TESTIMONIALS 2018-05-08T02:34:06+00:00

“The video series on the burdened life really resonated with me, as I just finished my pPh.D.at the time of ordering the course and the run up to the viva was really hard work. Even though I have achieved many things (fluent in 4 languages, lived in 6 different countries for more than 6 months often years, two masters degrees and a phd ) fulfillment always seemed elusive and it often felt like I was doing things to please others. This course was a great starting point for me to take control of my emotions and happiness.

First, there was a lot of small things that were really helpful like the advice on having a jolt in the morning followed by working out. I was lifting semi-regularly before usually after work but things always seemed to get in the way. This is a small thing but it actually did wonders for my adherence and I packed on a lot of muscle without thinking about it :slightly_smiling_face: it just became a habit I can easily maintain. Other stuff on automation and outsourcing were really helpful as well.

Probably the biggest thing was the training on the true vs false selves, which I didn’t expect to be honest. I think the course was a great intro to this topic and I am looking forward to exploring it more starting with the recommended readings. I can definitely feel that sometimes different parts of me want different things and are pulling me in different directions and I think the way it is presented is a great way to think about it.

What I really like is that by going through the course I have awareness of these things but as I can access them any time I can go back and work on them and progress at my own pace.

Cheers—Máté.


“Hello David Tian, Thank you for invincible lessons that you provided. With the lessons I learned in module 1, it has changed the ever outcome of my everyday life such as my career and social life. I used to see my job depressing and tiring but thanks to your vision guide it helps me look to a better probability in my life. But only if I’m willing to take the first move and learn how to appreciate the value the outcome even if a small step. Thanks again.—Jose B.


“David, I am blown away. I started your courses a few months ago, and just reviewed my pre-program survey which I filled in when I started. 8 out of 9 of my sticking points are not an issue for me anymore. I’ve met all 8 of these goals. There was even some improvement in the ninth one. I haven’t even looked at the survey since I started. Some of these short-term sticking points were due to core neediness. My neediness is all gone because I learned how to meet those needs from within… Most of my new goals that got unlocked seem like a lot of fun. This is an amazing game, can’t wait to unlock the next missions. Thank you again, David!—Jamie N.


“It honestly took a leap of faith to invest as much money as I did in Invincible, but it was undoubtedly one of the best investments I’ve ever made in myself to date. It took a lot of work, just as Dr. Tian had promised.  Sticking with the process also gave me the results that Dr. Tian had promised. I loved the odd-numbered modules that focused on my mindset. Reflecting on the material and constantly doing the guided meditations not only I feel different, but caused me to carry myself differently. I definitely noticed the results of the change. I’ve been treated differently by both men and women. The even-numbered modules were, in my opinion, more difficult to understand and implement, but I have gotten better with practice and will continue to practice until I have mastered the content. I have become a more confident and hard-charging than I have ever been in my life. Despite being naturally introverted, I am not only more social but I genuinely enjoy being more social, especially around women, which was always a sticking point in my life. It’s unbelievable just how enjoyable life has become from harnessing the results and I know that it will only get better from here. I have the utmost faith in Dr. Tian’s products, and I’m looking forward to further developing my self-mastery in Rock Solid Relationships & Masculine Mastery. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us, Dr. Tian!—Paul D.


“David-
I want to thank you so much for your video series. I’m just getting out of a 10-year marriage/12 year relationship. I was 24 when we got together, she was my first girlfriend, I had essentially no dating life before that and had no idea what I was doing.

Back in January, I watched your videos (plus a number of other resources). Let me say, the shit works! After signing up for some dating apps (Tinder, Bumble, etc), now the limiting factor in my dating life has been the number of days in a week. Thank you!—Steve J.


“Brief background: I would like to think I’m doing pretty well at life– Topping my class, starting up a business, bagging top internships I feel like I’m living in the fast lane. Before this, I have never sought any help or really invested time in discovering myself. Now, I am watching ur videos almost every night before bed.

Finding your channel was by no coincidence. While I was doing well, on one hand, I felt empty inside on the other. I tend to always try and improve myself and I tried to solve this problem by trying to improve myself even more. Tried cooking, playing the guitar, but all these “self-improvement” activities still didn’t cut it. It was only until I found your channel and started watching it then did I manage to find peace within myself. I feel like a much happier person after learning from your videos about self-discovery and the importance of having great values.

I feel like the most significant change to how I go about my life is the understanding that when you think you are intelligent, you tend to create distance between yourself and others and that was something I had going on in my life for the longest time and while I made great friends with high flyers and driven individuals at the top, I had problems connecting with most other people. For a long time, I felt like I had a socializing issue. By no means am I awkward, I actually like to think being able to hold conversations is one of my greater strengths. But I just found it challenging to connect with lots of people on a deeper level despite being able to gain the respect of most I cross paths with. I know this is a long ramble but I am really grateful for all the videos you have uploaded and sincerely mean everything I have said from the bottom of my heart.—Timothy Q.


“David’s “Lifestyle Mastery” course helped me pick up the pieces after my divorce. I’ve incorporated meditation into my life and the guided meditation in module 3 helped me identify split selves repressed within me. I realize how much I need them to be playful, joyous, warm to others and compassionate to myself. This course helped me extract and confront the pain I’ve been carrying that permeates my interactions with others and undermines my self-discipline in maintaining my daily routine. Thank you!—Frank T.


“Hey David, I just wanted you to know how much it has meant to me that you have been there to answer my questions and really get me through the beginning changes in my life and my relationship!

“My wife and I are doing VASTLY better!.

“I am continuing to double down on the books as well as repeating RSR and MM…

“I didn’t want you to think I was just flaking out and not showing up… Your kindness and candor have been refreshing and a true blessing! David, I can honestly sit here and say you helped change my life so far and for that, I am eternally grateful!

“Thanks again Coach Tian :wink:— David R.


“Rock Solid Relationships has been the most life-changing program I’ve ever taken. A year ago I was very depressed and trying to get over my most recent breakup, but couldn’t seem to find a way to get better. I felt very empty and unfulfilled. The only times that I was happy was when I was dating or in a relationship. Then eventually these relationships would end badly and I couldn’t figure out exactly why. I knew it was because I was “needy” sometimes but the issues were much deeper than that. Through RSR I learned the reasons for the type of relationships I had in the past and the patterns that I would always do. Even why I was attracted to the type of girls I was and why they were attracted to me.

I honestly believe that if I didn’t go through this and learn about how healthy relationships work and what a healthy psychology is then I would have kept repeating the same types of relationships over and over. Never truly being happy and never really loving someone.

Of course, this program takes a lot of work, it’s not just listening to it and that’s it. You have to do the exercises and put in the work like all good things in life. If you do then you will notice a huge difference not only in your relationships but in your life in general. I feel much more fulfilled now than I ever have. It’s the first time in my life that I feel like I can be in a healthy passionate relationship. And I know that the next person I’m in a relationship will be amazing and will feel the same way about me.

This isn’t a tricks and techniques course like the vast majority of courses out there. This is a life-changing course and changes your own psychology permanently. You will change for the better. And since all your relationships are a reflection of you, then maturing and growing is the most important thing that you can do. If you are in a relationship, dating, or completely single I’d recommend this course. It will make your current relationship so much better and if you’re single this will help you find the best girl for you and have the best relationship with her. If you’ve ever felt unfulfilled and empty like I have, this will help you so much. And if you’ve ever felt like you “needed” a girl or relationship to feel happy, which eventually ruins your relationship, then this will definitely heal that. There’s so much value in this course and it doesn’t only help you in relationships but in every aspect of your life.

Thanks again David for all your work and for creating a course that I’ll be going over and over again in the future!”— Greg V.


“I want to thank you for the content that is you providing to the masses! I am currently looking at your book list that you have sent me, WOW! Thank you for bringing my attention to some of these incredible books I never heard of!!! David, what I admire and respect about the content that you are creating is that you approach the problems of men and some women, young and old with a holistic methodology. you don’t only look at the problem, you look at the person as a whole and deal with the root of the problem, not with shallow quick-fix bullshit. You are a wonderful and refreshing breeze in the cesspool of bullshit that is on the internet.

