5 Reasons why men like to be and stay average, and why they aren't asking the right questions

5 Reasons why men like to be and stay average, and why they aren't asking the right questions

There is a war on masculinity. There is a war.

It is fought by yourself (Maybe), and the invisible enemy, that is preventing you from being the man you are made to be. Some would call this enemy the devil, some would call it a shadow oligarch, and some would call it culture.

I define this enemy as anything that is preventing your soul from being spiritually free. It is anything that is preventing you from being the man that you were made to be. The one that you know you are.

If you think about that, then the whole dynamic of warfare is changed.

It is no longer seen as something that isn’t on your doorstep. It is no longer classified as a battle between trained american soldiers in Afghanistan and members of ISIS.

The battle is right in your living room, right under your nose.

If you don’t see it like that, then I’m going to be very truthful with you right now.

You are losing.

How to get comfortable being uncomfortable: 10 things a man can do today to develop grit and discipline

Get comfortable being uncomfortable….

We hear these words so much now in our culture. In fact they are so cliche now that I doubt the people saying them really even know what it means.

I don’t really even know what they mean.

In fact, these words may only be reserved for those few individuals who risk their lives for something they believe in and are constantly on the brink of death.

50 Mile GoRuck Star course: After Action Report (AAR) - Advice on how to train, complete and get after it

50 Mile GoRuck Star course: After Action Report (AAR) - Advice on how to train, complete and get after it

For those of you who are not familiar with what a Star course is, it is by definition the culminating rucking exercise of Special Forces Selection. You show up with your ruck and you get a list of waypoints. You plot your route, then you start rucking: point to point, mile after mile.

For a lot of miles.

Most Special forces candidates don’t make selection. Not because they aren’t tough or didn’t quit, but because it is just a highly challenging, rigorous endeavor. Anyone who even attempts Selction is a badass in my mind. They are following their dreams and at least take a shot at them. 99% of the population wouldn’t even try.

The Reasons Why Every Man Needs to Have a Fortress of Solitude or Bat Cave: Recharge and Develop your Manliness

There will always be a constant struggle between the man that society and outside influences tell you to be and the man that you were made to be.

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)

  • Has low self esteem

  • Finds his worth in money, possessions, work or women

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.

The death of the manly man: How it happened, and what we need to do to as men to fight back in a culture that tries to mold us

This is how manhood was taught to me.

In high school. I chewed tobacco, shot guns, floated rivers and camped in the woods.

Kids today hang out on their game systems, eat chips and converse through social media.
