Question of the Week by The Brotherhood Of Men

Read Bryan Goodwin‘s answer to I have low self-esteem, short height, no talent, no skills, average intelligence, and bad social skills. What do I do? on Quora

How can you find happiness? Many people seem to think that they cant be happy. That is probably true. The reason they can’t find a way to be happy is because they dont know the recipe for happiness.

The Recipe

Now, this isn’t my recipe, and I didn’t get it from my grandmother or anything. I am not really sure who I got this from but I believe I heard this from Ryan Michler of Order of Man. Yet the recipe is sound. Because you get out of life what you put into it.

1 Part Discipline

Yeah, this is the hard part. You have to learn to hold off the short term success for the reward of being disciplined. Many times we want to reach for the cookie on the counter instead of going for the lower weight. Discipline is not always comfortable. Yet if you accept the discipline you will find that the discomfort isn’t that bad.

Holding off the short term reward for your long term gain will offer so many better skills for your life.

So Why Discipline? Because in real life order is needed. Look at those people who are actually lacking discipline or just want to live life on a whim. You see they really don’t get anywhere. Having discipline is like the rudder in your life. You are willing to do what is needed to get to your goals.

IF you are just floating along the river of life without a rudder you may get to where you are wanting but those chances are very very unlikely.

1 Part Purpose

You have to have drive. Having a purpose in doing something is the gas in your tank. You need to know why you are going after that particular goal. You need to see what that goal is and have a clear picture of what it will look like when you get there.

FInd you purpose and remind yourself daily on your why.

2 Parts Gratitude

This is the leavening agent for your life. Gratitude is what sets your mindset to the growth and Abundant mindsets. You are willing to try because you see that even when you fail you lare learning. You attitude is more positive and your life is no as hard. You can endure the discomfort of the discipline. When you have gratitude.

I like being able to help people find their "why" and achieve the personal freedom they desire. Besides writing for Relaxed Male I also am a life coach. By helping men find the leader that is found in each and every one of us. I do this by encouraging men to get outdoors and find the balance they are missing. Realize that they need to be in contact with the outside as often as they can. It is not only good for them but for their families and relationships.
