Subj: Winning the game of life
I've stopped calling myself a professional blogger. I don't write that often, I don't write about the news, I don't do reviews and I don't even consider myself a writer.
Here is everything I do to make money: I live life like a man and then I put what I do into words. You boys read it, become inspired and hopefully go out into the world and kick it's fucking ass just like I do.
I don't write for the guy who is going nowhere and happy with that, I write for the guy who is halfway there, or 25% there and wants 100%. If you don't want it (success) then I don't want you here and I don't want your money.
Bold and Determined is for winners and future winners only. Bold and Determined is an elitist website and I'm very proud of that. You'll never find advertisements for garbage here, you'll never find links to products that are garbage and you will never see some nonsense, filler articles. If I don't have anything good to say then I won't say anything.
Fortunately for me I've built my business in such a way that I don't need to constantly write new articles. If I want to take time off and, say, go visit Bali I'll just go and do it and not have to worry about how to fund it.

What I do works because I'm the real deal and my life is awesome.
Can you do the same?
Of course. If you put in the effort.
Here's a recent email I got from an aspiring badass….
Hey Victor. Me again. After reading almost all your blog posts and ebooks I find I want to be just like you as far as an alpha male and successful entrepreneur. And I'm taking steps to do so but as far as business goes I'm having trouble. I started a blog and the premise is similar to yours. I want to inspire the masses. I'm no expert like you nor am I where I want to be in life but I want to make a blog like yours. That's the problem. I can't out do your blog, nor would I want to – it's amazing. But you can't tell me starting a niche bullshit blog like food trucking could be the least bit fulfilling. I want a blog similar in goal to yours but I don't want to be a rip off or copycat. Any tips?
Yeah, pal. I got some tips for you. Grab a coffee and get to reading.
Live like a man
You can't be a badass if you aren't a man. So that's your first step, live life like a man.
A lot of people will take offense to that, but that's because a lot of people are pussies.
Men don’t “take offense”. Men take action and there’s a big difference.
I was just talking to an American here in Bangkok who accidentally bumped into a Russian at a market. One thing lead to another, the American yelled “fuck Russia!”, so the Russian spit in his face, punched him in the mouth and kicked his ass. Whoops.
When you mouth off to a man you get whooped. When men “take offense” you get whooped.
When women and dickless men take offense they run and tattle-tale to their employer, the police, the internet, the government, anyone with power.
See, the easily offended always lack a few things: strength, character, pride and most of all they completely lack self-sufficiency.
Men personally take care of their problems. Females and cowards cannot do that, but men can.
Anonymous internet wimps often accuse me of being a sexist or a misogynist.
As if words hurt me. As if I would apologize for offending a coward. As if I would try and prove I'm every bit as feminine as they are.
Ain’t gonna happen, boys. Words only hurt cowards, remember that. If you're offended at words your testosterone to estrogen balance is messed up and you're either a girl or acting like a girl.
As for being labeled a sexist, well, when it's acceptable to hit a woman or when prisons become co-ed that's when I'll start to believe in the mental illness known as “equality”.
Until then I am going to believe what my eyes tell me: Men and women are fundamentally different.
Men are physically stronger and women are natural care takers. Men provide the resources and women nurture. Subvert this and you have nations of lost and crazy souls.
No matter what the confused little boys and girls pretend, women aren't men and never will be.
All the grown-up little boys who continually emasculate themselves and all the grown-up little girls who behave like sailors can't change biology.
Today's modern American woman acts like a cunt because men allow her to, and those men allow her to because they are complete and utter wimps.
Let me give you an example….
I know an American couple, middle aged and married for a few years. The husband works like a dog to pay the bills and the wife doesn't work.
One day the man came home from a hard day's work ready for dinner. The wife had been not-so-busy watching television all day.
The wife said to him “I didn't feel like cooking today so we're just going to have leftovers“.
The husband replied, head hanging low, “OK, honey. Sounds great“.
At the end of dinner the man took his plate to the sink, rinsed it and put it in the dishwasher while the woman sat at the table doing nothing.
It was absolutely pathetic and my reaction was utter disbelief.
This is what “equality” has done to men, turned them into giant sissies.
When males act like broken dogs it disgusts me, just like it secretly disgusts their nagging wives.
Look fellas, living like a woman just isn't an option so forget about it. Millions of “men” have chosen this option at their peril, learn from their pathetic mistake and live like a man without remorse.
