Monday August 5 - Day 26

Okay so I took lots and lots of action. Yay! :)

So I found a friend of pickup, sarged with him. I would tell him "Hey go approach that girl". Then I would keep walking and then look back that he had not approach and I would tell him "What the hell! you are still here?!" and then I went and approached. It was pretty funny.

First girls would react like "What? Oh thanks" but kinda like aloof and not hooking. Funny shit.

I kept approaching and seeing the funny side to my approaches. Then I went to a two set that were about to enter a place. I told the girl this: "Hi excuse me. Look, I don't want to insult you, but I love your style". She was like "Oh my god!". Then my wing came and said "Uh yeah we just saw you walking by" and a bunch of shit, he fucked up the situation, but who cares... when they were leaving I said "Yeah we are gay" lol.

And then I keep walking, I see a cute petite girl. I go after her, approach her, funny stuff. She acts like "Oh my god! What happened?". I tell her that I love her style, looks good. She is like "Oh haha thank you". And well we talk a bit standing there. Then she says that she has to go see some stuff so I go with her, Then we go sit on a park bench and talk and talk. I think I was a bit friendzoned but that is cool.

Lessons
- To avoid being friendzoned, be direct to tell her that I think she is attractive. Tell her to remind myself that I think she is attractive and also so she knows a bit better what my intentions are... or at least has an idea of my intentions.
- I have an infinite amount of energy, positive emotions, and value! So let's give it all!!

Peace!

@Me-vs-Me: Yeah... I told myself I was not going to feel any sexual pleasure until I got laid. Not fapping for a year, however, was a bit too much. I thought I would get laid way before that lol. Now I've lost my appreciation for sexual pleasure, gotta get back to it haha

Tuesday August 6 - Day 27

Well I went out today to do some daygame.

Then my friend Alejandro calls me, he is in a bar drinking a beer. I go there, have some beers and after that we crash into an entrepreneurs social event. Funny how my friend looks for this kind of social events lol.

Anyways, the event was shitty. So after having some more beers, we go outside. By this point I feel a bit tipsy and certainly happy lol

Oh before meeting with my friend I did one approach. Girl with amazing ass. I told her "Hey I like your style", but then she ended up leaving. So whatever... I kept it up.

Okay so let's fastforward a bit back to where I was. So I go back into the streets with my friend. I approach a girl with glasses, cute girl. I am like so happy, not giving a fuck, and commanding as hell haha. So she stops and everything. We have a chat. She is a bit shy thought or doesn't talk much so I lead very well in our conversation. When I am closing her she tells me she has a boyfriend lol. I tell her "Let's just be friends. You know... I just want to have a million friends and sing louder". So she laughs. And everything is alright.

I think my cellphone plan expired so I haven't been able to sent her the usual text message.

Then I approached another girl. Cute. She was like shocked and thought it was weird to talk to a stranger the whole time lol. I closed her with messenger what the fuck. Funny. I was like "Well if I hadn't talk to you there was no way to meet you. I meet people through social circle you know" and stupid shit. Ballsy as hell still lol.

I learned here that it is important to maintain frame.

Lesson

- Maintain frame. Acknowledge her concerns and be empathetic to a certain extent but MAINTAIN FRAME. Frame it in a way that I am awesome and she is the weird one.
- In pickup, the "seek first to understand then to be understood" is not really necessary. Just fucking PULL her into my reality. Be unapologetic and authoritative/commanding.

Peace!

Wednesday August 7 - Day 28

Well so I did a few sets.

My lessons were these:
- Have fun. Enjoy what you say. Make it fun.
- Pressure off and pressure on. Don't go too long on neither one of those. It is necessary to alternate between the two to keep that girl attracted.

Alright so I got there kind of in a low mood. I saw some cute chicks but did not approach. I kept walking. I decided it was time to do it. So I did it. First set the girl was like "Wtf" and just kept walking.

The second set I told an ugly girl "Hey excuse. Can I tell you something really quickly? I just saw you, and I like you". Funny. She did not know what to do and walked away lol.

