Three years ago, I was overweight, working a dead end job as a bank teller after my university undergraduate degree, I was in love with a girl who just went through a bad breakup and I wanted to play ‘Captain Save a Hoe’. Thankfully, she rejected me.

I’m thankful.

Thankful for the shitty situations I was going through in my life.

I was depressed, hopeless, and hated myself.

I met a friend of mine who introduced me to this sub. From there I went through the regular stages every blue pill man goes through when they make this discovery. I read posts, oh so many posts, then books, videos, whatever I could get my hands on.

Over the last three years I...

Got back in shape, went back to university to finish a second degree, got accepted to my dream professional school program which sets me up indefinitely financially - this wasn’t easy as I had dumpster shit set on fire grades from my 1st degree. Everyone from my friends, relatives and parents told me to stop, quit and start earning money. I said fuck you and kept working on me.

I spinned plates, rejected girls I would never dream of rejecting 3 years ago. This isn’t necessarily an important part of my journey but it’s like the cherry on top of the sundae.

I stopped giving a fuck. I cut out toxic people in my life, stopped (most) toxic habits that were dragging me down. I built discipline, learned resilience, learned that defeat and rejection literally made me more hungry, and I learned that fear and risk are huge motivators.

More importantly I came to a point where I’m finally happy and in love with myself and what I’ve become. I walk around feeling like I can do anything and I can’t describe what that feels like. It’s euphoric.

I won’t sugar coat it for you: it was fucking hard, gruelling and sometimes felt demotivating. But I grinded every single fucking day. I didn’t stop and I haven’t yet.

This community has truly changed my life, and I thank you for that.

We provided the guides.

You provided the sweat.

Good job on your journey so far. There's more to come, and it gets even better with sustained effort.

[–]1SexdictatorLucifer 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Theres always a new plane you cant comprehend yet. The feeling of ascending to it always catches me off guard. For some reason, its usually when I feel I'm trying the least?

[–]Hviterev 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It might feels like you're trying the least because you have integrated the last lessons and you're free to take a new one?

[–]KungfuCatcus 156 points157 points  (5 children)

Damn you really put the succ in success! Way to go, brother! 6 months in myself and addicted to the grind.

[–]Gambattekure 55 points56 points  (4 children)

I'm laughing too hard at this succ joke.

[–]eddimioa 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Well you gotta embrace the succ

[–]Hviterev 7 points8 points  (0 children)

embrace the succ

go with the blow

inspire to aspire

move your diaphragm to not be sham

Alright I'm done.

[–]bestsparkyalive 126 points127 points  (4 children)

This is why we’re quarantined. We’re evil.

[–]giantsrocker 59 points60 points  (0 children)

I'm totally fine with having this gem all to our cool selves.

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillcad 24 points25 points  (0 children)

The bluepill says cutting out toxic people, telling off crabs in bucket losers, and rejecting women is evil.

WHY?

Because a man who puts his mission first cant be easily exploited

[–]grandmasbroach 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Has there been any updates to the quarantine? Or, are they just ignoring us now?

[–]bestsparkyalive 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It will never be brought out of quarantine

[–]1bruiser18 30 points31 points  (1 child)

When you hate yourself and your situation so much that the only way you can go is up, that’s when you become addicted to the grind. That’s when you succeed.

Congratulations on your success so far.

[–]1INNASKILLZ2K18 9 points10 points  (0 children)

When the fear of staying the same, becomes greater than the fear of change. Nice.

[–]cursedflame 28 points29 points  (0 children)

You go bro, you go. Love this kind of posts.

[–]shea_the_great 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I've come to realize Red Pill Theory really boils down to a mentality for men to work towards becoming the best versions of themselves.

It is therefore not surprising that I have read this post today.

Good for you buddy.

[–]FaustoLG 34 points35 points  (1 child)

"I won’t sugar coat it for you"... Only females want it that way...

If life is like chile, well it's a spicy dish, so... No Problem!

[–]Wolveryn 47 points48 points  (0 children)

That's really what TRP is all about. Thanks for sharing, everytime I read of a success story it boosts me.

Keep focussing on that grind. Don't let complacency find its way back in.

[–]alphabachelor 14 points15 points  (0 children)

And this is why the SJWs and feminists hate us. We liberate men, turning them into masters of their destiny. Only answering to themselves.

Never stop learning, lifting and growing. Godspeed.

[–]1Obediah_Stane 12 points13 points  (0 children)

You've completed the first and hardest step, getting out if the blue pill blackhole that most people are still stuck in and will never escape. Next step is refinement. Refining yourself as a man and your newly discovered skills and traits.

[–]ugluk1 25 points26 points  (4 children)

That hoe, who rejected you, will now want to come back.

[–]novalentineforyou 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Even better: OP will stop caring about girls who rejected him.

[–]ugluk1 17 points18 points  (0 children)

He's in love with himself now. Irresistible.

[–]ZeppKfw 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yeah and she will try to be the "Good Innocent Girl" to OP.

Also, congrats OP! You earned it.

