Rite of Passage; a coaching review
Historically in many cultures there are, in various forms, masculine coming of age rituals and rites of passage. These are typically designed to figuratively or sometimes literally rip a boy from the comfort of his mother and throw him into some form of trial. The trial is intended to put the boy through some suffering, so much suffering in fact that the burden of the suffering is too much to bear and the boy is forced to let go. Let go of the fear, let go of the doubt, give up hope for the comfort that he once knew, thus becoming a man. So many of us men in modern society are lacking such an experience, having been comforted our whole lives and never knowing what it really means to face fear, anxiety, doubt. We move through life without having faith in ourselves, always staying protected by keeping physical and mental safety nets in place; don't venture outside what's normal, known, safe, don't try something new, don't quit the job you hate, don't leave the girl who is clearly the wrong one. The mind is a powerful machine, one of its prime directives is homeostasis. The mind does not want change. It will create false beliefs which will help support and rationalize whatever the current model of behaviour may be, there will never be a short supply of reasons not to take a chance.
awesome Man, sounds like you really absorbed alot from mr m. btw congrats on your lay. i like this part :

Thank you man, this is one of my favorite reviews.
I think what you're referring to was this second to last week, where stuff came to a head and we just needed to make some changes. Overall though you have to realize, and hopefully I made it clear, that on some levels I just felt like I was talking to myself. So out of respect I held nothing back. And that's really just where our training stemmed from.
Having epiphanies like that are why I'm addicted to self-development.
Nothing but gratitude over here
Cool, awesome stuff. Just sent you your drills for the week
And girls. There are also lots of girls over here
Shit. I'm biking over. Bringing my vader mask
Good, you can help me turn them to the dark side
Yo! Just finished an 8 week round of coaching. To sum things up, I started out with severe social anxiety that was stopping me from going out and actually having much fun. I'd go out but i'd be too much in my head to enjoy myself and get anything done. I had a bisexual girlfriend who was down for threesomes, which we'd manage to pull maybe a couple of times a year with better than average to somewhat hot girls. Over the course of the past couple of weeks I've had blow-jobs from and fucked several girls. There are two girls in particular who are girlfriends, fully hot, have both fucked me, know about each other and my girl and we're all still friends and everyone's cool with it. One of these girls is becoming more and more a part of my relationship with my girl. I was at a dinner party the other night where there were a total of four girls that I've fucked in the last 8 days. Jon has not only armed me with the tools to beat the anxiety, meet more girls and make a good impression, but also helped me to become comfortable with carrying the mindset of being 'that guy'. Eg. That guy who spend the other day hanging out with two girls that he alternately fucked over several days, neither of whom was his girlfriend, who was able to make everyone comfortable with it.
I couldn't have pulled this off without having a guy like Jon to bounce ideas off of and receive creative feedback. This is a program of immeasurable value.
