The Red 9
The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.
how to be a man:
I preserve the natural strength of my body with rigorous physical activity, proper diet and hydration, rest, and conscientiously use supplements and medical treatments. I avoid destructive indulgences and choose things that bring me vitality and strength. I create energetic moods by controlling my words, thoughts, and movements.
I am present. Wherever I may be, I am immersed in the moment. I eliminate distraction and act boldly and respectfully as the situation requires. I am fearless in defending myself and my tribe. My work is done with diligence and a pleasant attitude. I enjoy leisure and recreation reasonably, allow myself to entertain and be entertained. I maintain traditions with my tribe. I create fun and allow myself to smile, laugh and create good vibes alone and in the company of my loved ones. I use my voice to strengthen and defend myself and those who are vulnerable.
I am never out of the fight. I adjust my methods if necessary, but I persevere with fortitude and grit. I keep the outcomes I want in front of me, never losing sight of the end I am pursuing. I constantly acquire new tools and use what is at my disposal to continue on my path. I not only endure in my own journey, I inspire others to do this with effective leadership.
I am dignified and capable. I stand out because I bring value everywhere I go. I obtain wisdom and live it. I behave in ways that are respected by the people I respect. I am purposeful in my appearance, language, and manner. I lead others. I choose to associate with people who help me level up.
