“Hustle, believe, receive”

Key Points

1. You Have to Start with a Dream and Believe It 

Before you can achieve anything in this life of real substance or value, you have to start with a dream.

If you have achieved success today, even if you do not realize it, it’s because you started with a dream.

You started with the dream that you would be able to support your family while still making time to be with them, you started with a dream of owning your own company, or marrying the girl of your dreams.

If you want something, you have to first dream it, write it down as a goal, visualize it, and believe that it can happen.

2. The Hustle Will be Hard

Look, becoming successful sucks.

There is no way around it, if you want to be successful you will have to make sacrifices, you will have to work through vacations, skip dates with girlfriends, cut out friendships that are not serving you, miss a few episodes of the Walking Dead.

Success is not easy, but if you expect the worst up front, then whenever you are actually in the trenches and the shit hits the fan, you will be able to stay calm and collected because you were already prepared.

3. You Have to Have Positive Pessimism and Patience

The two things that will help you on your journey to success almost more than anything else are a sense of positive pessimism and patience.

If you hope that things will work out, but realistically expect them to flop, then you will not be disappointed when a deal doesn’t go your way. And if you have patience, you will be able to realize that this was merely the first of many deals and you will have many more chances to achieve your dreams.

4. Change Your Crew

Want to know the quickest way to change your income, body, relationships, or spiritual life?

Change who you spend time with. If you spend time around winners and hustlers, you will become a winner and a hustler.

If you spend time around athletes and casanovas, you will become an athlete and a casanova.

Likewise, if you spend your time around a bunch of lazy, goalless, slobs…

Well… that is what you will become.

Change your crew, change your life.

5. Don’t Allow Age to Affect Your Dreams 

No matter whether you are young or old, you are never too young or too old to start pursuing your dreams. Most successful entrepreneurs did not have their big home run until well after thirty, many of them as late as 40 and 50.

And on the opposite end of the spectrum, there are many young entrepreneurs who are probably younger than your little brother making millions of dollars a year.

Age is not a factor to success. Success is blind to your age, gender, color, sexuality, socioeconomic status, background, and damn near anything else that you believe is holding you back.

Don’t allow anything to affect your dreams.

“Your income is directly proportional to the need for what you do and your ability to do it” ~Jim Rohn

Key Points

1. Circumstances do not Dictate Your Fulfillment

We live in a world where when people are unhappy, they often make rash decisions that can put them in a financial sink hole. And while it should always be your goal to live a life that is full of fulfillment and joy and to love the work that you do, sometimes you need to wait.

But just because you are not where you want to be, does not mean that you cannot have fulfillment and joy in the present moment.

Learn to reframe your current situation and find meaning within it.

If you are at a job  you hate, then see the job as a means to earn the money you need to start your dream business, take that year abroad, or provide for the people you love.

When you are able to reframe things and find the positivity within them, like Victor Frankl in the Nazi death camps, you will be able to find meaning in any situation.

2. Learn to Develop Inspiration through Dissatisfaction

If you are unhappy with where you are, and you really are ready to make a change. If things still suck even though you have changed the situation in your head, then you have to learn to draw inspiration from dissatisfaction.

If you are unhappy, use your pain to fuel you towards the pleasure of something new.

If you are single, use that pain to get you off your butt and out into the world meeting women. If you are broke, use that pain to earn and keep more income.

3. You Don’t Have to Pick Happiness or Profit 

So often in our modern world, people are lead to believe that you have to sacrifice all of the joy from your life now, for profit later.

This simply isn’t true.

You can have both, you just have to want it bad enough.

You can make a living, while traveling, and doing work that you love! You can have it all, but you have to make the definite decision and pursue it with all of your soul.

4. Figure Out Where Your Money Is Going and What Possible Sources of Income You Have 

If you are struggling with finances, one of the best things that you can do is to take an honest stock of your spending habits. Where is your money going, where should it be going, and where do you want it to go?

Cutting out a few dollars here and there on things that aren’t truly important to you can be the funding you need for your new business or that trip to Thailand with your friends.

Once you know where your money is going, it is time to figure out what possible sources of income you have? Could you do some freelance writing? Uber driving? Air BnB rentals?

What options do you have and which ones will bring the most satisfaction and income?

5. You Have to Reprogram Your Brain

Your subconscious mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

If you can learn to reprogram it to eliminate all of the crap you were indoctrinated with from society, you will be able to live a life that you never thought possible.

It will require work and some deep digging that may be painful for some of you..

But it will be worth it.

“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are” ~Anais Nin

Key Points

1. Authenticity is Knowing Who You Are and Accepting It 

We live in a day and age where people will do anything except be themselves.

People often don’t like what they see in the mirror and instead of working to change it, they look for ways that they can cover it up and pretend to be something that they are not.

Authenticity is knowing who you are, the good, bad, and ugly, and accepting it. Embracing what you can’t change and working on the things that you can.

True authenticity will set you free and allow you to attract the right things into your life in business and relationships.

2. Inauthenticity Ruins Relationships

The quickest way to ruin a relationship is to be unauthentic.

Tell your significant other that you don’t care about something when you do,or  bend over backwards for them because it is what they want instead of telling them what is on your mind and you will be in for a miserable and short-lived relationship that brings more pain to your life than joy.

3. Intention is Everything

At KFM, we are all about destroying the nice guy and embracing your inner warrior, however, the reason we want to kill the nice guy is that this is rarely an authentic representation of who you are.

Most “nice guys” offer love with expectation, not because they are a genuine and loving person.

However, for some of you, you genuinely are a giving person who expects nothing in return. You compliment the girl because you like her shoes, not because you expect her to sleep with you.

