The Comparison Trap: Why a Man Does it, and Who he Should Really be Comparing Himself too.

The Comparison Trap: Why a Man Does it, and Who he Should Really be Comparing Himself too.

What's the number one thing that most guys ask each-other when they first meet?

"So, what do you do?"

This question can make a man shake in his boots, especially if he is already uncomfortable with his masculinity and how he provides for his family.

He doesn't need to be though, unless of course he is a dirt-bag, who lives and leaches off of other people. 

I actually despise this question, mainly because we have come to use it as a way to compare ourselves to other men, from the answer that we get we make assumptions and judgments about social status, money, success, and manhood.

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.

Testosterone 101: 5 things that decrease it, 10 ways that you can increase it, and why you need to do it.

I didn’t really even understand what testosterone was until recently.

Yes, maybe it’s sad to admit, but honestly, I didn’t think that it was really something that I needed to think about.

I was wrong. There are some startling facts about men and testosterone that I believe every man needs to know, and tune into.

Something happened to me about 6 years ago, right after I had graduated college. I was depressed, lethargic, and slow. There was no way I could do anything, even if I wanted to. Physically, I wasn’t as strong, I was gaining weight.

How to Have Less in a World that Wants More: A Guide for Men Who Want to Have More Freedom

I touched down at Narita airport on December 22nd, 2001. There was no snow, no greeting party, and no smiling faces of people I knew. It was just me, and the one bag I had.
