A few years back I read a fascinating book called ‘The Game’….
Not sure if you have read or not?
It’s a true story about a journalist named Neil who dives into the world of pick up artists, self improvement & self discovery….
Along the way into his investigative reports he realises that he is himself in need of ‘the game’ in order for him to battle his own insecurities, & become more confident & content.
We learn that historically Neil had always been very unsuccessful in love & had immense fear when it came to even attempting to talk to a woman, as he always feared the worst….he was always full of nothing but doubt….
One of the ‘rules’ of the game that Neil learns is the ‘3 second rule…..’
……… in basic terms, the whole concept is to approach somebody who you wish to interact with within 3 seconds….
……this can be applied to anyone or anything, could just be saying hello or initiating full conversation.
Think of it as simply pulling the trigger…..by doing so you are killing fear. The theory here is that the longer you leave it (like anything) the less likely you are to act, due to the fear.
Fear that IS holding you back.
You can apply this theory to all aspects of life, not just chatting to women (or men)!
What would you do if fear didn’t stop you? If fear didn’t paralyse you? Who would you be?
Whatever you apply this to:
>ACTING QUICKER WILL QUIETEN YOUR FEAR.
>ACTING QUICKER WILL RELIVE THE DOUBT IN YOUR MIND.
>THE FASTER YOU TAKE ACTION OR ‘PULL THE TRIGGER’ THE QUICKER YOU FACE FEAR.
The longer you leave it, the more time you have to question yourself & to doubt yourself.
I’m going to leave you with one question today:
What is the one thing that you KNOW you need to take action on, but are you not, and as a result it’s creating fear, doubt & insecurity in your life?
That’s all for today, until the next time

PS – I’ll tell you all about ‘peacocking’ sometime, another rule…….
