Übermensch Mode (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Heathcliff--

This post will be long, it's a fucking novel. In fact I almost hit the 40,000 reddit character limit. There is no TL:DR, this information is all relevant and connected, it will not make sense to split it into multiple posts. If you need to, take breaks and read it in parts


PART 1: PHILOSOPHY


TRP is not just about women and sexual strategy.

Sure, it may have started out that way in the manosphere, and may have been the initial purpose of the subreddit when it was created: a place for men to vent about their women troubles, share notes, and collectively construct a system to help each other navigate the sexual marketplace.

Very quickly though, we realised that the AFC struggles with a lot more than just women. In fact, his problems with women are just a symptom of a much larger disease.

We discovered that teaching weak, depressed beta males to become real, productive men was the real trick to getting women. We're not pickup artists, we don't put on an act and learn lines and fake being attractive in order to get the ladies, instead, we encourage men to actually become attractive, physically and mentally. After that, the women fall into our laps effortlessly. It's not that complicated is it?

So a better system was created. We encourage you to exercise and build a great body, we encourage meditation, mindfulness and philosophy. We tell you to find a mission and dedicate yourself to, discover your purpose in life.

TRP has become the reddit space for men who are committed to self actualizing.


Metamorphosis

We attract a lot of losers here, depressed betas, sad soyboys, fat midlife crises-ers; and for good reason. These losers are men who are deeply unhappy with their lives, and are looking for guidance and support; some way to pull them out of their hole.

And they find it on TRP. For the first time in their lives, there are some answers, there are real truths to life. They're sick of being lied to and pushed down by the bullshit peddled since childhood, they want to be MEN but they don't know how.

And here are some real MEN, showing them. There is cause for rejoice, finally a community of driven, disciplined and successful people.

So the depressed beta follows the advice and his life magically starts to improve. He finally has the body he dreamed of, and he enjoyed working hard to achieve it; people treat him better and he feels more in control of his life; everything is going great at work or school, and most importantly of all; he's finally started to get laid, with the kind of women he could only dream of while he masturbated as a kid.

He begins to climb Maslow's Pyramid. He starts by fulfilling basic needs, he eats and sleeps better, and he builds a healthier body. Then he starts getting laid and having real, intimate relationships with women, and males to, he makes good, close friends. This is incredibly important, and is a reason why Incels are so pitiable; intimate relationships are imperative to our growth as humans. There is no such thing as a "lone wolf alpha".

And so he keeps climbing, he starts to gain some prestige and confidence and feel like a real person.

But still, and surprisingly, our new "alpha" is unfulfilled.

He still feels empty on the inside, in fact, even more than before. He gets all the pussy he wants, but it's meaningless. It's not as fun or interesting as he thought it would be. He has more money and more toys, but this doesn't really interest him anymore. He might be doing very well on the career ladder, but feel totally un-invested in his profession.

This is because our new "alpha" has yet to reach the final stage of his purpose as a man: Self Actualization.

There was a post on asktrp a few days ago from a guy with exactly this problem. His life was going great and he was getting all the pussy he wanted, but he still felt like shit. Still felt like he had no purpose, no direction in life.

That's because he didn't. He was going through the motions of what makes a successfull man, but with no end goal in sight. No true mission.


We teach men here that without a purpose in life, without a goal and direction, a man has no meaning. Your purpose could be anything: maybe you want to be the best at a sport, or a famous youtuber, or filthy fucking rich. Maybe you want to be the next Alexander the Great, or Hitler... or Kanye; maybe you want to die for a cause, give your life to your religion or country. Or maybe you have more realistic and practical aspirations; you want to pull your family out of poverty and remove them from your shithole thirdworld country and settle in the first world.

But without a goal in mind, without a direction, you will wonder through life and waste it without realising. What are you going to accomplish? How will you be remembered?


Win the Game

I outlined in a recent post my idea that life itself can be split and compartmentalized into multiple minigames. You win the Game of Life overall by winning the other games. You win these games with micro and macro plays: You wash your hands so you don't get disease and lose the Game of Health a micro play; you also lift and take care of your body for the same reason, a macro play. You cultivate a great Social Media profile to win the Game of Power. You study at university so you can get a god paying job so you can win the Game of Money; but there are other ways to win that game if you want, hustle, invest, deal drugs. Whatever, we all have different strategies to try and win our games. Some work, some do not.

Your purpose as a man is to win this game. You were put on the earth for this reason. Everyone is competing and we don't have a choice; failure is death and collapse into nothingness, success is existing for a few more millennia (as a genetic entity in your progeny, or as a memetic entity in your ideas) and telling entropy to fuck off.

The depressed beta is losing the game of life. That is why he's so sad and hopeless. He may not realize it on a conscious level, but his subconscious definitely knows. It compares his current ranking in the game with those around him, and assesses whether he is winning or not. And when he realizes he's losing, the beta falls into a spiral of despair and gives up. There's no point continuing anymore, he thinks. I've missed the chance, might as well just kill myself.

This is why high school reunions can be so juicy, or painful. You are comparing your results to your peers, people in the same socio-economic class as you, with roughly the same starting position and opportunities. So when you see that some guys, who were basically the same as you when kids, managed to rise far further than you did, you get sad about it, or pissed off at yourself.

It's sad, because a lot of men do not realize that they are playing this game, not until it's too late anyway. They coast through life thinking it's all chill and there's no real pressure to succeed, and then they crash hard halfway through when they realize this is wrong and they wasted a lot of time and a lot of opportunities. Sometimes, it may be too late for them to do anything about it. A lot give up and settle into a sad, mediocre existence (and infecting their kids with this attitude, hence perpetuating the cycle). Some give up and kill themselves (male suicide rate is astonishing for this reason). The brave ones say, fuck it, I'm not going to waste the time I have left, I'll attempt to WIN anyway (this is a mid-life crisis).

Because winning is the only option. Winning is what you're here for.

Fuck being 'happy', that's just another myth pushed on us to make us content with mediocrity. You are better of being a sad and angry WINNER than a happy and content LOSER. Nature does not give a shit if you are happy or not. Do you think the men at the top of the world are 'happy'? Absolutely not. There lives are messy and dramatic and stressful; but these men are Winning, and this gives them purpose and reason to continue. This is the drug they snort, success.

And in fact, you are descended from a line of WINNERS. Every single one of your ancestors was a winner, down to when you were just a damn amoeba. They all survived and spread their genes, they all made offspring and continued the line, all the way down to you, the loser reading this on his computer screen. The kind of shit your ancestors had to do to survive would shock and horrify you. You are descended from soldiers who killed their enemies with brutality and glee, and then raped their women. You are a descendant of murders and rapists, of people who committed genocides. You are also a descendant of those who survived genocides, a descendant of slaves. There are women in your ancestry who were rape slaves their whole lives, and these women pushed through it all and survived so you could be here now. We are all descended from slaves and murderers.

So, you do not have the comfort of being an average loser. You do not have the freedom to be an incel and die in your mothers basement or to a drug overdose. To be a failure, right now, is to spit in the face of every single person in your genetic line who struggled through hardships you could not even imagine in order to give you this life. This isn't your life, you do not own it. You carry the burden of every single one of your ancestors on your shoulders.

Do not fuck it up.


"But Heathcliff, I'm short and balding and ugly and -hamster hamster hamster".

Fuck, so was everyone else in your family. The shortness you got from your father, well he had it too, and he managed to fucking get laid to produce you ungrateful bastard. The "bad" genes that you complain about are all genes that survived up until now, your great-great-great grandparents had it too and they managed to fucking win regardless. You do not have an excuse. You can't do anything about it. Heck, your bad genes aren't really that bad; the truly bad genes never survived up until this point, they died to entropy centuries ago. Your genes are fine, you're just a pussy making excuses for your failures.


The men who win the Game of Life all have one thing in common. They realize they're playing a game, and they tackle this game seriously and with every fibre of their being. They all have the same mindset, and in fact, in order for you to truly get your ass out of the chair and start winning too, you must adopt the mindset.

And it's not a new one, but it's one that a lot of us have lost.

The overwhelming Fear of Death.


Death Pressure

When I was 11 years old my father was diagnosed with cancer. As a child, I watched my dad, the greatest and most powerful man in my life, a god in my eyes, degenerate into a yellow sack of failing organs and pain. My dad, who could lift up the sofa with one hand, kick a football all the way across the park, and play with electrical sockets like they were toys. Over the course of a year, my father crumbled into a bedridden mess, was destroyed by his own body, tortured by the chemo, and disintegrated into nothing. At 36 years old.

Only now that I'm older do I realize how fucking young 36 years old is. He did not even get the chance to live half a life.

And this took a massive toll on my childhood psyche. It wasn't conscious at first, but now I understand that I behave the way I do because of this.

I have a crippling, horrifying, but healthy fear of Death. I understand just how short life can be, how it can be stolen from you at any moment, and how we do not have the luxury of pissing it away. Life is a gift, it is not yours to waste.