You compliment the girl because you like her shoes, not because you expect her to sleep with you. You tell someone you love them because you do, not because you need something. You give of yourself because it makes you feel alive, not because you need anything in return.

If that is genuinely you, then embrace it and love that about yourself, because it is a rare gift.

4. Take Baby Steps to Success

If you are looking to achieve success in business, relationships, or health, learn the power of baby steps.

To become the man you need to be will require massive amounts of action, however, if you eat the elephant one bite at a time you will be able to become who you want to be quicker than you ever thought possible.

5. The Key to Authenticity is Calming the Mind 

The best way to start embracing authenticity is through some form of meditation or other practice that stills your mind. Whenever you are in your head you are thinking about other’s opinions and if you are doing things “right”

However, when your mind is still, you are able to disassociate with yourself and see things for what they truly are, and that is where your true authentic power will come from.

Favorite Success Quote

“There is nothing wrong with you and you are not alone”

Key Points

1. Your Biggest Weakness is Your Biggest Strength

Anyone who was great, past or present, has always had some weakness that others thought was crippling, yet they somehow learned to turn them into one of their greatest assets.

Einstein was told he would never amount to anything because he did poorly in school due to the way that he processed and understood information, and now we have quantum physics.

Richard Branson was told that because of his dyslexia he would never be successful, and yet because of his unique way of understanding the world, we have hundreds of industry-changing companies under the Virgin umbrella.

Anyone who tells you that you cannot succeed because of x, needs a swift kick in the ass, because odds are, the very reason that they told you you couldn’t succeed, will be the reason that you can.

2. Success Leaves Clues but Most of the Clues You Hear About are Bullshit

There is a simplicity to success, yet we tend to complicate it. You have hundreds if not thousands of unsuccessful people speaking on stage telling you that the way to achieve what you want is to create unrealistic goals and recite them 12 times a day.

Bullshit.

Success is simple, it is about eliminating the toxic things from your life and replacing them with the habits of champions. It is about waking up early, working hard, staying focused,  and developing your skill set. Anything else is icing on the cake.

3. Don’t Focus on Being Busy Focus on Outcomes

So often in business, we wear busyness like a badge of honor, but this is a backwards way of approaching it. The longer you are in business, the more outcomes you should be creating, the more revenue you should be producing, and the less busy you should be.

Focus on creating outcomes each day instead of a menial to do list.

4. Daily Habits are Everything 

Success boils down to your positive habits outweighing your negative ones, plain and simple.

One of the best habits you can cultivate is to wake up early and spend an hour planning in solitude, starting by asking yourself these two questions…

“What is my intention for the day”

And

“Where was I uncomfortable yesterday”

Knowing what you intention is for the day, meaning the outcomes you want to create and knowing what made you uncomfortable in the days past will allow you to have an accurate view of what is necessary to your day and the changes that you need to make.

5. Start Taking Care of Your Health 

You have nothing if you do not have your health.

If you learn to take care of your body through hyper hydration, and properly fueling yourself, you will have far more success, you will perform better in life and business, and of course, you will have more sex 😉

Favorite Success Quote

“Anything that does not bring me alive is too small for me” ~David Whyte

Key Points

1. Personal Growth Requires Giving to the World

On your path to ultimate personal development, you will reach a place where you realize that you can no longer focus solely on yourself and you have to begin giving back to truly impact the world.

To grow into the best version of yourself, you have to give back to others, you have to be a servant to the world, and you have to be willing to occasionally put the needs of those less fortunate than you above your own.

2. You Need to Know What You Really Want

If you do not know where you want to go, then it doesn’t much matter what you are doing on a day to day basis.

You have to have a vision for your life and for who you want to be. You have to have goals and a plan to achieve them, based off of your desires and your dreams, not society’s, your parent’s or your friend’s desires and dreams.

3. You Have to Take Care of Yourself First 

While we have already said that personal development requires that you give to the world, you cannot fully give to the world until you have given to yourself. Until you are taking care of yourself in mind, body, and spirit, until you are a little bit selfish and prioritize your needs, you will not have enough to truly give to the world.

4. Focus on What You Want, not What You Don’t

What you focus on expands.

If you want to achieve your dream you have to focus on the things that you want in your life, not the things that you don’t want. Instead of focusing on how you are out of shape and overweight, focus on how you can’t wait until you are a shredded, athletic beast.

Instead of focusing on how you are broke, focus on how you can’t wait until you have more than enough money to live life on your terms.

It’s just like riding a bike, look where you want to go, not at the tree nearby.

5.Your Language Creates Your Reality

If you are constantly telling yourself that you are a worthless piece of shit…. Odds are, that’s how you will feel.

If you are constantly telling yourself that you are not where you want to be however you are going to put in the work to achieve your dreams, that is what will start to happen.

What you tell yourself, you believe. Be sure you are telling yourself an empowering story.

Kim Coates is a Canadian-American actor who has worked in both Canadian and American films and television series. He has worked on Broadway portraying Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire and in the lead role of Macbeth performed at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. He also starred as Alexander “Tig” Trager in the FX series Sons of Anarchy.

Key Points

1. Follow Your Bliss

Life is too short to live every day doing things that you dislike. If you love something, do it, end of story.

If you want to be an actor, act. If you want to be a musician, play music. If you want to start a business, do it! Don’t let anyone or anything hold you back from pursuing what you love.

Follow your bliss, and the rest will fall into place.

2. Be Willing to Wait Until You Are Ready

Once you have committed to a path, whether it is business, acting, athletics etc. be willing to wait until you are ready to take the big leap.

For Kim, he continued to master his craft of acting on stage for 8 years before he took the leap into television.

For you, it may mean working an apprenticeship for a few years before you start your business, it may mean playing local gigs with your band for a few years before you quit your job and try touring.

