True Believer | JACK CARR
01:20:57

Gents, today I am joined by my friend and repeat guest, Jack Carr. There are just certain people that when you meet them, there seems to be a connection like you’ve been friends for a very long time.

I’m honored that Jack is joining me again to talk about the second installment of his thriller series, True Believer. But we talk about a whole lot more than just that. We dive into the pros and cons of social media, falling into comparison with others, learning to be a professional in all your endeavors, the trap of identifying with your occupation, and a whole lot more.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Building a readership
  • Defending the tribe
  • The art of storytelling
  • Finding your next mission in life
  • Taking guys down-range
  • Making micro adjustments
  • Being professional
  • The hero’s journey
  • Overcoming adversity
  • Trusting your instincts
  • The importance of mentorship
  • Resonating with revenge
  • Weaving in authenticity

JACK CARR

As I mentioned earlier, my friend, Jack Carr is back for round two on the podcast.

If you don’t know who Jack is, he spent 20 years in Navy Special Warfare as an enlisted SEAL sniper to a troop and eventually a unit commander with multiple combat deployments.

Upon retiring from the Navy, Jack went on to establish a very successful writing career (something he always knew he wanted to do after service). In fact, his books are two of the very few fictional books I’ve ever read and I was not able to put them down.

He draws upon his lessons from the military and his extensive training and research to create powerful stories that every man will enjoy reading.

I hope you enjoy listening in on our conversation as much as I enjoyed having it.

LEGACY

I’ve got to bring your attention to something I haven’t talked about for a little while and that is our ORDER OF MAN LEGACY EXPERIENCE.

We’ve just released the dates and registration for our next father/son experience which will talk place in Central Maine on June 11th-14th 2020. This is an experience designed to forge a deeper bond between you and your son and give you the tools and guidance you’ll need to usher your boy into manhood.

We’ve only done two events of these in the past and this will be the first one held on our new property in Maine. After doing about a dozen different events, I can tell you that the LEGACY EXPERIENCE is, by far, my favorite event to host.

Head to www.orderofman.com/legacy to get more information, watch a video recap from our last event, and get registered. Do it quickly because we only have 16 spots remaining. That is it! Again, www.orderofman.com/legacy.

Above and Beyond the Call of Duty with Medal of Honor Recipient, KYLE CARPENTER
02:00:46

What causes one man to jump on a grenade to save a fellow Marine when most of us would run the other way? That’s exactly what my guest today, Kyle Carpenter, did when attacked by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2010. Through his actions, he was awarded the Medal of Honor as the youngest living Medal of Honor recipient.

Today, Kyle and I talk about the days leading up to his heroic action, what exactly happened, his injuries sustained, his road to recovery, and his evolution as a human being since. We also cover his new book, You Are Worth It: Building a Life Worth Fighting For.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Living life one day at a time
  • Joining the Marines 
  • Always looking for a challenge
  • Searching for the right path
  • Preparing for the unknown
  • Valuing those around you
  • Learning from others
  • Life after boot camp 
  • Helping the oppressed 
  • Getting mission-ready
  • Surrounded by Taliban 
  • Accepting your fate 
  • A level of detachment 
  • Another day in Afganistan
  • Going through rehabilitation 
  • A life well lived
  • Living a bonus round

KYLE CARPENTER

Gentlemen, today I have the honor of introducing you to my friend and the youngest ever living Medal of Honor recipient, Kyle Carpenter.

Kyle joined the Marine Corps at 19 and not long after was deployed with the 1st Marine Division to Afghanistan where he threw himself on a grenade to save a fellow Marine.

This man is one of the most humble people that I know and I’m inspired by his experience, his life, and who is he as a human being.

Before we get into the conversation, I’m going to read you his Medal of Honor Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as an Automatic Rifleman with Company F, 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 1, 1st Marine Division (Forward), I Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward), in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on 21 November 2010. Lance Corporal Carpenter was a member of a platoon-sized coalition force, comprised of two reinforced Marine rifle squads partnered with an Afghan National Army squad. The platoon had established Patrol Base Dakota two days earlier in a small village in the Marjah District in order to disrupt enemy activity and provide security for the local Afghan population. Lance Corporal Carpenter and a fellow Marine were manning a rooftop security position on the perimeter of Patrol Base Dakota when the enemy initiated a daylight attack with hand grenades, one of which landed inside their sandbagged position. Without hesitation and with complete disregard for his own safety, Lance Corporal Carpenter moved toward the grenade in an attempt to shield his fellow Marine from the deadly blast. When the grenade detonated, his body absorbed the brunt of the blast, severely wounding him, but saving the life of his fellow Marine. By his undaunted courage, bold fighting spirit, and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of almost certain death, Lance Corporal Carpenter reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.

MAINE EVENT

Many of you already know that a couple of months ago we held our first-ever Maine Event. It was such a huge success, that I wanted to open it up again as soon as possible.

So, with plenty of notice, we marked our calendars for May 29-31, 2020. Those initial seats have been sold out but we feel like we can facilitate a few more men so we’ve opened up 20 more spots – that’s it.

This is a 2 ½ day event designed to help you forge new bonds with men on the same path as you and give you the tools and framework to accomplish more in a 90-day period that you have potential in your entire life.

If you want to lock in one of the 20 remaining spots, head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent today, watch the video recap of our last event, and get registered quickly. I hope to see you there. Again, go to www.orderofman.com/maineevent.

Stillness is the Key | RYAN HOLIDAY
01:08:26

We live in a climate where we are inundated with messages, opportunities, and entertainment. We’ve demanded and created a culture where we are never bored, never quiet, and never satisfied. But what if that noise was one of the largest barriers to satisfaction and fulfillment in our lives?

Today, I am joined by repeat guest, Ryan Holiday, to talk about his new book, Stillness is the Key. We cover why stillness is the key to mastery, freedom, happiness, and tranquility. We also do a deeper dive into the power of saying, “no,” how to conquer anger, finding confidence but avoiding ego, and how stillness truly is the key.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A better way of living
  • It’s all about the present 
  • Needing stillness in your life
  • The pre-occupied mind
  • Getting into the zone
  • Taking control of your environment 
  • How to model stillness
  • Misery in complete freedom
  • Learning to say no
  • Applying filters to life  
  • Choosing meaningfulness
  • Making conscience decisions
  • Giving up destructive control
  • Focusing on the controllable 
  • How to conquer anger 

RYAN HOLIDAY

My guest today is Ryan Holiday. You’ve heard him on this podcast before and many of you likely already know who he is and have read his books, Ego is the Enemy, The Obstacle is the Way, and The Daily Stoic.

He is someone I consider to be a great thinker and many of his ideas and works have helped me find the philosophy of Stoicism and discover more satisfaction and fulfillment in my life.

I’m honored to have Ryan back on the podcast to talk about the concept of stillness. This is one area I really struggle with so reading his new book and, of course, having this conversation proved to be transformative for me. I know it will be for you too.

Animal Encounters | COYOTE PETERSON
53:54

I haven’t always been as appreciative of the wild, nature, and wildlife as I am now. With me getting involved in hunting over the past several years, I’ve been more intimately connected to the outdoors than I ever have.

So, when Coyote Peterson’s team reached out, I knew it would make for an interesting discussion (And, if you have children, they’re really going to like this one). Today, we talk about nature, encouraging youth to get involved in the wild, the unintended consequences of excessive human interaction with nature, where Coyote and I disagree on hunting, and, ultimately, some of his craziest animal encounters.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Introducing animals to the digital space
  • A lasting legacy 
  • Learning about the world
  • Differentiating yourself 
  • Interacting with nature 
  • Hunting for survival
  • Conservation efforts
  • Being in-tune with animals 
  • Creating your own experiences 
  • Encouraging kids to read
  • The Sting Pain Index
  • Inspiring future generations 

COYOTE PETERSON

Nathaniel “Coyote” Peterson is a wildlife educator and the host of the Brave Wilderness YouTube channel with nearly 15,000,000 subscribers.


I was first introduced to Coyote by my two oldest sons while they were on YouTube and asked me to come watch this “crazy guy who intentionally gets stung and bit by animals.”

He’s also the author of 4 books, the host of a new Animal Planet television show set to be aired early next year, and the recipient of an Emmy for one of his series’ called, Breaking Trail.

This one is a little different than you might be used to on the Order of Man podcast but if you’re interested in hearing our intelligent disagreement/discussion about hunting and, if you have children, you’re definitely going to want to tune in.

I hope you enjoy my podcast with the fascinating and interesting Coyote Peterson.

An Introduction to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu | ANDRE “DEDECO” ALMEIDA
01:30:05

As many of you know, I’ve immersed myself in training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu over the past 3-4 months and, although, I’m only getting started on this path, I can see how beneficial and valuable it is to train in martial arts.

Today, I have the honor of talking with André Almeida (he simply goes by “Dedeco”), a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blackbelt who has been practicing for over 30 years. We talk about his rocky past in Brazil, how Jiu-Jitsu saved his life, what to look for when getting started on your own path, and the mindset needed to be a successful Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Watching from the sideline
  • Experiencing variances in life
  • Learning opportunities 
  • Growing up in Rio de Janeiro
  • Building self-confidence 
  • First-class mentorship 
  • Relocating to America 
  • How to get involved in Jiu-jitsu
  • Helping others grow
  • The importance of lineage
  • Basic starting points for beginners
  • Learning through vulnerability 
  • The power of a small arsenal 
  • Developing your style

ANDRE “DEDECO” ALMEIDA

Today, I have the honor of introducing you to my friend, Dedeco. Dedeco and I met last year at Origin’s Immersion Camp and since then, he’s become a friend and a bit of a mentor (although mostly online via social media). And, with as many questions as I’ve received about me starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I can’t think of anyone better to talk with that him.

Dedeco has been practicing Jiu-Jitsu for more than 30 years and credits his life to being introduced to the art. He’s a Brazilian National Champion, 3x State Champion, and 2x Pan American medalist.

On top of that, he’s one of the most sincere and genuine people that I know and I can’t wait for you to hear our conversation. I hope you enjoy, gentlemen.

IRON COUNCIL

Most of you know about the Iron Council by now. It’s our exclusive brotherhood designed to give you the tools, resources, and accountability you need to thrive and accomplish your biggest objectives.

This month, we’re talking about being prepared for emergencies and potentially catastrophic events. But more than talking about these things, we’re actively working towards making ourselves more capable husbands, fathers, business owners, and community leaders. That’s why we issue challenges and assignments as tools to bridge the gap between what we know we should be doing and what we’re actually doing.

If you want to band with us and take the leap from knowledge to action and accomplish more in the next 3 months than you potentially have all year, head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Never Quit | JP DINNELL
01:17:44

Quitting has become all too common and all too popular. While I can certainly agree that there may be a point in time where it may be the right course of action, too many men throw in the towel too soon and limit themselves to minimal results in the process. Learning to stick with projects, tasks, and relationships longer than you may normally do opens up all sorts of opportunities reserved for those who show the most perseverance and grit.

Today, I have the opportunity to sit down with former Navy SEAL, JP Dinnell, to talk about his “Never Quit” attitude, where he developed this mentality, qualifiers for staying and quitting, and ultimately how you too can develop the same “Never Quit” mentality.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A lack of accountability
  • Simulating detachment 
  • Learning how to win
  • Leading from high ground 
  • Improving through self-awareness 
  • Taking ownership isn’t enough
  • Having hard conversations 
  • Asking permission to lead 
  • Detach and assess 
  • Loyalty to the core 
  • America’s Mighty Warriors
  • Random acts of kindness 
  • Emotion and empathy 

JP DINNELL

Gents, today I sit down with repeat guest, JP Dinnell.

He is a former Navy SEAL and served with Task Unit Bruiser with Jocko Willink and Leif Babin. Under their command, he served as an elite SEAL sniper in one of the deadliest regions of Iraq in 2006. In fact, his counterpart was Navy SEAL, Chris Kyle.

He also served as a training instructor at Naval Special Warfare Group where he developed special operations urban combat and close-quarter training to better prepare SEAL units for the battlefield.

JP has become a friend, a mentor, and someone I’m motivated and inspired by daily.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, I know we’re knee-deep in a great conversation but let me hit the pause button to tell you about a resource you’re really going to want to know about if you’re ready to take your life to the next level.

It’s called the Iron Council and inside, you’ll band with 500+ like-minded, high-achieving men who will help you identify and complete your life’s biggest objectives. Another benefit that I haven’t talked about a whole lot is that there are hundreds of experts inside the Council that range from leadership development, fitness and strength, hunting and other hobbies, and emergency response and preparation, to name a few.

If you’re ready to band with us and tap into these resources, learn more and join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

JOCKO WILLINK | Leadership Strategy and Tactics
01:27:56

I don’t care in what capacity you’re showing up in life – you are a leader. And, whether you realize it or not, you are having an influence on those around you. Whether you’re trying to secure a job promotion, lead your team and co-workers to success, manage a home, or get their kids to do their chores, your ability to learn and implement the strategies Jocko and I share today are critical.

Jocko Willink (a man who needs no introduction) and I sit down face to face to discuss what it means to be a leader, considerations when raising kids right, striking the balance between opposing leadership methods (dichotomies), and very specific leadership strategies and tactics. And, if all that isn’t enough, we talk a little bit about archery and beards.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Origin Emersion Camp
  • Mental fortitude 
  • Mechanical drills
  • The evolution of Echelon Front
  • Writing a best seller
  • Leadership for kids 
  • A first-class archery experience 
  • A roll of the dice
  • The best of the best 
  • Feeling like an imposter 
  • Overcoming weakness 
  • Detaching from a bad plan
  • How to handle ultimatums 
  • Correcting bad behavior 
  • The reality of leadership

JOCKO WILLINK

My guest today is a man who has now been on the podcast on four separate occasions and someone who does not, for most of you listening, need an introduction. His name is Jocko Willink and he served as the Navy SEAL Commander for the most highly-decorated special forces unit of the Iraq war.

And, since leaving the military has gone on to lead on of the most recognizable and effective leadership companies in the world with his brother-in-arms, Leif Babin, Echelon Front.

On top of all of that, he’s written 8 books with his most recent being Leadership Strategy and tactics Field Manual (which we’ll be discussing today). His other books include Extreme Ownership, Dichotomy of Leadership, and the Way of the Warrior Kid series, among others.

I’m honored to call this man a friend and am proud to be able to share our conversation with you today.

IRON COUNCIL

Obviously, we’ve been talking all about leadership today on the podcast. I want to offer you an additional resource if you’re looking to up your leadership effectiveness.

It’s called the Iron Council and it’s a brotherhood of men working together to achieve maximum results in our lives. And, a lot of what we discuss is centered around the third pillar of masculinity, Preside, which is synonymous with leadership.

Most of the institutions that have served men and offered a place for them to band together have been on the decline and while all of that is going away, the Order of Man and the Iron Council is rising up instead. We’re dedicated to giving you the tools, resources, brotherhood, camaraderie, and accountability to step fully into that man you have a desire to become.

PAT MCNAMARA | Make Yourself a Sentinel
55:12

Too many men are reliant on others to save them when it all hits the fan. And, while there may be someone there to rescue you in your greatest time of need, it’s critical that we all learn to take care of and protect ourselves.

That’s why I wanted to have Pat McNamara join me on the podcast. As a 22-year military veteran and someone who has dedicated his life to making himself more capable in the most dire times, he is uniquely qualified to talk about situational awareness, staying on the alert, being prepared but not paranoid, and making yourself a sentinel

My guest today is a man who needs no introduction. His name is Pat McNamara and he is one of the baddest men on the planet.

As I mentioned earlier, he is a 22-year military veteran and has served in a myriad of special operations units. Through his military service, he began to develop his own training methodology combining safety, continuous critical thinking, and effectiveness.

In addition to that, he is an author of Tactical Application and Practical Shooting and Sentinel. Today, he joins me to talk about making yourself a more capable protector.

MAINE EVENT

Gentlemen, we had such a huge success with the inaugural Order of Man Maine Event that we decided to get you the dates as soon as possible for the next one.

It’s going to be held in Maine on May 29-31st, 2020. I know that’s a ways away but I wanted to give you plenty of notice to secure your spot to an event that has the ability to transform the way you look at your life as a man.

The institutions we once used to band with other men are dwindling and being dismantled. And, that’s why it’s critical you find new and improved ways of banding with men who are on the same path as you. And, that’s exactly what you’re doing to get when you join us for 2 ½ days of brotherhood, camaraderie, and instruction.

How to Become a High-Performing Father | ALEC LACE
56:02

Fatherhood is one of the noblest, exciting, and rewarding callings a man can step into. It’s also one of the absolute hardest. Unfortunately, there is no manual for becoming a great father, like you have a desire to be. Most of it is trial and error. But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn extremely effective tactics and strategies from men on the same path.

My guest today is Alec Lace. He is the founder of First-class Fatherhood where he has interviewed the some of the highest performing fathers in the world: Tom Brady, Dion Sanders, Mike Ritland, Ed Mylett, and so many more. Today, we talk about managing your time more effectively, how to engage your children in more meaningful discussions, the viability of homeschooling, and how to become a high-performing father.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The new-father mindset
  • Struggles of being a father
  • Tools to eliminate guilt
  • Overcoming difficult times
  • Shifting your mindset
  • Hitting rock-bottom
  • Taking ownership of your life
  • Channeling your obsessions
  • Maximum use of time
  • Getting beyond your ego
  • Being a single dad
  • The never quit mentality

ALEC LACE

As I mentioned previously, my guest today is Alec Lace. He is the founder of First Class Fatherhood (I’m a previous guest on his podcast).

He is an absolutely inspiring human being in that he’s overcome some tremendous odds and personal adversity to become the type of father a lot of us hope to become. He’s also interviewed some absolutely incredible fathers like Tom Brady, Dion Sanders, Kurt Warner, Dean Cain, Rob O’Neil, and so many more.

Today, he’s here to talk with us about what makes for a powerful father, how we can step up our game with our kids, overcoming our own personal demons, and simply being a better father.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, I invite you to take a look at what our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council has to offer. I talk with way too many men who are lost without direction, clarity, and purpose.

I get it. It’s hard to find your way in the society in which we live. Many of you were fatherless growing up. Many of you are stuck in dead-end jobs you hate. Many of you are a shell of the man you once were or have the desire to become.

I firmly believe that having a band of brothers to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you on the path you’re meant to walk is one of the most powerful resources at your disposal. And, that’s exactly what you’ll find inside the Iron Council – men working together on themselves and holding each other accountable. It’s not flashy. Sometimes, it’s not all that exciting. But it gets the job done and that’s exactly why it’s so effective.

Forging Underground Strength | ZACH EVEN-ESH
01:22:11

Getting Strong is undoubtedly something the overwhelming majority of men want to do. But with so much information out there and with our days stacked to the brim, it’s hard to know what to do and how to find the time to do it.

Today, I am joined by my friend and long-time strong man to talk about strength of the body and of the mind, both inside and outside the gym. We talk about forging mental resilience, having the right attitude to attack life, how and why we need to teach our children toughness, and how to forge your way to underground strength.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Growing up working as a kid
  • Getting punched in the face
  • A lack of hardship
  • How to fall in love with hard work
  • Going beyond the 9 to 5
  • Creating your new normal
  • Building momentum
  • Taking pride in your abilities
  • Finding the right headspace
  • Blending the mind and body
  • Becoming less attached
  • Doing more with less

ZACH EVEN-ESH

Gents, I can’t tell you how excited I am to share my conversation with Zach Even-Esh.

