how to win an argument with a woman

How to Defuse Arguments With Women

Human beings have two “brains,” so to speak: our logical side, and our emotional side. For women, their right brain, or intuitive/emotional side, is typically much stronger than their left brain, or logical/analytical side.

Men, on the other hand, are typically much more logical than they are emotional. This simple difference between men and women is where 99% of disagreements and arguments come from.

During an argument with a woman, men typically think that her problem is “logical,” when it’s really emotional. Men try to come up with reasons why she should think a certain way or why she’s wrong, not realizing that she doesn’t want reasons, because she doesn’t want a logical response.

She’s trying to communicate something to you on an emotional level, and if you don’t realize this, she will walk away angry or crying from an argument every single time.

best whey protein for cutting

A Guide to Shitty vs. High Quality Whey Protein

“What’s the best whey protein?” the gym-going newbie asks.

Well, as I’ve said before, whey protein is basically the cornerstone supplement for building muscle. It’s perfect right after a workout, because it’s fast digesting—it gets your muscles the protein that they need in just 30 minutes (compared to a meal, which takes around 2 hours).

But it’s not that simple—not all whey protein is created equal. This is one of the first things that I learned from working at a supplement store in college. There’s cold processed whey, grass-fed whey, casein blends, isolate matrixes, and protein concentrate…how in the hell do you know what to choose?

Well, I’ve tried probably 50 different whey protein supplements and narrowed it down to a few of the best so that you don’t have to waste your time and money. Here’s the best whey protein supplements, in my opinion.

how to find your purpose and passion

How to Find Your Masculine Purpose (Monetize Your Passion)

We live in a world where most men are completely devoid of any purpose. Most men stumble through life without ever really waking up—they’re in a haze, drifting from day to day, and they never realize their full potential.

Rather than learning to monetize your passion, you simply relinquish your masculine purpose and spend your life furthering your boss’s goals. I want to change this. We need more men to wake up from the matrix.

We need men to realize that they can change reality. We don’t have to accept the bullshit system that is thrust upon us, we have the power to create our own destinies, and I’m going to teach you how. Before I begin, however, I want to define just what a”masculine purpose,” really is.

A “masculine purpose,” is having a clear, distinct goal in life, that is reflective of what you’re passionate about, and taking action to turn this purpose into a reality.

3 Best Nootropics For Men Trying to CRUSH Life

I recall the first time that I started experimenting with nootropics—I was 18 years old and was looking to get an edge in trading the stock market. I heard that execs from silicon valley and Harvard Law students were popping smart pills to get the best of their competitors.

It wasn’t long until I realize that not all nootropics are created equal, however. As I embarked on my endless quest to find the best nootropics out there, I invariably encountered some of the worst.

I spent literally thousands of dollars trying out different supplements claiming to increase my intelligence, and I’ve compiled a list of the best nootropics (in my experience) for you down below. I hope you enjoy.

the core four ways to define masculinity

How to Define Masculinity: The 4 Core Spheres of Self

When you’re trying to define masculinity you’re bound to encounter a number of problems. Is masculinity physical? Or is it biological? Different cultures define masculinity differently; is there some sort of objective way to define masculinity?

These are all valid questions, and I think that there’s some merit to their respective answers, but in this article, I will attempt to explain masculinity using the “Four Core Spheres of Self,” a term I’ve coined that consists of:

  • Your mind
  • Your body
  • Your emotions
  • Your spirituality

How to Invest in Yourself The Right Way

“What’s the best investment out there?” asks the young kid with fire in his heart, trying to make it big in the world. Well, there’s a lot of talk about how investing in stocks at a young age is a good thing to do—and it is. But what’s actually more important, is to start investing in yourself from a young age.

Investing in yourself is without a doubt the best investment in existence. It will improve literally every aspect of your life, from your finances, to your sex life, to your happiness, to your body.

We can all start investing in ourselves, today, even if we have very little money. I often see people buying the latest pair of Nikes for $230, but when asked to shell out just $15 for a book that could completely change the way they view things, they say “Nah, man—I can’t afford it.”

Yes, you can afford it—it’s just a matter of spending your money wisely.

How to Actually be Successful by Eliminating BULLSHIT From Your Life

What people often don’t understand is that success isn’t due to luck. It isn’t due to your connections, it isn’t due to having wealthy parents, and it sure isn’t due to following the well trodden path.

Success is a mindset. Once you learn to adopt a certain mindset, success will come naturally.

I guarantee that if you took Elon Musk, Bill Gates, 50 Cent, or any successful, self-made entrepreneur, and put them into the middle of some poverty-stricken ghetto, within a decade they would be millionaires, if not billionaires again.

Why is this? It’s because they have the “millionaire mindset,” so to speak. They know the principles that lead to success, which I’m going to talk about today.

creative ways to save money in college

10 Creative Ways to Save Money

Generally speaking there are three ways to get rich: to generate new wealth, protect existing wealth, and minimize expenditures.

Generating new wealth comes down to developing assets, such as investing in the stock market, buying a franchise, working a job, or creating a method of passive income.

Protecting existing wealth comes down to setting up safety nets, such as automatic triggers to sell if a stock gets too low, investing in stable stocks such as Coca Cola, or having a stash or physical gold in the case of an economic collapse.

This article will focus on the third method, however. Here are some unconventional ways to save money (aka minimize expenditures):

Gym Gear: The 4 Essentials For Breaking PR’s

I actually didn’t even use gym gear for a while. Not because I thought it was cheating or anything like that, I mean Olympic power-lifters use it all the time. I guess I just never really thought about it.

But when I recently started using the following gym gear, my max lifts literally went up overnight. My bench went up 10%, my squat went up 15%, and my deadlift went up a whopping 25%.

If you’re a guy who’s trying to get bigger in the gym, or if you’re just trying to get stronger and leaner, I highly urge you to use gym gear for the major compound lifts.

The Slight Edge: How it Will Transform Your Life

When you look at someone like Elon Musk, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or Bill Gates, it’s easy to be intimated. It’s easy to think that they were just born with some sort of supernatural gift that none of us have.

But the truth is, that every single one of us has just as much potential as they do—we just aren’t taught how to cultivate it. The school system and our parents fail us. They don’t teach us the secrets to success.

The secret to cultivating your dream life, lies within a very simple concept known as the slight edge.