Don’t rush things. Excellence takes time.

3. Failure is Not an Option

Success is simple, you simply have to remove the possibility of failure from your mind. When failure is no longer an option, success is inevitable. Once you have started following your bliss and prepared yourself for the leap, it is time to burn your boats and leave yourself no choice but to succeed.

Whether that is moving to a new city, quitting your job, or investing all of your dispensable cash into a business, when you give yourself no way out, you will succeed.

4. Keep Your Head on Straight

Once you start to see success, it is easy to let it go to your head. You have to be diligent in making sure that you keep your head on straight. Stay away from the masses living the rock star lifestyle who will end up ruining their career within a few short years.

If you want longevity in whatever path you select, you have to continually grow and avoid things that are detrimental to your public image and success.

5. A Real Man Listens More and Talks Less 

You were given two ears and one mouth for a reason, use them in that proportion.

Favorite Success Quote

“Happiness is a way of thinking”

Key Points

1. Your Life is Not Yours 

A mistake that many of us make when we think about our lives is to believe that our lives are truly ours. We did nothing to earn this life, we did not take out a loan that we are forced to repay, we were simply given the gift of life and the responsibility to make the most of it.

You have to realize that your life does not belong to you, it belongs to the world and to the people around you. It belongs to the people that you serve and the people you love.

2. You Must Take Care of Yourself Physically

Before you can truly serve anyone else, you have to take care of yourself, and this begins with your body.

Taking care of yourself physically is imperative, and rather straightforward. If you can get 8 hours of high-quality sleep a night, eat a diet of 80% whole foods, eliminate drugs, limit alcohol, get regular exercise, and swallow your pride when you are feeling sick and go see a doctor, then you are well on your way to the healthiest version of you ever.

3. Realize Your Insignificance in the Universe 

Whenever people take something personally, they fail to understand one of the most important facts about life: You don’t matter that much.

You are one of 7 billion, on one of God knows how many planets. You are a tiny speck in the universe.

This is not to say that you are not important to the people around you, but rather to say that you truly hold little significance in this universe. Your flight was not late because the world is out to get you, that cute girl didn’t give you her number because the stars are aligning for you and you alone.

Life simply happens and you get to take part in it. Realize this, realize your insignificance, and learn to live with a sense of humility and gratitude for where you are.

4. Taking Care of Your Body and Spirit Will Create Success in the Rest of Your Life 

Whenever you decide to become successful and start pursuing success at the expense of your health and spiritual well being, you are setting yourself up for failure.

You have to take care of yourself first before you can truly achieve success. If you are physically and spiritually healthy, your performance will sky rocket, your happiness will increase, and you will be able to accomplish more than you had ever dreamed.

5. Nothing is Good or Bad 

All things in life are simply our perception of them. Nothing is inherently good or bad, it is just the story that we tell ourselves about things. With that knowledge, what would happen if you started to reframe everything in life as a blessing? To start to see the good in all things no matter how difficult they may be.

I dare you to try it for a week and see what happens. You might just be amazed.

Favorite Success Quote

“You have power over your mind, not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength.” ~Marcus Aurelius

Key Points

1. Don’t Let Growth become a Drug

Whenever we embark on our personal growth journies, it is easy to allow growth to become a drug. It is easy to get addicted to the surges of growth without ever stopping to appreciate them or stopping to realize that they are becoming a crutch.

While constant and never ending growth is a wonderful thing, it can also become how we deal with issues in our lives.

Struggling at work? Just go to the gym!

Relationships suck? Just build your business and ignore it.

Growth is good, just make sure that you focus on making small changes overtime and don’t allow it to consume you.

2. Presence Destroys Anxiety

If you are suffering from anxiety, you are really suffering from lack of presence. Take a few deep breaths, pause, reflect, smile, you will be amazed at how much a little active meditation can change the way you feel about things.

3. Balance is Key

Life is a juggling act, and you have to learn to balance things out to succeed.

It doesn’t matter if you have millions if your health is in the shitter. It doesn’t matter if you are shredded as hell if you can’t get and keep a girlfriend, and it really doesn’t matter if you are sleeping with beautiful women if you have no money and no future outside of meaningless one night stands.

You need to learn to balance all areas of your life, starting with health and relationships. If you can master those two, the money will eventually come, and it’s a lot easier to be broke whenever you have good health and great people around you to help, then it is to be rich and have poor health and bad friends.

4. Share Your Struggles

You must learn to share the struggles you are facing. You have to confide in people that you trust who can asses things honestly for you, help you when you fall down, and admit that they have probably faced the same thing.

Burderns are easier to carry when they are shared, and learning to speak honestly with people you trust will take a huge weight off of your shoulders.

5. The Key to Success is Self-reliance

No matter what you are doing in life, you have to cultivate self realiance. If you cannot be happy with yourself whenever you have nothing, you will not be fulfilled when you have everything.

Learn to love being you, to pursue things yourself, and not to base your validation off of the number of 0’s in your bank account or the girlfriend you have, or the business you are runing.

All those things can be taken away from you, but short of a terrible disease, your identity cannot.

Key Points

1. The Pursuit of Money is Empty

So many of us as men tie our identity to the number of 0’s in our checking account. We think that out worth as  a man is determined by how much money we earn and the number of toys that we have without ever realizing that the sole pursuit of money is empty.

Yes, money is important and allows us to have a bigger impact on the world, but pursuing money just for the sake of having more money and bigger and better things is a pursuit that will leave you empty and full of regret for a life lived in vain.

2. Life is About What You Can Give Not What You Get 

The true joy of life is in giving back, it’s in making an impact and helping other people to become all that they can be. If you want to live a full life, a good life, and a life that has true meaning, then you must focus on what you are giving, not what you are getting.

