oil fields

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.

How to Develop the Game of an Alpha Male

Alpha Male Game

"Game" to me has never been about parlor tricks or clever openings. Game is about building yourself up as a man and creating an amazing lifestyle. To build your game, you have to build yourself up as a man. Become the man to see. Develop charisma. Become a hard hitter. Think of game like an investment strategy.

"Anyone who has wrested knows that it's the hardest thing in the world to do. Anyone who says something else is the hardest thing has never wrestled. That's what I have found. When I think of the frontiers of astrophysics...I don't do astrophysics because it's easy. I do it because it's hard.

47 Life Tips from an Afghanistan Vet and Airborne Infantry Soldier


When I asked newsletter subscribers and Danger & Play readers what advice they would offer young men, I expected to get a few flip replies. I was laughably wrong.

1. Be kind to your black brothers. Enough with the racist crap. I get that there's a World Star Hip Hop thug culture; so do my black readers, and they hate that stuff, too. Danger & Play has a greater percentage of black readers than any other blog in this area and it's commonly assumed I'm black. Calling me black is not an insult and only shows you're a scared little white … [Read more...]

Seek Small Victories (Because Winning is a Habit)


After a day of work that stretched into night, something came up that ruined everything. All of the hard work was for nothing. I turned my office light off and walked outside into the darkness. I hadn't packed food for the day and my blood sugar was low. I grabbed a protein bar and told myself that going to the gym was pointless. Somehow I made it. I rolled into the … [Read more...]
