You Must Upgrade Your Life – Standards

I know I have written multiple articles about raising and sticking to a higher standard, but I really can’t stress enough how important your standards are to your success with women and every other aspect of your life.

You need to put checks and balances on every aspect of your life.

Over the holiday season I began putting on a few extra pounds because I lowered the standard of what I was willing to place in my body, not to mention how much of it. By neglecting a standard I once held for what I would eat and drink the state of my physical appeal wasn’t as high as it once was.

The moment I became aware of it and made the DECISION to work myself back to my original weight the pounds began to come off. The standard for what you are willing to accept is going to be a direct reflection of what begins to surround you.

Women have to be attracted to me; they just do, that’s my standard for myself and simply won’t accept anything less. I won’t allow God, Mother nature, the universe etc. to hand me anything less this full blown positive attention from women. It’s in complete conflict with my reality; its simply not possible. I may sound like a mad man to some ” You can’t force someone to be attracted you to” and you’re right. I can’t, but because of my mind frame, the energy I emit into the world around me is undeniable.

The way I walk, the way I talk, the way I write, the way I smile, sip my water, drive my car, etc. all comes from the frame of someone who will be desired. Personally I think if I’m not number one I’m in the top three greatest looking Men to ever walk the face of the earth.

Sure you may disagree, but it is a pleasant way of thinking and so it is the way that I choose to live my life. And besides, who are you to tell me I’m wrong? You would certainly have to be better looking to do so.. See where I’m going with this?

One thing you must understand about women is, they’re only in support of what it is that you truly believe at your core. If you truly and deeply believe you are the sexiest man on the planet and they test your sense of self assurance(they will) and your results are in agreement with your frame, who are they to tell you any different? Note: This level of confidence should apply to every single area of your life and not just you’re looks.

Its time to raise the standards of everything we are willing to accept and project; is your current girlfriend all that you want a woman to be in your life? Are your friends pushing you, supporting you, and criticizing you when necessary in damn near every aspect of your life? Is your partner? If not, it may time to recognize your worth and begin searching elsewhere.

Find Inspiration

I discovered a new artist a couple weeks ago by the name of Marian Mereba; she isn’t very popular yet but as soon as I began listening to some of her music I realized that there was something uniquely unusual about her. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it but I could’t stop listening. Just yesterday(Valentines Day) she released her EP as I began listening, one particular song caught my attention. ” Go To London ” the lyrics are as follows;

“Can’t believe how fast time flew,
Taking with it, both me and you,
accidentally fell like fools ,
now its aching to break from you,
but I say go to london,
you won’t write and I won’t call you often.

Take the best of me,
I’ll keep the rest of me.

Go to London,
you won’t write and I won’t call you often.
Go to london,
If you don’t try, you will always be wondering.

About london.
About London.

So take the best of me,
I’ll keep the rest of me.

And go to London.

Darling can’t you see,
theres more to you than loving me.

So go to london.
You won’t write and I won’t call you often,
go to London..”

The depth of this song really got me thinking about my current life and my past relationships. Have I ever been with a woman that was willing push me to pursue my dreams and passions even at the expense of our relationship? A woman that would throw away everything we have built and worked on as a unit just to see me successful. I can’t say I have but because of the inspiration I found in the song; I now refuse to accept anything less than this within any future relationship.

We are often told to think big although most of us are already thinking as big as our mind our allowing to. A child in a third world country can’t possibly dream or think of being the number #1 stock broker in the United States because they haven’t seen one or heard of one. I never thought or dreamed of the kind of relationship spoke about in this song for the very same reason and now that I have, my standards have officially risen.

You Can Eat Your Cake Too

There is a popular expression that goes; ” You can’t have your cake and eat it too” meaning we don’t live in the perfect world so you can’t possibly get everything you want. I think that’s bullshit; whats the point of getting the cake if you can’t eat it? Phrases as such only hinder people from wanting to pursue their dreams. I get paid to take men out, talk to women, and party ; I’m attractive, funny and intelligent. I can honestly say I’m eating my cake; its time you begin eating yours.

I want to challenge every WOTP Reader out there to sit down with a pen and paper and evaluate every important area of their lives. Make a list of your standards and boundaries for each area and next to them write what your standards and boundaries could be. Even if at first it seems impossible. Anyone who has ever made major changes in the world was once called crazy by many before proving them wrong.
When you analyze your relationship; push your current partner to live up to your new standards; if they are incapable or not giving the effort, I believe its time to find someone who will.

