Why Finding Your Life’s Purpose Won’t Get You Very Far

Everyone on the internet seems to be talking about finding your life’s purpose, or finding your why. Your why is supposed to be your moral compass. It keeps you motivated and on track, but today we’re going to totally deconstruct that idea.

I have a clip from a guest speaker we had in our Dad Edge Alliance, Thom Shea. He’s a retired navy SEAL instructor and author of the book Unbreakable: A Navy SEAL’s Way of Life. Tom gives us examples of why finding your life’s purpose won’t get you very far and what you need to work on instead.

Stop and really listen to this one. Replay it. Share it, because it’s a game-changer!

How to Get Your Kid to Listen Without Yelling

I’m going to talk about an issue most dads face on a daily basis–losing our temper. What do you do when you tell your son or daughter to do something over and over again and they just won’t listen? Usually we get frustrated and angry. We begin to raise our voice, but this doesn’t give us the respect we want. Today I’m going to share a secret I learned from a mentor on how to get your kid to listen without yelling.

Why You Need Mentors in Every Stage of Life

Why You Need Mentors in Every Stage of Life

As children, we have mentors for every aspect of our lives. Our parents mentored us from the moment we were born. Our teachers served as mentors for each of the subjects we studied. Our coaches were our mentors when we played school sports. But as adults we are left on our own. We think we know all we need to know. We stop learning and stop growing. Today’s episode is a clip from a live Q & A session we had in The Dad Edge Alliance with baseball legend Todd Stottlemyre. He drops a wisdom bomb why we need to continuously seek new knowledge and feedback, and why we need mentors in every stage of life.

 

Listen up guys! Our free Dad Edge Facebook group grows by hundreds of guys a week, but if you want to step up game even more, check out our Dad Edge Alliance membership group where we have weekly talks, community calls, and a elite guest speakers like Todd Stottlemyre every month!

Why Nice Guys Don't Get Their Needs Met

Why Nice Guys Don’t Get Their Needs Met

Dr. Robert Glover, author of No More Mr. Nice Guy, dropped some knowledge bombs on us in our last episode. He also did a live Q & A with our Dad Edge Alliance membership group. Today you will hear a clip of highlights from the call itself as Dr. Robert Glover expands on why nice guys don’t get their needs met.

Note: Our free Dad Edge Facebook group grows by 200 guys a week, but if you want to step up game even more, check out our Dad Edge Alliance membership group where we have weekly talks, community calls, and a elite guest speakers like Dr. Robert Glover every month.

Mr. Nice Guy’s 3 Covert Contracts

  1. If I’m a good guy, I will be liked and loved (and women will desire me).
  2. If I meet other people’s needs without them having to ask, they will meet my needs without me having to ask.
  3. If I do everything right, I’ll have a smooth problem free life.

The number one way to stop the effects of Nice Guy Syndrome is to assume the responsibility of taking better care of ourselves and making sure our own needs are met.

Each of us is like a big cup that only holds so much. Nice guys take care of everyone else and hope that others will fill them back up. We can’t figure out why we do everything right and yet fail in our work, love, and sex life. We become more desperate to please and seek validation from others. Women turn a cold shoulder to us, not because they are rejecting sex. They are rejecting the neediness.

When we take care of ourselves, we become more generous and  more judicious givers. Healthy giving is not giving to get, it’s a measured response.