I was fortunate enough to have him at our home and spend some time training physically and showing him around Maine. If you don’t already know, Zach, he is a long-time strong man, a strength and conditioning coach, and the founder of The Underground Strength Gym.

He has a passion for simplifying strength and conditioning and mentoring and preparing youth for life through the gym. We talk about a lot today and I think you’re going to enjoy this conversation as we get much deeper than simply getting strong.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, if you’re not already familiar, let me introduce you to the Iron Council. The Iron Council is a digital band of brothers.

That sounds really good but what does that even mean? It means that when you band with us, you’ll be tapping into the power of 500+ other men who have high ambitions and are doing everything they can to become more effective husbands, fathers, business owners, and community leaders.

Too many men go at it alone. It doesn’t make you weak to band with other men. It makes you stronger because you’ll be working with men who have your back and will ensure you step into the man you’re capable of becoming.

Drastically Improve Your Decision-Making | DAVID MELTZER
01:07:29

Each of us is faced with thousands of decisions on a daily basis. You’re ability to make the right decisions spell the difference between failure and success for you, your family, your clients, your business, and your community. Unfortunately, with all the variables to take into consideration, it’s hard to know which decisions are best.

That’s why I’m looking forward to getting this conversation to you today. My guest is David Meltzer and he is the CEO of one of the world’s leading sports and entertainment marketing agencies. Today, we go to the root of making choices, why assumptions kill success, the power of harnessing fear, and how to improve your game-time decision making.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Rags to riches
  • How critical decisions are made
  • Fear-based consciousness  
  • Ego-based consciousness  
  • Making assumptions
  • The pragmatic truth
  • Having an attitude of faith
  • Disciplining the sub-conscience 
  • Doing things consistently 
  • Choosing to be happy
  • Living in the truth
  • Shifting your energy 
  • Accessing what you want
  • How to substitute fear
  • Coming from a place of love
  • Truth consciousness
  • Improving your vibration  

DAVID MELTZER

As I mentioned earlier, my guest is David Meltzer and he is the CEO of Sports 1 Marketing, a top 10 keynote speaker, an award-winning humanitarian, and a best-selling author.

He has over 25 years of experience in the legal, technology, sports, and entertainment fields, and needless to say, is an expert in high-stakes, high-pressure decision-making situations.

He is business partners with Hall of Fame Quarterback, Warren Moon, and inspired movies such as Jerry Maquire, Any Given Sunday, and For Love of the Game.

And, as you’ll hear in our conversation today, he is an extremely deep thinker and I know you’ll enjoy how deep we go in this podcast on how to position yourself to make better choices and decisions.

IRON COUNCIL

With all that we’ve had going on over the past couple of months with the move and our upcoming event this weekend, you haven’t heard me talk about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council for a bit.

It seems to me most men have lost their ability to band with other like-minded men who are going to push, motivate, and inspire them to do and be more in their lives. And, that’s exactly what we’re all about inside the Iron Council.

When you band with us, you’re going to get a monthly assignment (this month is hyper-focused on physical fitness), weekly challenges to push you along the way, access to the Foundry (our communication platform), and the camaraderie and accountability that comes when you band with other high-achieving men.

Service Above Self | MAT BEST
01:09:31

Today, I sit down with a fascinating man. His name is Mat Best and many of you know from his viral videos for Black Rifle Coffee Company. But what you may not know is how he views his military service as an Army Ranger with five combat tours.

During our conversation, we talked about how he views his service, his continual support of military veterans, how he founded his mission after the military, where he stumbled along the way, and how he helped turn a simple coffee company into a household name.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS 

  • Mission-oriented 
  • Defining yourself
  • Acts of heroism 
  • Defusing threats 
  • Controlled violence 
  • How to out-grit people 
  • Being uncomfortable 
  • Developing core-competencies 
  • Mission first
  • Manageable disagreements 
  • Creating a community 
  • The land of opportunity 
  • The need for meaningful conflict 
  • Owning responsibility 

 

MAT BEST

As I stated earlier, my guest today is someone most of you are probably familiar with. His name is Mat Best and he is a former Army Ranger and the co-founder of Black Rifle Coffee company along with several other companies he founded since leaving the military.

He and I had the opportunity to sit down at Total Archery Challenge a couple of weeks ago in Park City to talk about his military service, how to lead an incredible organization in Black Rifle Coffee Company, and his new book, Thank You For My Service.

Gents, I think you’re going to enjoy this one as you might see a side of Mat you haven’t seen before.

ORIGIN

If you’re not familiar with Origin Maine, I encourage you to get familiar with them as soon as you can. Whether or not you’re into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or not is irrelevant as they do so much more than make gi’s and rashguards.

Their goal is to restore American Manufacturing and with their new denim line, boot line, and Jocko Supplements, they are on the path to doing just that.

I personally use their supplements, specifically, their Super Krill, Joint Warfare (for the aching joints since ramping up Jiu-Jitsu), Molk, and their new product, a cognitive enhancement called Discipline Go.

If you’re looking to add some supplements to your nutritional and exercise lineup, check out Jocko’s products by Origin Maine and, when you do, use the code “order” at checkout to get a 10% discount. Head to www.originmaine.com and, again, use the code, “order” at checkout.

How to Stand Out as a Man Among Men | BERT SORIN
01:28:26

It comes as no surprise that most men have a desire to stand out from the pack as a man of credibility and authority. I call it influence and, the more of it you have with others, the more effective and successful you will be in your life.

Today, I am joined by my friend, Bert Sorin, to talk about how to stand out as the man. He’s a man I’ve respected immensely since I met him a little over a year ago and someone who stands out as the type of man I’m referring. We get into the “x-factor,” adding value in all of your interactions, matching your actions with your words, and how to stand out as a man among men.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Defining the X-Factor
  • Finding relevance
  • Adding value to your tribe
  • Developing social skills
  • Having the right motives
  • Protecting your “magic” 
  • Letting go of expectations 
  • Watching the tide come in
  • Scaling forward 
  • Your value proposition 
  • Dissociating from your activities 
  • Building your fortress
  • Playing to win 

BERT SORIN

Gents, today I am joined by repeat guest and friend, Bert Sorin.

Bert is the President and CEO of Sorinex. I know you’ve been hearing me talk about them for some time now since I was introduced to him and Sorinex about this time last year.

Bert is a former Division 1 Track and Field All-American and an Olympics Trial athlete. And, what he learned in sports, he has now translated to running this incredible leader in strength and exercise equipment.

And, it’s not only about their equipment. I had the privilege of attending their annual event, SummerStrong, and I can tell you that the culture they’ve created within the organization and movement is a sight to behold. And, because of that, I thought Bert and I needed to sit down for round 2 to talk about standing out. Enjoy.

MAINE EVENT

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is something along the lines of “How do I get my life back on track?” I wish there was an easy answer. There isn’t. But, there is a simple one.

It’s called the Battle Plan and it’s a system I’ve been developing over 10 years to take control of my health, relationships, bank account, this movement, and my life in general.

If you’ve been listening to the podcast over the past month, you’ve heard me talk about the Order of Man Maine event (held August 10th-11th). Among the like-minded men you’ll meet, the challenges we’ll participate in, and the activities we have planned, you’ll be working on your own Battle Plan to accomplish more in the next 90 days than you potentially have all year.

If you know you’re meant for more but haven’t found the systems and tools to maximize your potential, join us August 10th-11th in Maine for an event designed to give you the network and framework to take complete sovereignty over your life.

Defeating the Odds | NICK SANTONASTASSO
01:06:56

All of us are dealt a hand, some harder than others. But as my guest today can attest, it’s not the hand we’re dealt that matters, it’s how we play it.

Today’s conversation is with Nick Santonastasso (who many of you are already probably aware of). He is a bodybuilder, entrepreneur, adventurer, and highly-sought-after public speaker. And, he was born with a debilitating medical condition which left him legless and missing one arm. Today, we talk about overcoming the victim mentality, how to develop confidence, how to view difficult circumstances as a gift, and how to defeat the odds.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Being a man of action
  • Giving without expectations 
  • Putting your ego to the side
  • Using the right vocabulary 
  • Reframing a victim mentality 
  • Filtering out the wrong people
  • How to build confidence 
  • Defining your own success
  • Becoming the CEO of your life
  • How to overcome limiting beliefs
  • Facing objective reality 
  • Progress within yourself 
  • Surrendering your ego
  • Reflecting on your wins
  • Appreciating pain
  • Growing through curiosity 

NICK SANTONASTASSO

As I mentioned earlier, my guest today is Nick Santonastasso. He has got to be one of the most inspiring people that I know and, if you’re familiar with him, I think you would likely agree.

He was born with a rare medical condition (he’s only one of 12 people born with it and 8 of them are dead). It’s called Hanhart Syndrom and it kept him from developing his legs and one of his arms.

But none of that has stopped him. In fact, if anything, it’s propelled him forward as he’s taken what would both literally and figuratively cripple most and turned it into something extremely empowering for him and the millions he inspires.

He’s tried it all from bowling to wrestling to bodybuilding and now, he’s speaking up as one of the most sought-after public speakers in the world. And, once you listen to this podcast, I think you’ll know why.

ORDER OF MAN MAINE EVENT

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is something along the lines of “How do I get my life back on track?” I wish there was an easy answer. There isn’t. But, there is a simple one.

Many of us, as men, have ambitions to leave a legacy. What that legacy looks like varies from man to man but ultimately, we all have a desire to leave this world better than when we got here. And, legacy is something my guest, his father, and his father’s father know how to create.

ADAM WEATHERBY

Today,  I’m joined by my friend and the President of Weatherby, Adam Weatherby. I met Adam a couple of years ago through mutual friends at MTNOPS and, in getting to know him, and hearing more about the history of Weatherby and his vision for, I knew we needed to sit down for a conversation.

Adam started working at Weatherby more than 20 years ago in tech. support, warranty service, and sales and marketing before leaving after four years to pursue his ambitions to become a pastor. He returned to Weatherby not too long ago and was named President in 2017.

I’m inspired by his vision, direction, and leadership with his organization and I think you guys are going to get a glimpse into what it takes to lead a generational business.

Risk, Resilience, and Raising Kids | ANDY STUMPF
01:16:49

It seems to me the more that I have conversations on this podcast, the more questions I have rather than the answers I’ve been seeking. But it’s been said that the quality of your life will be determined by the quality of the questions you ask. So, when I have an opportunity to sit down with my friend, Andy Stumpf, to ask some of life’s challenging questions, it’s always a great discussion.

Today, we talk about so many different topics like taking risks (which we’ve both done with moving our families), developing resilience in our lives, and the never-ending challenges that come with raising kids.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Managing uncertainty 
  • Seeking adventure 
  • Navigating risk
  • Mental toughness
  • Guiding your children  
  • Voluntary hardships 
  • Parental balance
  • Toxic masculinity 
  • Calibration  
  • Frank conversation 
  • Consequences of bad decisions 
  • Corporate endorsements 
  • The power of social media 
  • Politics 
  • Doing more with less 

ANDY STUMPF

My guest today is my friend, Andy Stumpf. I heard he was making a trip to Maine about a week after I got here so I reached out and scheduled a conversation on this podcast. We had a day of archery, Jiu-Jitsu, a podcast session, and finished it off with a lobster bake with our friends, Pete Roberts, and Brian Littlefield.

If you don’t know who Andy Stumpf is, he is a retired Navy SEAL, avid bow hunter, and a base jumping, wingsuit flying mad man. But, in addition to that, he’s one of the most level-headed men that I know. I think a lot of that has been developed to even out his quest for adventure.

You’re going to enjoy this one as it’s not so much of an interview but two men talking about the challenges and struggles that are part of life.

MAINE EVENT

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that we’ve got our Order of Man Maine event taking place on August 10-11, 2019, with an exclusive Iron Council dinner on the 9th.

Our entire goal for the event is to teach you the framework for success in your health, wealth, relationships, and life and, of course, introduce you to a network of men who are all achieving big things in their lives.

We’ve been making plans for the event on my property and to say that I’m extremely excited about what we’re putting together is a huge understatement. If you’re interested in learning more and locking in a seat at the table, head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent.

Again, that’s www.orderofman.com/maineevent.

But do it quickly as we only have 25 spots remaining.

Finding a Way to Forgive | ANDREW O'BRIEN
01:02:05

Someone in your life has likely wronged you in some way. Whether or not you’ve learned to forgive that individual is another question. I think we all know that learning to forgive others is a liberating practice, but that’s easier said than done.

Today, I am joined by Andrew O’Brien to talk about his quest for forgiveness. I don’t want to ruin the conversation for you, but his mother made national news when she killed Andrew’s stepfather, asked him to cover it up, and attempted to pin it on his brother. We cover why forgiveness is crucial for men, how to take the first steps, elements to include on the “forgiveness journey,” and finally finding a way to forgive.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Walking to freedom
  • Emotional trauma
  • Anger and resentment
  • Childhood memories
  • A newfound appreciation
  • Estranged brothers
  • Holding on to animosity
  • The ultimate objective
  • Always pleasing others
  • Finding happiness in the wrong places
  • Public criticism
  • Emotional abuse
  • Bigger ambitions
  • Growing up as a victim
  • Re-engineering forgiveness

ANDREW O’BRIEN

Today I am joined by my friend, Andrew O’Brien. Andrew and I have been friends for a couple of years, but he recently told me about a journey to forgive that he has decided to take (In fact, he begins his official journey tomorrow as of the release of this podcast).

Also, as he shared part of his story with me, I couldn’t help but think how powerful this would be for the men of the Order. I know forgiveness is an issue that many men in the Facebook Group and the Iron Council bring up.

You don’t need to take notes or anything on this conversation, but please listen to Andrew’s incredible story about his mother and his path to forgiving her. I hope his discussion helps you in some way.

MAINE EVENT

Gents, I’m finally able to give you all the details you need to get up here for a meetup/event/experience on our new property in Maine. I’ve been thinking about this for the last six months (since I knew we were moving here) and I’m stoked to get you here.

It’s going to be held August 10 – 11, 2019 (and an exclusive Iron Council dinner on the 9th) and over the course of two days, I’m going to give you access to the framework and network you need to thrive in your life.

We’ll have activities designed to push and test you, presentations in each of the four quadrants we cover here in Order of Man, and opportunities to band with other like-minded men who want to achieve big things in their lives as well.

We only have 30 spots remaining so, head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent to secure your spot.

Live by a Code | BRADY “TOTANKA” CERVANTES
01:23:44

Whether he knows it or not, every man lives by a code. But without intentionality about what that code is, it’s easy to get lost in a world filled with chaos, clutter, and distraction. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to identify the code you want to live by and consistently measure up to it.

That’s why I wanted to have a conversation with my guest today, Brady “Totanka” Cervantes. He is a former Marine Corps sniper and, more recently a professional bull rider. Today, we talk about his experience as a sniper, how it translates to civilian life, the struggles of transitioning in life, how to clear your head in chaos, and how to establish and live by a code.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Learning perspective as a young boy
  • Finding middle ground
  • Seeking guidance from the right source
  • The importance of parental guidance
  • Living out of a truck
  • Life in the Marine Corp.
  • The impact of TBI
  • Understanding the consequences
  • Pushing past fear
  • The mental game
  • Becoming legendary
  • A level of discipline
  • One thing at a time
  • Overcoming ego
  • Dealing with your own battle

BRADY “TOTANKA” CERVANTES

My guest today is Brady “Totanka” Cervantes.

He spent nearly 10 years in the Marine Corps and, as a Scout Sniper, had several deployments throughout the world, including two deployments to Iraq and two deployments to Afghanistan.

After his military service, he began training as a lead instructor for several tactical training companies, starred in a survival TV show called Kicking & Screaming, and, more recently, riding bulls professionally with the PBR.

I met Brady several months ago at Sorinex’s SummerStrong event and as I got to know him over a couple of days, I was extremely impressed with his clarity, confidence, and level of humility. All of which we talk about in our conversation.

IRON COUNCIL

If you’ve been listening to this podcast for any amount of time, you know a little bit about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council. This is a fraternity of men who are all working together to improve their lives, gain new perspectives, get accountability, and the motivation and tools they need to excel.

This month inside the Iron Council we’re talking about forging and iron-clad mindset, and one of the things we do is bring in guest experts to cover the monthly topic, do some live Q & A with, and learn. On the 28th of this month, June 2019, Commander Mark Divine will be joining our live call to discuss the tools, strategies, and skill-sets of an iron-clad mindset.

So, if you want to learn from the best and band with other men who will hold you to the highest possible standard, join us inside the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

The Power of Thinking Big | PETE ROBERTS & BRIAN LITTLEFIELD

Today’s discussion is with Pete Roberts & Brian Littlefield from Origin Main. These are two men that I highly admire and respect. We talk about thinking big, how too many men seem to be playing it safe, and so much more. Hit me up on Instagram at @ryanmichler and let me know what you thought about the conversation.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Moving stone walls
  • Life’s defining moments
  • Decades of opportunity
  • Taking risks
  • Living without stuff
  • Making a sacrifice
  • Washing off the comfort
  • When is it “big enough”
  • Building emotional equity
  • Earned confidence

IRON COUNCIL

It’s been said that the only thing constant is change. And, if you’re anything like me, change is not easy for you. Even if we know it will be good for us, it seems to me that most men resist change. But if it’s inevitable and, in a lot of ways, constructive, we need to understand how to deal with it and actually embrace change.

That’s why inside of our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, we’re talking all about change and how to harness it for a force of good in our lives and in those we have a responsibility for. We’re going to to be breaking it down weekly with understanding the nature of our relationship with change, how to take action when we are faced with an evolving set of circumstances, and how to effectively lead the people we care about through change.

If you’re ready to learn how to embrace change in your life, have some powerful discussion about it, and be challenged to take deliberate and intentional action toward growing and evolving, I invite you to band with us inside the Iron Council.

Me, the Mrs., and Maine | TRICIA MICHLER

IRON COUNCIL

One of the biggest challenges men face on their journey to improve themselves is having to go at it alone. It can be done but there is something powerful to be found in banding together with other men.

And, that’s where a brotherhood of like-minded men comes into play. We call it the Iron Council and through helping thousands of men like you tap into this powerful network, we’ve seen men salvage devastated marriages, reconnect with their children in powerful ways, lose weight, gain confidence, develop clarity, and generally make themselves into stronger, tougher, better, more capable men.

We do this through our framework of communication and a proven system that is designed to push and test men in ways they may never have.

One Man Can Make a Difference| ANTHONY WAITE
01:07:47

I talk with a lot of men who don’t think they can make a difference. Yes, they have big aspirations for themselves and others, but they feel like the odds are stacked against them in achieving their goals.

The reality is that just isn’t the case. And, today, I am joined by my good friend, Anthony Waite, to show you what is possible when one man puts his heart, mind, and hands into the work required to lifting others up. We talk about managing expectations, finding congruency with work and home life, avoiding burnout, and how one man can make a difference.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A band of brothers
  • Returning from deployment
  • Managing expectations as a leader
  • The importance of a father figure
  • Cutting ties
  • Finding truth in your current reality
  • Self-reflection
  • Physical and mental challenges
  • The power in forgiveness
  • Accepting responsibility
  • Answering the question “why me?”
  • How to be a R.E.A.L. success
  • Saying yes to opportunity
  • Taking one step at a time

ANTHONY WAITE

Gents, today I am joined by my good friend and someone who has been with us inside the Iron Council for the last three years.

He is an officer in the Navy and, as you’ll hear in our conversation, a man who is extremely impactful not only in his career but in his community as well. I’ve been so impressed with this man’s growth over the past several years and as much as he’s learned from and been inspired by the Order of Man mission, I’ve been inspired and uplifted by him.

