The life story of Professor Gregory W. Slayton is a story that is hard to believe. It is the story of how rejection turned into acceptance and led to the creation of a legacy that still looks impossible. You will be inspired and encouraged, guaranteed.
Did you ever just think you would naturally be successful at life. That you would just work it all out as you went along? But somehow it hasn’t worked out that way, and now you are not the man you want to be … and your life is not the life you thought you’d have?
Success doesn’t just happen, and life does not allow us to go back.
But we can choose how we go forward.
Real Men 24/7 is a global movement of men who desire success in the areas of life that they care deeply about.
We partner with men who are lonely, living with some kind of failure, discouraged or just plain stuck. We partner with you to connect with other men who understand and care; to help you move on from past failures, to be encouraged to persevere, and to discover your very next step. The goal we seek is for you to become extraordinarily successful in the areas of life that really matter to you.
In case you missed that …
Our goal is for you to become extraordinarily successful in the ares of life that really matter
All men are different, so we do not push any single life purpose, but we encourage and equip you to discover your unique purpose within the constructs of what is true, good and honorable.
The primary values contributors to Real Men 24/7 apply are:
Respect. Others are to be respected. Freedom of speech is encouraged when balanced with respect. We expect men to disagree because the issues we face in the world are complex; but disagreement is to be treated with a view to seeking truth to aid their own lives or the lives of others, not as a means of puffing up, scoring points, or pushing an agenda. Others are to be respected and we are to understand the distinction between the person and the views they may hold.
Responsibility. We take responsibility for our attitudes, actions, our thoughts, feelings, and our words. They are our own responsibility and we will not shift blame on to others for them, regardless of the provocation. We will accept that positive or negative consequences may come from the choices we make, because we choose our actions and not the outcomes.
Leadership Mastery. As men, we are leaders. Good or bad, we cannot avoid and abdicate our responsibility to be a positive influence on those who we have the responsibility to lead. We believe personal leadership mastery precedes effective leadership of others.
Integrity. We will be men who aim to be honest with ourselves, with God and with others. We will never purposely deceive others for personal gain or dishonest purposes. We will make the hard choices to be real with ourselves and others.
Truth. While grey areas exist due to the complexities of modern life, we believe in absolute truth in the foundational areas of a man’s life. We will stand firm for truth when necessary, and when we speak truth, we will do so with love, compassion and without judgment. We believe the 66 books of the Holy Bible convey God’s blueprint for mankind to understand truth.
Community. We understand that no man who is an island is a Real Man. We recognize we need others and others need us, whether we currently have our lives where we want them to be or not. Every man is on a journey, and we must overcome any desire to walk that journey alone. We will aim to become givers and not takers, and servants of others rather than masters over them.
