Favorite Success Quote
1. You Have to Work on Yourself
You cannot expect to have successful fulfilling relationships if you are not first investing in yourself. If you aren’t going anywhere or working towards anything; if you dont have your shit together…then why would a woman want you?
Before you can have the relationships you are looking for, you MUST get your own life in order. Meditate, eat healthy and hit the gym, read, and build your personal brand. Become the man that women want to be with, and the quality and quantity of your relationships will increase exponentially.
2. Take Full Responsibility
In relationships, men often struggle in accepting the responsibility for conflicts or problems. We throw out bullshit justifications and excuses as to why it’s our girlfriend or wife’s fault.
By doing this however, we relieve ourselves of the ability to take the blame and fix the problems we are facing in our relationships.
To truly succeed with women, you must accept the blame, take responsibility and work together to fix any problems.
3. Admit Your Need for Help
Most men hate showing emotion. And with good reason. Men who wear their heart on their sleeves are often perceived to be weak and incapable. Unfortunately, this often leads to a large number of men refusing to ask for help even in their darkest times.
In our society, we have taken this to an extreme, bottling up emotion and never letting anyone in for fear of what they would think. By doing this, however, we cut ourselves off from people who have the tools, knowledge and resources to help us with whatever we are facing.
One of the best things you can do to find a healthy place to discuss your struggles and trials and get the help you need is to find an all men’s mastermind and become a regular contributor.
Surround yourself with other men in the same shit and you will find an overwhelming amount of support in much needed areas of your life.
4. Cut Out the Shit
If you are filling your mind and body with garbage, that is what your life will put out.
On your quest to become the type of man that women want to be with, you must begin by cutting out everything in your life that a woman would not want to be with.
So remove what is unnecessary in your life or holding you back from being the man you want to be and start moving towards the man you want to be.
5. Stop Having to Prove Yourself
One of the marks of a true man is that he doesn’t feel the need to prove himself to anyone. He is totally self confident and sure of himself, and he doesn’t need anyone else’s approval.
Learn to be ok with just being you. Don’t feel the need to validate yourself before anyone, be happy being you because you are enough. As long as you are growing and expanding, you are enough, and always will be.
