If there’s one surefire way to tell if you’re a beta, it’s an unwillingness to do things you want to do that might “cost you.” You want that badass tattoo on your hand, but you’re a
business major and are afraid it might hurt your job prospects. You want to troll the feminist chick spouting inane platitudes, but you’re afraid it might lower your cred with the two mediocre girls around her. You’re worried about what mom thinks, or what corporate America thinks or what the cute barista at the coffee shop across from work might think. There’s one way to remedy this: stop giving a damn.
So many men watched Fight Club and for the time they viewed it they felt invigorated and emboldened, then as soon as the credits rolled they fantasized about starting a little fight club with their friends. Ten minutes passed and they were once again the “khaki’s they wore,” so to speak. The sissies couldn’t even join a boxing gym, and they immediately went back to caring about what The Man thought about everything and buying his Asian-slave-made goods through wages made at their office-slave jobs, mere cogs in the materialist machine.
Get the damn tattoo, say the thing you want to say to the shrike in English class and get a job on your own terms, not the Hivemind’s terms. The rebellion from the Hivemind, or “Cathedral,” starts with the individual. Play life by your rules and the rules laid out by God, not the rules laid out by mere men. That’s the real key to breaking out of the beta mindset and becoming a more courageous person. The side effects are:
Getting more of what you want in life.
Getting more attention from women, or positive attention from your woman.
Being happier because you’re not yearning and wishing to do what you want to do, but actually doing it.
