Rockin the lil pic of Jeff, Brad, and myself in Chicago last night.  Brad was drunk and pretty damned hilarious.

Anyway Jeff is hitting up his LAST UNITED STATES DATE for Free Tour and Hot Seat:  NEW YORK CITY!!

I'll be teaching the Free Tour and Bootcamp with Jeff (and Julien!) as well -- and a FREE FULL DAY SEMINAR ON SUNDAY for anyone who attends the Jeffy Hot Seat.  If you live in the USA (or anywhere in the world for that matter) and want to get a full two days of seminar for the price of one, hit up up the New York events.

New York Free Tour, Hot Seat, and Bootcamp:  October 20 - 23, 2011

www.jeffyfreetour.com / www.jeffyhotseat.com / www.rsdbootcamp.com

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

Anyway I'm sitting here after a crazy weekend in Chicago on a Monday morning, about to shoot over to Boston for a corporate event and then off to New York!!

Autumn in NYC is always pretty amazing, so obviously very psyched. :)

I'm going to make today's article really short because I'm a lil underslept and got a lot going on.  I always figure that SOMETHING is better than NOTHING and a 15 minute video is pretty sweet so I'm just going to slam it up.

This is from the Honolulu Free Tour where I talked to a small audience about why PAIN is necessary to transform and succeed -- there's some very powerful ideas hidden in here you'll definitely want to see.

CLICK THIS VIDEO RIGHT NOW TO LEARN SECRETS ABOUT HOW VETERANS OF THE GAME THINK ABOUT PAIN AND TRANSLATE IT INTO MASSIVE SUCCESS...



This is a topic that's meant a LOT to me personally, and I hope you'll take these lessons on board.

Funny enough I have sooooo much sick video content coming out over the next few months I feel like this was the weakest out of the stash.  What did you think?

It was a small audience and they were a lil unresponsive (probably felt shy in a small group...) so I got it into my thick head that I was just going to hammer them with silliness and have fun whether they were or not.  In retrospect though I would've probably been a lil more relaxed and just related to them more on the level of where they were at.  There's a video I did on a similar topic actually that would've been more appropriate -- I'll post it below.

(Ultimately you LEARN by trying again and again and gathering experience right?  The video tracks my progress as a speaker -- and I'm sure you got some good value regardless...)

This is one of my fav vids I've recorded on the topic of the longterm journey -- check this out!



(I think this offers a cool expansion on the topic and makes for a good one-two punch...)

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

I also posted a new article in the forum this week which if you haven't read you may want to check out.  It's also correlated to the videos so may as well post it here as well. :)

This is for anyone who isn't getting the results they want. For anyone who isn't pulling the type of girls they want to pull. For anyone who gets blown out way too much and goes home feeling bad.

You just CARE too much.

You GIVE A FUCK if the girl talks to you.

It would make you feel GOOD if she'd just be NICE.

And DAMMIT you're going out to meet girls and what's wrong with that? Why can't people just be friendly to one another? Why can't people treat one another with respect?

Here's why...

It's not like YOU are going up to all these physically UNATTRACTIVE girls and wanting them to like you. You're going up to HOT girls and wanting them to like you. THEREFORE YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN THE GIRL WHO BLOWS YOU OFF BECAUSE YOU'RE RESPONDING TOWARDS VALUE AS WELL. So stop being all mad and taking it personally that girls aren't nice to you because everyone just does what they do and there's no need to judge it -- simply make the choice to become happy in your own skin.

Girls (fully unconsciously...not consciously AT ALL...) want the guy who is already getting laid, already has tons of girls chasing him, needs absolutely nothing from her. Yeah he's attracted to her and thinks she's hot but ultimately he really doesn't give a fuck -- there's just too many hot girls and he's overstimulated and oversexed regardless.

The fact that you CARE if she talks to you or not signals to her that you aren't one of those guys. You're the guy who is NOT getting laid by hot girls. You're the guy who OTHER GIRLS DO NOT LIKE AND THEREFORE *SHE* SHOULD NOT LIKE.

So how do you stop?

Build social momentum, lifestyle momentum, and sex life momentum.

If you're a newbie who SUCKS because YOU CARE if girls are nice to you........then you may wanna start SMALL and then BUILD IT UP over time.

Go out and make out with a cute fat girl who is willing. It's easy just walk up and start yammering away as you put your face close to her, she'll giggle that you're doing it, and keep trying to make out with her as you blather away and she giggles until she's cool with it.

It may not be something to write home about, but let's be real here, if you're a newbie who isn't pulling girls you'll feel a boost in your emotional state.

