The #1 Way To Get What You Want

Subj: How to get what you want, action takers vs. action fakers, becoming superdriven, action vs. excuse


Hello Friends,

There is a secret to getting what you want. An open secret that I will share with your right now. The secret is this:

To get what you want all you have to do is take it.

If you ask permission for what you want you are going to be denied. If you don’t need permission you cannot be denied.

Hey, do you think I can? Hey, is it ok if I do this? Hey, is it possible for me to win this time? Ok, sorry for asking. I would never break the rules. Thanks. Sorry for asking.

Winners don’t think the rules apply to them. And they are right. The rules of the game only apply to those who are willing to abide by the rules. The guy with the #1 beside his name is the guy who did what it took to get there. He used every damn trick in the book and he broke all the rules and then he took what he wanted. He is the one who out-thought his opponents.

Playing by the rules is for losers. The rules are there to make sure you do not rise up. Playing by the rules is the same thing as doing the minimum. You cannot do the minimum to achieve maximum results. To get maximum results you have to produce maximum action. If you play by the rules then you aren’t trying very hard. If you’re playing by the rules then you have turned off your brain and you’re coasting on auto-pilot. Winners do what it takes to win, they do better than their best and they’re always a step or two ahead.

“but but but but that’s cheating! but but but but but that’s not fair! but but but but I want to win I just don’t want to do anything above and beyond, I don’t want to do anything differently than what the rules say!”

Fairness and equality are for the lessers who cannot TAKE so they want to be GIVEN. They stand with their fucking hands out expecting a medal. They stand with their fucking hands out expecting the same results as the men who took action. They stand with their fucking hands out crying for more equality for them and less for you. They stand with their fucking hands expecting you to give them “equality”.

They want to scavenge your kill, like the Hyena scavenges the Lion’s kill. They want praise for being inferior. They expect that by playing by the rules they’ll be given the same gifts as the men who took action. They expect inaction to provide the same result as action and when they aren’t provided the same result they demand equality and fairness for everyone. Which means fairness and equality for them, and a handicap for the already capable. They don’t even want to take from you, they want you to give.

This works to your advantage. While everyone is standing around with their damn hands out waiting for a miracle you can go grab opportunity, take advantage, break the rules and come out on top.

Rule breakers are action takers.

If you want something it’s time to put your hands down, put your thinking cap on and figure out how to get it. There’s a way to do everything. Put yourself into SUPERDRIVE. Make a plan of action and stick to it. You may feel something on your feet. “Hmmm, what’s that on my feet? Oh, those are hands trying to pull me down. Let me just kick those away and go about my business“.

Action fakers. Action fakers are the excuse makers. The ones that “could have done the same thing, if they wanted to”. The one’s that cry about this and that and why they aren’t ahead. If they wanted something and they could have done it then they would have done it.

Action takers. Actions takers figure out a way to accomplish their goal. They don’t cry about cheating or why they lost. They plan, visualize, take action and then grab what they want.

Pick your choice. 

  1. Make excuses about why you don’t have it – If you aren’t prepared to take action you can be rest assured that another man is prepared. You could have done the same thing he did, but you have chosen not to. But hey, at least you stood strong and didn’t break the rules. At least you’re morally superior. At least you’re better at doing what you’re told to do.
  2. Figure out a way to do it and then take what you want – The only real option. If you want something you plan for it, you visualize it, you take action and then you grab it. That’s mine. Give me that. What the knucklehead losers think of your actions is of no consequence. If you want it, friend, you damned sure will find a way to get it. If you want it you will take it. No excuses, no whining and no crying. Just killing.

    What is the difference between a man and a parasite?
    A man builds. A parasite asks ‘Where is my share?’
    A man creates. A parasite says, ‘What will the neighbors think?’
    A man invents. A parasite says, ‘Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God… ‘

  2. Selfmade says

    The rules are for the fooles.

    If you want something do what you need to so to get it and keep it.
    That’s what Winners do they don’t ask they just do it.

    Great post as always.

