The Art of Masculinity with Johnny Elsasser


If we don’t know who we are or what’s important to us, we will be driven by outside forces and will lack the strength to show up in our lives with purpose and integrity.

This can lead to a feeling of being lost, powerless, trapped, and alone. Worst of all, it can cause us to dislike the man in the mirror—if we can even recognize him at all.

Today’s guest is Johnny Elsasser. He is a former Army Ranger, a men’s leadership coach, and the host of The Art of Masculinity podcast. He is going to tell us how to create a Masculine Blueprint so that we can identify what kind of men we want to become. In living by our own code, we will always know who we are and where we stand.

Feel the power of living as the person you really are.

Johnny Elsasser

John served in the Elite 2nd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment with 4 combat tours between Iraq and Afghanistan, and protected the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq for 5 years out of Baghdad. He lost his own sense of purpose when he came back to the U.S. full time and became depressed and alone. This emptiness ended in divorce.

Today, John’s found new purpose in starting his own podcast to shed the light of how alpha men struggle and how they can together. He’s been featured in podcasts such as Tuff Love, Destined to Be, Think Yourself Healthy, and others to teach men how to build a strong foundation in authentic masculinity. John Elsasser is truly on a mission to help as many men as possible own their masculinity in the way that honors them.

The Art of Masculinity

Through a quickly evolving world we are living in today, most men were shown at a young age to act, feel, and conduct their lives in a certain way. The Art of Maculinity helps empower men to embrace both forms of energy—the Masculine and Feminine—so that they can step out of their hard shells and create a life where there’s equal strength and toughness while still retaining fluidity and softness.

What You’ll Learn

  • How to transition out of occupations you identify with
  • If you lack direction, you will succumb to dark places.
  • You feel less than others when you don’t know who you are
  • Look into your subconscious. You’re acting on things you didn’t choose.
  • Knowing who you are, you can through anything.
  • Live and pay attention to the journey. You are having experiences you should be enjoying.
  • Drop the ego to evolve.
  • The toxicity of the bravado mentality
  • Your Masculine Blueprint:
    • Where were your values? Do they serve you right now? Keep the ones that still hold true. Get rid of the ones you don’t need anymore.
    • Look at whom you admire. What traits do they have?
    • Combine your old values that still serve you with the new ones you want.
    • Choose 3-5 of these traits to define the man you truly want to be.
  • You will never have regrets if you live as who you are. You will always love the man in the mirror.

The Dad Difference with Bryan Loritts

What does it really take to be a great father? How can we inspire our kids to reach for more, even if our fathers didn’t show us a good example?

Bryan Loritts is a pastor and the award-winning author of seven books, including The Dad Difference: The 4 Most Important Gifts You Can Give to Your Kids.

Today Bryan teaches us the four RITEs of fatherhood and how to implement each. He tells us how we can be proactive about our operating systems as fathers, becoming constant guides and teachers so that our kids have the best chance of living a meaningful and fulfilling life.

He’s also the founder and president of the Kainos Movement- an organization committed to seeing the multiethnic church becoming the new normal in our country. He’s the husband of Korie and the proud father of Quentin, Myles and Jaden. Bryan has been a featured speaker at the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit, Catalyst and a host of other events.

What You’ll Learn

  • The power of presence and modeling
  • The 4 gifts, or RITEs
    • Relationship
    • Teaching
    • Integrity
    • Experiences
  • Leadership is born from relationship, not authority.
  • 90% of being a great dad is just showing up.
  • There is a profound connection between home and society.
  • Dads are the “tenured professors” of the home.
  • We are always in teaching-mode non-verbally.
  • Integrity is not moral perfection but admitting when you’re wrong and making amends.
  • Teaching involves connecting real life to spiritual principles.
  • Give your children experiences instead of gifts.
  • Why Bryan took his kids to Guatemala to work with the poor.
  • Letting kids experience the negative outcomes of their bad decisions

Tapping into Integrity

Tapping into Integrity and Curiosity for a Richer Life

Integrity means being a whole person and making sure that our words, actions, and vision are all on the same trajectory toward a meaningful life. As we get older, we tend to lose the innate integrity and curiosity that we were born with. We forget about the dreams that inspired us. We often fall completely out of alignment with that spark in our lives.

Thursday Throwdowns are our short episodes about the everyday dad who is doing heroic things to optimize his life. Today we have one of our Dad Edge Alliance members on to talk about tapping into integrity and curiosity. You will walk away from this show knowing exactly what it means to be whole and how to stay true to yourself through life’s ups and downs.

If you stop learning, you’ve almost stopped living. #dads #men #fathers #integrity #manhood #tribe #brotherhood Click To Tweet
