I've read posts on TRP and I've seen that most of the people on the community are extremely disciplined. They are working on their goals and acing in every part of their lives.

It's always been hard for me to stay disciplined and work on my goals. Like if I decide to do something, I just do it for some days and then I slack off. I really want to change that and become the best version of myself. It would be amazing to get tips from all the achievers on this community to stay disciplined and ace in every part of life.

Okay, lets say the obvious first: everyone wants to be the best version of themselves and everyone wants to change. And yet, most of them will stay on just wanting to do.

Discipline and motivation is the hard part here.

I recommend, instead of using empty phrases like "best version", actually write down who is that imaginary person you want to become. After you done that, write down milestones to achieve, leading to your ultimate aim. Then, after milestones, write down activities you need to do in order to achieve smaller aims. Categorize them in groups: every day, 3 times a week, weekly, monthly etc. And every once in a while, do the summary of your way, maybe even change some things. Make sure those overviews are regular in time.

This way its easier to stay motivated. Good luck!

The hard part is to keep up with doing the summary review as well. How?

What you said is true and let me tell you where a lot of people fuck up when it comes to self-improvement: patterns.

Patterns of behaviour, patterns of thinking, patterns of perception, patterns of emotions... Patterns long wired to you by society, your personal experience and biology. Breaking out of these patterns is the difficult part, not finding motivation.

For example. You're used to eating 2500 kcal a day. You usually eat a breakfast, a lunch, a few snacks then a dinner, then some late night snacks. You did this for a few years and now you're 20-25% bf. Finally you find TRP and realize, "Holly fuck, I need to cut weight" and you do the easiest thing it, look it up. You find the solution is to eat 1500kcal a day and realize you've been in a 500 kcal surplus for the past 3 years or so.

You are motivated in the moment and decide to start the next day. The next day arrives and you look up your breakfast and find it's 600kcal. You're like cool. You eat it.

Then lunch comes, and it says 1000kcal. You eat it and you know you should stop now cuz you reached your goal, and then the patterns kick in. You crave a snack. You crave the dinner. Your stomach starts growling because of the ghrelin levels spiking at the time of your dinner. You feel weak. You eat your dinner. You grab your snacks. You sleep it off and say, "Well fuck it. I'll start tomorrow for real".

6 months in and you sleep to yourself saying, "Well, fuck it. I'll start tomorrow for real", developing a new hamstring pattern.

All the while not paying attention to the patterns you've developed in the last couple of years.

Grow some balls and break free from your patterns and you'll realize that you can be a much better person.

THIS. The OP is just looking at what people are writing on Reddit. 90%+ is probably bullshit. They're still doing well, but no one can be perfect all the time, unless they're a psychopath in which case their idea of "perfect" is going to end very, very badly for them.

I think TRP is a lot like Instagram.

People only post photos of themselves looking great or doing impressive things on IG. TRP is the same. You're seeing the highlights of other men's progress, mixed in with exaggeration and sometimes outright lies. Although some guys are open about their setbacks and failed experiments, most of TRP is humble bragging or some decent advice from guys who know their shit (plot twist: they didn't make it overnight). If you only went by what people say about themselves here you'd think everyone here is an alpha God, when in fact they're all just regular men - some better, some worse than you. They all have times where they sit around eating doritos and doing nothing productive. They just don't post about it.

Just compete with yourself. Be better than you were yesterday, last week, and last month. If you do this then over time it is impossible not to become a great version of yourself. Don't worry about what others are doing, only take advice from men with tangible results.

[–]Endorsed Contributoritiswr1tten6 points7 points  (2 children) | Copy

The whole reason the EC system exists is because there is "dude thotting" in the post 2016 TRP. Guys who post for attention.

[–]myfirsttimecoding1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I’m guilty of this but it feels like how the internet works. Before wanting to give some advice to someone I almost always feel the need to validate my greatness first and tell them my number count and how long I have been lifting for.

Maybe I do crave attention? It’s really hard to say. I feel like I comment 100% to give my viewpoint and advice that could potentially help a young man but it does feel like the nature of the internet causes this ‘dude thotting’ you speak of

[–]Endorsed Contributoritiswr1tten3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

That was a long winded way to agree.

