I would argue that having an alpha male in a group, be it a nation or a group of peers, is actually a natural and beneficial thing to us human beings. Having one strong figure who is feared as much as he is beloved, who is well-educated, wise , strong and brave, who can rally his people behind him in times of crises, and protect their freedom and well being in times of peace is a thing that comes naturally to us humans. All nations strive for a great leader, all people have the cult of the great ruler, no matter your political opinion we all have in our mind the one person who best represents our interests, and whose rule we would gladly accept.
When a man spends time with himself, he comes to know and appreciate himself more. When meeting a new acquaintance, we often undervalue them because we know so little about them, once we sit one-to-one with that person, and we get to know them a little better, their true value and virtue is revealed to us, and they might even become so dear to us that we may call them friends, thus this also happens to ourselves, the less time we spend alone with our own self and our own thoughts, the less we value ourselves, and by spending time alone we get to know ourselves better and to see and judge our own virtues and sins to our own standards, thus we become more dear to ourselves and our own inner-self becomes our friend.
Walking is the most important activity we as men can introduce into our lives in order to become the best men we can be. There is no simpler way to improve the state of your mind, or the quality of your life than taking a nice long walk outside.
It's the primary trait of an alpha male to take what he wants without asking, it's the only way one can get the things one desires, be it status, wealth or respect, nobody is going to give it to you if you don't take it yourself, if you don't demand it, and these 'men' would rather die hungry then fight for a piece of bread. I used to be one of them, I too was born and grew up during the time of soft men, the peaceful and comfortable time in which men don't learn the traits needed to survive in this world. But though hard work on improving myself, both mentally and physically, by working to overcome my fears and challenge my enemies, I learned to embrace conflict, and by doing so grow both as a man and as a person. The answer to the mediocrity that is killing this society is to always strive for greatness and virtue, no matter the amount of conflict you as a man need to engage in, for you were created to be the predator of attrition, the one who takes the blows and deals them back twice as hard.
There is a trait that every man needs to master, in order to call himself a man. A trait so important that not having it can cause low self-esteem, doubt, lack of confidence, or even the lack of that feeling of being a man which men get when we are in our full masculine potential. This trait, or rather a skill which can, though through great difficulty, be learned, is how to control your frame. Frame control is one of the first thing I would urge young man to learn as they begin their life journey into masculinity and adulthood. It's such a basic skill relating to the masculine virtues and being the best man you can be, that many other important skills and traits would be almost impossible to master without previously mastering this skill. Not being able to control one's frame can also be damaging to a man's mindset, since being thrown out of your frame can cause significant negative effects on your sense of confidence.
Mindfulness is a useful practice to any modern man striving to become the best man he can be. The stresses of daily life can bring even the strongest of us down, that is why we must harbor this ancient art as it is the only way one can stay strong and unrelenting in the world which seeks nothing but to destroy him.
Being productive is very important in order to succeed in the modern times. You're either a highly productive, driven and over-competent alpha male, or you are shit that doesn't fulfill his evolutionary role of becoming the best alpha man he can be. But in order to be productive and highly efficient, you need to know when to be productive, and when to take your time to collect your thoughts, rest and make plans, it you will suffer terrible burnout, because being an alpha male is very hard and being productive will drain your energy fast.
All in all, going to any extreme of having or not having isn't going to bring you any happiness or fulfillment in life, but I sure think every man who is trying to become the best alpha man he can be needs to adopt at least the key aspects of the minimalist mindset, clutter in your life transforms to clutter in your mind which blocks you from growing and reaching your full potential as a man. Try the minimalist experiment for at least three days, and see how this lifestyle works for you, it might open your mind for new perspectives, or at least create a better and clearer living space in your day-to-day life.
It's a natural impulse for a man to worry about his circumstances, how can we not? After all mother nature did evolve us to be the providers, and the protectors of the family unit. We need to be strong, we need to be mentally stable, we need to provide what is expected of us, it's … Continue reading Worry About Things You Can Control
Pipe smoking definitely isn't for everyone, but most men would enjoy a pipe at least once in a while to helped them fight stress, get rid of anxiety and solve problem in their life in a way they never before knew possible. It is, as I've said, a thinking man's hobby, a creative man's hobby, and finally, a manly man's hobby, since it helps men develop the capacity for mindfulness, presence in every moment, calmness and stability that many modern man lack in this time of war against the masculine virtue.
