World Summit is upon us.
I’ll be heading to Las Vegas tomorrow with the ENTIRE RSD team and my best non RSD buddies for a week of adventures and absolute chaos.
(It’s running August 3 to 9th – click this link if you’ve thought about coming last minute.)
Hundreds of the most dedicated dudes in the game are going to be in da house, and this year is our biggest Summit ever – it’s really crazy for me to consider what everyone is about to experience and learn.
At the same time, I often feel bummed at this time of year because I’m swamped with emails from guys saying how bad they wanted to go to Summit but couldn’t get their shit together to make it.
It kinda sucks because obviously it IS tough to get a week off work and get down to Vegas sometimes, but I wanted to offer my thoughts for people who wanted to go but couldn’t figure it out.
First off, I “get it”.
I know how hard it is to get your shit together.
I’m a guy who has “gotten his shit together” myself, and it hasn’t been easy at all.
At the same time, don’t make excuses for yourself.
If you were a Bootcamp student, you had a free pass to attend as a result of being an alumni, and you failed to exploit the opportunity.
If you were a first time Summit attendee who never did Bootcamp, it was a cheap program that you could’ve made happen as well.
In life we always tell ourselves this story about “Next year, next year, next year… At some point IN THE FUTURE my life will be “together” enough to do that.”
BUT IT’S NEVER GONNA HAPPEN.
If you couldn’t make it this year, I’ve got some troubling news for you, which is that your life will likely only be TOUGHER by next year as you progress further down your path.
FIND A WAY to get what you want out of life.
If you had a movie camera into what the happiest people in the world have done to get the experiences they want out of life, you’d realize that you’re playing in the little leagues with your excuses.
Making it to Vegas for a week is SMALL TIME SHIT compared to what many other people accomplish in life. It’s doable. So stop letting yourself off the hook. 🙂
Yes, World Summit is obviously an absolute blast and a life changing experience, so next year stop making excuses for yourself and find a way to get there.
But even more important is that this isn’t even about Summit, as much as it is about finding a way to do the things you want to do.
It’s about how you show up in life IN GENERAL.
So point being, if you’re someone who wanted to be there and couldn’t “figure out a way” I’d say get hard on yourself and next year make it a MUST to get your ass to Vegas to party with me for a week.
You will NEVER go to your death bed regretting an experience like that, because it is fucking amazing. 🙂
Then from there, make a choice to have the experiences you want in EVERY aspect of your short, limited time on earth as well.
It’s the most important decision you can ever make.
(I made a video on this exact topic a few years ago, and it’s one of my favorites I ever did.)
Anyway I’m prepping for the biggest week of my year, and if for any reason this is your first time hearing about Summit, here is the website of the event running from August 3rd to 9th.
Here’s a list of my other upcoming events as well…
August 21, 2014: San Francisco
September 18, 2014: Boston
October 23, 2014: Washington
November 20, 2014: Philadelphia
You can reach my homeboys on the phone who will answer any questions you have about events and save you the time from even clicking these buttons. They’re young guys who go hard in the game and know their stuff, and will be happy to sort you out.
So I rocked out a very simple but profound video in Santa Barbara about how pickup gives you a “taste” of higher states of mind, which then become HABITUATED over time if you back them up with good inner game.
This is a super profound video TBH but I’d assume that most people won’t fully process it, since they aren’t experienced enough at pickup to have a context for the ideas.
For those of you who DO want to understand it though, he’s the basic ideas.
1- Pickup “spikes” up your state of mind for brief periods, which happens as a result of the increase in status you gain with sporadic successes.
2- If you fail to back this up with a proper understanding of inner game, you rely completely on continually generating those amazing responses for your mind to remain in that higher state.
3- Conversely if you back up your experiences with inner game, and have them regularly so that you have an ongoing influx of mind elevating experiences and great understanding of inner game to make it a CONSTANT, you will BECOME THAT GUY.
4- Life is a continuum of evolving through paradigms, and pickup is one of the most powerful tools to evolve.
That’s basically why I’ve stayed in it so long, and continue to find it rewarding.
Check this out…
Anyway hope you enjoyed this.
My assistant Max also took a GREAT video of our recent trip to the Napali Coast of Kauai, and I think this is going to blow your mind.
Even if you didn’t watch all this for the content it would be worthwhile to click through it to see the scenery. But the content is great as well. 🙂
I have a very brief cameo at the end too.
Be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Max’s Youtube channel as well, as I’ve seen the videos he has coming out and they’re absolutely fantastic.
Alright good stuff!
See you at Summit, and otherwise if you’re not there have a great week! 🙂
