Great podcast about masculinity and self improvement. Not the typical aggressive redpilled podcast that youd expect to get but rather how to lead and cultivate great values within yourself, your family and at work.

How Dogs Can Make You a Better Man | MIKE RITLAND
01:09:46

I know on the surface the title of this podcast may seem a bit far-fetched but I can assure you that what my guest today, Mike Ritland, and I cover regarding dog handling and training can make you a better man if you apply it.

I don’t want to make the comparison of humans and animals (clearly, there are huge differences) but there is a ton of psychology that goes into effectively training dogs that can be directly applied to our approach as men like developing patience, looking for feedback, adhering to first or foundational principles, how we can communicate effectively. We also get into some other topics regarding our current cultural crisis, politics, and our job as fathers.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Sheltering our youth
  • Living with consequences
  • Micromanagement
  • Learning from your mistakes
  • Training dogs through repetition
  • Shaping behavior
  • Rewarding your dog
  • Socialization
  • Training with "Dog Men"
  • The Dog Warrior Foundation

MIKE RITLAND

My guest today is a former Navy SEAL and the founder of Team Dog Online Training, Mike Ritland.

He’s also a New York Times Bestselling author of three books: Trident K9 Warriors, Navy SEAL Dogs, and TEAM Dog. In addition, he is the host of the wildly popular podcast, Mike Drop.

Mike is a fascinating human being never at a loss of an opinion on the current culture, how to train dogs, and generally how to become a better, more capable human being.

Forging Noble Manhood | STEPHEN MANSFIELD
01:09:31

If you didn’t believe in the inherent value of masculinity, you wouldn’t be here listening to this podcast. But you are so I know that you believe in the message to reclaim and restore masculinity in a world that has been constantly distorting what it means to be a man, undermining the value men bring to society, and signing masculinity off as a socially constructed and antiquated behavior of men.

That’s why the conversation I have with repeat guest, Stephen Mansfield is so crucial. He has been championing noble manhood for years and I could not be more honored than to call him a friend.

Today, we talk about the culture of men, the critical importance of a man’s legacy, the fire of heritage, rituals, a man’s warrior spirit, and why we must all fight to forge noble manhood.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Learning family heritage
  • The traditional family
  • Community obligations
  • Informal mentorship
  • The lore of manhood
  • The fire of God
  • Male authority
  • Building woman up
  • Searching for answers
  • Taking on ridicule
  • Virtues of a warrior
  • The duplicity of life
  • Stepping into manhood


STEPHEN MANSFIELD

My guest today is my good friend and repeat guest, Stephen Mansfield. As I said previously, he has been a champion of noble manhood for years and has been a huge support and advocate for what we’re doing here at Order of Man. In fact, he was gracious enough to write a powerful testimony for my book, Sovereignty: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men.

Stephen is a political commentator, founder of Greatmen.tv, and New York Times Bestselling author and has written many incredible books including, Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men, Building Your Band of Brothers, and his latest (which he is here to talk with us about today), Men on Fire.

LEGACY

Fathers, on September 3rd-6th we’re going to be hosting our first-ever Legacy experience in Maine.

You and your son (between the ages of 8-15) are going to come to my property to be pushed to the max physically, mentally, and emotionally. And, all of it is designed to equip you and your boy with the tools needed to thrive in the crazy world in which we live.

If you’re anything like me, ensuring your son becomes the man he is capable of becoming is what keeps you at night more than anything else. And, when you come to the Legacy experience on September 3rd-6th, you’re going to be working alongside me and my boys and 19 other fathers/sons to ensure you have everything you need to help your boy become a man.

If you want to learn more and lock in your spot, go to www.orderofman.com/legacy.

STEVEN PRESSFIELD | The War of Art
01:15:27

The act of creation is something we have a desire to do but just because we desire to create doesn’t make it any easier. In fact, creating and putting your work into the world for others to judge is one of the most challenging things a human can do. There are a lot of reasons for this but ultimately it boils down to what my guest today calls, “resistance.”

I’m honored to be joined by someone I’ve admired and respected for a very long time, Mr. Steven Pressfield, and today we talk about what “resistance” actually is and how it manifests itself differently in people’s lives. We also talk about the arrogance of planning, the culture of virtue, identifying the “soul’s code,” why work can be like war, and how to equip yourself for it.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The voices in your head
  • Putting in the work
  • Improving over time
  • Making better mistakes
  • Working the problem
  • Defining professionalism
  • The amateur mindset
  • Going through a process
  • Finding your calling
  • Playing the long game
  • The artists' journey
  • Infallible wisdom
  • A culture of virtue

STEVEN PRESSFIELD

My guest today is the one and only Steven Pressfield.

Needless to say, many of you are already familiar with at least some of his work, including The War of Art, Do the Work, The Warrior Ethos, and Gates of Fire.

But what a lot of you may not know is that Steven wrote for 27 years before his first novel, The Legend of Bagger Vance, was published. So, obviously, he knows a thing or two about putting in the work and overcoming resistance in all of its forms.

Since then, he’s gone on to sell millions of copies of his books and has become one of the most influential figures in fighting through challenging times, paying your dues, and teaching others how to succeed as creators.

Gents, this one is such a powerful conversation. I hope you enjoy it.

MAINE EVENT

Last week, I talked with you about the Legacy Event which is for fathers and sons but this week I wanted to share our next event, Maine Event, which will be held October 9th-11th with an exclusive Iron Council dinner the evening of the 8th.

Over a period of two days, you’ll work alongside 100 other motivated, ambitious men to create a Battle Plan that will help you roll into 2021 in full stride and ready to seize all that the new year has to offer you.

You’re going to get one-one coaching, group accountability, camaraderie, and the type of conversations and insights that most men just don’t get in their day-to-day activities.

We only have six spots remaining so if you’re even remotely interested, please head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent as quickly as possible to lock in one of the last seats to this incredible experience.

Again, head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent, to learn more and claim your seat.

How to Build a Business and Become an Entrepreneur | RYAN MORAN
01:09:35

Building a business is something I think every man should look into and, while not every man is cut out for the entrepreneurial life, self-employment provides benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked – the flexibility of schedule, the pursuit of passion, and unlimited income potential.

But with all that goes into successfully running a business, starting your own can seem like a daunting, if not impossible, endeavor. Today, I am joined by my friend and serial entrepreneur, Ryan Moran. He is the founder of Capitalism.com and the author of 12 Months to $1 Million. We talk about choosing a winning product, the mindset for building a business, how to stack the deck in your favor, aligning your interest with business growth, and the true purpose of money.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Opening a new chapter
  • An expensive use of energy
  • Growth is pain
  • Improving in the present
  • Creating a meaningful impact
  • Diminishing returns
  • Creating value for others
  • Serving the right people
  • The twelve-month roadmap
  • Building your infrastructure
  • Earning trust first
  • Predictable growth
  • How to get funding
  • Conflicting values

RYAN DANIEL MORAN

My guest today is my good friend and serial entrepreneur, Ryan Moran. He is the founder of Capitalism.com and the author of 12 Months to $1,000,000.

He is also an investor and owns multiple businesses that generate millions of dollars in revenue. And, he has personally helped create over 100 millionaires using the strategies he teaches. In fact, many of the strategies Ryan teaches are the strategies I’ve used to grow Order of Man into what it is today.

Despite his tremendous success, Ryan is extremely down to earth and has a passion for helping other people realize their own dreams through free markets and building passionate, profitable businesses.

LEGACY

Coming off of Father’s Day weekend, I wanted to again let you know about our first-ever Legacy Experience in Maine.

This is a 3 ½ father/son event designed to forge deeper bonds between you and your son, equip you both with the tools, frameworks, and resources you need to thrive, and build up the fortitude and resilience needed to succeed in an insane world.

We’re going to be doing some airsoft, Jiu-Jitsu, hiking, firesides, planning sessions, and some other challenging surprises that you and your son will be talking about for the rest of your life.

If you have a son, nephew, mentee, etc. between the ages of 8-15, I want to invite you to join us September 3rd-6th, 2020 on my property in Maine. You can learn more and register at www.ordeofman.com/legacy.

The Hidden Value of Jiu-Jitsu | NICK ALBIN "CHEWY"
01:01:01

It’s no secret that I’m a huge proponent of Jiu-Jitsu. In fact, I’m sure you guys get sick of me talking about it on the podcast so much. But I do because over the past year and a half, I’ve come to find immense value in the practice and seen the benefits (sometimes hidden) of what it offers.

My guest today is someone who I’ve been following for quite some time. His name is Nick Albin “Chewy” and he’s a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt. Today we discuss, the masochistic nature of Jiu-Jitsu, personal responsibility in training, dialing the intensity of your training both up and down, how Jiu-Jitsu can serve as a therapy session of sorts, and the hidden value of the discipline.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Getting into Jiu-Jitsu
  • Dealing with pain
  • Your worst enemy
  • Good training partners
  • Intentional training
  • Prioritizing your routine
  • Training too little
  • Strengthening your body
  • Being ultra-competitive
  • Rolling with students
  • How warriors train
  • Going for the kill
  • Seeing different sides
  • Losing the fear
  • Finding a good gym

NICK ALBIN “CHEWY”

My guest today is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt, Nick Albin (affectionately referred to as Chewy). I came across his work as I was studying, learning, and researching Jiu-Jitsu.

He’s got an incredible YouTube channel (Chewjitsu) filled with ideas, strategies, insights, tactics, and mindsets for improving your game. And, he’s been indirectly instrumental in helping me improve my game as I dive deeper down the rabbit hole of something that has become a critical part of my week and life.

LEGACY

This message is for fathers with a son(s) between the ages of 8 -15. I know that Father’s Day is coming up this weekend and it’s likely that you’ll be getting an ugly tie and/or some homemade arts and crafts.

That’s all fine and great but you know as a father that giving is better than getting. So, if you’re looking to give your son(s) an experience they’ll never forget, consider joining us at our first-ever Legacy Experience in Maine.

This is a 3 ½ day event designed to forge tighter bonds with you and your boy and give both him and you the tools, resources, frameworks, and mindset to thrive, as men, in challenging and uncertain times.

You’re both going to be pushed physically, mentally, and emotionally but you’re going to leave with a better relationship and the skills you need to usher your son into manhood.

The event is going to be held September 3rd – 6th and we only have 5 spots remaining. Learn more and lock in your spot at www.orderofman.com/legacy.

Men in Politics | SEAN PARNELL
01:10:19

Politics is just something we don’t talk a whole lot about in the Order of Man movement. I think it’s clear why. Masculinity isn’t reserved for one side of the political aisle but I do believe there are some underlying principles of masculinity (and the betterment of society) that tend to be politicized.

And, so, I’ve rejected the notion of talking about politics or being even remotely political but it’s clear to me that these are conversations that need to be had. And, I can think of no better person to talk with us about it today than Sean Parnell, an Army Ranger veteran, New York Times Bestselling Author, and candidate for Congress. Today we talk about servant leadership, the American Dream, trust, power grabs, and men in politics.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Being a warrior
  • Learning lessons
  • Servant leadership
  • Finding the right answer
  • Dirty politics
  • Raising campaign money
  • Voting in leaders
  • When tribalism wins
  • Cultural shifts
  • Political systems
  • Defending freedom
  • Coming home from war
  • Economic fallout
  • Common sense thinking
  • Personal responsibility
  • Showing gratitude
  • Delivering justice

SEAN PARNELL

My guest today is Sean Parnell. He served as an Army Ranger with the 10th Mountain Division. His platoon, nicknamed “Outlaw Platoon” killed over 350 enemy fighters in some of the biggest firefights in the Afghan war.

Upon returning to the states and after serious injuries (including neurological injuries), Sean was medically discharged from the military. He went on to write his New York Times Bestselling book, Outlaw Platoon, and is now a regular contributor on Fox as well as appearances on CNN, MSNBC, and many others.

He is also the co-founder of the American Warrior Initiative and has since thrown his hat in the ring of politics and is running for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional District.

