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 successful and happy life. Stress and worry aren't real, they're our perception of a situation and of our reality. By in large they're a destructive lie that we tell ourselves. A lie that pulls us … [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 … [Read More...]

30 Books Every Man Needs to Read Before Turning 30

A man's twenties ain't what they used to be. What was once the age where a boy became a man, has now been relegated to a purgatorial state of growth and "finding one's Self", crossed with partying and incurring the debt that such partying brings, or the debt that school now dumps onto the shoulders of a guy who, in previous generations, would be a few years into the workforce. Instead of having a family, which was once the norm, we're moving towards a selfish existence that may finally end in our thirties, possibly even our forties. A man's twenties ain't what they used to be. But we're different are we not? When most gravitate toward ease, we seek the strenuous life. As our friends and … [Read More...]

17 Valuable Life Lessons You Will Eventually Need to Learn

This was my second trip within the month. On my previous flight I'd taken my first journey to Vegas. 'Twas a trip that would span four sleepless nights filled with stories that must remain in that city, and that probably took 5 years off my life. The flight I was currently on, was actually a result of that trip. Nestled in a window seat of a flight heading to Costa Rica, to, of course, experience the culture, but also to visit a young lady I'd met only a month earlier on that trip to Vegas. My friends busted my balls, as they should, telling me I was headed to a Saw (the horror film) scenario. I'd only corresponded with this girl via email. For all I knew I could be waiting for her to … [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...]

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...]

To Live As William Wallace Lived.

I am William Wallace, or at least I'm in his mind as I walk up the steep hill on the way to the monument that's erected in his honor. I close my eyes, for a moment, to bring myself back to a time when freedom was something men were willing to die for and tyranny not something we blindly and willingly accept as we do in today's docile society. I'm him. My heart starts to beat nervously as I picture the battle. The enemy standing thousands stronger than my forces, with my death promising to be a brutal spectacle if I continue to fight for something that I'm willing to suffer and die for. I feel the dirt in my fingers, my hair draped on my shoulders, and my purpose so strong in my … [Read More...]
