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.
Last Sunday I decided to break up the usual homebody routine and decided to hit one of my good buddies up. We met up, shot the shit, and really just chilled. I was having a good time and a breather from being Dad and husband all the time felt great, but you see guys who never leave the side of their wives and kids, or worst case, they are “forbidden” to have time for themselves. These guys always have a defeated, dead look on their faces. Today go over why you should schedule solitary time and time with your guy friends away from the family.

Today’s post is the mid point update where we will share our questions, triumphs, difficulties, and advice.
When lifting yesterday morning I had a set of 3 x 12 incline presses I wanted to crush. That is a good amount of reps, but at 5 am it can seem like a daunting task. I ended up getting every rep but I realized I did something different before I even put my hands on the bar. I envisioned me doing the reps with ease. Today, I’ll go over how your mindset going into any task can set you up for success, and how to realign if you’re not focused enough to emerge victorious.
Whether you’re about about to make that last rep, about to get that last mile in, or 20 minutes out from completing a project, there seems to be this voice telling you that “this is too hard” and “just give up.” I’ve worked to ignore this voice and push myself harder than I ever could by grinding on and keeping things moving. To me, that is the key to overcoming your own self doubt and unreal limitations.