The Path To Redemption | WES WATSON
01:14:30

All of us have fallen behind or gotten off track somewhere in our lives (some more than others). Only some decide to get back on track and take control of their lives – to redeem themselves if you will. And, who doesn’t respect the hell out of a man who has hit rock bottom and risen from the ashes?

That’s why I wanted to invite Wes Watson on the podcast. He’s arguably one of the most influential men I’ve had the honor of talking with because of his no-BS, straight-talking approach to improving your life. Today we talked about Wes’ 10-year prison sentence, the power of gratitude in dire circumstances, overcoming regret and shame, developing a new stream of consciousness, and how to build your own redemption story.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Cognitive dissonance
  • Running from pain
  • Personal growth
  • External distractions
  • Levering emotional motivation
  • Giving yourself away
  • Bringing worth to life
  • Creating daily systems
  • Regret is your guideline
  • Shifting your mindset
  • Another chance at life
  • Sharing your F*ck-ups
  • Re-writing books
  • Managing negative energy
  • Positive mental attitude
  • Elevating yourself
  • Living out of an abundance

WES WATSON

My guest today is Wes Watson, strength and fitness coach, but he’s so much more than that. Wes simply uses health and fitness as a medium for transforming your mind and your life.

Wes spent 10-years in prison and was quickly spiraling into a life of chaos and destruction but while serving his prison sentence, he began to transform his life through the power of his thoughts and daily actions.

After being released from prison, Wes has become one of the most powerful voices in self-development, has built a massively successful business, and has inspired thousands of people to transform their own lives through his mentorship and coaching.

You’re going to hear in this conversation why I wanted Wes to join us as the fire he brings can’t help but motivate and inspire you to get your life on track.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, we’re rapidly approaching father’s day and, as we do, it was important to me that inside of the Iron Council we have a discussion about redeeming the relationship with our fathers.

Regardless of your relationship with your father, it’s likely that some conversations have been left unsaid and there is a strain between you and him. And, regardless of your ability/desire to reconcile with your father, there are steps you can take to come to terms with the relationship that you have with him so you can drive on in your own life with clarity, focus, direction, and purpose as a man.

These aren’t comfortable conversations, challenges, and discussions we’re having inside the Iron Council this month but they’re completely necessary if you want to break the chains that may have been holding you back from becoming the man you’re wanting to become – not the boy in his father’s shadow.

If you’re ready to have these conversations, challenges, accountably, brotherhood, and more, join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

MAT FRASER | Becoming the Fittest Man on Earth
01:20:47

Gentlemen, my guest today is 4-time CrossFit Games Champion, Mat Fraser. I’ve always been fascinated with what makes some of the most successful men on the planet tick. That fascination became the foundation for this podcast and I can’t tell you how honored I am to have this man, Mat Fraser, - someone I’ve admired and respected for years - join us to talk about his unusual and extraordinary effort and work ethic.

We talk about his background in Olympic Weightlifting, building self-sufficiency, the need for sacrifice and singular focus, how to establish your core values and rules for life, the power of obsession, and ultimately, his path to becoming the Fittest Man on Earth.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Training at home
  • Online competition
  • Risks in CrossFit
  • Hitting your goals
  • An Olympic hopeful
  • A level of sacrifice
  • Putting in the work
  • Keeping things simple
  • Finding satisfaction
  • Measuring success
  • Daily motivation
  • Chasing gratification
  • Identifying values in life
  • Living a simple life
  • Establishing rule to life
  • External pressure

MAT FRASER

My guest today is 4-time CrossFit Games Champion, Mat Fraser. In an ultra-competitive environment, he has found a way to apply himself and achieve insane amounts of work ethic and drive to become the best in his field – for years!

He comes from an Olympic Weightlifting background had planned on going that route until he suffered a back injury in 2009 before shifting his focus to CrossFit.

Most of you are probably familiar to some degree with Mat and I’ve been following him for years now but I was surprised at his level of humility. In fact, he’s probably one of the most down-to-earth men I’ve had on this podcast in spite of his tremendous level of success and accomplishment.

I hope that you enjoy listening to our conversation as much as I enjoyed having it.

IRON COUNCIL.

Gentlemen, I know that last week I told you about this month’s topic inside the Iron Council but I thought I’d bring it up again because, after the first week of our discussions and challenges, it is apparent how important the relationship is between a man and his father.

And, it’s apparent that many of us men have estranged relationships with our dad. This is unfortunate since most of us have learned (for better or worse) how to show up as a man from our fathers.

When you band with us in the Iron Council, you’ll be able to join in on these powerful conversations and participate in the challenges designed to push you into the deep end of your past, your potential, and the narratives you consciously or subconsciously lived your life by.

If you’re ready to make a change and step into the man you’re capable of becoming, join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Guys, I’ve got a great one lined up with you today with the one and only, Mat Best with Black Rifle Coffee Company. We do things a little different as we answer some live YouTube questions but we cover everything from learning to focus on what’s important, building confidence through creation, overcoming introversion, finding something that drives you, dealing with rejection, the power of different perspectives, and learning to become your own man.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Crushing your goals
  • Staying focused
  • Family time
  • Being better than average
  • Developing confidence
  • Prioritizing family
  • Going against the grain
  • Investing in yourself
  • Creating positivity
  • Putting in the work
  • Hating failure
  • Keys to success
  • Manufacturing hardship
  • Embarrassing moments
  • Figuring things out
  • Planning out your day
  • Creating your environment

MAT BEST

My guest today is Mat Best and he is the co-founder of Black Rifle Coffee Company. Every time I have the opportunity to talk with Mat, I walk away thinking how down to earth this guy is in the face of some incredible accomplishments.

He is a former Army Ranger, successful entrepreneur, and New York Times Bestselling author of Thank You For My Service. And, he’s someone who has figured out what makes him happy, what he’s passionate about, and learned to go all-in on that pursuit.

IRON COUNCIL

This month, inside the Iron Council, has the potential to become the toughest, most engaging, challenging months we’ve had since we launched 5 years.

The title of this month’s topic is “The Father/Son Atonement” and we’re going to be discussing and working towards bridging the gap between fathers and their sons. It’s clear to me that the lack of fatherhood is a real problem in modern culture and after having one of my YouTube videos go viral (over 1,300,000 views) on the subject of fatherhood, this is clearly a topic that needs to be addressed.

If you decide to band with us this month, you’ll get access to the assignment, a Battle Team of 14 other men who will help hold you accountable to change and progress, and the challenges we issue that are going to push you further past your comfort zone then you’ve ever gone.

But that’s where the real change takes place and this is exactly where you’re going to want to be if you’re ready to expand.

How to Make Fear Your Ally | AKSHAY NANAVATI
01:15:45

Fear is something every single one of us deals with (probably on a daily basis). Unfortunately, too many men consciously or unconsciously allow fear to keep them from going after what they want most. So, how can you use fear to your advantage as opposed to a hindrance?

That’s exactly what I talk about today with my guest Akshay Nanavati, the author of Fearvana: How to Turn Fear into Health, Wealth, and Happiness. We cover the critical importance of becoming aware and accepting fear, flawed mental health, the idea that there are no “bad” or “negative” emotions, why you need to learn to explore the edges of life, and how to make fear your ally.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Confronting the fear of stillness
  • Breaking sobriety
  • Staying in the fight
  • Running marathons
  • Serving the greater good
  • Self-destructive behavior
  • Seeking out suffering
  • Reframe Your Experiences
  • Researching neuroscience
  • Taking it to the next level
  • Self-fulfilling prophecy
  • Norman human response
  • Experiencing diversity
  • It’s about the struggle
  • Seek out new problems
  • Owning your reality

AKSHAY NANAVATI

My guest today is a fascinating man. His name is Akshay Nanavati and he is a Marine veteran, speaker, entrepreneur, ultra-runner, and author of the book, Fearvana.

He’s overcome so much including a drug addiction after his service, a blood disorder that doctors told him could kill him in boot camp, and combat where his job was to walk in front of vehicles to find IED’s.

He’s dealt with PTSD, survivor’s guilt, alcoholism, and depression, and, after all of that, has somehow found the power to overcome all of it and live a life of fulfillment and adventure as a skydiver, mountain biker, scuba diver, and rock/ice climber.

Men, you’re definitely going to enjoy this conversation and use what Akshay teaches as fuel to light your own fire.

IRON COUNCIL.

Men, the Iron Council continues to grow as more and more men are seeing the power of what we’re doing by banding with other men who are willing to hold each other accountable to accomplishing the most out of their lives.

We just had Jack Donovan join us for one of our exclusive Iron Council sessions and we’re in the process of bringing on more incredible men to join us for our weekly calls.

In addition to that, we’re going to give you the framework and network to transform your life from what you’ve always wanted to what you’re actually experiencing. And, that is our whole objective – to bridge the gap between what you know you should be doing and what you’re actually doing.

GREG ANDERSON | Police Officer Calls into Question Enforcement of Unconstitutional Orders
01:18:40

There is no doubt that many of us have begun to call into question the enforcement of unconstitutional orders and Covid-19 restrictions, including my guest today, Police Officer with the Port of Seattle, Greg Anderson.

Greg is currently on administrative leave pending an investigation which will likely lead to his termination for insubordination after posting a video on his personal Instagram page expressing his concerns with police officers enforcing unlawful and unconstitutional orders. It’s obviously a very touchy subject and situation but a conversation that needs to be had.

Today, we talk about how we must unite as a country, the use of discretion by police officers, living in fear, the government’s power/control grab, and drawing a line in the sand, and standing by your convictions.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • It’s not about COVID-19
  • Violating social media policy
  • Keeping it above the fray
  • Operating in tribes
  • Doing the right thing
  • Inspiring officers
  • Fighting for freedom
  • The violent side of humanity
  • Losing your mind
  • Mitigating risk
  • Living in fear
  • Focus on the mission
  • Reckless behavior
  • Not picking sides
  • Opening the floodgates
  • Holding true to principles

GREG ANDERSON

My guest today is Greg Anderson and, although you may not know his name, it’s likely that you’ve seen his video in which he talked about his concerns, as a police officer for the Port of Seattle, of enforcing illegal and unconstitutional orders in the wake of Covid-19.

In addition to serving his community as a law enforcement officer, he is an Army Ranger veteran serving multiple combat tours including one to Ramadi, Iraq in the most hostile and dangerous environments one can imagine. Greg is also a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt and the owner of Electric North Jiu-Jitsu and has recently become an outspoken advocate for individual rights, liberty, and freedom.

I think our conversation is likely to fire a lot of you up which is exactly what is needed in times like these.

IRON COUNCIL

Men, I’m going to hit the pause button on my conversation with Greg because I want to talk with you about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council.

I’ve received several messages from Iron Council members over the past several months that have told me that the Iron Council has literally saved their life. And, although I won’t get into the specifics, it’s inspiring to me to know that the work we’re doing inside the brotherhood is getting men on the right track and back on the path to thriving and succeeding.

There are a lot of ways we facilitate this but for the sake of time, I’ll tell you that the two biggest factors that go into what we do inside the Iron Council is the framework and the network – the framework point you in the right direction and make the right moves and the network to keep you on track and give you the occasional kick in the ass when you need it.

How to Size People Up and Predict Their Behavior | ROBIN DREEKE
01:24:20

The ability to accurately size someone up could spell the difference between life and death, whether you or the other guy gets the promotion, if that prospect purchases from you, or if she decides to date/marry you.

And, I can think of no better person to talk with us about predicting human behavior than Robin Dreeke, who spent more than two decades as a behavior analyst for the FBI. Today, we talk about being wary of trusting your gut, the difference between your gut and intuition, why if you’re betrayed by others you may have actually betrayed yourself, manipulation, judgment, how to predict human behavior, and why it matters.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Packaging human physiology
  • Developing relationships
  • Projecting blame
  • Emotional hijacking
  • It’s all about judging
  • You can’t please everybody
  • Positive manipulation
  • Situational awareness
  • Building muscle memory
  • When to trust your gut
  • Non-verbal body language
  • Detecting deception
  • Strategizing relationships
  • Identifying non-tangibles motives
  • Become a better leader

ROBIN DREEKE

My guest today is Robin Dreeke and he spent more than two decades as a behavior analyst for the FBI. He’s dealt with extremely complex situations from handling Russian spies to navigating the internal politics on the Bureau.

