Good day ladies and gentlemen. Had a bit of a setback with my video upload last night so guess I'm stepping on Tyler's posting day. RUH-ROH

Anyway, just got back from Edmonton where I had my first experience hooking up with twins, which was... interesting. These chicks actually CAME BACK to the bar to retrieve me after they had left, while I was in the middle of debriefing the students out on the street in front the club. So in the interest of showing the students what was possible, I pulled them back to their hotel. Judging by their facial expressions as I got into the backseat of the cab between the two genetically identical women, I believe expanded their horizons a bit. ha ha.

Anyway, here's my upcoming bootcamp schedule. Lots of Canada time with my friend and confidante Julien. Here we come...

<>==========================================<>

So today's video is on the topic of cultivating RESILIENCE. While there isn't an exact definition of this characteristic from a science standpoint, the best one I've heard describes it as "the ability to modulate and constructively harness the stress response."

This differs from MOTIVATION, another concept I did a video about not too long ago, in that it is more of a long-term thing, which determines how you will deal with the inevitable setbacks you're going to encounter as you go out and try to learn pickup. 

Some people will break, while others will soldier on in the face of this adversity and eventually break through their plateaus. Only to do it all over again, lol... but that's life. 

It's a long one, so grab your popcorn, or your gluten free kombucha, or whatever the fuck you cuddle up with on the couch, and let's get to it:




These are some actual practical things that anybody can do to increase their level of resilience and by extension their chance of succeeding and achieving a level of mastery in the game. 

By the way, the shirt I'm wearing in the video is of course a Heart of Beast shirt, it's actually our best seller, CRACK. 

Personally, I LOVE CRACK. Crack kills.

EXTERNAL RESOURCE OF THE WEEK:

Thought I'd join in on this bidness since all the other cool kids seem to be doing it... in the video I mentioned Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield who posts videos from the International Space Station. This guy is a fuckin cool motherfucker indeed.

Can you imagine this guy's game? "Hey let's go back to my room so I can show you my videos from outer space. Yeah, I'm an astronaut, no big deal..." lol. He's probably married but still... ASTRONAUT GAME.

Anyway, his channel is full of interesting shit, here's a cover he did of the David Bowie song "Space Oddity":



So cool. 

Anyway, cheers cunts, I'll see you in two weeks.

Yea, being called a creep and a loser by a cute girl really sucks, and the more you put yourself out there, the more it happens. There's a lot of mean, nasty dragons out there.

Edit : You've been called a "midget" ? How tall are you, I've had you at 5'11''. Hardly a midget ...

 This was a good watch, I was a looser this week. Only got one girl for the team, she's on vacayyy from Florida. I haven't hit it yet but I'm definitely working on figuring out why I haven't yet since she has only a week here. But no stress, it's not that serious.. Thanks Jeff

Hey I like this video! A book I've found good for determining whether your thoughts are realistic or not (through cognitive behavioural therapy) is "Feeling good: The new mood therapy". This book has practical exercises to do to force your brain to acknowledge reality and also makes you more able to observe when you are thinking any depressive or emotional thoughts.

 You pulled those twins in my home town. Makes me oddly proud. 
Glad you enjoyed Edmonton!
