Guys lack self-confidence and get nervous around with girls because of ONE thing…
They’re attached to the outcome!
Guys have outcomes in mind when they go out to meet girls.
Outcome #1. Wanting to find a girlfriend. Maybe you feel lonely or you feel incomplete and you want a girlfriend to fill up something that feels like it’s missing in your life.
Outcome #2. Looking for a specific type of girl. Maybe you have in mind very specifically a blonde with a pretty face. Some guys are dead-on obsessed about Asian girls. Or maybe in your mind you’re after “9s and 10s”. Or you want a girl that looks like a particular celebrity or porn star, whatever it is.
Outcome #3. You want sex. You want to get laid.
But there’s many more subtler outcomes than those, those are just some of the obvious ones. Even more common outcomes are,
Outcome #4. Wanting to be liked by girls. You see a girl on the street and she’s cute and your overwhelming feeling is that you want her to like you, you want to get her approval from her.
Outcome #5. Wanting to impress girls. Your outcome is that you want to show girls that you’re the coolest most attractive hot guy on the planet with all of your attraction routines and methods and you want like 100% good reactions from women.
Outcome #6. Wanting to become a master “PUA”. You want to be the greatest PUA that ever lived. You want every girl you talk to be entranced by your skills and you want other guys to want to be you.
Outcome #7. Wanting to impress your friends. You’ve got a bunch of friends and you want to show them how great you are with girls. You’ve got something to prove to them.
Outcome #8. You’ve got a routine that you want to use and your outcome is to WOW the girls with it. Or you’ve got a stack of routines that you’ve memorized and you want to pull out you’re “A Game” on the girls.
Outcome #9. You’ve set a goal for yourself that “have to approach and pickup” or “I have to pickup correctly” or “I have to do this right” or “I have to execute this perfectly”.
Why Seeking Outcomes Destroys Your Self-Confidence
So these are all OUTCOMES or goals.
And the problem with ANY of these outcomes is that it’s absolutely devastating to your self-confidence.
Anytime you have an outcome or goal, as soon as you see the girl in the flesh in front of you, a number of things always happen.
Desiring outcomes makes you needy for that outcome to happen.
It makes you grasping.
It makes you desiring
It makes you approval seeking.
You see happiness coming from getting the girl’s approval you.
How Your Confidence Takes A Dive
You see the pretty girl there in front of you in the flesh and blood. First thing that’s going to happen when you’re seeking outcomes is…
You freeze up. You’ve got approach anxiety. And you just stand there and do nothing and let the opportunity pass you by.
Because you have this outcome where you “have” to achieve this or you “must” achieve that. And you’ve got performance pressure to make the girl like you and get her approval. So you just freeze up.
Seeking outcomes put you inside your head and you start over-thinking.
For instance, you want to have “the right thing to say” to impress her and to make her like you. So you freeze up.
You want a girlfriend, so now you place all of your happiness in the girl and in her approval, and you get scared. Your confidence just melts.
Outcomes Sabotage Your Game
Let’s say you say to yourself “fuck it” and you go up to the girl anyway.
Well your problems are just beginning!
Because you’re grasping for an outcome, *like you want to impress her or you want her to like you or approve of you), it makes you nervous and supplicating. It makes your actions timid and conservative and kiss-ass.
So you approach, but your outcome-seeking causes you to…
Not touch the girl. Not physically escalate.
Your outcome-seeking causes you to put on a false smile and agree with everything the girl says.
It causes you to hide your true intentions that you like the girl, and you just have asexual small talk with her instead.
It causes you to pull out a bunch of routines, instead of just being more natural and trusting in yourself.
You become overly helpful, overly accommodating, overly entertaining, and nervous and hyper instead of just being chill, relaxed, and calm and sexy.
And the girl doesn’t feel attraction from you. Instead, you come across as the “nice guy” or the creeper that’s so overly concerned about getting a good reaction and kissing her ass.
And the girl can LIKE you for approaching, but she doesn’t get that wet-between-the-legs hard attraction from you. She’s not going to chase you. It gets you liked, but it doesn’t get you LAID.
And that all stems from desiring outcomes to get sex or to be liked.
So really the secret of success with women, getting over approach anxiety, having self-confidence, doing physical escalation, coming across as more natural… all come down to dropping outcomes and become FREE from outcomes.
Because once you’re free from the outcome, you can suddenly approach women without hesitation. You can physically escalate. You can speak naturally. You can show your intent. And you become massively attractive to women.
Now, being free from the outcome encompasses a number of different ideas or concepts, that really all mean the same thing.
Confidence Is Non-Thinking
Freedom from outcome is not thinking. Not being inside your head.
