Congrats brooski! we made it :')..
Before the challenge you couldnt facebook number close
you couldnt retain girls for more than 10 minutes with direct openers
You had never closed a chick that has a boyfriend
you basically calibrated too much for the approaches
you wouldnt even try to wing.. and now you dont just wing but now can even steal my chick lol (asshole haha)
you couldnt a girl with a boyfriend that she was cute right in front of him
we couldnt last 5 minutes talking to a random chick at the mall!

Do you believe in the process a lil bit more now? haha

I wonder what awesome experiences we will have in the next month.. im excited bro
Peace!

 August 30 - 2nd 30 Day Challenge - Starting Life NOW

Ok too much procrastination guys, too much complaining, whining, and not taking action. LIFE STARTS NOW.

Too much procrastination, too much being uncomfortable and not exhausted. LIFE STARTS NOW. RIGHT NOW!

I just made a decision, one that will change my life. I AM TAKING ACTION. NO COMPLAINING, WHINING. JUST SHUTTING THE FUCK UP AND GETTING ON WITH IT.

God I miss that mindset from back in the day (two weeks ago). I dont know what happened, maybe I got worn out, exhausted, without any willpower at all. But the thing is that now I am ready, my fuel tank is FULL. I AM READY TO DO THIS SHIT. Ready to do what? Ready to get a near perfect score in the SAT, go back to the habits of exercise and diet, and approach every fucking day. 

LETS DO THIS.

In regards to pickup, I am starting a 30 day challenge. Fuck yes.

I already started it today. 

Day 1

4 approaches. I did 1 approach yesterday, for the record.

1st approach: 3 cute girls. I asked "Where is the mall?" Funny. I was at the mall. They just walked away. I tried to get them back, I couldnt.
2nd approach: 2 girls, one fatty and one kind of cute. I told them they were cute. They walked away. Geez!
3rd approach: Pretty girl. I tell her she is cute. She laughs. I ask her if she is from here. She says yes and walks away. Damn!!
4th approach: Girl. I tell her she is cute, even though she is not that cute lol. I just eject.

Well, today was not a really good day. So, yep, I gotta go now. 

LIFE STARTS NOW!!!!! 

SUCCESS IS A DECISION! LETS GO FOR IT!

PEACE RSD.

@dcampo3: Oh hell yeaaah dude.

August 31 - Going back to happiness, healthy habits, and BEING A BEAST at a mall

(4 approaches)

I exaggerated at being a beast. But, I really enjoyed today's approaching session. There was some pretty cool shit. Too bad I got IOIs from a young teenager I approached like three weeks ago, I feel like she's too young for me, yet she sparks attraction in me. Well, fuck that shit, it's no big deal. Nothing happened. Literally.

Today my brother and I went to approach with our buddy. 

What is really really bad about today is that I dont remember my approaches. I winged some approaches so I got it all messed up, idk the ones I approached or winged. Idk how my brother does to remember... that's pretty sick I am not gonna lie (Attempted humor... trying to imitate Ozzie lol, that line of his always makes me lol).

So well, a GENERAL IDEA of todays approaches:

I was really happy, joyful, and self-amusing. I loved it. 
I also tried to adopt the Alex's mindset of being the man in the girls life, and trying to endure her tests by calming her down.

That video help me understand A LOT of my daygame experiences. So today, I got some nice interactions thanks to self-amusement and calming girls down.
In my last approach, I went to talk to girls with a bottle inside my jacket, alluding to a pair of fake breasts. It was pretty funny. Good interaction with the girls. I really feel like the allergy in my eyes is holding me back though, it is really hard to make eye contact with that pain in my eyes... I keep approaching anyways, no excuses. As far as I am concerned, every disadvantage has an equivalent advantage. So, its all good. Nothing is holding me back. I take that back. wtf...

So yeah... cool stuff today. I like life... again!

It's like right now I am grateful for breathing air lol, as if I am grateful just for having the opportunity to live and express myself. Awesome awesome awesome. Great stuff.

