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.

Living a legacy: 5 Things Every Man Should Seek to Accomplish in his Life

Living a legacy: 5 Things Every Man Should Seek to Accomplish in his Life

Every man wants to be great.

He wants to leave a legacy, be remembered for something.

Unfortunately most of the time, that's as far as it goes, it's only a thought. Rarely do dreams become realities through thinking alone.

A man has to strive to take action on his dreams, and his goals. When he doesn’t he becomes lethargic, depressed, envious and restless. Things that lead to an early death.

The light burns out.

Are you tired of paying gym membership fees, crowded workout facilities, and having to commute to and from the gym?

You are not alone, and you're in luck.

I don't like those things either. One of my biggest pet peeves is going to use a squat rack and someone is hanging out on their phone or taking pictures of themselves at the gym, but not actually lifting.

Those days are over.

If you want to be the man you were made to be, you can't be a victim

The best way to avoid being a victim is to not be one.

If something in your life is causing you to blame others, or is preventing you from being your best then you need to tackle it head on.

Confront it.

Deal with it.

How to develop situational-awareness like a trained special operations warrior

How to develop situational-awareness like a trained special operations warrior

What is Awareness?

The definition that I looked up said:

  1. Having knowledge or discernment of something
  2. Attentive and well informed
  3. Vigilant, Watchful

I love the first explanation. The word discernment is all encompassing, it is almost like having a foreshadowing of events to come. This is what we want to achieve.

It is almost like a sixth sense.
