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
  • How we’re reacting
  • 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.

If you want to learn more and band with us, head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil to learn more and lock in your spot at the table.

Establishing the Mindsets for Victory | JASON GARDNER
01:07:15

In the midst of all the variables and uncertainties, it can be a real challenge to create victories for yourself on the home, business, or personal front. Fortunately, you have control over the one variable that makes the biggest difference – your mindset.

My guest today is retired Navy SEAL Command Master Chief, Jason Gardner. We talk about the laws of combat, transitioning from successful warrior to successful homesteader, overcoming social anxiety and PTSD, and ultimately how to embrace and execute the mindsets for victory.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Organic farming
  • Homesteading
  • Business agility
  • Transitioning from SEALS
  • Finding your mission
  • Striking-up conversation
  • Fight or flight response
  • PTSD
  • A paradigm shift
  • Coping with stress
  • Combat deployment
  • The Laws of Combat
  • Mindsets for victory
  • The disease of victory

JASON GARDNER

What a powerful conversation I have to share with you today with an absolutely incredible man. His name is Jason Gardner and he is a retired Navy SEAL Command Master Chief with over 30 years of military service under his belt with 9 deployments across the globe.

He’s served at every level of leadership from SEAL sniper to lead instructor for Naval Special Warfare Group One Training Detachment to SEAL Team Five Command Master Chief. He is also the recipient of the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and a purple heart.

He now serves as a leadership instructor, speaker, and strategic advisor at Echelon Front. Not only is he a badass on the battlefield but every other facet of life as well.

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. 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.

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.

Tapping Into Your Warrior Archetype | CHRIS ALBERT
01:09:38

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.

  • Learning online business
  • Teaching people how to be free

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.

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.

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
  • Growing up in poverty
  • Leaving the SEAL teams
  • 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.

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

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.

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.

And, because this topic is so important, we in the Iron Council, have decided to dedicate the entire month of October to breaking down what it means to be a leader, what tools and skillsets every leader needs to develop, how to lead more efficiently and effectively, and how to win with a team.

If you’re interested in this topic and want the framework to actually implement what you learn in order to succeed, join us inside the Iron Council. When you do, you’ll get access to the tools, resources, and accountability you need to thrive as the leader of your family, business, and 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 
  • Do your 5’s and 25’s 
  • 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.

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

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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

ZACH EVEN-ESH

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

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

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

IRON COUNCIL

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

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

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

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

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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

DAVID MELTZER

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

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

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

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

IRON COUNCIL

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

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

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

Service Above Self | MAT BEST
01:09:31

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS 

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

 

MAT BEST

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

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

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

ORIGIN

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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

BERT SORIN

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

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

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

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

MAINE EVENT

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

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

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

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

Defeating the Odds | NICK SANTONASTASSO
01:06:56

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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

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.

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.

Creating a Generational Business | ADAM WEATHERBY
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.

Today, I’m joined by the President and CEO of Weatherby (American Firearms Manufacturer), Adam Weatherby. He is the grandson of the founder, Roy Weatherby. And, he recently took up the mantle as head of this 70-year-old, third-generation business. Today, we talk about what it took to create, how things evolve over generations, the power of storytelling, and how to create a generational business and legacy. 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Leveraging everything 
  • A woman’s perspective 
  • Manufacturing arms 
  • Creating a prestigious brand 
  • The value of marketing

ADAM WEATHERBY

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

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

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

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

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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

ANDY STUMPF

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

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

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

MAINE EVENT

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

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

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

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

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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

ANDREW O’BRIEN

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

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

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

MAINE EVENT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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

BRADY “TOTANKA” CERVANTES

My guest today is Brady “Totanka” Cervantes.

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

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

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

IRON COUNCIL

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

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

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

  • Decades of opportunity
  • Taking risks
  • Living without stuff
  • Making a sacrifice

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Returning from deployment
  • Managing expectations as a leader
  • The importance of a father figure

ANTHONY WAITE

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

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

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

IRON COUNCIL

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

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

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

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

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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

HANS MOLENKAMP

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

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

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

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

IRON COUNCIL

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

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

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

If you’re ready to be part of a team, a band of brothers if you will, who are doing big things in their lives and want to help you do the same, join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil

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.

01:23:52

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.

