How Masculinity Can Drastically Improve Your Life

As you may or may not know by now, I’m a huge “advocate” when it comes to re-instilling masculinity into today’s… men, since they seem to have more feminine traits as the days go by, and that’s disturbing.

You can see why I view Masculinity As A positive Force here.

But today I’ll be telling you HOW your life can get better by applying masculinity to it, let’s see some of the reasons:

1) Improve Your Relationships

Exactly.

As you grow into a more masculine man, your good relationships will flourish, while the bad ones will wither and fall away.

The reason for that is that by becoming more masculine you will naturally acquire traits that are deemed as powerful– by the good kind of people around you – while the bad ones will just feel “threatened” by those traits.

And you don’t need me to tell you that you need empowering people in your life, not envious little pricks.

In this way, your already strong relationships will become even stronger because they now see you as a man worthy of trust and respect, who cares about himself and the values he holds, while the bad ones will attack you for being “over the top” or “different”,

Because they have nothing they will STAND UP for.

It’s all a balancing act, really.
Ditch that kind of company.

 

2) Makes You Action-Oriented

Now, this shouldn’t come as a surprise because masculine men throughout history have been known to NOT sit on laurels, take as an example heroes, emperors, warriors, men of knowledge, but even the most normal of men, like a simple farmer, a worker, a factory owner, a baker… you name it.

But they all had one thing in common: they were focused on DOING THINGS.

Today the average man is dead in the eyes, crushed by his insecurities and his lack of confidence & ambition or even a semblance of a SPARK in his heart, drooling over a screen and UNFIT for reality,

Depressed.

Make yours the qualities of the Men Of The Past instead (see stoicism for example), where even the average man was extraordinary.

3) Feel More Grounded

Masculinity in itself is a grounding force.

It’s no mystery that women are attracted to it when they search for the ideal partner, since women look out for a stable, solid man as support.

So, as a masculine man, you can be sure to have something sturdy on which to base your life upon, and that’s because masculinity naturally gives you a skillset-so to speak- that enables you to be prepared to face any adversity:

  • Bravery
  • Resilience
  • Strength
  • Willpower

And the list goes on…

These are all powerful traits that usually come with a masculine man and they act in coordination to help the man navigate through life with clarity, without being swayed as much.

Being grounded in your masculinity also means that you know where to look out for in times of need, it means that you remember your roots and remain faithful to them so you can find MEANING in your existence as a man,

So that you remember what made you what you are today.

Masculinity As A Positive Force.

A person whom i admire very much, Bruce Lee, it’s linked to today’s topic and i thought mentioning him was a thing it felt right.

Bruce, in my book – is a perfect example of Masculinity : He was an overall achiever, he had objectives on which he never gave up (The acting career) and he was, and probably still is the greatest Martial Artist the world has ever known.

Masculinity today, at times it’s seen like a (and let me put emphasis on the quotes) “”Toxic”” trait.

I completely disagree with that, as it is something that’s intrinsic to the very nature of a man, how can something we’re born with be toxic?

And apart from that, masculinity is a strong and positive force, Men’s situation are changed because of it, are inspired to do good because of it, they take ACTION to better their (and other’s!) life because of it.

Here’s a video that explains it in a very good way – it’s a short video but it’s full of meaning when confronted with a lot of stupid nonsense some people are spouting nowadays. Watch it if you have time:

Now, why do i associate masculinity with Bruce Lee? well, i think that when a Man rises against all odds to realize something that’s really dear to his heart- that’s when he really shines.

And that’s exactly what Bruce did.

Bruce was the “peak of human strength and performance”, but he didn’t accomplish all of this overnight, of course – behind his success there’s a tortuous and long process that was necessary for achieving his strength.

While he enjoyed to stay in (stellar) shape but more importantly to Fight, in this way he wanted to show others (but first and foremost he did this for himself, to better his abilities) that he was the best – you know, some good competition that gave as a fruit the obvious, sought after byproduct of Mastery.

And here comes the good part :

But why does a man put himself into so much trouble to accomplish something? you’d think it’s just to satisfy himself right?

Yes…
BUT NO.

While Martial arts can be seen as destructive, it teaches men (and Women, even though these tendencies are more prominent in Men) not to just “be stronger” which in itself is a byproduct – but to Protect something, someone, dear to them.


