89: Last Bad Day


How can a severe accident, a near death experience, become a person’s greatest gift? You will discover the inspiring answer to that question in this podcast.

Michael OBrien was living a successful life – on the surface. He had a career, money, family, everything that is supposed to add up to happiness. Behind this facade, at the core of his being, he felt trapped and unfulfilled. In his own words, he was a “human doer,” not a human being. Unfortunately,  many people live this way.

Fortunately,  you don’t have to almost lose your life to transform from human doer to human being. Michael’s experience and the lessons he learned from it can help you enrich your life personally and financially.

Michael fell in love with bicycles as a child. His passion for cycling grew into his adulthood. He took his bike with him on a business trip with the intention of combining work with pleasure. That decision almost killed him. For a while, it turned him into a vengeful person.

Learn how he  turned anger into love, fear into courage, despair into hope, how he stopped being a victim to life’s circumstances and became a victor instead.

Michael OBrien offers you many other gems in today’s episode. He illuminates the difference between chasing happiness and being truly happy; he helps you understand the importance of your moment to moment self talk and why you should doubt your doubts.

There’s more than exciting, valuable, serious stuff in today’s episode. There’s warmth, humor, and entertainment. So join us for some fun and enrichment. You may come away with the priceless fit of knowing how to have your last bad day.
