Higher education seems to be quite the topic these days. With the rising costs of education and the debate as to whether or not students are learning applicable skills, it seems inevitable that we'll see a shift away from traditional higher education to something more practical and affordable.

I've been an advocate for trade schools and apprenticeships programs for some time now but my guest today gives us yet another option to the challenges our young men and women face on the road to higher education. My guest today is the founder of MissionU, a one-year higher educational program that gives students the skills and experience to succeed after college. Today we talk about the rising cost of education and what can be done about it, how education institutions and students can and should work together towards solutions, bringing back the human element to schooling, and the future of higher education.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why traditional higher education is becoming less relevant

  • The future of higher education

  • Enhancing the human element to higher education

  • The rising cost of college and how to reduce it

  • How to create win-wins between educational institutions and potential employers

  • Utilizing technology to make education more efficient

  • The power of teaching "soft skills" in college
  • 
How colleges have an obligation to teach applicable skills

  • Where traditional education is falling short
  • 
How educational institutions and students can work together for solutions

  • The power of investing in student's education


ADAM BRAUN

My guest today is Adam Bruan. Adam is a New York Times Bestselling author, an entrepreneur, and a speaker.
He is the founder of Pencils of Promise, a "for-purpose" organization dedicated to building schools around the world. In fact, they have now built over 400 schools.

What's even more impressive is that he took $25 and turned it into this organization that has generated $30,000,000 of funds raised.

Since then, he has turned his attention to the challenges surrounding higher education and has dedicated himself to creating solutions to some of the world's most challenging problems.

You're going to hear the passion and excitement in his voice as Adam and I have a conversation everyone would agree needs to be had about where to go with our post-secondary education.

It is amazing to me how quick we are to talk to other people about their issues and their problems yet we seem to be incapable of recognizing the problems in ourselves. It’s sad because we spend so much time and attention and energy on changing something that is completely outside of our control when the real power comes from changing the thing that is entirely within our control – ourselves.

I get it. It’s easier to focus our attention elsewhere than it is on us. If we flip the mirror around and take a look at where we’re falling short, it leads to work and effort to do something about it.

Fear is something that every single one of us experiences but the reality is that most of us don't know how to adequately face it when it rears its ugly head. Your ability to understand your fear and how to use it to your advantage may be the difference between life and death.

Today, I'm joined by Tony Blauer with Blauer Tactical System in a conversation every man needs to hear. We talk about handling confrontation effectively, when violence is the answer, how to become what Tony calls a "courageous bystander," and how you can become more powerful by knowing your fear.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • How to handle confrontation
  • How to improve your "respons-ability"
  • How the brain learns
  • What is the survival response system
  • How the "startle-flinch response" helps you
  • Why some people don't fight back
  • When is violence the answer
  • Four critical moves in dangerous circumstances
  • How we overestimate our own abilities
  • The three-step process for handling threats
  • How to become a courageous bystander
  • What to do when you're punched in the proverbial face
  • Four steps to managing fear more effectively


TONY BLAUER

My guest today is Tony Blauer. Tony  is a self-defense expert and the creator of the SPEAR system which stands for Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response.

I know that's a mouthful but what he's been able to learn, develop, and teach is how to harness the body's natural defense mechanisms to respond to a threat of violence effectively.

He's been training special forces and LEOs since the 80's and is one of the only experts who has successfully affected training across all the combat-related communities: self-defense, combat sports and the military & law enforcement sector.

Today, you're going to hear the passion in his voice as he talks with us about stepping into the role of protector for ourselves, our families, and our communities.

Men are providers. Period. And, there's more than one way for us to provide: Financial, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual. Today, I share an excerpt from my new book, Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men, regarding how we, as men, can step more fully into our calling to provide for ourselves, our families, and our communities.

If you enjoy this excerpt, I ask that you consider picking up a copy of my new book, Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men. And, if you already have, please leave us an Amazon review so we can get the message of masculine sovereignty out to the world.

Enjoy the excerpt.

