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”

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”

Love & Respect: Blue and Pink Glasses

  2. Blue and Pink Glasses

  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.

We also introduced the Crazy Cycle and how it feeds into itself until a marriage becomes a horrific mess.

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.

Leaving a Legacy

“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”

-Nelson Henderson

Today I saw a short clip from a well-known PUA within the Red Pill community lamenting what his life has thus amounted to.  As I watched the short clip, only 26 seconds long, I could see the regret across his face like a mask.  Within this short clip, he utters a truth that cuts to the very core of what has driven men all throughout history.   Continue reading “Leaving a Legacy”

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.

For the month of December, I will be relieving Cynic of duty to cover a book I’ve been reading called Love & Respect.  This book was suggested to me by a Twitter friend, Tex.  Before I went out and bought the book, I decided to listen to some sermons centered around the message of Love & Respect and was so impressed I went out and bought it the next day.

Meditation: Not Just for Mommies and Swamis

When we discuss the ways in which men can work toward discovering and building our best selves, the word “meditation” gets dropped fairly often. However, not much ink has been spilled discussing how to use it effectively as part of a modern man’s routine. In fact, the idea of meditation is most likely to conjure up images of mommies in yoga pants sitting in the lotus position (contemplating the foam on their lattes) and swamis in orange robes sitting on a hilltop in Southern Asia (or Southern California). What has that got to do with the neomasculine man? And more importantly, how do you do it?
