If you read these words there is a great chance you are familiar with game and the PUA mentality. I’m sure some of you have overused negs and whatever else is out there.
The PUA’s did one great service: shown the world that you can attain what was once thought unattainable.
The PUA’s did one great disservice: cured the symptoms, never cured the cause.
One popular PUA concept is the “peacocking mentality” though I am not sure if it is still practiced on the level it was years ago. I haven’t seen a furry hat in a while.
When I first learned of this concept I was incredulous. I would not be caught wearing a furry hat. I had blue hair in middle school and looked like an idiot. Never again.
However, I began to realize that humans peacock naturally.
When a man walks by a female he subconsciously stands straighter and puffs out his chest. Posturing.
If you want to become a greater peacock. Become an Apex Predator.
Silver-back Gorilla. Lion. Komodo Dragon. Honey Badger.
Study these animals. When they walk there is a level of explosive power that is waiting to be utilized to crush their enemies. They are nimble, not lumbering.
These beasts lazily look around them unconcerned of the other animals. They do not worry. When tested they disembowel their enemies. Carcasses remain as a warning.
Peacocks are not high on the food chain. Their plumage may allow them to sire progeny, but those obtrusive feathers also get them killed.
PUA’s told the fats that all they needed was nail polish and quirky clothing.
I’m telling you all you need is to stalk through the world with an aura of unbridled power.
An apex predator is cool and confident. Always in command. With graceful elegance.
Muscle heads lack this. They may be “threatening,” but they are not apex predators. They lack grace and more importantly functional strength. They wind easily when in a fight.
I’ve always been a big guy and any bouts with others I won due to physical luck. Then I started going to bars and recognized that smaller guys may start picking fights with me. Napoleon defense.
I was not confident in my ability to fight. Began training in Muay Thai.
My natural strength allowed me to lift heavy things, but I could not lift myself up a pull up bar. Calisthenics introduced.
While girls have mentioned that there are times I glide through a room. I want to glide at all times. Yoga and Dancing lessons attended.
There is a reason why prisons are the training grounds for Apex Predators. They are forced to survive by training their bodies and minds against constant threats. They are constantly tested.
We on the outside are blessed with a safe existence, yet we must not allow ourselves to become slothful. Threats are everywhere.
Worry about functional strength. Do not bother your mind with vanity muscles.
Forget the furry hat. Hit the gym.
