WHAT IS A REAL MAN?
It is truly sad to say but we could ask that question of 1000 different people over the last three generations and not get one solidified or unified and consistent answer. I am not sure there has been an answer to that question which pleases everyone for centuries or more. Some would say a professional athlete is the model of a “real man”.
Someone who works hard and plays hard. Someone driven by on the field success and outward expressions of testosterone. Someone who is Intense, extroverted, in control and powerful. Others would say a “real man” is financially successful and who provides for his family better than the previous generation provided for him.
Someone who is educated and street smart. Someone who knows the ways of the world so to speak and knows how to win at all costs. Others would say a “real man” knows how to stand his ground. Someone who knows what he believes and never backs down from it. Someone always running to the defense and aid of others at all cost even the peril of his own life. Someone tough, gruff, filled with grit and vigor. A soldier, a firefighter or a cop might fall in this category of man. So would a gang leader, a drug lord or a pimp.
Some would say a “real man” is a sexy lover. A man who has women falling at his feet over his chiseled features and smooth way. Seduction is his game and he always wins.
Finally, some would say a “real man” is a gentlemen. Quiet, humble, emotionally sensitive mark his nature and his demeanor. He never offends anyone. He never stirs up trouble or controversy. He is always humble and kind. Gentle as a butterfly. Now you can see why young boys are struggling to become men.
NO ONE KNOWS WHAT ONE IS!!

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
