Adventure is at the heart of Men: Why men need to get back to taking risks, and living wild

Have you ever seen a Lion in a cage at the zoo?

What have you noticed about it, what did you observe?

I’ll tell you what I noticed…

I observed a wild animal that looked defeated. He was no longer able to be what he was made to be. He had lost his masculinity, the very essence of what makes him a lion. He was still a lion, and still capable of destroying anything that came in the cage, but, his aura and confidence had wain.

Instead of being able to hunt and stalk (yes, male lions hunt too), his food was given to him. He was no longer able to compete to be the king of the pride, so he never really knows if he has what it takes. He doesn’t get to play a game of chess with his prey.

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

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.
