So many men today are living two lives.

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...

It's  a beautiful afternoon as I sit awaiting my 2PM appointment.

My phone vibrates and I glance down:

SORRY RUNNING 15 MIN BEHIND

No big deal as I am enjoying watching the parade of exotic cars being valeted at this prestigious hotel.

The lounge is hopping with international travellers kicking back, or planning their next excursion and business meetings...Hey wait! Is that Rianna?

Hey, There's Mark Wahlberg! Wow! He's shorter than I thought.

Not surprising, many of Hollywood's royalty stay here when they visit or shoot movies.

I then feel a hand on my shoulder from behind,

"Dwayne! I'm sorry for keeping you waiting."

John (Not his real name) was breathless as he came around and sat in the over stuffed chair across from me.

John is a very accomplished business owner and is having the most imp...

In this Mojo Minute Video Blog I answer a question many guys are dealing with.

It is a very common challenge. A lot of guys do this. They think that by putting 100% into the relationship and letting go of the things that he enjoys that she somehow thinks this is noble and right.

You'd be wrong. Sure she loves the attention and the commitment you are making to the relationship but she's not wanting you to sacrifice your manliness that attracted you to her in the first place!

She wants to go out with her friends and for a lot of women this is a "Non Negotiable" item. It's important to her! 

Yet this brings up all kinds insecurities within him. He does not have enough inner strength and created enough trust with his authentic masculine power that he becomes jealous every time she goes out.

"Yes Dear."

"No, you pick the movie Sweetie." 

"What ever restaurant you want Hon I'm fine with that."
"No, I'll stay home and be with you...the guys can go on without me."

If this sounds like you in your relationship or in your dating world you might as well be saying,

"Hey, please Baby..I need your approval and attention. I'll do anything to please YOU… if you’ll just give me your time, attention and approval."

Yuck!! I think I threw up in my mouth a little. I'm sure there's a few ladies feeling like that too!

There's a growing trend occurring and I'm seeing it more and more in my coaching practice, from my peers and from the feedback I get from my followers and fans. Too many men are playing small!

Playing small can show up in a number of ways. He can appear to be a wuss, a wimp, weak and need...

 So, You are in a relationship or you're a few dates in to something good.

 

Everything's going great!

 

The sex is great, you spoil her with fun events, your wit and charm. You seem to have a lot going on and all seems great!

 

Or is it?

 

Let me share an example for you. 

 

From most perspectives this couple I know is the epitome of the perfect power couple. They are both ridiculously good looking and have everything anyone could ever want in life.

 

Yes, they have the dream house, the beach house, the cars and three awesome kids too!

 

This is the kind of relationship most people brag about or aspire to.

 

Individually, he's on fire and has been a successful business owner for a number of years. His family is well respected and he's known as a no-nonsense, get-it-done kin...

I had an interesting dilemma put forth to me by a client that has been in a new relationship for about two months. 

 

She is all he's ever wanted: she's cute, she's fun, she's got quirky sense of humour and she's got a penchant for the unpredictable. One of those things just happens to be kissing passionately any time, any where. She loves PDA - public displays of affection.

 

For most guys this sounds like a great scenario to be in. I mean, Damn! That's kinda hot!

But this is not his reality nor his brand of PDA because he is more reserved. He loves the passion between them but as long as it is at home or somewhere private.

 

He is having a hard time with telling her that it's not appropriate at restaurants, gatherings with friends or out in public where people could be offended.

 

He ad...

Overheard In The Coffee Shop Today:

 

Late 30's couple leaving the coffee shop. Just before they get to the door a well dressed man walks in holding the door open for both of them.

 

She smiles broadly and says loudly, "Thank you so much! It's great to know there are a few gentlemen still left in this world!" 

 

As they leave I can feel the tension instantly build between them. As The door closed I could hear his muffled response,

 

"What the hell was that all about?" 

 

I could not hear the rest of the conversation but they argued on the street in front of the car for at least 5 minutes before they got in. No, he did not open her door.

 

With the work I do as "TheCoachForMen I always find myself observing men, women and couples as they interact.

 

Viewing these two...I immediately thought about emascu...

Valentine's Day, That day when you celebrate all is right in your world and the your love springs eternal.

 

It's a day of reminding yourself and showing her just how important your lover is to you.

 

However, It's not always the Hallmark Card moment people want it to be. In fact, the week leading up to Valentine's Day is when the largest amount of relationship break-ups occure.

 

It appears to be a bell-weather or marker for how successful the relationship is really going.

 

I was and always will be a romantic. When I am in the relationship I do tend to give a lot on Valentine's Day. It's a great celebration of our commitment, passion, intimacy and friendship for each other. However, I also recall times when I put expectations and conditions on my romantic outpouring.

 

The gifts, dinners and thoug...

Oh You Say You Want To Change…But Do You Really?

 

What are you doing on a consistent basis to develop the Remarkable Man you want to be and to make it a priority?

 

Regardless if it's in your relationship with your spouse, children, business partners or colleagues. Perhaps it's lifestyle, success and getting to the top. What ever it is, If you keep waiting for others to change in order for you to get your life rock'n, you may be waiting a very long time.

 

Long enough for resentment, stagnation and frustration to build up. Yeah that's the spot! Right there! Ouch! We've all been there!

 

The truth is, you have to suck it up and "BE" the change you want to experience in your life.

The Remarkable Man mindset is about being the highest best version of yourself and taking full responsibility for where...

We are half way through The Biggest Outdoor Show On Earth. Also known as the Calgary Stampede. For those of you that have never heard of it or have never experienced it...it is truly something to behold. 

 

When I was a newbie to the Stampede many years ago, I thought it would be just like any other annual civic event. You know...an area of the city that has a dedicated fairground and event area where the festival takes place. Boy was I wrong!

 

Calgary...and I mean the whole city of over a million...turns into a ten-day party of celebration, excess and hedonism all wrapped up in a country and western theme.

 

Sure there's the world's largest rodeo and the city does a great job in promoting it as a family friendly event, but if you've been here you soon realise that the real event(s) are wh...
