Let's be honest, Yoga isn't a thought you'd immediately conjure up as manly. But, as I've recently discovered, participating in Yoga has significantly improved my performance, strength, and fitness all of which every man should be striving to improve.

Today, I'm joined by repeat guest, Dean Pohlman, to talk about his new book. We cover why every man should consider incorporating Yoga in his fitness regimen, how flexibility improves strength, the unknown benefits for men of participating in Yoga, and how a man can learn to connect mind and spirit through the practice of Yoga.

  • The benefits for men of doing Yoga
  • The difference between Yoga and simply stretching
  • The spiritual component of practicing Yoga

  • How to develop more "flow"
  • How Yoga helps improve heart rate variability
  • How flexibility improves strength
  • Developing a personal philosophy for life
  • Why Yoga pairs well with resistance training
  • How often one should do Yoga

  • How to get started


DEAN POHLMAN

My guest today is my friend Dean Pohlman. Dean and I met years ago when he was first on my show. Since then, we've become friends and I've started incorporating some of what he's been teaching into my own life.

He is the founder of Man Flow Yoga, which is an online platform designed to help men learn the fundamentals and foundation of Yoga, and how it can improve every aspect of their fitness.

I was a little skeptical at first but I've been amazed and how much this guy knows about functional fitness, strength building, and men's health in general.

Today, we talk about a lot of different elements of health and fitness including the message from his latest book, Yoga Fitness for Men.

Today, we talk about the importance of finding a hobby and 5 strategies for finding hobbies that engage your mind and soul. It's easy to dismiss the notion of carving out time for ourselves considering all our responsibilities but it's imperative if we have any hope of becoming the men we're capable of becoming.

There is no shortage of diet and nutrition advice out there. Most of it is hype, gimmicky, extremely biased, and untested/unfounded. It's no wonder though as most of us are after the quick fix to a lifetime of making bad food and exercise choices.

Today, I am joined by Chad Howse, author of "The Man Diet," to talk about why these other diets fail and why a man's approach to what he eats should be relatively simple. We talk about the specific benefits of incorporating this style of nutrition in your life, why intermittent fasting works so well, keys to developing testosterone naturally and safely, society's emasculation of men, and why you should consider incorporating the "Man Diet" into your life.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why this has been dubbed the "man diet"
  • The benefits of incorporating this diet into your life
  • The power of intermittent fasting
  • Common myths when it comes to diet and nutrition
  • Keys to developing testosterone naturally and safely
  • Why competition is critical in developing testosterone
  • The chemical differences between men and women
  • How to track macronutrients
  • Why you should consider adopting the mantra, "excellence in all things"
  • The damaging effects of cortisol levels and how to reduce them
  • The danger of society's emasculation of men
  • The "do's" and "don't's" of eating clean


CHAD HOWSE


My guest today is someone that I've been following and paying attention to for quite some time.

We only recently connected with the release of his latest book, The Man Diet. He has been on a mission over the past several years of reclaiming what it means to be a man and his goals and objectives are very much in alignment with what we share here in the Order of Man.

He is the founder of Chad Howse Fitness and Average 2 Alpha and today he is here to talk about the power of incorporating what he has dubbed, "the man diet."

The path of most resistance. It's a term you'll rarely hear. That's because we, as men, are hard-wired to look for the path of least resistance. And, while there's merit to being efficient and effective in the quickest, most convenient way possible, it's not always in our best interest to take the easy route. Today, I share why.

Every man, at some point, will lose his way. It's not really a question of "if" but a question of "when." When that day comes, the way you decided to face that adversity will spell the difference in you overcoming or succumbing.

My guest today, powerlifter Brandon Lilly, is a man who has faced his fair share of obstacles but refuses to quit and always charges forward. We talk about the power of saying "no," why nothing ends with a period, how to develop more confidence, overcoming the need to be seen, and why every man ought to consider adopting the mantra, "Work, Don't Whine."


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

• Why working without whining is so powerful
• How to say "no"
• Why problems scale and how to avoid it
• Why nothing ends with a "period"
• Finding the middle ground and why it's so important
• Why the way we do things matters
• How to develop and build more confidence
• Overcoming the need to be seen
• How ego and arrogance are hurting you
• The power of integrity and telling the truth


BRANDON LILLY

My guest today is my friend, Brandon Lilly. A lot of you know who this man is but if you don't, I'm not sure how you've missed him.