Peace everybody.

 September 1st - Going hard at it when you feel down FEELS SO FUCKING GOOD

(4 approaches) 

Day 3

Today was a big ass approach anxiety day. SO MUCH approach anxiety, it was ridiculous, and weird - I had not been in that situation some time ago. Actually, the last time I was in this situation was in post #45 of this journal. And after that post I had an amazing expansion. Really fucking great. I've also realized the last days that contractions are neither good nor bad; same with expansions. Expansions lead to contractions, contractions lead to expansions. It's all the same shit, and they do not deserve to be judged as good or bad. They are just what they are. I was reflecting yesterday, and I realized that most of my growth has been in those really HARD times when I was full of depression and just wanted to QUIT everything and DIE! Oh yeah, back when I was 12 years old, I see the old me at that time and all I can do is be compassionate of that kid. That kid that pushed through hard times. It really amazes me, and makes me proud to a certain extent. Even when they are "vulnerabilities", I am happy that I can own my story. It feels so good.

So, a way to define expansions and contractions would be... surface experiences :) And the only constant is YOU, or me lol. Now I can understand more of Tyler's video called "the only constant is you" (something like that). I realize more how everything is a transient experience, that just comes and goes away. Amazing, so damn amazing. It kinda shocks me to realize all of these things lol.

Approaches

1st approach: 3 set of cute girls. I walk to them, tell them they are cute. I am so chill lol. They ask me if it was a challenge. I say "kind of" lol. We talk for like 2 minutes. I decide to leave.

2nd approach: (After like 30 minutes of walking around and pussying out). Blowout.

3rd approach: (After like 15 minutes pussying out, I WAS NOT in the zone today). Ok this one was really hard for me. The approach anxiety hurt really bad lol, like I could really feel the chode inside of me. It was at a bookstore. It was a mixed set. I stood there near them for like 5 minutes, psyching myself to approach, and pussying out. Pretty sick lol. But some part of me could not accept not approaching as an option, that would've been way to painful. So, after like 5 minutes of feeling deep approach anxiety, I started building some leverage by emotively repeating to myself over and over again "HOW THE FUCK AM I GOING TO LIVE MY DREAMS? How the FUCK am I going to achieve my FUCKING dreams if I dont approach right now". I kept repeating that. Surprisingly, I felt even more approach anxiety, and I just accepted that piece of shit of feeling, leaned towards that, let it exist. After a while, some sort of crazy power came to me, invigorated my soul and body, and propelled me to do the approach. Amazing experience. It gives me a sense that I can achieve things if I really want to, it increases my confidence. Love it. 

The approach went well. Good emotions. I tried to calm the girls down, like Alex does lol. It works ;) But well, no number closes or anything. Just a little chat. My criteria for success was approaching so.... yep that was pretty badass for me. Pat on the back lol.

4th approach: Two cute girls. At this point, I could approach more easily as I had a DRIVE, I had unlocked the POWER. Shit went well too. I tapped the girl's shoulder. She got a bit scared, surprised lol. I went really chill, smooth, calmed them down. Shit went awesome. I "facebook closed", but not really because it was not solid and I dont have them as friends on facebook. At least I went for it lol, WHICH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.

It's funny how I am seeing a lot of people I have approached before at the mall lol. It seems like I have good facial memory. I even remember the names of some girls lol. One girl that I had a nice interaction like 3 weeks ago smiled and waved at me lol. Too bad I am not really attracted to her, but thats cool. It's all cool.

FUCK YES.

My dreams are far from me and a long way to go. But by doing these small things everyday, I will get closer to those dreams every day. 

I love everything, I love people, pickup, RSD instructors, members of the community posting stuff about outer/inner game, books and green smoothies. It's all helped me SO MUCH. I can only be very thankful for all that's happening to me.

I LOVE IT. FUCK!

PEACE RSD NATION.

Oh, for next time: BREAK OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE. 

