free your potential

Master the Key: How to Free Your Potential with Mike Flynn


Everyone is talking about finding your “why” or your purpose in life. The idea is that once you know your why, everything else falls into place. But what if you don’t know your why or how to find it? What do you do when you realize you are trapped in a story that you would have never written for yourself? How do you become who you were created to be?

Today we have Mike Flynn back on the show. He is the host of the Impact Entrepreneur podcast and has just released his new book, Master the Key: A Story to Free Your Potential, Find Meaning and Live Life on Purpose.

Mike is going to teach us the 4 elements of ownership, why me must learn to sit in silence with ourselves, and how to find our why. He also reveals the most important key to stepping into our destiny—to believe we are worthy of it.

 

Mike Flynn

Mike Flynn has been advising individuals, as well as executives of companies large and small since 2005. And beginning in 2009, he felt called to do something more, something even greater. Mike commenced that journey in 2015 when he launched a podcast called The Impact Entrepreneur Show. Since then, he has had nearly 200 one-on-one conversations with some of the worlds most elite athletes, thinkers and entrepreneurs in an effort to discover how they are using their personal stories to have a game changing impact in the lives of others.

Master the Key

Master the Key is unlike any personal development book you’ve ever read. Mike illustrates the human quest to find meaning in life through a fictional story that leads readers to the truth.

His main character, Steve, suffers a financial downfall that leads him to a personal crisis. Through a series of conversations with a few wise people, he learns why his life is all wrong.

These factors have prevented him from a meaningful life:

  • Unconsciously allowing a circumstance or someone else’s story direct one’s self-narrative
  • Chaining one’s gifts to the pursuit of status and achievement
  • Allowing a comfort or fear to replace action
  • Misunderstanding the power of community

What You’ll Learn

  • How Mike Flynn’s fictional story helps people tap into and free their potential in a way they never expected or experienced before
  • Why simply knowing our “why” is not enough for us to be successful when pursuing our purpose in life
  • What we have to do before we find our why, which is to believe we are worthy of one
  • How to overcome the negative thoughts you are feeding yourself mentally
  • Why owning your worth and gifts is not egotistical but is actually the best way you can help others
  • How to analyze adversity in a way that it ferments into a fine wine that serves you
  • How to master your narrative and make your own story
  • How we oftentimes believe that if we don’t have the perceived outward success the world has prescribed for us, then we think we’re not worthy of it
  • How the only way to get what we’re worthy of is to be courageous and do something uncomfortable while focusing on a vision that things can be different
  • How to get out of your own way by sitting in silence with yourself
  • The importance of reflecting on the negative events and experiences of the past
  • How to overcome the belief that you are not good enough
  • Why silence scares us so much
  • Developing time tolerance
  • The number one thing a man wants from his spouse—her belief in him
  • How our gifts are often chained to the pursuit of status and achievement
  • How we show up in the world is usually how someone else expects us to show up in the world
  • The first step to Mastering the Key
  • How to own your story
  • How to own your gifts
  • The transformation that occurs when you shed others’ expectations
  • Unchaining your gifts so that you are free to rebuild yourself in your own way
  • When you’re not being intentional about your life, you use your gifts for the wrong purpose. That is why it doesn’t feel fulfilling.
  • The willingness to practice and hone
  • Owning action and owning your community
  • How we set ourselves up for compounding failure when we don’t know our worth
  • Why it may be dangerous to quit a job to pursue a passion
  • What to do before considering taking this leap

How to Stop Being A Miserable F*ck with John Kim

How to Stop Being A Miserable F*ck with John Kim

Sometimes, the men who seem to have it all together are the ones who are suffering the most. Today’s guest John Kim was a licensed therapist and a life coach who was unfulfilled and hating life. A divorce forced him to begin looking inward and start his blog called The Angry Therapist to share his journey from being a boy to becoming a man.

John Kim just published his book, I Used to Be a Miserable F*ck: An Everyman’s Guide to a Meaningful Life, in which he shares his “self-help in a shot glass” tips on how to step into manhood and live a life of purpose and passion! Learn about man dates, bedroom mistakes, and why you shouldn’t pee in the shower.

