Men and women in today’s world have great challenges before them. Pretending that you don’t will only make them worse. To be successful you may have to SOAR above the mediocrity and games. When you’re looking for a relationship partner being willing to settle for intentional under achievers and people who do not have any idea how a real relationship is supposed to work, will make it difficult to be able to rise above mediocrity. One of those childish games includes pretending that successful relationships and successful careers that lead to fulfilling lives will just happen if you’re a good game player. You generally actually have to attain an education and/or skills and to expend some effort to make progress in life.
In life there are many times when a person will tell someone to man up or to be a man, or to be a REAL MAN. However in many instances, the definition of a real man is somewhat foggy these days. Many men in these times seem to have no idea what comprises the essence of a real man, and many women are confused as to what they should be looking for in a real man. Being a real man in reality has less to do with his physical appearance than the integrity and honor that drives them to say and do the things that they say and do. Being classified male at birth does not make a male a real man. How they live life day after day is how they earn that classification.
Women also must learn how to have realistic expectations regarding relationships, career choices, and how to meet many of the same challenges that men face in the real world. The real challenge for the women in the world is to not settle for anything less than what they are looking for in their friends or a partner for life. If there aren’t enough genuine grown ups to go around perhaps its time to start telling those who are immature long after when they should have attained some level of maturity, and those who underachieve for lack of trying, what they need to do to be upgraded to contenders. Being a real woman is equally important and it means more than knowing how to cook, how to wear clothes well, and making good hair and nail color choices, etc.
Men and women that want to have successful lives and successful relationships really have to stand up and be counted more now than ever. But don’t worry you can do it! Start with a plan, add a lot of common sense and determination and go ahead and Rise Above It and SOAR!
Until next time, have a warm heart but be COOL! Be happy, be well, and be the best you that you can be! If You Enjoyed This Post You Might Also Enjoy My Growing Collection of Wickedly Wise Inspiration Cards.
