And yoke is that. It's just a union. It's bringing together all the different pieces of yourself earned whether that be good or bad or really i think more specifically and more necessarily the ugly seeing every single piece of yourself and not trying to fix it or make it or try to be good or not trying to categorize anything religious.

And i'm going to accept every single piece of myself and that is what i have felt that my yoga practice honestly has always been but i think that yoga going it's talking about in the mainstream is always categorized as minutes at this point in whenever we talk about it. It's always like yoga poses in sequences. It's not about this connection to the truth of yourself and relate needing to accept every single facet of yourself and i think of joking as a moment by moment journey that is always evolving in that will it's time just becomes more complex and more decadent honestly but just becomes more journey becomes more intense

"If we now transition from that leader in all this what was marchant. Iago's big is failure today. My biggest failure was not owning my shit earlier. On in my marriage and and really valuing who. I am so meaning that i was either hitting that what we call the she button. She did this she did this. She this or i was owning everything in unhealthy way. And that left me in this sort of bipolar bortex of either blaming her for everything. Or i'm taking responsibility for everything and i mostly took responsibility for everything the only times i blamed her for everything was when i finally responded or lashed out in unhealthy way and so instead of only unhealthy way i would. I would.

"Are the very things. That i was creating for myself and getting from therapists and coaches and i just put it together and said this is what men need when they've been slap in the face and then as we developed more. This is what's cool. Is that the principals and the ideas and the things that we taught we started to see the effects on the man in all these different aspects of life and so originally we were almost like crisis intervention or like getting guys that are like in the midst of battle and now we're starting to get guys before they get to crisis because that's the thing especially if you're listening to podcast right now. You may not be in crisis but you may be headed towards crisis in. You know it and you're waiting and you're procrastinating. You're not doing shit about it and eventually you will be in crisis you will either be in crisis or you'll fix their shit own your shed and have the marriage you but we don't preach like oh have this most amazing marriage because we know that marriage takes two people as a man. You can lead that. And you can offer solutions and show up and fullness and lead and give boundaries on all those things but the other person the wife in the situation has to also meet you there. And if she's not willing to then that's the problem and that was that was my situation. I've started to grow the fuck up. I started to set boundaries. I started to communicate and unfortunately in my situation it was beyond repair and so i was the one who filed for divorce. I chose it knowing what i was getting into. It was a prayerful consideration of thoughtful consideration. Whatever you wanna call it. For months and months and months to where i finally felt like there was no going back but i made that choice and it was hardest thing i've ever done but honestly was probably the best thing i could have ever done for myself. Yeah i mean as you speak their. You know you're saying a lot of things in leading marriage is another great way to go right. You know you hear some of these people out there. Like hey puff your chest show up like this show up like that right in this red pill stop. What does leading the marriage. What the definition for you of what leading marriages. I think the first thing is presence is being present when you're with your wife in present when you're with your kids and when you lack that being to correction right your wife knows if you're present or not she will tell you you're not present and when that happens because we all struggle with it we got these little things that are the scroll on all day. And they're addicting and if this is constantly your hand you have to be open to that correction of saying. Hey you're fucking up your buddy you're you're you're not present so presences number one number two showing up in your energy where you actually give a fuck right even about the things you don't want to do necessarily but where you actually make it a priority where you make the family priority like with our very Innate there intuitive and they're very family oriented most. I'm not you know it's a generalization. But for the most part they are way more nurturing and all about the men are men have to like find the balance of where these big strong tough macho guys. We go to work which was wrenches. We do this kind of things or like me. We sit behind the keyboard or do these types of talks and so maybe my hands don't earn his calloused as as the next guy but whatever it is that we do we're more work oriented whereas women tend to be more home or you know. And i don't want to come off like they're domesticated and they just have to be this way meeting..

"And i was like fuck that. Let's just thrive like forget about survival like forget about worrying about cove it and all these things taking you out. You're gonna die at some point you might as well live and not men. Not many men truly actually live and or full of life. There's a saying that it's it's really about not looking for a purpose but looking for what makes you come alive and go do that. That's what the world needs. I can't remember who actually quoted. It's a philosopher. Some sort the world needs more men who've come alive. And that's my mission right so fulfillment right feeling fulfill not necessarily just getting those trophies. Making those check boxes really feeling. Ill filled within and wanting to do the work to fulfill yourself day in and day out and take care of yourself to become the external leader that we want to become. Yeah i would say it goes beyond inner fulfillment goes to external fulfillment where where your mission then becomes about fulfilling other people serving your wife and your kids serving your community. Serving in business. Because there's no greater fulfillment than actually giving you give but if you're giving always just to receive than it's backwards. You've got it backwards. You're you're trying to give to get and it becomes a problem now. I'm not saying that we shouldn't have a reaction or invest something. There should be some sort of return. But there's something nice about and this is why people are philanthropists. This is why people go down on feed the homeless or do different things because they realized that. If i can do something that's bigger than me. I'm now living alive so fulfillment. There's a self-fulfilment actually we call self actualization psychology which comes from this idea. Like you're talking about where. I'm doing the things that make me. Come alive that self actualization but then there's this other part that's in external peace that a lot of men are missing as well and and that's why they're they're so focused on the self-fulfilment self actualization bullshit that they're killing at work because that's fulfilling to them. But because they feel inept at home they're crumbling at home and they are no longer the ceo's of their life or.

As to say that black fungi. Bacteria like specimens also appeared atop the rovers. They didn't stop there. The team also examined photos taken by nasa's high rise and found evidence for amorphous specimens within a crevice that change shape and location than disappeared. It is well established that a variety of terrestrial organisms survive. Mars like conditions. The team concludes given the likelihood earth has been seeding mars with life and life has been repeatedly transferred between worlds. It would be surprising if there was no life on mars.

"They try to pull other people into that. They want other people to feel sorry for them. I see this a lot in guys. Where especially they've been wronged. Their wives cheated on them or something like that. They'll go and make friends with the family. They'll go make friends with other friends and they'll try to get out ahead of everything to pull everyone into their pity party of till sorry for me. I was the one that was cheated on. She was really mean to me. She was a bit. She was this she was this she was that and all that does is basically put you in the victim. Mind set of saying people have to feel sorry for me. Because if they don't dan you know i must not be valid. Must not be important must not be loved and that is victim mindset that that mentality will not get you anywhere that mentality will keep you stuck as a victim as a loss little boy as opposed to an empowered men. So here's the difference. Empowered men. don't make excuses. They don't look for validation but they look for a solution. This is huge because you can sit here and go. Well my gosh you know. All the shit's bad and everything's gone to hell in handbasket. My life is over. My wife is wanting to divorce. And all these things and you can sit in that shame and you can sit in that victimhood for so long. But eventually you've got get up from that you know just like my video the other day. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. You've got to get out of that was up gay and he knows very well if you go watch. Andy's video you know. He could easily done this. He could easily been like when he called me. That day he tells the story. He called me that day from florida. And he's like. I can't even go to my house because she put order protection on me. It had been very easy for him to just kind of go. Well shit you know. This is that. And i'm just to crawl up in the house and die. You know now. I gotta go move out and blah blah blah and and do all that but no. He's like no. I'm gonna make him power decisions. I've got some things i've got to take on. Why because the world is watching. Your kids are watching the if anything you know. Don't do if your kids you got to do for you but but know that your kids are watching everything you're doing and so if you were playing this victim mind set. Your kids are watching that. And you're being an example of really bad father in my opinion Any any man. The acts like a victim is not good debt in my opinion I don't care what you save. Or will i take my kids to baseball all this stuff. Yeah but if you if you were a victim constantly you're teaching them that it's okay to be victim you're teaching them that it's okay To to live this way to live in shame into live in fear into limited regret and all those things or empowered. Men don't make excuses. They're not looking for someone to just validate their feelings and make everything okay and pat them on the but no they're looking for solutions and those solutions will take them out of victimhood and into empowerment. That's why we exist. That's why the empowerment exists to help men go from feeling loss. Little boys to empowered men was up rick rick's rick's cutout right now.

So i've got ten minutes to do this so probably only get this done in part one if you will There's really three different mindsets. They don't want attack in this a victim if you know. The drama triangle is basically the person who is always looking for Somebody to feel sorry for them. They're always looking for people to You know get on their side and blame the other people There's a lot of shame inside of victims And now there's a difference being the victim of abuse or a crime in someone who basically is victimized The the difference would be the mindset of how you approach this in so i wanna talk about three different ways that you could be projecting this in your own life Because i as i deal with a lot of men I see this both in to non-clients But the most successful guys. I deal with have learned that they are not victims of their circumstance. They're not victims will vote. They're going through that. They may have been victimized and they may have had things happen to them but that doesn't mean they have to live that out in that doesn't have to be the reality so the first victim mindset. I wanna talk about as the victim's view everything through the lens of defeat it means that everything they see happening around them. It's constantly a defeatist attitude. It's constantly like nothing's ever gonna make sense. I i won't win Talking to a couple of guys recently Who were their wives are just dead. Set on divorce and you know.

