Finally I’ve sat down after a few days of resting and letting the events of Ozzies bootcamp settle down, and sort them selves out in my head.

For the past week things have been brewing in my head, and I’ve been writing and recording notes constantly, I can say it was probably the best weekend of my life.

Im just going to unload my thoughts on you guys first then Im quickly gonna go onto what happened each day of the Bootcamp,

Foreword

In just 3 days, Ozzie has taught me so much, and helped me learn a lot about myself. When I came to the bootcamp I was expecting something big, but nothing like this, no amount of time spent reading or watching theory on this stuff can teach you what I learnt on my bootcamp!

Funny thing is I keep flactuating from anxiety to excitement for some reason, I think its all just part of my mind rearranging itself, I’ve had this experience before when I’ve learnt something that hit my core, Id get really happy, but then depressed the in about 5 minutes, happy again! I guess its just the way I learn and process Information, I believe Ozzie has helped me knock some walls down!

Monday and Tuesday I was really Happy I think the state I built up over the Bootcamp carried over. Today is Wednesday and Im fluctuating between, Happy and sad, lol, weird, but I kind of like the feeling when I go from sad to happy!!!

Im experiencing a lot of anxiety actually, its a bitch, my mind has been mainly focused on things Im concerned about:

One of the things Ozzie taught me is that everyone has a circle of concern and circle of influence:

the circle of concern always stays the same size, and the circle of influence although smaller than the circle of concern can be made to get bigger or smaller, the more you think about things that concern you i.e:

“Oh man I gotta go out tomorrow night, what if the club is expensive, what if they don’t let me in, what if people think Im weird for hanging out at a club alone on a thursday night talking to random people”,

the smaller your circle of influence gets, and your circle of concern takes over,

but if you start thinking of things you can influence i.e:

“Im gonna go out tomorrow no matter what, I can find a free night club, I can find a backup club just incase, I will approach as many people as possible tonight, I will go for a makeup your circle of influence gets bigger.

Your circle of influence gets stronger, and bigger...

Im only now starting to properly understand this Concern and Influence theory!


Now Im going to write Day by day as it will be easier to sort my notes, and let you guys know what happened each day...

Its a long one, so it might be advisable to make a cup of coffee first...

Day 1

I met Ozzie at a hotel, It was just me, no other students booked this particular weekend, I felt quite lucky because Ozzie could concentrate his focus entirely onto me,
but I was also looking forward to meeting a couple guys in my position as well, to have a kind of support throughout the bootcamp, but hey, I had Ozzie all to myself, without distractions, I was not complaining.

We talked for a while, and then we proceeded to talking about my history in this game, and he figured out a custom plan for the weekend for me, as I had not really gone out 2 months prior to my bootcamp and a nother 6 months prior to that! He said he would treat me like a newbie, and that I should forget everything I know about pickup, I was glad he was starting with me like a newbie.

He asked about my anxieties, and fears and stuff like that, and goes on to tell me what’s going to happen during the weekend .

He forbids me to use certain negative words and tells me that if I want this to be a success, I have to give it my all, this was not going to be a problem for me over the next 3 days, as I’ve been working towards reaching certain goals and achieving the best i possibly can for myself, I have built a belief for myself of “I can achieve anything I set my mind to” and I wouldn't have taken the bootcamp otherwise, which actually helped me a lot in understanding and taking on a lot of the concepts he showed me, I took his word for everything he said, which made my bootcamp extra worthwhile, when he told me to go into a set, I did, when he told me to shake my ass at girls and wait for my ass to be slapped, I did not hesitate, I had 3 days with Ozzie and I had to absorb as much info as he was going to teach me as I could, I had no time, for chodiness, laziness, doubt, I was investing my time and his, and I did not want to waste either of our times!

He tells me about learning patterns, and as soon as he mentions Dabbler, I know thats me, I point it out, yup thats me, and the funny thing is, since I’ve figured that out, I’ve found myself dabbling in everything, and I think part of my anxiety in this part of my life is due to dabbling!

