Manage episode 247919961 series 2516289
In today’s world, we have so much information and knowledge at our fingertips but we don’t know how to manage it - and it’s affecting the lives of young people, especially men. What are some of the signals that we’ve moved into a dangerous spot in modern history? Why is it important to back our financial understanding with historical knowledge? On this exciting episode, I’m joined by Entrepreneur and Author of Hard Times Create Strong Men, Stefan Aarnio, who shares how we can empower ourselves in a world that’s trying to make us inherently weak.
Three Things We Learned
Religion is key to an empowered society
When you remove religion from society, you also remove the moral fabric that comes with it. Never in history have we been able to maintain ethical and moral stability without religion. Religion has been replaced with money, government entities and universities and now we have a pseudo-religion that’s destroying our society.
You can’t develop character without facing your demons
Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times. In order to become a man, you have to find your power, and then delve into darkness. In that darkness, you face your demons and in turn find your own ethical and moral compass.
When men get consumed by darkness, the worst traits emerge
Part of becoming a man is going through dark times and developing your character. The darkness shouldn’t be allowed to consume us. When men let the negativity consume them, that’s when they become addicts, gamblers, womanizers and abusers.
