    ROBERT GREENE | The Laws of Power and Human Nature

    ROBERT GREENE | The Laws of Power and Human Nature

    If only more of us, as men, learned more about the laws of power and the dynamics of human nature, we’d be able to lead others more effectively. Unfortunately, many men believe that even exploring these concepts is an immoral pursuit. And, although they can be used to hurt others, they can also be used to fulfill our responsibilities to protect, provide, and preside.

    Today, I am joined by multiple New York Times Bestselling Author, Robert Greene to talk about the negative stigma that comes with power and human nature dynamics. We also cover embracing weirdness, what he refers to as “power games,” how life isn’t always a win-win, why so many people have incorporated whining as a tactic for power, and why manipulation isn’t inherently wrong.
    SHOW HIGHLIGHTS
    The “Crisis Generation” Finding middle ground Dealing with Woke Culture  Painful opportunities and lessons Why parents have become so afraid How resistance makes you tougher Influencing people Not taking things personally  The Manipulative Side of humans  Getting what you want Changing other opinions Virtue signaling as a strategy The human desire for power  Gain at the expense of another Becoming more enlightened  Asymmetric warfare  Operating outside a moral code
    ROBERT GREENE
    My guest today is the one and only Robert Greene. Needless to say, his writings and teaching have inspired much discussion and controversy about the laws of human nature and how to harness them effectively.

    He is the author of many books including The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, Mastery, and The Laws of Human Nature. And, for over 25 years, he’s been researching, studying, and sharing lessons about how people behave and why they do what they do.

    This one was a very enlightening discussion and gave me some tremendous insight into not only how Robert’s mind works, but other humans as well.
    IRON COUNCIL

    Gents, obviously, we’ve been talking a lot about how humans behave and, along those same lines, I’ve found that one of the things we, as men, crave most is other men who are willing and able to walk shoulder to shoulder with us in life.

    Of course, there is the camaraderie of brotherhood but the accountability that comes from surrounding yourself with successful men cannot be overstated. That’s why the Iron Council, our exclusive brotherhood, is so powerful.

    Inside the Iron Council, you’ll unlock access to the network of men you can count on to push, teach, mentor, and band with you. And, you’ll also find the framework needed to thrive in a world that continues to grow more complex and competitive by the day.

    If you’re ready to band with a solid group of men, join us inside the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

    EDDIE PENNEY | Living Unafraid

    EDDIE PENNEY | Living Unafraid

    We live in some interesting times, to say the least. Coronavirus, the reaction to Coronavirus, political unrest, freezing temperatures across the country, riots, and so much more. And, unfortunately, rather than meeting these challenges on our feet like men, many have allowed fear to dictate their course of action.
    Today, I am joined by former Navy SEAL, Eddie Penney to talk about living life unafraid. We talk about dealing with death, addressing and overcoming the victimhood mentality, equality vs. equity, where morals and values are derived from, and how to live fully in spite of the fear that surrounds us.
    SHOW HIGHLIGHTS
    The things that people are afraid to talk about The silent majority The trend of a degenerate society Believing in the sanctity of human life Getting on your knees and kissing ass Treating everyone equally The best person for the job Difficult conversations with friends Believing you’re entitled to things Feeling excluded and left out Teaching your children about motivation and drive The discomfort in being selfless There’s no consequence to laziness Standing on your own two feet Socially adjusted kids The “unafraid” movement Addressing the elephant in the room Leading with a mature response Feeling blessed with your circumstances Proving something to yourself Turning things around Fighting for what is right The threat of losing freedom Being manipulated and controlled
    EDDIE PENNEY
    My guest today is Eddie Penney. He spent 20 years in the military as a Marine initially then a Navy SEAL assigned to Navy Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), better known as SEAL Team Six.

    He’s an absolutely incredible human being and has proven himself to be a tremendous asset in the military, to his children, and in later founding the Contingent Group which is an organization designed to provide safety and security needs for people and organizations domestically and internationally.
    THE IRON COUNCIL
    I ask every new member of our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, why they decided to band with us, and, overwhelmingly, it boils down to accountability.

    Accountability just isn’t something many men seem to be getting in any other capacity of life. But inside of the Iron Council, we have developed the systems and strategies for maximum accountability to other high-achieving men and, more importantly, accountability to yourself.

    And, we’ve found that when a man learns how to harness the power of accountability, he is able to be much more productive, effective, and fulfilled in every other area of his life. Accountability fills the void that many men experience in their lives.

    So, if you’re looking to harness the power of accountability in your life, we invite you to join us in the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Awesome

I started to listen to Order of Man back in 2016 and I did stop but last year I picked it back up from where I left off and I am hooked walking the path to be the Man I am meant to be. I can’t thank Ryan, Kipp and all the guest that come on the show enough for the wisdom and knowledge they leave for the men of the world to pick up and learn from and continue to grow. Thanks for all you guys do.

Soothing voice

My husband initially listened to order of man and I loved hearing the banter back and forth that it naturally just put me to sleep at night time. There are nights where he wasn’t here so I asked what it was he put on at night that got me to fall asleep so well so I could listen to it.

Some nights I really couldn’t sleep so I would put on a podcast and started actually listening to what the topics were and I found that I have been looking at my life a bit differently. Most of these are more directed to men but I felt that they related to me in how life should be approached too. I enjoy the positive way he looks at life and i now fall asleep to the topics he gets me thinking about that drift me off into my dreams and the next day I feel great.

I know your podcast’s aren’t for this in particular but I just wanted to thank you for helping me go to sleep at night :)