We grab a cab to the club where we have some food and talk some more, he talks about the two circles I mentioned earlier (Concern/ and Influence) and that you have to be proactive and consciously choose what to focus on; things like positivity, gratitude, seeing the best in others, being nice to people, without being the nice guy,

and he was being consciously proactive with the waiters and staff...

He asked me to walk through the club, once in a self-conscious way where I was constantly in my head (negative),

and the second one was in a confident way, where I was confidently walking through the club.

It was to show me how my mind thinks in these two situations, when you are in your head, negative thoughts are going through your head, when you are in a positive mode, nothing is going through your head, except directions, like, whats in that room, curiosity...


You have to be self approving instead of seeking approval from others. Whether someone likes you or not should not make a difference for you.

Do not be outcome dependent, do not open sets with an outcome in your mind.

It has to be win/win when you go into a set, where you are not going in to talk to people to take anything from them or give anything to them, you just have to be happy, indifferent.

He asked me some embarrassing things I would never consider telling someone I just met, my main thing was “I am 23 years old and I still Live with my parents”, he wanted me to say this so I could see that it doesn't matter what you say when you talk to people, along as you are not seeking to take value.
Going in embarrassing almost puts you in a little state, because you relise it doesn’t matter what you say, they dont give a shit, and once you relise, and start going in without any raction or emotion to your embarrassing opener, they relise this and are attracted to you...

My biggest realization was, when I approached a couple of hot blonds, the hottest girls in the club, in my opinion anyway, I said “Hi, Im Goran, Im 23 and I still live with my parents!” they burst out laughing, I showed no reaction to their laughing, one girl got some laugh spit on me accidentally, I just run my hand across my face with a expression of, well that was nasty... lol,
Ozzie came over, and I left the girls sat down to talk to him, all of a sudden one of the girls started poking me and turned arround like you would in school when you like someone, lol, immediately I turned round, grabbed her and pulled her into my lap, really aggressive, her boyfriend got a bit defensive, and Ozzie told me to let her go, as they are regulars, and he doesn't want the bouncers too ruin our night, cos theyre a bit sensitive, lol, so I stood her up, and let her go...

I had a problem with opening sets with guys or “girls I was not attracted to”, I felt like, I was wasting their time talking to them, they wont get anything from me, when they could be talking to someone that is attracted to them, I wont get anything from them, I felt like I was talking to them just to get in to state, I was coming from a frame of Lose/Lose, where both of us weren't having any fun, and it wash showing from me and from her...

This was my main problem, I was going into some sets half heartedly, but I was also stalling out of sets quickly out of boredom, my dabbling was getting the better of me.

Ozzie was telling me, you have to talk to the unatraactive girls in a win/win frame as well, because they might have hot friends, round the corner you never know.

The whole night was an uphill struggle for me, at points I just wanted to run away, and hide, I felt drained, but I kept fighting on, I was not going to give up, my dabbling was not gonna take over!

Near the end of the night,Ozzie sent me into a set where I started talking to this girl I was not at all attracted to, I think I finally hit win/win, i did not care, I was having fun with her, a male friend of hers came over, i introduced myself to him, and he started telling me, shes free you can have her man, its cool.

I was like, wow, what the hell, you just handing over the girl to me.

Ah well I was not attracted to her, so I started talking to the rest of her group, at one point a cut girl walked into the set, and I started chatting with her, her friends kept pushing her onto me, literally from behind they would shove her into my arms...

We started chatting and dancing, and at one point Ozzie stepped behind her and was telling me to kiss her! We made out a bit, and then it was time to go, I couldve stayed with her, and taken her home, but Ozzie told me before hand, I have a choice, I could stay with any girl I picked up, or I could go debrief with him. I got her number and Ozzie and I left, I felt it was better to debrief with Ozzie while the night was still fresh, plus I was not really bothered weather I picked up a girl or not, this bootcamp was not about sex for me, but more about self actualization, and getting the freedom to talk to strangers without anxiety, and teaching myself this is possible, I can do this...

