Jack Murphy Syllabus

Welcome to Jack Murphy Live.

We can all relate to pain.  We each go through periods in life where things aren’t where we want them to be.  Maybe you’re breaking up with your girlfriend, or you’ve lost a job. Maybe you’ve found yourself fat and out of shape.  Maybe the world doesn’t make sense anymore.  Maybe you just don’t know where to go next.

Well, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to figure it out by yourself.

Many of us have gone through all these things already.

Some of us have come out the other side.

Several of us have thought deeply about what happened and how we fixed it.

But very few of us have put that all together, written it down and shared it on a blog just for you.

That’s just what I’ve done here.

From love, relationships, sex, career, and family – I share with you my personal story and how I’ve created wisdom from loss. 

What follows is a curriculum of sorts, a series of posts that if read end-to-end will give you a solid beginning on how to be a successful man in today’s world.  

You’ve just discovered a trove of valuable information most men are unaware of.

Take your time.

Who is Jack Murphy?

Me? I’m a father of three.  I’ve been married and divorced.  I’ve woken up after ten years of a fractured and damaged relationship to a world I didn’t recognize.  I was like Rip Van Winkle.  The entire world had changed while I was sleeping.  In the 90’s, we just went to bars and met chicks. “Being yourself” was all you had to do.  But man, how times changed.  When I got divorced in 2009, I was out of sorts, lost, confused.  I had no idea what to do.  So I sat down and figured it out. And figure it out I did.

Now I live with my long-time girlfriend.  She’s 27, sexy, and we have a great life.

It’s full of hot sex, home-cooked dinners, and no drama.

You’ll read all about her if you stick around.

Professionally, I’m an entrepreneur.  I’ve built businesses, buildings, and even communities.

But I didn’t start out as CEO or Executive Director.  No, I hustled my way from stockroom boy, to waiter, to intern, and right up the ladder to being “the man.”

I know what it is like to start from scratch, have it all, lose it, find it again and even repeat that a few times.

“The Comeback” is one of my specialties.

So, what I’m telling you is, I can relate to you wherever you may be.

Maybe you’re in your early 20’s and trying to figure out women, the world, and just what to do with yourself for the first time.

Or maybe you’re later in life, scarred from divorce or a failed relationship, seeking updated information on today’s dating culture.

Or maybe you’re just looking to take an already successful life to the next level.  Either way:

I promise you, there is something here for every man.

Not only do I share my own experiences and personal discovery, but I link to many other books, bloggers, articles, and other useful information as well.  Abundance mentality guides me.  I don’t have to take all the credit.  So I share with you.

Go ahead, click the links.

I know you’ll come back.

Ten’s of thousands of readers have done just that and are already taking control and improving their lives.

I want you to be one of those people, too.

I started this blog as a way for me to process my own experiences and share them with a limited number of people.

Now, it has turned into a community of men seeking to better themselves through introspection and application.

We are not passive bystanders.  We are men of action.  When something needs to be fixed, we make it happen.  We assess, adjust, and reassess as we go.

Autoregulation is fundamental to the individualist male.

You and me, we’re no different.  I’ve just gone through my past, shared my personal experiences, and hopefully turned pain into universal truths.

Don’t take my word for it, here are a few recent comments:

After each article, you’ll find comments and discussion where other men share their experiences. Read each of those as well. Become a part of the community.  Tell us what you think.

I’ll send you the occasional updates and exclusive content – and I’ll never send you any junk, ever.

The Syllabus

I wrote many of the articles on my site based on how I was feeling that day.  Inspiration came randomly, and the articles came out whenever they demanded to be written.

But now, I’ve taken the time to curate some of these posts (there are many many more in the archives) into a logical, coherent list which when read in order, will give you a tremendous education on what it’s like to be a man today.

Read each article.

Click the supporting links I provide.

Read the other authors I suggest.

Then return to this page and pick up where you left off.

If you read this entire list you will find yourself leading your peers in no time.

And that’s all I really want.

Sometimes people ask me, why are you doing this, Jack?  The only answer I can give them it is the honest truth: to help my fellow brothers.  I’m excited you found my blog, I am thankful you’re reading what I’ve written. Now read this list and let’s get going.

Thank you.  Enjoy.
