These are helpful things to look for when trying to gauge attraction.

1. If you’re talking to a cashier and she tells you for any reason when she gets off work, she wants you to come back.

2. If a girl gives you her number, on some level she is interested. Meaning she gives it to you without you prompting her first, though often if she gives it to you after you ask her it still means she’s interested* If a girl repeatedly mentions how she wishes she had a nice guy to date, she is interested.

The Daily Man-Up

July 18, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Advice |

Self-doubt is normal. Everyone who has ever done anything outside of their comfort zone doubted themselves at some point.

Here’s the thing though: you are tough. You are still here; you are reading this post and surviving in the world and that makes you tough, because this is a tough world to survive in. Think of all the things that life has thrown at you in your 20, 30, 50 years on this planet. And you made it through all of that.

And sure, I know that getting through some of that absolutely sucked, but you did it and you are a more complex, capable and wise person because of it. Whether you realize it or not, you learned from all of those crappy experiences.

Here’s a hard truth about life that few people will tell you and most people don’t want to accept: working hard, not for a boss or because The Man™ wants you to, but on yourself and your passions is one of the best ways to all but guarantee yourself at least some level of happiness.

But the thing is, many of us don’t want to work hard, because often hard work, even on things that we love, can get pretty uncomfortable. The word “passion” comes from the Latin word for “suffer” because often we have to suffer for the things that we’re passionate about.

The Daily Man-Up: Would you like YOU if you met YOU?

Ask yourself this every morning, every now and then. We know you love yourself and that is very healthy. We all know you believe in the “nobody’s perfect” speech so I cannot be it all. But the question to you today is, if you met someone exactly like you;

Someone who has no positive goals;

Someone who is only willing to do to their ‘limit’, but not push the bar to realize their true potential (which is only limited to their own desire BTW);

The Daily Man-Up: How To Be A Better Listener

July 12, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Self-Improvement |

One social habit that I used to be quite bad at was to truly listen when other people spoke. I sometimes zoned out. I got distracted or my attention started to wander before they were done talking.

Or I just waited for my turn to talk again (while thinking about what I should say next).

Not very helpful. So things had to change.

This week I’d like to share 10 simple tips that helped me – and still help me – to become a better listener.

I hope they will help you and your relationships too.

The Daily Man-Up: There’s No Time Like The Present

There’s no time like the present. Stop waiting for whatever it is that you think you’re waiting for, and make a change today.

Let this be the moment that you decide to act. Let it be the moment that you choose to finally change your life. It’s time to shift from "I’m going to" to "I am."

Stop waiting for whatever it is that you think you’re waiting for because it isn’t coming. There’s no big moment that changes your life. Stop waiting for a sign. If you want a sign, this is it. If you needed a wakeup call, this is it.

It’s so easy to get caught in the trap of thinking, "This can wait. I can do this next week/month/year," but that day never comes. If you’re looking for an excuse, you will find one.

The Daily Man-Up: How to Love Yourself Mentally

Why People Don’t Love Themselves, Mentally

Everything starts in the mind. If you don’t know how to utilize your mind, your thoughts, and develop it for self-love, it doesn’t matter what changes you try to make for yourself, what methods you try to implement into your life, you’ll fail. Your mindset is the starting point to any significant change in life.

The problem with a lot of mindsets, is they’re usually traumatized at a young age. People go through tough shit. They face unyielding forms of physical, mental, emotional, and psychological abuse. And going through that abuse, on a consistent basis shapes their personal beliefs of self, their mindset.

The Daily Man-Up: Spark

July 8, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Quotes |

Spark

I always resented all the years, the hours, the
minutes I gave them as a working stiff, it
actually hurt my head, my insides, it made me
dizzy and a bit crazy — I couldn’t understand the
murdering of my years
yet my fellow workers gave no signs of
agony, many of them even seemed satisfied, and
seeing them that way drove me almost as crazy as
the dull and senseless work.
