Tylers Video of today made me watch some Videos of Tony Robbins. I never heard about this guy before and self-help was always an obscure cult for losers. This is also a king of Group-think, since this approach to self-help is the believe of the German academic public/ upper middle class where I grew up. Since learning about RSD of course this changed of course drastically.

Who I became what I am now
What made me open to RSD and now Tony I guess was a shift in my believe system that came over time. I was always very talented academically but I had some rough times when I was  16-17. My parents got divorced and I lived a Thuglive in the suburbs, made some money with little drug dealing and other shit and never ot caught. But then I failed in school, was dropped out and my friends and my brothermade much more progress in life. Everybody in my social circle saw me as a failure and I remember the feeling so clearly: I will end in the gutter, I had all the talent of the world and I threw it away.

Back then my Mom was the one to push me out of this depression. In Germany we have Dual education system, which combines an apprenticeship in a company with school. She pushed me to put in application and a big insurance firm hired me. This was my turning point. After that I could start again and I had people complimenting about my skills. That was so great back then because I hadn't had that in years. I had such a drive to be better than all the others in my class and all the other apprentices that I learned so hard. And I did it, at the end of the apprenticeship I was the best of all students in my state, 4th nationwide. Can you imagine how my ego was back then?

I wanted to achieve more so I went back to regular school, made my Abitur (A level), best grades in my homestate again and went to one of Germanys best University to study mathematics. All through this years the main driver was the positive feedback people gave me, validating my ego and me wanting more of that, but what happened next?

- I almost heard every thing, how smart I was, how driven, There was no new stimulus
- The people around me expected me to perform. There was less stimulus.
- The people I was around were just academically better than before. It was harder to outperform.


Around the time I made my Bachelor's degree I really felt that my old self image, that was fed by outer stimulus and validation could only bring me that far. I could hold my own but I didn't had the passion that I used to have. That's why when I watched blueprint the first time I found the concept of being not doing so attractive. 

When Tony talked about you have to set standards to be pulled to, because willpower don't last I had a great epiphany.



Because I could see that it was my standards back then which pulled me in and made me better. This Standards were being better than everyone sorround me and being seen as an intelligent guy, and I was very ego based and manipulitive to get there. And since this limited stndards doesn't work anymore for me I'm about to create new. And maybe you like those standards and create your own on them.

Warrior, King, Lover



Listening to Tony talking about standards got me thinking: What do I want to be? I figured out three aspects of my personality that I find equally importmant. These are being a Warrior, a King and a Lover. After I thought about this I realized that Leonidas of the movie/graphic novel 300 embodies these characteristics in one person. So he's a good metaphore for these standards.

The Warrior

being a warrior for me means to be mentally and phisically strong. I love martial arts and the power they give me in a daily life. And to know that you can beat up 99% of human males is a great thing in clubs too ;-)
Rituals are:
- Weight Lifting
- Jiu-Jitsu, MMA , Muay Thai
- Eating good food
- Meditation (Thank you Tyler for this one!)


The King
Being a King is to be intellectual, educated, smart, outspoken and having success in business, university, achieving financial freedom  and also being reliable in your everyday life.

Rituals are:
- Learning 8 hours a day
- Reading good books
- Not wasting your time on facebook or some other crap (I did this way too often)
- Listening to nteresting podcasts
- Talking to inspiring/smart people

For the last bullet point, I think Brads Video is a great way to get deeper in:



The Lover

In the last 2 months this was a side of my personality I learned new about. Enjoying polarity, meeting multiple girls a week and having sex with them, having fun in the club like never before was such a gift. Sounds cheesy but it was the missing link for me to become a complete man. I write about this stuff more in my Blog and you have te best content in the world of this topic on the front page but here are my Rituals

- Going out 3 nights a week
- talk to every girl I like night or day (my results are almost all from daygame, Actually Ozzies Video in Finland made my club game better, THANKS OZZIE)
- Learning on RSD
- Save money for BC (2013 baby) 


Thats it for now guys! I get back to you in a couple of weeks and tell you how this worked out for me on a daily basis!
