(Man Decoded Daily Life Domination Hacks – Why You Need To Open Up?)
I want to talk to you guys about something that I’ve struggled with for a long time in my early years, and what I see a lot of guys struggle with as I talk to them. Many men are often expected to be masculine, we are expected to be strong, we are expected to be able to put up with life’s adversities. Thus, we end up holding back our true feelings.
And the challenge is, we are holding onto all the problems that we have and we are too scared to go out and talk about them. This causes a lot of men to fall into mental illness such as depression. And I’ve been there. When I was younger, every time I wanted to do something new or every time I wanted to take my life to the next level, or if I’m going through a hard time with a business that isn’t going well, relationships aren’t going well, other things aren’t going well, I’ve got problems with people that I know or whatever it is I’m facing. Whenever I’m holding all that in, I would find myself having a hard time making decisions. And the longer I held it in, the harder it was.
Let me give you guys an analogy. Imagine there were three frogs on a log and one of those frogs decided to jump. How many frogs are there? A lot of you will answer Two. However, it’s wrong. The answer is simple. It’s three. Many men I speak to, find that they make a decision but they are too scared to take the action. So the problem is one, making a decision; and two, taking the action to back it. And every time you take action and you have some type of result, whether it’s a positive or negative result, whether you achieved your goal or not, all that you’re doing every single time is giving yourself that confidence in you being able to make a decision and take action.
This is something that I see holding many men back, whether it’s in their business, whether it’s in their relationships, whether it’s in their health, whether it’s in their careers, whether it’s going after someone they truly love and they truly want to go off like a dream, whether they want to start a business but chose that dead-end job instead, all because of the fear of the unknown. We don’t make decisions and we don’t back up our decisions. So this is something that I really want to get out to the men out there (and women obviously). If you’re having an issue or if you’re scared to make a decision or you don’t know who to speak to about it, it’s always good to reach out to someone, reach out to someone who you trust, reach out to someone who’s going to be confidential.
Sometimes you need to reach out to people who are outside the family, outside your circle because sometimes we need that third party perspective because it’s easier to open up to them rather than someone who you’ve got an emotional connection with. If you are having a challenge, if you’re too scared to make a decision, too scared to take action, you should speak to someone. If you want to speak to me, feel free to inbox me. So remember to always back yourself.
