Fans Shut down Michael Strahan's Motivational Advice after Some Disagree with His Perspective
Former professional football player Michael Strahan took to Instagram to share some motivational advice. Unfortunately, not everyone agreed with his optimistic perspective.
Sometimes unsolicited advice doesn't translate as well as it should. For American journalist Michael Strahan, his latest Instagram post sharing his perspective on success was not well received by all his fans.
The former New York Giants defensive end shared a #MondayMotivation post encouraging fans to simply "use visualization" to access and achieve anything they can dream of.

The post was a beautiful picture taken high above the clouds, with orange and yellow sun rays on the horizon and gray clear skies above. He captioned the post:
"Figure out a way to make it happen! It’s all about your mindset."
While some of Strahan's fans felt motivated by his perspective, others disagreed, believing he was simplifying a much harder process. These fans expressed their opposing opinions in the comments section.
One fan commented, "not everything is that easy," while another added, "Well it certainly helps when you have extra money." A third fan quipped, "Googles how to use visualization to achieve."
While most of Strahan's fans commented on the post, others expressed their delight upon seeing his return to "Good Morning America" after he tested positive for COVID-19 in January.
The TV personality, who once took a short break after losing part of his pinky finger, had been absent from his position as a co-host of the popular morning TV show while he recovered from the deadly virus at his Manhattan home.
Strahan managed to remain in good spirits during his recovery and even took time to celebrate his four children over the weekend. The former NFL player shared a sweet tribute to his kids on Valentine's Day.
Strahan and Muggli spent years embroiled in a drawn-out, contentious custody battle over the twins.
Strahan, 49, declared his love for his children on Instagram with a collage of him posing with each of the kids he shares with his ex-wives, Wanda Hutchins and Jean Muggli.
Strahan shares his two older kids, Tanita, 29, and Michael Strahan Jr., 26, with his first wife, Hutchins, while he and his second wife, Muggli, share 16-year-old twins Sophia and Isabella Strahan.
Unfortunately, Strahan and Muggli spent years embroiled in a drawn-out, contentious custody battle over the twins. Luckily, this did not affect his relationship with his daughters, with whom he remains very close.
