I can't fucking do it.

I've been following TRP for half a year now. I read the rational male and think I understand the main idea of redpill. But fuck, I can't implement that shit into my life. I'm so fucking beta, and nothing I read will help me change that. I've been in so many perfect situations where I can get out of my comfort zone and be alpha but my beta self won't let me. The only times I'm alpha is when i'm drunk, which is fucked up because I thought it would help me practise. I always tell myself that I'm going to do it but I never go for it. What should I do? How did any of you guys deals with getting out of your comfort zone and actually going for it?

Take a deep breath and relax man.

This TRP shit is a lot to swallow, especially early on, you can’t expect to jump right in to banging supermodels every night. Baby steps, get your life on track first before stressing so much about talking to girls. Get your work/school life on track, work up to lifting 4-5x/week, pick up a couple hobbies, build up your social circle, etc. but don’t try and do it all at once

Set a couple goals for each week and make sure you’re crossing off one goal at a time. The rest will come naturally

thanks i needed this kinda asweell and it is a lot to take in really when you first join trp it really begins with self-improvement and i didnt realize that until i kept tryna chase and get pussy when its the other way around.

it doesn't begin with self improvement. It IS self improvement my guy.

Personal improvement in alignment with TRP ideology started happening 6 years ago.

I found TRP ~2 years ago.

It's only now that I feel like I'm really embodying what the TRP is and teaches. The point of me sharing this with you is that this thing isn't a sprint. It's a marathon. And guess what? I still have a million things I need to work on. It's a never-ending process of improving myself. So let me throw this back at you, how long have you being doing this for?

He said in the first line for about 6 months. I'm sure I'll eat downvotes for this, but the sub needs to be realistic: The sidebar can't rescue every beta.

Never thought about your last sentence. Good point.

Imo if OP for example can‘t let go of his „bluepill“ behavior a „red pilled“ friend could give him the push he needs tho

Bro it takes longer than 6 months to internalize even half of the shit here and then even take the jump and start implementing it in your life, just take a step back from the microscope and relax. You’ve taken the first steps by being here, it’s baby steps from here until you’re running. Keep internalizing what you’ve been reading on the sidebar and then start trying your best to implement it in your day to day life. Where ever you fail, try and try again.

You’re expecting to be able to create a nuclear reactor in your bedroom without even knowing how to wire a light switch. It doesn’t come as quickly as you think. Everyone here is different and the rates at which people develop are varying. Go at your own pace.

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet32 points33 points  (2 children) | Copy

Let's get you thinking about this.

Why do you think you only behave alpha when you're drunk?

[–]TFWnoLTR17 points18 points  (0 children) | Copy

It's far easier to take social risks while drunk. It lowers inhibition and you generally care less what people think about you while under the influence.

I have the same problem as OP. I have become dependant on alcohol to help me nut up into alpha behavior. It's a serious problem that is very difficult to resolve.

Be warned, guys. Depending on booze creates more dependency and eventually addiction. I didn't used to have this problem at all until I recently realized I look for excuses to drink and crave a drink even when I'm by myself sometimes.

Lack of inhibitions besides a large portion of millennials can only pick up people when they're wasted, this has been shown.

You should implement the IDGAF mentality. Read The subtle art of not giving a f*ck and try to live it.

What I took from the book: Life is too fucking short to worry about things like approaching women and what other people think of you.

Just piggybacking this to say you need to learn to do this without the help of booze.

[–]topmatrixgun17 points18 points  (0 children) | Copy

What things are you talking about, brother? What alpha male things are you not able to do? Gaming women or improving yourself?

As per my understanding, Trp is far from just getting laid. It is more about getting your life in order like working hard and earning money, working out to get a better body, getting enough sleep, commanding respect in your day to day life, etc.

Trp is a way of life.

Women will be a by product of the awesome life you are going to build.

[–]CaptainKidd9612 points13 points  (2 children) | Copy

To be honest I don't think you're alpha when you're drunk. I think you're that drunk funny beta guy who gets all aggressive and starts acting like a retard, but in his head he's alpha as fuck. I know many people like this, they are quiet and shy but when they get drunk they start acting like they're the shit, when in reality they're lame as fuck.

