Red Pill Porn

There is amongst the “no fap” movement a realization that the longer one watches internet porn unrestrained, one ends up progressively seeking more hard core, nasty scenes to get off.

I think there is also a parallel for self improvement.

To get motivated to do something, often a swift kick in the pants is needed. The kick can be a motivational blog post, youtube video, podcast etc by someone who’s already done it.

The feeling is good. You get pumped on the idea of achieving or doing something.

For some this is enough – they’re off.

Others don’t execute. They sink back into their unfulfilled life to consume more sterile information, searching for the next article to spike their emotion. Though like the porn, the next one has to be more raw to get the same kick. Eventually you reach a blog like Bold and Determined and read 30 Days of Discipline. If you read this and don’t execute, you probably never will. You’ll simply endure life until it’s over.

This is a scary realization.
