I think it’s safe to assume all of us have ambitions for the future. You wouldn’t be listening to this podcast if that wasn’t the case. Unfortunately, we have a tendency of getting in our own way and sabotaging ourselves in the pursuit of those ambitions.
Today, I am joined by New York Times Bestselling Author and repeat guest, Gary John Bishop, to talk about how hardwired into us the self-sabotage really is, what the three greatest saboteurs are, how to balance certainty and aspirations, the myth of truth, and how to finally end self-sabotage.

Today, I am joined by New York Times Best Selling Author, Gary John Bishop for our second discussion regarding his second book, Stop Doing That Shit.
Gary is a personal development expert and has received a lot of attention over the past several years for his unique approach to self-help and his ability to cut to the heart of matters without a lot of B.S.
His first book, UnFu*k Yourself, has sold nearly 1,000,000 copies and is a testament to the fact that people are tired of the motivational, rah-rah, self-help space that has left people informed but not any further down the path to their objectives.

Along the lines of self-help, I think many of us have seen where it falls short and how so many men who have a desire to improve themselves never really do.
That’s why, when I founded Order of Man, it was always my intention to bridge the gap between what we know and what we do. And, that is where our exclusive brotherhood of men comes into play.
It’s really not enough to know you want to improve and then go at it alone. You need two things: a framework and a network. A framework to tap into a proven strategy that will help you become an optimized man and a network of men who are on the same path (and further down it) to assist along the way.
