Each week were going to look at different key elements of a Man's Journey - Starting in week 1 with asking and answering the question 'Who am I?' I'm going to be encouraging you to ask and answer - The question of your own identity.

 

 

In week 2 we’ll ask and seek to answer the question; ‘Where do I fit?’ Which career path suits my distinct skill set, my individual gifting? What kind of relationships should I build both intimately and socially? How will I build a life for me that has meaning to me?

Week 3 we’ll get into survival.

As you can see by now, in this process of establishing our unique identity and coming to our own conclusions we’ve well and truly upset the status quo and toppled the apple cart,

Have you ever heard someone say they are trying to find themselves? It’s a complex statement - to some degree, considering if you’re struggling to locate your own whereabouts, you’re unlikely to get asked to find ‘the needle in the proverbial haystack’ when they’re recruiting for that role.

 

I guess that’s the rub (on a more serious note) - intrinsic to becoming aware that something is fundamentally missing, is the realisation that all else is on hold until basic self-discovery is mastered.

 

I mean who wants to date someone who has no self-awareness, who wants to hang out with an ignorant motherfucker. And when you become aware that particular morning that it’s you that’s lost, it’s natural to put other issues on hold until as an individual you find a grounding to lay a foundation from which to erect an edifice that you can stand back from and be proud of...

Finding Yourself!

Who Am I?

What Are My Values?

Who am ‘I’? is a question each of us should approach from two angles; initially from a perspective of self-discovery, taking inventory of our unique personality traits – likes dislikes, passions, motivators, wants, hopes, dreams and aspirations. And other unique characteristics that make up the finger print of our individual soul. And then from the angle of defining yourself; What do you want to be? – What do you want as your legacy? What if you past from the land of the living to the great beyond could you reflect back on with a sense of pride and achievement and say ‘I’ did that?

In order to define yourself a level of internal fortitude needs to be mustered. You’ll need to take ownership of the piece of real estate that by default falls to your care, the physical circumference of which belongs entirely to you – your own body. Your body like any other vehicle is only of use when possessed by a person with the initiative to take it some place. That person, that someone in this case is you. You in fact are not a body but you are a soul, your unique personality is beyond your physical body. A personality is made up of a mind and a heart. Not a brain or the heart that pumps the blood. But the mind with which you think, and the heart with which you feel. Also known as your conscious and subconscious...

What on earth are values; We know we have them but identifying and defining them can be complicated.

 

Key to answering the question on a personal level; ‘What are my values?’ Is identifying what it is you as an individual place value upon. You may place value on food, style, relationships, travel, education, art, pets. I don’t know, I am not in a position to identify it for you.

   

Sometimes in order to identify a value you need to peer beyond the thing, to see the cause not the effect. For example, you may spend all your spare moments, and maybe some not so spare moments gaming, and initially you may think clearly you place a value on gaming. So the temptation is to stick the label on that and there you go we have identified our first value. Right – wrong. Different people will participate in a given activity for quite divergent reasons. So one person’s reason for gaming all the time may be to escape, too exist in a virtual dimension where their imagination can soar. Another person likes the complexity of overcoming obstacles and finding solutions and climbing through the stages. Another person may be drawn to the graphics the art and design and aesthetics...

I would like to introduce to you Omar Zac Phillips Founder of The Idea Of A Man. Omar has been my client for many years and has finally taken the leap and has launched he's brand to the marketplace and the world.

Where Do I Fit?

Give yourself the gift of acceptance! Look at yourself in the mirror and say dude/dudette I accept you, unconditionally and unreservedly; don’t wait for anyone else to do it for you or to you, do it too and for yourself, look yourself in the eye when you say it and mean it.

 

Some people have never had a relationship where this has been given to them from another human being and as a result you could exist without being aware that unconditional unreserved acceptance is something that you are lacking in your life.

 

Why is it a lack to not have these ingredients in your life? Well we’re all striving for acceptance, approval, love, respect etcetera. Whether it be for economic benefit, for companionship, love, sex or simply so you’re not left out in the cold lonely world on your lonesome, having to maintain your own company and put up a good show all the while being all too aware that it’s just the three of us the original trio – ‘me’, ‘myself’ and ‘I’ going home for coffee tonight...

We all have day dreams and imagine ourselves far away from u normal lives living another life doing what we desire to do. Then we wake up from our day dreams and quickly realize that it was all a dream. For some that realization that our dreams may just be just that dreams and that we may not have the time, resources and tools we need to achieve our dreams and turn them into reality can leave us somewhat lost in hopelessness.

Poor Alice! It was as much as she could do, lying down on one side, to

Make life worth living

In week 4 we’ll be looking at recreation, because all work and no play makes jack a dull boy. And we’ll also explore meaningful recreation, recreation that is an investment into your vocation. As well as the bona fide activity of simply - goofing off.

In week 5 we’ll get down to business and look at some practical ways we can fund this enterprise which is our lives.

We’ll tackle important mind-sets that need to be adopted in order to succeed and mind-sets we need to lose

 

In week 6 we get into the prickly issue of Finance.

We’ll ascertain how to evaluate our finances, and we’ll don gloves to tackle the area of debt!  Work gloves to start breaking ceilings that want to limit our financial potential.

Seeking to address the crisis we see in the lives of men, Omar Zac Phillips begins this discourse by tackling the issue of identity and goes to the core.

If in fact we are divine how should we then live?

What does it look like to live our lives with the dignity and responsibility that this perspective gives us?

The perspective Omar brings is insightful and motivational and lays a foundation for future discourse where we'll get in to practical matters such as relationships and finance etc. For now let's get clear on who we are and answer the question; 'What did you come as?' ...

FRIENDSHIP

In week 7 we’ll look at friendship and ask what Is a friend – to a man!

 

Is it possible there are differences between male and female friendship, and what men want out of a friend?

 

LIFE PARTNERS

In week 8 we’ll 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.

FAMILY

Then we’ll look in week 9 at the family. Your current situation might not be that great, there are mixed and blended, separated and ended family settings. Or perhaps you feel you’re happily flying on all cylinders.

SPIRITUALITY

By Week 10 we’ll be getting into double digits. So let’s switch gears as were getting into these higher numbers, let’s tackle the lofty matter of a man’s spirituality.

 

Practical Spirituality of course!

 

MIND & HEART

In Week 11 we enter the area of mind and heart. This is about how to invest in the other apparently ethereal area of our lives our souls.

We are each of us triune entities. Identities made up of three parts. We are Spirits, Souls and Bodies.

 

HEALTH & FITNESS

Then we’ll conclude with week 12, and here you’ve guessed it we get into the third component of the trinity that makes up us; The Body!!
