A brave space for brave men, not bravado

Dear fellow man,

Dear fellow man,

We men were told we need to be strong. 

To be a man’s man. 

To have bulging muscles and rock-hard abs. 

To save the damsel in distress. 

To be the voice for the voiceless.

To be the hero in the story.



However, without healthy guidance and role models, this narrow vision of a “strong man” has birthed a distorted reality for many of us.

We become "strong" men who wield aggression, who use power to diminish others, and who boast of superficial achievements while lacking in genuine connections.

And if we don’t feel we match up physically, we find hidden ways to feel strong.


We criticise and judge others’ faults to gain an ego-high.

We engage in on-demand pornography to make us feel we are in-demand.

We indulge in certain sexual behaviours to feel powerful.

We preoccupy ourselves with past achievements, external success comparisons, social influencer indicators and brand and celebrity associations. 


Look where a distorted vision of “strength” has left us.

Weak.

Insecure.

Inconsistent.

Absent.

Immature.

But here’s what breaks my heart: we were set up to fail.


Because brute strength can only take us so far. 


It cannot grant us the grace to navigate our mistakes, earn the respect of others, or break free from the shackles of addiction.


It cannot salvage relationships or instill the confidence needed to live authentically. 


It couldn’t help the insecure and emotionally immature boy in me that never grew up as I physically grew in responsibilities as an adult.


In my own transformational journey, I've come to realize the importance of a needed paradigm shift a shift from brute strength to brave strength.

 

It's a different kind of muscle that needs developing. 


A new kind of strength that helps us recognise and navigate our fears, discomforts and unhealthy coping patterns.


A unique ability to navigate life's tensions, paradoxes and competing priorities in a healthy way.

How do I hold space to sit with unresolved problems when I’ve made a living by solving them?


How do I push ahead with the important work I need to do while nurturing important relationships that also need my attention? 


How do I practice self-care without becoming self-centered and self-indulgent? 


How do I make money while making time for what’s important? 


These are just some of the many questions that beg for answers, questions that demand a new approach—a pathway to become the type of men the world desperately needs and that our closest ones dearly love.


If you share my concerns about the current state of manhood and want to embark on a new journey with other brave men who have the same heart, then I invite you to join my 4 month Brave Men's coaching program.

"James was able to come alongside me on this journey, not just as someone who spoke life and encouragement, but as somebody who was careful in being real and honest with me. Nothing was ever simple throughout this process, but that was one of the reasons why I knew deep and lasting work was being done. I felt like James understood me and was helpful in laying out what the road to personal growth looked like for me."

Your LIFE TRAJECTORY COULD TOTALLY CHANGE…FOR THE BETTER

Your LIFE TRAJECTORY COULD TOTALLY CHANGE…FOR THE BETTER

For over 20 years I was trapped in a cycle of pursuing success as it was defined by society, striving to be a leader across corporate, startup, creative, and spiritual spaces.

I was chained to an unattainable vision of a man who could do it all.


I thought that if I could only apply the right productivity hacks or implement a fine-tuned time-management system, I could achieve everything.


I clearly remember a wake up moment. In the midst of significant travelling for work, I had the opportunity to go and surprise my wife and kids who were holidaying on the other side of the world. The trip I chose instead was one of guilt.


A church leader told me that my absence from a weekend gathering would look bad for the organisation. 

So, I prioritised protecting my public reputation as a “servant-hearted responsible leader” over the needs of my family.

To make things worse, I binged on pornography in my alone times to ease the discomfort of disappointing my family.


I had absolutely no idea how to manage the multiple expectations across my personal and professional lives in a way that was healthy and aligned to the man I wanted to become.


And the leaders who I looked up, to enabled me to keep going as is because I was valuable to them, I was an asset to the organisation and communities, I was super productive, I was a mover and shaker.


The turning point came when I accepted an invitation to go on a 3-4 month transformation program with other men (all strangers!).


I was met in my struggle and was suddenly compelled by a renewed vision of life that actually matched who I was deep down.


I began to learn how to practically navigate the tensions in my life in a healthy way.


I've now spent nearly five years immersed in transformational coaching, group training and addictions research.

The realignment of my life trajectory traced back to that decision I made in 2019 to join that men’s group.


I invite you to take a brave next step and join me and some other brave men.


Your life trajectory could totally change…for the better.
