Man Up! Episode #13: The 2 Roles of Men




How to Man Up!

How can a life truly be lived in the avoidance of danger and pain?

  1. It’s when we push ourselves beyond what we can do, beyond our safe zones, that we experience life.
  2. Living is a verb, it requires action. It cannot be done while on your ass.
  3. Set higher goals. Explore. Adventure.


2 Roles of Men

1. Explorer.

It’s your duty to go beyond. That is, to set higher goals, to work harder, to explore more, to get out into nature and test yourself against the elements.

2. Defender.

It’s your duty to defend. But not only your duty to rise to the call to action, but be skilled enough and strong enough to actually be of some use when you do defend.