This is the caliber of men we have in the Iron Council. I’m honored to be able to introduce him to you.

IRON COUNCIL

Needless to say, based on this conversation today, the Iron Council is a powerful tool and resource in the lives of Anthony and hundreds more.

These are the types of men you can expect to find inside our exclusive brotherhood – men who don’t necessarily have everything figured out but men who are on the path to improving themselves in every capacity.

And, as powerful as a transformation story as Anthony’s is, there are hundreds of other stories of self-improvement from men who are harnessing the power of a band of brothers inside the Iron Council.

Become a Brand Builder | HANS MOLENKAMP
01:34:41

All of us are building a brand at any given point regardless of if we’re intentional about it or not. Whether you’re trying to convince your kids to do their chores, get that lady to go on a date with you, secure a promotion with your boss, or solicit clients to do business with you, your credibility and influence spell the difference between success and failure.

Today I am joined by a man uniquely qualified to discuss this topic as he’s been a major player in Monster’s branding and marketing and eventually working closely with the UFC to sponsor fighters. His name is Hans Molenkamp and in this conversation, we talk about what it means to be influential, how to develop powerful relationships, the power of exploring many different areas of interest, and, ultimately, how to become a brand builder. 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Representing combat sports and athletic teams
  • A marketing gun for hire
  • Monster Energy Drink
  • Transitioning from action sports to MMA
  • Triumph United becomes a global brand
  • What it takes to build a brand
  • Helping others develop their plan
  • The importance of networking
  • Creating synergy
  • Developing content that works
  • Identifying stardom
  • Walking the line of friendship and business
  • Positive mental attitude
  • Overcoming monotony

HANS MOLENKAMP

Gents, today I am joined by a fascinating individual. His name is Hans Molenkamp and he’s a bit of a modern renaissance man in that he explores so many unique interest and activities from photography to skateboarding to surfing to marketing to mixed martial arts.

He’s arguably one of the most influential people connected with the UFC and, if you follow his Instagram page, you’ll see he’s connected with guys like Rampage, Conor McGregor, and just about everyone in between.

He initially got his start in marketing and branding in the mid-’90s with Osiris shoes then on to a key component of Monster’s marketing and branding division and eventually becoming a liaison of sorts between Monster, professional fighters, and the UFC.

And, today, he’s here to share his story from humble beginnings to go on to work with some of the most elite athletes in the world.

IRON COUNCIL

As I was flying home from Sorinex’s SummerStrong event, the plane started to bob up and down. As we dealt with the turbulence, I could feel the pilot making corrections in altitude and direction to navigate us out of the clouds. And, as he did, I couldn’t help but think of his team on the ground directing him to safer, smoother paths.

I share that with you because everywhere you look, you can see the value in having a powerful team to direct you throughout the course of your life. Yeah, you could go at it alone but why deal with all the turbulence of life if there is someone there to support you, back you up, and light the better path?

That’s the power of the Iron Council, our exclusive brotherhood of men working together to chart their own paths and learn how to navigate the pressure and turbulence this life has to offer.

The Power of Proximity | KEN COLEMAN
01:08:09

Everyone knows the adage, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” And, as overly-simplistic as it may be, there is a lot of truth to that for a lot of different reasons.

Today, I am joined by Ken Coleman, author of the Proximity Principle to talk about how true that statement is and to break it down for us even further We talk about finding the right people and being in the right places, overcoming the limiting beliefs fueled by pride and fear, building an expansive web of the right connections, and how to utilize the “Proximity Principle” to get ahead.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Our intrinsic need to provide
  • Passion versus provision
  • The emotional journey
  • Bone-crushing doubt
  • Weathering the storms of life
  • The Discovery Process
  • Applying the Proximity Effect
  • Stepping into objectivity
  • Silencing fear
  • Finding the right people
  • The value of humility
  • The first bold step

KEN COLEMAN

Now, I’ll admit, I hadn’t been familiar with his work until Ramsey Solutions reached out to me about his new book, Proximity Principle, but after doing some research and learning more about him, I truly understand how well this guy knows his stuff and how powerful a resource he can be for any man who is trying to get ahead in his career and build something meaningful and significant in his life.

Ken is an author, a career expert, and a member of Ramsey Solutions where he frequently co-hosts the Dave Ramsey Show.

I really enjoyed this conversation and I have no doubt you will too. And, more importantly, I know you’ll get a ton out of it.

 

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, let me talk with you about the “Wild Man” for a minute. The Wild Man is the man inside that we’ve either silenced or allowed society to silence for far too long.

And, it’s the part of us that we need to learn to let out of the cage more often. He is our competitive, aggressive, dominant, and wild nature and, in the right circumstances and context can be used as a powerful force for growth and expansion in our lives. But, most of us have allowed ourselves to be domesticated for too long and have shut down the very elements that give us a competitive advantage.

That’s why we’re talking about the Wild Man inside our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council this month. We’re discovering how to acknowledge, explore, and unlock him within ourselves and tap back into the masculine roots we’ve bound and chained at the systematic conditioning of society.

And, on top of the discussions, we’re challenging ourselves (500 men) to push harder and further than we have for years with the goal of accomplishing huge things in our lives.

If you want to join the discussion and the challenge, band with us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

End Self-Sabotage | GARY JOHN BISHOP
01:03:56

I think it’s safe to assume all of us have ambitions for the future. You wouldn’t be listening to this podcast if that wasn’t the case. Unfortunately, we have a tendency of getting in our own way and sabotaging ourselves in the pursuit of those ambitions.

Today, I am joined by New York Times Bestselling Author and repeat guest, Gary John Bishop, to talk about how hardwired into us the self-sabotage really is, what the three greatest saboteurs are, how to balance certainty and aspirations, the myth of truth, and how to finally end self-sabotage.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The misconception of “truth”
  • Living life with intent
  • Personal expansion
  • Awareness versus knowledge
  • Making a real change in your life
  • How to become more aware
  • Finding new paradigms in life
  • Stepping back into self-sabotage
  • Focusing on the right things
  • Being a victim of life
  • The chaotic world
  • Lack of fulfillment
  • Wanting certainty but desiring new
  • Questioning everything you know
  • Going beyond your own constraints

GARY JOHN BISHOP

Today, I am joined by New York Times Best Selling Author, Gary John Bishop for our second discussion regarding his second book, Stop Doing That Sh*t.

Gary is a personal development expert and has received a lot of attention over the past several years for his unique approach to self-help and his ability to cut to the heart of matters without a lot of B.S.

His first book, UnFu*k Yourself, has sold nearly 1,000,000 copies and is a testament to the fact that people are tired of the motivational, rah-rah, self-help space that has left people informed but not any further down the path to their objectives.

Sit back, take notes, and enjoy this powerful conversation with Gary John Bishop.

IRON COUNCIL

Along the lines of self-help, I think many of us have seen where it falls short and how so many men who have a desire to improve themselves never really do.

That’s why, when I founded the Order of Man, it was always my intention to bridge the gap between what we know and what we do. And, that is where our exclusive brotherhood of men comes into play.

It’s really not enough to know you want to improve and then go at it alone. You need two things: a framework and a network. A framework to tap into a proven strategy that will help you become an optimized man and a network of men who are on the same path (and further down it) to assist along the way.

You’ll find both inside the Iron Council and learn how valuable a framework and network can really be. To learn more, head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

JOSH TYLER

Today, I am joined by my friend Josh Tyler who I consider to be one of the most capable men I know.

He’s an MMA fighter, a survivalist, and a man who knows a ton about how to keep himself alive in some of the most challenging and dangerous encounters we may face. He’s also been instrumental in the experiences we run with men and their boys and has personally helped me become more equipped to deal with some of life’s uncertainties.

He’s also some who looks for difficult situations and thrusts himself into those environments willingly to make himself more capable and proficient as a man.

Take notes today and enjoy my conversation with Josh Tyler

IRON COUNCIL

One of the biggest challenges men face on their journey to improve themselves is having to go at it alone. It can be done but there is something powerful to be found in banding together with other men.

And, that’s where a brotherhood of like-minded men comes into play. We call it the Iron Council and through helping thousands of men like you tap into this powerful network, we’ve seen men salvage devastated marriages, reconnect with their children in powerful ways, lose weight, gain confidence, develop clarity, and generally make themselves into stronger, tougher, better, more capable men.

We do this through our framework of communication and a proven system that is designed to push and test men in ways they may never have.

Transform Your Life | REMI ADELEKE
01:22:30

Regardless of your station in life, I think it’s safe to assume that every single one of us has a desire to transform our lives in some way. There is a myriad of reasons why a lot of people aren’t able to make that transformation happen: lack of motivation, discipline, drive, etc.

Today, I am joined by former Navy SEAL, Remi Adeleke to talk about how he went from a son of a wealthy and powerful man in Nigeria to growing up on the streets of the Bronx, to becoming a Navy Seal, and eventually a Hollywood actor and screenwriter, and ultimately, how he transformed his life.

Show Highlights

  • Writing a book to inspire
  • Treating people appropriately
  • Turning anger into positivity
  • Doing the hard work
  • Overcoming mental deficiencies
  • Succeeding at all cost
  • Appreciating fear
  • The importance of your mind
  • Searching out father figures
  • The progression of a criminal life
  • Transitioning into the military
  • Never giving up on people
  • Surviving Hell Week
  • Completing BUD/S
  • Stepping into fatherhood
  • Life after the Seals

REMI ADELEKE

I had the opportunity to sit down with an incredible man last week. His name is Remi Adeleke.

You may know of him as a former Navy SEAL and Hollywood actor but what you might not know is how this man was born to a chief of an African tribe in Nigeria, lost his father at age 5, ended up moving to the states with his mother, brother, and not a penny to their name, starting selling drugs and running scams to make some money, getting into the Navy under some questionable circumstances, and eventually becoming a Navy SEAL and Hollywood actor.

Guys, you are going to be absolutely blown away with this human and his inspiring story. So, sit back, take some notes if you want, and be inspired to make more of your circumstances and transform your life.

IRON COUNCIL

When I say the term, “Wild Man,” I think we all have some ideas of what that individual may look like and how he might behave.  Most of us, as men, have been conditioned to silence the “Wild Man” within us and while there are times that certainly should be the case, there are other times where it may be required to let him out of his cage.

That’s exactly why we’re going to be discussing this inside the Iron Council, our exclusive brotherhood, for the month of May. Civilized behavior serves its purpose but too many of us have locked away our wild nature and thrown away the key.

This month will be all about rediscovering who we are as men and why it’s critically important to tapping into our primal roots. You’ll band with a Battle Team of 14 other men, be challenged to take on some new adventures and risks and be held to task in accomplishing worthy objectives in your life.

We all know that testosterone is one of the key hormones that drives much of our masculine behavior. What you may not know is that testosterone levels are trending downward for men of all ages.

Make The Leap | TOMMY BAKER
01:08:43

Making a leap in any facet of your life whether it’s within a relationship, career, or anywhere in between is a challenging thing to do. The leaps, however, expose us to new growth and new opportunities that we do not open ourselves up to any other way.

Tommy is one of the most positive people I know and when he sent me a copy of his latest book, The Leap of Your Life, I knew I wanted to get him back on the podcast for round two.

He is a fitness and life coach and the founder of The Resist Average Academy podcast where he is teaching people across the planet to take control of their lives and overcome the hurdles and barriers that have been keeping them back.

You’ll hear it in his voice that his positivity and energy is infectious and this conversation is packed with useful information, especially if you’re ready to make a big leap in your life that could lead to amazing results.

IRON COUNCIL

This morning as I was walking around in my yard, I noticed several weeds in my grass that actually looked like grass. But they weren’t, they were weeds attempting to infiltrate my yard. So, I did what any good steward over his yard would do. I picked them from the ground and threw them away.

I share this with you because life is often very much the same way. And, like the weeds I picked this morning, it is critical we learn to recognize and remove any weeds from our life. But equally important is then replacing that void with what we actually want to grow. And, that’s where our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council comes in.

We’ve created an environment designed to shape and grow men. We work collectively to hold each other to the highest possible standards and accomplish big things in our lives. And, when you band with us, you know that you are tapping into a band of brothers that will foster the powerful changes you want to see in your life.

Return to Masculinity | ELLIOTT HULSE
59:44

With regards to being a man, it seems to me that society has watered down and diluted the definition of masculinity. And, although we may not consciously realize it, the shift from "capable man" - strong, bold, courageous, and proficient - to something else entirely has impacted the way we show up in our lives.

Today, I am joined by the one and only Elliott Hulse to talk about that societal shift and how they've influenced our thoughts and actions. We talk about why boys and men need to be initiated, the importance of the Patriarchy, how hierarchies serve men effectively, and why we need to return to masculinity.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why boys and men must be initiated
  • The critical component of any masculine initiation
  • How to spot pseudo initiations
  • How men work best together compared to women
  • How to increase your sexual power
  • Why your old self must die
  • How men can "atone to their fathers"
  • The importance of the Patriarchy in society
  • How to destroy your inner beta
  • The challenges of public education for boys and men
  • Why a man needs to heal his "inner feminine"
  • Developing patterns for success as a man
  • How hierarchies serve men effectively
  • How to develop the mature masculine
  • Why men have inappropriate relationships with their women

ELLIOTT HULSE

Today I am joined by a man I know a lot of you follow, Mr. Elliot Hulse.

I've been following Elliott for some time now and after dozens and dozens of requests to get him on the podcast, I reached out and made it happen.

Elliott is a strength and conditioning coach and built up much of his reputation by teaching others how to develop physical strength. But his idea of strength goes so much deeper than that and covers not only physical but mental and emotional as well.

Lately, he's been talking a lot about the demise of masculinity and how we, as men, can reclaim and become more masculine and how it would serve us well to do it. I knew this one would be interesting and unique to what we've done in the past. I think you're going to enjoy it and get a lot from our conversation which, based on how it went, will be one of many more conversations.

How to Invest, the Right Way | DR. DANIEL CROSBY
01:01:00

If building wealth was simply about math, we'd all be independently wealthy because we all know how to add and subtract.

Today, I'm joined by repeat guest, Dr. Daniel Crosby to talk about human psychology and why it hinders your ability to build the level of wealth you're after.

Politically Incorrect | CHAD PRATHER
01:02:45

If you're anything like me, you're fed up with the noise and nonsense we see in mainstream and social media. It seems that everywhere we turn and with everything we say, people are looking for reasons to be upset and/or offended.

My guest today does not allow that to back him down or dictate the conversations he wants to have on some very important subjects everyone else is too afraid to talk about, from sexual orientation, religion, masculinity, politics and just about every other topic we're "not supposed to talk about."

He's been entertaining people on TV as early at 6 years old and hasn't let up since. He's been featured on Fox New, A&E, CNN, MSN, and The Blaze. In fact, he's everywhere. So much so that I can list all the things he's up to.

That said, I'm excited to have had the chance to sit down and talk with someone who I admire for not only his perspective and his interesting approach to sharing it but his willingness to do so in an environment that seems to be increasingly wanting to shut down these types of conversations.

There is no question that we are increasingly committing ourselves to digital use.

I've been fascinated with his work since I first read, So Good They Can't Ignore you. In fact, many of his theories and ideas have been used in my life to build this movement, Order of Man. I'm not sure I would have had so much success with the organization without incorporating some of his ideas, including the ones he'll be sharing with us today.

Confidence is something a lot of men struggle with. Unfortunately, it's also something a lot of men believe you either have or you don't. That just isn't the case. As with any skill, it can be developed through intentional action. Here are ten steps to foster more confidence:

  1. Have a deep, emotionally charged vision for your life
  2. Be very specific on what you want to accomplish and why
  3. Tie that to small, actionable steps you can take daily
  4. Surround yourself with those who are achieving what you want to achieve
  5. Familiarize yourself with your fear in controlled environments
  6. Develop and build upon small wins
  7. Find people who will hold you accountable
  8. Don’t make excuses – call your fear for it for what it is
  9. Redefine Failure
  10. Weigh the Cost

How to be Funny and Why You Should Care | KEITH YACKEY
01:18:04

No one ever accused me of being funny but that doesn't mean I don't see the value of humor and comedy in life and in society in general.

Today, I'm joined by my good friend, Keith Yackey, who over the past couple of years has transitioned from the corporate stage to the comedy stage.

  • 5 key components to being great at presenting
  • Why hiring a coach is critical to your success

KEITH YACKEY

My guest today is my friend, Keith Yackey.

He's been extremely successful in the corporate and event world, building an 8-figure investment firm in just two short years.

But the reason I wanted to have him on the podcast is for his more recent endeavors, stand up comedy. It's something that has always been fascinating (and scary) to me so, to watching Keith go from, comedy newcomer to performing in some of the biggest comedy clubs in the world, has been incredible to watch.

I hope you enjoy today's conversation with Keith as he shares with us how to become funnier and why it's so important.

Become the Hunter | DONNIE VINCENT
01:19:09

As many of you know, I have begun to immerse myself more deeply in the world of hunting. I've always been fascinated with the life and mindset of a hunter but never grew up being too exposed to it. Now that I am, my mind has been opened to what it truly means to be not only a hunter but a conservationist as well.

Today, I am joined by a man I have been watching for a long time, Mr. Donnie Vincent. He is a film-maker, a conservationist, a hunter, and one of the most trusted voices when it comes to the symbiotic relationship between the hunter and the hunted.

We talk about we have not evolved out of hunting, how ignorance around hunting is hurting all of us, how to become better stewards over our resources, and how to become the hunter.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why we should pursue our passions
  • How to become a good steward over our resources
  • The problems with factory farming
  • Why we have not evolved out of hunting
  • Why we need to give back to nature
  • The relationship between the hunter and the hunted
  • The seriousness and gravity of the role of a hunter
  • How ignorance around hunting is hurting all of us
  • How to rectify the odds between hunting and conservation
  • The symbiotic relationship between everything
  • Why we owe it to the animal to become the best hunter possible
  • Why we should not pick sides as a hunter or non-hunter
  • How we can better self-regulate
  • The power of asking serious questions about food sustainability
  • Why education is the core of conversationism


DONNIE VINCENT

My guest today is Donnie Vincent and he is someone I deeply admire and respect regarding his work with the wilderness.

This is a man who has truly immersed himself in the connection with nature and is one of the leading voices and champions of sustainable and ethical hunting.

He is a biologist, hunter, explorer, conservationist, sportsman, and filmmaker. But one of his most powerful pursuits from my perspective is that of "storyteller."

Donnie creates amazing films documenting his journey into the wilderness, his connection with nature, and the hunts he pursues.

If you've ever considered hunting (or already are), following Donnie should be an absolute requirement.

DAVID GOGGINS | Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds
01:37:00

The mind is a powerful thing. It can be used as a tremendous source of good or a tremendous source of destruction in your life. The way you choose to train and use it could, quite literally, be the only thing keeping you from accomplishing your greatest ambitions.

Today, I am joined by former Navy SEAL, ultrarunner, endurance athlete, wildland firefighter, and all-around badass, David Goggins. We talk about starring down adversity, using challenges as the fuel to propel yourself forward, the sacrifices you'll need to make to be successful, race issues and political correctness in America, and how you can master your mind and defy the odds.

DAVID GOGGINS

The man I have the privilege of introducing you to today, David Goggins, truly needs to no introduction.

Suffice it to say, David is one of the most insane human beings on the planet and someone I have respected and extremely inspired by over the past couple of years.

