Am I the only one who isn’t crazy?! Sometimes it feels that way in the insane world we live in but there are millions of men who feel the same as we look around at what’s going on in society from gender ideology, to skirmishes and wars in distant countries, to domestic civil unrest, and everywhere in between.

Today, I’m joined by repeat guest, Zuby, as he’s one of those men speaking sanity into culture today. We talk about everything from finding life’s mission and purpose, to the dangers of AI, how the “crisis of meaning,” is a very dangerous threat, the pitfalls of “credentialism,” why learning to promote yourself is a virtuous endeavor, and walking the line between caring what some people think, but not everyone.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Reaching 10 million people
  • Reaching a younger demographic
  • Most people are at least trying to be good
  • Concerns about losing jobs to AI
  • Faking anything with AI
  • Need for personal interaction
  • Kids falling behind during COVID
  • Finding new ways to reach people
  • Overcoming the aversion to promoting yourself
  • Be intentional about who’s opinion you care about

There is so much to get distracted by these days. With all of our duties, responsibilities, and obligations, it’s easy to get lost in trivial and meaningless activities and pursuits. But when we learn to eliminate and remove the distractions, we free ourselves to find something truly meaningful to obtain.

My guest today is a master at doing just that. His name is Rudy Reyes. He is a former Marine Recon, author of his book, Hero Living, and host of the FOX hit show, Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test. Today, we talk about the power of a mission, developing the “executive” mindset, the strength of the inner story you tell yourself, how, when, and why to compartmentalize emotion, and going deep on pursuits that matter.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Staying on course when everything and everyone is trying to pull you off
  • Bodyweight workouts
  • Behind the scenes of Special Forces: Worlds Toughest Test
  • Our country needs to be reminded of patriotism and old world values

All of us are interested in finding meaning, purpose, and significance in our lives. And, yet, that all seems to be so elusive for so many. Why is it that some men seem to find their passions early on in life while others seemingly struggle for decades (if not their entire lives) to find the satisfaction they so desperately crave?

My guest today, Jim Shockey, is a man who knows the answer. For decades, he’s followed his passions from journalism, becoming a world-class athlete, building an empire as the “First-Family of Hunting,” and now best-selling novelist. Today, Jim and I talk about dealing with events outside of our control, why a man must have a vision he’s working towards, the concept of self-worth and earned respect, the humility and strength of dealing with loss, and the true meaning of legacy…and how to create it.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Getting started in hunting content creation
  • Recognition should be a byproduct, not the goal
  • It doesn’t matter what you accomplish, it maters what people remember your for
  • Be patient and find your soulmate
  • Sticking with a long term vision
  • Live your life, then write a book
  • Bringing two worlds together

So many of us, as men, are operating from a position of scarcity. We’ve wired our brains over decades to constantly crave newer, better, more. Ironically, “more” doesn’t always enhance and enrich our lives. In fact, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that the quest for better actually makes us less happy and less fulfilled.

My guest today is Michael Easter, author of The Comfort Crisis and his latest book, Scarcity Brain. Today, Michael and I cover why we constantly crave more, the dangers inherent in social media, parameters to consider when looking for abundance in our lives, how to strike the balance between contentment with ambition, and how to finally conquer our scarcity brains.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Balancing contentment and ambition
  • Recognizing and avoiding overindulgence
  • Ways to make your phone less stimulating
  • Buy gear, not stuff
  • Too much clutter impacts productivity
  • Finding gratification in the process
  • Leaning into a higher purpose
  • Learning from hard times

Every single one of us has a story. We all have a past. And, too many of us live in what we’ve done in the past rather than use it as fuel to propel us into the future. One of the great comeback stories that you may be somewhat familiar with is Phil Robertson’s (from Duck Dynasty) story of perseverance, overcoming extreme hardship, and the path to redemption.

His son and co-star of Duck Dynasty, Willie Robertson, is here to talk with me today about his father’s story of redemption, their new movie, The Blind, why it’s never too late to write the next chapter of your life, digging out of the depths of despair, and overcoming the guilt of past behavior.

Anxiousness, depression, suicide. These are all growing trends with men. And, it’s unfortunate because, with all we know about men’s health (physical, mental, and emotional), why is it that so many of us seem to be struggling now more than ever? Isolation, loneliness, loss of ambition, lack of clarity and goals all contribute to the epidemic that seems to be plaguing so many men.

It doesn’t have to be this way. And, my good friend and author of Building a Non-Anxious Life, John Delony, is here today to tell us how to make it so. We talk about burnout, stress, and numbing behavior, unpacking what value you truly add to the people you care about, how to apply these principles in reality (and practically), why we don’t have “maps” for every situation we encounter and what to do about it, and overcoming a past of extreme guilt and shame for past behavior.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Life is meant to have ups and downs
  • Defining anxiety
  • Do you need a chip on your shoulder to be successful?
  • Sometimes you need to slow down
  • Drawbacks of using achievement as a drug
  • Uncovering hidden value
  • Find your purpose by showing up
  • Curiosity is underrated
  • Knowing the right map to follow in life
  • Your body is always looking for red flags
