Today I have a warning and some advice to all modern men. The media and society are lying to you, and their objective is to get you to question your abilities. They will only win or achieve their goal if you’re not in the game. There’s nothing wrong with being a man, so don’t make them doubt your ability. They try to make you doubt as our society has become mentally, physically, and emotionally weak.
Strong-minded men need to make sure that they lead in the face of adversity and cancel culture. You can accomplish anything, but you must understand that achieving things takes hard work and confidence. You have to be willing to do the work when you’re not getting rewarded and focus on things that other people aren’t willing to do.
Don’t believe the hype!
Do not believe the hype that every man has it figured out at 22 years old. I’m 46 years old and still trying to figure it out. Keep your eyes wide open and be willing to do what is right instead of what is easy. Do not believe false prophets or people that say making money is easy. Not every dollar you earn is hard, and if anybody tries to tell you that it’s easy, you need to run the other way. Do not give them your money.
The internet is full of fake gurus that claim they have figured it out and will teach you. Before buying anything, do some Google searches. Nothing that these gurus are teaching you is for free. Do not pay them or go to their damn seminars.
You do not need a perfect body by sacrificing long-term health. Do not believe the hype. Young idiots are taking testosterone and performance dancing drugs just to look good. These will impact them long-term, which is hard to imagine when you’re young.
Stay away from social media
Young men currently have a lot of pressure on them, and I’m so thankful that I didn’t have social media when I was growing up. I don’t know if I would have been as confident. So don’t spend so much time on media because the more you do, the worse you could feel about yourself. It can cause you to compare yourself to others where you won’t be satisfied with yourself and where you’re not happy with who you are.
The only person in the world you need to make happy and the only person you should be comparing yourself to is yourself. Stop worrying about being cool, and instead focus on being kind. Good people are better than pretty people.
Despite the whole hustle culture, most people are not built for entrepreneurship. If I’m being honest, there’s nothing wrong with getting a great job with weekends off. But don’t be afraid to take risks because nothing great was ever accomplished without being a little bit scared and uncomfortable.
Being a winner vs being a loser
Learn to apologize when you make a mistake and also learn to deal with your issues. If issues prevent you from moving forward, you must fight to be happy and fulfilled. Don’t live in the past. Also, don’t let the past define who you are. Move forward in life and figure it out. Life isn’t fair, but you get out of it what you put into it.
Life is filled with winners and losers, but if you’re a loser, don’t say you should have one. If you’re not willing to put in the time or work, you won’t have the integrity.
Do not fall prey to my mentality. The world needs more confident and strong men willing to do the work and take responsibility. The truth is we were all the little guys at some point. You have to be willing and confident as well as bold and strong, so you can take action when the opportunity presents itself. Don’t ever allow anybody, whether or not on social media or in society, tell you that you’re not incredible because you are. Society and social media are scared of you being in the game. Nobody else can win because you’re the best. That’s my warning.
