TWO new videos today from Atlanta Free Tour, about 30 minutes a pop so strap in for a big ride!
The first is on my lack of social awareness as a newbie.
The second is on the “secrets of coolness” I learned from 12 years in the game, mainly an extension of my self reliance rant from the previous Washington DC Free Tour.
They’re great vids and you will enjoy them, as well as gaining a lot of value.
I’ve been off of teaching the past few weeks which has been nice. I’m really burnt out both physically and emotionally, so it’s good that I’m doing this.
The burnout isn’t bad, it’s just par for the course of travelling and teaching and building a business non stop.
I like it. 🙂
But as time goes on I’m having to become a master of “energy management” which someday I hope to get down even better and create content about.
Julien meanwhile is also on his break and staying with me in Los Angeles, and basically looks like a crackhead lol. He hadn’t slept for more than 40 hours since his trip to Malaysia, but he’s since slept 11 hours and is hard at work on his newfound Tinder app looking for new victims. 🙂
The coming year of programs are going to be incredible.
I’m going to teach less often, and it may be my final year putting this much into focusing purely on pickup programs.
OTOH with less programs on the schedule I’ll have time to build a lot of the more advanced content I wanted to create (mini documentary style) as well as in depth newbie material.
All of this will be released for free of course.
For some reason I’m so passionate about releasing free content and you can probably tell that it’s my main hobby.
I love watching people try to “figure out” RSD’s business model. THERE IS NO BUSINESS MODEL. The model is we love teaching pickup and creating content, and are lucky to have students who want to learn lol.
The typical person looking to replicate our non stop free content business model would have to be teaching non stop as well, since that’s where we get all these ideas from.
All this is basically just a record of insights we gain from teaching and teaching all the time. I know that any day I could die so I want to leave a record of all this, I feel that the ideas are very unique and I hope that people will take the torch and expand on them in the future.
There’s something fascinating about what you learn of human psychology and behaviour from doing all this pickup, as well as teaching it. Nobody has done this before, and that’s why the teachings are so unique.
In the future I plan to expand this significantly, and feel that what I’m doing now is about 1% – 5% of what I could be eventually capable of. This is really just scratching the surface of my larger plans.
For some reason I’m a slow learner, and take more time to “get” something than most people. I believe it’s due my brain being wired very differently from most people’s (for better or worse) which makes me very disconnected from most people and have a hard time relating to them.
That being the case, I’m left alone in my own introspective world of thought to think and think all the time, and you add in the massive action and social interaction I’m always taking, and you have a recipe for some really unique ideas.
Like I said I’m really just scratching the surface here, and my goal the past few years has been to build up a base of ideas. This coming year I want to finalize the base of ideas and create them into videos similar to what I’ve been releasing.
Then as time goes on I want to purchase a shit ton of camera equipment and bring on a full flown production team, and just go CRAZY with this shit. All released for free.
That’s the plan as of now, and it may take longer than I expect (similar to Blueprint and RSD Nation and Hot Seat — basically all my best projects take longer than I expect) but when it happens it’s going to be NUTS.
Then I’ll keep building the business systems and infrastructure, and in my mid forties or early fifties will be open minded to doing media, similar to dudes like Deepak Chopra and other dudes you see out there.
I really enjoy my freedom and ability to move around somewhat freely, as well as being in a super creative space where I’m not distracted by gaining people’s approval of my ideas.
I think when you start doing media and engaging in public dialogue, you get bogged down in defending your ideas and image and lose your creativity. It’s only when you’ve been doing what you’ve been doing for a long time that you don’t really care.
I’ve always related a lot with my fav film maker Terrence Malick in that regard, to where I want to FOCUS ON THE WORK. The work IS the pay off for me, as long as the team is happy and the company is doing well.
Over time I really believe we’re going to do some truly amazing and impactful things though, and like I said this is like a little seedling just barely peaking out of the soil at this point.
I can see the vision and just love watching the movie as it unfolds.
Anyway that’s a cool status update and here’s a list of my upcoming programs.
There’s a few RARE events where both Julien and I will be teaching Hot Seat in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Miami btw.
