A man without a mission is not a man.
Too often, from too many men, I get emails talking about how down they are about life.
Whether it’s girls, shitty career prospects post college, or hating the 9-5 grind–I hear it all.
Want an example?
A fellow man sent me this recently:
It seems like the dating scene is rapidly becoming Americanized throughout the world: women are getting fatter and uglier, while men are getting “hotter” and more ripped. The “whalization” of women and the “hunkization” of men. I see this first hand in Prague. When I first came to Prague in October 2015, almost all Czech young women are of normal weight. It was hard to see an overweight Czech woman under 40. As of now, in June 2016, I see lots of young Czech fatties everywhere I go, in malls, in stores, in residential neighborhoods, etc… In the suburbs and small town, it seems even worse, as it looks like they are overrun by landwhales. Prague fell very hard very fast, in just several months. Most Czech men are now dating down. The dating landscape of Czech Republic now looks no different than America.
What the hell is going on with the world? Men are now slaving away at the gym and risking their health doing steroids just to get a chance to get laid with a non-fattie. But women can’t even do something as basic as keep their normal. It looks like the world is closing in men!
I apologize that I sound so angry, but the reality looks beyond dystopian and it makes me mad.
Side note: I’m actually in the Czech Republic right now, and I can definitely say that he’s wrong about Prague.
However, that does not change the lesson we can take from this email–which I should note, was far longer in length than what I’ve shared today.
Men are down about the world today. And rightfully-fucking-so. How could you not be?
Your average man is left picking up scraps when it comes to women–except that those scraps resemble three hundred pound wildebeests. Not scraps at all.
Working is no longer fulfilling because of the feminized workplace (and I have to admit, being my own boss and not having to adhere to any PC-feminist bullshit is the best).
Raising a family?
Step right up to the Russian Roulette table, my friends!
When in time could any average man learn to become great with women and run a true harem?
When in time could any average man make money from anywhere in the world and travel as he wished?
When in time could any average man have access to the wealth of information we have today?
THE ANSWER IS NEVER!
Never in the history of mankind have us men had the deck so stacked against us but at the same time been able to prosper so much from it.
Which is why it’s the best time in history to be a man.
If, and only if–you’re willing to do the work.
If you’re not, this article is not for you. Go home and cry some more.
Don’t get me wrong, it IS a lot of work. You will bleed. However, the freedom and skills acquired from true hard work will last a lifetime. And you will never stop prospering.
So if you’re feeling down in the dumps. Like you have nowhere to go. That life is just one big vicious cycle.
Then follow this advice.
Do you have any idea how much a simple mindset shift can help you improve your mood and happiness?
Look at that small snip of the email I showed above. Does that man sound happy to you? Or does he sound like someone who is deeply negative towards the world?
It should be obvious.
We’ve exchanged some emails and he’s looking up now, because he changed how he viewed the world.
I’m shamelessly stealing this line from my friend Ivan Throne, which he started using on Troublesome Radio.
Just get up and WALK.
Design one website as a side project to escape the grind. Even if it’s just one page.
Approach one girl just to see what happens.
Go to the gym one time and get a sweat on.
The point is, put your damn feet in motion.
Listen to Ivan’s words:
I left my corporate job on February 23rd, just five months ago.
Do you think I regret it for one second?
This video sheds some light onto why:
Live your life.
Be a troublemaker.