He’s written three books, It’s Not All About Me, The Code of Trust, and his latest, Sizing People Up where he shares a six-step system he developed to predict anyone’s behavior based on their words, goals, action, and situation.

This was such a fascinating discussion and one that if the lessons are applied, it will drastically improve every facet of your life.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, let me pause the conversation very quickly to talk with you about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council.

Membership in the Iron Council is up 15% over the past 2-3 weeks because men are beginning to see the value of banding with other strong, successful, like-minded men. And, that is exactly what you’re going to get when you band with us inside the Iron Council.

First, we’re going to help you identify your track to run on – not ours, but yours. And, once you have identified that track, we’re going to give you the framework, tools, and accountability to ensure that you stay the course until completion.

If you know there is more inside of you but don’t quite know how to unlock it, band with us, and we’ll show you exactly how to do it. You can learn more and lock in your spot at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

The Power of Uncomfortable Truths | SEAN WHALEN
01:25:47

The truth is often uncomfortable. And, frankly, most of us aren’t willing to take a deep, hard look into what we know to be true. We do this because we’re afraid. Afraid of what we might see. Afraid of what it may expose in ourselves. Afraid of what the truth may require us to do moving forward.

My guest today is a friend and long-term mentor of mine. His name is Sean Whalen and one thing he’s been consistent about his desire to seek and share the truth. And, he’s revealed, for better and worse, some truths about myself that I was unwilling to acknowledge for a very long time. Today we talk about why some people despise the success of others, acknowledging what kind of men you need to become to achieve what you want, why most people are blissfully dissatisfied, and the power of embracing uncomfortable truths.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Producing results
  • Tearing others down
  • Identifying with pain
  • Building a physique
  • Addictive patterns
  • Breaking social contracts
  • Validating mediocrity
  • Change your circle
  • Habits & rituals
  • Implanting your vision
  • Loving yourself
  • Becoming a machine

 

SEAN WHALEN

My guest today is my good friend and long-term mentor, Sean Whalen. He has been instrumental in helping me build Order of Man into what it is but more importantly, me into who I am.

I don’t always agree with or, to a degree, get along with him but I believe that is the power of a coach and mentor – someone who you can respect but challenges you to look at life in a way that is difficult and uncomfortable.

And Sean certainly makes people feel uncomfortable. He says out loud what most people believe to be things you don’t say at all and, in the process, his videos and messages have been viewed hundreds of millions of times. Obviously, he’s a very polarizing man but he forces you to look at situations and events in new ways and has personally helped me achieve some incredible results in my life.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, let me pause the conversation very quickly. I’ve seen a tremendous uptick in new members in the Iron Council and I can only imagine the reason is that in times of uncertainty, men look to bring stability and order to the chaos.

And, that’s exactly what we’re doing inside the Iron Council – giving you the tools and framework to predictably and efficiently produce results in your life.

If you’re trying to start a business, rekindle a romantic relationship, connect with your kids, lose that spare tire, build wealth, become more influential, or any other goal that you may be working on, the Iron Council, has what you need to make it a reality.

When you join us, you’ll get the tools and framework you need to do what you’ve simply been daydreaming about for a very long time.

If you’re ready to get to work, join us. We’re not going to do it for you but we do have a track for you to run on and the accountability that comes from a brotherhood of loyal, committed, successful men.

Being Reasonable in an Age of Unreason | DAVE RUBIN
01:09:06

Reason seems to be in increasingly short supply, which is unfortunate considering some of the messes we’ve found ourselves in will only be solved through reasonable thought, ideas, and people. Also unfortunate is that those who are the loudest seem to be the most unreasonable and only wish to perpetuate the problems we have in modern society and culture.

Today, I am joined by the one and only, Dave Rubin, New York Times Bestselling author of, Don’t Burn This Book: Thinking for Yourself in an Age of Unreason. What I like most about Dave and this conversation is that he’s willing to talk about the things you’re not “supposed” to talk about including the myth of the gender gap, why “hate speech” should be protected speech, why not everyone is a Nazi as perpetuated by what he calls, the “lefties,” and ultimately how to be reasonable in a world that seems to be anything but.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Moving towards equality
  • Governmental control
  • Consolidating power
  • Empirical truths
  • The human spirit
  • Valuing individuality
  • Protecting free speech
  • Classic Liberalism
  • Thinking for yourself
  • The best path forward
  • American privilege
  • Be the vocal majority

DAVE RUBIN

As I said before, my guest today is Dave Rubin and I’m sure many of you are already familiar with him and have some preconceived notions about who he is and what he stands for.

I’ve been following him for some time now and am fascinated with his journey from left-leaning progressive to a free-thinking classical liberal. He is the host of the Rubin Report and spent almost two years touring and opening for his friend and mentor, Jordan Peterson.

His background is in standup comedy but he has become extremely well-known for his podcast where he’s interviewed Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, Ben Shapiro, Larry King, Dan Crenshaw, Adam Carolla, and so many more.

Today, he’s here to talk with us about thinking freely and openly about some of our culture’s most polarizing subjects.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, let me hit the pause button on the conversation and introduce you to the Iron Council.

I am amazed by the growth we’ve been experiencing over the past several weeks and I believe it’s because men are beginning to see the value in banding with other men who have their back and want them to succeed.

If you were to strip away everything from the Iron Council, that’s what it’s all about – a band of brothers who will support, encourage, and hold you accountable. And, if you’re like most men, that isn’t something that you have in your life.

And, even if you do, the conversations stay on the surface and never get to the heart of what really matters and all that you’re trying to accomplish as a family man, business owner, and leader in your community.

If you’re ready to forge a powerful bond with like-minded men and chart the path that will lead you to where you want to go, I invite you to join the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Everything is F*cked | MARK MANSON
01:21:37

Hope is something most of us believe is a necessity in order to progress. Without it, would you be driven to do anything meaningful in your life? It’s hope that convinces you of potential rewards on the other side of your efforts. But what if the way you’ve been looking at hope isn’t help you but hindering? And, if that’s the case, is there a more practical, pragmatic way for you to approach hopefulness in a way that will serve you best?

That’s what today’s conversation is all about. I’m joined by New York Times Bestselling Author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and Everything is F*cked, Mark Manson. We talk about the uncomfortable truth few people are willing to admit to themselves, the difference between Master Morality and Slave Morality, how everyone is driven by what he calls, “a God Value,” how pain is the universal constant, and why, in the midst of everything being horrible, you can still have hope.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Getting through it together
  • The new normal
  • A need for certainty
  • Create a daily structure
  • The thinking brain
  • The process of maturity
  • Social accountability
  • Implementing habits
  • Finding new behavior
  • Shifting your perception
  • The uncomfortable truth
  • Gaining approval
  • The need for meaning
  • Sharing your story
  • Instinctual morality
  • Victimhood culture

MARK MANSON

My guest today is the one and only, Mark Manson, and it’s very likely that you are already very familiar with him, or at least, his last two books, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and Everything is F*cked.

He is a New York Times Bestselling Author and a self-described thinker and life enthusiast. Part of the reason for his tremendous success is his no BS approach to self-development. In fact, that’s the reason why I follow him and his words closely. In an environment and popular culture designed to make everyone feel good about themselves, Mark would rather bring to light the uncomfortable truths few are willing to deal with.

Guys, I think you’re going to like this one as much as I enjoyed the conversation. So, sit back, take some notes, and listen to the way it really is.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, our digital brotherhood, the Iron Council continues to grow in these uncertain times. I think that’s because it’s times like these that really cause us to reflect on the type of men we are and how we’re showing up.

For a long time, I knew that I was capable of so much more but it was frustrating knowing that there was a huge gap between what I knew I was capable of and what I was actually doing.

I started hiring mentors and surrounding myself with good and capable men and that’s when things really started to take a turn for the better.

The problem for most men is that they don’t know where connect with the type of men I’m talking about. That’s what the Iron Council is for and, without beating a dead horse about it, if you want to thrive in all aspects of your life, band with other men. It really is that powerful.

Courage Under Fire | OMAR “CRISPY” AVILA
01:07:04

What does it take to exhibit extreme courage under fire? I wish I could tell you there was an exact formula for performing well under life and death pressure but there isn’t. But what I can tell you is that my guest today, Omar ‘Crispy’ Avila is a man who has done just that.

When in Iraq, his vehicle was hit by an IED sending it six feet in the air. I’m not going to ruin the story by telling you about the resulting fallout and how Crispy conducted himself but I will say you’re not going to want to miss it. We also talk about using humor as a way to calm a situation, overcoming survivor’s guilt, how to train properly for unknown events, and how every man can learn to develop courage under fire.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Serving your community
  • Letting your guard down
  • Making light of a situation
  • Comedy as therapy
  • Joining the infantry
  • Moving forward in life
  • Laying down fire
  • Extended deployment
  • Losing faith in God
  • Keeping your composure
  • The Green Zone
  • Flying into Germany
  • Focus under chaos
  • Survivors guilt
  • The recovery process
  • Finding inner peace

OMAR ‘CRISPY’ AVILA

My guest today is Omar ‘Crispy’ Avila and he is a retired army combat veteran. But more than that he is someone who is extremely influential in the veteran community and has used his unfortunate circumstances to lift and inspire millions of people across the planet.

He sustained catastrophic damage to his body when his vehicle was hit with an IED and survived over 75% of his body burned and been rendered nearly blind.

I had the opportunity to meet him at SHOT Show several months ago and invited him to join us on the podcast because I have always been inspired by how he lives his life, uses humor with the Black Rifle Coffee Company team to inspire, and the kind of man he is.

PRIORITIZE AND EXECUTE

If you’re anything like me, it’s easy for you to fall into the trap of consumption. I mean, you’re listening to this podcast right now which can be beneficial but if you never apply any of what you learn, is it even useful?

This is the trap of the self-development space – consumption without production.

But in the Iron Council for the month of May, we’re talking about prioritizing the information you have and the objectives you’ve identified for yourself and putting them into action.

It’s about unpacking what you want to accomplish in your health, relationships, business, and life, identifying the “order of operations,” and putting in the work required to make it happen.

If you fall into “paralysis by analysis,” and often consume more than you produce, this is the month for you to band with 530 like-minded men who will help you accomplish more in the next 90 days than you ever have in a year.

How to Rewire Your Mind and Body | SCOTT CARNEY
01:07:41

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Most of us have heard some variation of that quote accredited to Viktor Frankl but most of us don’t know how to manage that space effectively and condition our minds and bodies to respond properly.

That’s why today’s conversation with New York Times Bestselling Author, Scott Carney, is crucial. During our discussion, we talk about the gap between stimulus and response, how to put ourselves into a highly-effective flow state, fight and flight chemistry, and how to rewire your mind and body for maximum results.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The placebo effect
  • Western medicine
  • Learning to be resilient
  • Fight or flight responses
  • Giving yourself stress
  • Connecting to the environment
  • The ultimate stress
  • Walking your own path
  • Unmitigated horror
  • Reliving your emotional pass
  • Living the status quo
  • Overriding your response
  • Throwing kettlebells
  • Practicing trust and empathy
  • A different point of reference
  • Creating bandwidth

SCOTT CARNEY

My guest today is New York Times Bestselling, Scott Carney, author of What Doesn’t Kill Us, and his new book, The Wedge.

He is an investigative journalist and anthropologist. He’s done work for Wired, Men’s Journal, Playboy, Discover, Outside, and Fast Company and he gained a lot of notoriety as he trained with Wim Hof. Originally, he intended on debunking a lot of Wim’s teachings but found the practices to be life-changing and a critical part of his life and work.