SO THANK YOU.— Adam N.

“Hurray! Just completed the entire Rock Solid Relationships, what a huge contrast to those normal pickup/dating info products. It was such an inside-out growth process that had been deeply healing.

My big 3 transformation I had is:

#1 It has allowed me to experience more joy, deep connection, compassion and love for people.

#2 Have started therapy. I am convinced that there are still hidden issues that I haven’t “cleansed” and I still need to do more grief work to become even more secure, open, unashamed and emotionally free.

#3 I feel more calm, centered, secure and compassionate towards people now. I am less judgmental, I am less “anxious” about strangers because I can see through their eyes that “he/she is probably suffering”. I now wonder what’s their fears/dreams/real self, instead of just judging them or getting into my own head about my own issues.

Thanks a lot again!—Cam W.


“Just completed Module 9 of Invincible, and I have to say, it’s been quite a journey.

I learned much about myself, and in turn, other people. I learned on a more experiential level how subtle the effects of psychology can be, be it in terms of priming, in terms of perspective, and how influential it can be in shaping your views and lifestyle.

I feel that this will help me greatly in my spiritual path. It is said there to use all things as the path to training, I am glad to say that I have a better understanding of this now.

Onwards to Invincibility!—YC Lee


“I have taken 10 weeks to freedom course and lifestyle mastery course.

My review of 10 weeks to freedom is very positive and would recommend and have recommended my friends to take it. The course is not like other dating programs, it’s more than a dating course and the effects is life changing. The course not only help to overcome the fear of talking to women but it also helps me improve as a person, I became more assertive as a person and being decisive about what I want in my life. The Facebook accountability post and live have helped me tremendously, we can interact with David and he can point out the problem that we have.

My review of lifestyle mastery is totally amazing !!! The course has shifted my paradigm so many times thru out the course. Many new things and concepts I have been exposed in the course, it is a very powerful course and again life changing experience, all I can say is buy it !!! the course is very good and David have delivered more than I expected.—Tom Y.


“My brief review of Awakenings program:

Have participated in the last 3 weeks and find a lot of interesting topics on being discuss (such as Nazi camps and the human condition, white knight) and it did satisfy my curiosity on some topics which you don’t normally discuss or hear in mainstream media and able to post/ask questions directly to David. I find it amusing when David does his ‘awakenings’ moment on topics which are absurd or silly but worth the feedback from the questions being asked. My only concern is that on some difficult/complex questions being asked or with a long backstory, it takes David some time to digest the questions which take time away; my suggestion would be to keep the query/questions brief and to the point. Other than that David is definitely doing great for the post-PUA mess and certainly for me. Thanks!

I would personally recommend this program as an add-on to anyone who is going through counseling.—Jason C.


“David Tian Ph.D. truly delivers a complete nuclear package for men with Invincible. Through the 10 Week course, I was able to re-work and tweak my mental “operating system” to one that no longer sabotaged me in my interactions with women, and this helped me a lot in coming out of a long depression after a failed long-term relationship and a couple of subsequent dating disasters, and in restoring (and improving) my decimated confidence and self-esteem. I highly recommend the inner game odd numbered modules as these deal with core issues facing a lot of nice guys who are otherwise clueless to the huge influence our unconscious minds actually have over us. Some of the guided exercises can be intense, so be prepared for the ride!—Clarence T.


“You probably hear this a lot, but thank you, David. Rock Solid Relationships is changing my perspective on life. It’s changing my way to live, step by step. Thanks!

I guess it’s another Check mark symbolon contribution 🙂—Nick S.


“I just finished the Rock Solid Relationships course in its entirety, and I have to say that I think it was worth every dollar paid. As I progressed through the course I experienced vivid “ah ha” moments along with many many moments of deep sadness, grief, and shame. I don’t even feel like I know the person who started this course anymore. I can obviously still see remnants of who I was before doing the sometimes extremely difficult emotional work but even as I write this with a heavy heart because of a breakup a few weeks ago I know my life will never be the same. I have tried my very best to implement as much as possible that I learned as I went through this course and the changes and effects have been astonishing, to say the least. I plan to start tomorrow on module one and work my way back through all the modules along with doing the recommended readings. There are too many examples to give at this time but as I implemented the material in this course I have seen my relationships, the type of people that have come into my life, my personal growth, and my general emotional maturity enhance in ways that I could not have even begun to imagine when I started this course.

When I began the course my goal was to figure out how to save mine as of recent relationship which ultimately I did not accomplish. What I did find in that relationship, however, was the necessary driving force for me to take this course and grow exponentially. What I did accomplish is taking the necessary steps towards emotional maturity that will help me tenfold in my relationships to come. The sense of empowerment that I now have is something that will never leave me as I move throughout my life, and I hope that others like me will be brave enough to scratch at the surface of their own lives and feel the deep pain and darkness within that must be faced and ultimately conquered before one could hope to reach upwards towards the light of their own destiny.

Thank you, David Tian for making this course and I thank God that I found just one of your videos 3 years ago. That video was literally the one on how to get any girl’s phone number. So much has happened since that first video and I know David’s material has changed so much since that video was shot but I am eternally grateful that I clicked on that link that started it all.—Wayne M.


Hi David,

Something really unexpected happened during the week, well for me at least, it may not be much of a surprise to you. I am Back together with her, and after a week of chatting and talks, we are now back together.

I know that going back into a relationship with her will be a mistake if I don’t address my underlying problems, the same goes for her.

I introduced her to some of your concepts and teachings. She was not reluctant in-fact we sat this weekend past and watched. Is she Relationship material? and we have agreed to watch a new video of yours every time we are together.

So having established this new way of thinking in our relationship, I feel like there is hope because I am seeing the type of effort she is giving and so far it feels real.

As per your advice, I have decided to go for therapy, and I approached a therapist. and gave her a brief rundown of my situation. and I will be working on myself.

Because as you say “you have to be one whole person first” or something along the lines of that cant exactly remember.

The reason why I’m sending you this message? Is to firstly say thank you.

You’ve changed my entire outlook on life and your videos and podcasts are little nuggets of pure helpful informative gold, each of them broaden my understanding.

Secondly, keep doing it, if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t have even made it this far. let alone grow emotionally as much as I already have. I have loads of work ahead of me. If the free material is this great, I can’t wait to get on to the paid stuff.

Thirdly, thank you once again for everything you have done.—Sam S.


“I have quite a few mentors, but I will say that you are the one that actually holds us accountable to our true selves, and challenges us to find that true self amidst a lifetime of disingenuous bullshit that we’ve programmed ourselves to be, or had programmed into us without realizing it 🙂 the state of being aware, centered, and present rather than validation seeking and being a try-hard, is by far the biggest challenge, and that’s where I personally continue to struggle.  Obviously, this refers to being on dates with women 🙂 my journey involves destroying my lifelong subconscious catalysts for this, but it only started a year ago so I am sure it takes time.  I follow you because I respect and trust your word and your experience.  Thank you for your teachings, as they all do make sense when thought through subjectively. 🙂—Neal C.


“David, I can’t help but express my gratitude for every bit of your work.  Each piece of content you put out helps fuel the vision of the hope of freedom to true unconditional love and acceptance of my past.  The storm clouding my mind since my teens has started to dissipate and the first rays of sunlight can finally pierce through.  You are to credit for all this!—Jy Q.


“The Invincible Course has inspired me into action. I see the life I want…a life of purpose, a life of growth, a life of adventure, love, passion, challenges, and inspiration…a life of Greatness. In the exercises, I saw that life so vividly and I am inspired to make it a reality.

People often ask me what I “want” to do after my service in the Army. In the past I would respond with “honestly I don’t really know” (not being honest at all with that response, mostly because I was scared of how they’d react to my true desires) or I’d hesitantly reply that “I would LIKE to” or “WANT to work in this industry I am very passionate about. Now though, because of the training in the Invincible course, I no longer say “I want to do” anything…now I say “I am GOING to”…and I AM GOING to work in that industry.

