We constantly preach that if you ever want to do something great, you have to learn to take risks. This can be hard for many guys because when you take risks, you’ll be ridiculed, laughed at, and even mocked for what you’re trying to pursue. However, we know that it is through these risks that you’ll be able to achieve the highest reward.
So, how do you get through the haters, the chodes, the people who put you down? It’s called not giving a shit or for an acronym sake: DGAF (Don’t Give a Fuck)
Remember, the more you GAF, the more your mind gets distracted and goes crazy…
It’s easier said than done, so we’ll give a few suggestions on how to DGAF productively so you can start focusing on what matters the most: taking risks to accomplish your goals.
Go up to the first cute girl you see and start a conversation: “Hi, you’re cute, let’s talk.” And, don’t give yourself a bullshit excuse to not go up because you can’t find a “cute girl.” If you’re in a place that is desolate, then the first girl you see you should start talking to her. JUST DO IT.
Remember, those who hesitate, masturbate…
If you’re made fun of or rejected or pushed away, just keep trying. This will help you build up a social callous when your risky moves are turned down. It’s okay because if you keep going, you’ll get used to the negative and in the end you’ll be a better person for it.
Approach complete strangers and then out of nowhere start pushing yourself to do awkward things. Yes, I repeat, purposefully make the situation awkward. You’re like how do I do that? Sit on the floor randomly, stop mid-sentence during a conversation and stay silent, make a troll like joke…
This exercise will help you understand that “awkward” situations don’t really mean anything. In fact, there are no awkward situations, it’s just your own state of mind.
Again, this exercise doesn’t work unless you JUST DO IT.
The next time you go out, wear an outfit you’ve never worn before. This means if you usually wear a collar shirt and shorts, wear a costume. I’m being serious, put yourself in a position where people might stare at you and judge you from a distance. This is a great thing! By putting yourself in this position and going through with it, you will end up creating a shield from any haters who come your way.
What I’m Not Saying
I’m not saying to purposefully go out there and cause unintentional havoc that can get you arrested. I’m merely saying to have some balls and take risks that can benefit your life: approaching hot girls, tackling a new hobby or skill, building up a social callous, etc., And, understanding that anything or anybody who gets in your way of pursuing these risks should be pushed aside in your brain… simply don’t give a shit about them.
A Few Things To End On
Remember, we do not believe in “baby steps.” Baby steps slows down your progress and it can even bring you down to a point where you don’t improve or worst, give up. The point I’m trying to make is you have to just start BIG, over-exaggerate, embarrass yourself, and get messy, because it is from these actions that you’ll learn the most and know either to take it up a notch or to bring it down.
