We did a lot of planning in the military. If you want to be success in business or anything in life you will have to do some too. You can’t rely on luck, that just doesn’t work.

Lack of Vision Continuing on with our series on beating burnout. So you feel like you’re making progress, and you regularly take breaks to let your batteries recharge, but you still feel a general malaise and a lack of motivation. What gives?

Tell me, what do you do after a win of any kind? You probably celebrate, right? That’s great. But if you want to rack up even more wins in your future, then you also need to take a moment and analyze your successes. Of course this goes for your failures…

If you do nothing, you get nothing. That’s the truth – plain and simple Now I am not against positive thinking and the whole abundance mindset thing. It’s just that you need to do stuff at the same time.

He satisfied Michael’s wish and sent him to Berlin, Germany where he had a great time in the “Divided City.” There began his love of travel. All together he spent a total of thirteen years living in Germany, traveling around Europe, the Middle East and Africa. His Army career spanned just over twenty years. spending time as an infantryman, paratrooper and Green Beret.

Best of all, during his adventures he found his beautiful wife. Together they had a wonderful son. He is very proud of both of them and so grateful that they are in his life.

After the Army he moved onto technology. He worked as a computer security expert keeping extremely sensitive information safe from hackers. He earned a Bachelors and Masters of Science in Information Technology and Business Management along the way.

Michael was recognized for his leadership, knowledge and ability to work with people. Very soon, he was moved into the executive ranks and led large business divisions.

Always on the lookout for a challenge, He discovered he had a gift for coaching. From the experiences, both in the military and in corporate world he has a lot to give back.
