How to Always Make the Right Decision

How to Always Make the Right Decision with Darius Mirshahzadeh


How do we make the right decision when it comes to where we want to devote our time, energy, and resources? What should we strive for? What should we sacrifice? As fathers, we are pulled in a hundred different directions. Our capacity is limited. It’s easy to feel unsure which way to go.

Today’s guest has developed a system to help you design a life that brings you joy and satisfaction. Darius Mirshahzadeh is the host of Greatness Machine LIVE and the author of The Core Value Equation.

He teaches us not only how to define our core values, but how to turn them into the language of our lives and use them as an anchor for all decision making.

You’ve never heard an approach to values like this before! Learn how to always make the right decision for yourself, your work, and most importantly, your family.

“How you are anywhere is how you are everywhere.”

Darius Mirshahzadeh

Darius Mirshahzadeh is a high growth CEO, serial entrepreneur, and culture-building mad scientist who was ranked #9 on Glassdoor’s list of Top CEOs of Small and Medium Companies in the US. He’s led organizations that have won numerous Stevie awards, been named “#3 Best Place to Work” by San Francisco Business Times, and have landed at #40 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies. Darius has been recognized in the New York Times and Inc. Magazine for innovation in corporate culture, and his business insights and thought leadership have been published in Huffington Post, Entrepreneur.com, Fast Company, and Forbes.

The Core Value Equation:

A Framework to Drive Results, Create Limitless Scale and Win the War for Talent

If you’re a CEO, three of the biggest pain points you face in today’s business world are:

  • Making the best decisions when the answer isn’t always clear
  • Maintaining a strong and consistent culture as your business rapidly grows
  • Attracting and retaining the best talent who are a strong culture fit

These problem areas lead to inconsistency, growing pains, and major roadblocks on how to take your organization to the next level. Thankfully, there’s a simple solution:

Discover, build, and create your core value driven organization.

In The Core Value Equation, Darius Mirshahzadeh shows how core values create the ultimate decision-making engine for your organization that consistently produces spectacular results. Core values also create an “invisible manager” that sits next to every employee and holds them accountable to a common set of beliefs, actions, and outcomes, all without hiring a single person. Finally, core values are the best tool out there to recruit and support an army of diehard team members who speak the same language, create consistent results, and make your organization a magnet for like-minded individuals.

What You’ll Learn

  • Darius is half Italian, half Persian and grew up in Southern California.
  • He had a heart-centered mother and an angry, bitter father
  • Although his father took his rage out on his family, it was from him who Darius learned his ambition.
  • Darius is working on his core values for his family because of his dad, who took his family for granted and died young from the stress of his anger.
  • Trauma, rage, and pain is stored in your body, your organs.
  • Darius responds by fight, flight, rage instead of fight, flight, freeze.
  • Why you are being a bastard to yourself
  • The epidemic of chronic dissatisfaction
  • Being a beast at work at the cost of your family life
  • Core values as anchor of decision-making
  • Discovery and design of core values
  • How your core values turn into the language of your life
  • How this language keeps you accountable
  • The mindset of a conscious leader
  • You spend more time with your employer than your family. Make sure you and your employer share the same values.
  • An example of Darius’s list of family core values
  • Why design matters when it comes to living your values
  • How to prevent your kids or spouse from weaponizing your values
  • How to translate flat words into meaning for your family
  • Attaching senses, symbols, and ideas to your values
  • Establishing a hierarchy of values

Real AF Self-Discipline with Andy Frisella


Today we are beyond excited to have Andy Frisella on The Dad Edge! This interview is the favorite above all other episodes.

If you don’t already know, Andy Frisella hosted the #1 business and success podcast in the world, The MFCEO project, and is the creator of 1st Phorm supplements. Andy is also the host of the Real AF Podcast and the founder of the #75Hard mental and physical fitness challenge.

With a big voice, big personality, and big heart, Andy Frisella, gets real AF about his struggles. He reveals that he naturally is a weak and lazy person, and that only by learning the skill of self-discipline has he developed his unstoppable work ethic and hustle.

