Playing in the NFL takes a toll on your family, Mike helped me keep my family as a top priority. My wife appreciated his wisdom in making sure we had date nights, and alone time to talk. I hear that the divorce rate for professional athletes is over 70%. Mike’s advice has kept us there for each other and our kids!NFL player
I used to have an bad attitude, I treated some of my teammates and coaches pretty bad. I heard about Mike from his website, I contacted him and found him to be a life savor. We talk by phone twice a week, I live in Minnesota, he is in Colorado. I can call him anytime I need his help. He walked me through the process of controlling my actions and knowing what the consequences are. He is so easy to talk to, and gets to the heart of the problem.NHL player
I play in the NBA, and I am on the road and in different cities half of the season, I have lots of free time before my games. I had gotten in trouble with some unhealthy people. They constantly want money, alcohol, and drugs. Mike helped me realize that there are better things to do with my free time. Mike suggested that I work on getting a on-line degree to get more education, this has helped me a great deal, and has kept me out of trouble. I enjoy reading and studying more then ever. I have no desire to hang with the wrong crowd any longer. He has my back protected.NBA player
I used to go all the bars I could after our games, There would be women, drinks, gambling, and fights. I have been in lots of trouble with fights. I have been in the news for my fighting. Mike has helped me to keep myself out of trouble. I call him when I start planning my evening, I also will call him when things start to get out of control, doesn’t matter what time it is. He has kept me out of trouble, I highly recommend using his services.NFL player
I remember our first talk on the phone, I was wondering if he could help me 1,000 miles away. In our first conversation, I didn’t have any doubts, he was a great listener, and I hired him on the spot as my professional sports life coach. Mike has been the best investment in my professional career. I call him and we will plan out weekly strategies and he gives me assignments to keep my life on track. My life has changed and my family and teammates have noticed big improvements. Thanks Dr. Mike.NBA player
I never knew what life was like in major league baseball, the pressure from the fans, and media was intense. At times, I didn’t know what to say. I would say some pretty stupid things. After my games, Mike and I would talk before I would talk to the press or fans, he really had some great idea’s about speaking with people. I have met some very nice people, I am glad that I have Mike as my Professional Sports Life Coach.MLB player
When I was traded to a new team, its was hard to fit right in with a new city and teammates. I have been working with Mike and he helped me with the transition and new decisions that I had to make when I was traded. He was a phone call away, and I have made this move to a new team pretty easy with his help.MLB player
As a rookie, I was way over my head with learning a new playbook system. Mike encouraged me to keep working and learning the new defensive plays. I would get down on myself pretty easily. I needed a cool head to keep encouraging me and pushing me to keep trying! He was with me every step of the way.NFL Player
Thank you for the time and foresight that you afforded me, not only in my personal relationships, but also in my struggles here at work. Thank you!Gary S.

Mike has the ability to listen. Mike is honest; he tells it like it is. He and I have shared a lot of laughter and tears.Larry W.
Mike and I have talked numerous times on business situations and personal family situations. I’ve only met a few men who have the gift of listening as Mike has.Dave H.
Mike knows how to listen when something serious needs resolution. He knows how to ask the right questions to penetrate and get to the heart of issues without hurt. Mike is one of a handful of men to whom I would turn for counsel and advice.Sam W.
I never dreamed in a million years my wife of 30 years would find her high school boyfriend on the internet and have an affair! The pain and hurt was unbearable, the feelings of loss, anger, and jealously were driving me to self-destruction. If it had not been for Mike and his understanding, and his crazy sense of humor, I don’t think I would have survived it. Thanks Mike, you’re the best!Walt
Dr. Mike is one of those rare individuals who genuinely cares about people and walks the walk when it comes to reaching out with a helping hand or word of comfort. No ego there, just common sense and a willingness to serve.MotuMikey
I heard about Dr. Michael Brooks on other sites so it is good to see him here. The articles I’ve read are full of good solid advice. I am going to school for counseling and he gives really important information about situations that I will be facing in the future.Britt
Solid advice and very insightful. Mike assisted me thru some difficult times. Easy to speak with and his advice is based on solid ground. He always returns your calls as soon as he can and he listens intently while you are talking through your crisis. You will not be disppointed!Gary
Dr. Brooks (no relation) was instrumental in helping me work through a very difficult time in my professional career. He was straight-forward, used common sense and a highly professional approach in helping me see the need to remove myself from a very difficult position. He helped give me life-long tools to use as I continue to pursue my profession with a new organization.Jeff Brooks
Mike listens carefully and patiently and is one of the most compassionate people I have come in contact with. Mike’s life experiences and education have provided him with the wisdom necessary to help people with the most challenging issues.D. Rodgers