It is a subtle but powerful shift of mindset…a mindset that you helped me to develop and I am very grateful for that. For the first time in a long time, I am working to turn my dreams into a reality again and I have an energy that will take me there.”—Jeff E.


“I just wanted to say that doing the course material for Rock Solid Relationships is great… doing the recommended reading and then going back through the course material is freaking priceless!

Thank you so much, David Tian for putting this thing together being patient and guiding us to be better men and better people to contribute and receive and give love at the higher level! Just been a great few months getting my life in order for real! Thanks, brother!”—David R.


“I came to David’s work, in part, through the struggle of my relationship – in search of answers, growth, and self-improvement. For the longest time I thought that making myself more attractive, and understanding what women found attractive, would turn me into a man that she couldn’t resist, or at least make me so desirable that I wouldn’t be concerned with her anymore. Now I see how limited this view was.

But you have to start somewhere to get to where you’re supposed to be.

Had I not been through Rock Solid and Masculine Mastery last summer, I might have never finally ended things with her. I would have probably continued playing the games, continued giving without reciprocation, continued “playing it cool” without asserting my needs.

Instead, I broke things off knowing that I deserve more.

Today I’m feeling really grateful for David’s work, including his evolution from pick-up to much more nuanced self-improvement programs. This work has helped me become a stronger man, more in touch with my needs, and less attached to my shame.

And I hope everyone feels equally empowered after going through RSMM. Each of us is on his own compelling journey, and the truth is that the elements of our best lives are within ourselves. We just have to be open to uncovering them. Onward!”—Jared J.


“Aloha David. You speak the truth and I love it… The reason I love your channel is because it is one of the best content channels I’ve run across to give women like me a window into the kind of situations men run into, how men think, and truthful opinions from a man’s point of view about what confused, young, and/or game-playing women do to men that contribute to their confusion. I so very much appreciate your ‘man up’ (know WTF you’re really doing as a man) and ‘man of integrity’ orientation because that is EXACTLY what women like me are looking for. Keep it up! I will be watching with keen interest.”—Candace H.


“I just completed the course for the first time and I feel Invincible…in fact, I KNOW I am!!!

This has been an amazing journey so far and I know there is so much more up ahead!!!

I have grown so much in the past few months! I am a more confident, more happy, more driven, and a more awesome self than I have ever been!!!

For every one of my Invincible Brothers who has shared their stories and insights or commented on my posts, Thank You! I really do appreciate all of your support! Know that I am always ready to give advice if you need it!

David, thank you for giving me the opportunity to do this training! It has changed my life in so many ways and has built a beautiful amazing incredible future for me to strive towards!

Again Thank you all…my Invincible Brothers!

And as always:
Stack W’s!!!”—Jeff E.


This course is ten thousand leagues under the sea.. in other words deeper than all fuck. I was very hopeful about the course but I had no real idea what I was going to encounter.

Ever since I took rock-solid relationships, I have learned quite a lot about myself, about my energy, my mind, etc..

I love the focus on Masculinity. I’m starting to wake up and want to work out… getting stuff done with purpose at work… being assertive and decisive at home…

As I went through RSR, my self-understanding grew considerably. One of the many insights I got from the meditations was that I found out that my wife does not think I can relate to her issues (anxiety and overall trauma from her crummy childhood) because I was a bully from my adolescences into early manhood. What I have been holding onto though is the fact that I was bullied on multiple occasions. I held onto these occasions and turned them into who I became. I chose my friends based on these occasions and made all my decisions based on them.

Now in my adult life, I had never truly played the hero… had never really crafted that warrior side of me… and then I was gutted that my wife felt I can’t relate to her… So the meditations on masculinity were a God send as I was able to open up to myself… to receive REAL forgiveness… to know that this isn’t who I am nor is it defining who I am… I am on the path of maturing the warrior, learning the way of the King, making this stuff disappear with positive reflective energy as the magician, and culminating my true self… the real true me into the lover, the real husband, father, and man that I am. Just a great thing I needed in my life. Thanks, David Tian thank you indeed.

Prior to beginning RSR, I would express trust verbally as a matter of fact and severely lacked in my displaying of respect for my wife. Showing my wife respect by being present with her — a key lesson in the first module of RSR — allowed her to feel more trusting in me. I believe these are symbiotic in that the more I display presence, the more she feels respected and thus more trusting of me. Typically in times of stress, I certainly learned from my father to avoid the storm the best I could to ride it out until it subsides. This displays no roots. I have not been rooted. I have been practicing the exercise of the course to display undivided attention and presence to my wife when storms surface, to extremely pleasant results.

In another of the amazing guided meditations, I found that my earliest memory was when my mom left me when I was young. The old interpretation was she didn’t want me and I really felt the abandonment, which leaked into all my serious relationships with women. This feeling of abandonment has been one of the core emotions I suppressed and have not allowed myself to feel, which led to me being avoidant. However, I also saw that my interpretation of the event, while valid, isn’t the complete picture. My mom had left to go to a foreign country so that I could have a better life. After doing the meditation, I feel much better afterward. Thank you, David Tian for making this possible.

The Rock Solid Relationships course is very comprehensive at least to me. This is an incredible program overall. Thanks again David Tian for creating this course! I’m about to rock leg day and do my dark side meditation. Go Warrior King!” —Brian H.


“The private group has been invaluable. The support from other men that have had similar stuff happen to them. Knowing that you’re not alone is one of the best positive feelings. I know other people enjoy what David Tian provides. It turned my life around. Helping me get to the root of my deepest issues. I have prepared me for being apart of my daughter’s life I haven’t seen in 11 years. I just wish I had more time be on here more often. To keep learning how to be a better happy person. I truly am happier with myself.” —Derek B.


“I am in one of David Tian paid courses full disclosure… and it’s one of the best decisions I ever made and found him by sheer miracle.” —David R Cheers


“The Rock Solid Relationships course is very comprehensive at least to me. This is a good program and I’m honored to be a part of the group.” —Andrew C.


“Thank you, David, I am grateful that I took your course. It is truly amazing what you’re trying to achieve here. I used to get so angry with you as you triggered those memories and emotions in me. But I see now that you only chose to do that, as you believe those emotions would help me. Through you, I have successfully freed myself, and I will continue to be freer. May we stay curious always brothers, for life is wonderful, and the pure existence of ourselves, that, is truly amazing.” —Sam L.


“I really would love to start off by saying that I am inspired by the Man Up YouTube channel you have created. With your help, I was able to break free from emotional abuse from my girlfriend by taking control of my issues and making myself a better person for me and no-one else. Since then I have never been in so much control of my own life and for the first time, I could say that I am proud of myself. I have pushed a lot of people away but the right ones came back, looking at me as their inspiration. Even my girl stopped talking to me for good but now she is eager to see my next achievement and is much more honest with me than ever before. I did all that with the help of self-awareness, and your input from Man Up videos.” —Albert Y.

“I have 5 years of Meditation experience, and when my friend tried to convince me of the effectiveness of David Tian’s courses, I was initially unconvinced.

That was until one day, in one of my meditations, like a stroke of insight, it occurred to me that Dave’s courses will help me significantly.

I don’t know how true this would be until I began the Platinum Partnership. Following his recommendations, I began completing the exercises David recommended me to complete, under Invincible and Rock Solid Relationships.

As I did these courses, my understanding of myself grew. The meditations were designed to bring out specific things in my subconscious, and my Meditation experience only enhanced the effectiveness of these therapeutic meditations. It helped me clarify what I truly found important to me, and showed me that ultimately, my concerns for whether others approved of me, whether I had friends, or even whether I would get a girlfriend, were all irrelevant questions. Ultimately, the source of happiness lies within, and what matters is being true to yourself, always acting out of your own goodwill.

And this was just from the first module of Invincible, where I visualized my own future.

From RSR Module 1, I learned about the Hierarchy of Needs, the importance of staying rooted in relationships, of Presence, and the importance of selecting the right partner. Right from the get-go, the Needs Hierarchy put into words what I already begun noticing was the case from my own Meditation. It gave me a framework from which I could understand myself better, and the body engagement only helped solidify and internalize my own understanding of myself. It has also given me a means through which I can better understand others and their hierarchy of needs based on how they act from day-to-day life, and helped me become more aware of when I am being needy.