Death Pressure is real, and is the primary driving force behind the actions of the men who rule the world, and the men who rise from nothingness to be great. These men all have a terrible fear of death, and mediocrity. To be an average loser for these men is akin to Death itself. We've all heard the stories of the person who has almost died but survived; be it an accident or illness, and suddenly they are a different person, tackling life in a way they couldn't even conceive of before. They have had a taste of Death, and it horrified them.

So I've always tackled life at 100%, knowing that I may be killed or succumb to illness at any moment. And I see the hurting eyes of the men in later stages of their lives, the eyes of those who realize they've lost the game, and I vow NEVER to be that man. I try to milk as much experience and meaning from my days as possible; whether it means fucking the prettiest girls, doing the hardest drugs, travelling to the most astounding places; or creating, writing for the people around me, leaving my mark on the world, and ascending humanity.

Fuck being a loser. Fuck being a prole. Fuck being a slave. I live my life as the Ubermensch.


It is your job in life to succeed and win the game, and become the Higher Man, the best version of yourself.

We all have the capability, but very few of us actually do it. The vast majority of us are too fucking lazy, scared and weak to ever even attempt becoming something other than a fat, mediocre bastard.

Self-Actualizing is hard, if it was easy we could all do it. It's a fucking struggle, and it's your struggle; but you can and will achieve if you stop fucking around and dedicate yourself to it 100%.

I managed to do it, I'm operating at max capacity right now, I know I will turn out a great man, especially if I continue on this trajectory.

But I used to be a fucking loser. The worst fucking kind of loser. I was just as bad, if not worse than a lot of you guys who've already given up. Later on in this post, because I am never ashamed of talking about my shortcomings, I will give you a taste of what my depressed Beta day looks like, and what my Ubermensch day looks like.

But for now, I want to give you all some actual methods and techniques in achieving Ubermensch mode; because I hate when an article gives you a call to action but doesn't show you how. Here is how I managed to ascended into demi-god levels of productivity, there's obviously lots of information out there on how to do this, but this is how I personally tackle the problem, and some of these ideas I have not seen discussed before


PART 2: METHODS


Efficiency Principle

You are a cell. The cell takes material from the outside and converts it into useful material for itself. The cell aims to be as efficient as possible with it's actions; any waste, any inneficiency will be punished by nature. The cell competes with other cells, and so the inefficient, lazy, and wasteful cells will always lose to cells that operate closer to 100%.

The cell is always trying to optimize it's usage of time, energy, and resources. The closer to 100% the cell can get, the better it will do in the world. It is a mortal sin for the cell to be wasteful.

The efficiency principle is the mechanism in your head that governs the little ways you go about the world. You finish your bowl of cereal, instead of getting up and putting it in the sink immediately; you leave it on the table and tell yourself "I will take it with me next time I enter the kitchen". This saves you an extra journey, kills two birds with one stone, and conserves your energy (yet we still fucking forget to do it, every single time). This is a natural, intuitive thought and we all have it. The Efficiency Principle is what makes the dishes pile up in the sink, with the knowledge that it is better for your time, energy and budget, to wash all the dishes at once instead of individually. The Efficiency Principle is what encourages you to set-up a meeting with your buddy if you happen to be in that part of town, it's convenient, you don't have to go out of your way because you're already there.

The efficiency principle is what makes you fucking rage and despair when you lose all your work because your laptop died or accidentally closed your tab (because you're an idiot and didn't save). All that time and effort, completely wasted, nothing to show for it. This is a mortal sin for productivity, and a grave wound to your day. When you're with a girl for 10 years and break up, the efficiency principle is what makes you feel like shit about it even if it was the right move; all that time and effort wasted on a venture that amounted to nothing. In fact because of this, some people won't break up even through problems; it seems like the smarter thing to do to push through it then to have to start again from scratch.

Beware of being hijacked by this principle and making fallacious mistakes like this; but always be aware of it in the back of your mind, you will feel happier and better about yourself should you act efficiently in all your actions. This leads into the next point

Dead Time

Dead Time is any time not spent growing or recovering.

Time, in essence, is the only real resource you have. It is finite, and wasting time is the worst thing you can do for your development as a human. You will always lose to those who are efficient with their time. The winners in the world make sure that their entire day, to the second, is filled with effective and productive time use.

Dead Time is any time you spend not building yourself, or recovering in order to do so. I'll give you some examples. You're on Stronglifts 5x5 and workout Mond/Wed/Fri. Tuesday and Thursday are not wasted days, they are days you spend recovering and building muscle, to train on these days is detrimental. This is not dead time.

But if you begin skipping workout day, days in which you are refreshed and capable of building; you are in Dead Time. It is time that could be useful literally dying in your hands.

You bust out a massively stressful day at work, but you achieved a lot. You get home and pump on the netflix and watch 4 episodes of Peep Show. This is not Dead Time. You are recovering from the hardships of the day, you are taking a breather and healing yourself.

On the weekend, you wake up refreshed and ready to tackle the day. Instead you continue to watch Netflix. This is Dead Time, you are not recovering from shit, and the task isn't useful. You are replacing a useful thing you could be doing (maybe lifting, cooking, stuyding something) with an unproductive task. You are murdering time.

This one isn't hard to get. Your task now is to assess your day and try and realize how much of your time is really spend in Dead Time, scrolling reddit or fucking around. I guarantee you it will be too much, and you can cut it down.

Day of Rest

This doesn't go to mean that you cannot do the things you enjoy, or that you don't deserve a break. You do, it's very important, but schedule your breaks. Every single religion and culture in the world has a concept of a "Day of Rest", a day where you just stop, take a breather and relax for a while. This is an important human foundation. Use this day of rest as a cheat day, on this day, allow yourself to do the shit that you know is bad for you during the rest of the week, get it out of your system and scratch the itch. If you want to fap, go for it, if you want to smoke weed or drink, do so, if you want to binge netflix or play videogames, go ahead.

As long as you keep these things compartmentalized to this one day, the day that you allow yourself to sleep in and eat takeout, the urge to indulge later on in the week will diminish. You'll also find, as the weeks go by, your day of rest will start to become less indulgent too, and even a little bit productive without you realizing. My day of rest is on Sunday, and I used to smoke weed and play videogames to wind down; now it doesn't really interest me at all; instead I do my laundry and read the books I don't have time for during the week.

Progressive Overload

This is a trap that many guys fall for, myself included.

"Tomorrow I will be a different person, I will do everything I need to do. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life"

It never lasts. Jumping straight into different habits all at once will have you crashing fast.

You are so desperate for immediate results you will hurt yourself and damage any progress you're making by going too fast.

Gradually adding different habits over time, solidifying initial ones before moving onto new ones, that's the only way to do it.

No one says "tomorrow I will deadlift 300 pounds, tomorrow is the first day of my powerlifting career" when they've never even set foot in gym

You will not be able to jump straight into running half marathons, studying 8 hours a day or cooking like a professional chef. You need to slowly ease into it.

I started out by just getting my diet sorted first. 3 good meals a day. Once I did that, exercising was easier, and I became disicplined with that. Once I was exercising properly, sleeping 8 hours each night was inevitable and easy. Once I could sleep, eat and train properly, meditation was an easy next step.

Take them one at a time and build on them like a pyramid. Add or improve on a new skill each day, one a day is enough. I guarantee you, progress will be faster than you think, and sometimes exponential. I was unable to even study for 30 mins the first time I sat in front of my books. The next day was an hour, then I could bust out two. I'm on four at the moment, and I'm trying to work my way up to 6. I know my limits.

Extended Cognition

At school, I learnt of a concept known as Extended Cognition. The idea is that you are not just the product of the data stored inside your head; rather, any data that is "you" stored in other places is also you; any tools that you use to navigate life are also you.

The watch on your hand is YOU, it is a part of your being. It is a tool for navigating the world just like your legs and arms are. A pad of paper with a "To Do" list is also you. It doesn't matter whether the "I need to do this today" concept is stored in your neurons or on the pad, it is still a part of your being. Your glasses, another organ, just an extra set of corneas, makes your perception better.

The calendar that you use to track the days, that is you. Your cell phone, a massive brain upgrade, a data bank used to store all the information and memories in an organised and compartmentalized way, that is you. You store your memories in your brain, but also as images on your phone. You store your ideas in your thoughts, but also as notes jotted down in an app.

Successful men use all the tools at their disposal to extend their being into the real world, increase their data capacity and recall, and organize their life. They use diaries and calendars and apps and lists and even secretaries to become more cognitive, and warp the world around them much more powerfully.

I'll give you an example: I learnt the hard way that whenever you have an idea, you must write it down immediately, because you will NEVER remember it later. You might remember that you had a cool idea, but you won't remember what it was, and it will furstrate you massively. After losing too many genius thoughts to this, I started immediately writing them down on my note app on my phone, an extra brain I carry around with me. In fact, this post was sparked by a thought I quickly jotted down. Without this extended cognition, I wouldn't have written a lot of the posts that have done so well and changed the lives of guys on here. Right now, my evernote app has 10+ potential TRP articles I intend to write, with short brainstorms, that I come up with while I'm commuting or lifting or sitting on the toilet. You never know when genius will hit you.

