What is Goblin Mode?
According to Oxford University Press (OUP), publishers behind the Oxford English Dictionary, the slang term refers to a type of behavior which is “unapologetically self-indulgent, lazy, slovenly, or greedy, typically in a way that rejects social norms or expectations” – traits that may have become familiar to many during lockdown.
Personal Development for Men
At Manlihood, we’re about helping men become better men. That means we focus a lot on personal development for men. We encourage men to help lift each other up, and challenge each other to become better. That’s truly how we defeat goblin mode.
You don’t want to be a goblin
Neither do I! We shouldn’t be content do descend into the laziest, sloppiest, most self-serving versions of ourselves. To break the cycle, we have to commit to a plan of personal development, and commit to relationships with other men who call us higher.
If you don’t want to be a goblin – and want to break out of goblin mode…