3. You Don’t Need to Leave Your Job to Make an Impact

Many people seem to think that the only way to have true significance is to leave their job and start a nonprofit in the deep Sahara. But the truth of the matter is that you can start having a real impact by just focusing on your local community.

Start a local club for young boys who don’t have fathers and give them a strong male role model, build a park for the inner city, mentor someone who you believe has real potential.

You don’t have to be drastic to make an important difference, start small and you will be amazed where it takes you.

4.  Aim for Success and Significance

Something that many millennials are realizing is that success and significance are not either-or situations, you can have both-and. They are realizing that they can have the 7-figure business, and use that business to enjoy the finer things in life while still changing communities and individuals on a global scale.

They are realizing that they can actually make a money from making a difference, solving real problems and training up the next generation of leaders and world changers while making a profit is something that is completely doable.

Do not settle for one or the other, pursue both.

5. You Have to Operate from Passion and Strength 

If you want to make a real difference in the world, then you have to operate from passion and stregth. If you are doing something that you do not enjoy and you are no good at, you will never make a difference in your life or the life of anybody else.

You have to find thigs that make you come alive, and then find a niche where you can become one of the best. This is the only way that you will be able to make a lasting impact on the world.

“This won’t kill you, just do it”

Key Points

1. The Only Person Who Can Fix Anything is You

One of the most common themes in the Knowledge for Men interviews is personal responsibility, and this should come as little surprise.

When you are in a victim mode, there is very little that you can do to change your life. If you are constantly blaming other people for your lack of success, you will never take the action necessary to achieve the success you are after.

The only person who can fix your life is you. Take 100% responsibility for everything in your life and start making moves to get your life to the level you want to be.

2. Be Careful You Build the Right Package

All men are trying to build themselves into a “package.” They are trying to become a certain type of person, and typically the motivation for this is their desire for more beautiful women.

While there is nothing wrong with this, men need to take care to make sure they are fully educated and building the right package, one that will not only lead to success with women, but success in your health, in your business, and most importantly fulfillment with life.

3. Men Are Emotional Creatures

Something many men fail to realize in their pursuit of becoming the “Alpha” is that men are inherently emotional creatures, we are just different emotional creatures then women are.

It is learning how to harness and share these emotions where men often fail.

Expressing your emotions, your fears, your desires, and your pain is not unmanly. Vulnerability is an inherently manly thing to do as it opens you up to pain and ridicule and shows that you have true strength of character and confidence in yourself.

4. Move Towards Discomfort 

A comfortable life is the killer of all great dreams.

If you are living in comfort, you have no reason to pursue greatness. I mean think about it, why risk pain and suffering whenever what you are doing right now has earned you the big ass TV, the house, the car, and a cute girlfriend?

Why push to become more than you are?

You have to move towards discomfort, because the simple fact is, if you don’t move towards it, it will move towards you. The more open and prepared you are to face discomfort, the more at ease you will be when adversity strikes (and it will strike). If you are constantly living a life of ease, even the smallest of setbacks can make you feel as if your life is crashing in around you.

5. Open Up Your Mind

You can never be a truly complete man until you are willing to let go of your prejudices and open up your mind, until you are willing to examine news ideas, new ways of thinking and new lifestyles without judgement.

If you want to life a truly happy and fulfilled life, you need to spend time exploring new things and new ways of being, only then will you truly know the path that you want to pursue and who you want to be.

“The purpose of life is to live a life of purpose”

Key Points

1. All that is Required for Success is Drive and Insight 

If you want to be successful, you need two things, drive and insight.

Forget talent, forget high levels of academic intelligence, if you are someone who is driven to succeed, and you have the insight to see needs within the marketplace, to see the problems and offer appropriate solutions, then you can become massively wealthy.

Think about characters like Richard Branson who were told they were stupid in school and that they would amount to nothing, who had next to no understanding of industries, yet still saw a problem and were able to hire the expertise that they needed to create the businesses of their dreams.

2. Failing is Part of the Process 

There is a HUGE difference between failing and failure.

Failure is when you give up, when you resign to defeat. When you hang you head, throw in the towel and give up.

Failing is part of the path to success.

No great person has ever been without failures. Failures are what teach you, they show you what works and what doesn’t, and more often than not, when you fail at a small project, you will be able to use the knowledge you learned later to save or earn millions upon millions of dollars in a bigger business or idea.

3. You Have Everything You Need to Succeed

In the 21st century, you have everything you need to succeed.

You have the intelligence, the access to money and any other asset that you can imagine that is required for success.

If you do not know how to do something, you can simple Google it or hire someone who does.

If you don’t have access to high level investors for capital, crowd fund.

No matter what problem you are facing you have the tools to solve it and become wildly successful.

4.  Write Down 3 Problems in Your Life Everyday 

If you want to come up with your million or billion dollar idea in the next 30 days, then simply commit to writing down three problems you have in your life everyday.

In the beginning, most of the problems will be fairly obvious, but as you progress, you will be able to pick out issues that could be the next big thing, make you rich, and help millions of people in the process.

5. The Illusion of Security Robs Ambition

The only true security lies in self reliance.

If you are dependent on a job for your income, although there is nothing inherently wrong with working a 9-5 if you enjoy it and it provides the lifestyle that you want, do not be fooled into thinking that you have any security.

Government regulations, new technology, and shifts in the marketplace are all responsible for putting hundreds of companies out of business each year including dozens of Fortune 500 companies.

You have no security working for someone else, the only security is in developing, and disrupting yourself enough to create the self reliance and skill necessary to thrive in the modern world.