    I’ve found this post is spot on. If you ask for permission it will generally be denied. So just do it anyway. There’s so many rules these days it’s untrue.

    I have a good rant in my latest blog post about rules.

    Always love your work victor. Keep up the good work.

    Victor, I’m new to your site. The short time that I’ve reviewed the information here has reiterated simple truths to me that, deep down, I always knew to be true. However, it took your bold outlook and blunt words to reaffirm these ideas.

    This is an excellent post and nothing but the truth. Admittedly, I’ve been an action faker my whole life, controlled by the power of fear and self doubt. It wasn’t until the last few years that I started seeking some real answers and taking an honest look at my reality, or rather the illusion I call reality.

    One of the most profound realizations that I’ve had is, the brainwashing we incur from an early age does a number on us. It isn’t until you wake up one day, tired and frustrated, sick of the life you live, wondering why you continue to live untruthfully, seeing people living better and more fulfilling lives than you, that is the catalyst for introspection that ultimately lifts the blinders over your eyes, revealing the big pile of shit you’re living in.

    The good thing is, as GI JOE would say, “knowing is half the battle”. You can’t fight what you can’t identify. I’ve identified the various factors, external and internal, that shape the world I occupy. With this knowledge, I can stop the shit from flying into my face.

    It’s empowering to hear things that “click” in my mind and motivate me. I can’t articulate into words the benefit I derive from your writings. Well, I could, but I wouldn’t be able to describe how appreciative I am. So you can settle for a very sincere thank you.

    This is a place of…..healing, for lack of a better word. I think of this site akin to a sanctuary. It’s a place I feel I can learn to rediscover myself; that’s a great feeling.

    I’m 30 this year and I feel like my life is just beginning. And how appropriate that I begin my “new life” with a brand new outlook and a solid set of ideals. From here on out, my mind is wide open. Nothing is out of my reach, provided I believe that.

    “I want the world and everything in it.”

    Thank you, Victor.

    – Greg

    Another great and inspiring post!
    For many years i have been under the illusion that “going by the rules” was a good thing to do. So all my life i followed the rules and little by little i have begun to realize that living your life like this is just bullshit. Now that i’m older and wiser i have become aware that i could do more with my life. I have been reading your posts for a few months and it has given me the power to achieve more. After getting your Spartan Entrepreneur Guide i too started my own Word Press blog and slowly but surely i plan to monetize it and have it earn some money and already i have gotten a lot of my articles on the first page of Google and Bing.

    How do you get what you want? You go and get it!!

  6. says

    I agree with you a 110% on this one. I follow the rules long ago and, of course, got plowed right in the ass like an idiot. But it was good because I learned a much valuable and needed lesson that has served me immensely well ever since. Good stuff!

  7. NYCBachelor says

    Hey Vitor, love your site. Agree with this post 100%, if you’re not cheating- you’re not trying.

    Ultimately, the truth that most men refuse to face down is that “morality” as they understand it is nothing more then a mental program designed to mentally cripple them in the game of life- to keep them as slaves for the “masters” who follow a completely different code of ethics and laugh at their “morality”.

    That being said, I read a post on your site that recommended a pro-hormone that has since been made illegal. I’m looking to take my lifting “to the next level” and I’m wondering if you have any new recommendations? Should one try pro-hormones first, or should one go right for the “real” thing and find a way to get it?

      If you’re an American like your name would indicate then you will know I cannot give you any tips in this manner.

    Hello Vic!

    really love this site. Downloaded it some days ago and i´m reading everyday since then on it, as i don´t have Internet at Home (every man should shut it down for at least some days/week).
    No PC you just say what i think since years.

    I guess I have a new startsite! Keep this great site going on!

    regards from Germany!

    Hey Victor,

    Just wanted to say thanks. This blog was exactly the kick in the ass I needed to start getting my life together. I don’t agree with everything you post, but you don’t give a fuck about that. I admire that. It’s one skill I need to work on. Keep up the good work.

    P.S. I’m not surprised you’re a badass. You’d have to be with a name like Victor Pride.