Think bigger, dream bigger, and raise your standards every time you find the inspiration to do so. And you will granted with a happiness you never thought possible. Have your cake and eat it.

You Don’t Have It Because You Don’t Deserve It

 I’ve began to notice that everyone has a poverty like mentality when it comes to a particular area of their lives. There are poor men and women everywhere that are victims of thoughts that keep them enslaved to their conditions. Think poverty, talk poverty, and you will manifest poverty in your actions. Think wealth/abundance, talk wealth, and you will manifest actions that’ll lead to wealth. For many this happens unconsciously because they were raised by poor/wealthy families that have lead them into the thinking pattern they have today. So they go on producing and accepting having or not having.

So what poor mentality am I talking about ?

If love/sex were coins, many of you men would be homeless, strung out on the floor, shaking your coffee cups, and begging for change. It’s pitiful honestly; I see the tweets, the statuses, facebook comments etc. I almost want to shake some of you guys up so y’all can come to your senses. We’re idolizing and worshiping our women from a point of inferiority. I have no problem putting a woman on a pedastol, but I must first secure my position on my own pedastol. This isn’t fan telling a rockstar how amazing they are. This is a rockstar telling another rockstar that they like them too. Any coincidence that most celebrities date other people in their industry? They’re idolized by almost everyone else.But the worse part about the analogy I started this paragraph off with is most men don’t even realize that that’s how they are seen by every woman they idolize.

Would you date a homeless woman who sits around begging all day? No. There is nothing she could do to get you to do so. She could call you handsome and compliment you all day long but it just wouldn’t happen. Mainly because she hasn’t taken care of herself yet, so how could she possibly have anything to offer you? In terms of self wealth and value, a lot of our men have not taken care of themselves. Women are going after each other now. They’re “independent”, they don’t need us, because we aren’t offering anything.

If you guys want to get up off the floor and dust yourselves off its time to know what you deserve. Anyone that has anything, felt or feels like they deserve what they have. Even a spoiled brat kid with a million toys that wants more feels like he’s deserving of another one. So when he approaches his parents for a new one, he communicates to them from a deserving position. This is the same position you must come from when you approach, speak, or comment on women.

Everything you do must say ” I deserve you.. and I came to find out if you deserve me “

You can even turn this into a practice on your daily travels. Every time you see a woman you find attractive whether on Facebook or in person say to yourself ” I deserve you.. “. This is how you will begin to train your thoughts to feel worthy when you communicate with a woman you find attractive. You can even apply this same mentality to that new Porsche you have your eyes on. When you see that new car, that house or job you want tell yourself ” I deserve you”. After enough repetition you will be one step closer to attracting the things you deserve.

I was always taught that I can have anything that I truly feel I deserve. It’s more than just saying it, it’s believing it, but saying it is where it starts. Our thoughts become our words, our words become our actions, our actions become our habbits, our habbits become our character, and our character becomes our destiny. Let’s stop begging and start attractive the things we believe we deserve.

Peace & Love

Become King Of The Seduction Jungle

From the Discovery channel to many peoples favorite Disney film, we’ve all heard it before; lions are the “king of the jungle”.

Now I’m no zoologist but as we all know, lions eat, sh!t, and sleep all day long and barely have to lift a finger. Male lions have on average four to five Lioness(Female Lions) at their disposal that both bring them food, has sex with them, and looks after the children while the lion relaxes in front of the Sahara sun licking his fur. But the best part is, the Male lion gets to eat first; he gorges himself in meat and blood, leaving the scraps and remains for his five mistresses to contend for.

Ever wonder how they do it? Today’s Feminist Western women probably vomit in their mouths at the thought of a lifestyle like this but it is very well possible in today’s society. In fact, a perfect example of a of lions spirit reincarnated is the ” P.I.M.P.” ; a pimp sends women to sleep with men for money and keeps the larger percent of the cash. The prostitute takes all of the risk and does all of the work but still manages to make sure the Pimp “eats first.” Now in no way do I support what pimps do but there is always much to be learned from anyone achieving success at high levels, and if you are seeking to improve your seduction skills, there is much to be learned from the lion.