He's one of the biggest men I know and certainly one of the strongest. He is ranked as one of the strongest powerlifters and consistently lifts more than 2,000lbs combined in the deadlift, squat and bench press.

He's worked with and consulted SEAL Teams, University of Kentucky Football, the Bengals, and numerous other organizations and Crossfit gyms around the country.

But on top of all that, he's a man who is extremely humble in failure and victory (you'll hear some of those stories today). Today he's going to be talking about overcoming some of his trials and why he's adopted "Work, Don't Whine" as his mantra.

There are a lot of men who want to fix their marriages. While it sounds counterintuitive, the best way to fix your marriage is to fix yourself. Because, when you improve who you are as a man and how you're showing up as a husband, you're naturally going to produce a better marriage. Sure, a strong marriage is the result of the things that both you and your wife are doing but there's nothing you can do about her. That's why it's best to focus on the one thing you can control - yourself.

Here are 7 ways to do just that...

Every man will, at some point, be placed in a position of leadership, whether it's in the walls of his home, a new project at work, a promotion, ecclesiastical services, with friends, or simply leading himself. His ability to lead effectively will spell the difference between success and failure in any endeavor.

Today, I am joined by retired Green Beret Lieutenant Colonel, Scott Mann to talk about how to be a strong leader. We talk about the importance of becoming a great storyteller, how to play your position well and allow others to do the same, why leaders need to learn to get out of the way, and how you can lead from the top.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why leaders need to become great storytellers
  • The importance of becoming your own hero
  • How great leaders learn to play their position
  • Why leaders need to learn to get out of the way
  • How leaders communicate across cultures
  • How we locate ourselves through others' stories
  • The power of writing your own story
  • Why you need to meet people where they are
  • How to solicit feedback from your team
  • How to create win-win situations
  • How to negotiate more effectively
  • Why all great leaders have a service mindset


LIEUTENANT COLONEL SCOTT MANN


Today, I have the honor of introducing you to retired Green Beret Lieutenant Colonel, Scott Mann.

He is a master at building relationships in high-stakes, competitive environments, as you might imagine. He spent 23 years in the United States Army (18 of which in were spent as a Green Beret) where he specialized in missions all over the world including Colombia, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

He is also a regular contributor on CNN, Fox, and Bloomberg, and many others where he shares his insights and experience when it comes to leading teams effectively.

Obviously, he's worked in some extremely hostile environments where he's been able to lead missions effectively through his ability to build trust and credibility where most of that had been destroyed.

Every time you turn around, you're bombarded with a thousand ads, a million choices, and an endless supply of options and "opportunities." It's becoming increasingly difficult to manage the landscape of the ever-growing decisions that need to be made. Add to that our desire to be seen and perceived a certain way by people we may not even know or like, and it's easy to see why the disease of wanting more is becoming a real problem.

My guest today, Joshua Becker, makes the case for why more is less. He argues (and, I agree) that having less stuff in our life can truly unlock the key to a more meaningful and purpose-driven life. We talk about the benefits of owning less, why we have the desire to own more than we'll ever need or use, the burden extra possessions place on our lives, and how you can become a minimalist.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The positive benefits of owning less
  • The first things you should get rid of
  • Why living on less can be so challenging
  • How our brains aren't able to handle maximum input
  • The burden "stuff" places on our lives
  • Three reasons we feel the need to own so much stuff
  • How to build the habit of living off less
  • How to decide what the keep and what to eliminate
  • Why money does not equal happiness and security
  • The power of being more generous with your money
  • How to overcome the resistance to living minimally
  • The very first steps to reducing your amount of possessions


JOSHUA BECKER

Gentlemen, I have the honor of introducing you to my guest today, Joshua Becker.

He is the founder of Becoming Minimalist and the bestselling author of The More of Less. And, in the spirit of the message we'll be discussing today, I will keep this introduction short.

We were introduced by a mutual friend who had taken much of what Joshua has been teaching and incorporating it into his own life. I did some initial research and immediately recognized a need to adopt the practice of "rational minimalism" into my own. I've already begun implementing some of his teachings and I can honestly say I've been able to free up more mental and physical capacity for more important pursuits in my life.