[–]Quo2101 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

This is the most realistic take here.

Remember TRP values and traditionalist male values are very machiavellian. A very common male characteristic is bragging and competition, so obviously in a community where people try to be better men, these values are amplified. This isn't helpful all the time of course, as it sparks insecurity in many newcomers.

The guy that comes here bragging about being Chad Thundercock with a roided god physique of 250lbs and having a harem of bitches didn't achieve it overnight. He will claim such to portray himself as "the best" but after a bit of life experience, you know better.

[–]pilot33335 points36 points  (4 children) | Copy

No idea why this hasn’t been mentioned yet:

People only talk about the good parts of their lives. This is the internet - you can pick and choose the best parts of your life to display.

I might make a lot of money and have a great body but I live in Canada which is a frozen tundra. I also don’t have a good relationship with family and find it hard to fuck more than 2 girls a month.

[–]D4rkr4in2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

Have you considered moving to the civilized parts of Canada?

[–]pilot3334 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

Am considering it but I have a boat, jet skis, dirt bikes, a side by side, snowmobiles (this goes on) that i bought and that life just doesn’t work in the city. I have an isolated piece of land on a lake. Seems weird to throw this away for women and a better gym.

Every place has its drawbacks and nowhere is perfect no matter how you portray it.

[–]D4rkr4in1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I know exactly what you mean, I live in a nice big home on several acres of land. That being said, I'm young and I want to experience city life so I'm hunting for jobs in the city (what a great time to be job hunting, huh?). It really depends what your priorities are and what stage of life you're in

[–]pilot3330 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

yeah job is a big factor. i work online and live semi retired so not a huge factor for me but if you need work and the work is in the city then you gotta go

[–]TheGillos29 points30 points  (11 children) | Copy

One place to start is something simple, I forget where I heard this, some lecture from a military guy I think, but make your bed. Every day. Make your bed.

Then add something like cold showers.

Then cut out something for a week like masturbation or alcohol.

Then try fasting for 24 hours. Then try 48. Then try 100.

Do 10 pushups every hour.

Just add something small, keep with it, add something else. Consistency is fucking everything.

[–]Bigboyleggos22 points23 points  (7 children) | Copy

Solid answer, im going to add my two cents.

From my earliest childhood memories to my early 20s I was a creative genious/disorganized mess and extreemly Impulsive. I was diagnosed ADHD but my parents refused to put me on meds and im glad they didnt. A few years after moving out I couldnt do it any more the constant stress that comes with living a disorganized life was too fucking much. Simultaneously the thought of constantly limiting my "creative self" was scarry as hell.

Just add something small, keep with it, add something else. Consistency

This worked well for me and after reading about developing discipline I started with one small thing......making my bed every day.

After a few weeks I started a sleep schedule, no matter how wound up I was, I was in bed at a specific time with an alarm set for a specific time every day. It was a struggle for the first months but my body and mind became accustomed to it. Once adjusted I felt more energetic, the brain fog and Impulsive behaviour disappeared.

Then cut out something for a week like masturbation or alcohol.

Im a sucker for a good drink. Manhattans, whiskey & waters are my go to. Once a year Ill buy GOOD bottle of bourbon and once a week or so ill pour 2oz in a glass, add one ice cube, take a seat and watch the sunset.

Alchol for those of us thst lack discipline is the devil, i drink now but I did have an entire year of sobriety. I found that alcohol in small quantities a few times per week DOES effect every day of the week.

Look up healthy masturbation, spending this time in fantasy land and or porn is not helpfull. Being disciplined meads being 100% present in every minuite through your day. Leave the dreaming to your subconscious while you sleep.

Then try fasting for 24 hours. Then try 48. Then try 100.

I started doing long fasts a while ago, I lost weight, it helped me learn to live without all of my bullshit, feel good crutches I was consuming daily and saved me money. It helped me develop more discipline!

12 rules for life is a great book.

Now, pick a bed time and set an alarm for one time that goes off every day. Do this today and plan on doing it every day for the rest of your life.

