Get Back Into Workflow- Two Things That Can Ignite Your Drive with Michael Brian


We go through stages in our journey. We set our target destination, we walk it, and we live it. But between that first step and actually realizing that dream is where many of us get stuck. It’s where we have to face enormous obstacles, and many times, we sink so low to the point of wanting to give up. Gradually, the fire we once had when we started begins to die down and our determination dwindles. If you ever feel this way, don’t quit just yet. In this episode, Daniel sits with Michael Brian, the host of the award-winning podcast, The Michael Brian Show

Michael found his passion in collaborating and communicating with people, and the best way he knows he can do it while helping others is through podcasting. But six months later, Michael started losing his drive. Listen in as Michael shares two things that helped him get back into workflow and speed up his success with even more confidence. Stop tolerating unhappiness in your life. Otherwise, it will become a hobby, or worse, a lifestyle. Fuel your motivation and reclaim your joy!
