 6-CD set Effortless Success in the summer of 2008. My first ever self-help purchase—and still my favorite.
I listened to it in my car over and over and over for about 6 months straight. Literally. No music, no talk shows. Just his program. I wanted to cement the concepts into my mind so solidly that they would never leave.
What I love about this program is Michael’s natural conversational tone. It really feels like you’re talking with someone, not being lectured to. He mixes humor, stories, and practical advice in a way that is easy to digest and implement into your life.
I could on and on, but honestly the only way to truly see how life-changing this program can be is to listen to it. Or check out his radio show and website. You won’t be disappointed.