There are two days you have no control over - the day you're born and the day you die. Every other day in life represents an opportunity to choose how you decide to live it. My guest today, Dakota Meyer, calls this "Own the Dash." The dash is all the days between your date of birth and your date of death.

Dakota Meyer is a retired Marine and the recipient of the highest military honor one could earn, the Medal of Honor. Today we talk about how he views the events that earned him that recognition, overcoming an attempted suicide, how he has redefined himself through living in service of others, and how he owns the dash.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

What it means to "Own the Dash"
Turning adversity into opportunity
The value of service to others in overcoming struggle
How humility allows you to thrive
Not using PTSD as an excuse to self-destruct
Overcoming a suicide attempt
The power of owning your failures
How to make better decisions
How to find and connect with the right people
Implementing a team in your life
How legacy can drive you to do great things


DAKOTA MEYER

Wow guys, this has got be one of my favorite episodes to date. My guest, Dakota Meyer is a Marine, a Medal of Honor recipient, a New York Times Bestselling author, a business owner, and probably one of the most humble men I've had the privilege of meeting.

In 2009, he and his squad were ambushed by Taliban insurgents where he learned some of  his team members were missing. He went back to find them and, in the process, rescued 12 wounded and provided cover for another 24 Marines and Soldiers.

I was absolutely blown away with his perspective on those events (which was not what I expected) and the subsequent depression and failed suicide attempt that followed. Since then, Dakota has gone on to found a successful construction company and has now dedicated himself to serving others and allowing others to use his platform to share messages of inspiration across this nation.
Sit back and buckle up. Dakota is one of the most real humans I've ever met as he shares some of his personal stories (good and bad) that have made him who he is today.

Jan 26, 2018

There’s a term that’s being tossed around these days that’s really been bothering me the more I think about it. The term is “toxic masculinity.” The reason that term bothers me is because, frankly, it does not exist. It’s not real. And, to perpetuate the term is to do injustice to what it means to be a man in the first place – which is probably why it’s pushed with such a heavy hand.

I think there’s a growing movement to undermine masculinity and the term, “toxic masculinity (and others like it)” is just one way to spread the propaganda that somehow masculinity is bad, or evil, or toxic. It just isn’t the case. Masculinity, by its very nature is good. It’s strong. It’s assertive. It’s productive. It’s caring. It’s compassion. It’s charitable. And, I’ve even go so far as to say it’s loving.

Everyone these days wants to be an entrepreneur and while I applaud their desire to go out and create something from nothing, too many men are in it for the wrong reason.

Today, I'm joined by my friend and founder of Origin USA to talk about the meaning of entrepreneurship. This one is unlike a lot of the podcast you see on entrepreneurship where you'll hear the ten tactics every entrepreneur needs to know. We go deep into why entrepreneurship is so important, why you should and shouldn't go into business for yourself, why vision is so critical, ethical responsibilities and obligations, and why creating a business without compromise is so critical.




SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The value of entrepreneurship
  • 
Why someone should become an entrepreneur

  • Why someone should not become an entrepreneur

  • Why striping away your ego is critical to your success

  • Developing a belief in yourself

  • How to develop more confidence

  • How to use faith to take more calculated risks
  • 
Our moral and ethical responsibilities as business owners
  • 
The value of resourcefulness

  • How to find new pathways

  • How to revive old ways of doing things and "modernizing" them

  • The value of a challenge and competition

  • Why creating a business "without compromise" is a huge competitive edge

  • How to connect with influential people using timing and value


PETE ROBERTS

Gentlemen, today I am joined my my friend, entrepreneur, and founder of Origin USA, Mr. Pete Roberts.

I came across what Pete was doing through Jocko (who is Pete's partner) and was immediately inspired by his story and message behind him and his company, Origin.

This man is not just an entrepreneur but someone who has meaning and significance about the work he's doing to bring manufacturing back to his hometown and create a product that is entirely made in the US, without compromise.

More than anything, today you're going to hear why he does what he does, where his idea of vision, ingenuity, and discipline come from and how the notion of business ownership ties into our responsibility as men to protect, provide, and preside in our homes, our businesses, and our communities.

