Change is the essence of a mans life.

His life is a formulation of multiple layers, each being removed at a certain time when he is deemed ready on his internal clock.

These layers include birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and inevitably, demise.

You’ve probably heard the analogy of “going off the path” and the associated feelings and emotions about it.. some good, some bad.

I like to think of it as more of an intentionally unconscious diversion.. let me explain.

As a man progresses through his life, his interests will change. As to will his perspective of the world and the paradigm that he acts within with respect to the current ebb and flow of his existence. Where he gets his value from in terms of the tasks he undertakes shifts dramatically from year to year, decade to decade. That is the essence of growth and the aforementioned layers of his life.

We feel the intrinsic need to shed something, whether that be a job, a relationship, an object we’ve developed attachment too, a habit that is no longer benefiting us. It’s natural and beautiful, a scalping of the conscious masculine to reveal the seeds that were planted day by day.

This could be the shift away from a sedentary lifestyle and aimed towards on of proactive creation and pragmatism for the benefit of both you and the people around you.

We were meant to build and grow, callousing our minds and bodies with the work that we put forth into the world. Polarizing through our actions because we know that the only way forward is through the seas of trepidation.

You are the seed that is planted for which you will never lay under.

That’s the essence of a man; trial by fire, lessons by experience and wisdom by time.

Using each diversion away from the path as a tool in your kit to get further ahead towards the greatness that we can all aim to attain within our lifetime.
