Because your mindset is that you aren't good enough and you have to do something or you won't succeed. Slippery slope to go down.
You are always banging on about mindset like standing there looking at myself in the mirror and
repeating "You are a beast among men, women desire you, you are a strong and fearless warrior,
work hard and your success is guaranteed, you ARE enough!!!" will make the slightest bit of difference.
I could have a mindset that I'm Captain Kirk, that doesn't mean I'll have the starship Enterprise parked
in my front garden. Some people are just born to be bad at this stuff. The hard part is accepting it and
having the courage to admit it won't change. I could read all the books, study all the PUAs, spend every
moment I'm not at work lifting weights at the gym, spend all my money on fancy clothes and haircuts and
it would make SOD all difference to how women perceive me and how awkward I feel around them.
If I decide I'm Jackie Chan does that mean I suddenly know kung fu? If I decide I'm Boris Johnson does
that make me Prime Minister? Positive affirmations are the stuff of stupid online memes.
