Choose Your Path

Years ago, I played High School eight man football as an offensive center, and as a right guard on defense. (My ball handling skills were crap) On defense, my coach told me something that stuck with me, “If you are unsure what you are doing, go 100% anyway”.  On the field, that philosophy helped me get past the line of scrimmage and cause panic for the offensive running backs. Later in life, that philosophy helped me go somewhere.

A few years later, I found myself in a situation where I was not sure what I was doing. Continue reading “Choose Your Path”

A Salad Fit For a King

A lot of you are probably in the same boat as I am fighting off the holiday bulge.  With so many sweets and other delicacies floating around the house and office and parties being held by family and friends, overeating can become an issue for even the most disciplined man.

A general rule I try to follow is eating well at least 80% of the time.  I find that if I can manage this, my weight stays pretty manageable.  Lately, I’ve taken to accomplishing this by eating more salads.

Now let me be real with you for a minute.  I’m not a big salad guy. Continue reading “A Salad Fit For a King”

Having a Large Family

In the comments here this week the topic of how to really bring change to this world is to have many children.  In a day and age where many men cannot even commit to having a backbone, the though of children truly terrifies some of these soy boys.  Having as many children as you can take care of is important if we’re going to pass on traditional virtues and teach the younger generation guys how to be real, masculine men.

The 10 Commandments: Family Edition

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

-Proverbs 22:6

Many men start creating a family without taking time to building some “family laws” that everyone is expected to follow.  As such, a lot of the early years of a marriage and raising children is filled with unnecessary stress as everyone’s expectations are askew.   Continue reading “The 10 Commandments: Family Edition”

Setting Your Boy Up For Success

My son is turning 10 this year, but I can honestly say he seems much older than that.  The kid is insightful, smart, tough, and I honestly enjoy talking with him.  I’ve noticed that he is becoming less reliant on his mother and comes to me for answers to things.  I realize that this is the beginning of me teaching him the correct way to be a man, and I’ll share what I’ve been thinking about teaching him about.

  3. COUPLE
  4. CHAIRS
  5. Putting It All Together

Last week we discussed the core principles of the Love & Respect dynamic and what both men and women need most from their spouse, men needing primarily respect from their wives and wives needing primarily love from their husbands.

Today, we are going to discuss what is arguably the primary reason for disputes in a marriage involving two well-meaning people: The breakdown of communication. Continue reading “Love & Respect: Blue and Pink Glasses”

Lessons I Learned From My Dad

While being in my 30s, somewhere in the borderline area between being a stable man and youthful enthusiast, I now have a more balanced and distanced outlook on my own father, himself currently in his mid-60s. A younger version of me might have looked more categorically upon both the strengths and the flaws of the biological reason why I exist, whereas the current I am able to discern the relative benefits as well shortcomings, and differentiate the crucial from the less significant.
