This video (safe for work) is probably one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen. Fresh out of one of my nightmares. It shows what it’s like to climb to the top of a 1700 foot tower–with no safety lines. If you had the opportunity, would you climb the 1700 foot tower in the video?
Today we have another brilliant post by my good friend Robbie Kramer from Inner Confidence. Have you been approaching women but not getting the results you want because you have too much anxiety? Then read on! There is a tragic mistake men make over and over when they approach women. I did it for years
