    What Makes a Man in Today’s World With Steve Harvey

    What Makes a Man in Today’s World With Steve Harvey

    Steve Harvey is a media conglomerate personified in a man whose career began doing stand-up comedy in the mid-1980s. His success as a stand-up comedian eventually led to a long stint as host of It’s Showtime at the Apollo.
    His stand-up success has also led to multiple TV shows and movies, serving various roles on some projects acting, hosting, writing and producing, and his career has continued to flourish, becoming a top-rated radio host, fashion entrepreneur, best-selling author, popular game show host on Family Feud, and 2013 People’s Choice Award winner as “Favorite New Talk Show Host” for his new daytime show Steve Harvey. Harvey just recently renewed deals in January 2013 for his daytime show and radio show.
    1. Real Men handle their Responsibilities
    Being a man is simple.
    No, you don’t have to ride a motorcycle, hunt wild bears, or shoot bad guys in the face.
    All that you have to do to be a real man is to take care of your responsibilities.
    If you can do that, then you are a man.
    If you wake up every morning, go into the world and earn your living, and then come home and provide for your wife and children then you are a man.
    If you are single, then it is your responsibility to prepare for the family that you will one day have.
    This isn’t rocket science.
    Just do the work and handle your responsibilities.
    That’s it.
    2. Men Need More Mentors and Fathers 
    One of the most pervasive diseases that is facing the modern man is the disease of the absent father.
    Men are growing up without a clue, wondering what it means to be a man and getting all of their guidance from rappers, movie stars, and friends.
    This is a tragedy.
    If more men grew up with fathers who loved them, supported them, and taught them what it truly meant to be a man, how much better would the world be?
    What would that do for society?
    As a man, it is your responsibility to be there for your children, no matter what.
    3. You Are Ready for a Relationship When You Are Tired of the Revolving Door 
    Have you ever woken up next to a beautiful woman after a one night stand and thought to yourself “Is this it?”
    If so, then you are ready for a relationship.
    Most men are not ready for monogamy and commitment until they have been stuck in the revolving door for quite some time.
    We need to get it out of our systems.
    We need to experience different women, to figure out what we want, and to learn about how the fairer sex works.
    Once this becomes a chore, once you no longer get excited at the prospect of being with another girl and instead you fantasize about building a life with someone… then you are ready for a real relationship.
    4. Men Need Love, Loyalty, and Support 
    As a man, you must look for three qualities in your woman.
    You need a woman who will love you, a woman who is loyal to you, and a woman who will support you.
    That’s it.
    If your woman truly loves you, remains loyal to you when times are hard, and she is willing to support your dreams and ambitions, then you have found a woman worth keeping.
    But if she lacks even one of these qualities, then you must cut your losses and move on, because you will not be able to force what isn’t there.
    5. Provide, Protect, and Profess 
    As a man, your job is simple.
    You must provide, protect, and profess your love for your woman.
    That’s it.
    If you are providing her with everything that she needs to have her needs met.
    If you are protecting her physically and emotionally from the danger of the world.
    And if you are professing your love for her on a regular basis, then you have done your job as a man.

