Motivational Video ! I am honored to have all of you interested in both this journal and my path. It brings me joy to see that I am able to have some positive influence in your personal journeys. I will try not to make this post terribly lengthy and at the same time respond to each one of your comments. I am happy to see the sparks of conversations between all of you. Beekay148 – I know the path in front of me cannot include exes. It could easily cause a trigger. I am into investments! I will PM you to talk about it I have some good recommendations and you’re right the market is perfect to buy right now esp after the positive G20 convention! I for one cannot work for another person; I have been my own boss for a year now, and it is liberating. Nofap has helped me move into this and I hope that it sustains me and excels me to greatness. Including my own business and more just like you. Scorpion2 – I’ve read your journal and I love the similarity between our stories. Thank you for posting a link to it on this page. Having gone in and out of it you’ve experienced the highs and lows that come out of it. It is a strange but certainly an exciting phenomenon. How glorious and beautiful the peaks are when you’ve been to the darkest of valleys! Infinitepotentialforyou – The benefits are long and lengthy, I could go in such depth into this subject. I’ve listed off but a few of the ones in my initial post here. The truth is, out of all the benefits I’ve felt there is only one word to describe it all; power. I feel power in nearly all aspects of my life. The power to love, to see and perceive, the power to know that I can do anything I set my mind to and the power to have unwavering motivation that does not go away. Lucid Kazekuro – I cannot describe how much power your words resonate in my heart of gratitude and praise. Both here and on my profile page. I humbly thank you. The wisdom gained from failure is something of great value and everyone no matter small or large have failed at something. When you fall down 7 times you get up 8! There is a fire in your belly you need to reach for and pull out; it has always been there but numbed by addiction. I look forward to seeing more of your posts and journey. Thank you, my friend. Isla171 – Thank you! zakes – The quote but no comment! Haha nice. Kareza – Yes, money will stay and women will probably be more sold on working out issues. There are good women out there, I know it! Unfortunately it is difficult to find. I blame partly social media because women have attention rained on them from random men, exes and/or old friends. They blow as blades of grass in the wind. Questionite – Spiritual growth is like a muscle we need to exercise. One moment you can be on point and feel in touch. Other times you feel glimpses of it. I found with nofap I have unlocked insight, intuition and a connectiveness I never before had. Keep it up!! elevate – I don’t believe I suggested that women aren’t human beings or less than men. The differences between each one of the women that I reference is different in each individual case; yes some immature, some real and some cases I sabotaged it. I am no saint here. And no, sir, it does not depend on my streak, this is real evidence and experiences I have brought to the table which have been tested over and over again even before my knowledge of nofap; please read my journal from 2013 before dismissing and assuming (link on original post). I stumbled on this knowing nothing about nofap women attraction on my own. I apologize about your take-aways and respect your skepticism. The truth is, there is a disconnect with them when I PMO. The way it was explained to me by my ex-gf was that I come off as arrogant, selfish, a badboy and potentially dishonest while on PMO. She advised me that she knows I’m not that way but women are guarded by a man that intimidates them. Their perception of me is much like your comment, skeptical! With the polarity shift from nofap to pmo I go from being familiar to, “I don’t know you.” or, “I’m scared of you.” Nofap allows me to connect with women and they are able to see my true self. Just today I was getting food and a girl was taking my order she asked me if I’d like some of their sauce to go with the meal, I nodded without saying anything. She came back over to me with the to-go bag and their special mojito sauce (amazing btw). I said “Okay, thank you.” Nothing different about the way I said thank you, I wasn’t even smiling. As soon as I said it she busted out in laughter and had a huge smile on her face. We had a little conversation about the day while maintaining eye contact which was quite engaging. Once the brief conversation was over I walked away and realized that there was nothing special about my words. I’ve never had a woman react so happily to a simple thank you. I thought about it on my drive and realized that she had to of felt something deeper, something real. Have you ever been in a room or grocery store and a woman walks by and you feel something different about her? Not necessarily attractive but you notice her more, you look and you start to like a feature on her you don’t usually like and she simply sticks out. Then on the flip side, have you had a very attractive girl that put you off for some reason, in your mind you think she’s maybe skanky or feel that there is something wrong with her, maybe she opened her mouth and said something that made you think less of her. It’s the same thing however women are more receptive to it; they feel, see, hear and think just like we do. We are mostly visual, as men, and as such this ‘feeling’ doesn’t affect us as intensely as does women, in my opinion. I hope that makes sense. A woman cherishes love and connection, they are receptive to energy whereas men give energy and are more visual beings which is why we struggle so much with pornography. It’s built into us. We are completely different.
