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.
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):
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.
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.
What if I told you that creepiness actually has nothing to do with the way that a guy looks? What if I told you that a male model can come off as creepy, too? Would you believe me?
Probably not—most people think that creepiness has to do with the way that you look, but if you actually talk to women about this, you’ll realize that it’s much more of a “vibe,” than it is a look.
Creepiness has everything to do with you being needy. It has nothing to do with the way that you look. Here’s why:
Becoming more productive is actually incredibly simple. You don’t have to increase your brain power or do anything too difficult, you just have to shift the way that you approach tasks and goals.
Unfortunately, however, there’s a ton of bullshit advice out there when it comes to scheduling, and it’s hard to know what works.
Trust me—I’ve tried all of it, and most of it doesn’t work, but there’s a few gems that I’m going to share with you today. If you properly implement this advice into your life, I guarantee that you will be more productive, happier, and have a much more fulfilling life.
A lot of guys wonder what the key to success is. Persistence? Hard work? Or maybe being decisive? Well, these things are all great, but there’s one key to success that’s even more fundamental than these.
It’s what will make persistence easy. It’s what will enable the hard work. And without it? You won’t ever be decisive. Despite the incredible impact of this one little key to success, it’s actually very simple. Do you know what it is?
It’s your ability to stay present to the moment, and to focus on the process, not on the results. In other words, it’s learning to enjoy the journey.
Anyone who’s been involved in the “PUA community” recently knows about the phenomena of shit tests.
Shit tests are snide little remarks that women throw at you to test you.
Depending on how you react, she’ll either become completely disinterested with you, or she’ll take note and start to view you as an alpha male. Most guys fail these “shit tests” miserably—and they have piss poor results with women to show for it.
Once you know how to pass them, however, you’ll notice that your success rate with women will sky rocket.
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. 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 4 separate 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!
Now, without further ado, here are the best books for men of all time:
