Being badass is a way of life.
It stems from your attitude, not merely your actions or your words.
What you need to do is to change the way you think.
Because how you think determines how you speak, how you act and thus the image that you portray to the world.
If you have the mindset of a pussy you are not stuck with that forever. The subconscious mindset is something that can be molded and changed into anything we want. If you apply yourself with a desire to become more of a man then in time you will.
You are always influenced by the people you spend the most time with. So be a badass by surrounding yourself with other badasses, rather than people who will drain your energy.
I have found that the idea of living consciously has been hijacked by some quack types who want to push their quasi spiritual mumbo jumbo on you. But at its core the idea about living consciously is something everybody should reflect on.
It is about conscious manliness. It is about living life as you choose and blazing your own path, whatever that path may be. It is not about driving a motorbike and trying to be a playboy.
What is personal development but the concept that life as it is now is not good enough? Personal development can be great. But it has pitfalls that should be avoided. The key is to take it in moderation.
These are the enthusiastic beginner, the disillusioned leaner, the capable but cautious performer and the self reliant achiever. Understand the stages to prevent you getting bogged down at stage 2.
When you develop a mindset of success you can make amazing progress in any field. The principles of success apply whatever it is you are doing. The details change based on the endeavor but the underlying attitude required to achieve remains the same. Learn it and it will bring positive change in all areas of life.
We have come to accept mediocrity as normal in many areas of life. But we should be striving for personal excellence in everything we do.
It is not manly to blame others for your failings. Stop making excuses for your shortcomings and start making things happen in life. Take responsibility.
Being a Pick Up Artist is about learning to seduce women. Becoming badass is about improving your masculinity to the point where success with women is just a natural side effect.
Prolonged eye contact asserts your position as the dominant person in a social group. By forcing others to look away you become the alpha male. Those who avoid your eyes look away in an act of social cowardice.
My biggest period of personal development came from my life in the military. I learned discipline, focus, tenacity and the ability to push myself to the very limits of my ability.
Setting high personal standards is a habit that successful people have. They challenge themselves in all areas of life and are constantly improving and always succeeding.
A real man can hold his own on the piss but he is a social drinker and a classy drinker not a meataxe. He isn't drowning his sorrows because he has no sorrows.
Things aren't just the way they are. You have to question authority, question why rules and conventions exist and challenge their existence if need be. Stupid and unjust rules have always existed and it is those who show leadership that challenge them.
When you allow your life to be at the whim of circumstance it is easy to make excuses. Take responsibility and charge of what happens in your life and that way you can live however you want.