Scott’s been a friend for several years since he talked with us about his book, What Doesn’t Kill Us and you’re going to hear how much excitement he has for life. Quite frankly, it’s infectious.

IRON COUNCIL

As we close out the month of April in the Iron Council, I wanted to give you the heads up and let you know that for the month of May, we’ll be covering the topic of Prioritize and Execute.

Obviously, we’re living in some very interesting times and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for many men to navigate the uncertain waters. So, for the month of May, we’ll be doing a deep dive into effective strategies for organizing and prioritizing your life and, more important, taking massive action that will produce the biggest results.

We’ll uncover variables that are keeping you back and distracting you from what you want to achieve and give you the opportunity to band with 500+ high-achieving men to hold you accountable and potentially give you the kick in the pants you need.

I’m sure, by now, you’re aware of the powerful team an Echelon Front led by Navy SEAL Commander, Jocko Willink. At this point, I’ve had the majority of his team on the podcast including my guest today, Mike Sarraille.

Today, Mike talks with us about the power of the veteran community in the civilian sector. We go into some topics that aren’t usually addressed regarding transitioning military members including biases against veterans, the bitterness and entitlement some veterans develop, translatable skills from military to civilian life, and, ultimately, how we put our nation’s toughest warriors to work.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Joining the Marines
  • The demands of work
  • What’s truly important
  • Veteran suicide
  • Marching on Washington
  • Proving your worth
  • Finding the best
  • Producing value
  • Finding your passion
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Process of alimentation
  • Putting in your time
  • Positive Intent
  • Become irreplaceable
  • The pursuit of excellence
  • Feeling undervalued
  • Translatable skills
  • Focusing on soft skills
  • After action review
  • Transitioning soldiers out

MIKE SARAILLE

My guest today is Mike Sarraille. He is a retired Recon Marine and  Navy SEAL and, more recently the co-founder of EF Overwatch and leadership instructor/strategic advisor for Echelon Front.

He served alongside Jocko Willink and Leif Babin with SEAL Team THREE and played a pivotal role in the Battle of Ramadi in 2006. He also served as the primary leadership instructor for all officers graduating from the SEAL training pipeline and worked in the Joint Special Operations Command where he completed multiple combat tours.

Mike is a recipient of the Silver Star, six Bronze Stars, two Defense Meritorious Service Medals, and a Purple Heart. Today he is here to talk with us about his experience and how to put our nation’s warriors to work.

IRON COUNCIL

The Iron Council is growing. I think part of the reason for that is, during times of crisis, men know and have a desire to step into the positions that will best serve their families and communities. It’s built into our DNA to lead, especially in times of crisis.

And, that’s exactly what we’re doing to equip the men who band with us inside our exclusive brotherhood, The Iron Council. When you join with us, we’re going to give you the foundation for growth, success, and effective leadership as a father, husband, business owner, and community leader.

And, on top of that, you’re going to have a path to run on and a place where you can develop the camaraderie most men don’t get outside of military service or team sports.

If you’re ready to step up and want the framework and the accountability to do so, join us in the Iron Council by going to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Savage Son | JACK CARR
56:37

My repeat guest, friend, former Navy SEAL, and author of the James Reece series which includes Terminal List, True Believer, and his newest (released today), Savage Son.

His name is Jack Carr and I take every opportunity I can to talk with him. And, if you’ve listened to any of our previous episodes, you’ll know exactly why. Jack is one of the most genuine men I know and I’ve always been fascinated with his transition from warrior to author.

Today, we talk about putting yourself in the public eye, pursuing something you’ve always been interested in, how military combat compares to civilian life and the life of a writer and forging the path you’ve always wanted to walk.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Emerging opportunities
  • Leveling the playing field
  • Social media
  • Providing value
  • Those who sacrificed
  • Wasted bandwidth
  • The Cold War
  • Who you follow
  • An unassuming demeanor
  • Being kind to people
  • Flipping your switch
  • What’s next
  • The hero’s journey
  • Dealing with bureaucracy 
  • Adapting quickly
  • Standard operating procedures

JACK CARR

My guest today is the one and only Jack Carr. He spent over 20 years in Naval Special Warfare as a SEAL Sniper, Troop Commander, and a Task Unit Commander leading a team in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It’s probably a big reason his last three books are so extremely credible – he’s used his decades of combat experience as the foundation for the immense amount of research that goes into his works.

Jack is also an avid hunter, a husband, and a father. He’s also a helluva guy as I’ve gotten to know him over the past several years and enjoyed our friendship.

And an update since we originally recorded this episode at SHOT Show several months ago, Jack’s book, Terminal List will become a TV Series with Chris Pratt playing James Reece.

I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.

IRON COUNCIL

I’ve got to say that regardless of the issues you may be dealing with due to the fallout of Coronavirus, this time truly can be a blessing in disguise if you’re willing to look at it that way.

I can’t think of a time where I’ve been more focused and distraction-free in my life than right now. Over the past four weeks, I’ve…

  • Lost 11lbs and 2.5% body fat
  • Increased revenue by 23% over last month
  • Completed my gym build-out
  • Completed my podcast studio renovation
  • Read 6 books
  • Completed the outline of my next book
  • Secured 7 high-caliber podcast guests
  • Appeared on 12 podcasts
  • Reached over 100,000 YouTube subscribers

I don’t tell you this to brag. I tell you this because there is a tremendous opportunity for you to crush your life right now. And, if you’re interested in how I and thousands of other men are doing it, consider joining us inside the Iron Council.

I’ve told you enough about it by now but I’d strongly encourage you to get off the sidelines and into the game so you too can produce the results you’re after and squeeze the most out of every minute you have.

Head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil to learn more and lock in your spot.

How to Think Like a Rocket Scientist | OZAN VAROL
01:05:18

We’ve all heard the term, “It’s not rocket science.” And, while that is true of most conversations, topics, and activities, there are benefits to thinking about problems the way a rocket scientist does.

Today, I am joined by Ozan Varol, a rocket scientist who formerly worked with NASA. In today’s conversation, we talk about what it means to test as you fly and fly as you test, the difference between strategies and tactics and why it matters, why it’s important to give you mental space to play, and why thinking like a rocket scientist will help you make giant leaps in your personal and professional life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Thinking practically
  • Conceiving ideas
  • Questioning assumptions
  • Breaking down systems
  • Creating new markets
  • Celebrating failure
  • Learning from failure
  • Doing things differently
  • Surviving your own success
  • Thinking you’re a failure
  • Reframing questions
  • Generating better answers
  • Making better decisions
  • The worst-case scenario
  • Find your breaking point

OZAN VAROL

My guest today is Ozan Varol. He was born in Istanbul and, at the age of 17, he moved to the United States alone to study astrophysics.

While he was there, he served on the operations team for the Mars Exploration Rovers. If that wasn’t enough, he then pivoted and graduated first in his class from law school and earned the highest grade point average in his law school’s history.

He now teaches law as a professor and his works have been featured in the Wall Street Journal,  Newsweek, TIME, CNN, and the Washington Post.

And, today, he is here to share some of his knowledge with us from his new book, Think Like a Rocket Scientist.

IRON COUNCIL

That’s why I want to invite you to join us in our brotherhood, the Iron Council. I’ve seen a lot of online groups popping up over the past month or so but we’ve been working for the last 5 years to ensure that when you join us, you’ll have a proven track record of success to tap into.

The Power of Vision Driven Leadership | MICHAEL HYATT
01:06:35

When most of us think about leadership, we think about inspiring, motivating, and influencing others. But rarely do we think deeply about our vision for a business, organization, or family. Ironic considering vision is the foundation of inspiration, motivation, and influence.

Today, I am privileged to be joined by a man who has been a tremendous leader to me on my path to build and lead the Order of Man movement. We cover so much in this conversion including the importance of a “vision grid,” how to effectively respond to resistance, four characteristics of great leadership, the difference between your “circle of concern” and your “circle of influence,” and the power of vision-driven leadership.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The science of different things
  • The power of simplicity
  • Distilling information
  • Where all change begins
  • Casting vision
  • Hacking your belief system
  • Delusional vs. believable
  • The scope of possibilities
  • Vision vs. strategy
  • Adjusting your vision
  • Fear of missing out
  • Diagnosing your life 36:40
  • Finding inspiration
  • Being able to sell it
  • An inspirational-deficit world
  • Think of the end from the beginning

MICHAEL HYATT

My guest today is Michael Hyatt. He is an author, podcaster, speaker, and former chairman of Thomas Nelson publishing.

I came across Michael’s work years ago as I was launching the Order of Man podcast and for the last 5 years, I’ve been following his advice and implementing his strategies for growing and leading a movement, building effective organizational strategies, and taking charge of my business and personal life.

So, when his team reached out requesting to have Michael on our podcast, I jumped at the opportunity to have a conversation with a man who has been extremely influential in my life.

He is a New York Times Bestselling author and today, he is here to talk with us about his new book, The Vision Driven Leader.

IRON COUNCIL

This month (April 2020) in the Iron Council, we’re discussing and implementing strategies from our monthly conversation, A Life Examined.

In the midst of all this Coronavirus stuff, it’s likely that you have a bit more time on your hands than normal and, rather than waste this valuable time, you ought to consider using it as an opportunity to learn and grow.

And, that’s exactly where the Iron Council comes in. When you band with us, you’ll have access to our monthly assignments, challenges, accountability systems and tools, and brotherhood all designed to help you make the most of every day.

And, this is a great time to contemplate the purpose of your life and formulate a plan for becoming the man you have a desire to become.

Winning the War with Coronavirus | DR. GREGORY POLAND
01:04:30

Obviously, the world is entering unprecedented and unchartered territory. Every day, we’re hearing new information about the Coronavirus – some credible and some not so credible. It’s times like these that we need to turn to the experts to look for answers and solutions to the problems we face.

That’s why I’m honored to be joined by Dr. Gregory Poland, a professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic and director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine research group. Today, we talk about common misconceptions about the Coronavirus, the best approach to dealing with this threat, how vaccines are being developed, the eventuality of this disease, how this virus differs from others, and how we’ll win the war against Coronavirus.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Enforcing social distancing
  • This virus is unique
  • We don’t know the full extent
  • Flue strain circulations
  • Isolate vs. distance
  • It’ll hurt us economically
  • Shielding the most vulnerable
  • This is a war
  • Building up antibodies
  • Developing vaccines

  • Taking unnecessary risk
  • Sharing out of your plenty
  • Mental and spiritual health
  • Funding global health
  • Countries taking responsibilities
  • How to protect your family
  • Proper handwashing
  • Using the right-hand sanitizer

DR. GREGORY POLAND

Today, I am joined by Dr. Gregory Poland, Mary Lowell Leary professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He is also the director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group and editor-in-chief of the medical journal, Vaccine.

In addition, he previously served as the president of the Health Defense Board and is the recipient of the Secretary of Defense Medal for Outstanding Public Service. With more than 30 years of work in the field of viruses and vaccines, his team is currently using immunological testing and other methods to develop a vaccine for COVID-19.

IRON COUNCIL

It’s likely that, in the wake of the Coronavirus fallout, you’ve been isolated to some degree. And, if that’s the case (even if it’s not), it’s crucial that you develop and maintain relationships with other men who are motivated and ambitious as you are.

That’s where the Iron Council comes in. We’ve created a network of over 500 men, all with their own unique perspectives and objectives, who are willing and able to accomplish big things in their lives and help you do the same.

And, although all of the men have differing goals, we’ve banded together in a common goal to become the most effective and capable men we can be (which, during these trying times, is crucial).

We have a time and battle-tested system for helping you accomplish big things on the home, personal, and business front and all you have to do is tap into the framework and network, and do the work required.

Redefining Yourself | TUCKER MAX
01:02:32

Most of you are familiar with Tucker Max. Regardless of what you think about him, there is no fence-sitting. You either love the guy or hate him. But that’s part of the reason I wanted to have a conversation with him – to find out what makes him so polarizing and how he feels about that.

