Physically Demanding Challenges Make the Man
In a world where there is a crisis of fatherless homes, raising a boy into men is a challenge that nobody seems to want to take on. Society has become so ostracized because there seems to be a disproportionate ray of beaming light pointed at female-only issues.
For a long time, this perhaps made sense to the majority of people as subjects that involved female sexuality were taboo. However with the hammer firmly swinging one way now, it feels as though young boys are being left behind. It doesn’t matter what race you are if you’re male you’re going to be climbing uphill as you grow up.
More girls are going to university than boys, and more are graduating too. Women earn more money than men from their early twenties to early thirties and culture critics don’t seem to have an issue with that.
So have men forgotten how to be men? One of the things that have dropped over the years is the number of boy and men engaging in physical activity. The old sports and techniques seem to be failing so what new and exciting sports can men fall in love with?
Why do we as human beings like sports? The answer to this question is universal and yet complex. Psychologically we forget that we are human beings with incredible senses.
We may not be like the other predators in the world, but our minds are the ultimate weapon. Fortitude and the ability to be able to conquer everything we see has made us who we are. Physical hardship is in our blood. We have both endurance and remarkable strength that is locked inside of us.
Many don’t even know they possess such skills because everyday life has made us dormant. The Spartan Race has brought men back into contention with their physical attributes. It’s a gruelling race that pits you against mother nature. You engage in sprinting, cross country running, crawling through thick wet mud, jumping over obstacles and running up hills. You’re being timed and you’re pitted against other competitors.
You never really know what you’re made of until you are pushed to the limits; even greater when you push yourself to those limits.
Taking their ground
For some odd reason, we in modern society are taught that combat is something is we should avoid. We may not like it or agree with it but looking back at human history, those who have been adept at combat have allowed their people to survive and prosper. When we engage in tactical combat the hunting part of our mind comes alive.
No matter what we do in life whether it’s adorning a suit for work or lay on the couch eating pizza, we all have that hunting instinct painted in our mind. That’s why companies like Delta Force Paintballing Vancouver are gaining in popularity. For over 25 years that have been in business giving people the chance to test their battle skills against similarly skilled foes.
We are a tribal species and being together and facing hardships with your friends, can teach young boys how to be men.
We as men love physically challenging games, sports and activities. There’s nothing like the feeling of being in pristine physical condition and learning what our own bodies are capable of if we have a strong mind to command ourselves.
