Success with women is a skill. Like any other skill, it takes practice, dedication, and time to master. However, there are some things that can speed up the process of getting good. One of them is the ability to create motivational boosts, and to harness their power in your own development.
Your first encounter with the community is your first motivational boost. This could be from reading Magic Bullets, finding The Attraction Forums, or signing up for the Love Systems' Insider. You realize that this is a part of your life you want to improve, so you read up on techniques and try them out in the field. Your actions get reactions.
If they are good, you gain positive momentum, something that will make you take further actions and develop your game further.
If they are negative, you gain negative momentum. This can drag you down and hurt your game, or it can motivate you to do better.
During your entire pick-up career you will experience both negative and positive momentum - techniques and actions that do and don't work - and how you handle these momentums is the deciding factor for whether you will get good or not.
All of the Love Systems instructors know how to maximize positive momentum and how to draw invaluable experience out of its negative counterpart - that's what has made and continues to make us successful in field.
There is one type of person who never gets good in any skill, he who quits as soon as he experiences negative momentum. Think of a guy trying to master an instrument, for example the guitar. He would try a C-chord for the first time, strum it, and when it comes out blurry and unclear the first time, put the guitar away and say "this is never going to work." An extreme example perhaps, but switch "master an instrument" with "master pick-up" and "learn the C-chord" with "open correctly" and you can easily see that this is applicable to our case. Needless to say, you don't want to belong to that category.
On the other hand, the people that get good know how to draw experience out of negative momentum, and to use positive momentum to its fullest capacity. But how do they do that?
One thing that successful people do is create ways for themselves to get motivational boosts. These boosts are what makes you want to go out and continue building your skill even if you are in negative momentum.
Motivational boosts can be both large and small, and they are both good to have. That being said, big motivational boosts are much more powerful than the smaller ones. In fact, the biggest motivational boost I got was from when I was a student taking my Love Systems live workshop.
That boost was so huge that even if I didn't devote all the time and effort to becoming an instructor and thus creating new motivational boosts for myself, that very workshop would single-handedly have motivated me to go out and approach women! If you haven't already signed up for a live workshop, my best advice is to do so. My life wouldn't have been the same if I hadn't taken one.
There are other motivational boosts that help you develop more quickly, like finding a good "wingman" or joining the local lair. Another absolutely awesome motivational boost is getting a subscription to the interview series; the value and motivation to go out and try that stuff out is priceless.
All in all, it's important to create those motivational boosts for yourself. See them as the fuel that drives your forward development. Used correctly, they will greatly help you in your growth to attract and seduce beautiful women. Here's a rundown of some motivational boosts that can help you take your game to the next level:
