There’s a great feeling of accomplishment in doing something yourself. Being “self-made” is often seen as the American dream.
And so, asking for help can seem like a failure or a cheap way out. It hurts your pride to admit you can’t do it alone.
But, let me remind you…
All that is beautiful and breathtaking in this world was built on the previous work of others. Every invention, building, and scientific breakthrough required collaboration and support. There was always a previous source of inspiration to improve upon.
Let’s set the record straight.
If women always tell you, “You’re a great guy but I don’t feel that spark…”
It’s because they don’t feel a sexual connection with you. And that’s most likely because you haven’t taken the right actions to facilitate that attraction.
You may be sweet and have engaging conversations. You make women laugh. You wait patiently until a girl’s comfortable with you.
I grew up during the baby stages of the world wide web. I’m talking AOL 2.0 CDs, Lycos searches, and my Dragon Ball Z Geocities page.
The internet helped me communicate with people around the world in ways I never thought possible. It’s beaming my voice to you right now.
The internet is arguably the most impactful technological creation of my lifetime.

In February I ran my second confidence retreat with my friend Jason Connell in Austin, Texas.
Jason brought the much needed spiritual and philosophical elements to the experience. His presence from professional speaking gripped everyone and kept us grounded in the moment. He always asked the perfect questions to uncover core issues necessary for profound growth.
Pervert. Freak. Creep. Pig. Idiot. Asshole. Slut.
It’s so easy to judge someone and put a label on them.
We’ve always been taught there are two types of people: the good and the bad. The heroes and the villains.
But life isn’t a superhero movie. It’s full of complicated people with complicated biology making complicated choices due to complicated backstories.