Society is becoming softer. Society is becoming weaker. This idea of softness is perpetuated by much of society, the school system, media, and entertainment and Hollywood. We do ourselves a huge disservice when we overlook the importance of being strong, tough, gritty, resilient, and all the things that we would traditionally think of when we think of how a man shows up in life.

I'm not suggesting by any means that a man can't be loving, supportive, open, and vulnerable. Of course, he can be those things. There is a time and a place to be that way but to say that that's always the case, to say that we need to be softer at the expense of these other masculine virtues, is hurting society in general. There will come a point in time where those traditional masculine virtues are to be used in order to produce productive outcomes for ourselves, our loved ones, and the people we care about.

Typically, this manifests itself in a negative situation, whether that's something in the family like a divorce, loss of a loved one, or being laid off from a job, but it also applies to natural disasters and emergencies. For example, Hurricane Harvey in Texas and the fires in California last year. During these times, we saw countless men, step up and do what it is that men do best. We also see why strength is important in the global arena as well when it comes to military conflict, for example. It's critical we never overlook the importance of harnessing the power of being tough, resilient, gritty, et cetera.

Today, I want to talk with you about some of the consequences and symptoms of the softening of society. And, I also want to talk about why softness is spreading. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but I do think there are some factors at work here that are promoting this idea of clinging to these softer virtues at the expense of the harder virtues. We're going to talk about how we can become tougher, more resilient, and stronger because the last thing I want to do is complain, whine, or nag about a topic without providing any solutions.

In a world where everyone and everything is clamoring for your attention, it is becomingly increasingly difficult to focus on the vital few as opposed to the trivial many.

My guest today, Greg McKeown, the New York Times Bestselling Author of Essentialism, makes the case for why less can actually be more. We talk about how to eliminate distractions, the criteria for measuring what task you should actually focus on, how to establish proper boundaries, and why every man should take on the disciplined pursuit of less.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why focusing on less can be more
  • How to ensure only the right things get done
  • The difference between thinking broadly and deeply
  • Establishing criteria to measure your decisions
  • How to eliminate the things that don't matter
  • How to effectively establish proper boundaries
  • How to refine and hone your gut instinct
  • Establishing practices for systematic execution
  • Why small wins are vital
  • How using the word 'no' is a liberating exercise
  • Moving your thinking from "can't" to "don't"
  • Focusing on the vital few rather than the trivial many
  • How to create more space (physical and mental) in your life


GREG MCKEOWN

Gentlemen, I want to introduce you to my guest today, Mr. Greg McKeown. He is a man who needs no introduction for many of you.

If you're familiar with his work at all, you've likely read the book, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less. In this New York Times Bestselling book, Greg makes the case for why each of us should strive to focus on the few things that actually matter as opposed to the tasks and projects many of us get bogged down with.

He's spoken all over the world at industry conferences, huge companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, and Twitter, and governments including a personal invitation from the Prince of Norway.

Needless to say, this is a man who knows what he's talking about when it comes to doing less but producing more.

I see so many men who don't have any level of respect for themselves let alone being able to command any respect from others. I was noticing the other day as I was walking to the post office, that there were people who wouldn't even look me in the eye. And, not only would they not look me in the eye, they were working hard to ensure that they didn't have to look me in the eye. When I shake people's hand, I get these limp fish handshakes. Those are just two small examples of the manifestation of a lack of confidence. It's bad, guys. You know exactly what I'm talking about. You've seen this in co-workers, friends, kids, and maybe even yourself.

And, if you're someone who is not commanding respect,  you are living a life less than you're capable of. I don't want that to be the case. I want you, as a man to step up, to be assertive, confident, to be able to ask for promotions, ask women on dates, and get out of this life what you should. And, part of that is being able to command the respect of other people.

When I talk about commanding respect, one of the things that I'm really addressing here is the idea of the "X-factor." We've all seen it. We've all been to a meeting, conference or office setting when we just feel somebody walk into the room. We turn around and see this guy who has "it," whatever "it" is. We can't quite put our finger on it but we know that this is a guy that has something special; there's something unique about this individual. What a lot of men do is write that off and dismiss it as something that he was naturally gifted or naturally born with. Sure, there may be men who have a predisposition to be more like this but I'll tell you what, being able to develop what most people write off as the "X-factor" is something that can be developed. I know this because that's what I've been able to do.

