Social Media Envy

How to Neutralize Your Social Media Envy

Most of us look at our social media feeds multiple times a day. We see other guys’ snapshots of what looks like a perfect life. Sometimes we feel jealous, or we get down on ourselves for not accomplishing as much. In this episode of Thursday Throwdown, I talk about how to neutralize your social media envy.

We all feel envy from time to time, especially when it comes to social media. It looks like some guys have a blissful, successful life, but this is an illusion. All of us have challenges and hardships. Life gets messy for everyone. The images we see on social media are only the highlight reels. You can’t judge your real life against the cherry-picked moments of others’ lives. Remind yourself:

  • Don’t compare yourself to other people.
  • Realize you’re only seeing a glimpse into a person’s life.

dads to read to their kids

Finally, a Book Especially for Dads to Read to Their Kids

In this episode, I talk about how my son inspired me to write a a book especially for dads to read to their kids.

As men and dads, most of us are task-oriented and find it hard to put our emotions into words. We feel odd communicating and we don’t know if it will resonate with our kids. Many of us work and are gone for the majority of the day. How do we let our kids know how we feel about them and how we are there for them no matter what? Books are a great way to start the conversation, but the majority of books out there are from a mom’s perspective. That is why I wrote Daddy Will Always Love and Protect You.

Daddy Will Always Love and Protect You

Available on Amazon in Kindle and Paperback

Daddy Will Always Love and Protect You illustrates a father’s love for his kids. There are so many books on the market that illustrates the relationships between moms and kids, but very few for dads. Being a dad is one of the toughest yet rewarding jobs in the world. Most of our kids don’t clearly understand how much we love them, how much we think about them when we are not around, and how important they are to us. This book is a short, funny, and powerful read for both dads and kids.

4 Pillars of Effective Leadership

4 Pillars of Effective Leadership

On today’s Thursday Throwdown, I recap the 4 pillars of effective leadership that we discussed in the Dad Edge Alliance membership community call last week.

Good leadership skills are not only essential in work and business, but also in our roles as fathers and husbands.

4 Pillars of Effective Leadership

1. Honesty

Honesty earns respect and trust. Be direct and straightforward, but in a tactful way.

2. Delegation

A true leader will step in and take ownership when things go bad, and he will push people into the spotlight when things go well.

3. Adapting to Change

Standing still means falling behind. If we’re not challenging ourselves, we’re standing still and the world will pass us by.

4. Strategic Thinking

A leader must always think about what’s going to happen next. Be proactive instead of reactive.

Prevent Angry Outbursts

5 Ways to Prevent Angry Outbursts

This episode marks 1 year of Thursday Throwdown on the Good Dad Project! Following up on our previous episode with Peter Sacco about Uncovering the Secrets of Anger, we’re going to go over five quick ways we can prevent angry outbursts.

Some of us have issues managing our anger. This is because most men hold things in for way too long. Then we explode when we’ve suddenly hit our limit. We feel shame, regret, and frustration over not being able to control ourselves. But we must remember that anger is a normal emotion and we can put preventative measures in place to prevent angry outbursts.

1. Breathe

We must respond instead of react. If take a moment to breathe first, we can calm ourselves and think before overreacting.

2. Walk away

Sometimes our kids need a time out. Sometimes, WE need a time out. We should find a quiet place and wait for the anger to pass. Then we can approach the conflict rationally.

3. Stay active

Exercise helps us handle stress better. Endorphins give us a sense of well-being. If we blow off some steam during workouts, we will be in a better frame of mind to handle difficult situations at home and work.

4. Surround yourself with right tribe

We are the average of the 5 people we hang out with the most. We must find friends and mentors who help us to be the best version of who we are – like the DAD EDGE ALLIANCE.

5. Apologize

When we apologize to our kids, we show them a tremendous lesson in humility. Just because we are dads doesn’t mean we’re always right. This is a great opportunity to show them that we can put our egos aside and admit when we’re wrong.

Prevailing Through the Crucibles of Life

Prevailing Through the Crucibles of Life

We all go through times in our lives when the carpet is pulled from under us. Through no fault of our own, our lives spin out of control. We go through a hell that seems unending. We feel all that’s important to us slipping through our fingers. Today we talk about prevailing over the crucibles of life.

I just went through thirty-three days of horrendous insomnia. I only could get ninety minutes to three hours of sleep a night. I went to the ER twice and was hospitalized for four days. I tried all the meds, and nothing would put me down for more than three hours. I went to bed every night in fear, knowing I wouldn’t be able to sleep. I lost fifteen pounds. My blood pressure and blood sugar went up. As my health deteriorated, I worried about my business, the GDP podcast, and my family. For the first time in my life, I experienced anxiety and depression. I felt like I had no control as a I watched everything that was important to me slipping away.

In this episode I tell you how I got through this crucible in my life and how you can too.
