A recent thread over on the forum made me think of the most important aspects of masculine development. Here is a list of the 6 most important themes from that thread.

1. “Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.” — Richard Feynman

The one thing you can be sure of in life is your own mind. The knowledge you have accumulated will grow and serve its purpose into old age. It is this knowledge which will help you more than instinct. Always be reading and learning from those more knowledgeable than you. Most people’s minds are sedated by technology and the internet. Everything that has ever been written is at your fingertips so go and find something, anything to learn about. Whether it be a new skill, history, philosophy or science, always be learning.

2. “Game is everything and everything is game” — Tuthmosis

Game is a mandatory skill for every man. The most successful men you meet will have impeccable social skills. Game gives you the ability to make people comfortable and get what you want out of life. Follow the 16 commandments to a T and always be tweaking your skills. Pussy makes the world go ’round, think outside the box and learn to make your own supply. If you want good favors from the poon-gods always have your logistics in check.

3. “Women. They are a complete mystery” — Steven Hawking

commandment 3

Not if you study game.

Understand the nature of women, what drives them and then you will know how to approach them. The one piece of advice for any man would be to judge women by their actions and not by their words. The same girl that says shes a nice girl who likes a sensitive man will be dripping wet after displays of your masculine dominance. Know that women crave strength and dominance; weakness elicits disgust. In spite of this do not hate women for what they are, understand their nature and appreciate it. Instead of detesting that a woman will base her actions off of emotions (and rationalize them later) use this to your advantage and instill in her the mood you want.

4. Health Is Your Number One Priority

Health, like knowledge, is best to create early in life. Being healthy is being free. Start lifting, eat unprocessed foods and experiment with things like juicing. Aside from your physical well-being a healthy body will improve your game.

5. “Be so bold and daring as to make yourself excruciatingly uncomfortable.” — thedude3737

Always be pushing yourself to be better. Stagnation is the enemy of progress and without pushing your comfort zone you will never progress. This discomfort will eventually turn into confidence in a given situation and this confidence is the life-blood of self-improvement. Confidence will also allow you to maneuver effortlessly in any aspect of your life leading to improvements in all areas. Douse your fears and success will follow.

6. Be Completely Unapologetic In Your Masculinity

Do not let the ‘shit-test’ that is modern feminism discourage you from embracing your biology. Do not apologize for your testosterone. Read and experience all that is man. Eat steak, drink beer, have sex with feminine women. This being said do not espouse your views because the average person is too comfortable in their naive existence. Be the change you want to see and follow the 48 Laws Of Power while you’re at it.