For a long time (especially when I was younger) I walked around very insecure, very complacent, and frankly just a little bit afraid and scared of life in general. I couldn't make eye contact with people. I couldn't hold a conversation. And not only that, I actually just tried to avoid people altogether. It wasn't up until relatively recently that I have been able to develop a level of confidence that allows me to look in another person's eyes. This newfound level of confidence allows me to ask and command exactly what I believe I deserve. I'm just telling you, from experience, it's a significantly better way to live.

I made a post on Instagram two or three weeks ago about teaching others how to treat you. A lot of people agreed with me and said, "Yeah, you definitely teach other people how to treat you," and other people blew that off and dismissed it. I believe that you and I are constantly teaching other people how we will be treated. We do this through our actions and our words and the way we carry ourselves We teach our kids, spouses, colleagues, employers, and bosses to what level of respect we will be treated with.

That's the last thing I want to see in men. I want men to walk around with their heads held high. I want them to have a level of confidence in what they're doing, who they are, and how they show up because I believe that this will, first, save their sanity and well-being and, second, determine much of their success.

We all know that we need to be mentally tough. There's no question of that. Yet, forging mental toughness seems to be one of the most elusive pursuits. All of us know how to develop physical toughness but rarely do we have any practices in place that will help us develop mental toughness.

My guest today, Ryan Lange, is one of the most mentally tough men I know. It's amazing considering he's only 21 years old. I won't get into all that he's accomplished just yet but please understand that the amount of physical strain he's put on his body is simply incredible. Today we talk about developing the capability to transcend pain, fostering the willingness to embrace hardship, why hard work is omnipotent, and how to forge more mental toughness.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Developing the capability to transcend pain
  • Developing a willingness to embrace the hardship
  • The critical importance of long-term focus
  • How to break those long-term goals into micro goals
  • The dangers of not developing mental toughness
  • How to effectively train the mind
  • Why hard work is omnipotent
  • How to maintain focus in a world of distraction
  • Our obligation as men to be mentally fit
  • Keeping yourself from wasting experiences
  • The power of linear progression


RYAN LANGE

Ryan Lange reached out a couple months ago and asked to come on the podcast.

Honestly, at first thought, I wasn't going to have him on because so many people talk about mental toughness. It's a little like saying you want to talk about leadership.

But then, I started looking into what this kid has done. And, I say kid because he's only 20 years old. Now, I realize he's a man (not a child) but I'm absolutely blown away with what he's done already.

He's completed 50K's, 50 milers, 100 milers, and at the end of last year completed a 238 mile race in Moab, UT. To give you an idea of what that means, it took roughly 86 hours for him to complete.

I'm incredibly inspired by Ryan and his approach to mental toughness. You will be too.

We've all seen the movie, Peter Pan. It's fictional work but it seems that more and more it paints an eerily familiar picture with what we see in the boys who never want to grow up into men.

I'll give you a prime example. Just the other day, there was a piece I read about a 30-year old man who had taken his parents to court because his parents were "evicting" him from their house. How pathetic is this? Maybe there's something wrong with this guy (obviously there's something wrong with this guy). But it's amazing that his thought process is to fight so hard to stay at home. I can't help, but there's something seriously wrong with him. But in addition to that, I can't help but think there's something wrong with the parents. How was this guy raised? How was he fathered?

When I was done with high school, we went on our senior trip. The day I got home - the very next day - I moved out. It wasn't' because I had anything against my mother but because it was time. It was time to leave the nest. I see so many boys who are more concerned with staying at home than experiencing life. They're more concerned with not having bills and upholding their responsibilities. They're more concerned with Call of Duty or Fortnite (or whatever the game is that they're playing). They're shirking their responsibilities. They don't have jobs. And, their parents are enabling them to actually do this. And we question why we're having problems with our boys turning into men. This is the failure to launch syndrome - the rise of the Peter Pans.

The good news is that there are some solutions to this. If you find yourself in a position where you're a boy or a male who wants to grow up but can't figure out how to do it, this article will provide the solution. I see so many men who use the excuse of not having a father figure in their life to justify their lack of performance as men. I can't believe that it needs to be addressed, but it certainly does. So, let's talk about this today.

All of us have a story. We all have a past. Our prior circumstances define who we are today but do not have to define who we will become moving forward. Too bad most of us never learn to rewrite the script.

