This is a concept that I find personally really tough and that I need to put more effort into. I’ve improved yes. But I still catch myself saying to myself, when things aren’t going well, “what the hell is wrong with you,” “why are you such a loser” and “how could you be such a dumbass.” These are hardly productive and I know they specifically don’t work for me. I’ve personally always done my best work when people give encouragement and built up my confidence; never when they have yelled at me or put me down. So why would I still say these mean things to myself? I think for a long time it was because I didn’t know any better. Now that I am conscious of it, it is all about breaking old habits and patterns that don’t serve me.
We are all flawed in many ways. Fears, doubts and worrying if we are “good enough” for this or that can stop us dead in our tracks and can also make these original flaws seem exponentially greater than they are in reality. How we present these weaknesses though to ourselves and to the people around us can make a huge difference in our dating life and other relationships. If we don’t have enough self compassion to feel whole and loved NOW and with all of our flaws, it won’t matter who might happen to come along. The same result in the long run is the same, unhappiness and feeling disconnected. True, we can work on making ourselves better, and we should do this yes. But practising self love and self compassion is the only sure way to start on the path to long term happiness and success in our relationships. You need to exercise for YOU. You need to eat right because you love YOURSELF. You need to learn about the world around you and strive to be a more interesting person FOR YOU. If you don’t find yourself interesting- then NOBODY will. If you don’t put effort in everyday to take care and love yourself- then potential dating partners won’t either. The effort starts with you, and YES YOU DESERVE THIS.
Self compassion takes COURAGE. Give yourself a break, show yourself some caring, nurturing and understanding and start to take the necessary actions on the journey to a new and better life.
I wanted to write a bit about something I continue to see and experience in life and what I refer to as the “Minority Complex”. The MC is a perception of life that is always limited, is constantly under threat, sees his own uniqueness as a fault or problem mostly in their unknown subconscious and ends up acting this out in a cycle in reality. To put it simply, I believe the MC is why there has never been a female president in the U.S, why there are so few to none gay male pop culture artists and politicians, and why ethnic politicians and ethnic pop culture icons (Chinese, Indian particularly,) in North America are still rare.
How is this so?
Well, we have a tendency to “blame society” or the “white privileged male” for the status quo. But im here to offer a different reality. Sorry but the truth does hurt sometimes. The MC is a huge problem why minorities don’t get ahead; it’s not ALL because of the greater society (the obvious), it’s also because MINORITIES DON’T OFTEN HELP THERE OWN CAUSE by supporting and encouraging and PHYSICALLY acting to help their fellow minority members and mostly THEMSELVES.
Example, if all the U.S women voted for a female president it wouldn’t matter what the “white privileged male” did at all, we would have a female president. Example, if every gay/bisexual/trans man and woman came out of the closet tomorrow the stigma of homosexuality would be gone almost over night as everyone would become aware that these issues affect them and their families personally.
A recent character that shows this MC in a very nasty way is Samuel L. Jacksons’ character Uncle Tom in the movie Django Unchained .
How does this MC happen?
The MC lives in our subconscious. Because you may feel you have a weakness or don’t live up to societies standard in some shape or form, you set limits on your own life and what you realistically can and cannot achieve. Because of these limits, when you see others you perceive as in the same minority try to move into new territory or a new job or place of perceived prestige- you may also believe that they too cannot “make it” in this new territory based on your own personal fear, beliefs, experiences and expectations. This in turn causes you to think they are either wasting their time or you could even think they are downright stupid or crazy for even trying!
The MC can be even sneakier. Sure maybe a gay man might set up a meeting for a friend to get a job and then at the last minute could say “hey make sure you act straight otherwise they might not hire you.”
Being an out and gay artist I have literally seen this MC over and over again. People in the community seeing my talent and saying you are great for this or that role or that my music should be played on the radio or you would be great for TV “but can you pretend to be straight cause we don’t see a market for you even though I personally like you.”
The “I don’t see a market for a gay artist” makes me laugh still to this day. Not only do we live in a digital age where you can sell music worldwide, we have notable (straight) pop icons SELLING and MARKETING TO GAY SOCIETY (Lady Gaga and Madonna anybody?) Clearly they see a financial benefit to targeting this market. Because of the MC though, believing a gay artist can actually market to the SAME group of people and have success in pop culture still seems impossible to some.
My point is to give consciousness and light to a new limitless way of thinking for a better life for you and those around you,
What I do:
I help men achieve a dramatically improved self worth, self image and a greater sense of connection; this improves their relationships and helps to create new potential ones.
I provide a framework and tools so the Studs In Training become more true to their authentic self and thrive in a new world of possibilities.
Why I do this:
I LOVE seeing positive change when guys decide to take their lives to the next level. The physical/mental and spiritual growth inspires me in return to continue to strive for my own best life. Sharing my experiences and skill set gives me a sense of true purpose and sense of connection with my clients.
I help bring out the STUD in YOU.

