A man goes through many tough times in his life, and I would like to know what keeps you guys going. Is it family? Is it perhaps the hope that someday things will be better?

For me personally, it is a deep driving desire to achieve something, to better myself, to raise the bar. Another thing that keeps me going is this friend I had when I was younger. He was a couple of years younger than me, and he used to look up to me, so yeah, I had to be a good role model. Now, a few years later, I still think of him and immediately stop slouching and get to work!

Thanks a million for your replies!

Cheers to life and manliness.
