Day 35 — No More Mr. Nice Guy

This is a LIVE case study where I am documenting my journey to becoming a highly paid marketing consultant by blogging everyday for 50 consecutive days. It’s called “50 Days to Freedom: My Journey to 5 Figures in 50 Days“. At the end of the post, you will find links to all the previous posts.

It’s been 17 years since I graduated high school.

In the first 10 years since leaving Brighton High School, I read a handful of books. Most were required in college, and a select few I actually wanted to read.

Reading was just not my thing.

Ironically, it was a book, Crush It: Why NOW is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion by Mr. Gary Vaynerchuk that introduced me into the world of entrepreneurship in early 2010.

I am now obsessed with books.

A habit of mine is to read 2 books per month. I am constantly on the lookout for other books to read & learn from.

I am a part of quite a few Facebook groups and one of them is called Order of Man. In this group, Ryan, the owner, has a podcast where he interviews the world’s best men. Recently he interviewed (listen here) a man by the name of Robert Glover, who wrote a book titled No More Mr. Nice Guy.

A lot of the guys in the Facebook group have been absolutely raving about the book. It seems there is a daily post in the group with guys sharing their insights from the book, how eye-opening it is, and what a phenomenal book it is.

So I picked up a copy yesterday, and started reading it. Another book that is extremely hard to put down, and found myself nodding my head in agreement often in the first 34 pages.

It’s a book that’s been speaking to my soul with — how I was raised, how I treat others, why I do/think what I do, what holds me back and patterns in my relationships.

It should be required reading for every man on the planet.

It’s also an excellent read for any parent who has a son.