We've all watched his videos and most of us have read or listened to his latest book but having the opportunity to sit down face to face with him only increased my level of respect for what David has gone through, the odds he's overcome, and the incredible work he's been able to accomplish despite those odds being stacked against him.

Gentlemen, set this one on repeat as David and I have one of the most powerful conversations I've ever been part of.

I've been following TJ for years and he's one of my favorite fighters because of the passion and level of discipline he possesses. Which, is likely why he's been so successful as a fighter. In fact, he's arguably one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the UFC.

Over the past several months, it's likely that you've seen more archery and bow hunting pictures and topics from me. That's because, for the last year, I've really begun to immerse myself in becoming better bow hunter.

That said, I've gotten so many requests and questions about archery that I thought it only made sense to bring the best person on I could think of to talk about it.

He's written for our site before and one of his articles happens to be one of the most controversial of ours to date as he covers a topic that a lot of men aren't comfortable in discussing and one that remains very polarizing to a lot of men.

David Gilmore said, "The real man gains renown by standing between his family and destruction, absorbing the blows of fate with equanimity."

The question then remains, are you adequately prepared to stand in front of your family when the wolf comes knocking at the door?

Learning from the Great Ancients | SCOTT HAMBRICK
58:15

We all have access to the world's greatest minds, philosophies, experiments, and ideas. All it takes for us to tap into these is to crack open what my guest refers to as a Great Book, and unlock the lost thoughts, ideas, and secrets to a successful life.

Today I am joined by Scott Hambrick, founder of Online Great Books, to talk about how best to tap into these great ancient works, how to extract the most value from them, where to start when learning about ancient literature and philosophy, the benefits of reading the classics, and what you can learn from the great ancients.

War on Weakness | FRIDAY FIELD NOTES

It's painfully obvious that men are becoming weaker both physically and mentally. A large part of it may have to do with the changing landscape of our day-to-day lives but that doesn't negate the need for strong men in an otherwise weak society.

Today I talk about the ways we're becoming weaker, the antidote to weakness, and issue a challenge to join me in the War on Weakness.

Man Up | BEDROS KEUILIAN
59:33

"Man up" is a term that is likely to trigger a lot of people in the world today. It's too bad because the term is so misunderstood by society and so powerful when there is a clear understanding of what it actually means.

My guest today, Mr. Bedros Keuilian, talks with us about what that means and how to instill the meaning into our boys, how to lead yourself more effectively, assessing and analyzing risk, overcoming bad programming and each and every one of us can more effectively "man up" in our lives.

Gentlemen, it is my pleasure to introduce you to our repeat guest, Bedros Keuilian.

I was so blown away with his my first conversation with him and his story that I thought it only made sense to bring him back on considering he just released a new book called, Man Up: How to Cut the Bullshit and Kick Ass in Business (and in Life).

Bedros is a serial entrepreneur, speaker, coach, and author and one of my favorite people to talk to because of his no-nonsense approach to life. I really think you're going to enjoy this episode because he tells it like it is and says the things most people are thinking but too afraid to say.

Guys, get your notepads out and get ready to hear from a man who has come from nothing and turned his into an absolutely incredible life.

Turning Tragedy into Triumph | SIDNEY SMITH
42:15

Every once in a while, you meet someone so special you know you need to connect more with that person. Today, I have the opportunity to share my conversation with one of those people, Sidney Smith.

I met him briefly at a 5k then spent a couple hours hiking down a mountainside while shooting our bows at the Total Archery Challenge. That doesn't sound that special until you learn that Sid is a double amputee. and does his walking and running on prosthetic blades. We talk about overcoming fear, focusing on the positives of life, learning to appreciate what we have, getting used to pain, and turning tragedy into triumph.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • How to develop a growth mindset in the toughest circumstances
  • The difference between being "disabled" and being "challenged"
  • How to learn about who you really are
  • Understanding that the greatest disability you could have is in your mind
  • Overcoming the fear of uncertainty
  • How to make extremely difficult decisions
  • Learning to focus on the positives of life
  • How not to take things in your life for granted
  • The challenges that come with being a double amputee
  • Overcoming how people treat those with disabilities
  • The power of thinking big and giving yourself purpose
  • Pushing past physical and mental pain
  • Learning to cope with physical and mental limitations


SIDNEY SMITH

A couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to participate in the Total Archery Challenge in Northern Utah with my friends at MTN OPS.

I met a lot of great people but I had the incredible opportunity to run the course with my guest today, Mr. Sidney Smith. I had only bumped into him one other time but as I spent 3 or so hours walking down a mountain with Sid, a double amputee, I was amazed and humbled at how this man shows up in his life.

He's an avid bow hunter, a triathlete, and, as I mentioned before, he's a double amputee. But he doesn't let that keep him from living his life in a big way and inspiring others along the way to do the same.

Most of you know exactly who Ed is so I'll spare you the long introduction. But let's just say for now that Ed is an incredible entrepreneur, a powerful coach and mentor to some of the most successful people on the planet, and the host and founder of the Ed Mylett Podcast. Today, you're going to hear exactly why I look up to this man and why he's achieved the tremendous amount of success he has.

It's not a surprise to you that there is so much noise and nonsense that attempts to engage our focus and keep us distracted from the things that truly matter.

Purpose, Passion, and Profit | EVAN HAFER
58:10

So many men believe that the terms purpose and profit are mutually exclusive - that for one to exist, the other can't. That just isn't the case. In fact, when you learn to align your purpose and passion with the ability to make a profit, you have a greater ability to impact the world in a positive way.

Today, I am joined by the founder of Black Rifle Coffee Company, Evan Hafer, to talk about how he's managed to build such a successful business around what was simply a passion project. We talk about the power of utilizing new media for marketing, finding and speaking to your tribe, sacrificing ego on the altar of business, and how to align purpose, passion, and profit.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

How Evan went from firearms to roasting
How Black Rifle Coffee Company makes and utilizes viral videos
Why interactive marketing is crucial to a business' success
Evan's view on the competition
Defining "great marketing"
Discovering, developing, and speaking to your tribe
Giving birth to a new you
Identifying and letting go of false expectations
Why you have to sacrifice your ego on the altar of business
Why radical transparency is crucial
How to effectively add people into your ecosystem
Why businesses should be less concerned with political correctness
How to recruit new employees effectively
Why you need to differentiate between individuals and the company
Finding and securing funding for your project


EVAN HAFER


My guest today is Evan Hafer and although you may not know his name, most of you listening are familiar with his company, Black Rifle Coffee Company.

He is a former member of the Special Forces and between his multiple combat deployments, he spent time honing his firearm and roasting skills.

When Evan left the service in 2015, he learned how to market and turn his second passion for roasting coffee into not only a fulltime business but a global coffee company that is recognized for their viral irreverent videos and marketing campaigns, and their incredible coffee.

Now, I will be the first to tell you that I don't drink coffee myself but when given the chance to connect with Evan, I couldn't pass him up as he's clearly on to something when it comes to building a movement and working to employ our nation's veterans.

A More Complete Beast | JACK DONOVAN
01:07:17

What does it mean to be a complete beast? This is a question my guest, Jack Donovan, attempts to answer in his latest book, appropriately titled, A More Complete Beast. There is a reason the title is likely to resonate with you, as a man. Each of us understands that we are both man and beast.

Today we cover so much about the subject of masculinity including why being a man has to be an intentional choice, the power of what he calls the "conquering eye," how to avoid becoming a victim of victims, and how each and every one of us can become a more complete beast.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • What it means to become a more complete beast
  • Why you have to make an intentional choice to be a man
  • Why men are perceived as a threat to society
  • Why you should challenge yourself as a man
  • The four masculine tactical virtues - strength, courage, mastery, honor
  • Why some people try to redefine words to fit their narrative
  • The power of the "conquering eye"
  • Why it's important to define an honor code for yourself
  • Why you should care about some people's opinions
  • Avoiding become the victims of the victims
  • Sifting through the noise of others
  • Why there is no honor in being a victim, only in overcoming it
  • Why vulnerability is not as powerful as modern society would have you believe
  • Why masculinity is not a mask


JACK DONOVAN

Gentlemen, my guest today is a man a lot of you are familiar with and someone I've had on the podcast before.

His name is Jack Donovan and he is the author of several books on the subject of modernity and masculinity including The Way of Men, A Sky Without Eagles, Becoming a Barbarian, and his latest release, A More Complete Beast.

As you may know, Jack is a fascinating man and probably one you wouldn't expect to hear on this podcast (in fact, I made a joke about Jack, a pagan, and myself, a Mormon, walking into an ax-throwing bar just after this interview). That said, his views on the subject of manliness and masculinity, although controversial, resonate with so many of us because they're spot on and refreshing in a time when more and more of society has a hard time even discussing what it means to be a man.

The Softer Side of Violence | IAN STRIMBECK
01:00:50

Violence isn't a word a lot of people believe should be attributed to men and his responsibilities. We know that isn't true because we believe that the ability to violence is not only within us, it can be harnessed to keep ourselves and others protected from those who wish to do violence to us.

Today, I am joined by Marine Corps Veteran, Ian Strimbeck to talk about why every man should learn how to harness the darker side of masculinity.

  • The correct priority of engagement
  • How to use appearance as a deterrent
  • Why establishing baseline behavior in others is so crucial


IAN STRIMBECK


My guest today is veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Ian Strimbeck.

Ian reached out a couple months ago and, as I was preparing for this conversation, I was extremely impressed by his resume as a veteran and warrior in not only the military but in the executive protection space.

He's taken what he has learned on the battlefield and now teaches those who want to be better protectors of themselves and the people they have a responsibility for.

This was such a fascinating discussion with an extremely fascinating man and I think, not only are you going to enjoy our conversation, you're going to walk away with some information that could just save your life.

I was a little skeptical at first but I've been amazed and how much this guy knows about functional fitness, strength building, and men's health in general.

Today, we talk about a lot of different elements of health and fitness including the message from his latest book, Yoga Fitness for Men.

FFN 116: How to Find a Hobby
19:22

Today, we talk about the importance of finding a hobby and 5 strategies for finding hobbies that engage your mind and soul. It's easy to dismiss the notion of carving out time for ourselves considering all our responsibilities but it's imperative if we have any hope of becoming the men we're capable of becoming.

173: The Man Diet | Chad Howse
45:15

There is no shortage of diet and nutrition advice out there. Most of it is hype, gimmicky, extremely biased, and untested/unfounded. It's no wonder though as most of us are after the quick fix to a lifetime of making bad food and exercise choices.

Today, I am joined by Chad Howse, author of "The Man Diet," to talk about why these other diets fail and why a man's approach to what he eats should be relatively simple. We talk about the specific benefits of incorporating this style of nutrition in your life, why intermittent fasting works so well, keys to developing testosterone naturally and safely, society's emasculation of men, and why you should consider incorporating the "Man Diet" into your life.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why this has been dubbed the "man diet"
  • The benefits of incorporating this diet into your life
  • The power of intermittent fasting
  • Common myths when it comes to diet and nutrition
  • Keys to developing testosterone naturally and safely
  • Why competition is critical in developing testosterone
  • The chemical differences between men and women
  • How to track macronutrients
  • Why you should consider adopting the mantra, "excellence in all things"
  • The damaging effects of cortisol levels and how to reduce them
  • The danger of society's emasculation of men
  • The "do's" and "don't's" of eating clean


CHAD HOWSE


My guest today is someone that I've been following and paying attention to for quite some time.

We only recently connected with the release of his latest book, The Man Diet. He has been on a mission over the past several years of reclaiming what it means to be a man and his goals and objectives are very much in alignment with what we share here in the Order of Man.

He is the founder of Chad Howse Fitness and Average 2 Alpha and today he is here to talk about the power of incorporating what he has dubbed, "the man diet."

FFN 115: The Path of Most Resistence
17:21

The path of most resistance. It's a term you'll rarely hear. That's because we, as men, are hard-wired to look for the path of least resistance. And, while there's merit to being efficient and effective in the quickest, most convenient way possible, it's not always in our best interest to take the easy route. Today, I share why.

172: Work, Don't Whine | Brandon Lilly
01:08:19

Every man, at some point, will lose his way. It's not really a question of "if" but a question of "when." When that day comes, the way you decided to face that adversity will spell the difference in you overcoming or succumbing.

My guest today, powerlifter Brandon Lilly, is a man who has faced his fair share of obstacles but refuses to quit and always charges forward. We talk about the power of saying "no," why nothing ends with a period, how to develop more confidence, overcoming the need to be seen, and why every man ought to consider adopting the mantra, "Work, Don't Whine."


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

• Why working without whining is so powerful
• How to say "no"
• Why problems scale and how to avoid it
• Why nothing ends with a "period"
• Finding the middle ground and why it's so important
• Why the way we do things matters
• How to develop and build more confidence
• Overcoming the need to be seen
• How ego and arrogance are hurting you
• The power of integrity and telling the truth


BRANDON LILLY

My guest today is my friend, Brandon Lilly. A lot of you know who this man is but if you don't, I'm not sure how you've missed him.

He's one of the biggest men I know and certainly one of the strongest. He is ranked as one of the strongest powerlifters and consistently lifts more than 2,000lbs combined in the deadlift, squat and bench press.

He's worked with and consulted SEAL Teams, University of Kentucky Football, the Bengals, and numerous other organizations and Crossfit gyms around the country.

But on top of all that, he's a man who is extremely humble in failure and victory (you'll hear some of those stories today). Today he's going to be talking about overcoming some of his trials and why he's adopted "Work, Don't Whine" as his mantra.

FFN 114: Fixing Your Marriage by Fixing Yourself
29:56

There are a lot of men who want to fix their marriages. While it sounds counterintuitive, the best way to fix your marriage is to fix yourself. Because, when you improve who you are as a man and how you're showing up as a husband, you're naturally going to produce a better marriage. Sure, a strong marriage is the result of the things that both you and your wife are doing but there's nothing you can do about her. That's why it's best to focus on the one thing you can control - yourself.

Here are 7 ways to do just that...

171: Leading From the Top | Lt. Col. Scott Mann
46:41

Every man will, at some point, be placed in a position of leadership, whether it's in the walls of his home, a new project at work, a promotion, ecclesiastical services, with friends, or simply leading himself. His ability to lead effectively will spell the difference between success and failure in any endeavor.

Today, I am joined by retired Green Beret Lieutenant Colonel, Scott Mann to talk about how to be a strong leader. We talk about the importance of becoming a great storyteller, how to play your position well and allow others to do the same, why leaders need to learn to get out of the way, and how you can lead from the top.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why leaders need to become great storytellers
  • The importance of becoming your own hero
  • How great leaders learn to play their position
  • Why leaders need to learn to get out of the way

  • How we locate ourselves through others' stories
  • The power of writing your own story
  • Why you need to meet people where they are

LIEUTENANT COLONEL SCOTT MANN


Today, I have the honor of introducing you to retired Green Beret Lieutenant Colonel, Scott Mann.

He is a master at building relationships in high-stakes, competitive environments, as you might imagine. He spent 23 years in the United States Army (18 of which in were spent as a Green Beret) where he specialized in missions all over the world including Colombia, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

He is also a regular contributor on CNN, Fox, and Bloomberg, and many others where he shares his insights and experience when it comes to leading teams effectively.

Obviously, he's worked in some extremely hostile environments where he's been able to lead missions effectively through his ability to build trust and credibility where most of that had been destroyed.

Becoming a Minimalist | Joshua Becker
46:41

Every time you turn around, you're bombarded with a thousand ads, a million choices, and an endless supply of options and "opportunities." It's becoming increasingly difficult to manage the landscape of the ever-growing decisions that need to be made. Add to that our desire to be seen and perceived a certain way by people we may not even know or like, and it's easy to see why the disease of wanting more is becoming a real problem.

My guest today, Joshua Becker, makes the case for why more is less. He argues (and, I agree) that having less stuff in our life can truly unlock the key to a more meaningful and purpose-driven life. We talk about the benefits of owning less, why we have the desire to own more than we'll ever need or use, the burden extra possessions place on our lives, and how you can become a minimalist.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The positive benefits of owning less
  • The first things you should get rid of
  • Why living on less can be so challenging
  • How our brains aren't able to handle maximum input
  • The burden "stuff" places on our lives
  • Three reasons we feel the need to own so much stuff
  • How to build the habit of living off less
  • How to decide what the keep and what to eliminate
  • Why money does not equal happiness and security
  • The power of being more generous with your money
  • How to overcome the resistance to living minimally
  • The very first steps to reducing your amount of possessions


JOSHUA BECKER

Gentlemen, I have the honor of introducing you to my guest today, Joshua Becker.

He is the founder of Becoming Minimalist and the bestselling author of The More of Less. And, in the spirit of the message we'll be discussing today, I will keep this introduction short.

We were introduced by a mutual friend who had taken much of what Joshua has been teaching and incorporating it into his own life. I did some initial research and immediately recognized a need to adopt the practice of "rational minimalism" into my own. I've already begun implementing some of his teachings and I can honestly say I've been able to free up more mental and physical capacity for more important pursuits in my life.

FFN 112: The Systematic Softening of Society
26:59

Society is becoming softer. Society is becoming weaker. This idea of softness is perpetuated by much of society, the school system, media, and entertainment and Hollywood. We do ourselves a huge disservice when we overlook the importance of being strong, tough, gritty, resilient, and all the things that we would traditionally think of when we think of how a man shows up in life.

I'm not suggesting by any means that a man can't be loving, supportive, open, and vulnerable. Of course, he can be those things. There is a time and a place to be that way but to say that that's always the case, to say that we need to be softer at the expense of these other masculine virtues, is hurting society in general. There will come a point in time where those traditional masculine virtues are to be used in order to produce productive outcomes for ourselves, our loved ones, and the people we care about.

Typically, this manifests itself in a negative situation, whether that's something in the family like a divorce, loss of a loved one, or being laid off from a job, but it also applies to natural disasters and emergencies. For example, Hurricane Harvey in Texas and the fires in California last year. During these times, we saw countless men, step up and do what it is that men do best. We also see why strength is important in the global arena as well when it comes to military conflict, for example. It's critical we never overlook the importance of harnessing the power of being tough, resilient, gritty, et cetera.

Today, I want to talk with you about some of the consequences and symptoms of the softening of society. And, I also want to talk about why softness is spreading. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but I do think there are some factors at work here that are promoting this idea of clinging to these softer virtues at the expense of the harder virtues. We're going to talk about how we can become tougher, more resilient, and stronger because the last thing I want to do is complain, whine, or nag about a topic without providing any solutions.

The Disciplined Pursuit of Less | Greg McKeown
53:01

In a world where everyone and everything is clamoring for your attention, it is becomingly increasingly difficult to focus on the vital few as opposed to the trivial many.

My guest today, Greg McKeown, the New York Times Bestselling Author of Essentialism, makes the case for why less can actually be more. We talk about how to eliminate distractions, the criteria for measuring what task you should actually focus on, how to establish proper boundaries, and why every man should take on the disciplined pursuit of less.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why focusing on less can be more
  • How to ensure only the right things get done
  • The difference between thinking broadly and deeply
  • Establishing criteria to measure your decisions
  • How to eliminate the things that don't matter
  • How to effectively establish proper boundaries
  • How to refine and hone your gut instinct
  • Establishing practices for systematic execution
  • Why small wins are vital
  • How using the word 'no' is a liberating exercise
  • Moving your thinking from "can't" to "don't"
  • Focusing on the vital few rather than the trivial many
  • How to create more space (physical and mental) in your life


GREG MCKEOWN

Gentlemen, I want to introduce you to my guest today, Mr. Greg McKeown. He is a man who needs no introduction for many of you.

