Have you ever been in that place, mentally, physically or emotionally?
That Stressed out or mentally and physically burned out place?
Maybe you’re in a struggle right now with both of these.
I speak to so many guys at business events or online who tell me they’re struggling right now and don’t know what to do, so they just keep trying to plow on, head down and ‘Get On With It’.
Or they have been broken and have started to put themselves back together again.
To be fair you could also be in a place of feeling stressed out, lost and overwhelmed but you’re not on your knees…But perhaps you’re just struggling with clarity, direction, energy or confidence because of it.
The issue I’m bringing up here is that at some point in time we are all going through, will go through it it or have gone through stressed, burn out, anxiety and maybe even depression.
I’ve been there myself.
I’ve been so stressed out I was lashing out. Taking my anger and frustration out on my fiancee.
I was in that place where all I wanted to do was discover what the hell I was doing and where I was going with my life…Sounds so simple right?
Probably one of the hardest things I ever had to do because I was looking in all the wrong places. It’s almost like you can see the signs, the lack of sleep, the anxiety, the stress, the anger, the frustration, the delusion…BUT it’s hard to pull yourself out of it.
I was always thinking that “When I get this, or make this much money, or get here in business…Everything else will take care of it’s self”
How WRONG I WAS.
It just didn’t matter what I did, I couldn’t figure it out.
And because of this, everything else I looked at in my life wasn’t up to standard…My own perspective on the situation.
I would look at other parts of my life and recent them. I even resented the success of my fiance whose career was taking off whilst I was stuck.
I was becoming bitter under the surface whilst smiling on the outside.
And you know what?
I look back now and I’m like, who the hell was that guy?
I can say I have come out the other side of this, but it was no miracle cure. It wasn’t like I read one book or took one course and BOOM my life transformed.
I did 2 years of solid soul searching and self-discovery.
I did 2 years of serious self-development.
I did 2 years of getting to know me, all my insecurities, self doubts, fears, judgements, emotions, self awareness…As well as all the things in my life that are great, my success, my achievements, what makes me happy.
I just worked on me.
Now I don’t think it takes that for everyone, some people it can take a few months, some people a life time and I guess everyone else in the middle.
This is why YOUR Journey is your journey and no one else can say…
HERE, I can fix you in 5 steps.
I always smell BS, and I bet you do too!
What it does take to start is awareness of the problem, or awareness that you even have a challenge.
Being aware that you are stressed, struggling and maybe even burned out.
After awareness, it’s clarity.
This is why I put my Man-Unleashed together in the first place.
I wanted to create a place, a program and a coaching environment where men could go and develop who we are, in a non judgemental space.
I know what it’s like, I struggled to be open and honest round others. We see it as a sign of weakness, right?
However, it’s actually a sign of strength. To say you are struggling, to be honest and open and ask for a little help…IS STRONG.
To be your true and authentic self and put that person in life…IS STRENGTH.
So I’ve created a program that can enable men to be open about their struggles, get clear on who they want to become and then map out a way of getting there…
WHILST being their true selves.
I work with men because I have been ‘that’ guy, the guy who on the outside looks like he had it together but on the inside was crumbling.
I got myself together, and I’m still working on who I am…I eventually found my voice and the self confidence to put it out there, so helping other guys to do the same.
So these men can show up to each part of their life and live life as the very best version of themselves. Be the best farther, husband, friend, manager, boss, colleague, leader they can be.
