“You are one of the most intense people I know”

Bruce stared at me…

Our eyes locked…

I can recreate the moment and it happened thirty five years ago…

I denied it..

I resisted it..

Not for minutes but for years…

If you are reading this you and know me you may be laughing to yourself…

DUHHHHHH…… 

Today, I met with one of my favorite human beings..

Michael is an insightful and compassionate man..

A leader…

Successful at many levels..

I respect and admire Michael…

He is helping me with Realm and what is possible…

Toward the end of our meeting he looked at me and grinned….

What I heard was…

You are passionate…

Intense..

Realm.Men is intense…

Michael shared the colloquialism…

Our greatest strengths are our greatest weaknesses…

That moment my attention was on what Bruce shared thirty five years ago…

I returned home after the meeting and shared with Leslie. .

She laughed too…

In a very loving way..

Like Michaels elegant delivery..

Both masterful..

Message received..

Passionate and Intense..

CHECK ✅

The opposite of both words is apathetic..

My first response is: NO THANK YOU!

But sure I have also been apathetic..

Apathy does not help men become better men..

Apathy will not impact a thousand men in 2020…

That is the mission of Realm.Men.

Yes, I am passionate and intense..

I care…

I love humanity..

I needed someone to light my ass on fire..

To challenge my thinking…

My reasons…

My excuses…

My justifications…

Will Realm.Men be the flame that lights your ass on fire…

Challenging..

Your reasons…

Your excuses…

Your justifications..

Maybe..

I understand that there is a low flame and a high flame…

The magical message I received from Michael and Leslie this morning..

Scalpel or chainsaw..

A hug to lift someone up…

Or a punch in the gut to wake them up..

Each an effective tool, depending on the circumstances.

I have experienced both..

Receiving..

And..

The delivery…

How about you?

Are you using a chainsaw when a scalpel might be more effective..

Or would greater passion produce the desired outcome…

There can be a wake of problems that occur from using the wrong tool..

At the wrong time…

Suffering..

The problem is…

We don’t know what we don’t know until we have an awareness, and once we have an awareness we have a choice..

Personal development and coaching will elevate your awareness..

Expand your mind..

Your choices…

Your actions…

Your results…

Your impact…

Your reality…

Today Michael and Leslie used a scalpel but it felt like a chainsaw…

It will have a massive impact..

For me..

For everyone in our community..

And beyond..

Many men don’t have access to communities like Realm.Men…

Or the awareness they exist…

Or an understanding of why they are valuable..

Like me, they put their head in the sand and grind..

Push..

Try harder..

Turn up the volume..

Increase the intensity..

Hoping there will be a breakthrough..

That is where the overwhelm..

And exhaustion sets in…

What we don’t realize is the impact on our health, well being, relationships and our productivity…

Our purpose…

Or our legacy…

What are your greatest strengths?

How are they your greatest weakness?

And how are they impacting your life?