Meaningful Dopamine

So I'm gonna get flack for this post because it's so fucking long, but I don't care. I enjoy writing this shit and I know there are plenty of guys here who will read it all, and then go back and re-read it again. It's for them that I write, not the lazy assholes who are only here for masturbation.

In fact, you may have noticed I've recently been pumping these posts out like muslim babies. I've been writing a lot, and for good reason.

I am addicted to it. I love every aspect of it, I enjoy the writing, I could do it for hours. I enjoy sharing my ideas and arguing over them, and like an addict, I enjoy more than ever that little orange envelope telling me that someone has read and acknowledged my work.

These are my dopamine hits, and the only ones I allow myself to have.

I used to get my dopamine fix from video games and masturbation and social media and weed. I eventually cut that all out. This is what is known as cheap dopamine. Dopamine you did not have to earn, dopamine that is limitless and overindulgent.

This cheap dopamine addiction is fucking you up, truly it is, it's the scourge of our society remove all sources of cheap dopamine from your life, it is a drug you must ween yourself off.

But you still need dopamine, it's important for your growth and general well being. Where do you get it from though?

Generate your Dopamine from Meaningful Sources

Your dopamine should only ever come from the things in your life that give you meaning and help you grow. Once you stop overindulging in the drug, even a little hit will be enough to brighten your day. Take a walk in the sun, you instantly feel good. Finally master a song you've been practicing; ride that wave for a week. Beat that PR in at the gym and you feel on top of the fucking world.

Find what you love and use it as your dopamine source; you will become addicted to the drug, yet indulging in it will help you grow.

At the end of a long day, if I've studied enough, lifted, done all the things I need to do and am feeling beat, instead of sitting in front of the TV, I fire up my computer and write for theredpill for 3 hours. I lose myself in the work, enter Flow, proofread a few times, and then hit the submit button.

And every orange mail box telling me "hey man you just put so many pieces together for me, you're a great writer" or even "lol ur an autistic faggot" is enough for me to feel like I've earned my place in the world and I'm making a difference. And my writing improves with every post I make. I am growing, and enjoying myself while doing so.

Find your meaninful dopamine well, and tap into it

Flow

I can write for hours, in fact, it's been almost 5 hours since I started this very post. I literally haven't stopped typing since then, vomiting out the words as they escape my fingers, like a man possesed. I have not stopped to check social media, or my reddit messages. I have not taken any breaks. Pure, focused Flow.

If I could study like this I'd be a fucking genius, but sadly I cannot.

Flow is the magical mindframe you get when you lose yourself in something you love. We all Flow for different things, for me it's writing and playing my guitar. I can go for hours and not even realize it. Others flow while playing sports, or while solving problems under high pressure in their career, or public speaking, or poker.

We all have different Flow, yet we don't all make the most of it. This is super important, because the things you Flow with are the things that will be help you succeed at life.

Find what makes you Flow, and dedicate your life to it. You will have a much more meaningful life pursuing the things you love and are good at. If you have a career you hate, or are even just ambivalent about, yet a hobby you Flow with very well, then maybe you should consider a swap.


PART 3: EXAMPLES


I'm going to finish off this post with a description on how I carry out my day; mainly to brag, but also to give inspiration. I'm not operating at full capacity yet, but I'm almost there. If you're still here by now, here's your reward.

Yet I used to be such a fucking loser it's shameful. I'm not embarrassed to talk about my fuckups though, and I think it's important for great men (like me) to be open about their shortcomings, it teaches those who have no faith in themselves, and those full of self-hate, that it's entirely possible to achieve and rise like we did,

This is what my life looked like when I was at the lowest of my lows.

Depressed Losermode


I wake up around 11/12, dehydrated and feeling like absolute shit. I am hit instantly with the overwhelming need to smoke, but the bed is warm and I don't have the energy to get up. My first fap of the day is achieved through imagining me fucking my one-itis, the little morning testosterone I have allowing me to get hard without porn.

I scroll through reddit on my phone for roughly an hour and a half, and then facebook for a while. I don't have instagram or snapchat, but if I did, it would probably add another hour or two to my morning session.

Eventually the need to smoke is too much and I pull myself out of bed. I roll a joint (with too much tobacco) and smoke it by the window. I don't get high, instead I simply revert back to a "less shit" mode from my "really shit" mode. The weed is very quickly rejected and I rush to the toilet to throw up, but my stomach is empty and I dry heave for 10 minutes. My body still thinks I threw up though, and so floods me with the "post puke" endorphins. This + plus the THC is the only way I can feel high anymore.

I immediately smoke another joint, and then contort myself onto the sofa. My second fap of the day consists of me hitting up gonewild or amateur porn subreddits and wondering what it would be like to fuck some of the girls on there.

I put something on netflix but it's not stimulating enough, so while I "watch", I play games on my laptop or my phone. I do this for the next 4-6 hours, stopping only to roll more weed.

In order to achieve my third fap of the day, I have to watch teenage girls get gangbanged or do shit that makes me mad. I get angry but horny and manage a few spurts of cum. It doesn't even feel good, but I've removed the itch to fap and that's all that matters.

At some point I start feeling very very ill and realise it is around 7pm and I have yet to eat anything. I drag myself into the kitchen, which has piled up with dishes. I have no bowls, so I wash a bowl, put the kettle on and make some instant noodles. I'm so hungry it tastes like the best thing I've ever eaten. I use the same bowl for cereal afterwards, and smoke weed to make the most of the sugar rush. This is my meal of the day.

I get through 2-3 grams of weed throughout the day, smoking it like cigarettes.

I play games and watch netflix until it's around 11pm, where I migrate to my bed and continue there. The creeping urge to masturbate returns, and my fourth fap of the day consists of me beating my soft dick trying to make hard. I browse around for more fucked up porn, but the whole shit/piss thing still disgusts me, and the porn only works for about a minute before I get bored. I eventually resort to watching women fuck animals (what a fucking blackpill that is) until I'm angry enough to dry cum, this takes roughly an hour or more.

I fall asleep playing a game on my phone. The next morning I wake up feeling like death.

Repeat. For two fucking weeks. Sometimes I remember to shower.


What fucking hell that period of my life was. I lost pretty much all my muscle and weight, 2 years worth of progress. and could not even bench the bar when I eventually returned to the gym

Once I pulled myself out, I vowed to never, EVER, return to that point again. How fucking pathetic. Laugh at me all you want, this was me for a while.

This is me now.


Ubermensch Mode

My alarm is set for 6:20 but I wake before it, as I have every day these past few weeks. I immediately open the curtains and let the light flood the room. I lay in bed contemplating life for about 20 mins before I get up. My phone is charging in the other room, nowhere near my bed. I make my bed immediately, fighting entropy as the first thing I do.

I down a glass of water, then hit the shower immediately. I start off warm because I'm still a pussy, but gradually shift it to ice cold by the end. I stand under the ice water and count to 22. Yesterday was 21 and tomorrow will be 23.

Once dry, I have my first breakfast, tea, yoghurt and fruit. This stimulates my appetite. I then take Vitamin D and C, Zinc, Cod Liver Oil, 5-HTP and Lions Mane Mushroom. I then begin cleaning my flat; there isn't much to do because I keep on top of things mostly. Fuck off entropy. I then wash my dishes from the night before and use that time to think about the day ahead and reflect. Once I'm done, I do my Wim Hof breathing exercises for 10 minutes, then meditate for 10 mins.

I then write myto-do list for the day. I do this every morning. If I do not, I forget what I need to do. I don't use fancy apps or trackers or anything like that, a simple list is enough. At the end of the day, I count up what I managed to do vs what I intended to do, and give myself a percentage score. I aim to always be above 60% minimum, with 80% being a goal.

Once I'm done, I either blast music loud to get myself pumped or put on a podcast. I cook my second breakfast, depending on what I'm feeling. I enjoy cooking and plan my meals on the whiteboard I have in my kitchen, writing down the meals I know how to cook (otherwise I forget) and ordering what I'll cook on what days.

I have my breakfast, which is never less than 1000kcal, and a protein gainer shake with creatine, almost another 1000 calories and then pack my bag for the day. I then practice my guitar for roughly an hour. I do this in the morning so i can avoid the morning commute rush, and also out of respect for my neighbors. I return late in the evening and it is unfair to them to be playing at that time.

I leave for school, and commute the 30 mins to my university. At school I first stop by the chapel and spend 10 minutes absorbing the numinous and constructing the rest of the day in my head, more meditation. I then hit the library and go over everything I studied the day before, using questions I find online to test myself on the material. I do this for an hour.

I then hit the gym and lift for roughly an hour. I do 5/3/1 with BBB and other accessories. I shoot the shit with the management, and gym bunnies stare at me as I deadlift. It feels good. Easy, meaningful dopamine.

After the gym I have a snack, and then study new material for 2 hours. I use the pomodoro method and do 4 pomodoros. I then hit the school cafeteria and have lunch, replying to my reddit comments as I do so. After that, I study for 4 more pomodoros, and then heat up the leftovers from yesterday and answer more reddit messages.

