Most of the people in the world have very low energy levels, but everyone wants more.
More energy means you can work harder, longer, and faster. It means that you can accomplish things that you only dreamed of. Maybe you want to start a business, but just don’t have the energy.
Or maybe you’re trying to get in the habit of working out, but the energy just isn’t there. Either way, you need energy if you want to function at a high level in life.
What most people don’t realize is that energy is actually very much psychological—and there’s 3 very common “energy sappers,” that 99% of people have without even realizing it.
This list is a compilation of the very best books that I’ve ever read. These are some of the best books for men in existence, covering many topics.
They range from books on psychology to bodybuilding to masculinity, but they’re all incredibly valuable and we can learn a lot from them.
I’m an avid reader—I try to read a book a day (keyword: try), so I’ll be periodically updating this list with quality literature.
This list has already undergone 7 updates, and I don’t expect it to stop growing any time soon. Who knows, maybe one day it’ll hit 100 books.
If you have a suggestion, be sure to leave it in the comments section down below! I read and respond to all of the comments.
So, with that in mind, let’s get to it.Read More
I’ve always wondered if it’s possible for you to increase your IQ. Neuroscience is a very interesting field to me, and I’ve gone on quite the journey trying to improve myself. I’ve tried modafinil along with other smart drugs, I’ve tried playing chess, and I’ve even delved into the world of psychedelics.
Some people claim that diet is the secret to increasing your IQ. Others claim that it’s about nootropics or exercise, and some even claim that your IQ is fixed by your genetics. Despite this, there’s a lot of evidence to show that you actually can increase your IQ…and you can do it very quickly.
A while back I discovered a very simple, effective game that can increase your IQ by up to 2.75 points an hour—you won’t be able to play it for more than 15 minutes though, because it’s extremely difficult.
Regardless, this game is one of the most effective tools that I’ve used to increase my IQ, and I believe that if you use it as well, you’ll reap massive rewards.
Starting Strength can be one of the best workout routines for beginners, so if that’s what you want, then look no further.
I know how frustrating it can be, searching around, trying to figure out where to start. There’s literally a million different “gurus” saying that you should do this, or that you should do that. It’s incredibly confusing.
I was in the same boat about a decade ago, and I wasted years following stupid workout routines that don’t work.
Most people will tell you to do a split, but in my experience most people also don’t know what they’re talking about.
In my nearly 10 years of fitness experience, the best workout routine for beginners is Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength, due to its sheer simplicity, effectiveness, and time-efficiency.
“How do I become an alpha male?”
Plenty of men, after being exposed to the manosphere, ask themselves this question…but it isn’t entirely accurate.
There’s a billion articles talking about “Top 10 Alpha Male Behaviors,” or “Signs You’re a Beta Male,” and I’m here to tell you it’s all bullshit.
Yeah, most of it is bullshit. Being “alpha” or “beta” has NOTHING to do with your behavior, and everything to with your BELIEFS.
If this sounds confusing to you, then read on.Read More
Finding a good bulking diet when you’re broke as a joke can be REALLY difficult. Bodybuilding foods can cost an arm and a leg.
I remember when I first made my bulking on a budget meal plan. I was a broke college student trying to save money.
Despite my lack of income, I was determined to get big—it wasn’t a “want,” it was a “must.” I wanted to bulk up… and I wanted to do it fast.
So, I decided to create the most calorie-efficient, cheapest, clean bulking diet possible—and I succeeded.
On just $100 a month, I was able to successfully bulk up for the winter, putting on a solid 20 pounds of muscle. Plus, all of my lifts went up.
So, if whether you’re a broke college student, an entrepreneur trying to put all your money into a business, or just a guy who doesn’t want to spend a lot of money on food, here’s the best clean bulking diet for you.
It’s no secret that having a chiseled jawline makes you more attractive to women. In fact, studies have shown that a man’s jawline is the number one determinant of whether or not a man’s face is attractive to the opposite sex.
Every single sex symbol out there, whether it be Brad Pitt or Taylor Lautner, has a chiseled jawline.
There’s just no way around this: if you want to turn heads, and have women approach YOU, you need to develop a chiseled jawline.
Yes, you should still learn how to talk to girls, how to dress well, and how to be more confident to attract women…
…but why not make things easier on yourself, and maximize your looks? It’s pretty easy to do, too. You can easily get a more chiseled jawline in a month.
Written in 1895, Rudyard Kipling’s “If” is now widely regarded as a gemstone in the world of poetry. It was written in the form of masculine guidance, for his son, “John,” in which he passes down timeless wisdom by which his son should live by.
Unfortunately, many men nowadays lack this masculine guidance—whether it’s because we had absentee fathers, or because our fathers just weren’t in touch with their masculinity, most of us don’t ever get straight-shooting, no-bullshit advice on how to live life as a man.
So, today, I’ve decided to go in depth on this poem, in the hopes that we all may learn from Kipling’s masculine wisdom. Here’s my analysis of his poem, “If.”
Men’s accessories will either make you or break you. They can make you look sexy and intriguing, or like a 16 year old boy who’s trying to pull girls by wearing his dad’s Rolex.
Good men’s accessories accentuate your outfit and give girls an excuse to open you.
I’ve had girls walk right up to me, put their hands on my necklace, and ask “That’s so cool! What is it?” more times than I can remember. It’s an easy way to give girls something to talk about with you, and it works very well.
Women spend hours getting ready, doing their hair, matching their accessories, putting on makeup, and squeezing into the perfect dress, so when a man is very well put together, they’ll notice. Good men’s accessories will set you apart from 99% of men.
We’ve all heard it before. “Just be yourself!” Whether it’s your parents telling you that you’re fine just the way you are, or a girl telling you to just “be yourself,” every single one of us has been told this before.
And the truth is, a lot of people struggle with being themselves. But, it isn’t that simple—sometimes you want to be yourself, and sometimes you don’t. Sometimes it’s a good thing, and sometimes it’s not.
Depending on who I’m talking to, “just be yourself,” could actually be the worst advice in existence. But, if I’m talking to someone else, it could actually be the best advice in existence. Here’s why.
