5 Secrets to help others LOVE YOU

  1.    Love them first

We want everybody to love us. Or at least, a mix of family and friends and a lover (or more) to make us feel alive & connected. We want our journey to have proof; some people along for the ride that can understand us & our decision making.

I once had a very good friend as I was going through a rough time in life, look at me and say, “How do you keep being you, how do you do it?” I’ve never felt so understood, in one sentence my friend let me know that he knew how hard things could be for my particular position in the world at times, and how hard I was trying to fight back in my own unique way.

We must get the courage to love others FIRST, and unconditionally. Do you smile at others first when you see a stranger? Do you forgive your friends first when there is a fight? Do you try to understand your loved ones’ decisions first or do you skip to judgment until they prove to you otherwise? Do you empathize first? All of these will help you start to get those special people out there to love you more.

  1.   Let them be themselves

One of the hardest things in the world is to actually be ourselves. Every day is a constant bombardment of ideas coming at us, comparisons to other lives on social media, and our own personal thoughts, ideas and creations.

We must choose our path from a mix of all of these, and sometimes under excruciating pressure from others, but mostly from ourselves.

So what is going to be right and wrong? Nobody really knows. But if you can let others walk their walk and cheer on their crazy flag you might just get more people on your side of the fence.

That doesn’t mean we can’t offer advice when they ask for it or speak to our own experiences; it just means we realize that although it may not look like it, everybody is out there battling in the world.

We are battling for happiness, battling for survival, battling to be loved by others and even to love ourselves including all the mistakes we have made. I was once in a high-pressure work situation and my co-worker came up to me and said the barrier-breaking words “How Can I Help?” It took me by surprise, and instantly we became an unstoppable team that night. I’ve used this line effectively ever since; I highly encourage you to try it sometime.

  1.   Give Your Truth

As you gain confidence in the world, you will be urged to share your truth. This doesn’t mean we force our way of life onto others, it means we show and describe our authentic lens of the world to the people around us. We share our stories, our challenges, our dreams. We share our gifts. We share our failures. We lead by example. And if you really want to get closer to others, you share your doubts.

There’s a certain power in vulnerability, a special healing force that comes out of giving our truth. When we bare our soul, other like-characters can’t help but relate and be drawn towards us.

This doesn’t mean we rant or lash out at the world. This doesn’t mean we whine. It means to say “Hey this is who I am and this is my journey; here’s what I have learned, maybe we can help each other somehow.”

  1.   Teach them what you know

One of our most basic needs is learning from others, from the time we are born we must learn to survive and this stays with us to death and beyond. I say this obvious point because later in life it seems people may be forgetting this fact. I don’t think they realize the power they hold when it comes to connecting with others here.

We learn, we grow and we learn even more to get ahead, but how are we helping others along the way?

Teaching others what you know gives a sense of connection like no other. Some people fulfill this with the need to become a parent, others may want to become managers at work or a coach like me.

Whenever and wherever you are, teaching others what we know at the proper and specific times is an art form. If you can hone this special skill pay attention to the respect you begin to receive.

It’s like a kind of passing of the torch. When we come up with an idea it’s as if we light the torch, then we must pass it on. Later on, we hope to get the flame back someday again, and the beautiful cycle continues. Every transfer of information bringing us closer and closer together.

  1.   Give them Freedom

This is the most challenging secret to learn especially for myself, and some may not agree with me here, that’s okay. We must give others their freedom. Our freedom is one of the most precious things on earth, but rarely will people be so giving and so loving as to let you really be free.

Often our friendships and relationships come with rules and obligations. We have emotional protection mechanisms put in place to keep us from getting hurt, when the reality is our soul can never really be damaged, only our ego.

I challenge you to grow. I challenge you to have faith that you can be connected to the special people in our life, whether they are with you physically or not. I challenge you to instead have those uncomfortable conversations, those getting-to-know-you deeper talks.

When you give others freedom, you give them the chance to grow. You give them the experience of living. You give them the power to make their own choices. Later on, this power & connection comes back to you tenfold.

