Most men make the error of thinking that one day it will be done. They think, “if I can work enough, then one day I could rest.”Or, “One day my woman will understand something and she will stop complaining.”Or, “I’m only doing this now so that one day I can do what I really want in my life.”
The masculine error is to think that eventually things will be different in some fundamental way. They won’t. It never ends. As long as life continues, the creative challenge is to tussle, play, and make love with the present moment while giving your unique gift.
In David Deidas The Way of the Superior Man this is the first and I think the most important part to realize. We make up tons of thoughts. Crazy dreams but how many are actually real? Not many. You’d be shocked by the discovery that you don’t, or can’t do it; that in fact your fantasy of your future life is simply a fantasy. Most postponements are excuses for a lack of creative discipline.
About 80% of humanity would spend time on this someday isle. They lack the responsibility in living for them self by rather shoving needs and duties further away. Who stays on someday isle? Other someday people who constantly share excuses with one another. Often for an escape of pain or simply a lack of responsibility and discipline. They find comfort in simply existing, but are they really alive? No. They have no clear purpose whatsoever guiding their life. One action anyone could take whenever they find them self making excuses is by simply saying firmly to yourself “I am responsible!.” I’m responsible, cause no other is living “your” life.
So guys; I am responsible. Keep that in mind. Follow it up with immediate action. So take action starting now!
