Real Men Feel: Ep. 142, Regular Guy Chat with Al

Regular Guy Chat with Al Episode 142, August 6, 2019

Self-described “regular guy,” Al Flemming, joins us to talk about life, fatherhood, happiness and being a man. Al messaged the show about wanting to hear more stories from everyday guys. Guys living extraordinary lives and the struggles they’ve overcome.

“I want to be happy in life. As long as I continue to do that and be a naturally loving person, then I’m a success.” ~ Al Flemming

Al’s message to the show: “I think shows with regular guys -people who don’t have books, clients, websites (or ones that are not updated ) etc.- yet still get up and keep going everyday. Regular guys who have stories that are inspiring because they could just fade into non-existence┬ábut that just keep going. That fascinates me and inspires me. I just wonder why those guys (yes guys like me) are not highlighted. Not everyone’s “greatness” includes books, social media presence, etc.”

Topics and Questions Include:

  • Why did you reach out?
  • Attention versus being of service.
  • Importance of being a dad.
  • Al’s experience as a son.
  • What Al has overcome.
  • How did you learn what it means to be a man?
  • What is a great dad?
  • What does ‘regular guy’ mean to you?
  • Can you share a habit, practice, program, or book that has helped you?
  • Is life easy or hard?
  • What is one thing you wish more men knew?
  • What keeps you up at night?
  • What are you proud of?
