There’s something that separates the super successful and the pleasantly successful, the mPUAs and the PUAs, the strong-hearted and the lion-hearted in the world; the ability to overcome Plateaus.
I don’t mean to reduce the difference between the two breeds of men into one superfluous statement, but I find it necessary to implore the significance of what I just said. The normal shit has already been covered. There are thousands of books about “HOW NOT TO BE A FAILURE” and “HOW TO NOT BE THE 70 YEAR OLD VIRGIN” But that stage is far behind most of us. We already have an idea, or a business, or a job, or some game, or something good going for us. We haven’t “lost” in life — we’ve just lost MOMENTUM.
Inevitably at one point in your endeavors, things will slow down. This specific type of obstacle is surprisingly MORE dangerous than the ones you faced before because you AREN’T desperate. You’re already on your feet; you aren’t backed against a wall. That animalistic motivation you had has decayed, and the relentless pace at which you pursued your goals has subsided into a timed stroll. You’re not poor as shit, you’re not dying; you’re not starting from “scratch,” so the amount of drive you have isn’t as high as it used to be.
It’s a test we all face in life, and it’s ingeniously constructed. It’s an easy way to spot the creme de la crop among men because all the pussies will rush to settle for less.
But of course, the question of plateaus doesn’t concern US right? This article is just to acknowledge that they exist and that they stop OTHER people from succeeding. Luckily, WE are not OTHER people; we’re all fucking animals here. We know that when things seem to slow down out of nowhere, we just need to push harder out of nowhere. Thank God.
If you’re not at a plateau in life, save this article and read it when you are. I promise a time will come when you’re glad you did. All of you will be asking the same question at that moment, and i’ll answer it: Yes, this is normal. Yes, it’s beatable. No, you cannot just “keep on going,” You need to go harder.
