Shift Section 2: You Are What You Think – Lesson 2.1: Staying Motivated

In order to achieve a certain level of success, I need to find a certain level of motivation.

As I know by now, this shit is tough. Pickup is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my entire life (it’s true – even learning programming was easier than this) and I need to have a burning desire to get through all the bullshit to reach my full potential.

Important: I can’t just want this. I need to need this. I should feel compelled to learn game instead of simply desiring it. Stop dabbling around. This should be life or death. I need to feel forced to do this – there are no alternatives.

Game is emotionally traumatizing and it will fuck with me on every level.

How motivated I am determines my level of success. And I need to find motivation that’s bigger than all the bullshit that binds me and holds me back.

Julian says, “If this is important enough for you, you will find a way. If not – you will find an excuse.”

When it comes to pickup, most guys just take a shitload of information they find on the internet and just freestyle it. That’s the wrong way.

Important: Another common problem are guys heading in the right direction, but then they get stuck. It’s what PUAs call “intermediate purgatory”. I’ve experienced this so, so many times in my pickup journey. This is generally characterized by making the same mistakes over and over and over again.
