How a man can be a warrior even when he thinks that he is a lost cause

How a man can be a warrior even when he thinks that he is a lost cause

I have been turned down for job promotions or other positions seven times in the last year.

I understand rejection, and have felt it many times in my life, and will continue to have it happen I’m sure.

Most men have probably felt the pain of rejection, or the frustration from getting passed up for a promotion or different position. I’m not really different than any other man.

The problem with this is when we as men let it consume us, or we dwell on it, and wrap our identity up in it. Or, we think we deserve it.

The truth is maybe we do, but we didn’t get it, and now we have to learn to move on.

4 amazing books that will transform a mans life, plus two things you should do everyday

4 amazing books that will transform a mans life, plus two things you should do everyday

Yesterday as I was working out, I thought about some of the things that I wanted to share with every man.

This spawned my first video blog ( I guess that’s what you call it).

It’s called the “4 books Every Man Should Read” and you can view the video below or on YouTube.

There is no longer a Facebook page or an Instagram page for the 360ManProject, but I would like to continue to make videos, and you should begin to see more of those pop up.

However, I don’t want to continue making them if they don’t add any sort of value or help any man out (I believe they will).

15 awesome Sci-Fi and Fantasy books every man should read no matter what his age

15 awesome Sci-Fi and Fantasy books every man should read no matter what his age

I’m a huge nerd.

I love fantasy books, sci-fi books, calculus and fitness. Not only that, but I want others to share in my love for these things.

I believe that it’s easy to get caught up in our lives and become too consumed by the things around us that we forget about the endless possibilities of what could be.

That is why I love sci-fi and fantasy books. They help people to escape the confines of this world and allow their minds to explore the mysteries of the unknown. Sure, some of it might be far fetched, but who cares. The fact that you get to use your imagination should inspire you. It does for me.

7 things that you didn't know about Stephen Dull and the 360 Man Project

7 things that you didn't know about Stephen Dull and the 360 Man Project

This post might sound a bit self serving, but I assure you it’s not.

I just realize that there are a lot of articles on this website, but not a whole lot of information about me, and I want people who are reading this to know more about me and take a peek behind the curtain into my life.

There are two reasons for me doing this:

  • It scares the crap out of me, because I am a very private and introverted person.

  • Because it makes me more real to you

Hopefully, this will help us to become more acquainted and for you to see that I am not a robot, or just someone behind a computer spewing information that has no merit.

Thoughts on Digital Minimalism and going off the Grid: Getting off social media for 30 days

Thoughts on Digital Minimalism and going off the Grid: Getting off social media for 30 days

This past weekend, I was able to do something I haven't done in a while...

I read two books.

These were not only books that interested me, they were books that convicted me to be honest with myself and confront some issues that I have.

What I found out, might shock you.

But first, let me give you a little background.

I grew up in a very small town called Mackay, Idaho. It had a population of no more that about 500 people. I knew everyone, and they knew me. In fact, most people were very polite and would wave and say hello to each-other, neighbors would help out if you were in trouble, or needed a hand.

The 15 most important questions a man needs to ask himself and find the answer to in his life

The 15 most important questions a man needs to ask himself and find the answer to in his life

As men we sometimes believe we are meant to have have everything figured out, that we are somehow immune to not having the answer.

The truth is, we don’t have the answers to a lot of questions.

The problem is that most men, don’t try and find the answer, or even ask the questions.

Whichever it is, this article is meant to help you start asking the right questions, and to find the answers if they need finding out.

Slaying Dragons: A Manifesto for the men of the modern times

Slaying Dragons: A Manifesto for the men of the modern times

I have been thinking about this topic for about a week or so now.

I got to really digging in and asking myself a question: “If I could go back eight years to that day I finally woke up from the slumber I was in and finally make a change, what are the things that I would want to tell every man?”

I’m not a perfect man, and I never will be this side of life. However, I have learned a lot of things in the past few years that I see so many men still struggle with. Not only do they struggle with them, but they don’t really know what to do.

I want to break it down for men, so they at least have a path that they can walk. Once again, it might not be an exact route, or a perfect route, but it is at least a guiding light.

Why being a father is the greatest and most important role a man can have in his life: Raising strong, brave and self sufficient kids

Why being a father is the greatest and most important role a man can have in his life: Raising strong, brave and self sufficient kids

I fail as a father a lot…

In fact most of the time, I have no clue what I’m doing, but I just keep trying to figure it out the best that I can.

No one gives a father a manual on exactly what to do, or what it’s going to be like when you hold your child in your arms for the first time. Or what to do when they cry for the first time.

However, as a man, I want to see other men raise strong, brave and confident kids, and it pains me so much when I see kids neglected, mistreated, ignored and unloved. It breaks my heart.

As men, we are to be the best things in our kids life, the heroes that they deserve to look up to. Sure, we might not have all the answers or be one hundred percent perfect one hundred percent of the time, but we do need to make our best effort.
