Welcome to “Redefining Manhood: Part 2 – Purpose Driven”.
What is a man’s purpose in these modern times?
Men are getting mixed messages.
Are we supposed to be a feminist believe in complete equality, or chivalrous and open doors for women. Is it okay to like sports and hang out with the guys, or are we supposed to spend all our free time with our family being the model husband and father? Are we supposed to be the main financial provider, work hard and climb the corporate ladder, or share equally in all household and financial responsibilities with our spouse? Are we supposed to share our feelings completely, or “man-up” by being tough and a women’s “knight in shining armour”?
A sense of unease is growing with many men – I was one of them – a feeling of being a bit lost, confused, stuck, or that something is missing.
On top of the mixed societal messages, men are also inundated with the idea that we’re supposed to be “finding our purpose” – the new self-help buzz phrase. What’s your purpose in life? You know, that great big thing that you’re supposed to do so you don’t have any regrets before you die? Yeah, that one.
Well I’m here to tell you that not all of us have a great-big-world-changing-purpose, and maybe, you can stop searching for it.
Instead, perhaps we all have the same purpose, and it might not be what you think.

I write to inspire men to greater self-awareness, to make better choices and create a better life.