    A Counter Intuitive Approach to Living a Good Life With Mark Manson

    A Counter Intuitive Approach to Living a Good Life With Mark Manson

    Mark Manson is a blogger, author, and entrepreneur. He specializes in writing personal development advice that doesn’t suck. His website MarkManson.net is read by over 2 million people each month.
    He has written two best-sellers Models: The Art of Attracting Women Through Honesty and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counter-Intuitive Approach to Living a Good Life. markmanson.netYou can connect with him and learn more at
    Key Points 1. There is No Such Thing as a Problem Free Life
    Life is not easy, anyone who tells you otherwise is full of crap.
    Life can suck sometimes and that is just the reality.
    However, you should not see this as a bad thing, in fact, you should appreciate it.
    If life is going to be painful no matter what, this means that you have a choice to choose what kind of pain you want to endure.
    You can endure the pain of failure or you can endure the pain of struggling to achieve success.
    2. Pain Isn’t Always Bad Pleasure Isn’t Always Good 
    Something that most people misunderstand is that pain is not always a bad thing and pleasure is not always a good thing.
    You can achieve pleasure by purchasing mounds of cocaine and heroin, but that would not be expedient for achieving your goals and living the life that you want.
    You can also be in pain by pursuing your goals and trying to achieve greatness but this is not necessarily a bad thing.
    Accept the fact that life is not about being in a constant state of euphoria, it is about overcoming challenges and living a life of meaning.
    3. Your Behaviors Dictate Your Values
    Whenever you ask people what they value they will tell you all sorts of things and about how they value family, fitness, or personal growth.
    However, their actions say otherwise.
    They say that they value family but they spend all of their time working.
    They say they value health but workout only once a month and treat their body like sh!t.
    Maybe they even say that they don’t value their sex life and yet they are out every week trying to get with a new girl.
    If you want to know what you truly value, take a look at your actions.
    Be willing to examine yourself and your life without any bias or judgment and make changes accordingly.
    If you don’t you will spend your whole life spinning your wheel and accomplishing very little.
    4. A Constant Pursuit of Happiness Leads to Dissatisfaction
    Most self-help movements in the modern world seem hell bent on helping people achieve this constant state of euphoria.
    But the sad fact is, by pursuing happiness, you actually make yourself less happy.
    In every moment, you are always wondering “Am I as happy as I could be right now? What more could I be doing?” and you end up feeling depressed and frustrated because you are not happier.
    The same is true with your physique, bank account, and game.
    If you are constantly trying to be the absolute best, you will never be able to appreciate where you are.
    Learn to just accept that you may not be the richest, best looking, or most charismatic man in the room and work with that.
    Accept yourself for who you are and work to improve in the areas that are truly lacking.
    Otherwise, you will be like a dog chasing its tail and end up living a miserable life.
    5. You are Going to Die 
    This is one of the most important things to remember in your life.
    No matter what you achieve, not matter how much money you make, who you marry, or how many people’s lives you affect, at the end of the day you are going to die.
    There is no way around it.
    Death is the only constant in every human being’s life.
    But this should not depress or scare you.
    It should liberate you.
    The inevitability of death means that you can free yourself from the expectations of others, the drama of daily life, and the fear that accompanies big decisions.
    If you are going to die, then all that matter is the legacy

    [Interview] Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It (Because it Does) With Kamal Ravikant

    [Interview] Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It (Because it Does) With Kamal Ravikant

