Some Real Machistas!
The 13 tenets of machismo. The other day I wrote an article about the virtues of machismo in it I explained how a young man can benefit learning from the virtues of machismo.
Machismo today gets a lot of negative press because it is used as an excuse for spousal abuse. In reality though Machismo is nothing of the sort. A man who puts his hands on a woman just because he can is not what machismo represents. Machismo is more of a way for a young man to live his life. It helps him how to act, live, love and respect himself as well as others.
Machismo ran rampart during the old south where being a gentlemen was something every man was aspiring to be. Men knew what to do and what was expected of them every day. They followed a set of rules which dictated how a man should behave while going about his business. At times a gentleman might have had his honor tarnished by another man. Then the matter would have been handled between the two of them as civilized people should. Unfortunately though that was not always the case when this happened violence was at times the only way for a man to renew his honor. Hence the dueling with pistols came about as a way to end the issue. Who ever was standing was the winner and the loser will most times be carried out.
Here are the tenets 13 of machismo
1. Always hold God in high regard
A man needs to have some faith in something far greater than himself. In that way he can feel that he is never alone in the world. He could be able to push himself further into the unknown. Hold ing God in high regard will help you overcome obstacles which will be in your way to achieving a fulfilling life
2. Honor yourself and your family
By honoring yourself and your family can give a man the purpose the fire to push him continuously to achieve the goals he is setting out to achieve. Keeping honor in your family shows that you are a man with values and morals. A man with no honor is a man that has no reason to live his life. This rule should be held in high regard and be put in the same place as rule 1 above.
3. Provide for your family
Gentlemen I cannot stress this enough! If you have a family you will need to step up t the challenge and provide for them. That means getting a job or starting your own business it’s means that you are solely responsible to make sure you bring that money to the house. Work hard and succeed and your family will love you for it
4. Be the leader of your family
Again this goes hand in hand with rule 3 as a man you will have to take the helm and lead your family to success. Teach them the differences of right and wrong. Make them understand the essence of hard work and persistence as well as responsibility. All children regardless need a male authority figure in their lives to show them those differences.
5. Always walk with self confidence no matter what!
Self confidence in yourself can help a man keep calm in the face of danger. Self confidence can move mountains even though the job may be dangerous he goes forth and conquers. The world is your oyster when you have self confidence.
6. Be a productive member of society
In these modern times everyone is showing everyone else that they are being productive. In reality they are just keeping a facade an image of productiveness. To be productive you must actually be doing something that is productive for you and not for someone else. By being productive I mean like starting a business, writing a book, building a house etc. anyone can shuffle paper around and say that they are productive but are they really? Everyone is so productive but in the end when they die they will be forgotten because they have not left anything tangible while being productive.
7. Always try to find the positive in everything you do.
Trying to keep positive is a hard thing to do these days being that there is so much distractions and negativity everywhere you look can make a man cynical. You must always find the positive no matter how bad your situation is sooner or later you will over come it and move on. You have to tell yourself that you can make it and never give up. Most people crack in the face of adversity and become negative they fail to reach deep inside and find that positive thing.
8. Keep yourself healthy, fit and well groomed at all times
Keeping yourself on top of the game requires for the man to keep himself in shape. A well dressed man will attract more women than a man who is not well dressed. A man should be able to wear men’s clothing and not clothing your son should be wearing. The clothes should be stylish and comfortable. Hair cut and combed face shaved. Please if you are going to wear a hat do not wear a baseball cap unless you are working in the sun or the work that you do requires it that you wear it. Other than that baseball caps are a no no. Showing your underwear in public is a prison thing. Which is the style for these young men. A real man does not dress like that and if he does he does not merit your respect. He is a child inside an adult body. He will shirk responsibility and still thinks he deserves respect.
Never ever be this type of man. A well dressed, fit and healthy man will get the respect he needs to go through life and become successful while doing it. Saggy jeans is just a message that shouts how immature he is.
9. When you give your word to someone always deliver
When you give your word to someone you are promising that you are going to deliver on what you promised them. Unfortunately this is another issue that has been destroyed in these modern times. Many people can give their word but only a very few people can deliver. A man who give his word should always deliver no matter what. This was how people did business before contracts they gave their word and shook hands. A man who delivers on his word will be highly regarded as a man with morals an upstanding man who lives his life justly and righteously.
Every man should be very careful on how he is promising. If he can deliver then by all means deliver but if you cannot the you will not go ahead and give your word. If you do not deliver the other person will look at you with distrust and will never ask you for anything else or even take you seriously.
10. Teach younger men on the ways of Machismo\Alphaness
It is the responsibility of every man to teach the ways of machismo to his son or another. Machismo teaches the young man how to live act and be a man. The younger man will begin to understand as he gets older why Machismo is so important in the lives of men. By following the ways of Machismo he will begin to understand why women act the way they do and how to deal with them.
Machismo will give your young man self confidence something that is lacking in many young men today. A confident young man who is versed well in Machismo will be able to better himself and those he loves. Society has been trying to destroy men taking everything away and giving it tot he female. We must stop ignoring and begin to disrupt this way of thinking. Learning machismo can prevent a man from being a white knight and living his life on his knees in the shadow of the female.
We must teach them Machismo which is a form of being an Alpha male.
11. The only women that matter in your life is your mother, your wife and your daughters
The three women in your life that matters most to a Machista is his mother, his wife and his daughter. A Machista is bound by the machismo code to honor them and not treat them like every other woman in his life. These three are to be respected which means no physical abuse what so ever.
The other women in his life should be viewed with carefulness. Remember women are emotional beings that are bound to their emotions. Because of this they become irrational when something doesn’t go their way. You should view them with distrust as they will try to take away your machismo saying that it is not relevant to think that way. Do not believe them this brings me to the next rule.
12. Never give away your power to a woman
A woman has the power to weaken any man they decide to be with. At first they will mesmerize you with their words and sexual feats. Little by little they begin to break you down without you realizing what is happening. Like mermaids who sing their songs and lure weary sailors to their deaths. By the time you wake up she has already sunk her tentacles deep inside of you and you find yourself on your knees powerless!
It takes a long time for a man to come back to his senses. Very few are able to take back control most just never get off their knees. Which is why never lose focus of your power because she will try to take it and keep it for themselves until you are all drained out and another man takes your place.
Power is these essence of machismo
13. Be diplomatic in resolving negative matters. Violence should only be used as a last resort.
Resolving negative matters which will come up in a mans life must be handled diplomatically. That being said a man must be able to sit down with the agitator and talk out and resolve their issue with one another. If you cannot come to terms the first time you must try again if that does not work you must try a third time and if the third time the issue has not been resolved then the man will need to resort to violence to get the message across to the other.
Back in the old south if a gentleman had a matter with another Gentleman and could not resolve the issue they have between each other then they will have to duel each other. That meant both gentlemen would agree to a pistol duel so that the issue is resolved. In the end whoever was left standing was the one who won and resolved the matter. While the loser is carried out.
Violence should not be used in the beginning and only should be seen as a last resort when all other causes are exhausted. Unfortunately sometimes it takes something like violence to end the squabble two gentlemen were having at the time. Death is the great equalizer
And there you have it! The 13 tenets of machismo. I do hope that you read it and it makes you think about other codes that we as men should live by. Remember machismo is a form of alphaness and should be something we should all try to adopt as it will benefit us in the long run in taking back our power from this feminized society.
Lets bring back these young men back to the fold!
