A Word on Confidence

Confidence is a trait that gets brought up a lot in the ‘sphere. In my opinion, confidence is often confused for other personality traits and mannerisms that do not accurately define the word.  Interestingly enough, I’m reading a book by legendary bodybuilder Dave Draper, who defined it in a way that hit home with me.  In all the blogs and books I’ve read, no one seemed to have hit the correct definition more than Dave.  Today we’ll go over what it means to gain and have true confidence, and if you’re struggling with it, how to build it.

Arnold’s Three Part Formula for Success

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.

Destruction of Doubt

We all hit that point when doing something where doubt begins to kick in.  Whether you’re trying to get that next rep at the gym, trying to get something done at work, or when mid-project on something of leisure, there can be that time when everything is telling you to just give up, take the easy path, and do something easy, or worse, never start at all.  Recently I discovered that this voice inside you is typically wrong, and you’re capable of much more than you think.  Today I’ll go over some scenarios where just giving it that extra 1% more effort can pay off.   Continue reading “Destruction of Doubt”

A Well Placed No

The man of the house is expected to pull his weight as well as lead his family.  He’s expected to do whatever roles a husband or father should do. However, there are times when you must deny someone your time.  Becoming a doormat and a yes man will only get you into trouble.

The Carryover Effect

I work in tech and I have a female for a boss.  Typical 30 something “career oriented” woman, we all know the type.  She doesn’t handle stress well and freaks out over trivial things.  I got to thinking how I pretty much practice frame on her, dont back down, and handle my shit.  It got me thinking about how red pill tactics have a carry over into the workplace.

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.
