MAN up! Boys don't cry! Stop being a p***y! What, are you gay?

Have you ever heard these phrases hurled at you?
Have you ever felt like you didn't quite fit into society's masculine expectations and what it means to "be a man"?
These masculinity norms do more harm than you realize and hold you back from being your TRUE self and living YOUR best life.
Being manly isn't about fitting in with your culture's expectations, it's about standing out with your authenticity.

Being emotional, kind and empathetic isn't feminine, it's human.
It takes a ton more courage to stand up and say "this is me" than it does to just fall in line and be the man they said you SHOULD be.

Join us as we discuss these outdated and damaging expectations by expressing ourselves with honesty, courage and vulnerability.
We'll go behind the masks we all wear and show the world what being a man truly is.
If you're a man that's been holding yourself back from your truth and your greatness because they say it's not "manly", this podcast is for you.

Christian Lopez is a former professional athlete turned confidence coach and motivational speaker who has battled his own fears, failures and insecurities and is on a mission to help you do the same and realize that you're good enough just as you are.

    Are You Good Enough?

    Are You Good Enough?

    Are you good enough? What does it mean to be good enough?
    Does it have to do with how much money you make, how big your house is, what kind of car you drive or what your job is?
    What does it mean to be good enough as a man?
    Is it something we can measure on the outside, or what kind of person we are on the inside? Can it even be measured? Is there a role model for "good enough"?
    These are questions that I've struggled with and still struggle with.
    Join me for this solo episode as I dive deep into it.

    So You Want To Live Like A Rock Star?

    So You Want To Live Like A Rock Star?

    Led Zeppelin. The Rolling Stones. The Beatles. Jimi Hendrix.
    Rock stars. Legends. Gods. Idols.
    Every man wanted to be them and every woman wanted to be with them.
    They were the epitome of cool, bad ass, manly, masculinity.
    But, if you look a little bit closer and dig a little bit deeper, you'll see that there was more to these paragons of perfection than just sex, drugs and rock and roll.
    Join me for this solo episode as I discuss what it means to truly live the rock star life.

    What's Your Brand of Masculinity? with Mike Iamele

    What does masculinity mean to you?

    What Are You Hiding From?

    What Are You Hiding From?

    Do you hide? B******t.
    Even the "manliest" among us hide.
    Maybe not from a fight, from your responsibilities, or from the ups and downs of life... but from your emotions.
    Especially "lesser" emotions like fear, shame, insecurity and unworthiness.
    Instead of accepting those emotions and diving deep into them and working through them, we suppress them and hide them.
    We lash out whenever one of them is triggered and we're reminded of our inherent vulnerability.
    Join me for this solo episode about hiding.