Today, I am joined by a friend and man who is impacting and influencing millions. His name is Charlie Jabaley and he's someone who walked away from a multi-million dollar business to rewrite his life, lose a massive amount of weight, become an endorsed Nike athlete, and bike across the USA. We talk about what inspired him to make a life-altering change and how he is using positivity to change the world.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • How to turn your struggles into fuel
  • Why "war mode" isn't always the best mode
  • How to realize your childhood dreams
  • How to work smarter, not harder
  • How to rally people around a cause
  • How to use imperfection to inspire others
  • The difference between eating "dead" and eating "alive"
  • Overcoming a negative mindset
  • What it means to train like an 8-year-old
  • Using fun and play as the metric for success
  • How to step away from something secure into the unknown


CHARLIE JABALEY


I met Charlie several months ago when he and I were podcasting in St. Louis with Andy Frisella on the MFCEO Podcast.

He and I immediately hit it off and I was extremely inspired by him, his story, and the positive changes he is making in his life.

This man is a Nike endorsed athlete although he doesn't look like your typical athlete. But, it's a testament to who he is, his infectious energy, and how powerful his past, present, and future are.

Right now, he's biking across the USA in order to share his story and help others live the life they're meant to live.

Every time we turn around it seems like there's yet another school shooting. And, from what I can see, we're addressing this from a very surface level perspective. This is not about gun control. This is not about gun regulation. In fact, I don't even believe it's fully a gun problem. I think it's a symptom of the problem but not the problem.

Obviously, it has to do with the young men who are creating these situations. But more so, we ought to put the responsibility where it truly lies, which is on us as men. I'm going to explain what I mean by that. Bear with me, because I think you're going to agree at the end of this conversation that we've got a real problem with the way that we, as men, are showing up. And the symptom of that is school shootings and some of the other atrocities that we see in society today.

Before I get into the details, I do want to say again, this is not meant to be a gun debate but there are a couple of surface level issues that I do want to address first and foremost before we get deeper into this.

So, let's begin by addressing how we physically protect our kids when they're at school. There are some very simple solutions to this:

Competition is such a critical component of our journey to develop masculinity and manliness. Too bad it's often viewed as an unnecessary and antiquated way of operating by much of society. Heaven forbid we hold ourselves to a high standard and teach our children to keep score.

My guest today, Jake Thompson, Founder of Compete Every Day, makes the case for utilizing healthy competition as a critical factor in improving our lives. Today, we talk about why competition is so important, why executing to failure is so powerful, why losing does not necessarily equal "loser", and why men should compete every day.
SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

• Why competition is important
• How competition creates opportunities and builds capabilities
• What separates those who grow with competition and those who self-destruct
• How to compete at things that aren't a competition
• Why executing to failure is so important
• Why losing does not equal "loser"
• How to separate yourself from the pack
• How to find and develop value in yourself and others
• How to teach our children to use healthy competition for growth
• Why men are uniquely desirous to keep score and how to use that to our advantage

JAKE THOMPSON

My guest today is Jake Thompson. Jake and I met last year and an American Dream U event at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

I had the privilege of hearing him speak about the power and importance of competition and new that I wanted to have a deeper discussion with him about the concept.

The word, competition, seems to have a negative connotation surrounding it but I think you know as well as I do how powerful competition can actually be.

In a world that likes to take it easy and shy away from keeping score, Jake is encouraging more people to do it through his organization, Compete Every Day, and as a speaker, author, and coach.

There is a gap in most men's lives and, in fact, I would argue in every man's life. This gap represents what we know we should be doing versus the things that we're actually doing. This is the integrity gap. The larger that gap is, the less fulfilled, the more unhappy, the more unpleasant, and depressed you will be. The smaller that gap, the more fulfillment, satisfaction, joy, contentment, happiness, wealth, and prosperity will come into your life.

There was a time in my life roughly 10 years ago where I had a huge integrity gap in my life (again, the gap between what I knew I should be doing and what I was actually doing). Here's the reality: Everybody that reads this, including you, knows what you should be doing.

If I were to ask anyone, "How do you lose weight?" 99.9% of people would say, "Well, I probably ought to eat a little bit better and exercise a little bit more." If I were to ask how to build more wealth in your life, everybody out there would say, "I need to find a way to make more money and/or spend less money."

