Motivation for life, Motivation for men

Perseverance

Hello again gents!

Today we discuss another alpha male trait that lives inside you that you need to begin embracing to start starving towards your full potential as a man.

Perseverance

I know at some point in your life you’ve had to overcome hard circumstances, a lost job, broke up with a girlfriend, wife, beloved family member, or suffered any kind of personal or professional setback.

You know the old saying “when it rains it pours”? Old sayings would not be old if they had no meaning to them.

When something goes wrong it seems as if another thing goes wrong, and then another, another, or the “snowball effect” right?

It has happened to all of us at some point in our lives. When one thing goes wrong we can deal with it, but it seems to come in twos, threes, or fours and our spirit becomes broken.

You may be asking yourself how does one stay so optimistic when all around you is crumbling? Simple: Perseverance is a quantifiable result of self-confidence and unwavering optimism.

When you know you have a tremendous amount of value to offer the world you push through the bad times and accept them as learning experiences to get you where you need to be in this life. (Self-confidence is tomorrow’s trait, hint, hint)

To boil it down to it’s simplest form, perseverance says more about you than you might think. Say you suffer  a setback, when you re-organize, learn from your mistake, and push on, and build something better than what you did before, you need speak not one word about how you have overcome obstacles because the results are right there for anyone to see.

“Actions speak louder than words” another old saying that is old because it is so true.

I’ll share an example from my very recent past:

I made friends with someone who I thought was a cool person and they turned out to burn me. They corrupted my files, hacked into my bank accounts, and set my freelance and ebook writing back a couple of weeks. I was trying to help this person deal with a personal problem that they only wanted to complain about and not really solve.

Naturally I had only two options: cry and feel sorry for myself and blast this person on Facebook or, accept that I had trusted the wrong person, ignored my instincts, and rebuild my brand, bigger and better than before.

Obviously I choose option two, I will get so much more satisfaction writing better posts, articles, and ebooks, then I will blasting that person and letting them win. Perseverance, like unwavering optimism are two of the corner stones of a winner’s mentality.

Winners know that the road will offer more than it’s fair share of obstacles and setbacks, but you must push through and accept your mistakes, learn from them and build something bigger and better than you did in the first place.

-Know you have a lot of value to offer the world

-Accept that all successful people suffer setbacks and learn from them

-If things keep going wrong, re-examine your routines, make adjustments, and try something different

Alright cool guys, until tomorrow, we discuss self-confidence.

Your partner in self-development crime,
