A new year is literally a few days away gentlemen and now is the time to get your engines started and kick 2015’s ass.
Looking back, this year has been a whirlwind for me. What started out as a once a week post on a men’s site, turned into book releases, a podcast, and this blog that was launched in January, with almost 300 blog posts in the first year. I had no idea it would grow to this magnitude. I had no idea that I would receive emails from readers saying stuff like this:
Before this year ends, I feel I owe you a big “thank you” for making my life immensely better. Your blog and forum have been invaluable. I can’t explain how important your writings have been for me.
Similar to your “the day I died” story, I was stuck in a one-itis situation. Ignoring all red flags, I loved her but she did not. The day she left broke me hard but luckily I stumbled upon your blog. Without you I don’t know how would I have fixed my life. I lacked a male role model and you showed me the way.
A sincere thanks to you Christian.”
I am humbled and honored to help.
But it’s not enough
2014 was about establishing something that could help men, because let’s face it, besides a handful of other blogs, the resources for men in this day and age is severely lacking. The major sites provide fluff geared around affiliate sales of “the latest watch you MUST have blah blah blah”. Their dating articles are written by women for men, which is the quickest way to wind up dateless, sexless and clueless.
2015 is about something bigger
It’s about breaking out and elevating on an entirely different level.
This will require more sacrifice on my end. It will require me to peel off more layers and bleed even more when I write about personal struggles. It will require me to continually push myself to tell my story in the hope that it helps other men.
If this blog isn’t a household name by the end of 2015, then I will have failed. It’s not about the stats or page views. I’m talking about a movement of men, albeit even a small group, who take the world by storm and set a new standard for what it means to be a man.
Men who will stand up.
Men who will be accounted for.
Men who will set the new standard for their generation and who will not follow, but will lead.
Men who are in demand
In demand by women, in demand by employers, in demand by clients, in demand by family, in demand by friends and in demand by the burning fire in your stomach to be something greater, better, smarter, stronger and leave a true legacy behind when our short time here on earth draws to a close.
2015 will not be average. 2015 will not be about contemplating and hoping. 2015 will be about kicking some ass. It will be about taking action no matter what and GETTING results, not HOPING for results. 2015 is going to be a great year and here’s a few step-by-step actions you can take to make sure it is.
#4. Make Up Your Mind
Too often it’s easy to say “Well I SHOULD”, or “Yea, I GUESS SO”, or “Perhaps that’s a GOOD IDEA, BUT”. Fuck that. Nix those phrases from your vocabulary.
2015 is the year that your mindset is made up
You will not procrastinate. You will not delay anymore. You will not put off until tomorrow what you can do today (Benjamin Franklin).
You will make up your mind.
Absolutely. Positively. Concretely.
Being a wishy-washy boy will only get to a place of mediocrity. Is that really what you want? If you’re reading this blog, then I imagine not.
Make up your mind that whatever your focus is going to be on in 2015, you will DO it. Period. Case closed. Moving on.
#3. Sacrifice For Yourself
I challenge you to put yourself first above anyone else in 2015. “Well Christian that sounds selfish!”. Yea, it is. But guess what? It’s real damn hard to help others if you cannot help yourself first. Do you think that when I was homeless I could have let a friend crash on my couch? Or, lend some money to a family member to pay their rent? Or, even provide real motivation and inspiration from a place of absolute darkness and despair?
If you’ve always been that guy who pushes off improving himself because you need to help this friend, or that family member who continually drags you down, then it’s time to put on the brakes and take care of yourself. I can promise you that if you put yourself first, you will be able to help others much more than if you continue to ignore what YOU need and what YOU want.
Start listening to yourself
Take care of yourself.
Make yourself your BEST friend and you will achieve more than you could ever imagine.
#2. Cut Out The Noise
That ‘noise’ includes anything and everything that will not help you reach your goals. I can’t tell you what goals to make, because each and every one of you has personal gains you want to achieve in 2015, but I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt, that you will never reach them if you do not cut out the toxic influences in your life.
That means toxic media.
That means toxic blogs.
That means toxic friends.
That means toxic family.
That means a toxic girlfriend, or even wife.
That means any toxic influence that drags you down and creates a burden on your back. A burden of bullshit.
It will not be easy cutting these influences out of your life, but it is necessary
When I cut out toxic influences in my life, I had to remove myself from certain relationships, including male friends, certain girls and even some family. I cut out negative and bullshit media, everything from certain blogs to mainstream media sources. It was hard. But it worked and it will work for you, if you take the plunge and do it.
Cut out the noise of toxicity and watch your life elevate.
#1. Dedicate Yourself To Your Vision
To dedicate oneself is, “To dedicate is to assign, to commit or to give over.” (Vocabularly(dot)com)
The very act of dedicating yourself is to commit and to give yourself over to your vision.
Become possessed (in a good way) by your vision.
Become wholly dedicated to your vision so that NOTHING and NO ONE can get in the way.
Make your vision your obsession.
It’s not enough to have goals. One needs to have a vision. The vision will help you achieve your goals, but the vision will be the fire that gets you up at 5am to hit the gym, or the courage to approach that cute girl at the mall, or the balls to start your own company.
Without vision there is no legacy
Make up your mind. Sacrifice for yourself. Cut out the noise. Dedicate yourself to your vision.
