Hey there!

I've just returned from the epic Vegas events, which of course were completely insane.

Got into all sorts of trouble -- from getting it on with girls to fist fights to eating in bomb ass restaursnts to students getting laid -- all par for the course for a weekend in motherfucken Vegas.

I've got a brand new 2 hour video for you today:  The Truth About Success 2.

We'll get into that in a second, but I also wanted to mention that I have programs coming up in the following cities.

April 26, 2012: Washington DC (with Alexander)
May 3, 2012: Boston (with Julien)
May 17, 2012: Austin (with Julien)
May 31, 2012: Atlanta (with Alexander)
June 14, 2012: Seattle (with Alexander)

www.rsdfreetour.com / www.rsdhotseat.com / www.rsdbootcamp.com

The Washington DC Bootcamp is full but the Free Tour and Hot Seat are good to go.  The rest of the cities still have space on Bootcamp as well.

As a sidenote I always bump into guys in different cities in the clubs and they're like "HOLY FUCKEN SHIT TYLER YOU'RE HERE!!" and I'll say "Uhh yeah man I did a free event earlier today, you should've come out..."

And they'll say "Well yeah but I know sales, that's like the sales pitch one right?"  And NO it's not the fucking sales pitch WTF??!!

As of right now and the foreseeable future, at RSD we don't do "hard sales".  I realize that people love what we do and it's not necessary because people will wind up taking programs eventually anyway.  I'll mention the programs for about 5 minutes out of a 3 hour event, so it's fully reasonable and legit.

It's actually a less effective approach for us to hard sell as of now (maybe if the movie "The Game" came out and we had tons of dabblers in the room, but not right now...) because we have so much free content online that if someone doesn't want to do a program with us now, a kick ass event will make them want to check out the content and want to take a program later.

So hell yes you should attend the Free Tour, it's absolutely ridiculous to miss it as it's a kick ass FREE event.  Many guys drive in a few hours for it and are always totally psyched.

Again check out www.rsdfreetour.com and see if your city is on the list!  Do it now while it's hot on your mind!

The other "no brainer" is the Hot Seat because with the current bonus day format (which won't be around much longer) it's over the top loaded with lifechanging value that has years of work put into it, while being weirdly inexpensive.

It's at www.rsdhotseat.com so take a quick look at the site and see if this is something you think will change your game.  Someday these won't be being run and you'll be sad you failed to pull the trigger on it.  Whereas conversely you can do this NOW and enjoy the benefits, and be part of something very cool.

Anyway let's get on to today's video, I wanted to chastise any dabblers a bit after having quite a few people bump into me in Vegas who missed out, while simultaneously being into the game and I see them getting half assed results with girls in the club.  You can ALWAYS be doing better.  I'll see you at the events!

<>==================================<>

So we're cracking into the new 2 hour video, which is the follow up to the original "Truth About Success" clip from a few months back.

The backstory is this...

A few months ago I was doing the Hot Seat bonus day and someone asked me about success.  I was so underslept that I blurted out a lot of ideas I personally thought were too intense for the PUA community, since frankly most people are delusional about how success works and if you don't ease them into it gradually they freak oiut.

I'm a full on gangster and basically willing to go full on to whatever I apply myself to.  This is a personal standard that I've had for years and I view people who don't have this as weak willed and basically "failure examples" of what I don't want to become.  Any excuse for not achieving what you want out of life I view as a joke.

There's areas in my life that I want to half ass because I'm not overly interested, but I know I'm going to dominate in the areas I focus on because this is what I believe I was put on the earth to do.  That being the case I think about success, dream about success, and breath success 24 hours a day.

My only breaks are deliberate and pre-planned.  They include having sex with hot women, getting into the outdoors, eating good food, and spending time with family and friends.  Other than that I believe I have a limited time to accomplish my life mission and would sacrifice anything to see it complete.

I think what most people think will make them succeed is bizarre and ridiculous.  I know what it takes and in the original "Truth About Success" video made it pretty clear.

