How to be a confident man in a relationship
The mountain lion speaks to me because he’s the perfect metaphor for cool, calm, confident masculinity.
And he achieves this not by DOING anything in particular…he just IS.
This is what makes him so regal – so magnetic – so attractive.
It’s the mystery of his fierce energy and his quiet resolve. He’s focused and engaged while detached and relaxed at the same time.
He seems entirely self-satisfied and unrattled by drama.
They say “the lion doesn’t turn around when the small dog barks”.
And a Nigerian proverb says “The roaring lion kills no prey.” He doesn’t over-react. He speaks less and listens more. He responds calmly and does only what is needed.
What is the opposite of the mountain lion?
You guessed it.
Here’s my annual summer video from the hummingbird feeder to explain more.
How do you become naturally confident and attractive like a mountain lion?
First of all you have to become aware of what is NOT natural.
It is NOT natural for you to be in a state of anxiety, fear or defensiveness.
It is NOT natural for you to feel out of control and uncertain.
Sure, those natural emotions we may experience from time to time.
But they are NOT meant to be your default mode. Once you recognize yourself in those states, you can choose to change.
What do you BELIEVE to be your natural default mode?
I believe your natural state is well-being. Your default mode is self-confidence and clarity of purpose. It’s a state of being OKAY at any given moment.
What if you believed that too?
You and I weren’t born mountain lions, but we can simply decide that is who we are meant to be and who we SHALL be.
You are who you say you are.
What have you been telling yourself lately about who you are?
Seriously, answer that. Go to the contact form and tell me what you’ve been thinking about yourself. Then tell me what you would rather be thinking.
This is one of many examples of challenges and exercises we explore in coaching.
And when you do this with other smart men like yourself, you start seeing things you’ve never seen. You feel shifts you’ve never felt.
And you accelerate down a path of transformation so powerful there ain’t no going back. Why? Because you can never “unsee or unlearn” what you’ve learned when your brain flips a switch.
In the Men’s Live Coaching Roundtable we run there are many men just like you, wanting to transform themselves and their relationships into something more connected, more passionate, more loving and where they can truly live to their potential.
This is where you will see and learn things your dad never told you.
It’s where switches in your brain flip so fast and so hard you will know there is no going back to your old way of thinking or being. That’s a promise.
How do you stay calm and confident even when you’re in the middle of rejection or a conflict?
That’s what we help guys understand and start living here at Goodguys2Greatmen. That’s our passion.
The problem most of us have is that we have no men in our lives to talk to about this who get it, have been through it and come out the other side. We’ve got nobody we can trust to give us clear feedback and positive support and guidance.
The very FASTEST way to change the way you’re thinking and find your confidence again is to join other men doing the same thing.
Come and join us and start creating a whole new reality for yourself:
