A high-performing man’s guide to the essentials: PURPOSE: Learn how to find your calling and live a life of meaning and fulfillment. SEX & INTIMACY: Master sex and deepen intimacy MASCULINITY: Debunk outdated myths and define masculinity on your own terms. LEADERSHIP: Master the art of leading yourself so you can inspire and impact others. BOOKS GREAT MEN READ: Get access to must-read books for aspiring Great Men. WOMEN: Learn inside secrets from inspiring leaders of women’s communities. 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.

Welcome back to our special Building Your Best Self Series, a 13-episode mini adventure to help you envision the Great Man you intend to become in 2022, to commit to becoming that man, and how to develop a plan of action to bring your best self into being. Last week we kicked off the first of 13 episodes, tackling 5 questions every man needs to ask about his life. Highly encourage you to go back and listen to that if you haven’t already. Today is episode #2 of 13, and we’re going to be exploring one of the most crucial concepts around how to find Purpose in your life: doing what gives you your Greatest Energy. Your Greatest Energy comes from doing the things where you feel a full sense of engagement – fully absorbed in what you’re doing, often losing track of time in the process, and feeling that intrinsic sense of fulfillment when you’re done. In other words, its not about the outcome, but the inner reward of how you felt during that entire time you spent in your Greatest Energy. If you spent 8 hours in your Greatest Energy, sure might find yourself physically tired, but emotionally, mentally, spiritually, your tank is full. You might be thinking “I have no idea what gives me that feeling,” in which case, you’re not alone, and you’re not in the minority. By the end of this episode, you’ll have a roadmap for how to discover and spend more time doing the things that give you your Greatest Energy. In This Episode: 5 questions to help you identify your Greatest Energy Why curiosity is your compass for finding your Greatest Energy Why finding your Greatest Energy often has nothing to do with your work How you can integrate your Greatest Energy into your work How following your Greatest Energy inevitably leads you to living your Purpose
Building Your Best Self #1: 5 Questions Every Man Must Ask About His Life
49:48#268 The Article: 10 Questions Every Man Must Ask About His Life Join the Facebook Group for Men: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheGreatManWithin --------------------------------------- There comes a time in a man’s life – usually at 1:30am on a Sunday night when you’re trying to sleep – when you start to ask yourself the deeper questions about life, such as: “Who am I?” “What the hell am I doing with my life?” “How many more streaming services before I feel complete?” These are big questions, well, the first two were at least, and they can be nearly impossible to navigate on your own. You see, the quality of your life often depends on the quality of questions you ask. That’s particularly true of the quality of questions you ask as you inspect your own life. As we’re already in the final 90 days of 2021, you may find yourself asking deeper questions about how you showed up this year, how you want to finish this year, and how you want to kickstart 2022. So to help you do that, the final 13 episodes of 2021 are all organized and tightly focused around one central theme: Stepping Into Your Great Man in 2022. That means we’ll be honing in on: How to design the next year of your life How to design the optimal day How to execute on the complex and meaningful changes in your life The books you need to read in 2022 How to build a life that feels adventurous, meaningful and full of forward momentum These are just a few of the topics you can expect over the final 90 days of this year. This episode kickstarts our 90 day march towards the finish line of 2021: 5 Questions Every Man Must Ask About His Life. By the way, these questions have been sourced by the men in The Great Man Within community…there’s 10 of them actually. And the big dawg Bryan Stacy and I are going to get you started with the first 5 questions. The other 5 are linked in the show notes with the article titled: 10 Questions Every Man Must Ask About His Life. This article is a great piece for you to share with the men in your life who are starting to ask different questions about their life…but are hesitant or unsure about taking action yet. It’s written in plain English so the mainstream man can digest it. And again, that’s linked in the shownotes.

Money. Unpacking the most important lessons from Lynne Twist’s perspective expanding book: The Soul of Money: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Life 2. Sex. Survey results from 300 women in my community on the following questions: a. In your experience, do men typically invite you into pre-sex conversations about desires, boundaries, how your body is feeling in this moment etc? b. When you’ve established a boundary or said “no” to something, does the man thank you for communicating that…or does he react with disappointment or resistance? c. On average, how do you feel about the level of aftercare you’ve received from your man (aftercare = after the physical sex is over, how does he care for you emotionally)? 3. Identity: Since the single biggest driver of your life’s actions is your identity, it begs the question: How much of your identity have you consciously chosen, and how much if it is unconscious?

