For those of you who have already subscribed, don’t worry…
Tomorrow at midnight, Central Standard Time,
you will receive a short blog update…
And at the bottom…
In the footer…
There will be an icon…
That looks like THIS!
WARNING! Reading this article will probably offend you.
If you are in the 90th percentile of people that like security, like being told what to do, don’t take risks, and won’t stop living your life in fear of failure, I’m afraid to tell you…
You are not going to succeed.
There, I got it out of the way.
I’ve talked before about guys who aren’t good at anything, who have never mastered anything, and how they think it will be different when they get into mastering success with women, or training in the gym, or making money online.
It takes TIME.
It takes EFFORT.
It takes a SERIOUS amount of motivation.
So you’ve had the ground breaking epiphany that you aren’t just dealt the cards you were dealt in the success with women’s category.
You’ve realized that getting the ultimate rockstar lifestyle of feminine abundance is a matter of SKILL and not genetics or random happenstance.
You decide to go out arduously working on the skillset, spending time reading various forums and blogs, (*wink*) and take the knowledge out in the field and slowly work towards the lifestyle that all your friends envy.
Getting mad bitches!
Haha, melodramatics aside, a problem that I see many guys run into on their quest towards abundance is that they don’t have a well defined gameplan for their short or long term goals.
They haphazardly head out to the club, ambulating between trying to get better, and trying to get laid.
But what most guys don’t realize is that there is a vast difference between working on your social skills, and just going out to get some ass.
A few acknowledgments before we get into todays post:
1. If any of you were on the site from about 4AM-10AM, SORRY!!!
My newb FTP skills brought the blog to a halting stop, only a white screen of doom being visible for the better part of 6 hours.
This made me extremely sad because…
2. Google Analytics tracked over 2000 visits yesterday!
I knew it was going to be a big day, and I wanted to push hard to get some extra traffic.
Wednesdays aren’t even ordinarily the busiest of the week, but I pushed out a couple articles in an effort to really pump up the site.
Last month www.bradbranson.com grew by over 200% in visits and pageviews. My short term goal is to break the 100,000 mark in the Alexa ranking, and thanks for being a part of the journey!
The RSDNation 2.0 launch was expected to happen around Christmas 2009.
I was training to become an RSD instructor, and the powers that be, (Tyler and Papa) demanded that each instructor create 8 articles to be released on the front page of rsdnation.com, which would have tri-weekly featured posts alternating between each instructor.
Having only started my training a month prior to the launch date, I had no experience teaching and therefore had no clue what to write about. I was also working hard to try and create 10 hours of bootcamp seminar material for the weekend program, and the result was a lot of overlap between my early articles and my weekend seminar.
Have you ever thought of traveling the world?
Riding motorcycles through South America, trekking through South East Asia, or backpacking Europe, but the dream ends due to worries that you can’t afford it, or that every other activity in your life will fall to the wayside?
Well, over the past 3 years, I have been on the road a minimum of 300 days each year, and have picked up many travel tips and tricks along the way.
At first, I wasn’t very balanced. I’d go out, party and meet girls, but every other aspect of my life was compromised by this lifestyle.
I’ve slowly developed a system of how to maximize your travel experience, and have the ULTIMATE lifestyle while on the road.
Getting shit done, eating healthy, and traveling economically, what follows are some of my best tips for developing the nomadic lifestyle and touring the world.
Sounds good doesn’t it?
I’m out in Scottsdale, AZ running a bootcamp with Tyler this weekend.
I’ve been out 2 nights, and they’ve gone very differently.
The first night I was out with 2 buddies, no bootcamp, and we decided to hit it hard.
Scottsdale girls are so fun.
Dressed to the 9s, high heel shoes, perfectly coifed hair, and tight ass mini skirts…
The hotness of the girls doesn’t really affect me any more, I know I have to bring my A game, but I also have dealt with uber hotties in so many environments now, I also know that it’s no different than any other city, and if I try to calibrate differently, I’m already shooting myself in the foot.
I’ve been seriously jazzed the last few weeks.
Because I’m learning html.
Ok, that sounds a bit weird.
Let’s take a respite from the girl talk for a moment and talk about some other aspects that compose lifestyle development.
What is Lifestyle Development?
It’s personal development on steriods.
Personal development pertains to the mind.
Lifestyle development incorporates every aspect of your life, from going up and talking to that girl across the room, training hard in the gym, eating healthy, honing your entrepreneurial nature, traveling the world, and being a man of stories.
The linchpin of my teaching methodology is Attraction = Value.
My goal on program is to help the client understand this on a very deep level, and then learn easy ways to convey as much value as possible.
One of my most popular articles on RSDNation back in the day was the cheat codes article because it highlighted 3 of the most high leverage techniques for conveying value and building attraction quickly.
I also off-handedly mentioned that there were probably 30 different ways to convey high value, which resulted in me receiving dozens of emails asking what the other techniques were, even with people offering me financial remuneration.
Here they are…
I woke up this morning around 7AM, my body still seems to be trying to figure out what continent I’m on…
I was checking for any new comments on the blog, I moderate every one, and realized I just hit the 1000 comment mark!
It took just 5 months to get there, and I think a big part of why I reached this threshold so quickly is how active and conversational people generally are when it comes to discussing the topic of dating, self development, and even health topics at times.
So after 24 hours of flight time, I’m back in Manhattan to party with Saad tonight before running bootcamp tomorrow in Boston.
I should probably be sleeping now, but Saad hasn’t woken up yet, so I’m just chillin at Whole Foods with some prosciutto, scrambled eggs with cheese, kombucha, and mixed berries. Mmmm….
And it seems I do my best work from a semi lucid state.
I check facebook, and get a message:
Hey baby. Long time, no see. Why haven’t i heard from you? I really miss you Brad. Lots of love, your sara!
What the fuck.
So I haven’t talked to this girl since I left Sweden 3 months ago, and we only had one night together, ending in the hostel bathroom. Heh.
My friends and I call these forms of communication zombie messages/texts.
The girl comes back from the dead, looking for love in the night.
So I’m about to jump on a flight through Johannesburg, back into the US to Boston for another bootcamp this weekend.
I’ll be gone for a good 24 hours in transit, so I figured while I’m gone you can still enjoy my presence through another video in the Conversations series.
This one hints at things like frame control, confidence, unreactivity, congruence, and dictating reality…
All serious RSD buzz words, hah!
If you were to look back at your former self, let’s say 3-4 years ago, how much have you changed?
Hopefully, each year of your life is better than the last.
For me, my perception of reality, the level of abundance I have with women, my finances, knowledge, adventures, WISDOM, and random life skills are DRASTICALLY different and evolved compared to a few years ago.
Let me ask you this though…
Who are your friends?
Are your friends the same as 3-4 years ago?
And more importantly…
Have they made the journey as well?
This is the last round of the interview, I only had a little snippet left, and thought it was worth adding…
I should be able to get the footage from the other days as well.
Do you guys even like these?!
About to get some last minutes sleep here in NYC before jumping on a plane to Africa, thought I’d bring up a little insight that I realized on bootcamp this weekend.
I’ve been in contact with some of the other “pickup” companies lately, and it sounds like this blog is making it’s way through the community, with a lot of other companies figureheads giving me props on the blog.
I figured, since a big part of my diurnal thoughts revolve around being a better teacher, learning to teach better, and applying that EVERY weekend, (soon to be on 4 continents, 35 countries, and over 200 students over the last 2 and a half years…) I thought I would share some insights into my teaching thought process.