I wanted to share an insight of how I go about as the Stud Trainer and why my program builds such confidence and change so quickly with the participants I have had.
What do you think is the difference between somebody you would consider “cute” and what you would call “sexy”. We know a “Stud” would be automatically considered more on the sexy side but why is this?? Where does this come from?? And do we all have this in our true nature?
Well, ONE of the reasons for peoples sexiness derives from a place a lot of us are not comfortable with- this would be our DARK side. Our dark side is where our creativity stems from, its our adventurous side, can be our playful side. Society mostly sees it as our self destructive side and a side that can be harmful to others. These last two reasons are why a lot of us choose to ignore or repress this side of ourselves. But a sexy Stud is comfortable with his dark side- he doesn’t repress it and he makes no apologies for it.
TRUE: this side cannot always be controlled and can and sometimes does make for some external problems, frustrations and guilt. But with proper safe outlets, practice and the right guidance, coming to peace with your inner dark side can unleash a magnetism and sexiness you never before thought possible.

You may have heard this term before. But what is the Law of Abundance and where do we see this operating in our daily life and sexual encounters?
The Law of Abundance is simply this: what you really FEEL you have ENOUGH of, you will get MORE of. Ever wonder why a certain type of male or female always seems to be attracted to you and you wish they were somebody else?? This is the Law of Abundance at work- you feel you have ENOUGH of this type ( and maybe don’t want), so this type continuously shows up in your life. Of course knowing this now we can use it to our advantage. Start by paying way more attention to the type of males/females that you like, be grateful when you see them (anywhere), feel that they are in fact with you and in your life (even though they may not be and you wish they were closer!) and put yourself in situations where they will most likely be. The more conscious of all these experiences you are the more likely it will be that you will convince your brain you have ENOUGH of this favorite type of yours, and this in turn will increase your odds of them being around you and in your actual life.

Hi there and thanks for checking out Stud Training 101. This blog provides useful tips on sexiness, physical/mental/spiritual well being and also the actual application of these. For example, why IS meditation so powerful, why do I care about it, and how does this help me get laid or find somebody I want to connect with??
You may have seen this on TV, Facebook or heard about it through a friend or website and wondered what this REALLY is all about!!
Well, what exactly is a STUD? We see examples of them every day on TV and around us in the clubs and at our work place. They enter a room with confidence, strong posture and a magnetism that seems to attract people to them. They engage in what looks like FUN and meaningful conversations with their friends, family members, co-workers, and even perfect strangers. Behind closed doors a STUD is fulfilled and feels happy- this is not just a “front” to put on in public. A STUD engages in AUTHENTIC behavior and is always on a quest to improve his life and happiness. YES, like everybody a STUD goes through ups and downs; but as he improves his skills and continues to work towards loving his life and his self these down times become fewer and further between and less painful, and are consistently being replaced with fun, intimate, perhaps sexual and purposeful experiences.
Is this you; are you a STUD??
If so, great…. if not- and there are some areas that could use some improvements- then Stud Training 101 is for YOU!!
The actual course provides 1 on 1 support to set the participants life on a crash course for dramatically improved self confidence, self image, improved physical/mental attractiveness and improved social relationships.
So, are you ready to go after what you REALLY want out of life????
