Anxiousness, depression, suicide. These are all growing trends with men. And, it’s unfortunate because, with all we know about men’s health (physical, mental, and emotional), why is it that so many of us seem to be struggling now more than ever? Isolation, loneliness, loss of ambition, lack of clarity and goals all contribute to the epidemic that seems to be plaguing so many men.
It doesn’t have to be this way. And, my good friend and author of Building a Non-Anxious Life, John Delony, is here today to tell us how to make it so. We talk about burnout, stress, and numbing behavior, unpacking what value you truly add to the people you care about, how to apply these principles in reality (and practically), why we don’t have “maps” for every situation we encounter and what to do about it, and overcoming a past of extreme guilt and shame for past behavior.
“If you’re trying to find your purpose, keep showing up.” Tweet That— Dr. John Delony
Dr. John Delony
My guest today is my good friend, Dr. John Delony. He says his official title is, “mental health expert,” but all that means is he “gets the privilege of walking people through the tough stuff.”
With a degree from Harvard, including two PhDs along the way, and now an integral part of the Ramsey Solutions team, John is bringing the message of empowerment to the masses in a way that men can actually consume and digest.
He is also the author of his latest book, Building a Non-Anxious Life, and his lessons, videos, and messages have been a powerful source of growth in my own personal life.
Gentlemen, enjoy this podcast with one of my favorite people on the planet. Dr. John Delony.

In his book, The War of Art, Steven Pressfield introduces us to the concept of “resistance” that gets in the way of the results we desire. I’ve found this phenomenon to be so true in my own personal life from an unexpected major expense as soon as I pay off debt, to an injury as I’m finally on the path to consistent physical health improvement, to a response to a global pandemic that shuts down the economy when my business is firing on all cylinders.
It’s not a question of if something will derail you but when. And, if you don’t have a plan to deal with it, it’s going to knock you off your feet. That’s why it so crucial you develop a plan to not only account for setbacks but keep you on the path you desire.
