There are two books I am reading right now in order to change my mindset.
The first is Gorilla Mindset: How to Control Your Thoughts and Emotions to Live Life on Your Terms by Mike Cernovich, an unapologetically masculine and prolific writer who I admire.
The second is How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big: Kind of the Story of My Life by Scott Adams of Dilbert fame, whose articles on persuasion I very much admire as well.
Cernovich has an interview with Adams here, for the best of both worlds.
Getting more exercise is also a top priority. I have to get into martial arts classes somehow. I know that if I get more exercise, my thinking will be clearer and I will be able to write more. I used to write every day on this blog, and I want to get back to that.
I am to become an influencer, a strong, masculine man who can shape the world around me. Jesus did that, the disciples did that, and the only reason we can’t see that is because the Gospel has been feminized. I want to take the Good News back from emasculated men so we can see what we are supposed to see when we look at the Bible.
I also want to be a role model, someone men can point to and say, “I want to be like him,” and someone women can point to and say, “I want my man to be like that, or I want my sons to be like that.”
I’m not there yet. But this is what I am doing, and I’m on my way.
