Not in the physical world because resources are finite. Skills, just like oil, are finite.



They had to put a cap on the salary of the banker fat cats because they were destroying the financial system. Their greed is infinite but resources are finite.

However, growth can go on forever in the inner world. Knowing what to do, on the outside, is comparably finite-most guys operate with a handful of tactics. As you grow in the game those few tactics might change as dictated by many factors. However, those outer game moves are forced to be few because you can’t get good at 100 things. For some, it is just physical game and isolation. I used to be like that for a long time.

Goran is like that too. Zero or no emphasis on verbal communication.

Deadlier Than the Male

He gets slapped in the face and grabs the girl’s hand and spins her around and goes for make out; or picks up a chick from the floor in the middle of the street and runs away with her in his arms, girl screaming- I shake my head in disapproval because I just lost my camera man for the night to a chick. There goes the neighbourhood.

For other guys, they rely more on verbal skills-cockiness, vibe, push/pull, etc. Point being those skills are just a fraction of what needs to happen internally.

The Internals

Just like electricity, they are there but we don’t see them. They are not so obvious to the naked eye. It is the inner core of beliefs, assumptions and emotions going through the player’s head. It is fascinating to me that some pitchers at major league level can make a career based on a fast ball....and a dubious slider. They make millions based on an otherwise considered “poor” set of skills. Cuban Defector baseball player Aroldis Chapman will sign a multimillion contract this winter based on the fact he can throw a 103 mph fast ball. No other pitch of much value in his arsenal....a dubious slider, may be. That’s all he needs to get the big bucks. Just one outer thing.

So is the case of many pick up players. They got a couple of moves down and they thrive. They get laid. They figure out the rest of the game through those key moves. I have made a student approach an entire night with the claw as his only weapon to the point he got a bruise in his forearm at the end of the night. That was some extreme shit. He learned more from that key move than if I had taught him a variety of physical game moves.

Spending Time on the Unnecessary

Salsa dancers spend lots of time in class when it is not needed anymore. After you learn a couple of moves and you can do the basics it is time to develop your personal style. No need to take more classes may be, sparingly. I know girls in my former class who can’t still dance after 3 years. It is a pain to dance with them. Why? Too much time in class, little dance floor time. As you grow, more time should be spent practicing and less on class-read theory for pick up. Most dancing knowledge will figure itself out.

Guys in the game tend to have it backwards. It is a redundancy for me to find that 90 percent of bc students fall in this category prior to program. I always hear “I have spent 2 years reading this thing, but I have done zero or almost no approaching”. Then after a night of approaching on program, they say, “I never thought it was so simple”. It is simple but not easy. The moves are simple if you know what you are doing.

It is what you don’t see that is more important.

List of things in the world you don’t see but are essential.
. Electricity
. Heart pumping
. Heat
. Air

Just to name a few.

Internals for the game are like oxygen. You can’t survive long without it. At some point you will crack. Foundations are not in place. 90-10 rule at work: 10 percent of communication is the actual words, the rest like tonality, body language, etc., are more important. They all come from inside, how comfortable you are, how happy you feel. A comfortable dude will be naturally loud since he can’t see potential threats in the environment. He is not afraid to draw attention onto himself.

4 or 5 years ago as teachers we assumed students had a solid inner system down so we focused more on the outer side of the game. That was a bad assumption-how can you be loud without being truly confident. We rectified a long time ago. Results soared when we switch focus to the necessary, not the urgent.

Why is it so neglected?

Well, you don’t see it. It is not tangible so it calls no attention on to it. Fear cannot be seen. You cannot even tell from the look of a guy’s face if he is afraid. It is hard to say. The naked eye deceives you. Need to trust instinct.



“You don’t need to know when you got instinct”, Reservoir Dogs. You can say that again.

We are not used to listen to that little voice in our heads otherwise called “instinct”. It is our wiser self speaking to us. That’s a skill you need to develop. A very important one.

Involutions

In the pre historic times of pick up, teaching was reduced to pure NLP and incantations to a bunch of guys in a closed room.

Hypnotize



This being so gay we swung the pendulum all the way to outer game-tactics, lines, routines, etc. Welcome to the world of the trickster. A charlatan armoured with props and pick up arsenal of lines and “tool box”.

Trickery

Just 2 or 3 years ago the pendulum swung again, this time back to the centre. This is where we are at right now. Where do we go from here?

Always a pleasure reading your articles.  Is there a ratio of the amount of time and effort you should spend on your inner game in proportion to your outer game?
