ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- With Transform Rockford taking place, one man is using his words to change bad habits in our community. Today a motivational speaker spoke at the Victory Outreach Church in Rockford.
Keynote speaker Kirk Bickham says he will continue to fail because he will continue to try. Bickham says it's not about the mistakes we make but how we learn from them. He says anyone that is dealing with issues like substance abuse or criminal activities can change their ways. Bickham says admitting you have a problem and asking for help is the first step.
"The individuals that are going to have to transform are the individuals that have the strong vices. We need to minimize that so the perception of Rockford definitely changes, and then businesses then will want to come to Rockford," says motivational speaker, Kirk Bickham.
Victory Outreach Church also has a rehab center where they help alcoholics and drug addicts overcome their addictions.