He talks about why health must be our priority and how the #75Hard challenge develops the self-discipline we need to accomplish everything we want to do in life.

He also tells us how to practice extreme time management, how to develop true self-confidence, and what legacy really means.

Andy shares stuff in this show that you haven’t heard on any other podcast. Get ready to get real AF about life!

“If you can master the art of feeling stressed but still getting your shit done, you start to become real dangerous.”—Andy Frisella

“Stand up for what is right, no matter what it costs you.”—Andy Frisella

What You’ll Learn

  • As men, the first thing we shelve is our health. We think we have to throw ourselves on the sword for our families.
  • Everything in life is built from health and discipline.
  • Controlling your hunger for food is a good tool to build discipline.
  • If you can’t control what you put in your mouth, you’re not likely to control anything else.

family leadership

The Process of Family Leadership—Dad Edge Alliance Exclusive Q&A with Errol Doebler

We are all going to go some day. What kind of culture do you want to leave behind for your family and the generations to come?

We have an intense experience for you today. Errol Doebler, former Navy SEAL and FBI Special Agent, is back on the show. He is a husband, a father of three, and the author of The Process, Art and Science of Leadership.

Errol participated in a live event with the Dad Edge Alliance, where more than 70 men had the opportunity to listen to his arsenal of family leadership training and got a chance to ask him questions on how to use the process of leadership to become strong leaders for their families.

Errol explains how the leadership strategies used for battle are the same we need to use in the boardroom and the home. In this behind-the-scenes peek into the Dad Edge Alliance, you will learn how to gain trust, earn respect, and form an unbreakable family team.

 

What You’ll Learn

  • Great teams (and families) are not made by who is on them, but how they operate.
  • It’s up to the leader (the father) to create a space where everyone feels like they can speak up.
  • Communication is the main part of the planning process. You need the team’s contributions.
  • We can unwittingly create silence. We have to break that down and develop an environment of psychological safety.
  • Each member gets equal input. Do not let a few dominate.
  • Teammates must be in tune with each other’s emotions and needs to be successful.
  • Before enforcing accountability, make it clear what kids have to be accountable for.
  • Autonomy—we want kids to take initiative. We establish what we want them to do and why we want them to do it. Then we let them tell us how.
  • What to do when you’ve blown up at your kids
  • Why we must apply the same mindset to times of calm as to times of chaos
  • How to regain trust and respect from your wife and/or family when you’ve lost it
  • How to reestablish leadership when you’ve given it up
  • How to execute even when you’re feeling fear
  • How to define and enforce codes of behavior

SAVAGE GENTLEMAN

The Savage Gentleman with MMA Fighter Josh Tyler


Life can often feel like a cage fight. Punches fly at us from every angle. We’re swept off of our feet and tackled to the ground. Sometimes we’re straight up knocked out. And if we aren’t prepared to battle, we might never get back up.

Today’s guest is MMA fighter Josh Tyler. He is also the co-founder of Savage Gentleman, a retail brand and ethos that believes that men are both savages and gentlemen.

Josh is here to reveal his secret to remaining calm in the chaos of the cage. He tells us how to employ emotional intelligence, communication, and self-awareness in a masculine way. Josh also talks about how he’s applied what he’s learned as an MMA fighter to family life.

“The world is full of savages and gentlemen. Rare is it to find a man who can be both.”

Josh Tyler and the Savage Gentleman

“The world is full of savages and gentlemen. Rare is it to find the man who can be both. It is not ideal void of all traits of masculinity, nor is it suitable to succumb to one’s every base desire. There must be a balance struck between the two sides of the same coin that is manhood. This is the plight of the savage gentlemen, to cultivate both aspects of his being and achieve his full potential.”

