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.

It's the age-old question of what motivates us.

One of the ways of looking at a guy who seems to have a problem with motivation is this: is he even interested in what he is trying to get motivated to do?

And if he isn't motivated, could it potentially be that what he tries to set himself about doing is wrong for him, not suited to him, won't in the end be the reward he really wants if successful, and therefore it's all for the best that he not be motivated at that item?

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.

Ariadne's Thread

It doesn't matter if you are a majorly challenged guy in the areas of women or work - or rather adept at both. You likely have some major dreams and ambitions, some of which you are willing to bet it all to achieve. Men's levels of willingness to risk may vary widely, but there are just certain things that you can't scrimp on, or ignore or avoid. There's something you need to know about (believe it or not) the field of Greek mythology.
