Step 4: Dig into the 4 Pillars
PILLAR #1 Intellectual Growth
We are forging a community to help us all become better man.
Throughout history, men and women have been expanding knowledge and wisdom within this vast world while drawing from the world’s brightest people like Jesus of Nazareth, Aristotle, Plato, and Augustine. We stand upon the wisdom of the ancients as we improve ourselves, our families and communities.
Intellectual Growth is a major tenet because men need to reach mastery in several areas for maximum effectiveness. Men need to better understand cultural issues, masculine traits, financial trends, leadership development and complicated social issues.
PILLAR #2 Physical Strength
To be the best providers and protectors, we need to have proper physical strength. We aren’t experts in this field, but we will consult experts and gain their opinions to help all of us become more physically capable for the tasks at hand. Jesus likely swung a hammer and maybe you do too? But maybe not. So just in case, we will give some useful tips and WODS (workouts of the day).
Our masculine strength will be used for the service, security and sacrifice of others, so let’s get after it!
PILLAR #3 Spiritual Maturity
Spiritual Maturity brings about lasting change. Behavior modification can bring about temporary change but we are trying to build a more complete man, so the four pillars of A New Kind of Man are based off the perfect archetype of a masculinity, Jesus Christ. A biographer of Jesus once said, “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” (Luke 2:52 NIV)
PILLAR #4 Relational Integrity
Aristotle rightly said, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” A man needs to be able to connect with the people around him. Quality relationships [friendships, dating and marriage] are needed in his journey into manhood. Relational Integrity awakens a man to the depths of himself to help him shed his shadow and live fully alive.
Don’t make friends who you are comfortable to be with. Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up.Thomas J. Watson
