Live Full

By vercetti on May 4, 2011

In the aftermath of Project Rockstar, it’s hard not to notice the change that has occurred in the Rockstars as well as me. I feel the greatest shift is in what I now demand from my life. I’ve been consciously involved in “Personal development” for the past 6yrs and as I look back it’s extremely easy to see the change and progress that I’ve made. However, looking at the Rockstars’ progression and what they’ve achieved in such a short time, the bar has been raised!

I look around London and I see one of the greatest cities in the world, I see an eclectic mix of cultures and people. The manifestation of ideas and big dreams on every street I walk down. Theatres, museums, Galleries, Bridges, Cathedrals, award winning builds, the London Eye…But I look at the people and I see Zombies. Deflated souls with broken or stolen dreams, living quiet lives of desperation. So many are living for the weekend when they can drown their sorrows in pints of lager in the Public House. People are living below their full capacity, blending into the crowd

For the longest time I was hesitant to be involved in this “seduction community”, hesitant to really embrace it and state my allegiance, I guess I was in denial about having to learn how to become highly effective with women. Then I realised the value of such a community and what it really stands for ‘Men labouring to become their best selves, demanding more from life’, it’s beautiful! I’ve met some of the most positive, forward moving individuals in this community, striving forward to improve their lives and the lives of others.

My eyes have been opened and stretched to some of the possibilities available to those who take life head on. At the end of the Project Rockstar video you’ll hear me say “it’s not about the women, it’s about us” and I truly believe that magnificent statement B). This is about what I call “Expansion”. The Expansion of ourselves. The setting of higher standards for one’s self, the continual ‘raising of the bar’ and of one’s demands from life.

The Rockstars went through some tough changes, and yeah they were put in an environment conducive to massive change, but anyone can do it! Not to take anything from the Rockstars they are all phenomenal lads; it’s just that the demands most of us make from life are so low. Dream big dreams and take Massive Action! One way to do this is to form a mastermind group of your most trusted and respected friends, share your goals and your dreams – your intended character developments. Make it known what you refuse to stand for in your life, from now on.

I’m reminded of one of my favourite poems

I bargained with life for a penny
And life would pay no more
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store
For life is just an employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.

Live Full or Fuck of and Die! This Holiday which we call life is fleeting and yet most of us spend it working jobs that we can’t stand, with people that make our stomachs turn and living below our full potential. Living under the Radar, timid, trying not be noticed, trying to fit in. Fuck that! Yuck! We play it safe, striving for security when in life there is no security…we can’t get out of life alive – so security from what? How many days have slipped through practically unnoticed, Unclaimed, with nothing memorable to write in a journal, or document in detail. How many times has an opportunity been missed to “Be the Hero in my story”? That post is coming! Bo)

I remember in the early days of my learning game, when I’d let AA get the better of me, and go home feeling defeated. It was the worst feeling in the world because I felt like I was denying myself something. I was denying myself the opportunity to Expand and express who I am as a human being.

That is a fucking sin. I still get AA (Yes, The V Man does still get it, but you’ll never see it baby, my sub-communications are way too tight LOL!) but now I think “fuck her, it’s not even about her, it’s about me expressing myself. It’s about me becoming more than just some average frustrate punk wishing and hoping and never actually stepping up to life and participating”. Fuck her, do you! Demand more of yourself. Live full or fuck off and die! It’s that real!
That immobility is the worst feeling in the world, that frustration; avoid it at all costs. Outside of trying to pick up the girl, make it your mission to live full, to do the things that you want to do in your life. It’s your right!

Here’s something that really resonated with me when I heard it read.

Playing it small – Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous ?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to Make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.



So the challenge is for us to seek full expression, to find ways in which we can stretch our concepts of reality so that when our time comes when we lie on our backs starring at the sky, that last breath is a content, whole hearted “I came, I saw, I conquered life!”.
