Tools to help meet your Health Goals

health goalsIt has been 48 days since you decided to take your health goals serious.  How is that coming along?  Most people, by this time, have given up their healthy lifestyle to go with a easier one.  I urge you to keep on track with your health goals to achieve a better and longer life.  There are products out there that are marketed to you to help.  Some of these products are not as good as you would hope they would be.  Hopefully by the end of this show you will have the resources to meet whatever health goal you have set forth for yourself.

I have dug through my gym bag to bring you my personal recommendations.  These are items that I use on a regular, if not daily, basis.  All of these products are linked to the amazon store partnered with Today’s Survival Show.  Please use these links to help out Bob and his efforts.  No extra money will be added to your cart but he will receive a portion of the proceeds.

How To Be More Attractive

be more attractiveBeing attractive means different things to different people.  What is attractive to one person is not so much to another.  This does not give you the excuse to be a slob though.  As Gentlemen we should be cognizant of our style and our image.  We live in a world that is focused on image.  We know this because of advertisements, contests, and the importance of first impressions.  Why not take some time and work on developing your own style and image.

This podcast dives deep into upgrading your style and your image.  There are many different ways that you can change yourself to be more attractive.  I have just found a few to scratch the surface.  If you really want to increase your attractiveness you will need to do a lot work on your behalf.  Listen to other resources and read as much as you can on the topic.  Learn more about you instead of what the celebrities are doing.  On the show today we don’t just hit superficial beauty.  We dive deeper into how to be more attractive on the inside and learn what women really like in men.



How To Be More Attractive

    • Upgrading your style and image
    • How can you be more attractive in the way that you dress
    • What can you do to increase your attractiveness

How Gentlemen Apologize

apologizeAt some point in every mans life there is an opportunity to apologize about something that he has done or not done.  Reguardless of why you are apologizing, you should be able to form an applogy that does not sound condensending to your spouse or friend.  As a Gentleman you have to be prepared to be the guy that can form words that make others feel better about the situation.

I have sat down and hashed out the way that I apologize to my spouse.  When I apologize I make sure that when I do it, it means something.  It is not just a “I’m sorry” and we move on.  As a husband, my partnership with my wife is more important to me than just making a quick sorry plea.

The Gentleman’s Code- Throwback

The Gentlemans code throwbackEvery gentleman needs a code to live by.  This is a gentleman’s code that is the proverbial line drawn in the sand.  The gentleman cannot be pushed further than this line until something has to change.  There also has to be standards instilled in a gentleman that he does not cross or deviate from.  Some call these principals, some call these values, but all can consider it a code.  Whatever you decide to call it, you have to develop your own.

I submit to you today a list that I am going to call the gentleman’s code.  There are 10 rules that I live by every single day and encourage you to do so.  A gentleman should be aware that it is a skill to take away concepts more than anything and a skilled gentleman creates their own code to live by.  Write your own down in a place where you can review them on a daily basis to make sure that you are following them.

Taking Care of Dogs – Mans Best Friend

caring for dogsDogs are truly mans best friend.  They want you when you are away and feel horrible when they know they messed up.  Dogs will, in some cases, give their lives to make sure yours is safe.  Considering that they do so much for us, why don’t we try to do better for them?  Caring for a dog is not rocket surgery but it can get confusing with marketing efforts from companies.  We need to know how to look through the marketing and really learn how to care for our buddies.

Today’s show is about making sure that you know how to take care of dogs.  This goes beyond marketing and quick conversations.  I have dove into the research and pulled from my own personal experiences for this episode.  No brands were mentioned in this show for which brand I personally buy.  If you are interested in knowing exactly what I buy, email me.  This was done so you are encouraged to do your own research and form your own opinions.

I feel I owe you an apology

an apologyOver the past few months my schedule has been getting harder to manage.  With my schedule filling up and responsibilities getting bigger, I am getting inconsistent with my posts.  This is not good for business.  Nor is this good for your trust that I am going to put out quality podcasts.  I aim to explain what is going on today in an apology.  This apology does not come with an “I’m sorry” but with the truth of what is going on and how I am managing it.

This is not an excuse but more of an explanation of what is happening to cause my inconsistencies.  I try to make sure that you have two new podcast episodes every week along with a weekend motivation.  With the set that goal at the first of the year if you remember.  I have fallen behind in my goal and I feel you deserve an apology.  My biggest hope is that you will be patient with my changing world.  With a list of projects and a changing lifestyle in front of me, I am adapting as quickly as possible.  You are getting a front row seat to this change.

4 Dad Projects for Spring

4 dad projects for springBeing a dad is one of the best jobs in the world.  I know this because my dad and my grandfather done such a great job teaching me life skills throughout my childhood.  With spring just around the corner, it is a great time to get prepared for some projects to teach your children from.  Understand that there is a golden window that last a few years that a child wants to learn from you.  They want to be around you and will learn anything you teach them.  This is the best time to do these projects with them.  They will not only learn from you but they will keep that knowledge for the rest of their lives.

I am going to talk about 4 different projects that you can include your children in this spring.  Projects that will teach them about construction, vehicles, and self sufficiency.  While doing these projects, please be safe.  Teaching them the ability to do something is just as important as keeping them alive.  I included in the podcast what I would use for building materials but if you feel that you should use something different, please do so.  I have no formal education about construction, just a lot of projects under my belt.



What are the projects that a dad can do this spring?

  • The basics of building a swingset
  • Planting a garden
  • Rebuilding a vehicle
  • Vehicle maintenance
