The Better Man Project

by Evan Sanders

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
The Better Man Project is a look at my daily journey towards becoming a better man, as well as a glimpse into the valuable lessons I learn along the way. Several years ago, I sat on the bed in my small dorm room and realized that whatever path I was on was destined for disaster. My life lacked love, passion, and goals that could inspire me to achieve my true potential. I was desperately trying to contain an emotional tornado inside of me, and realized that the damage was reaching a point of irreversibility. The forces of change were knocking on my door, and if that call was left unanswered, my worst nightmare was waiting for me right around the corner. I decided to try something new. The Better Man Project was originally intended to be a 30-day challenge to develop myself into a better man. Well, the project passed 30 days, 60 days, 90 days...and now I stand in front of you - the product of almost 1,000 days of personal cave diving into the depths of my heart - lantern in hand, searching for even more answers. I am not here to give you a formula. I am not here to tell you that I have some secret for how to be happy. Instead, I am here to tell you why you should embark on a journey that will be marked by times of darkness, but that will in the end, result in one thing: light. Each and every one of you will have a different path. No two will be the same, but they will all have something in common: the fact that you will be going against the grain and living a life that you are proud of. You will face your fears by moving against a culture that is designed to groom you to be just like everyone else. But it won’t be easy because you will have to overcome significant obstacles in order to achieve true happiness and realize your dreams. However, when you finally remove can’t from your vocabulary, you will develop into someone who finds motivation and inspiration within in order to create a vibrant future. Love. Passion. Never Quit.
Description
The Better Man Project is a look at my daily journey towards becoming a better man, as well as a glimpse into the valuable lessons I learn along the way. Socrates once said, "True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing." I, in fact, know nothing. But because I know nothing, I have given myself the best opportunity to learn from everything. That is why I am here in front of you today, and that is how The Better Man Project was born. Several years ago, I sat on the bed in my small dorm room and realized that whatever path I was on was destined for disaster. My life lacked love, passion, and goals that could inspire me to achieve my true potential. I was desperately trying to contain an emotional tornado inside of me, and realized that the damage was reaching a point of irreversibility. The forces of change were knocking on my door, and if that call was left unanswered, my worst nightmare was waiting for me right around the corner. I decided to try something new. The Better Man Project was originally intended to be a 30-day challenge to develop myself into a better man. Well, the project passed 30 days, 60 days, 90 days...and now I stand in front of you - the product of almost 1,000 days of personal cave diving into the depths of my heart - lantern in hand, searching for even more answers. I am not here to give you a formula. I am not here to tell you that I have some secret for how to be happy. Instead, I am here to tell you why you should embark on a journey that will be marked by times of darkness, but that will in the end, result in one thing: light. Each and every one of you will have a different path. No two will be the same, but they will all have something in common: the fact that you will be going against the grain and living a life that you are proud of. You will face your fears by moving against a culture that is designed to groom you to be just like everyone else. But it won’t be easy because you will have to overcome significant obstacles in order to achieve true happiness and realize your dreams. However, when you finally remove can’t from your vocabulary, you will develop into someone who finds motivation and inspiration within in order to create a vibrant future. I can tell you that my journey will never end. My life has permanently changed course because of this project and I have truly learned how to be a man. And to all the women out there, my project isn’t just about men’s issues. I am confident that if you join me and open this book, you might just find out how to be a better person as well. I promise you that this is going to be one awesome, wild ride. Love. Passion. Never Quit. "Sanders unlocks the door of each aspect of a man's world as he breaks through the boundaries of life's disappointments, anguish, pain, and hostility. He uncovers the mysteries of love, honesty, integrity and respect. His acute sense of understanding the world around him and his ability to relate to all people enables him to share his philosophies and he gifts his inspiration to us in this book. It is not his full story. It is not the answer. It is the beginning and the now of a great man and his unique insights to how we can all become better every day." - Melissa Reyes "This book is a groundbreaking work that will inspire men and women alike." - endsolitary "I recommend this book highly for anyone that has a dream that they themselves are holding in a mental prison." - teddy3indc "This book is filled with real life events, both good and bad, that have a way of speaking to any audience. It has not only helped me jumpstart a new, more positive way of thinking, but has also allowed me to reflect on certain aspects of my own life that I would not have before reading this." - jg3485
About the author
I am an avid fisherman, a lover of all sports, an aspiring American novelist, a rock climber, a social media nerd, an inventor, a personal development junkie, a reader of all genres, a collector of baseball cards, a developing bodybuilder, an expert organizer, an entrepreneur, a brand builder, a long-boarder, a slight romantic, sometimes an insufferable insomniac, a photographer, an almost-drowning surfer, an ambidextrous bowler, a killer snowboarder, a social Darwinist, an on-call rapper, an explorer, a mildly successful car rebuilder, a reincarnated Robin Hood, a self-certified IKEA furniture assembler, a very amateur long-range rifle marksman, a Pawn Stars enthusiast, an iron-fisted negotiator, a creative thinker, a hard worker, a roofer, a salesman, a Lego architect, a self-proclaimed painter, a creative landscaper, a Renaissance man, and a deep philosophical thinker. I am best at inspiring others to act and have taken that passion and transformed it into a successful blogging career. I have genetic entrepreneurial blood in my body and have followed my father’s footsteps in creating unique startup companies. I enjoy a good glass of scotch. I do not necessarily know where I am going, but I know who I am going to be when I get there. I am a man of unconditional love and fiery passion, and possess a never-quit attitude. I never demand anything out of anyone that I do not demand of myself (honesty, loyalty, respect being a few of the most important), and I strive every day to become a better person. I can grow a full beard and climb trees with ease. I want to make a difference in this world and have people remember me as someone who went out with all engines burning. I will never own a mini-van…ever. I will have a baseball team full of children…and do not think that will impact my decision on the mini-van statement. I will have a white wrap-around porch. I can reel in a 200 lb. halibut in 30 minutes. Spiders scare the hell out of me, and bell peppers make me gag. I have successfully cooked Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for 12. I can bake an assortment of pies and make little children laugh. I have successfully rebuilt pitchers mounds, to only then wreck them by pitching off of them. I magnificently speared a fly to a door by throwing a Phillips screwdriver from 10 ft. away. I am a quote junkie and will randomly recite movie lines or motivational speeches to people who care or care less about what I am currently saying. I am a slight pyromaniac…and have a record of close calls. I collect vinyl records and someday will have a record player to play them on. I often come up with nicknames for those close to me, and they usually resemble animals. If I had to be two movie stars, it would either be Anthony Hopkins or Morgan Freeman. If they had to be under 60, it would either be Brad Pitt or Denzel Washington. I can iron my own shirts, do my own laundry, vacuum, and clean floors with unparalleled precision. My music playlists demand respect. I speak Japanese. I successfully discouraged packs of men from hitting on my sister in Europe…just by the sternness of my jaw. I have sold women’s yoga clothes, am part of the 500 Club, and have broken many stereotypes about white men not being able to jump. I will be real with you no matter what, however I do have a tendency for witty remarks. I have been asked if I have bad days. I drink Guinness and whiskey, can pull off epic dance moves after stretching, and have been called a modern Churchill. Please take a look at my book :) - Evan Sanders
