The Most Dangerous Word in Existence

tamasgaspar.deviantart.com1Within the treacherous deep of the catacombs, there is a book.

Massive in its proportion, this book holds billions of words on its razor-thin pages.

It is the Book of Not Approaching.

Turn page after page and you will find this vast, endless book filled with one thing:

Excuses.

There is always a reason why you shouldn’t approach her. Always some excuse dangling.

Your mind has brilliantly written this book. It is exhaustive, familiar, and each excuse is indexed for near instantaneous reference.

There are many excuses, some odd (I don’t like the shirt I’m wearing), some deep (What is the momentary pleasure of sex really worth anyway?) and some just stupid (She’ll think I’m trying to steal her laptop.)

But there is one excuse that conjures up the demons from hell. One excuse so powerful, all the other excuses in the book cower in fear and kneel before it.

This excuse: I’ll start Tomorrow.

This one word, Tomorrow, carries such force, that it can slay an entire year’s worth of planning in one swift blow.

It is the most dangerous word.

It is a spell cast by the Devil himself, a trick he played on us long ago.

For tomorrow never comes. And you never make the move.

You see a cute girl sitting in a cafe and think about approaching her. But you don’t. At least not… today.

loopydave.deviantart.com4There is always a reason why you shouldn’t take action right now.

I need to learn some more first. I feel too tired right now. I need to start going to the gym first. I’m not in the mood today. I haven’t warmed up.

And the next day it’s the same.

On and on, you get older by the day, your desire muted more and more until one day you find yourself an elderly man thinking about what could have been.

Do something. Anything. Start somewhere. Even if it means simply walking across the room and standing next to this girl.

Even if it means simply going out for a walk in a neighborhood where you might see some women.

Make a plan for yourself and stick to it, a plan that starts off with something manageable, something you know you can do every day.

Take some kind of pro-active movement instead of letting the sands of time sweep you away.

A thousand years from now, you’ll be lying in a grave, a corpse barely recognizable. There will be nothing, perhaps this earth long abandoned by its inhabitants.

But you’ll have one thing: you’ll have lived your life a man. And by your side, a page torn from the book. And from that page a single line is erased: I’ll start Tomorrow.

Because you’ll have done it. You may not have taken the full action that you wanted to take. And it wasn’t always well-received.

But you’ll rest in peace knowing that you took some kind of action.

That you fought the sands of time.

And spit in the face of the Devil himself.

And maybe, just maybe…

You’ll meet a hot chick as well.

Try listening to Pink Floyd ‘Time’. ‘One day you wake to find ten years have got behind you’. This is so true, it has happened to me, take heed people. Act now before it’s too late.

Cameron says:

LOl, cool post Eric.

jim says:

That’s totally true !!!
it’s exactly what we are feeling
Anything is an excuse not to approach and call off for tomorrow

as far as I’m concerned, summing all the “tomorrows” ended up in years doing nothing

Patrick says:

I’m a long time reader of your blog, never commented before but just had to say Eric that was an incredibly inspiring post. Thank you.

Relentless says:

Its so true, it took me nearly 5-6 months to finally get my act together and begin approaching daily after nearly a year of being in some sort of limbo. I kept putting it off, it was on my to-do list but i never set aside the time to actually do something about it. I was waiting for something to give me the drive, the ambition, the hunger to make shit happen. Little did I know I really was just waiting for myself to man up once again, and begin taking action. Thats all you need after all.

wingman says:

The best way to break a pattern is to create a new one. And we don’t have much time left. Every second on this earth is one less second before we pass. NOW is the time to make it happen. Tomorrow is for making it happen again.

Great post, Eric. Hopefully this puts fire under some butts.

Richard P says:

Great Post – I do make a conscious effort to approach 1 woman a day (usually ends up being 3-10), but it’s steady because it’s on my mind a lot.

Also with Brad P’s teaching’s you just launch 1-2 of your openers so you never OVER THINK.

There is no such thing as tomorrow, only today. I believe in this wholeheartedly.

Eric,

This is such a powerful post…sent a tingle down my spine reading it.

Thanks

Xamuel says:

The most common excuse: “I couldn’t think of any good openers…” Bah, don’t think, just go :P

Rems says:

I agree with Anon time passes so fast. It’s ten years since High School and it feels like I didn’t do since then because I procrastinated day after day telling myself I’ll do it tomorrow. For the morrow never comes! You’ve got to do it NOW!

About what Xamuel said (“Bah, don’t think, just go”), I would add this: “and trust yourself”. Your inconscious will find something to say. Just focus on what you want in general. Your inconscious will take care of the details so you don’t have to think consciously about all of them. As an exemple, before opening a girl you can tell yourself “I want to open her and have a fun interaction with her”. You say it once in your head with conviction! You don’t need to rehearse it constantly in your head. It’s as simple as that! (If it doesn’t work the first time it’s normal! Just keep practicing until it’s integrated)

Life in general is simple and easy as long as you don’t think too much!

Mike says:

That was sick Eric. Like one of the previous posters, I’ve been a follower of your site, but never posted anything. We must get out of our heads. Sometimes i have interactions with women that go great, I get the number, then 5 minutes after, I’m like “holy shit, how did that happen.” So effortless, so easy. It’s silly to think anything but positive thoughts before approaching.

Ive noticed I need to warm up…give me 5 interactions with women and I’m HOT after that! Or at least indifferent when blown off by a new girl.
