As the homework assignment for the Way of the Warlord program, I gave the homework assignment to work on how you deal with stress and anger. Today I’ll post 5 things I’ve been doing to keep calm and carry on when things get crazy, and what to do if you do end up loosing your cool
“People like to say that the conflict is between good and evil. The real conflict is between truth and lies.”
– Don Miguel Ruiz
A lot of the ills that the Red Pill community face every day are based off a plethora of topics that have either been purposely misconstrued or downright fabricated out of thin air in an effort to destroy the traditional family structure. These lies and falsehoods have had serious implications for any man seeking to start and raise a stable family with them as the head of the household with their wife as their second in command. To an extent, most modern women have been at least partially indoctrinated with some of these lies and as we covered earlier this week, some are far beyond redemption.

Marriage can be a wonderful thing, I have a good wife who supports me and I feel that I can trust. Not all women are like that however. Modern western society has corrupted so many women (and men) that it becomes very difficult to distinguish the needles from the haystack. Traditional dating activities like “dinner and a movie” or something similar are enjoyable, and are not any harm (other than to your wallet) but they do little in helping you find out what sort of integrity the woman you are dating has. There are some activities you can do to help you see those red flags before you make such a serious commitment. Continue reading “Six Dates You Need To Do Before Buying the Ring”
The other day I was listening to some talk radio on the way home. I don’t listen to much political talk as it often results in high blood pressure, but I do like to keep up with the current events, even if it’s just the basics. Phil Valentine, a local talk show host, was discussing the recent NFL situation where the athletes were refusing to come out and stand for the national anthem.
He was discussing how some guy, possibly the leader of the NFL organization (hell if I know), was saying how this all was out of his control and he did not state one way or the other how the individual teams should behave. Continue reading “Lead Or Be Led”
I love camping. I love playing in the mountains, exploring, seeing new country, and doing activities that toughen myself and my children. With six kids, spending time in the outdoors can be a challenge. Whining, filthy little brats tax your patience, and yet spending the quality time is a great way to see them learn and grow.
The wife and I are pretty busy people. Between the kids, the house, and all the other things we have to do, it can get hectic and sometimes you forget that you’re in a relationship with another person. Sometimes we even feel tense until we realize that we haven’t “been acting like a couple” for a while. Today I’ll discuss what can lead to this and how we fix it.
“Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don’t interfere as long as the policy you’ve decided upon is being carried out.”
As men, our natural inclination is to take charge of a situation, even if it means doing it ourselves. While this means we have full control of the outcome, it also means we’re not utilizing our time and resources to the best of our ability. It becomes an issue of opportunity costs. If you’re wasting time doing menial tasks, it means you can’t use that time doing something that adds more value to your family’s life. Continue reading “The 48 Laws of Marriage: Law 7”
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.
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.
This past January, I took a new position at a very large company. It is a high stress, very demanding job that I knew I could get through if I dealt with it and didn’t give up. At times I was very irritable, tired, and generally wiped out. Being a leader means keeping morale high when things are going crazy. Today I’ll share my experience on how your behavior, mood, and demeanor affect those who look to you as a leader, and shine some light on what I did to get through the stressful times.
