Leadership Coach Micheal Burt has released his sixth book Small Towns and Big Dreams – Your Destiny has NO City Limits to further inspire and motivate readers.
“City Limit signs have always been something that intrigue me,” Burt said. “To some people the sign is a line that they should never cross; to others it’s a line that says I dare you to be something more. What I think the line really represents is our unique experience and education that helps define who we are, what we do and why we matter. What you do with that is up to you.”
The Woodbury, Tenn.-native and former Riverdale High School coach has spent a decade connecting with more than 125,000 people around the world with the simple idea that they can make the transition from where they are to where they want to be, according to a news release.
Burt launched his book in three cities and will conclude with an event in Fayetteville today.
His accompanying initiative is a firsthand account that begins with changing the mindset and confidence of each person in every small town across America.
The news release went on to explain how, while in the Smokey Mountains in the fall of 2008, Coach Burt rented the movie “The Bucket List.” At the conclusion of the movie, at 2:30 in the morning Burt asked himself, “What is this movie trying to teach me?”
The idea initially was an evening of inspiration around Burt’s foundational work This Ain’t No Practice Life which combined music and a message with all of the proceeds going to local charities who are critical in helping people within these small towns. But this wasn’t the extent of Burt’s vision.
It would take the coach/ entrepreneur and host of “Change Your Life Radio” on FoxNews Radio WLAC in Nashville almost four years to write the book and come up with a real plan to help those in small towns do something big with their lives. It is now a plan he’s ready to share with the world and can be found within the pages of this book.
The book speaks to the mindset passed from generation to generation about the possibilities inside the city limits of a small town and the different roles that each of us play, the release continues. From parents to teachers, to coaches, to those in the environment either encourage or suppress the mindset and dream of a young person – his message is that everyone plays a part.
