The Importance of Rest

Here at AKC we always advocate to take the route that may be more difficult, but it pays off in the end.  You kill it in the gym, you crush it at work, and you’re the natural leader of your family, but we all need a bit of downtime.  Recently I’ve realized that I wasn’t giving myself enough recovery, if any at all.  We’ll discuss the importance of rest and downtime for dads and husbands who dominate life.

He Who Rules the Checkbook

As a father and husband you have to wear many hats.  You have to be the protector,  the teacher, the strong ox, the one who guides them etc.  One thing I’ve also realized is how you also have to be in charge of the finances of your family and how you need to be the one who green lights all expenditures.

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”

In Keeping Their Best Interests

Typically I write about things I’m going to do or am doing in my life as I lead this ship called a family.  Constantly keeping myself in check physically, and mentally.   Making sure I provide for them and protect them.  This is all done to set an example and do what I believe is my duty in life, and to my family.  Yet, sometimes the people who depend on you need guidance on how to better their own lives.  Today I’ll share my experiences and how I kept family on their own path, while continuing mine.  Continue reading “In Keeping Their Best Interests”

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.

Sunday Wisdom: November 5 2017

Today’s Sunday Wisdom is about peace.

Empty your mind of all thoughts.
Let your heart be at peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings,
but contemplate their return.

Each separate being in the universe
returns to the common source.
Returning to the source is serenity.

If you don’t realize the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realize where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
disinterested, amused,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.

Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
and when death comes, you are ready.

– Tao Te Ching: A New English Version

Every Man Should Write

“When I write I try as far as possible to forget I’m writing it at all.  I tell it down onto the page, as if I’m telling it to one person only, my best friend.”

-Michael Morpurgo

Writing is an underappreciated skill that most men abandon after their formal education is finished.  After all, who wants to write multiple page essays when they’re no longer forced to?  Yes, the modern education system is pretty effective at squashing the natural passions of many aspiring young men, but that’s a topic for another day.  Today we are going to discuss why you should pick back up your pencil and notepad and get to writing.

Dear (Son)……….An Open Letter

Note: This is a letter I recently gave to my son on his 13th birthday. He is a good kid, tall, smart and muscular. He has every reason to be on top of his game but has issues with socializing with other kids his age. He lacks confidence in himself, and it shows through fits and temper tantrums. Public school teachers would classify him as ADHD. But beneath it all, he has a strong desire to do the right thing and be honest.

Unlike that letter I proposed to send to my daughter, this one focuses more on his stage in life and the issues he is dealing with, rather than a broad overview of life. I will probably give him another as he gets into his last years of high school.