With the understanding of Presence (which I realise I have already been doing to a certain extent before), I learned how to use it more often in my day to day life, to understand better how others feel. I learned to trust my emotional feeling and “reads” of other people, and to let my subconscious do what it feels is right. The understanding of Presence together with the Needs framework has helped me understand the peers in my workplace, whether they are needy or not, with Presence helping me understand what is the best way to help them.

This understanding has helped me significantly in reducing the ease by which I may feel needy, and helped me understand the conditions by which I begin to feel needy. For this I am very thankful for this Module, as it has equipped me with the knowledge to truly change my life.

It also helped that the video after these was on experiencing the dark side, the Warrior energy within myself, the part of myself that wished to protect others. This helped me channel my mind better into being more assertive when needed.

Next was Module 2, where my greatest takeaway was the powerful Warrior, Magician, Lover, King Meditation. I shared about this in the RSR group, but it is something that bears repeating. This Meditation gave me a way to attribute certain parts of my body with each of these identities, allowing me to channel their strength easily when needed. I use the Warrior quite often to give myself energy to do what needs to be done, the Magician for perspective, and the Lover and King to ground myself.

Currently I am on Module 5 of Invincible, learning about Limiting Beliefs. I can already see how much this will soon change me, and I just want to say Thank you to David who has helped me significantly.” —Yong Chun


“Since I have been in the program and have discovered David Tian and his teachings. I’m truly become a new person. In every aspect of my life. —Derek B.


“Today I’ve decided to write a transparent, long, reflective review of the experiences and results I had with invincible course over the past four weeks. This is probably the longest post that I’ve ever written about my personal story. I want to share the mistakes, experience, results that I gained from invincible course because I don’t normally write and express my feelings to people that I don’t know well.

“I’m naturally an introvert person that doesn’t like to mingle with people in most settings, I also felt a lot of pressure when I wanted to make new friends. A few years ago, I experienced a traumatic event, I didn’t share with anyone, so I decided to keep quiet, and thought that I didn’t have the will and power to change anything. I always stayed at home, played video games and suffered depression and social anxiety for many years.

“I lost interest in literally everything I liked to do before. (reading, bodybuilding, running, singing, playing piano and guitar). I also flunked my university studies for 2 years, and not willing to appeal for a second chance or share about my anxiety problems. I thought that I was doomed to become a failure in the future.

“Before I knew about David Tian and his youtube videos, I made some of my friends who dated a lot of girls, and usually party every Saturday night in Singapore, I was kind of envious about their lifestyle and the “game” they use to attract women into their life. So I applied its tactics to the girls and gained short-term pleasures from achieving the successful results. I felt like shit and of course, more depressed, more anxious and more miserable, some girls thought I’m a weirdo.

“Long stories short, I was being too NEEDY, unauthentic, evil NARCISSISTIC or whatever you can call. I felt like crap especially giving too much f*ck about what to say to the girls and friends, and even to my family as well. I’m also lazy as f*ck, and unmotivated to do anything to change myself.

Four weeks ago, I happened to find David Tian’s invincible course, mainly the course is about conquered the needy behavior first, finding the values and principles, which I can never find from PUA’s stuff.

“So, for the first week, I spent mostly 4-5 hours per day to watch module 1, searching for the flows, understanding the principle of non-neediness. I always reflect on the inner flow and non-neediness behavior every day.

“Everything in my life changes radically when I integrated the non-neediness behavior and state of flow in my mind. My socializing skill improved tremendously, I can talk to friends without any hesitation (worrying about what lines to use) and initiate communication with strangers easily. I can run 5km within 30min every day as long as I focus on finding the inner flows in my body. I become more sincere and open-minded, I share what I learn from reading with my friends every day. I also keep a journey every day, to reflect on the things I am grateful for every day. Most unexpected thing was that I never knew I could do public speaking. My persuasion skills and writing skills also improved a lot from building the flows organically into my mind and body.

“Sometimes, my friends are not happy with their lives, so I share them with my own principle and reflections about my past mistakes and experiences. I engage a lot of deeper conversations with my friends and avoid small talks. My friends are much happier to be by my side every time. They find that I’m a detailed and helpful person too. Most importantly is that I’m having fun myself all the time! I made my friends laugh at my jokes too. It’s happened so sudden without being so conscious. I never know I could tell jokes that make people laugh crazily. It was then again, I realized how the adoption of flow changed my behavior and the behavior of the people around me.

“Thank you David Tian for being my mentor, without your free videos, I wouldn’t have discovered you and my life would still remain the same. Invincible course is one of the best investment I’ve made in my life. I wish to meet you humbly in person in the future, as I want to learn more about ancient Chinese philosophy from you. That will be one of the best days happened. 🙂

“Like always, Good luck to my invincible brothers on achieving your goals in life! — feeling blissful.” —Vincent V.


“Dear David, thank you! For the first time in my life after going through invincible, I feel like the real me and like I let the true man inside me out. It has made a difference even just walking around noticing all the girls noticing me. The confidence I exude when I talk to women after being an introvert all my life is huge and going out with the different women and doing things faster and farther than I’ve ever done in my life is awesome. Thank you again for this it was totally worth it.”—Steve M.


“I just took a look at my entrance survey of invincible that I did. It sounds unbelievable to me that I adopted or changed probably 90% of the behaviour I wanted to. In my daily life, I also come very often to the feeling of how I wished people would perceive me before and after an interaction. Wtf?! I knew change can happen, but this fast? I’m talking about 3 1/2 months. I can’t wait to re-do the exercises of invincible to intensify the experience and progress. Thank you, David, for building the program so wisely and powerful.”—Andre K.


“Dear David, I wanted to let you know how completing invincible has changed my life. Well, it absolutely has, I realized I have been carrying around things for 40 years that have been holding me back well no more as of today I am free of them and continuing on as an invincible man. thank you, thank you for everything.”—Steve


“Dear David, thank you! For the first time in my life after going through invincible, I feel like the real me and like I let the true man inside me out. It has made a difference even just walking around noticing all the girls noticing me. The confidence I exude when I talk two women after being an introvert on my life is huge and going out with the different women and doing things faster and farther than I’ve ever done in my life is awesome. Thank you again for this it was totally worth it.”—Steve M.


“I’ve just completed the Invincible course in its entirety and have been looking forward to sending you this email with my feedback and personal story.

Prior to coming across your work, I was operating at a fairly advanced level with attracting women. I had the sort of success with women many guys couldn’t relate to as I devoted the last 10 years to understanding, attracting and seducing women. In social circles, I was considered a skilled “PUA” and was sought after by many men who wanted to improve with women. My foray into attraction started before Neil Strauss’ book ‘The Game’ was published, and it wasn’t long before I found myself contributing to Mystery’s pickup forum and coaching men.

The net result of this learned skill led me to date someone who most would’ve thought was out of my league as she was a 6’0″, 22-year-old blonde fashion model, and I was a 5’9″ skinny 35-year-old Asian dude. I never felt she was outside my wheelhouse as I was dating models, strippers, doctors, scientists, CEO’s prior — profiles of which are out of reach for the average male.

However, my failed relationship goes to show you to that no matter how skilled you are in dating and attraction, it’s easy to become complacent; neediness can easily creep in, and before you know it, unattractive behavior on your part ensues. My entire self-worth as a man was attached to dating this young model (as she represented my ideal), and when the relationship went south, so did my ego and self-worth. Looking back, it was the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me, as it presented a massive wake up call that I needed to get this area of my life handled.

In the following 9 months, I aggressively made drastic changes and my life has never been the same. I studied Buddhism, Taoism, Stoic philosophy, studied historical figures like Marcus Aurelius, Julius Caesar, read ‘The Way of the Superior Man’ by David Deida, learned to meditate and being present. I joined a gym and trained 3 days a week, I became selective with the food I was eating, and it wasn’t long after before I defeated my Goliath, the demon that’s kept me in a bottomless pit for many years — I overcame my fight with severe depression and anxiety and got off the pills, once and for all.

