What is the ideal masculine lifestyle?
The answer to that question is part of the entire vision that I have for Spartan Ownership.
As a society, it is clear that we have strayed away from that ideal as our culture has become more and more estrogenic by the day.
That’s not to say that living in the past is what I’m preaching.
There are many benefits to be enjoyed and integrated in modern times.
So what is the ideal masculine lifestyle today?
I believe that every man can uniquely answer that question for himself…
However, I believe that there are some core aspects of that kind of lifestyle that we can all agree on.
A masculine lifestyle must involve training the mind and body. Period.
You must train your mind for mental toughness and emotional resilience so that you can pass the test that each day gives you.
You must train the body so that you become physically strong and capable of exerting your will on potential threats, having tons of energy so that you can give your gift, attract beautiful mates, etc.
I believe that a masculine lifestyle is one in which a man is constantly asking himself if what he’s doing is truly aligned with his purpose or if he’s living a lie to satisfy the expectations of his mommy, daddy, government, social conditioning, etc.
Are you living life on your terms or are you bullshitting yourself? Are you happily stagnating in comfort and mediocrity? Are you in a rut where you come home after work every day and decay in front of the TV?
Are you wearing the pants in your relationship or is your woman the boss of you?
Do you have a strong tribe of like-minded men who will hold you accountable to the highest standards of integrity, strength, enlightenment, etc?
Do you have high-performance daily/weekly habits such as meditation, martial arts, fishing, hunting, wood-working, building/renovating your house, farming, reading, and more?
Do you prepare yourself to face potential threats to your tribe and/or household whether physical or financial?
Are you in a position where you overly rely on the government for everything and if shit were to hit the fan (natural disaster, burglar, etc) you’d be fucked?
I believe that the above questions are integral to a masculine lifestyle.
Let’s create a new movement,

I like this post… I speak with many young men in my family about what they envision as their perfect masculine life. Regardless of whether it is currently accepted by society or other people on their lives at the moment. Don’t allow your current situation and circumsances to shape your dreams!
