Yoooooo!!!

So I'm out in Santa Barbara with Owen and Todd attending Dr. Don Beck's Sprial Dynamics course.  

It's pretty killer, and the content will definitely have a direct impact on my teaching methodology, although most people probably won't notice...  

...seriously, there are all sorts of underlying subtleties in his teachings.  Really cool shit.

Anyway, covering a little bit of that in today's video, I want to talk about WHY people beat themselves up, are hard on themselves, fall into perfectionism challenges, and ultimately fall into periods of inspriation, followed by the same old cycles of biting off more than you can chew, and then repeating that cycle ad nauseum.

The sad part is, that the whole concept of beating yourself up, or being hard on yourself comes from a really positive outlook on things, and can help you achieve more in the long run...

...which is crazy, because it's so counter intuitive.

So check out the vid to see why beating yourself up is actually good here --- >



I mean, it's GOOD to expect more of yourself, and it's GOOD (at times) to strive for perfection...

But you have to learn how the importance of building long term confidence, and baby stepping your way towards reaching your dreams.

Again, I've been really inspired by my time out here at this event, and love how the concepts are already affecting my own content, which you can see in this week's vid.

So check it out, and let me know what you think!

And as always.........

Enjoy!

this great...my whole way of learning game was trying to take the basics to their logical conclusion...i.e continuos improvment, results tend to come not from going straight after them but more from the web of 1 % improvements you make over time which they kind of just fall into.

think of it this way the bigger the spiders web the more chance of it getting bugs...but if it hunts for individual bugs it will probably not get shit for a long time and end up spending far too much energy on it.....so improve what you can let go of what you can't consistently.

kaizen mofos!

Excellent video, Brad, thanks.

Easing into has definitely been a good approach for me, and as you build momentum things get rather crazy (in a positive way).

Being a "good guy" or what we usually call a good guy, the biggest issue is definitely just forgiving yourself, when you really fuck up real big. And surprisingly enough, you find that your life improves a lot from that point on

By far one of the most important concepts RSD has ever addressed. Took me about 7.5 years to figure this shit out and it was probably the biggest thing holding me back as far as not getting pissed off about external results ( the ups and downs),

The key to success is long term conssitent progress and action. But with pickup there is so much ego and identity involved. It's not like basketball or some sport. Your results are reflective in some ways of who you are as a man so it's supre crucial to constantly be monitoring the way to reward or punish or motivate yourself in your own head.  

You have to even go so far as to reward yourself mentally for the fact that you are rewarding yourself for any small victory, and to reward yourself for taking any form of right action even if you felt like the day was wasted but it was out of your control why. So all this mental monitoring wa alwys the biggest roadblock for me to be able to stay consistent and shuld really be analyzed and addressed above anything else ( including game itself) since you cant even game if you are in the house beating yourself up.  Thanks for posting.

Love this Brad. Great stuff.

I think it's a bit like with chicks. Desire without attachment. You gotta want it all but not care at all if it doesn't happen.

Same with your life goals. You have to want it all right now, but not care at all if you don't get them.

Always glad to see Brad videos posted.

Will Smith says it well:
"You don't set out to build a wall.  You don't say, 'I'm gonna build the biggest, baddest wall, that's ever been built.  You don't start there.  You say, 'I'm gonna lay this brick, as perfectly as a brick can be laid.'  And you do that every single day, AND SOON YOU HAVE A WALL!!!"

Yup, that was main sticking point and gain from Ozzie bootcamp... It also plays into the moving from "result oriented paradigm" to the "challenge oriented paradigm" :) peace
