foundations of manhood
10 Weeks To Create The Foundation Of The Man You Were Meant to Be
We know, you’ve lost your way. All of manhood has. You grew up in a lost world, cast adrift to the electronics that rule your life. Left behind to find your own way without a compass. You’re lost in a wasteland of static, just trying to find a connection to life. Any life.
And what you found is an emptiness. No one showed you how to be a man, you were expected to figure it out on your own. But they sure told you when you did it wrong, didn’t they? Seems everything you do is wrong.
We know, we’ve been there. And it’s about to change, my friend.
It’s time to take back your manhood. We’re not talking about false machismo, play acting like you’re a man for a weekend. We’re talking about true manliness. Being true to the man you were born to be.
It’s time to take your manhood back. It’s time to take your life back. It’s time to reclaim YOU.