Again, this isn't a checklist-type interview of everything an entrepreneur should know and do but a conversation about ideas, responsibility, and creativity. Listen to the stories and the message Pete has to share, implement it, and I guarantee you'll live a more fulfilled life and help those you come in contact with along the way do the same.

One topic I see talked about more than just about any other is that of building confidence. It seems that more and more men are lacking the confidence they desire in their lives. I think there’s a lot of reasons for this so today, I thought I’d share with you why we seem to be experiencing more of that, and give you some very quick and actionable tips in order to develop confidence and, of course, the results that stem from it.

More than anything, you’ve got to understand that you are not entitle to confidence. I know you may think you know that but it’s amazing to me how many men seem to think confidence is something men are born with and that some men are just inherently confident.

I think that has some truth to it. Some men are born with a predisposition to be more confident in their lives but I believe the bigger variable to building and developing confidence is the ability to take action despite fear.

It's that time of the year again when the masses begin their new year's resolutions. Fitness, exercise, and nutrition is always at the top of people's New Year's Resolutions but all too often people fail within the first couple of weeks or months to stick to their plans.

Today, I am joined by my friend and fitness coach, Josiah Novak, to talk about nutrition and exercise and why people fall short of their objectives. We cover why they fail, how to create the right environment for success, how to get back on track when you fall off, and how to create a true transformation in your life.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why people fail with their health resolutions
  • Why we look for the magic pill
  • Common health challenges to overcome
  • How to create the right environment for success
  • The basics of establishing healthy nutrition and exercise habits
  • Why health is usually the first thing to go
  • How to develop more discipline
  • How to get back on track when you fall off
  • Identifying your values to keep you on track
  • Why you should focus on the process rather than the results
  • How to find the correct motivators
  • How to maintain consistency and focus
  • Best tips for exercise and nutrition


 

JOSIAH NOVAK

Gentlemen, I'm stoked to introduce you to my guest today, Mr. Josiah Novak.

I met Josiah through a mutual friend a little over a year ago and through getting to know him over the past year, I can tell you he is the real deal.

I think it's easy for us to assume that these fitness guys have always had the perfect physique but what I admire about Josiah is that he has gone through his own transformation of losing over 80lbs and is now dedicated to helping men around the world do the same in their lives.

You're going to hear that he's not all marketing and hype and another one of "those guys" but a real person who has learned to take a practical no-nonsense approach to the way we move, how we exercise, and what we eat.

Most of you know by now that we have live meetup in Nashville coming up January 26th and 27th. It is going to be an absolutely killer event and I want you there with us. So today, I thought I’d pull back the curtain a little bit and share with you some of the details so you know what we’re up to.

If you’ve been to one conference, you’ve been to all of them but what we wanted to do here is create something truly incredible because the last thing I want to do is sit in a hot, stuffy room for two days and be talked at. I can’t imagine you’d want to do that either.

So, at the risk, of giving away all of our ideas on how to run an effective meetup for men (unlike a lot of these conferences), let me break down eight things about this event you’re going to want to a part of.

Self-mastery is something I talk about a lot. There are a ton of external sources that seem to be fighting against us at any given time but, even worse than that, is that we seem to be our own worst enemy at times. The best way to combat that is to learn to master your natural tendency to do things you know you shouldn't.

Today, I'm joined by my friend, John Dudley, to talk about archery which, at first glance, doesn't seem to have to do with self-mastery. But that couldn't be further from the truth. The amount of dedication and discipline this man has towards become a master of his craft is inspiring and something we can all learn from. We talk about becoming a more well-rounded man, the power that comes from honing a craft, why coach-ability is critical, becoming a lifelong learner, and how to master yourself through bow hunting.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Connecting with nature through bow hunting
  • Becoming more a well-rounded man
  • Taking ownership of your life
  • The power that comes from honing a craft
  • Why coach-ability is critical
  • Ethical responsibilities we have
  • The value of knowing where your food comes from
  • Where training comes into play
  • The relationship between want and waste
  • Why repetition is so important
  • Being a lifelong learner
  • Holding yourself to a higher standard


JOHN DUDLEY

Guys, I'm stoked to bring you this conversation with one of the most qualified men to talk with you about mastery and discipline.

