Crabs in a bucket.
We preach a lot on TRP about being an "alpha male" but if you have been here long enough, you know that the vast majority of subscribers here as well as people in real life are not conductive to an individual rising from the ashes to become an alpha male. No one will openly say it but we should all remember a simple rule of life, don't pay attention to what people say, pay attention to what they do.
I am not where I want to be in life right now but I feel like I have come a long way as someone raised in poverty. As someone raised in poverty though, I have almost been forced to avoid people from my past and it is tough for me to have an optimistic view of the world. It's not just the real world but also a lot of what I read on TRP that has sort of left me jaded. We say we want each other to do well but our actions say otherwise.
Fitness, health, looks, and aesthetics.
I give big props to TRP here, we all admit they matter and help each other out in that regard but society is a far cry. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" being an example and just how desperately everyone tries to talk you out of things like lifting because bodybuilding is for "douchebags". We are slowly getting better about this as a society from what I see, especially since men are told to be fit and given less of a leeway to be overweight and hideous.
Still, you see a lot of it going on to where people will try to push you away from getting the most out of your aesthetics and looks. Be prepared to have others call you vain and shallow just because you want to look good.
Social class and money.
Money is evil.
Money is wicked.
Money is root of all evil.
Being rich is immoral because all rich people are sociopaths. Wealth doesn't matter and people in poor societies are "happier" than some rich guy. You should be guilty for wanting to be rich and wanting a better life, it's the wrong thing to do. Let me tell you about my friend who is homeless but still fucks hot girls, screw having a six figure salary!
How about social class? Stop judging people based on their looks, shallow people do that! Treat everyone fairly! Treat that loser going no where in life just as fairly as that guy who can help you get places in life!
Sexual strategy and hot girls.
"Pussy is pussy"
"It's all pink on the inside"
All 9s and 10s are terrible in bed.
All hot girls are shallow.
All hot girls have personality issues.
All hot girls are stupid.
All hot girls have problems.
All hot girls are evil and two faced.
Sexual strategy is dishonest.
There is more to life than sex!
See my point? They're indirectly saying, settle for that 6 and don't go after that 10. They will even lie and say "game that 6 and ignore that 10 who will automatically fall for you because duh, game!". Hot girls are nasty and hot girls are evil. Only "evil douchebags" get hot girls and most hot girls "aren't worth the effort" just like being rich, aesthetic, and charismatic isn't worth the effort.
That hot blonde is a bitch with major issues, I prefer some woman from a third world country who will cook for me, I am going to Thailand!
They don't want you to get hot girls or know how to get them.
Stick with your own kind!
Stick with women of your own skin tone and don't game women of different races!
Stay away from white women you ethnic scum!
What's wrong with girls of your own race?
Hey ethnic guys, stop obsessing with white women!
Make life easier for yourself, go for women of your own race!
My point here being, given that we have a diverse group on TRP, this is a polarizing subject. To see the ethnic guy get hot blondes is success in eyes of TRP, it something a lot don't want to see whether it is white nationalists or self-defeatist ethnic guys that don't want to see their fellow ethnic men get the kinds of women they know they cannot get.
Why DJ on the weekends? It's too try hard! Stay in and read a book, it's so much more comfortable!
Why approach hot girls? It's creepy!
Why put so much into an online dating profile? The game is rigged!
Why move to a fun and interesting city? Location doesn't matter.
Get the trend here? Live the comfortable shitty life of sitting on your couch all day or do pointless shit like reading a dumb fucking book instead of living life. Now watch as the neckbeards come in and call me a loser for wanting to build an interesting lifestyle instead of reading another boring post on psychology.
You're really on your own.
You have some bits and pieces of info to follow out there to help yourself, expect to hear everyone talk you out of it. That is the test of frame and the test of a strong will. Pursuit of greatness is a test of frame, how do you handle the pressure of the world trying to talk you out of it.
