What Does It Take to Change?
Join host Christy Demetrakis and her special guest Mike House for “What Does It Take To Change?”  In this episode, Mike shares his transformation from self-hate to positive and empowered by changing his thoughts and beliefs.Mike House is a thought provoking speaker, with a focus on personal development. The greatest gift one can give to the world is being their best self. In order to accomplish this, one must be aware of their purpose and begin to take steps to fulfill it. Mike House’ discovery of purpose was life changing. It was freedom. He went from merely existing to living. The question, “Why am I here?” had been answered, and his mission is to aid others in reaching their full potential. Equipping others through speaking and providing strategies is what Mike House does best. His “back to the basics” approach is applicable to all audiences. Whether it is leadership, strategy, personal or team development, his message is empowering and will elevate thought in order to make dreams possible.Mike House discovered his passion to be a speaker within a few years of his own personal development journey. He realized the power of his story and conveying it to others through speaking. Raised in a low socioeconomic single parent home, with minimal value on education, and tragically losing his father at age 13, Mike House has overcome several challenges that would have deterred many. His achievements include being a first generation college graduate, having a successful corporate career, and being a devoted husband and father. Some may view this as an ordinary life, but it is extraordinary for one that was conditioned to settle for mediocrity. Such wins brought forth a brief feeling of accomplishment; however, true fulfillment had not been obtained as Mike House’ purpose was still unknown. He learned no matter what one achieves, true happiness and success occurs when operating in purpose.  “The Mind” Self-Study CourseFaith to Conquer Fear™ Free Resources