Online Dating Tips & Etiquette

I’m guilty of some of these at times – hello, alcohol! That being said, we can all use reminders for a lot of things in life:

  1. No Response is a Response

Guys, we get it. How could anybody turn YOU down? You have everything that anybody could ever want. That being said, if somebody doesn’t respond back, it means they aren’t interested, or, maybe they are simply just too busy to reply. This is not the time to take it as a personal attack, nobody is out to get you, and NO, THEY DO NOT OWE YOU A RESPONSE EVEN IF YOU MESSAGE JUST TO COMPLIMENT THEM. Nobody owes you anything; especially a return response from some random stranger messaging online behind a computer, or on a phone. If you have a previous relationship in some sense then it is okay to expect a response. News flash: this is the online world, not the real world. If you get hurt enough to react with an angry message from a no response, or continue messaging them over and over again, you have way bigger self-esteem issues on your hands. Instead of getting angry at the no response, try thinking “how can I empower myself so this small stuff never bothers me again?” If they consistently show this behavior it should really be easy to move on. Do you really want a partner or friend, who ignores you?

  1. Don’t hit on anybody you wouldn’t say hi to in person

This would save a lot of problems online. Guys, if we only meet people through the online world we deny ourselves the opportunity to develop real social skills needed in relationships and intimate situations. If you don’t have the courage to go up to somebody and strike up a conversation, maybe its best you pass on this particular hottie. Continually going for people online that we think deep down are going to turn us down causes our self-esteem to crumble with every rejection. If, though, this rejection is at least done in person, we actually build up real resistance and confidence, which moves us forward in life making it easier to approach the next person. We also develop the ability to check our anxiety and relax in similar future situations.

  1. Don’t assume people know what you want

People are on here for all different reasons. Get to the point of what you are after.  Guys, do your best to compartmentalize dating apps away from Facebook messenger or other social media messengers. Is this a friend messaging me on a hook up app? Why? Oh the awkward world of online dating.

  1. Market what you want

Somebody once pointed out to me that if I want a romantic relationship then maybe I shouldn’t have a shirtless profile pic as my first impression. After thinking about it, I couldn’t agree more. There are many examples of guys saying they want one thing but then do another and it can get really confusing quickly.  As a side note: never ever send your butthole to anybody EVER. WTF!! Yes it has happened to me. Same goes for the special D shot unless it is discussed and asked for first. How rude and usually GROSS!

  1. Respect yourself

Anytime we are lashing out at strangers online we are not respecting ourselves. Get over it, gurl. Move on. Life is too short.  If you have any notes in your profile that are racist etc., you are not only disrespecting other people on there, in my opinion you are also disrespecting yourself. Anything you put out into the universe has one big boomerang effect. Hi Karma! How have you been?

  1. Cat Fishing – Who does this?!

I just don’t understand this. I have had a few fake profiles of me out in the world. It makes me feel all sorts of things: Flattered? Ugh not really. It’s more invasive than anything. It’s totally sad, and desperate, that anybody would think they would have to succumb to this to get any attention and love in the world. Looks aren’t everything! When you stop judging yourself, and the world, on looks alone; you will find its doors open wide to you.  Love yourself first, and this means putting the real you out in the world and developing your confidence to the point where nobody can ever bring you down. Ever.

The First Step to becoming a STUD

The First Step to becoming a STUD

I have been racking my brain, meditating, and asking my business coaches and friends: what is the piece that I am missing here? I have clients that take my course and people are buying my books but why is it just trickling in when I feel like people should be knocking down my door? As far as I know I’m the only guy in the world that can GUARANTEE my clients will have a DRAMATIC INCREASE in their self-confidence, and where it really matters to us.

90% of my clients have a significant relationship within a year of taking my course. 90 freaking percent! The other 10% you mention? Yup, well after taking my course they decided that they would finally live it up and ENJOY their single life for maybe the first time in their lives.  It still blows my mind.  I know guys that are getting married or are now living with their partners and it lifts me the fuck up knowing I had even if just a little piece of setting them on that path.

