My Biggest Takeaways from reading John Gray's 'Men Are from Mars, Women are from Venus'




There is an affiliate link in this post.

This book ends my dating-relationship jag of books.   It went from '3% Man', 'Models,' 'No More Mr. Nice Guy', 'Way of the Superior Man,' now this.


During the 90s, late nights watching Tony Robbin's infomercials got me into personal development.   I enjoyed listening to his Personal Power audio series, starting(but not finishing)his 'Awaken the Giant Within' book.   Some of the speakers Tony had on his programs where Barbara Deangelis and John Gray.    I read(once again didn’t finish)Mrs. Deangelis book 'How to Make Love All the Time,' and I purchased the audio cassettes of 'Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus.'

In my 20s, getting a girlfriend was one of my highest priorities.   I felt I was incomplete until I can attain this.    I thought if I got into self-development, I could be a great boyfriend.    Around this time I was also heavy into video games and going out dancing on a weekly basis.   Things haven’t changed much since then except, there are no video games now, I do still party but not as often.    Presently I’ve given up on meeting someone, and have relegated myself to paying sex workers whenever I'm feeling horny.

This is against these takeaways, but meeting someone takes a lot of time, work, and resources.    A lot of rejection as well.   Rejection is good.   Great for content especially in the space that I’m working in.   Using sex workers is cheaper than a relationship and buys me more time for anything else.

This early interest in relationships comes up to the surface at times.   I guess it's human nature.   A podcast I listen to on/off is 'One Extraordinary Marriage.'   A great podcast which has tips to have a more fruitful union.   Such as planning sex, who’s turn is it to initiate, placing an overall importance on the couple before the children.   I recommend this podcast.

Reading this book reminded me of some of the lessons I learned when listening to the audio version years ago.   The most significant being the love letter technique.    It made me think back when my mother and ex-girlfriends wrote me letters explaining their feelings at various times.   It was sincere.   I kept those for a period until recently when I started getting rid of things.    That move was inspired by a desire to practice minimalism.

These are five of my most prominent takeaways of John Gray’s 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.'

1. When women are talking about their issues, they don’t want answers.   Men’s initial response when they hear problems is to fix them.    Women want someone to listen and be on their side.   They discharge the pent-up emotion when they talk about their issues.  

2. Men often need time to think and find a solution to problems.   During this time they may pull away for a bit.  Women may interpret this as non-communication and abandonment.      It’s important for women not to chase after men while this is happening.   Men will come back more receptively and loving.

3. Women's emotions are naturally high and low.    Sometimes when love is abundant in a relationship, a woman may discuss old hurts and pains.   When this is happening, she may become very emotional.   It is important to be supportive and empathetic when this is happening.   Telling the woman to ‘snap out of it’ is the wrong thing to do.    A woman must hit her low before she can come back and be her usual self.   As long as the man is there for her, she will bounce back with stronger faith in the relationship.

4. Men hugging women often is huge.   This combined with empathy goes a long way.  

5. The love letter technique.   First write down your anger, fear, sadness from a current situation or past heartache.   Then write a response of what you'd like to hear your partner say back to you.   Finally, share this with your loved one.   It doesn’t always have to be in this order.  You can write the first part read it back to yourself just to get those emotions out.  This exercise will help bring you back to a place where you can be loving, open, receptive.

I like the way Mr. Gray writes.   It's easy to understand.   The previous book I read before this was David Deida’s 'Way of the Superior Man.'   Some of the stuff he wrote about went over my head.   This is the 2nd time I re-visit this book, and I feel it won’t be the last.   Anyone in a relationship reading or listening to this; you should read this book.

Publishing My Own Content-BLOG



Over the last 2-3 years, I've listened to podcasts, watched Youtube videos talking about monetizing one's content.   I couldn't wrap my brain around how I can do this?

One recent morning, it came to me.   I can make books on all this stuff I'm putting out.   I'll compile all the weird stories, biggest takeaways into ebooks, audiobooks, and print.   

A perfect example of lessons learned from failure.   The frustration, time, money spent on Kindle Publishing taught me how to put a book together, rewriting articles, checking for plagiarism, getting covers done, virtual assistants and so on.    

It's funny; I seem to have a cycle.   During the winter season, I tend to get back into Kindle Publishing in some way.   I've written it off before.   Vowed never to go back.   How will it be different this time?

Previously I'd written that I would be putting more of an emphasis on blogging.   Written content I thought I could later turn into book content.    While doing research, I was reminded that Amazon/Kindle would not allow one to upload and try to sell material that is already online.

This discovery made me change up my content strategy.   There will be a massive emphasis on writing.   I will use that written material as scripts for my podcast.   Then, in turn, use that written material as pages for my books.   The Kindle plagiarism check doesn't scrutinize audio(not yet anyway).

Reading Joe Pulizzi's Content Inc. book, he talks about no one wanting to hear your thoughts initially as your building your brand.   Nobody knows you yet; they don't care.    They just want an answer to a problem or to be entertained.   I would go on and on about myself in the podcast.   Moving forward, this material will be the blog stuff(this post included).   

I will include a picture of my content strategy in this post.




Everything is content.   I'd like to find a balance between using everything I consume(TV, music, books, the web)and just enjoying it.    One can never run out of content this way.    My material comes from my spin on whatever it is I'm listening to/watching/reading.   That's what makes it unique, my point of view.   Like a movie review with my thoughts as an example.   You can do the same. 

A notepad and pen or the Notes app on the various Apple devices are always by my side to capture ideas, quotes, thoughts.   
Next, it's writing an article straight out or dictating my thoughts through the Voice Memos app.   Afterwards, I send that recorded audio to a transcription service like Rev.com.   The transcript comes back, I edit that and turn it into an article.   

My goal is to make each book 10,000 words or more.   Book writing is new to me.   This will take a while, especially with the first book.   It should become more straightforward as the process is repeated, like anything else.

This will be(hopefully)a third way to make money.   Work is #1, Ebay #2, Self Publishing #3(fingers crossed).

Will self-publishing work this time?   

The only failure is in not trying.   I heard Chris Jericho say that in an interview with Jim Ross.

Why is making money more than one way significant? 

In this day and age, we should all have more than one way to make money.

Email lists and coaching do not interest me, but I am aware of the importance of an email list.    If you are a blogger, podcaster, how are you making money from your content?   Please comment below.
