5 Things Every Man Should Know How to Do
Every man should have these skills
Manhood has taken a nosedive recently. Men aren't what they use to be, but instead of conformed to modern society's demands on them.
Manhood is on the decline, but it doesn't have to be. Take some steps in your life to become someone who has experienced what it really means to be a man.
#5 Keep himself in as good of health and mind as possible.
A man knows that sometimes physical strength and prowess is necessary. You might need to run, fight, or lift. A real man will keep himself in shape, if possible.
A man will also keep himself sharp of mind, up on current events, and able to form opinions on world happenings.
#4 Provide food for himself and his family
A real man knows how to provide food for his family. If you are in a rural area, this might mean killing a deer, catching fish, or even farming.
A real man living in an urban environment will find a job, no matter how menial or overqualified he is a provide. Making money for his family to eat can be done even working for McDonald's.
No one said it would be easy, and that sacrifices wouldn't have to be made.
#3 Knows how to attack an idea, not the person
A man always respects those who deserve it. He might disagree, and can be vocal about his disagreements, but he will at least respect the other party.
Attacking the person, mudslinging without content, just isn't acceptable for a real man.
A real man will attack ideas with other ideas, innovation, and improvements.
#2 Drive Stick
A man drives stick, even prefers it. The relationship between a man and his car should be a sacred one. A man should know his car life a lifelong friend or lover.
I believe that this relationship evolved from the man and horse relationship in the past. A man's horse was his livelyhood, whether he herded cattle with it, rode to town, traveled to another part of the country, or plowed his fields.
Automatic transmissions simply do not have the same ability to connect you to the road like a manual transmission does.
#1 Comes through in clutch situations
A real man doesn't choke. He comes through, and can be relied upon. He might get the jitters, or even be scared. But he controls his fear, harnesses it, and uses it to try to excel.
Fear is a powerful motivator, and a real man uses that fear to do better, not worse.
Don't confuse bravery with foolishness, however. A real man knows when the time is not right to make a stand, and it would be better to retreat and lick wounds.
