The True Measure of a Man Part 3 – Finding the True Riches of Life

The True Measure of a Man Part 3 – Finding the True Riches of Life

How do we find the true riches of life? In this series of talks we’ve discussed many fears and pitfalls that men experience – the fear of failure, battling the pressure to perform and ‘act like a man.’ We compare and compete constantly. This leaves men feeling isolated and alone.

If you think about it, a man’s greatest fear should never be the fear of failure, but the fear of actually succeeding at something that doesn’t really matter.

Author and coach Joe Ehrmann said, “At the end of our life, we ought to be able to look back over it from our deathbed and know somehow the world is a better place because we lived, we loved, we were other-centered, other-focused.”

Every real man should be investing their life in a cause that is bigger than your own individual hopes, dreams and desires. But how do we make the changes necessary to do that?

Today is the last of 3 talks that I gave back in 2009 after the stock market crash. These talks became the foundation of my book The True Measure of a Man, which continues to impact many lives, both men and women.
