The opinions expressed by the entrepreneur's contributors are their own.
Am I enough do I have what it takes? How do you convey and multiply trust and trustworthiness in all areas of your life as a man? And how often have you reinvented yourself in the course of your life and career? Could it be your marriages, your jobs, maybe the companies you started and sold?
The University of Warwick studied 1.3 million adults in 51 countries and found a measurable decline in happiness by the age of 40. The research found that midlife divorce rates in the United States have doubled since the 1990s. No wonder it was called the dark night of the soul. It is when you hit a wall in your career and business, your marriage, your life, your relationship with your children, and even your body start to change.

Todd Isberner guides men who are looking for a practical blueprint to master four basic cornerstones of life – faith, family fitness, and finances – in order to build purposeful and satisfying lives.
Isberner was there and did that. He is the bestselling author of What Every Man Needs to Know, winner of the Christian Music Broadcasters Industry Achievement Award, and has raised funds for organizations such as K-Love Radio Network, Compassion International, the Salvation Army, Reach Beyond Global Media and radio networks in England, Australia and New Zealand.
Nowadays his main focus is to give back and make a positive impact.
From Isber's point of view, the biggest problem men face today is an identity crisis. He believes that they are becoming increasingly confused about who to be and what their role and purpose is. The certainty and clarity of how a man is wired dissolves in the dark.
Isberner stands up defiantly and says: “No! Reclaim who you are. “We work in the fullness of our manhood and that is the path to not only happiness and success in life, but also to true contribution and the betterment of others. There are far too many men out there who were designed as eagles and fly, says Isberner, but instead they scratch and peck like chickens.
His mission is simple: help men rediscover who they are, what role they play, how to be successful and fulfilled, and convince them that they actually have what it takes and that they are more than enough.
Isberner was educated in the school of hard blows. He grew up in a small town in Minnesota; He and his siblings had a great mother and father whom they raised in the Catholic Church. From childhood he thought that he would serve the priesthood – that is, through ninth grade. At the end of that school year, he was furthest away from becoming a priest.

He discovered girls, parties, and athletics and eventually began a 10 year road of rebellion and bad choices that had some tremendous consequences, including getting married at a young age, being a lousy husband, and losing his wife to another man. It devastated him.
He had the feeling that his face was literally in the mud, but it had to be because that was the only way he could look up. When he finally looked up he called out to God and through a number of circumstances he had a spiritual conversion. It was a defining moment in his life.
From that point on, things started to change. He was a single father who raised two young daughters, attended seminar, and started a business. He decided to use his gifts to serve others and focused his business on helping organizations in need of funding. He and his team became experts in the nonprofit world. After 42 years of this very fulfilling job, he sold the company and developed his Cornerstone system, a blueprint for success.
Todd Isberner's cornerstone system
Faith: Isberner believes that faith is the glue that holds everything together. People get nervous when they talk about God, but Todd believes that spiritual growth is a life-long journey and that our Creator made you because He loves you and wanted you here at this time and place in history.
Family: every man is a son. Many are also husbands, ex-husbands, husbands and fathers. The family needs to be the safe place where you are rewarded with feelings of love, respect, safety, and guidance. Always put the needs of your family and wife before your own. Isberner suggests that men use the 'no resistance' button. It's very simple … she's always right, period. Even if you are right and you know you are right, let them be right. By doing this, you show her respect, that her opinion is valued, and that you don't control her. Your relationship will experience incredible respect and freedom through this approach.
Fitness: Two things that make you fit: know what you want and why you want it. One of the benefits of participating in a fitness program is that you strengthen your mind every time you tell your body what to do when it is in discomfort or pain. You develop a stronger mind as you develop a strong body.
Finance: You have a relationship with money just like you have a relationship with your family. What you think of money defines who you are, but your financial statements are not proof of your worth. Money doesn't prove your true success in life – unless that is the meaning you give it. Learning how to better manage your money with specific intent will free you from money tangles so that you can be defined who you are, not what you have.
So if you ask … who am I really? How am I wired? Do I have what it takes to be the man I am supposed to be? Am I fulfilling this purpose and role in life? If these questions arise and you are hungry for something more, start a conversation with Todd Isberner.
The reality is that you have more in you than you think. Working with a trusted advisor can help you unlock that potential for impact.