[–]frooschnate 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You’ll get out of the anger phase soon

[–]L0nerizm 9 points10 points  (1 child)

What did you study for grad school man? Good job btw

[–]bigballer29 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Second this, and big ups my guy

[–]Bulkyboiii 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Inspirational transformation! What are the most helpful things you've read or watched on your journey?

[–]TheBadGoy 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That will be 2000 dollars my friend, we accept credit cards :)

[–]L3onard3 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think you meant you spun plates. But as we all know, there’s always room for improvement.

[–]Soon_As_I_Nut 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Your insatiable drive will never be quenched now. It is both a blessing and a curse.

[–]SoulRedemption 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Congrats on your long journey and the achievements!

Care to elaborate a bit more on the toxic habits and how you cut them out?

[–]ThiccBoisClub[S] 19 points20 points  (3 children)

Cut out video games, to the point where I comfortably reintroduced it as a 'reward'

Cut out pornography indefinitely

I don't practice NoFap, but I reserve when and how long I will go until I masturbate (for discipline and resisting the urge) - this is also shown to show an acute increase in Testostrone if done in small breaks (every 7-9 days).

I became addicted to the gym, and studied nutrition and physiology indepth - this gave me the tools, background knowledge (science), and blueprint on how to start, maintain, and successfully continue into body recompisition. I was never unfit, but I was fat and lifting tons of weight. I just became smarter at what I did.

Time-FUCKING-Management - there's not much to say about this, I got my shit together and organized my life through planners. Do this enough time and the habit just becomes a part of your autonomous everyday life.

Alcohol - This one is an up and down for me. I drank ALOT in school. It was alot of social opportunities for me to grow, but it came to a point where I was just tired of waking up hungover 2-3x a week. I was worried about my liver. I started drinking less. Every now and then I'll still go out and enjoy myself, I'm by no means cutting it out cold turkey. But it's still something I struggle with to completely cut out of my life.

[–]SoulRedemption 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thank you for the extensive elaboration.

Great work!

[–]LSDparade 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Whats your experience with psychedelics? They kick-boosted my self improvement journey.

[–]deterlaettis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They rewrite paths in the brain and give you a "afterglow" that lasts months. Only 1-2 a year depending on the experience and set and setting ofcourse. It is how you use your afterglow that decides if it's good or bad for you imho. It's almost been a year since I've done MDMA and 1,5 years since I did LSD (which is my favourite by miles, mdma fucked up my dopamine & serotonine because I could not keep it at 5-6 months apart) I digress, psyches are great if it's your thing and you use it correctly, I barely ever drink, instead I smoke Marijuana when I've earned it (preferably) and now I've never felt better tbh. Long way to go but I've finally put my feet out the door. Hahah this went on but I had nothing to do rn as I'm waiting for an appointment ^

[–]Cum_Victor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good work, but the saga continues.

[–]Twistedcaligrapes 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Congrats brother. The journey is not done. Keep grinding- every fucking day...be better. You got this!

[–]look_up_there 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck yeah man. I'm on that journey too and I'm properly loving life for the first time ever. I think it only gets better too

[–]Cryptoguru777 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Now enjoy it and f*ck these ho's to sleep. You earned it.

[–]ZealousFeet 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fuck, who's cutting onions by me? I'm happy for you guy! Gives me to motivation to never give up as well.

Cheers!

[–]memedealer22 0 points1 point  (3 children)

if you could sum up the best things to do(like in life). what would it be?

[–]ThiccBoisClub[S] 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Take the risk. If you’re unhappy, make that decision that will make you less unhappy. And most importantly, you’re the only person that is born into the world by yourself, you also leave this world by yourself, thus make yourself happy at every opportunity you can and don’t rely on others to make you happy.

[–]I_Love_Every_Woman 1 points1 points [recovered]

What if taking that risk has the potential to fuck up my life ?

[–]Frenetic_Zetetic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The art of personal transcendence, brought to you by your own efforts and accurate, actionable information. Congrats my man keep it up.

[–]ShadowInSoul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks for sharing man, now you're motivating us to improve ourselves, guess is a never ending cycle :)

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

Nothing much to say except good for you bro, you earned it.

[–]nyxlucis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We've all been you at some point. Great job buddy.

[–]xavijo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good stuff brah. What degree did you end up going for?

[–]silent_dominant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Last alinea hits the nail on the head man. You're awesome

[–]SeasonedRP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Once you start accomplishing things in any endeavor, it spills over into other areas of your life. It sounds like you are experiencing that. You figure out that yeah, with discipline, I can improve my physique and up my bench press by 50 pounds. That mindset carries over to school, to career, and other aspects of life. The important thing is you develop self confidence and recognize you have worth. Good job and keep moving forward. Don't get complacent.

[–]Zech4riah 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Excellent, now the hard part. Maintain your drive to excel for the rest of your life.

[–]Itscommonsensebro -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

I shaved my beard, trimmed my hair, and started being a nicer person. That’s all it takes if your good looking but shy!

[–]Hviterev 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What are you on about mate?