I recently picked up archery and, in fact, I harvested my first deer earlier this year. I underestimated what it would take to make that hunt a success but a lot of what I learned, I learned from my guest, John Dudley.

He's been involved in archery since he was 10 years old (he talks about his first hunt) and since went on to shoot professionally for 20 years with over 120 events worldwide including gold and silver medal with the US archery team.

He's dedicated his life to archery and you're going to hear the passion in his voice as he is striving to become a master in his and show us how to master ours.

I want you to take a serious, truthful look at your life. When is the last time you went on an adventure? I'm not talking about a date with your wife, or trying a new restaurant, or you happened to take a new way to work. I'm talking about a real adventure that scared you, pushed you, and made you feel alive?

Today I'm joined by adventure enthusiast, Laval St. Germain to talk about why it's critical we "step out, and shove off." Today we cover establishing new perspectives for life challenges, why most men are content with living vicariously through others, the danger of cognitive distortions, and how to live a life of adventure.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • What calls a man to adventure
  • Overcoming excuses
  • Eliminating discomfort
  • Weight risk vs. reward
  • Creating a new perspective for life's challenges
  • Why we have a desire to prove ourselves
  • The concept of practicing misfortune
  • Mental preparation
  • The danger of cognitive distortions
  • Rising to the level of our training
  • Finding experts
  • Why living vicariously through others is never enough
  • Avoiding comparison
  • What exactly is delayed activation


LAVAL ST. GERMAIN


Today, I'm joined by adventurer and explorer extraordinaire, Laval St. Germain.

This man is so qualified to talk with us about living a life of adventure.

His resume includes being the only Canadian to climb Everest without supplemental oxygen, climbing an skiing Iraq's highest peak, the fastest ever crossing North Atlantic solo row, climbing the highest peaks on 6 of the 7 continents among other amazing accomplishments.

He spent 53 days rowing across the Atlantic, and lost three fingers to frostbite. He's a mountaineer, an endurance athlete, and a pilot.

What more can I say about this guy? He's incredible and inspiring. I know you'll walk away inspired to live your own life of adventure.

I’m looking at a few of my investment accounts this morning and one of the things I’ve invested in this year is cryptocurrency. As of this recording, Bitcoin is over $17,000. But, what I want to talk with you about today has nothing to do with the financial markets. The only reason I bring that up is because I’m amazed at how often people are willing to speculate in something as volatile as Bitcoin and, yet, when you ask them how they’re investing in themselves, all you hear is crickets.

Now, I don’t know where Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are going to be in the next 12 months and longer. Depending on when you’re listening to this, it could have skyrocketed even higher or completely crashed and burned. But, what I do know is that finding a way to invest in yourself this year will always prove to be a good investment.

So, today, I thought I’d cover six ways you can and should invest in yourself. Again, this is not going to have anything to do with any financial markets. I am a financial advisor by trade but I don’t want to talk about that. I want to talk with you about the best asset you’ll ever have – yourself. And, if that’s truly the case, you’re going to want to invest more heavily in yourself than you have in the past.

This year alone (2017), I will have invested roughly $30,000 in myself. Some of you may think that’s low and some of you will think that’s high. Either way, it’s all relative. The more you can invest in yourself the better. In fact, I recommend earmarking funds from your paycheck each month to invest in yourself – at least 10%.

So let’s talk about 6 ways to invest in yourself.

Finances is such a huge component of living your life to the fullest. But in my experience, it's often one of the most overlooked. Not because men don't believe it's not important but because it's often complex and challenging to get your money to work for you.

