Build It then Kill It: My Approach to Fake It Til You Make it

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.

Open Thread: Depression in Men and the Need to Conquer

We’ve seen depression in men rise during the past few decades and the “experts” can’t seem to understand why.  The fact of the matter is many writers in the manosphere understand why.  It’s just that the answers are typically too politically incorrect for the mainstream experts to espouse so they hem and haw around the subject, blaming it on women taking men’s jobs in the workforce or some other trivial matter.

Bible Benefits: An Agnostic’s Review of Bibical Teachings

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.

The Best Damn Liver Recipe Out There

I recently saw a recipe online for a liver recipe that I knew I just had to try.  It was simple, had a wide variety of flavors that still worked well together, is incredibly healthy, and -most importantly- damn delicious!

Many people turn their noses up at liver as something alien and disgusting to eat, but they are doing themselves a great disservice.  Liver, when prepared properly, is fantastic and boasts an astounding nutrient profile. In fact, liver is so potent that it is advised to only eat 1 or 2 small servings per week or else risk overdosing on certain vitamins and minerals.   Continue reading “The Best Damn Liver Recipe Out There”

Finding Time in the AM

My life is pretty busy.  Having a full time job as a Systems Administrator, 3 kids, a wife, house being built, after school activities, homework, and studying for my certification exams is a lot on one plate.  That said, you need time to be by yourself and do things you want to do.  For me this is going to the gym in the early morning.  I have always been an early riser, but for anyone who can, I’d recommend getting up earlier in the morning if possible.  Today I’ll go over the benefits I’ve found from getting up early in the mornings.

The 48 Laws of Marriage: Law 9

Any momentary triumph you think you have gained through argument is really a Pyrrhic victory: The resentment and ill will you stir up is stronger and lasts longer than any momentary change of opinion. It is much more powerful to get others to agree with you through your actions, without saying a word. Demonstrate, do not explicate.

It’s time for another installment in the 48 Laws of Power Marriage series.  This time we’re focusing on a law that most men intrinsically know, but often ignore, especially when our own emotions begin to get amped up.

Today, we’re covering Law 9 and why it is a common tripping point for many men.
