It’s the beginning of another week. Here’s a little encouragement even though you probably don’t need it.

 “Run It Again” is a scene from “Cinderella Man” in which the boxer James Braddock says succinctly why he is going to fight a man who may kill him in the ring.

In a very funny song, “Death of a Single Man” Brad Paisley gives us all a glimpse into what friends may think when a man marries.

And we can always use a perspective from John Wayne. In this clip from a movie late in his career—“True Grit”—we see what Rooster Cogburn has to say when he is accused of being a little too bold.

Go take on your life and take on the world. It needs you bold, authentic and masculine.
