Why Men Thrive in Tribes

Why Men Thrive in Tribes: The Dad Edge on Fit Dad Nation


Why do some men thrive and others merely survive? One of the secrets of successful, motivated, passionate men is that they surround themselves with a tribe to support them, advise them, and inspire them.

Today we visit the Fit Dad Nation podcast hosted by Steve Roy. We discuss how we can optimize the 5 dimensions of manhood, which are health, work, marriage, children, and finances.

We also talk about why men thrive in tribes and how to excel by surrounding yourself with other men who have what you want.

Why Men Thrive in Tribes

Larry Hagner is a dad to four boys, the founder of GoodDadProject.com, speaker, author, entrepreneur, host of The Dad Edge Podcast, and someone I’m proud to call a friend and mentor.
Larry also runs a highly successful program for dads called the Dad Edge Alliance and I was a member for a long time myself. One thing is clear; he knows how men think and why they thrive or don’t thrive. So today I asked him to share his thoughts on why being part of a tribe of like-minded men can mean the difference between success and failure.

He says “Let’s face it, the most successful people in the world are successful for one simple reason…they surround themselves with other like-minded successful people. However, most men think they have to live life as a one man wolf pack. We feel we must take on life without any help, without any assistance from others, and most of us have an overwhelming fear of failure. Not to mention, we don’t want anyone else to see that deep down we struggle, we have insecurities, and we can be overwhelmed by everyday life.”

Larry shares his theory on why most men live with the lone wolf syndrome and why it’s holding us back from being successful in so many areas.
The reason I do everything in groups now with the Fit Dad Nation, with the Inner Circle being a perfect example of a successful tribe, is because I’ve seen how much more powerful it can be versus working with an individual. It’s not even close.

We need brotherhood and support especially since the first thing a man will sacrifice is his own well-being and I’ve personally seen this play out over and over in the Fit Dad Nation. I also lived this way for many years and put myself behind everyone and everything else. A band of brothers will hold you accountable and won’t let you give up on yourself. He also says that isolation is the enemy of excellence, which is such a powerful statement because we as men think we can do everything alone and don’t need anyone. It’s just not the way we are wired.

How to Surrender Your Ego to Supercharge Your Life

How to Surrender Your Ego to Supercharge Your Life


Are you taking ownership of your business, relationships, health, and future? Or are you blaming things outside yourself for a stagnant life? What is preventing you from living as your best self?

It’s the ego.

Most of us don’t want to admit we don’t have it all figured out. We don’t want people to see that we’re vulnerable. We close ourselves to learning when we’re afraid to ask questions. The ego blocks us from growing.

Today we have an everyday dad on the show to talk about how to drill down to your core values and surrender your ego to supercharge your life.

Why Men Are Better Together

Why Men Are Better Together


Today I’m sitting down with everyday dad and alliance member, Mike. He’s having a great time now being a father, but it wasn’t always this way.

Mike is the father of an 8 year old daughter and a 5 year old son. When his son was first born, he couldn’t understand why he didn’t feel a connection to his baby. He thought something was wrong with him but was afraid to tell anyone about it.

As his kids grew, his noticed his patience was thin, and he was worried he’d end up being “the dad that yelled a lot.” He was also afraid that he wouldn’t have all the answers to the questions his kids asked, and he suffered chronic anxiety. This was a huge catalyst for change.

One of the hardest things for men to do is ask for help, but Mike was tired of doing life on his own. He didn’t want to lean on his wife for everything either. That’s when he made himself a priority and joined The Dad Edge Alliance.

Listen to Mike’s journey as a dad, and why men are better together!

“We have one shot in life to be a dad. Why not make it epic.” If you’re a regular listener, you will recognize that this is the intro for The Dad Edge Podcast. Our kids grow up fast and we get older every day. We can’t afford to wait around and see if our dreams come true. We have to take action to create an epic life and we have to do it today.

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