Selfishness

Think about it, lions are the most selfish creatures on earth, What does the lion do? He sits around while the Lioness’ go out and capture HIM food, and once they return he eats FIRST. Does that sound selfish to you? The lion doesn’t help raise the baby lions and he doesn’t let any other lions have sex with any of his women. And because of this, the Lioness continue to do anything that is going to make him happy. I know a lot of readers are probably thinking, ” That’s a really misogynistic thing to say” to which my only reply is, “Have fun your internet porn.” Oddly enough, women go nuts for selfish men; how many girls do you know who can’t seem to let go of some selfish asshole right now? Its a sad thing that society is this way but if this is what works, why must we reinvent the wheel? If the majority of attractive women already go for selfish men, you’re simply giving them what they want anyway. You’re not an asshole, you are actually doing them a favor by making it easy for them to want you.

In fact, women are most happy when they are making men happy. Think about the smile shines across a girls face and the joy that fills her eyes when you tell her how awesome the meal was that she just cooked. What about how deeply she embraces you when you compliment her on how great she was in bed. Have you ever seen her happier than that?

Set Boundaries

Women in relationships with men who know how to draw boundary lines are a lot happier than women with pussy men who let them walk all over them. The woman is unhappy because not only does she have to be a woman, she has to take on the role of the man when he’s too weak to make a decision. She also has to listen to him whining and complaining all day long; and that must be stressful to deal with. A woman with a strong man that can put her in her place is happy because all she has to do now is relax in the comfort of being a woman.

Have you ever heard this before?

” What on earth does she see in that guy!? What an asshole! She can do way better! If she was with me I’d treat her like a Goddess”

That mentality is the very reason why the attractive women you want don’t want to be with you. She wants a selfish man, she’s disgusted at the idea of someone wanting to treat her like a Goddess and groveling for her attention. The guys who she wants to be with simply demand her attention, and if she refuses he understands that there are a lot more women who won’t. Just think about what would happen if a Lioness refused to give the alpha lion attention. Would he put up with it? No, he would easily just walk over to the next Lioness who will give him what he wants.

No More Mr.Nice Guy/Stand Up For Yourself

If your brain works half as well as the rest of ours, it is pretty obvious that the women who are head over in heels in love with a guy are rarely if ever in relationships with an ” extremely nice guy”. So what do you have to do to get with women?

Drop the Mr.Nice guy act and begin to do what you want to do. No more compromising and accompanying her to see the latest movie in the twilight series because you “think” it is going to make her happy. If you are doing something that you don’t not want to do, she will be unhappy to know that her boyfriend is too much of a Sissy to stand up for himself.

Lets say you are out walking with your woman and some teenage kids come up behind you, aggressively bump you and your girlfriend, and laugh and keep walking. Now she may not want you to beat up a bunch of little kids but how disappointed in you do you think she would be if you didn’t say anything? What if it was a more harmful situation? How can she ever feel safe when she goes out with you? The lion would never let a stray lion coming into his territory and do the slightest bit of harm to him or anyone of his Lioness. He defends them and as a result they do anything to make him happy, but if he loses the fight he must give up everything he owns.

Being attractive to women involves you taking an alpha lion stance toward them and the rest of the world. If you remember to refuse to comprise, set boundaries and stand up for yourself you’ll enjoy the luxury of loving, serving women just as the lion does.

My First Date With A Self Made Millionaire

So I had started a conversation with this lady that was sitting next to me on the train. At that moment she appeared to be in her early thirties, but what really got my attention was her big curly hair – I’ve always had a thing for curls. We get to chatting about god knows what and to my surprise, her dialect isn’t matching her age. She speaks like a young girl in her early twenties, but I ignore my urge to call her out on it for trying to relate to me; we exchange numbers, and I exit at my stop shortly after.

A day later she began texting me asking, me when we would be meeting up for a “first date”. I politely decline her offer because I wasn’t all that into her aesthetically. Besides, I had a few other girls that I can hang out with if I wanted to so she wasn’t the primary thing on my mind. Although she did follow up; she would send me a text every other day asking if I wanted to hang out. This carried on for about two weeks, and I’d politely decline all her offers.

