Giving Her the Tingles After 14 Years

My wife and I have been married now for almost 15 years. During this time, we have become very familiar with each other. Many, including myself at times, feel like I have gotten into a rut. The mundane routine repeats itself again and again as you are waiting to get old and die. While this trap is real, you do not have to let it be this way.

Annals of Dread Game

Someone mentioned in the comments the other day about how there are so many quality articles that were published well before many of you were regularly following us.  With the suggestion of pulling some of our older posts from the archives, I present you dear readers with a few of my favorite posts from the 12 Levels of Dread series along with a quick description of each  to give you an idea of the topics covered in each article.

Writing about the 12 Levels of Dread in detail was an enjoyable experience as I felt there was much left unsaid in the original Reddit post on the subject.

For those of you who are new and are still navigating through the hundreds of posts on A King’s Castle, I hope you glean something of value from these articles.   Continue reading “Annals of Dread Game”

J. Nyx Vacation Lifting Routine

Right now I’m on my weeks vacation.  A time for relaxation, overeating, drinking and no workouts right?  WRONG!  That’s right, I am actually going to continue to lift on vacation.  Something about having the time to do it makes me happy to get before everyone and get a quick session in.  Sure I could go join a local gym, and I may get a day pass here or there, but I actually brought some of the gym with me.  Today I’ll go over my quick program that I’ll be doing for the next week while on vacation.

How Stoicism and Empathy Keep the Family Strong

Some of you have probably noticed that I haven’t been as active in the comments section this week as I normally am.  The reason for this is because my father in law has been in the hospital the past few days due to a possible spider bite that has developed into a full-on skin/blood infection.

The hospital he is staying at is waiting on a culture to develop so they can begin treating what inflicting him specifically Continue reading “How Stoicism and Empathy Keep the Family Strong”

Losing the Loser Mindset

We’ve all heard about tactics you can use to achieve success. DGAF, fake it til you make it, etc but I’ve noticed a mindset that many men these days have adopted due to a myriad of reasons, but the outcome is always the same. Today we’ll go over what this modern loser mindset is and how you can work toward fixing it.

ZFG Revisited

J.Nyx often writes about the ZFG mentality and why each man should begin incorporating this mindset into their life.  ZFG, or “Zero Fucks Given,”  is one of the Red Pill concepts that simply states a man shouldn’t care about what others think about them.

Some guy at the bar lobs an insult at you? Ignore it.

Wife tries to pick a fight? Laugh it off.

ZFG has its merits, I would never argue against that, but it is possible to take the ZFG mentality too far to where it has negative repercussions on your own life and the lives of those close to you. Continue reading “ZFG Revisited”