Once I'm done I travel 30 mins to my tutees house, and I teach a 16 year old girl basic chemistry for $60 an hour. I teach her for 1.5 hours. She hangs on every word I say and keeps touching the inside of her thighs, and fiddling with her hair/neck. She started off failing miserably, now she's top of her class. How convenient...

I travel home during rush hour and hate it, but distract myself with chess against the computer on my phone. I lose a lot.

I get home at roughly 7pm, and relax for about 30 mins. I then cook a meal, whatever I had planned at the beginning of the week, and I really enjoy the act of cooking itself, the precision timing and the aesthetics and the art. I eat my meal while browsing reddit. At about 8 pm one of two things happens. I either sit in front of my laptop and write a long ass reddit post, vomiting all the ideas that I came up with throughout the day OR I get a pussy delivery and a plate shows up at my door (pre-planned). I fuck the plate or fuck the minds of TRP readers for a while.

The plate has two options, she either leaves and goes home, or she stays with the knowledge that my bedtime is strictly 10pm and I'll be getting up at 6am in the morning. Most leave, which I prefer, I need the alone time, and I only need her for sex anyway. Some decide to stay, and I wake them up with sex in the morning and make them do the dishes.

Before bed, I write in my diary and drink a glass of Casein. I note anything interesting or out of the ordinary that happened, and any insights throughout the day.

Around 10 I hit the sack, I attempt to read but am normally too sleepy; I never read as much as I'd like to. I fall asleep immediately and without realizing, I do not lie awake at all.

Repeat, for the past month.


This is how I live my life now, and I fucking love it. I feel so on top of things and massively in control. I feel like I'm living at maximum potential, a real fucking superman. I am the happiest and most fulfilled I have been in my life. I probably won't be able to keep it up, and will crash at one point; but I have been giving myself rest days and not being too hard on myself when I fail, so getting back on the horse won't be hard.

I would like to hear, from Vanguards and Endorsed Contributors, their own accounts of their Ubermensch days in the comments. I'm sure some of you operate so much better than I do, and I'm genuinely interested in what kind of people you are.


In Conclusion

Hopefully this post has given you a taste of what it is like to be a Higher Man and the philosophy and mindset needed, and hopefully, along with the methods I set out, you are inspired and able to emulate this mindset and in your own lives. We all have the capability to do so, we just need a push to become the best we can be, super fucking human.

I think back to my father, and how much he achieved in his life before dying. Did he win The Game of Life? Was he just a loser who died too early and fucked it up for his kids?

My dad grew up on a farm in a third world country, they shat in holes and had a well for water. My dad had to live through communism. He hiked to school across a mountain every day, and got himself a place at university, and then the army as an engineer. He found himself a beautiful but BDP girl, and had a kid with her, but she stillbirthed.So they tried again and had me. Eventually the communism and the war was getting too much, so he smuggled himself out of the country and into the UK. He didn't get caught. The dude, with an engineering degree, cleaned toilets and sold furniture while earning his accounting qualifications; and brought his family over. He moved them from a shithole flat in an immigrant-crime neighborhood to a rented house in a quiet town, to eventually, saving up the money for a deposit on a real house. Then he got cancer.

My father lived two lives, surviving poverty and communism and rising high in the ranks, and then starting from scratch in a foreign country and still fucking bossing it, his climbing speed was tremendous, almost exponential.

I was always so baffled by my father during the last few weeks of his life; he was so chill, so accepting, so stoic. I couldn't understand why, the dude was collapsing into death. But now I get it.

He was a winner, through and through, and he knew it. He knew that he achieved tremendously in his life, and that his kids would turn out great. My dad died with a smile on his face.

Great post.

I looked into self-actualization and flow pretty deeply a couple months ago. Nice to see them brought up here.

I am convinced that, in a lot of cases, flow is a main differentiator between those who achieve great things and those who do not. When you're in flow, the activity you're doing feels restorative, as opposed to tiring or tedious. This is a huge distinction since, when two people finish the same activity, the one who experienced flow will feel invigorated while the other will need rest or downtime to recover.

Flow is a key element to many 'peak experiences' which are like little hits of self-actualization that keep you motivated to stay on the path to full mastery of your chosen mission. When you enjoy a fully-immersive flow experience, it becomes a lot easier to develop outcome independence and amused mastery because you have a rich inner-world that doesn't require any extrinsic validation to be rewarding.

Sex God Method feels to me like a 'fake it til you make it' guide to turning sex into a flow experience. In fact, I'd say that for sex to be good for a woman, it MUST be a flow experience: a fully immersive experience that overwhelms and envelops their entire being and feels like it replaces their normal consciousness, however fleetingly. Almost like a waking dream. More like surfing on the tip of the wave where passion, skill and challenge meet.

[–]3d_truth 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Great post. And I believe through meditation we can increase our chances of unlocking flow state in our daily activities. Our minds, used incorrectly, are the antagonists of flow state.

the one who experienced flow will feel invigorated while the other will need rest or downtime to recover.

This is the distinction between extrovert and introvert.

[–]cornerofficemouth 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Interesting. I hadn't considered how my words could apply to the distinction between intro/extrovert. It would help me to understand the effortlessness some people have in talking/socializing. As an introvert, I require time to 'recover' from social situations. I'd just considered it to be part of my software. Your short response has me thinking a little differently about that. Thanks.

[–]Chaddeus_Rex 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You are 100% right about flow, your description of it corresponds to my experience.

Long before I know what flow was, I would notice there were soccer games where the game felt effortless - I would run tirelessly as if I was Apollo incarnate, I would have amazing ball control and be like a one man defense stopping most opponents from passing through and scoring. At these moments I felt no conciousness, that is, my whole being was immersed in the Game, there was nothing BUT the Game. After the Game ended, I felt pleasantly tired and on top of the world. It was an exquisite feeling. However, on other Games I would stumble and trip over myself and I was self-concious and my Game was not good. I never understood what caused this until I learned about flow.

The first time I had sex was a Flow experience for me. I still remember it to this day. The girl was a thin Chinese girl with a butterface. But I just lost myself in enjoying it, I thought of nothing outside the moment and was not concerned with anything, just enjoying the experience. Everything she did turned me on. Feeling her drip on my lap made me harder than diamonds and she she even said she felt flattered by this. We fucked all night and used up 4 condoms. My dick was swollen after lol. And her mind was blown that she texted me every week for about a year to meet up and fuck but I was hesitant because I got afraid and felt in my head the next time we fucked. I have not been able to achieve that flow experience in sex ever since. So you are 100% right about sex needing to be a flow experience to be amazing.

[–]JesusTheThird3 107 points108 points  (13 children)

Good analytical understanding.

As the natural antogonist that I am I have a few points

  • Just because everyone's ancestors was a winner in life's lottery doesn't mean you are. Statistically half of the living men will be genetic losers. You are not a winner by the merit of your existance, the winner could be your brother, or cousin, you maybe just the one rotten seed. 50% is the number.

  • Regarding your month of ubermensch mode. Good job on monk mode, I don't buy the nightly plate, and unless you're doing them raw you are just blowing a load in a rubber and feeding your self some oxytocin. Besides the 'maybe bullshit' aspect of this. One thing you have to think about is sustainability. Can you do this for 1 year? 5 years? 10 years? I tell this to everyone who asks me for health, fitness, or life advice. Can you do this for 10 years? At your level in life you don't understand what 10 years is or what it even means. A good plan is not one you can pull off for a month. Life has it's ups and downs and general turbulence. At the end of the day, what distinguishes the good from the elite is consistency and longevity.

  • Lastly don't confuse training with winning. Being a university student, getting some ass while working on your health is not winning. It is training. Good luck with the latter.

And I have really liked your other posts, some points struck me especially the autist shit you sprew - as sadly one can relate. But this one has way too much ego in it and needs a hard check.

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

I do not plate more than 2-3 times a week, its just overindulgance after that point.

This reminds me of something Makishima Shogo, the antagonist from Psycho Pass, said. According to him, a good plan doesn't mean having everything go within expectations, rather what it means is that the plan has enough plasticity to deal with unforeseen circumstances. In OP's case, he does mention not being able to keep it up and having already thought of how to deal with the inevitable crash :

I probably won't be able to keep it up, and will crash at one point; but I have been giving myself rest days and not being too hard on myself when I fail, so getting back on the horse won't be hard.

[–]purplecabbage 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Can you elaborate on the distinction you draw between going raw and using a condom? It seems like the latter was being diminished and not as much of an 'accomplishment' as the former.

[–]inhiarashi 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I don't understand that either. Going raw is horrible advice for many reasons.

First and foremost you can get a plate pregnant. My child will cost me a MINIMUM of 255,000 over the 18 years she is considered my property.

In my mind this is only my half of the cost, her mother pays the other continuous bills and invests a massive amount of her time.

You are better of being a sad and angry WINNER than a happy and content LOSER

This isn't your life, you do not own it. You carry the burden of every single one of your ancestors on your shoulders.

I don't know about this part. 1st of all, who gives a fuck about what our ancestors did. I don't owe them shit. I'm going to live my life for me, not for some dead person i'm imagining in my mind.

