Tired of being a macho or being softy?
Tired of not understanding male and female energies?
Tired of having bad sex?
Tired of being afraid of … fill in the blank … ?
If you answered any of these questions with “yes”, you will love reading David Deida’s book “The Way of the Superior Man”.
David is known as one of the most influential teachers on the subjects of sex and spirituality.
Some think he is insightful — others feel he’s provocative.
Nevertheless, he offers eye opening and life changing lessons. That you might think, aren’t related to Entrepreneurship. But Entrepreneurship is as much about personal development as football is about shooting goals.
David Deida brings in another level of personal development for you. Let’s go through few of my favorite messages …

Know Your CURRENT Purpose in Life
For as long as you don’t know your purpose in life and align your life accordingly, you will always feel empty — regardless of being in a corporation, in a startup or doing freelance work.
Every moment waited is a moment wasted….
— David Deida
Most postponements are excuses. A man who really wants to do something won’t be stopped — neither by limited financial means nor his family duties.
Nothing Will be Achieved in the Future
Man believes that he will have achieved everything at some point in the future.
Men’s voices in their heads tell them: ‘If I only make this project successful then …’ or ‘If I only finish this marathon under three hours then’…
If you think that you will happier, healthier, richer when you only achieve this or that, you are wrong.
Nothing is ever achieved in the future.
Focus on NOW. What can you do right now? Read. Learn. Study. Make notes. Start a side project.
Most men make the error of thinking that one day it will be done. The masculine error is to think that eventually things will be different in some fundamental way. They won’t. It never ends. As long as life continues, the creative challenge is to tussle, play, and make love with the present moment while giving your unique gift.
— David Deida, Chapter 1
Learn About Your True Limits
The current limits of a man are not important. It is more important to live up to these limits instead of being lazy. Respect your limits that you face today. Be honest with yourself about your limits. And be brave to push your limits everyday.
Start today and leave your comfort zone. Start to live and never look back. Start to grow and you will give your gift back to the world. Sadly, very few people do this.
The fear of failure holds most men back.
What can you do? Accept your fear. It’s normal. Even Mike Tyson feared most fighters until he stepped into the ring:
I come out. I have supreme confidence but I’m scared to death. I’m totally afraid. I’m afraid of everything. I’m afraid of losing. I’m afraid of being humiliated. But I was totally confident.
All through my training I’ve been afraid of this man. I thought this man might be capable of beating me. I’ve dreamed of him beating me. I always stayed afraid of him. The closer I get to the ring I’m more confident. Once I’m in the ring, I’m a God! No-one can beat me.
— Mike Tyson
A man should fearlessly love and lead.
A man needs challenges and has to live his own personal truth.
A man faces his fears and seeks freedom.
A man lives a life of integrity and sticks to his values.
If you’re interested, feel free to watch Deida’s ‘Spirit Sex Love’ YouTube series. I found it super intriguing. Even though I painfully see myself in most situations that are described, I accept it and work on myself because I want to. Because I don’t accept my flaws.
What else can I do?
For sure, I will never surrender and accept things as they are. Instead, I prefer improving, and personally growing — step by step.
