To win it all, be ready to lose it all

Been a while fans, I have had a lot going on with my life to where I could barely dedicate much time to putting out content. Now I am really looking to produce more content and even get on track to giving all of you the e-book I have long been speaking about.

Today, I want to talk about a theme in my of high risk and high reward. While it is not always the case, there are times when we do need to approach with this mentality.

You are on a date and it is probably one of the most beautiful women you have been on a date with. You are talking and seem excited but for some reason, the excitement is not there from her end. It seems like you are the one who is putting more in there and she is the one who is just playing hard to get.

So, like most guys, you decide to let it continue. You go home and wonder, holding out for small hope, that she gives you that next date or a chance. The thought eats away at you, to a great degree, and you drive yourself a bit nervous and insane wondering what can be going on. A part of you wants to believe that she is just playing hard to get because she wants you to chase and the interest is there, maybe it is.

But….fortune favors the bold.

If you had called out the elephant in the room in the first date and simply said something along the lines of:

Looks it seems like you are not really feeling it and I am the one doing all of the talking. Maybe you don’t see anything in whatever it is we have going on. What do you think?

If she is honest and tells you what you don’t want to hear, you saved yourself weeks or even months of heartache. On the other hand, what can happen is that she tells you that there is interest and that is just how she is, in which case you won yourself more stress.

All because you were willing to live with the fact that then and there, you can lose her. Maybe you already lost her before you even said a word but at least you brought yourself a lot of stress relief for after the date. It is always good to lose fast if you are going to lose.
