How To Become A Real Man – 7 Commandments To Live By

“Real Men Are Made, Not Born” – Anon

Face it — the current generation of men is a far cry from the generations of men in the past.  Most of us come from broken families where the father was absent to teach us the ropes.  We learned to pedestal women, complain about petty things, and cry our hearts out under the slightest duress.

What we never did learn was how to be a real man.  Fortunately it’s never too late to get reacquainted with your long forgotten masculine side.

Here’re 7 commandments of manhood to get you started.

  1. Cook. You have to eat.  So, instead of consuming those microwave dinners, learn a thing or two about making few simple meals.   Cooking opens a plethora of new options like luring that hot brunette back to your cave for a taste of your risotto and more.
  2. Have A Plan.  As the wisdom goes: if you don’t have a plan, you’re probably following someone else’s.  Mute the TV, figure out what you want out of life, and then start building the foundation brick by brick.
  3. Never Complain. Complaining is a symptom of the larger problem: your inability to make life work for you instead of the other way around.  My mom complaints, and so does my 10 year old niece.  You have no excuse.
  4. Live On Your Own Terms.  It’s your life and you will die one day, so why spend it living it on someone else’s terms?
  5. Seduce. Unless you’re gay, you have no excuse not to pursue those women you find attractive.  After all, there’s not much else men have been put on this planet to do.
  6. Control Your Emotions. Use your powerful logical brain for important decisions and keep your emotions in check.
  7. Cherish Loyalty and Reliability. Surround yourself with loyal men and reciprocate with your own undivided and uncompromised loyalty.

Your road to reclaiming your manhood won’t be easy and won’t be instant.  There will be times when you’ll question everything you thought your knew about yourself.  Nevertheless it’s a road that must be ventured.  Not only do you owe it to yourself, but to all generations of men — those that came before you and those that will come after you.

So, no more games, gimmicks or procrastinations.  It’s your journey and it begins right now.

Do you have problems attracting women? Are you tired of playing silly games with women who never show up? Do you want to improve as a man without all the stupid gimmics, tips and tricks?

If so, you'll like my new book: The Sovereign Man: Become A Man of High Value, Confidence and Action.

    What about expanding on the part about living on your own terms. I have a normal day job but I also want to travel the world and seduce foreign women, how do I do that?

      Make a plan to go overseas. That’s what I am doing. Learning to be a chef, cause there is always work for a cook. Save up enough money to go overseas. Connect with people who know the ins and outs of travelling and that country.

        Going abroad is probably one of the wisest decisions you can make. And being a chef – well everyone is gotta eat.

      You can also strive to be location semi-independent, where you live in a foreign country, but have that steady job to keep the cash rolling in. This is what I’m trying to do now, but maybe next year, I’ll be in a better position to pursue it.

        Semi-independent is also a good strategy for players to get exposed to sweet foreign pussy. I have a couple of friends that are doing this now.

    Good list, I would also add one: “A real man is a risk taker” Take small calculated risks, and them often. Very good way to test yourself, so you don’t sit on the sidelines wondering what to do.

    • Maverick November 7, 2012 at 4:53 pm #

      Good one. Risk taking is inherent to men, and should be part of every men’s outlook on life.

    Mav! Sounds like you are about to hit a big journey again!

    • Maverick November 7, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

      The journey continues…

    great stuff. never complain, be loyal to friends, excellent.

    I can add two other things:

    1. With the Plan, strive to understand the world around you apart from what the media tells you. When I was growing up, TV was limited and the Net didn’t exist. Not the case anymore, though you have to be discerning in what you read or watch, and realize that you can easily suffer from information overload because of the glut of information out there. It’s worse now than it was ten years ago, but you can make it work for you if you know how to do it. Everyone is different.

    2. Strive to be educated (i.e., in the old liberal arts sense and not “I have a bachelor’s in HR or marketing”) and learn how to speak confidently and professionally with others. Avoid hesitation phrases like “like” and “um” and don’t do Twitter-speak. Learn how to craft complete sentences and learn how to tell a story. Sadly, this is being lost more and more on the younger chicks because of technology, and their attention spans are shortening. But, be that as it may, if you can find comfort and wisdom reading literature and philosophy, for example, rather than chasing pussy all the time, it will reap rich rewards over time.

    The story is that Karl Marx, once a year, read the entire works of Shakespeare in the original Elizabethan English because he wanted to. And, this was while he was living in abject poverty in England, struggling to provide for his family while writing. He realized the importance of the life of the mind.

      DC Phil,
      These are excellent tips as well. I’m about to start doing book reviews again, so it’s good timing.

    Do not allow anger to control your feelings. Do something reasonable that can change your life for good and become who you are.