He co-wrote and produced the movie based on his life/book, also titled “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell.” He has also been credited with being the originator and leader of a new literary genre, “fratire,” is only the third writer (after Malcolm Gladwell and Michael Lewis) to ever have three books on the NY Times Nonfiction Best Seller List at one time, and was nominated to the Time Magazine 100 Most Influential List in 2009. He currently lives in Austin, Texas.

Favorite Success Quote

“Every day write down one example of you working your process and one example of how you are making your life about other people”

Key Points

1. Life is Not Complicated but it is Difficult

Many people like to make life seem more complicated than it really is. In reality, life is simple, but it is hard as hell and it boils down to two things:

-The relationships you have with the people that you love

-The work you do

If you can master the relationships in your life and you can do work every day that you find personally fulfilling, allows you to have freedom, and adds value to others, than you are about as successful as they come.

2. The Best Way to Make Money is to Help People

If you want to be rich, then you have to help a lot of people. Making money is all about the art of problem solving and helping others improve their lives in a way that they cannot wait to pay you.

Everyone is in pain and everyone is struggling with something in their lives, no matter how rich, good looking, or successful they are, and if you can find that thing and offer them a solution that genuinely works, you will be able to make more money than you ever imagined.

3. Achieving External Success Alone is Unfulfilling 

In the interview Tucker talked about how he had all of the external trappings of success. Millions of dollars in income, meet and sleeping with countless beautiful women, a healthy body, and a great career, but still found it ultimately unfulfilling, because he had not done the work on himself.

No matter how much you achieve in your life, if you do not work on yourself and if you do not take care of your emotions and inner world, no amount of outward success will leave you fulfilled.

4. Knowing Is Not Enough 

If everyone in the world acted on what they knew, we would live in a society where everyone was happy, healthy, wealthy, and wise.

Think about it…

Everyone knows that to be healthy you should move more and eat less. Everyone knows to be wealthy you should work hard and smart, and spend less than you make. Everyone knows to be wise you should read more and be around smarter people.

So why the hell don’t people do this?

They have an action problem, not a knowledge problem. If you want to succeed in life, you have to take the action, knowing is not half of the battle, it’s about 10% and massive effing action is the other 90%.

5. You Make Your Own Purpose 

Many people have been sold a lie that they have to go on this mystical journey to find their purpose. That if they go and meditate in a dark cave a ball of light will come down from the heavens to reveal to them what they need to do.

This is pure bullshit.

If you are struggling to find a purpose it is because you don’t find a purpose you make one!

Pick something that you enjoy and are good at that will allow you to maximize your relationships with the people you love and serve the world, and you have successfully found a purpose worth living for.

Like we said earlier, this is quite simple, but not easy.

But it is also worth it.

Favorite Success Quote

“When you accept the events that happen to you, you accept life, and when you accept life, life accepts you”

Key Points

1. Stop Worrying About the Pressures of Society 

As a man, society places tremendous pressure on you to live up to the standards it has unrealistically set.

If you don’t drive the fastest car, own the biggest house, have the biggest paycheck, lift the most weight, be the most masculine and classically manly man yet also be the most sensitive and kind-hearted lover that you can be then you have failed tremendously.

Men, just stop!

Live your life, love your life and be there for the people who really matter. You will not be on your death bed wishing you had made more money or owned a bigger house, you will wish that you had spent more time doing things you love with people you love.

Life is too darn short to be unhappy.

2. Don’t Fear Failure, Embrace It 

Mistakes are often looked at as a failure, something that you cannot recover from and something that will permanently tarnish your name.

This isn’t true.

Mistakes and failures are how you learn and how you grow into the man you need to be. They teach you valuable lessons about what is truly important and about the kind of person you should aspire to be.

Use failures, don’t regret them.

3. Life Takes Time

When you are young, you always want to move faster than necessary and try and get to the next checkpoint in life.

You want to become the man you dream of overnight. But life takes time.

And that’s the way that it should be. Enjoy the journey and don’t rush it.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Key Points

1. Learn to See Problems as Opportunities 

One of the most valuable skills that you can cultivate as a man and a leader is to control your perspective.

Look at everything in life as a spiritual experience that happens to you for a reason. This will allow you to see things that others would perceive as problems and you will be able to ask “What is the blessing?” “What is the lesson?”

This is easier said than done, but if you can shift your paradigm when the shit hits the fan, you will change your life in a radical way.

2. It is not the End

No matter what difficulty you are facing, whether a divorce, a bankruptcy, a loss of a loved one or any other tragic occurence, know that this is not the end.

It is simply the beginning of something new, you will survive and you will make it through, hold on.

3. Leadership is About Asking Questions

If you want to be a good leader, get really good at asking questions. That is what leadership boils down to is the art of being able to ask questions that bring about the best answers from those following you.

If you can become a master at asking the right question you will be a stronger leader than you ever imagined.

4. All Extrinsic Rewards come from Intrinsic Work

If you want more money, a beautiful wife, a million dollar business, a great body, or anything else, it all stems from internal work.

You have to put the work in on yourself and mold yourself into the person that you need to be before you can achieve the goals that you want to achieve.

5. Own Your Life and Change it

Quit whining, quit complaining, quit blaming others. End the victim mentality.

You are responsible for where you are in life, you and no one else. If you keep playing the blame game you will never be able to break free and live the life of your dreams. Only when you take 100% responsibility for your life are you able to take your life wherever you want it.

“Remind yourself to check in with your thoughts”

Key Points

1. Choose to Control Your Subconscious Mind

A mistake that many individuals make on their path to success is that they fail to realize the importance of the subconscious mind on their path to success. If you want to succeed in the world, you have to accept the power of your mind and learn how to harness it to help you achieve your goals and live a life of meaning purpose, and happiness.

