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.

Women No Longer Admire Men

Maybe you have at some point had a breakup. No, for sure at some point you've had a breakup, whether it's a divorce or simply the end of a string of dates. And leading up to that point you've felt a distance from her, a disrespect certainly or even a disdain.

Steve Jobs Dies

I'm not a technical person and I'm a woman, so technical gadgets etc. don't play a huge role in my life the way they do for many men, but I have to say that I LOVE my iphone like it's a living thing.  I have raved on to friends numerous times about my awe of the technology that Apple created/developed with that phone and the subsequent ipad etc.

I have also always admired how Apple not only withstood the onset of Microsoft all those years ago, but excelled by using innovation and creativity as its centrepiece.

What the "Midnight Hour" Gives You as a Man

When I went to see Woody Allen's film, Midnight in Paris, I was told it's a "romantic comedy" about a bad relationship, and expected all kinds of lessons about attraction, dating and marriage. I didn't at all expect that it was going to be an equally thought provoking guide to career choices coming from our inexplicable experiences with the unexpected. That it would treat the two prime concerns of men in the form of women and work in equal balance, or how it is that the hour of midnight has a role in a man's life, were the biggest surprises of all.

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...

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?