That said, the biggest reason I wanted to talk with him is to learn about his ability to redefine himself from college frat boy to successful entrepreneur, husband, and father. I think we can all relate messing some things up along the path and many of us have or are working on our redemption story. Today, Tucker and I talk about speaking the truth, overcoming judgment, the reality of the “zero f’s” mentality, and, ultimately, how to redefine yourself.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The pain of staying the same
  • Fixing what’s inside
  • Going through therapy
  • Getting fired
  • Getting rejected
  • Writing a Best Seller
  • Scribe Media
  • Finding your personal truth
  • Negotiating reality
  • Tribal warfare
  • Consumerism culture
  • Plant medicine therapy
  • The best version of yourself
  • Separating from your ego
  • Breaking down barriers
  • Controlling the narrative
  • Masculine movement of feminism
  • How to uncover your story

TUCKER MAX

Most of you know my guest today, Tucker Max. If you’re like me, you ran across one of his New York Times Bestselling books in an airport or bookstore. That’s likely the case because he’s sold over 4,500,000 copies of them.

He’s been credited with starting the literary genre, “fratire” where he detailed and documented his college-day exploits. And, although, that’s what made him famous, his ability to redefine himself from those days to who he is today is what really had me interested in talking with him.

He’s now the founder of Scribe Media and is helping other people tell their own stories in their own unique way and give a voice to those who need it and for those who need to hear it.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, you’ve heard about the Iron Council before but what I wanted to share with you today is something that we are working on starting next week.

We call it the Twelve-Week Battle Plan and it’s a system we’ve developed over the past five years to help you accomplish more in a 90-day span than you potentially have in an entire year. In fact, when I wrote my book, Sovereignty, I completed it in a Battle Planning cycle using the same system the members of the Iron Council are using.

Obviously, life has taken a very strange turn for most of you in 2020 but using the Battle Plan and the accountability found inside the Iron Council will ensure that you get back out ahead of things and make the most of a very strange situation.

We’ve created an event that will quite literally transform the relationship that you and your boy have together and give you the tools, resources, and framework for you to usher your boy into manhood in a world that seems to be increasingly dismissive of it.

If you’re even the least bit interested, head to www.orderofman.com/legacy to watch a quick video of our last event and learn more about what the weekend entails. But do it quickly as we only have 3 spots remaining.

A Primer on Biblical Masculinity | BISHOP ROBERT BARRON
54:38

Today, we tackle a conversation we’ve never had on this podcast – biblical masculinity. As you men are well aware, Order of Man is a non-religious movement but that doesn’t mean we can’t or shouldn’t look at all available paths to the type of men we have a desire to be.

And, I can think of no better guest to have this type of conversation than Bishop Robert Barron, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. During our conversation, we talk about David as an example of biblical masculinity, individual sovereignty vs. God’s sovereignty, literal and figurative interpretations of the bible, Jesus Christ as a fighter, and choosing to live the commandments.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The great narratives
  • How David emerges
  • Lessons of humility
  • A willingness to engage
  • Man’s capability to protect
  • Engaging through non-violence
  • After the resurrection
  • Listening to the Lord
  • The sovereignty of God
  • Governing your family
  • Discerning your mission
  • Twelve-year-old Jesus
  • Finding true power
  • Clinging to worldly power
  • The discipline of the gym
  • Respect for your freedom
  • Choosing your character
  • Building a moral wall
  • Legitimate self-care
  • Biblical literacy

BISHOP ROBERT BARRON

Gents, I’ve been looking forward to introducing my guest to you today. His name is Bishop Robert Barron. He currently serves as the auxiliary bishop to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and is the founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries.

He’s been asked to speak at Facebook, Google, and Amazon on the subject of religion, discussed and debated with Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro, and serves as a religious correspondent for NBC, Fox News, and CNN.

In addition, he reaches nearly 2,000,000 people on his social media accounts and over 350,000 people receive his daily email reflections. Obviously, the man is very influential and, during our discussion today, I think you’ll hear why.

LEGACY

Men (specifically fathers), we are coming down to the wire on closing down registration for the LEGACY EXPERIENCE and I want you and your son to be there.

Check your calendars because it’s going to be held June 11th-14th, 2020 on my property here in Maine.

This is an experience unlike any other and it’s designed to be 3 ½ days of extensive physical and intellectual competition and camaraderie between you and 19 other fathers/sons.

Living Life by Your Own Rules | VINCENT “ROCCO” VARGAS
01:09:48

It’s easy to get distracted by everything that life has to offer us as men. Whether we’re attempting to live up to impossible standards, chasing other people’s dreams, or spinning around in circles being busy, but not productive, you’ve got to find a way to focus your attention and energy on the things that truly matter.

My guest today is Vincent “Rocco” Vargas. I’ll get into all that he is doing in his life in a bit but for now, let’s just say that he’s found a way to identify and pursue what really matters to him. We talk about becoming a “Ride or Die, Dad,” what it means to operate from your “Power Base,” evolving your inner circle, learning to lead and follow, and how to become a confident, grounded man.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A renaissance man
  • Identifying success
  • Morals, values, and beliefs
  • Importance of being fit
  • Parallels to leadership
  • Communicating fairly
  • Maintaining respect
  • Ride or die
  • Fine-tuning mistakes
  • Self-accountability
  • Responding to failure
  • Establishing your pawer-base
  • Building future leaders
  • Striving to be more
  • Having the right motives
  • Working with veterans
  • The growth of an actor

VINCENT “ROCCO” VARGAS

My guest today is Vincent “Rocco” Vargas and if ever there was a Renaissance man, he is it.

He is a former Army Ranger and Drill Sergeant, husband, father, barber, entrepreneur, coach, actor, producer, and writer. In the couple of years that I’ve gotten to know him, I can tell that not only is he someone who is willing to pursue his interests and dreams, he’s also someone who knows exactly what he wants outside of notoriety, popularity, and accolades – to be a great family man.

Today, you’re going to hear what that looks like, how he found his path and the strategies he uses to pursue everything he wants.

LEGACY

Gents, we’re getting very close on closing up our 3rd inaugural Legacy Experience which is being held June 11th – 14th, 2020 on my property in Maine.

I just had a contractor come out last week for a couple of buildouts we’re taking care of prior to our fathers and sons who will be attending.

This is going to be an event unlike any other for you and your son between the ages of 8 – 15. The whole weekend is designed to be mentally, physically, and emotionally demanding so that you and your son will walk away with a new perspective on your relationship and a deeper bond between you two.

I have seen incredible transformations in father/son relationships through this 3 ½ experience and I want you guys to experience that for yourself. If you’re interested, head to www.orderofman.com/legacy to watch a quick video and lock in one of the last 2 remaining spots.

Again, head to www.orderofman.com/legacy to claim your seat.

Rational Thinking in an Irrational World | SAL DI STEFANO
01:10:13

Guys, you’re really going to enjoy today’s conversation with my friend and repeat guest Sal Di Stefano. You may know him from MindPump Media where they focus on physical and mental health primarily but Sal is so well-versed with trends in society that I really wanted to have the conversation we have today.

We talk about logical fallacies, emotional hype, “cancel culture,” victimhood as a perceived virtue, why superman isn’t brave at all, and, ultimately, how to think rationally in an irrational world.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Effective communication
  • Seeking smart people
  • Having your mind changed
  • The marketplace of ideas
  • Collective truths
  • Rolling the dice
  • Understanding generality
  • Long term behavior changes
  • Self-growth
  • Being a victim
  • Marketing 101
  • The free market
  • Rational Emotion

SAL DI STEFANO

As I mentioned earlier, my guest today is Sal Di Stefano. He is the co-founder and co-host of MindPump Media.

The man is a natural intellect as you’ll hear during our conversation and has taken his passion for information and learning and applied it to the realm of physical fitness. He’s been through some ups and downs regarding his own path of health and fitness and has used his extensive research and knowledge to create their MAPS programming.

Now he along with his co-hosts, Adam, Justin, and Doug, they host the MindPump Media Podcast which is reaching the masses and has been downloaded tens of millions of times.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.

How to Become More Mindful and Present | DONNIE VINCENT
01:17:48

With as much as we are inundated within our daily lives, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to be completely present and mindful of the people and things that really matter. In fact (and in fairness to today’s conversation), this podcast could actually be distracting you from what it is you should be doing.

Today, I’m joined by my friend Donnie Vincent. Many of you know him as an avid outdoorsman, hunter, and conservationist but we tackle a different (but equally important) conversation today – being present and mindful of who you are and what you’re after. We cover social media, finding work you love, dealing with a lack of confidence, taking care of yourself first, and ensuring you’re focused on just the right things.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Bridging the gap
  • Sharing the experience
  • Uncovering your path
  • Capturing imagery
  • Celebrating the wins
  • Smoke and mirrors
  • Collecting shiny things
  • Discovering who you are
  • Living a positive life
  • Facing the pressure
  • Moving your body
  • Investing in yourself
  • Fighting like hell
  • The foundation of truth

DONNIE VINCENT

Many of you know my guest today, Donnie Vincent but I think you’ll see and hear a side of him that you haven’t heard before.

Donnie is an explorer, a biologist, a conservationist, and a sportsman. And, I think after listening to our conversation, you’ll hear how thoughtful and intentional he is about how exactly he lives his life.

Donnie is an incredible storyteller and through his media company, Sicmanta, he has a powerful gift in bringing people into his outdoor adventures and connecting them with his passion for the wild.

After hearing him today, you’re going to understand what I mean and walk away inspired to lean into your life more fully.

LEGACY

My legacy is something that is very important to me. I’m sure it is for you too.

Last week, I had the opportunity to spend 4 days with my two oldest boys and, as we laughed and joked, shared stories, and had an adventure, I couldn’t help but wonder if I am doing enough to prepare them for life as their father.

In fact, it’s the thing that keeps me up and night more than anything else. I’m sure that, as a father, you feel very much the same way.

For this reason, I launched the LEGACY EXPERIENCE  three years ago as a 3 ½ day event to bring together fathers and sons around a group of strong, competitive, competent men, lessons, and resources.

I want to invite you to claim one of the last 2 spots remaining for our third installment in Maine on June 11-14, 2020. If you’re even remotely interested, please head to www.orderofman.com/leagacy to learn more and lock in one of those last remaining spots.

Becoming a Warrior Poet | JOHN LOVELL
01:11:47

It seems to me that a lot of men have a hard time striking the balance between warrior and philosopher. For a long time, I was under the impression that men are either one or the other – the strong, rugged archetype or the smart, intellectual archetype.

My guest today, John Lovell, founder of Warrior Poet Society, makes the case for why and how we, as men can be both. This has been a conversation a long time in the works and John has been requested by you guys countless times. We discuss what it means to be strong and smart, how to apply philosophy practically in our day to day lives, a basic introduction into firearms for everyday carry, and what it means and how to become a Warrior Poet.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Failure of men
  • Qualified advice
  • Evaluating feedback
  • The pain of jealousy
  • Being under authority
  • First-world problems
  • Appreciating food
  • Beating yourself up
  • Tools for training
  • Force on force
  • Mentorship
  • Shoulder to shoulder
  • The average gunfight
  • Selecting guns

JOHN LOVELL

My guest today is someone who you guys have requested so many times and, fortunately, I had the opportunity to sit down with him at SHOT Show in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago.

Our conversation was bound to happen as his organization, Warrior Poet Society is so closely related to what we’re doing here with Order of Man.

John is a special operations war veteran having served multiple combat tours to Iraq and Afghanistan. He’s also served as a Christian missionary to Central America – which is a testament to the duality of his Warrior Poet philosophy.

And, on top of that, John teaches tactical pistol, rifle, and small unit tactics, and many other classes around the U.S.

We had a lot of fun during our conversation and I can’t imagine it will be long before we do it again. Enjoy.

LEGACY

I made a post on Twitter the other day stating that, “A woman can teach a boy to be a good man but not how to be good at being a man – the distinction between morality and capability. Morality alone is not enough. A man must be capable. And, that is the responsibility of the elder men.”