If you're familiar with his work at all, you've likely read the book, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less. In this New York Times Bestselling book, Greg makes the case for why each of us should strive to focus on the few things that actually matter as opposed to the tasks and projects many of us get bogged down with.

He's spoken all over the world at industry conferences, huge companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, and Twitter, and governments including a personal invitation from the Prince of Norway.

Needless to say, this is a man who knows what he's talking about when it comes to doing less but producing more.

FFN 111: How to Command Respect
23:20

I see so many men who don't have any level of respect for themselves let alone being able to command any respect from others. I was noticing the other day as I was walking to the post office, that there were people who wouldn't even look me in the eye. And, not only would they not look me in the eye, they were working hard to ensure that they didn't have to look me in the eye. When I shake people's hand, I get these limp fish handshakes. Those are just two small examples of the manifestation of a lack of confidence. It's bad, guys. You know exactly what I'm talking about. You've seen this in co-workers, friends, kids, and maybe even yourself.

And, if you're someone who is not commanding respect,  you are living a life less than you're capable of. I don't want that to be the case. I want you, as a man to step up, to be assertive, confident, to be able to ask for promotions, ask women on dates, and get out of this life what you should. And, part of that is being able to command the respect of other people.

When I talk about commanding respect, one of the things that I'm really addressing here is the idea of the "X-factor." We've all seen it. We've all been to a meeting, conference or office setting when we just feel somebody walk into the room. We turn around and see this guy who has "it," whatever "it" is. We can't quite put our finger on it but we know that this is a guy that has something special; there's something unique about this individual. What a lot of men do is write that off and dismiss it as something that he was naturally gifted or naturally born with. Sure, there may be men who have a predisposition to be more like this but I'll tell you what, being able to develop what most people write off as the "X-factor" is something that can be developed. I know this because that's what I've been able to do.

For a long time (especially when I was younger) I walked around very insecure, very complacent, and frankly just a little bit afraid and scared of life in general. I couldn't make eye contact with people. I couldn't hold a conversation. And not only that, I actually just tried to avoid people altogether. It wasn't up until relatively recently that I have been able to develop a level of confidence that allows me to look in another person's eyes. This newfound level of confidence allows me to ask and command exactly what I believe I deserve. I'm just telling you, from experience, it's a significantly better way to live.

I made a post on Instagram two or three weeks ago about teaching others how to treat you. A lot of people agreed with me and said, "Yeah, you definitely teach other people how to treat you," and other people blew that off and dismissed it. I believe that you and I are constantly teaching other people how we will be treated. We do this through our actions and our words and the way we carry ourselves We teach our kids, spouses, colleagues, employers, and bosses to what level of respect we will be treated with.

That's the last thing I want to see in men. I want men to walk around with their heads held high. I want them to have a level of confidence in what they're doing, who they are, and how they show up because I believe that this will, first, save their sanity and well-being and, second, determine much of their success.

Forging Mental Toughness | Ryan Lange
43:22

We all know that we need to be mentally tough. There's no question of that. Yet, forging mental toughness seems to be one of the most elusive pursuits. All of us know how to develop physical toughness but rarely do we have any practices in place that will help us develop mental toughness.

My guest today, Ryan Lange, is one of the most mentally tough men I know. It's amazing considering he's only 21 years old. I won't get into all that he's accomplished just yet but please understand that the amount of physical strain he's put on his body is simply incredible. Today we talk about developing the capability to transcend pain, fostering the willingness to embrace hardship, why hard work is omnipotent, and how to forge more mental toughness.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Developing the capability to transcend pain
  • Developing a willingness to embrace the hardship
  • The critical importance of long-term focus
  • How to break those long-term goals into micro goals
  • The dangers of not developing mental toughness
  • How to effectively train the mind
  • Why hard work is omnipotent
  • How to maintain focus in a world of distraction
  • Our obligation as men to be mentally fit
  • Keeping yourself from wasting experiences
  • The power of linear progression


RYAN LANGE

Ryan Lange reached out a couple months ago and asked to come on the podcast.

Honestly, at first thought, I wasn't going to have him on because so many people talk about mental toughness. It's a little like saying you want to talk about leadership.

But then, I started looking into what this kid has done. And, I say kid because he's only 20 years old. Now, I realize he's a man (not a child) but I'm absolutely blown away with what he's done already.

He's completed 50K's, 50 milers, 100 milers, and at the end of last year completed a 238 mile race in Moab, UT. To give you an idea of what that means, it took roughly 86 hours for him to complete.

I'm incredibly inspired by Ryan and his approach to mental toughness. You will be too.

FFN 110: The Rise of the Peter Pans
24:21

We've all seen the movie, Peter Pan. It's fictional work but it seems that more and more it paints an eerily familiar picture with what we see in the boys who never want to grow up into men.

I'll give you a prime example. Just the other day, there was a piece I read about a 30-year old man who had taken his parents to court because his parents were "evicting" him from their house. How pathetic is this? Maybe there's something wrong with this guy (obviously there's something wrong with this guy). But it's amazing that his thought process is to fight so hard to stay at home. I can't help, but there's something seriously wrong with him. But in addition to that, I can't help but think there's something wrong with the parents. How was this guy raised? How was he fathered?

When I was done with high school, we went on our senior trip. The day I got home - the very next day - I moved out. It wasn't' because I had anything against my mother but because it was time. It was time to leave the nest. I see so many boys who are more concerned with staying at home than experiencing life. They're more concerned with not having bills and upholding their responsibilities. They're more concerned with Call of Duty or Fortnite (or whatever the game is that they're playing). They're shirking their responsibilities. They don't have jobs. And, their parents are enabling them to actually do this. And we question why we're having problems with our boys turning into men. This is the failure to launch syndrome - the rise of the Peter Pans.

The good news is that there are some solutions to this. If you find yourself in a position where you're a boy or a male who wants to grow up but can't figure out how to do it, this article will provide the solution. I see so many men who use the excuse of not having a father figure in their life to justify their lack of performance as men. I can't believe that it needs to be addressed, but it certainly does. So, let's talk about this today.

Dreaming Big and Writing Your Own Story | Charlie Jabaley
57:16

All of us have a story. We all have a past. Our prior circumstances define who we are today but do not have to define who we will become moving forward. Too bad most of us never learn to rewrite the script.

Today, I am joined by a friend and man who is impacting and influencing millions. His name is Charlie Jabaley and he's someone who walked away from a multi-million dollar business to rewrite his life, lose a massive amount of weight, become an endorsed Nike athlete, and bike across the USA. We talk about what inspired him to make a life-altering change and how he is using positivity to change the world.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • How to turn your struggles into fuel
  • Why "war mode" isn't always the best mode
  • How to realize your childhood dreams
  • How to work smarter, not harder
  • How to rally people around a cause
  • How to use imperfection to inspire others
  • The difference between eating "dead" and eating "alive"
  • Overcoming a negative mindset
  • What it means to train like an 8-year-old
  • Using fun and play as the metric for success
  • How to step away from something secure into the unknown


CHARLIE JABALEY


I met Charlie several months ago when he and I were podcasting in St. Louis with Andy Frisella on the MFCEO Podcast.

He and I immediately hit it off and I was extremely inspired by him, his story, and the positive changes he is making in his life.

This man is a Nike endorsed athlete although he doesn't look like your typical athlete. But, it's a testament to who he is, his infectious energy, and how powerful his past, present, and future are.

Right now, he's biking across the USA in order to share his story and help others live the life they're meant to live.

FFN 109: How We Stop School Shootings
21:42

Every time we turn around it seems like there's yet another school shooting. And, from what I can see, we're addressing this from a very surface level perspective. This is not about gun control. This is not about gun regulation. In fact, I don't even believe it's fully a gun problem. I think it's a symptom of the problem but not the problem.

Obviously, it has to do with the young men who are creating these situations. But more so, we ought to put the responsibility where it truly lies, which is on us as men. I'm going to explain what I mean by that. Bear with me, because I think you're going to agree at the end of this conversation that we've got a real problem with the way that we, as men, are showing up. And the symptom of that is school shootings and some of the other atrocities that we see in society today.

Before I get into the details, I do want to say again, this is not meant to be a gun debate but there are a couple of surface level issues that I do want to address first and foremost before we get deeper into this.

So, let's begin by addressing how we physically protect our kids when they're at school. There are some very simple solutions to this:

166: Why Men Should Compete | Jake Thompson
46:21

Competition is such a critical component of our journey to develop masculinity and manliness. Too bad it's often viewed as an unnecessary and antiquated way of operating by much of society. Heaven forbid we hold ourselves to a high standard and teach our children to keep score.

My guest today, Jake Thompson, Founder of Compete Every Day, makes the case for utilizing healthy competition as a critical factor in improving our lives. Today, we talk about why competition is so important, why executing to failure is so powerful, why losing does not necessarily equal "loser", and why men should compete every day.
SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

• Why competition is important
• How competition creates opportunities and builds capabilities
• What separates those who grow with competition and those who self-destruct
• How to compete at things that aren't a competition
• Why executing to failure is so important
• Why losing does not equal "loser"
• How to separate yourself from the pack
• How to find and develop value in yourself and others
• How to teach our children to use healthy competition for growth
• Why men are uniquely desirous to keep score and how to use that to our advantage

JAKE THOMPSON

My guest today is Jake Thompson. Jake and I met last year and an American Dream U event at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

I had the privilege of hearing him speak about the power and importance of competition and new that I wanted to have a deeper discussion with him about the concept.

The word, competition, seems to have a negative connotation surrounding it but I think you know as well as I do how powerful competition can actually be.

In a world that likes to take it easy and shy away from keeping score, Jake is encouraging more people to do it through his organization, Compete Every Day, and as a speaker, author, and coach.

FFN 108: Bridging the Integrity Gap
18:55

There is a gap in most men's lives and, in fact, I would argue in every man's life. This gap represents what we know we should be doing versus the things that we're actually doing. This is the integrity gap. The larger that gap is, the less fulfilled, the more unhappy, the more unpleasant, and depressed you will be. The smaller that gap, the more fulfillment, satisfaction, joy, contentment, happiness, wealth, and prosperity will come into your life.

There was a time in my life roughly 10 years ago where I had a huge integrity gap in my life (again, the gap between what I knew I should be doing and what I was actually doing). Here's the reality: Everybody that reads this, including you, knows what you should be doing.

If I were to ask anyone, "How do you lose weight?" 99.9% of people would say, "Well, I probably ought to eat a little bit better and exercise a little bit more." If I were to ask how to build more wealth in your life, everybody out there would say, "I need to find a way to make more money and/or spend less money."

These are not secrets. This is not rocket science here. Everybody knows what they should be doing, yet when you look around in society you can plainly see that many individuals are not living up to their potential. That's the integrity gap. It's knowing what you should be doing, and not doing it.

Living with this gap is the most unpleasant, unsatisfying, and miserable time in any person's life. But rather than just tell you that there's this big integrity gap and you need to figure out a way to bridge it (which you certainly do) I want to share with you a very simple formula that will help you bridge the gap.

165: Boys Adrift | Dr. Leonard Sax
50:31

Continuing on the theme from last week (because I believe this is such a critical topic right now), today we talk about the fact that young boys seem to be going astray. The school system is stacked against them, society seems to be dismissing masculinity altogether, and being a man is something that actually has to be defended.

My guest, Dr. Leonard Sax, joins me to talk about 5 factors driving an epidemic of unmotivated boys and underachieving young men, how the school system needs to be overhauled if we are to re-engage our boys, the dangers of endocrine disruptors in men's lives, and how boys are going adrift and, more importantly, how to get them back on track.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • 5 factors driving unmotivated boys and underachieving young men
  • How the school system is stacked against young men
  • Why boys are struggling with academic achievement
  • How the school system needs to be changed
  • The dangers on endocrine disruptors
  • The effect pornography has on young boys
  • The value of consequences for young men
  • How to help our boys find passion and purpose
  • How to re-engage our boys


DR. LEONARD SAX

I was introduced to Dr. Leonard Sax's work through my wife as she picked up a couple books on her pursuit to more effectively raise our boys.

She came across two books in particular: Boys Adrift and Why Gender Matters. After she got done reading them, she asked if I would. From the opening remarks, I knew this guy had some of the answers to the challenges we seem to be facing in raising young men.

Dr. Sax is an MIT graduate, a physician, and a psychologist and has been practicing for nearly 30 years. He is well-versed (as you'll hear today) in gender issues and the crisis our young men and women seem to be facing today.

FFN 107: Crafting the Perfect Morning Routine
18:50

Today, I want to talk about such an important topic and one which is easy to overlook simply because we’ve all heard about it so often. That said, I believe establishing a healthy morning routine is one of the most important things you can do during your day as it really establishes the benchmark, the framework, and the foundation for the way the rest of your day will go.

The reason that I think most people overlook (or can’t even stick to a morning routine) is because there’s so much advice about it already and we begin to believe that we have to pigeonhole ourselves into one way of doing it. Here’s what I’m here to tell you:  I’m going to share my morning routine. Now,  that doesn’t make it the morning routine. It simply means that it works for me. The most powerful thing if you can do with regards to your morning routine is to find something that works for you.

This is a process of experimentation. So, again, I’m going to share with you what works for me. If you like it, adopt it. If you don’t like it, don’t adopt it. If you like parts of it, adopt part of it. You get the idea.

164: A Man's Responsibility to Future Generations | Matt Labrum
52:55

This one is special to me. As most of you know, I grew up without a permanent father figure in my life. I've mentioned in the past that there was a select group of men who helped mold and shape me into the man that I am today. I'm not sure there is another man in my young life who was as influential as my guest today. His name is Matt Labrum and he was my high school football and baseball coach.

Today, we talk about his influence in my life and thousands of other young men's lives, the power of allowing kids to fail (including some failures of my own), why competitive sports are so valuable in a young man's life, why he cut his entire team from the football program, and a man's responsibility to future generations.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The power of allowing kids to fail
  • Why competition is critical for young men
  • How winners continue to find a way to win
  • The politics of raising children and coaching
  • Pros and cons of coaching your own children
  • Our obligation as men to give back to future generations
  • How sports are about so much more than the game
  • Why one high school football coach cut his entire team
  • The difference between being a parent and being a defender
  • How to raise boys through the power of competitive sports


MATT LABRUM

Men, I did this interview a little while ago and I've been anxiously waiting to release it to you. Every single one of us has some very influential people in our lives.

Today, I'm talking with probably the most influential man in mine, especially as a young boy learning to become a man. He is a high school educator. He has been teaching for more than two decades and, in addition to that, he is a high school baseball coach (when I was in school, he was the head football, basketball, and baseball coach).

He gained some national attention several years ago after cutting his entire football team from the program for grade and attendance issues, and how his team was showing up in the community and at school.

This is a man I admire and respect as he shaped a lot of who I was as a young man and who I am still becoming. He never took it easy on me. We talk about two experiences in particular during this conversation but I never doubted how much he cared about my progress and the progress of the boys under his care.

FFN 106: The Folly of "Zero Fu*ks Given"
14:39

You’ve likely heard of the phrase “zero fu*ks given.” While I can understand to a degree what anyone may be saying when they use that term, I can’t help but see the mistake in that line of thinking – especially for men. Your job is the exact opposite of that sentiment. Your job is to care about a lot, and be a man of value in the walls of your home, inside your business, and out in your community.

But if you walk around with a chip on your shoulder and take the stance that everyone else should leave you alone and there’s nothing you should really care about, I’ve got to think you’re missing a big element of what it means to be a man. Not to mention, you’re limiting your potential and the potential of those around you.

163: The True Cost of Liberty | Braxton McCoy
01:02:21

Guys, if you listen to just one of my podcast, please make it be this one. Today, I am joined by my friend and fellow soldier, Braxton McCoy. He and I served in Iraq together in 2005-2006. One day we were playing softball together and the next day, I hear he's been hit by a suicide bomber with multiple fractures and life-threatening injuries to himself and others. I didn't fully realize the extent of his injuries until this interview.

This one is raw, it's truthful, and it's extremely insightful when it comes to one soldier's perspective of war, responsibility, obligation, and liberty. We talk about the truths and fallacies of PTSD, overcoming the demons of war, how a near-death experience changes your perspective, and the true cost of liberty.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The true and great cost of liberty
  • One soldier's story of surviving a suicide bomber
  • The truths and fallacies of PTSD
  • Overcoming the demons of war
  • Finding new purpose in life
  • Why heroic soldiers don't consider themselves heroes
  • The power of writing down your thoughts and stories
  • Living for yourself and others
  • The after-effects of surviving a near-fatal suicide bomber
  • The power of responsibility and obligation
  • How near-death changes your perspective


BRAXTON MCCOY

As I mentioned before, I have my friend and fellow soldier, Braxton McCoy on the show today.

We've lost touch over the past 10 years or so since we served together in Iraq but when I found out he had written a book about our experience and, more specifically, his experience in Iraq, I knew that this would make for a powerful conversation.

After more than a decade of physical therapy and more surgeries than I care to think about, Braxton has regained most of his strength and rebounded emotionally from an extremely traumatic situation.

He has twice served as National Advocate for the Army Wounded Warrior Program, and twice as Veterans’ Advocate for the Coalition of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans in the District of Columbia. His four years as an advocate were focused on getting veterans back to work, as a meaningful way to outflank Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

In 2013, Braxton McCoy started Warrior Employment Project, a non-profit designed to connect veteran families-in-need with CEO’s and CIO’s leading to the veterans’ employment.

FFN 105: Leaders are Readers
15:51

Some of the greatest men the world has ever known are voracious readers. Teddy Roosevelt was said to read a book every morning. General James Mattis is said to have a library of over 600 books. Bill Gates reads a book a week. Mark Cuban reads for 3 hours every day. Elon Musk was once asked how he learned to build rockets, to which he replied, “I read books.”

Now, I’m not suggesting that by simply reading books, you will achieve the types of results these men have achieved but, reading and acquiring new knowledge through the written word is something that seems to be a common thread line through most, if not all, successful people.

Today, I’ll share with you why that is and I’ll also be issuing you a challenge we’re going to be holding over the next 30 days.

162: Tapping Into Your Hidden Networks | David Burkus
49:50

There is no such thing as the self-made man. While I can certainly understand and even appreciate the gesture, the truth is that every successful man had some help along the way. That help usually comes in the form of others.

My guest today is David Burkus. He is the author of Friend of a Friend: Understanding the Hidden Networks That Can Transform Your Life and Career. Today, we talk about the power of "weak ties," how to leverage "preferential attachment," how to become a super connector, and how to tap into your hidden networks.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • How to find your hidden networks
  • The power of "weak ties"
  • How to develop silos and clusters of networks
  • How to become a super connector
  • Why building teams are critical to your networking success
  • How to leverage "preferential attachment"
  • The difference between mixers and activities
  • The science of networking
  • Connecting over strange ties
  • How to develop stronger social capital
  • Why the adage, "who you know" isn't the whole story
  • Overcoming and utilizing the "illusion of majority"
  • The benefits of becoming a network broker


DAVID BURKUS


Today, I have the honor of introducing you to my friend, David Burkus.

As you might imagine, I have the opportunity to talk with hundreds and hundreds of successful men but David is someone who stands out to me as one of the most intelligent, articulate, and well-researched guests we've had on.

He is a best-selling author, a speaker, and associate professor at Oral Roberts University. In his new book (which I highly recommend), David offers readers a new perspective on how to grow their networks and build key connections—one based on the science of human behavior, not rote networking advice.

He’s delivered keynotes to the leaders of Fortune 500 companies and the future leaders of the United States Naval Academy. His TED Talk has been viewed over 1.8 million times and he is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review.