Anyway it turned out people were into it, so a few months later after the Hot Seat 2 launch I was in the mood to go on further bizarre rants, and got into the topic of success at both the NYC and Miami Free Tours.

I find that whatever I'm feeling at the time, I like to talk about at the events.  If I'm in a good mood I talk about fun stuff, if I'm clowning around I make the video hilarious, and if I'm overworked I like to about how people are pussies for not working enough and go on maniacal rants. :)

There's different sides to everyone, and I have a well cultivated "Get it fucking done..." side to my personality that comes out when it needs to.  It has it's own sets of beliefs that don't necessarily reflect how I feel about life when I'm more balanced, but it works to get the damned job complete.

While recording this video I was still "in" that personality from the months it took me to prepare the launch for the Hot Seat 2.

Incidentally I still feel that i haven't physically and mentally recovered from that launch.  My adreneline is still on slight perma-trickle because I pushed it past the limit, and I'll likely need to spend a few days looking at a wall and doing nothing to turn it off.  I sort of screwed up there, but at least I've learned where the limit is, and it's going to challenge me to learn new tricks to control that aspect of my health.

Since the launch my game hasn't been quite as good, except for a few furious nights where I raged through the most epic nights of my life.  I've had a bunch of *ahem* successes but they've been by raw willpower alone since nothing will stop me if I put my head into it.  But it was getting smoother and smoother for a while there, both with speaking and with game, and I think I'll need to relax more to get back into that zone.

Alright so without further rambling we'll get into it here...

CLICK THIS VIDEO RIGHT NOW TO WATCH "THE TRUTH ABOUT SUCCESS 2" AND SEE ME FULLY GO OFF FOR SEVERAL HOURS ON THE TOPIC OF HOW TO BE A CHAMP...


So hopefully you got a lot of value out of this... 

There was a question in the Youtube comments that asked if work avoidance could be classified as "seeking adventure" as opposed to being lazy.  I'd say that if someone comes up with a way to achieve passive income and uses that time to go out and do cool shit like travel, then hell yeah it's a good idea.

It's just that you do this for periods of time, then get back to work.  Don't assume the system you build is going to provide passive income for life because things change and you'll be left a diminished work ethic and an inability to get something new going to sustain yourself.

Oh yeah, and here's the first video in case you didn't see it btw...


Interestingly, the self help company I have planned won't explain success like this.

I'd build on a proper set of explainations before going into this sort of thing.  I have it all planned out in my head and keep building on it every day.

Just cracking into ideas like this is fun for the RSD list, but not something I'd to relate to someone who isn't familiar.  It's all about explaining ideas at someone's paradigm, and then building on their understandings as to why something is worth their time to learn.

<>===========================<>

Anyway I've always believed that I had a higher purpose for as long as I remember, even at 3 years old.  I remember seeing those old tv commercials of little foreign kids starving to death, or seeing poverty or people who weren't mentally well, and not understanding why people didn't make it their full time job to change all of that.

My problem was that my mind was overly suseptible to taking on the pain of my environment, so I was overly infected with negative energy to the point I couldn't really experience happiness.  This strengthened my resolve to grow into an adult who would have a positive influence and that became my criteria for success in my life.

Over time I learned that to have any influence you have to FIRST "make yourself strong".  There is no making others strong before you do so yourself, and you have to embody the change you with to see outside of yourself.  This is why I knew I had to become better than I was.

I have never believed that humans are powerless, and in fact I think humans have a ton of power to create change.  I believe that if you have good intentions that you transcend the limitations that seem to be placed upon you and become something more than you appear.

My brain has never been interested in the diversions that most people find entertaining, beyond little formalities to build rapport with people who I work with to get things done.  I've always believed in seeing what needs to be done and fucking doing it, zero excuses.

I don't believe that anyone can tell me the nature of life or the universe, and that ultimately we all live with this mystery.  But I DO believe that we can observe laws of cause and effect in life, and that if we align ourselves with the actions that we're put here to do that we benefit tremendously.

