What do the longest-living and most joyous people in the world have in common? They all share one common trait: a sense of community. When we have a tribe to lean on, it gives us a sense of belonging, connection, and worth outside of ourselves that can open up a wealth of possibilities for us.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru welcomes his Man Morning group back for a third episode. This time Dhru sits down with Antonio Neves, Mark Lebowitz, and Adam Cobb to talk about the life-changing force of community and how investing time, effort, and energy into your friendships can bring newfound joy and perspective into your career, marriage, and other relationships.
Dhru and the guys also talk about heartbreaking losses in the entertainment industry and why we need to make checking in on our “strong friends” a priority. They also talk about the power of maintaining friendships while navigating life changes, new relationships, and moving farther away. Dhru, Antonio, Mark, and Adam are firm believers in open and honest conversation, an area where men tend to struggle the most, and a strong sense of community, brotherhood, or sisterhood can be an amazing way to get there.
