I often lack CLARITY and FOCUS
I’m merely content with life, or even, DISSATISFIED
I don't feel FULFILLED
I lack a sense of PURPOSE
Our human history, culture and traditions have led to most men learning to wear masks of almost limitless strength, making it hard for them to accept their own vulnerability.
Why do men need to be vulnerable, you may ask? Most men cringe at the very thought of the word "vulnerability". This is because to experience life fully and find fulfilment, we need courage. Courage is about doing what feels right, but it is also very uncomfortable. It's about showing up for yourself and others when the outcome is unknown or uncertain. It involves showing one's imperfections and insecurities, and risking being judged for that reason, criticised, or even rejected. Courage and vulnerability are especially relevant in roles such as leadership, or parenting, and in professional and personal relationships.
Many a man is still reluctant to take off his mask for fear of being perceived as weak, or not "manly" enough.
To feel fulfilled and happy in life, we need to be able to communicate our feelings, thoughts, emotions and needs, as this is what builds a connection with others. And yes, this involves feeling vulnerable.
Emotions are data which is used to read what's happening with us, others, and what we or others may need.
95% of the decisions we make is based on our emotions - mainly, fear and desire. We must learn to be consistently in touch with them and understand their language, so that we can utilise them, or move past them, and make the right decisions for us and our circumstances.
Healthy emotions are like a healthy body. And, in truth, we need them both. Neglecting our physical health drains our energy and affects our mental health. Psychosomatic symptoms will occur if we exhaust our body.
Where to start learning the language of emotions?
The first step is to observe and acknowledge that we have run into a challenge, and perhaps talk it through with someone we trust who won’t judge us. The crux of the matter is that men still rarely talk about what bothers them and what they fear, and they may end up living out of these states. It takes emotional intelligence to break the silence and create a clear and helpful language around emotions, including how to ask for help when we struggle.
The Kaizen Man programme (self-leadership for men) helps you master self-awareness, social awareness, manage your emotions, influence others, and be flexible - all with a dose of optimism.
