The 50ish.org Middle-aged Lifestyles Index
The way a man lives his life is his lifestyle. If he’s of sound body and mind, it is his lifestyle choices that impact the way in which he feels and functions as a person. Sadly, a lot of middle-aged males tend to get stuck in a rut. Many a man feels he’s on the treadmill of a dreary life, with little or no hope of change any time soon. He dreams to be freed from the shackles of mere existence, yet his fear (False Evidence Appearing Real), is that he never will.

Men are Capable of so much more than they think they are.
Men are usually so much more capable of what their thoughts tell them, though not so many of us challenge our abilities be they perceived as probable or quite latent. Yet a tiny tweak in the thought process can literally give us a new and fulfilling change in what we do and how we comprehend our purpose and potential.