BUT, they all did the first step to becoming a STUD before I even spoke to them. This is really what started to change their lives.

So what the fuck are we waiting for? What is this first step!?

THE FIRST STEP TO BECOMING A STUD IS BEING MAN ENOUGH AND COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO RECOGNIZE WE NEED HELP AND THEN TAKE ACTION. EITHER BY SEEKING OUT INFORMATION OR FINDING THE RIGHT PERSON WHO HAS THE KNOWLEDGE WE NEED TO CHANGE AND GROW. WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT THINGS ARE NOT WORKING, AND THAT IF WE DO NOT CHANGE THEY NEVER WILL.

STUDs all have one thing in common: they realize they don’t know it all and never can. They have the ability to check their ego enough to investigate and then soak up information they need to get bigger, faster, better, stronger, wiser, more passionate, become a better lover, ANYTHING.

Remembering back in my desperate and lonely days, this was the thing that changed my life.  I remember thinking, Is this all there is to life? Is this as good as it gets? Then it hit me, some people out there are living happier, healthier, better lives. They seem to always have women or men after them and they seem to really be happy and fulfilled. I had to find out how they were doing it. So I summoned the courage, and for me, I started to read books on confidence, relationships, dating, spirituality, happiness – and to this day, I STILL READ AND AM STILL LEARNING about all of these same things.

So. Are we willing today to take the FIRST STEP TO BECOMING A STUD? ARE WE WILLING TO ADMIT WE DO NOT KNOW IT ALL? Are we willing to admit that we are all teachers in this universe but as well we are all learners at times?

We can do this.  We can step out of our comfort zones today and say, “alright, I’m here. Now let’s learn something and then never stop learning.”

Trust me it will be one of the best decisions of your entire life.

Top 10 reasons you may still be single (for 3+ years)

Being single is just as awesome as being in a relationship – if you are doing it right! That being said, if you do want to switch things up and be in a relationship and have struggled with this for 3 or more years, here are the top 10 reasons why this may be why. Enjoy!

You’re not willing to give others your time and energy

  1. Relationships involve putting in effort, sometimes even when it is not convenient for you.  You may spend hours every day on Tinder, POF or Grindr, and/or you go to the bars on weekends searching for that special somebody.  But when it comes to making a date- if you can’t even push your gym time back half an hour to fit them in, it is a clear sign that you don’t realize what relationships are all about, and what keeps them together.  There are countless upon countless of super sexy, successful men and women out there.  Month after month goes by, then year after year goes by and they still wonder. “Why am I still single when I have so much awesomeness going on”?  If this sounds like you, consider this point carefully. If you live in a large city and can’t seem to find a date on Friday night can you really blame the millions of other people out there? Of course not.  The only common denominator in all of your relationships (or lack thereof) is you.  There are plenty of great catches out there, perhaps you just haven’t taken the quality time with them because you have been slightly self-absorbed.  That’s okay, the minute you start to give others a real chance, open up, and be willing to give them your time and energy—the world of love might just open its doors to you.

You keep doing the same daily routine and expecting different results

      2. This sounds like common sense. But is it really? If you go to the same places, on the same days, and go online on the same sites at the same times every day, you are literally looking at the same pool of fish, day in and day out.  It’s time to mix it up. Go out on the other end of town this weekend.  Connect with a different group of friends. You have absolutely nothing to lose here.  Go a step farther and look at your life and see what ways you could do to possibly see an increase of new faces and meet new people. It’s simple math here; increase the odds of love in your favor.

You don’t have any interest in your own life. No hobbies, no interests. So why would they have an interest in you, if you don’t?

     3. If you spend more time creeping others’ lives on the internet other than on working and living in your own life, it is a clear sign that you have lost interest in your own life.  If you are not creating your own path and bringing others into it, others are bringing you into theirs. Keep a nice balance.  What would being interested in your own life look like? Well for one thing you wouldn’t be on your phone all the time.  You would be paying attention to what is happening in the here and now.  This one I am working on these days and it is not easy!

