Life Coach Atlanta Case Study Dealing With Change

By | Free Life Coaching, Online Life Coach Case Studies

The recent upheaval with Peyton Manning being traded by the Indianapolis Colts left many shocked. Although some people saw it coming, there were others including Payton who may have not.

What do we do when change is around this? How do we deal with change? It’s often said that the mark of a person is not how they deal with life, but how they deal with what life brings them.

Part 2 – Online Coaching Around Manhood and Defining It For Ourselves

Defining Manhood For Ourselves – Life Coaching Exercise

Hi everyone. Here’s the 2nd part of our series on manhood and defining masculinity. If you haven’t reviewed part 1 of this series, you can find it here.

In our 1st in part 1 of this blog post we looked at manhood, how it’s defined, how we define it for ourselves, some of the products that we use and we used Allen Iverson as an example. We talked about some of his losses and his successes.

We looked at several things including the notion held by Dr. Joseph Stolewell that  manhood is running on 3 pistons -pride, passion, and pleasure.

As we wrap up this conversation on manhood and masculinity, we want to go deeper into you where we are and how we can be the man that we want to be. We must deal with our past, our pain, pride and how we walked in the world.


In some ways, this lesson is about stopping the bleeding. We have to deal with how we’ve been socialized as boys who grew up to be men. We have to deal with the messages that we were given, how we were told to behave, and how we were told to walk in the world.

My goal in this lesson is to help us stop the bleeding. Let’s stop walking in our lives in pain and not dealing with our shame or inadequacies.

When the living someone else’s dream or you just haven’t let yourself off the hook for something that happened in your past, today is the day you can stop the bleeding. Stop the bleeding my friend.



Part 1 – Coaching Around Manhood

By | Atlanta Life Coach Online, Free Life Coaching

As someone passionate about life coaching and about where I live work play it’s not often that I can turn off the lenses and the way in which I see the world.


So recently in the media, there’s been a lot of talk about Allen Iverson. Allen Iverson is probably one of the most notarized basketball players in our time. He had a long career with the Philadelphia 76ers, was named the most valuable player for the 2000 to 2001 season and led his team to the 2001 NBA finals the same year.


Iverson represented the United States at the 2004 Summer Olympics, winning the bronze medal. He also played for the Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons and the Memphis Grizzlies, before returning to the 76ers for part of the 2009-2010 season.

It is actually rated the 5th greatest NBA shooting guard of all time at ESPN in 2008.

Much of the press that Iverson has gotten lately has not been pleasant, however. There’ve been talks of domestic disturbances, bankruptcy, and just a lot of the kinds of press you don’t want.

As a life coach, based here in Atlanta, I couldn’t help but look for the lessons in everything that’s been reported by the media in taking place.

So so I created a two-part series just talking about manhood, defining what it looks like, how do we break out of those molds, and some of the takeaways for us is man as for and for those who care about men.

Masculinity and our traditional definitions of it come from the media, our families, and a host of different sources. But how we truly define manhood is up to us.

I hope you enjoy these next couple of posts and share with me what your definition of manhood is and how we can all become better stewards of the world around us.