So I kept my way. My last set was a cute girl. I stopped her. She was like "What?" in surprise. Then I took off the pressure, but I spend too much time there and kept it there for far too long and she walked away.

So yeah, there is the pressure on / pressure off lesson.

Peace!

@sexuality: I would do that but I have no money to do it

Thursday August 8, 2013 - Day 29


I took some action today. It was cool. I did a set in which I wanted to kiss the girl. I got a bit of physicality, but she had a boyfriend.

And yeah.

Then I got rejected. Wtf...

And yeah.

I left the field not really knowing what I am doing wrong or what I could improve on.

Like seriously, fuck. You know? This is the bad side of doing something wrong, you have to GO BACK A SECOND TIME AND DO IT RIGHT.

FUCK.

So yeah, tomorrow I'll go back and figure the fuck out of what I am doing wrong.

I want to get laid now. This is no joke. I really want to get laid god damn it. FUCK.

I have a year in this shit and nothing. COME ON! And it is not like I am not taking action. What the hell...

Let's keep it up.

Lessons
- Do it RIGHT. FUCK.
- Engage physically and be CLEAR in my intent. Put the foot on the gas pedal, and keep it the fuck there with freedom from outcome, talking AT the girl, and self-amusing. Physicality as a way of expression.



I can complain as much as I want and cry as much as I want, or self-dramatize all of this shit, or pretend I am so kind of victim. But sadly, even if it might feel good in the short term to indulge in that kind of stupid bullshit or given in to Resistance, my situation continues to be unresolved. So let's do this. Let's step this up.

Probably what I need is to step this up into the greatest level.

The more I give, the more I receive. It is time to GIVE IT ALL. Like literally, time to PAY MY FUCKING DUES.

Let's do this.

Peace.

Usually them not really sticking is related to being too much pick up and too little regular joe. Change your opener to:

"Hey, you are quite cute. I'm Eric. (Extend hand). Can we talk for 2 minutes?"

Notice something really regular about her.

"Nice bracelet. Did you make it yourself?"

Let her answer and harp on about any topic you can that you are passionate about for a long time.

"Listen, you are an alright girl. I like XXX about you, but I have a problem."

"What?"

"My cell is dead. I'll never see you again if I leave now. How about coffee now - over there. Under 30 minutes. I think we have something here."

Reading your field report, I feel like you should stop number closing completely for a month and instadate only. You need to push the interaction long enough to get the date - or live with getting nothing. Also, be less emotionally inspiring and go more regular cool dude. Keep all interactions as long as you can. Watch Chodes Night Out 2 Pt. 1 (angry girls) to understand what that means.

Good luck.

@ZeroQ: Yeah I agree man. I am not sure about not taking any numbers though. Sometimes logistics are fucked and that is the only way. But yeah definitely I'll go into instant dates. I watched Justin Wayne infield videos today and he is so fucking good at this shit, I'll be using a lot of his stuff from now on.

Friday August 9, 2013 - Day 30


So it was a good day.

I took a beer. Fun.

I approached a girl with a great ass. She is 22 lol. I told her I was 21 but that is okay. The goal is to date her and FUCK her up that OMG.

I've been employing physicality into my approaches today, trying to be smooth with it. I closed the girl with number. I'll call her tomorrow and set something up. I walked with her for a while, stayed for a while, then her friend came and they went away, but I closed before that because I know the importance of closing before she meets with her friends. I've learned that lesson.

Then I winged my brother with some girls.

After that I talk to a cute girl. She said she was a mom haha

I hugged her. Nice stuff. She took my number. It looks like she will flake. She didn't even give me her number.

That's cool.

Lessons
- Use physicality as a way of expressing love.
- Just offer love.

The 30 day challenge is over. I can't believe it. Another 30 day challenge gone. I MUST take the most out of these challenges. I gotta go all out, really. Let's do this.

Peace!

