How to Master Your Life: 40 Maxims for Men

master your life“Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think; and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.”

The maxims are designed to educate men about finding the importance and meaning of their lives, including how they must deal with them in real life to master and live the fullest.

As these maxims are short and easy-to-read, they express a general rule or a rule of conduct that every man must be educated with, at some point in his life.

Some of the maxims were originally derived from several sources and some are learned lessons of life. As the topic of mastering your life is far wider, these maxims do not cover the topic completely. But, enough to change one’s life, when followed. Any corrections, and/or more maxims will be added in the next update.


Develop your vision that benefits you and those in need. It must be the ultimate goal of your life. At some point in life every man finds it and works on it, until he dies. If you haven’t found one, you will find it. Until then, think of a way that benefits people and then re-do it.


Everything in your life is a game. Think about failures more than you dream about success/results. Plan all the way to the end and find all possible obstacles, consequences and twists that might reverse your hard work.


Time is the most valuable commodity. Always use it for something worthy. Neither waste yours, nor others. 


Thoroughly plan your steps and wait for the right time. Always seem patient as if you know that everything will come to you eventually. A man in a hurry is more likely to lose to a well-planned person.


Free time and comfort is the biggest enemy of success. The moment your struggle turns into comfort, your dreams will never become reality.


Repetition is the key to learning, knowledge, skill and finesse. Master your skills, like you own them. An outstanding skill set is made and maintained, not obtained. Practice and polish your knowledge and skills forever.


Don’t assume shit. Common sense is not that common. People are emotionally paralyzed, partially or fully. Nobody will do anything for you unless their benefit is involved.


Never argue with women. It is pointless. You will never win because you are more likely to make sense.


Avoid giving women responsibility that require leadership qualities. Leadership is not a female trait. Yet, they are excellent caretakers.


Learn to be more dominant over your woman. Women are not loyal to you, but your power. A real woman will submit herself to a highly dominant man.