I still haven't called the girl, or sent her my number, I dont know why, its like I dont really care to?


We went to a sandwich bar kind of place that was luckily open not far from the club and debriefed.


Conclusion of day 1:

I had so many epiphanies on this day, it was not the best night speaking of game, I only got into state near the end, but it was excellent in a experience and learning point of view, I had a lot of epiphanies, but Im only gonna name a few major ones:


-Do not be outcome dependant

-Dont be aproval seeking

-Weather a negative or possitive response, do not let it affect you, treat negative responses indifferently to positive ones, they are the same to you, and keep going.

-Do not procrastinate between sets, go into a nother emediately, or your willingness will decrease and you will loose state.

-Talk to all people weather attractive or unatractive, in a win/win mentality,

-Do not try to impress the girls or say things that will give you positive reactions, say things for your own fun, weather they respond positively or negatively id does not matter! (hence the reason for the embarrassing opener at the beginning)

-Try get to the point where you dont care, where you just talk without caring what other people think.

- always be apreciative to other people without expecting the same in return, always be happy towards people dont expect them to be happy back, dont give vaue purposfully to take it, dont give value expecting an outcome, do it because you are a happy person!




Day 2


I met Ozzie at around 2pm, we walked around a bit and talked, finally we found a quite coffee place, and he went on to talk about some things that happened last night, we talked some more about the concepts I mentioned perviously, but also some more about trying to make yourself consciously think happy thoughts, hit the happy part of your brain, because most people are used to thinking negative, and their brain gets addicted to those neurons turned on and thats what it makes you want to do, by consciously thinking positive and being nice, you can activate the happy part and try to get your brain addicted to the happy neurones being turned on!

For every situation you have a stimulus > your response> which can either be Reactive or proactive...

If you are driving to work, and there is a trafic jam (stimulus), you can either get angry(response) which is reactive,

or you can relax, and listen to music, or an audio book and enjoy it which is proactive!

Ozzie got me to do an exercise to discover my social self and my true self,

Socail self is the self you project to people in social environments when you are affraid of showing your true self, where you think your true self is not good enough, will get ridiculed.

what I discovered was that my social self tries to put on a cool guy attitude, and tries to act like nothing affects him, but he puts up shields to protect me from everything around me.

While my real self, dreams of freedom, being happy, wants to break free, and achieve the things I want in life, my social self is holding my true self back.

We stepped out of the Cafe to do some social preassure exercises, Ozzie got me to say embarassing things in a bussy square out loud so people would look at me,

Before we started I was shaking, it was scary, even before we started in the cafe my fear was building up, it was like oh crap im gonna have to humiliate my self...

But the funny thing was, once you start doing it, you kind of relise that its ok, you wont get hurt, or injured noone cares, so i started shouting louder, at one point i got up onto kind of like a podium in the middle of the square, so i was aboe everyone shouting at Ozzie

“Im 23 years old and I still live with my parents, Im a self help geek, Im doing this to try to get rid of my fear, its crazy” I felt exhilarated, I had all this adrenaline pumping through me, it was so fun, people were looking and and I didn't give a shit, I kind of looked through the people like they weren't there, i could see them staring at me but I ignored it.

At one point when I was on the podium this girl sitting next to me was like, wow thats cool can I record you, I was like yeah why not! Just don t put it on youtube... lol

So she was recording me doing this stuff, and she got up with me and we were being stupid together, I asked her who she was, we talked a it, she was an, MTV presenter, I don’t watch mtv that much so i didn’t recognize her... Ozzie thought that was enough for the moment I didn't care about anything around me I was in he zone, so he came and pulled me out to do some more exercises, as I was leaving the girl shouted behind me “Hey that was really cool, Im gonna put this on MTV” Ozzie laughed, and was like, oh man thats gonna your social self... It was cool.

