Cultivate your edge.

Step in your native, original bad-assery. Sit in the center-most point of you, now.

Do you remember being 8 or 10 or 12 years old and not giving a fig about anybody or anything? Remember knowing that you’re the shit, that the world truly is your inheritance and belongs to you? Remember that freedom that comes from knowing that you can do anything or go anywhere? Let’s boot that program up now.

I’ll explain what I mean by ‘cultivate you edge’.

I’ll start with cultivate.

The Daily Man-Up: Stop Seeking Comfort

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

joe rogan dont seek comfort

I think that there’s a lot of people out there that think somehow or another you’re gonna get to someplace where you’re living in silk sheets and you’re getting your toes done when someone’s dropping grapes into your mouth. I don’t want that, I’ve never wanted that. That guy’s not gonna be happy. He’s gonna be bored. An hour into the grapes "you can get those fucking grapes away from me. Stop painting my toes. What am I doing in this bed?" I got to do something. I’m not stimulated.

The human organism, the animal that we are, needs constant stimulation, because it evolved trying to find food and escaped enemies. And find shelter, escape nature, escape the elements, try to survive.

When I see a loser, I see some guy who’s 43 years old, lives in his parent’s basement. He fucking hates the world. That was a baby man. This is a baby that somebody just gave shitty nutrients to. Whether it’s nutrients in the form of food or in the form of thoughts and ideas and examples. And this kid developed these horrible self-defeating patterns of behavior that have led them to this point. Or they’re this middle-aged person with no future and no idea of how to get out of this rut and probably never will escape it and might just wind up sucking on a gun.

The Daily Man-Up: What To Do After Your Partner Cheats On You

November 11, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Dating Advice |

I have been through this. I found out my wife had a threesome with a friend and his wife, then caught her with another guy. The first time I found out, I felt like you feel. Like someone has torn your soul out of your chest, like the most precious thing you had in your life was stolen from you. You feel like you will never get it back, like you’re made of glass and someone demolished you. I know how you feel.

I fucking hate Friday. I really do. I’m blown away by people celebrating the end of the week.

Like the weekend is your escape from your reality.

At its basic form, if you genuinely celebrate Friday, you need to rethink your entire fucking game. You need to rethink life. I mean, it’s super simple.

Right now, there’s so many people debating the pedestal of workaholics and hustle and grind. I think it’s actually an interesting conversation about work-life balance. But I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about if you genuinely dislike what you do so much that you beg for Friday. This has to stop.

The Daily Man-Up: How to Stop Being Devastated By Rejection

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.

November 5, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up, Self-Improvement |

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.