Saturday August 11, 2013 - Day 1 - New 30 Day Challenge

Make It Like A Movie

Alright so, inspired by Alex new video 201x, and seeing lots of stuff about lifestyle here in the RSD community, I've designed a new challenge. This challenge is based in LIFESTYLE.

First let's set the rules. But let's provide a bit of the context in my life situation before that. I am not going to Germany any more. Fucking visa required making a blocked account on Deutsche Bank that would take lots of time, and would also create more of a burden with money. So there is not much time to enroll this fall semester, which means I'll probably enter on the Spring semester. So I'll go in February, probably.

Alright so the rules:
1. Fuck cold approach mastery. Fuck that shit. I've realized that, if you want to reach cold approach mastery, you have to let go of cold approach mastery and actually focus on your lifestyle. I got this idea from Distant Light posts.
2. Put Health, Music, Gym, DIet, College,Sleep, and Friends as priorities over cold approach pickup. Cold approach pickup should not really be number one in my life. And I got this idea from Alex in his Attraction Manifesto which is great by the way. So yeah, this means
3. So the above rules mean that I am not obliged to go sarge every day. If I want to go, then good I'll go. I'll go out like 3 - 4 times a week to get some girls and have some fun.
4. I'll focus a lot on getting back to Music. I want to start playing guitar again, singing, writing songs, that kind of stuff that I love so much.
5. I'll focus on meeting girls on campus and walking around campus, meeting people, chatting with them, socializing, and then keep walking around campus and repeating the process of socializing. THAT is the key. It is about walking around campus with the intention of bringing people into my life and giving LOVE.

So yeah that is it

Cool stuff.

Love it.

I had a good day 1. I closed two girls. Both girls were gooood... cute girls. Love it. I liked the second one especially, she had a cute face and a nice body. Now, interaction was short so I don't know if it is solid. I told her to go out on Monday. So I'll call her and see what is up.

Then the first girl was cool also. I ended up landing the plane lol. It was amazing how I did it. I went direct at first. I think it really hit her emotions when I qualified her. I also landed the plane by being self-amused.

I am starting to qualify girls. It is great.

So I had a great day. I was at the top of my shit lol. Making it happen. Talking AT the girl. Being awesome and hot.

Then I found one of my female friends at the streets. Girl loves me lol. We had really nice vibes. For some reason, I've friendzoned her, I think because she is kinda cute but not really like to be with her as something serious. This kind of thing also happens with all of my female friends. Then, I met with other girl friends to go to the club. Again, they are very "attracted" to me or aroused by me in a way.

I think my girl friends are the kind of girls that, if I were isolated with them at the end of the night and had some alcohol with them, we would fuck, just like that. And it is great as fuck. I love it. I'll keep making friends :D

It also feels great to be the one friend zoning them lol

Lessons
- Qualifying the girl is great. You must let them know that you like them for a specific trait and not just because they have a vagina.
- Girl friends are great. I love spending time with them lol... Actually, people are great. I feel like I am starting to LOVE people, spending time with them, and building relationships. That is great improvement for me :)

Peace!

Sunday August 11, 2013 - Day 2 of The Dream Lifestyle Challenge

Today I felt awful for approaching. It was like I was not in the mood for it. But I feel so glad that I actually did.

What I am realizing is that it does not matter whether you are in a bad mood or good mood, the opportunities present themselves to you, and THEY DO NOT GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOUR MOOD. So it is YOUR CHOICE whether you want to capitalize your opportunities and take the shots. You see a hot girl walking by, you like her but oh you feel approach anxiety. Well too bad for you then because if you let the girl go then you've lost an amazing chance to get reference experiences and bringing a girl into your life.

I think it is our real goal as man to go out for the things that we want and be completely unapologetic with it. It someone doesn't like it or disagrees, then fuck that person. And it is up to us to make it happen and remove those obstacles in the way.

Fuck yeah.

Alright so my first set was a girl that was about to say hi to her boyfriend lol. Whatever. She said "I am busy" and walked towards her boyfriend.

