Join the tribe: A thought on stoics and beards

We are emotional creatures; Stoicism isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
Join the tribe: A thought on stoics and beards

We are emotional creatures; Stoicism isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Most of us at Vainglory appreciate the stoic philosophers and their insights. We strive for patience, thoughtfulness, and intent in our actions. We like our beards because they reflect that. Beards are like our ideas: left untended they will only be wild and reflect our basest nature, but with care, grooming--small actions made every day--our forbearance yields great rewards.

What’s your place in the world?

If you’re feeling lost and confused about your life’s purpose, you’re not alone. We’ve been there. We know what it’s like to want something more for yourself in life, to aspire to be a part of something bigger than yourself, and to want to live with honor, humility, and determination. 

We’re looking for people who want to be a part of our tribe. 

It doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a crap-ton of hard work and discipline day in and day out. There will be many days when you want to quit. Don’t. Pushing through the hard times is what sets the men apart from the boys. Take it from us. We’re Veterans of the Special Forces, husbands, fathers, and people who’ve lived paycheck to paycheck working hard and thankless jobs with only dreams of a better life to keep us going. We’re humbled by the work people do every day, and mighty through our shared experiences. If you want to follow in these footsteps, it helps to learn from our experience and take action to get the results you’re dreaming of.

If having a badass beard is one of your goals, or even if it’s already one of your defining features, you’re in the right place. 

It takes just a few steps to go from good to great: mindset, discipline, dedication, and action.

Discipline, dedication, and action. Repeat, repeat, repeat

If you want to be better, faster, and stronger, you’re going to have to work hard. No one said it was going to be easy. Jocko Willink once said: “Discipline is the pathway to freedom.” Do you want to be good, or do you want to be great? What defines great men is unyielding perseverance, holding the line under pressure, and burying the ego.

If you’ve ever grown a beard, you know it takes patience, dedication, and discipline. Most men’s beards grow about ½ inch per month, so if you have a dream to have a long, full, beard, you might have to be patient. Now, you’re in luck. We can help you with this process. Using our beard clay is a great way to strengthen your hairs, get rid of fungus and bacteria, and moisturize your skin while not creating acne-producing oil.
