Thanks again for coming to speak at the San Angelo Prayer Breakfast.

 

Upwards of 1000 (including over 200 students from High Schools and Angelo State University) attended, and feedback on the meeting has been 100% positive--not one negative comment have I heard.

 

Sandra Hulse has heard all 16 speakers over as many years said this--"We've had some fine programs, but I believe this is the best speaker we've ever had."

 

"Mike, you were entertaining, articulate, and a riveting storyteller. Your message to be your own person, have confidence in yourself, and not let others set your limitations is right on target and valuable to all regardless of age."



Max Hulse, director
National Prayer Breakfast

"While we have had many motivational speakers over the years, we have never had a speaker who was as inspiring as Mike Flynt. He tells his compelling story with the wisdom born of experience and with the humor honed by someone who is comfortable in his own skin."

 

While we have had many motivational speakers over the years, we have never had a speaker who was as inspiring as Mike Flynt. He tells his compelling story with the wisdom born of experience and with the humor honed by someone who is comfortable in his own skin. This is not a “sports” story, nor even really a football story—although for us sports’ junkies, there is some of that. It is more about personal growth and perseverance towards accomplishing a goal. Mike is a wonderful story teller, and his story is one definitely worth telling.

Many thanks to Mike for reminding us to dare to dream!

"Mike provided us with a top-notch story of how each of us can become inspired and motivated to make a difference to others in our lives."

 

“Mike so graciously returned to his hometown of Odessa Texas to be our guest speaker at our annual fundraiser benefiting the athletic department at The University of Texas of the Permian Basin. Mike provided us with a top-notch story of how each of us can become inspired and motivated to make a difference to others in our lives. His story is awe inspiring. He has used his abilities, beliefs and compassion to influence many. Mike thanks so very much for sharing your amazing story with us.”

"The purpose of this communiqué is to express extreme appreciation to you for the phenomenal presentation at Rockwall ISD Administrative Team Advance"

 

The purpose of this communiqué is to express extreme appreciation to you for the phenomenal presentation at Rockwall ISD Administrative Team Advance. Unanimously, the attendees were overwhelmingly appreciative of your dialogue and your willingness to share knowledge, skills, and abilities with the group.

All agreed that the Administrative Team Advance was the single best in RISD history. How fortunate our world is to have Mike Flynt as a respected leader! Again, thank you so very much!

"Mike made a presentation to some 400 pharmacists that was both motivational and inspirational."

 

I was given the book, "The Senior" as a Christmas present by a friend. I have always been told to not judge a book by its cover; however, I hoped the content would be as intriguing as I found the cover to be. It was! I read each page with great anticipation of the next page. I laughed, I cried, I reflected, I was motivated and inspired by Mike Flynt’s story. I finished the book and knew that I wanted Mike to speak at our Kroger Pharmacy conference. Mike made a presentation to some 400 pharmacists that was both motivational and inspirational.

 

Mike gave them all something to laugh about and something to think about. I absolutely believe that all our pharmacists walked away with some positive change in their attitude and life. I could not have found a better speaker with a better message.  Thank you Mike Flynt!

"His talk was certainly entertaining - but, more importantly, it was motivating, inspiring and spiritually uplifting for all who heard him."

 

We had Mike Flynt –THE SENIOR – come to our small mountain community (Ruidoso, NM) for this year’s National Day of Prayer activities. The night before the main event Mike spoke to about 400 kids at a youth rally and again the next morning to over 1200 adults at our Prayer Breakfast. We could not have been more blessed! He captivated both audiences. His talk was certainly entertaining - but, more importantly, it was motivating, inspiring and spiritually uplifting for all who heard him. This was our 11th Annual Prayer Breakfast and the response from those who attended – both young and old – was the most positive we have ever experienced. The only small problem we encountered was not having enough of Mike’s book to meet the audience’s great demand! What a good problem to have!!! If you are looking for a speaker who will truly bless your event, I would wholeheartedly recommend Mike Flynt.

“Mike did a superlative job when he spoke here in Houston at the monthly Oilfield Christian Fellowship luncheon held in the Houston First Baptist Church."

 

Oilfield Christian Fellowship Luncheon in Houston, TX

 

He is everything we look for in a speaker; sharing what his life was like before as a lost person and why/how he came to know Christ as his personal Savior, and then fulfilling a dream that few men in the history of sports have ever realized.