Next saturday, wake up to your alarm, make your bed and plan on making it every day for the rest of your life.

3rd saturday, wake up, make your bed and plan on fasting until sunday morning.

4th saturday, wake up, make your bed and plan on fasting until sunday morning and decide what you will be adding to your list of daily or weekly habbits.

Its not fun but it leads to a better life, being disciplined removes the unnecessary chaos and stress from life. Less chaos and stress leads to more time and energy for awesome man stuff!

[–]TheGillos7 points8 points  (3 children) | Copy

Right on! Glad you've made steps, stuck with it, and saw results.

The biggest trait of a "loser" is giving up. I respect a homeless person with discipline more than a sloppy, fat, moronic, hedonistic millionaire.

I agree, though Jordan Peterson is a controversial figure, for example he's got kicked off University speaking engagements. Not that that means anything except that he spits some unwelcome truth haha.

He has a podcast that's quite interesting if you want to hear more from him.

Fucking pussys of 2020 cannot handle listening to someones ideas unless it aligns perfectly with their "comfy bubble". The day will come for ever #safespace type gets the squeeze. It wont be me but Ive met too many people with twisted personal agendas.

A guy I work with gets butt hurt daily, "boss, boss, bigboyleggos didnt put the latter back in the yellow box where it belongs"... boss yells across warehouse to me.. "bigboyleggos", guy wants the latter put back in the box, why didnt you put it away?"... me "Im not done with it"...guy "if you are not standing on it, put it back so someone else can use it while your not on it" me as i approach boss & guy with a new fluorescent ballast in my hand "ill put it away after i install this hold up ballast, you know, when im done" guy stomps off muttering "ass hole"... the funny thing is, guy was the one bitching about the light being out....

I disagree with some of the examples in jps book but the overall message & delivery are great. Hes just edgy enough to piss off people like "guy" above.

[–]TheGillos0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I've had to deal with morons like that. I like to play dumb.

"Why do you want me to put the ladder back? I'm still using it, should I put it back then immediately pick it back up again? I have this bulb, do you think I can install it without a ladder, how so? Did we get another ladder I don't know about? Which ladder? This ladder? I don't understand. Back where? There?"

[–]Bigboyleggos0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

2 years ago I was doing this, he would boil, others would snicker if nearby. After a year he started bitching about me teasing him for following SOP to the letter and tried taking it to HR. I looked at Our corp SOP, it has nothing this detailed in it. Most of the rules he bitches about were made by him and he tries to force everyone to follow.

Ive taken him out for beers, he got in over his head with a house project 1.5yrs ago, he was replacing flooring in his old house and a long hall way had a big dip in the floor. He lives a mile from me, I wanted to coax him away from his "bigboyleggos is a selfish asshole and enemy" mindset I offered to take a look. Someone had laminated the wood beam down the center of the house with nice 2"x12"x16' straight grain pine where it failed and added a new jack (adjustable post) under the center of the repair. Fucking perfect code compliant repair. I showed guy how to stretch a string, measure and make furring strips to straighten the subfloor. I was there an hour and guy was thrilled.

Since he invites me to have beers but continues to be a dink at work.....

[–]Elongated_Muskk0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Good stuff. Would you still recommend fasting for somebody who is currently on a bulking/lifting routine? Or is that best left to when I reach my desired weight? I wouldn't want it to kill my gains

[–]imjustaman933 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Apparently fasting is good for growth hormone. What you might fight difficult is eatinng all the calories within such a short eating period. Maybe start with 6/18 to begin with.

[–]Bigboyleggos1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ive worked strenuous jobs for most of my life, like block, concrete & carpentry. Ive always been relativly strong and very able. Ive also had a few pounds to lose for most of my life..... my lifts do not decrease while fasting.

There's a video on YouTube. It may be NSFL for some people. It's a penguin being eaten alive by skuas and seagulls. It's visceral as fuck. Penguin is screeching for its life, getting its guts pulled out its ass as it tries to crawl away from its attackers.

Whenever my motivation gets low, I watch that video. As a reminder never to let death catch up with me prematurely by being unprepared at the wrong moment.