One of the most commonly asked questions I get is, "What book would you recommend for personal finances?" Although there's a ton to choose from, there hasn't been one that I consistently feel good about recommending. That is until now. My friend, Deacon Hayes, the author of You Can Retire Early joins me to talk about developing a personal financial plan, how to sift through all the financial noise, three investment vehicles to consider (including a quick conversation on Cryptocurrency), and how you too can retire early.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • What is "retirement" and how is it changing
  • The importance of finding your why
  • Knowing the right time to retire
  • How to develop a personalized plan
  • When and if to hire a financial advisor
  • Three must-avoid pitfalls of financial planning
  • Software available to help you build wealth
  • Why Cryptocurrency should fall into your plan
  • How to sift through all the noise
  • The most effective way to pay off debt
  • Three investment categories you should invest in
  • The power of the right environment
  • How to deal with financial setbacks
  • Commonly held financial myths


DEACON HAYES


Today, my guest is personal finance blogger and author Deacon Hayes. I actually met Deacon years ago when I launched my first podcast many of you don't even know about.

We've since had the opportunity to talk about blogging, podcasting, and of course money (which is something we're both passionate about).

Deacon has been featured in Yahoo Finance, US News, Investopedia, CNN Money, and many more and has recently wrote a book, You Can Retire Early.

You're going to hear in this conversation why Deacon is well-qualified to talk about money and finances and learn through his approach that the financial conversations and planning needed aren't really as complex as many institutions would have you believe. Get the note pads and your dusty old financial plans out and learn how you can retire early.

Whether it’s the argument that you got in with you wife, the way you treated your children, how you may have handled a situation at work, or with a client, there’s no doubt that all of us have faced guilt in our lives. This is natural and, actually, a productive emotion to experience.

I know a lot of you, when I say that guilt is productive, are wondering what exactly I’m talking about but I firmly believe that the range of emotions we experience – even the negative emotions are helpful. Negative (as well as positive emotions) are simply indicators of our lives. They tell us what’s going well, what’s not going well and where we need to focus our attention and energy in order to produce new outcomes.

It’s when we dwell on these emotions or allow them to cripple us from doing the work we know we should be doing that it becomes a problem. And, I see this time and time again with the men within The Order. They make a mistake they regret and, rather than learning from it, they wallow in their own self-pity and completely incapacitate themselves and their ability to move on and improve as a result of their mistake.

Look, I get it. I’ve made mistakes that I haven’t been proud of but dwelling on the past does nothing to enhance your future and there certainly isn’t anything you can do about it other than you those mistakes as fuel to alter the course of your life moving forward.

And, that’s what I want to talk with you about today. I want to talk with you about three very simple steps you can use to overcome the destructive power of unchecked emotions. Let me be clear though, I’m not talking about hiding emotions or just getting over it. I’m talking about using these powerful feelings we all experience to do the work of a man.

See, there seems to be two sides of the fence on this. One side says, “Men don’t express emotions.” The other side says, “Men need to be vulnerable.” I don’t sit fully with either camp. I think there’s a time and place for everything. There’s a time I can and need to be vulnerable and a time, where I need to simply get over it and re-engage in the work that needs to be done.

When I talk about "reaching your full potential," it's a challenge because reaching your full potential is pretty difficult to define, and it's a moving target. Once you think you've reached it, you realize you've only scratched the surface on what you can do.

Today, I talk with someone who is striving every day to do some amazing things in his life and helping you do the same. This is a powerful, powerful episode where we deep dive into some uncomfortable conversations about taking charge of your life and producing big. We cover the excuses we like to tell ourselves, learning how to take imperfect action, how to dominate and crush competition, and striving to reach your full potential.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • What is the American Dream
  • Overcoming your excuses
  • Learning to take imperfect action
  • How to dominate and crush the competition
  • The difference between being broke versus being poor
  • How to thrive on disadvantage
  • Increasing ambition
  • Finding your hidden genius
  • The power of mentorship
  • How to find and add more value
  • Tapping into your fullest potential
  • Developing self-confidence

It’s been said that, “The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.” I believe that’s true. We have so much access to the world’s greatest minds and thinkers and all we have to do is tap into those minds through the power of their written words.

I didn’t always think so highly of reading. In high school, I would do whatever I could to get out of reading and doing book reports. In fact, the only book I remember reading was The Old Man and the Sea which is, of course, a classic. But now, I read at least 50 books per year. I make it an objective of mine to read one per week.

