Oh boy, I saw some 2021 predictions and I'm just shaking my head. All rosy. The economy is going to turn around, things will look better in the latter part of the year "if everyone does his or her part" in the pandemic.
Yeah, obey your government, slave, and maybe we'll be merciful enough to get that jackboot off your face!
Remember the Grand Cycle:
Good Times -->Weak Men-->Bad Times-->Strong Men-->Good Times
If you take a look at the screeching bunch of adult children coming out of University who can leave their safe space and compare that to men the same age storming the beaches of Normandy and into certain death, you'll definitely understand.
We have a lot of weak people. A lot of these betas are in position of power right now; we're definitely in for some rough times.
2021 will be worse. Prepare for it.
But in the carnage of our Old Normal, the process has begun to weed out the Strong Men from the weak. Will you be one of them?
I've listed some general advice on how to survive and maybe even get ahead in 2021.
There are 6 points here. That's it. I'm not going to bother trying to round it out to 10 because it looks good. Here goes.
1) When all else fails, always fall back onto your health!!!
If your business closed down permanently and you had to take that shit job at Amazon, don't give up hope. Improve on your health!!! Walk for 30 minutes a day, lift those weights, lose the pounds, and you'll gain enough confidence to lift yourself out of the hole. That confidence spreads to all aspects of your life outside of your health, and will give you the swagger to get another business started, land a good paying job, etc.
Do something you love to do.
2) Find a hobby you love that might give you some earning potential, and develop it further.
Giving yourself a large project with a difficult but doable goal will help give you the focus you need to tackle all aspects of your life. Fix up a car, improve on a room in your house, do some needed repairs, etc...the possibilities are endless. Men are always goal-oriented creatures, and by giving yourself a worthy goal, you'll keep giving yourself a sense of purpose in life. And it's an amazing feeling when you actually hit that goal!
3) Stop wasting time on social media and news sites on the internet!
A minute spent checking up on a friend posting his bowel movement on Facebook is definitely a productive minute wasted from your life. The 24 hour news cycle isn't that much better either. In the past we had the 6PM local news, the 6:30PM National news, and that was it. Keep yourself updated with events, of course, but that can easily be done in 1 hour instead of 6 hours each day.
4) Don't spend too much time pursuing women.
I'm going to get some hate mail for this, but it has to be said. Wasting good chunks of time texting women, writing to them, in the hopes of getting a date with them will only result in disappointment. Women are hardwired to consider these men weak and will often put you off that way. Instead, spend time to improve your health, get financially stable or even wealthy, get your confidence in yourself up, and the women will actually come to you. And I don't think the women can deny this either.
5) Be resourceful. Now might be the time to think outside the box.
Even though the jackboot of government is in the process of killing your small business during this Great Hysteria, doesn't mean that it's down for the count. I've transformed my business from a gym-centric one to a remote and residence-based business to get around the restrictions.
The other way is to team up with other small businesses and openly flout the restrictions. As a strong, united front against tyranny, you can get the government to back down. You'll take your lumps in terms of fines or arrests, but strong, free men never look for approval from the government, right? Stay strong, and your business might just survive.
6) For the Family Men - Always Put Yourself FIRST Before Providing For Your Family
Another controversial topic that might get some hate mail, but reading into it, you are going this FOR your family because you want to be there for them in the long haul. If you stay fit and work your butt off to improve in your work, you'll be in a POSITION OF STRENGTH to keep helping out your family over the long haul.
On the other hand, if you neglect your health and your diet in favor of your family first, you'll be a blubbering, obese mess before you know it, or in the grave, and you certainly cannot help your family that way, can you?
A sure way I do this is to set aside the first task each morning for me only! Go out and run for 30-60 minutes, lift some weights, even work on a project for 30-60 minutes also. Don't make it more than 60 minutes though; the object is to set the right tone for the rest of the day. Once you're done after 60 minutes you can definitely attend to your family's needs.
That's about it. If you have any questions or comments, let me know.
Have a Dutiful and Strong New Year.
