Extra info for All Saints
Do I want a zit-ridden, fat pig? Do I want a toothless bitty hag? Probably not, because these types of women are always available and don’t take any effort to get. Maybe you would like the girl-next-door type, the Playboy centerfold type, or the college cheerleader type. Whatever the caliber of woman you choose, you should gear up your physical appearance toward attracting her. This is especially true in our society. You must stand out from the “average” guy in most situations. What I’m trying to get at here is that you may need to make some improvements on yourself.
The failure mode goes off automatically. In the absence of the success mode, people just automatically fail and go nowhere with their lives. The success mode is triggered by a goal. Every time we think about our goal, visualize our goal, talk about our goal, or write down our goal, we are turning on the success mode and we are triggering ourselves toward positive accomplishment. The devastating reality is, of course, that the great majority of people don’t think of this. And even when they do think of it, they lack the self-confidence, the will, or the courage to set goals and stick with them until they accomplish them.
You must focus in on what it is you want in life and then plan how you’ll get there. It’s the same with meeting women. Find one that you really like and map yourself out a plan on how you’re going to get her. Knowledge can also help create confidence. The more you learn about what it is that you want to be good at, the better you get at it. Things start to become easier when you have knowledge working for you, instead of making your backbone do all the work. Just remember this: always make your endeavor an exciting one.
