I don’t normally rain on people’s parades, but when it’s a pity parade I like to intervene. I was checking my Facebook newsfeed today when I came across a post by a local nightclub owner. The back story on this guy is that he constantly posts negative crap about not getting the girl he wants and how he hates other men for having better “game”. Usually I let his posts go, but this time I decided to chime in. The interaction that followed seemed like a perfect point to touch on for my blog.

People pay lip service to the old adage that money doesn’t buy happiness, but I’ve discovered that a growing segment of the population genuinely believes that money can create happiness. They also think that getting the right romantic partner will make them happy. It’s time for some tough love.
I know this from experience. When I moved to Austin I had a great job. I worked in corporate sales, and was on the fast track to a 7 figure bank account (that’s millions if you aren’t good at math). With all of that money you’d think I’d be happy, right? Wrong. I was miserable. I hated my job, mainly because I wasn’t creating real value. So I quit the job, and now I make far less money. I’ve never regretted my choice to leave that job. My life is the best it’s ever been.
When I became a pickup artist I did all of the shitty things that pickup artists do. I had a lot of sex, with a lot of women, and in a lot of weird scenarios. Most guys dream of the life I’ve lived. That’s because they don’t know how bad it was. I wasn’t satisfied because I was trying to find lasting happiness in a temporary high. I was no different than a drug addict, but TV and magazines glamorized my addiction.
Don’t get me wrong, being healthy is a great way to increase happiness, but having a hot body isn’t happiness in itself. Need examples? How about your stereotypical anorexic runway model? Society has painted her to be the picture of feminine perfection, yet she lives in a state of constant anxiety. She stresses about her weight, wrinkles, and the next pretty young thing that will take her place.