2. Your Body and Your Spirit are Inseparably Related

The Bible says that your body is a temple, and this is true. It is the temple of your soul, and if you are not taking care of your body, your mind and your spirit cannot flourish to their fullest.

You have to cleanse your body, treat it like the vessel that it is and ensure that you are properly fueling, training, and repairing it if you want to live the life of your dreams.

All the money in the world, all the beautiful women in the world, and all the fame is useless if your body is too weak to enjoy those things.

3. Aim for Deep Impact Not Wide 

In this social media generation, where success is measured in how many Facebook likes we have, we need to rewire our thoughts around success to focus on depth not width.

What this means is that instead of reaching 100,000 people who don’t take action and who don’t change their lives based off of what you say, just try and radically change the life of 1 person. While this is not sexy, it is the path to truly making a difference and you must shift your focus if you wish to achieve true impact.

4. Live in the Now

All that we have is the now, the more you live in the past or the future, the more stressed and anxious you become as you build up these lofty goals that you have no clue how to achieve. Instead of living in the future or the past, simply live in the now, focus on this moment and all that you have to be grateful for, do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself!

If you can learn to live in the now you will achieve a success and a power in your life that you had never dreamed of before.

“Failure is not an option”.

Key Points

1. Take Responsibility for Your Own Damn Life

We live in a day and age where people live live’s that they claim no responsibility.

They sit at home in front of their television, stuffing their face with processed shit, and never getting out to meet people and socialize and then they blame the government that they’re broke, big medicine that they’re fat, the high school bully who called them a name 15 years ago for the fact that they are alone and depressed in life.

Wake up, men!

No one is responsible for you except for you. Take responsibility for your own life, because if you don’t you can never change your life.

2. Watch Out for Red Flags

While you can be great with women at bars and clubs, being a good man and being good in relationships is a whole different ball game.

One of the biggest mistakes that most novices make when it comes to the relationship “game” is that they ignore red flags because the girls are hot or they’re having a lot of fun.

Be sure to watch out for girls who are clingy, on any kind of prescription meds, angry and inconsistent in any way.

3. Stop Apologizing 

Guys, we get it…

School, the government, and your parents raised you to be a polite little gentleman who always says please and thank you. That’s great!

But you know what’s not great?

The innumerable amount of men who have become pussified shells of the confident, assertive alpha males that once roamed the earth.

And while this problem goes much deeper than anyone issues and is tied to everything from the decline of the family structure, hormonal imbalance, to feminism, one of the easiest things you can do to start getting back on track is to stop apologizing.

Really…stop.

We aren’t saying that if you run over someone’s dog you shouldn’t apologize, but men, when you are in a grocery store, and someone else runs into you because they were on their damn phone do NOT apologize for it. Don’t apologize because you are in someone’s way (guess what they are in your way too), don’t apologize unless you really need to.

4. Success with Finances and Women Are Paramount

There are truly two goals in a man’s life:

Get laid and get paid.

How those goals appear for you are quite frankly irrelevant. Whether you want to find that beautiful woman and settle down to a monogamous relationship and comfortable 9-5, or you want to be the next Casanova, traveling the world and bedding all sorts of exotic girls, is completely irrelevant.

You need to spend your early years learning how to meet and attract women, and how to make money. If you can master these two areas of your life, you will have the freedom and the peace of mind to pursue other things and go after your “passion.”

Because here’s the thing. Going after your passion is great, starting a family is great, and doing those things is a helluva lot easier with $250,000 saved in your account and a beautiful dime by your side who is loyal and loving.

 5. Your Mission is Your Priority Not Women 

Women are wonderful, we all love them and all straight men do most of the things that they do in order to attract the women that they desire. But the thing is, if you are reading this blog, odds are, you have a fire inside of you, you have a calling and a passion that is bigger than yourself, and importantly, bigger than any woman.

Men, you can never make a woman your whole priority in life, a priority, absolutely. The priority, no.

If you are in a long term relationship or marriage, then obviously it is your responsibility to be there for her, to love, her and provide for her, but your mission in life has to come first and she needs to understand that this is the case, and it doesn’t mean that you don’t love her, it simply means that you have a calling inside of you that cannot be limited to one single relationship.

So go after your mission men, and don’t hold back.

Favorite Success Quote

“Enjoy the hell out of being you”

Key Points

1. Love Being You 

The first step that is essential to becoming a powerful man who can authentically relate with and attract the women he desires is simply to love being you.

Love who you are!

Love your weirdness, your quirky traits, your dreams and goals, your hobbies, your flaws, and your strengths.

Many people suggest that loving yourself often causes people to steer away from personal development, but the opposite is actually true. If you genuinely love yourself and love who you are, what is the more loving thing to do?

To allow yourself to live a mediocre life held back by fear and doubt?

Or to break free and step into the life that you know you can achieve?

2. You Have to Live by Your Values to Truly Attract Women 

One of the reasons that many shy guys fail with women whenever attempting “pick up” is that the techniques and tactics taught in the pickup community, even among those who encourage you to be authentic and genuinely relate, are often out of line with the values that you may hold being an introverted male.

If you value genuine conversation and connection and are then told that you have to go to loud bars and clubs start dry humping on the dance floor to attract girls, you will feel disingenuous and it will come across in your interactions.

3. Break the Touch Barrier Quickly

One of the ways that many introverts fail with women is that they are quickly “friend zoned” because they have a difficult time breaking the touch barrier. A woman will never see you in a sexual light if you are not able to comfortable touch her in a respectful way (and quickly)

This does not mean you have to be groping and grab assing, it simply means that being able to initiate a playful touch on the arm or shoulder, or placing your hand on her knee to emphasize a segment of a story you are telling, will go a long way in having her see you as a potential boyfriend and a not a potential friend to cry to when her boyfriend turns out to be an asshole.

