Finding the Strength Through the Struggle

Today we talk to a man who never wanted to be a dad. The thought of fatherhood terrified him. He thought so little of himself, he didn’t think he was worthy to procreate. He thought that when his time was done on Earth, there should be no evidence that he even existed.

This man’s name is Mark Globowsky, and he is the host of the Strength Through the Struggle podcast. His beliefs of unworthiness and inferiority were the result of his upbringing with a physically and emotionally abusive father. But Mark stepped boldly into the dark, confronting his issues head on. He surrounded himself with the right people, men who showed him the truth about himself.

Now Mark has someone to call him ‘daddy’ for the rest of his life. Becoming a father was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to him. He shares how we can mine our pain and our past, finding strength through the struggle to become the man that we decide we want to be.

How to Stop Grinding and Start Living

How to Stop Grinding and Start Living


Do you know who you are? Do you know what it is you’re really chasing? How will you feel about your life on your deathbed?

Many of us are not living life to the fullest. We’re stuck in the daily grind, just trying to keep our heads above water. Society tells us what we should and should not be. Inside we know that our dreams are passing us by and we suffer in silence, sometimes turning to vices.

Today we talk to longtime Dad Edge Alliance member Ryan Greenwood. He talks about how he has transformed his life with the help of accountability and tough love from his tribe. He has advice for men struggling alone so they can stop grinding and start living.

The Dangers of Perfection

The Dangers of Perfection


Do you go at life alone? If you’re like 99% of the men out there, you probably are. Most men bear the weight of the world on their shoulders and tell everyone who asks that they’re “good” and “fine”. They don’t want to ask for advice or help because their afraid of looking weak.

But the dangers of perfection are real and the stress that accumulates from internalizing our fears and worries seeps into everything we do as men, husbands, and fathers.

Thursday Throwdown is our short show with everyday, relatable dads. Today we have Dad Edge Alliance member Brian Auten on to share his experience.

Being raised in a church, Brian was taught that he was supposed to be a good boy, the nice guy who took everything with a smile. It was important to not have any issues and to maintain the appearance of perfection, but the truth was that he was living a lie. Brian did get angry about things. He did have stress and worries. He realized that he didn’t have the perfect marriage, and he wasn’t the perfect dad either.

He decided that enough was enough. Holding in negative emotions put him in a bad mood with his wife and kids. Pretending everything was okay made his life stagnant. He needed help, and he needed to be proactive about getting it.

'It’s like priming the pump. If you give a little, you realize there’s a lot more inside you to give.'—Brian Auten, The Dad Edge Alliance #mastermind #men #manhood #brotherhood Click To Tweet

Reasons Why Men Don’t Ask for Help

7 Reasons Why Men Don’t Ask for Help


Why is it that men tend to shut down and hide instead of asking for help? As the founder of The Dad Edge Alliance, I have talked to thousands of men, and I can tell you we all struggle with the same issues. We suffer physical, mental, and emotional problems. We deal with affairs, addiction, fear, anger, identity crises, and major life changes. We are not alone in life’s challenges. So why do we insist on pretending we’ve got it all under control? Today I’m going to share 7 reasons why men don’t ask for help, and I will tell you right now they are all lies.

We sabotage ourselves all the time. We have to get out of our own way and ask for help. #men #dads #fathers #manhood #brotherhood #tribe Click To Tweet

7 Reasons Why Men Don’t Ask for Help

(Listen to the full, short episode as I expand on these points)

  1. We think we can do it all by ourselves.
  2. We think we are the only ones who have our problems.
  3. We’re ashamed of where we are in life compared to others.
  4. We don’t want to destroy how we think other people view us.
  5. We don’t want to be judged for being ourselves.
  6. We fear rejection.
  7. We don’t want to face the truth about ourselves.
As soon as you ask for help, you empower the person who is helping you. #men #manhood #brotherhood #tribe Click To Tweet

Approach Your Wife When You’re in Crisis

How to Approach Your Wife When You’re in Crisis


How should you approach your wife when you’re in crisis? When we men go into crisis, we have a tendency to shut down. We don’t want to appear like we don’t have it all under control. We don’t want our spouses to worry. Some might think that sharing all of our feelings of anxiety, stress, anger, or overwhelm with our spouse is the logical alternative, but this isn’t the answer either. Our wives shouldn’t have to shoulder all our problems.

Today, we have Alliance Member Alex Vanhouten on the show. He is the creator of Defining Dadbod, which aims to create a legacy of health and fitness for our kids. But he wasn’t always an entrepreneur. A few months ago, Alex was a successful employee who was terminated from his job without warning. Alex’s wife is a stay-at-home mom and he didn’t know what to do as the sole support for a single-income household. He tells us what he did before explaining his crisis to his wife to make sure that they both could cope with it in best way possible.
