Pick Your Battles

“He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.”

-Sun Tzu

Introduction

Inspired by a section of yesterday’s article, I decided I would elaborate on the subject of picking your battles.  The Manosphere is full of articles about attacking problems and situations head on, but there are very few posts on when it’s best to sit back and patiently wait for the proverbial noose to tighten around your opposition’s neck.  Continue reading “Pick Your Battles”

When Dread Game Doesn’t Work

Introduction

A while back, one of our readers discussed a personal situation where the principles of Dread Game did not work for him.  If I remember correctly, his personal experience led him to surmise that Dread Game was a flawed system and does not work.  Today, we’re going to look into this topic a bit deeper and determine what went wrong and the red flags you should be on the look out for.

They Need Your Leadership

As we know, even a successful man can and will be manipulated if he lets his frame waiver.  I’ve seen this time after time with men I’ve known my whole life.  One account happened recently to a guy I know.  Today I’ll report on why I think it failed and what everyone needs to remember; to be a father/husband is to accept the role of leader at all times.

Why Do Men Need Dread Game?

A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
-Proverbs 30: 10-18

Introduction

To many new members to the Red Pill or Manosphere, the idea of Dread Gaming your wife brings about mixed emotions. While the initial principles actually seem harmless and rather productive, the idea of “dreading” and “gaming” your wife comes across as manipulative, shady, and coercive. I have mentioned in previous installments of this series that the steps prescribed are intended to restore balance to a marriage, it is still often met with apprehension by many newcomers who aren’t fully acquainted with the intent of the process.

In this article, we’re going to discuss what caused the rise of systems such as Dread Game, the Red Pill, and the Manosphere as a whole.

Ignoring The Urge to Quit

 

Whether you’re about about to make that last rep, about to get that last mile in, or 20 minutes out from completing a project, there seems to be this voice telling you that “this is too hard” and “just give up.”  I’ve worked to ignore this voice and push myself harder than I ever could by grinding on and keeping things moving.  To me, that is the key to overcoming your own self doubt and unreal limitations.

Don’t Sacrifice Your Dignity and Self-Respect

A picture circulating around Twitter has been generating quite a buzz and not in a good way…

Now I’m a pretty laid back guy and generally stay pretty detached from my emotions, but every time I see this picture I am awash in a mixture of disqust, pity, and contempt.

Those of you with weak constitutions, look away now… Continue reading “Don’t Sacrifice Your Dignity and Self-Respect”

Building A Mental Firewall

 

If frame is our personal set of boundaries, and sense of self that we do not change, then my topic today kind of plays off of that concept.  As a leader, you get to decide what your family is subjected to on a daily basis.  If nothing else, you can mitigate the amount of toxicity they are exposed to and  you can use this added time to build a stronger relationship with your family.

The 48 Laws of Marriage: Law 6

“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining – they just shine.”

-Dwight L. Moody

Well gentlemen, it’s been a while since I’ve covered another one of the 48 Laws of Marriage, but here we are again.  Law 6 is a bit of a confusing law to apply to marriage and I will readily admit that it took a bit of thinking of this tool in a different light to figure out how to apply it to marriage.
