Should You Divorce Or Try To Stay Married?

The Crossroads: Salvaging Your Marriage or Making the Tough Call To End It
Here at Goodguys2Greatmen we help you face the current reality of your marriage. Not the fluffy movie or social media version, but the gritty, down-and-dirty truth about the pain and confusion you’re facing and the options you have to move forward.

We guide men through the minefield of either leading the reconnection and growth of your relationship or ending it with good intentions for everyone. We are experts in helping you identify what you want, whether that is possible in your current relationship and supporting you to confidently navigate the tough decisions along the way.

Reclaiming Your Strength and Purpose
Standing at the crossroads of potential divorce can be like riding and endless emotional rollercoaster. Whether you choose to rebuild or navigate through divorce, you’ll need something powerful you can rely on to support you and guide you. We work with men in this situation every day of the year, and one thing that sounds counterintuitive but is essential during this period in your life is a commitment to yourself to use this time to reignite your self confidence, get a powerful vision of your future, and start becoming the man you truly want to be.

Rebuilding Your Self Confidence
If you choose to rebuild your marriage, it’s not just the relationship that needs work. It will require that your self confidence needs a boost too. Our coaching identifies the areas where you feel insecure and helps you develop strategies to build your mojo and confidence again. We work with you to define who you want to be as a man, set some intentional personal goals, start taking action, and reclaim your sense of power within your life and the relationship.

A stronger, more confident you creates stronger, more fulfilling relationships. No more settling for an unsatisfying experience.

How To Use This Challenging Time In A Positive Way
If divorce becomes your path forward it can feel like you’ve failed, but it’s not the end of your story,  instead it’s the start of a new chapter waiting to be written. The initial uncertainty might shake your confidence and have you scrabbling for some solid ground and certainty, but inside you are the foundations of a stronger, more confident, more honest, direct and authentic man – your masculine energy which women love to experience from you.

Our coaching will help you navigate this emotional rollercoaster, rediscover your passion for life, and have you feeling optimistic and motivated again.

Finding The Passion In You Again
Remember the things that inspired you before life got complicated with responsibilities? Rediscovering your passions is one of the most important aspects of rebuilding your confidence. Our coaching helps you reconnect to that purposeful and inspired energy, whether it’s playing music, creating a new career, writing a book, mastering a new skill, or embarking on an impossible outdoor adventure. These passions of yours are important forgotten embers that reignite your inner fire, reminding you of the strong, capable man and leader that you truly are.

Purpose And Building a Life You Love
Your worth as a man isn’t tied solely to your relationship status and whether she loves (or even likes) you anymore. Taking a step back and evaluating your life from a wider perspective will help you find fulfillment in many different areas beyond just your romantic relationship. Our coaching helps you identify your core values, define the kind of life you really want, start taking action to change things straight away and build a life that you are inspired by, that makes you want to jump out of bed every morning and get going.

A man with purpose in all areas of his life is a man who is building a new kind of self-confidence, one where no-one can take your confidence away from you in the future, one where you are undaunted by life’s ups and downs and instead are enthusiastic and ready to face any challenge.

Becoming the Man You Were Meant to Be
It’s a cliche, but this crossroads in your life is an opportunity you can use to really take a good look at your life and reflect on what you want your next 30 years to be filled with.

For many of the men we work with, it’s a process of letting go of self doubt and stepping into a more deliberate and purposeful way of living as a man.

We help you USE your emotions as guideposts to live more inline with your intuition and courageously face the things you want to change.

We guide you to rebuild your confidence, reclaim your purpose, and start creating a future filled with passion, strength, and a new love for life. The coaching journey isn’t easy, but we’re there with you every step of the way.

You have the strength within you to take this moment in your life and use it to build a better life. One that’s filled with the kind of experiences you would love to enjoy.