Aaron pomeroy it appeared. The event was well organized in the group may have had the props and the accessories previously staged. I'm not gonna say what those props are because this children the room right here. I'll just tell you it was genitalia related. It was huge. It was the biggest. I've ever seen right and i've been to a few burlesque shows myself. It was nothing like that stripper in miami. But that's for another story. The incident is still under investigation and detectives will look further into the group's actions intentions impossible targets within the city of richmond. Of course thank you very much. And that was sergeant. Erin pomeroy Mostly some of it was me. What i want to know is what happened to the giant vagina. Imagine it's at the local police station. They propped up in the office.

Tote and baba john did giovanni. Johnny did you. On age of thirty five he was arrested on two counts of attempted first degree murder of his clients according to the boca raton police. One of the clients said that he and his buddy were shot at by their barber. The previous evening they told detectives that did giovanni had scheduled some appointments to cut their hair but that he hadn't shown up over the past two weeks when one of the clients contacted did giovanni to confront him about you. Know why you accepting appointments bro. And not keeping appointments okay. Did you started yelling threatening them. Later that night the men asked de giovanni to meet them so they could discuss what was bothering them. Yeah we would like to discuss about. I had cuts year. The men told police that did giovanni told them to meet him at the first united methodist church however when did giovanni arrived. He started yelling from his vehicle. It doesn't say exactly what he was yelling. But i'm sure it was something like this. Say what are you talking to. Banning i make i keep appointments. We talking about i'm busy. I'm busy and then he pulled out a gun and fired three shots at these men before driving away. Luckily neither man was hurt but neither man also got a haircut. So that's just unproductive of a night you know. They were probably hoping they could talk some sense into him and then he would just give him a quick buzz in the parking lot of a church. Right maybe tip of the priests for using the property. Maybe that's what they thought was going to happen but it didn't. Nope did giovanni was pissed. Shot him ran away. Didn't shoot didn't hit them. they were. They weren't hurt thankfully. Well this is what happens when you get a pandemic and you can't really coordinate for your regular barbara. You gotta go.

Well we're going to really have to get into the details of the budding of the human dolphin relationship. He writes after sometime. I thought if this was a woman what i come up with these rationalizations and excuses malcolm insists that the dolphin dali became more and more aggressive in her pursuit of him. He said i found that extra extremely extraordinarily erotic. It's like being with a tiger or a bear. This is an animal that could kill you in two seconds if it wanted to then one night after the theme park had closed malcolm says he and dolly eluded the male dolphin so they could spend time alone and eventually had sex for the first time he explained. There's something quite transcendant about making love with dolphin quite transcendental. While bro you need to doctor you need dot many doctors for sure you need..

