BOOK CORNER: Comedian writes new book ‘Michael Goes Motivational’

“Michael Goes Motivational” is a new book with a comedic point of view from actor and comedian Michael Colyar. In it, Colyar shares his real-life journey of drug addiction, recovery and rise to fame.

Colyar began writing the book following his national play, “Michael Colyar’s Momma,” where he highlights the love and support of his mother as he shares the story of his life growing up in a Chicago project and his journey to success.

“After doing the play, I said I needed to do a book because the play is so motivational,” Colyar said. “It’s about redemption. It’s about healing. It’s like I can change my life at any moment that I choose but what moment shall I choose?”

Through the creation of “Michael Goes Motivational,” Colyar is able to send his fans something tangible.

“I wanted to write a book so that I could talk to people nationally, because I am going to do a motivational tour, and I want them to be able to walk away with a book that gives those ideas,” Colyar said.

The book is filled with many lessons to encourage and motivate readers to believe in themselves and their ability to do great things.

A key lesson in the book, and a favorite of the author, is the “15% Solution.” This lesson encourages readers to stay motivated about their goals.

“You can do anything if you’re willing to put 15 minutes a day into it,” Colyar said. “If you spend 15 minutes a day, five days a week, in three months you’ll have that thing in your hand.”

“Michael Goes Motivational” is intended for a universal audience. The book is filled with light, positive energy and will evoke much laughter.

It is Colyar’s hope that his book not only encourages readers to stay driven but that they receive joy from reading it.

“I want people to walk away feeling good about themselves, feeling pumped up, and feeling better than they felt when they started reading the book,” Colyar said.

In addition to being an author, Colyar is a standup comedian, actor and motivational speaker. He is based in Los Angeles.
