It’s been said that the Definition of Hell is:
“At the end of your life, the man you became meets the man you could have become.”
This happens to the men who choose to settle for a life of predictability, comfort and safety…at the expense of living their Purpose.
This podcast is for the man who rejects good because he settles for nothing less than Great.
That man you “could have become” is the Great Man Within you.
Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) calls this the “other self.”
Stephen Pressfield (War of Art) calls this “the unlived life.”
Wayne Dyer (Wishes Fulfilled) calls this “the invisible self.”
Dominick Quartuccio and Bryan Stacy are your guides to helping you discover and live The Great Man Within You.

3 life changing benefits of building mental fortitude Why mental toughness doesn’t happen on its own…you need to cultivate it Tangible practices to expand your mental and emotional capacity ------
When it comes to responding to fear, you have 3 choices:
#1 React: Survival mode takes over, and you unconsciously eject, shut down, or run away.
#2: Act: You are stable, clear on the next right action and have the peace of mind to take it.
#3: ______ This is the path of fear least traveled…and the one most critical to take when the path of “act” is not yet clear.
In today’s episode, I reveal this elusive – and empowering – third path.
Turning Criticism into Life-Changing Courage
#200. In Napoleon Hill’s Outwitting the Devil, the devil says:
“One of my cleverest devices for mind control is fear. I plant the seed of fear in the minds of people, and as these seeds germinate and grow, through use, I control the space they occupy.”
Here are the devil’s 6 most effective fears to control the minds of people:
Fear of poverty Fear of criticism Fear of ill health Fear of loss of love Fear of old age Fear of death Note the #2 fear on the list, right behind the fear of poverty: the fear of criticism.
Here are just a few examples of how fear of criticism shrinks your life:
You don’t put yourself fully “out there” – in business, in love, in self expression You don’t go after the role you really want You don’t speak up for what you truly believe in You don’t take the stages to make your voice heard You don’t speak with as much conviction or you dilute your message You don’t launch the business or blog you’ve been dreaming of You don’t promote your business as fully as you could You don’t step into the leadership positions you desire You don’t command the money you know you deserve The Great Man Within You is not impervious to criticism. But he is not immobilized by it.
He refuses to allow his life to be shrunken by external forces. The Great Man Within You always lives from the inside out – relying on his inner compass to guide his life’s actions, even when the outside world seems to be throwing daggers.
I see so many potential Great Men sitting on the sidelines of their own lives because they fear being rocked by criticism that their inner worlds are not yet ready to withstand.
That’s why doing this inner work – and having a community of supportive men who will take the field with you – is essential for you to build the capacity to receive criticism and alchemize it into Courage.
Today, Bryan and I share with you examples about how we’ve been publicly criticized for the work we do…how painful that was for us at first…and how much stronger we are today for building the inner fortitude to handle it.
More importantly, how much freer, fully self-expressed and powerful our lives feel now that criticism no longer has the same crippling effect.
The same power and freedom is at your fingertips. If you are willing to step into the arena with us.

Men Talkin’ Man Stuff with Keith Bracci
#198. Today you’ve got 3 men – me, Bryan and Keith Bracci (one of the anchors of The Great Man Mastermind) – digging deep in our lives to share some of our perspectives on some of the most important men’s topics of today:
Why so many men build entire lives around the pursuit of achievement, at the expense of passion, purpose and inner peace How to emotionally hold powerful masculine space for our children and romantic relationships – especially when we cannot solve or fix their problem Why the thinking/intellectual mind is often the slowest and least accurate part of ourselves to rely upon What are the mature signs of affection between platonic masculine men How latent homophobia prevents men from bonding in physical and emotional ways How doing inner work with other men has accelerated and deepened our growth…light years faster than going at it on our own
Customer ReviewsSee All
Dom and Bryan are two courageous men discussing some challenging topics. It’s been a joy watching this show evolve. I really appreciate the authenticity that comes through and bottom line real talk. I highly recommend this show if your looking for inspiration on how to be a better man. I know I’m a greater man for it. Keep crushing it.
Thanks for the challenge and for being raw and real guys.
Dom and Bryan-
Thank you so much for the latest podcast about responding to criticism. I have found myself struggling a lot more due to others perceptions or what I perceived how others felt about me. I have put a wall up for so long, whether that it is through relationships, friendships, etc. due to the fear of harsh rejection. It is hard to let that possibility come in after having it happen before. In working on improving myself, your podcasts has been a source of wisdom and motivation about experiences that I felt like I was completely alone on in facing. As I am in my 20’s, I have begun to challenge myself more to do things I am passionate on, and pursue opportunities I used to recoil and hold back on because of the fear of criticism. I have joined the FB page, and I am grateful for the daily motivators that it provides me in helping me work on who I am, and who I know I want to be.
These Guys Saved My Life
These two guys cut through the B.S. They discuss things that matter so that we can make ourselves matter. Not just that, but how to make sure every day counts! They create a space where we can start being accountable for what we do with our lives. Dom and Bryan know what they’re talking about. Never have I walked away empty from any one of their shows. They aren’t just concerned about one group of people either. Everyone is included here. Period.