These are not secrets. This is not rocket science here. Everybody knows what they should be doing, yet when you look around in society you can plainly see that many individuals are not living up to their potential. That's the integrity gap. It's knowing what you should be doing, and not doing it.

Living with this gap is the most unpleasant, unsatisfying, and miserable time in any person's life. But rather than just tell you that there's this big integrity gap and you need to figure out a way to bridge it (which you certainly do) I want to share with you a very simple formula that will help you bridge the gap.

Continuing on the theme from last week (because I believe this is such a critical topic right now), today we talk about the fact that young boys seem to be going astray. The school system is stacked against them, society seems to be dismissing masculinity altogether, and being a man is something that actually has to be defended.

My guest, Dr. Leonard Sax, joins me to talk about 5 factors driving an epidemic of unmotivated boys and underachieving young men, how the school system needs to be overhauled if we are to re-engage our boys, the dangers of endocrine disruptors in men's lives, and how boys are going adrift and, more importantly, how to get them back on track.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • 5 factors driving unmotivated boys and underachieving young men
  • How the school system is stacked against young men
  • Why boys are struggling with academic achievement
  • How the school system needs to be changed
  • The dangers on endocrine disruptors
  • The effect pornography has on young boys
  • The value of consequences for young men
  • How to help our boys find passion and purpose
  • How to re-engage our boys


DR. LEONARD SAX

I was introduced to Dr. Leonard Sax's work through my wife as she picked up a couple books on her pursuit to more effectively raise our boys.

She came across two books in particular: Boys Adrift and Why Gender Matters. After she got done reading them, she asked if I would. From the opening remarks, I knew this guy had some of the answers to the challenges we seem to be facing in raising young men.

Dr. Sax is an MIT graduate, a physician, and a psychologist and has been practicing for nearly 30 years. He is well-versed (as you'll hear today) in gender issues and the crisis our young men and women seem to be facing today.

Today, I want to talk about such an important topic and one which is easy to overlook simply because we’ve all heard about it so often. That said, I believe establishing a healthy morning routine is one of the most important things you can do during your day as it really establishes the benchmark, the framework, and the foundation for the way the rest of your day will go.

The reason that I think most people overlook (or can’t even stick to a morning routine) is because there’s so much advice about it already and we begin to believe that we have to pigeonhole ourselves into one way of doing it. Here’s what I’m here to tell you:  I’m going to share my morning routine. Now,  that doesn’t make it the morning routine. It simply means that it works for me. The most powerful thing if you can do with regards to your morning routine is to find something that works for you.

This is a process of experimentation. So, again, I’m going to share with you what works for me. If you like it, adopt it. If you don’t like it, don’t adopt it. If you like parts of it, adopt part of it. You get the idea.

This one is special to me. As most of you know, I grew up without a permanent father figure in my life. I've mentioned in the past that there was a select group of men who helped mold and shape me into the man that I am today. I'm not sure there is another man in my young life who was as influential as my guest today. His name is Matt Labrum and he was my high school football and baseball coach.

Today, we talk about his influence in my life and thousands of other young men's lives, the power of allowing kids to fail (including some failures of my own), why competitive sports are so valuable in a young man's life, why he cut his entire team from the football program, and a man's responsibility to future generations.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The power of allowing kids to fail
  • Why competition is critical for young men
  • How winners continue to find a way to win
  • The politics of raising children and coaching
  • Pros and cons of coaching your own children
  • Our obligation as men to give back to future generations
  • How sports are about so much more than the game
  • Why one high school football coach cut his entire team
  • The difference between being a parent and being a defender
  • How to raise boys through the power of competitive sports


MATT LABRUM

Men, I did this interview a little while ago and I've been anxiously waiting to release it to you. Every single one of us has some very influential people in our lives.

Today, I'm talking with probably the most influential man in mine, especially as a young boy learning to become a man. He is a high school educator. He has been teaching for more than two decades and, in addition to that, he is a high school baseball coach (when I was in school, he was the head football, basketball, and baseball coach).

He gained some national attention several years ago after cutting his entire football team from the program for grade and attendance issues, and how his team was showing up in the community and at school.

This is a man I admire and respect as he shaped a lot of who I was as a young man and who I am still becoming. He never took it easy on me. We talk about two experiences in particular during this conversation but I never doubted how much he cared about my progress and the progress of the boys under his care.
