Benefits of Practicing Gratitude

The Life-Changing Benefits of Practicing Gratitude


We all go through ups and downs, and it’s easy to focus on whatever is going wrong in our lives, but being stressed and worried all the time works against us. A negative mindset literally makes us dumber! But we can shift our attitude by appreciating what we do have going for us.

Today we have on new Dad Edge Alliance member, Dwayne. He came into the group at an all-time low. His marriage was in trouble, he was in debt, and he was depressed. As he began to target all aspects of his life in the alliance, he also adopted the habit of looking at all that was going right.

Within a few months, Dwayne made incredible progress. His marriage is in a good place, he paid off 6K in debt, and is smiling again. Discover the other life-changing benefits of practicing gratitude in this short episode!

Dad Edge Alliance Q&A: Coming to Terms with Your Own Bulls*t with Gary John Bishop

Dad Edge Alliance Q&A: Coming to Terms with Your Own Bullsh*t with Gary John Bishop


How come we’re not happy when we get what we want? So many of us believe that if we just made more money, if we got that promotion we wanted, or if we lost that last ten pounds we’d be happy. Then sometimes we finally achieve our goals and realize we’re still unfulfilled. This is because we bring ‘us.’ We always have ourselves and our limited beliefs.

Today we have a live Dad Edge Alliance Q&A session with Gary John Bishop. His book How to Unf*ck Yourself just made the NY Times bestseller list. He has been on our show twice before and was a speaker at our Dad Edge Summit.

This episode is in-your-face and explicit. Some of it you may not like hearing, but Gary John Bishop will tell you (in his Shrek-like Scottish accent) how to come to terms with your own bullsh*t so that you can be relentless in executing your goals while also finding the joy in where you are, here and now.

'It’s not about getting there, it’s about loving working it out.' – @GaryJohnBishop #personalgrowth #selfdevelopment #motivation #lifelessons #wisdom Click To Tweet

'If you don’t find yourself on the doorstep of your own bullsh*t, you’re doing it wrong.' – @GaryJohnBishop #selfdiscovery #personalgrowth #men #manhood Click To Tweet

What You’ll Learn

  • His counterintuitive approach to being a human being
  • Why your thoughts are a crappy guide
  • The sanctity of your word: why what you say is so important
  • How your success in life is exclusively tied to you keeping your promises to yourself
  • How to speak, be, and act to become a force of nature
  • What it means when you have crazy people in your life
  • Why a lot of personal growth doesn’t work
  • Why transformation is not possible until you come to terms with your own bullshit (not your wife, your job, or your life).
  • Why you need to be the center of your universe
  • What a mid-life crisis really is midlife
  • Why you should question everything you calmly accept
  • How labeling things perpetuates the battle
  • The fallacy of common sense
  • How to manage your family when you are growing and evolving as a person
  • How to create framework for your kids to question everything and find themselves
  • Why you have to find the joy in your life in where you are instead of where you’re going
  • How to give yourself a break when you screw up
'It’s not the pretending that screws you over as a human being. It’s the pretending that you’re not pretending...' – @GaryJohnBishop #humanity #happiness #authenticity #motivation #wisdom Click To Tweet

4 Simple Steps to Getting What You Want with Jake Herbert

Jake Herbert is back on the show! He was an Olympic Wrestler whose life’s dream was to win the gold medal in the 2016 Olympics. My boys and I were there to see the trials. Sadly, his Olympic dream didn’t come true.

Now Jake Herbert is a real estate coach who helps people see their maximum potential and creates a path to lead them there.

The Dangers of Internalizing Stress


Stress causes 90% of the health issues that are killing us today. Every thought or emotion we have releases chemicals into the environment in which our cells grow. This causes inflammation, disease, and bad habits that are damaging mentally and physically.

In this 100th episode of Thursday Throwdown, Dr. Ryan Wohlfert talks about how internalizing feelings and emotions leads to a build up of stress, and how we as men and fathers can boost our health and achieve sustainable success by surrounding ourselves with likeminded men and sharing our challenges with them.

Why do most men internalize? We may not even be conscious of it, but many of us have the belief that we’re not worthy to be happy and successful. Getting with a men’s group helps us to find out who we are, what we want, and why we want it. A tribe of brothers gives unbiased advice, moral support, and holds us accountable, so we can achieve longterm, sustainable success in money, work, and relationships

Every thought or emotion we have releases chemicals into the environment in which our cells grow. #men #menshealth #stress #anxiety #fitness Click To Tweet