It wasn’t when I decided to commit to completing Invincible that things elevated. The guided meditation exercise to alleviate your limiting beliefs was the game changer for me. Despite the fact that I’ve dated around 100 western women from all countries around the world, I still hold a strong limiting belief that western ‘roundeye’ women don’t fancy Asian men, particularly the 9s and 10s of the world. I barely dropped a tear at my father’s funeral, but the guided meditation to overcome your limiting belief made me weep like never before — and thanks to you David, I’m proud to say that this is no longer a concern.

It took me longer than I expected to complete your course because I re-watched the videos countless times, wrote a copious amount of notes and ingrained the principles you taught into my subconscious.

This time last year, I was incredibly miserable with the thoughts of suicide bouncing in my mind. Now today as I’m writing this 10 months later
, I have a big smile on my face — I’ve sorted myself out and today am happy and fulfilled even without a woman — something I thought I’d never been able to say. My values and purpose in life have been re-established, and today I operate a property development business and co-founded a tech-startup all in the space of 3 months.

You’re a good man David, thank you for your valued contribution to this world and the positive influence you’ve had in my life.

Let me know if you ever make it to Melbourne, Australia, I’d love to buy you a few drinks and thank you personally.”—Dave K.


“A few minutes ago, I officially consider myself a graduate of Invincible. I finished the last guided meditation. It has been an amazing journey. The last 1.5 months of my life has been incredible. My friends are now asking me how its possible I’m doing so much. Well, I can tell you the inner mindset changes from Invincible has been getting me to do all of this without burning out. Its quite the opposite, actually! After every guided meditation, my vision burns more clearly, and I gain more energy and confidence in pursuing my ideal self and never going back to my old ways.—James J.


“Thank you, David, I am grateful that I have met you. It is truly amazing what you’re trying to achieve here. I used to get so angry with you as you triggered those memories and emotions in me. But I see now that you only chose to do that, as you believe those emotions would help me. I am not free, Yet, but I am getting closer and developing myself every day.—Sam L.


“I think every guy should be involved in these programs. To be honest I tell everyone about you and what you do for men. Seriously life changing. Things just keep happening to me now. That I would never expect. Everyone at my work just seems to adore me now. Even the lady that pretty much hated me. She almost bends over backward for me. I don’t even ask her to do anything. The owners are always coming and joking with me. Everywhere I go people want to give me things for free. I’m humble though and do not take everything given. I have only scratched the surface of your teachings. This is what is happening. All these new friends. This is the best time my life. Thank you.—Derek B.


“Man, I just wanted to let you know you’ve changed my life. I’m doing things now that I never even dared to dream about three years ago, and I’m thinking about things in such a healthier, fulfilling way. You’re a life saver and a fucking legend, thanks, David.—Omar Mo.


“Hey, guys. I’ve been a part of the man up group for a short while now. I’ve learned and progressed a lot in this time… I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support and guidance that David, and the others in the Man Up group.I have progressed so much in this short time, and I hope to continue. I’m grateful for the knowledge that David is so willing to share to help us. Otherwise, I would be stuck on the same rollercoaster of destruction and heartbreak with this woman. So, huge thanks to David!—Tristan S.


“Since I was old enough to be conscious of what a “relationship” is, I’ve wondered why many of the relationships I’ve been in, or observed, have sometimes seemed lifeless. Or, worse, were clearly toxic (by almost any subjective or objective standard).

“I’ve been looking for “the answers.”

“I finally found David Tian, about a year ago, and have been working hard (several hours a day) through his courses, meditations, and exercises.

“From him, I’ve learned that all of the ancient philosophers, for thousands of years, have been trying to figure out “the answers” – how the true self gets buried by society and dogmatic institutions, how to recover it, and how to live life in the most meaningful and fulfilling way possible.

“I’ve learned that meditation is not just a practice to get one to “relax,” it’s an ancient practice, developed over thousands of years, that calms the “thinking” part of your mind (the prefrontal cortex, for my fellow science geeks) so it gets the rest it needs. And that it also allows the deeper stuff (in the “emotional” parts of your brain the stuff that is actually driving your life) to be brought to the surface (“thinking” part of the brain”) so it can be dealt with and you can lead your daily life with much more purpose and a sense of calm.

“Maybe most importantly, I’ve learned there are a lot of extremely useful “frameworks” (created by philosophers of all stripes, Buddhists, Christians, Atheists, you-name-it over the centuries you can use to clarify your true self, life purpose, and values.

“I’m grateful that he made this video. I’ve been trying to share how important and helpful he is with many of you for about a year now, often (it seems) in a not-so-effective manner.

“So here it is, in his own words.

“If you are interested in him, and the products from his company (Aura Transformation), just ask. I’ll try to ONLY answer what you ask :D.

“Oh…and NEVER FEAR…I haven’t lost my wicked, dry sense of humor.

“Peace.”—Greg Van.


“Hi, David. Big fan of your Man Up episodes – learned a lot from you about long-term happiness & fulfillment in life. Thanks! I used to be a typical achiever/pleaser “nice guy” who fails to recognize & acknowledge my own shortcomings. I came to realize this only recently, however, through your videos & learning from the Man Up group.—Tony.


“Hey David, I found your videos on FB and have watched every one of them. I am a member of the group.  Recently my life came apart when my wife of 8 years told me she didn’t love me anymore. What how can this be? Then I found myself acting like a little punk to her texting every day chasing, chasing, chasing… It made things worse… I couldn’t understand. Then I saw your videos. It was like getting hit by lightning. I had been friend zoned… I am a very muscular handsome guy. I had just lost my edge. I had been her bitch constantly chasing her false morality… Well, we are divorced… Your help pulled me out of this fog. I am back to my old self. Confident. And even though I’m alone right now I’m living a great life. I live in the mountains of North Carolina. And am noticing women are attracted to me… I had traded my masculinity for her approvals… David, thank you! I’m back!—Duran D.


“Hey David, the reason I’m following you is because the videos that you posted (episodes) is really inspirational. It points out all the wrong things that I’m doing in life so I can better myself.—Jon Jones.


“I’m having a similar experience in the program. It’s so deep, and so useful, and has pushed me to new heights. Repetition is part of the key for sure. So good!!—Jared Jensen.


“Oh, David Tian. What do you do to us haha 🙂

I’ve repeated the Inner Child Meditation and the 3D Trauma process yesterday. I don’t know why, but I had to cry even before something happened in the Inner Child Meditation. This is such an experience.. the 3D trauma process was even deeper and I had to cry even more. And it really cleans my pipes somehow and relieves something within me. It feels really good. And today I started out with Module 7. For me the most INTENSE information so far. I can understand why you keep this information to a later point of the program because it is INDEED a very vulnerable and complicated topic.
Could be that I would just have shut down a few weeks ago and just didn’t hear what you say because it would have been too “forbidden” for me to think about these topics. I am a little bit confused now, but I assume… this is good and normal when you open your history in this way.

David, I am very grateful for this experience you give us here. I learn so much these days, it’s CRAZY. I see so much more things that happened to me when I was a young boy, this is so cool! I am in personal development for over 12 years now and I have never experienced such a deep level of heart-openness in such a short period of time.