Then I was feeling chody and anxious. I did not wanted to approach at all. But I hanged in there.

And so my next set was a nice cute girl that I fell in love with once I approached her lol. I saw her walking. I took a deep breath and started walking towards my fears, taking deep breaths in the way and really concentrating.

So I approach her. Once I see her face, it was like WOW, shit haha. She looked familiar to me, so I asked her if she was X girl, I thought I had approached her before lol. She was not. But she was already receptive, so I had a chat with her. The bad part was that I did not overtly express a liking for whatever trait in her. So what I've seen that that creates a sense in the girl that she does not really knows why are we talking. Now, it should be pretty obvious that it is because I like her. I don't know if this is bad actually. I think maybe it doesn't matter. I'll explore this thing.

Then, I did not make her invest. She received a phone call and had to leave.

Then, I felt needy with her for some reason. Whatever. Also, I had a lot of stuff in my mind about "What to do?". That means I must keep taking action hard and internalize a lot of the concepts that I've seen in the Attraction Manifesto, which is GREAT. When I was in set there was a lot of things going around my head. I tried my best to remain present and flowing, but there were still some stuff in my head that pulled me inside my head. Still, it is like being in this kind of situation so many times before has taught me to remain cool and push myself to the best of my abilities. Of course, these moments would be much easier if I was more into the congruence with the "I am enough" frame, so these are moments to remind myself that there is no reason why I am not enough.

So the key thing is acknowledge that I've done it before and that it is okay.

She just accepted me on facebook. I found out she has a boyfriend. But that is fine, because she would have a much better time with me as her man. Yeah.

Lessons
- Qualify the girl before she leaves.
- Empathise with the girl when you see that she does not really know what is going on. Address her concerns. Put yourself in her shoes, acknowledge her situation, and then BACK TO YOUR FRAME.
- Make the girl invest before she leaves. Set up a vague date before she leaves.

I am planning to do a whole different in RSD here with my FRs. I will turn this into a lifestyle journal.

I'll plan my goals tomorrow of what kind of lifestyle I want to have, and how I will move towards that dream lifestyle. It will be all about expanding who I am and being as adventurous as I can be.

I think the project will be called something like "The Dreamland Lifestyle"

The main objective will be:
"To expand my reality by acquiring all kinds of negative (rejections, embarrassment, criticism, etc) and positive (success, sex with hot girls, etc) experiences in order to Be Who I Am Meant To Be and turn my dreams into realities".

I'll focus on finances, hobbies, education, college, social circle, cold approach pickup, MUSIC, health, gym, diet, aesthetics, style, etc.

My goals will be to:
- Create a social circle of hot/cute/cool girls, awesome people that I like.
- Build muscle. Pump up health, style, and aesthetics.
- Start a cashflow by all means. Get an income. Increase my financial intelligence by solving financial problems.
- Immerse myself in the world of music, songwriting. Put myself out there. Learn video editing skills. Improve my singing and guitar playing skills.
- Learn about leadership and apply that to my every day life. Be a leader.
- Make travel plans and actually TRAVEL the world.

These are kind of short term goals.

The overall goals are to TRAVEL the world, fuck hot beautiful women from all places/countries, hang out with awesome people, put myself out there, and let my Being SHINE WITH ALL OF ITS SPLENDIDNESS.

The essence of this project will be INVESTING massively in myself, TAKING MASSIVE ACTION, enduring whatever bullshit / hustling/ or maybe "negative" experiences in order to get PEAK EXPERIENCES. It will be the "Wanting to succeed as bad as you want to breathe" lifestyle. It will be about going through this life journey with ENTHUSIASM, POSITIVITY, LIGHTHEARTEDNESS, AND STAYING HUNGRY FOR MY DREAMS!

I will write down lessons in this journal, keeping this consistent, WALKING A STEP TOWARDS MY DREAMS EVERY SINGLE DAY.

I guess that is it for today. I'll think more about what to include in this project, and focus mainly on the how. I have to do other stuff now.

Peace!
