Rocky Garza knows first hand how difficult it can be to identify what makes us unique having moved 10 times during childhood. Caught in insecurities and fears, looking outward he was never able to see his real value or worth. That is until he took a step back and had a long hard look at WHO he was, not just WHAT he did.
Over the past 15 years, Rocky has walked alongside thousands of individuals at Sky Ranch Summer Camp as Director and counseled and supported hundreds while on the pastoral staff at Chase Oaks Church. Now, as a top keynote speaker and culture consultant, he has taken thousands through the Identity Mapping™ process. As a result, they have all been led to understand the most vivid picture of who they are and how they operate best as individuals.
In this episode, we discuss:
The purpose of identity
The beauty of different perspectives
The pressure that society’s definition of “success” has placed on men, causing them to abandon themselves
The importance of men creating space for one another to share their internal dialogue
And what we can do to support and empower our boys and men.
Rocky leads a group called Wiser Sons for men to show up and be seen.
I love Rocky’s advice to be willing to put in the work to know and love yourself, and when you look in the mirror, believe what you see is good.
