#143 | The New Model of Masculinity: Clean Anger, Boundaries & Integration with Mark Groves
About This Episode
“Mark Groves is a Human Connection Specialist – an emotional translator, writer, speaker and coach.
Mark had always wondered what separated people with amazing relationships from those who had average ones. Why did some relationships maintain bliss for a lifetime, and others… not so much? Why did some people have the ability to lead thousands, and others couldn’t even lead themselves?
Mark set out to discover the secrets of those who thrive in love and life so he could become one. His research became his life, and he lives everything he learns and writes about. From what Mark has seen and experienced, how we connect to others will be the single greatest predictor of success in every facet of our lives.
Through his work, Mark helps people understand their emotional matrix and how to master themselves and their words. His clients range from individuals and couples, to businesses and leaders.”
“Your partner does not want to be the most important thing in your life, she wants to be the most important person. She doesn’t want to come ahead of your purpose and your work. And if she does, she won’t trust you.”
