I have developed a sticking point. I have become subconsciously identified with the idea of being a PUA. It hit me tonight, while I was sitting around watching stand up comedy. I don't approach girls at the moment because I am afraid of them telling me I am not a good PUA. Fuck... Really... My second boot camp with Ozzie explained this to me but I think I was blind to see it.
rrrr... i want to choke you.. watch the ego. identify the emotional motivation that you're feeling and kill it.  What's your motivation? ie. What's your end goal for approaching? 

No worries, this happens and is common once you pass the real of normal social conditioning as how to be and what you can or cannot do.  You'll be fine as long as you recognize why you're doing it and remember why you originally got into this

maan, some of my all time favorite scenes me and my brother used to quote as we beat the hell out of each other as kids, "Yeeeh Joohny, sweep the legs" or "Yeeah, put him in a bodybag" or "strike hard, strike fast, Kobra Khai"  thumbs up

 I got in this to have choice in who I wanted to date. I want to be become a man. I wanted more for my life. I am not at that section of my development yet. I am having success but I identified with success and it went to my head and I think I built an ego around it. I am afraid to let go of the these girls because it has taken a lot of hard work. But I will only get to where I want if I continue to push myself past all the bullshit, the PUA bullshit. 

The Karate KId video struck was when Mr. Mygi talked to Danielson after he had his leg swept. I need to know I can do this for myself.. like I said.. I need to find success in my actions not in my results. I need to step up and be the man I want to be for me not in the eyes of others.

 I have quit drinking, I have  gone through 13 days. It is a struggle at some moments. If I am going to continue on this path, I need to clean my health up now. Not later, or after this. Now!

The 30 Day challenge has begun

I went out for this first time in about two weeks. I took time out from drinking and to clean out my body and head. It is part of the process, I went out with some friends and had some good conversations with them. Just talking about random stuff, Leading conversations - Could Crocadile Dundee stop a terrorist attack? I was loud, took up space. I just wanted to get comfrotable with my self in that environment. I did approach a few people, just chatted about random stuff. I did say loudly that I was hard, and some girl looked over at me, all pissed off and I gave her a high five. I bring the party at all times. Just singing on the street, get uncomfortable and stretch the comfort zone. 

Emotion over logic.

Build up from the basics, internalize all concepts until they are part of my life. Let's rock and roll.

Went out with a buddy and a girl of mine. I am starting to realize if I am going to  consistently go out, I need to dedicate the weekdays to my home spots and then weekends in other parts. Avoids redundancy and you learn different nuances of girls in other places.

Day 4
Ended up passing out with fb. Played word association until I feel asleep.

Day 5

Went out sober and interacted with people. Realize the first few approaches might be weird. Stupid shit is going to come out of your mouth. It's okay. People don't expect you to be perfect. You are a human being. Need to string together interactions, one after another.

Sobriety has been a big sticking point for me. Gaming sober.. It is hard when I am alone.

I am finding my self getting closer and closer to where I want to be. I read Jeffy's newsletter today and it hit something inside of me. Keep planting seeds, and trees will grow. 

Be a cool guy and be social with everyone. Simple as that and you will stay in state and walk through the world with ease.
