Reignite Your Marriage After Having Kids

How to Reignite Your Marriage After Having Kids

When the kids are born, men focus on being a father. We cannot falter in our role as a provider and protector. Our spouses focus on being mothers, which is a twenty-four-hour, seven-days-a-week job. Our marriages inevitably suffer, but many parents feel guilty for leaving the kids.

On today’s short episode, I’m going share my personal experience and why you need to leave the kids behind and spend some time getting to know your spouse again.

Keep Love Alive

3 Ways to Keep Love Alive

In this episode of Thursday Throwdown, we are going to talk about our wives. As men, we have a hard time balancing our relationships, especially when kids come into the picture. Most of the time, it’s the relationship with the woman in our life that gets put on the back burner. We get lazy. We take it for granted. This is when our marriages are in danger of becoming stagnant. So how can we feed our relationship to keep love alive? Here are three ways.

Never stop courting your spouse

When we first meet our spouse, we are respectful and conscientious. We constantly compliment her and focus all our attention on her. We have to keep the courtship going.

Have purposeful undistracted conversations every day

Our partner feels love and connection when we listen to her. Make sure you’re not looking at the TV or checking your phone when she’s talking to you.

Set aside special quality time alone

Make date night a priority. It’s not a luxury, but a necessity. Don’t feel guilty for leaving the kids. They might need a break from you too.

how to develop self-confidence and become the best version of yourself David Wygant

How to Develop Self-Confidence and Become the Best Version of Yourself with David Wygant

Self-confidence is something most men struggle with every day, but the majority of us suffer in silence. But what if you had tools and resources to become confident and live your life as the best version of yourself?

David Wygant is a dating coach and inspiration for the movie Hitch. He helps men and women deal with insecurities and tackle fear to become the best version of who they’re meant to be. Today he shares his surprising secrets on why men lack self-confidence and how we can get it back.

Lack of Self-Confidence is NOT Hardwired into Our DNA

When David played baseball in 6th grade, he remembers his coach calling his father the wrong name. His father never spoke up to correct the coach and allowed himself to be called the wrong first name the entire season. This made a deep impression on David, who was determined not to end up like his dad.

David says that we are all born fresh souls. We don’t come into this world with low self-confidence; we learn from watching our parents.  So he began walking the streets of New York to observe people and discovered that when you’re able to connect and read people, you come across as the most confident person in the world.

What Happened to Our Belief in Ourselves?

When we’re young, we know what we want. We have big dreams and are not old enough to doubt ourselves yet. But then bullies, teachers, parents, and culture break us down. They tell us our dreams are stupid or unrealistic. Eventually, we end up believing it.

Listening to Fear Instead of Intuition

Confidence isn’t taught in school or college, and men feel they have nowhere to go. Men are afraid of being vulnerable and want to avoid confrontation. We live mostly in our heads, and when these issues stay inside, they can never be resolved. We end up living our lives according to our fears instead of following our intuition.

Go Back to Who You Were Before the World Screwed You Up

Like David watched how his father behaved, your kids are watching you. They see if you’re acting weak with others. So what’s the first step to becoming more self-confident?

David Wygant says first to know you’re not alone. You’re in the majority. Many men suffer from a lack of self-confidence. But your ego is preventing you from reaching out, and if you lead an egotistical life, you’ll make the same mistakes over and over again and die without accomplishing your dreams. To stop the cycle, you must step out of comfort zone and expose your vulnerability. Admitting you’re weak puts you in a position of strength and is the only way to give yourself the opportunity to get help.

David Wygant’s Dadly Wisdom

Have no expectations for your kid. None.

You might dream of your child becoming quarterback or a lawyer, but you must give up your ideas of who they should be and allow them to be the wonderful person they are.

Rob Youngblood on How To Successfully Raise A Family As a Single Dad

Rob Youngblood, TV personality, motivational speaker, victim of a Chuck Norris beating (LOL!), and single father with purpose comes on the GDP Podcast to talk about successfully raising kids through divorce.

Be the best version of yourself. It’s a wonderful phrase and so true, but when you don’t know who you really are in the first place, being the best version of you is nearly impossible. Rob Youngblood, former actor and news anchor and, currently, motivational speaker and coach, talks with the GDP about getting yourself to that best version as well as being a great dad, even in the face of difficult circumstances.

The Man in the Mirror

Sometimes we tell ourselves our lives are great, even when there is a storm of turmoil raging inside. The hardest part is facing the stuff we don’t like about ourselves, confronting the inner demons so we can be our best selves. Identifying and facing those issues is not easy, but it helps us grow and provides a great example for those who count on us.

Rob Youngblood on Prioritizing

Life will always throw curve balls. It’s what we do with these curve balls that defines who we are and our resiliency. Sometimes these challenges force us to choose between our personal wants and our responsibility to those who rely on us-AKA our children. These choices aren’t always easy to make, even though we love our children more than anything. Prioritizing our wants versus what we need to do puts the focus on what we deem important.

Be Real

As men, we a generally not known to be expressive with our feelings. We tend to bottle up our anger and frustration and sadness when we really should be sharing these emotions. Having a solid and trusting support system you can feel safe expressing these emotions in is crucial to our overall health and well-being.

Our lives inevitably change as we get older. Embracing these changes and providing a healthy example of how to manage these changes for our children will help us and our kids enjoy life that much more.