Then one evening a girl who I had scheduled to hang out with cancelled on me at the last minute. I began going through my contacts searching for alternatives and she popped up in my mind. ” The Lady From The Train ” – I knew she was into me and would gladly hang out with me any chance she had gotten. So I text her ” Hey, if you’re free come join me at my place for a few glasses of wine. What time can you get here? “. I’m thinking I would just hang with her at home, get laid and call it a day.

She replies that she would rather not travel, but that I could come meet her at her apartment for the same experience. I ignored it and just reached out to a few other women to see if they would want to hang out.

It was getting late and after no one I knew was available I picked up my cell to give her a call. I figured I could charm her into coming on over to mine in a couple minutes on the phone. She answered with that young girl voice vibrating with excitement. We talked a bit, but my charming efforts weren’t as successful as I had hoped. Turns out she has to wake up early, so leaving home is out of the question.  Although she still extended her offer to have me over. I was about to decline and then she said ” Come on over, I’ll pay someone to cook for us”. ” Pay someone to cook for us?” I said to myself. I then replied to her ” Ok I’ll come , give me a hour “.

She texts me her address, I get dressed, and jump on the train to head to the city. When I arrived I just couldn’t seem to find her building, I’m pacing up in down the block its said to be located on, but I just didn’t see it. I reach in my pocket for my phone, call her, and she instructs me to where her place is. Its this small door that looks like a fire exit door to a big building. I ring the door bell she , three bright lights instantly flash, one even appears to scan my face from the top to bottom before I could blink. After I am buzzed in, I hop into button-less elevator and it just begins taking me up to hers. When the elevator opens she’s standing there smiling, in a beautiful tortoise dress, and without any shoes on . She greets me with a warm hug, hands me a glass of wine, and tells me to make myself at home.

At this point my bloods rushing, I look around an notice that she is living in a luxury three story pent house apartment. There is a set of swivel stairs in the center of the pent house that takes you from one floor to the next. I instantly wipe the “Shock & Awed” look from my eyes and throw my game face on. I repeat to myself ” Millionaire shmillionaire.. she’s no different than any other”.

At this point she wandered off to I’m not sure where. So I begin giving myself a tour of the place. I grab ahold of this electronic record player on the second floor that appears to be playing music throughout the whole house, and put on one of my favorite songs. I hear her yell something out from downstairs, so I make my way to the bathroom, and head down to her to finally get to know her. When I get to the first floor I see her with her back turned, rinsing something in the sink. Now its time to bring her into the present moment – I slowly step up behind her, place one hand on each side of her waist and whisper “hey princess” into her left ear. She’s startled, flushed, and giggling from the jolt I sent creeping up her spine.

She begins asking me all of these questions about my life and from the glint in her eyes I can tell that she’s just happy to be around me. We continue to talk with just a few 2-3 second ” awkward pauses” and before you know it we’re making out one the plush sofas on the second floor.

I’d kiss her, she would pull away and talk. She would kiss me, I would pull away and talk. Then she suggested we head to the top floor so she could show me the view of the city from the patio. We walk on up there and I’m just on a natural high from all of the visuals. My gut then says to me ” Alright, now go home.. Be the one to end the date”. I ignore it. My mind takes over and wants to enjoy the view just a little more. Just moments after the alert from my gut, she suggest I get going so she could prepare herself for bed.

“Shit!”.

I grab her, make out with her passionately once more, and look deep into her eyes as I say my good byes. She walks me all the way outside, hails me a yellow taxi, stands there waving and smiling as the cab pulls off.

I lean back in the cab, throw my hands behind my head and merely thankful for having had that experience.

Lets see where this leads…

Reject me, I Dare You

Reject me, I Dare you!
After a two month hiatus I went out a couple clubs and bars this weekend and to my surprise not one of the guys I saw were doing anything other than standing around with a drink in their hands. I could practically see the boredom dripping off of the dresses of some of the sexiest women New York City had to offer; just wishing someone was brave enough to show them a good time. The saddest part is when I looked at the male bystanders I could see the child in their eyes just wanting to come out and play. A blind man could spot how bored these women were but for whatever reason the mens social conditioning was sitting in the drivers seat; and the inner child was in the back seat asking ” Are We There Yet? so I can get out and play”. I instantly understood why so many of our women are becoming lesbians; what other choice do they have? From the looks of things, other girls are the only ones who aren’t afraid to approach and dance with each other. The majority of our men have turned into dry, loose, and smelly pussies.

