A Man Needs Danger and Play

A Man needs many things life but if two are to stand out those are Danger and Play.


Dear readers, it has been a long time since you’ve last heard of me.


My schedule has been, to put it mildly, Hell.


Being an intern within the healthcare industry and also studying for multiple brutal exams at the same time drained all of my energy. Besides that I also did not neglect my gym schedule or my reading list.


I will have to make a confession and say that there were numerous times when I’ve wanted to give up.


I’d be up at 5 AM to make it to the Gym quick enough in order to get the workout in because I knew that when I came home from work that I would not have neither the energy or motivation to do it then.


I’d come home, kiss my girlfriend, make a homemade smoothie and run to the library to study. Between study breaks I would read books from Scott Adams’s Persuasion Reading list (which I heartily recommend everyone to do, if you wish to gain a better understanding about the World around you (I am currently reading The Secret of Selling Anything by Harry Browne)) and do posture exercises which are phenomenally described by Mike Cernovich and in Presence by Amy Cuddy.


At about 10.30 PM I’d call it a day, go home, prepare everything for the next day and rinse and repeat.


Let me be frank with you – I thought I was slowly going mad.


My mind was stretched to its utmost limits already and besides that I was also working on a project which I’ll present you now here. It was a project of love and hate at the same for would I have not been doing Gorilla Mindset exercises it would never have seen the light of day.


But this is what separates the winners from the losers.


The determination to get pulverized into dust and forcing yourself, by sheer Goddamned will, back together in order to have another bout with Life.


Because this is what Living means: either you impose your will upon Life or Life will impose its will on you. There is no discussion to be had – you, me, each and every one of us is in the Ring.


Will you fight? Or get beaten into a bloody pulp? The choice is yours.


It’s dangerous to choose but once you get a taste of blood, the adrenaline rush of fighting for dear survival… getting beaten, avoiding a fatal attack in the last moment, win a round – it becomes an addiction.


Yes, the dangerous becomes like a game which is fun to play.


A Man Needs Danger and Play.

Danger and Play.


I’d like to thank all of you who are currently reading this.


As a token of my thanks I’d like to present you with a gift.


I’ve compiled all of Michael ‘Mike’ Cernovich’s work from 2016 into a PDF document for you to read within your leisure time.


It took me 3 months, from the beginning of December to the end of February to collect everything, proofread it to the best of my abilities and polish it to a mirror shine.



To date this has been my biggest project I’ve ever undertaken, but not my last. I assure you.


This is a work of a student. Yes, I consider myself a student of Mike’s ways. I do not always agree with everything what my teacher (who probably does not even know of my existence ha-ha) says but I consider this to be a good thing.


Friction causes new ideas to be spawned.


But even so I respect Mike deeply and will, to the end of my days, credit him for being one of the saviors during my darkest of days. Yes, I do believe that without him I would not be breathing today.


Gorilla Mindset does indeed have such power.


And such power is before you right now.


This document contains all of Mike’s posts from 2016, every single one of them which is not a simple RSVP for an event.


Over 400 articles.

Over 220.000 words.

Over 1.000.000 letters of Raw Masculine Wisdom.




With intact Hyperlinks to view images if you are connected to the internet.


Available at your fingertips.


One might inquire as to ‘Why would you do this?’ and it’s a good question, because believe me, when everything went wrong (and it did, numerous times) I asked myself constantly:


‘Why the Hell are you doing this?’


I felt being trapped in a corner with nowhere to go, my mind like it was licking cold metal for how fatigued it felt, my muscles cramping all over so that I needed to stand up every 15 minutes to do a Power Pose.


I was hungry but could not force myself to open the fridge and get a bite to eat, thirsty but not motivated enough to get a glass of water.


My relationships strained because I’ve yet to learn how to handle such pressures more efficiently.


‘Why, why, why, why, why am I doing this?’

‘Because I have to, that is why.’

‘Because I want to, that is why.’

‘I want to gather everything what Mike wrote in order to learn and apply what I’ve learned to him.’

‘And I wish to give others the same chance. I wish to give them a chance to make the most important choice they will ever make in their lives.’

‘The choice to make their lives better – starting today.’


Because what lays before you is not a simple file. It is a promise and a guarantee I am willing to make – here and now.


If you will read and apply what you’ve read you will have a better understanding of the World, better Health, sharper Looks, improved Finances, improved Relationships and what is most important…


A Mindset which you will use in order to reach goals before thought impossible.


Dear Reader!

I’m about to enter another round with Life in Hell.


It will take a while and I’ll come back battered and with bruises.


But underneath the swollen meat you’ll see my smile.


Bloodied but determined.


Because this is the Danger and Play way.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavors!


Until then!
