the warrior within

A real man is self reliant and courageous. There isn’t a pussy who can call himself a real man. He’s persistent. He keeps the faith while others lose theirs. He’s a leader, a true leader who forges his own path, who talks to the loner in the corner of the cafeteria while the mob chooses to [...]

‘Twas but a couple of nights ago. The lads and I were nestled at the corner of the bar, each with a pint in hand bellowing boisterously about past escapades when we realize the time. We were behind schedule by a few hours. The beers, which were supposed to be few, became numerous – the [...]

A Real Man’s Guide to Living a Legendary Life

Life is useless if it’s boring. It’s meaningless if it isn’t selfless, empty if it isn’t lived for a reason or greater purpose.

How to Be More Masculine

I was watching Jimmy Kimmel Live! the other night. Mark Ruffalo was Jimmy’s guest, and he was describing a time when he met one of his favorite actors, a hero of his, Sean Penn. Penn grabbed him at a movie premiere and took him for a drink. As they sat down to order, Ruffalo became anxious. [...]

How to Become An Alpha Male in Modern Society

Where have all the real men gone? It’s a question not asked by one sex alone, but by both. Men want permission; we want someone to say, Yes! It’s okay to be wild, to be strong, to be assertive! It’s okay to be a man! Women want that man. They want strength, kindness and a quiet confidence. [...]

The Easy Life is For Suckers

Better to live life as a lion

My first fight was as it should be: a battle. Nothing about it was comfortable; everything about it was a struggle. It didn’t take place in the comfort of my hometown, or in the familiarity of my home ring. I had to drive 8 hours just to get to the town where it was held. [...]

What inspired Hemingway to write, nay, LIVE with such intent? Why did Teddy Roosevelt do and experience more in his life than most of us would even dare to in our dreams? Why is it that so few do, while millions more dream, think, and wish? It’s 9:31 on a Saturday night. I just finished [...]

When I was a fighter, I was tougher. I lived more like a warrior. It wasn’t just the fact that I was in the ring throwing and taking punches. It was my lifestyle. I practiced toughness. I didn’t talk to people as much. I didn’t look at my phone as often or check my email as [...]

There exists an ingredient that will bring a man success in anything he seeks. His only limitations are those he places upon himself – his imagination, his capacity to dream, his capability to work.
