Want to reach your potential as a man?

It's essential to stop self-pleasuring.

Let's talk about how to do that..

And why it'll transform your life.


// THREAD //
There’s a progression that you’ll need to go through.

Don't skip any parts or you might miss something important

Step 1 is finding the motivation to change.

Might sound obvious

But it’s critical to actually want to change..

Not just say you want it.

Step 2 is cultivating a strong DESIRE to become great.

To hear a calling from within to become more…

Despite how difficult it is.

It’s not meant to be easy to join the highest levels of men.

Step 3 is re-defining what sex means to you.

No one goes through the process of NoFap/Retention..

Without re-defining what sex means to them.

Simple pleasure isn’t good enough.

Giving in to easy pleasures is not strength.

It’s weakness.

Step 4 is consciously removing temptations.

Everyone has weaknesses.

Even Superman has Kryptonite, and you’re not him.

If you don’t remove the cues that cause temptation

You will get tempted, you will fall off the path.

You're only human.

So remove cues.

Step 5 is belief.

Once you get the first 4 down

You gain belief that you can do this.

That you don’t need that low-value pleasure.

That you can go on longer streaks.

No more being stuck at “x” days once steps 1-4 are done correctly.

Step 6 is willingly suffering.

Taking on responsibility.

While most people are trying to avoid it.

It’s inevitable that on this journey you’ll suffer.

Urges are uncomfortable.

But that suffering is how you prove your strength, dedication, and that you can be 1%.

Step 7 is progressive realization of your destiny.

The massive dedication and determination you developed

To remove porn and get into retention transforms

It spreads into other areas of your life like a fire in a dry forest.

THIS is why mastering your sexual impulses is so valuable.

That level of discipline and dedication will spread to every area of your life

Causing you to excel in a way most people never will.

This is one of the most difficult things a man can do.

If you can find the resolve, dedication, and discipline to do this

Well my friend, you can do just about anything you put your mind to.

Stop giving in to low-value pleasures so easily.

It's time to pursue purpose.

Until next time,