'Now’s the time men are making their return.'—John Kim @angrytherapist #men #dads #fathers #manhood #fatherhood Click To Tweet

John Kim

John Kim practices complete authenticity and transparency with his many clients (frowned upon in the clinical world) and continues to look for new and unconventional ways to help people. He created the Catalyst Life Coaching Course, an online life coaching certification program, and recently started a new platform called SHFT, an app that gives people support in their pocket when they need it and the chance to become a life coach themselves. John Kim lives in Los Angeles where he makes videos on his phone, CrossFits, and rides his motorcycle to coffee shops to do sessions.

His parents did the best with what they had. They came to America from Korea with no money. They were always working and living in survival mode. His father wasn’t available emotionally and was an alcoholic. A child of the 80s, pop culture raised John and he found self-worth in skateboarding and breakdancing.

As John became and adult, he realized that all he thought he wanted wasn’t bringing him happiness. When he became a therapist and began working for non-profits, he witnessed the byproducts of dads being absent—physically and emotionally. He thought about his own childhood and how the cycle of dysfunction, codependency, and addiction starts with fatherless homes. He often wondered, what are men missing?

'We live in a fatherless nation.'—John Kim @angrytherapist #men #dads #fathers Click To Tweet

What You’ll Learn

  • The difference between responding and reacting
  • How being reactive recreates damaging patterns of the past
  • How to respond in order to change all your human collisions throughout the day
  • How to create emotional space by trying to understand before trying to be understood
  • The most toxic sentences for men—be a man, or man up
  • Why instead of being a man you should practice being human
  • How to give yourself a break when you react negatively
  • How to”re-worth” yourself
  • Why men resist the idea of self-care
  • Why self care helps you to create a stronger life-container so that you can show up better for everyone else
  • How the silliest white lies create hairline cracks of trust in a relationship
  • Why you shouldn’t perform in the bedroom
  • How porn gives a warped definition of what good sex looks like
  • How performing during sex disconnects you and breeds resentment with your partner
  • The goal of John Kim’s book
  • The best way to teach your kids not to lie
  • How to get your kids’ respect by adding an extra layer of vulnerability
  • His parting piece of wisdom for dads—look inward

find your why

Get Lit: Forget the Pressure to Find Your Why with Dominick Quartuccio

Today, there is so much pressure to find our why, to have a clear purpose in life. Some people seem to have it all figured out. We see them on social media living their dreams. Others think they know what they were meant to be, only to find out they’re unfulfilled. Those of us who haven’t defined a clear purpose yet seem to be looked down upon (or maybe we just feel that way). Today’s guest tells us why you need to forget the pressure to find your why and how to let it reveal itself to you.

Dominick Quartuccio, bestselling author of Design Your Future: 3 Simple Steps to Stop Drifting and Take Command of Your Life, is back on The Dad Edge. He says that in looking too hard for our purpose in life, it eludes us. Most people don’t know what their destiny is, and that’s okay. He teaches us how to analyze ourselves to become aware of what lights us up, and how to follow that passion to create a life that excites us. We also go over exactly how to frame conversations about sex with our spouses and how to avoid drift by rewriting our narrative about ourselves.

This show is packed with loads of advice. Are you ready to get lit?

'What you need to focus instead of purpose (which is such a monumental task) is to start to build this acumen around what lights you up. It will give you clues to what that purpose is.'—Dominick Quartuccio #purpose #yourwhy #goals… Click To Tweet

 

 

Dominick Quartuccio

Dominick Quartuccio’s passion is helping people design a future they can’t wait to live in. He once had it all—a so-called successful life and lucrative 15-year career in financial services, running sales teams in Fortune 100 companies. He led “a good life.” The result? He was bored, restless and uninspired. So he left the corporate world and became a human guinea pig, subjecting himself to experiments and experiences that challenged him to assess his long-held beliefs and stories. Gradually, his behavior changed, and his life changed—for the better. Dominick is now a mentor, speaker, trainer and author dedicated to supporting others to be better versions of themselves. He helps successful, stressed and incredibly busy professionals take command of their habits – time, energy, focus and execution—so they can raise their performance in business and all aspects of their day-to-day lives. His purpose now to help people design lives they can’t wait to step into.

Who do you believe yourself to be, and are you interested in authoring a new narrative?—Dominick Quartuccio #selfhelp #personaldevelopment #personalgrowth #men #manhood Click To Tweet

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.

'You don’t stay in a dark place for long if you have good people around you.'—Ryan Greenwood #men #dads #fathers #friendship #tribe Click To Tweet