The rising of certain characteristics such as Heroism, Selflessness, Sacrifice, Kindness, Relentlessness – always spurs because of a greater reason that you can’t see on the surface, martial arts it’s just an example very dear to me, but there are countless different situations – as you’ve seen in the video – where masculinity can be applied to.

In the end, masculinity shouldn’t be overwhelmed with attacks that won’t really go anywhere, as it’s not synonym of violence, as some degenerates love to claim.

Like femininity, masculinity it’s simply a collection of traits found since the birth of human beings, into men.

For both sexes not to express themselves like nature programmed them to, it’s foolish and unnatural, and what REALLY should be “condemned” it’s the toxicity of an individual itself.

No one, I repeat : NO ONE should be attacked and belittled for expressing these beautiful qualities that makes humanity – Human.

Have a great day!
Take care.

3 Manly Things You Can Do To Feel Amazing AND More Masculine Right Away.

Sometimes, as Men, we feel the urge to dip and engage into old-fashioned masculine “rituals” that can renew our spark-so to say- and can let us feel all those good emotions, and why not, at the same time, to build and strengthen the bonds with our male brothers. Or hell! even just experience some wholesome masculine activities.

Here I list a few things you should DEFINITELY try when you want to express yourself as a MAN and\or relax.

  1. HAVE SOME ALONE TIME IN NATURE

Spending some time alone in nature can really help you relax and recollect your thoughts – you can walk and literally “lose yourself” (which is a very manly thing to do) without really losing yourself though, and why not – you could even get a fire going and cook some crunchy bacon on it or a steak, topping it all with some nice black coffee!

Nature it’s always the way to go when you’re in need to reconnect with your manly side. After all, that’s where we came from!

2. CREATE SOMETHING.

Men ARE builders, creators.
So it makes sense that we feel connected the most when bringing something into existence,

It can be anything, really:

  • Craft a Hut\ something where you can store all of your tools.
  • Make some furniture for your home.
  • Write a Poem or a Novel.
  • Make a Videogame!
  • Paint something.

The possibilities are ENDLESS. In short, be creative!

3. GIVE ATTENTION TO YOUR LOVED ONES.

This.

Caring and looking out for the people who matters most in your life it’s one of the most manliest thing you could do.

Spend some time with your Parents, take them out to a fair and have fun eating all kinds of food!

Play with your kids!

Reach out to your friends and do something together, or just check on them!

Have fun\tease your Wife\GF into something “spicy” ;D


Build anticipation with her at the start of the day, give her some intense and sexy looks without giving out your intentions.

Lead Her into bold and new things – she’ll love you taking the lead.

And sprinkle it with a little of romance on top.

IF YOU LIKED THESE SUGGESTIONS PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE POST,

AND I’LL MAKE SURE TO DO MORE OF THESE.

Take care!

You Are Falling Into The Trap Of (Fake) Improvement.

Why is that you ask?

Well, let’s say you’ve picked up a few good and healthy habits recently, like:you stopped wasting time scrolling through Instagram and social media, you started eating healthier…that’s great!

…but…

Is that it?

What now? huh? you don’t know?
You see, picking up good habits and sticking to them it’s not going to help you if you don’t know where you’re going.

You can be the fittest,smartest and most disciplined individual around- but if you’re lacking direction all of those tools you’ve learned to use and build with are not going to help you, because oftentimes we get “contempt” with the little stuff we’ve achieved and we don’t even bother considering that-yet again- we need to re-invent ourselves. And we automatically go in autopilot mode, where we THINK we’re improving by re-enacting the same habits day after day, but we’re not really moving.

Keep your habits a CHALLENGE.
IF they’re not hard to stick to anymore, they’ve become part of you-so they are obsolete now. (That doesn’t mean that you have to remove them, mind you)

How would someone get out of a maze or find his\hers way back home with the wrong map? they’ll end up in another place or even worse, stuck in the same.

This is what i call “fake improvement” – ok, you’ve done something to improve, but you need to realize that keeping the same consistency on the habits you’ve built, the things you’ve learned ecc..it’s not enough. Life it’s all about constant change, so STALENESS it’s discouraged. Revamp those habits, add new ones! learn new things! meet new people!

You need to have a Roadmap, little goals that will propel you forward to the bigger one. Don’t do things just to improve, do things to improve AND to reach what you have in mind. Because lack of direction it’s always associated with no results whatsoever, so it won’t take you long before you realize that even that you’ve put in the work into your new habits it’s not giving you tangible results.

Be smart about it.

Take care,