    Of the hundreds of podcast interviews I’ve done, few are more potent and powerful than my discussion with Kamal Ravikant.
    An infamous Silicon Valley entrepreneur, eclectic millionaire, and paradoxical human (who is equal parts hustler and mystic), Kamal Ravikant’s book, Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It, transformed my life and helped me achieve unprecedented success and fulfillment.
    And in our interview, he will flip your world upside down, change everything you ever thought you knew about success, and reveal why self-love is the key to…well, everything.
    Let’s dive in.
    Who is Kamal Ravikant? Kamal Ravikant is one of the world’s most interesting entrepreneurs, whose initial success was found in the Silicon Valley.
    In addition to his entrepreneurial success, Kamal has also trekked the Himalayas, meditated with Tibetan monks in the Dalai Lama’s monastery, served in the US Army Infantry, and walked 550 miles across Spain.
    He is also the author of Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It, Live Your Truth, and Rebirth.
    Favorite Success Quote “Destiny favors the committed.”
    “Hater’s gonna hate!” ~Taylor Swift
    Key Points from my Interview with Kamal Ravikant 1. Commit To Yourself 
    Making and keeping a commitment to oneself is the ultimate measure of a man’s success.
    We live in a society full of liars and fakes.
    And I do not mean that people are maliciously seeking to manipulate their way to the top or intentionally putting on a facade of success and gravitas.
    We live in a society where the greatest lies that are told are the ones that we tell ourselves.
    “This time it will be different.”
    “This is the year that I will quit smoking/doing drugs/watching porn/standing on the sidelines”
    “This is the year where I will take control of my life and start my own business.”
    We live in a society that lies to itself to sedate the pain of staying the same.
    But what if things could be different?
    What if we were able to make commitments and follow through on them?
    What if we valued ourselves and our own word so much that the very thought of backing out of a commitment that we made to ourselves was unthinkable?
    It is possible.
    But it starts by learning to value yourself and the commitments that you are making.
    It starts with integrity, with giving a damn about your word and your own personal dignity.
    And more importantly, as we will discuss in a minute, it starts by loving yourself.
    2. Execution, not Ideation is the Key to Success
    Everyone has a great idea.
    Everyone has an idea that could make them a billionaire (or at least much wealthier than they already are).
    So why are there so many broke and impoverished people? Especially in a country like the U.S. where there are so many opportunities?
    Because ideas  are not worth a damn thing. Only execution is.
    The greatest investors in the world never bet on the idea, just the team behind it.
    If you want to succeed, stop worrying about what you are going to do, and start worrying about how you are going to do it and who you are going to become so that you can achieve your goals.
    Forget all of your ideas.
    Instead, worry about transforming yourself into the kind of person who can execute and bring ideas to life.
    3. Loving Yourself is Selfless
    So often people read the titles of books like “Love Yourself” and “Choose Yourself” and they think “Wow! What selfless a-holes these people are”
    But what they never stop to realize is that the greatest narcissists in the world are the people who loathe themselves.
    If you love yourself and take care of #1, then you enter into the world from a place of peace, joy, and love and therefore you are able to pour out into others and be the light that others can follow.
    If you do not love yourself, then you enter the world from a place of scarcity, fear, and anx

    Master the Inner Game of Wealth and Fix Your “Money Blueprint” With T. Harv Eker

    Master the Inner Game of Wealth and Fix Your “Money Blueprint” With T. Harv Eker

    If you’re looking to upgrade your “money mindset”, create an abundance of financial and spiritual wealth, and finally achieve your lifelong goal of financial freedom, this interview with T. Harv Eker might be the most important podcast you ever listen to.
    In our hour-long conversation, Harv and I dive deep into the psychology of the wealthiest people on the planet.
    He reveals the most common mistakes that hold people back from achieving true wealth, why your financial “vehicle” doesn’t matter, and why you’ll never get rich…unless you fix your financial “blueprint”.
    It’s an eye-opening and wildly practical conversation and I promise, if you apply the lessons inside of it…it will change the trajectory of your financial future forever.
    Let’s dive in.
    Who is T. Harv Eker? Using the principles he teaches, T. Harv Eker went from zero to millionaire in only 2 1/2 years! He combines a unique brand of ‘street-smarts with heart’.
    Eker’s high-energy, ‘cut-to-the-chase’ style keeps his audience spellbound. T. Harv Eker’s motto is “talk is cheap” and his unique ability is getting people to take “action” in the real world to produce real success.
    Eker is the author of the best-selling books, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and SpeedWealth. He has also developed several highly-acclaimed courses such as The Millionaire Mind Intensive, Life Directions, Wizard Training and Train the Trainer. He is also the producer and trainer of the world-famous Enlightened Warrior Training.
    During his years of struggle, Eker vowed that should he ever get rich, he would help others do the same. He has kept his promise. He has already touched the lives of over 1.5 million people, helping them move closer to their goal of true financial freedom.
    Favorite Success Quote “This is it.” – T. Harv Eker
    Key Lessons from My Interview with T. Harv Eker 1. Stop Chasing Money and Start Solving Problems
    If you want to get rich, then you need to do something that is completely counter-intuitive.
    STOP chasing money.
    If you are constantly chasing money, then you are focused entirely on the wrong things.
    Getting rich requires that you solve problems, period.
    There is no shortcut to riches, no easy way to wealth, and no true success that can be had without a maniacal focus on finding problems and providing solutions.
    If you want to make a million dollars, then you need to find a million-dollar problem and solve it.
    If you want to make ten million dollars, then find a ten million dollar problem and solve it.
    Money flows to the people who are solving problems and providing value… not to the people who are just trying to make a quick buck.
    When you chase money, you’ll be quick to fall prey to a myriad of vices…from substance abuse (think Wall Street Bankers using Adderall and cocaine to “get the edge), to unethical practices (think: Wolf of Wall Street), to workaholism. But when you set out to solve a problem…specifically a problem you are passionate and excited about…everything else falls into place.
    2. Forget Finding the Right Vehicle for Wealth 
    You will never find the right vehicle to achieve financial success until you become the right driver.
    Why is it that thousands of people get involved in network marketing, real estate, and social media, but only a handful of those people achieve real financial success?
    It’s clearly not the vehicle.
    History has irrevocably shown us that it is possible to become immensely wealthy by using any of the industries mentioned above.
    Hell, some of the richest people in the world built their fortune in industries as mundane as concrete, gravel, and solar panels.
    The real problem that prevents people from achieving financial freedom is that they are not showing up as the person they need to be to achieve success.