"Going to move forward and hopefully you want to join me in moving forward because A lot of times the reason they you know, they move on is because they're stuck with you and you're not doing anything you're living a half-ass life you come in here and you know it now and you're like man I was giving way under what I was supposed to be doing, you know, you weren't paying attention to her you weren't spending time with her. Maybe you were you know, you know into all kinds of other things and not really loving her the way you should love her and so all of those Bears effect on you. So today I want to talk about this idea that look when you first are faced with this situation you are feeling like you were in a fog you you were in a fog and you're trying to figure out where the heck am I at and and you're looking for a what I call an anchor you're looking for something to to to hold you in by home. And so when your wife first says I don't love you when you first find out about Affair when when she first says I want separation and when she first says I want a divorce all those things come at you and you're living your life and it's like wage. Boom, it's like when the planes hit the World Trade Center and all of that smoke is there and people are just lost and confused. That is trauma 101 where your body goes into a place. Literally you're buying your body your mind your spirit everything goes into a place and Trauma and shock and you don't know where you are. You don't know what's happening. The key thing is you have to find yourself out of that wage. There's a great there's a book written years ago and I can't remember the name of it. But they they describe the story of when when these rescue guys who work in helicopters and they they rescued Coast Guard. That's what is Coast Guard guys. And what happens is they have to jump out of helicopters into ocean and when they get into the ocean and there's like say somebody overboard they have a rating scale of zero to five or something like that where it looks at the person and and how conscious they are and it's like, you know zero is like no conscious like they're they're not breathing or anything all that's a v e Conscious alert and breathing and most of you when you when you come in here. It's like it's like you've been knocked out of your boat. You've been knocked out of what's going on. You have no goals. You have no vision. You have no Clarity. You have nothing and you are you were just trying to stay afloat. You were just trying to stay afloat. So I want you to look at this tool and what we're going to talk about today as the way for you to not just stay afloat. But to see with your eyes that hey there's help out there. There's there's there's some rescuing that can happen out there and at the same time what are the things I need to be doing to put myself in a position to not just get but to become an empowered man. And so that's we're going to talk about look you need a vision. You have to have a vision you cannot get to where you want to go to without a vision if you've ever worked out if you've ever lifted weights, if you've ever built a business if you've ever had anything that you've aspired to do you had to have a vision in order to create that wage. In order to make it happen and that vision is really determined by you. It's determined by how far you want to take it now in this context. I'm not expecting to just come up with a vision of your life five ten years from now where everything is great. And your wife is back with you and all those things. What I'm expecting you to do is to get very clear on what you want the next three to six months of your life to look like because these next three to six months are absofuckinglutly crucial to where you are going and where you want to be. Okay. Now there's this idea that that we think we are weak and that we are not strong and that we for some reason in this moment. We we lose who we are and so one of the very first things and this is this exercise is some of the things we take our clients through in our VIP program, but look one of the first things that we have them do is is this exercise And called the carry the hero the superhero character exercise. And that is this idea that I want you to be thinking about what superhero what character do you admire the movies the most some guys say Jason Bourne other guys say Bond James Bond other guys say William Wallace other guys say Gladiator the the captain from the Gladiator other guy's name that Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan. Okay other guys, like Superman other guys say Jesus other guys say right all these different types of characters and I want you to think about that character dead, you know get clear on that character right now. Think about who they are James Bond, right? How does he handle things? How does he handle life? How would he be in this situation? This might seem funny to you might even seem childish to you. But the first way to get a vision is to really get clear on what you value inside of you. So if you come to me and say hey, I'm like I'm home. Be like James Bond basically, right and you start thinking about how he responds to everything. He's calm his cool collected. You know, he always has a shit together and even though you don't feel like that right now, you can put on this character and be like, you know what this is how I want to show up right now. I want to show up like James Bond. I want to show up like Superman. I want to show up like like these guys have characters for multiple aspects of my life. I have a character for I want to show up in relationships with with my girlfriend with my ex-wife. I have I have characters I want to show up in business and the type of business guy wants me. So who I think about the most I know this is how I want to be and and this is I want to be like and I go okay, how would this person respond in this situation and what it does it gives me some click on where I want to go and how I want to live that. Okay. The next thing that you're going to want to do is I want you to think about and three to six months off. Do you want to be communicating with your wife think about that? How do you want to be communicating with your life? Do you want to have this toxic communication where you're always fighting with her way. You want to be yelling at her. Do you want to be constantly like using you know sarcasm and and indirect communication like how do you want to be communicating with her? It's super super important that you identify right. Now. How do I want to be communicating with her in the next 3 to 6 months? How do I want to show up to her in the way I communicate with? The next thing I want to look at is is what kind of boundaries do I feel like I need right now over these next three to six months. If I looked at my life six months from now, let's say I'm James Bond. How is James Bond setting boundaries in his marriage? How is James Bond communicating to his wife? See the reason you come up with that character is because that character reminds you of something in you that resonates with you deep down in the heart of your manhood that says I want to be like that man, but I don't feel like I am that man, but guys just because you don't feel like it doesn't mean you can't become that today. I'm a completely different man than I was two years ago five years ago ten years ago ship a year ago. I am a completely different man because I put on this character and and said, you know what I want to be a different man. I am not going to settle for what I have been. I