Beware the Ides of March:
The warning fits the intent of this project. Mediocrity should beware, your former weak self should beware, complacency and comfort should beware, because at the end of this, they will no longer exist. There is nowhere for them to run or hide in your mind, you’re coming for them and this March, you’re destroying them.
A Seed is Planted
This series was 20 straight days where the author provided you with something. Whether it be focusing on your ability to pay attention or how you dressed yourself. Each day had a clear purpose and each day was improving and expanding on the skills of the previous day. The goal was to create a habit & create a mind which displayed the traits all ‘alpha’ males possess.
I came across this blog via @JackShepReturns (not dropping a link as he’ll probably be banned by twitter again within the month) and a seed was planted in my mind.
The Alpha Dog Days of summer was written in 2011. It’s time for the next installment, Spring.
We are heading into Spring soon and there’s no better time to reclaim and grow your masculine self than when the rest of the world is coming alive as well. While the heat rises so will your masculine flame. As flowers bloom so will you, showing the world the man which lives inside; no longer repressed but expressed.
March will be my first full month as a 30 year old.
What better way to start out this next decade of my life than with a month dedicated to self-improvement with my brothers?
Every day during the month of March I will be writing a post dedicated to embracing the ‘masculine-self’. These won’t be two paragraph ‘journal entries’, but actual posts. These are going to be the Spring equivalent of Alpha Dog Days of Summer.
The timing is perfect; at the end of the 31 days of March and Springing into your new Life you will enter April, May, & June.
They say when you start to work on yourself it takes 30 days for you to really notice, 60 days for friends and family to notice and accept this is the new you, and 90 days for the world to recognize your efforts.
March will build your foundation and you will enter the next 3 months armed with both the discipline and motivation to make this coming summer the summer in which you look good, feel good, and will always look back to as the point where you reclaimed your masculinity and took responsibility for your life and health.
- You’ve set and missed enough deadlines.
- You’ve relapsed enough times.
- You’ve suffered in silence for what seems like an eternity…
Make the commitment to yourself, put yourself first and actually commit to something and stick to it. Brothers, I’m telling you now, if you do not take ownership of yourself, here and now, after reading what I’ve written, you will regret it forever.
I’m not charging for this, I’m not making you sign up for any type of list, and I’m not making do pointless shit like pick a fight with a stranger. I’m just extending my hand through words, grab hold and save yourself from the quicksand of a weak society you’ve been slowing sinking into day by day. I’m putting the information out there and setting the bar, you either choose to reach it or you don’t.
But know this now, you’ll always look back to this moment and wish you’d fucking started and grabbed the hand of the man who was working to pull you out of the abyss of dismal living.
There are going to be challenges and you must commit to completing them. If I say do 100 push-ups that day, 50 in the morning is not good enough.
If I say I’d like you to look at your life and objectively isolate the areas where you are truly dissatisfied, this doesn’t mean ignore the difficult parts like sex, physique, etc.
The term Good Enough should be removed from your vocabulary in regards to obstacles as that mentality leads to mediocrity.
This is about breaking the mundane and mediocre existence you’ve lived up to this point.
This is about Springing into the next phase of your life, where you live genuinely, love masculinely, and fucking own each and every day; leaving nothing to chance, leaving nothing to regret.
Join me Brothers, let’s raise the standard and set the bar from which excellence will be measured.