I believe so much in that statement that we created an experience to help put it into practice. It’s called the Legacy Experience and it’s designed to help you as a father usher your son into manhood by introducing him to the frameworks he’ll need to thrive.

Our event is held June 11-14th in Maine and over the course of 3 ½ days, you and your son will be competing with other men, developing new skills, and forging deeper bonds together.

The Right Kind of Crazy | CLINT EMERSON
01:12:00

We all know the world can be a dangerous place and if a man hasn’t prepared himself for all that may come up, frankly, he’s shirking his role and responsibility as a man. It’s in our nature, after all, to protect, provide, and preside and yet so many men seem utterly incapable of doing so.

Today, I am joined by a friend, repeat guest, and former Navy SEAL, Clint Emerson. We talk about our nature as men, how society has seemed to go soft, why hazing in the right context is good for men and culture, keeping ourselves and others safe in dangerous environments, and our need to evolve as men.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Time in the Military
  • The SEAL brand
  • Making bad decisions
  • SEAL culture
  • Proving yourself
  • What it’s really about
  • The “new guy” mentality
  • Fulfilling your mission
  • Violence
  • Situational awareness
  • Following the herd
  • Train your brain
  • Simple preparedness
  • Macro vs. micro-skills
  • The ultimate equalizer
  • The great good
  • A creative outlet
  • An exchange of value
  • Crisis management

CLINT EMERSON

As I mentioned before, my guest today is former Navy SEAL, New York Times Best Selling Author, and security specialist, Clint Emerson.

Clint has combined his more than 20 years of military service to provide some of the best personal and corporate safety and security services. He owns Escape the Wolf which provides corporate safety solutions and training and Violent Nomad which is focused on the “darker” side of keeping yourself and others safe.

He is also the author of 100 Deadly Skills and his newest book, The Right Kind of Crazy: My Life as a Navy SEAL, Covert Operative, and Boy Scout from Hell.

LEGACY

You’ve heard me talking about the Legacy Experience over the past several months and I’m glad to tell you that we still have a few spots available for fathers and their sons between the ages of 8-15.

I have quite a few people ask if I’m scared to raise boys in today’s society and I typically respond with something like, “With the type of boys society is currently raising, my sons are going to be kings.”

I know you feel the same way although you may not feel like you have everything you need to ensure that’s the case. When you join us on June 11-14th, 2020, we’re going to equip you and your son with the tools, frameworks, and instruction to ensure your son becomes that man you have a desire for him to become. You’re raising a king. We want to help.

LEGACY

I know I’ve been talking about it for the last couple of months but if you are a father of a boy between the ages of 8-15, I want to invite you to our 3rd Legacy event on my property in Maine.

The whole goal of the Legacy experience is to create a rite of passage of sorts and equip you, as your son’s father, with the tools, resources, and conversations he needs to thrive as a boy becoming a man.

Tapping Into Your Warrior Archetype | CHRIS ALBERT

Warrior is a term that gets thrown around a lot these days. Most men have the desire, to some degree to develop and hone their warrior spirit. And, despite the fact that many men have never considered themselves warriors or served in the military, it is possible and advantageous to approach your life in the very much the same way a warrior approaches his.

Today, I am joined by Marine Corps veteran and entrepreneur, Chris Albert to discuss exactly what it means to be a warrior. We discuss how to lead yourself when no one is telling you what to do, what it means to “slay dragons” and make yourself capable of doing so, improving your internal dialogue, and how to tap into the warrior archetype.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Delivering veteran solutions
  • Learning online business
  • Teaching people how to be free
  • Falling into tyranny
  • Facing confrontation
  • Slaying dragons
  • Becoming passive
  • Letting yourself go
  • Deep family roots
  • Getting started
  • Absorb everything you can
  • The epidemic of suicide
  • Alienating yourself
  • Harnessing your skills

CHRIS ALBERT

My guest today is Chris Albert and, as I said before he is a Marine Corps veteran and founder of Warrior Soul.

After leaving the military, Chris went into bodybuilding eventually owning one of the most well-known gyms in the world – Metroflex Gym. In addition, he is a trained social scientist with expertise in conflict resolution and decision making.

He’s taken his skills and experience and applied them in helping business owners and other individuals tap into the warrior spirit and produce incredible results in their life.

LEGACY

Gents, allow me to hit the pause button very quickly and tell you about our first-ever Maine Legacy Event.

This experience will be held June 11-14th, 2020 on my property here in Maine and it’s a father/son event like no other. If you’re anything like me, ushering your son into manhood is one of your biggest concerns. It’s one of the few things that really keeps you up and night.

Over the course of 3 days, we’ve designed an experience to push, test, and inspire both you and your son to do and be more. We’ll be shooting archery, participating in physical challenges, competing in Jiu-Jitsu, and learning the frameworks for success in life with the 20 other father/son combos that will be joining you.

Me and the Mrs. on Marriage and Life | TRICIA MICHLER
01:44:13

Back by popular demand, my favorite guest joins me again on the podcast.  And, in case you don’t know who that it, it’s my wife. Look, the reality is that all the guests that I have had on have offered some tremendous insight and value but my thought is that if you can’t get things right with your wife, nothing else really matters that much.

Today, we talk about the struggles we’ve had in our marriage, why she wants me to lead our family, what women look for in men, the “patriarchy,” kissing through the beard, getting your wife on board with your self-development journey, and a whole lot more.

SHOW HIGHLIGHT

  • Think before you speak
  • Leading the family
  • Fulfilling family roles
  • Keeping the other in-check
  • Internal dialogue
  • Taking stock
  • Letting your guard down
  • Working things out
  • Learning new tools
  • Being her advocate
  • Taking your last name
  • Explaining the Iron Council
  • What it means to be a woman
  • Being the protector
  • Maintaining a healthy balance
  • Aspects of a good woman
  • Advice for couples
  • How you should treat a woman

TRICIA MICHLER

As I mentioned before, my guest today is my wife, Tricia Michler. We’ve been together for 17 years now and married for 15. We’ve had our ups and downs and have gone through a lot together and, after our previous episodes together (and the positive response), I figured it was time to bring her back on again.

She’s my beautiful wife, mother to our four children, a stay-at-home mom/homemaker, and someone who adds a lot of love, laughter, and spontaneity to my life. Frankly, I’m not sure how I would do life without her in it.

LEGACY

Gents, we’ve talked a little about children in this episode and I hope you can see how important ours are to us. If you have children, I know you feel the same way about yours.

But more and more, it seems the world is stacked against our children – specifically our young men. And, a couple of years ago, I wanted to throw my hat in the ring and do something about that.

That is why we created the Legacy Experience – a father/son event being held June 11-14, 2020. The experience is designed to push you and your son physically, mentally, and emotionally and help forge and foster the bond between you and him. Essentially, we created this experience to help you as his father usher him into manhood.

01:20:03

As you roll into 2020, a lot of you listening are likely interested in leading more effectively in your life. You also likely realize how fulfilling, rewarding, and profitable becoming a good leader can be. But frankly, there are so many traps on the path to leadership.

That’s why I’ve been looking forward to talking with the Learning Leader himself, Ryan Hawk. Today we cover the distinctions between leading, managing, and coaching, the blessing and curse of ambition, when to lead and when to follow, and how to foster commitment in others over compliance.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The fear of judgment
  • The responsibility of leadership
  • Leading yourself first
  • Being the most prepared
  • Taking from the best
  • Deconstructing success
  • Living up to your values
  • Outward leadership
  • Building committed teams
  • Stepping up when times are tough
  • Never outshine the master
  • Stepping into the unknown
  • The mindset of progression
  • Leadership vs Management

RYAN HAWK

Gentlemen, my guest today is Ryan Hawk, the host, and founder of the Learning Leader movement.

Ryan is a keynote speaker, advisor, and most recently, the author of Welcome to Management: How to Grow From Top Performer to Excellent Leader. He’s taken his experience as a professional football player and sales executive, coupled with lessons learned from working with Fortune 500 companies and NFL and NBA teams, and distilled them into practical tips and strategies we can use to lead more effectively.

I had him on the show as the 8th guest to ever join us and his growth over nearly five years has been incredible and a powerful testimony to the effectiveness of his leadership strategies.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, it’s not surprising that many of us thrive under pressure and seem to find a way to rise in the face of adversity and competition.

That is why we wanted to take the element of competition and harness it for powerful growth inside of exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council.

When you band with us, not only will you get all the tools and resources you need to make 2020 your best year ever, you’ll also tap into our competitions happening this month all designed to push us further than we’ve gone before.

Hunting is in Our Blood | ROBBIE KROGER
01:16:21

Whether you’ve never been hunting before, new to the pursuit, or a seasoned veteran, it’s hard to deny that hunting is in our blood. We, as a species have been hunting for hundreds of thousands of years and it hasn’t been until relatively recently that the art and science of hunting have come under so much scrutiny.

That’s why I’m extremely excited to introduce you to my guest today, Robbie Kroger and his project, Blood Origins. We talk about the importance of hunting, its positive effects on the environment and conservation efforts, why there tends to be such a polarization around the topic of hunting, both Robbie and I journey into the world of hunting, and how, whether you like it or not, hunting is in our blood.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The heart of hunters
  • Reaching non-hunters
  • Everyone has a story
  • How we got here today
  • A new wave of hunters
  • The rhetoric against hunting
  • Connecting to a primal urge
  • Hunting provides purpose
  • Sharing your harvest
  • Ending the pain quickly
  • Elevating the narrative of hunting
  • Celebrity mouthpieces
  • Becoming a better man
  • Managing ecosystems
  • Telling more unique stories
  • Reaching those who aren’t hunters


ROBBIE KROGER

My guest today is Dr. Robbie Kroger, a biologist who currently holds a position as the science coordinator for the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council. He is also a professor at Mississippi State University in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Aquaculture.

Outside of that, he founded a movement called Blood Origins which is aimed at sharing the “why” and “who” behind hunting. Where most hunting shows focus on the sport and the ultimate kill, Robbie set out to learn and understand who hunters are and why they do it.

He’s got some absolutely incredible films that document these stories and are share a side of hunting you may have never seen. Enjoy the conversation.

IRON COUNCIL

As of the release of this podcast, it’s New Year’s Eve and you’re likely thinking about what you want to do differently in 2020. That’s noble. You should be thinking about what the new year will hold.

But, unless you’re willing to do something about it and tap into a new way of thinking/operating, it’s likely that you’re going to fall into the same patterns as you always have.

That is exactly why the Iron Council can be so powerful. Hundreds of men have banded with us and used the tools, framework, and accountability to lose weight, salvage relationships, get married, get strong, secure promotions, start a new business, and develop self-confidence through action.

Whatever your objective is for the new year, we’ll help you codify the process of making it a reality. Join us inside the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

The Dangers of Political Correctness, Cancel Culture, and “Wokeness” | ZUBY
01:16:06

Political correctness, cancel culture, and “wokeness” is destroying our ability to have important discussions about some of our most complex problems. Ironically, the people that continually engage in this behavior say they’re trying to help but end up doing the exact opposite.

That’s why I stoked to introduce you to my guest today, Zuby, to talk about these current issues and so much more. We discuss why people have such a difficult time engaging in intellectual dialogue, breaking the mold of people’s expectations, the future of humanity – both good and bad and why the “woke” are destroying civil and critical discourse.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Fitting into a mold
  • Being multi-dimensional
  • Diluting the power of words
  • Uniting people
  • A healthy dose of skepticism
  • Humble expectations
  • Personal responsibility
  • Victimhood mentality
  • Billionaire bashing
  • Resentment & envy
  • The zero-sum mindset
  • Correcting our behavior 
  • Creating your own morality
  • A code of conduct
  • Battling over ideology
  •  

ZUBY

My guest today is unlike any other. His name is Zuby and he is a rapper, podcast host, public speaker, and entrepreneur and graduate from Oxford University.

