Some people try to avoid rejection in every aspect of their lives. They seek perfection and success in every endeavor. But all they do is set themselves up to be unprepared for rejection.

Because once they encounter rejection, it shatters their reality. They’re so used to doing everything perfectly that a rejection means that something is wrong with them. It becomes a big, personal deal — even if it’s not.

You need to accept that rejection is inevitable. It is simply a natural part of life that we all face. The strongest individuals understand this and constantly seek out the possibility of rejection. That’s the only way to internalize that rejection is temporary and a source of power.

The Daily Man-Up: How To Get Yourself Out Of Bed On Time, Consistently, Forever.

Why is it important to get out of bed on time consistently?

I assume that you and I are already in agreement that getting out of bed on time is absolutely KEY to most other forms of long-term success.

But if not, here’s why:

Getting out of bed on time, with the FIRST alarm, means that you can start your day with intention. It means you’re getting up on purpose as opposed to being dragged or forced out of bed. It means you CHOOSE to get out of bed. It will subtly influence how the rest of your entire day plays out.

You gotta go for the kiss.

If you attempt it and it comes out awkward, whatever, screw it. you tried. if she likes you, she won’t care.

If you attempt it and comes out beautifully done, great awesome! you did it!

Regardless, if you’re feeling it, go for the kiss on the first or second date.

It will take you from being seen as a friend to now being seen as a romantic and sexual option.

And that’s ultimately the goal to being in a relationship right?

The Daily Man-Up: How to Be Less Socially Awkward

November 1, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Self-Improvement |

Growing up, I was never a particularly social or outgoing guy. I wasn’t one of the “popular” kids in high school or college and I leaned toward an introverted personality type. Quiet, reserved, and a little shy.

For most of my early 20’s, I found myself just nodding along and agreeing with what other people said because I’d never put in the effort to develop my own unique personality.

Whenever I was talking with someone and a third person entered the conversation, I quickly faded into obscurity while everyone else joked and chatted.

I assumed the role of the “Silent Third Wheel”, a sort of spectator in social settings…someone sitting on the sidelines rather than acting as a leader of conversations and interactions.

It’s natural to have anxiety about the future, especially when things aren’t do that” switch those thoughts into “I am good enough” and “I can do anything.” The word “not” maybe the reason you haven’t taken action towards a better life.

Another reason why we may have fear about the future is because of what has happened in our past. We must do our best to not allow our past experiences to determine our present actions and choices. Learn from the past and move forward.

It’s not about forgetting what has happened in your past, it’s using your past as the fuel to move towards a better future. We all go through hard times but it’s how you grow from those experiences that will determine who you’ll become.

The Daily Man-Up: Why You Should Learn to Walk Away

October 30, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up, Dating Advice |

Many men have fragile egos when it comes to women. I’m not judging, my pride used to get the best of me, too. I couldn’t handle the reality of being rejected or losing a girl — it was one of my worst fears. I lived with a scarcity mentality.

Scarcity mentality is the belief that there’s a limited number of opportunities in your life. With women, if you miss out on a single chance, you’ll never get another like it. What happens is that you view your connections as win or lose situations. It’s black or white:

“If I don’t get this girl, I’m a failure and a loser. I’ll be alone forever. But if I do, I’m a real man and a winner.”

You then do everything in your power to “win” girls over. You will chase endlessly, pretend to be a friend for months or years, disrespect your time, and even let yourself get walked over — all because you can’t let go of this one girl.

Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.

The Daily Man-Up: Overcoming The Need To Be Liked

There are way too many opinions and too many voices in this world. However, have you ever considered that you don’t have to pay mind to everything?

Silence can be a gift, and you need wisdom to know when it is necessary. Sometimes, we have to let go of everything we hear and go on with our lives, not caring about what other people might think about us.

Ultimately, your opinion of yourself is the only thing that should be able to make or break your day, your mood, your drive, your image and your life. How you see yourself will determine your limit and how much you get out of life.

The Daily Man-Up: What Does Confidence Look Like To A Woman?

October 25, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up |

(photo: @mehdizadeh)

Physically, confident guys are much more calm or deliberate in their movements. There’s not tonnes of figiting etc. They just seem to be able to settle into a position and become relaxed. This also goes for walking – which comes across as more deliberate and natural. They’re also not generally concerned about how much space they occupy. Not like, randomly sprawling, but just able to keep square shoulders and longer strides. Especially as a woman, you can tell how confident they are when they’re hitting on you, based on the space they’re comfortable taking up. More confident guys tend to start closer to you (for instance when they sit down next to you at a bar), and not be so electrically aware of touching. Unconfident guys tend to get a bit jumpy, and sometimes almost glaze over when space starts to be closed.
