Meet some men who are making over their lives!

success_story

An increasing number of men feel disconnected from themselves, other men, and their lives in general. Fred Nehring, Sheldon Wood and the rest of their Life Makeover Group™ are rewriting the rules of being a man, and opening up to incredible changes that can only come from being part of a supportive community..

Q: How did your group start?

A: Fred: I’m a single guy with a few friends and associates, but no one I felt I could really open up to, particularly for the little day-to-day stuff. After attending one of Cheryl’s events and assessing the lack of support in my life, I asked her if there were any Men’s LM groups that I could join. She said, “Why don’t you start one of your own and I’ll support you!” With a little help from her newsletter I got over 100 email responses from men all over the world wanting the same thing I did.

Q: You’re in a “virtual” group meaning you meet over the phone and through e-mail… how do you support each other when you’re not physically together?

A: Sheldon: I think most people have experienced meaningful and emotional long-distance phone calls with family members or friends — our group experience is not so different. It’s true that most of us have never met in person, but we’ve still gotten to know each other to a degree that we talk, share and laugh, and our “meetings” are VERY positive.

Q: What was it like putting yourself out there to start the group?

A: Fred: In some ways it felt risky, and it was a stretch the first couple of times I really shared with the group. Yet in some ways the risks are a little less when using the phone and email for communication 🙂

Q: How has your life changed by being in the group for the last year?

A: Fred: I have learned to truly be honest with myself and with others in the group. Not being happy with my life, I decided to change careers, end a romantic relationship with a woman, and give my vulnerability a true voice. Not an easy task for a man who is expected by society to have it all under control.

Sheldon: The group has been helpful in many ways. It has been great to have a little bi-monthly accountability — I know that every other Monday I’ll be able to report my progress, re-state my goals, get lots of positive reinforcement, etc.

Q: What would you say to encourage other men to become a part of this community and a Life Makeover Group™?

A: Sheldon: We all need a safe place to be vulnerable and honest while sharing with a group of people who have so much in common. Most importantly, I would tell them about how liberating and empowering it has been for me to create this unique bond with other men.