With freedom from outcome, you see the girl and you just take action without any thought to it. You just act to express yourself and you don’t give a fuck about the outcome. You’re not inside you’re head, at all. You’re not thinking. And your mind is free, and chill, and it’s a very Zen state in a way.
Compare that to grasping for an outcome. Like you want the girl to like you. Or you’re worried about what the people around you will think. Well, then you go inside your head. You begin thinking, scheming, manipulating, trying to control a situation to go in some particular direction.
Confidence is “Not Trying”
When you’re free from the outcome, you “stop trying”.
Yes, your sexual fury and your sexual intent drives you to take action. You see the girl there, you’re horny for the girl, so you act on your raw, animalistic, sexual intention.
But although you’re taking action, you’re “not trying”. Meaning, you’re not scheming, manipulating, grasping, or caring how the outcome turns out. All you’re doing is acting on animal drive.
Because “trying” is wanting an outcome, trying to control the situation to a particular direction, going inside your head to scheme.
“Not trying” you take action, open the girl, and physically escalate. But you’re not grasping for some outcome. You’re just acting in the moment, outside of your head. Again, a very Zen way of doing taking action, almost like a little child would act.
Confidence is “Not Giving A Fuck”
Freedom from outcome means that you don’t give a hoot about results, or what happens with the girl, positive or negative.
You’re not thinking, you’re not being inside your head, you’re not trying, you’re not grasping. You just take action.
And because you don’t give a fuck, you’re not going inside your head at all, you don’t have approach anxiety and you don’t hesitate.
You just act, damn the consequences. In fact, the idea of consequences doesn’t even enter your mind in the first place. You truly don’t care.
Confidence is “Being, Not Trying”
Freedom from outcome and the confidence that comes with it is just “being” instead of “trying”.
“Being” means you just fully accept your personal flaws and foibles, as in you don’t think about them as factors.
Instead, you think of your flaws as features that make you real and authentic. Like maybe you don’t have the best things to say, or you’re a boring conversationalist, or you’re balding… but those are features.
And you’re not trying to be something more, you’re already there. Because trying to be something more than yourself is grasping for an outcome. And freedom from outcomes means, you’re not trying, you’re not self-improving, you’re not trying to be something more than you are.
Confidence Means Having Certainty In Your Actions
Freedom From Outcome means certainty in your actions. Since you truly don’t care about the outcome, positive or negative, you take actions with certainty.
Like when you want to tie your shoelaces, you just bend over and do it without hesitation and tie with certainty. Because you’re not concerned about the outcome.
Certainty in your actions applies to approaching women. You approach without hesitation and with certainty. You get physical without hesitation and with certainty.
You want to approach, boom you do it, no thinking, no trying, very chill. You want to take her hand, boom you do it. And that certainty comes from being detached from positive or negative outcomes.
Confidence Means Having Freedom From The Mind
Freedom from outcome leads to having freedom from the mind. The mind does not enter the picture at all. No thought, no thinking. And that freedom comes from being detached from both positive and negative outcomes.
The freedom from caring or thinking about negative outcomes, but also freedom from caring or thinking about positive outcomes. You don’t care about getting good responses. You’re not response-seeking.
So you can think of freedom from outcome, and thus having self-confidence, as no thinking, as being outside of your head, as being and not trying, as certainty in your actions, as freedom from the mind, as “being in the moment”, as not caring, as not giving a fuck what happens, as being free from positive responses as well as negative ones, as being free from response-seeking… they all mean dropping your attachments from the outcome.
Confidence Is Like A Dream State
Think of having confidence as a kind of like a dream-state in way. When you’re completely outside your head, there’s no past, no future, only that now moment.
And because there’s no future, there’s no future consequences.
There’s no “bad results” or “good results”, so no reason not to go for what you want. And it makes “difficult things” like approaching the girl, very simple. Approaching a girl simply becomes an execution of a very simple action of putting one foot in front of another toward the girl.
So when you see a girl you like, you think to yourself, “Hmm, she’s tasty.” And you go right up to her and you say hello! Very calm, very chill, completely outside your head and in the moment. Approach anxiety gone. Hesitation gone. And you come across as very chill and natural. Because you’re not grasping for any kind of result, you’re not attached to any outcome, positive or negative, whatsoever.
You tell the girl that she’s beautiful and you want to take her out, without hesitation, without going inside your head, without giving a fuck, with complete certainty in your actions, because you’re not attached to any outcome good or bad.
Compare that to your typical guy attached to an outcomes, any outcome.
Because he’s so wrapped up in future outcomes, he lacks self-confidence. He hesitates every step of the way. He has approach anxiety. He thinks twice about physically escalate. He hesitates to ask for the number.