I want to talk with you about building a thriving tribe. Now, this may be a conversation geared towards those who are working to build their own business/social media tribes like we’ve done here but, really, it’s for any man who wants to lead. And, all men are leaders.

So, whether you’re leading a tribe of hundreds of thousands that spans the entire planet (like we are here), or you’ve been tasked with leading a new project at work, or you’ve got a wife and children to protect, provide, and preside for, or you’re a coach or school teacher, or in the military, or going to school, we all have tribes to lead. Today, I’m going to walk you through a few key insights that have helped me build this tribe significantly larger and more significant than I ever could have imagined.

161: Saved From Success | Dale Partridge
48:19

Today, we talk about something we've never directly addressed on this podcast, God. Now, before you tune me out based on that word alone, I believe that regardless of what you believe, there is something to be learned in every conversation and every experience.

That's why, when my friend, Dale Partridge reached out to talk about his new book, Saved From Success, I knew I needed to have him on. At the risk of losing a few listeners and receiving a few disapproving emails, I thought this was a conversation worth having. We talk about Dale's definition of success compared to much of society's, why men are hesitant to surrender to a higher power, how to develop a life of significance and meaning, and how all of us can be saved from success.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • How Dale defines success versus much of society
  • Why men are hesitant to "surrender" to a higher power
  • Specific money rules all men should learn to follow
  • What does it mean to be "mature" and how to develop it
  • Why we've become a culture where our youth are worshipped
  • How a man begins to believe in God
  • Where morality comes from
  • Why the fear of death can be both a positive and negative
  • Overcoming the "Gap of Integrity"
  • How to develop a life of significance and meaning
  • Why society views children as nothing more than a hindrance
  • Becoming more influential, the right way
  • What it truly means to be free


DALE PARTRIDGE

Today, I have the honor of introducing you to my friend and repeat guest, Dale Partridge. I had him on the show in June of last year to talk about turning your passion into your profession.

About a month or so ago, he reached out to me regarding his new book and I thought it would make for an interesting conversation.

For those of you who may not know, Dale is an extremely successful entrepreneur and the founder of Startup Camp, which teaches aspiring entrepreneurs the ropes when it comes to building businesses.

I've been following him and his message for a long time and we've managed to build a friendship through our mutual work in calling men to step up to be men in their homes, their communities, their business, and every other facet of their lives.

160: The Value Proposition | Tyler Harris
44:35

Adding value is a phrase we'll all heard. Like any word the marketers of the world get ahold of, it begins to lose some of it's meaning when it's overused. But that overuse doesn't make it any less valuable as a strategy for growth and success.

My guest today, Tyler Harris, is using the idea of adding value to create a hugely successful social media business on top of his already existing success in the financial services industry. Today, we talk about how personal responsibility lies at the foundation of success, how and why every man should develop more presence, why people are starving for the truth, and how the value proposition is so powerful.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Striking a balance in life
  • The power of consistency
  • Determining what course of action is best for you
  • Why you should lead with insane levels of value
  • How personal responsibility is the foundation of achievement
  • Why you should avoid playing not to lose
  • Why the truth is so refreshing to people
  • Using social media as an accountability tool
  • How to avoid mismanaging your time
  • Developing presence
  • The qualities to look for in team members

TYLER HARRIS

Gentlemen, I have the honor of introducing you to someone I've been following for a little while now, Tyler Harris.

I've been extremely impressed by his level of dedication and discipline when it comes to building a new business using the power of social media. I talk with a lot of people who want to build a movement using the social tools at our disposal but I talk with very few who are doing it in a way that actually moves the needle.

And, as I got to know more about Tyler's story, I can see why. He's been hugely successful in establishing relationships and putting in a ton of work in order to thrive in the financial services industry (which is a very hard market to break into).

Now, he's applying those same principles to his new endeavors and sharing them with us today.

FFN 102: Fuel to the Fire
15:00

I spend a lot of time talking to men on a daily basis. One thing I’m always intrigued by is the fire that I can see (or can’t see) simply by looking into their eyes. It’s been said that “the eyes are the window to the soul.” If that’s true, you can tell a lot about a man and his passion and enthusiasm through a quick glance and connection of the eyes.

Unfortunately, all too often what I see when I look is lifelessness, soullessness, and a general complacency and signs of defeat. I can certainly understand and even relate to that feeling. For a lot of years, I felt the exact same way. I occasionally look at old pictures of myself and I recognize a defeated man when I see him.

Let’s face it, life is tough. It gets challenging. It gets routine, boring, and monotonous at times. And, what I experience more often than not is men who allow those circumstances to defeat them. I think one of the biggest dangers in society today is a lack of men who are passionate, fired up, engaged in creating a meaningful life for themselves and those around them.

If you’re one of these guys who has lost the passion for life, have hope. The fire is there, inside you. You just need to add a little fuel to it to get it stoked again. Here are several strategies for adding fuel to the fire:

159: Embrace the Suffering | Rorke Denver
54:16

Suffering isn't typically something people like to attract in their lives but the reality is you cannot fully escape it. It's part of the human experience. So, rather than run from the unexpected suffering we're all likely to face, my guest, Navy SEAL Commander Rorke Denver suggests we run towards it and embrace it instead.

Today, we talk about the power of identifying and living by a set of ethos, how to create an extremely powerful ecosystem for success, when you should follow the rules and when you should break them, and how you can embrace the suffering life is bound to present.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The power of living by a set of ethos
  • Whether leadership is natural or developed
  • How to create an incredible team culture
  • Why suffering is crucial
  • Developing a powerful ecosystem
  • Why you should "subject yourself to something bigger"
  • Establishing non-negotiables
  • The three pillars of manhood
  • When you should follow the rules and when you shouldn't
  • The art and science of leadership
  • The qualities to look for in team members


RORKE DENVER

I was at an event about a month ago and my guest's name was brought up to me three times in about ten minutes. I was intrigued so I looked him up and new I needed to connect with him.

Every once in a while, you make a new connection that feels more like old friends than new acquaintances. And, that's how I felt when I started talking with Rorke Denver (this interview is the first time we've talked).

This man is truly incredible. He's a Navy SEAL, Ranger qualified, New York Times Bestselling Author. And, on top of all that, he starred in the movie, Act of Valor, and has since gone on to create an amazing business focused on the idea of Ever Onward.

He's taking all the lessons he's learned and sharing them with the world so they too can learn what it takes to lead their own lives. And, speaking of leadership, this man is an incredible leader (you'll hear that in the interview) and has since become a friend of mine.

I believe in finding and connecting with high-quality men and Rorke is among the best.

FFN 101: Lord of the Flies
18:00

There seems to be this strange shift in society today where we, collectively, have begun to give more credit to children than they deserve. Historically, adults have made the decisions and been the influential party in the direction of relevant culture and policy. Now, in some sort of weird, reality version of Lord of the Flies, we’ve begun to allow our children to dictate the tone of the conversation and set the framework for some very serious issues all of us will be impacted by.

Now, before I get into what I’m going to share with you today, allow me to explain a couple things, a disclaimer if you will. First, I do not believe children should make the rules or set the tone of adult conversations. This does not mean I don’t care about our kids or have empathy and/or compassion for their perspectives and experiences. Second, some of our children are very intelligent. There’s no denying that. Still, they lack the life experience required to fully understand the ramifications of their limited experience. Third, I am not of the mindset that children should be seen and not heard. I listen to my children (and the children in my community I have a responsibility for) every day. That said, I as the adult, make the decisions.

158: The 1% Rule | Tommy Baker
50:31

Most of us tend to focus on that one big, audacious goal we all have. The problem with that is it may be so far out there or so unrealistic that subconsciously we believe we can't ever achieve it.

My guest and friend, Tommy Baker, makes the case for focusing more on the process than the result. In fact, in his new book, he teaches how to fall in love with the process and achieve our wildest dreams. Today, we talk about overcoming the law of diminishing returns, how to effectively set goals, the greatest myths of achievement, and how to harness the power of the 1% rule.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • How to fall in love with the process as opposed to the end result
  • Overcoming the law of diminishing returns
  • How to effectively set goals
  • Why focusing on the "how" is critical
  • Developing and exercising faith
  • The myths of achievement
  • The power of a why, vision, purpose, and mission
  • The 3-step code for achieving more
  • Why auditing your life and implementing "auto-deletion" is so powerful
  • How focusing on death helps you live better
  • The truth about massive expectations and unrealistic goals

 

TOMMY BAKER

Gents, my guest today is return guest, Mr. Tommy Baker. He's been on the show once before but has since written a new book and I knew, based on feedback we got from our previous conversation, we needed to have him back on.

If you haven't listened to the first episode, you'll soon hear why Tommy and I get along so well. His energy is second to none and his enthusiasm and engagement with life are infectious.

He is the founder of the Resist Average Academy and podcast and has a passion for helping people achieve more in every single area of their lives.

Originally, a fitness coach, he's since expanded his own capacity for growth and expansion and is more focused now on helping people get their mindset right. His first book is called Unresolution and the follow up is what you'll hear all about today, called The 1% Rule.

FFN 100: The Demise of Responsibility
17:22

Take a look around and I think you’ll agree with me that there seems to be more and more men who are shirking their responsibilities as men. It’s easy to understand why. It’s always harder (at least initially) to accept responsibility. If you do, it means you’ll actually have to exert yourself.

You’ll have to go into the office a little earlier. You’ll have to stay a little later. You’ll miss the latest season of Game of Thrones (or whatever series happens to be on right now). It means you’ll have to volunteer to help a neighbor in need. Or serve in your church or community. It means you’ll have to put your own hobby on hold and help your child with his or her homework. It means that the hunting trip will have to wait because your business or family needs your attention.

Of course, when I put it that way, no sane human being would want to accept more responsibility. So, what do we do instead? We complain about rights and entitlements. It’s pathetic.

“It’s my right to free health insurance.”
“It’s my right to a good job.”
“I’m entitled to my wife’s support.”
“My boss owes me a promotion.”
“That company has to serve me the way I want to be served.”

It’s selfish. It’s weak. And, most importantly, it’s a detriment to yourself and society as a whole. What happens when the majority of people begin to demand “rights” without a willingness to accept responsibility for securing those rights? I think we all know the answer to that question. And, just in case you don’t, the answer is, “it collapses.”

156: How Hunting Makes You a Better Man | Adam Greentree
44:12

I went on my first hunt just last year and I can tell you that it was one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had. I have another trip planned in a couple weeks and I already know it's going to push me and expand me in new ways as a man.

Although I wouldn't call myself a hunter just yet, I am learning and inspired by men like my friend and guest today, Adam Greentree. He's been hunting in Australia for most of his life and I really wanted to get his perspective because it's one we just don't hear a lot. Today, we talk about why adventure is so important in the lives of men, developing an open mind to new ideas and experiences, knowing what battles to fight and when to make a stand, and how hunting can make you a better man.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

• How hunting makes you a better man
• The value of hunting on the pursuit of mastery
• How to overcome challenges, obstacles, hurdles
• Why adventure is so important in the lives of men
• Developing an open mind to new ideas and experiences
• How hunting helped Adam create a "new awakening" for himself
• Knowing what battles to fight and when to make a stand
• The conservation efforts lead by hunters
• The critical importance of providing for your family
• How hunting can make you more passionate and appreciative of life
• Dealing with hate and criticism

ADAM GREENTREE

Gentlemen, today I have the honor of introducing you to my friend, Mr. Adam Greentree.

Adam is an avid bowhunter from Australia, he's the host of the Bowhunter's Life Podcast, and is someone I admire and respect for his dedication to his craft and his quest for mastery when it comes to all things bowhunting.

I've learned so much from this guy in such a short period of time and he's inspired me to live a life of more adventure and to pick up a bow and see what the fuss is all about for myself.

I'm also blown away with his hunting schedule. The amount of hunts this guy participates in is unreal. And, how he does it and the adventures he takes part of will definitely inspire you to tap back into your primal roots.

I’ve received a lot of messages since we published, Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men about what it took to write the book, the challenges, the victories, the things I did well, and the things I didn’t do so well in making this book available to you.

Let’s face it, writing a book isn’t an easy process. It’s a painstakingly slow journey that really causes you to question your own sanity. Sometimes you run across days you feel 100% committed and, other days, you want to quit and throw in the towel.

So, since I’ve received so many questions about the process, I figured I’d give you some insight and you can decide from there if writing a book is something you want to take part it. We’ll cover the reason you need a strong “why,” the actual process (including the tools I used), the timeline you should follow, what format to publish in, and whether you should find a publisher or self-publish.

156: Calling in Your Social Capital | Jordan Harbinger
46:33

One year ago, I had my good friend, Jordan Harbinger on the show to talk about building social capital. Today, he's back on the show to talk about calling in that social capital.

Through a series of unfortunate events with his business, he's had to reach out to his network, connections, and friends and request help in building a new business from the ground up. Without his work in building a strong network in the past, Jordan admits he'd be in a much worse position today. In this episode, we talk about why keeping score in relationships is a bad idea, how to get over asking people for help, something Jordan calls "systematic network maintenance," and how to call in your social capital.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why keeping score in relationships is a bad idea

  • How to build a network without the expectation of anything in return
  • Why people choose to follow certain people

  • How to maintain consistent contact with your network

  • How to get over asking people for help

  • Getting comfortable with helping others

  • Getting comfortable with asking help from others
  • 
The strategy of "opportunistic network maintenance"

  • The strategy of "systematic network maintenance"

  • How to use content management systems to enhance your social capital

  • Specific strategies for building out and asking for help from your network

 

JORDAN HARBINGER

Today, I have the privilege of introducing you to my friend, yet again, Jordan Harbinger. This is his third visit on the show and every single conversation with him has been packed with value and wisdom.

Jordan reached out to me a month or so ago after having left his previous business, The Art of Charm, to inform me that he was striking out on his own.



I know a lot of you are familiar with that company and probably follow it as well. You probably also know that Jordan had a falling out with the other founders and found himself needed to tap into his social capital, which he's been building for years.



The thing that impresses me most about Jordan is that it is apparent he applies what he teaches and, as much as I wish we were having this conversation under different circumstances, in this conversation you'll hear exactly how he's going to crush his new business venture using the skills, tools, and strategies he's been teaching for more than a decade in the business.

FFN 098: Makers and Takers
15:18

There are two types of people in this world: makers and takers. The reality is that we’ve all been a bit of both in our lives. But I think more and more I’m seeing the pendulum switch in society from most of us being makers to most of us being takers.

It’s not sustainable. It’s not healthy. And, frankly, it’s not manly. So today, I thought I’d share why being a maker is not only your job as a man but it’s much more profitable and fulfilling way to live. And, I’ll also share five very practical tips/mindsets for turning yourself into more of a maker.

155: Supporting Our Nation's Warriors | Phil Randazzo
43:44

I spent time in the military, including an active-duty tour to Iraq in 2005-2006. I know how hard it can be transition from service to civilian life. One of the most challenging things for me was to go from having a clear sense of direction and purpose to not knowing what my next battle was. I know a lot of our nation's warriors feel the same.

Today I talk with my good friend, Phil Randazzo, about his 15-year mission to help our military members successfully transition into civilian life. I believe so much in what he and his organization are doing that I now sit on the board of advisors for American Dream U. Today we talk about why transitioning out of the military is so challenging, what our military members should be doing prior to leaving service, how they can find a new battle to fight, and how we can support our nation's warriors.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why transitioning out of the military is so challenging
  • Why our veterans discount their experience from the military
  • What obligations and responsibilities we have to take care of our warriors
  • How building a new tribe is critical for veterans
  • The best steps to take prior to transitioning from service
  • How to develop a new sense of purpose beyond the military
  • Why suicide rates are so high among veterans and what to do about it
  • How to find a new battle to fight
  • How to harness technology to launch a successful second career
  • Business owners' perspectives on hiring military members
  • What valuable translatable skills military members possess

PHIL RANDAZZO

Gentlemen, I can't even begin to describe how excited I am to introduce you to my friend Phil Randazzo.

Him and I met about a year ago through some mutual acquaintances and since began working together with his organization, American Dream U.

Phil is an extremely successful business owner working in the financial services industry but more important than that is his 15-year journey to help transition our nation's warriors. I can tell you that this is a man who has his heart in the right place and is genuinely concerned with helping our veterans.

He's been invited to the White House, testified in front of Congress on the behalf of veterans, been given a key to the city of Las Vegas, and commissioned as a member of the Veterans Service Commission. So, needless to say, he's committed to the work and I couldn't be more proud to be part of his organization and call him a friend.

FFN 097: Boys Need Dads
16:15

I’m sure you’re well-aware of the drug abuse, suicide, and violent crime rates with regards to young men. It’s all over the headlines these days and, with the latest school shooting in Florida, it’s become impossible to ignore. There is a real problem here.

And, while the rest of the world focuses on gun control and legislation in hopes of putting a bandaid over the problems that are becoming all too common, I’d encourage us here within the Order of Man to look at the root of the problem, which I believe is fatherless homes.

Let’s take a look at some of the statistics:

  • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census).
  • 85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes (Center for Disease Control).
  • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes (National Principals Association Report).
  • 70% of youths in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes (U.S. Dept. of Justice, Sept. 1988).
  • 85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes (Fulton Co. Georgia, Texas Dept. of Correction).

I could go on and on about this but I think you can see that there is a problem with fathers being absent in the home. I do want to be very clear here, this is not intended to put down women who are raising children on their own. My mom did for much of my early life and she did a terrific job. That said, the facts are the facts. And this is what the data is telling us.

I know I could also talk with you about the impacts on girls when fathers are absent but for the sake of this discussion, I want to talk about boys exclusively because it’s boys who are perpetuating much of the problems we see in society. I believe the solution is homes where fathers are present and engaged.

What I wanted to do today is connect the dots between boys and fathers and why this relationship is so critical for the well-being of our sons and society as a whole. Here are 5 reasons why dads are needed now more than ever.

154: Own the Day, Own Your Life | Aubrey Marcus
46:56

So many of us focus on the end result - some noble goal we wish to pursue. And, while there's value in knowing where you're going, my guest today makes the case for measuring your successes in the smallest unit of measurement possible.

Most of you know Aubrey Marcus, founder of Onnit. He is back again to talk about how he has managed to build so much success in his life. Today, we talk about the key to starting your day off right, the benefits of unconventional training, napping, supplements, weird lunches, and how to own the day and own your life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

• Why focusing on the smallest unit of measurement is critical
• The key to starting the day correctly
• The power of hydrating, breathing, and freezing

AUBREY MARCUS

I have a repeat guest for you today and one most of you know.

Aubrey Marcus is the founder of Onnit, which specializes in food, supplements, equipment, and apparel.

The more I get to know this guy, the more I'm intrigued about how he produces results in his life and the interesting and sometimes strange way in which he experiments with everything that he can.

He's a multi-sport athlete, a philosopher, a podcaster, a business owner, and author, and somewhat of a scientist when it comes to achieving total human optimization in his own life and the millions of people he's working hard to inspire.

FFN 096: 10 Steps to Reclaim Masculinity
15:11

We’ve all heard the adage that you are the average of your five closest friends. I don’t take that too literally but I do know that when I surround myself with powerful people, life changes. There was a time in my life where I lacked any real intentionality about who I surrounded myself with and the results (or lack thereof) showed.

Since those days, I’m made a deliberate and strategic decision to find people who are thriving in ways I want to thrive and put into action some strategies that have connected me with New York Times Bestselling Authors, elite warriors and athletes, multi-millionaire business owners, and, frankly, some of the most successful people on the planet.

