How to be a better man in a world that always wants a quick fix or some form of medication

Most people want a quick fix.

They want a fabricated version of themselves.

Not only that, but they want, processed food, microwaveable snack dinners, Keurig coffee, on demand streaming movies, fast-lane checkouts, grocery pick-up in a car.

We like things how we want them, when we want them, and in the best quality possible. We are a highly consumerist culture, and we are driven by our "We want it now, mentality." It's really kind of sad.

That battle cannot be won on your own. You need strength, power, and truth from something bigger than yourself.

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

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

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.
