Regret is often used to self-sabotage and retreat into sorrow and victimization. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, regret can be leveraged as a powerful tool to accomplish your most challenging objectives moving forward. Unfortunately, too many men wallow in regret and defeat instead of learning how to tap into their massive and almost unlimited potential.
Today, I am joined by threepeat guest, Jon Acuff, to talk about regret, potential, goal planning, and success. We discuss pursuing small versus large goals, the power of becoming what Jon calls a, “handle maker,” using discernment with regards to the self-development information we consume, the proper response to the, “must-be-nice,” crowd, why you should avoid calling your problems, your problems, and so much more.
“Self-awareness is a superpower.” Tweet That— Jon Acuff

As a public speaker, he’s met thousands of people and presented at some of the largest organizations in the world including, FedEx, Nissan, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, Chick-Fil-A, and Nokia to name a few.

Jon has been a huge personal inspiration for me, especially in the early years of launching Order of Man and I’m honored to call him a guest and friend.

Gents, I just want to take a step away from our call very briefly and tell you thank you for your continued support in the battle to reclaim masculinity. Once platform that is growing faster than just about any other platform right now is YouTube. And, again, I want to thank you for tuning into what we’re doing and, most importantly, applying the information my guests and I share.
If you want to consume this content in not just audio by see my face as well as my guests’ face, I’d encourage you too to follow and subscribe on YouTube. Despite their best efforts, we are picking up traction and I need your help in continuing and broadening this mission on every platform we can.
YouTube is a great place to do that. And, if you like to watch our interviews on video, I’d also encourage you to check out Rumble for the same conversation if you’d rather watch from a provider that doesn’t hate our guts and hate masculinity.