    Pursue Your Purpose and Crush Life With Grant Cardone

    Pursue Your Purpose and Crush Life With Grant Cardone

    Grant Cardone is an international business and sales expert. He has authored 4 business books and customized sales training programs for Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, success-minded individuals and entrepreneurs.
    Cardone, a dynamic, highly sought after international speaker, captivates audiences with his down-to-earth, entertaining speaking style as he tackles timely topics regarding sales, marketing, branding and entrepreneurship, outlining what people need to do to thrive in the new global economy..
    In Grant’s second appearance on the Knowledge for Men show, we delve deeper into how to create a successful life and business and what mindsets and philosophies you need to make 2015 your best year ever.
    Key Points 1. Perfection is Just an Excuse for Inaction
    So many people claim to be perfectionists. They say that they don’t want to publish any content until it’s perfect, they can’t write that book, release that podcast, publish that website, until it’s absolutely perfect.
    The cold reality is that perfectionism is simply an excuse for inaction.
    No, you’re not a perfectionist, you’re just not taking action. You don’t have writers block, you just aren’t writing. You don’t have any excuse to be sitting on your ass!
    Realize that you will never be perfect, the content you create will never be perfect, nothing you do will ever be quite perfect. But you must take action anyways!
    Imperfect action is better than no action, and the only thing you can do worse than the wrong thing is nothing. So get out there and start creating, start selling, start whatever has been on your heart and be willing to work through imperfection until you achieve success.
    2. You’ll Never Make a Shot You Don’t Take 
    A huge fear that prevents many entrepreneurs from taking action is the fear of failure. What they don’t realize, however, is that the greatest failure is inaction.
    It is impossible to succeed at something you do not try. If you attempt a new job, business, relationship, or take some big risk and “fail” you have learned something and moved closer towards the life of your dreams. If you sit on your ass, not taking any action; you have seen nothing, done nothing, and achieved nothing.
    If you want to be a success, you have to be a massive action taker, get out there and tear it up! Feel the fear and do it anyways. Start that business, ask that girl out, move out and travel the world. Life is too damn short to live in fear of failure. You must make the fear of regret greater than any fear of failure could be.
    3. Success Takes Persistence and Determination
    Grant spent over half of his life in the single minded pursuit of success. Along the way, he failed countless times. By his own estimation, he has made hundreds of thousands of sales calls, and only succeeded at a rate of 20%. But that 20% has allowed him to make hundreds of millions of dollars and become one of the world’s leading authorities on sales and business success.
    Realize that if you want to succeed, it will take time. It may take ten years, it may take 20, it takes however long it takes. While this may seem like a big sacrifice, the simple reality is that the true sacrifice is living a mediocre life for those 10-20 years.
    If you want to be successful, if you want to wake up every day with a smile on your face, a beautiful women next to you in bed, a full bank account and a happy life, it will take hard work.
    But it will be worth it.
    4. Never Abandon Your Purpose 
    Many men (especially men with family’s) believe that it is a somehow noble gesture to give up on their hopes, goals, and dreams for their family. They believe that it is somehow a worthy life to forgo everything you have ever wanted to create and be remembered for for the sake of your wife and kids.
    While this may sound selfless and chivalrous on the surface, you ha

