I am going to start this article by making a statement that I feel that ALL women need to listen too.
"That women are to encourage men to be Masculine - who they really are and not who women think they should be. This means women ARE to back off, and let MEN find and redefine OUR MASCULINITY in this CHANGING World and BALANCE between the Sexes!"
And, for the men out there who have not got a clue who they are and what real women want and need, here goes my definition of Masculinity:
The Traits of a Masculine Man
TRUST in yourself, not only that you can do what you set out to do, and that you already are what you need to be (even if on the outside it does not yet show).
Everything begins with a thought... watch your thinking... there is a saying, it says, "as a man thinketh, so is he."
Becuase a masculine man is a confident man, even in the face of rejection and its aftermath so that it does not phase him and he moves on if necessary.
Are you a truly confident man has nothing to prove and in control of his life?
Becuase a masculine man is courageous (I am not talking about being willing to do stupid stunts, either), willing to do what is necessary without showing weakness (even if you are scared to death.)
A man cannot be truly courageous and brave if he does not fear something... if a woman is carrying on and wanting to pick a fight, do not back down and run away (and do not fight either.)
Because a woman is not a child, will you run out the door if a child were throwing a tantrum or would you stay and handle the situation?
Are you taking responsibility for what happens in your life and stop being a victim... being a victim is exactly what our society expects you to be... be who you really are intended to be - a leader and victor... make plans and carry them out... do not fear failure.
Someone once said, "If you show me a man who has never made a mistake, I'll show you a man who has never done anything."
Will you refuse to be a victim no matter what you encounter... consider yourself as a "warrior" and victor in all of life's curve balls that come your way... change your plans if necessary, take charge of your life and where it goes...learn from the battles lost and go on to win success.