We went on to do some more exercises, we walked across the street from each other, and talked, he asked me to tell him embarrassing stories, and kept asking what my confort level was from 1-10, we done this for a bout half an hour, he then took me to an underground station where I had to run up and down the escalator talking to girls, first on the same escalator, then on parallel escalators going the same way, this was probably harder for some reason than actually being silly on the street, because I felt I was bothering people, I was in the mode of taking value, eventually, it got easier until the point where I was talking to this girl who was carrying a plant, we had a funny conversation, I think she could feel that I was in the zone, as she was happy to talk to me, the whole time I was walking up to people asking if trafalgar square is a real square, ( my thaughts on this, its like a big roundabout, why is it called a Square in the first place?)

This exercise was to do with relising that rejection was ok, even if I hit it off with someone I would end up loosing them at the end of an escelator, it was like a loosing game...
actually a lot of the exercises were about its ok to get rejected, as i think that was my sticking point, and probably many guys too.

We parted, and met up in the evening again.




We met outside a club, where we went in and had dinner, Ozzie was being consciously friendly to the staff agin, and they were being really nice to us, I was trying to be consciously friendly as well, which is pretty cool!

We had dinner, talked and chilled a bit, then it was time to go into the club, It started off quite rough, I was in my head again, the first few sets were quite tough for me, I felt like I was bohering people, (why would they want to know me?), Ozzie kept saying, dont be in your head, you are carin g to much if you cant find anything to say, the first 4 sets didnt go to well for me, I was getting more anxious at this point, so he made me go into groups, say embarrassing thing and just shut up and make them cary on the convo, i think the first set I went inot I freaked the girls out, lol. He was telling me, you cant care man, every set I went into if i went back they would be happy to see me, would any of your sets...

We walked into a nother room, and he said, I want you to make friends with the whole room,

Which was like a switch to me, I was not thinking “game” anymore, I was just thinking, make friends with people, be nice, high five people, it started a bit rough but I didnt care, I kept going through making friends, I must have walked up to everyone in the room, some people didnt care, some were cool, I was re-approaching old sets and they were cool to see me, I was talking with the bartenders, and high fiving the girls behind the bar, I was only drinking water, and the girls immediately knew what to get me when I came to the bar, lol.

I was talking to unattractive girls, attractive girls, guys all the same, it didn't matter to me, it was all good!

I was leaving sets early though, my dabbling personality was kicking in, when I got bored I felt it was time to leave and go to another set...

Ozzie thought it was enough and was like, ok u dont care what people think any more, we are going to embarrass you now, we went down to a really loud room, and he was like, ok i want you to go and shake your ass to the girls until they start slapping your ass, I was like, sure, I went in, and the first group did nothing, Ozzie was like, cool, go to that group, so I did, and they started slapping my ass, it was like alright, I did one more group where I got a slap on the butt, and I think I experienced proper state at that point...

He took me up to another room and started sending me into sets, at this point it was all easy, the night became a blur, I was just walking up to sets, I was still dabling and not sticking to sets, but I was having fun, at one point I highfived a girl but missed and hit a nother girl in the head, she turned around and was like woooooo, so i merged into their set...


At one point I decided to stop talking and just opened sets, by standing there, and sticking my tongue out, High Five!!! lol

This was the most profound thing for me, I did not have to say anything, people were just opening to you, if they reacted negative at first, you just stick in there like you don’t care and they start getting happy and messing with you.

at one point some girls wouldn't give me their names, so I just named them Eric 1, Eric 2 and Eric 3, and they were loving it, and started competing for Eric 1 position, lol, Im better than her I want to be Eric 1, lol.


Ozzie told me you are really hyper now, its easy for you, there is no scale of confort for yopu now, but I want you to enter some quite sets melow seated, I found it so easy to go from hyper to mellow, it was not problem, Id just sit down stare and point at the girls, or stick my tongue out, at some sets I was able to get them from a drainded tired mood, to high mood like me, it was fun... but i was able to go melow, and have nice quiet conversations as well...

I relised at the end of the night I couldve gotten so m any makeouts, numbers even more, if I just stuck to my sets, or went for kisses, I gotta sort out my dabeling.