Stop relying on alcohol and get out there and improve yourself. Stop thinking so much and just get out of your confort zone little by little.

[–]devansh_1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Dude people always have their own concepts and thoughts about what an alpha is, it has everything to do with taking risks, being aggressive and making others fall in line with their ideas and will, and nothing to do with being the best guy respected by everyone (an alpha can be that but that is non-essential, an asshole can be an alpha too.)

What happens when someone challenges an alpha? They get aggressive!! Unless the challenger is a no-one beta and he cannot be bothered, because the challenge isn't damaging to him in any way. Ofcousre alphas can be lame, girls will still instinctively be attracted to them. Obviously other things affect the overall attraction.

[–]CaptainKidd961 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I was talking about people who when sober are shy, quiet, they avoid any kind of conflict at all costs, aren't very outgoing and social etc. But when they get drunk they start rambling on and on, tell dumb stories to show how cool they really are. They basically become annoying and cringey, but in their head they look cool as fuck.

I think this is the way OP is and I was just letting him know that he isn't alpha, he's just the weird drunk guy who talks too much.

[–]whoscodex24 points25 points  (0 children) | Copy

use the 321 method. whenever your getting out of your comfort zone or doing somethin just count down to 1 starting from 3.

this helps me a lot i learned that if you take to long doing something asweell you'll get MORE nervous MORE SCARED and you'll start to overthink and sweat scenarios in your head and THEN your thoughts get to your feelings and you wont do it etc.

when i pussy out i feel like i'm in a box like "fuck dude"

and then i feel like a little bitch sometimes

and it makes me feel like im not getting anywhere in life btw i'm only 16 so i'm tryna grow my balls as big as i can so i can be comfortable approaching females and overall being socially comfortable.

something personally i say to myself on a daily is "fuck it"

just like saying "yolo" but in a more "WHO GIVES A FUCK" vibe.

just "fuck it' bro and put your all into improving yourself or whatever it is your trying to get done.

[–]Trposh49 points50 points  (7 children) | Copy

How often do you masturbate? If more than once a week, then try dialing it back. For me my energy level is night and day difference depending on how recently I’ve masturbated. Right afterward, I’m such a beta fag; if it’s been more than a few days, I have a lot more energy; more than a week, and I’m like the fuckin’ Terminator—I will destroy anything that gets in the way of reaching my goals.

[–]ooshh 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy

Do you find that sex affects your energy levels, or is it just masturbation?

[–]Trposh12 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy

Both sex and masturbation temporarily reduce my energy levels, but sex affects me differently. I chalk it up to the fact sex is far more gratifying (most of the time anyway), which offsets the energy dip a little bit.

[–]Trposh7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

As with everything, context matters. I was responding to OP’s question about how to avoid slipping back into his old beta habits and increase his odds of reaching his goals. He posted here presumably because he’s not satisfied with his progress, so I was trying to help him. If a girl is taking care of your needs adding value in your life and that is working for you right now, then I wouldn’t recommend just blindly following the advice from some internet forum. If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it.

You become comfortable when you constantly put yourself in uncomfortable situations, one of the biggest mistakes i made when i discovered the red pill was constantly reading up on theory and not really putting myself out there.

[–]MetbyChance20 points21 points  (0 children) | Copy

Just grow some balls.

I understand just how you feel, thats how I felt most of my highschool life until I finally asked the hot chick who liked me out and she said yes, had a good relationship but due to being a beta boyfriend, it ended in 3 months.

Then I found another chick, was really scared to go for it but decided to blurt a half nervious/half good "wanna go out with me quote" and ended up with her.

And then it just kept happening, and with each time, it got a lot easier, the only thing that bothers me now is good timing.

Once you realize your fear is all in your head and rejection really doesn't hurt that much you'll start living life.

It's not about not being afraid, it's about being afraid and still doing it.

[–]skunkbear44417 points18 points  (3 children) | Copy

Dude not hating, I LOL "I'm so fucking beta".