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

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

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

Take notes today and enjoy my conversation with Josh Tyler

IRON COUNCIL

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

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

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

Transform Your Life | REMI ADELEKE
01:22:30

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

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

Show Highlights

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

REMI ADELEKE

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

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

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

IRON COUNCIL

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

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

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

Master Your Testosterone Levels | CHRISTOPHER WALKER
01:16:09

We all know that testosterone is one of the key hormones that drives much of our masculine behavior. What you may not know is that testosterone levels are trending downward for men of all ages. While those who see lower testosterone levels in themselves are racing towards testosterone replacement therapy, there are many natural ways to address T levels.

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

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.

  • 3 traits all investment strategies must posses
  • How a contrarian mindset could improve your investment portfolio

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.

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."

CHAD PRATHER

My guest today is a man that won't need an introduction for a lot of you.

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.

But that doesn't mean it doesn't pose a very serious threat to our sanity and well-being.

Today, I talk with repeat guest, Cal Newport, to talk about some of those threats and, more importantly, how we harness the power of digital technology while minimizing the risk that inherently comes with it.

Gentlemen, today I have the honor of introducing you to my friend and repeat guest, Mr. Cal Newport.

I know many of you have read his books, including, So Good They Can't Ignore you, Deep Work, and his latest New York Times Bestseller, Digital Minimalism.

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
32:19

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

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

How to be Funny and Why You Should Care | KEITH YACKEY

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

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

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

Become the Hunter | DONNIE VINCENT
01:19:09

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

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

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


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why we should pursue our passions
  • How to become a good steward over our resources
  • The problems with factory farming
  • Why we have not evolved out of hunting
  • Why we need to give back to nature
  • The relationship between the hunter and the hunted
  • The seriousness and gravity of the role of a hunter
  • How ignorance around hunting is hurting all of us
  • How to rectify the odds between hunting and conservation
  • The symbiotic relationship between everything
  • Why we owe it to the animal to become the best hunter possible

  • The power of asking serious questions about food sustainability

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

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

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

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

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

DAVID GOGGINS | Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds

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

We talk about starring down adversity, using challenges as the fuel to propel yourself forward, the sacrifices you'll need to make to be successful, race issues and political correctness in America, and how you can master your mind and defy the odds.

DAVID GOGGINS

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

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

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

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

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

You may not have been blessed with strength, smarts, good looks, wealth, or connections. But none of that matters. What matters is that you have 100% control over your level of discipline. And, discipline is the great equalizer.

The Terminal List | JACK CARR
01:19:22

Gentlemen, I've got a bit of a different one lined up for you today as I have a conversation with the very first fictional author we've had on the podcast. His name is Jack Carr and he is the author of The Terminal List (which is an incredible book) and his upcoming book, True Believer.

Jack is a former Navy SEAL turned fictional writer and today we discuss his transition from the military, the inspiration for his series of books, an inside look at the writing process, the amount of research goes into creating this type of work, and a whole lot more.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Transitioning out of the military
  • Why Jack left the SEALs
  • Finding inspiration for writing
  • An inside look at the writing process
  • The level of research that goes into writing and how to do it
  • How to network with those in the industry you're trying to break into
  • Why Jack always wanted to be a writer
  • How to effectively and profitably pursue a passion


JACK CARR

Guys, it's my pleasure to introduce you to a friend of mine, Jack Carr. You know how there are just certain people that you know when you meet them are going to be great friends?

That's how I felt when Jack opened up his home to me and we had an incredibly powerful conversation (which you'll hear part of).

He is a former task unit commander in the Navy SEALS with over 20 years of experience leading assault and sniper teams in Iraq and Afghanistan (that's part of the reason his book is so realistic). As I mentioned before, he left the SEALs and has since gone on to fulfill a second childhood dream, becoming an author.

Archery 101 | JOHN DUDLEY
01:18:38

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

That said, I've gotten so many requests and questions about archery that I thought it only made sense to bring the best person on I could think of to talk about it. His name is John Dudley and he is the founder of Nock On Archery. Today, we talk about what makes a natural archer, understanding the importance of eye dominance, why coaching is so critical, and the pros and cons of new technology.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

Introduction to the School of Nock
The pros and cons of social media
Why humility in coaching is critical
What Dudley means by "archery entertainment"
Why every archer needs to learn to be more present
How social media has opened up archery coaching
Why Dudley has always wanted to coach, and why his team didn't always want him to
What makes a natural archer
Why every archer needs to work on physical fitness
The importance of eye dominance in archery
When technology takes away from the sport of archery
How to create meaning and legacy through coaching
How John's restraint is his strength


JOHN DUDLEY

My guest today is a repeat guest and someone who I know a lot of you are already familiar with.

