A Man Is Wild At Heart

Lion hunting high key

Suburbia freaks me out. The houses in rows. The picket fences. The stress and worry about things that matter little. The value placed on the new car in the driveway conveniently parked and washed as to let the neighbors know that you’re making more money than they, when in reality you owe more money than […]

Yes, You Should Man Up and Grow a Pair.

Lion against stormy sky

Sitting on me arse, writing away, I broke one of my own golden rule; I got distracted. I opened my email account to check what was going on in the middle of a workday when I was supposed to be writing, not emailing or Googling or Facebooking. It was with that initial act of weakness, […]

Life is Just One Big Pissing Contest

Standing in front of the toilet with far too much water built up in my bladder, I let it fly. The sound is Niagara falls-esque as it wakes up my deaf dog, the neighbors, and any other living being within a 10 block radius. The birds begin to chirp a few hours too early and the rooster crows […]

The Tale Of The Warrior And The Coward

Medieval Warrior Helmet

“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything either as a blessing or a curse.” ~ Carlos Casteneda There’s a profound difference between the ordinary man and the warrior, and it has not to do with their physical […]

Every Man is an Outlaw

Better to live life as a lion

Every man has a little outlaw in him. A part of his soul that could, if pushed, live life on the other side of the law by his own rules and on his own time. It’s a part of being a man to crave adventure that can only be found on the outskirts of civilized […]

10 Qualities of a Modern Day Warrior

I hate putting the word “modern” next to the word warrior. Once a warrior always a warrior, I say. But the realities of our world are far different from those of warriors past; at least they appear to be on the surface… The circumstances have changed. In the past a warrior knew his enemy. He fought […]

The 3 Steps to Building the Ideal Body

The ideal male body… Da Vinci broke it down to its ratios, the David was Michelangelo’s personification of the idea, and antiquity spoke to us about Achilles’ perfection. In more modern times, however, this ideal has become an odd, misguided obsession. Guys spend as much time in the gym as they do working and reading. […]

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 […]

18 Steps To World Domination

Yesterday, as I left the boxing gym drenched in sweat, lactic acid still paralyzing my body, my pal and I started talking. The conversation went from business and money, to boxing and training, to being a man and an alpha male, and as we passed the Catholic cemetery by my house, we talked about the brevity of life. The […]

How to Get Confident, Be More Manly, & Rule the World

I’ve walked in to job interviews standing strong, confident, and purposeful. And I’ve walked into job interviews timid. I’ve gone on dates where I was more nervous than a hooker at church. And I’ve gone on dates comfortable, confident, and as unapologetically me as I could possibly be. I’ve had periods in my life where […]
