If you’re a man, you have to agree there’s something magical about women. Like a beautiful sunset, a snow-capped mountain or a gorgeous painting, the right girl will make you lose your breath.

It’s all too easy to get overwhelmed by this feminine beauty, whether internal or external. When this happens, men put women on pedestals and treat them like objects of admiration instead of real people.

In my case, it took some rough wake-up calls to realize that girls are, more or less, just like us. When I finally “got it,” girls started hitting on me a lot more often; my relationships with girls improved tremendously.

I’d like the same change to happen for you. To make that happen, here are 5 reasons to stop putting women on pedestals.

1. This Just In: Women Are Human!

Imagine you’re on a date with a girl who ignores everything you say and just keeps complimenting your looks. No matter how amazing or into you she is, you’ll be creeped out since she likes you superficially and doesn’t care about the real you.

This is how girls feel about guys who place them on pedestals.

Little things become big things.

When you justify and allow even little things into your life which your intuition warns you against, you permit a virus to enter your life. It spreads to other areas.

When you introduce a change to any system, you simultaneously change the whole system. The other areas of the system will begin arranging themselves to better fit with the new.

Going against your higher intuitive voice is a slippery-slope. You don’t realize day to day how out of whack things are really getting.

Any small problem or indulgence cannot be viewed in isolation. It reflects something much bigger and much deeper. Sometimes it takes an intense wake-up call to become aware of the signals.

But once your eyes are open, and you’re in a place to hear your inner voice, it all becomes painfully obvious. You’ve known all along you were living against yourself, but you continued to justify.

People give more thought to choosing their next Amazon purchase than to choosing their next relationship.

When it comes to romance, everyone is in such a hurry. You jump into a relationship with the first person who shows you interest. You commit to being exclusive before you’ve even gotten a chance to really know each other.

I think that’s insane! You’re playing Russian roulette and hoping that this person is going to be a good match for you.

I know you’re eager to find love, but being in an unhappy relationship is much worse than being alone. Especially if you’re trying to find someone you plan to be with forever, you shouldn’t just settle for anyone. Choosing the wrong person will affect your entire life.

The right partner can help you grow to the best version of yourself. The wrong partner can bring out the worst in you.

The right partner can support you. The wrong partner can use you and leave you more isolated than when you were single.

The right partner can make every experience more beautiful and satisfying than you could imagine. The wrong partner can strip out any shred of happiness from any moment.

So if the difference between a right partner and a wrong one is so obvious, why do we still find ourselves stuck in unfulfilling relationships?

Why do we throw away time like it will last forever…?

Every day millions of men like you wake up and run around in jobs they hate, so they can buy things they don’t need, to impress people on social media platforms they don’t belong on.

That’s a life stuck in the rat race. The people who really love you will love you for the man you are, and not the material items you own. This has always been the truth – but so many men choose to buy into the idea that “the more I own, the more of a man I am.”

And that idea slowly kills every one of those men. Life is short, and there are so few things that really matter in the end.

What will you take with you to the grave, except the memories, experiences and joy you had while you were in this world?

We all know what really matters to us. But we often choose to ignore those things, because then we’d have to look in the mirror and face the scary reality that our life is nothing like we hoped it’d be when we were 10 years old full of innocent hopes and dreams.

Being a little bitch has nothing to do with sex. It’s about seeing yourself as a victim. And while different aspects of society are creating victims from thin air, you can’t fall into that trap no matter who you are or what’s been done to you or what you’re told has been done to you.

You can’t be a little bitch, an entitled little pansy if you expect to live a good, flourishing life. You won’t acquire any of the aspects of living a good life, be it happiness, accomplishment, purpose, or value, if you’re constantly whining and crying about your plight.

So rather than go through dozens of reason why you shouldn’t think of yourself as a victim or be a chronic-complainer, let’s discuss 5 simple quotes that if rehearsed can be life-changing.

1. A Gem Cannot be Polished without Friction

A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man without trials. ~ Seneca

The disasters in your life that you want to avoid, the failure, the loss, are what will polish you into a better man. You not only need to endure them, you need to look for the opportunities within them.

Trials are what make us. They are what teach us to grow, evolve, and win. While the masses try and avoid trials by living safe lives or by seeing themselves as victims of circumstance, become tougher.

As you dare mightier, you’re going to encounter mightier obstacles. The alternative is to exist in a safe space apart from differing ideas or challenging tribulations. Existence isn’t life, it’s a purgatorial state awaiting death.

Don’t be a little bitch and sell yourself short. You need trials, don’t run from them, aim higher so you’re taken through more of them.

Life isn’t fair.

Get the fuck over it.

Complaining has zero positive impact on your life.

You waste valuable time, you put yourself in a negative state of mind, make yourself really unattractive, and repel people like magnets because frankly…

No one else cares, nobody wants to hear about it.

Not your best friends. Not your mom. Not your girlfriend. No one.

What your “harmless” whining does is create a victim mentality in your head, which leads to an undeserved sense of entitlement.

People who let this sense of entitlement dominate their psyche tend to avoid the realities of life – stopping growth right in its tracks.

The reality of life is – no matter how special and unique you think your problems are, there are millions of other people who are going through the exact same shit as you, and millions more who are going through worse.

The sooner you can recognize this truth, the sooner you can reclaim control of your life.

Most men are content to get their haircut at whatever chain salon they happen to wander into, and accept whatever cut the stylist happens to give them. Fifteen bucks later, you’re on your way.

A better route, especially as you leave college and begin to get more serious about the importance of your appearance in your professional career and love life, is to develop a long-term relationship with a quality barber who can take your hairstyle up a notch. The difference between a chain-salon haircut and one from a quality barber can be really significant, and the difference a quality haircut makes in your appearance is quite underestimated — it can definitely change how you look.

So make it a habit to go to a local barbershop and establish a rapport with a professionally-trained barber who specializes in men’s hair, can help you figure out the style you want, and will come to know your unique hair over the course of many cuttings.

I can remember punching, but doing it more so out of reflex than because of conscious thought. The ringing in my ears was the only sound that I could hear, though I could see the crowd cheering ringside, and I could feel my opponent’s punches landing.

I’d just been dropped in a fight for the first and only time, and my reaction was as it should be: I got right back up and started fighting. Had I stayed down and accepted defeat, I’d never know if I was a real fighter or just a wannabe, a warrior or a pretender.

It’s in pain and struggle that we experience growth. Pain, struggle and defeat show us more about who we are and what we’re capable of doing than times of ease. We are given an opportunity to grow stronger in pain. Whether we seize that opportunity will either lead to our further development, or usher us toward our weakening, our decline.

If tribulation is how we grow stronger, then why do we avoid it? Why do we seek ease when struggle is what leads to our success?
