The Daily Man-Up: If You’re Worried About What To Do With Your Life

September 23, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Advice |

As a person who has spent YEARS worried, stressed and anxious about “what do I do with my life?” and about what choices I should or should not make, allow me to suggest a shift or two in your perspective.

There are no dead-ends in life.

There’s a very simple truth to remember here, which is that you don’t really ever “end up” anywhere. For example we’re afraid that if we make the wrong career decision, we’ll “end up” at some sort of cul de sac where we’re out of options, out of opportunity, out of avenues for growth, out of resources. Or perhaps if we choose the wrong college major, we might have wasted too much time only to find out that it was the wrong choice.

The Daily Man-Up: How To Become The Best Version Of Yourself

September 20, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: Self-Improvement |

1) Love yourself. You deserve the best. You should strive for your potential – the most fulfilled version of yourself – and that potential is virtually limitless. This is the single most important mindset to adopt, as it serves as a foundation for literally everything else. It’s not a case of arrogance or entitlement, but in the sense that you would want the best for a family member of SO that you deeply love. A lot of people self-sabotage (often inadvertently), and complain that they can’t break free of negative habits… I believe this is largely due to the fact that deep down they’ve built up so much self-hatred that they don’t even feel worthy of attaining their goals and living their most fulfilling life. Fuck that. I don’t care what your backstory is, you are worthy. I am. We all are. You wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t believe you were.

The Daily Man-Up: “If You’re On Time, You’re Late”

“BUT DAD, our coach told us to be at the field by 9:30! It’s not even 10 minutes away why do we have to leave right now?” I groaned as my dad packed my helmet and extra-small shoulder pads into the car. It was only 8:45 A.M.

I was already pissed off. First, he wakes me up at 7:30 when I totally could’ve slept until 8. Now he’s making us leave a half an hour early to drive to my game that’s at most 10 stinkin’ minutes away?! What is this madness?!?

“If you’re on time, you’re late.” He calmly replied as he sat in the driver’s seat.

The Daily Man-Up: Conquer Your Inner Bitch

joe rogan advice for men

Felt like shit today. I felt lethargic, and I didn’t want to run, but I forced myself to just do it, and now I feel 100% better. I would think after all these years of forcing myself to do shit I know I should do but don’t feel like doing that I wouldn’t indulge those weak thoughts and it wouldn’t be so much of a struggle. Not the case though. The only thing that’s changed is now I know for sure I won’t listen to my inner bitch, and I’ll just go out there and get it done, and I’ll always feel better afterwards. Getting over that feeling of procrastination and being lethargic is one of the great factors in living a full and energetic life. Learn to force yourself to do shit. #conqueryourinnerbitch

That can be a very hard feeling.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, you could be 16, 32, 48 or 60; the sense of loss from having wasted time in distractions, lethargy, addiction, procrastination can be crushing.

In this post however, I want to speak with you on this subject and show you how to heal and move on. Because here’s the truth of the matter: the sooner you can get over it, the sooner you can get on with your life and move onto the next thing.

In online dating, you’re going to competing with a massive male population. Too many men bombard women with boring statements, lewd comments, and over-the-top sappiness. The best thing you can do is be interesting, intriguing, and please, show some class.

The Daily Man-Up: Embrace The Struggle

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.
