We’ve gotten so far from what is central to us being human, making it essential for us to find our center again. Much of this has to do with letting go of our ego, discovering the practices that bring us silence within, and aligning our actions with our true selves.

In this episode of the Align podcast, Micheal Trainer and I chat on a wide array of topics that ultimately boil down to how living authentically leads us to experiencing the greatest contentment, purpose and success in our lives. This conversation is a must-listen for anyone who is serious about leveling up in their lives.

Micheal helps you recognize the different ways in which you are living now and how they are pulling you out of alignment of who you are at your core. Plus, he gives you clear guidance on how to make the necessary shifts for aligning with your authentic self, as well as his formula on how to experience true success and contentment in your life.
