“Mr. Sissel is an amazing mental toughness coach. You always make sure we have the right mindset and have helped us through many mental blocks in our gymnastics. We would definitely not be where we are without you. Thank you for also coming to our school, because those kids need it too! We love you!”

“I was introduced to Mike my senior year of high school in early 2013 to be my life coach as I figured out whether I wanted to continue playing basketball in college and deal with the stress of senior year. He and I have continued our relationship going to this day. Anytime I ever need some guidance he is always there to help out. Even if we are not in contact for awhile, his posts and stories on Facebook always give me some daily motivation to seize the day. Mike’s energy, positivity, and passion for what he does is remarkable and I would encourage anyone to seek him out as a life coach. Thanks for everything Mike, you’re the man!

I needed help and I didn’t know it. In this class, I found out that I was living my youth as an unhappy person. Being in this class helped me see that I needed to branch out and be willing to change. I feel like this class was tremendous for me.

Mr. Sissel has been one of the most influential teachers as well as a role model for life. I found that his unique style of teaching incorporated real-life situations and events to create a respectful, interactive classroom. I found valuable life skills while in Mr. Sissel’s class, and overall his instruction and influence has allowed me to shape myself into a well-rounded individual.

My life coaching sessions with Mike have encouraged me to dream bigger. He gives me tools that help motivate me to work harder to achieve my goals, and gives me confidence in myself that I have what it takes to accomplish them. I have also learned to use my leadership skills to help inspire others. I love that I can just be myself and think outside the box!
Going to see Mike helps to give me a sense of control. It helps me to get in control of my feelings. He makes life easier and calmer. If you are in a tough situation, he helps you with it.