Mike has given, listened, and counseled me in parenting and interpersonal family relationship skills. His input and guidance has put me and my family on a more righteous, and much better, healthier path. Thank you Mike.Deanna
Mike’s talent for communication is a gift from God. He blends intelligence and faith-based compassion with a solid positive attitude. He is strong in his convictions, but with his sense of humor one never leaves you feeling ‘beat up’.Bruce B.
When my husband deployed to Iraq and I needed a friend the most, Mike helped to guide me. When I felt like I couldn’t go on another day he was the first one to jump in and say “Yes you can”.Jill B.
Mike was patient, and my anchor. Little did I know when I started working on a weekly basis with Mike I would end up where I am today. With Mike’s gentle guidance and strength I learned I could move forward with confidence.Victoria W.

I really enjoyed reading your article…I wish I’d known of such a resource before my marriage ended. Thank you so much!Deanna
Dr. Brooks helped me when no one else could. He took the time to understand the issues I was facing, then focused on what I needed to move forward…both my professional relationships and my personal relationships have improved and I’m living a better quality of life due to Dr. Mike Brooks’ life coaching. He’s the best!Karen S.
My initial contact with Dr. Mike was for fitness coaching. He set up a program that has made my time at the gym more productive. I’m finally starting to see the results of his coaching and my hard work! Along with the fitness coaching I’ve also shared other personal and career concerns with him. He has been a wonderful source of encouragement when I’ve literally been shaking like a leaf with fear about my future. Although my journey is not yet over I have no doubt Dr. Mike is just a phone call away and ready to guide me in the right direction that will ultimately lead to personal and career success!Suzanne
Dr. Mike is the most caring and giving person I know. He has helped me thru years of emotional trouble concerning work and relationships. Over the last year he has helped me deal with a traumatic brain injury and the complications incurred. Dr. Mike is compassionate, understanding, and knowledgeable concerning all areas of life. Dr. Mike is insightful and has a wonderful way of bringing peace and understanding to any situation.Catherine
I have been talking to Dr. Brooks via email since 2005, when my husband deployed to Iraq. Since that time I have lost my father, my husband got out the military, we were involved in a car accident the caused permanent disabilities to my body and at one point my husband and I almost got a divorce. I credit Dr. Brooks for not only being a friend but also for helping to guide me through some very traumatic times in my life. I had almost given up.Jill
So much has happened with you, my husband and me, reading your articles for the past three years, my husband commented: “now this is someone whom I could talk to, he makes my kind of sense.”
I was speechless! Why? My husband in our 60 years of marriage knew he wanted to have a close husband-wife relationship, but was so entrenched with “spirituality,” he couldn’t accept his humaneness- a shield behind which he lived.
Well, about two years ago the 3 of us met, and my husband actually called you asking to talk. Petrified, embarrassing and awkward feelings were discussed and began to awaken his appreciation for all the good he expressed as a father, only son, and husband. He fought with abnormal self-deprecation and insecurities. I as his wife, could not understand this and our relationship has “endured.” and secured because of two wonderful children and then the four grandkids. And, and, and…..but no close friends, as man and wife. But my husband was able to unload so much to you Mike, and consequently to me. I would begin to understand some of his fear and trepidation, and you know Mike at that point I giggled, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. And he was so much freer as the meetings went on.
Within the year, he passed away, but we had a closeness and awareness of each other and some verbal appreciation that very rarely had been expressed during our marriage. His parting words. “I never loved you as I should have and wanted to. I do love you, and I don’t know why I couldn’t express it.”
My husband spent years working with church practitioners. Any persons of “outside” help were negated-until he read your words outlining a few simple steps encouraging one to bless, in order to be blessed!
Thank you, Mike. I still subscribe to the “Register Call,” newspaper; you are one of the reasons. Hope a few other people will pick up the phone and call you. Both my husband and I thank you. We were almost too late.
