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

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.

We no longer know the term patience, or wait, we just don't have time in our lives for it.

First. I love movies, good ones anyway.

Second. This one is full of practical applicable wisdom for everyday life.

The movie is about a team of astronauts that have gone to Mars for research. They get caught in a windstorm or dust-storm (Which by the way scientists say could never happen.)

The Thief and The Warrior: A man has to know that there is a battle going on

The Thief and The Warrior: A man has to know that there is a battle going on

The thief is anything that is preventing you from becoming the man or person that you were made to be. The thief can be your thoughts, your addictions, or any distraction in your life.

That thief is looking to destroy you, run you aground and keep you off track.

I let that thief run my life. I paid for it.

That thief is what runs this world. and looks desperately for anyone that it can mislead and keep off course. Now you know why I say that there is a battle going on everyday. There is a war waging inside of you between who you are, and who you are meant to be.

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

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.

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.

Not necessarily a physical death, but a death within, a death of the spirit within him.

The light burns out.

Discipline for the morning: How to build strength, conquer your goals, and stay positive throughout the day

Discipline for the morning: How to build strength, conquer your goals, and stay positive throughout the day

Those days are over right?

WRONG.

I’m on a mission to debunk that. I believe men are warriors, and they have it in them to be great in all aspects of their life.

It starts with a Mindset Change, a belief that you are capable of being more than you think…being the man that you are made to be.

Men have bought into a lot of lies that have crippled them.

The lost virtues of a man part 2: How to navigate through this modern culture with integrity, strength, confidence and character

The lost virtues of a man part 2: How to navigate through this modern culture with integrity, strength, confidence and character

Today I don't believe that most men know how to change the tire on their car or how to fix their own lawnmower, or how to fight. The thought of a fight send our culture into a frenzy.

It is a lack of not wanting to learn, and our culture being to convenient. Hard things create hard men. Easy things create lazy, soft men.

Something is deeply wrong.