4. Your Inner World will be Reflected In Your Approaches

Women have a sixth sense when it comes to how you are showing up in the world. If you are inwardly feeling unconfident, very unsure of yourself, and unworthy of the girl you are trying to spark attraction with. it will come across and she will be able to tell almost immediately.

You have to first develop the inner confidence and put yourself in situations where you can be yourself (for example if you love music, go join a music meet up instead of trying to force going out to night clubs and bars), and then you will be able to meet and attract women easily and naturally.

We live in a world caught between two extremes. In one breath, we eschew and vilify masculinity and traditionally “manly” virtues, labeling them as “toxic” and detrimental to society. Yet in another, we revel in them. Subconsciously pining for a resurgence in traditional masculinity.

We are enamored with the classically masculine archetypes that proliferate our favorite movies, books, and TV shows (think Jon Snow, Don Draper, Hank Moody, and Captain America).

The blood in our veins rips at the sight of a vicious knockout in the UFC and, as we watch the victor leap to the top of the cage with his arms held high in the air, we can’t help but imagine ourselves standing in his place…the taste of blood on our lips, the deafening roar of the crowd filling our ears, and the inner confidence of knowing that we are capable of handling ourselves in conflict.

Yet all of our imagining does little to change the way we feel and show up in life.

Despite our desire to “be the man”, to feel strong, accomplished, and powerful…our desires are left unmet. We are not the hero of our lives so we allay our growing sense of emasculation by watching other hero’s through a steady stream of action movies, video games, and extreme sports. 

The reason is simple…

Men today are lost. In the famous words of Bob Dylan, “The times, they are a-changing.” And modern men have failed to evolve with the changing times.

As feminism has given rise to unprecedented equality men are faced with a growing and inescapable sense of obsolescence.

Men aren’t needed in the way that we once were and, our seeming lack of utility has left men wondering, “What the hell am I supposed to do now?” We no longer have clear roles in society and men all over the world want to know how to be more masculine and even if it’s okay.

And today, I'm going to give you the answers you've been looking for.

“Never get too busy making a living that you forget to make a life”~Dolly Parton

Key Points

1. Accountability is Key

On your path to becoming the best man that you can be, there are a couple of key ingredients that, if you are lacking, will cause you to fail miserably.

One of those keys is accountability.

You have to have strong men in your life who are willing to speak truth and push you to become your best self. Men who are willing to call you out on your weaknesses and affirm your strengths. Without a strong support system you will fail. It is essential to your success as a man, in business, marriage, and personal growth that you develop this accountability and stick to it.

2. Men Are Overly Courageous in Business and Fearful in Family

A huge problem with men today is that they are courageous in business and timid in their family lives.

They draw all of this satisfaction from succeeding on the front of business, making millions and achieving their dreams, that they forget to be good fathers, husbands, and sons.

If you want to live up to your full potential as a man, you have to have a balance between both. You have to succeed in business so that you can provide for your family, but you also have to be willing to sacrifice a bigger paycheck to be the man that your family needs.

3. Build Generosity into Your Life

One of the cornerstones of being a good man is being generous. If you want to live a life of purpose and fulfillment, build generosity into your life, don’t sprinkle it in as an afterthought.

Give your time, money, and resources to charities that you believe in, be willing to listen to the homeless guy on the street, sit and have a conversation with someone in need. Be generous in all areas of your life and it will come back to you, but more importantly, at the end of the day when you meet your maker, you will have a clean conscience and a full heart.

Favorite Success Quote

“Don’t wait for the helicopters to rescue you”

Key Points

1. You Have to Rescue Yourself 

In life, no one is coming to save you, there are no helicopters on the way, you have to rescue yourself.

In business, there is no one coming with that promotion you aren’t willing to work and ask for, in relationships, there are no beautiful women waiting in line to marry you while you play video games and live a mundane life, there is no magic pill to make you the best version of yourself, you have to choose to be the best, and fight for it every day.

You have to rescue yourself.

2. Know there is Hope

No matter how bleak things look right now, know that there is hope, there is always something better waiting for you if you are willing to have patience and put in the work. No matter how hard it is, no matter how much you want to give up, stay strong and have hope.

3. Take it One Step at a Time

If you want to succeed at anything, just take it one step at a time. Don’t think about the massive journey ahead of you, just think about the natural next step, think about the one thing that you need to do today.

If you can have laser focus on the next thing you need to accomplish your success in life and business will skyrocket.

4. Don’t Wait for the Plane to Crash 

Life is beautiful and we have so much to be grateful for. Don’t wait for your plane to crash to realize that. Spend time every day in thanks, thinking about the people, things, and experiences you love.

Just be grateful and allow the world to spin in its own way without worrying about it.

“Persistence”

Key Points

1. Just Persist

If you are struggling in life be it in your finances, relationships, or sense of meaning in life, just persist. Nothing good ever comes from people who can give up.

You have to be willing to take the hits and keep on moving, to put in the work whenever everyone else parties, to put your nose to the grindstone while others sleep. If you can persist and keep going, success will come, it may take years, but if you put in the work and push through the hard times, you will succeed in the end.

2. Don’t Ask How, Just Why

If you have to ask “how” odds are that you don’t really want to do something. If you came across a wild bear and had to get away, you wouldn’t ask how to get out of the way, you would just do it! And the same is true of success.

If you really want to do something and have a strong why, then you will be able to figure out the how no matter what.

3. You Have Nothing But Your Word

We have all heard that a man has nothing but his word. And as cliche as it may sound, this is true.

You have nothing but your word. If you cannot be trusted, if you have no integrity with others and yourself, then what do you really have to offer the world?

Nothing.

