What You Owe Yourself as a Man

As a guy, you spend a lot of your time helping others (or being commanded by others.) Now is the time to remember - always - what you will always owe yourself.
There’s a special thing that happens over time when you use these systems for personal growth that we provide you.
It doesn’t matter how well you know them. With enough time, you notice new aha’s, new insights, because of the things that happen to you in everyday life.
It happened to me again recently.

Death as a Masculine Power

What does the death of a male mentor mean for your own identity as a man?
The funeral I am driving to, is that of Dr. G. Alec Stewart, a prominent physicist, and Dean of the Honors College where I went to school. In fact, it was his idea to even have an Honors College.
To me, he was THE mentor, benefactor, and advocate.

If You "Really Want It," You Have to "Know It"

Men's identities are very entwined with their ambitions, the building blocks of their career missions. Yet as men the world over all know, the road to major success is littered with minor failures.

The Power of the "Prometheus Instinct" in Men

When you isolate each trait of being a man and master it, you literally have a Superhero's utility belt for living a powerful life.
Every now and again, big ideas just STRIKE, and then there’s a whole new set of tools, techniques, and skills to harvest for you.
Would you be surprised to learn there is an all new way that men can look at women and work, called Mature Masculine Power?

One Strike, You're Out! (with Women)

I was struck by a sudden realization recently about the concept of "which hat am I wearing" that we've covered many times in the teleseminars of http://www.menspsychology.com/university.

It was this: As men, we all wear "career hats" all day long, often every day. It can be a pervasive habit to always keep that career hat on. But...

Turning Shame and Rage Into Masculine Power

Take all that embarrassment and shame, all the rage it causes in you, and transform it to masculinity and the powerful rewards within.
You may have heard it before – that “shame and guilt are not the same thing.”
It’s true. Every therapist says so, and might add that guilt is something that is useful and guides you, while shame is something destructive, pervasive and harms your life and your success.
Also all true.

Michael Jordan Wrestles Angels

It's a new year and the stakes in your life couldn't be higher. You just know it's time to finally kick some ass and make things happen for yourself.

You could be in your twenties and for most of your life so far, you couldn't get yourself a girlfriend. You know that if you can't do that, you'll have an even harder time getting on track to the life you want in the future, which might include getting married. You can't even think about career issues right now with a challenge like this.