Developed today: breaking out of my comfort zone :)

September 02 - Day 4 - Showing what cold approaching is all about and its healthy effect on life

I had a nice day today. Cool stuff. 

I also had quite some approach anxiety, each approach would get my heart beating fast lol. I had some time without experiencing this... must be a contraction or something, doesnt matter 'cause I keep approaching and taking action anyways.

So my brother and I went with a cousin to the mall. Our cousin found a friend, who did not know anything about approaching lol.

Then my brother tells me to approach a girl, I realize it is my only chance because it is pretty early and theres not much people at the mall. So I go approach her...

1st approach: Cute girl. I tell her she is cute. She leans in to listen to me lol. I tell it to her again. She indecisively walks away. I tell her to stop. She stops hehe. I tell her I want to meet her. She says "haha no its okay". I then let her go away. But I should have calmed her down, say "Oh it's fine, I know being approached can be tough sometimes" or something like that. 20 minutes later I saw her with her boyfriend lol.

2nd approach: 2 not so cute girls. Finding any girl was pretty hard, so I just went to these girls. I told they were cute, ask for their names, made some jokes, we laugh a bit, and I go away.

I walk around some more with my brother. We find a guy that looks life Jeffy lol, then he starts to talking to us in English, I am like "wtf?". My brother tells him that we are hiting on chicks, he says "so you wanna get laid?", for a minute he sounded so much like Jeffy that I swore that was Jeffy lol. But no he wasnt lol. It would've been REALLY cool to see Jeffy, I mean... that guy is one of my role models, love his style.  So we tell those guys about RSD and our approaching thing. My brother tells me to go approach a girl, so I fucking run, tap her shoulder...

3rd approach: .... I run, tap her shoulder, she turns around, she is cute, I feel the pain of stepping out of my comfort zone lol. I tell her she is cute. She is a bit scared. I calm her down. I tell her it's all cool. She says she has to go work because she is late. We talk a bit of where she works, then about the weather (it was one nice sunny today, it is rare to see those days here). She says she really has to go. She kisses me goodbye (like people in Latin America do... culture, but still shows some degree of comfort and attraction). She tells me to go meet her at the store where she works. I forgot the name of the store lol. Damn. Well... I'll get another girl haha. 

The guys were pretty impressed haha. We tell them to check out RSD and gave them our chode backgrounds. Hopefully they check it out lol... gotta love RSD for all the great things it has done for me. Love you RSD!!!

4th approach: 2 women. They have their faces painted. I ask them why. They say they are doing a show. Simple interaction, cool.

Analysis:
It was a good day, even with all the approach anxiety, and I hope also that I am building leverage for those sets that I am too scared to approach. There was this sweet gorgeous teenager with her mother and brother. I stood like 15 meters away from her, trying to man up and do the approach, when I was finally going to do that, they went inside the cinema. Fuck! I beat myself up for not approaching, for not achieving my only criteria for success there, for committing a LITTLE SUICIDE. Oh yeaaah, the Art of beating yourself up, as Tyler calls it. 

Gotta love everything.

Developed today: manning up.

For next time: MORE MANNING UP! BREAKING OUT OF COMFORT ZONE!

@dcampo3: NICE

September 3 - Day 5 - My alpha self and chode self shake hands

Lately I've been reading some psychology, self-help, productivity sources to increase one's performance, and one of the things that I found very interesting was digging into the topic of how people have different selves. This was also seen in Alexander's interview with Tim. So, I decided I would let the alpha male do the hard work and struggle while the chode self can enjoy sitting back and having sex with hot women; that way, both selves are happy and fulfilled!!

AWESOME!

Watching Julien's last article with 6 new vids was very importanto too, his idea of doing things as if "you had a gun pointed to your head" resonated with me to a deeper level. This is something that helped me a lot today.

Today's success/pushing-myself mantras were "How the fuck am I going to achieve my dreams?" and "Today I die" lol. I'll explain a bit of the last one, which is kind of a combination of Julien's "gun pointed to your head" and "living every day as if it was the last one".

