I feel the need of a live rolemodel. When I was working out by myself, I thought I'm a monster until I went to the gym. Even in the gym, my lifting progress profile seems good when measuring myself up to my past until I see the guy next to me warming up with my max weight. All the authors of our sidebar books and the good posts here, talk about their experience as something we should aim for.
I'm in a spiritual retreat trip during Christmas. I listen to plenty of talks and I love how rolemodeling work. Even though some stories get out of context to fit some narratives, people do measure themselves up to these great (and ancient) figures. I also see how Red Pill Christians take Jesus as their role model, from their prospective, as an integrated man who builds society with utmost masculinity. But who do we measure ourselves to?