Secondly. I have to question this belief that ruthlessly striving towards self improvement and achieving goals is the way to 'win' life. I would rather be a happy loser than a sad winner. Happiness is something worth striving for. Deep down this is why we better ourselves, we hope that after our struggles we will be happy. By ignoring happiness, we become Pavlov's dogs, salivating over the bell and not the meal.

I've seen enough examples of people who achieved all of their wildest dreams and then realized that that wasn't it, that didn't make them feel happy of fulfilled.

There is no way to win life. Its like an RPG but with no point to it. You can spend your entire time acquiring gold and power, convincing yourself that you are leveling up and 'winning'. But alas, there is no end game boss.

I'm mainly playing devils advocate here. In actuality I feel very conflicted about this topic and just wanted to open a discussion. But I think the answer lies within Buddhas advice to live the 'middle path'. Which means to fall inbetween ruthlessly acquiring wealth and power, and spending your life meditating in a cave to achieve peace and happiness.

[–]Chaddeus_Rex 4 points5 points  (1 child)

1st of all, who gives a fuck about what our ancestors did.

What your ancestors did is directly relevant and important to your life. There is a reason why ancestors where revered (even more highly than the Gods) in Ancient cultures. It was thought that ones ancestors were an important aspect for giving ones life a direction for it was thought that the Ancestors would sit in judgement over ones deeds and that they had to be valorous and worthy of praise.

[–]El_Reconquista 8 points9 points  (7 children)

Happiness is a byproduct of the journey. There is no "after our struggles" and there is no meal. You always keep reaching for more (not neccesarily wealth and power, but personal accomplishment). You achieve your dream, you find a new dream. If you're not going forward you're going backwards.

Eastern philosophy is highly overrated.

[–]3d_truth 7 points8 points  (6 children)

I agree with you what you said execpt your last sentence. Why do you think eastern philosophy is over rated?

A knowledge and application of eastern philosophy will ensure happiness will become a byproduct of any path we take. And by making us more in control of our own minds, it also makes us more likely to achieve our dreams.

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Your current enhanced life model is excellent. It is a good start for you to grow into something more than you've ever thought you could achieve. You seem to still be in school. This is Stage 2 of the game of life. There are many more stages. Keep your head level. You are on the right track. Go play your guitar with strangers in jam activities. Meet more people if you're not already being a social animal. Networking will get you much farther than drive alone. I wasted 10 years focused on my LTR and on self improvement without networking (the wife'S network was my only network). Now I have a great physique and make respectable cash, but I could have had a great network and made ten times more. Expand your focus to uncomfortable levels. Never stop. Cheers.

[–]serious_bs 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Fuck being 'happy', that's just another myth pushed on us to make us content with mediocrity. You are better off being a sad and angry WINNER than a happy and content LOSER.

I don't really agree, and neither do you I think:

I am the happiest and most fulfilled I have been in my life.

If you tell people that they have to swallow the pill, work their asses of, build discipline, .. while the result is not being happy but sad and angry, then who would like to swallow the pill? Who would want to live a sad and angry life instead of a content one?

I think the point you should make, is that happiness an extreme opposite of a passive life. TRP and being a high man brings happiness, as you write yourself, and it does so because it makes you achieve the goals you set. It's hard, and achieving that feels good. Furthermore, there is no 'end point' of eternal happiness (see hedonic treadmill), which is also a point you could make. Hence happiness is not a goal, but it is achieved in the pursuit of happiness, by finding your flow as you mention, put your time and effort in, finding what you LOVE instead of what you believe you love, or are told to. Getting satisfaction from that, from achieving the goals you set, from being conscious of your value, your place in society.

In the blue pill mind, the happiness goal is reached when you enter a relationship and court your woman. Hence "happily ever after" in romantic comedies and fairy tales.

What a great post. Very aggressive, uncompromising and non-apologetic - exactly what many men need to hear in times of "feels over reals", feminization of boys and collectivism (which is the opposite of achieving individual greatness).

While the philosophy aspect was mentioned, I think it would make sense to point people in a concrete direction. I'm particularly fond of Stefan Molyneux's philosophy show on YouTube, where he touches on a huge variety of subjects through the lens of rational philosophy, ranging from the fascinating dynamic of sexual market value between men and women, leftist indoctrination, female responsibility avoidance, the fall of western civilization, the role of IQ in societies and the truth about “diversity”, to name a few. Get involved in self-knowledge, people. Biggest favor you can do for yourself.

Moreover, I think the section about "the flow" is wonderful - a very interesting and fundamental concept which is criminally underdiscussed. I've also heard of it being referred to as "being in the zone". You often hear people saying "find your passion in life". But what does that mean? It means finding a productive activity which permits you to enter the flow and force open the doors of the zone.

While some people might think it silly, I’d suggest watching the following eight-minute excerpt from an anime, which touches on “the zone” or “the flow”. It might be ridiculous and over the top, but in terms of what the zone can achieve, it is not exaggerated. Of course, it’s a dramatic representation of the zone for story-telling purposes. Entering the zone doesn’t happen at once in an explosive fashion, just because you decide that might be nice. Being able to enter the zone or get in the flow is the reward for running many months or years of (metaphorical) marathons - not just one sprint. The same analogy holds true for any sort of motivation. If you want to achieve something of real value, you’re never running a sprint, you’re always running a marathon.

My own flow or zone is certainly not achieved in basketball. I get in the zone for e-commerce and web-shops. I love that shit and often times don’t notice the hours whizzing by. If you can identify what you yourself can get in the zone for, you’ve taken a huge step in terms of self-improvement.

[–]destruct_zero 1 points1 points [recovered]

What you've described here is not Nietzsche's Ubermensch, but simply the concept of achieving happiness by performing within a framework of obedience to the values already held by society. Your idea of 'winning' is everyone's idea of winning. It's a reactive struggle to defeat other forces.

The Ubermensch finds his own meaning of 'value', because he rightly concludes that value cannot be arrived at objectively through reason or logic. He has no interest in achieving the herd's idea of success.

[–]itiswr1tten 1 points1 points [recovered]

You write like an unhinged monk, baring your organ meat to the world with no shame. Your life is a series of routines, which I consider to be the intermediate step to true happiness. The final step is different for all of us (some men cannot stay on track without routine) but I imagine it top be "when my improvised and my planned have identical success rates". Style is interesting albeit long winded, but your self awareness is impressive. You could condense this by 25% and lose none of the message.

Your dark period sounds like absolute purgatory, a meaningless existence. Worse than hell. I wonder how many readers live some version of this. It's even worse to put that percentage in terms of all western men. I bet it's 33%.

My ubermensch goes like this:

  • alarm goes off at 7:08am, as I always set it at some random time before 7:30
  • snooze the alarm once. It's a nice little pleasure
  • exit bed. Open work email. Answer none but categorize anything that requires action
  • before I leave the house, define which prospects I'm going to focus on today.
  • arrive at office. If I have a pitch, print everything, read it once for proof, then put it in the bag and ignore it until game time
  • break for lunch (1st days meal) @11am, lunch meetings are the movie dates of selling and I don't do them
  • call or visit prospect. Establish in 30 minutes or less if I want them as a client with a driven, agenda based conversation that I lead
  • if I'm pitching, read the Executive Summary in the car before walking in. Internalize my value proposition and make it seem like the prospect's idea
  • leave the pitch completely fucking indifferent to the end result
  • go to the gym. Do my 5/3/1 and leave
  • get home and shower, then do 25mins of Duolingo (Estoy hablando bien ahora)
  • play an hour or less of video games with the bros who live elsewhere
  • shut off all screens and read for 15-30mins until ready to pass out

After couple of hours i tried smoking another one and i felt so disgusted because all i wanted was to feel good and be comfortable but my mind was telling me to stop and get your shit together. Havent smoked weed once after that and now the only time I'm gonna touch weed is when i accomplish my goals as a reward.

Dude, this post cemented and changed my life, thank you so fucking much

It was all things I'd heard before and a way of living I'm currently trying to achieve and getting better at everyday and always finding a way to fine tune, and then your final section hit me.

If you've ever taken LSD then maybe you can relate to having super 'trippy' sober run of the mill days where the universe just throws together a totally '''normal''' day for you that somehow goes on to feel like it was exactly what you needed at that point in your life.

I was right about to go to sleep and then opened your post as a final send-off. I was reading 'In Conclusion' when something clicked, something inside me realised "holy fuck this could've literally been written by me, this is a letter from myself to myself" (kind of thought).

I had a huge fight with my parents earlier this evening, like life shattering where I firmly believed that once I moved out from home we'd be forever estranged, but after everyone calmed down father and son spoke for 2-3 hours and a new direction and meaning was given to me. Then I saw it

My dad grew up on a farm in a third world country, they shat in holes and had a well for water. My dad had to live through communism. He hiked to school across a mountain every day, and got himself a place at university, and then the army as an engineer. He found himself a beautiful but BDP girl, and had a kid with her, but she stillbirthed. So they tried again and had me. Eventually the communism and the war was getting too much, so he risked death and smuggled himself out of the country and into the UK. He didn't get caught. The dude, with an engineering degree, cleaned toilets and sold furniture while earning his accounting qualifications; and brought his family over. He moved them from a shithole flat in an immigrant-crime neighborhood to a rented house in a quiet town, to eventually, saving up the money for a deposit on a real house. Then he got cancer....rising high in his home country, and then starting from scratch at the bottom in a foreign country and still fucking bossing it, his climbing speed was tremendous.