    The Little Things that Can Change Your Life (Any Maybe the World) With William H. McRaven

    The Little Things that Can Change Your Life (Any Maybe the World) With William H. McRaven

    William H. McRaven is a former United States Navy admiral who last served as the ninth commander of the United States Special Operations Command from August 8, 2011, to August 28, 2014. Since January 2015, he has served as the chancellor of The University of Texas System.
    McRaven previously served from June 13, 2008, to August 2011 as Commander, Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and from June 2006 to March 2008 as Commander, Special Operations Command Europe (SOCEUR).  In addition to his duties as COMSOCEUR, he was designated as the first director of the NATO Special Operations Forces Coordination Centre (NSCC), where he was charged with enhancing the capabilities and inter-operability of all NATO Special Operations Forces.
    Admiral McRaven retired from the Navy on August 28, 2014, after more than 37 years of service.
    Favorite Success Quote If by Rudyard Kipling
    Key Points 1. Focus on Doing Your Duties Now 
    Success in life doesn’t come from focusing on what you are going to do in the future.
    It comes from focusing all of your attention on the tasks that are in front of you right now.
    Yes, you should have goals, dreams, and aspirations.
    However, do not allow these dreams and aspirations to rule the present moment.
    Instead, focus on the now, focus on what is right in front of you, focus more on the next 24 hours and less on the next 24 years.
    The quickest way to achieve success (whatever your definition of success might be) is to have a plan and then execute on that plan, day in and day out.
    Do your duties now and allow tomorrow to take care of itself.
    2. You Can’t Make it Alone 
    Many men like to think that they are an island, they like to believe that they are the Alpha and Omega of their lives.
    Until one day, they are struck by the very harsh reality that they are not.
    No man, regardless of size, intelligence or other capability has ever “made it” on this planet by themselves.
    We were designed for community and teamwork.
    One of the fastest ways to achieve your mission, whether that is in business, in your health, or in your relationships is to surround yourself with amazing, like-minded individuals who can help support you and push you along the journey.
    With a tight-knit circle of influence, you will be able to accelerate your results, find your blind spots, and receive help when you are outside of your comfort zone.
    And more than that, you will have more fun!
    Life is a team sport, it’s meant to be played with other people.
    So eradicate the erroneous notion that real men do it alone.
    Build your tribe and have a blast doing it.
    3. What Are You Really Made of?
    So often in our modern society, we are quick to judge others (and ourselves) on external factors like height, weight, attractiveness, financial success, and social capital.
    But we forget that our worth is defined by how much heart we have, not how much money or muscle we have.
    A person’s worth is defined by what’s inside.
    Admiral McRaven illustrates this point perfectly in his book when he shares the story of Thomas Norris, a Navy Seal who was awarded the congressional medal of honor.
    During training, nearly all of his classmates assumed that Tom would fail.
    He was short, skinny, and out of shape compared to the other men.
    However, Tom had a level of internal fortitude, mental strength, and heart that few men in the world display.
    And his bravery was exemplified repeatedly on the battlefield, especially during the infamous rescue mission that lead to his Congressional Medal of Honor.
    Like Tom, many of you might not be what comes to mind physically when people think of an “Alpha” or a “Real Man”.
    But that isn’t what matters.
    What are you made of?
    Who are you?
    What is your character like when everything goes wrong and your life is spiraling out of control?
    That is what determines your worth as a ma
