“The world is what you think it is. Change the way you think and you will change the way you experience life,” says bestselling author and transformative coach Michael Neill, in his book Supercoach: 10 Secrets to Transform Anyone’s Life.
For more than twenty years, Michael Neill has been helping clients fulfill their dreams – whether they want to make more money, build their businesses, improve their relationships, or find greater contentment in their day-to-day lives. He shows them that meaningful transformation can be almost effortless. In Supercoach: 10 Secrets to Transform Anyone’s Life, Neill shares the advice that has worked so well for his clients, presenting ten coaching “secrets” that can be implemented at a reader’s own pace. Each secret, which is illustrated with case studies and anecdotes, is designed to be a catalyst – something that will spark a reader’s own insights about how he or she thinks, lives, and works. The book also includes specific actions that people can take to actually experience change and incorporate it into their lives.
“The key to transformation,” explains Neill “is making changes from the inside out. When you learn to live your life from the inside out, stress disappears and worry becomes almost non-existent. You realize that you were born happy and the worst thing that can ever happen to you is a thought – a thought about whatever you think is the worst thing that could ever happen to you.”
Many of Neill’s coaching secrets are counter-intuitive. Take goal setting, for instance. He explains, “Obsessing about goals is like playing a game of fetch with yourself, using your happiness and self-worth as the bone. Even when you do reach your goals, you only allow yourself a fleeting moment of satisfaction before throwing your happiness even further away into the future than before.” It’s not that you can’t get what you want – on the contrary, many of Neill’s clients have achieved great success in the world. It’s just that people don’t have to wait to be successful in the future to begin really enjoying their lives right now.
Have An Average Day
Another important insight revealed in Supercoach: 10 Secrets to Transform Anyone’s Life is why having an “average day” is more powerful than having a “great day.” This concept refers to people’s unquenchable thirst for over achievement and recognition. “Everyone wants to have an ‘amazing day’, but the truth is, most days aren’t ‘amazing’ – and when you think they’re supposed to be, you wind up feeling like a failure. Stringing together a series of average days doing what you love and want to do is actually quite extraordinary,” he writes. “Imagine how much can be achieved in six months, for example, by spending forty-five minutes on a particular project, every single day.

Learning how to feel comfortable asking for what you want is another step to transforming your life. As Neill says, “you can ask anyone for anything if you make it ok for them to say ‘no’. Once you recognize that ‘no’ is never personal, it gets easier and easier to ask for what you want.”
Neill also addresses money matters in an in-depth chapter titled, The Secret to a Lifetime of Financial Security. Here he helps readers change their relationship to money by absorbing the concept that “financial security does not come from the amount of money you currently have; it comes from your ability to get more of it whenever you want. Master the art of serving others and you will secure your financial future.”
Ultimately, Supercoach: 10 Secrets to Transform Anyone’s Life is a book that encourages people to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others. Filled with practical, hands-on advice, plus tools and exercises to make change happen, Supercoach: 10 Secrets to Transform Anyone’s Life is the next best thing to having Michael Neill work as your own personal mentor and coach.
