I wanted to talk about this movie because it is the first motion picture I have seen that approaches fear from the fear tech perspective. It is a movie entirely dedicated to the concept of fear, all kinds of fears. The movie is about a motivational book that seems to inspire people. You learn about the book’s ideas second hand through how it changes the lives of people in the movie. I think it has so many successful Hollywood actors in it because they identify with the ideas in the script. They believe in the movie. The movie is a “no bullshit” approach to success and motivation.  What motivates people? Why do some people rise above their difficulties and others don’t?
1.       “There is no stopping someone who would stop at nothing”. So if you want something, you have to decide how to get it. I love the quote. Be stopples. Stop at nothing. Success is a decision. Whenever you succeed at something it is because you decided already you will win. So success it is a conscious decision. Fear overcome. At that moment you decide your fears won’t stop you. It is kind of fear tech. We accept the symptoms and we march into battle. Failure is part of it. We accept it as part of the risk, the package, the deal. This is how we empower ourselves. I remember when I first started in the game and I decided I wanted the success that those jerks in the club were having. They seem to march out of the club with the girls while the rest of chumps watched. I decided I didn’t want to be a chump anymore. I wanted to win. Stop being a spectator and become an actor. 
2.       Life goes by and one day you wake up and feel like your time has passed you by. So the time is now. Very few people achieve. In the movie you can see why. Most people become involved with their fears. They give power to their fears by dwelling in them. They become part of their fabric, of who they are. We want to get to know our fears, not because we want to cuddle them, because we want to get rid of them, we want to nuke them. In my bootcamp, I want my students to become aware of their fears. Last weekend I had a student who was afraid “to be arrested like Julien RSD instructor for groping a girl”, but Julien was never arrested for doing what he does. He made up a negative fantasy in his head about a hypothetical situation that never happened but he believed it. It is funny how many students I get over the years with same fears of being arrested because they approached a girl. They become invested in their fear. Needless to say, by the second night of program, they forgot this fear. I make it a point to remind them where they were the day before and see how much progress they have made in just one day. They have new fears on the second day of bootcamp. They are afraid to fail, not get what they want when they approach and so on. New fears pop up. That’s why fear technology is about fear resolution, not fear avoidance. We dwell in fear long enough so we can get rid of it.
3.       “Empires are built on a kiss”. Action is the magic word. There is no wrong action. Failure is just feedback. When did you start being a slave to your fears? “We get what we want by smashing through by sheer will...” Stallone’s character says. It is important to know what you are and what you are not. You need to get to know “you”. You need to know what stops you, what motivates you. Most guys want what they see in others but rarely are aware about what’s going on inside. Build your private empire. Make a wish list. Then investigate your fears around it and dedicate the next three month to break through them. I make sure my students get to approach the hottest girls in the club every night. They need to get close to the dream, the wish list and keep the dream alive. Soon they start isolating them and the dream becomes more real. They still lack the confidence to go for the kiss but so be it. They start to entertain the idea that their belief system was wrong. That approaching hot women takes the same amount of energy that approaching average looking girls. You need to break through the glass ceiling of fear.
4.       “I am Roger and I don’t smoke”. I love that line. It is useless to whine. In the movie, one of the characters can’t quit smoking. He loves the drama of trying to quit cigarettes and not being able to. People love the drama of being hopeless. “I can’t get girls because I don’t know how”, “I can’t get girls because I lack the skills/the confidence/the looks...” and so on. You need to stop “struggling” and decide what you want and go get it. Stop the drama of “I cannot do it”. Stop fueling the idea that are not made for success. There is no stopping somebody who would stop at nothing.
5.       Afraid of your own potential? Fear of Success disguised as fear of failure? In the movie the main character is afraid of public speaking, he is afraid of the limelight, literally. Think about yourself. Break it down. Break yourself down and build yourself back up. Be ashamed of where you are today and be disgusted with it and promise you will change it. You are either yesterday or you are part of today. Feel guilty and ashamed for what you were yesterday. Somehow you have to be disgusted at yourself in order to succeed. Personally, I get my motivation by thinking of all the time I have wasted in my life, letting others rule me with their opinions, hung ups and criticism. I am disgusted with all the time I spent trying to get validation from family and friends who don’t care about me. Then I decided to go after whatever I want in life. I know fear will be there waiting for me but I refuse to let it rule me. I accept it as part of the deal. What are you disgusted about in your life today? Be ashamed of it and decide to change it. Let it be a motivation to move forward. It takes more work to fail than to succeed. Think about it, everyday you have to wake up and think up reasons why you stay stuck. Moving forward is a simple idea, deciding to succeed is a simple idea that doesn’t require over thinking.

Damn Ozzie this is a fucking GREAT article and the last one was also very valuable!

Can you please make more articles where you talk about what you have learned from different movies? That would be really cool.

Peace.

Fear of getting into a fight was a pretty big fear of mine. Went out last night after watching this video...approached some chick that was with her boyfriend and he got in my face and angrily said "How about you back the fuck off?" I laughed, gave him a quick pat on the shoulder and said "chill man, it's cool. Y'all have a nice night." Instantly put out that fire. I realized you almost have to be TRYING to get into a fight for something to actually go down, and thus being afraid of getting in a fight is a ridiculous fear. In short, thanks for the content Ozzie, your shit is almost always dope

Except when I'm doing pick up in a club and approach mixed sets the guys a lot of the times start telling me to fuck off and physically pushing me away or they make a barrier with their bodies between me and the girl so I don't know what you are talking about when you say that nothing will happen. One guy even grabbed me from behind and threw me away once and another time the girl had to hold the guy from attacking me. This stuff has happened in the 18+ clubs so maybe those younger guys are more aggressive when they are drunk and I don't escalate these situations myself. I haven't got to a fight yet but I fear that some time in the future one guy might get a little too angry if this pattern continues...

it tells me you are doing something wrong. it doesn't matter the type of club. i have been to them all over the years. club behaviour is the same everywhere you go in the world. 9 out of 10 nothing happens if you do lots of sets like that but fundamentals of the game have to go with you. if you don't do the fundamentals, the non verbals right you are likely to screw things up. Body language, eye contact, loudness, non threatening demeanor are key when you attempt to approach a complicated situation. Also your symptoms of fear might get the better of you. You can't approach in fear and expect a good outcome, need to deal with symptoms first. good luck.

I watched the movie. Some of your articles and videos have moved me into taking action not only when going out, but in other places and aspects, and had in general more effect on my own "progress", and they are for free!
It'd be cool if you put up some new product that is reasonably affordable, like a book or something of the likes, about your last developments, as a cheap excuse for us to give something back.

Watched you material, spent 2 months at the hospital after. #JustKidding.
When you don't grow, you shrink. What would Tyler do?
I have seen so many people shrinking that I push myself everyday and when I'm not... well I feel bad.

Awesome content brah!

I think it would help a lot for everyone if you would divide your text in paragraphs instead of the wall of text.

It is more inviting to read and you will attract more people to read it.
