About MWOD


How MWOD started

The world is obsessed with comfort, but it's not the ultimate goal, nor is it a means to a fulfilling life. True freedom comes from facing the storms of life and being able to stand.

Men and Women of Discomfort was founded on the idea of embracing voluntary discomfort to prepare for the inevitable challenges that come our way. It's not a program to add to our lives but an operating system that shifts our perspective and helps us move through life. We gain agency, autonomy, and strength, becoming more Strong and Awake for Love's Sake.

Why we exist

MWOD is an invitation to reclaim agency in your life. To find true freedom, we must face the storms of life head-on and be able to stand, to not fall over. As Men and Women of Discomfort, we recognize that how we show up anywhere is how we show up everywhere, and MWOD is a place to show up for yourself.

Embracing voluntary discomfort is not about making life harder for ourselves. It's about revealing gaps that already exist and challenging ourselves, pushing ourselves in a position of strength.

We are MWOD

Proof it works

At MWOD, we believe the only metric that matters is whether or not the program works. More specifically, will it work for you? That's why efficacy is the main thing we obsess about. That's why when we get real testimonials like the one's below, we are are not only encouraged but spurred on to share MWOD with more people around the world.