I started following him several months ago when I saw a video of him destroying the British Women’s deadlifting record in an attempt to bring some logic to the discussion that men and women are biologically different.

He’s a man who is unafraid to share the way that he views the world and has been dubbed extremely controversial even though, he’s really not at all (we discuss this in the conversation).

Gentlemen, please enjoy my fascinating discussion with the one and only Zuby.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, by now you’ve heard all about the Iron Council. Many of you have banded with us. Many of you aren’t interested at all. And, many of you are on the fence about joining.

If you are on the fence, I understand. When I started down this path to fixing myself, it was hard for me to acknowledge that having a little help, instruction, and direction on the path was worthwhile.

I thought I could figure it all out on my own. And, maybe I could. But at what expense? Time and effort. That’s what it would have cost me. By banding with and learning from men who were further down the path than I was, I was able to accelerate the learning process and, therefore the results.

I became a more connected husband, a more engaged father, a more successful businessman and more fulfilled in my life. And, if you’re looking to do the same in your life, band with us – the 500+ who are on the same path and know how to help you get from here to there.

Building Atomic Habits | JAMES CLEAR
01:06:04

Every man knows that building effective and productive habits and systems is a crucial part of teeing him up for success. But, knowing and doing are two different things. And, it seems to me that most men fail to bridge the gap between the two because they don’t know how to build those habits into their lives.

That’s why I’m stoked to bring you into the conversation that James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits, and I had about the subject. Today we discuss why you should focus more about systems and processes rather than goals, the power of changing your identity over changing your habits, an interesting take on discipline, will-power, and self-control you probably haven’t heard of, and focusing on the fundamental unit of progress and ultimate success.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Creating powerful results
  • Working in harmony
  • Eliminating failure
  • A margin of safety
  • The ultimate outcome
  • Associating pain with progress
  • Identity-based habits
  • Your habits are the pathway
  • Behaviors will lead the belief
  • The 2-minute rule
  • Mastering the art of “showing up”
  • The four laws of behavior change
  • Designing your own environment
  • Preparing for battles
  • Adjusting your systems

JAMES CLEAR

Gents, I’m stoked to introduce you to my guest today, Mr. James Clear.

James has been covering the topic of habits, systems, goals, and processes for a very long time and, last year, he wrote a book titled Atomic Habits. Many of you have probably read it. At the time, we weren’t able to schedule a podcast but I’m honored that we were able to have him on now.

He’s the creator of the Habits Academy, a weightlifter, photographer, and a New York Times Best Selling Author and he’s been focusing on biology, neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy to help men become more successful on their own individual paths.

I know you’re really going to enjoy this one and get a ton of value from it.

IRON COUNCIL

Gent’s, I just need to interrupt very quickly because I want to let you know that inside our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, we’re doing a deep-dive into the subject of this conversation – habits.

The 500+ men are uncovering the habits that are working for and against them, creating the systems to ensure they stick with the good habits and eliminate the bad, and holding each other accountable to staying on the path.

In fact, many of the practices that James and I have been discussing in this podcast are the very practices and strategies we’re employing inside the Iron Council.

Fight, F*ck, Feed, Feel | TRAVER BOEHM
01:13:04

In my work over the past 5 years, I’ve seen a disturbing trend in men of sedation, mediocrity, and lifelessness. It seems to me too many men have lost their appetite for adventure, excitement, and a life full of meaning and purpose.

If you feel like that describes you (even to some degree), or you know someone it does, this is going to be a powerful podcast. My guest today is Traver Boehm and he joins me to talk about his new book, Man Uncivilized. We cover what it means to be a man, how and why we should become more “uncivilized,” overcoming playing the perpetual “nice guy,” and showing up fully in our lives and the lives of others.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A risk to your ego
  • Undermining masculinity
  • Relative safety
  • Uncivilized Methodology
  • Finding common ground
  • The standard pathway for me
  • Tapping into your primal side
  • Harnessing the divine
  • How to access emotion
  • Be dangerous but not a danger
  • The X-factor
  • Overcoming legitimate threats
  • Creating an affirmative life
  • Asking for a need to be met


TRAVER BOEHM

Gents, I’m stoked to introduce you to my friend, Traver Boehm.

He is a strength and conditioning coach, a Crossfit gym owner, an MMA fighter, a bodyguard, a surfer, acupuncturist, and so much more. He’s got an incredible resume of interesting life experiences including sitting in complete isolation and pitch-black darkness for a month in Guatemala.

It’s those types of experiences that give Traver perspectives that many of us haven’t considered before. Much of which is documented in his new book, Man Uncivilized, which is what we cover in our conversation today. I haven’t known Travis for long but I definitely admire his passion and excitement for life, what it means to be a man, and a willingness to help others on their own path of masculinity.

IRON COUNCIL

As I’m sure you know, habits make the man. We’ve all heard the quote, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.”

That’s exactly what we’ve covering inside our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, this month – habits. We’re uncovering how to eliminate habits that don’t serve us, discovering ones that do, and implementing systems and processes to ensure that we incorporate the right habits into our lives.

If you’re interested in banding with us and creating the frameworks that will ensure your success on the family and/or career front, head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil to learn more and lock in your spot along with 500+ other men who are on similar paths.

In addition to that, we’ve got my conversation with James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, joining me on the podcast next month to do a deeper dive.

How Not to Think Like a Loser | SCOTT ADAMS
01:20:43

Social media is a powerful tool. If it weren’t for the good social media has done, you likely wouldn’t be tuned into this podcast right now. That said, it seems to me that the use of social media is making us dumber or, at least, encouraging us to behave that way.

My guest today, Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, joins me to talk about exactly why that is and the type of thinking he refers to as “Loserthink.” It’s also the title of his new book subtitled, How Untrained Brains are Ruining America. Today, we talk about the fact that being right and being wrong feel the same, how to determine what battles to fight online, how shaming and mockery can be used positively, and ultimately how you can avoid thinking like a loser.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Augmenting your intelligence
  • Wrestling with social media
  • A “slippery slope”
  • Linear thinking
  • Predictable variables to success
  • Influencing other people
  • Enlightened selfishness
  • Succeeding at systems
  • Mental addiction
  • Adding to your talent stack
  • There’s always a deeper level
  • Engaging in “loser think”
  • Determining a stranger’s thoughts

SCOTT ADAMS

Gents, I am stoked to be able to introduce you to my guest today, Scott Adams. Before I do, I want to make sure I thank my friend, Jordan Harbinger, for introducing us.

You may not know who Scott is right away but I’m sure you know Dilbert. Scott is the creator of Dilbert and the bestselling author of Win Bigly and his new book, Loserthink.

Although Scott really started to gain attention and traction with Dilbert, his political commentary is, in my mind, just as, if not more, important. If you’re interested, you can check out what he has to say on Twitter (@scottadamssays). He’s never been afraid to ruffle a few feathers and I think that is why he has gained such a following – his ability to say what needs to be said and his ability to say it in a way that connects with so many of us.

SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES

Gentlemen, we’re all aware of how important systems and processes are on our path to success but how many men have not created those systems in every facet of their lives. These are the same men who often wonder why that cannot seem to get ahead.

This month, inside the Iron Council, we’ll be exploring and deep-diving into the systems and processes I use and what the 500+ members are using to achieve maximum results. We’ll help you unpackage your systems, explore what’s working, remove what isn’t, and rebuild a strategy that will ensure your success.

If you’d like to know more and build your blueprint for success, band with us inside the Iron Council. You’ll get the tools, challenges, assignments, camaraderie, and brotherhood needed to thrive.

Embracing Strength and Reinvention | CHRIS DUFFIN
01:10:32

Within each one of us, lies untapped potential waiting to be unleashed. Most men go to their graves without realizing that potential. My guest today, strong man, Chris Duffin, is not one of those men. And, he’s encouraging you how to unlock what has been dormant for so long in his book The Eagle and the Dragon.

Today, we talk about what the eagle and the dragon signify in ourselves, stepping into fear and confrontation, how to differentiate between functional and dysfunctional relationships, the pursuit of purpose, and, embracing strength and reinvention.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Over-leveraging yourself
  • Understanding your why
  • Adapting to stress
  • Creating space and margin
  • Separating from your environment
  • Purposeful action
  • Counterproductive people
  • Forming the world around you
  • Pro-activity
  • Reaching into the unknown
  • Becoming a pillar of strength

CHRIS DUFFIN

My guest today is a man who, for many of you listening, needs no introduction. He’s been on the podcast before – roughly three years ago. But with his new book coming out, The Eagle and the Dragon, Chris and I thought it would be good to sit down for a revisit.

He’s one of the strongest men on the planet but he’s also an incredible thinker and in his new book, he illustrates his, interesting childhood and how he raised himself from those conditions to be successful as a businessman, family man, and strong man. I can’t wait to share this one with you today.

LEGACY

A couple of years ago, I recognized a need to give men the tools and resources they needed to secure their legacy in their sons. With so much misinformation in the world about how to raise our boys, it’s critical that we, as fathers, do the best job possible for the challenges they’re likely to face.

That’s why we started Legacy, a powerful 3 ½ day event for you and your son between the ages of 8 -15. During the course of this incredible experience, both you and your son will be tested physically, mentally, and emotionally. And you’ll both be equipped with the tools needed for your boy to transition to a self-sufficient man in a society that, frankly, doesn’t want him to. And, you’ll forge deeper bonds through a series of events and experiences unlike any other.

If you want to learn more about what this experience holds and lock in one of the 11 remaining spots for our June 11th – 14th experience, head to www.orderofman.com/legacy.

How to Crush Adversity | JASON REDMAN
01:36:32

Adversity is absolutely something all men deal with. So, what separates those who crumble in the face of it and those who rise up?

That’s exactly what my guest, former Navy SEAL Jason Redman, is here to talk with me about today. In today’s conversation, we cover his incredible journey from being badly wounded from an enemy bullet through the face and arm to an incredibly successful business owner and public speaker. We also cover how to discover your purpose, build up mental fortitude and resilience, compete with the most successful people on the planet, and, ultimately, how to crush adversity.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Developing mental scripts
  • Getting ambushed in life
  • The React Methodology
  • Enduring discomfort
  • Hitting rock bottom
  • Playing the victim
  • Living in denial
  • Reflecting on mistakes
  • Embracing hardships
  • A better version of your new self
  • Fighting for your life

JASON REDMAN

Gentlemen, I’m honored to introduce you to my guest today, former Navy SEAL and friend Jason Redman.

He spent 11 years as a Navy SEAL and was badly wounded on the battlefield in Iraq where he earned the Bronze Star Medal with Valor, Navy Commendation Medal, and Purple Heart among other medals and acknowledgments.

After retiring from the military in 2013 he went on to found a non-profit called Wounded Wear which provides tailored clothing for wounded warriors. And, in addition to that, he’s written several books about his experience in combat as a leader on the battlefield and is a New York Times Bestselling Author. Today, he is here to share his lessons from battle.

LEGACY

I’ve got to a point in my life (especially since I’m a father) that what will remain long after I’m gone has become important to me. And, I’m sure if you’re a father, you feel the same way.

And, as a father, the lessons and experiences you share with your son are critically important to you. That is why we started the Legacy Experience. It’s a 3 ½ day event in Maine designed to give you the tools, framework, and guide to usher your son into manhood.

In the face of society’s confusion about masculinity and manliness, it’s critical that we, as our son’s fathers, teach them the truth about the path from boy to man. Over the course of 3 days, you and your son will be tested physically, mentally, and emotionally and given the opportunity to forge deeper bonds between you and him.

We Don’t Rise to the Level of our Expectations, We Fall to the Level of our Training | JAMES YEAGER
01:07:02

Keeping yourself and others safe and secure is a huge part of what it means to be a man. It falls under the “Protection” trifecta of our role and responsibilities as men. That’s the reason having conversations like I do today with James Yeager is so crucial.

