Given the fact that any “should” is most often used for the purpose of various kinds of manipulations, i.e. the provision of psychological impact on the person, in relation to this article, the meaning of this term is taken to be identical to the phrase “I could have been better.”
What should a man do
1. Stay true to yourself and do what he wants
Do you hate your job? Are you not happy with your girlfriend? Does it seem to you that you are living someone else’s life?
You systematically ask questions: “How can I find my calling?”, “How to change my life for the better?”
But the truth is that in the depths of your heart you already have the answer to this question.
You may not see the whole picture, but the key to the door, behind which is the room of your true desires, is already in your hands.
Do you think that your work, place of residence, the environment is all a bad dream in which you unwittingly find yourself the main character? And what, besides yourself, prevents all this from changing?
Be true to yourself, determine what you really want, and follow your goals.
2. Make money and have your own home
Money is not as good as without money.
Money is not the main thing, but money solves the vast majority of possible problems. Money is good, not bad. Feeling solvent is a special and indescribable feeling.
A man who does not seek to make money is a man who runs away from problems.
This does not fully apply to that minority, which has ventured into great achievements, putting short-term profit into the background.
However, for most men, the desire to make money is completely natural and vital.
Learn to make money and stop living on debt.
In addition, a man should have his own secluded place where he can patch his life’s wounds or spend time with loved ones.
If you have not yet acquired your own housing, it does not matter, the main thing is not to lose sight of this goal.
3. Develop professionally
As a rule, if a woman does not become very successful in the professional field, but at the same time she finds love and happiness in family life, she does not come up with negative thoughts about her failure, missed opportunities or wasted time.
In men, the opposite is true. Even if everything seems to be good in the family, but problems or failures arise in the field of a career or business, a man may well possess a feeling of depression and insignificance, which will ultimately have a negative impact on his personal life.
A man needs the realization of his own professional inclinations and skills, with the help of which he can find the meaning of his existence, earn income, and also achieve his goals.
What men are engaged in, the sphere of manifestation of their business and professional qualities can vary greatly, however, in any case, a man should constantly support the desire to develop his professional level.
Find your business and improve it daily. Developing professionally and realizing your goals, you will be filled with vital energy and become a confident, harmonious and attractive person.
And, of course, academic education will never hurt you.
4. Monitor your body and health
Before becoming an office worker, the man was engaged in agriculture, and even earlier he was a hunter.
For a long time before a person learned to buy an apartment on a mortgage, a man built houses for living with his own hands.
Evolutionarily, people are accustomed to more intense physical activity compared to those that most of us deal with in modern conditions.
We no longer need to hunt, harvest or build a house. We are used to spending all day in a sitting pose at work, being in a traffic jam or at the monitor screen.
Therefore, in order to keep fit and stay in good shape, it is very important to monitor your body, give it the necessary physical activity and be sensitive to your state of health.
5. Be disciplined and consistent
Discipline, constancy, systematicity, consistency – these are the ingredients on which the realization of goals and the realization of dreams come true.
How many times have you started a business and then dropped it? How many times have you sought to realize your goals, and then stopped halfway?
You may not even remember how many times this happened to you, but you hardly forgot that you regretted not daring to get to the end.
Lack of discipline, constancy and sequence of actions – the greatest enemy of any man, as well as the killer of his dreams.
This is the invisible “friend” who likes to do a disservice and whisper in his ear: “Everything is in order, you can not go to the gym today. Treat yourself. You have worked so much this week. ”,“ This is impossible. You will not make it. You are not capable of it. Don’t even think about it. ”,“ Look at the others, they are many times better than you. Who did you decide to compete with? ”
Don’t pay attention to these demons and often remind yourself why you all started this.
6. Be able to say “No” and prioritize
To start doing what you want, it’s important to stop doing what you don’t want to do.
Your friends make you drink for their health, and you have completely different plans? Is the incredible beauty from the commercial trying to convince you of the need for a training course? You are gently hinted that if you do not do what is being imposed on you, you should consider yourself at least inferior?
You can safely and calmly tell them all “No,” without even explaining anything. Only you should decide what is important and necessary for you.
In today’s consumer society, they constantly want to sell you something by sticking a label with the words “Happiness” on the product. Things, clothes, cars, status, women, success.
However, most often you are offered something that does not lead to the desired result or doesn’t have any real value for you. But only you are responsible for the significance level of the opinions of others in the system of your values.
7. Read and self-educate
Any person seeking to achieve something meaningful in the modern world, it is very important to engage in self-education, and even more so for a man.
The main source of knowledge and a consistently effective way of self-development is reading, especially reading books.
What level do you want to be at? At the level of a mediocre layman, living life within the framework imposed by his usual environment? Or do you still want something more?
The knowledge obtained from books enriches your life, allowing you to better solve problems that arise, as well as consider life situations and circumstances from a different angle.
Knowledge gives confidence and calm, lack of knowledge causes anxiety and fear.
8. Rest, have fun, travel
If you work all the time and never rest, you can become the richest person in the cemetery.
Most people are unable to be as effective as possible for a long time if their professional activities are not replaced by periods of rest and entertainment.
Having a hobby, planning a vacation, traveling and visiting new places is a productive way to escape from your usual worries and responsibilities, as well as fill yourself with the necessary energy for new achievements.
9. Communicate and build relationships with women
Women are interesting and fun with them. They can be cool or nasty, but without them at least boring.
A woman is neither a goal nor a meaning, but a wonderful complement to male existence. Yes, and it is unlikely that it will be possible to continue my birth line without them.
It is better to communicate with women easily and unobtrusively, simply and sincerely, with irony and not without a share of flirting.
It is recommended that relations with women be built in the form of mutually beneficial cooperation, but do not forget that you are the man in the relationship.
