Keeping The Challenge Going

If you go the the gym and lift the same weight the same amount of reps each time, you wont progress after a certain point.  Your body and muscles will adapt and you’ll just be spinning your wheels.  The same can be said about other parts of your life as well.  As men, we must constantly challenge ourselves to do better, to be more than who we were yesterday, and push limits because it is that fire inside us to overcome obstacles that keeps us on the correct path.

Trusting Your Gut

Trusting your gut is a phrase that makes perfect sense to some while making others cringe.  As an INTP personality, I fall into the latter category, and struggle trusting my own instincts, preferring concrete proof before making decisions.  While this might sound like a logical conclusion to many men out there, it has its drawbacks.  Today, we’re digging into why and when you should trust your gut as well as steps to improving the accuracy of your instincts so you can wind up being right more often than not.

The Choice to Lead

When we embark on this journey as fathers and husbands, we are making a choice, but at that time it doesn’t seem like we are making such a monumental one.  Things like getting married and choosing to have kids with your wife are the easy things.  The other things that you chose at these times are to be the leader at all times.  You’re constantly under scrutiny, but at the same time, they all hold you to the highest regard in the first place, and if not, you’ve screwed something up. Something recently made me think about all of this and how we’re always looked upon to be the one who leads.

The Abundant Man

“When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”
― Anthony Robbins

In today’s society, we’re often taught to look out for number one.  Always make sure you’re getting yourself taken care of and screw everyone else.  In a lot of ways, that’s sound advice.

Don’t sell your soul to your company when they won’t hesitate to drop you to increase their profit margin.

Don’t extend yourself out to strangers who will gladly screw you over for a few bucks or a fleeting moment of fame.

The dark world can be harsh and leave us cynical and selfish, but there’s one area that shouldn’t be true; with your family and friends. Continue reading “The Abundant Man”

Book Review: Titus Hauer’s “PEAK”

“I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”

-Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

To preface this article, the full title is PEAK: The Neuroscientific Way to Self-Improvement, but I thought that might be a bit too much for the headline.

In the Red Pill community, discussions about stoicism, frame control, and controlling your emotions are pretty common place.  What’s less common, however, is the discussion on why we have emotions to begin with and methods for controlling them.

Enter Titus Hauer and his latest book, PEAK.   Continue reading “Book Review: Titus Hauer’s “PEAK””

Do Not Tolerate Blind Tolerance

Tolerance is a term that is used in abundance nowadays and perverted the minds of many well-meaning people.  This isn’t a coincidence either.  It is a coordinated effort to slowly push the goal post against men, driving us deeper into depravity. Continue reading “Do Not Tolerate Blind Tolerance”

Cultivating Courage

I like to define courage as doing what you have to do when things are going crazy.  In an age when whining and complaining about the things you have to do are all the rage, having the balls to step up to the plate when you may be unsure is a notable thing.  Today we’ll discuss what courage is, how you can apply it differently, and how to keep yourself always prepared to rise to the occasion.

13 Daily Virtues: Silence, Sincerity, Justice

This is part four of a multi-part series which discusses a method Ben Franklin used to develop his character as a man. Today I’ll go over the next three: Silence, Sincerity, and Justice. Franklin provided a quick explanation of each virtue, but I will provide my own interpretation, as well as how to employ these virtues in your life, and how it relates to red pill theory as a whole.

You Set The Tone

While out at my kids soccer game this weekend, tensions were high.  It was a playoff game and both teams were evenly matched.  It went into a sudden death shootout and my kid’s team was defeated.  It sucked for most parents to deal with this, but one guy in particular started raging and screaming, claiming we had been cheated.  He was arguing with the official and his kids looked like they wanted to run away.  It got me thinking about how as a father you set the tone that not only others see, but how your children and wife will fall in line.  Today’s article will go over how you can be a good role model and leader in these situations.
