Men ask me how they can be better looking. While skincare and fitness matter, there is truth to attractiveness coming from the inside out.
If you adopt a positive outlook on life, you will appear more attractive to others.
Likewise, if you let hatred consume your soul, you will die from the inside out. Your inner ugliness and negativity will be revealed for the world to see.
Your mindset will influence your physical attractiveness more than any other non-genetic factor.
Even if you are not traditionally good looking, a positive outlook on live gives you a glow and power. Your fullness and abundance begin in your soul and overflows out past your skin.
Your anger and hostility will also flow outwards.
You can see mindset in action based on the staggering decline of a former NFL player, Christopher Kluwe.
Chris Kluwe, who I had never heard of until he tried to harass me online, became interested in me sometime around October, 2014.
Kluwe concluded it’d be wise to start a war with a man who writes 5,000 words a day and practices Gorilla Mindset principles. This was a disastrous mistake on Kluwe’s part. The more Kluwe threw at me, the more I laughed. He became a broken, embittered little man.
Kluwe’s obsession included rape fantasies involving me, and he posted an ask-me-anything (AMA) thread on Reddit called “I am Mike Cernovich’s Raging Bile Erection.”
(Kluwe tried advancing his personal brand by attacking mine.)
Rather than focus on improving himself, Mr. Kluwe went on a campaign to silence me. He even threatened to sue me.
(On the right, you see Chris Kluwe when he was succeeding; on left, his decline after a mindset of negativity and hatred.)
While some have wondered if Chris Kluwe is on drugs or perhaps has contracted HIV, I know the truth.
Incredible, harrowing decline in charisma and looks. Only ever seen this in drug addicts, sincerely. @PlayDangerously

Mr. Kluwe’s staggering decline in health and physical appearance is due to his hateful mindset.
Chris Kluwe believes men, especially white men, are evil. This self-hatred has manifested itself in his AIDS-like deterioration.
If you hate yourself, you will appear ugly to the world. Hating yourself for immutable traits (race, gender, height, shape of face, etc.) is especially demoralizing, as you cannot change those traits.
Likewise, if you have confidence and self-possession, you will be more likable and attractive.
Although Mr. Kluwe reads Danger & Play, he has not begun applying the principles written here.
I would advise Mr. Kluwe to start juicing, as juicing does improve skin quality and overall health. More importantly, Mr. Kluwe needs to adopt a more positive mindset.
Reading about mindset means nothing. Applying the Gorilla Mindset principles mean everything.
Although the final draft of Gorilla Mindset won’t be done until next week, there are some general mindset principles we can apply to our lives.
Do not hate anyone.
While I would not go as far as Jesus, who said to love everyone: I do not hate Chris Kluwe or anyone else I’ve criticized or who has criticized me. I don’t even hate the woman who falsely accused me of crimes.
“Hating a person is,” as the Buddha said, “like taking poison and expecting the other person to die.”
Recognize we are all flawed and hypocritical. We all want to become better versions of ourselves.
We will slip and stumble. That does not make us bad people, it makes us flawed people – which is to say, human.
Become abundant. You are enough, just as you are.
Do not hate yourself for being a man, whether that’s a gay man, black man, straight man, or white man. Hell, if you decide you’re a man inside a woman’s body, don’t hate yourself for that, either.
You do you, whoever that “you” is.
If you cannot begin to adopt a mindset of love for yourself, how can you expect others to love you?
Some ask me if I ever sleep. Yes, I rest often and when I rest I make it count. My rest is not passively watching television, but rather includes massages, leisurely walks, long motor rides down the coast of Vietnam, and meditation.
Turn off the computer and internet stuff. Go listen to the waves crash in on the beach. Lie down, becoming one with the sea. Watch the sea gulls fly overhead.
Being around “big spaces” remind us we are connected to everyone and everything. Mountains, oceans, and even a small waterfall in your home reminds us how small we are.
(We are one.)
Become a visionary rather than a reactionary.
Right now Kluwe is reacting to whatever annoys him at the present moment. This has caused him to be frenzied.
You can tell Chris is constantly rubbing his hair, as he can’t sit still.
He instead needs to sit down to decide what his vision for his life is.
When you have a vision for your life, for who you are and what you want the world to look like, you become calm even in the face of great storms.
You can’t change the world until you change your mindset.
How many of you were worried about me when the mainstream media began its attack on me? I received many emails and messages of support, which I appreciated.
I never had any fear of caving in and always knew the attacks (which admitted stressed me considerably) would make me stronger.
Even under a full-frontal media blitz, I wrote 5,000 words every day, created a podcast with more ratings than world-famous James Altucher’s podcast, and raised a lot of hell. This is all due to Gorilla Mindset.
Even if they killed me, my message would continue on due to my writing and because so many of you have adopted these mindset principles.
If you want to change the world, change your mindset.
Start right this second.
Changing your mindset is as simply as changing what you think right now, in this present moment.
I believe in you, but that is not enough.
Do you believe in yourself?
Then start acting like it, which means you must take immediate action to improve one area of your life.
This can be a large step or small, but it’s a step you must take now.
Chris Kluwe has issued a formal response to this article.
A regular Danger & Play reader, Chris Kluwe read my article and wishes to respond. He has posted this shirtless picture of himself and decided to cyber-squat on my domain name.
Chris Kluwe is also a domain cyber-squatter.
Does Kluwe’s response refute this article’s point, or reinforce them more powerfully than I ever could?