I think we can all agree that men and masculinity are on the defensive. There is a disturbing trend in society that says we are simply not needed. This could not be further from the truth. And, unfortunately, it will take something catastrophic happening before society, as a whole, realizes the value of strong and noble men.

I’m not interested in waiting until that happens because I believe our job as men is to provide, even if it isn’t all that appreciated. Unfortunately, we’ll continue to see the ramifications of a lack of men and masculinity: suicide rates, drug use, violent crimes, school drop out rate, child abuse, etc.

So, in an attempt to begin the dialogue around reversing the trend, I made a post on Instagram with ten steps to reclaiming masculinity. Here they are:

153: Developing Physical and Emotional Intelligence | Josh Trent
45:35

We all know health and wellness are important when it comes to stepping into our full potential but most of us tend to think it ends with eating right and exercising. While those elements are certainly important on our road to a healthy life, it goes well beyond lifting weights and eating salads.

My guest today is Josh Trent. He is the founder of Wellness Force and is focused on helping people across the planet lead healthy lives. Today we talk about connecting the head and heart, how to identify which beliefs are serving you, how to harness both the beast and the spirit inside all men, and how to develop physical and emotional intelligence.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • What the term "wellness" actually means
  • How to develop physical and emotional intelligence
  • How to connect "head to the heart"
  • How to identify what beliefs and actions are serving you
  • The power of a technology fast
  • How to develop more confidence
  • How to reconcile ownership and kindness
  • How to use the past for forward progression
  • How to harness both the beast and the spirit
  • Using the process of reflection for growth
  • Why transforming the mind leads to a transformation everywhere else

 

JOSH TRENT

My guest today is the founder of Wellness Force, Josh Trent. Josh and I met at the Spartan World Championship and since the minute I met him, I've been blown away with his energy and enthusiasm for life and the desire to live it well.

Throughout his 14 years inside the health and wellness Josh has helped thousands of men understand and develop physical and emotional intelligence.

His knowledge and expertise goes well beyond what every other "fitness guru" will tell you as he takes a more well-rounded approach to developing the body, mind, and soul.

He's worked with and interview hundreds of the sharpest minds in the wellness industry and has been on his own personal journey and transformation which you'll hear more of in our interview.

FFN 095: Connecting with Powerful People
15:08

We’ve all heard the adage that you are the average of your five closest friends. I don’t take that too literally but I do know that when I surround myself with powerful people, life changes. There was a time in my life where I lacked any real intentionality about who I surrounded myself with and the results (or lack thereof) showed.

Since those days, I’m made a deliberate and strategic decision to find people who are thriving in ways I want to thrive and put into action some strategies that have connected me with New York Times Bestselling Authors, elite warriors and athletes, multi-millionaire business owners, and, frankly, some of the most successful people on the planet.

The reason I want you to listen very closely to this episode is that I’m not particularly anything special. There are a lot of men out there who believe that the reason I’ve been able to connect with these people is because I’m successful. Guys, that just isn’t true. I may be experiencing some success now but when I started Order of Man, I had absolutely no track record of success. I’ve simply figured some things out and executed relentlessly.

So this isn’t something only extraordinary people can do. Whether you’re achieving huge levels of success of none at all, everyone can implement the five steps I’m going to share with you and do the same thing I’ve done.

The first point I need to make is that all of these five steps have the foundational element of adding value. I want you to focus on serving others and enhancing their lives. That’s it. At it’s most basic level, that is how you succeed and position yourself in the company with the right people. But let’s break this down even further.

152: The Future of Higher Education | Adam Braun
41:24

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.

FFN 094: Solve Your Own Problems
13:32

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.

151: Know Fear | Tony Blauer
44:01

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.

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.

150: Own the Dash | Dakota Meyer
39:10

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.

FFN 092: The Myth of "Toxic Masculinity"
10:09

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.

149: Purpose-Driven Entrepreneurship | Pete Roberts
44:01

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.

FFN 091: A Crash Course in Confidence
09:50

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.

148: True Transformation Through Exercise and Nutrition | Josiah Novak
45:23

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.

FFN 090: A Code of Conduct

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.

147: Self-Mastery through Bow Hunting | John "Dud" Dudley
47:01

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.

146: A Life of Adventure | Laval St. Germain
44:45

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.

FFN 088: The Best Investment You Can Make
11:18

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.

145: Retire Early | Deacon Hayes
42:23

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.

FFN 087: Overcoming Guilt
10:30

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.

144: Living Your Full Potential | Bedros Keuilian
41:16

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

BEDROS KEUILIAN

FFN 086: 5 Books Every Man Should Read in 2018
09:27

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.

143: The Appearance of Power | Tanner Guzy
48:01

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
  • Where confidence stems from
  • How to improve your style without having to wear a suit
  • How to maintain practically and still look good
  • How to overcome the need for validation in the way you look
  • How to develop and maintain influence with others
  • Why every man should focus on improving his style


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.

FFN 085: Activate the Hunt | Collin Cottrell
31:58

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.

142: Developing, Operating, and Expanding a Business | Cameron Herald
42:23

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.

FFN 084: Be The Patriarch
09:51

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.

141: Live Life on Your Terms | Hunter McIntyre
41:30

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.

09:11

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.

FFN 082: Every man a Marketer
11:40

Whether you’re trying to win the girl, get a job promotion, or get new clients, it’s critical that you wrap your head around the idea that you are a marketer. Today, I’m going to share with you why this mindset is so important, some of the pitfalls we should avoid, and some very simple strategies you can implement to help you get more in your life.

I know there’s a lot of guys who think that they’re not marketers or that somehow this is a shady way of looking at things but I can assure you it’s not. If you have a product (whether it’s you or some service or offering you have), you have an obligation to bring it to the market and share it with the world.

139: Wild at Heart | John Eldredge
42:11

"Deep in his heart every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue." This is one of my favorite quotes about masculinity and, if you've been following us for long, you've heard it from me a thousand times.

Today, I am honored and have the privilege of talking with the author of that quote and one of my top 5 most recommended books on masculinity (Wild at Heart), John Eldredge. We talk about the secret to a man's soul, the single question every man needs to have answered, society's attack on gender, how to embrace authentic masculinity, and why every man is wild at heart.

SHOWNOTES

  • The secret to a man's soul
  • The single question EVERY man needs answered
  • Society's attack on gender
  • How to embrace authentic masculinity
  • How masculinity is earned
  • How to overcome being a poser
  • Pornography and the disintegrating family's effect on men and society
  • How to find out who you are
  • Why rites of passage are so important
  • How to focus more on your internal world than your external world
  • The collapse of gender
  • Permission to be men
  • The masculine virtues


JOHN ELDREDGE

I am honored to introduce you to my guest today, Mr. John Eldredge. When I set out on this journey to become a better man, his book Wild at Heart was one of my go-to resources for an understanding of who I am as a man and how men show up in this world.
At the time, I never thought I'd actually have the chance to have a conversation with him but after some back and forth and getting our schedules pinned down, we were finally able to lock something in.

John is an author, a counselor, and a teacher. He's been working with men and teaching them how to transform their lives for more than two decades. It's interesting to see that the book, Wild at Heart still strikes a nerve with men across the world more than 15 years after he wrote it. This is a testament to John's understanding of what we, as men, are really after in our lives and how to become the men we are meant to be.

FFN 081: Humility is Strength
10:51

A lot of men seem to believe that arrogance is what makes you strong. It's not true. An over-inflated ego opens up to all sorts of blindspots. Where arrogance makes you weak, humility makes you strong.

138: Political Correctness, Technology, and Capitalism | Sal, Adam, and Justin with MindPump
01:07:01

Gents, today is a different kind of podcast and it's unlike everything we've ever done before. Last month I had the opportunity to head to the Spartan World Championships in Tahoe and was able to sit down with my friends, Sal, Adam, and Justin from MindPump Media.

They are a fitness company but we don't talk about anything fitness related as we sat down for an hour or so to talk about political correctness, the future of technology including planned communities and cryptocurrency, capitalism, and just about everything in between. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a conversation about everything and nothing with the guys.

SHOW NOTES

  • The plague of offense and political correctness
  • Why we're wired to look for bad news
  • The value of analyzing objective data
  • Understanding reality vs. what others are trying to portray
  • How capitalism creates harmony
  • State of current affairs
  • The future of planned communities and commerce
  • Why listening to opposing views is critical for growth
  • The advantages and disadvantages of modern technology
  • The relationship between gun ownership and gun violence
  • How to shut down bad ideas
  • The pitfalls of the two-party system
  • The future of cryptocurrency
  • The negative effects of artificially raising minimum wage

 

SAL, ADAM, AND JUSTIN WITH MINDPUMP

I've got three guests for you today, Sal Di Stefano, Adam Schafer, and Justin Andrews. They are the founders of MindPump Media which is a media company dedicated to giving accurate and entertaining information about the media industry, what works, what doesn't, and how you can get control of your health.

These guys have a combined experience of over 40 years in the industry and, although we don't talk a thing about fitness today, you can tell but the depth of the conversation we do have, these guys are very intelligent and extremely well-informed.

In a world that seems to regurgitate the same basic health information over and over again, Sal, Adam and Justin are extremely entertaining and bring a whole new perspective to the way we look at fitness, nutrition, and health.

FFN 080: Embrace Discomfort
10:38

Take a look around society. We see a lot of weak people. Mentally, people allow the smallest of circumstances to get ahold of them and dictate their actions. Emotionally, they their emotions to get the better of them and, physically, people are unhealthy.

If you have any hope of becoming the man you are meant to be, you are going to need to learn to develop strength in each of those areas. And, the only way to get physically, mentally, and emotionally, is to embrace discomfort.

137: The Fight Against Child Sex Trafficking | Tim Ballard
37:51

Today, I've got a different podcast for you today. My guest is Tim Ballard and he is the founder of Operation Under Ground Railroad, a non-profit organization designed to save children around the world from child sex trafficking.

My wife initially introduced me to Tim's work and, after following him for sometime, I'm inspired by the good he's doing in the world in the wake of some horrific atrocities more men need to know about. Today, we talk about stories of his team's rescues, how these young children are being helped to recover, how to find a calling in life, how to avoid "the flinch" when undercover, and the fight against child sex trafficking.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The seriousness of child sex trafficking
  • Stories of children rescues
  • "Aftercare" and helping children recover
  • How to find a calling in life
  • How to avoid the "flinch" when undercover
  • The men behind these rescues
  • How meaningful work changes a man
  • How to rally people around a cause
  • Identification and extraction tactics and efforts
  • How you can get involved


TIM BALLARD

My guest today is Tim Ballard, the founder of Operation Underground Railroad, a non-profit designed to rescue the victims of child sex trafficking.

To date, Tim and his team have rescued 745 victims and assisted in the arrest of 365 traffickers around the world.

Originally, Tim worked for 12 years as a Special Agent with the Department of Homeland Security but became frustrated with the red tape and inability he had to actually remove these children from the horrible situations he was responsible for investigating.

In 2013, he left the department and founded Operation Underground Railroad. Today, we're going to talk about that process, the good he's now doing in the world, how to take action on the problems you see in the world, and how you can get involved in this fight.

136: Lewis Howes | The Mask of Masculinity
50:00

Recognizing that we, as men, wear masks might just be one of the most difficult self-evaluation processes we can go through. It's difficult because sometimes we've been wearing a mask for so long that it actually becomes part of who we are and how we define ourselves.

My guest today, New York Times Bestselling Author Lewis Howes, joins me to talk about why men are failing so many benchmarks, how to recognize and confront what is holding you back, why the masks we wear hinder our personal growth, and the 9 masks of masculinity.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • What is the Mask of Masculinity
  • Why men are underperforming in every benchmark
  • The 9 masks we as men tend to wear
  • How to recognize which mask you might be wearing
  • The common thread between all the masks
  • How to confront the things that hold you back
  • How to stop defining yourself by the mask you wear
  • How our masks hinder personal growth
  • How to embrace discomfort and vulnerability
  • How to avoid overcompensating for weaknesses
  • How to better understand your emotions
  • Which mask I tend to wear

LEWIS HOWES

My guest today is New York Times Bestselling Author, Mr Lewis Howes.

I know a ton of you are already familiar with his work and what he's up to with his own company and podcast (which is listened to millions of times per month), The School of Greatness.

We had Lewis on the show a while back but since then, he has released his newest book, The Mask of Masculinity.

What I enjoyed a lot about this book is that Lewis really pulled back the curtain in his own life and you can tell by the way he's analyzed who he is and what makes him tick that this is a process he doesn't just talk about, this is a process that he's actually gone through and uncovered for himself.

Lewis Howes had a lot of success as a professional athlete (which hints at the mask he was wearing) only to find himself injured and wondering how he could redefine himself and tap into who he really is.

Gentlemen, gear up, prepare to challenge some thoughts about who you are, and let's unpack the idea of the mask of masculinity.

FFN 078: Every Man Needs a Battle to Fight
10:30

As a lot of you already know, I interviewed Navy SEAL and New York Times Bestselling author, Jocko Willink, earlier this week. One thing that he said that really stuck out to me was the difference between former military members who are able to maintain their discipline after the service and those who aren’t.

I have personally seen both. I’ve seen veterans who make a seamless transition into civilian life and I see those that really flounder and I’ve often wondered what the difference was as well.

What Jocko said is that the difference between the two is whether or not they’ve found a new mission.

During my time in the military, the mission was always very clear to me. We were instructed on the objective, given our marching orders, then left to carry them out. But, when you transition out of the military, there’s no one to give you any marching orders and you’re left on your own to figure it all out.

What’s interesting to me is that one of my favorite authors, John Eldredge (who, by the way, just agreed to come on the podcast) happens to be the author of one of my favorite quotes.

He says, “Deep in his heart, every man longs for a battle to fight, and adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue.” I want to focus the conversation today on the first component of that quote, a battle to fight.

Men are warriors. Not all warriors have to be battle proven in war but I do believe it’s in our nature to look for problems, to be on the lookout for the enemy or, at a minimum, a threat to our livelihood and the people we have a responsibility for.

I look around in society today and I see men who have no real sense of direction or purpose. I know you do to - maybe it’s you. You look into their eyes and you can see that all the enthusiasm and excitement they may have once had is all but gone.

I would argue it’s because these men, as Jocko would say, have no mission or, as John Eldredge would say, they have no battle to fight.

So today, I’m going to encourage you to pick a fight – to pick a battle. I don’t mean a literal fight with someone or a group of people. I mean that I want you to take a look around at society and engage in a cause worth fighting for. This could be a career calling, a fitness journey, the family you’re working to provide, protect, and preside for. I really don’t care what it is but I do want to give you four steps to engaging in the fight of your life.

As I talk about these four steps, I’m going to give you a lot of questions as opposed to answers. I can’t decide what your battle is. You have to decide that for yourself and the best way for me to help you do that is to give you some questions to ponder and consider.

IDENTIFY THE ENEMY

The first step in picking a battle to fight is to talk a look around society and identify what you see as being wrong with the world. Write down everything that comes to mind. In a way, you’re identifying the enemy. Not a literal enemy but the thing you’re going to fight against.

For men, 3 years ago, I saw that there was a real problem with the state of affairs for men. Like I mentioned before, I’ve seen too many men who have lost the spark of life and don’t know where to turn. Couple that with the fact that society in general doesn’t like or approve of masculinity (until they need men to do something) and it became painfully obvious that there was a problem.

In many ways I set out to solve my own problems as I was one of the men to which I’m referring.

  • What bothers you?
  • What injustices do you see in the world?
  • What problems do you have in your personal life?
  • What could be better about this life?

The answers to those questions will help you identify the battle you may have been born to fight.

Remember, you’re not limiting yourself here. You’re just brainstorming.

RECON

Once, you’ve identified some problems with the world – the ones that are meaningful to you, you’re probably going to find a common theme between them. There are probably a few that overlap or stand out to you.

If that’s the case, I’d recommend you start doing some reconnaissance.

  • Who is already addressing this problem?
  • What solutions are already available?
  • How has this problem been addressed in the past?
  • What gaps are there in the solution to this problem?

When you start answering questions like these, you start giving yourself the power to do something about the problems you see with the world.

BATTLE PLAN

Once you’ve identified the enemy and you’ve done some recon regarding the battle already being wages and the gaps that need to be filled, you can start planning your battle.

  • What solutions will you offer?
  • How will you offer them?
  • What assets do you need?
  • What in your life do you need to improve in order to be the champion of this cause?
  • Who do you need to know in order to bring the fight?

Once you know the answers to these questions, you should then ask yourself, what is the next first step?

ENGAGE

You don’t have to have this all mapped out. You just need to know what the next step is because the next step in your battle is to engage.

Maybe it’s to create a website or a podcast. Maybe you need to ask for a promotion at work or propose a project to your employer. Maybe you just need to start talking about some of this stuff on social media.

I don’t know what this looks like for you but you’re going to feel if it’s right only when you start engaging in the fight.

It does no good to do all this planning without actually taking the fight to the enemy. I see too many men plan and strategize and think about what they want and then never do anything about it.

I want you to take the next first step. Once you’ve done that, I want you to take the next first step. Over and over again.

When you find yourself getting off track, adjust and keep driving. You’re going to feel it.

I know this isn’t easy, especially if you feel like your soul has been dead for some time now but I can promise you that when you follow these steps and choose your battle your soul will come alive for the first time in years. You’ll feel like you have a calling – a purpose again. You’ll walk around with your head held high knowing that you’re doing the work of a man. I know it’s certainly been true for me.

135: Jocko Willink | Discipline Equals Freedom
45:53

There is no shortage of motivational events, courses, seminars, quotes, and memes. Don't get me wrong, motivation has its purpose but discipline is a far greater asset on your path to accomplishing big things in your life. Where motivation falls short, discipline picks up the slack.

Today, I'm joined by a man that needs no introduction, Jocko Willink, to talk about connecting future ambitions with present actions, why every man must find his mission, how to overcome fear and procrastination, and his mantra, "Discipline Equals Freedom."

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why discipline equals freedom
  • Key military tactics that translate into civilian life
  • Anticipating the delayed results of discipline
  • The pros and cons of focusing on strengths vs. weaknesses
  • Where Jocko's discipline comes from
  • How to connect your future ambitions with your present actions
  • The importance of defining your path
  • How to develop mental strength
  • Why every man needs a mission
  • The role of accountability when it comes to being more disciplined
  • How to overcome procrastination
  • Rasing kids to be strong and disciplined
  • How to overcome your fear
  • Where to start: mental preparation or physical action

JOCKO WILLINK

Gentlemen, I am stoked to introduce you to my return guest, Jocko Willink.

I'm sure that you know Jocko but in case you've been living under a rock the past 4-5 years or so, let me introduce you to him.

He is a Former Navy SEAL and commander of Task Unit Bruiser (the most decorated special forces unit of the Iraqi War), a recipient of the Bronze and Silver Star, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blackbelt, a New York Times Bestselling author of three books, and arguably one of the most disciplined men on this planet.

I, like you, have been following him ever since I ran across his book, Extreme Ownership, in Barnes & Noble and have been fortunate enough to develop a close enough relationship with him and his team that I when I heard he was coming out with a new book, Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual, I was able to get a message to him and get him back on the show.

Gentlemen, strap in, get your notepads out, and get ready to tune into one of the most qualified men I know to talk about how discipline will give you the freedom you're after.

