FFN 082: Every man a Marketer

Whether you're trying to win the girl, get a job promotion, or get...Whether you're trying to win the girl, get a job promotion, or get new clients, it's critical that you wrap your head around the idea that you are a marketer. Today, I'm going to share with you why this mindset is so important, some of the pitfalls we should avoid, and some very simple strategies you can implement to help you get more in your life. I know there's a lot of guys who think that they're not marketers or that somehow this is a shady way of looking at things but I can assure you it's not. If you have a product (whether it's you or some service or offering you have), you have an obligation to bring it to the market and share it with the world. www.orderofman.com/FFN082 Please leave us a rating and review!   Show More

"Deep in his heart every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue." This is one of my favorite quotes about masculinity and, if you've been following us for long, you've heard it from me a thousand times. Today, I am honored and have the privilege of talking with the author of that quote and one of my top 5 most recommended books on masculinity (Wild at Heart), John Eldredge. We talk about the secret to a man's soul, the single question every man needs to have answered, society's attack on gender, how to embrace authentic masculinity, and why every man is wild at heart. SHOWNOTES The secret to a man's soul The single question EVERY man needs answered Society's attack on gender How to embrace authentic masculinity How masculinity is earned How to overcome being a poser Pornography and the disintegrating family's effect on men and society How to find out who you are Why rites of passage are so important How to focus more on your internal world than your external world The collapse of gender Permission to be men The masculine virtues JOHN ELDREDGE I am honored to introduce you to my guest today, Mr. John Eldredge. When I set out on this journey to become a better man, his book Wild at Heart was one of my go-to resources for an understanding of who I am as a man and how men show up in this world. At the time, I never thought I'd actually have the chance to have a conversation with him but after some back and forth and getting our schedules pinned down, we were finally able to lock something in. John is an author, a counselor, and a teacher. He's been working with men and teaching them how to transform their lives for more than two decades. It's interesting to see that the book, Wild at Heart still strikes a nerve with men across the world more than 15 years after he wrote it. This is a testament to John's understanding of what we, as men, are really after in our lives and how to become the men we are meant to be.

A lot of men seem to believe that arrogance is what makes you strong. It's not true. An over-inflated ego opens up to all sorts of blindspots. Where arrogance makes you weak, humility makes you strong. www.orderofman.com/FFN081 Please leave us a rating and review!

Gents, today is a different kind of podcast and it's unlike everything we've ever done before. Last month I had the opportunity to head to the Spartan World Championships in Tahoe and was able to sit down with my friends, Sal, Adam, and Justin from MindPump Media. They are a fitness company but we don't talk about anything fitness related as we sat down for an hour or so to talk about political correctness, the future of technology including planned communities and cryptocurrency, capitalism, and just about everything in between. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a conversation about everything and nothing with the guys. SHOW NOTES The plague of offense and political correctness Why we're wired to look for bad news The value of analyzing objective data Understanding reality vs. what others are trying to portray How capitalism creates harmony State of current affairs The future of planned communities and commerce Why listening to opposing views is critical for growth The advantages and disadvantages of modern technology The relationship between gun ownership and gun violence How to shut down bad ideas The pitfalls of the two-party system The future of cryptocurrency The negative effects of artificially raising minimum wage SAL, ADAM, AND JUSTIN WITH MINDPUMP I've got three guests for you today, Sal Di Stefano, Adam Schafer, and Justin Andrews. They are the founders of MindPump Media which is a media company dedicated to giving accurate and entertaining information about the media industry, what works, what doesn't, and how you can get control of your health. These guys have a combined experience of over 40 years in the industry and, although we don't talk a thing about fitness today, you can tell but the depth of the conversation we do have, these guys are very intelligent and extremely well-informed. In a world that seems to regurgitate the same basic health information over and over again, Sal, Adam and Justin are extremely entertaining and bring a whole new perspective to the way we look at fitness, nutrition, and health.

Take a look around society. We see a lot of weak people. Mentally, people allow the smallest of circumstances to get ahold of them and dictate their actions. Emotionally, they their emotions to get the better of them and, physically, people are unhealthy. If you have any hope of becoming the man you are meant to be, you are going to need to learn to develop strength in each of those areas. And, the only way to get physically, mentally, and emotionally, is to embrace discomfort. www.orderofman.com/FFN080 Please leave us a rating and review!

