After overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds, Michael has gone on to represent Australia in Baseball, tour with Richard Branson and the Dalai Lama as the opening speaker, opened an orphanage and so much more.
But beneath all those successes lies the story of multiple, massive challenges that he had to overcome from a very young age.
In todays episode Michael shares:
- His inspiring story of overcoming cancer and other health diagnoses multiple times
- How overcoming those challenges resulted in an incredible career
- His routine for anchoring himself every day
“Hope is the most powerful word in the English dictionary.”
“We must embrace the coolness of the shadows for us to have the ability to enjoy the warmth of the sunshine.”
“We must give without remembering and receive without forgetting.”
“Sometimes in life we have to hit rock bottom for us to wake up to ourselves.”
“We don’t need to see the abs after we decide to get out of bed and do sit ups, we just have to decide to get out of bed and do sit ups.”
