I want to share with you a quote I discovered long ago and have never forgotten.
Moms turn babies into boys. Dads turn boys into men.
From the moment my son was born, I knew that it was my responsibility and mission in life to be a role model for him.
At a young age, I showed him how to be chivalrous like opening doors for my wife Diana.
Teaching him how to be a protector and watch over his little sister.
And letting him know the importance of giving a firm handshake when meeting someone.
Helping him understand the duties and responsibilities of what it meant to be a man.
Throughout history, it has been the role of men to teach boys to become strong, capable men.
That is our role as dads, uncles, and older brothers.
In peacetime, a man must be a servant, providing for and protecting his family.
In wartime, he must be a savage warrior, standing in the gap between his family and danger.
Today these rites of passage are all but non-existent – part of the reason why I created the Squire Program.
And over the past two decades, masculinity has been villainized…
The media, schools, and government have tried to neuter men.
The media is trying to tell us how to act.
The schools are trying to tell us how to feel.
And the government is trying to tell us what we can and can’t do.
They are painting us to be toxic and forcing the narrative that men should be soft, weak, and docile.
But now we are starting to see this narrative questioned and we’re seeing a reawakening of masculinity – AND IT’S F#CKING BEAUTIFUL!
The opposition doesn’t want to see us take back our manhood because they know we are the only thing standing between them and absolute power.
This is why I’m so passionate about helping men reawaken their masculinity by finding their purpose and meaning in life through the Modern Day Knight Project.
So that they can show up as the father, husband, mentor, and servant leader they know deep down their meant to be.
As men it’s our responsibility and our duty to be confident, capable, courageous, and always prepared.
So that we can raise and mentor the next generation of confident young men and future leaders.
After seeing hundreds of men go through the Modern Day Knight Project I can tell you now more than ever we must be purpose driven men.
Men who are strong enough to speak our minds.
Men who are brave enough to stand in the gap and face those looking to silence us.
Men who are proud enough to stand up for what they believe in.
Men who are called to be servant leaders for their families and communities.
This is the role of a man today – not just in America, but all over the world!
