Kill Your Game Guru

“Beyond a given point man is not helped by more ‘knowing.'”
Ernest Becker

Since resuming workshops, I’ve been more careful about analyzing my day approaches. From those reflections I’ve realized that it’s not just a couple things I do right, but literally hundreds of things, most of which I’m not consciously aware of. I can teach a guy everything I think is important to getting laid, but it will never be enough for him to get at my exact level. He’ll improve, perhaps considerably so, but he won’t turn into me.

Achieving a mastery level of any skill depends on three things: innovation, creativity, and motivation. You can live with me, watch me do 1,000 approaches, have a brain implant that offers a direct connection to my throbbing brain, but you will still not get to where I’m at right now. Instead, you must forge your own path after you’ve attained a competent level of skill which can best be described as semi-consistency. You must then invent a game that works best for you, becoming your own guru in order to achieve the highest levels. There is no book written out there to turn you into a master—you must write it yourself. That’s the lone feature that separates guys in the big leagues from those still stuck in the minors.

Everything you read on my blog is intended for beginner and intermediate gamesmen. I sometimes share advanced tips on my newsletter, but those tips are so customized to me that it’s not going to be helpful for men who are much different. I’ve been in the blog game long enough to know that you’ll grow out of me within a couple years (for evidence check out the difference in commenter names on a two-year-old post like How To Pickup Girls For $100 A Month and something more recent like Most Livable Country: Colombia, Argentina, Brazil.) Unless you’re reading me for entertainment purposes, you’ll either give up on the game or take off the training wheels and do your own thing with minimal outside influence.

Every man who is serious about the game will arrive at a point where there’s nothing more he can learn from other guys besides the occasional line. In the past year I’ve taken note of maybe four or five interesting lines from Roissy, Virgle Kent, and Mixxmaster, but not much more. It’s not that I’m closed off to learning, but—at risk of displaying my ego—who’s going to teach Jimi Hendrix lessons on guitar? The point of diminishing return from outside game material has long been passed. Any further improvement in my game must come from within.

If you’re mostly content with your sex life, but want to achieve the next level, the only way is to stop studying game and then reinvent the damn thing yourself. It’s possible that reading about game every day on the internet is a crutch that prevents you from experimenting and developing your own material where you come up with insights into human psychology and behavior that perfectly match your life and personality. Otherwise you read my blog and think that you’re “involved,” but you’re still waiting for a magic line or technique instead of grinding it out in the field. I don’t mind feeding you, but you’ll hit a ceiling of high competency that I or any other game guru can’t help you with.

Like an injured lion cub brought back to health at the local zoo, there comes a time when the lion heals, grows up, and is ready to be released into the wild. His first couple of steps are shaky and fearful, but next thing you know he’s tearing into the neck of a gazelle right before stuffing his meat into a young lioness under a shady tree after executing the paw nudge opener. His roars of delight can be heard for miles. Thing is I don’t remember ever teaching him the paw nudge opener.

Paw nudge opener. That’s the one I’ve been waiting for!

Great post and it does seem like a lot of guys fall into this trap. Some guys switch up their ideas about how to approach before even going out. You have to choose something, try it and see how it works for you. Not every type of game is very every person. That doesn’t even take into account that all game methods don’t work on every girl in every environment.

This game journey has been a lot about discovering my own style and what works best for me. Also finding what type of girls are most receptive to my game. Putting in the effort, innovating, and discovering things for yourself is the key, not reading or studying online.

There’s no learning in spending excessive time online versus having the real world interactions/experiences. Like I told my friends once, if everyone would take the time they spent updating their facebook status and apply it to researching cancer, we’d probably have a cure for cancer.

“but want to achieve the next level, the only way is to stop studying game and then reinvent the damn thing yourself.”

Very true.

Hell, I will even take it a step further, I think you will actually get worse at Game by reading too many Game blogs.

That’s why I read your for entertainment.

Deep post.

And very true.

I think that other gurus can only get you started. In the end, you have to do it on your own.

Still, good advice is good advice. A seasoned vet can teach you a lot, especially in the beginning. That is why I like this blog b/c it is tailor made for guys new to game like me.

Eventually, I probably will stop reading this blog, but in the mean time…good stuff.

This + the hungry wolf post are probably two of the most important game posts you’ve made, and what most game gurus will never say. I guess this is scratching some of your hairy balls.

As someone who found out about ‘game’ from an old roommate, and then labored over books, ebooks, and videos for 3+ years, I can say with certainty that once you’ve got some social competence and a couple of pickup lines, you’ve got basically all that you need. All the materials in the world relating to game won’t help you much after that. It’s a similar idea to Self-Help. You can read 1,000 books, but it won’t do shit until you put your ass into gear.

About 6 months ago i started to feel like i out grew your blog and forum. I still read it for tips, motivation, and entertainment. After a while i realized that most of the people on here are hopeless betas, beginners who are years away from getting consistent results, liars, p4p guys who never mention that they are paying, or pua salesmen trying to sell their products.

that being said, this is one of the best places for guys just geting started in Game.

Game encourages over analyzing and over thinking. Thats beta behavior. Just approach approach approach and if your meant to be a ladies man, you will figure it out.

LOL. This is how I feel about Roissy’s blog. That blog used to be about game, but has morphed into a blog about politics.

Most of the posters (all?) are shut-ins and old guys who love to talk “game theory” all day, but never actually do any gaming in real life.

So, like Roosh said, time to kill the game guru shit, and actually step out into the field.

I no longer read any “mainstream” PUA stuff – I prefer blogs like this with a no-nonsense approach to game and an emphasis on working hard and getting out your comfort zone to get the results you want. Having said that, you can fall into the keyboard jockey/mental masturbation stuff here just as you can on a Mystery Method forum or whatever.

I think about 90% of what Roosh writes on the blog and in Bang are spot-on, and if you’re a hopeless newbie his shit is definitely worth reading. Ultimately however you’ll learn far more by memorising a handful of lines/openers/stories, going out consistently, facing your fears and learning from your mistakes. This rule applies for novices almost as much as advanced guys.

i’ve noticed that a lot of the “best” guys have dropped out of the forum or no longer post frequently anymore.
ie. Giov., Kona, G-Man, and others.

good advice. i deleted a lot of the game sh-t i had archived and will take a break from the blog/forum

I think the purpose of the the plethora of pick-up literature is to motivate and keep you inspired and pumped-up.
Its a mistake to view the literature as informational. You don’t need that much information, as many posters have already pointed out. What it does is keep you from giving up or forgetting about it during the times you can’t go out, or are discouraged, etc. It keeps a constant low-level motivation going, by reminding you how entertaining the whole process can be, that you’re not alone, etc.

Couldn’t agree more.

For me game worked, because I myself have always known by intuition that it is the right way, I was just socially programmed and pressured to act in the politically correct (naturally wrong)way.

All the game literature I have been reading just gave me validation to my inner, personal thoughts, gave me a proof that I am not crazy or alone in my thinking, it gave me “social proof” by Game’s own terms.

I just read that GQ article about Alexander Ovechkin on Roosh’s twitter feed. This quote is by him is hilarious:

“If you compare Russia and America,” he explains sagely, “they are two different worlds. People, cars, clothes. Girls’ figures. Especially girls’ figures. Why do you think that is, that when an American goes to Russia for a week, he stays for two extra weeks? Girls! And when a Russian goes to America for a week, he leaves in five days. I’m serious! There’s a statistic! Ask any American about Russia. You know what they’ll say.”
