Show me someone who hasn’t gone through multiple prolonged periods of rejection/failure before, and I’ll show you someone who is unfulfilled.
The strongest swords can only be forged under immense heat and pressure.
Look around you right now, look at people constantly filtering, hiding, playing it safe, trying to fit in, fearful. Hiding behind their ego, avatar, mask, whatever you want to call it. They live on the surface level, avoiding any meaningful confrontation or challenge. Never growing.
Behind their sock puppet persona, it’s safe there, they can delude themselves...they can construct their own reality, where in their mind they are successful. They can live vicariously through reality TV, social media, gaming or fiction.
They are missing the one true fuel for success. They are resisting the one portal that will introduce a man to his real power, a mirror into his soul.
Do this game long enough, and there’s really one unifying experience that we all must go through to reach our goals, whether it’s the gym, women, career, school... it’s the reason we are drawn here.
Rejection and failure.
Failure is success and success is failure. Ying and yang if you will. You can’t have one without the other.
You see this realisation is what makes a real man, an Alpha. A real man will at any given moment shed his mask get right up in rejections grill, stare straight down into those cold dark eyes, feel the heat, and the searing pain....then he will nonchalantly just smirk and laugh to himself. When you can truly accept rejection and can fully take everything it can throw at you, that’s when the real power shifts.
You now have infinite opportunities. No girl, gym or career can give you a greater feeling then that realisation, it’s like you finally beat yourself and you realise that’s the only person you ever needed to beat all along.
Let me tell you, men who don’t fear rejection in this game, have the power. When a woman can see you don’t give a fuck either way, there’s nothing she can say or do which will even have minuscule impact on your psyche, YOU now have the power in the interaction/ relationship. There is nothing more attractive. It’s nature’s aphrodisiac.
The key thing to realise is this mindset can only be earned, it can’t be faked for any real length of time. There are no shortcuts. The universe made it this way, it’s your challenge as a man.
So get out there and earn your stripes, earn your power, earn your manhood. Be warned the universe won’t give it up easily so prepare to suffer many battle scars, that’s part of the journey... it’s not just normal but required. After a while it will weirdly start to make you feel even more alive.
Why wouldn’t it, it’s the tool the universe has given you to help you find your true best self.