This is what I foresee human beings having to do in the future as the world becomes more complex, and I'm not sure what's possible but if I die knowing that I tried my best I'd have a smile on my face.  I've been given a lot in my life and I really couldn't ask for anything more, so anything I get at this point is a bonus.  I just want to become amazing at what I do and embody the values that I care about, that's about it.

Maybe it's from seeing people whine and cry themselves to sleep ove their petty problems, I just got so sick of seeing people suffer from their own self absorption.

Make yourself strong.  Do this relentlessly.  Then expand your circle of concerns.  All of your problems will seemingly go away.  You'll be out of the "trance" that you're in right now, and experience life to a richer degree.

<>======================================<>

I also really loved this Kobe Bryant video I found recently, which is loaded with all sorts of emotional button pushing for guys, such as Kobe talking about blowing through the wall and various yelling from the movie "300".

I thought it would be funny to put in here as well...


It's hard for me to imagine the Lakers winning the championship this year, with the intense competition, but I think next year if they make some better bench acquisitions they could have a decent chance.

But you never know.  If Kobe did it this year with his current team, it would be totally insane.

Hope you enjoyed that one as well.  And for good measure, I'll throw in another great video on the topic of travelling from scarcity to abundance -- ie: "making yourself strong".


Okay so that's enough videos, but hopefully it makes the point. :)

<>====================================================<>

Alright I am.............out of here!

Let me know your thoughts on the new video --> how does this change your perspective, and apply to YOUR OWN life??

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!!

how does this change your perspective, and apply to YOUR OWN life??

A lot of this post resonates very deeply with me.  I feel that I am at a point where I have a lot of the 'basics' down - work ethic, eating healthy, balancing with friends/family.  And so, my perspective changed when you suggested at the very end of the article to expand your circle of concerns.  When I was younger, I was concerned with all of the blindness we see in the world, and with how to convince richer people to give to poorer people.  At some point, the pendulum swung the other way and I blocked out feeding the starving (etc) because I both wanted to make myself stronger and rationalized that I didn't need to help now because the problems in our world are so big.  However, at the advanced age of 26, haha jk guys, my beliefs are somewhere in the middle:
I will do what I can to help those around me
I am 'ready' to give 80% of what I have to others (my presence and effort to help them)
I will continue focussing 10% on self growth and 10% on maintining my strength so that I can help others

So, in application in my own life, I will keep working to celebrate small victories.  I will think ahead to the future, so that I can guestimate a trajectory for success (how many people can I serve in 2020? 2030?).

Tyler-  This video really resonated with me.  I was going to tell you this in NY....Something that I wouldve liked for you to but in better terms is the minimizing time and effort thing.  I think that you should mention the fact that minimizing time and effort is irrelevant but maximizing value you get out of your effort and being as efficient and effective as possible is essential and not looking at time and effort as such a finite resource, rather it is the thing that we actually have a lot of.

This article reminds me the quote from the book "The War of Art " by Steven Pressfield.

"Are you a born writer, were you put on earth to be a painter, a scientist, an apostle of peace. In the end the question can only be answered by action. Do it or don't do it. It might help you to think of it this way. If you were meant to cure cancer or write a symphony or crack cold fusion and you don't do it. You'll not only hurt yourself even, yourself. You hurt your children, you hurt me, you hurt the planet. You shame the angels who watch over you and you spite the almighty who created you and only you contain your unique gifts for the sole pupose of nudging the human race one millimeter further along in its path back to God. Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the the actor, its a gift to the world and every being in it. Don't cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you've got"

I had been involved in a lot of volunteer activities lately, and I noticed that many of them, that are pure giving value guys that do the work just for the purpose of passionely helping others, do share the same vibe you see from Owen. Owen is just managing his company but at the same time he truly does care to help people. I hope people see this and support him.

 just some props
really enjoyed this one.

as a side note i like how the first 45 minutes focus on actual what to do and actual mindsets to embody it was also really on point  and consise
you sometimes get lost in describing what not to do( like you kinda did in the other part) while ultimately its about informing people on how to snap out and what they should do. not   creating a vivid picture of being lame.

im overly sensitive to that tho.
anyway really liked it  really enjoyed the content

Tyler - great stuff. On point as shit!

