We recently heard from a reader who overcome a paralyzing stuttering problem. Today we hear from a young man who has gone from average to alpha in every area of his life. (Do you have a success story to share? If so, I want to hear from you.)
“How I went from the bottom 10% to the top 10% in every aspect of my life.”
Two years ago I was a nobody. I was literally coming home from school and just playing World of Warcraft till I went to bed. When I didn’t have to school I used to play for 12 hours a day. Then I stumbled upon my first PUA site and my whole life changed around. I finally lost my virginity at 18 y/o having read hundreds of articles. Now I want to give the community something back and show you how I improved my life in every aspect of it. Women, Style, Financial, Lifting being the main ones.
I wasted thousands of hours in the beginning reading game forums and blogs looking for a secret phrase or something like that. I was a virgin until 18 because I always followed the belief of being a nice guy and treating women like they were better than men. I can see myself in a lot of what Elliot Rodger described.
I also have Epilepsy (not to bad, you can’t tell and every women I’ve slept with I’ve told about it) which meant that drinking was completely out of the question. My first experience with game was going my local Pickup Lair. That was pretty much just a waste of time. There was 1 guy who approached women and everyone else including me at that time just walked around talking to each other.
I lived in a village of What I did Wrong: I read way to much unneeded blog articles. Stick to all the already known stuff like rooshv, Good Looking Loser, etc. Find your niche. Don’t go out doing night game if you can’t stand being in night clubs.
The women I’m with now enjoy sex, they like being choked (one of the best articles Mike has written, and it’s completely true). If you lead them into that frame they will follow.
I was that guy wearing “funny” shirts until I was about 17. Then I found out about /r/malefashionadvice on reddit and saw that there were actually ways to dress good as a male. Mike has got some great articles on this blog, but in my opinion it boils down to fitting clothes and matching colors. I’m of the opinion that you need to find your own style, I personally like chinos and brogue shoes. But if all the people in your group wear sneakers and jeans that would just look weird. It will take a while before you feel confident in your new clothes, but it will definitely be worth it and women definitely notice it and tell you about it.
I’m making close to 6 figures a year at 19. I just finished high school and I have no special skills. How? Thankfully I found this thread on the RooshV forum and took the advice. I moved from Europe to Canada to work in the Canadian Oilsands. The american equivalent are the Bakken Oilfields. We have an unemployment rate of about 3%. If you have trouble finding a job with your liberal arts degree come up here and in less than a month you will find a high paying job. It is hard work, but if you don’t spend your money on trucks like 90% of the guys working here do you’ll be able to retire in 10 years. Or work 6 months a year and travel the rest of the year. You’ll definitely have more freedom than 95% of other Americans.
Lifting & Diet
2 years ago I was 6’2 120lbs. I always held onto the believe that I was a “hardgainer.” The real reason I was that skinny is that I ate about 1500 calories at most a day. I stumbled upon the program GOMAD and started drinking 2l of milk a day. Within a year I was up 40lbs. Currently I’m up to 180lbs. I am a big fan of ICF5x5 for beginners.
It is basically how all bodybuilders pre steroid era trained. (Steve Reeves, Reg Park, Arnold’s trainer) I know Mike likes HIT and I agree that it’s great but I think people should have a solid base first, it certainly helped me. If you follow the program after a year you should be able to bench 225, squat 315, deadliest 415 easily. I broke my knee 2 years ago, lost pretty much all my muscle in my left leg and I’m getting close to those numbers after having only trained legs for 6 months.