My turn:

My dad grew up in a 1 bedroom apartment with 6 others in a third world country, they shat in holes and had a well for water. My dad had to live through communism. He hiked to school across a mountain every day, and got himself a place at university, and then the army as an engineer. He found himself a beautiful but BDP girl, and had a kid with her, but she stillbirthed. So they tried again and had me. Eventually the communism and the war was getting too much, so he risked death and smuggled himself out of the country and into the UK Canada. He didn't get caught. The dude, with an engineering degree, washed dishes and slept 3 hours a night while earning his software dev qualifications; and brought his family over. He moved them from a shithole flat in an immigrant-crime neighborhood to a rented house in a quiet town, to eventually, saving up the money for a deposit on a real house. Then he got cancer.

To the very T we have very similar backgrounds, from the ideology of the homeland of our parents, to both our mothers being a little cuckoo, to being technically the "2nd" child. I'm so sorry to hear about your father, and until the day my father passes away will live my life in accordance with the principles you have so clearly outlined out of respect to myself, to my father and family, and in memory of your father

Thank you so very much man, you have no idea how close to home this post feels. I'll be reading it at least once a month until I turn to dust.

Godspeed

This is true gift, i woke up for the big game ahead. Thanks!!!

[–]smyger 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Best post I have read on TRP. Really gr8 thanks for insight. Do you still keep a social media account? Is it essential for social circle game to post on social media?

[–]redd_reality 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You are the descendent of murdering rapists.

What a sobering fucking concept. But utterly true in all regards. Makes me and my life look like a complete twat waffle.

Will continue reading later. Great so far, op.

[–]mnemos_1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

And so, for the rest of this day, my brain will tease me with hints of just what a "twat waffle" might look like.

[–]Run_Che 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you for this post. How old were you in thise two shitty weeks you described, and roughly how long did it take to change that. Im also curious about what triggered the change?

[–]BobSagetV2 1 points1 points [recovered]

Very thorough and insightful post. A few thoughts:

  • What's your experience with Lion's Mane? I've read about it but it seems to be very much pseudoscience with little backing its immense claims.

  • Does this ever get tiring? I understand the satisfaction your schedule generates but the constant grind seems to get exhausting after long enough.

  • At what age did you start to develop yourself into what you are today? Just curious as to what stage of life this applies to.

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

I have microdosed psilocybin before; lions mane feels similar. No noticeable effects until you stop taking it.

It doesnt get tiring, I have scheduled rest days, and watching myself improve makes it worth it.

I am 23, I began seriously at 20 after finding TRP and abusing psychedelics hard. I cycled between highs and lows, becoming disciplined and then failing into depression and addiction. Every time, I got back on the horse and started again from scratch; and each time the recovery was quicker and I pushed higher than before.

[–]BobSagetV2 1 points1 points [recovered]

Where do you buy Lion's Mane from and how much do you take?

[–]S-Blaze 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is a great motivational post to kick it in the game ( or cage ).

The true redpill though is understanding that this place, the earth, is technically a fucking prison and that you are basically, a source of energy for the beings at the top of the pyramid.

Now go on work on yourself, but if you want a wise tip don't get blinded by the rat race. Because it's gonna mean fuckall when you pass over to the other side.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

/u/Heathcliff-- I love that you are pumping these out like muslim babies!

Your posts are inspiring and I am always happy to see that you have made one. I hope to one day have you comment on a post that I have written.

I also have a notebook on my Evernote app called "million dollar ideas"

What is your favourite work of Nietzsche?

[–]Yonski3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fuck being 'happy', that's just another myth pushed on us to make us content with mediocrity. You are better off being a sad and angry WINNER than a happy and content LOSER.

strongly disagree with you on this point. why in the fuck would I want to be sad and angry? sounds like a horrible stressful life.

I would easily choose to be happy and content poor fuck who doesn't get any pussy then to be a depressed and angry millionaire who is drowning in pussy.

Nature does not give a shit if you are happy or not. Do you think the men at the top of the world are 'happy'? Absolutely not. Their lives are messy and dramatic and stressful;

I agree with you on this point. nature do not care if we are happy. but does that mean we need to be slaves to this blind mechanism that keep pushing us to find the cheese in the end of the maze?

[–]mishasam89 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Your info on self actualization comes very close yet is followed by volumes of info that can be extremely detrimental if not stated clearly.

A self actualized man does things because he wants to do them, not because some other guy or girl says they should. He strives for a goal because he wants to strive for that goal, not because he's afraid of being a weakling. He gets sex because he wants and enjoys getting sex, not because someone will think less of him if he did. The man works towards he own desires for his own reasons, not because another entity influenced him and told him what those desires and reasons should be.

The key to all this is the source of the desire and who's controlling who. This isn't about hamstering away failures or creating excuses to not pursue dreams but about the man looking inside and realizing on he can generate happiness for himself. It's about internal empowerment instead of external empowerment because anything outside of ourselves can be destroyed. As long as a man is basing his self actualization and happiness on an internal state of being he is invincible.

[–]Fulp_Piction 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Fuck the haters getting butthurt about your 'ego,' you wouldn't have admitted how pathetic you were if you were truly narcissistic.

You've lain out a realistic plan and mindset thats attainable by anyone here and will improve people's lives if implemented, and above all you barely mentioned a woman in the entire post.

Question time: you make it sound easy but we all know it's not, what makes it work when you can't pull yourself out of bed or slip up?

[–]BornShook 2 points3 points  (10 children)

What hard drugs to you recomend doing? Which ones are worth trying, and which are to be avoided at all costs? I previously had been against trying hard drugs, because I was in a fragile mental state at the time. I know im in the right mindstate now to expieriment though.

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

Psychedelics, and maybe Coke occasionally. Stay away from all opiods or amphetamines. No joke. Absolutely stay away from these. Don't even taste them.

LSD, Psilocybin, MDMA, DMT; these are all life-givers. They give you more humanity and extend your consciousness.

All other drugs, especially heroine and meth, are life-takers. They steal life from you and make you less human.

[–]BornShook 1 point2 points  (6 children)

I already take adderall for adhd. I cannot function without it. It sucks, but Ive been meaning to give shrooms and acid a try.

What precautions should I take to make sure I have a good expierience? Ik i could probably find this info online, but I want the rp opinion on this

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

I'm a crazy fuck so my first ever trip was the McKenna trip. Heroic dose in dark silence. 5g in the dark, with just your bed and your thoughts.

I thoroughly enjoyed it, but not everyone can handle that.

[–]BornShook 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Crazy shit man. Im gonna do some shit when I get a day off.

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

You need 2. One for the trip and the next day as recovery.

[–]BornShook 1 points1 points [recovered]

What if I day trip? Half a tab early in the morning, another late in the morning, do most of my daily activities, then get to sleep at a semi-normal time. Would I still realisticly need a recovery day, or will I just feel marginally shitty the next day?

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

For an experienced tripper, yea. For your first time, you need a recovery day.

It's not that you will be physically beat; rather you will be emotionally and spiritually drained. And a day of sober rest and contemplation is important afterwards. You will want to spend your day writing and planning your life and exercising and cleaning your apartment; this is the true strength of the psychedlic trip, the experience itself is amazing, but its the life-fixing and mindset shift that you're really after. You cannot do that if you have to jump back into your old life immediately.

[–]1empatheticapathetic 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Coke is an amphetamine. Speed is basically coke for the same effects. Speed and m cat is way better in fact.

False. Im no expert on chemistry but I know this much from highschool, so I shall share you my knoledge:

Cocaine is coc-ain. Its an 'ain'. Meth-Amphetamine is an amphetamine. Dextro-Amphetamine is an amphetamine. Etc.

[–]odue 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I have to say that this was a great and inspiring post. But your daily routine sounds terribly packed and solely self centered. What do you do for others? What do you do for your community? Do you do anything without any personal gain/advantage? When do you have time to enjoy yourself, to enjoy life, to enjoy being carried away in the moment without constantly checking the clock for your bed time? Sounds like you take away your own freedom. How can true happiness arise?

[–]drummerguy1423 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You loving that zionist indoctrination camp yet?

20 books on any topic of your choice is worth a Bachelors degree. Costs less than $1000. And ultimately you gain something more valuable: your OWN real raw organic thoughts. Real human thought.

[–]1roadmaptonowhere 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Outstanding read. This is what this sub is all about.

If you chose to take the Red Pill, it means you want the truth more than comfort. This means no more butterflies and rainbows. No more Prince Charming. No more making things right with “this one girl”. No more “just be yourself”. That’s wholesomememes. That’s the blue pill. You’ve stepped out of Plato’s cave, where the light may blind you at first, but it will set you free. Beware that, once you’ve swallowed the pill, there is no way back. The Red Pill, just like the truth, is amoral.