The funniest thing to me, was while Ozzie was talking to me, i saw a hottie over his shoulder, and my eyes were fixated on her, he laughed and said “go”. I approached I didn't know what to do, so I gave her the look of, YES, I pointed at her, and said “You, I want to get to know you”. I leaned over and I said to her friend girl 2, I want to make friends with your friend, she was like, ok, I walked to girl 1 and made her move over over on her seat, we flirted a bit I was being physical, (should've gone for the kiss), I had my hand on her lap holding her thing at one point,girl 2 sat next to me, and I started flirting with her as well, and hugging her with my left hand while still holding girl 1, I was trying to make girl 1 kiss me, I can remember what happened, but it was all fun, I left the set and Ozzie sent me into some more.

At one point I was talking to some foreign girls that I could not understand so I got bored and left, I turned arround to where Ozzie was sitting, and instead of Ozzie there were two hot girls in his place, I was like, sweet, so I went to approach them, then ozzie shouted at me,

“Hey man, those are my friends girls” I stud up and met two of Ozzies, former students, one from a year ago, hes the one with the girls I was chatting to, and I said “I had no idea they were with you” he was like “no sweat man, go talk to them if you want”, he was really chilled and didn't really care, total abundance mentality, if anyhitng happened he could get 10 more if he wanted to, and ozzie was like, see hes got abundance, thats what you should get, where you know it doesn't matter if you get rejected, cos there are 200 more girls in the club!

His other student was really chilled, Ozzie stopped me while he was in a seated set with 4 girls, and pointed out his body language, “look at that, hes totally chilled hes got all four girls mesmerized, and he only had his bootcamp 3 months ago”!


Anyway we went on and I approached a bunch more sets, and it was time to go do some debriefing...

Conclusion of day 2:



-The only reason you start to worry about things is when you think about them, and thats when negative thoughts creep in, and you start worrying about things you cannot control, your circle of concern gets bigger.

-You have to think about your circle of influence, for every concern there are atlas 3 things you can influence around it.

-You have to make your own state, make your own fun not use other people to get you there by seeking approval,

-Dont care, dont care what people think of you, talk to people without nothing affecting you, (dont let anything affect you)

-The best way to get state is to challenge your social self, to freak him out, until he breaks and allows your inner self to come out,

-The stronger you feel your social self holding you back, the quicker you will get into state.


I had many more epiphanies, but a lot of it was Imbedding of what Ozzie taught me on day1,




Day 3


We met up at 2pm again, and went straight to a coffee shop, we chilled a bit, then went into talks about the previous two days, and we threw some ideas back and forth, it was quite a fun convo... nothing heavy just understanding, Ozzie was saing he also loved the bootcamps because as much as we learn he also learns stuff as well, which in my opinion is what Life is all about, you always have to challenge and expect change in yourself.

When we left the coffee shop, he gave me some vocal and social pressure exercises, which were quite funny, we were standing on opposite sides of the road, breathing in and trying to talk really loud using our diaphragm to push air out not our lungs, people were giving us funny looks, whenever I got self conscious my voice would fluctuate or change, it was funny...


We carried on with this, walking on opposite sides of the road to each other, and talking loud, and at one point he asked me to show him how I shook my ass at girls in the club, lol.

He entered a set of girls, and I didn't catch on immediately, but i snapped back into it, and approached them with my diaphragm voice,

The diaphragm voice is one of strength, one where you aren’t seeking a reaction, you are just talking, the girls got into it immediately.

He made me walk up to one girl that was sitting on a platform a bout 2 meters above me, with that voice, she was sitting with a bunch of guys, I shouted at her, she immediately took of her headphones, all the guys went quiet almost in respect, I asked a few questions, but she was italian and didnt understand me, she was like, “non capire” (or something italian for I dont understand) she looked like she was upset she could not understand me, lol.

Ozzie sent me into a nother seated set, I went in with diaphram voice, is trafalgar square a real square...  "were we don’t know', I asked where they were from, (always in diaphram voice), and we really had an awesome conversation, they were italian, they were so into what I had to say to them, they took out their dictionary so they could speak to me properly, the girl was like, “no wait wait, I get my dictionary”! We were really having fun, we were flirting, Ozzie came over we all talked a little, and we had to go, and they started hugging and giving us kisses, like you would with family members, I mean they are italians but you don’t usually hug and kiss people you met only 10 minutes ago... lol...