You would think with all websites like this and the popularity of the whole ” Pick Up Artist” scene that their would be more heroes saving the day out there. Instead, there is just a bigger audience ready to cheer on the guys like us who are getting involved. Just happy for the knowledge;lacking all the motivation to actually make something of themselves.

Anyways; I wasn’t going to stand around much longer, my friend Myles was in town today; not to mention I paid a $20 cover to get into the place. I was with a group of four( Not a good number for picking up chicks by the way) and after two mins of checking out the nervous Men and bored/Fed up with these losers hot girls I made my first move. I turned directly around to a group of about seven girls who were standing behind me. I threw my arms around the two who were closest to me, and spoke to the group: ” Guys come dance with me and my friends. Theres no way you guys came out to stand around”. I could instantly tell the majority of the group was excited they had finally been approached; there eyes lit up, and then they looked at the ” Group Leader ( the prettiest Girl Of The group)” for confirmation. And instead of grabbing her hand and pulling her out onto the dance floor, I waited around for her response which was a poor played move on my part. ” Um umm umm I think we’re just going to have a ladies night tonight” was her response. The rest of the group looked like deflated balloons after this; if no one else approaches them, they could be having another boring night. I engaged the pretty girl of the group in conversation trying to reason with her so she would give her pawns permission to go out and finally dance. We laughed a bit, she offered me her number for a rain-check, I declined and turned around to see my three friends still standing there.

We split into groups, I took Myles with me and my other two friends went there own way. We made our rounds at the place and made a few more small approaches and danced with a few girls. My attitude the entire night was ” Reject me! I dare you” and I would look into the eyes of every girl I approached with that same intensity. ” Go on and reject me, I dare you to”. All that did was put them on their toes, few of them actually had the balls to take me up on that dare. Ironically enough, I had been away from the scene for so long that I was nervous before every approach I made this entire night. But whats nerves to a guy like me? Can you please remind me. I wasn’t out to gain anything in particular on this night; I’ve been pretty comfortable with the woman I have at the moment. My mission was to make sure my group, got with chicks and had a good time.

Shortly after the groups separation, Myles taps me on the shoulder and points to a group of about 8 or 9 girls all standing in a corner alone – barely even talking to each other. I wasn’t going to make the same mistake again. I walked right on over to the group, grabbed the hands of the most attractive one out of them all and pulled her onto the dance floor. Myles followed up and did the same, we danced with them a bit and the rest of my group spotted the scene and joined in. They exchanged contact info with the girls and then after we had approached every attractive girl in the entire club, we moved on to the next one to do the same. Myles went on to tear the clubs up that night – that guy was on fire! I wished you guys could of seen him; he had the exact same attitude. It wasn’t ” I don’t care if I get rejected it”, the attitude was ” Reject me.. I dare you” and he meant it.

If you read Way Of The Player there is no reason for you to be a WallFlower and if you live in New York City or are anywhere near and would like me to work with you on your social mastery out here; My Email address is at the bottom. When you approach women anywhere, even if you are approaching them during the day. Approach them with the attitude ” Reject me.. I dare you”. Master that attitude and the amount of reject you deal with will cut in half.

Peace & Love

Women Are Watching You

The Camera Is Always On And Women Are Always Watching

If you had been informed that there is an invisible camera following your every move, that would be linked to the television screen of the woman of your dreams; how much different would you live your life?

Would you continue to spend unnecessary hours in front of the television watching the same reruns over and over again? Would you get lazy and decide that you’re going to slack off and not go to the gym today? Would you walk out of the bathroom without washing your hands? We believe the majority of men out there in the world would instantly shift and begin living their lives more efficiently. Why? Because they have been made aware that they are being watched by someone they’ve been longing for and want to impress.

Now which do you want first? The Good News or The Good News?

Well, Congratulations Players!

It is your luck day, because you are being watched. You have been watched since the moment you have been able to make conscious decisions on your own. We say this because every choice you make not only effects you but its effects the way you will be seen by the people around you.

It has been said that women are 10x more intuitive than men are; meaning, they are capable of detecting bullshit on levels that men wouldn’t begin to comprehend.

So you aren’t going to learn a few pick up lines, read a few articles, and instantly have what it takes to be seen as attractive by beautiful women. You’ll be viewed as the most attractive version of yourself when you develop a lifestyle that you would feel comfortable living if you were being followed by a camera 24/7 and when you develop a reel of thoughts that you would feel comfortable being listened to by women everywhere.

