When it comes to committing to our goals, we often let ourselves down. We’ll sleep in instead of getting that workout in. We’ll give in to that junk food or extra beer. We’ll put off our big dreams for another day. No one will know that we didn’t follow through. But if we have to answer to someone else, the whole game changes. Today we talk about how you can start reaching your goals with an accountability partner.
The Dad Edge Summit 2019 will be held in St. Louis June 5th-8th. Today I’m joined by my two facilitators for The Dad Edge Summit live event, Jason MacKenzie and Jeff Bouwman. We recorded this episode live in The Dad Edge Mastermind community. The men on online were not only able to listen but also interact with us on the podcast. Listen to why The Dad Edge Summit is the ultimate personal development event for dads!
Alcohol has affected everyone in some way. We drink to reduce stress, to be more social in social settings, and to reward ourselves after a long, hard day at work. But what if drinking is actually bringing more stress into our lives? What if it’s causing us to miss business opportunities and is harming our relationships? You’ll discover amazing insights into these questions in today’s podcast as I celebrate going one year without drinking by having a conversation with three special guests: Shane Ramer (That Sober Guy), Ruari Fairbairns (One Year No Beer), and Jason MacKenzie (The Book of Open).
Jason Mackenzie drank for a long time. He drank to cope with his wife’s battle with bipolar disorder. He drank to cope with her suicide. He drank for years afterwards so he didn’t have to grieve her death. And he drank so he didn’t have to try to be the man his heart knew he could be. Jason Mackenzie submitted this article to the Good Dad Project from his own blog, The Book of Open. I have to tell you, he really opens up his world with this article. It’s incredibly impactful. Sit back, hold on tight…this article is a game changer.
