As more and more challenges and pressures are put on men today, it becomes increasingly difficult for some to become the men they know they are meant to be. The men they want to be. That is until now with the help of a newly released inspirational book am I that man? How heroes, role models and mentors can shape your life by renowned author, speaker and thought leader, Brian Willis. am I That Man? offers a guide for helping these men set the course for becoming the best they can be and fulfilling their potential as men, sons, husbands and fathers.
Within the pages of this book are stories from 31 well-known and respected authors, sports legends, coaches and more with personal stories of courage, patience and faith. Chapters include Ode to Failure, Your Life is Your Legacy, Dare to be Great, and He Didn’t tell Me How To Live (the Father Factor) among so many others. But what stands out the most is the foreword by Bob Delaney author of Covert and Surviving the Shadows. Delaney’s message inspires and sets the stage for the heart-felt stories of life-lessons; some handed down from father to son, some learned through personal experience.
Another inspiration for the book was Ron Scheidt. Scheidt, like most men, experienced periods of struggle and uncertainty resulting in self-reflection. These reflections ultimately led him to develop a motivational presentation and write an article entitled am I that man? This appears in the book If I Knew Then 2. It has also served as the inspirational theme and title for this book.
In this book, the practical advice from other, real-life men with real-life issues guides the reader through today’s challenges by reminding them to ask themselves the difficult questions, such as “Am I that son that my parents need me to be, that they deserve me to be?” “Am I that man, that brother, that husband, that father, that leader that my family and friends need me to be and deserve me to be?”
Here is just a glimpse of what others are saying, "An absolutely outstanding read! This is no self-help book. This is an incredible book about action. am I that man? is the right book for America right now. I will be buying it by the case to give away to every American I know.” Brad Thor - #1 New York Times bestselling author of BlackList.
Willis is the president of the innovative training company, Winning Mind Training and the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award in addition to being the editor and contributing author for the acclaimed W.I.N Book series. Willis was named Law Officer Trainer of the Year for 2011 and serves as the Deputy Executive Director for the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA).
When asked about this latest book, Willis commented, “I am excited to bring this book to life and share the philosophy behind am I that man? Our goal is to draw on stories of everyday role models, mentors and heroes to provide inspiration and guidance to our young men today.”