Then use that to make you not give a fuck on a girl who is a lil more attractive. Make out with her too. Then use this emotional state to NOT CARE as you go around the venue talking to lots of people, and BECAUSE YOU DO NOT CARE people will start being a lot nicer to you because they respond to the "high value" of you "just being yourself" -- ie: having your own fun and not giving a fuck.

As the night progresses keep building up your emotional state. And because you've built your own emotional state you simply DO NOT CARE. All you want to do is have so much fun and amuse yourself, talk to lots of fun people, have a great time.

Then go up to the hottest girl in the club. Do exactly what you did on the fat girl and okay cutie girls. Makeout with her too. Yell and scream at her. Say "You're done get the fuck out of here! You're done in this town get the fuck out!" Then let her walk away confused and pull her back "Fight for me girl! I'm worth it! Don't have an ego about this! Fight for me!"

Take her to the corner and makeout with her more, stimulate her if she's okay with it and seems to like it, then drag her home and fuck. Do this every single night for a month with varying degrees of success -- sometimes you ride the wave of awesomeness and pull a few nights in a row, sometimes you hit a rough patch because as your self image starts to view you as this new awesome guy with girls you START TO CARE AGAIN AND THEREFORE SUCK.

Use this momentum building in your life as well. Build up your body and health and feel more and more awesome. Build up what you're doing at work so you feel more and more awesome. Do meditation every day and feel amazing and more amazing. Have fun and have fun friends, date the girls you want to date, read great books and enjoy life.

As you do this more and more, you build ABUNDANCE and therefore are a ROBUST individual as opposed to a FRAGILE one who posts threads on RSD Nation about how you can't get laid and you think it's because you're depressed or because of your looks. Keep working at it until you get it. Don't worry if you hit a rough patch just allow yourself to go through it and allow it to help you lose your attachment to people being nice to you. Then as you continue on it just gets better and better, and now you can offer value to OTHER PEOPLE because your'e just a cooler individual who is happy in his own skin and who people love and respect.

Over time you realize.......it doesn't even matter if you're getting laid a lot or not because that will come and go, but you can feel the sense of abundance and inner happiness just by being present to the moment and feeling the joy of this brief life. And then you no longer rely on this type of momentum as much. In the meantime though study the articles and videos RSD puts out and all that, and take massive action simultaneously to build up the shit out of your personal momentum -- keep improving at the ART of ENJOYING LIFE.

Try it!! Have fun!! Let me know what you think!!

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

Anyway keep your eyes open for some pretty amazing stuff I have coming over the coming months.

Austin, Atlanta, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago Free Tours.  A few of my corporate speaches.  Video blogs shot in various cool spots I've been fortunate to visit.  There's been a LOT going on!!

I'm really psyched about these and it's going to take things to the next level.  Miss you guys in Los Angles I'll see you soon!!  Hit me up in Hawaii at the end of the month if you have time to join.

And let me know what you think of the video as well!!  Did you gain any new perspective?  What similar experiences have you had?  I want to know!!

Ey Tyler do you consider "awakening" or "enlightenment" to be the same as "Spiritual Adulthood" ?

LOVED this video!

Hilarious :-)

I actually enjoy  it so much (as soooooo many other guys here do) when Owen talks about his blowouts/failures/shitty nights and being punked, etc...

Why?! Because this dude who talks about his grueling experiences is actually the BEST in the whole world!
This duality is so inspiring, so appealing and encourging.

Keep it up man!

That was BY QUITE A LONG WAY my favourite video tyler's put out. You must have been pretty in the zone at this point in your talk. Really liked it. I also like the length of this video. I think seperate videos each covering one specific point helps internalise the main message better than a long ass video with many 'take home' messages. Especially when it comes to watching the videos back, maybe a few months after you first put them out - it's nice to know what it is exactly that's gonna be covered in the video you're about to watch.

The way I interpreted this video is: Experience is king. Even when something bad happens, it's helping you become more awesome and the glory will come another time.

Keep it up Tyler. You're wisdom is helping my game and life in general a hella of a lot.

Thanks again.

Casa.

I personally like your more chilled out vibe with the super funny shit mixed in, so this video dint really apeal to me because I felt like you wernt being what im use to seeing of you and it turned me off. kept and open mind though and could styll relate.. I gotta remember too this is all free so who am I to complaine :P

ps, some people get turned off by swearing (i dont give a fuck) but I think you could cut the swearing by a third, almost feels like its beign used to hype state uncosiously...

REGARDLESS I still think its quality and if it was someones first time hearing you, theyd still love you

Nice vibe to the article.