I can tell you from personal experience that all my relationships with special women that I connect with on multiple levels came at a point where I was investing most of my energy into my dreams and aspirations. And they all began to deteriorate when I slacked off and invested a little too much of my energy into my partner. Now, none of my former partners were aware that I hadn’t been giving my greatest effort in other areas of my life but, they were able to intuitively sense and feel it. And as a result they began to nag me more and challenge my position in the relationship a lot more than usual.

Who do you want to be when you grow up?

As children we are always asked ” What do you want to be when you grow up “; as if that’s the end all, be all. ” We’re kids now, once we grow up, we’ll be this and that’s that. ” Do you ever want to settle? Do you ever want your life to just “stop”. I believe a more effective question to ask both children and adults is ” Who Do You Want To Be?” Because the feeling of success in life period whether it be success with attractive women, success in friendship, or success in a career comes from embodying the figure that you are happy to be in every aspect of your life.

Who are you to your friends? Who are you to your family? Who are you to the world? Now who do you want to be? It is time to start making choices and putting yourself in situations that you are proud of because the world is watching. There is no getting one over on life; anyone that’s ever cheated to win at something as simple as a board game knows that no satisfaction follows, only guilt. And guilt is unattractive.

I have a friend that had recently been accepted into of some sort of secret fraternity like group, when I went to visit him not to long ago he couldn’t wait to let me know that he made it in. He showed me the cover of this mysterious looking book he had received upon entry and I reached for it curious as to what was inside. His words exactly ” No, I’m not allowed to show anyone”. I tried to persuade him to let me see it a few times but he was serious, he couldn’t show me.

He placed the book down on his bed and shortly after this my buddy let me know that he was going out, but I should kick it around his place for an hour until he came back. Once he left my curiosity instantly arouse, I knew where he left the book and I would finally get to see what was inside.

As I began to walk to go grab the book I stopped; am I really going to sneak behind my friends back? Am I going to ruin our trust and potentially ruin the trust he has within the group? I turned back and felt ashamed for even thinking about doing such a thing. If he did show me the book or even irresponsibly placed it somewhere where anyone could get to it, he would be breaking his groups rule and although they wouldn’t know, he would feel guilt and they would feel it, which would affect his future within the group. In the same respect, If I read the book I would feel guilt which would affect the feelings and future of our friendship.

The invisible camera is always on players; which is why they say character is what you do when no one is watching. If you live your life consciously believing that there is a camera following you and a screen linked to everyone around that can watch what you do, not only will you live more genuinely, you will reach heights you never knew imaginable.

The Camera is on..

Cold Showers Improve Your Attractiveness

Attract Beautiful Women By Taking Cold Showers

Cold showers have been scientifically proven to improve multiple aspects of our physical and mental health. The ancient samurai warriors used to pour buckets of cold river water on their heads every morning in a Shinto practice called Misogi. This was a purification ritual on a spiritual level. They believed that it cleansed their spirit and helped them start a new day & new adventure fresh. The Spartans You know those Ripped up scarlet cape wearing soldiers from the movie 300) felt warm water was for the weak and unmasculine. The original James Bond stories noted that he would begin his showers warm and end them with a few minutes of cold water.

In the 1820s, a German farmer named Vincenz Priessnitz started touting a new medical treatment called “hydrotherapy,” which used cold water to cure everything from broken bones to erectile dysfunction. He turned his family’s homestead into a sanitarium, and patients flocked to it in the hope that his cold water cure could help them. Among his clientele were dukes, duchesses, counts, countesses, and a few princesses to boot.

Many cultures throughout history have used cold showers to improve multiple aspects of their lives. Here in this new aged lifestyle, we’ve become to comfortable with the luxury of Hot Showers that we have forgot some of our ancient practices that have provided great overall benefits to our well-being.

Benefits of Cold Showers

Weight Loss/ Brown Fat:

People who take cold showers experience an increase in brown fat cells, which protect from aging; fight obesity, diabetes, and heart disease

Brown fat = special fat cells that have, unlike white fat cells, high concentrations of mitochondria and, therefore, are able to generate heat without any muscular activity. Brown fat concentrations are very high in new borns and infants, but gradually decline with age due to an absence of cold stimulation in the general population.

