Marek Rudak was born and grew up in communist Poland. He lost his dad at a young age. When he was fourteen, his mom remarried, and Marek moved to California.
He came to feel like he was the fifth wheel in his new family. This led him toward a desire to control others by focusing on earning his worth through personal accomplishments.
Marek graduated in the top 10% of his class at West Point and became a Ranger in the 82nd Airborne Division, where he deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. After receiving an honorable discharge from the Army, Marek went with the highest paying job he could find, ExxonMobil, where he worked for ten years on multi-billion-dollar projects all over the world.
A tough divorce led Marek to a lot of soul searching and multiple life changes. After meeting the love of his life, Marek decided to quit his job and commit himself full time to the mission of improving men’s love proficiency.
The Love-Driven Man
All of this led Marek to write his book, The Love-Driven Man. He explained how our experiences shapes who we are and what we believe, and how when we feel like something is missing, then we have to change our routines to find fresh perspectives. So he set out to share the key to how to go about that.
After reading The Love Driven Man, you will recognize how our minds’ desire to control blinds us to options and results in fear. The book will guide you through a series of questions that will help you make more fulfilling choices – Love Driven decisions that will bring you closer to God and what matters eternally.
In the book, Marek shares vulnerable stories ranging from his time in communist Poland, through West Point, Corporate America, divorce, dating, finding true love to entrepreneurship. Along the way, you will find fascinating vignettes from historical figures, celebrities as well as classical fiction. The diversity of examples will give you new insights and inspire you to take action. All which will help you avoid the disadvantages of control and bring more love into your life.
In a particular way, Marek and I discussed the great need for men to be able to become the kind of man that they had, or in Marek’s words, “To become the miracle that you had” so that all men can become the strong, love-driven men God created each man to be.
Marek’s and my conversation was extremely edifying, and especially timely in a world that is demanding a new perspective almost daily. I pray that this conversation brings you much enlightenment and prompts you to do whatever you can (gifting a copy of Marek’s book would be a start!) for each man in your life so he can be the Love-Driven Man he is created to be.
