Guest Manifesto: I Came, I Saw, I Conquered

There’s a famous latin phrase, Caeser pontem fecit, that translates into “Caesar built a bridge”. Of course, Julius Caesar himself did not build a single bridge. But he did have the vision to do so. This is important because his visionary building ultimately led the Romans to unquestioned military supremacy. We’re talking complete and utter dominance across Europe (not unlike your humble author). Unsurprisingly, Caesar was a leader with superior mental aptitude and unparalleled strategic skills. And in the end that’s what counts most, because it is all a mind game. Inner game and getting your mind right are key.

The alpha animal uses his mind to win the game, not just brute force or physical superiority. The lion in the savannah never has a chance if not for his ability to outsmart the prey by getting close. Otherwise, his superior strength is of little use. Same goes for Game. Humans are obviously the best example of mind over physical superiority. The alpha animal in the human world is rarely the strongest, but is almost always the wisest or most cunning.

“Let your greatest cunning lie in covering up what looks like cunning”- Baltasar Gracián (Brazilian Girls, Los Angeles and Custom Suits)

What is cunning? Cunning is taking vampire naps and re-upping while everyone else is paying up–and then coming in for the kill. Cunning is skipping the treadmills of the “corporate” gym (which is just a place of isolation, anyway) and Entering the Dragon round for round. I mean, “When I look at people on treadmills I wonder how alpha lions, the strongest, expend the least amount of energy, sleeping twenty hours a day; others hunt for them.”

Which brings up an important point: trying too hard. Most guys are much too unnatural and over studied. You have to let it flow. Be natural. Unscripted. Smooth as silk. Girls pick up on G’s because they feel the higher value a.k.a. being Sharp, Urban, and International.

But don’t get too caught up in the details. The overall the truth about being an alpha male is simple: if you try to be an alpha male, you will never be one.

Luckily, some of us just Grew Up Not Giving a F*ck. It’s not complicated. “When you don’t give a f*ck everything starts happening and girls come to you. When you don’t give a f*ck you close hard. My brothers, do whatever you can to not give a f*ck.” Real G’s aren’t needy. They stand on their own, going for Dolo.

Simply put, the men who get along best with women are those who can get along best without them. It’s a well documented, almost zen like phenomenon; the less you need them the more desirable you become. Now that’s cunning.

    Outstanding post Michael! I am a HUGE proponent of inner game and your post hit the nail right on the head. Cats never seem to recognize that its getting your brain to work for you with all its might that is key in being successful. Its what the Masters of the world do. You have to throw aside doubt and fear and move forward relentlessly, as you say, not giving a fuck. Its how Alpha’s always win.

    Again, great post!

    My fav post of the year so far. This was some samurai sword shit!!!

    If they can’t feel this one, they might not be built for the Game

    “Most guys are much too unnatural and over studied”

    Over studied! Thats a great way to put it.

    Learning thru personal experience is way better then “study”. Get out there and do it. Don’t be afraid to take your lumps. You will be a better man for it.

    This is a great vibe right here G
