A Man’s Mindset: You’re Not Here for You

We can’t live for ourselves. It doesn’t work like that, at least not from the perspective of getting the most out of life. We need to be for others. We need reasons rooted in emotions to become better men, to win. I live on my own, in a house with my pup. I don’t have […]

THE DREAM: TO LIVE OFF THE BEATEN PATH

My pal’s taking his son on his first camping trip in the Albertan Rocky Mountains. The kid, my godson, is a hyper little shit who’s always getting into something he shouldn’t be into. He’s wild at heart, as they say, but he’s also a good kid, a sweet kid. The thought before they left was […]

THE 7 RULES THAT SEPARATE MEN FROM MERE MALES

I put Teddy’s leash on. Us being in a land in which I do not live, I didn’t want to take any chances. He could bolt, or worse, he could attack something. So the leash went on and we went off up the hill and into the Californian Redwood Forest. Not long into the hike […]

8 “Healthy” Foods That Suck for Fat Loss

There’s a difference between eating for health and eating for fat loss. Eating “healthy” won’t always help you reach your fat loss goals. Likewise, eating to lose fat isn’t always healthy. You can eat entirely 100% healthy all day every day and still become obese if you’re consuming excess calories. And even though everything you […]

4 RULES FOR BECOMING A KICKASS FATHER

It should come as no surprise that the state of the American father is in decline. Obesity is rampant, we spend more time working than ever before, and many of us abdicate our leadership roles in the home. The result? Children grow up with strangers, not dads. Men remain head of household in name only. […]

The Crisis of the Modern Man (And How To Overcome It

We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And […]

YOU CAN’T HAVE WHAT YOU DON’T DESERVE

You can’t have what you don’t deserve quite yet. But you can work harder than anyone else and get what you currently can’t even comprehend. I’m shifting my mindset from that of a dreamer to that of a worker. In our society we praise the dreamer but a dreamer that isn’t a worker will never […]

NO ONE’S WATCHING YOU!

I take a lady out for dinner the other day and when she goes to the lady’s room I sit back and look around. I see people who think they’re being watched. They dress in a way that gives the impression they clearly want to give. (Read This: Life is One Big Status Quo) They’re […]

Why Our Society Needs to Man Up!

As our society becomes safer and our lives become easier, we can hold opinions and values and ideologies that do the collective a great deal of harm without much negative consequence. We know that winning is important, yet we reward both the winner and the loser the same in our schools. We know that there […]

Man Up! Episode #20: A Real World Guide to Being a Hero

From Thoughts of a Philosophical Fighter Pilot: This may sound strange, but to me a hero is a man who will not accept the status quo if it does not meet his standards. For an instant or for an hour or for a month or in the case of prisoners, maybe longer, he will stand up […]