You have to be a man of your word, take your word and your integrity more seriously than you take your job, your relationships, your passions or anything because your word is the only measure of a man.

Reject complacency like it’s a poison, chase your vision like its your last breath, this is your path to achieving greatness”

Key Points

1. Reject Complacency and Live in Fear

If you are not growing then you are dying. If you are a driven man who wants to achieve great things in your life and you take the action necessary to achieve those things, then odds are, you will come to a point in your life where you are comfortable. You will have made your millions, become successful with women, possibly having the dream wife, the big house, and the passive income business. But this is when life becomes most dangerous.

Life is unpredictable and volatile. Once you achieve success you are at your most vulnerable because this is when you feel that you have permission to stop growing and pushing yourself. This is something that you must root out of your life like a cancer. You have to constantly grow, reject complacency, and live in fear. Live in fear because you are doing things that you don’t know you will be able to achieve, things that are making you better and making you stronger.

2. Success Builds Trust 

If you want people to trust you, show them results. If you have a proven track record behind your name, then people will naturally support you when you start to take on more and more challenging tasks and activities. How can you expect your family to trust you in starting and growing a new business when you haven’t even achieved success in your current job? How can you expect business partners and investors to trust you when you have no proof of your abilities.

Do what it takes to become successful and later, whenever you are making bigger and bigger leaps, you will already have the trust of the important people in your life.

3. Prioritize Your Life

The age old excuse that you don’t have time for something is just a big lie you keep telling yourself. You have time for whatever you prioritize, and if you do not prioritize business, health or relationships, then they will suffer, there’s no way around it.

If you want to achieve greatness then you have to prioritize it.

Key Points

1. Get Off Social Media and CONNECT

People have lost their ability to connect. We spend our days on social media, constantly swiping and liking our lives away while the real juice of life passes us by.

If you want to live a life that is full, full of love, passion, and joy, you have to put down the phone and learn to connect with people, get excited about who you will meet and what you will learn each day and turn your damn phone off!

No man will ever go to his grave regretting that he didn’t have enough facebook followers, but many men die void of true love and connection because they were never willing to put down their devices and connect.

2. You Are Good Enough 

Society, our family, and our friends have sold us a lie that we are not good enough. We have been taught that because we are not like someone else that we are somehow inferior and less worthy of love and success than others.

This is bullshit.

You are who you are for a reason, embrace it! If you are a nerd, be a nerd, a gym rat, then be a gym rat, if you are a hopeless romantic, then fucking embrace it and be who you are!

Don’t let anyone or anything tell you that you are not good enough.

3. Give Love Freely

All that matters in life is our ability to love. If you want to be happy and fulfilled, then give love freely. Love other people, love the world you live in, love your family, your friends, and don’t expect anything in return.

As soon as you do this, the universe will open up doors and your life will be a roller coaster ride of joy, love, and connection.

4. Be Totally Present 

Stop worrying about tomorrow. Quit spending your precious time focused on things that don’t matter. Unplug and learn to love, to be totally present and there with everyone you meet.

Life is too short to live in the future. Give love and presence and your life will be more joyful and amazing than you can imagine.

Key Points

1. Learn to Be With Yourself

Part of becoming the man that you were born to be is to discover who you are and to learn to be ok with your shadow, unafraid and bold in accepting who you are.

To achieve this level of self knowledge and acceptance, you have to be willing to spend time in solitude truly delving into yourself and allowing yourself the space to grow.

Whether this is through meditation, time in nature or journaling doesn’t matter. What matters is that you make time for yourself to be alone with yourself and truly come to know and accept who you are.

2. You Have to Have a Rite of Passage to Become the Best Man You Can Be

To truly thrive as a man, you must, even according to your own biology, go through a rite of passage that challenges you and leaves you a better man than before.

Whether this is a retreat, solo trip around the world, starting a business, or competing in a boxing match, you need to have something that marks your transition into manhood and a new life, no matter how old or experienced you are.

3. Create a Life Map

A powerful exercise to help you unlock your potential and become the man you need to be is to create a life map. Include your overarching purpose for the next 6 years, milestones along the way to help keep you motivated and on track, a daily one thing to focus on, and a list of daily habits to help you become the man you were born to be.

No matter whether your purpose is to become the biggest name in personal growth, a pro musician, or simply to be the best damn father you can, breaking everything down in this way will help you to organize your life and goals in a simple way that you can easily follow and use to achieve your purpose.

Key Points

1. Become an Inside Out Person

So often, we get tied up in achieving success, in getting the girl, getting the six pack, and making the million dollars, that we tie all of our value and recieve all of our validation from the outside in.

This is completely backwards. If you want to be a happy fulfilled person who lives their lives with a sense of joy and completion, you have to first become a person who works from the inside out. You work on giving yourself to the world just as you are, because you know that you have everything inside of you that you need to feel complete and be loved.

You don’t need any external validation for happiness, you simply need to be who you are, and more importantly love who you are.

2. Get Over Your Insecurities

What many people do not realize is that whenever they wait to act until they are ready because they are insecure, it’s not themselves that they are robbing, they are robbing the world of their gifts as well.

Every second that you spend wallowing in insecurity is a second that is spent selfishly depriving the world of your gifts and talents, get over yourself and get over your insecurities, and just act!

3. Another Person Can Never Be Your Purpose

As men, we often times get tied up in women who we consider to be projects. We get all of our validation from fixing and saving them without realizing that what is really happening is that their brokenness is what we are using to try and save ourselves.

A relationship should be two whole people, holding hands and looking in the same direction. Two people who love themselves and love each other who have their own individual paths and purposes which are aligned.

Never allow someone else to become your purpose, because as soon as you do, you doom the relationship to failure.
