In today's edition of Your Mojo Minute we'll dive into a truth most people have a hard time accepting.
If you are dealing with conflict, resentment and frustration with how some people are showing up in your life... there's a reason. Most people do not realize that how people show up in their life represents a mirror about how YOU are showing up.
For many, this is not an easy concept to wrap one's head around. We are all mirrors of one another.
We all reflect back an aspect of our personality. Be it good, bad or ugly.
Whatever you don't like about how someone is showing up for you...It's a reminder that there's that part of your within as well.
Clean that up and you'll find people will mirror that back to you.
The one where they have success, status and accomplishment, and then there's the one where they are literally bankrupt in every other area of their lives.
I have met so many successful men that have everything anyone could possibly want.
They have the homes, the cars, the vacations and the parties that prove that the good life is a reality for so many.
Yet behind the smiles, the clinking of the glasses and the fat bank account lies the truth.
Many are about to go through a divorce, they are having affairs, they don't see their kids, or their kid(s) are in trouble. They have very few "real" friends and they live in a facade that's hard to maintain.
Alcohol, drugs, pharmaceuticals and sex are the addictions and distractions many are dealing with behind the m...
Yesterday a father in his mid 40's and his 18 year old son were arrested for senselessly beating an innocent man in a ridiculous case of road rage.
After pretty much forcing a man's work van off the road and then dragging him out of his van, they proceeded to beat him until witnesses intervened. It could have been much worse.
They still couldn't get the reason for the attack.
The cowards fled and were later picked up by police at their home.
My question is: What place does a man have to come from where he shows his son this is how it's done?
What major malfunction does this kid already have engrained in his head about life as he starts his journey as a man in this world? I can't imagine the environment and head space in which these two men exist in.
It's a Wednesday night and you're fresh from a coffee date that you feel went pretty good. She laughed at your weak impression of Elvis, she shared her back-story without boring you and what was to be an hour meeting became two.
When it was time to say goodbye out on the street you warmly hugged and agreed you'd both like to see each other again.
So now you sit on the couch with the phone in your hand staring at her number you have on speed dial.
There's a pang of anxiety that hits as you press "Dial"...It rings...and rings...Damn! It's voice mail. You hear her pleasant voice on the recorded message and it takes you back to seeing her across the table. You smile. Then you hear the tone as your mind scrambles for something clever and witty to say.
In this video I talk about how important it is to love yourself first before you seek love from someone else. We have all been in a situation where we believe that the love of another will make everything right in our world.
The truth is, we can not give someone anything unless it is a part of who we are. If you can not love yourself, how can you expect to love another?
For a lot of guys, being in a group, community or having a coach is way outside their comfort zone.
We've got this lone-wolf thing down pretty good.
Sure, we get together with our buds and shoot the shit, have some laughs, maybe watch a game at the pub and check out the talent that just walked in. But aside from that our lives are pretty insular for the most part.
However, most guys would tell you that they want something more. What that is may surprise you. Men want to have realconverstations with the men in thier lives.
In other words, men want to get real!
It's true! They want to talk and share about what is truly going on with them!
Guys want to share and express what's going on with them!?
