If you’re anything like me, you know that deep down inside you’re meant to do something great in this life. It’s unfortunate, however, that so many men settle especially when it comes to a career they’re likely going to spend the overwhelming majority of their waking hours in.

 

That’s why I wanted to invite back Ken Coleman, author of From Paycheck to Purpose. Today, Ken and I talk about the concept of “stealing time from yourself” to launch a purpose project, tactical discipline during the pursuit, the 3 types of fear that keep men from going after meaningful work, and how to take yourself from day job to dream job.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Culture has made it seem silly for us to pursue our passion
  • Pursue your talent, passion and mission
  • You have to steal time from yourself
  • Don’t sacrifice the “now” for the “next”
  • Instead of hearing no, hear not here, not yet…
  • Experiencing fear and doubt is a good sign
  • You’ve got to filter failure
  • Understanding three major sources of fear
  • There is no success without suck
  • Much of our strength comes from the struggle
  • Surround yourself with the right people

Every single one of us has past baggage and trauma. What separates us is the ability to internalize, learn from, and move past what may have previously hindered us. Embracing the past (and the lessons learned) is the only way to move forward productively and effectively.

 

My guest today, is Dr. John Delony. He is a bestselling author and has two PhD’s with over two decades of experience in counseling and crisis response. Today, we talk about dealing with past trauma in all its forms, working with incentive structures that produce positive results, overcoming stress, addiction, and loneliness, fighting against the east of modernity, and how to own your past.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Don’t let fear hold you back
  • Having conversations is crucial
  • Being wrong can help you win
  • Big “T” Trauma vs. little “t” trauma
  • Trauma happened, now what?
  • You need other people in your life to maintain positive change
  • Vulnerability is not “whining and complaining”
  • When is it appropriate to apologize

My guest today is the one and only, Tim Tebow. I had the opportunity to sit down with him in New York last week and, without a doubt, he’s one of the most genuine human beings that I’ve ever met. You could feel that from him from the moment he walked into our studio (which happened to be a hotel room in Manhattan). I’ve always wondered if the men we see online are the same men in person and I can unequivocally say, “yes,” with Tebow.

Today, we talk about where Tebow’s convictions come from, the powerful relationship he has with his father and his coaches along the way, why his work with those who have special needs is so crucial in the absence of manliness, the dichotomy between God’s sovereignty and our own, creating an edge in your life, stacking up the small wins, and, at the foundation of it all, how to create a life that counts.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Masculinity is lacking around the world
  • Love is a choice that we make
  • Kids see everything that parents do
  • Managing the expectations of others
  • Some people just don’t want to like you
  • Being respected is more important than being liked
  • The relationship between serving God and living your own life
  • Sharing the Gospel through our actions
  • God provides when we need it most
  • We should both rely on God and work hard

Men, this one is like a conversation with an old friend. Kyle “The Captain” Creek and I initially connected only several months ago but we picked up this conversation like we’ve been friends for decades. And, I think you’re going to feel the same.

We also talk about what it takes to be a successful writer and marketer, the difference between awareness and obsessiveness, how to deal with daily criticism, why people suck at delivery, cancel culture, grace, and so much more.

As a man, you are asked to shoulder not only your own burdens but often times the weight of others’ (wife, children, friends and family, and neighbors). It can be a daunting task but worth making yourself capable enough to do it with honor.

Today, I’m joined by two of the most decorated and recognized US military veterans, Rob O’Neill and Dakota Meyer to talk about what it takes to master your toughest battles. We talk about harnessing the gift of our strengths, why there can be no accountability in your life without conflict, what it means to have true integrity, the de-humanization of war and what it’s like to deal with the aftermath, and how to build a lasting legacy.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • People do stuff that’s special all the time
  • Living life on your own terms
  • Don’t confuse “speaking your mind” with “being an asshole”
  • If everything is racist, nothing is racist
  • Social media is a Trojan horse for cowards
  • Humanizing the enemy
  • The dichotomy between wanting to serve and wanting to be left alone
  • Defining your lasting legacy
  • A lot more grace needs to be afforded in society
  • Military members running for office
