The man that others want you to be does these things:

  • Compares himself to others

  • Worries about what others think

  • Walks on eggshells - (Afraid to be himself in fear of people not "liking" him)

  • Manipulates others to get his way - (By means of guilt or other underhanded tactics)

How to define your own success as a man: Find out what you really want most in life

How to define your own success as a man: Find out what you really want most in life

The first step in defining success is owning up to who we are and our current situation. 

Everything that has happened in your life up to this point can't be changed. It is what it is. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, quit being a whiny baby and little pouting kid. Man up.

You can't change what was or what happened, but you can change what happens to you from here on out. You are responsible for your own life.

Short Term Thinking vs Long term Goals: The effects of Instant Gratification and how it harms us as men

The point I want to hit on though is that we live in an extremely consumerist and entitled culture. We want things right now, and we want them the way we want them, no exceptions.

We believe that everything should be handed to us, in our laps, with a pretty red ribbon tied around it, and with all our wishes coming true.

15 Books that Every Man “Should” Read in his Lifetime: About Men, For Men, and Written by Men

15 Books that Every Man “Should” Read in his Lifetime: About Men, For Men, and Written by Men

There are a lot of bloggers, people, and websites that tell you that you "should" read certain books if you are a man, and they focus on things like how to dress, or how to behave.

Most of them tell you that you should read “The Great Gatsby”, or “The Catcher in the Rye.”

Those books are decent, but boring, at least in my opinion. I believe that a man needs to read books that he’s actually interested in. He shouldn’t read a book because he thinks he has to, or because everyone else is.