Brown fat cells burn glucose in an attempt to create as much heat energy as possible. A higher ammount of these cells within the body will lead to more energy being burned per second, meaning more unnecessary weight being released from the body. Many people within our culture today have been seeking to improve that rate of their metabolism because it means that every process within the body will become more efficient  causing more weight to be released and more growth/restoration of muscle tissue to occur.

Strengthens Immunity

Cold showers are sometimes touted as a preventative tonic for colds, flu, and infections. An experiment in Prague studied the effect of cold water immersions on athletic young men. They immersed themselves in water at 14°C (57°F), three times a week for six weeks. Among many changes, they saw increased levels of two types of white blood cells: monocytes and lymphocytes. While certain lymphocytes are instrumental in eliminating bacteria, viruses, and toxins; monocytes are indirectly responsible for the engulfing and consuming of pathogens and foreign materials. Researchers believe that the increased metabolic rate, which results from the body’s attempt to warm itself up, activates the immune system and releases more white blood cells in response. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that people who take regular cold showers are less likely to develop colds, flu’s, and even some forms of cancer.

Clear Radiant Skin

When you shower with warm water, it opens up your pores. Then you wash and this cleans up your pores. That’s all good. When you end, it would be best to close your pores and cold water does just that. It’s good to close your pores after you are all cleaned up because it will prevent the pores from being easily clogged by dirt and oil, which causes skin imperfections such as acne for example. Another benefit is that cold water makes your blood vessels constrict which reduces swelling and the appearance of dark circles under your eyes (where skin is at its thinnest). This provides you with a young, healthy glow.

Shiny healthy Hair

Cold water makes your hair look healthier and shinier. As a matter of fact, cool air makes your hair shinier too (that’s why there is a cool air button on your hair dryer). What the cold water does is that it closes the cuticle which makes the hair stronger and prevents dirt from easily accumulating within your scalp. Basically, the same principle with how it closes the pores of your skin as mentioned above. Stronger hair, of course, prevents hair from being easily pulled out when you are combing, and it helps in slowing down overall hair loss.

Kills Depression

Cold showers release chemicals into the body to decrease stress, anxiety, and genuinely just make you feel happier. A cold shower will wake up the body, mind, spirit, and you will be fully prepared to take on whatever challenges the day will set before you.

Increase Of Testosterone

With male testosterone at an all time low (which could be due to all the soy intake that’s going today. Soy turns male testosterone into estrogen; which is why many men who drink and eat soy often experience a flabby woman like chest. Check underneath the ingredients label on your favorite foods, you’ll be surprised how many of them say Contains: Soy Ingredients) cold showers are a great way to give your body a natural boost of testosterone without using those new testosterone injects and creams. Cold water will increase testosterone and the libido; not only does one’s sex increase, but so does one’s overall strength and energy levels.

Save You Time/Money

As we are all aware of, the price of oil is on the rise and by taking cold showers you are not only saving yourself money but you are preserving one of the earths most valuable resources. Also if you take a cold shower you won’t be spending unnecessary time standing under warm water in comfort, inhaling toxic fumes from the evaporated chlorine and fluoride in the water. So if you won’t take colder showers for yourself, at least do it for humanitarian reasons.

I have personally been taking cold showers for a little over a year now and I honestly have to say I’ve never looked or felt better in my entire life. I have this theory that if I can wake up every morning and jump into a cold shower, the toughest part of my day will already be out of the way – the rest is a breeze. Cold showers have also effected the way I deal with my nerves; being able to ignore all the mental resistance/anxiety about jumping into a cold shower is not very different to ignoring the anxiety you feel before approaching a woman. Which is why I want to invite all of you Players and Playerettes to be out there to take on the 21 Day Cold Shower Challenge  You can even track your progress and relate to others who are during the same challenge within the Player Chronicle section of the forums. I would also advise taking before and after pictures so you can see the significant changes within your hair, skin and body; not to mention you will feel absolutely amazing.

The 21 Day Cold Shower Challenge invites you on a course that can permanently change your life for the better. All that is required is for you to take two cold showers a day – One in the morning and one before bed. The first three days are always the toughest, but after that you’ll be singing tunes and dancing around in the cold water like a true champ.

I’m looking forward to reading about your results…Peace & Love
