Why men are failing at being Men?

Why men are failing at being Men?
(AKA: Men are dying)
The core of a Man’s heart is to be Wild & Free (undomesticated).
-hunt, fish, climb, fight, build, destroy and simply to Man Shit.
-Like the days of old.
But Man today has lost his way.
Cubicles and sterilized, organic, stale living comes with a price.
The world is losing real Men at an insane rate….day by day
The ‘walking Dead’ men I see are dying inside because they are not doing what we as Men are designed to do.
Like I said, Men are designed to do Man Shit like our forefathers.
Men are built so seek Adventure: hunt, fish, camp, build, create, fight, etc
==> Today’s man: Video games
To pursue and romance the love of their life.
==> Today’s Man: Porn
To have a sense of purpose and mission in their lives and to be useful in accomplishing worthy pursuits and ends.
==> Today’s man: mundane, routine jobs, lost behind a laptop and living with their parents.
I know it’s not always ‘practical’ to follow your heart, yet it is critical.
Now more than ever. Men are dying all around us….just look around.
Overweight, out of shape, drifting thru life like worthless zombies…..getting divorced (if they even get married or pursue a relationship), sedating every day with pills, alcohol or dope….Sedating and numbing themselves each and every day, lost in social media and a worthless life, instead of stepping into the arena.
I get it.
The arena can be scary and painful, but this my friends, is where Men truly are alive.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” -Teddy Roosevelt