Any time you're having trouble with something, try imaging it in a different way. Words are the building blocks we make our thoughts out of, and they carry all sorts of implications which change the way we think.

You have trouble building discipline. But do you have trouble getting into a habit?

[–]le_wolfe2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Building useful habits builds discipline. A habit might be the smallest unit but its a multiplier.

The more habits you have, the more organized and discplined you become. You don't need to read a book to know that, just do it.

[–]AxP3-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

That’s a great point. If you can consistently do something which is damaging, you can also do what’s better in the long run, although with a caveat. The first takes time, while the second takes time and effort. If you’re not putting effort (the raw material) day in and day out, expect your mind to take you anywhere but to the real answers. The answers are out there in the world. The product stands to be gained after the conditions have been met. Everything else is just irrelevant mental baggage which has no true implications.

[–]Yashugan004 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Perhaps you should realise the truth: it is habits that make you successful. you need discipline to form habits, but it is a means to an end

To summarise the book = replace bad habbits with the good ones.

[–]BestOrNothing0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You should read the book again.

[–]RinkyInky6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Some people work on motivation, they get “pumped” go all out 150% effort for 2 weeks, tire themselves out and give up.

It’s better to go 70% effort for an entire year. An important part of discipline is managing your fatigue and stress levels correctly. Take rest days, have fun, but not excessively, and always go back to your job.

As you see yourself improve and progress, you’ll naturally get hooked on work.

[–]imjustaman932 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

This.

It's a marathon not a sprint.

[–]myfirsttimecoding6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

It’s an internal battle. I wouldn’t say or feel like I’m a very disciplined man but then I am muscular as hell with 6-7 years of lifting.

Day to day it doesn’t feel very disciplined. I want to skip the gym almost every single day. I want to do nothing productive and chill all day everyday.

I just... don’t. I fall into bad habits but usually become mindful because my thoughts start racing and I start planning how to negate the unproductivity with extra work tomorrow. I decide against that and just get the shit I need to do done today.

It probably feels like how you do. A couple days good and a couple days off. As long as you stick to it you will reach your goals. All you can do is try to make it a habit

[–]alltheragepage2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Motivation is fleeting.

Mediate on what you want from your life, and then install an app to remind you to do these things each day.

That will turn them into habits. Habits will get you where you want to go.

I use an app called Habitify. Very simple but very effective, especially on those days you start slipping (which eventually everyone without solid formed habits will do)

[–]Niown2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

mindfulness meditation is the best advice i can give meditate every day for 20 minutes minimum it trains willpower like nothing else i know after some time you become the master of your own monkeyish mind

at my peak i took cold showers everyday meditated for one or more hours worked out regularly and didnt eat any sugar i kinda felt like a god haha i did this also in part because i just like a challenge and am just curious of how far i can push myself before i break down completely (kinda crazy i know)

and its not always about discipline but sometimes about the ressources at your disposal like time and money

i wouldnt expect to be perfect at anything though failure is part of the progress so dont go too hard on yourself just get better this also means starting over after failing and not quit forever

search actualized.org and sam harris on youtube for meditation help

thats all i can think of right now hope it helped

and if you should have questions feel free to ask maybe it helps others too im an idiot at most things but i think i got that discipline thing down fairly ok

[–]TheGoblinTurkey1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It gets easier over time. You will have setbacks and failures, but you'll learn from them as long as you keep a positive mindset.

I used to think I was above average for going to the gym 2-3 times a week. Now I look back and think "man I was a pussy". It's like looking back to school, when at the time the work seemed difficult, but you adapt and grow to the point where now that same amount of work would be trivial for you.

Just remember that your mind is your most valuable tool, be careful who you spend your time around. Laziness is infectious.

[–]huey7641 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

One thing I do to make sure I get my shit done: write under my alarm/calender (on phone) that every Friday at 3:30, i will clean my room/wash my clothes.

In other words, I build habits in witty ways which I know will work for me. This may not work for you, but other things might. Try different things until you find what suits you.

[–]le_wolfe1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Start small. Pick a simple habit like chewing food well or correcting your posture every day.

Once you have that, build it up from there. Whatever you wanna get better at, incorporate it into a regular habit without fail.

