Attack of the Killer Nothing
by Jay Valens of The Art of the Pickup
February 1st, 2007

If pickup were a “natural resource” like oil or coal, we would all be out there thinking we were depleting that resource every time we talked to a new girl, tried a new attitude, or practiced our communication skills.

In a world where everything seems to be for sale, even water, there is a danger of thinking of everything as a limited resource. There are even oxygen bars now! Yes, we live in a world where now air is literally for sale.

In such a world, it becomes very easy to build up the mentality that opportunities to meet women are limited and there is a risk of “loss” of some kind if an interaction doesn’t pan out. Fear of rejection or bad feelings will create a feeling that there is risk. After all, for the inexperienced or hesitant, it does feel like something is being risked.

The thing is, you can think of pickup like a natural resource, but it’s a resource that’s unlimited, because when you try to meet someone new, nothing is risked, nothing is depleted.

1. Rejection is NOTHING, it destroys nothing

2. Approaching requires NOTHING, it uses no resources and only takes desire and action

3. Fear is a FEELING, and a feeling is not made of anything and can be discarded

Part of what hold back guys from taking action to talk to a girl is the fear of the unknown, not knowing what to say or do next even if taking the first step, or the second, or the third. It is literally, the fear of NOTHING.

Maybe this is part of what holds you back.

When you’ve run into a “stall”, it’s not like there is something tangible lost or anything tangible that will be lost no matter what happens. Nobody has put a price tag on your feet or mouth, and you incur no cost to try something new, say something different.

You can choose to either give up or keep moving forward. If you mover forward, it costs you nothing and no resource is depleted. But if you give up, you do lose something – an opportunity and additional experience.

Those are not tangible things either but they are FAR FAR more valuable resources for your personal life than just about anything else.

It costs you nothing to push forward. It costs you a lot to give up.

Did I overdo this analogy just yet?…

OK, imagine you are a steam train… HA HA… OK I will spare you any more of these analogies, I think you understand by now.

So, just realize when you’re confronted with hesitation, there really IS “nothing” to worry about.

No go out there and meet some girls. There’s nothing to it…