I have been completely red pilled for about 10 years now, I got this way before ever reading Heartiste or any forum shit. I was purple pill for another 12 years before that, noticing red pills in front of my face but not having someone confirm for me directly.

You sound like you never even had a purple pill stage out of your own observations.

You are big drama man right now. You will laugh in a few years how feminine this was.

Eat some steaks, take some zinc, nail some ass, shoot some guns. Take some physical risks. And stay cool playa.

A finer point, many red pill guys hate on alcohol and fake courage, oh no it's such a crutch! I think if alcohol helps the traits you want come out use it as a tool especially as a beginner.

Just stop being so dramatic. 6 months isn't what it took to build Rome wigga.

[–]justlibertarian1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

I think the problem with alcohol is it’s so easy as a social lubricant that you can become like Raj on the Big Bang theory ie. can’t talk to girls without a drink

[–]devansh_-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

Dude just chug some alcohol and see what the world is like when you are a fucking alpha. Once done even when sober you will be less scared to do things that you were scared to do before because now you have seen the consequences are nothing as bad as you imagined, probably even pleasurable, you will be easily taking the risks.

TRP does not make anyone alpha. It makes you mimic alpha behavior and act like you have an abundance of women. In other words you can be a fake alpha like most people here.

[–]MarkBoabaca2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

my beta self won't let me. The only times I'm alpha is when i'm drunk

You answered your own problem right here. You're overthinking, and they only time you're more alpha, as you say, is when your inhibitions are lowered and you're not hyper focusing on what you should or shouldn't do.

Try meditating, exercising, or taking up some activity that redistributes your focus away from how you think you should act. It should come naturally. Don't call yourself a beta. It's just a label, but when you associate yourself with that label you're adding to your own negative mindset.

[–]SerialATA_Killer1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Find a friend who wants to go on the journey with you, that's how I started out. Possibly a mentor that you know irl if you would rather go that route. It will give you some guidance and help you through the post-rejection loneliness.

[–]RoccoPinkman1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Read ‘NO MORE MR NICE GUY’ And ‘WHEN I SAY NO I FEEL GUILTY’ Both if those books will get you doing things because YOU want to do them, that’s the most red pill thing you can do, put YOU and YOUR needs first. Forget the rest for now bro it will come.

David Goggins made a video the other day about having a dog mentality. Like when I feed my dog, I can sit there and hand him food all day and he’s gonna keep eatin, he’s always hungry.

[–]devansh_1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Something you can try to be an alpha!! Alphas don't over think before acting. When you start thinking how about something simple, or try to come up with failsafe strategy just stop thinking and go and act out in the simplest way possible, your real personality and awesomeness will shine through, being vulnerable to possible humiliation is the thing that makes an alpha, it shows confidence that a beta just cannot have. I tried it and this works.

Instead of practicing to pretend to be an alpha all while having a weak mindset and no actual social skills and know how (you will just keep planning and never testing yourself, since you will not have any feedback you can analyse you will not improve at all.) What you should do is first become an alpha i.e. don't be afraid to make mistakes, let others laugh at you(they will often do this because they are themselves scared of you or the situation and want to dispell the tension and appear non threatening.) Then try to improve, yet making less mistakes and doing things more smoothly, you can be slick and smart, you can test everything you read about this way, this will require lots of energy and will power, it will help you a lot if you practice NoFap and semen retention.

[–]Rimefang1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It's like working out. Repetition, routine, repeat.

You won't get results immediately, but persist and you get them eventually.

[–]OilyB1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

The most difficult thing in life to do is to establish approximately where on the scale of simp to alpha one is situated. Of course we can move up. Or fall down. From the moment we establish where we are situated, we need to start the acceptance process. Otherwise we'll be unhappy the rest of our life. Accepting that you're not alpha but for instance only halfway up is difficult but not impossible. It takes away a lot of psychological unrest. You can recognize and know that there lesser men. And better men. The universal key to happiness in your relationships is choosing someone who is just a little 'beneath' you in terms of courage, mental abilities, finance, emotional stability, academic achievements etc.

It's the only way she'll be able to look up to you. And that's what they all want.

[–]1PotatoWatt1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

bro, if you check my post history, im on the same train as you.

