Life can often feel like a cage fight. Punches fly at us from every angle. We’re swept off of our feet and tackled to the ground. Sometimes we’re straight up knocked out. And if we aren’t prepared to battle, we might never get back up. Today’s guest is MMA fighter Josh Tyler. He is also the co-founder of Savage Gentleman, a retail brand and ethos that believes that men are both savages and gentlemen. Josh is here to reveal his secret to remaining calm in the chaos of the cage. He tells us how to employ emotional intelligence, communication, and self-awareness in a masculine way. Josh also talks about how he’s applied what he’s learned as an MMA fighter to family life. "The world is full of savages and gentlemen. Rare is it to find a man who can be both."

If you were to leave the world right now, what would you want your kids to know? What would you tell them about the way you feel? What advice would you give to take them through the rest of their lives? Today we talk about the ultimate gift to leave behind for your kids. Blake Brewer lost his dad in a tragic accident when he was nineteen. Their relationship was cut short, but during the heartbreak and grief, Blake’s mom handed him a letter that his father had written to him. This legacy letter not only helped Blake cope with the loss, it also made it possible for him to take his father’s words with him throughout the rest of his adult life. In honor of his father and the powerful gift he left behind, Blake Brewer is on a mission to help 1 million dads write at least one meaningful, heartfelt letter to their children with the Legacy Letter Challenge. Blake knows that writing a legacy letter is a huge undertaking. What do you say? How do you say it? He talks about how to compose a legacy letter and how its effects will ripple through generations to come.

Today we talk about how to become a patient father. The Dad Edge started on one of the worst nights of my life as a dad. I lost my patience and did something I regret to this day. I didn’t grow up with my dad in the picture, and the men in my life were not good father figures to me. I was raised in an uncertain, sometimes abusive, alcohol-ridden household. When I became a parent, I didn’t have a clue. All I knew is what I didn’t want to do, but that wasn’t enough. Losing our temper does not mean that we are bad, hopeless people. We are only lacking the skills to talk ourselves down so that we can respond instead of reacting to the daily challenges of fatherhood. In this show, I give you a toolbox of strategies that you can use to understand the triggers, notice the signs, and disarm the bomb before it goes off.

What would your world look like if you were a cool and confident leader? What if you could implement an environment of emotional awareness, problem-solving, and a never quit attitude in your work, home, and on the battlefield of life? Errol Doebler is a former Navy SEAL, FBI Special Agent, and an elite executive consultant. He believes that the same leadership applied during the chaos on the battlefield is the same leadership that should be applied in business and at home. No matter how you’ve approached life so far, leadership is a skill that can be learned. Errol reveals the exact methodology you need  to transform yourself into an empathetic and wise leader, living with intention in everything you do.

Let’s get real. It’s been hard to stay optimistic in these chaotic times and pretending everything is going to be okay is not going to solve our problems. But when we practice realistic positivity, we become more effective in our lives and create a ripple effect in the world around us. Today’s guest is Christopher Wirth. He is the host of the No Quit Living podcast and the author of The Positivity Tribe. He talks about how positivity really works and gives us tactics to add more realistic positivity in our lives. He teaches us how to eliminate negative people in our circle and surround ourselves with a positivity tribe. Christopher also shows us how one act of positivity, one person at a time, will help you become a happier and more effective man, husband, and father.   For the show notes and exclusive links mentioned in this episode go to gooddadproject.com/thursday233. ———— Join the Free Dad Edge Facebook Group at gooddadproject.com/group.

Why is it so hard to make a marriage work? And is it too late to fix your unhappy marriage? If you’re struggling in your marriage, you’re not alone. About 50% of marriages end in divorce, but staying in a toxic marriage can be even worse. Today we have husband and wife team Seth and Melanie Studley on the show. They are the creators of the Anatomy of Marriage podcast and app, and they coach couples back to sane and happy marriages. It’s hard to believe that not long ago, Seth and Melanie’s marriage was a complete train wreck. How did they fix their impossible marriage? The Studley’s talk about how taking personal accountability and extreme ownership is the first step to healing a relationship. They reveal how escaping with porn, alcohol, or other distractions are not the issue, but the symptom of an underlying complication that's not being addressed. They also explain how to stop fighting and start solving problems. Don’t waste another day being miserable and frustrated. Start fixing your unhappy marriage right now!

Are you white-knuckling it through your marriage? Sometimes the relationship with our spouse gets off track and it seems beyond repair. We wonder how long we can hold on, but it’s not because the marriage is hopeless. It’s that we don’t possess the right tools to make it work. Today’s guest is Seth Studley, the other half of The Anatomy of Marriage podcast and app for couples. If you listened to the show with his wife Melanie, you’ll remember that their marriage was so bad that she ended up giving him a black eye. Seth is a Licensed Family Therapist and he gives us the man’s perspective on marriage. He tells us the signs that his relationship was headed for disaster, how it totally derailed, and the emotional labor he had to do to piece it back together. For those men who are tired of fighting their way through marriage, this show is a game changer. Listen now or download for later!

Another great episode! I have teens boys and have been thinking of ways to bring practical math or business situations to them. Abeka Comsumer Math was one avenue to assist with financial knowledge for the real world.

The Dad Edge Podcast is an amazing podcast. Each week Larry brings a variety of content, from big names to a Q&A to interviews with fathers like you had me who are doing the work to change their lives. For me, this podcast combined with the online community that Larry has established has been a huge catalyst for my growth as a man, husband, and father. If you're looking to be better in those areas, Larry's podcast is a great place to start.

Question. In this episode, Dr. Corey mentions "leading" your spouse and family. He uses an example, something like, When she asks 'Where do you want to go for dinner?'...HAVE AN ANSWER. My question is...When you give an answer and lead, why is there a discussion? Example...No, not Italian! I'm not in the mood for Italian. What's the point of leading and making a decision if its constantly up for debate? What am I missing?

Hey just heard my first Dad's Edge Podcast ... I am very impressed, and I would definitely like to link up with your guest on the Sex Addiction episode. This is a unique way of conversing dark issues that plague most men. Please keep up the great work, you don't know how many random lives you are touching.
