Hey there, it's Todd.

No… Wait…

Goodmorniiiiing RSDNatiiiioooon!!!

Half asleep in Philly and I thought I’d indulge in a Robin Williams-esque moment. Welcome to a crystallized instant in the life of an instructor and the constant quest for sleep amid travel, adventure, nightlife and sex.

I have two short but amazing videos for you guys today, but before I get into that let’s talk about ME damnit! ;)

On minimal sleep for the past three days and I have another crazy one planned for today. Mainly I’m giving a speech for the Philadelphia Inner Circle chapter. (For information on Inner Circle which is launching worldwide on Aug 29 check out http://www.rsdinnercircle.com ).

I’m really looking forward to this speech as Philly is one of the smaller test markets I’m running and I know many of the attendees personally from the recent bootcamps, free tours, and hotseats we’ve done here.

Aside from that, I’ll be shooting another video blog for you guys and also doing an interview with a college professor on the topic of “Manliness and Masculinity”. The title sounds way too politically correct for me, but I think it’ll be a fun topic for content generation and plus, how often does one get the opportunity to be reputable and academically rigorous!

The first video I’m bringing you guys is on the simple but important topics of “Dumbing it Down In-Field” and “How Learning Game is Bad for Game”. Funny enough every girl who knows me seems to think this topic is based on her, and in some ways they’re all right. And for the girls who I’m sure are stalking me through my articles, there is a difference between “all right” and “alright”… and you’re more than just alright ;).

The original motivation for this article comes from my high school math teacher. On the AP Calculus exam, he taught us, any answer in a proper form is correct… The expression does not need to be simplified, nor do fractions need to be reduced. So, once the answer works JUST LEAVE IT ALONE; no need to make it prettier. And making a mistake in simplifying would be tragic for your score… a phenomenon he referred to as a UDI or “Unnecessary Display of Ignorance”.

In that spirit, rather than try for the perfect intro to the video, I’ll just “Dumb it Down” myself and give it to you. By the way, the weird flashes of light you see moving through the video are either rain drops, or the manifestation of my godlike inner game… you can decide for yourself which:



So stop reading right now, put down the mouse and get in-field… emulate the idiot!

No!... Wait!... Come back! Finish my article first! I’ve got more great information for you!

The second video for today features none other than Papa, the genius and mastermind behind Inner Circle, himself. In the video he talks about the importance of wingmen and a peer group in developing game. He also touches on lifestyle… which is a topic on which he is an UNDENIABLE world authority.

Over the past year, Papa has been setting up beta-test versions of Inner Circle all around the world, and what he has found in the successful chapters has been some of the most inspiring stuff we’ve seen in a long time in terms of developing community, lifestyle, and game as well.

The members of these chapters have taken the information that we’ve given them and truly created something special… a brotherhood that extends far beyond just women and going out.

On a personal level I cannot emphasize to you enough the fact that most of the coolest (and most successful) people I’ve ever met have been affiliated with RSD in one way or another.

As an instructor, one of the biggest “perks” I receive is actually the opportunity to interact with these people on a regular basis. Now, with Inner Circle, we’re finally bringing that to you as well!

Obviously with the new Inner Circle, we’re bringing you tons of tangible value in the form of videos, interaction with instructors, missions, assignments, parties, personalized feedback etc.

see http://www.rsdinnercircle.com for more info

… but the greatest value of Inner Circle might be the “intangible” of the communities you develop and the lifelong friends you will make in your home cities and around the world as a result of this program.

I’ve never seen such amazing synergy as in the successful Inner Circle chapters we are currently running!

One other thing you might find interesting in this video is how terrible my speaking is in the lead in. I definitely cringed when looking at it, but it’s probably good for you guys to see.

The first video was shot a couple days ago. This one was shot about a month and a half ago. The difference just goes to show what type of progress is possible when you focus on an area of your life. So please let that be motivational rather than distracting!

ENJOY!

I love the comparison we both make to Project Hollywood and the RSD instructor training programs. This is literally so much like those experiences in terms of having a peer group that constantly pushes you outside your comfort zone and forces you to step up and improve as a man. This is the program I wish I had twelve years ago when I started out in the game!

Are you as excited about Inner Circle as I am!? Just THREE WEEKS UNTIL THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH.

Papa and I have been planning out the world special events for the upcoming year and they are going to be AMAZING! I can personally guarantee that anyone who gets involved and participates on an ongoing basis will be fundamentally changed as a person and also have the most fun and exciting year of your life.

Ok, time for me to get on with my crazy day and creating more videos for you guys. I have a few seminar events over the next couple of weeks, so hopefully I’ll be able to get you some good long clips. After that, it’s off to WORLD SUMMIT, and then the launch of INNER CIRCLE. Exciting times!

‘Till next time,

-Todd

It seems like every time I internalize a new epiphany its reinforced a couple days later by one of the instructor videos. my best approaches happen when im thinking of absolutely nothing before I approach.

Great advice Todd. Not to say that Owen and Julien aren't great at what they do but I feel sometimes or a lot of the time their in field videos are very fast paced, and kind of make the viewer think that everything has to be fast moving, like talking, not stopping for air, moving to another girl instantly after the previous one.....a lot of naturals are more slow paced....not very slow, but definitely slower. And I feel like it sometimes causes a misperception to the viewers about the pace of interactions and behavior throughout the night. But your advice is very good.

Awesome vid. Brad's already mentioned how naturals are so successful because most of those guys have MASSIVE blind spots. They're so stupid, they don’t even recognize when things aren’t going their way. Yet somehow their reality wins out and people fall into their frame. So how do you become the natural? Self-trust.
- Know that you are the coolest motherfucker on this plant and everything you do is DHV (quit pretending to be a high value dude e.g. "I''m not going to compromise my comfort just to talk to a girl" as opposed to simply being high value e.g. "Damn, I want to get up on that girl. I'll persue her forever")
- View everything the women does as an indication that she likes you
The girl says, “Fuck you!” He interprets it as her playing hard to get.
She says, “Your shirt is gay!” He thinks she is flirting.
And the girl just falls into that frame.
It’s the old social dynamics self fulfilling prophecy. It also prevents you from being stressed out over the girls reactions. Allowing you to proactively lead the interactions in a positive direction.

@Todd nice vid bro. Keep it up, you are talking about very interesting stuff in your vids;)

 I dont wanna diss this, but im a bit skeptical about the inner circle. Its very good 2 have a group who motivates eachother... but why would you pay so that you could get challenges  from instructors. If you rlly want 2 become good you are going 2 challenge yourself. And about the feedback..thats great. But we have a whole RSDNation here who helps eachother and the articles are helping allot to. We alrdy have inner circles on the forums, so i dont see the value its adding. It hope it will be way better than im expecting, but i guess it will because RSD blows my mind 9/10 times ! Succes guys!

Awesome vid Todd!!

I was just thinking about the subjects you told in the vid the last couple days.

Like knowing that my state is fucked up will lead to a more fucked up state.

Game was so simple when I didn´t know all the game vocabulaire ;)

peace
