You can find out more about him on, and also download some of his free audio sessions.

If you missed Michael on the Get the Funk Out! Show Monday February 27, 2012, you can listen to the entire interview here.

About Michael Luckman and his focus on fear:

    According to Google, 2,740,000 people worldwide search the word Fear each and every month. In a year, that’s almost 33 million individuals, just like you, who are seeking answers as to why their life is restrained by fear.
    13,600,000 people Google the word Joy each and every month while an additional 5,000,000 search for the meaning of Happiness. That’s over 216 million people a year seeking the Joy and Happiness that is missing from their lives.
    Monthly 6,120,000 seek the definition of What is Success? Before you can even begin the journey you have to know where you are and where you want to go.
    And many others are seeking the answer to overpowering Shame. Google says that 2,240,000 people a month want to free themselves from this debilitating state.
    If you’re a professional, small business owner or salesperson you might fear Networking. If you do you have a lot of company. 9,240,000 seek help every month.

Why am I an expert? Because fear was my constant companion for the majority of my life. When I had the chance to reflect back on my life I realized how many times I allowed fear to stop me from having, being and doing the most promising things, the ones that would have brought me the greatest joy, the greatest success and the greatest amount of abundance.

When I saw what fear did in my life – and saw how it was affecting others: I had to create a program that would help everyone to overpower their fears. Because when I learned how to overpower my own fear: my life, my health, my happiness was filled with wealth, vitality and joy. And, soon I was doing this for other people: friends, family members and other people in business. When they experienced the same miraculous results in their lives, well I wrote a book, created exercises and began to coach people professionally. That has led to seminars, workshops and even groups that meet every week, online and on ground.