I just want to leave you with a quick points:

1-You are not alone, there are guys who dont go through what you are going through and they never become a true man, and are forever sad. There are guys who went through what you are going through, and there are guys who are still not there. My point is, you are not alone. Its a thing you must handle to grow.

2- It will hurt and hurt and hurt, but listen from me, one day after so much hurting you will start to change mentally, you will start feeling different, more idgaf, and then the results will start popping up. But it will take time.

3- Its going to be hard, you gotta think and think, feel the regret in your veins, feel the hurt, feel the shots you missed, think about the person you are, get stressed, get mad, cry, let it all down, break down. But every time you are doing this, force yourself to think you are not going to get knocked down once and stay down, you are going to get up and fight back, force yourself, it isnt easy, if it was easy there would be no TRP. Just dont sit back and relax. Push yourself. Dont want to go to the gym? Too bad. You gotta. "I dont feel like it" stfu and do it.

Women are the ones who "meh I dont feel like replying" and follow their emotions, guys follow their duty. You should do stuff not because you 'feel like it' or 'im in a good mood', you HAVE to do them. Its your responsibility. If you refuse that responsibility then you are not a man. You are expelled from the tribe.

[–]sebastianconcept0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Careful with expectations. As others have commented and experienced here, these things take a lot more than 6 months.

My suggestion is to meditate on this:

  1. Stop saying things that makes you weak https://youtu.be/IAFO3v_Ucio

  2. Check if you have your microgoals in adequate proportion to their rewards https://youtu.be/OoA4017M7WU

This is called a paradigm. It hinders you from moving forward because you've already decided you can't do it.

Pick 1 thing at a time (like eye contact or something), focus on that until you've improved and move on to a new thing.

[–]HectoSexual0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It takes thousands of attempts. Not hundreds.

You are simply underestimating the effort required.


[–]ReddJive0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Stop reliving the mistakes of your past and focus on the moments of today. Replaying a situation over and over again in your head is not a productive way to live.

You're problem is you care too much. About them. Her. About being beta or alpha.

Just stop caring. None of it matters. All that matters is pursuing your life's mission or figuring it all out.

This is a marathon. Not a Sprint.

[–]Xemnas810 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This is highly relatable. I've been aware of TRP for 5 years and still not a Chad. I'd like to say I 100% don't want to be but I don't need to be to be happy. I need to be more...functional than what I have been.

So. Rather than trying to be 'alpha', what is YOUR ideal self like?

[–]Fabian2520 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I would suggest go Monk Mode work on yourself first, stop worrying about going out and being Alpha. Start feeling good about yourself, go to the gym, do a sport learn a new language. I suggest start going to the gym more and learn a martial arts really learn it. When you know you can take down another human being in a fight it gives you a unique type of confidence. Make a map in your mind and slowly gain confidence along the way. I personally learned by trying a 1,000 times and failing a 1,000 times and after it got better and better. I started succeeding and that started giving me confidence. Get a good wingman to help you out. Try tinder and get experience, don't get super drunk. Drink enough to be chill and every time you approach a girl drink a little less until you don't need alcohol at all.

[–]SnowBastardThrowaway0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–]DadOnDabs0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You said it yourself, "nothing I read will....". Quit reading and start acting. Hit the gym, start talking to people (male, female, Apache Helicopter), and try some new hobbies. Being "alpha" is a stupid idea that needs to be buried. Loving yourself and being comfortable with yourself to the point that it starts to bleed onto the people around you is what you should aim for.

[–]lugrulo0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Trp is not about learning to be “alpha”. It’s about following a set of behaviors, and avoiding others. It’s almost robotic - but it takes self awareness and practice. Don’t worry about being “beta” or any of that shit. That’s just an abstract label. Nobody is literally alpha or beta.

“You lost today, kid. But that doesn’t mean you have to like it.”

You must be young. You’ll learn, get tired of bs and burn out; then you’ll likely realize TRP is often approached naturally and it will come naturally. It’s young men that are at an advantage taking TRP before they get so fucked over they just “arrive” at the red pill like I did when I was 26/27.
