praise effort and not results

Why Dads Should Praise Effort and Not Results

In episode 99 of The Good Dad Project, Larry Yatch from SEALed Mindset told us about the importance of instilling a growth mindset in our children. I think, like me, a lot of dads listening to that show experienced some major revelations about how we’ve been praising and encouraging our children. In this week’s Thursday Throwdown, I share my personal experience with my nine-year-old son and how I might have negatively impacted his attitude toward wrestling by praising him for the results instead of his effort.

show confidence with body language

7 Ways to Show and Feel More Confidence with Your Body Language

Did you know that 93% of our communication is through body language? Having the wrong body language will not only make you look less confident, it will make you feel less confident too. Here are 7 quick fixes to show and feel more confidence with your body language.

  1. Slow the pace of your walk and lengthen your stride.
  2. Raise your chest up slightly.
  3. Roll your shoulders back.
  4. Never look at the ground. Look up and around at your surroundings.
  5. Make eye contact with those you approach.
  6. Smile with your mouth and your eyes.
  7. Pay attention, be present, and connect to the person you’re speaking with.

fulfilling life

10 Minutes a Day to a More Fulfilling Life

Finding the time for self-care is one of the hugest struggles for dads. We always have another task to complete. We’re always being asked for another favor. We feel guilty for taking time away from our family and we leave ourselves last on the list. We can be overcome by exhaustion, frustration, and depression. This is why establishing a self-care routine is crucial. Listen to how as little as ten minutes a day can lead to a happier, more fulfilling life.

pursue your dreams

Undeniable Proof That It’s Never Too Late to Pursue Your Dreams

In this week’s Thursday Throwdown, I talk about why you must pursue your dreams and that it’s never too late to begin the journey.

If you listened to the last episode of The Good Dad Project, then you heard Diamond Dallas Page’s incredible story of beginning a wrestling career at an age when most athletes are retiring. It was DDP’s dream since childhood, and he took a chance that catapulted him to the career he always wanted.

At the age of 35, 45, or 55 many men think their opportunity has passed, but if you’ve ever felt the pull to do something with your life and refuse the call, you do a disservice not only to yourself, but to those close to you. If you’re unhappy, unfulfilled, and full of regret over not living to your full potential, it will affect the lives of your family.

Don’t retire with decades of unhappiness behind you and arrive at your death bed thinking “would’ve, should’ve, could’ve.” What might you accomplish? What could you do to push the gas pedal on your dreams today? Write a book. Start a blog. Start a company. Don’t know how? You don’t have to do it alone. Hire a writing coach. Get a business coach. Find a mentor or a mastermind group. Speed things up by cutting the learning curve. Seek those who’ve done this before you. Invest into your passion; step into the unknown.

It’s never too late, put a plan into action.

Like DDP who took a leap of faith. He decided to work hard and follow through with his dreams because life is too damn short.

What Your Daughter Needs From You as a Father

What Your Daughter Needs From You as a Father

I’d like to apologize for not having more guests on to talk about raising girls. Parenting daughters brings unique challenges for dads, and in the future The Good Dad Project will feature more guests sharing a man’s point of view on raising daughters.

In this week’s Thursday Throwdown, I talk about what your daughter needs from you as a father to empower her to speak freely, develop confidence, and set her expectations high when it comes to the men in her adult future.
