Could you potentially be sitting on a reservoir of shame, or guilt, or regret?

Do you tend to resist changing to meet the demands of the world around you?

Do you feel deeply connected to your authentic power in all domains of life?

As men, we often face a variety of challenges when it comes to embracing our authentic power and purpose. We may struggle with shame, regret, and guilt from past experiences, or find ourselves resisting change to meet the demands of the world around us. But true power comes from standing in our own beliefs and connecting deeply with our authentic selves.

In this Episode, we explore the journey towards owning our personal power as men. We’ll hear from Johnny Elsasser, a former special US army Ranger and The author of  “Design the man within”. We’ll also discuss the role of masculine power in today’s world, and how to use it in a way that garners respect rather than disdain.

We’ll dive deep into the three horsemen of death – shame, guilt, and regret – and explore strategies for overcoming these obstacles to true empowerment. We’ll also examine the importance of letting go of the past and embracing the present moment in order to move forward towards a brighter future.
