November 2020

Men are about success, and in October 2020 the Legacy Magazine looked deeply into that theme. Now that you have all that success, now what? What is left once you have success for yourself?
Time to broaden your context and consider others and their own success.

Having covered the emotion of anger in March, fear in May, barriers in June, pain and grief in July, forgiveness in August, asking for and getting help in September, and victory and success in October, we take all that process and find ourselves with a need to ENROLL others into our vision, supporting them with their lives, and taking that success to a larger circle. We also see how MDI men hold “enrollment” and the many places this skill can be used for the good of your life an the good of all.
