In this second half of our conversation, Michael Taylor kicks us off with a deep plunge into anger - and men learning to feel and express emotions openly and honestly.Michael shares the story of dropping his own mask and moving from his head to his heart to begin the process of addressing his own pain, particularly his experiences of childhood trauma. He wraps the conversation with a riff on re-opening to the Divine and recognizing the presence of the Divine within. Note that since Michael and I recorded this episode, the title of his latest book was changed to The Good News Is, The Future is Brighter Than You Think. (Available on Amazon, of course!)

He knows first-hand how to overcome adversity and build a rewarding and fulfilling life and he is sharing his knowledge and wisdom with others to support them in creating the life of their dreams.
Michael is no stranger to adversity and challenges. He was born in the inner-city projects of Corpus Christi Texas to a single mother with six children. Although he dropped out of high school in the 11th grade, his commitment to living an extraordinary life supported him in defying the odds.
With persistence, patience and perseverance he was able to climb the corporate ladder and become a very successful mid-level manager of a multi-million dollar building supply center at the tender age of 21. After approximately eight years, he was then faced with another set of challenges as he experienced the pain and humiliation of divorce, bankruptcy and foreclosure and found himself contemplating suicide…
Bankrupt and alone, he committed to rebuilding his life which propelled him to begin a 25-year inner journey of personal transformation which resulted in him discovering his true self and his passion for living. As a result, he is now happily married (19 years) and living his dream of an extraordinary life while being in service to others. Through his books, lectures and radio program, Michael Taylor now coaches others on how to become genuinely happy with their lives and live the lives they were born to live.Learn more about Coach Michael Taylor at: coachmichaeltaylor.com and visit him on Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter!