He uses a supplicating, trying-for-rapport voice. He comes across as unsure and shy. He’s scared to express himself and wants to use routines instead. He doesn’t want to be noticed. He doesn’t want to take up space. He’s worried about what he’s wearing or how he’s looking. He’s worried about a million things like if they girl will like him, if someone will see him talk to the girl, and on and on and on.
So freedom from the outcome – it’s essential to your success with girls and critical to having core confidence.
What confidence with girls feels like
Guys have a muddy idea of what confidence actually FEELS like.
When you’re confidence, you feel RELAXED. You feel normal.
You feel CHILL.
It’s like if you’re going to tie your shoelaces, you have freedom from outcome in that action. You feel certainty, normalness, and being relaxes about it.
Whereas most guys feel tense around women. They feel hyper. They feel anxious. They feel stressed. And that’s why guys don’t stay in the game. It makes them feel tired. Because they are grasping for positive outcomes, and doing everything they can to avoid negative ones.
But when you have freedom from outcome, that’s a heavenly feeling of just feeling completely relaxed and normal – in other words, supremely self-confident.
It’s that relaxed state that allows you to have fun with women. Being chill and calm is like the jumping off board for having fun, for self-amusing yourself. And it’s that chill, relaxed state that is what you’re after. It’s what you have when people look at you and see it as “confidence”. But what confidence really is, is just being free from attachments to the outcome.
So you feel calm, peaceful, centered, confident, happy. Where you’re immune from anxiety, immune from hesitation, and immune from fear.
When you can see a group of five girls at the bar, you feel relaxed, chill, and calm. You go up to them, and feeling relaxed, chill, and calm, and tell the girl you like that she’s cute. And her friends try to blow you out, but you’re still feeling relaxed, chill and calm. Because you’re free from the outcome, positive or negative.
And it’s calm, relaxing and peaceful because you’re outside of your head. You’re not thinking. Like as if you were listening to classical musical while looking out over a lake. Go listen to some classical music, while looking out over a lake with some birds chirping in the trees and that’s what Freedom From Outcome feels like.
Confidence is NOT Feeling Hyper!
And that calm, centered, chill, relaxed, happy state is what you want over feeling hyper or fireworks.
Confidence is not something exciting, or flashy, or extravagant. Instead, the coolest, most attractive guys have this chill vibe about themselves. Chill in the face of even being surrounded by gorgeous girls or high pressure social situations, because they’re free from the outcomes.
For example, a guy like George Clooney comes across as sexy because he can get on stage at an awards ceremony in front of thousands of people, and still remain cool and calm and chill and deliver a joke. That freedom from the outcome is what makes him attractive. He doesn’t get super positive, hyper, jumpy, flashy or excited.
So you don’t want to have to pump yourself up to a ridiculous state to overcome outcome attachments. Instead, you want to eliminate your outcome attachments in the first place so that you can just approach being normal, cool, and chill.
And that centered chillness and relaxedness is much more sustainable over a period of a few hours, than being over-the-top pumped up and excited. You can’t remain super excited for more than an hour or two without becoming totally exhausted.
But if you’re chilled and centered, you can go to a club for instance, and be there for hours and hours. And it’s like recharging your batteries, not draining you, because you feel so chill even in the face of social pressure.
And here’s why being hyper, extreme, pumped-up has its limitations: You’re still reaction seeking. You’re pumped up because you’re grasping, because you’re too concerned about the outcome. So you come across as the entertainer man who’s trying too hard. And you can also have a state crash when you don’t get the positive response you want to your hyperness.
Pumping yourself up to an extreme state is fine. The adrenaline rush you get can make you approach. You can get laid that way. It can be useful sometimes in loud, high-energy club situations. But it’s not what you’re shooting for ideally, it’s not the best state to have.
Yes, girls DO want a positive, confident guy. But being a positive guy, is not the same as a slap-happy, super-state pumped up guy. The important thing is to feel good, to feel centered, to feel relaxed, and not necessarily “pumped” into “incredible state”.
Through state-transference, the girl is going to feel relaxed and positive around you if you’re relaxed and positive and centered, and free from outcome. It’s all well and good to be pumped up and excited happy, but that kind of happiness is a fleeting thing, it’s hard to hold onto, it’s exhausting to maintain, and NOT necessary to getting the girl.
Girls are not necessarily looking for a happy feeling from guys, they’re just looking to you to see if you feel good and relaxed in the face of social pressure.
And if you draw your state from within with freedom from outcome (thus, self-confidence), it tells the girl that you’re entitled, that you have purpose and direction in your life, that you’re high value, that you’re a cool guy, that you’re a positive guy, that you have opportunities, and that you’re a man of action.
That’s all you need. That chill, centered, relaxed state (self-confidence) that comes from having freedom from any outcomes.