We had to bend around our schedules to a pretty crazy extent to both teach together since he typically covers non USA events, so if you live in USA I’d *URGE* you to attend any Hot Seat where I teach Saturday and he teaches his day Sunday. You will be in for a treat.
Here’s the list of the upcoming events:
December 12, 2013: Los Angeles
December 19, 2013: New York
January 2, 2014: Chicago
January 16, 2014: Salt Lake City
January 30, 2014: San Francisco
February 27, 2014: Miami
I have a 3 person team that handles ALL of your questions about RSD events — Stuart, Huey, and David — all guys in their 20’s who are highly active in the game and pimp it with instructors personally, call them any time to talk game or ask any questions you want!
NORTH AMERICA (Toll Free): +1 (888) 546 7286
EUROPE: +44 (0) 2079 934 034
AUSTRALIA: +61 280 155 522
I also wanted to mention that Julien and I will officially be launching the Hot Seat 3 soon.
We’ve been running the beta version and the cool bonus we’ve provided is a full year global pass to the Tyler / Julien Hot Seat.
(So you can do any of our events in the world for a full year, as many times as you want.)
We’re going to offer this as a bonus when we officially launch within the next month or 2.
The Hot Seat 3 is REALLY amazing and a full step up from any previous events. Catch these while we’re still doing them so frequently.
If you sign up now you’re still good to go on that “global pass” bonus, which I personally think is the insanely high value bonus we’ve ever done.
Lastly is the Miami South Beach “Model Season Bootcamp” that Julien, Jeff and myself are running for ALUMNI ONLY this February.
Imagine 5 days of straight Bootcamping in South Beach during peak season. It’s insane.
So we’re going to crack into TWO videos today.
The first is the full story of what my reality was like when I was first learning game.
IMO the most basic problem I had was a serious lack of social awareness.
Was this some sort of ausbergers issue, or was I just so trapped in my head and stuck in a bad paradigm that I never took the time to understand other people?
I’m not really sure, but I honestly could barely read social cues or understand what people were thinking for the first 22 years of my life.
I came from a pretty rough background so I could understand “street smarts” but actually emotional stuff was way over my head.
That being the case, pickup has been a GOD SEND for me. I can’t say enough how important it’s been.
And for that reason I call this video “2 Decades Of Social Experience In 2 Years”.
That’s basically what the game has been.
CLICK THIS VIDEO RIGHT NOW TO SEE WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT.
btw the Instagram pic I shot live about 9 minutes in can be found at…
Funny shit! Be sure to follow me as well.
Anywayzzz glad you watched this!
I’ve really tried to go into the whole pain I went through as a newbie while I’m still focused on pickup and can still remember it.
At some point I’d like to make a really extensive video on what it was like, for people interested to hear my story.
I’m sort of hesitant to cover that too much at a Free Tour because there will be some people who want to hear EVERYTHING and others who just want info that’s actually applicable to their own lives.
But I’ll try to shoot a video where it’s clearly titled what it’s about, and people who are interested can watch it if they choose.
NEXT VIDEO WHICH IS SUPER GOOD…
This one is a RIPPER of a vid and has more of what you’d call “advanced’ content.
I always try to go into the emotion of what I’m talking about, so in the first one I tapped into my more “shy newbie side” and this one I’m talking about self reliance and being cool with high status people, so I really get in my zone and ride the wave.
What you’re about to see is an extension of the Washington DC video on self reliance and non neediness, which is the most popular Free Tour vid I’ve done in a while.
If you want to learn about relating with high status men and hot women in a cool way, OR if you just wanna be entertained with a great talk, sit back and enjoy.
You’re all Free Tour’ed up for the week.
Thanks for catching both of the talks!
EXTERNAL RESOURCE OF THE WEEK
We’ve just talked about “self reliance for good emotions” again, and THE MAN who I learned so much of this from is none other than Eckhart Tolle.
Yes he’s an old man who likely doesn’t get erections, and that’s fine.
It’s great to learn from all sorts of sources.
The PREMIER source I’ve learned so much about emotional self reliance from is ECKY.
If you want to watch a great documentary with Eckhart then take a minute and check this out.