am going to choose a vision that gives me something to Aspire to that says I have what it takes to become that wage. B I'm not perfect in it, maybe I'm not always James Bond or maybe I'm not always Jesus or maybe I'm not always that person but the fact is is I have a vision to become that in my marriage or in my life relationship and because as I put that character on I'm now not focusing on the fog of where I am. I'm not even focusing on what the fuck she's doing. I'm simply focusing on life who I am and what I am doing. Do you see the difference? Do you see the difference? There's a huge difference here because some of you are so fuking focused on her and her kids and what she's doing and how she's cheating and all his blah blah blah blah blah bullshit. You have lost yourself man. It is time to get your shit together. It is time to get your ass back in gear. It is time for you to stop focusing on her and to begin focusing on you. The next question the next thing I want you to think about is what does healing look like for you in the next three to six months. What is your healing Journey look like for you? How healed would you be in the next three to six months? Where will you be at with your healing? Will you still be a basket case where you still be crying all night? Will you still be yelling at your kids? Will you still be screaming at walls? And in the shower and whatever where will you be in your healing Journey? You must have a vision for that and I'm not saying that you know all along and and and you know say well six months from now, I'm not going to be crying about this anymore. Like maybe that's possible. Maybe it's not the fact is if you have to have a vision of what healing looks like For You killing for you might be just getting back on your career path. I can't tell you how many guys come to me and they want to help with their marriage but their finances are all out of whack. It's like dude. You're out of sequence birth. How to go fix your your your shed you can't you can't save something when part of the reason that person is leaving you is because they don't feel financially secure with you because you're not providing at a high level but not every case and that's not every situation. But for most guys that is a big part of it if you are barely making it and you're making excuses. She didn't work. She didn't do this. She didn't do shit blah blah blah. I make 12 bucks or whatever like there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong with hard work. But if you're not able to provide a high level you need to go work on that. You need to go get a side hustle. You need to go start a business you need to go do something that is able to provide for you and your children at a high level. That is leadership. My friend that is confidence because your wife is looking at that if she remembers you, you know, just make sure whatever thirteen fourteen bucks an hour and again, nothing wrong with making a basic living but if you're living under the standard of what you know as possible because most guys doing that are living under the standard of what they know. It's possible for them. That they're lazy ass motherfuckers. They like to play Call of Duty all night and not actually do the shit. They need to do some of you just gotta put that shit away. Go start a side hustle spend three hours a day doing that make money go do Uber go do whatever you got to do and then you can come in and we can fix the ship that's going on there. But if you don't work on those things, what are we doing? What are we doing this song about her? It's about you. We have to look internally and go what am I doing to contribute to the failure of the marriage the next thing what kind of relationship will you have with your kids in the next five or six months? What kind of relationship will you have with them? Are you going to be with them fifty-fifty? Are you going to be with them 100% of the time when you're with them? What are you doing with them? What kind of activities are you doing them? I want you to really think about that because some of you may not have them a hundred percent of the time. And the first time you let your kids go if you go on 50-50 the first time that happens it will fuck off. Up, if you're not ready for it because emotionally you have got to be strong guys. I can't tell you enough that even if you go through divorce, even if you go through separation with those kids are looking to their father for how strong he is and how he's going to show up. I'm not saying you don't show emotion. I'm not saying that you act like you got everything together and everything's fine. What I am saying though is that you are working on you and they will see that they will see the work you were doing they will see the investment you are making they will see the man the empowered man you were becoming because you were putting in the work and you're putting in the time then this takes work. This fucking takes work. A lot of you are used to doing work with your hands. This takes emotional heartfelt mental work. You have got to get mentally stronger. Some of you are weak as fuck when it comes to this. Like you can't hold shit up like yeah, you're great out there in the tractor your great plow and shit. You're great with your hands concrete. You're great on sales calls. You're great in a business meeting. But when it comes to this, you're falling apart talking to a guy recently on the big call center hundreds of employees whatever his wife wants to leave him and he's literally just falling apart two pieces and guess what? His business is falling apart as well. He is in pieces right now because he has no vision for who he wants to be he is so wrapped up in her and the decision. She's making an odd feeling sorry for himself gentleman in his time. It is time. It is time to stop feeling sorry for yourself. It is time to get your ass off your couch and stop feeling sorry for yourself. It is time to make forward movements and move into a new realm of what is possible for you because you and I cannot control what she does we can do things together. I can give you skills to communicate. I can help you set boundaries. I can do I can help you do a lot of things but at the end of the day she must choose to be married to you. And so many of you are in denial. So many of you are living at this in this world of like thinking that well if I just go work out or if I just buy better clothes or if I just wear cologne or if I just buy her flowers and do these things, but perhaps you'll want to come back to me. That's not how it fucking works. You have to create an adventure that she wants to join you in. And if she chooses not to live in that Adventure, you're going to be better. I tell every one of my guys of this is that not one man will fail in my program. If he does the work the only guys that have failed in my program are the guys who legitimately did not do the work sit. We have a hundred percent success rate when they do 100% of the work. That means they don't make excuses. They show up for their calls. They they extract value out of the program and they they live at a at a higher expectation of themselves. That's that's why we built this program. This program is not for every man because not every man is ready to engage at a level that calls you pulls you pushes you at a level never been pushed out before because I will hold your shit to the fire. And if you want to be around that if you want to be in that environment, you've got to have a visually I will not let you down my program unless you have.
