It’s easy to get caught up in complaining without moving into the next logical step – solutions. Let’s be honest, there is a lot to complain about in today’s cultural and political climate. But unless we’re willing to do something about the injustices we see in society, complaining is nothing more than empty gestures and platitudes. It was Plato who said, “The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”

Today, I’m joined by former Navy SEAL and cultural podcast host, Shawn Ryan. We talk about why politics and entertainment seem to be more about creating controversy than anything else, the hypocrisy in elected officials on both sides of the aisle, the impending danger of an open US border and Chinese globalization, raising kids in positivity, and why instead of simply complaining, we must be willing and able to do something about it.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Outrage culture
  • Hypocrisy coming out of the conservative side
  • Switching party as a publicity stunt
  • The race to win artificial intelligence
  • Contributing to the solution
  • The biggest problem our country is facing
  • The country needs someone to bring it together
  • The possibility of getting involved in politics
  • People need to take responsibility for raising their own kids
  • Don’t just complain, do something

Men, as you’re thinking about your New Year’s Resolutions, it’s easy to become trapped in day-dreaming . So many men look forward to what they want to accomplish but rarely do they calculate the plan to achieve their objectives and, most importantly, take the actions necessary.

Today, I am joined by former Army Ranger and founder of Bare Performance Nutrition, Nick Bare. We discuss removing ego from the equation, looking at life as a series of “sprints,” managing expectations with important people in your life, keeping yourself from becoming resentful and callused towards others, and the power of “forward thinking and backward planning.”

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Men bond over working hard
  • Getting started now
  • The importance of having a vision for your business, family, and life
  • The importance of delegation in a growing business
  • Finding your identity outside of your business
  • Backward planning your legacy
  • Getting buy-in from your wife when you are “sprinting” in the business
  • Why fitness is non-negotiable
  • Considering how your goals can impact others
  • Building mass and running
  • Is there a time when enough is enough

I think it’s safe to assume that if you’re listening to this podcast, you’re a man who is interested in becoming a more capable man. Unfortunately, the men who have come before us have, in a lot of ways, made it possible for us not to have to step up the way we as men ought to – as “savage servants.”

 

Today, I am joined by Nick Koumalatsos – a former member of Marine Reconnaissance – to talk about what it means to be a “Savage Servant.” We also discuss physical fitness as the foundation of what it means to be a man, why we must fabricate struggle, positive programming, and personal growth through humility.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • We don’t have to make the mistakes of our parents
  • Gaining vision for your life at a young age
  • Balance between a giving your kids a better life and fabricating challenges
  • Sons generally look like their father
  • Positive programming with your sons
  • We need to put effort into our kids
  • Moving past judgment of others
  • Humility is being a savage servant
  • If you prepare, you are less likely to need it
  • Our foundational anchor is physical fitness and health

Finding our sense of worth as men can be an extremely daunting task. We’re often led to believe that if we say just the right things, do all the things we should be doing, and achieve the success society has deemed appropriate, we’ll find what we’re looking for.

 

Unfortunately, many of us are left with a sense of emptiness in spite of our worldly success. My guest today is my good friend Granger Smith. Today, we tackle a conversation we really haven’t had on the podcast as we talk about self-worth, the danger in the “love yourself” message, why cultural Christianity doesn’t cut it, feeling like a fraud, and ultimately finding faith and hope in God.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Do things that are intrinsically meaningful
  • Determining when enough is enough
  • How to take the power away from critics
  • The problem with superficial, cultural Christianity
  • We are only worthy through God
  • Why does suffering exist?
  • We need challenges and hardship to refine us
  • Sometimes “self-help” isn’t enough
  • Always moving forward
  • We need to stop thinking about ourselves first
