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...]

How to Be An Alpha Male

How to Be Superman

Superheroes were created to fill our desire, in part, to have a hero, but also to be a hero. For the Alphas in the crowd, it's likely more the latter. There's nothing a guy wants more than to be a hero. To come swooping in to save the day, the damsel in distress, and to win the babe by beating up the brute. To be a Man of Steel. There's not a guy on the planet who, in his heart of hearts, wants to live a small, meek, uneventful life. Deep down we all hate the 9-5 because it locks us into safety, preventing us from adventure. We hate school because it tames us, domesticates us, and dampens our fire. We'd love to be a hero, but we're so emasculated, domesticated, and tamed, that the wild … [Read More...]

How to Conquer Your Greatest Obstacle & Live The Dream

“There would be no Resistance without the Dream. The Dream comes first. Resistance follows. So if you wake up tomorrow morning overwhelmed with fear, dread, and negative energy, that’s a good sign. The massive shadow that you’re experiencing is being cast by an equally massive tree—the tree of your dream, your vision, your calling. The negative implies the positive. The more daunting the negative, the more brilliant the positive. Resistance has no power of its own. It’s a shadow, nothing more. As soon as we learn to look past the shadow to the Dream that has cast it, the shadow loses all power over us.” – Steven Pressfield It's been a dream of mine, for some time now, to write a book. … [Read More...]

5 Simple Steps to Increase Testosterone Levels in Men

A few years ago something clicked in my often stubborn mind that led me down a journey to find the "secret" to a strong, powerful, alpha-esque body. A secret that I eventually found in the powerful, often vilified hormone, Testosterone. Alas, there I stood, weights in hand, sweat pouring from my brow as I lifted the weight up, then down, up, then down. And then there was a pal of mine, a guy who I'd known only from our brief conversations at the gym, standing next to me, lifting a heavier weight. He was stronger. Bigger. Leaner. But I worked harder. The frustration I’d experienced when I was skinny was coming back. I was brought back to a time when I worked as hard as anybody, but my … [Read More...]

How to Be a Lion for a Day

Everyday I wake up with a daunting, audacious goal at the forefront of my mind. The goal isn't going to be accomplished today or tomorrow or the next day, it's a goal that exists somewhere in my future. It's a place in life that I'll exist in. The road to that place in the sun is an arduous one. It's a long road that will test my mettle, determine whether I am a persistent individual or not, and ask the question daily, How bad to I want it? I wake up with this future existence in my mind, but I can't stay there. To stay there would mean the death of my dream. The only place I can be is in the only place that exists; today. Do I come back to the present all of the time? No. Sometimes I … [Read More...]
