Achieving your Dreams with Michael Lyons

Do you want more from your life and career? Do you feel stuck and daydream about your ideal life?

Then this episode is for you!

I’m interviewing my friend Michael Lyons, a professional speaker, author and actor (House of cards, etc). He’s also been running a company for 40 years in the hospitality industry.

He recently published a book, Set Yourself Free, which shows you how to reach your potential.

This book is an actionable guide for people who feel unfulfilled in their life and are unsure what to do about it.

Using his own life experiences and stories from other well-known people, like Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, etc, Mike’s book outlines tangible and achievable steps to position you to pursue goals seemingly outside your grasp.

One of the major takeaways for me in this episode was to figure out your passion. This book came out of his speeches – Dream it, Believe it, Achieve it, and the core message is that if we want to do something, we should create a plan and start taking action on it.

By taking action on that little idea, you’ll automatically gonna get new opportunities to grow it. I found his book and this podcast episode really inspirational, and hope you find it to.