His name is John Dudley and he is the founder of Nock On Archery where he coaches archers and makes some of the best products on the market. He's coached guys like Joe Rogan, Andy Stumpf, Jocko Willink, and so many more, including me.

Yes, this is a conversation centered around archery but I want you to listen closely because John and I go so much deeper than what type of bow you should buy and what your stance should look like. This is truly a podcast about not only becoming a better archer/bow hunter but a better man.

This is a fascinating discussion with someone who is well qualified to address the sexual issues a lot of men deal with.

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

Man Up | BEDROS KEUILIAN
59:33

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

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

Turning Tragedy into Triumph | SIDNEY SMITH
42:15

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

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

SIDNEY SMITH

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

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

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

Living Life on Your Terms | JP Dinnell
01:05:16

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

JP DINNELL


Guys, as you know, we've had just about the entire Echelon Front team on over the past month or so and I couldn't be more excited to introduce you to one of their lead instructors and my friend, JP Dinnell.

He spent nearly a decade with the SEAL teams and served in three combat deployments, his most recent with Task Unit Bruiser in Ramadi under the command of Jocko Willink. There he served as point man, machine gunner and lead sniper for Delta Platoon opposite of Chris Kyle.

Upon return from Iraq, helped rebuild and enhance the SEAL training programs into the highly effective programs they are today. Since then, he has become a lead instructor with Echelon Front helping leaders and communities enhance their organizations and companies.

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

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

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


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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


EVAN HAFER


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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


JACK DONOVAN

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We live in a culture of ultimate softness but there seems to be a resurgence of men who understand the value of being tough, resilient, and gritty. These are the men I aspire to be more like because I understand how crucial it is, as Theodore Roosevelt states, to "keep the barbarian virtues."

JORDAN HARBERTSON


Men, I am honored to introduce you to my friend, Jordan Harbertson.

He and I met years ago as we both launched our businesses around the same time. I've been inspired watching him market his business and create something truly special for himself, his business partners, his community, and his family. I've watched him and his partners take MTN OPS from a simple idea to a powerhouse in the very crowded marketplace of supplemental nutrition.

Jordan is one of the most real people I know. He takes about his struggles personally and professionally including his transformation with his fitness over the past several months and what it takes to succeed in business and life.

FFN 118: What is Masculinity?
21:23

There's a lot of talk about "evolving the definition" of masculinity. What a shame since masculinity has driven much of the positive growth we enjoy in society today. Couple the desire to change what masculinity is with the confusion about what it is in the first place and it's easy to understand why there's so much misinformation about what masculinity is and, ultimately, what it means to be a man.

We talk about his positive upbringing, how he used fighting as an outlet, the disease of addiction, his downward spiral, and how he has overcome his drug addiction.

Court spent a lot of his life hooked on just about every drug imaginable and once overdosed on heroin where he was estimated to have spent 8 minutes without a heartbeat or pulse.

There is no doubt that Court McGee is a man who knows how to fight but I am absolutely blown away with the story of his greatest battle in overcoming addiction, walking the path of long-term sobriety, how he handles adversity, and how he's taken his greatest challenge and turned himself into a force for good.

173: The Man Diet | Chad Howse
45:15

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here are 7 ways to do just that...

46:41

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

Today, I am joined by retired Green Beret Lieutenant Colonel, Scott Mann to talk about how to be a strong leader.

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

Becoming a Minimalist | Joshua Becker
46:41

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

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


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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


JOSHUA BECKER

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

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

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

FFN 112: The Systematic Softening of Society
26:59

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

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

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

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

The Disciplined Pursuit of Less | Greg McKeown
53:01

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

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


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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


GREG MCKEOWN

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

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

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

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

FFN 111: How to Command Respect
23:20

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

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

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

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

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

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

Forging Mental Toughness | Ryan Lange
43:22

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

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


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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


RYAN LANGE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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


CHARLIE JABALEY


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

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

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

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

FFN 109: How We Stop School Shootings
21:42

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

JAKE THOMPSON

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

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

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

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

FFN 108: Bridging the Integrity Gap
18:55

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

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


DR. LEONARD SAX

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

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

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

FFN 107: Crafting the Perfect Morning Routine
18:50

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

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

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