Cam Fraser is a sex coach for men, a counselor, yoga teacher and tantric practitioner. Cam’s highly regarded in the sex education communities where Bryan and I travel. He specializes in helping men realize there’s nothing wrong with them if they experience premature ejaculation, low libido, erectile dysfunction…and instead provides practical guidance on how to take control over these areas of your sexual life which in turn brings confidence to all other areas of your life.

A Step-by-Step Blueprint to Better Sexual Conversations w/Your Woman feat. Hannah Deindorfer
50:45#264 Join the Facebook Group for Men: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheGreatManWithin Download free resources: https://www.dominickq.com/resources Inquire about The Great Man Mastermind: Hello@DominickQ.com ------------------------------------------------------- In the one of our Great Man Masterminds, we’ve embarked on a 90-day exploration on how to become better lovers to our romantic partners. We’re focusing on 3 main themes: Leadership – How are we leading both in and out of the bedroom. Intimacy – How do we cultivate closeness and depth with our partners? Sexuality – What turns us on, our partners on, how do we keep the fire burning and how do we talk about all this stuff? In service to that last theme of sexuality, I knew I needed to introduce you guys to a very special woman who has a knack for distilling the practical steps necessary to invite your partner to have better conversations around sex. Who is Hannah Deindorfer? Hannah is a difficult woman to describe succinctly because she’s like a Swiss Army Knife of talents. She teaches female fitness entrepreneurs how to build 6-7 figure business practices with a blend of business and personal development coaching. She also teaches female business owners how to deepen their connection to pleasure, playfulness, purpose, and her power…through the realm of sexuality. Hannah is also a Queen of resilience. She’s a sexual abuse survivor, overcome anorexia, addiction, and depression to thrive in her personal life and as an entrepreneur. She’s also a proud submissive. She drops some wisdom bombs about how you can take BDSM communication techniques and use them to electrify more traditional sexual settings In this Episode A step-by-step blueprint for better sexual conversations How to invite her to have a conversation about sex that feels like a gift for her 3-4 questions you can ask to allow her to feel safe, cared for and build trust in you How to handle feelings of rejection when your desires aren’t met How and why to praise your woman when she says “no” before or during sex Why establishing safe words elevates trust and enables the exploration of new territory The most underrated part of sex – aftercare – and examples of how you can bring your women in for a smooth landing after rocking her world One quick note: The title of this episode has “woman” in it because Hannah speaks from her own experience as a woman, but I reckon most of what she shared is applicable to any sexual partnership that desires better communication.

Matt Zerker, Founder of Tethr, Men’s Mental Health Community on Finding Inner Freedom, The Dangers of High Performance Driven by Fear, and The Benefits of Community vs. Lone Wolfing
1:00:39#263 Join the Facebook Group for Men: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheGreatManWithin Stop Lone Wolfing and Inquire about The Great Man Masterminds: Hello@DominickQ.com ----------------------------------------- “I don’t want to live. I don’t want to die. I don’t know what to do.” These were the words that left Matt Zerker’s lips in front of his men’s group. It was his first time verbalizing and fully coming clean about the realities of his inner struggle that he’d lone wolfed for so long on his own. That was the day he found a newfound sense of freedom, power and clarity in his life. Up until that point, Matt was extremely successful on paper – a high performer in every regard from athletics, to social standing to business, where he helped start a quantitative asset management firm with $0 in assets grow to $350M. But like so many men, much of that high performance lifestyle was driven from a deep sense of inadequacy, vs from a conscious connection to his inner compass guided by his higher purpose. After the sudden death of a close friend and hitting his own personal bottom… …Matt began a painful journey to find his center, which eluded him for a number of years as he sought help on his own. He would only find that center once he stopped lone wolfing and found a community of men where he could reveal the reality of his inner struggle – not wanting to live, not wanting to die, and having no idea what to do next. Today,Mmatt is the founder and CEO of Tethr which is an app-based community and well-being platform for men…specifically supporting men with anxiety and depression. Tethr has been featured in the NY Times and Healthline and I personally think it’s an intriguing platform where men around the world can find and support one another in the most challenging of times. IN THIS EPISODE How to know when your drive for high-performance is really rooted in fear and feelings of inadequacy How our competitive environments keep us in constant comparison with other men, judging, pedestaling, subordinating men…all while allowing the chasm between us and other men to deepen The case for allowing your current identity to die so a deeper, stronger and freer part of you can emerge How the most painful part of your journey cannot be circumvented, and how to view it as an essential part of your growth journey An overview of the Tethr app and community and how to get involved RESOURCES: Website: https://www.tethr.men App on Apple: https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/tethr-mens-community/id1508006137 Instagram: @TethrForMen Twitter: @TethrForMen Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tethrformen/ Evryman Retreats: https://evryman.com