Today, I've got a different podcast for you today. My guest is Tim Ballard and he is the founder of Operation Under Ground Railroad, a non-profit organization designed to save children around the world from child sex trafficking. My wife initially introduced me to Tim's work and, after following him for sometime, I'm inspired by the good he's doing in the world in the wake of some horrific atrocities more men need to know about. Today, we talk about stories of his team's rescues, how these young children are being helped to recover, how to find a calling in life, how to avoid "the flinch" when undercover, and the fight against child sex trafficking. SHOW HIGHLIGHTS The seriousness of child sex trafficking Stories of children rescues "Aftercare" and helping children recover How to find a calling in life How to avoid the "flinch" when undercover The men behind these rescues How meaningful work changes a man How to rally people around a cause Identification and extraction tactics and efforts How you can get involved TIM BALLARD My guest today is Tim Ballard, the founder of Operation Underground Railroad, a non-profit designed to rescue the victims of child sex trafficking. To date, Tim and his team have rescued 745 victims and assisted in the arrest of 365 traffickers around the world. Originally, Tim worked for 12 years as a Special Agent with the Department of Homeland Security but became frustrated with the red tape and inability he had to actually remove these children from the horrible situations he was responsible for investigating. In 2013, he left the department and founded Operation Underground Railroad. Today, we're going to talk about that process, the good he's now doing in the world, how to take action on the problems you see in the world, and how you can get involved in this fight.

Recognizing that we, as men, wear masks might just be one of the most difficult self-evaluation processes we can go through. It's difficult because sometimes we've been wearing a mask for so long that it actually becomes part of who we are and how we define ourselves. My guest today, New York Times Bestselling Author Lewis Howes, joins me to talk about why men are failing so many benchmarks, how to recognize and confront what is holding you back, why the masks we wear hinder our personal growth, and the 9 masks of masculinity. SHOW HIGHLIGHTS What is the Mask of Masculinity Why men are underperforming in every benchmark The 9 masks we as men tend to wear How to recognize which mask you might be wearing The common thread between all the masks How to confront the things that hold you back How to stop defining yourself by the mask you wear How our masks hinder personal growth How to embrace discomfort and vulnerability How to avoid overcompensating for weaknesses How to better understand your emotions Which mask I tend to wear LEWIS HOWES My guest today is New York Times Bestselling Author, Mr Lewis Howes. I know a ton of you are already familiar with his work and what he's up to with his own company and podcast (which is listened to millions of times per month), The School of Greatness. We had Lewis on the show a while back but since then, he has released his newest book, The Mask of Masculinity. What I enjoyed a lot about this book is that Lewis really pulled back the curtain in his own life and you can tell by the way he's analyzed who he is and what makes him tick that this is a process he doesn't just talk about, this is a process that he's actually gone through and uncovered for himself. Lewis Howes had a lot of success as a professional athlete (which hints at the mask he was wearing) only to find himself injured and wondering how he could redefine himself and tap into who he really is. Gentlemen, gear up, prepare to challenge some thoughts about who you are, and let's unpack the idea of the mask of masculinity.

