Upon my first listen to S&S I noticed a significant shifting and reframing of my worldview in relation to the goals of the program.
Rather than using past failures to continually keep me in the identity of someone who wasn’t good with women, I reframed the majority of them. I realized just how many opportunities I’ve had in the past, how many successes I’ve had, and how many more I could have in the future.
Day one I chose to go out to a bar with a friend, which ended up with us at a house party. I don’t usually go out to bars, and I’ve been especially introverted since beginning EMPEROR, so this was significant for me.
Women have been giving me very positive looks since I began the program. Cashiers will lean in when I’m speaking to them and smile seductively at me. I feel people staring at me whenever I go out.
One thing that is apparent is that I need to expand my dating pool. I have a friend who is more than willing to go out to bars with me and I’ll be doing that. I’ve regularly gotten laid off of Tinder and recently OkCupid, but I realize just how many opportunities I have in day-to-day life that I’m not capitalizing on.