What You’ll Learn

  • Growing up, Josh was not athletic. He wanted to become a scientist.
  • How Josh managed to remain internally calm during the external chaos of the ring
  • How to perform a stress evaluation
  • Your body doesn’t recognize the difference between stresses.
  • You can take the stress tolerance from the situations you’re used to and apply it to other areas.
  • Use times of success in the past as reference points.
  • Seek new experiences to push your limits further.
  • How marriage is like a cage fight
  • How to balance the savage gentleman
  • Learning how to operate in tandem with another human being (like in marriage) can help in business and other relationships.
  • Men are woefully ill-equipped to enter into a partnership with someone of the opposite sex.
  • Just like in the world of fighting, how can you win in marriage when you don’t know the rules or spent enough time training? You have no context to realize what you’re good at and where you need work.
  • Knowing where your weak spots are allows you to solve those problems.
  • Ignoring your feelings prevents you from finding the root cause.
  • You have to take responsibility to learn how to communicate better.
  • You do feel stuff, whether you admit it or not, and you will receive what you put out.
  • The secret is to understand where your anger is coming from.
  • Most people go through life with very little thought and reflection on the what and why.
  • Self-awareness and personal development are not for wusses.
  • Pay attention and notice the cues of where you need to focus your awareness.
  • There are appropriate times to be vulnerable.
  • In marriage, if you don’t let someone in to know you on a deep level, you end up growing apart and not knowing who each other are anymore.
  • Bitterness and resentment change your perception of someone.
  • Sometimes the best thing in marriage is to have the fight.
  • Avoiding confrontation and letting stuff go for too long destroys the chance of ever getting back on track.
  • Develop a Standard Operating Procedure for how to handle tough arguments with your spouse.
  • People are getting worse at interfacing with each other in meaningful ways because of technology and distraction.
  • But first, we need to learn how to interface with ourselves better.

Leave Behind for Your Kids

The Ultimate Gift to Leave Behind for Your Kids


If you were to leave the world right now, what would you want your kids to know? What would you tell them about the way you feel? What advice would you give to take them through the rest of their lives? Today we talk about the ultimate gift to leave behind for your kids.

Blake Brewer lost his dad in a tragic accident when he was nineteen. Their relationship was cut short, but during the heartbreak and grief, Blake’s mom handed him a letter that his father had written to him. This legacy letter not only helped Blake cope with the loss, it also made it possible for him to take his father’s words with him throughout the rest of his adult life.

In honor of his father and the powerful gift he left behind, Blake Brewer is on a mission to help 1 million dads write at least one meaningful, heartfelt letter to their children with the Legacy Letter Challenge.

Blake knows that writing a legacy letter is a huge undertaking. What do you say? How do you say it? He talks about how to compose a legacy letter and how its effects will ripple through generations to come.

 

What You’ll Learn

  • Blake’s dad was Terry Bradshaw’s tight end.
  • His father struggled to connect with kids when he got older.
  • After Blake’s freshman year in college, they planned a pinnacle family trip to Hawaii.
  • Blake and his dad went to the beach to go swimming, just the two of them.
  • As they went further out into the ocean, the waves got bigger.
  • His dad tried to get out. He yelled for help. Blake eventually got to him, and with the help of another swimmer, pulled his dad to shore.
  • Blake pulled his unconscious dad from the water.
  • His father was pronounced dead at the hospital.
  • What started off as one of the best days of his life became the worst nightmare.
  • While still in shock about his father’s death, Blake’s mother told him that his dad had been working on a letter to him, even though he had no idea he would die.
  • The letter helped Blake through his grief. He didn’t run from his pain. Instead he grew more in his faith, which would’ve never happened without the legacy letter his dad wrote.
  • No one is promised to live till old age, and many dads struggle to connect with their kids.
  • Blake helps dads put words to what is in their hearts and minds.
  • In a world with so many distractions, we can’t let the world be the main influence on our children.
  • A legacy letter is a lasting gift that can be reread whenever your children need it.
  • How the process of writing the letter helps dads articulate their feelings into a mission statement
  • Why Blake is determined to help a million dads write a legacy letter
