In today’s world, men don’t want to put in the work needed to be successful. Many men are drawn to the distractions of video games, social media, and “hot” girls that do not add value to their lives. In this article, we outline what makes many men so weak and how they can increase their value.
We live in a world that makes comfort easy. The biggest problem for men nowadays is not being challenged. Plain and simple. Followed by the escapism of our own reality in the form of modern distractions through video games, television, social media, porn, and even drug addiction which hinders so many men from achieving their full potential. Many men today are complainers rather than go-getters. And in a world driven by sheer patriarchal power, these men may find themselves in a cycle of doom and gloom.
These days, only a few men end up being successful. Why, because they put in the hard work. You need to understand that there is no shortcut to success. Most men do not; they would rather blame others for their bad situations rather than work to improve. Men whine too much these days. They fall into society’s vices; into things designed to crush their manhood.
This is never the right way to go!
Men need to put in the work. Simple. Men need to level up all the time, and the only way to do this is to work consistently. Want to look better, hit the gym. Want to be a successful entrepreneur, work the night shifts. There is no secret to success. You may watch a hundred self-help videos; read a thousand books on entrepreneurship but if you don’t put in those extra hours of work, nothing happens.
Remember, knowledge is not as powerful as applied knowledge.
Drop the blame game; no one is responsible for your success or failure. If you work a little harder than everyone else, you will be successful than 99% of men. You have to be honest with yourself; seek improvement (there is so much content out there); work on your faults, and LEVEL UP!
The Mistake that Ruins the Lives of 99% of Men
A lot of men go about chasing women who offer nothing that complements their values. They waste too much time tainting their personal image for toxic women who eventually pull them down. So many men are putting up with miserable relationships because they do not look beyond physical appearances. They find a beautiful woman and give her the whole world, without expecting anything in return.
We’ve all been in these relationships. Too many women are infatuated with society’s portrayal of their physical image and because of this; they feel entitled to a man’s time, energy and resources. We often find ourselves intertwined with such toxic women at some point in our lives. Therefore it is important to analyze our relationships with women and ask, “Why should I stay?”
Men need to start setting standards. Yes, society pressures us into loving women for their appearances, but long-lasting relationships aren’t founded on beauty; they last because of personality. So if a woman has a bad attitude, a poor personality, or is bad with finances, then you do not need her in your life.
Infatuation is not love. You need to remove the veil and see beyond the beauty of women. If you continue to attach yourself to women with bad attitudes and mindsets, they will impede your personal and financial development. Most, not all, women are entitled; if given the chance, they will take and take until you can offer nothing more.
Identifying Toxic Women
You need an emotionally secure woman. If a woman is super jealous about everything you do, then she is not good for you. When she is bad with money, she will definitely be bad with yours. If she has a rocky relationship with her parents, why should she respect you? When she avoids discussions about your future together and stuff like that, she may never stay committed to you.
When a man has done the emotional and spiritual work, he sets a barrier between him and toxic women. If you truly develop yourself personally, you become so healthy that it becomes impossible for unhealthy women to come into your life. And that’s where many men fail; they do not love themselves enough to be aware of their values. They make it easy for women to treat them like crap.
You can do the right thing. Be true to yourself; set your standards high and do not tolerate excesses from toxic women. You are the prize.
Ways Men Can Increase Their Value
The main thing is to always ‘level up’. Have a purpose. In a few months from now, you should work to be at a higher place. Staying in the same position, as a man, breeds disrespect. But the moment you chase your goals and avoid distractions, you become the ‘alpha male’.
Here are 5 ways you can increase your manly values today:
Remove that Toxic Woman
Why put up with women that hold you back, emotionally? What do you stand to gain from dating a pretty woman that constantly puts you down? There is no reason to keep a toxic woman in your life. If you can, remove her from all social media platforms. Your energy should be protected. Rather than tolerating a toxic woman who is just a liability, you should spend more time working hard towards your goals.
Porn is poison. It has nothing valuable to offer, except emotional trauma and sexual discontent. Put a porn blocker; start NoFap—do whatever it takes to stay away from those gross, toxic visual images. Porn is visual cocaine; it’s a distraction no man needs.
Invest Your Money
Challenge yourself; put your money where your mouth is. Create a tangible goal and work towards it. Set deadlines; take the risk. Invest your time and money in projects you truly care about and you will level up in due time.
Find a Suitable Teammate
You cannot do it alone. You need a teammate; a person that has the same mindset as you. Things are bound to go wrong along your journey of personal development. However, by having a partner who shares your values and is willing to support you, you will have no excuses to back out and will always chase your goals relentlessly.
Remove all Distractions
You, and only you, know what is stopping you from your vision. Look deep down within yourself and you will find things that clutter your mind; things that distract you from achieving your goals. Protect your mental energy by removing all distractions. Be laser-focused, be consistent and stay away from time-wasters.