Approaches: 
1st approach: Cute fatty. Oh yeaah. I went there. I said "Excuse me". Then I said nothing. I could not find willpower to say she was cute lol. My head was filled of NTPs like "oh she is waiting for her boyfriend", etc.
 
THEN I WALK AROUND THE MALL FOR LIKE 15 MINUTES AND LOSE ALL OF MY MOMENTUN AND GET INSIDE MY HEAD. 

2nd approach: I had so much approach anxiety, that I decided that I just had to break the fuck out of it like I've done several times before. A contributing factor was the macro momentum of breaking my comfort zone hard in the last days. The catalyst to go approach was a new mantra I came out with, "Today I die". And it was so weird, like I literally believed I would die lol. I was so convinced of it. This thing led me to dont give a fuck about a NTPs and just approach. In my head I was like: "what the fuck does it matter if the boyfriend beats the shit out of me if today I will die anyways...". Crazy lol. I hope that line does not become a self fulfilling prophecy lol. God forbid! So I went approach a girl, kinda cute, not so much. I told her that I thought she was cute. She blew me out.

I started jackoff theory lol.

3rd approach: Older woman sitting down. I think she was like 30 lol. I told her she was cute, and I basically blew myself out, I just walked away lol.

4th approach: Two girls. One was kinda hot. I told them they were cute. They laughed, said thank you, walked away. Should've called them back.

Well I re-approached them like 20 minutes later. I told them "I know it is the second time I say this, but I think you guys are really cute". I was so free of outcome and self-amusing, they laughed their asses off. I should've asked for their names, try to take things further, but I think I was lazy to do that, and we were about to leave anyways because my brother had finished his approaches. Well...next time I'll stay in set... otherwise... HOW THE FUCK AM I GOING TO ACHIEVE MY DREAMS?

Also, I viciously AMOGGED the shit out of my brother lol. Huge cockblocking. Dont worry dude, I give you permission to do that to me AND with the HOTTEST GIRLS or with the BEST interactions that I have. It is about time to SNAP THE FUCK OUT of that ass outcome dependance and silly stupid thinking like "oh no! what will they think about ME?!". FUCK THAT SHIT. This is about HAVING FUN and ENJOYING THE PAIN. Actually, I good way to frame is to LAUGH at your pain. LAUGH everytime you have approach anxiety, LAUGH everytime a girl rejects you. TRANSMUTE those bad emotions into LAUGHTER. Thank you Julien, you hammered this point into me: EVERYTHING IS SELF-AMUSING.

Developed today: Pushing comfort zone.

For next time: BREAK comfort zone.

Oh, and for all the biddy bitches, WAIT FOR ME, I AM COMING.


Also, today was a great day, I accomplished all the stuff that I set out to do. Great. I am increasing my productivity. Awesome.

Gotta keep this up!

 September 4 - A Normal Day of Contraction



What a great vid, love it.

So yeah, I don't feel really good today, kinda sucks because of all the consecutive feel-good days I've been having the last days. But today, for some reason it was like meeh... going down and down and down.

But well... part of the process, and I still took action keeping up with the consistency so that's awesome. Great.

1st approach: 2 cute girls, geez. I think the cutest one got attracted to me quite fast, and then her friend cockblocked me. Sucks when that happens...
2nd approach: Chick sitting by herself. Pretty cute. I went direct. She got a bit scared, just said thank you and got unresponsive.
3rd approach: 2 fucking cute girls. Geez!! AAAAH! Blowout. And I am lacking the willpower to stay in set and plow also... same thing happened in the second approach. I NEED to build that leverage!
4th approach: Cute girl walking by herself. I told her she was cute. She smiled and said thank you. Again, I did not stay in set. WTF?!! 

So yeah for next time STAY IN SET.

Props to me for approaching!! yay!!

Alright, gotta KEEP it uuuup! 

Adventureeee, pimping! haha peace out