It seems to me too many men believe we’ll naturally rise to the situation when it is demanded from us. But without the proper training, we’re likely to find ourselves wanting and in dangerous situations and encounters. We’d all do well to remember that we don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Planning for the unexpected
  • A lack of motivation
  • Walking with purpose
  • Mastering the sword
  • Yin & Yang of man
  • Using guns to save
  • How to avoid being “picked”
  • Passing the smell test
  • Natural point-of-aim
  • Knowing what to look for
  • Gear vs. Skill
  • Dealing with intimidation
  • Systems & procedures

JAMES YEAGER

Gentlemen, I’m so honored to be able to introduce you to James Yeager. This is a fascinating man and someone who is uniquely and extremely competent and qualified to talk about keeping yourself and others safe and secure.


He is the CEO of Tactical Response, a tactical training company and his resume consists of two protective security details to Iraq, Chief of Police, K-9 handler, Deputy Sheriff, SWAT leader, Firearms instructor, and VP of a multi-million dollar tactical gear company.

I could go on and on but suffice it to say that there aren’t many, if any, more qualified individuals to talk with us about turning ourselves into the protectors our families and communities need us to be.

IRON COUNCIL

Over the past 5 years, I’ve really considered what it is a lot of men are missing and what I’ve seen in a lot of men is a lack of brotherhood. Most men seem to be going at life alone. We’ve all head the idea of the lone wolf and while I can understand that a man has to learn to make it on his own, having men who have my back, call me on my B.S., and support me has proven to be some of the most valuable relationships I’ve created.

But doing that can be difficult with a demanding schedule and a lack of men who want to grow and evolve the same way you do. And that is the exact reason we created the Iron Council. It’s a band of brothers (500+ of us) who have voluntarily decided that banding together is more powerful than going at it alone.

Each week, we host calls and discussions, check-in for accountability, challenge ourselves to push outside of our comfort zones, call each other out, support, edify, and uplift.

And, if you feel that might be of value to you in your life, we’d be honored to have you see if there is a fit for both us and you. Head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil to learn more and claim your seat in the brotherhood.

The Path from Navy SEAL to NASA Astronaut | MARIO ROMERO
01:18:15

If you’re anything like me, when you were a kid you had dreams of becoming an elite warrior or a NASA Astronaut – maybe both. My guest today is a man that took those dreams and is making them a reality.

His name is Mario Romero. He’s a former Navy SEAL, NASA Diver, and aspiring NASA Astronaut and he’s here today to talk about what that path looks like, his struggles along the way, failures and setbacks, his path to redemption, and how he’s a man who is currently living out every boy’s dreams.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Going Beyond Pluto
  • Every kid’s dream
  • The frontier of space
  • Spacewalking
  • Dark matter detection
  • Pursuing fulfillment
  • Interrogating nature
  • Discovering new information
  • Science in America

  • A downward spiral
  • Building relevancy
  • Studying astronomy
  • Predetermined destiny
  • Being courageous
  • Rewriting a new path in life
  • Getting into NASA
  • Returning to the moon

MARIO ROMERO

As I mentioned earlier, my guest today is Mario Romero. He spent over 8 years as a Navy SEAL and, upon leaving the Teams, he enrolled in college and achieved his Bachelor’s Degree in Pure Mathematics from Columbia University.

And, to add to that, over the past year he has been working with NASA as a NASA Diver preparing both the technology and astronauts for the demands and rigors of space travel.

He’s had a ton of ups and downs along his path and, despite his tremendous success in life, he’s one of the most humble individuals I’ve had the honor of sitting down with.

IRON COUNCIL

You’ve likely heard of the philosophy of Stoicism. You’ve probably even read Marcus Aurelius’ book, Meditations and/or Ryan Holiday’s The Obstacle is the Way, Ego is the Enemy, and Stillness is Key.

And, if you’re interested in incorporating the teachings of the ancient Stoics in your life, I want to invite you to join the Iron Council as that is what we’ll be talking about for the entire month of November.

We’ve got the tools and resources to help you take a concept/philosophy and actually implement it in your life for better results in your marriage and career. We don’t want to just talk about what it means to be a Stoic, we want to apply it for the betterment of ourselves and others. If you’re interested and want to learn more, head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Securing Our Nation’s Borders | JASON OWENS
01:11:36

A nation that has no borders ceases to be a nation. This is why it’s critical that we find realistic and effective solutions to secure this nation’s borders. And, while there are many polarizing thoughts on the subject, it’s also critical that we have discussions about this pressing issue.

That’s why, when I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days with Jason Owens, Chief Patrol Agent of the Houlton Sector (all of Maine), and his team, I jumped at the chance to learn more about what these men and women do and clear up misconceptions about their role and responsibilities. Today, we talk about those misconceptions, the threats our nation faces, how best to go about securing the resources to protect against those threats, and the brave men and women who do the work of securing our nation’s borders.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The common denominator
  • Becoming well-rounded
  • Different ways of doing business
  • Needing more resources
  • The border crisis
  • Protect your freedom
  • Presenting the facts
  • Relying on community
  • Crisis on the border
  • Finding a port of entry
  • Exploiting loopholes
  • The responsibility of public servants
  • Presenting objective facts
  • Subject Matter Expertise
  • Leaving a legacy behind

 

JASON OWENS

As I mentioned earlier, today I have the opportunity to sit down with the Chief Patrol Agent of the Houlton Sector (which is essentially all of Maine). He has over 20 years of experience under his belt and formerly served as Deputy Chief Patrol Agent of the Laredo Sector directing operation along the U.S/Mexico border.

He has completed both the Border Patrol Tactical Unit Selection Course and Border Patrol Search, Trauma, and Rescue Team Selection Course. He’s served in Texas, D.C., Honduras, Columbia, Iraq, and the Dominican Republic among other operations. I cannot imagine a more qualified man to talk about the unique and challenging work of protecting this nation’s borders.

MAINE EVENT


Several months ago, we hosted the first-ever Order of Man event in Maine, appropriately called, the Maine Event.

And, I’m glad to tell you that we have a few more spots for next year’s event (8 to be exact). It’s going to be held May 29th-31st 2020 and it is going to be an experience unlike any other.

It’s all designed to give you the tools, resources, brotherhood, accountability, and camaraderie that can only be found when men stand shoulder-to-shoulder in a common cause.

The Art of Coaching | BRETT BARTHOLOMEW
01:22:58

Every one of us wants to be a more effective leader but there is a huge difference between being a boss/manager and being a leader, and, if you take it even further, a coach. A coach is someone who helps guide another individual to do and be more.

Today, I am joined by a great coach, Brett Bartholomew, the author of Conscious Coaching, to talk about what makes a successful coach. We talk about the social skills needed to effectively coach others, the distinction between compliance and commitment, the nuances between influencing others and manipulating them, and ultimately how to coach others well.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Building a personal brand
  • Transactional people
  • Breeding complacency
  • Overcoming perfectionism
  • Managing risk
  • Dealing with anxiety
  • Tools for productivity
  • Getting ahold of your demons
  • Finding the right headspace
  • The outcome of influence
  • Navigating your own darkness
  • Leading with value
  • The three-stage framework

 

BRETT BARTHOLOMEW

As I stated earlier, I am joined by my friend and an absolutely phenomenal coach, Brett Bartholomew.

I only met Brett recently but I did watch him present some of the ideas that he’s going to share with you today at SummerStrong earlier in the year and I can tell you that without a doubt, Brett is extremely qualified and competent when it comes to human psychology and performance and how to optimize the body and brain for performance.

He is a strength and conditioning coach, consultant, and the founder of the consulting company, The Bridge Human Performance. He’s worked with professional athletes, Olympians, members of Special Forces, Fortune 500 Companies, and so many more. And, I’m honored he’s joining us to share his in-depth knowledge of coaching others well.

IRON COUNCIL

Obviously, we’re talking about leadership and coaching today on this podcast and, ironically enough, we do a deep dive into this exact subject inside our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, this month.

If you want to learn more about what it takes to lead and coach others effectively, consider joining us and tapping into the conversations, resources, tools, and accountability to help you become a more effective leader inside your business, your home, and community.

With over 500 members inside the Iron Council, you’re going to get a broad range of perspectives on topics ranging from leadership and self-development to time management skills and stoicism.

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.

IRON COUNCIL

Leadership is something all of us believe is important. You wouldn’t be listening to this podcast if you didn’t have the desire to be a more effective leader in your home, your business, and your community.

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Using the internet as a tool
  • Being moral and ethical 
  • The benefits of curiosity 
  • Being the protector
  • The 45-degree syndrome
  • Sunday Sentinel Sermon

  • Utilizing your primal instincts  
  • Leveraging body behavior 
  • Preparing your spouse to be a sentinel
  • Making incremental changes in life 

PAT MCNAMARA

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.

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.

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.

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.

01:28:33

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.

ORDER OF MAN MAINE EVENT

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.

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

It’s likely that someone in your life has 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).

And, 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 a lot of men in the Facebook Group and in 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 conversation 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, if you’re interested in claiming one of the few spots remaining, head to www.orderofman.com/maineevent.

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.

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.

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

  • The power in forgiveness
  • Accepting responsibility
  • Answering the question “why me?”

  • 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.

If you’re interested in hearing their stories and unlocking all the tools and resources we share, join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

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.

Survival, Bushcraft, and Emergency Preparedness | JOSH TYLER

Although the likelihood of us facing a life and death survival situation or natural disaster is lower than it has ever been, there is value in learning how to deal with these potentially devastating life events.

Today, I am joined by my friend, MMA fighter and survivalist Josh Tyler to talk about his latest experience in a 21-day survival challenge, the skill sets we’ll need to survive, some of the biggest threats to our safety and security, and how to survive emergencies, natural disasters, and dangerous encounters.

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.

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.

He and I met years ago and I’ve been following his work and implementing his programs in my life ever since and I’ve seen drastic improvements in my health, fitness, and nutrition.

He’s arguably one of the foremost authorities on how hormonal levels impact men and today he’s here to talk with us about exactly how that happens and how we can improve our T-levels naturally and safely.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, let me hit the pause button here and introduce you to a resource that has proven to be one of the greatest tools men have incorporated in their lives to improve their health, relationships, business, and bank accounts.

It’s called the Iron Council and it is a powerful tribe of 500 men all working together and holding each other accountable to audacious goals and powerful actions that have transformed their lives.

The truth is, you could go at life alone but those men who find other men to band with go further, slip less, and accomplish more than those who don’t. So, if you’re ready to be pushed, challenged, held accountable, and accomplish more in every facet of your life, join us inside the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil

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.

Today, I am joined by repeat guest, Tommy Baker, to talk about “the leap.” We discuss redefining risk, how to avoid overwhelm, strategies for giving yourself more clarity, eliminating noise, and tactics you can use for making the leap.

TOMMY BAKER

Gentlemen, I am honored to introduce you to my friend and repeat guest, Tommy Baker.

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. Seeing as how we're not all independently wealthy, there must be something else at play. And, it might surprise you to know that it's you that has the potential to become your own worst enemy.

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.

DR. DANIEL CROSBY

Today I am joined by repeat guest, Dr. Daniel Crosby.

He is a trained psychologist, behavioral finance expert, and asset manager. Specifically, he studies market psychology to understand the nature of why we do what we do and how it impacts our ability to invest successfully in financial markets.

He is a New York Times Bestselling Author and his ideas have made him a critical voice and expert in the financial community.

As a former financial advisor myself, I've been connected with Dr. Crosby for years and have applied many of his ideas and teachings into my previous financial practice.

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."

His name is Chad Prather and, today, we talk about our responsibility to speak up, calling boys into manhood, the rise of the victim culture, and the power of being politically incorrect.

His name is Chad Prather and you may know him as the political cowboy. But just in case you don't already know, Chad is a comedian and a political commentator willing to discuss (and have some fun with) some of the most polarizing topics in society today.

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.

Courage, Competence, Confidence | FRIDAY FIELD NOTES

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

  9. Redefine Failure
  10. Weigh the Cost
