Man so psyched to rock into today’s 2 new vids.
One of them is the continuation of the “Truth About Success” series — the FOURTH installment! And the other is a vblog on a similar theme.
In the meantime I hope you’ve been enjoying the shit out of Brad Branson’s takeover week.
The key to it….
Focus on building YOUR OWN IDEAL LIFE.
Don’t just watch what he’s putting out passively. Get engaged.
The best way to do that right now…?
Get onto his free webinar on January 19, which is on the topic of “What is your identity? And figure out how it affects every decision you make.”
You’re going to learn a FUCK TON on how to take more risks and build your ideal life.
If you’ve been watching me for the past few years, you’ve seen how I’ve pushed hard to do that, and that’s because everything I’ve ever taught you in RSD can ALSO be applied to building the most obnoxiously envy-provoking life.
As we covered in a funny fashion in that crazy vid, it is ALL RELATED.
So exploit all the time you’ve put in here at RSD and get twice the value from it – both with girls and with LIFE! – get on that webinar to learn where to go from here.
Brad’s Lifestyle Academy has had the most amazing testimonials and results. It’s the shit, absolutely bursting with brain rocking value, and I know you’re going to have a blast!
See you on the call!
I also have my own pickup related programs coming up, and wanted to share the dates.

Imagine a FULL FIVE DAY ROMP through the most exclusive scene in the world at that time of year, rampaging with the RSD crew?
You owe it to yourself to check out this site right now, while it’s hot on your mind. It’s my favourite Bootcamp event of the year.
Okay so we’re cracking into “The Truth About Success 4” today.
I was so happy with the first two versions, which to me are irreplacable, but I wanted to expand upon the ideas while I was still so focused on RSD.
Basically the theme of the “Truth About Success” videos is that I’m willing to “open up” the part of my brain that is probably pretty bitter about life in a lot of ways, LOL.
This isn’t the side of me you see most often, but it’s a very real side of my personality.
And if I’m going to be honest….. it’s the side of my personality that’s gotten me the most success.
This one gets pretty intense.
I tried to dig deep into the more difficult years of my life, where all I did was work with nearly no leisure or certainty that “everything would be okay”.
Life is a lot happier now (despite that I still maintain those habits to an extent) but I wanted to go back into that old headspace – where there was barely enough time to “tread water” let alone “get ahead” – and had to make sacrifices to crawl out of the pit inch by inch.
It was important to me to share this while I could still remember and it still felt somewhat real to me (since as time passes it feels more like a dream).
I can picture a time in the future where it will all seem so vague, I’ll have lost my fury towards the experience and think this type of thinking is absurd. I’ll be the successful old guy like “Just enjoy life…”
But in reality that’s not what will have gotten me to that point, so I wanted to go deep on how I REALLY did all this, and you’ll find the truth revealed in this vid.
That’s not to say YOU have to go along with what I’m saying. It’s all your personal choice. I just wanted to make it available for you to do as you please.
CLICK THIS VIDEO RIGHT NOW TO DISCOVER THE TRUTH ABOUT SUCCESS….
Hope you enjoyed this!
It’s been fun to extend the series a bit, and I may do a few more before I’m done with RSD.
At that point all my advice will be self development based regardless, and as I mentioned, I’ll probably be coming from a less intense by that point as I soften with age.
AND HERE’S A SECOND NEW VIDEO FOR YA TODAY!!
This was just something I randomly shot on the side of the street in New York (Broadway) off the top of my head.
Sometimes I just feel like talking, so I thought I’d add it in as a sort of bonus video between the more hardcore vids I put out.
It’s my thoughts on the hardships of life.
I had a friend who commit suicide a few months ago in NYC, and while we weren’t super close and didn’t see eachother often, he was somebody I liked a lot (and valued having met).
It hurt to see him go, if for no other reason than I feel his perspective could have changed, and once you’re gone there’s nothing you can do to reverse it.
“You can’t unscramble a scrambled egg…”
The thing about this is I’ve dealt with depression from my childhood to early twenties — nearly a quarter century of my life spent in that fucked up hellish haze.
I GET IT.
And while I’m not remotely qualified to speak on his issues (I believe he had imbalances in his brain chemistry – but ultimately I have no way to know) the sense that I get is that there’s 2 different perspectives I used to talk myself out of doing the same thing when I was young.
(I used to consider it constantly…)
1) I just figured that life is so short anyway, you may as well see where it goes.
2) I was able to (as weird as it is) EMBRACE that the world can be unfair and life often sucks.
IMO the key to it all is NON RESISTANCE.
It’s like……. whatever. Life is what it is.
There’s so much pain and suffering, and it’s all pointless – I get that ALL TOO WELL.
But at the same time, life is just a brief experience, so you may as well stick around a bit longer and just see what happens.
For me, I used to wait for my depression to go away, or my approach anxiety to go away, or for work to get easier.
And I realized over time that while there’s a LOT you can do to proactively improve it, I don’t NEED for it to be permanentely cured or fully go away.
Life was passing me by, and I knew it would be over SO FUCKING SOON that I may as well just shut the fuck up and get on with it NOW, while I still can.
Why should bad emotions stop you from having a cool life, or working hard, or getting laid?
The obvious answer is that emotions color everything in your life. When your brain chemistry is all fucked up, it’s hard to move forward.
But at the same time, sitting around just makes it worse as well.
Whether a dude is happy or sad….. the way I had to put it to myself…. WHATEVER.
I just learned to amp myself up by brute force and slam the damned happy chemicals into my brain WHETHER THEY LIKED IT OR NOT.
(That’s why I often look so amped up or jittery at times. I’ve made the choice to stop allowing my default emotions to dictate how I feel, and just force the shit out of it. As much as I’d love not to have to, I spent years trying to figure a way out, and that’s what I personally found to work extremely well. I’m personally bored and disgusted with being sad, I want to love life for this short period I have left, and I LIVE by that every day.)
Over many years my brain sort of acclimated to it, and I’ve become a much happier dude.
Similar to walking while drunk, or walking through a fog. You just fucking stumble through it. LET’S GO!!!
It’s all in the non resistance.
As soon as I wallow about the imbalances in my brain chemistry, it gets bad. But as long as I just accept it, I can get moving in life, and find happiness again.
Yes I often look like a jittery weirdo. But that’s where I find the victory in what I do.
EVERYTHING in my life is hard. All of it. When your brain doesn’t work for you the way it’s supposed to, the simplest fucking things are hard.
For me though, that’s why I love my life so much. THAT is what gives me meaning, as crazy as that sounds.
And as a strange consequence, in adulthood I’ve wound up becoming more emotionally stable than nearly anyone I’ve met.
Since the crazy emotions are so familiar to me, and I’ve come to a place where I deal with them so effectively, it’s ALL good.
Whatever happens, there’s no crazy emotion I’m not completely familiar with, and that I don’t know how to diffuse.
You can read about this in a book called “First Rate Madness” as well, that talks about many presidents and world leaders who had similar issues as well.
Anyway it’s a pretty simple vid but I felt it added some value.
Hope you got something from it!