You do great work, David. It’s really worth the money. Please continue.”—Armin He


“First of all, to David Tian Ph.D., I can’t thank you enough man. The Scrooge process is so so so incredible. I went all out in my car and I could feel a noticeable change in my body and mind. I walk differently, I think differently, and I react differently. I do feel INVINCIBLE.—Tango Nov


“Hi David, your first story about yourself … how you got cheated on by someone you loved, and how you changed your own life. That personal story meant more to me than pretty much anything else you said. Yeah, everything you teach is important, but your personal story was what made me want to listen to you in the first place.”—William Blesch


“Hey David, thank you for being brutally honest. It helps men including myself re-think and reflect who is the man in the mirror. The most valuable lesson I’ve learned from you is to have confidence in who you are as a man. You helped me realize that you don’t have to be the sexiest, smartest or best dressing guy in the room to attract women. As long as you show that confidence in who you are, what you bring to the table and stand your ground, women will see that and will respect you. When men start getting into a people-pleasing mentality or a man that tries to fit in with everybody else, it starts peeling away from who they really are.”—Francis Tam


“The biggest lesson I’ve learned from you, David, is the importance of having values and standards when it comes to relationships. Knowing how to kill neediness has been a huge help in being attractive.”—Ming Han Soh


“I gave this some deep thought… so here goes.
What I’ve learned from you David, I’ve learned a major understanding to love and lust also I’ve diminished a lot of my neediness I carry myself more appropriate behavior which has been great, I have random people whether at the store buying groceries or out n daily public random folks begin conversation or topics out of blue n a friendly manner which I carry conversation very well. Also I’ve learned to really qualified lady’s and see many of the red flags that has helped me to avoid women which before I would have been involved with before now I navigate the crazies and can seek out quality..not that I don’t have more to learn and grow from I must say though thank you David for setting me on this path I’ve matured and grown much! Thank you, David.”
—Jason Cuevas


“I thought I knew a good amount of information about dating and women because I have a bachelor in human services and currently working on my master. Truth is I don’t. I am humbled and open to learning.”—Hugo Velasco


“For me the strong points were what you taught above love and attraction…and shattering the myths that I always thought was true…keep shattering those lies or myths….it has kept me free of the do more trap, it is a lot of self-work to change my brain chemistry and solidify the pathways that have been so ingrained from childhood…it will take time and effort to rewire my brain in order to see the true person that I am and accept myself for all that I truly am and grow from there.”—Fila Calientez


“Whenever I have a question I find that you have already answered it, directly or indirectly in a blog post, a ManUp episode, a comment or a conference/podcast. So keep the awesome work Master David :muscle: .”—Alvaro Mendoza


“The biggest lesson I’ve learned and worked through it still is how co-dependent neediness is a symptom of deeper psychological issues that need to be addressed for your True self to come out. How living in co-dependence is, in fact, living out of false selves that try to please others or achieve in order to get love. The road out of false selves and to True self by cultivating self-love and a consistent self-care routine, in addition to psychotherapy, has been a recommendation by David Tian that is slowly transforming my life.”—Alan Mattei


“Accept the high probability of losing everything in life, even my life itself, and use all creative skills in this situation. This lesson is not directly related to dating but it helps in all fields of my life, not just limited in dating.”—Kimball Phan


“David! Just been watching your keynote on The reality of women, sex and relationships. Awesome stuff. I came across your work during a pretty dark time in my life. I’m not exactly out if it yet, but just wanted to say thank you, man! You have helped me work through some very troubling times.”—Bill Russell


“I just wanted to show my appreciation and thanks for the way you have changed my life for the better. I follow and implement everything You say and you have no idea how much it has helped me.”—Matt Poland


“I just thought I’d post here that I am almost through module 1 of Invincible. The information, guidance, and thought-provoking material already presented is almost overwhelming. But, I was happier today than I have been in a long time. It is really interesting to feel a slight mental change. Today, I didn’t look at much outside of myself. It is fun and exciting. Eight weeks of this should prove very, very productive. Be great!”—Cory Wilkins


“Hello David, in these videos you are showing me an amazing stuff, really. Every day all people changing. And with your help, I started to communicate with other peoples who I have never seen before, and every day I learn some new social skills.Yesterday i was in a bar, and i met a new girl, and i was able to use a desire system and how to talk with her.Thanks for your videos.You are the best teacher.Im waiting for the other amazing videos.Have a nice day!”—David Kovacs


“You’re already making the world here in the Washington DC area a better place. As I come across people who are interested in why male / female relationships fail, if they seem interested, I share your name and links to your Aura site and free materials. The lady I just talked to in our apartment management office was nearly in tears just hearing me describe the basic stuff I’ve already learned because she was so grateful just to “understand why” her past relationships have failed (I share your stuff with women and men because clearly, it will help anyone who is intelligent). I’ll figure out how to afford and take the Invincible course soon. Cheers.”—Greg Vanderberg


“Hello David Tian, just wanted to give big thanks and shout out for all the great material you provided us with. These past weeks have been life-changing for me, not just in my love life but in general. Cus of your tips I stopped my bad habits of wasting time and started on a journey full of new experiences. I have even started my own online business. So thank you so much, best regards.”—Malik K.


“Thank you for all you did for me. I’m getting married next month due to all I learned from you.. thank you. If you ever need me to be on the show to let the world know your real. I would be honored.”—Aldo Serrano


“I love your advice about energy and vibe because all my life I’ve been quite an emotional vampire that needs other people to cheer me up. Now I’m more in control of my mood, cheering myself up using hip-hop music or YouTube videos so I can contribute more energy to my interactions with others, and I’ve seen nothing but positive feedback from my friends.”—Hadian P.


“Hey, David! I have had you as a mentor now in my life for a little over a month. I want to say for starters, I see you are a man of great value, and you inspire me to be a better person. You’re fucking awesome! I want my life to surrounded by people like you!”—Richard Roman


“After watching and implementing your free content leading up to Limitless, I went out to the club to apply it. Later in the evening, I was on the dance floor and got a tap on the shoulder. I turned around to a beautiful blonde woman staring into my eyes. She told me “I love you”.

How could I not buy your course after this? I’ve never had something feel so effortless. Regards.”—Richard Roman


“I’ve watched a few of you videos and I’ve learned a lot about many different things. They have helped me open my eyes to many different things especially how to fix relationship problems even the most simple ones. Just knowing the information you have thought me might help save my relationship with the woman of my dreams.—codywheeler269@gmail.com


“Hey David, I just finished Invincible and I can’t thank you enough for putting this course together. My confidence is at an all-time high and the ease in which I am attracting women still blows my mind.”—Jeff P.


“Thank you, Dr. David. thank you again for making this group and videos. You’ve thought me a lot. I’ve always been into working out and bettering myself but your page kinda give me a sense of direction of how to mentally better myself. I never knew I had White Knight syndrome or some form of neediness when I was dating, but I’ve learned a lot being in this group, thank you again Dr. D.”—Tommy P.


“Hey, David. Just wanna say your courses are awesome thank you for putting so much effort into educating people about the developmental program mistakes and how to fix them.”—Angus Y.


“I recently finished Module 11 of Rock Solid Relationships. Stick with it till the end guys, it’s worth it!
It took me 20 weeks opposed to 11 but I learned a lot and intend to go back to modules I didn’t quite grasp initially. Some of the material was reminder work “for me” but then I imagine I am much older than most of you; trust me when I say Listen and Pay Attention, if I knew all this stuff in my 20’s and 30’s the pain I felt throughout most all my relationships would possibly never have happened.
Since my divorce, I kinda went on a slut rampage but it gradually tapered off. I found myself constantly going after the same self-absorbed model types and repeating old habits, recently I found One that’s a Sociology professor AND mentally Mature AND good looking, she’s a pleasant change.
Honestly without this program and the changes I’ve made, I do not think this girl would have ever seen me as someone worth having and possibly I for her.”
—Rick O.


“Just completed module 8 and the man who I am today is unrecognizable compared to when I started.

You and your Invincible program have trained me to become the most confident, self respected, and proud I have ever been in my life.

My family sees it, my friends see it, girls see it, but most importantly I see it!

I even in the past couple months was able to use the mindset i developed to make more friends, go out with and hook up with bunch of new girls, gain respect in my workplace from peers and leadership, and now won the affection of a beautiful girl who recently became my girlfriend.

In the past I would’ve been like “why is she with me” but now I’m like “ofcourse she’s with me…why wouldn’t she be…I’m the best thing for her.”

In short I’m building my Superhero Self and am committed to continuing to train and grow.

I am extremely grateful for the opportunity you have given me to work through this program and the ability to keep reviewing the material and going through the exercises.

Thanks for everything! I’m on my way to my destiny and I’ll let you know how it looks when I get there! Greatness is just ahead! But first it’s onto module 9 for me!

Your student,”—Jeff E.

