Example text

You have to have confidence. I’ve discussed this briefly several times over the last few chapters but I thought it would be beneficial to dedicate a whole chapter to this one subject—confidence. Confidence is important in anything you do in life. Whether it’s asking a girl out on a date, interviewing for a job or taking a test, confidence matters. Without confidence, it’s hard to muster up the courage to go through with anything. Without confidence, a guy stays a boy and never transforms into a man.

You have to realize that no one is really going to build you You have to have confidence. 51 up and give you that confidence you lack. It has to come from within. You have to call it up and learn how to use it. So, how do you do this? How you gain some confidence? It’s easy. You become the best version of you that you can be. That includes doing any self-improvement you have to do to get yourself up there with the rest of the confident men. But the most important aspect of all of this is knowing that you are worth it.

You have to keep in mind that it’s okay to fail. We live in a country where it seems as though failing is the worst possible thing you could ever do. But if this were true, there would probably never be any “new and improved” items on the market or any divorced people remarrying. Failure is a must to life because failure lets us know what we’re doing wrong and how we can improve. Failure is our guidepost to the future. So, when you start going out and dating, keep this in mind. It might take you a few tries to meet a girl who says “yes” to going out with you.
