Bible Verses on Being a Man

Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

This Bible verse is an example of what’s happening right now. You came here looking for something. That something was on how to be a man.

I’m giving you my experience aka “iron sharpening iron”. You’re going to walk away from this article sharper than you are now.

Whether that be figuring out our vision, giving yourself permission, or making money on your own terms.

Every article here is will sharpen your iron.

When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.

1 Corinthians 13:11

Look around you and you see people in their 20’s and 30’s still acting like children. They focus on getting through the workday, drinking on their days off, and making enough money to pay their monthly bills.

In other words, they never took responsibility for their life. Instead, they let the world around them dictate their life.

That worked when you were 12 and maybe even 18, but it’s time to wake up. Open your eyes and realize it’s all on you.

You’re responsible for your place in life, your body, and your mind. No magic pill or life hack will take responsibility for you.

If you rely on a Magic Pill you’ll end up like my friend’s dad. And believe me, you don’t want to be like him.

He’s in his 60’s and has spent the last 40 years in and out of rehab. When all he had to do is take responsibility for himself and put in a little effort.

So man up in your life. Sit down and figure out what/why you’re doing what you’re doing. There’s no reason to go another day without knowing why you’re doing what you’re doing.

To get you started I’ll offer you a gift at the end of this article. It changed my life and I’m giving it to you for free.

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.

1 Corinthians 16:13-14

In a video, I made a while back I talked out taking joy in the process. Whether that be working your 9-5 as you build a side-hustle or whether that be hitting the gym.

I see so many people being careless and weak with the important stuff. The only time they get serious is when they want a new phone or when playing a video game.

Even I was like that at one point. I cared far more about enjoying myself than in manifesting my vision.

When I conducted business it was always with a weak and sloppy attempt.

Back in high school, I ran a computer repair business. I was so careless that I took 5 days to respond to a client.

Even worse I didn’t do my research on how to properly protect myself and set up my business pro from the go.

These issues ended up forcing me to close down that business. But you know what? I learned a lot from that experience.

I vowed to NEVER lose like that again. Now when I do anything I pay close attention to the details. When I make a decision I am firm.

And one Hell of a great time as I do it.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9

My longtime readers know that I’ve eaten a lot of shit to get where I am now. I’m talking being so broke that buying a gallon of water would ruin me.

I’ve had times where bills were due in 2 days and my account balance was only $24. Instead of giving up or getting scared, I worked.

Now I don’t have to worry about money.

The same will happen to you if you stand firm. No matter what you’re going through right now it’ll be over soon.

Look at it as a test. If you pass the test then you get whatever you want. But if you fail, well I don’t think you’d be reading this article.

The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him.

Psalms 37:23

The reason the concepts from Think and Go Hustle work is simple. By the end of the book, you are sure of what you’re doing.

You know what to do and why you’re doing it.

The only reason that you feel doubt and uncertainty is because you haven’t planted your feet on the ground fully.

Maybe you’ve put one foot down, but that’s not good enough. If you’re committed then you have to firmly put both feet down.

When you finally do this, things will start working for you. Opportunites will come and before long you’ll be in a different reality.

Do you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.

Proverbs 22:29

I get asked every week how I was able to work with Victor Pride and Ed Latimore before “making it”.

To finally give people closure I’ll tell you my answer. I focused on my craft for 3 years straight. I lost friends, gave up my girl, and experienced lonely nights.

With that kind of dedication, you can do the same. Because only the skillful man gets access to people like that.

I’ve got friends in the music business, Hollywood, and then nine to fivers. They all share a similar quality.

They focus on one craft and become the best.

So no matter what you do, be the best. That’s why it’s so crucial to create your script. That way you ensure that you’re working on what matters.

Otherwise, you’ll just waste your time away each day.

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

1 Peter 5:8-9 

Doubt, fear, and every other negative thing in your head want to destroy you. If you lack a firm plan backed up by faith, you don’t stand a chance.

Instead focus on confidence, love, and being assertive. With those kinds of thoughts and actions, nobody can stop you.

Also, don’t let yourself feel like you’re all alone because you aren’t. You’re surrounded by people just like you trying to make something of themselves.

My emails are always open to people on the Young Hustler Newsletter. Get signed up and look forward to weekly content that I don’t publish publicly.

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

James 1:6-8

Man back in the day I was tossed around like a rag doll. I never really sat down and thought about what I wanted.

I’d think about what I was eating for dinner or where I was taking my girl this weekend. But I never thought about how to think.

I didn’t have faith in myself and doubted myself in the simplest things. Even talking to customers caused me anxiety.

As I figured things out I was able to turn being introvert into something great. Being an introvert allowed me to become good at selling.

If I was able to do it, you can as well. Use these Bible verses on being a man. They are principles that have worked and will continue working.

Start training yourself to have faith in what you’re doing. It can be something as simple as walking your dog.

Start building up the thought process of faith. KNOW that you can walk your dog. Then apply that to every decision that you make.

THEN and ONLY THEN will you stop being tossed around by life. You will become the man that you want to be.