What does the Aura experience mean to you?

Aura has played a huge part in my life. For me, it’s a life-changing experience from how I dress, walk, talk and most importantly, the way I think. It means a lot to me. It’s making me into a better man.

Let’s talk about my image, which has improved a lot since I joined AURA. I used to be called a “geek” or “nerd” by my friends who had no idea of the right haircut, how to dress or what personal care products I should have. I was really confused about buying the right clothes for me before I joined Aura. With the help of David and other Aura members, I have improved tremendously in my fashion sense.

In the past, I had tried to lose weight but none of the attempts were really fruitful. Back in early June, I went for David’s frequent 1-on-1, and I remember vividly that he gave me a lot of advice including having a healthier body. I was a bit shocked at that time as David was kind of “EXPLOSIVE” while he told me those things. It somehow planted a seed in me. After that day, I started to embark on the journey to lose weight. Within 3 months, I lost about 10 kg.’s and I’m still working towards my target of becoming another BIG POPPA PIMP, hahaha (i.e., brother DESL, the champion bodybuilder).

Ever since I joined Aura, I have done a lot of things which in the past, I would have thought was impossible like making friends with beautiful female strangers on the streets, being comfortable in clubs, talking to many strangers on any occasions, etc. AURA really helped me to push my edge and go beyond my comfort zone. I’m grateful for that.

Other than that, my life has been so much more fulfilled with lots of learning. I appreciate the fact that David has a scholarly background. He has recommended us lots of good books and resources. In his teachings, David quotes from different books and relates them to the Social Arts. Reading has been a big part of my life and with recommended books by David, I have really enjoyed the process of self development with his feedback and guidance.

Overall, I am really thankful that I joined AURA. It’s one of the best decisions I have made in my life.
The only thing I regret is I should have joined AURA earlier.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

There are sooo many things I like about the Aura experience.

Firstly, I like the fact that it helps me to improve myself in any social situation from approaching, making connections, transitioning from phase to phase, generating attraction, etc. Back in the day when I was still a “geek”, what I’m doing in social situations now was really impossible even to conceive of. Now, I can say that I’m comfortable going into any social situations even when I am alone.

Other than that, I like how David is very knowledgeable and always gives his best in conducting classes, giving advice in 1 on 1, replying to FRs, pushing us in RockStar Night and enhancing the contents of AURA. Quoting Lt Walker, “this guy is legit man”. I can feel David’s dedication and enthusiasm in helping all of us to becoming a better man. For me, he is more than a DATING COACH as he teaches us
about philosophy, psychology and other aspects of life.

I also like the very friendly culture of AURA brothers. There are always some brothers who we can seek help from when we are stuck or lost. We hang out together and become real life friends. I always remember how a few AURA members give me advice and show up at clubs just for me. In the Forum, you can see almost everyone contribute to the richness of the contents. You can get tips on life, free
ebooks, travel tips, insider advice on the club scene, etc. Nowadays, I’ll visit the AURA FORUM at least once a day and http://auradating.com/forum.html is consistently my most visited website in my Mozilla Firefox.

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

The Academy basically has 99.999% of what is required for us to achieve our goals in the SOCIAL ARTS. My main advice to new Aurjandro is to make full use of all the resources in the Academy.

First and foremost, please embark on the journey with an open mind and be non-judgemental of what you learn in the Academy. Please let go of your ego while learning in the Academy. This will help a lotin your learning.

Please attend all the classes you can or listen to the recordings and then, do all the assignments you can. If you attend classes, do ask questions, be vocal and participate as much as possible in the drills. All these will help crystallise David’s teaching in your mind.

Other than that, attend all the activities organized by the Academy, like the frequent 1-on-1’s, Rock Star Night, Overseas Trips, etc. Through all these activities, you will gain enormously useful experiences. Humans learn through experiences, and they help us to grow. Quoting David in one of the class recordings, “F*CKING COME TO 1-ON-1 MAN!!!” Prepare your questions and go to 1-on-1. I’m sure
David will give his best to answer your questions. Even if you don’t have any specific questions, it’s also good to hang out with David at the 1-ON-1 as he will chat with you and then, find out your progress followed by some invaluable advice’s.

Always TAKE ACTIONS and do not be afraid to take risks. You may make mistakes but the main thing is through mistakes, you’ll learn. It’s important to get FEEDBACK from David and other mentors. One very efficient way to do this is to post your FRs in the AURA forum. Writing FRs not only allows us to get feedback but also lets us REFLECT on what went well and what should have done better.

Last but not least, I just want to quote from AURA103: “How well you do in the social arts reflects your mechanics and your attitude, not your innate ability”. We all must be responsible for our learning. Everything has been laid out for you in the Aura Academy but you have to TAKE ACTION. So, ARE YOU READY, BRO?

Bernard L., Current Achievement Level: Ambassador

What does the Aura experience mean to you?

Life-changing. The experience in the Academy not only makes me better with women but also with the people around me such as my former managers and all.

Back in the day, just approaching a person to ask for the time was hard for me. But now, I’m able to tell myself to go to a person I would like to know and make connections with him/her. I truly appreciate that I’m able to make more friends and connect with them.

The fact that I’m happier right now – being able to achieve my goals and being happier about myself has left me with no regrets in joining the academy.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

Getting pushed to the limits by David and the wing girls has got to be one of the best experiences to ever get. Allowing myself to get my butt kicked by David in-field, in classes and on 1 on 1s each time AND getting my butt kicked by the wing girls in drills have never failed to get me improving…and the memories of it just bring a smile to my face because they are priceless.

The experiences of getting pushed to the limits by myself and the people that I have dated and met in the clubs/streets are really enjoyable and challenging. Looking back at how pathetic and funny I was on my journey, it is really easy to conclude that it is indeed the journey and the process which is more enjoyable than the destination and result.

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

Make use of every opportunity you can find or create to improve yourself. When the coaches ask for an answer, try answering that question. When they’re asking who wants to do the drills on the stage, get up there. Go for as many 1-1 coaching as possible with a list of questions, and listen well.

Go for the Rockstar Nights and ask for feedback on your performance. And always, remember to write your FRs so that you will be able to reflect on what you have done and how you can improve yourself.

Always be humble and remember to take yourself like an empty glass of water. We all suck, that’s why we’re in the Academy in the first place. Accept criticisms well so that you can improve yourself.

And very importantly – dare to try out new things. I bet that there are many things that the coaches will tell you to do that you will not feel 100% comfortable doing. Things such as physical touch and trying out new styles of fashion might not get you comfortable in the first place but just do it.

As time passes and you get used to trying them, you will find out yourself how much you have improved.

What does the Aura experience mean to you? What do you like about the Aura experience?

‘Liberating’ is the first word that comes to my mind. The first time I saw David live in the free seminar and just stepping onstage to do a direct opener demonstration was stepping out of my very small comfort zone then. How times have changed and there is so much more to look forward to the future.

I still vividly remember my Admissions Congress experience. It was the first time I had approached that many girls and I knew from then on I had made the right decision in trusting both myself and David to help me make the changes in my life that I had so long been dreaming of.

I’ve gone through many ups and downs throughout my 6 months in Aura thus far. Sometimes I have felt that I was not progressing as I have envisaged and I felt really down and helpless.

These were times when Aura Academy has helped me so much. From the teachings/scolding/pushing by Dr. David to the backing by fellow academy members. Notable high points were meeting incredible people along the journey (great mentors and friends such as David, Jonathan, Lt.Walker, Kingpin) who pushed me really hard yet were always there to listen and help me out with the challenges I was facing in this journey towards social freedom and becoming a more attractive person. ! I also made so many new great friends who share the same passions and challenges as myself, and we have had great times during our bromance sessions debriefing, reflecting and sharing with each other on our lives, dreams and goals. ! Another turning point for me was the Bootcamp with David and Christian Hudson. It’s funny/amazing as I had a premonition in a dream that taking this Bootcamp was going to take me to the next level in terms of social skills. I feel I benefitted tremendously from the teachings, mindset resets and overall infield practice immediate feedback I got from the Bootcamp.

