“Where did all the good men go?”


Dating profile: He must have dark hair, be over 6′ tall, fit, successful, have a reputable career, want kids, love to travel, live within 10 miles, and have lots of time for me. No I will not meet you for coffee. If I’m not worth dinner, don’t even bother. No cheap dates!

Same person: “Where did all the good men go?”

“He never listens to me.”


“He never listens to me.” “He’s not in tune with what I’m thinking.” “I never really know how he’s feeling.” “I just wish we could have a meaningful conversation.” “He’s bad at showing his emotions.” “He never lets me in.”

Same person: “I want a ‘real man’ (not a sensitive one).”

Stand up for what you believe to be true, but do it wisely

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

If you’re trying to win an argument by shouting, being nasty, or calling your opponent names, you’re not going to “win” the argument even if you’re right. And you will almost certainly ensure that your words will do little more than convince the person you’re arguing with of your ability to behave badly.

Be passionate & stand up for what you believe to be true, but do it wisely. Being an ass doesn’t make you right. And those who approve of how you make your argument are not people you need to convince of its validity.

Society is influenced by example

People are influenced by example. Years of bad behavior on reality TV, abusive internet comments, a focus on superficiality & fame, and a lack of ethics, logic, empathy & emotional intelligence in leadership roles have all played their part in giving people permission to imitate.

You will always be “right”

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

You will always be “right” according to yourself. But in believing everything you think without question, you leave no room to discover when you are wrong.

Never lose sight of the fact that not everything you believe is an accurate reflection of reality.

About your social media habits…

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

Are your SocialMedia habits encouraging more of what you would like to see in the world or are you simply sharing & encouraging things that add very little value to the world or supporting companies & celebrities only looking out for themselves & their fame or their investors?