As a lot of you already know, I interviewed Navy SEAL and New York Times Bestselling author, Jocko Willink, earlier this week. One thing that he said that really stuck out to me was the difference between former military members who are able to maintain their discipline after the service and those who aren't. I have personally seen both. I've seen veterans who make a seamless transition into civilian life and I see those that really flounder and I've often wondered what the difference was as well. What Jocko said is that the difference between the two is whether or not they've found a new mission. During my time in the military, the mission was always very clear to me. We were instructed on the objective, given our marching orders, then left to carry them out. But, when you transition out of the military, there's no one to give you any marching orders and you're left on your own to figure it all out. What's interesting to me is that one of my favorite authors, John Eldredge (who, by the way, just agreed to come on the podcast) happens to be the author of one of my favorite quotes. He says, "Deep in his heart, every man longs for a battle to fight, and adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue." I want to focus the conversation today on the first component of that quote, a battle to fight. Men are warriors. Not all warriors have to be battle proven in war but I do believe it's in our nature to look for problems, to be on the lookout for the enemy or, at a minimum, a threat to our livelihood and the people we have a responsibility for. I look around in society today and I see men who have no real sense of direction or purpose. I know you do to - maybe it's you. You look into their eyes and you can see that all the enthusiasm and excitement they may have once had is all but gone. I would argue it's because these men, as Jocko would say, have no mission or, as John Eldredge would say, they have no battle to fight. So today, I'm going to encourage you to pick a fight - to pick a battle. I don't mean a literal fight with someone or a group of people. I mean that I want you to take a look around at society and engage in a cause worth fighting for. This could be a career calling, a fitness journey, the family you're working to provide, protect, and preside for. I really don't care what it is but I do want to give you four steps to engaging in the fight of your life. As I talk about these four steps, I'm going to give you a lot of questions as opposed to answers. I can't decide what your battle is. You have to decide that for yourself and the best way for me to help you do that is to give you some questions to ponder and consider. IDENTIFY THE ENEMY The first step in picking a battle to fight is to talk a look around society and identify what you see as being wrong with the world. Write down everything that comes to mind. In a way, you're identifying the enemy. Not a literal enemy but the thing you're going to fight against. For men, 3 years ago, I saw that there was a real problem with the state of affairs for men. Like I mentioned before, I've seen too many men who have lost the spark of life and don't know where to turn. Couple that with the fact that society in general doesn't like or approve of masculinity (until they need men to do something) and it became painfully obvious that there was a problem. In many ways I set out to solve my own problems as I was one of the men to which I'm referring. What bothers you? What injustices do you see in the world? What problems do you have in your personal life? What could be better about this life? The answers to those questions will help you identify the battle you may have been born to fight. Remember, you're not limiting yourself here. You're just brainstorming. RECON Once, you've identified some problems with the world - the ones that are meaningful to you, you're probably going to find a common theme between them. There are probably a few that overlap or stand out to you. If that's the case, I'd recommend you start doing some reconnaissance. Who is already addressing this problem? What solutions are already available? How has this problem been addressed in the past? What gaps are there in the solution to this problem? When you start answering questions like these, you start giving yourself the power to do something about the problems you see with the world. BATTLE PLAN Once you've identified the enemy and you've done some recon regarding the battle already being wages and the gaps that need to be filled, you can start planning your battle. What solutions will you offer? How will you offer them? What assets do you need? What in your life do you need to improve in order to be the champion of this cause? Who do you need to know in order to bring the fight? Once you know the answers to these questions, you should then ask yourself, what is the next first step? ENGAGE You don't have to have this all mapped out. You just need to know what the next step is because the next step in your battle is to engage. Maybe it's to create a website or a podcast. Maybe you need to ask for a promotion at work or propose a project to your employer. Maybe you just need to start talking about some of this stuff on social media. I don't know what this looks like for you but you're going to feel if it's right only when you start engaging in the fight. It does no good to do all this planning without actually taking the fight to the enemy. I see too many men plan and strategize and think about what they want and then never do anything about it. I want you to take the next first step. Once you've done that, I want you to take the next first step. Over and over again. When you find yourself getting off track, adjust and keep driving. You're going to feel it. I know this isn't easy, especially if you feel like your soul has been dead for some time now but I can promise you that when you follow these steps and choose your battle your soul will come alive for the first time in years. You'll feel like you have a calling - a purpose again. You'll walk around with your head held high knowing that you're doing the work of a man. I know it's certainly been true for me. www.orderofman.com/FFN078 Please leave us a rating and review!

There is no shortage of motivational events, courses, seminars, quotes, and memes. Don't get me wrong, motivation has its purpose but discipline is a far greater asset on your path to accomplishing big things in your life. Where motivation falls short, discipline picks up the slack. Today, I'm joined by a man that needs no introduction, Jocko Willink, to talk about connecting future ambitions with present actions, why every man must find his mission, how to overcome fear and procrastination, and his mantra, "Discipline Equals Freedom." SHOW HIGHLIGHTS Why discipline equals freedom Key military tactics that translate into civilian life Anticipating the delayed results of discipline The pros and cons of focusing on strengths vs. weaknesses Where Jocko's discipline comes from How to connect your future ambitions with your present actions The importance of defining your path How to develop mental strength Why every man needs a mission The role of accountability when it comes to being more disciplined How to overcome procrastination Rasing kids to be strong and disciplined How to overcome your fear Where to start: mental preparation or physical action JOCKO WILLINK Gentlemen, I am stoked to introduce you to my return guest, Jocko Willink. I'm sure that you know Jocko but in case you've been living under a rock the past 4-5 years or so, let me introduce you to him. He is a Former Navy SEAL and commander of Task Unit Bruiser (the most decorated special forces unit of the Iraqi War), a recipient of the Bronze and Silver Star, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blackbelt, a New York Times Bestselling author of three books, and arguably one of the most disciplined men on this planet. I, like you, have been following him ever since I ran across his book, Extreme Ownership, in Barnes & Noble and have been fortunate enough to develop a close enough relationship with him and his team that I when I heard he was coming out with a new book, Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual, I was able to get a message to him and get him back on the show. Gentlemen, strap in, get your notepads out, and get ready to tune into one of the most qualified men I know to talk about how discipline will give you the freedom you're after.
