You guys get a WotW break today. One facet you read about on an number of manosphere sites is how to build confidence. Guys young and old want to be more confident in life. The conventional method these sites preach is to “fake it til you make it.” I have always had an issue with this way of thinking as I believe it is flawed. Today I’ll go over why I think “faking” your way to success is bullshit, and how you can truly build your confidence with examples I’ve used in my own life.
I am not a Christian. I don’t go to church and I probably never will. I’m not a full blown neck beard atheist and I guess if I had to lable myself it would be an agnostic. All that said, recently I’ve found myself having a more open mind on religion. There are valuable lessons to be learned and traditional ways of thinking cannot be ignored. Today I’ll insights I’ve found in the good book and how I feel they apply. This is truly an outsiders point of view, but I respect everyone’s religious views. I intend on this to be a loose series and review of the Bible. I’ll write about my insights as I read on.
This week we continue with our Way of the Warlord program here at A Kings Castle. This is designed to be an interactive physical, mental, and martial arts program where the authors of the site give out a two week challenge to the readers to better ourselves and become better men.
Wisdom: The proper use of knowledge which enables one to navigate through life successfully.
– Pastor Wayne
Success in life comes from wisdom. With wisdom, a man can take advantage of opportunities in life and more importantly avoid the pitfalls in life that entrap and destroy others. Maturity is both growing older and growing wiser. If you are looking to improve your life, the quickest and strongest way to do so is to increase your wisdom. Continue reading “Learning Wisdom”
Relax, AKC hasn’t gone down the political route, and we never will. I borrowed that term because it occurred to me this weekend that as I get older, friends you can’t relate to anymore tend to fade away. Not only that, but I’m a firm believer of surrounding yourself with people who will motivate you instead of bring you down. Today I’ll go over my experience on this matter and what I did in my owin life.
Much of my reading these days has been about bodybuilding. As you all know, I’m on the Team WB Fitness program that is, you guessed it, a bodybuilding program. When I am doing something, I want to know all about it, and research it and learn all there is to know on a the subject. Naturally, I have been reading Arnold Schwarzenegger’s books. If you want advice, I say go to the best. In his book “The Education of a Bodybuilder”, Arnold explains a method he used inside and outside the gym to reach success. Today I’ll explain what they are, and how I’ve been using this method in my own life to succeed.
This is my 100th post on AKC so I wanted to write something a bit different than I typically do. The title of this article is a piece of wisdom I learned from my father. He didn’t teach me too much growing up due to my parents being separated and him having his own interests in mind, but as a teen I worked for him doing masonry work. These years were the only time we really had time to be around each other and I learned a few things about life. Today, I’ll recall my favorite saying and mindset I learned from my dad and what it actually means to me.

We promote the go get it, kill it in every aspect of life attitude around here. We’re committed to being the best fathers, leaders, husbands and also being fit physically, mentally and socially. I’ve noticed at times that we can get wrapped up in this, after all its who we are, and there are times that you have to take a step back, laugh at life, and just run on auto pilot for a bit. Today I’ll speak about taking that needed time to recuperate and what you can do to recharge when you’ve been hustling your ass off. Continue reading “Remembering To Be Human”
Aikido, like all martial arts, devotes a lot of time to focus on the individual. However, unlike most martial arts, whose sole focus is on the physical, Aikido spends much more time on the mental and spiritual aspects. Whether or not you believe in chi, life forces, etc, softer styles like Aikido offer a unique perspective not just on the individual, but to your entire life.
One exercise we do from time to time is a little something called Unbendable Arm. Continue reading “A Slight Change of Focus”
