Losing Your Job in Style

One of those things about life that's bittersweet is that endings do come, but when they do, you can be truly free to say and be who you really are.
I have a rare opportunity as a friend this week as opposed to being an “expert.” A friend of mine lost a job, so it’s time to step in to help like a buddy does. It's not a time for sciency stuff and "how-to" advice. That can all come later, but for now, we can all learn from this primal experience men have.

Ever notice that good things only seem to happen to OTHER GUYS? It's not that they are luckier. Notice opportunity then capitalize on it!
They often use phrases like “my dream job” or “a girl like that doesn’t come along every day…”
And they are dreamers.
Sometimes the dreamers out there get seduced by their fantasies though, and prefer to LIVE IN them rather than entering the real world to engage it as men.

How to Win by Surrendering

Words are important. What they mean and how we use them can get you a job, or send you into bankruptcy. They can cause the end of a date to find you in the arms of a woman, or trudging home in the cold, bitterly. They can even make the difference between living for years in a certainty that you are no good, worthless, a loser who is never going to win the career, the woman, or the life you dare not think you deserve, and actually having those things.

If you didn't believe words were important in this way, you likely wouldn't be reading this magazine.

Think Like a Surfer, Not an Accountant

Many guys struggle with career decisions such as what to choose in a job, when to quit, how to navigate the corporate politics, or how to even stay afloat in this economy in the first place. Very few have a "bird's eye view" on what their likely future path is going to be in career, as most of us at least some of the time, tend to "wing it." It turns out that this might be the whole point - that in discovering and executing on what it is that you were meant to do in life, it's better to have the mentality of a surfer than an accountant.

We all have varying degrees of tolerance for being criticized, and for how much, when, where and why to associate with coworkers, bosses and friends. As the world economy sputters and missteps - leaving many "trapped" in their current work environment - it sure would be handy to have a quick guide to recognizing the various brands of unavoidable criticism, while being aware of how to be a better, more constructive critic of others.

Perhaps one of the ultimate quotes for men on the topic of courage is that from Teddy Roosevelt's famous speech:

The 5 Women Who Will "Ruin Your Game"

They are the bane of your social life - ruining your best efforts at attracting women. And they may not even know they're doing it.

Of course you know who I'm talking about, even though we tend not to complain about it or mention it to others - especially women. Especially THOSE women.