You don’t love yourself and the world is following suit

     4. When we love ourselves, we give off a special aura of confidence people enjoy being around. Do you REALLY love yourself and think you are amazing?  If you don’t, try showing yourself some true love.  Eat healthy, exercise, and don’t forget to feed your soul (meditate, walks in nature) and your mind (learning new skills, books). You give and you get. Not the other way around.  Take care of yourself and watch how others start to pay a little more attention to you. If you don’t know where to start, that’s okay, reach out to a recommended professional.

You are in a stagnant relationship that you are too afraid to let go of

5. Playing it safe is great for a lot of people. If this is you nothing I write will change that.  I can tell you though that you will never ever find that game changing partner if you are clinging on to a past that isn’t serving you anymore.

You have become bitter and jaded, cynical

    6. Nobody likes to be around a Debbie Downer. Your friends will put up with you and your family will encourage you to pick up your feet in life. But the bottom line is, people that have a positive outlook and fun attitude attract others while negativity pushes others away.  Get over yourself. You were never really hurt in the past, your ego was.  Let it go and get back out there and try to enjoy this short time you have here.  You’re only going to be this age once in your life so it’s a good idea to be making the most of it.

You have lost faith

7. Yes you have had some bad break ups and have run into some serious assholes. I’m sorry for that, nobody deserves that, really.  But if you have given up on finding a partner in this life that is a sure fire way to get exactly that, nothing.  To gain big you have to be willing to keep loving the world, without expectations, even when things don’t go as planned.

Your belief systems hold you in place and reinforce your doubts

     8. We often have experiences in life and because of such, treat them as the ultimate “truth” of the world.  The problem with this is that once we have a specific set of programming in our brain, we unconsciously do everything we can to see and validate these “truths.” If we go out with a few girls/guys that are extremely superficial and come to the conclusion that “all men or woman are superficial”, we set ourselves up for failure and to repeat the same process. Why? Because our brains are always working and we want to be “right” about how we feel. So we seek out the energy of yet another superficial person because it already fits into a story we “know” and are familiar with, while ignoring the down to earth guys or girls and unchartered territory that comes along with it.  The result: you once again become validated in your thoughts that you are “right” in your belief and opinion about this, and meet yet another superficial person that you are frustrated with.  The problem with this cycle is IT DOESN’T serve you and it’s definitely not the same experience all of us are having.  There are plenty of down to earth awesome guys/gals out there; having THIS belief in my brain empowers me, helps me feel good, and puts me in a position of strength to have the correlating experiences that come along with it. You have to be willing to see outside of your own limiting experiences and look at the glass half full if you want different results.

Bad hygiene

    9. Bad breathe and bad body odor are deal breakers for a lot of people.  Some guys take this “natural smell” thing a little far. If it’s sour smelling, for the love of God take a shower.  When it comes to bad breathe, if you aren’t brushing 3 times daily and flossing then you run the risk of others backing away when you are talking to them….and you can forget any type of kissing.  The same runs true with colognes and perfumes.  Keep those to a minimum.  How do you know if you stink or not? Ask a really great friend to give you some honest truth.

You just haven’t met them yet

    10. Relax. Single life is awesome. If YOUR single life is awesome, then it’s likely you don’t really care when your next big loving relationship will come along.  It’s also very likely that others will want to be a part of your awesome life.  Breakups happen all the time and we are all in the process of life.  Enjoy the ride and don’t get stuck in singledom or in a stagnant relationship.  Once you have mastered the art of love people will come into your life with ease, and you can flow from being single to being in a relationship (and vice versa) with ease, grace and joy!

The Scent of a Man

You walk into a club, feeling fresh and fine, say hi to the door guy you know, wave to a few friends, and then BAM! it hits you like a ton of bricks, a huge waft of man smell.  Question is, are you into this? The debate has been going on for ages, should guys wear deodorant? Girls, guys? Please let us know! Cologne? Or has this all gone way too far.  Myself, I like a bit of man smell, depending on the person, the time and the place. I also like some guys that wear small hints of cologne, it acts almost as a unique calling card. Each smell so unique. When taken too far, the BO thing can be a nightmare. I’ve left a few parties after I’ve gone into a pro-fetish environment and had to leave immediately after coming across an overpowering sour scent.  Dude, that’s not hot at that point, you need a shower.