Life doesn’t give a fuck about what you think it should be like. We don’t either. We want the truth beyond right and wrong. There’s a path you’re told to take and you truly believe it will make you feel like a complete human being, but it won’t, because it only serves societies plans and necessities. You’re made to believe that money equals happiness, only to find out it really doesn’t – you’re chasing a phantom. You’re made to believe that love is the ultimate value, but the romanticized version of love proliferating in societies doesn’t exist. Love is a mixture of chemicals and hormones travelling your bloodstream. Love is you mind-fucking yourself into thinking that that girl is somehow special.

What is left in the equation is yourself.

But you see all that, and because you see all that, you see through every little shit test a girl throws at you. You see life as the big fucking joke it is. You see God’s perverse sense of humor. You see all that, and you smile, and nobody knows why you have this stupid smile on your face.

You must know something everybody else don’t.

I'm just starting my TRP journey, slowly adding healthier habits and removing unhealthy ones, not really knowing what I'm doing or if this time I'm going to be strong enough to keep myself above the water or if I'm going to sink right back down like many times before. Reading this gave me hope. Hope that I too one day can enjoy life without feeling miserable afterwards. I was like you were, maybe not to that extent but close enough. I now know my goal, or at least how a version of my goal looks like. One thing at a time though. Back go coding.

[–]majorketone 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Since you're in university I can't imagine you're much older than me. I've gotten much more productive with my days than I used to, but their is still way too much dead time. You've definitely inspired me to put more effort into my day. Im bookmarking this so please don't delete it. Or better yet try and get it put on the sidebar.

[–]iknowthewhey 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Great transformation and I'm sure this will inspire a lot of people.

How is your social circle? I keep a pretty strict routine but I always make time to go out with friends, play basketball, socialize etc. Do you spend any time on this? I have found too strict of a routine is bad and it is important not to isolate yourself.

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

I also agree that a rigid routine can damage your social life.

I have a small group of close friends who I trust and value, I do not have many acquaintances, or a large 'squad'. I often hang out 1 on 1 with my friends, and get my social fix that way. I find it hard to associate with people I'm not 100% on. Just feels fake. My true friendships have lasted for years and have stood the filter of time, even through long distance we still maintain contact and skype and the such.

[–]SpaderAce 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I loved this dude, it's exactly what I'm trying to accomplish in my own life so it's just the inspiration I needed. My loser mode was similar to yours, the worst of it actually while I was living out of a van with my brother, while working full time and barely managing to make it to the next paycheck even with both of ours, but now I've put my life together and am done with weed (though the urges still return from time to time). My older brother on the other hand is still on losermode, not sure how to help him since nobody can make somebody change, the desire has to come from oneself, but he consistently asks me how I've turned my life around so profoundly.

I woke up one day and realized I had forgotten my dreams. So I put them back at the forefront of my mind, and I'm working towards them every day since. It's a struggle, but every day gets better than the last. I'll keep looking out for your posts, every one I read adds more to my life. I'm very close to Ubermensch mode, just gotta get the bedtime in order lol.

Edit: definitely sidebar material

Thanks TRP and Heathcliff.

Seems like I'm a bit late for the party, but I am still going to give you that little dopamine for this post. It was some eye opening shit for me on some parts, and I was feeling quite bad for your lowest parts of your life. Keep up the good work man, not that I need to tell you that.

[–]ExoChrome 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like it. While this is not sidebar material, this is definitely the first thing i would share if i were to introduce someone to TRP. It focuses on self-improvement and self-actualizing, and your personal anecdote/life story is perfect as an example of improvement. The materials in the sidebar are rough and can make the average person blanch, so it's hard to introduce people to TRP using the sidebar. But this one is not. It's perfect as an introduction to TRP.

[–]Marr0w1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Good post.

1) How did it take you 5 hours to write a post?

2) How do you afford to live like that as a student?

3) My day looks pretty similar to yours, in terms of flow/dead time, which I suppose is good. Vices? I drink a lot.

4) I never had the luxury/misfortune of having a really bad beta phase like you describe. It's only since I've started flatting that I was aware it was even possible to live like that (all my friends/acquaintances were through work, or similar people). Living with people my age who live in constant 'dead-time' smoking weed and watching tv makes me glad I haven't wasted much of my life, and is what drives me to keep grinding with every bit of free time/energy I have.

[–]moltenw 1 point2 points  (3 children)

So... lets say my ancestors are blue pills and just strafed through life and had children just because that's how it should be...that's called winning?

If I don't have children but I'm full TRP, while my blue pill friend has a shitty marriage and has two children who don't respect him... who is actually the winner here?

That gene/ancestor crap is bullshit, imo. I couldn't care less about my ancestors, I only believe in myself and people who are actually important to me.

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

You have to consider, as an entity, what are you?

You are not your body, because your body is just a very advanced protein shell to protect your genes. A survival mechanism.

You are not your consciousness, because once again, your consciousness is just another tool your body produces in order to help you navigate the world and beat all the other organisms. To protect your genes and duplicate them as much as possible.

You ARE your genes. That is the fundamental unit of your being, the pattern that repeats and tries its best to be conserved, through protein protection and conciosuness mechanisms alike.

So you exist as DNA and DNA only, that is truly who you are as a genetic being; and the DNA you are is also the DNA your parents had, you are your parents, and your siblings, and everyone else you share genes with. You exist outside your body, in other organism. You and I have the same Sodium-Potassium ATPase enzyme gene. It's not your gene or my gene, it's our gene, it's us. This is why we are altruistic, we help the copies of our genes in other people, because it aids our survival in the long run.

So your very existence in the universe depends on the survival of your genes, that is your purpose in life, to exist, to beat entropy.

Read The Selfish Gene by Dawkins, he explains this well, and goes on to expand in The Extended Genotype.

And to answer your question, the blue pill guy who procreates is the winner, because in one generation he exists and you do not, and that is the fundamental battle of life. Nature doesnt give two shits about your philosophy or ideology or how happy or content you are. You either exist or you die.

Your "Loser depressed mode" is all too familiar, and your rise from that pit of mediocrity is motivating... in the sense of both inspiration and the need to compete with you.

Thanks for the post... saved, and I'd like to animate some aspects of this as a series, as I've been animating other Red Pill Posts.

I've been contemplating this idea, that our time is ticking away, and many waste it mindlessly watching stupid videos, gameshows, just hypnotizing themselves into stupidity, everyday. This was the post I needed.

TRP has become the reddit space for men who are committed to self actualizing.

Music to my ears. That is what coaches do, help people who are committed to self-actualizing.

Kegan's Interindividual stage is the final stage in his adult developmental theory corresponding to "self-actualization" and only 1% of people reach this stage, often only with the help of a spiritual guru or a religious conversion.

But it is a very good goal to set and that is what sets Red Pill men apart from other men. We are mindful of the goal of self-improvement and becoming more masculine and strong men. Right there that puts you in the top quarter of men.

We attract a lot of losers here, depressed betas, sad soyboys, fat midlife crises-ers

Just because he has not unplugged doesn't make a man a "loser." I agree if he has the opportunity to see the truth and he turns away then that makes him a "loser." If he believes what he has been taught from birth by every woman in his life then that just makes him an unplugged Beta, not a "loser."

We teach men here that without a purpose in life, without a goal and direction, a man has no meaning.

Definitely it is the goal and the journey, not the destination that is important.

Your purpose as a man is to win this game.

Only after you win and are at the top does this 'kindness' and cooperation stuff work. They even try to frame self-actualization as "cooperative" but first you have to win. The trick is knowing the opponent is not anybody else. The opponent is yourself.

The men who win the Game of Life all have one thing in common. They realize they're playing a game, and they tackle this game seriously and with every fibre of their being.

Poetry in prose. Mindfulness is absolutely the key. You are playing a game and you can play to win or you can lose. Those are your only choices.

As for the rest, I am not sure if I agree completely. Why can't the goal be "success" AND happiness AND fulfillment? The most successful guys make it big and are satisfied and happy with their success.

You paint the image of the man driven by his fear of death but I prefer the vision of a man motivated by pursuing his passion.

I'm intrigued by this, more information about it and reading resources?

[–]RedPillCoach 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is a Chapter on Kegan in my textbook for one of the core coaching classes: Becoming a Professional Life Coach. However that is not the best source.

Kegan wrote several books and probably the best is The Evolving Self but I don't think those are the best source for Kegan because he changed his theory seemingly with each new book he wrote. I think it is better to get a more general psychology text on development which has all of them together- Kegan, Piaget, Maslow, Jung etc. I feel his theory does not stand alone very well and works better when you compare it to other developmental theories.

[–]Paul_Stern 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great post. The question of meaning, winning or being happy, is a interesting one. Since you are using Nietzsche's übermensch concept, you are familiar with his idea of the will to power. Reading about that was what woke me up, and got me on the path to being a man. The ability to do what you want instead of what you are told is amazing. I have achieved so much in a short period of time because I put my will above rules, conventions, and others. But many days I wake up and feel like I just want to sit quietly reading and gaming while the world continues to descend into chaos. Those moments of "escapism", are the best things I remember from my whole life. Win or lose, you still die. The ending is the same. Entropy is leading us to the heat death of the universe with every action we take.