The internet queens can call me sexist all they like, frankly it's a compliment coming from them.
I don’t take offense to being called a sexist any more than I take offense to being called a tall, handsome badass with green eyes and a 100-watt smile.
Guilty as charged on all counts!
But you know what the funny thing is?
No one ever has a bad word to say to me in real life. Only online.
I wonder why?
The last time Victor Pride was spotted in the wild.
It sure was me.
I'm still waiting for someone, anyone, to call me out in real life and tell me how much of a meanie I am.
Money and Balls
Westerners always say to me “money isn't everything, man“.
To which I reply “I know, dork. You need money and balls to be a man“.
When you have both you are 100% complete, if you have one or the other you are 50%, if you have neither you are nothing.
If you have money but you don't have balls you're an ATM, a eunuch, a schlub, like the married man I told you about above.
You need both money and balls to be a complete man.
I'm able to live the life I live, without a leash, simply because of money and balls. I have money, I have balls, I use them to get what I want.
What's more important, money or balls?
Balls are more important. If you've got balls you can make money, but money can't buy you balls if you're a wimp.
Only balls will buy you love, for everything else there is money.
As far as I'm concerned if you are broke and you aren't actively doing anything to fix your situation you aren't a man.
Men have money or men work, build and achieve until they have money. There isn't an in-between. You're an achiever, a man, or you aren't.
Victor, do you have an example?
I'm so glad you asked. Yes, I do have an example.
I was recently in Bali, Indonesia. I was at a restaurant with my little girl, my little helper bee, my little chef, my little maid, my little angel.
We were at a BBQ restaurant. I was waiting on my whole roasted chicken, she was waiting on her grilled prawns.
At another table was a white, western man, an Asian woman and a toddler (race unknown).
Eventually, the woman got up to pay the bill, the man carried the baby to the car, the man put the baby in the car seat, the man got in the passenger seat, the woman got in the drivers seat and they drove away.
My little girl looked at me in a weird way and said “I've never seen that before. Maybe he's the woman and she's the man” and we both had a big laugh.
We ate our food. I paid. I got on the motorcycle, turned it on, revved it up, she got on behind me and we went back to the poolside villa.
While she was massaging my feet that night I was I wondering how a male could emasculate himself so much without even realizing it.
I wondered: How could you be an adult in years but a child in mindset. How could you be a man but allow yourself to be kept by a woman. How could you be a Mr. Mom and not feel pathetically embarrassed at your situation?
In my household I pay the bills. All of them. Fresh food is prepared for me daily. I haven't cooked or cleaned a dish in years and I never will out of principle.
That's because I have two things…
Money and balls.
If you've got balls you're half-way there, but read this 2 part statement carefully:
If you are broke and not doing anything to fix your financial situation you aren't a man.
So sorry to bear the bad news, friend, but if you don't have money and if you aren't working to fix that then you are a loser, an adult-child.
Being broke is OK, but never trying to fix the situation is not OK. Men fix their problems.
I know the language is harsh, but language only hurts you if you don't have any balls.
So how do you fix that money situation?
Start a business, one business, and focus 100% on that business
If I've said it once I've said it a million times…
Focus on one thing only. Use your energy on one thing only.
Multi-tasking will get you a whole lot of nothing. No one ever got wealthy from multi-tasking, you get wealthy from building a business, not by starting 10 of them.
Being scatter-brained will not bring the money into the bank, FOCUS will bring the money into the bank.
The overhead is tiny, the profit margins can be huge and the sky is the limit.
Not everyone can make money from a blog, just the baddest of the bad, but anyone with a triple digit IQ can open an online store and sell things.
Look around you right now. Everything you own was sold to you. Everything you can see right now is for sale so there are no lack of opportunities, only lack of will.
Just a few weeks ago I bought a bunch of new supplements from Ebay to try out.
The owner of the Ebay store sent me this message out of the blue…
See boys, there's a fella getting after it and making money. That guy made over $200 from me personally and now he's probably going to have a jump in sales (FYI – zinc increases testosterone and semen volume. I take 150mg daily).
He's making money, why can't you do what he is doing?
What's so hard about taking the initiative and ordering some supplements from China, ordering some packaging, designing some labels, opening a store and making some money?
Or selling one of millions of other products…
The only acceptable answer here is “Yeah, you're right Vic. It's time to cut out the bullshit and get after it“.
Until next time.