So many people get stuck in that downward spiral, or even just in the never-never land of their comfort zone. They feel bored, depressed, and unfulfilled. They deal with it by taking the "easy way out", through distractions or self-sedation. Each beer, or bong-hit, or night spent surfing porn, is a tiny step on the downward path of weakness and despair. The way up is to take the harder path, to fully feel the underlying discomfort and let it build and get clearer, until the urge to take right action is irresistable.

Anyone have any resources (books etc) that are good for getting out of that self-perpetuating cycle of doing nothing with yourself? So you can reverse the momentum and use it to enhance your life?

Thanks

 Just logged in to give you some feedback on the vid, Tyler:

GREAT FUCKING JOB!  Direct, to the point, no bullshit.  We in the RSDNATION can handle obscure and taboo topics, so please don't hesitate to lay the smackdown of truth on us.

You're a philosophic dude, Tyler, and I think you should DEFINITELY merge your intellect and understanding of society with your work in the future.

Look forward to more.

 Loving this 2 hr video! Definitely forwarding it on to my brother who is married, but very career oriented. Man I can't wait to hear you talk about all the other amazing concepts brewing up in your mind now and in the future (non-pick up related, but more life in general). I tend to really get glued to anything you talk about that can be both applied to pick up and other aspects of working with life. I actually apply much of what you say to school and academics, which is one of my biggest hurdles unrelated to my emotions, pickup, exercise, etc.

I resent the fact that you don't post "how to" material on the internet.

There is a very loyal base of followers of rsd on the internet and I believe they deserve a bit of a better treatment. It was rather dissapointing when your first free infield footage was not posted on RSDN but on AskMen, despite the fact people on here had been begging for ages to see some infield footage. That wasn't cool.

We would appreciate if you had more consideration for your internet followers, man.

Tyler...

If ever you posted a great article, this is it!! FML I'm a medical student so I have to hustle so hard. So hard. Failure is a default here but one thing that I love about it is that I realize that failure is amazing. It's the most humbling experience I've ever had. Whether it was pimping, studying or dj'ing, had I not failed I would never have actively decided to get into that beastmode when need be and own it.  Just everyday, committing to that 0.01% change and making sure everyday I push to make that change, Work like a so I'll one day live like a king. I love it.

Outcome dependance means nothing if the journey is the biggest gift of all...

The Game is the reason why I'll qualify in a few years!!

Tyler You're my hero!!!

 Jesus, incredible video man.

I don't know if you follow Ciaran's blog, but he's been basically digging into the same areas you are in regards to all this lies and rationalization stuff, if you're curious:  http://ruthlesstruthdotcom.blogspot.com/2011/11/till-experience-change-thy-mind.html

I've definitely been noticing the whole "real goals keep you in check with reality" thing. Makes retardally simple sense too - if you've got some fantasy dream, like "picking up women will make me a permanantly cool and happy person", then the only way to ever feel like you're making progress is to lie to yourself. Fantasy goals need fantasy support.

Real goals? If you go for one of those you'll have to keep your fantasys in check, because they'll cripple your ability to accurately measure your progress.

I dig it.

Thank you Owen,


this post was EXACTLY what I needed, I have to point the finger at myself, grow stronger, become a better person and make my parents proud again! I haven't been able to love myself in a long time, but RSD has been a great part of my comeback in my life, to grow and become strong again and manage things. I dislike the victim mentality and my cowardly disposition...

Thank you!

I completely disagree, my personal experience says otherwise.

You will push yourself in an area to the to the point that your results start getting worse and worse, and not only you won't enjoy the challenge anymore, but also do serious damage to your health.

This will happen especially if you adopt this "if I don't do this, I suck" mindset or "other people that don't push themselves suck" mindset which only accelerates the process, since failures will always come at some point and this mindset will reinforce those failures a lot. (Maybe pickup is an exception?)

I am very curious though, about which kind of daily little exercises you are talking about that actually help you grow and that growth actually "stays" there, since I think most of us here have a very good diet already, go to the gym, also have some kind of diary or some self-assessment daily exercise already and yet here we are, in this forum.

