WHat do you guys do to punish yourself when you dont execute.

say you have a goal of going out like 5 days a week, and you end up only going out 1 day mainly because of lack of selff discipline. how do u make a punishment of that so that you can be more self disciplined in the future ?  punishment in a good way..

I feel like sometimes people learn more about inaction when they are punished lol ( then there is the whole being self disciplined about self punishing lol)

BTW back in college we would use the phrase "punishing yourself" to mean "whackin off."  :-)

I feel like the "punishment" you get for not doing what you want is that you REMAIN YOURSELF.  LOL.  AKA "sucks to be you" -- thats all the punishment you need.  

Just remember:
- one day I will be dead
- I am accountable to nobody except for myself
- only I will go out and get the result I want

You know how they say...you are the prize.

I actually say that's absolutely correct, except with different semantics.  That when I DO SOME SHIT...the RESULTING VERSION OF ME...that is THE REWARD (to me).  Some people think THE PUSSY is the reward.  Other people think THE STORY is the reward.  To me...its the RESULTING PERSON I AM BECOMING that is the reward.  Oftentimes I can reflect on a night out and realize "Uh...oh right, I was trying to pull 2 fattys to get a 3some...just to get a 3some...was I doing it for the story?  Was that going to make me a more awesome or more effective person?  No?  That's how I know it was wrong..."

i sacrifice an entire nights sleep...albeight with energy drinks and shit but its still painful. and i spend the time working. really works. feel much more confident and full of integrity next day due to extreme self improvement (working hard) . my old mentor said he used to punish himself by going in the freezing ocean and swimming around. no joke

Put yourself in conditions where compliance is guaranteed. For example:

1. Travel to another city where you have nothing to do but sarge.
2. Go out with wings that will push you hard.
3. Take a bootcamp.
4. Write a $1000 check to a good friend and tell him to cash it at the end of the month if you miss more than 2 days of sarging.

etc.

Hmm actually after rewatching DVD 1 of Man Transformation, I see your point with "punish yourself" here Colt...

Actually when I figure out how to implement this better my new "self punishment" is going to be "I gotta teach a certain PUA newbie game for an hour."  This guy LOVES me and I uh...am not the biggest fan of him.  And even though I like teaching what I know, this guy I generally wouldn't want to do even if he was paying me a ton of money haha.  This is the perfect self-punishment for me.  

The other good example (from man transformations) was the guy who said he would clean his grandma's bathroom if he didn't do his multi level marketing stuff for the week.  So...cleaning someone else's bathroom or kitchen would be a good one I guess too.

Other good ideas:
- eating ice cream is punishment for me haha
- drinking milk or eating whey protein, since it makes me fart a LOT

Also give a gay dude off craigslist a handjob.  That would prevent you from ever "not taking the right action."