This is discipline.

[–]Thinkingard1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I want to know how parents can still get stuff done. I’ve been in quarantine for 4 weeks at home with wife and child and I can’t get anything done other than spring cleaning. I am so drained by the end of the day I don’t even know what goals I want to work. In contrast when I lived by myself I could get a lot done.

I guess other people drain my energy and focus and then I get little done. That being said how do introverted parents get shit done?

Want to get a taste of discipline?

Take a cold shower.

Feel the fear telling you not to get in as you walk into the shower the hesitation of turning the shower head on.

Then once your in the shower feel your body telling you to get out of the cold. Don’t get out. Fight the urge.

Slowly your body will acclimate.

The cycle you go through is the same cycle as any other thing you try to discipline.

Take a cold shower.

Hey, I have OCD. Been dealing with the compulsion of doing different shit than I'm currently at all the time. If I'm reading something serious I'll feel compelled to go click on that shiny reddit icon or annoy the cat sleeping besides me. As a result discipline is tricky.

What I do to keep these things in check is backtracking progress on the same activity: While It's harder to focus on new knowledge or progression, checking up what I just did/read is much easier, keeps engaged in the activity and after a couple seconds, the compulsion goes away and I can focus, plus, I reinforced knowledged by rereading previous parts.

I just started journaling by recommendation of the main subreddit. It helps to track progress.

When your desire is high enough discipline comes quite easy. “When you wanna succeed as bad as you wanna breathe, then you’ll be successful.”

[–]Lateralanouncer0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

From my perspective. Unless you have fucked your brains dopamine level etc. It’s the goal that gives drive. Some successful people work extremely hard because they are lazy. there goal is. one day I will rest. Play golf everyday whatever. It’s the goal that is important. Over time Goals become an obsession that must be reached.

[–]BusterVadge0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I've done pretty well in life. I'm 46, have a great career, great kids, investments, side business, really great luck with younger women.

Want to know how I got here? I fucked up a lot. That's right, a LOT. I've been rejected, laughed at, not taken seriously but you know what? I never gave up and was always willing to learn from my mistakes.

Failure is a good thing. If you learn from it, don't let it fuck with your mindset - it's really not failure at all, just feedback. This is the difference between winners and losers in life.

[–]RedPill_Dragon0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I think of my life and how it will be if I don't change, so I'm very disciplined to work out, clean, improve myself, study....etc. Today, while I was hammering people online, I was cleaning my house and listing my gifts that I'll give to myself if I achieve certain goals. So, I want to pay $20,000 in debt in May, if I do, I 'll give myself a Louis Vuitton backpack and an additional $5000 in savings. I will also allow myself to buy more exercise equipment in June. If I lose 2 more inches off my stomach, I'll allow myself to buy new DJ equipment. I have to wake up at 5 am and run 5K, do 200 squats and 100 pushups. It sucks, honestly, I hate this. But in the end of the day, when I'm thinner, achieved my goals....etc, it's all worth it.

When I was married, my ex made of point to destroy all efforts I had at self improvement. I gained weight and was totally unhappy. It lead to me having cancer later on. Never again!

[–]Baervan0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It’s about having a clear path forward. I have a set of goals which I track. Landing on those take some time and consideration but it’s possible. Then you just make daily steps forward. Anything is progress. I track it using an app. It’s called Discipline.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

There's a million videos and pages about this online, but suggestions from what works for me:

  • Measurable. I like to see the improvements: measured fitness increasing, measured weights increasing.

  • Accountable. Tick boxes on a poster for working out. I can see my success rate and I hate having to put a black cross instead of a green tick.

Pictures of your goals or your competition may or may not help you.

Don't try and loop other people in to motivate you: they'll fail and drag you down.

Realise that putting things off till tomorrow is wasting the productivity of today.

[–]kollegah13370 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

If your goal is to get laid, you can be a complete loser, have nothing going for you at all. Failing all of your classes in school while living with your parents, etc, and you can still be getting more pussy than 99% of guys.

Anyone who tells you that you need "career," "good grades," "passion," "motivation," etc to get laid, doesn't get laid a lot.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