I love how this relates to not micro managing what THAT ONE GIRL that you like feels about you. Or that one cool friend. When in intermediate purgatory you just got to put your head down and fight out of it. fight for the skill.

Who cares about the 1 girl, or even the group of girls you're talking to when you can go out and shut them all out and work on yourself.

How can Tyler ever not consider him high-value when he creates high value himself, with his own voice and brings it to thousands every week?

A few days ago I messed up a set, had the pain and learned alot from it omg!

There was 1 girl and 2 guys. When she was alone it went ok. Somehow I left the set for a moment, no idea anymore why I did that. Later on I came back again and the 2 guys where back. I normally forget to entertain everyone. I said to the girl, is this your boyfriend??? She said no, and because I had to entertain the guy I was suddenly talking to him lmfao. She even looked angry at me haha. The timing was so stupid and I don't have the calibration yet! She misunderstood this so I suddenly went to talk to her and said I liked her!  It was like a rollercoaster smashing into a wall.

She liked it and smiled, but later stepped aside, then I got the look when I tried sarging again and the guys dragged her away while she was testing me. Like "defending her". Both where chodes in the friendzone. Tried one more time and she ran away a bit more. Later she came back a bit dancing to me and flirting, I did not know what to do. 

Later on a friend who had social acceptance because of his work there was talking to me, then she got more interested in me and kept looking back to me. I was honestly too scared to get hit by those 2 angry guys. Too bad I don't have the skills yet, but I will keep doing it till I finally get it done. Thanks for the inspiration.

 This reminds me of the concept of "emotional intelligence", and having the mindset of "so what?" 

Like so what if I slobber on that solid 10 at the bar. So what if I pass out while approaching the stripper: I will get some good rest anyway. And so then it is ok to make mistakes; I can reevaluate when needed and change some stuff up, to try to improve. 

So it's like 1) accept the current situation,  2) reevaluate and improve when needed. 

And even when I go out for a night, and realize that I totally fucked up and was resisting the situations, it is fine because, so what? It's a good time for reevaluation.

 Hey Owen,

This a hugely valuable video, thank you for sharing! I really hope guys don't underestimate or knock it to the side since negative emotions have been an important experience in my own growth. Pain does a powerful job of rewiring the brain. Many guys, including myself, tend to adopt mindsets like: "Pfff... the girl was just having a bad day, I wasn't creepy at all. All girls love me!" at the expense of accepting negative emotions and learning from them when they actually do act like weirdos. 

I remember a video of yours where you said you used to go into the bathroom, look in the mirror, and just let your negative emotions sink in and cry (I think you referred to how you called yourself a piece of shit into the mirror also) instead of dismissing them. I did the same thing after seeing it and it felt amazing. I felt refreshed and lighter, ready to take on the world. Thanks for that video as well. I've actually discussed quite a bit recently and want to show people the video, but can't find it. If you have a link, that'd be sweet.

Cheers,

 "As you do this more and more, you build ABUNDANCE"

Exactly what I needed to hear, bro. I know -- avoid a scarcity mindset -- but when you're living in REAL SCARCITY, it's tough. Just gotta focus on -- right ACTION will lead to ABUNDANCE. Eventually.

 I am so not getting this. If I was called a liar once I would look at the punk in quiet disbelief. Twice and I would punch him in the face. What planet is Owen living on....on mine an American basketball player just died in a club...multiple hits to the head. He was picking on someone's girlfriend and he was asked to stop...he didn't.

So much of Owen's stuff is spot on, regardless of local culture. I find the 'liar' bit over the top though, it shoudn't have been mixed with the inner game pain commentary.

So, pain is neccessary and I need to accept it for the journey.

Reminds me of Fight Club when Edward Norton gets that acid burn and Tyler Durden wants him to accept it!

 so let me tell you a little history from the last 8 months.


i was working in a cruise ship travelling, cities like AMSTERDAM, HELSINKI, COPENHAGEM, RIGA, SWEDEN, PARIS, NORWAY, SPAIN, GREECE - just to mention a few from the 25 cities that i've been in those last months.

the thing is, I'm not that skilled with woman, and it was A LOT of frustating see my friends pulling girls (and making fun of me) like average guys do and I'M DON'T. 


so, i save my money ALL THIS TIME.

i tried to reach u guys every month to SCHEDULE with at least 3 MONTHS PREVIOUSLY.

i was every nigth B-E-L-I-E-V-I-N-G that i WOULD HAVE my BOOTCAMP after i finish my contract and came back to brasil, and now after 30 mails with stu i asked him the number of the account so i can make the deposit while i'm here in NY waiting for my fly to brasil, i simply read the answer


"brad don't have time and HE IS NOT INTERESTED to go to your city"


WHAT?