I get a lot of questions about how I’m able to do this and, although that’s not the subject of today’s podcast, I do want to tell you it’s very simple. I commit to reading for at least 30 minutes per day. Every single one of us have 30 extra minutes in the day and, if there’s one thing you can do to spend that time most effectively, it’s reading. Again, you’re tapping into the most powerful minds and ideas in the history of this planet. Incredible.

So, with that said – and just in time for the holidays and last minute Christmas shopping – let me share with you five books that are an absolute must on that list of 50 I would suggest you read. Keep in mind that these are in no particular order.

Every time I bring up a conversation about style as it relates to masculinity, I'm met with hesitation because, "real men don't care about what they wear." And, while that sounds good to say, it just isn't true. If it were, we'd all walk around naked or a baggy t-shirt and sweat pants everywhere we go.

Besides, your style is a powerful tool in building influence, gaining confidence, and creating opportunities for yourself. My guest today is my good friend, Tanner Guzy with Masculine Style. I've learned more from him about what I wear, what it says about me, and how it's perceived by others in the last couple years than I have the rest of my life. And while it's hard to quantify the results dressing well produces, there's no doubt there's a connection between what I look like and my income, confidence, and influence.




SHOWNOTES

  • 
The difference between power and appeal
  • How your clothing communicates to others
  • Tactics vs. strategy in what you wear
  • The 3 style archetypes
  • 6 factors to choosing your style
  • How to focus on meaning versus just looking good

TANNER GUZY


Gentlemen, my guest today is my friend Tanner Guzy. Tanner and I met years ago. In fact, he was the second guest I ever had on the show.

I used to balk at the idea of dressing well because I thought it was more about what's inside a man than what he's wearing. And, while there is validity to that, our style says a lot about who we are.
Tanner is a deep thinker (which I appreciate) and goes well beyond how to wear a suit and what shoes go best with what pants. He delves deep into the why and the psychology of what we wear and how it produces results in our lives.

And, that's what we're all about here - producing results. And, if I can take learn just one thing about what I wear that will help me in my life, you can bet that I'm going to do it. Tanner is going to show us how.

This one is a little different for you today. Normally, on Friday, you get to listen to me talk about some things that have been bouncing around in my brain but, today, you get to listen to an on-the-spot conversation between me and my friend Collin Cottrell.

Collin and I went on a hunt together about a month ago. This was my very first hunt and I thought you’d enjoy hearing about it and the lessons that I learned along the way. So, I asked Collin (again, my friend and founder of Activate the Hunt) to interview me and, of course, I interview him about what goes into a successful hunt and why he does what he does.

Running a business can be a challenge. I know, I own two of them. At times, things seem to be firing on all cylinders and at other times, it seems like I'm just barely hanging on. Regardless of where you are with your business (and even if you're an employee of a business), there is always something to be learned in how to run the operations more effectively.

My guest today, Cameron Herald, grew 1-800-Got-Junk from $2,000,000 in revenue to over $106,000,000 in just six short years among other amazing business accomplishments. We talk about developing a board of advisors, attracting top-quality talent, creating work/life balance, the art of delegation, and how to develop, operate, and expand a business.

SHOWNOTES

  • How to inspire a team
  • Developing a management style
  • Scaling business operations
  • Running team meetings effectively and efficiently
  • Attracting top-quality talent
  • Developing a board of advisors
  • Finding work/life balance
  • Starting the morning off right
  • The power of delegation
  • 4 rules for a powerful business meeting
  • Creating a vivid vision
  • Utilizing a Chain of Command


CAMERON HERALD

My guest today, Cameron Herald, is a speaker, author, and business coach working with Chief Executive Officers and Chief Operating Officers around the world.

What I like most about Cameron is his no-B.S approach to building and scaling businesses. He has such an ability to cut the heart of the matter and eliminate anything that keeps businesses from growing.
As you heard earlier, Cameron grew 1-800-Got-Junk from $2,000,000 in revenue to $106,000,000 and has led and operated multiple other $100,000,000 business.

