“Where do you want to eat?”
“I don’t know where do you want to go?”
“I really don’t care at all, you choose.”

Does this conversation sound familiar? There’s nothing more frustrating to girls than a guy who can’t make up his mind.

Women love a man who can lead. A man who takes charge of things and is strong yet respectful. Don’t believe it? Look at nearly every romance novel written in the last 50 years. I’m not talking about being a control-freak here, but rather a man who is confident with himself and his choices. Women are attracted to a guy who knows what he wants, is honest about his passions, and is willing to make the tough decisions when needed.

The Daily Man-Up: Don’t Rely On Motivation For Anything

Because motivation is fleeting and unreliable. Discipline, however, is unyielding. Force yourself to follow through.

“I don’t want to ” shouldn’t even be a factor when considering whether or nor not to work out today. Eliminate your personal wants and just abide by a set of life rules that you set in stone for yourself, and follow through with those.

A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.

The Daily Man-Up: The Power Of Choice

Think about this one for a second…. @nicksanto534 was born with one arm and no legs. In his mind, there’s nothing he can’t do… and he’s right. He’s right because he does everything he sets his mind to. Competed as an amateur wrestler, motivational speaker, trains like a beast and today he competes in his first bodybuilding contest. We chatted after my workout about the power of choice. He said, I could’ve been pissed at the world for being born like this, but instead I choose to live life to the fullest, be happy and crush everything I put my mind to and hopefully, I can inspire people to do the same. Yes sir. Life deals us cards on a daily basis, but we always get to decide how we’re gonna play ’em. Keep crushing life my man and inspiring all those around you. And thank you for helping frame my perspective on life just a little bit more.

Initial dating section:

1: communicate what you want and think clearly and openly. If the person you’re dating demands that you read their mind I can’t help you there. On our first date we agreed that we would never expect the other to know what we haven’t verbalized and it is a total life saver.

Why don’t people work out? Why don’t people diet? Why don’t people get up early? Why don’t people actually study?

Because all those things make them feel uncomfortable.

As the quality of our lives improve with the advancement of technology and the ever rising quality of living, a disciplined person becomes more and more rare.

In study group at university

“I should go ask her about this thing so I talk to her..

Your alarm goes off at 6:30 am.

Stumbling out of bed, you brew a strong cup of coffee to get through the day. Sitting in your car, you pause before starting the engine. “I can’t keep doing this”, you think to yourself.

What we want most, the deep stuff, the meaning, the purpose, the things that are more than just feelings of wellness like happiness that can be here and gone faster than a fart in the wind, are won, they do not simply happen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Most wish and wait, but the thing we want most is found where we least want to find it, in struggle, in effort, in discipline, in NOT submitting to desires in the moment at the behest of our greater desires for our life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The simple answer to the question above…confidence.

Yes, the elusive quality that every woman says they’re looking for in a man. Guys think that it equates to being aloof, emotionally distant, and kind of an asshole – but those are just insecurities posing as confidence.
