Stories run our world...change your story, transform your life.
Overwhelmed? Busy? Stressed? Here are stories to empower you.

Mike James Stories is a proud supporter of mental health awareness. A portion of every album sale goes towards suicide prevention and the funding of mental health organizations.

All of us are alive, but few of us truly live...


Imagine a little monkey, running and playing free off in a warm jungle somewhere. It has everything it needs, and then...


Imagine it is captured and taken to live in a zoo. It can still run and play free, though only inside its cage. It still has everything it needs, and...


Do you know what happens when that cage door is left open? It's been shown that animals, say a monkey, a lion, a lemur, you and I...either stay in the cage, on the cage or don't venture too far from it so that when "danger" or the unknown presents itself, it can run back into the safety of the cage. I'm here to tell you...


You are the monkey.

You are the cage.

And you are the key to your freedom.


So what's your cage? We all have them.


Is it addiction? Restlessness? Busy distractions? Relationships? Stress, anxiety, worry, fear, or doubt?


These have been taught to us. They aren't actually us though.


Did you know that in the United States:

  • 60% of adults have a chronic illness

  • 70% are taking one or more prescriptions

  • 80% are not flourishing mentally or emotionally

  • 97.3% are not keeping daily health habits

I myself have struggled and pushed through all of the cages trapping me. I did and continue to do the inner work to free myself.


I became a Certified Life Coach and have coached over 900 clients to greater health and fulfillment. I have learned skills of how to help you break patterns, identify and move through blockages and end the cycle of the stories in your life that are dying (literally) for a new page.


I help free others from their cages, starting with my own.

And you can too.

Read on to discover how life can open up for you when you free yourself from the cage that's been keeping you from it...
