Rules for Life

The Mission.

This is a page for guys, by guys.

We strive to give you valuable life advice, insight into the lives of great men, and some laughs along the way. Our life experiences have taught us a great deal, and we hope by sharing our knowledge you’ll avoid the poor choices we made, thus increasing your likelihood of success. We have an opinion on most topics, and if decide to we express that perspective, it’s because we’ve thought it through using research and logic (not emotion). We try to keep you entertained with daily posts, stories and original blog articles, along with the occasional video and some custom merchandise in our store. We hope you enjoy our content!

Despite the popular anti-masculinity rhetoric promulgated by the media, we believe it’s important to consistently emphasize our message: the world needs strong men.

The data shows kids who grow up with a present, engaged dad are less likely to drop out of school or wind up in jail, compared to children with absent fathers and no other male caretakers or role models. When kids have close relationships with father figures, they’re less likely to have sex at a young age and tend to avoid other high-risk behaviors. They’re more likely to have high-paying jobs and healthy, stable relationships when they grow up. They also tend to have higher IQ test scores by the age of 3 and endure fewer psychological problems throughout their lives when fatherhood is taken seriously. Strong men generally become strong dads, which leads to more successful kids, and an overall better society.

Today’s society has taken aim at men by:

  • Demonizing our inherent masculinity
  • Judging us as guilty until proven innocent during accusations of sexual assault
  • Punishing us via the court system for failed marriages
  • Assuming we are all sexual predators with no respect for women

We think this treatment is wrong, and we aren’t afraid to speak out about it. The best way to change the narrative is to be the example of the change you’d like to see in the world. Regardless of what some hashtag on social media says, actions still DO speak louder than words.

You may not agree with everything we say, and that’s okay; you shouldn’t. Real men should develop their own opinions by thinking for and educating themselves. It’s statistically impossible for you to agree with everything we say, so if you disagree that’s okay. We’re still cool, because real men can respectfully disagree and still get along.

Notice, I threw in the word “respectfully”, because that’s what it’s all about… respect for oneself, others, opinions, perspectives, beliefs and cultures. We acknowledge that people are different; that what works for one might not necessarily work for another… it’s important to emphasize that any ideas or concepts we support tend to work for the majority, but not necessarily the entirety. We can respect that not everything in this world is black and white; that many of us live in the “gray”, and that there are no absolutes except death and taxes.

We are here to bring men a positive, thought-provoking and helpful environment in which we can freely (and respectfully) discuss topics that are important to men. Our society (and social platforms) have created an unaccountable culture rife with disrespect, a lack of manners, and above all absent of discipline and self control. This won’t be tolerated here, and trolls will be banned. We ain’t got time for that BS.

The strong man is a master of controlling his emotions, is highly accountable, forms his own opinions, and never tolerates disrespect. These qualities generally help people win, so it’s no surprise that the people trying to demonize the traditionally masculine male are actually losers in real life. Generally speaking, everyone can’t be number one, but almost everyone can be envious of number one. Never feed the trolls…

We don’t advocate for blindly following us, the media, or anyone else. We hope to help you find your sense of purpose in life. We exist to help you through tough times, confusion, and problems… and we think it helps to laugh along the way. We encourage the next generation of strong men to lead by example, to act with accountability, and to live with honor. We are real men 💪
