Michael Port | Is Your Desire Greater Than Your Fear?

Think Bigger And Be A Contrarian

Is Your (1)

Until our desire is greater than our fear, it’s hard to put ourselves out there. If our desire is greater than our fear then we put ourselves out there because the desire to achieve what we want to achieve is more important than the approval associated with it!Michael Port

I have been blessed to get to know Michael Port and be mentored by him.  He is one of those rare people that always makes you better every time you are around him!

Launching Eternal Leadership after my accident was fraught with roadblocks due to my accident.  My marketing coach handed me Book Yourself Solid by Michael Port and it became my blueprint for how we successfully created value for clients and rapidly filled our coaching practice.  I joined Michael’s mentoring group and experienced his heart to equip others by serving and adding value selflessly.   We are excited to bring Michael on the podcast in this episode!  You will be equipped and inspired on how to play a much bigger game.

Life is a series of high stakes situations and we can think of many of these that we have been in and are coming up.  The outcome of these high-stakes situations determine the results in our lives.  Michael shares with us how to excel and take the steps toward the life you were meant to create.  Michael shares that the key to doing this well is to have an agenda focused on serving others.  If your agenda is SELF you will never achieve the results you desire.
