Because “BE A MAN” “DON’T BE SUCH A PUSSY” and “BIG BOYS DON’T CRY” has caused more damage than most men would like to admit. These terms have had a catastrophic affect on most of us, causing us to live quiet lives of isolation and desperation masked in bravado, sexual prowess, a thirst for power, and escapism through drinking, drugs and porn. Men are hurting far more than we want to let on, and everyone is paying the price regardless of age, nationality, or occupation. It’s time for us to step in and reclaim what it means to be a man.
Man cave was created to help us as a unit, EXPLORE, EXPAND and ELEVATE our lives to a point where we are TRULY happy, alive and on FIRE in life. Too many of us are just getting by, floating through life, kinda having fun, kinda connecting to our partners, kinda enjoying our money, kinda being a good Dad. And to me this is BS, as someone who’s lied, cheated, stole, vandalized, and been violent to other men, I know firsthand that this is NOT a life. This is a call for help, and for too long we haven’t had an outlet or a place to connect with other men and express what the hell is going on, let alone receive TOOLS and ACCOUNTABILITY to level up our lives.
Man cave was created so you don’t have to live with the regret of not taking the proverbial “bull by the horns” by living boldly and following your heart; so you have support in being a better Dad, brother, husband, business man, leader and YOU. It’s crystal fucking clear that men are in trouble in our world. We commit suicide 4x more than women, we have crazier diseases, we beat, rape, and kill literally and metaphorically because we have never been taught, nor had a true support system for, how to powerfully pave our path and step into CONSCIOUS manhood.
This is your chance to wake up and see yourself, so that you can create and live from your FULLEST potential and power before it’s too late. For the past 11 years I’ve been studying, teaching, and training in the Personal Development/Transformational space and in 99% of the rooms I entered, I was one of a very small group of men. Dudes have not been showing up when it comes to the work. Women meet up in sisterhood circles, they buy all the books, they take all the workshops, go to the retreats, and (as a whole) live longer...There is only reason for this and I would say it comes down to one word...PRIDE.
Men have been taught that we need to have all the “right” answers and have it all together and figured out. So to ask for help, to seek support, would be to admit that we don’t have it together, that we’ve somehow “failed” as a man. This is a self-made prison that we MUST be willing to free ourselves of immediately if we truly want to live.
