The 7 Deadly Sins of The Game
Sin #1 – Fear
For most people, it begins with fear. We fear the unknown. We fear life itself. We fear the consequences of not doing “what we are told” and chasing after the outliers of society. And so, we stand in line like the rest of the masses, and follow the conventional wisdom.
Fear of women is often misunderstood by women. As men, we sometimes fear beautiful women. We fear their power over us, and we fear ourselves. Of what we might do in their presence, of the reflection in the mirror of our own self worth compared to her “perceived value”.
When newbies first start learning about game, something about this fear compels them to confront it. Not every hot girl is the devil, and not every one of them is mean spirited. We learn slowly that as men, we are entitled to find a girl we believe to be fully attractive and totally in love with, instead of settling for less.
Nonetheless, many do not get this opportunity, because they are plagued by the first sin in the game: FEAR. This sin takes away our time, our opportunities to meet people, and our precious mental strength just thinking about it! Our days go by unfulfilled. In order to conquer fear, one must name it. Then, face it. Over and over again. Approach Anxiety can be killed, and you can become very good at killing it.

- We only made about 1k this month, but a lot of the money came in during August 1-5 and we netted another 1k within 5 days. Sometimes your cash flow comes in later and you have to be ready to expect cash variances from month to month. As always, plan it out and make sure you have enough money to pay your expenses. Always have savings just in case.
- The new affiliate product we tested wasn’t great, but we are getting record signups and building up a significant list.
- This month I bought the Seduce With Style business, and going forward my main focus will be on growing that business, the sale of the ebook, and its subsequent upsell programs.

Gaming 9s and 10s Series – Part 3: Dealing with Rejection from 9s and 10s
I want to fuck hot chicks…
The truth came out. I can no longer deny my true feelings. Despite my success at the early age of 20, I was, for reasons I could not explain at the time, miserable. I had a very prestigious job at a very prestigious management consulting company, I lived in a comfortable luxury apartment, and I was young and naïve.
Even before I had read The Game I realized that something was missing. How can a guy like me, who followed all the rules, and did everything right, not attract girls? Something didn’t add up. The Game gave me the words to describe the feeling that I had, and this kick-started the long journey into discovering who I really was and how we truly behave as social beings.
Right now, I am still on my journey. Rejection is tough. Read more
Style and Beauty at the Workplace: Do Good Looking Men and Women Make More Money?
Question: Do good looking men have it better in the workplace?
Beauty is a big advantage in the bedroom, but it is also an advantage in the boardroom.
Although it does not approach racism or sexism in magnitude, lookism appears to be a form of discrimination in the workplace. And a silent one. No one thinks that has been offered a lower salary because he is short! Good-looking men are more likely to get hired at a higher salary, to be promoted faster than unattractive men – Nancy Etcoff
Despite physical limitations (height, facial features), style plays a big role in one’s stature at work. Of course, being lazy doesn’t help. Ultimately, a good work ethic and a mastery of your skill set will ensure proper and competitive employment at all times. All things being equal, the guy who looks the most masculine and in control gets the highest salary. Keep in mind that there are differences in company culture and we are speaking generally. At Google, for example, the geekiest engineer may control the higher salary.
Question: What about for hot women at work (corporate white collar)? Read more
