‘The Idea of a Man project’ is birthed out of the pain of – ‘imposed definitions’!, Birthed out of the question; ‘Am I man enough?’, surficial, - cookie cutter, - One size fits all answers aren't going to help. The Key Question is 'What's Your Idea of a Man? - It's Time to come to your own conclusions... It's can be dangerous coming to your own conclusions! - Not many people are encouraging you to 'Come to your own Conclusions!!'
So let's get down to business with practical ways to fund our lives. We're going to tackle mind-sets, limited belief systems, and breaking glass ceilings, we'll resolve issues that are holding us back, preventing us from realising our full potential.
We’ll evaluate our finances, and we’ll don gloves to tackle the area of debt! Work gloves to break glass ceilings that limit our financial potential. Boxing gloves to go to war on drives and impulses that keep us stuck in cycles of lack and limitation, and rubber gloves to do surgery to remove the trauma caused by poverty and lack.
Because all work and no play makes jack a dull boy, we’ll explore meaningful recreation. Recreation that is an investment into our vocation. As well as the bona fide activity of - goofing off. How do you Re-Create yourself, charge your internal batteries, hit your refresh button and give yourself a reason to expend the energy and effort required by living a productive life.
Let's explore the area of life partnership. Marriages - lovers - girl and boy friends. We’ll explore common issues experienced by us all. The need to re-ignite passion, because love is never going to work as a simply intellectual exercise. We’ll get into the imperative area of relational communication and ultimately being that guy; the kind of lover you want to be.
There are mixed and blended, separated and ended family settings. How do you 10x your family to maximise the lives of all involved. Where do you fit in your family dynamic as the unique individual you’re discovering yourself to be? We frequently find ourselves irrelevant to the details of the lives our loved one’s lead. How do we take the authentic version of ourselves and have the greatest impact where it matters most? How do we create an environment where we and they can thrive, not just survive?
What Is a friend – to a man? Is it possible there are differences between male and female friendship? And what is it men want out of a friendship? Where are the individuals who accept and respect us for who we are – people who give a damn – and respects healthy boundaries. We’ll explore differentiating between friends and associates, and the concept of circles to identify who should be in your inner circle, and eliminate toxic relationships and change your friends.
let’s switch gears and tackle Practical Spirituality. The question here is, - Whatever your take, what’s the take home? So we’ll look at; Mindfulness; how do we become conscious of unconscious processes, become self-aware, and mine hidden treasure of our sub-conscious. Hack our behaviour and develop fully actualised versions of us. How do you Find Meaning? or cope with Bereavement, and your own Fallibility. Is midlife crisis’s compulsory? Or is it a reaction to not living an integrated/authentic existence.
We are triune entities; Spirit, Soul and Body. We’ll explore feeding our souls. Your soul; your mind, heart and will, requires feeding and expression. Feeding the soul consists of the things you choose to stimulate your mind with; books you read, thought leaders to whom you subscribe. Stuff you watch, and company you keep. Consciousness enables you to live authentically and express yourself more effectively. It changes the way you interact with other souls, how you show up and what you contribute at the table of life.
As integrated biopsychosocial persons, every area of our life is effected by the condition of our physical health; how we feel, how we look, and how we feel about how we look. There is our unique medical history. Any disabilities, inherent weaknesses, limitations of our DNA, which will affect us all in different ways. It’s important not to compare yourself against other's, but against your own potential. The potential your measuring yourself against is Your unique Idea of a man.
