The Rising Man Podcast

Welcome to “The Rising Man Podcast,” a platform where amazing men from all walks of life come to share their personal stories about the journey from boy to man, the challenges, triumphs, and insights they’ve experienced, and what they’ve learned along the way. Here we dive deep into masculine culture to identify what it really means to be a man in the modern world and to extract tips and tools to help EVERY man rise into greatness and become the man he is destined to be.

Today we welcome Conner Cherland, a master storyteller and adept musician, to the RMP. His unique perspectives on forging willpower and momentum in our lives is a refreshing change of pace from the usual self help messaging. His confident, compassionate, and peaceful style is contagious, so listen in! We break down what it means to be an alpha male, how to tend to a relationship, and why teamwork can radically change our lives.


Show Notes:

  • A relationship is a dance, and an agreement
  • There are 3 parties in the relationship - the two humans and the relationship itself. The relationship needs to come FIRST
  • Why overcoming resistance sucks at the beginning, but pays off in the long run
  • Becoming a man doesn’t mean you need to give up your leisurely hobbies, but corralling them and bringing intentionality to them is necessary.
  • Willpower is a muscle, and will atrophy if not used.
  • Why a sense of teamwork helps facilitate growth in terms of personal accountability and responsibility.
  • How music can contribute to our path of discovery, healing, and expression. 
  • Why doing our best IS ENOUGH
  • If we don’t make a choice, we fail by default. 
  • What makes a man alpha or beta?