[–]beyondgenetix 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Okay I was enjoying the post until you say don’t die from a drug overdose, then say you want to fuck the prettiest girl or do the hardest drugs. Then you say you were a worse beta than everyone but the next breath you’ve always tackled life at 100% because your father. How did you tackle life at 100% as a beta bitch. Are you advocating drug usage or against it. Inconsistencies like that are killing a well written post.

Oh looky here, we got a fuck'n smarty pants. FYI this entire post has a lot of alignment to manufacturing processes and business managerial theory.

This entire post is treating your body as a factory, with inputs as pussy and output as happiness. But your factory floor is all about making sure the factory keeps running, otherwise your inputs dry up and your outputs change to waste (unhappiness).

Guys at MGTOW pretend if they stop getting inputs they can still churn out happiness, and you can run your factory off reserves. Incels obviously just pump out waste. Chad can run a shit floor and still be alright. But it doesn't hurt anyone to improve their floor essentially.

There's a hint of "just in time" (JIT) inventory too. Which is more or less you're all about minimizing downtime and slotting things in when there's time. High efficiency, which is high ROI (rate of return).

All educational disciplines share a ton of overlap and rebrand concepts with each tweaked a little.

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

The business itself can be considers a superorganism; it is made of constituent organs comprised of tissues and cells, and competes with other superorganisms for resources and survival. As such it operates like a living thing, with its own conciousness, and has to abide by the rules of nature and competition.

[–]RedPillCoach 2 points3 points  (0 children)

business itself can be considers a superorganism

So can society. If you view it like that then "feminism is cancer" is not just a phrase. It has literal meaning. An abnormal growth that doesn't directly kill but grows out of control and crowds out the healthy tissue.

Here's your dopamine you autistic faggot.

Good post though. This post will be quite helpful to a lot of guys out there. Your father was obviously a great role model, and a good man.

I'm not so sure about your idea about procreation as winning. Sure, it's fulfilling a biological imperative, but sex is low on Maslow's pyramid for a reason. You don't have to be self-actualized to have children. In fact, having children is quite often detrimental to one's self-actualization; especially if one wasn't ready to have children.

You making those point's about ancestors reads a bit trite, but I can't fault you for it.

Overall great read, but don't fall into the trap that you know everything. Things will soon open wider and deeper for you and you'll be confronted with a multitude more nuance in life.

You have a great foundation though, power to you.

You don't have to be self-actualized to have children. In fact, having children is quite often detrimental to one's self-actualization; especially if one wasn't ready to have children.

This is understandably a controversial and divided topic here, and for good reason. Although good genes are sought by women, often, they select pragmatically. Nurturing is a highly held trait for LTR selection, even though such a thing is negatively correlated to arousal.

So inherent in the image of family, and in fact, innate to it, is provisioning, which we all know is problematic.

Yet, we're wired for it. You can't honestly disregard the literal biological imperative.

Self awareness allows you to rationalize it away, what we may call hamstering, but I do believe at least siring children is a part of self actualization.

In your 20s and 30s, maybe it's possible to escape this reality of life, but I think by your 40s that's going to start to sting.

Now I understand lots of men never feel this burn, and I am by no means trying to put that heat on you.

But I think of this in the same way as schooling. Lot's of people posit "I can chart my own path, I don't need an education."

Well... it's a lot more complex of an answer than that. And rarely does anyone get a degree which is competitive and regret it. It sometimes isn't until years later they look back and realize what a great thing they did in their life and what a benefit it provided them.

Will children provide that benefit directly? No. It's passive in the same way. And you learn that you have little control over the nuclear family, which is Briffault's law.

But regardless, to make sure you're within the some 80% of people who have kids I think is a part of a man's self actualization whether he wants to believe it or not.

And again, some people do well without traditional schooling and they're better off for it. But I would caution most people against not being educated.

There is with TRP a strong drive to be outside of the system, yet you realize that such competition within the system is unavoidable.

TRP is just within a woman's STR paradigm. Plenty of Chad's "get left" for provisioning males, they have children with them, maybe they come back to him, maybe they cheat etc.

The point being, is that he still "loses" in some ways even if he wins the war.

Basically, competition is inevitable, and acceptance of human paradigms are inevitable unless they are a false ideal.

I have children and I don't think siring them is a false ideal. Believing your wife will share in your vision of family which tatomounts to a degree of disregarding the burden of performance is a false ideal.

Which is why when I push my framework out, accepting your children into your heart and letting them go is an important part of the process. To share in that part of life, itself.

I do not believe an honest man can escape that. There is nothing more raw than creating life. Everything builds up to that point.

And then women find a way to burn that all down. So the apprehension is certainly understandable.

I feel like attempting to spend the many minutes to read this is Dead Time lol. Not that there isn't great advice but you should try being more succinct it will reach a wider audience.

Sometimes communication is a message. Sometimes communication is a journey. Not all of it should be the former.

OP tries to share something meaningful but no , someone has to shit on him because hey,why spend your time learning about things to improve yourself when you can just bitch about this post being long. We are not here to share some two line quotes we heard somewhere ,but actual experience and what we learnt from it.If you can't read even this much,how the fuck do you plan on reading any book to improve yourself. We can't have people here who don't read and just watch stupid videos on YouTube. People complaining about this post being too long deserve all the shit going on in their life.

[–]SpaderAce 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the laugh. Long posts like this have the best message, it's hard to internalize a one liner. And besides, who doesn't have a few minutes here and there to read this at least in sections? When the message is good, like this one, it's like reading a good chapter in a good book. Worth it.

[–]Schhwing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Most of the time I would agree. But OP entertained, emoted and taught with this post. High quality.

[–]Allcyon 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Well, it's better than what you were doing before. A little American Psycho, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

I wouldn't tell you to change any part, not my place, except for one: Stop making your bed. By all means, settle your addiction to the discipline of it all. But because you are actually using your body correctly, your biome is changing, your releasing a lot more shit through your skin while you sleep, and tucking your sheets and blankets in in the morning is trapping that shit in your bed.

Change this. It's a macro move. You're saving your mattress, your skin, your lungs, etc.

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

What's the alternative, changing the sheets every day, or airing out the sheets?

[–]Allcyon 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Ideally, you want to "hang up" your blankets every morning. But this is impractical, and looks like shit.

Folding them down to rest at the foot of the bed is generally considered to be a reasonable compromise, as your feet are down there anyway, and it'll only ever be so "clean" from the get go.

What you want is the bed to be exposed to as much fresh air and sunlight as possible. This will discourage bacteria growth, and make everything smell a lot nicer.

Also, change out your sheets at least every three days. Especially if you're eating right, exercising, and bedding a girl every other day. Strip the sheets, give it a quick spray of disinfectant and scent (Febreeze to start. Later you can get a signature scent you like, something light that's not a cologne) and let it air out for the day.

One last thing, go pick up some Pothos plants from Home Depot. (Google it) They're cheap, relatively neutral looking, girls like that you've kept something alive, and best of all, they suck up and recycle ambient air like nothing else. If you were (or still are) smoking indoors, these will strip the smell away.

Thanks for your time!

I would suggest reading during the commute. Especially at rush hour

You should start a blog and/or write a book. This is good material and definitely saved for later viewing.

I have to admit dude I was laughing by the end of the loser part haha. I consider my past self a loser as well, and devote every minute of my day to self-betterment now. I just recently instituted a new bedtime regimen where it is mandatory stop studying stocks/doing school for new certificate to further my career at 9 PM and read until lights out at 9:30 PM to hopefully be sleeping by 10 PM to be up for 5:50 AM for the gym next morning before work. I was shocked at how fast I was falling asleep as opposed to the nights of watching TV and movies until late into the night, feeling tired all the next day.

How old are you? Fuck life advice from college students who don't have a real job or real life responsibilities other than not masturbating all day

[–]Heathcliff-- 1 points1 points [recovered]

  1. I study stem. I have two jobs in positions of responsibility and make serious buck.

Shouldn't matter who it's coming from though, doesnt change the truth of the argument. But I understand the concern.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The thing I appreciate most about this post is your interpretation of dead time. This has been a concept I've struggled with for years, often feeling like I'm wasting time when doing activities that aren't directly pushing me towards bettering myself or improving in any way. It's refreshing how you put things into perspective without promoting laziness and by likening these moments to a day of rest.

Thank you for this insight!

[–]AlexCarlin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think this post helped motivate me to stop smoking weed. Do you guys have any tips?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

May i ask where in the Uk do you study?

[–]KarmaComber 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Incredible. A great read. Fantastic writing and exceptional content. Enough bigging up your ego though this was inspirational and above all, useful. Thanks.

[–]gsxr9001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Great post. Ill be slowly but surely implementing some of this into my routine. Also, if you're going for hypertrophy maybe check out the Arnold Mass program. I put on the most size with this over anything else I've tried. Training heavy is important but you can add more size adding some higher rep range exercises and switching it up every week. However, it's pretty time consuming if you do the plan as written. Anyways, just trying too add some value before I ask this question: what do you do during the rest sessions of your pomodoros?
