The Bro Code: Bro, Man Up:
I’d like to start this off with a promise. I’m not going to bore you with another feel-good, pat-on-the-back book that gets tossed onto your wife’s nightstand. I don’t read them either. This is a conversation between you and me.
I wrote this for men, my Bros, in hopes of encouraging you to embrace your alpha manhood without having to worry about being attacked for it. Now, the truth is, we can do better. In some cases, much better, but until we know where we’ve been, there’s no way we’ll ever know where we’re going. Can we continue to crawl through the same daily grind?
There’s so much static these days about men, but I’m going to cut through the fog and not worry about being PC or stepping on toes. I can apologize later if that’s what it takes to keep you in the game, but for now, let’s set some ground rules for getting through the Bro Code Series.
The purpose is to encourage you to build the better man. Not that you aren’t freaking incredible the way you are, but let’s be honest, if there weren’t at least a few rough edges in your life, you wouldn’t be reading this.
And, if the Bro Code Series was given to you by someone as a “gift,” then maybe you haven’t noticed how rough your patches are. As for me, I’m still sanding down rough spots, and working to be that better man, so there’s zero judgment among Bros.
This is more like teamwork than telling you what to do. We men are stronger together anyways, right? The scope is simple. How do we go about building the better man?
“And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
Some Bros are happy to wake up and see that there’s not a police chalk line drawn around their body. They figure that they’ve lucked out another day, so why not get up and see what happens while they’re awake. There is so much more to life than merely getting by. We were created to be rulers, conquerors, kings and priests. It’s in God’s holy Word, and yeah, that’s kind of a big deal.
So, what do you say, let’s skip the grunting and get down to living the life we were meant to live.
