Does Porn Have a Place in a Man’s Life?

Where does porn fit in to your life's narrative? That is, with you not being a guy who's content with mediocrity but instead a man who has a fundamental understanding that we have one, brief life that's but a flicker of light in the story of eternity, giving us a responsibility to make the best and be the best with our time on this planet, where does watching porn fit in this story that you're writing, if it fits at all? We'll find the answer, but first, this article isn't written by an … [Read More...]

How to Maximize Results At A Bad Gym (or no gym)

Most emotions aren't real. Fear isn't real, it's merely a perception of a situation. Sometimes fear can be a good thing, like when it gives us more energy and a heightened awareness so we're able to better defend ourselves. Other times fear can be crippling, paralyzing any chance we have of living a … [Read More...]

8 Lessons in Manhood From the Vikings

What we think of men today is far different from what men used to be, and what men were meant to be. Men were once warriors and farmers. They were leaders and kings. They were strong, smart, and dangerous. They conquered and they defended. There was a time when the TV remote wasn't yet invented and … [Read More...]

The Ideal Start to an Ideal Day

Greatness doesn’t happen accidentally, nor does it occur in an instant. Greatness, or a grand life, an epic adventure, a legacy filled with impact and meaning to the individual and those who were fortunate enough to be a part of his life, happens over time. That life we want can’t be a life we seek, … [Read More...]

The Leg Day to End All Leg Days

Prior to writing this article I spent a couple of wonderful days visiting family in the north of Italy near a town called Udine. As Italian families do, I was spoiled with some of the most delicious food my tastebuds have ever had to pleasure of coming in contact with and in amounts that sent me … [Read More...]

How to Live a Story Worth Reading

The best books and films aren’t always those that are done on the grandest scale, but when your boundaries are limitless and you perfect the details, something legendary is created. The Gladiator and Braveheart found this balance in cinematic form. Lord of the Rings and Narnia in the literary form. … [Read More...]

10 Stories Every Man Must Live to Tell

I’ve stumbled upon a nice little café here in Milan that's run by a friendly couple who speak English and serve the best espresso and the best gelato, period. 'Twas at this cafe where a few hours ago a nice old man, a friend of their’s, stopped by to talk. He, as he always does, had a story to … [Read More...]

How to Be An Alpha Male

Alexander the Great

Dreams Don’t Come True. Plans Come True.

My dream is my dream. I hold it close. I guard it. I protect it by making plans to end its existence as a dream and graduate it to a reality. A dream that stays a dream is about as useful as a tit on a boar hog. It does nothing but damage. A dream that stays a dream creates more animosity towards our reality than it does fuel our rise towards our goal. Dreams have to become plans, if they don't, they die. It’s something that I’ve known but have forgotten far too often in my life, as I dream but fail to make the necessary plans to see these audacious dreams mature to fruition. Recently, it’s something I’m reminding of myself daily, and it's having its impact. The Dream I have many … [Read More...]

Society Breeds Cowards: How to Use the Iron to Become An Alpha Male

I've mentioned Theodore Roosevelt on this site before, and held him up as an example as to how a man should live. He pursued his ambitions, even against the wishes of his family. He traveled the world, faced his fears, and was one of the greatest Presidents America has ever known. I mentioned Roosevelt, however, not only as an archetype for the alpha male (let me explain this a tad deeper in a second), but as a shining example for the power of fitness. First, let's talk about Teddy the Alpha Male - the reasons aren't necessarily what they'd appear to be. Theodore Roosevelt has all the trappings of a social alpha male. That is, the social leader of a large group. He walked into the room, … [Read More...]

How to Become World Class

I was out for a few beers last night with a couple pal's. Both guys are successful. They're very good at what they do, and the confidence that comes with being good - even the best - at what they do comes across, not in an arrogant way, but in an assertive attitude. Every man should have that attitude. Every guy needs to know he's a winner, that he's here for a reason, and a good reason at that. Not everyone can be world class, true, but that notion limits the majority from even attempting to be the best at what they do. Most of us walk into work, content with being average, getting by, and surviving. But who is excited by mediocrity? Deep down we all want to be world class, we all want … [Read More...]

The Leg Day to End All Leg Days

Prior to writing this article I spent a couple of wonderful days visiting family in the north of Italy near a town called Udine. As Italian families do, I was spoiled with some of the most delicious food my tastebuds have ever had to pleasure of coming in contact with and in amounts that sent me straight to bed in a stuffed-to-the-brim, dream-like state only to wake up the next day, walk down to the kitchen, and feed again. With two and a half days of heavy feeding, largely of the pasta, pizza, vino, and beer variety, I needed to lift some heavy weights. And so, sitting down back in the apartment in Milan, I wrote the following workout, and today, the day after said workout, walking and … [Read More...]

4 Authors Every Man Needs to Know

Throughout my entire high school and college "career", I read one book. "Of Mice and Men", the only book that I had every truly read from start to finish until I was forced to educate myself. I'm as stubborn as a mule. I didn't read much when I was younger because I never saw how reading was going to help me be successful. I never saw the correlation. I also didn't enjoy the books that were being force-fed to me. Since then, I've gone back and read many of the books I failed to open as ateenager. And many more on top of that. When I dropped out of college and got a job in sales, I began educating myself on sales. I began reading. Books on sales led me to books on business which led … [Read More...]
