No 1. CHANGE HIS OUTLOOK & YOU WILL CHANGE HIS EMOTIONAL HEALTH:
Does your son feel like the world is out to get him or that nothing goes his way? Has he become ungrateful, unappreciative, and entitled? How he looks at life will ultimately determine how he feels. Is there any wonder why the happiest people on Earth are also those who show the most gratitude? With some professional coaching coupled with a few lifestyle changes, Forte Strong can help your son see the glass as half-full instead of half-empty. Before long that glass which was once empty is overflowing and life takes on a whole new meaning and purpose.
No 2. GIVE HIM THE CONFIDENCE HE NEEDS TO RE-ENGAGE IN LIFE:
Does your son start his day at 3 pm? Do you see your son’s future passing him by? Does he feel anxious about doing something new or unfamiliar? Would he rather stay in his room than venture outside? Let me ask you a question. Where would your son’s feet take him if he knew you couldn’t fail? With the largest support network in the industry of over 15 Mentors and 30 Advisors, there’s no way he can lose! With a wealth of resources coupled with our tailored one on one personalized approach… opportunities that he once thought impossible come to life.

At Forte Strong he won’t be sitting around waiting for things to happen… he’ll make them happen! Learn more about how we do it.
No 3. REIGNITE HIS PASSION FOR LEARNING:
Does college bore your son to death? Does he find himself in class wishing he was somewhere else, doing something else? Was his college experience something he’d rather leave behind and forget? There once was a time when each of us saw learning as an adventure… we couldn’t wait to explore all the wonders the world had to offer. This was also a time when we made the most mistakes and yet at the same time understood that these mistakes were a vital part of the adventure itself, that without them life would be dull, boring, and mundane. The truth is “Learning is synonymous with Mistakes!” So what happened? Why are so many young men failing out of college vowing never to return? Because they see mistakes as ‘failures’ instead of learning opportunities, as something to be avoided rather than embraced. As a result a generation of young men are scared to learn, scared to get a job and scared to leave home. Forte Strong still believes learning is an adventure, which is why our experiential education model is the very keystone of what we do, where making mistakes is part of the adventure!
No 4. GET HIM OFF THE COUCH & INTO THE GYM:
Has your son tried to get in shape in the past but didn’t have the motivation to follow through and eventually gave up after just a few days? Well, it takes more than a few scoops of protein powder to make it happen. It takes persistent, experience and discipline. Does he not have any? That’s ok… he can borrow some from our certified personal trainer who can help him see the part of him he never thought existed. With a little perseverance, some perspiration and a personal plan specifically tailored for him, he’ll gain some serious confidence while losing some weight. Don’t like the gym? No problem… with hundreds of unforgettable Forte Strong activities, treks, and expeditions, getting in shape takes on a whole new meaning. So what is he waiting for… find out how Forte Strong can strengthen both his mind, body and spirit.
No 5. TEACH HIM HOW TO BUY, COOK & EAT RIGHT:
Does your son’s breakfast, lunch and dinner come from a box, a microwave or off a McDonald’s value menu? Everyone knows you are what you eat and if you eat terrible you feel terrible. So why do so many people do it? Because it’s cheap, convenient and let’s face it… it tastes good! What if the word healthy meant great taste at a price that even a college student would appreciate? With one on one instruction from our personalized chef, it’s possible! He’ll learn to cook easy, nutritious and affordable meals that are so delicious he’ll never want to go back. It’s time to change the way he looks at food and ultimately the way he feels, forever.
No 6. SURROUND HIM WITH GOOD & HONORABLE PEOPLE:
Has your son ever been pressured by others to do something he knew was wrong? Does he want friends who are loyal, trustworthy, and accept him for who he is? I think we all can agree that the right friends can make all the difference. Friends can either push him down or pull him up, disappear in the blink of an eye or stand with him in times of adversity, they can get him in trouble or guide him to safety. In essence, his friends can make his life amazing or utterly miserable. Why take the chance? At Forte Strong he’ll create friendships that last a life-time and meet men just like him… men who want to be part of a brotherhood that is founded on courage, honor, and strength. When he’s surrounded by men whose mission is for him to succeed, the obstacles he once thought was unconquerable begin to look easy and life takes on a whole new meaning.
No 7. GET HIM IN THE HABIT OF HELPING OTHERS OFTEN:
Has your son ever let fear prevent him from standing up for what he believed in? Does he want to help others but feels he doesn’t have what it takes to make a difference? Let me be the first to tell you that he does make a difference! He possesses skills, talents and attributes that are uniquely his. Forte Strong helps him hone these skills, develop his talents and unlock these unique attributes so he can help those in need who would otherwise be lost, hungry or heart-broken. Give him the chance to come join us on one of our local or national humanitarian missions and he’ll witness first-hand the difference just one person can make. Let him experience the joy that comes from helping others and watch the change in your son’s life when he makes a change in someone else’s.
No 8. GIVE HIM THE STRUCTURE & BALANCE HE NEEDS:
Does your son find himself cramming for a test the night before, late or unprepared for class, work, or other appointments? Has friends and family taken a backseat to TV, Xbox, or the internet? Too much of anything can be disastrous and without balance, life can quickly become lopsided, overwhelming and unmanageable. Help him begin to take charge of his life by learning the skills necessary to maintain a balanced and healthy lifestyle.
No 9. HELP HIM DISCOVER, UNDERSTAND & DEVELOP HIS STRENGTHS:
Does your son easily become overwhelmed when life takes an unexpected turn? Does he struggle to get back on his feet when he’s knocked down? The most successful people are those who know their strengths and understand how to use them. We afford your son the same opportunity, giving him the positive head start he needs to succeed. One of the ways we do this is through our Confidence Resume™. We start with a custom tailored document that identifies your son’s top strengths and then teach him how he can apply those strengths in his everyday life. It’s a powerful tool that gives your son the confidence to overcome any obstacle during times of trial, hardship or adversity.
No 10. PROVIDE AN ENVIRONMENT OF STRENGTH & INDEPENDENCE:
Does your son find it difficult to move out of the house, hold a steady job, or manage his money? Becoming independent is much more than receiving a paycheck, going to school or paying his bills on time… it’s about freedom. When we apply correct principles of independence, we gain freedom and when we don’t we lose it… its as simple as that. Paying bills on time for example means a higher credit rating; a higher credit rating means more borrowing options and more borrowing options means more freedom. The same can be said for anything in life. Once your son knows and understands the principles of independence, he can apply them, and once he applies them he become more free to live a life that’s his own. Let Forte Strong show him how.
