 131 - Arthur Forrester : breaking free from past beliefs to determine what's important | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 45:24

I couldn't be more proud and honored to be joined by this week's guest! He asked if he could join me to share his story and how things have changed. Both within himself and his relationship with his dad, where there was a non-existent father/son relationship before. You may have guessed - yes, this is my son, Arthur Forrester. . You'll hear Arthur talk about how he tried to become invisible to avoid the authoritarian homelife. Then years later, he was faced with determining why he was still holding onto feelings from the past when the people and environment changed. We, as fathers, set the relationship dynamic with our children at a young age. Still, as they grow up, they're left to determine how to address their emotions and thoughts about their past. .

 128 - Mark Savant : choosing to be an awesome dad | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 47:12

I'm joined this week by Mark Savant, host of multiple podcasts, podcast production agency owner, a husband and father. We talk about how many people live for the weekend, looking forward to Friday and dreading Monday for that return to work. The unhappiness and fulfillment, scared of being replaced by someone younger who was coming for his job. Mark was able to replace that mindset and say thank God it's Monday as he discovered what he enjoyed and then focused on creating a business within that space. Mark shares how learning he would be a dad lit a fire under him, and the changes that came about from it. HIs desire to be a great dad then set him on a path to creating the Awesome Dad Podcast and community. Mark spoke on learning how to hear advice from multiple sources to determine what guidance you would apply and be helpful to you that we each have our unique path for growth, habits and ultimately our success.

 125 - Chis Comer : if I didn't do this, what would I do? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 51:26

Many of us have hit that crossroad, wondering what I would do if I didn't do this. Whether it comes from not feeling like you have any other options because of limited skills or because you believe you couldn't replace your income, it can leave you trapped. For example, this week, my friend and guest, Chris Comer, asked this question as an automotive restoration business owner. Some problematic situations left him feeling like he couldn't catch a break. Going through those trying times gave Chris first-hand knowledge on how to help people to improve their finances by strengthening their marriage. As a marriage and finance coach, Chris is uniquely gifted to speak hope to couples facing their own difficult times. Join us to hear how Chris is preparing to work with New York Times multiple best-selling author Andy Andrews to guide people through life-changing lessons.

 122 - Danny Miranda : when you begin to love yourself, your external world will reflect it | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 41:18

I'm excited to be joined by Danny Miranda. A writer, creator and fellow podcaster, he hosts The Danny Miranda Podcast. We talk about even coming from a childhood with good parents and grandparents he has struggled with depression and self-worth. We can face those challenges even from the best of situations, but he worked on himself to discover courage and confidence. Danny began an exercise of writing "I love myself" one hundred times each day. After only eight days into this practice, he had Gary Vaynerchuck share one of his stories on Instagram. More importantly, he became less concerned with rejection, felt less tied to other people's perspectives of him and was overall happier in his life. Sometimes as we hear these stories we'll say, but I could never believe it when I say I love myself. Join us to see how Danny first felt as be started this habit.

 119 - Julian Sarafian : quitting my job for my mental health | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 34:09

Julian Sarafian was a high achiever, and from the outside, his life looked terrific. He graduated from Harvard Law and was a corporate lawyer. On the inside, though, things were very different. He struggled with gagging and stomach aches; even the doctors told him everything appeared fine. But, after tons of medical tests, he was no closer to an answer for these physical symptoms. As the pandemic continued, being isolated while working from home, without boundaries at work and the collective trauma, he found his anxiety morphing into depression and eventually into fleeting suicidal ideation. Enough was enough – he knew he had to address this for his own well-being and pursued looking into his own mental health. He got to the point of realizing it was either having his mental health continue to suffer or leaving his career. Julian stepped into the uncertain future, quitting his job for his mental health. He now advocates for mental health so others don’t find themselves in the same situation.

 117 - why you should be kind to yourself | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 11:18

For many of us, being cruel to ourselves comes easy. We say or think mean and hurtful things, stuff we wouldn't consider saying to someone else, yet it's okay when it's directed at ourselves. So I would encourage you to be kind to yourself, say and think the things you wish someone would say to you and speak the encouraging and positive things you want to be true about us. While it won't change completely overnight, give it a try, so how you feel and if things around you change.

 116 - Robbie Harvey : how doing his best to be a better man changed his marriage | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 50:19

This week I’m joined by Robbie Harvey, a "former bad husband," as he calls himself, who now helps other men see their blind spots in how they’re treating their wives. His desire to have men see that we can be cruel and insensitive in how we treat our wives when we’re focused solely on ourselves. Like many of us, Robbie wasn’t shown how to be a father, a husband, or a good man. His wife came into their marriage expecting to be divorced. A story with which many wives can easily relate. Robbie shares that he didn’t see how hurtful he was being when he was a former bad husband. As he began to work on doing his best to become a better man, his eyes opened to the hurt he was causing his wife and the damage being inflicted upon his marriage. Robbie encourages us that it doesn’t have to remain this way, that there is a better way and you can bring healing to your marriage. Listen to this chat with Robbie Harvey on the Living Fearless Today podcast as we learn to take a no-excuses approach to being a man and having a solid marriage.

 113 - Christian de la Huerta : a heroic journey to face down self-doubt and fears | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 53:14

We can find ourselves who am I, what am I here for and what is life about? My guest this week faced those questions at a young age and chose the more challenging yet rewarding path of working through them. Christian de la Huerta immigrated to the US as a young child from Cuba. He and his family were ridiculed and ostracized while still living in Cuba for requesting their visa to leave. Upon arriving in Georgia, he stood out because he hadn't yet begun to speak English. As he learned English with a deep Southern accent, he found his family moving to Miami, where he was again left feeling out of place. . In our conversation, Christian talks about his journey of being an outsider, then finding himself within the inner circle, only to realize something was still off - something within him. For over 30 years now, Christian has been speaking, coaching and hosting retreats to help others claim their own healing. We also chat about breathwork, how our healing as men creates an environment for others to excel and how we have the power to change our legacy to one of healing and wholeness. .

 111 - challenge yourself to be better | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 14:28

We have two choices - to remain where we are or to step forward into being a better you. Obviously staying where and how we are is the easier and more comfortable choice, at least at this moment. Yet, in the long run, it robs us of living and enjoying life, in the end, we're wracked by regret for playing small. Decide today to instead challenge yourself to be better, not to stay stuck in the rut of your current life. Flip the script, rise to the challenge and change your life! What we often forget is that this doesn't impact just our life, but also the lives of our children and grandchildren. You have the opportunity to be the man you've desired to become AND to give the gift of a better life to your family.

 110 - Rusty Gaillard : how to enjoy life | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 41:14

Rusty Gaillard, an author and executive coach, joins me this week as we talk about how we can stand in our own way, impeding the progress that we so desperately desire. The great news is that it doesn't have to be this way. As Rusty shares his own story of becoming clear on his priorities, making the decision to step down as the director of finance at Apple to gain balance in his life. Rusty talks about not allowing fear to control our decisions and being comfortable in the discomfort our decisions and actions can create as we transition. He reflected on how things didn't go the best in making the role change, but he did the best with who he was at that time and his ability. That's all any of us should be looking for from ourselves. We will only grow from being stretched and that certainly won't always be done through perfect situations.