Serioulsy. i couldn't sleep until i write this sht right here!


i would not be avaliable when he'll be in rio de janeiro and sao paulo in fev and march, coz my vacation will be from now oct 17 to JAN 12.
AND i will be back again to another 8 months travelling. is really that hard to say that I'm not avaliable like a normal person?


CAN ANYONE SEND ME AND INSTRUCTOR PLEASE?

I avoid partying, buying stuff to my family so i can have this fckin U$3000 !

Great video.
amazing content and so true.
We learn in field screwing things up.
that's so true.
then we correct it and keep moving forward until we fuck it up in another aspect of game.
then correct it again and keep moving forward.
It is a cicle.
Until we get good and mistakes don't come so easily and when they come we recognize it immediatelly and correct it.

Not really. It only hit the news because of pressure from the US Embassy that "justice" is done. He picked on a gangster's girlfriend, maybe he watched Owen's video before going out, I don't know. Had it been a lower-profile guy even we locally would hardly know about it. Just another guy getting his ass kicked in the club....not newsworthy.
That's why I'm really not getting this irresposible 'liar' bit. I don't think North America is intrinsically safer - the only place in this world someone drew a knife on me was in Canada! I'm nowhere close to what the gangsta type is around here in Eastern Europe! But if called a liar by someone who's obviously fucking with me as Owen is projecting, I would hit the fucker....like what the fuck, he's asking for it.
I'm making a point out of this as there are lots of bots on this forum sucking Owen's cock at every opportunity, without pausing to filter the information. Most of it really is spot on; and there's the 1% shit like this.

 Can't watch the vids alas, didn't bring the earphones to the caf'e. 

It's weird, sometimes you just need to hear the same message over and over again, said in different ways, before I really understand (or I'm just a slow learner). 

The way I usually heared it was: Don't be afraid to break rapport, don't let your state be influenced by how she reacts. Now it's written as You want the girl to be nice to you and she wants the man who doesn't need her to be nice to him because he has options and now it hits home. Cheers!

I think that's true, but I honestly think you can evolve past NEEDING PAIN and instead begin to use pleasure as your motivation. This article article reminds me of the idea of NEURO-ASSOCIATIONS. I think we learn by creating these, and while pain initially motivates you to action I think you cross a threshold where suddenly there is no more pain in your life and you then, CONSCIOUSLY, form neuro-associations of pleasure to basically everything and you live in a state of pleasure and don't NEED the use of pain to motivate you anymore.

Tyler,

Do you see the link between the emotional pain and the immune system? Stress affects the immune system in a negative way and I already experience the "fruits" even when eating healthy, exercising and sleeping 8 hours a day. Being in this journey gives emotional rollecoaster that a normal person with a stable life may not experience (strong positive as well as negative emotions). Although, I must admit that there are less and less negative emotions as I've become denser over the time and tought myself not to identify with emotions.

Therefore I don't 100% get when people advise to live a stress-free life, it's still a sticking point for me in the game.

For me the biggest distinction between personal development over the last 25 years and what's being taught here is balls. RSD is personal evolution with balls. There's more evolution to come for sure.

its funny. all the "art of enjoying life" talk only makes sense if you realize that more accomplishment doesnt necessarily mean more happiness.

 To me this is the BEST BLOG ever as of now.

I can relate to what Owen said about "actually liking a girl" only to be getting denied drastically.  
In the last 10 years, I have been so hesitant on letting myself get close to someone.
Once I thought I met "the one" I let my guard down only to end up having her dump my sorry ass.
I was "butt hurt" for about a month and cried a week straight.
After all is said and done, I do not let my guard down and am stronger than ever!
I could go on and on about this, and I am very sorry I had to miss the RSD Free Tour and Jeffy Hot seat last weekend.

Thank you very much Owen and I hope to see you on the next tour in Chicago.
Respect.

Tyler this is like the best video you've ever came up with.

HOLY SHIT.

So fucking true. i used to walk around like such a pussy ass bitch giving my power away and it hurt so bad until one day I just stopped giving a fuck and started acting HOW I WANTED around girls and even tooling out other guys and it felt so fuckin' good I never looked back since...

The top feels nice, being a stressed out weak chode sucks shit.

Pain and fucked up experiences teach youto GROW and adapt new beneficial behaviors.

THANK YOU.

Good article bro, I've stopped pursuing things in life due to pain so I'll just bore through it and see what happens.

1 question though: 

How did you keep motivation through a period of pain?
