Key Points

1. You Need to Have Self Control

If you want to be successful, with women and in life, you must develop self-control. The self control to do the things you don’t want to do and to refrain from the things that you know will hinder your progress.

In dating this is exceptionally important. If you do not have self control, you will get bogged down in a sea of information, never taking action, never getting out there and never making progress.

You will allow yourself to become overloaded on information while never actually applying it.

Have some self control, do what you know you need to do and cut out the things you know you shouldn’t do

2. Biology Plays a Big Part in Your Dating Life 

Something most men do not realize is that biology plays a far larger role in their dating lives than you would expect. This means that men who suffer from low testosterone especially, will likely have a lower success rate with women.

What this means for you is that lifestyle is key. Start lifting heavy weights, get 8 hours of sleep, cut out the porn, eat a diet of whole foods. Not only will this be good for your dating life because of the biological boost you will receive. It will be great for the overall quality of your life in general.

3. Avoid Your Comfort Zone and Attack Fear 

Your comfort zone is where dreams go to die. When you get comfortable you get complacent and you no longer take risks. One of the best things you can do to create the life of your dreams is to do something that scares you shitless every day. Find a way to face a fear, get uncomfortable and do things you wouldn’t normally do on a regular basis.

This can be anything from cold showers to new foods to intentionally getting lost to tackling to fear of heights. Just do things that scare you or make you uneasy daily and you will set yourself up to live a life of purpose and power.
