Tyler talks about this concept of burning the boats - cutting off all ties so that your only option is to move forward.

What are some of the ways you guys have 'burnt the boats' in your own lives?

Well this wasn't because of personal choice.

I had "my" id taken away so now its pure day game... I love the night venues but its time to become well rounded.

Asian chicks have it bad. I once saw a Japanese porno and those dudes had dicks so small, they just gave joy to no one.

When I think about "burning the boats", I think of the movie 300 where there is no option but to fight and win OR fight and die, but either way, you are going for glory. Burning to boats means to me that you need to always take a shot at doing your best and doing whatever it takes, and I like to live my entire life with this mentality. Whether in picking up girls, where I'll followup hard and escalate on a girl very quick and fast, or whether in business, where I work my ass off to make something happen, "I am burning those boats". For those of you who don't know where this phrase comes from, it comes from the Viking days, when the Viking Commander would tell his troops to light their boats on fire as soon as they invaded a foreign land. That way, there are no other options but to fight. Nobody can retreat. So many people play to not lose as opposed to playing to win. But you gotta PLAY TO WIN.

move to a city where you know nobody.  quit your job to start your company.  give a close friend a large sum of money and let him keep it if you don't do something you promise to do.

If you want to make something of your life, that's the only option anyway.

Divorced my wife. Her family hates me, our friends took her side, my family won't speak to me.

I closed my business. Fuck it. All its given me is sleepless nights, problems & stress. Money is not worth it.

I left the country & the world I know to think, reflect, read books, do soul searching, and start a new.
