The Myth of Grit & Drive for High Performance

Interview with Michael Neill

Michael Neill is an internationally renowned transformative coach and the best-selling author of six books including: Creating the Impossible, The Inside-Out Revolution and The Space Within. He has spent over 25 years as a coach and advisor and highly respected within his field for unleashing the human potential with intelligence, humor, and heart.

Today’s episode is a conversation with Michael Neill. We discuss our personal journeys and what we’ve discovered by letting go of old ideas about what it takes to succeed in business. Michael once considered himself highly driven and breaks down the myth that the “unhealthy norm” of push, grit, sacrifice and severe stress are required for high-performance in business. The true source of creativity, success, and wellbeing is already available and resides within us.