We walked and talked for a while, he told me that was a rally good interaction because when he came in, the girls were animated and having lots of fun...


We found a restaurant, and went to get some food, we chilled for a while, then talked about the weekend, my goals for the future, and what I had to do to improve!


My bootcamp with Ozzie was awsome more than I had expected, he showed me what it could be for me with practice in the field, every weekend can be like that if I put my self out there and go for it, and I will only improve.

Reading all the bootcamp Reviews on these forums are great, but nothing compared to actually experiencing it for your self, all the emiphanies I had I probably heard before, but none of them were internalised, none were beliefs, they were all second hand info...



Commitments

Ozzie asked me to make some commitments to myself and him, If I wanted to achieve these goals I had to practice, there is no magic pill for these things, it can all be achieved easily with practice!

My commitments were:

-To go out 3 nights/week, Thursday, Friday and Faturday and 1 extra day if I want and have the time.

-If I get discouraged, just go, be present at the club if I chode out and stand arround in the club, the next time I go I will approach not to feel like a chode.

-Commit to every week to constantly offer value, be nice and friendly.

- Practice my diaphragm voice every day, I can do this on my drive to work and back.



Trully Awsome!

Seems like you had fun - and that your bootcamp experience was pretty different from mine.

Quote:
I still haven't called the girl, or sent her my number, I dont know why, its like I dont really care to?

See it this way: Calling/texting her is a chance to get into another interaction which is likely to be a valuable experience for you once you have the number of a girl you ARE attracted to.

Quote:
Do not try to impress the girls or say things that will give you positive reactions, say things for your own fun, weather they respond positively or negatively id does not matter! (hence the reason for the embarrassing opener at the beginning)

An intriguing paradox: By not trying to impress by bragging, you aim at impressing on a higer lever by presenting yourself as a not-outcome-attached guy shades

And why didn't you...? I thought Ozzie was the closing guru wink  I am curious if you will successfully close once you are out on your own.

Excellent post, I popped a beer and smoked a pipe just for this post! Seems like we are much the same. I consider myself a dabbler as well, and several other personality feats matched mine. Sounds like you learned a whole lot in your 3 days. I can't wait until I do the same one day. Unfortunately I don't think there are any bootcamps in Norway, so I'll have to wait until I visit / move to the US.

Anyway, this was a great read, and will serve as future inspiration for many people on this board!

Edit: There are bootcamps now and then, but only down in Oslo, which I dread going to. I'd rather fly over to the US and do it there.

Goran has come a long way since his program. He has also turned into a bit of freakeee. No. He is alright.3 years later I still stand by the content taught in his program. My program today is radically different.

This influence/concern model really resonates with me.
Great way to look at things.

One of the things Ozzie taught me is that everyone has a circle of concern and circle of influence:

the circle of concern always stays the same size, and the circle of influence although smaller than the circle of concern can be made to get bigger or smaller, the more you think about things that concern you i.e:

“Oh man I gotta go out tomorrow night, what if the club is expensive, what if they don’t let me in, what if people think Im weird for hanging out at a club alone on a thursday night talking to random people”,

the smaller your circle of influence gets, and your circle of concern takes over,

but if you start thinking of things you can influence i.e:

“Im gonna go out tomorrow no matter what, I can find a free night club, I can find a backup club just incase, I will approach as many people as possible tonight, I will go for a makeup your circle of influence gets bigger.

Your circle of influence gets stronger, and bigger...

Im only now starting to properly understand this Concern and Influence theory!

 Just did the "Im 22, Im a Self Help Geek, Im doing this to overcome social anxiety, and Im terrified of hot women," to about 70 people at an outdoor restaurant.  I felt like such a boss up there with all those people listening to me and me not giving a shit.  Go Ozzie