Hygiene is very important when it comes to man smell. A guy who is in good shape and eats healthy will tend to give off a man smell that’s simply irresistible to the ladies and the gentlemen out there.  When the body is getting rid of too many access toxins, it could spell trouble for those sexy aromas you wish to produce. Keep this in mind when deciding on the deodorant next Saturday night, it may not be your week to test the waters of your scent.

Remember time and place too gentleman.  I was once talking about a professional manner about a colleague, “do you know that guy, he’s awesome you guys might be able to work together” I said .  He replied with “is that the guy who always smells like BO?”  From this story alone guys, always make sure you have deodorant on in professional settings, with colleagues, and in public spaces.  I’ve almost lost my lunch a few times when taking the subway and a man or woman stinks a heavy stank of rottenness.  Can’t you smell that?? My eyes are watering!

Enjoy finding your perfect man smell! The woman or man of your dreams may just find you irresistible, when you have mastered the art of man smell.

Hot Guy Syndrome

 

There’s a silent epidemic happening and it really needs to stop: Apps, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat; there’s a bazillion ways to connect with people these days. We can send a PM, a like, a woof, or we can swipe left and right among other things, and this is all great. “The hottest person I’ve ever seen in my life started following me on Instagram. YaY!”
As always, with the great comes responsibility and privilege, and we are wasting this opportunity. Think of all the super hotties you know that seem to be chronically single: How does this happen? Can you think of a few people that seem to have the perfect outer shell, decent career, yet don’t seem to have a date most Friday nights? I’m about to let you in on a little secret, for you consistently single heart breaking hotties out there. Sorry trolls, there’s nothing to learn here for you in this post, so feel free to move along.
Every SINGLE quality that we have as an identity has a good and bad side. A double edge sword exists with every label we give ourselves and to others. In this case, being a looker as a man these days with the ripped bod can act as a weight, holding us back. Why? Because, as we all know, attractive people have it a little easier in this world. People are constantly trying to meet us, to be friends with us; and in lots of cases, to hire. The drawback is when we don’t develop our social skills with everybody else. We simply don’t need to most of the time, so sometimes we end up lacking the ability to communicate efficiently. We don’t have to be funny to cope with our feelings, and we never make the attempt at a joke, or we aren’t interesting in conversation because we will get invited to the parties regardless. But, when it comes to relationships, looks become just one of many qualities that can help create a romantic relationship and/or keep it together. If looks are all we have to offer, we’re doomed to be alone.
In some more severe cases, the hottie never has to make any effort in any of his friendships and relationships – over time, they don’t gain the ability and skills to ask people out on dates. They forget to check in on good friends. They don’t realize that they need to make an effort, to plan, or to bring other things to the table with people, so they don’t. They just wait till the other person does, and they usually do; but, eventually, they stop. Around them people have been growing, evolving and developing. The really great catches we want are hot too; but not only that, they want a connection, they want to feel wanted, they need to see effort and investment or they won’t be willing to do the same. The same thing applies to friendships: If it is one sided for too long one by one they will drop off. The good news is we can avoid this.
Guys, now is the time to look at how we are operating in all of our relationships; this includes family, friends, lovers. Are we making an effort in each of these? Are we taking responsibility for our lives in the areas where it matters? Or, are we letting the others do all of the work? I’m not saying overkill and be constantly texting and needy, here. I’m saying if you are hot and lonely, maybe this is one area you could improve upon. Grownups don’t have a lot of time, and they will simply stop investing in people that are not willing to invest in them.
Selfishness will get us nowhere in the long run.
So, STUDs, get out there and get some balance back in your life: Plan a dinner with a friend, ask somebody out. It’s your turn! Don’t miss out on your opportunity.
Give and you shall receive. Give your love and energy out into the world and I promise you will always have amazing people surrounding you.
