The Mack lifestyle can get complicated. It has its highs and lows; valleys and peaks. To navigate it takes a great deal of self-control – mental and emotional control. You have to stay in a constant state of “emotional neutral”. This means that you can never allow yourself to get too irritated, too upset, feel overly secure, lack patience, get complacent, avoid facing problems or allow dissapointments to throw you off your Game. This level of self-control is a MUST.
Let me back up for those who may not be familiar with the term. What is a Mack? Well if I had to give a simple and brief definition: a Mack is a genuine MAN. He has Standards, Principles, ethics, morals and integrity. He’s also takes responsibility for both his successes and failures; both are the results of his decisions and actions. There’s no one else to blame but himself because a Mack doesn’t take the victim role.
He is a dominant force in life and in his romantic relationship(s). Because of this, he finds himself constantly challenged by what he’s going after in life and what’s going on around him.
On the surface, Macking a woman is not much different than “square” dating. A square is an average person – someone who doesn’t possess Game. Like the regular dating process, you meet people, get to know them, sparks sometimes fly and the situation becomes more personal. And like most dating scenarios, things run good and then SOMETHING happens; usually something unexpected.
This SOMETHING could be a change of heart; life obligations getting in the way; family and friends may get in the way; old boyfriends become an issue; old baggage from past relationships halt progress; and the list goes on and on.
Add in the fact that a Mack is progressive and has requirements for the women in his life, romantic relationships become even more complex requiring careful management.
Dealing with these problems over time can wear a man down. It’s adventurous, it can be fun, but it’s also a path filled with disappointments. This is why a Mack must stay in “emotional neutral”. Sometimes you want to finally win, but instead you find yourself suffering loss after loss. It's a nuisance! No question.
Take for example, just over these past 5 months I’ve met some pretty outstanding women (and some not so outstanding). 1-by-1 they fell by the wayside. Things start out good, then SOMETHING happens. Even some women from my past have suddenly popped back up.
Long story short, only 1 Lady remains. If that doesn’t work out then I’ll return to “search mode” to do it all over again:
All of this with the experiences to know that 5 times out of 10, nothing is going to come of it – except maybe a new friend; which is fine because I enjoy the company of women. You have to apply mental fortitude to blow past dissapointment.
So, what’s a Mack to do? Knowing that focused effort ALWAYS pays off, all I can do is process my thoughts and emotions, pick my head back up and throw myself back in the frying pan.
You see, I get what I want. I always do. No matter how long it takes, no matter the struggles, no matter the disappointments, no matter set-backs – eventually I ALWAYS get what I want. I don’t fold, I function.
This reminds me of a quote, “Anything worth something is worth struggling for,” and any real Player knows, you’re GOING to struggle. Even a seed has to fight its way out of the dirt to get sunlight.
I pay my dues, I learn, I grow and I keep moving forward. Plus I do my best not to carry baggage of past experiences into new ones; it just unnecessarily complicates matters. None of these disappointments affect me for long because I stay in emotional neutral. You can’t control everything, some things you just have to accept and let be.
What does 2017 hold for a Mack? I don’t know exactly. I do know 1 thing however, I will stay in motion and I’m ready for all the ups and downs that might be headed my way. How can you appreciate the good if there isn’t any bad? I welcome it all because ALL of it gets me closer and closer to what I want – and I know exactly what I want. How about you?
