Talk Title:
“On Living A Charmed Life: A Grateful State Of Mind”

Description:
The world is one unhappy place right now. People seem lost, like they don’t have any control over their own futures. They feel victimized, powerless and angry. Michael remembers a time during his youth when trouble found him, and a small book given to him by a stranger completely changed the direction of his life. In his talk Michael will share thoughts and ideas from this book that have helped him hold a state of gratitude even in the face of some of the most common perplexities in life.

He compels us to take responsibility for the outcome of our decisions and to realize that we are in charge of our experiences in life by our attitudes about them. He suggests that helping others can empower us. He offers solutions through his uplifting and often humorous stories of how he handled his own challenges. Friends have often told Mike he lives a charmed life. He believes that things always work out for him. These are not presumed to be conclusive answers for everyone, but for someone, a mere idea might open up a whole world of possibilities. After all, who may know the mind of another?

About Michael:
Michael Ostgaard Professional SpeakerMichael ran a successful contracting business for 35 years, while raising five boys. During the same time, he also served as a youth minister and a worship leader in his church, and started a program to feed the homeless in his community, which is still in place today. Michael currently spends his time writing, and developing his speaking and leadership skills, serving as Area G-2 Director and as an active member of his Toastmasters club.

Michael speaks of a time during his youth when trouble found him, and a small book given to him by a stranger completely changed the direction of his life. After 40 years searching for copies of this book to share with others, and finding that it was never published, he was compelled to publish it himself. Copies of “Buck-Up by ORLO” are available to purchase today from the publisher.