 

Mike is a man’s man. He is humble and yet comes across as the genuine man that he is.

His story needs to be repeated at men’s gatherings across the nation, as many men will easily identify with his life, and for a few moments will vicariously identify with his unprecedented success.

 

I highly recommend him as a speaker and promise that you will not be disappointed upon hearing his presentation or reading his excellent book, The Senior.”

"We hear great speakers every week at the club and this was one the best in a long time, truly enjoyable."

Mike did an excellent job as our speaker. He was funny, serious, wove his Christian faith into the presentation, and just made you feel good.

 

We hear great speakers every week at the club and his was one the best in a long time, truly enjoyable.

"Mike Flynt was super... great story!"


Salesmanship Club Speech in Dallas, TX

 

Mike Flynt was super....great story! We really enjoyed listening to Mike. It is amazing where he came from in his family life, and how he got through it. He has a very strong message for both fathers and sons as they have a journey through this life together. Mike made me want to be a better father!

"Today we are in a dire need of positive role models for our kids. Mike Flynt has the exact message that they need to hear."


Salesmanship Club Speech in Dallas, TX

 

Today we are in a direr need of positive role models for our kids. Mike Flynt has the exact message that they need to hear. Someone needs to positively affirm to our children that they are uniquely gifted and their ability to succeed is limited only by what they hear from the outside.

"Mike Flynt’s story was fantastic! Mike’s childhood and upbringing were both sad but encouraging and hilarious in the way he presented it."

 

Salesmanship Club Speech in Dallas, TX

 

Mike then discovered who he really is as defined by His Creator God instead of his Dad. Then the story really gets good! It’s an unbelievable story of a 59-year-old man fulfilling his destiny as a linebacker at Sul Ross State University.

 

What an inspiration!

 

Thanks, Mike.

"I was excited that you accepted our invitation to speak at the NSCA National Conference at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas."

 

 

Mike – I received your book and could hardly put it down, great job.

I was excited that you accepted our invitation to speak at the NSCA National Conference at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. Your message was well received by the nation’s strength coaches. I didn’t realize your were such a great speaker. You provided not only an informative positive message for young athletes but it was also very motivational. I’m sure all groups would love to hear your story. I especially enjoyed the part about you coming off the football field to see your family near the sideline and seeing your grandson there to cheer you on. Good luck with all your projects and it was great to see you and get caught up a little bit at the conference.

"In late October of 2007 I read an inspirational story in the San Antonio Express News about a 59-year old man who returned to collegiate football in order to fulfill a lifelong dream."

In late October of 2007 I read an inspirational story in the San Antonio Express News about a 59-year old man who returned to collegiate football in order to fulfill a lifelong dream. Fact is, he walked onto the football team at Sul Ross State University and after many grueling two-a-day practices, he made the team. The story was exhilarating and I realized that this man, Mr. Mike Flynt, was the person that I had been looking for as my guest speaker at the annual football banquet. I contacted Mr. Flynt and asked him to speak at the banquet in mid December and Mike agreed. On December 12, 2007, he gave a wonderful, heartfelt speech at our annual Del Rio Ram Football Banquet in Del Rio, Texas.  I was impressed to say the least and highly recommend Mike as a guest speaker at any event regardless of its purpose or content.

 

Following the banquet I received accolades from coaches, citizens and players as a result of Mike’s speech.  He is a true small town hero and someone we should look upon whenever times are tough and we think all is lost.  If everyone would look outside their window each morning with the same energy and enthusiasm as Mike Flynt, our days would be more productive and our world a happier place to live.

As I remembered Mike at Sully, he was a ball of fire and fury -a tough young man with a short fuse. When I met him again at the Baby Boomers Reunion I saw a difference in Mike that radiated throughout the room. This change made me feel very good. Someone planted a seed that grew. I saw a man that was filled with the sprit of Christ. He views this quest as a gift from God; I see it as mission of inspiration. Mike has brought many people together again that are proud of Mike and our school. I noticed Mike giving thanks for his meal and it moved me. This open exhibit of spiritual belief is a testimony for all of us that God can make a change in our lives and make our dreams come true.