You'll see why that is as you hear Cameron and I talk about scaling businesses, the things that keep a business from thriving, and how to make the most of every single minute to maximize results within employees, officers, and the organization as a whole.

The other day, I had made a comment in our Facebook Group about being a Patriarch. Someone suggested I put that phrase on a shirt but I thought it would be better to explain it here.

Very simply, a Patriarch is the male leader of a family. It’s becoming painfully obvious that we are lacking male leadership in the home. Divorce rates are on the rise as they have been for some time and the amount of young boys and girls who are growing up without fathers is scary to even think about.

And, I don’t even think we’ve begun to see the fallout from the leaderless homes. Already, we see young boys and girls confused about their gender, we see violence, addiction, and the fact that the sexual misconduct perpetuated by men is seemingly climbing. I can’t help but think that a lot of these problems could be addressed by worthy and honorable male leadership in the home.

I don’t think all of this would go away but if more men would lead their families the way they’re meant to be led, much of the negativity we see in society today would dwindle.

I want to be really clear here. I know there are situations in which the mother is responsible for leading the home. Maybe dad is out of the picture for whatever reason. But, regardless, a man’s influence in the home cannot be replicated.

Men and women are different. Where women are great in certain areas, men fall short. And, where men are great in certain areas, women fall short. This is why it is so crucial that there be both a masculine and feminine presence in the home.

Specifically, I want to talk about the masculine presence in the home because that’s where we as a society seem to be falling short.

Look, if you’re a father and/or a husband, your job is to lead. Period. You are designed to lead. You were born to lead. And, what’s really fascinating is that the majority of women I talk with who tune into what we’re doing here are craving men who lead with honor, strength, and integrity.

So today, of all the factors that make you and I the Patriarchs of the family we’ve been called to be, I want to talk with you about three specifically.

There was a time in my life when I felt as if I was living for everyone else. I woke up to a marriage that was in shambles, a business that was failing, a bank account that seemed to be in the red more often than it was in the black, and a lifestyle I hated. That has all changed for me.

My guest today, Hunter McIntyre, although taking a different path, was also living a life other than what he really wanted. That was until he found Obstacle Course Racing and the passion for life you'll hear in his voice. Today, we're going to talk about how that discovery changed his life, how to identify where you need to grow most, the power that comes in trying new things, and how to life life on your terms.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

 

  • Identifying where you need to grow most
  • The value of meditation and self-talk
  • Developing story lines that serve you
  • How to refine who you are
  • The power of trying new things
  • Why selfishness isn't always a bad thing
  • How to shine your light for others
  • Discovering what the world needs from you
  • Learning to let go of things that no longer serve you
  • Cultivating the right attitude for life
  • How to keep the your fire burning


 

HUNTER MCINTYRE

Guys, today I have the privilege of introducing to you Hunter McIntyre.

Hunter is a Professional Obstacle Course Racer, a two-time winner of Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge, and is one of the highest paid Obstacle Course Racers in the world.

What's even more interesting is that what we might recognize in Hunter today was nowhere to be found when he was younger. Most of his younger years were spent doing drugs and getting drunk, run-ins with the law, and several rehab stays.

Eventually, he found his way into modeling working with J. Crew and Abercrombie and Fitch. But, it wasn't until he found Obstacle Course Racing that he truly transformed his life. I just watched this guy compete in the Spartan World Championships in Tahoe. He is the real deal. He is loud. He's in your face. But, there is no doubt he thinks big and lives life on his terms.

I wasn’t going to talk with you about gratitude because everyone is going to be talking about it with Thanksgiving and it seems to be a little played out but that thought goes against what makes gratitude so powerful in the first place.

I truly have so much to be grateful for and, regardless of your station in life right now, so do you. When, we overlook (like I was about to this year) all that we have to be thankful for, we forget that we already have so much in our lives and life is good.

4 years ago, I was fat, out of shape, and miserable. My relationships were suffering. My business was falling apart. And, I was at a complete loss on how to turn my life around.

DREW CANOLE

Gentlemen, I've been looking forward to introducing you to my guest and friend, Drew Canole for some time now.