I appreciate your blog, just logged on to comment on this blog. we have a very similar mindset, you are more active. I envy you for finding help at 21. so lucky.
I have failed 3 businesses and succeeded in one and now I've started 5th. I'm my worst sceptic. I always do the harshest view on my business as I will be broke in next month
it is challenging and exciting at the same time and I have to work 9 hours a day to provide funds for my business and read books and no free time. debt to the banks and no money. ha ha . doesn't matter if I succeed or not, I have to do what I have to do. period.
you have some weird ideas though, but who am I kidding? all of us do. LOL

I've heard you used "business model" in your speech. liked it. I am using reciprocity as main method too. although it's slow.
if my business takes off, I'll come to thank you personally.

in any case, enjoy listening to your videos and reading your blogs, keep up the good work.

This video actually scared the fucking shit out of me....

The traits you talk about in the 2nd half of video web of lies etc sums up alot of people I know and their attitudes to life, and I used to fucking do it myself (I'm not goddamned saint I catch myself trying to do it daily unconciously but it's a constant life long process) until I hit a point of change 3 years ago.

Fucking rediculous video, absolutely so fucking rediculous it's not even funny how accurate it is.

One complaint though, you don't mention enough about the books you've read (You have about diet ones but just general motivation/ business books and success mindset books basically), or maybe you have on the forums I don't know. But I want to try make it my goal when not doing "something" I pick up a book a relax instead of just fucking sitting there watching retarded shit on tv. So I really want to get ahold of more of the books you've read cause i'm sure they are good.

im 21 and relatively new to this, but the game recently inspired my drive to be successful at a crazy time... my uncle is 38 and just got locked up for child support, the court wants 2 g's to let him go and nobody has it... he's been in that durrr mode for the past year and a half... i could never let that be me, and i feel like game has forced me to mature alot faster than everyone else my age, 18 - 21 year olds are fuckin retarded btw lol..

ive gotten into sales n used game to improve my sales n sales to improve my game..

im demooooooooooooollishing my goals n progressing fast as hell.. little "Facebook posts" and status updates seem to not really resonate with how good i feel.. the level of "i told you so" i feel for acomplishing this type of shit at this age is just too much lol.. (i think i might be a little on the immature end for success right now, but i still bang it out) I'm starting to realize that too many "good emotions" leads to complacency in the long term.

im adjusting my sleep schedule, spending habits, diet.. its all kinda leaning out in the name of progress..

videos like these make me feel like im not the only one out here doing this shit..

keep goinnnnnnnggggggg

Hey Tyler, dig this post.  All the emphesis on action and pushing to get shit done, has really been resonating with me.  Incidentally, I just viewed this TED talk.

http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/en/srikumar_rao_plug_into_your_hard_wired_...

Though you'd appriciate it.  It's about being process oriented rather than outcome oriented, and it's relation to happiness.  It's a general take on the whole intent and freedom form outcome stuff.

Looking forward to the freetour and hotseat in Hawaii this summer!

 Over the Christmas period, I reverted to the same old bullshit feeling-sorry-for-myself mindsets that used to torment me when I was younger. This time, it hurt me even more because I thought I'd left those days behind.

Then, almost by accident, I discovered the teachings of Adyashanti (you guys who are Tolle readers may have heard of him). Slowly, my peace of mind returned. Echoing what Tyler said in this video: isn't it funny how the universe often directs you towards something, or drops something into your lap to help you or to teach you a valuable lesson.

The lesson it taught me was to be more humble, and not to take for granted that my old place of thinking and my old behaviours were places that I could possible ever return to and that I was above all that.

Tyler's speech here, perfectly aligns with Adyashanti's teachings and I am pretty sure the universe directed me to this video for exactly the same reason.

I am a 48 year old man, and I am so glad that one day, three years ago, I stumbled upon this site - it has helped me in my life unmeasureably.

Thank you.  These insights into your way of thinking are pure gold.  I looked at my life from this perspective and have already made powerful changes.