FFN 077: How to Fight a Grizzly Bear
27:56

In October of 2016, Todd Orr was hiking in the mountains of Montana when he spotted a grizzly bear. He made eye contact and the bear ran off with her cubs over a crest in the distance. Only a few minutes later, Todd turned around to find the bear charging towards him. He pulled out his bear spray, fired, then collapsed as he found himself in a life and death struggle against a grizzly bear.

Not only did Todd survive, on his way back to his vehicle, he was attacked by the same bear again in a second life or death struggle.

134: Unfu*k Yourself | Gary John Bishop
47:01

At times, we tend to get into our own heads and become our own worst enemies. We often write off anyone who happens to disagree with us, puts us down in any way, and label them as "haters."

But it's our natural tendency - especially as high achieving men - to be our harshest critics. It's valuable at times and drives us to do great things and, other times, it creates unnecessary barriers to our success. My guest today, Gary John Bishop, author of Unfu*ck Yourself joins me to talk about how to redefine yourself by becoming unrealistic, how to uncover the narratives we tell ourselves, the difference between knowing something and being aware of something, and how to get out of your head and into your life.




SHOW HIGHLIGHTS


  • How to get out of your head
  • How to develop a no-nonsense approach to life
  • The critical difference between affirmations and personal assertions
  • Why self-help is inferior to self-development and growth
  • How to uncover the narratives you tell yourself
  • Understanding the study of Oncology and how it applies to your growth
  • The difference between being wrong and being inaccurate
  • How to become more present in your life
  • The power of telling yourself you're an asshole
  • Why we should not concern ourselves with the past and the future
  • The difference between knowing something and being aware of something
  • How to redefine yourself by being unrealistic
  • How to interrupt the notion of who you already are


GARY JOHN BISHOP

Gentlemen, my guest today is Gary John Bishop.

He is a personal development expert and the author of Unfu*ck Yourself - which is a book I just picked up to read a couple weeks ago.

In reading it, I can appreciate Gary's no-nonsense approach to human development, and high-powered mentoring. And, I knew right away I had to get him on the show.

He's worked with top athletes and Fortune 500 executives in his personal development career.

This guy is real. He's raw. He tells it like it is and pulls no punches which is exactly what we, as men, might just need in order to come to some realizations about our own lives, how to get out of our own heads, and out of our own way.

FFN 076: Motivation is B.S.
12:41

Everywhere you turn you’ll find another “motivational guru” attempting to inspire the masses to take action. If you’re like me, you’ve attended conferences, purchased courses, and poured over endless quotes and memes in a feeble attempt to get motivated enough to do what you already know you should be doing.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing particularly wrong with motivation, other than it doesn’t last. We’ve all left that conference feeling inspired only to get back into the grind and lose the excitement within 24-48 hours.

Like a drug-user hooked on cocaine, we’re constantly on the lookout for the next conference that promises to inspire, amaze, and motivate us yet again.

We go. We spend the time, the energy, and the money. And, we even get motivated for another 24-48 hours, until our next fix is needed.

And that’s the problem. We become dependent when we seek motivation from outside sources. And those that host these conferences know that and bank on the fact that you’ll have to come back next year.

I’m not suggesting you don’t attend these motivational conferences. I’m encouraging you to dig deeper than the surface-level B.S. that seems to be so prevalent in today’s society.

But rather than beat my chest and shout a catchy little tagline that “Motivation is B.S.”, let me share five strategies you can start using today to become your own source of inspiration and, more importantly, action.

PLANT YOUR FLAG

We live in a world where everything is promised immediately. Through Amazon, you can be reading a book I recommend in the next couple minutes. We’re promised immediate results from the latest fat-loss hack. Even podcast like this one allow us to listen to any subject on demand free from any need to wait for or on anyone.

In most cases, this access to information, products, and services is a beautiful thing. The unintended consequence, however, is that our attention span and patience has been greatly diminished.

That’s too bad considering that your success in any area of life requires an insane amount of consistency over long periods of time.

If you’re looking for immediate results in your life, motivation might just cut it. But if you’re interested in maintaining a healthy, wealthy, and successful life, you’re going to have to wrap your head around taking action for a lifetime.

BE A MAN OF YOUR WORD

Planting your flag requires you to be a man of your word. If, for example, you’ve committed to working out 5 days a week, every day you miss makes you a liar – to put it bluntly.

Sure, we can sugarcoat it and make excuses for why we missed our workouts but at the end of the day, you did not do what you said you would and that, by definition, makes you less than a man of your word.

It’s a good thing then that the idea of doing what you say you will is a skill set that can be learned.

All it takes is effort and consistency. Even the smallest of task and the smallest of promises count. If you tell your wife you’re going to take out the trash, take out the trash. If you tell your son you’re going to play catch with him after school, play catch with him after school. If you tell a neighbor you’ll be there to help him move, be there on time to help him move.

Every time you fail to keep your word, a little piece of your soul dies. It’s no wonder then why so many men seem to be miserable. They can’t keep their promises to themselves, let alone to others.

When you wake up early in the morning to work out, don’t question whether or not you should. Question whether or not you’re going to be a man of your word today. After all, the promises you make to yourself are the most important you can make.

SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES

Part of being a man of your word is about creating systems and processes to ensure you are.

Let’s use the workout example again. If you tell yourself you’re going to work out in the morning, set your clothes out the night before, get your pre-workout drink ready, and know what your workout is going to be. These are three simple systems that will keep you on track when you don’t want to be on track.

Calendars, daily rituals, evening routines, task lists, electronic reminders, Field Notes journals, coaching, and masterminds are all examples of systems and processed you can implement to get your work done.

REVIEW YOUR PROGRESS

Out of all the systems we could talk about, I want to focus on the idea of reviewing your progress. Most men don’t. We tend to identify the task, do it (or don’t), then move right to the next task.

This process of reviewing your actions, conversations, projects, interactions, and day is a critical component of diving deeper than simply being motivated.

I learned the after-action review in the military which is a series of five questions you can ask yourself to review your work and get you pointed in the right direction every day. For the sake of time, I’m not going to share the questions but if you’re interested, you can get a copy of the After-Action Review at www.orderofman.com/afteractionreview.

DISCIPLINE TRUMPS MOTIVATION

After all is said and done, the mantra that discipline trumps motivation has been a huge help for me.

Motivation is external. Discipline is internal. We rely on outside sources when we seek after motivation. We depend on ourselves when we strive for discipline.

This is what makes discipline so powerful. We simple decide that we’re going to be disciplined rather than wait for the perfect set of variables to motivate and inspire.

When you’re struggling to get out of bed, or workout, or be consistent with the project at work or in school, remember and tell yourself, “discipline trumps motivation” or as Jocko would say, “Discipline equals freedom.”

Internalize it, get a bracelet that says it, tattoo it on your forehead if you have to but whatever you do life your life by the words, “discipline trumps motivation.”

This is not an overnight process, especially if you’ve been relying others to motivate you most of your life but remember to plant your flag, be a man of your word, develop systems and processes, review your progress, and live your life by the mantra, “discipline trumps motivation” and you’ll never want - or need - for motivation again.

FFN 075: Why Men Fail
11:36

I typically like to frame these discussions in a positive perspective but I do think it’s important that we occasionally look at the other side. Most people are more than willing to talk about what will make a man a success and, while I agree that’s an important subject to cover, just as important is the discussion of what is going to keep you from accomplishing what you want.

So today, in an attempt to keep you from falling into some of the same traps this humble man has fallen into a time or two, I’ll share with you 6 reasons why men fail and, in doing so, help you find a new path to thriving in what we call the Quadrants (yourself, your relationships, your health, and your wealth).

PRIDE COMES BEFORE THE FALL

The number one reason most men fail, and the reason I fail from time to time is pride.

I’ve talked about it before but we have been led to believe that if you don’t have the answer, you’re an idiot or less of a man.

It’s unfortunate that’s the case because it drives us to go at it alone, to figure out things the hard way, and to struggle, when all we really have to do is reach out to someone who may know a few things more than we do.

The solution is simple: recognize you don’t have it all figured out and ask for help from someone who does.

Want to get in shape? Ask someone what you should do to get in shape.
Want a promotion? Ask someone to help you with the project that will help you secure your promotion.
Want to shore up the relationship with your wife? Ask someone who has a great relationship.

The solution, again, is ask. Humble yourself and reach out

YOU DON’T HAVE AN INFORMATION PROBLEM; YOU HAVE A DISCIPLINE PROBLEM

When I started Order of Man in early 2015, I knew there wasn’t a lot of new information I could share with men. But what I recognized is that information isn’t really the problem.

You have access to more information in the palm of your hand than the most educated minds had a hundred years ago. Information isn’t the problem. Action (or lack thereof) is. And, more specifically, sustained action.

Motivation doesn’t cut it. Accountability doesn’t cut it. The only thing that will yield the results your after is consistent action towards your objective.

When that alarm goes off in the wee hours of the morning, it’s time to fight. It’s time to engage. It’s time to battle. All you need is to DECIDE.

FEAR IS YOUR ENEMY

We’ve all heard the acronym F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real). I disagree. Fear is real. It’s designed to keep you alive.

Running from the things that scare you, or worse, pretending it doesn’t exist will not get you closer to your goal.

Facing the enemy that is fear will. When you’re scared, acknowledge it. Recognize it for what it is and use the fear to equip and arm yourself with the tools, mindset, skill set, and resources to look it in the eye and drive on.

It’s likely that the thing you fear the most won’t kill you. It’s simply going to make you feel a little uncomfortable. Be okay with that. Discomfort is your friend, fear is your enemy.

ACTING FOR ACCEPTANCE

In my experience, one of the biggest dangers we fall into is trying to be accepted by others. The way we run our marriages, our businesses, our workouts, and our lives is so centered around what other people think.

I know personally there have been times in my life where I’ve wondered whose life am I living. The answer is someone else’s.

We’re constantly bombarded by stimuli from magazines and books, to this podcast and mainstream media. And, we believe that the way one person does it is the way we should do it.

Add to that the environment of political correctness in which we live and you’re likely to withhold the way you really feel or alter your message or actions based on the perceived criticism you’ll receive from others.

If you truly want to thrive, you’ll work on overcoming what other people think about you.

EXCUSES ARE LIES

Regardless of how you choose to paint it, the excuses you craft are nothing more than cleverly disguised lies.

And, what’s worse is you’ve been lying to yourself for so long that you’re actually starting to believe your own B.S.

When something doesn’t go according to plan, I’d encourage you to say, “This didn’t go well because I did or didn’t ____________.” Sure, there may be other people that have a part to play in the failure of your objective but there’s nothing you can do about another human being – only yourself.

SITTING THE SIDELINES

The excuses you tell yourself lead into the last point I want to make with you today. Because you’ve been feeding yourself lies, it’s caused you to stop in your tracks. It’s caused you to question your ability to drive on and maybe even your desire to do so.

The reason a lot of men fail is because they’re so concerned with all the other reasons I shared with you today at the expense of the very action that will help them succeed in the first place.

If you want to thrive, you need to take action. You’re probably going to mess up. You’re probably going to fall short. People are probably going to mock you. So what?

You can fail at your objective so no one sees you misstep or you can struggle for a little while until you’re able to achieve what it is you’re after.

Let’s recap these again: pride comes before the fall, you don’t have an information problem; you have an action problem, fear is your enemy, acting for acceptance, excuses are lies, and sitting the sideline.

I know these factors aren’t easy to overcome. I struggle against them every day. But the times when I’ve been the happiest, most successful, and most content in my life is when I’ve recognized what I’m against and overcome them anyways.

132: Decoding and Deciphering Human Behavior | Chase Hughes
43:14

Someone asked me several weeks ago, "If you could have one super power, what would it be?" To which I responded, "The ability to read people's minds." As it turns out one doesn't need to be a superhero in order to possess the ability to understand what other people are thinking and, to a degree, use that knowledge to produce desired outcomes.

My guest today, the founder of Ellipsis Behavior Laboratories and the author of The Ellipses Manuel, joins me to talk about reading body language and thoughts, becoming a human lie detector, how to activate trust in others, and how to decode and decipher human behavior.

CHASE HUGHES

Chase Hughes (@thechasehughes) is a Navy veteran and an author and speaker on behavior analysis, body language and behavior engineering.

He founded Ellipsis Behavior Laboratories in 2011 and has since developed the Behavioral Table of Elements which, after pouring over this, is probably the most extensive behavioral analysis tool I've ever seen.

Chase is also the creator of other life-saving systems such as 'The Hostile Hospital' and 'Tactical Psychology'. And, if that's not enough, Chase is also in the process of developing new programs for the US Government.

He volunteers his skills by training members of anti-human trafficking teams around the world and has published two books on human behavior and over 29 articles and papers on behavior and behavior analysis.

Chase Hughes is here today to talk about the concepts from his new book, The Ellipsis Manual: Analysis and Engineering of Human Behavior.

FFN 074: Overcoming "The Drift"
10:46

What exactly is “The Drift?” The Drift is the natural tendency we have as men to coast, and in a way, take our hands off the steering wheel of life and allow ourselves to be controlled and put ourselves at the mercy of all that life offers.

The fact is that there are forces at work against us that keep us from accomplishing what we truly want in life and, unless, we’re actively engaged in the process of intentionally living our lives, it’s very easy for us to get off course.

Today, I’m going to share with you why this happens but, more importantly, 3 measures you can take to ensure you maintain the course you are meant to maintain.

131: Living Life on the Edge | Navy SEAL Andy Stumpf
43:01

Everywhere you turn, you'll find men living what I call the sedated life. Like robots on an assembly line, these men wake up at the same time, eat the same food for breakfast, drive to work the same way every day, do the same menial tasks for 8-9 hours, drive home, kiss the wife and kids, eat dinner, watch some TV, go to bed, and do it all over again.

My guest today, former Navy SEAL and wingsuit base-jumper Andy Stumpf is the exact opposite of that. And, while we can't all be Navy SEALs, jump of really high mountains and structures, and travel the distance of 18 miles in a wingsuit, we can all take some calculated risks that make us feel alive.

Today we talk about finding something worth fighting for, eliminating emotions in the decision-making process, why people fail in the application of their goals, and how to live life on the edge.



ANDY STUMPF

Andy Stumpf (@andystumpf77) is a former Navy SEAL with SEAL Team Five and later joining the most elite counter-terrorism unit in the military, SEAL Team Six.


He is also 5.11 and Black Rifle Coffee Company sponsored athlete, and has an affinity for jumping off really tall mountains and perfectly good airplanes.

As impressive as that sounds, he refers to himself as a "professional gravity enthusiast" and rightfully so. He's completed wingsuit jumps lasting more that 18 miles at speeds of 161 mph.

He is the recipient of 5 Bronze Star Medals (four with valor), the Purple Heart, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, the Navy and Marine Corp Commendation Medal with Valor, three Navy and Marine Corp Achievement Medals, and two Combat Action Ribbons.

In other words, the man is a genuine Bad-A and today's he's here to talk about living life on the edge.

FFN 073: The Power of a Coach
13:13

I think it’s safe to assume by now that you probably - at least to some degree -  understand that having a coach is such a valuable strategy towards becoming great, whether that’s improving your golf swing, enhancing your public speaking skills, building a solid relationship with your wife, or growing your business.

But, it amazes me how often men recognize the value of coaching in elite performers yet underestimate the power of having a coach even if you’re not at the elite level or competing on the global stage.

Today I talk about why you should consider hiring a coach and what to look for.

130: Finish What You Start | Jon Acuff
42:00

If you're anything like me, you are what I refer to as a "starter." I've never been at a loss for figuring out how to start things. Getting things done is a completely different story.

Today I am joined by New York Times Bestselling author, Jon Acuff. If you have a problem with finishing what you start, this is the episode for you and, I'm not going to lie, I needed this one more than most.

We talk about the developing a tolerance for imperfection, why "strategic incompetence" is a powerful tool, how to overcome what Jon calls "noble obstacles," a new spin on SMART goals, and how to finally finish what you started.

Jon Acuff

Guys, I am so stoked to be introducing you to my guest today, Mr. Jon Acuff.

I've read all four of his books and I've been trying to get him on the show for two years. The time finally came with the release of his new book today (if you're listening to this the day it is being released), Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done.

The other books I've read are Do Over, Start, and Quitter. All of which have been instrumental in helping me launch the podcast you're listening to right now.

He's a New York Times Bestselling Author. He's worked with companies like Home Depot, Staples, and The Dave Ramsey Team. He's been featured on CNN, Fox News, and other major media outlets.

This guy is intelligent, he's funny, and he's here to drop some serious knowledge on the art, science, and skill of finishing what you start.

FFN 072: Lessons Learned from Hurricane Harvey
09:57

Today, I thought it would be a good idea to address something that has impacted millions of people over the last several weeks and that is the nightmare in Houston created by Hurricane Harvey.

As I’ve thought about what those people must be experiencing and what we’ve seen online and on TV, I can’t help but think of a couple glaring lessons we should all look to when it comes to how we conduct ourselves as men.

I see some areas of improvement and I see some areas that, from what I can tell are absolutely amazing to see in the wake of such a horrific situation.

So, let’s get into these lessons today.

129: Men and Politics | Sean Whalen
42:43

Politics - just the mention of the word infuriates most and has the ability to split up marriages and lifelong friendships alike.

What a shame, since our political environment literally permeates every single element of our lives - taxes, defense, infrastructure, education, economics, and so much more.


Today, I am joined by my good friend and mentor Sean Whalen. Sean is currently running for congress in the third congressional district in Utah. You're going to love some of what this man has to say and, I'm sure a lot of you are going to hate what he has to say.

But, regardless, I encourage you to listen with an open mind so we can prove to the world that it is possible to hold a civil and intelligent political conversation.

SEAN WHALEN

Gentlemen, today I get to introduce you to one of my favorite repeat guests, Mr. Sean Whalen.


Sean is a friend and mentor of mine and, although I don't agree with him on everything, I have always admired his candor and ability to hold true to his convictions.

He has done everything from MMA fighting to real estate mogul to off-road truck driver. He's talked about it all from hitting rock bottom through a bankruptcy and nasty divorce to what has become an incredible movement with Lions Not Sheep.

And, if that's not enough, he's adding Congressional Candidate to the never-ending resume that can only be Sean Whalen's.



Gentlemen, buckle up, listen up, and let's talk about men and politics.

FFN 071: Memento Mori
08:45

You may have heard the Latin phrase, “Memento Mori” which quite literally means “remember that you have to die.” That phrase has also been used to describe an object that serves as a reminder of death, like a skull or any other object that has that connotation.

Now, the reason I want to talk with you about this because, just prior to hitting record on this podcast, I booked a flight and hotel to go see my father who, just a couple days ago, had a heart attack. I don’t know whether he is going to live or die but, unfortunately, right now, things don’t look good. I’m sure by the time this podcast is released we’ll know if he has passed or if he’s in the clear.

As I think about all that’s gone on for me physically, mentally, and emotionally over the past 48 hours, I can’t help but think about the prospect of my own death.

128: Style as a Tool to Have More and Be More | Ryan Magin
46:15

So many men are afraid to even talk about style. In my experience, they believe that it's just not that important when it comes to being a man or they don't want to be viewed as anything less than manly.

I get it. I used to be the same way. That was until I understood the power of dressing well and leveling up your presence. Dressing well isn't about a well-tailored suit, fancy shoes, and overpriced jeans. It's about being deliberate and intentional about sharing with the world who you really are.

My friend, Ryan Magin joins me today to talk about what role style plays in masculinity, why men are afraid to elevate their style, something he calls "enclothed cognition" and the "halo effect," and how to use your style to have more and be more.
RYAN MAGIN

Gentlemen, my guest today is my good friend,
