I have decided to get strong. Cosmetic strong.
I have always been fit and healthy. I do a good amount of running around in my day to day life, keep a reasonably healthy diet and cycle regularly which ticks over a minimum dose of physical activity. However, I have never been strong, so time to have a crack at bulking up and seeing how that feels!

Assume Long Term Commitment for a greater level of success. Do it – and know that you are going to keep doing it. You will not fail, you will not drop out, you will keep going. You know it!
Focus on the Long Term
Merely deciding you’re committed for the long-term vs the short-term dramatically increases progress and improvement.
Via The Talent Code: Greatness Isn’t Born. It’s Grown. Here’s How:
The differences were staggering. With the same amount of practice, the long-term-commitment group outperformed the short-term-commitment group by 400 percent.

One of the problems with dating is where the hell do you go? Now living in London there are countless options… but here is an unusual one… use a business environment to start out with!
As a man you want to be smooth, slick and powerful. As much as we like to ignore it, having money helps – and being seem to be a “man of means” definitely helps! Regus the office company offer their Gold members unlimited access to their business lounges and hot desks as part of the membership (as well as the add hoc offices by the hour at a discounted rate). The have offices all over the world, London, Manchester to Thiland! Most importantly for you Londoners they have several locations in london.
Once in the lounge there are sofas, desks and normally a few computers. Free tea and coffee is available and the setting is very corporate with big screens on the walls showing the news etc etc, all pretty plush. This is the office room I used the other day for a 2 hour meeting I had – it was board room style and made me feel pretty cool!
Meet a girl there
When you meet a girl you want her to enter your world. Meeting a girl here really does do this, especially if you can get her to come to you. The place is entry ONLY for members, so you will have to pick her up at the door and acompany her into the space. After that take her to your comphy chair where you have been working on your laptop/iPad whatever (not waiting for her at all), get her a free coffee and start the date there. If you like her, then go some where else for a change of environment
Test is for Free!
Wanna try it? Well you can do that now by getting a 6 month free member ship card right now. Just use the details below to sign up. Personally I use the places a bit between meetings or if I have a couple of hours to kill in London between things. It is pretty handy for that – but I think that the value it adds if you are on a date is excellent!

HOW TO MEET THE GIRL OF YOUR DREAMS (FOOLPROOF)
Buy a falconer’s glove.
Approach the girl you like wearing the falconers glove.
Ask her “Excuse me, have you seen a falcon fly by here?”
Look up to the sky, hopeful/sad.
If she says “No,” look distraught and ask her if she wouldn’t mind helping you look for your falcon.
No human being would ever turn down an opportunity like this.
Use the time you spend together searching for the falcon to get to know her.
At the end of your search (10 minutes) you will probably need consoling re: the loss of your one true friend.
By this point her interest in you based on the fact that you were able to put so much love and time into the raising of a falcon will more than ensure a second date, and from there it’s just a hop skip and a jump to marriage.
*NOTE: If by chance a falcon does appear out of nowhere, simply say ” (falcon’s name) I’ve missed you so much! Don’t ever scare me like that again!” Then offer to take the girl to dinner for helping you find your lost falcon. Bonus: You just got a free falcon!
