15.) Lose weight to drop the FAT off your body.
If you’re an overweight slob, you’re not going to feel good about yourself, and your testosterone will be lower to boot. Like I said in the 1st article: part of being a man is feeling good about yourself. It’s hard to look in the mirror and hate what you see, and be a self-respecting man at the same time.
So if you’ve some extra pounds on you, you need to take action and do something about it. Change may not come overnight, but if you really keep your head down and focus, you can materialize the image you have in your head. You cannot think this into happening either. You have to physically will it into being.
It all starts with a mental fixation on that image (of an in-shape you), until its a reality. Check out my recent article on weight loss.
16.) Know how to RUTHLESSLY prioritize your day (& your life).
You’ll be one disorganized mess of a man, without having clear-cut priorities from one day to the next. Every day counts, and every day is important (even Sundays). That said, you have to be very careful about how you structure your day. If there is one thing I’ve learned since I turned 32, it’s that prioritization matters.
It matters very very VERY much. If you’re 25, you may not yet realize the vast extent to which prioritizing your life actually matters.
Prioritization matters, even more than being organized does. It matters on a larger scale, and a smaller one, down to each day, each hour, and each minute.
17.) Have SELF-RESPECT, & have the body language to show for it.
If you have bad body language, it’s most likely a reflection of how you feel about yourself internally. What that means is that you probably lack self-respect. So the issue is more complicated than simply correcting your body language.
What you really need to be asking yourself, is how much self-respect you have. A lack of self-respect, will sabotage you in each one of these 22 points I’m pointing out in these articles.
To be a fully realized man, you NEED to posses a healthy level of self-respect.
18.) Understand that cell phone radiation leads to decreased sperm count & low TEST levels.
Here this now: there is such a thing as EMR, which is Electro-Magnetic Radiation. Some people call this RF (Radio-Frequency) poisoning. To make this simple, let me ask you a question: do you think it’s good for you, or bad for you, to constantly have a cell phone on you all day, all night, every day and every night, non-stop?
What kind of effect do you think this will have on people 20 years from now? When you actually stop to think about it, it’s not hard to come to the natural conclusion that it’s probably not good for your brain to constantly be exposed to a cell phone. The same can be said for all electronic devices. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to come to this common sense conclusion: it’s much more likely to be bad for you, than it is to be good for you.
This cell phone radiation also leads to decreased Testosterone levels and sperm count. This is just one of the many contributing factors to lower the T levels in men these days.
Keep your cell phone in your jacket pocket, not down in your jeans right next to your nuts. If you don’t have a jacket, then at least keep it in your back (ass) jeans pocket.
19.) Look into starting TRT in your mid-late 30’s (or at the very least use a TESTOSTERONE booster).
Do not be afraid of Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Get your blood-work done, see where you are, and when the time is right: start replacing your testosterone. It’s time to act like a man. Men take action and do something about their lowered testosterone levels.
Why would you not want to optimize your life? Hell forget about optimization, why would you want to live your life on a sub-par level? This is exactly what you are doing when you ignore your T-levels and blood work: you’re barley existing. You’re meekly surviving, instead of thriving, like some disgusting cockroach.
Men are not afraid of a needle, only a complete, total and utter pussy is afraid of a needle. Some of you younger guys however, may not quite be at the point where TRT is necessary (those of you under the age of 30 (in the year 2018 at least)).
So for you guys I recommend Red-PCT 2.0.
For those of you who are interested in gear (beyond just testosterone), and how to take it safely and correctly, then I highly encourage you to read this book right here.
20.) Take FREEZING COLD showers.
There are numerous benefits to taking cold showers. Here are a few of them:
- Reduction of stress (lowering of cortisol, which is bad for testosterone)
- Helps alleviate depression
- Aids in weight loss
- Strengthens your immune system
- Increases testosterone
- Increase in energy and well-being
- Increase in focus and motivation
This is not even all of them, just the main ones in my opinion. Taking a cold shower is hard, and it will test your will. A man often needs to have his will tested, it’s essential to happiness, healthy self-esteem, and self-confidence.
21.) Limit masturbation, or eliminate it entirely.
Its no secret in the men’s self-improvement community that there are a lot of guy’s in favor of the no fap lifestyle. There is some confusion around this, which I’ll get to in minute, but first I wanted to give you a summary of the immense benefits you can expect to receive from deciding to quit masturbation.
You’ll even start to notice these effects at or before the 30 day mark:
- Better eye vision (loss of floaters)
- Extreme sense of calmness and well-being
- Improved memory
- Stronger immune system
- Huge reduction in anxiety
- Improved intuitive understanding of everything
- Huge improvement in confidence
- Lack of irritation or anger (but perhaps a little increase in aggression, due to higher testosterone)
- Increase in testosterone
- Deeper voice
- Improved posture
- Better sleep
- Courage and elimination of fear
The confusion arises when men equate no masturbation, with no sex. Masturbation is not the same thing as sex, it’s not even close. When you have sex with a woman, you need to carry out the act like normal, however when you are not with a woman, you do not ejaculate until you are with one again. Ejaculation is what drains you of your energy.
Now, some men are much more affected by an ejaculation release than others are. In other words: I truly believe that it drains certain men of their energy, more than it does other men.
This is something I have observed from hearing other men talk about this subject.
Despite this, ALL men, to one degree or another, can benefit from a reduction of ejaculation.
It’s important to point out that I’m talking about two acts here:
–Elimination of your masturbation habit, which is immensely beneficial for its own reasons, namely in the areas of self-respect, self-esteem, and self-control, and:
–A reduction in the number of times per week that you ejaculate, which also has its own benefits, namely in the areas of energy conservation, and motivation.
So it’s not ALL masturbation, and it’s not ALL ejaculation, it’s both of them, for their own reasons.
22.) Maintain calmness, never let people or day-to-day life get you too upset.
This will be much easier to do once you drop the masturbation addiction. Beyond that however, think about all the most successful men you have ever known in your life. Do they have an anxious, or otherwise nervous and panicked demeanor?
No, of course they don’t. Successful men have a calm, collected, assured, and confident one.
They’re not too worried about what’s going on in their lives, or what’s happening around them. They know, internally, that things will always work themselves out. These men are not passive observers of life, they most definitely play their part, but they ARE confident enough in themselves to know they’ll do what needs to be done, when the time comes.
They trust themselves enough to know they’ll make the right call, when the time comes to make that call. There is no need to worry about anything beforehand, they’ll cross the bridge when they come to it.
The strongest, and most self-assured men I know, do not let other people get to them. As a result, they know there is no point in trying to change another person’s opinion. Other people will only see the truth or the light when they are ready to see it. They know there is very little they can do to expedite that process for another person. That said, these men know intuitively that arguing is an inefficient use of their time.
There is no such thing as toxic masculinity. That is a lie you were sold by the Pink KKK (feminists). Be a man, and be damn proud of it. The truth is, pride is great, but it’s not even about pride anymore, it’s about survival at this point.
Testosterone rates are plummeting, and you need to be proactive about preserving and optimizing yours.
