As men we want to feel like a badass. We watch movies and wish we were more like the heroes we see on the screen.
They look good, they say the right thing, the move in the right way and they don’t get flustered. The great ones have that air of calmness…
then we remember how we act
and it’s nothing like that.
And we feel like failures as men.
And not young men at that.
If you’re like me, you’ve looked back at your life and your like, “What have I done with my life?” “Why haven’t I got my life together yet?” “It’s too late now.” “If I only knew then what I know now!”
Is It All Downhill From Here?
Men in their forties struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts. The studies tell us that suicide is the number one killer for men in this age range.
We feel like the best of life is over and now we’re on the downhill slope to death.
Does it have to be?
Are we destined to be a fatass over forty?
If we give up…
What if we choose not to give up?
What if we choose to step up our game?
What Does Badass In Your Forties Look Like?
There are three areas:
They’re all interlinked and affect each other.
Physically we look and feel good.
We have the right mindset. A mindset that allows us to move forward, deal with life’s challenges, and enjoy life. We’re focused on growing and being the best version of ourselves.
We’re aware of our emotions, we’re open to the different emotions that we feel, yet we don’t let them rule us. We don’t allow life to determine how we feel. We’re not swayed by the little ‘Annoyances’ of everyday life.
We know who we are, we’re confident in our abilities and we’re motivated to reaching our goals.
