Mike Bechtle is a recovering people-pleaser. He grew up feeling insecure and began crafting an appealing and conflict-free persona so that others would notice and like him. But people pleasing becomes a problem when our motives are focused more on ourselves and how we benefit rather than on taking care of those around us.
On this Focus on the Family broadcast, Mike shares several personal stories illustrating his former tendency to people please, including embellishing stories to get astonished reactions and using others as "mirrors" to reflect what he believed about himself. If you struggle with people pleasing or know someone who does, you won't want to miss this broadcast as Mike shares practical advice for overcoming the compulsion to please people. You'll be encouraged to pursue integrity rather than living a counterfeit life for the benefit of others.
