Talking points: potential, growth, mindset

We all have images of who and what we’re capable of. Flashes of motivation and inspiration based on what we know deep, deep down to be true of us.

Getting from images to reality, from dreams to concrete fact, is the battle. The best one you’ll ever fight. The following are simple (but not easy) steps based on years of work with men, endless hours of study, and mentorship with some amazing people.
