Episode - 018: Dealing with Rejection - How a man can work through it in a healthy way

If you find yourself feeling rejected I know exactly where you are and have been through this many times. This article is aimed at showing men how to step through this in a healthy way and to grow and learn from it.

I’m not perfect as I have clearly pointed out, but I do understand this.

  • It stinks to be turned down for promotions

  • It stinks to be ostracized by your peers

  • It stinks to be let down and rejected

When dealing with rejection, it’s easy to become bitter and bury yourself deeper into despair by assuming that people are rejecting you based on something that you are doing, or by their behavior. This isn’t always true, and our assumptions or observations can be way off.

There is a method that you can use when faced with this type of situation:

  • Self Reflection

  • Confront

  • Create Distance & focus on something else

  • Resolve

Take a listen as we walk through these in detail.

Episode - 017: The Comparison Trap


In order to be the man you want to be, you have to know who that is. Here are some very practical steps on how to figure that out.

  • Make a list of the characteristics that you want as a man

  • Seek Wisdom (Read one Proverb every day for a month, this will tell you how to live daily)

  • Begin a workout Program (this is going to help you in all areas)

  • Get a mentor, coach or accountability partner (this person needs to be someone that is going to help you but not coddle you)

  • Whenever you find yourself desiring something or wanting something, write it down, and come back to it later...or don't. See if the desire just goes away. As you resist, you will grow stronger.

What's the number one thing that most guys ask each-other when they first meet?

"So, what do you do?"

This question can make a man shake in his boots, especially if he is already uncomfortable with his masculinity and how he provides for his family.

In this episode, I talk about one of the biggest things that men do. They compare themselves to other men,

I talk about who you should really be comparing yourself to and give some practical tips on how to break the habit.

Episode - 015: Intentional Preparation - How to Start your Day Before it Begins


I believe that preparation is essential for success.

You have to know where you are going, and you have to do everything you can to ensure that you get there.

Preparation for something is almost always more important than the thing itself.

Especially when it comes to physical exercise.

Most people quit a workout program before they even have time to give it a chance. As you know if you have read anything about New Years resolutions, only around 8% of people actually see them through to completion.

Why do you think that is?

Everything that you want in life is going to take intentional preparation.

Stuff doesn't just magically happen or take care of itself.

If you want to succeed and start your days off right, then you need to remember these 3 things:

  • Get a Journal, and use it.

  • Set Your Clothes out the night before

  • Know exactly what your workout is going to be the night before