I always try to spread the word of this dude, so glad you checked it out.
FORUM POST OF THE WEEK
I wrote up a KILLER post this week which I may repost in it’s entirety with the Austin Free Tour when I post it on the frontpage eventually.
It’s on the subject of how slutty girls are, how often you should be closing, what it means that girls like sex sex.
VERY DETAILED article that provides a ton of context. Check it out.
And as I always say, be sure to REWARD GREAT POSTS by RESPONDING TO THEM!
If you honestly care about the forum then value your time and feed the content, while ignore ignore ignore to people who gossip and whine because they don’t value their own time.
Remember that nothing on this earth is more valuable than your time.
People who waste their time gossiping, hating, making bullshit, are to be IGNORED.
The world needs to move forward, and it will happen by people focusing only on those who create real value. Make the forum great!
COMMUNITY VIDEO OF THE WEEK
There’s often videos that are created by the larger RSD community, and I thought I’d start posting them when I come across them.
This week I wanted to post a spiritual type video created by someone who is into RSD.
Here’s his description…
This was created by “ZenBen” who posted his description here.
Be sure to comment on Youtube, and here’s what he wrote…
“Cheers guys, here’s what’s going on…
Main character: Julian (Guy mediating and guy wearing the mask) – A man suffering with depression and anxiety who is super attached to his pain body. (Not RSD Julien haha).
The Blue Man – Julian’s ego/Pain Body Girl – Julian’s Ex girlfriend who cheated on him because he was a chode stuck in scarcity.
Grim Reaper – Represents Julians fear of the unknown, anxiety and fear of death. Guy in suit – Absolute player who steals his girlfriend.
The Doctor – Represents group think/Social conditioning.
Brief breakdown: Julian goes to a remote location to meditate, he is chained to his ego who is in the form of a blue man. As Julian closes his eyes he confronts his ego while wearing a mask.
The mask represents his fear of letting his true self shine through, he hides behind false expectations set by society and the fears that has been put on him by his ego. He then watches his ego fantasies about his ex girlfriend as they sit on a beach hugging.
Julian then brings his ego back into reality and shows the ego how his girlfriend cheated on him with another man as he was stuck in a scarcity based mindset. The ego is fully attached to the girl forcing her to cheat on him and she cut the chain with an axe. The ego wants Julian to stop mediating but he keeps going forcing him to face his fears represented by the grim reaper.
The doctor is the egos only way of escaping, he is unwilling to take responsibility. As the ego is in a drug like state he is wired up to a television which is warping his mind with unconscious like behavior, represents how the media and society enforces there ideologies on people as his girlfriend is illuminated on the television screen i.e represents how they reinforce ideas such as “the one” in films.
The grim reaper is now approaching Julian and the ego, the ego is going to have to face the unknown. Julian then unplugs his ego from the television freeing him from group think. Now unplugged from the social matrix Julian confronts his ego and the removes his mask.
The Ego now becomes self aware, the ego now knows he is the very reason Julian is scared/unhappy. Julian gives the ego the key to unlock the chain. The grim reaper is now about to touch julian, the ego now knows he has to detach himself from Julian and realeases the chain and disappears, the grim reaper looses all his power and walks away. Julian opens his eyes enlightened, chilled as fuck and walks of. Well something like that anyway.
Whacked it together in a couple of days and didn’t cost anything to make, was pretty fun so if you or anyone has any other ideas on making a film or video about RSD or pickup i’ll make it.
Sorry used some names like Julien to homaged RSD, it’s not meant to represent him tho. Na I’m not in film school tho might go one day if i can save the money and yea your right i like Bergman movies.
So I’m out of here.
Please hit me back with comments about the 2 vids! I want your feedback! Did you relate to the newbie story? What are your thoughts about self reliance and coolness?
I’ve got many KILLER KILLER KILLER videos already created and have been just cutting them and uploading them, so expect a lot of killer content.
The upcoming Free Tours I have are among my best ever, as well as the locational vBlogs which are totally next level and off the chains. 🙂
Hope you’re as psyched to see them as I’ve been to create them.
Thanks so much for checking this out, I couldn’t and wouldn’t do it without you!!
