Episode 126 – Michael Brian

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #126 with Michael Brian — A Fresh Perspective on Self-Improvement for Entrepreneurs and Changemakers.

Michael Brian is a speaker, podcaster, author, and entrepreneur that has not let having cystic fibrosis, diabetes, or being an introvert hold him back from achieving his dreams!

Having got to the other side of zero self-worth, having a host of insecurities, losing friends and family have given him a sense of mortality, motivation, and a loss of purpose. Today, Michael gives a fresh perspective on self-improvement.

He has been on TV, spoken on stage, and he hosts the top-rated self-improvement podcast — Ask Mike Show where he has interviewed influencers & celebrities.

Now, he helps other entrepreneurs and changemakers do the same and has written a book, “My Introvert Journey to Being Visible”, which takes you through the whole process!

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • Michael joins us on The HERO Show all the way from Spain! We open up the episode with the Covid-19 situation in our respective areas.
  • Next, we talked about Michael’s journey to becoming a personal trainer and lifestyle coach. How did he develop his business from being active in sports? And how does his cystic fibrosis play a role in his coaching career?
  • Then, we dive deeper into his main sport: tennis. Michael reveals how he transitioned from being a tennis coach to becoming a self-improvement coach.
  • Michael had a realization that there is more to health and fitness than simply doing the work. The mindset and other life factors like family and work are also important which pushed him further in transitioning as a life coach.
  • Wanting to help people from an early age as an introvert has given Michael the ability to listen closely to people before deciding when and how to speak. We unpack more about his superpower.
  • Most superheroes have a kryptonite or fatal flaw. For Michael, the thing that has held him back in business is the struggle of being technically minded. We break down the ways it has affected his business and how he has overcome these flaws.
  • Next, we discuss the importance of self-accountability and discovering the positive values — big or small — that you can bring to the world.
  • Michael reveals one of his learning secrets: learning from the differences between doing a particular thing the first time and the second time.
  • Then, we discuss what it means to fight for fulfillment and challenge.
  • Giving more than he can take is one of Michael’s life principles. We discuss the ways he is able to maintain balance so that he does not fall back to his old self of people-pleasing.

The HERO Challenge

Today on the show, Michael Brian challenged Jane to be a guest on The HERO Show. Michael thinks that Jane is a fantastic person to interview because she overcomes many expectations, and self doubt. Her story is more into rags to riches, what she went through before she became the person she is today can surely inspire many people.
