Hey guys,

I am currently working on my personal code and mission, based on the chapters in The Unchained Man, by BD. If you have seen my posts in the “Women/Relationship Management” forum, you will see why I can benefit from it. I’ve got some one it is to cure and may be focusing my life entirely too much on women. I have a great paying job, hobbies, friends, and women, but I am still lacking that overarching “mission” to drive me to new heights.

Two areas I am focusing on are music (I play guitar) and comedy - I love to make people laugh and am pretty good at it, but I haven’t figured out how to apply that to a mission. My mission won’t necessarily cover both areas, but I am focusing on those in particular because I think they are good ways to give back to the world, too.

I just wanted to see if anyone wanted to share their story on how they found their mission, as it may be inspirational to me and anyone else who is starting down this path.

I would love to hear your stories and process.

—Dan

A lot of people think that a mission needs to be earth shattering, like if they don't make serious history, that it isn't a real mission or something.

This is absurd, and a mission has nothing to do with any of that stuff.

Take BD himself for example, his mission is making sure more dudes go from omega, beta, or alpha 1 to Alpha 2 and that's it. He wants to people to achieve the same stuff he did in less time than he took to do it. He says it in his podcasts: He wants one million dudes to adopt the Alpha 2 lifestyle.

As for me, I want to work with incels and other guys who feel like they could be incels. I want to also take people out of the toxicity of the constant threat of massive groupthink and get people to live on their own terms and deal with the impending shaming from peers without having it affect their mental health. I use my writing and my epiphanies to do this.

My mission is to get people "ready" to start on their journey to being Alpha 2 by getting them to master the art of enjoying their own company, something that a lot of us desperately need in this new world of social media which has turned our world into a giant high school.

I'm not trying to change the world or something, I just want to send the message that learning how to enjoy your own company is going to be very important going into the 2020s.

Hi Dan,

I also play the guitar and I write songs. One of my missions is to reach people with my music and make them think about societal programming, make them think about the world etc. When I play the guitar, write a song etc it's therapy for me. Many people told me they feel it's therapy for them to listen to my music. So that's win-win. Have you tried writing your own songs? If that's not your some peops do covers on youtube and you can even move people with covers. If it's original and authentic. Perhaps you could combine music and comedy. I do the same. People told me I should be a stand-up comedian. So I took my creative skills and wrote parodies to hit songs, and plan to release them on my YouTube channel. Perhaps this is something you could do, or not, only you can tell. These things fulfill me and I feel I'm doing my mission.

I have a visceral hatred at seeing the unfairness of people brought low by illness, mental/physical/old age, having limitations set on thier life. Avoidable for the most part, so healthcare has always been my game. Fuck illness gents, access to basic healthcare is a human right.

Healthcare is selfcare and is innate. People know how to care for themselves, they choose not to though.

No one avoiding the gym or eating fast food daily genuinely thinks they're doing something positive.

Governments don't dictate human rights... people do that to themselves and each other.

Strongly disagree with that first point in a lot of cases (not all). The amount of conflicting info out there is daunting to a non specialist. Honestly even some of the advice regularly given out by professionals on the regular even 5 years ago has been shown to be actively harmful to people's health (hell I know I did it). You need a goddamn masters degree in a biological related field to keep up with the changes in healthcare right now (to be fair there does seem to be a new explosion of bloggers who only blog to break down new interesting studies into easy to follow advice, very bueno). I know the usual go to is to point out smokers and obese fellas, I get it, but I figure there's some room for nuance there.

Hey, world would be a boring place if we all had the same opinions on all this shit. But I want to see all of you fellas fuckin' and pumping iron in your 70's, that's my aim. It's possible ;)

You're describing the same thing I did.

Healthcare, put another way, is taking care of your health, not the system itself. Next time I'll be clear about that. Knowing how to take care of yourself is a natural instinct we all have, but few actually respect and listen to on a daily, hourly basis.

Stop listening to people and respond accordingly to what your body is telling you, and you'll never go wrong. Applies to more than just food as well.

I get the sentiment, and I'm always on-board for the old n=1 experiment, but I'd be out at least two jobs if that was true :D
