31 Days to Become a Better Man
I'm running Men of March for the last time
You read the headline right, I created 31 Days to Masculinity in March of 2017, and since then, thousands have taken the challenge on, and now, I’m ending my tenure as “point man” for these March community challenges.
This March will be my last time running a community campaign.
The program will challenge you in a way that no other challenge ever has, daily, from March 1st - 31st, 2023.
31 DtM is designed to help you where you need help; areas I have seen men experience extreme growth:
You decide where you need to focus or if a total overhaul is due - the men who’ve joined will be walking the same journey with you the entire time as we face the same daily challenges.
Why Care About Your Performance as a Man?
Some may ask, “What does it matter how I’m doing as a man?”, in our age of comfort, the question is not an unreasonable one; no sabertooth tigers are chasing our families, no band of murderous tribes running around, and technology is only making life safer.
But, in no way does societal advancement dictate our performance as men.
We were born to be free, strong, leaders, and capable of handling anything which comes our way. The fire that burned in the hearts of our ancestors still exists within us today. We may have to alter the delivery of that energy, but never should it be considered to snuff it out.
With the invention of “Toxic Masculinity” (it’s not real), we find the message being championed that men, and what makes us men, is unessential for modern living…
Until shit hits the fan.
That is what 31 DtM / Men of March offers, an audit of how prepared you are for the day shit hits the fan in your life; if one were to take the challenge on before disaster struck, it’d be seen that the program prevents many of the issues we see running rampant.
31DtM has helped men:
Offset health complications by addressing fitness.
Spare men from divorce by improving relationships.
It helps get finances headed in the right direction before stress over bills breaks them.
Instills the habit of situational awareness in men who may have never served in the military or been around the “prepper” community.
There are 31 bullet points I could drop, but I’ll end it here as the point is made; auditing your performance as a man is crucial because it allows you to see any weak areas that may have developed.
Test yourself with us in the program, or at the very least, start thinking about how you want to be viewed as a man, and start aligning habits with men who have the reputation you seek.
Masculinity is what you do, not what you claim; you must earn the respect that strong men command, and to do that, you must know what a strong man is, then become one. 31 Days to Masculinity dedicated one month to doing exactly that, and during those 31 days, I will, for the last time, be in the trenches with you sharing my journey all along.
BONUS PERK: One of my challenges for the month is to complete my next 31-day program, ‘31 Days of Sobriety’ and I’ll be offering the electronic copy free to every man competing in Men of March this year. Just another “Thank You” to the men who both support my work and program and appreciate other men who are as committed as I am to be my best self for me, my family, and my community.