It was my first same night hook-up that weekend, and this broke many many mental barriers which I previously had.

The experience for me is more than getting laid and girls. It is about a process of finding my true identity, and I feel I am slowly but surely beginning/progressing to live the life that I always wanted to and believed that I so rightfully deserved. (Man can’t believe tears keep rolling down as I write this!!)

It’s about making amazing connections with people whom I have now gained the confidence to go out and meet and make our lives better for one another.

More importantly, it taught me to invest in myself and take the risks and actions to make my life better and happier.

There is no better satisfaction than that. Discovering the world of women has been such an enlightening (although fearful at times) experience for me.

I loved everything in this Aura experience (from the pain to the ecstasy of joy). I’ve learned tons more about myself as well as others than any other point in my life.

My sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who has played their part in my journey.

Thank you so much for the tremendous life lessons in helping me make the changes I’ve wanted in my life and also for being an inspiration for me to strive towards:)

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

Live life as if today was your last and go beyond your edges as the benefits and joys are limitless and so fulfilling!

Please go for 1-1’s (these are GOLD!!)

I’ve benefitted so much when I started to write FR’s on a consistent basis and started implementing David’s recommendations. Writing FRs has also made me evaluate and reflect on my interactions in a more profound way and its like I go through them vividly all over again.

Have a plan (e.g going to clubs on a biweekly basis and trying new things that you’ve learned).

Until the next time

What does the Aura experience mean to you? 

The Aura experience is definitely one of the most valuable and memorable experiences of my life. David, the Aurjandros, and the mentors have taught me so many things about life. Making new friends and meeting new people are some of the best experiences in Aura.

Aura doesn’t only teach you to be a social man, Aura teaches you to be a man who is full of passion, goals, and dreams. Aura also teaches you how to be an attractive alpha male. Being an alpha male is the most important aspect of attraction. Learning to be an alpha male doesn’t only teach you how to be good with women, but how to be good with everybody. Aura has made me understand not only how women think but how people think. You will never see life the same way after Aura.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

The Aura experience, I don’t just like the Aura experience. I LOVE IT!

The best part about the Aura experience is the people around you. The peer support group is the major drive in my journey in Aura. It is definitely difficult for David alone to take care of every Aurjandro, so the culture of taking care of each other is really the best thing about the Aura experience. Nowadays when I go to clubs looking for fun and meeting new people, Aurjandro is the first in my guest list. They are always there through thick and thin. Everyone helps one another. The Ambassadors are really respectable as they spend time with you and give you awesome advice. Nobody looks down on anybody. We all learn from one another.

The Aura experience teaches you to live life even more happily. Aurjandro teaches one another how to go to clubs for free (I have saved a lot of money out of this). Peer support has helped me a lot. I never felt alone. If I ever feel very down or demotivated, Aurjandro jump in and boost me up, giving me a whole lot of energy to keep going. The best part of the Aura Culture is really Aurjandro helping one another wholeheartedly.

The Aura experience has made me meet new people, recently, Christian Hudson. I am wanting to meet more of these mentors who you will learn a lot from. Learning never ends in Aura. There is always new things to learn, to revise. I have taken so many notes in Aura that taking notes in school have suddenly become the norm for me (before Aura, I never take personal note of anything I learn in school ). The Aura experience has definitely turned me into a better man.

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

The first thing you MUST do when you first enter Aura is to make friends with ALL the Aurjandro (especially Ambassadors and above). Be a friendly guy and learn from everyone. Invite Aurjandros to events, outings, coffee sessions, and Gym sessions (they are awesome). Learn and APPLY! Invite Aurjandro to hangout sessions to meet new people and club with them. It’s a really motivating factor as you will feel so weird if you become an AFA among Aurjandro, and the environment drives you to be a better social man. Making friends and getting to know Aurjandro aisan absolute must!

Next thing you should do is to download ALL the classes, take extensive notes and LEARN! Be serious in learning and APPLY! Every time you get stuck, go for the one on one’s (even if you’re not stuck and you’re free, just go, you will always learn something new). ALWAYS and always be on the good side of David. If he tells you to change something, YOU BETTER DO IT! Take criticism and bad experiences as learning points (this is what changed me). After Aura, I didn’t care about what others thought. Everything I do, whether right or wrong, I took it as a learning experience. THROW YOUR EGO ASIDE! Don’t get emotional about mistakes you have done, just change and learn from it. David might be very fierce and strict with you, TAKE IT LIKE A MAN!

David’s Music (you should know what music is :P) is what drove me to handle my Approach Anxiety. I progressed faster than some of my peers due to this, an approach is not a problem for me now.

In short, make good friends and keep in contact with everyone you meet through Aura. Learn everything and put your ego aside.

JUST BRING IT!

What does the Aura experience mean to you? 

Transformation.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

I like the fact that it’s gotten me RESULTS. Before starting the Academy, I didn’t know what I was doing or how to attract a girl. Now I’m dating new girls every week. I have the power to walk up to a hot girl I see at the bus stop or street and meet her. It’s amazing.

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

Be open to change. Welcome criticism. David is not just a teacher. He’s also a coach. Coaches aren’t always nice to their players. Sometimes they have to be harsh to get their point across. It’s because he sees more in you than you see in yourself.

As David’s said to me before, once we enter the Academy, we are no longer the customers. We are the product. The beautiful women of the world are the real customers! And the Aura coaches (David, Lt. Walker, Kingpin, Christian Hudson) are there to ensure that they produce the highest quality products. It’s like Apple making sure they don’t produce any defective iPhones. They are quality control. Trust them and do what they say. Try out their advice in the real world first before questioning it. Let them make you the best you can be.

Practice a lot. Aura gives you all the information you need to excel, but you need to go out there and apply it, practice it. When David is there in person for coaching, don’t just run away from him because you’re scared he’ll push you outside your comfort zone. Ask him to watch you and give you feedback.

We’ve signed up for a whole year. So take a long-term perspective. Many want to see gradual incremental progress. They want to see better results each week (like 5 numbers this week and then 7 numbers the next week) or else they get frustrated. But real growth is never that way. It happens in dips and peaks. Although the dips can be tough and depressing, the highs just keep getting better and better. It’s when we step back and look at the longer term trajectory, that’s when we’re blown away by how much we’ve developed over the weeks and months. And with all the value Aura is giving us, my only regret is that I didn’t sign up sooner.

Anton L., Current Achievement Level: Acolyte

What does the Aura experience mean to you? 

The Aura experience for me is about growth. It’s about developing myself to a level in which I have a choice and options in the important aspects of my life. It’s about being honest with who I currently am and growing that person to a level that is capable of the things that I have dreamed of. It’s about being with a group of people who are committed to their own personal growth, and who share the same desire for holistic growth as people… that is, a level of greatness in all areas of life.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

Aura is about progress. I know that the coaches are competent and knowledgeable, so this puts me at ease in knowing that I have come to the right place. When first starting out one needs to know that those they are learning from can be trusted, and it doesn’t take long after going through the experience to realize that indeed, Aura Academy is at the top of the game.

In knowing that those doing the teaching and the materials being presented are top notches, I can direct my attention to the aspects that are my areas of responsibility.

The Aura experience of having a group of people who know my desired outcomes, know how to assist me in achieving my desired outcomes, and be so accessible makes this journey less time consuming and more enjoyable.

I know that my time won’t be wasted because the community values action and progress, and with that, David will be honest in his observations of my progress and field reports. The honesty and direct way in which I am guided is extremely valuable, as it ensures that I am aware of the true causes that need to be directly addressed.

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

KNOW what you want – Clearly define for yourself your vision of what it is you desire to achieve by going through Aura.

Accept 100% responsibility – Although the resources, guidance, and group are there, you will not just magically become successful through their work and association. The decision points, internal dialogue, comprehensions, action and genuine learning and growth of you as a person are your own responsibility, and no one can do this for you. Hope is not a strategy. This means that you will have to directly do the work. “If the bus isn’t coming, you had better start walking.”

Get Ready to Work – Make sure you are very clear of what is involved – scheduling your time to the lessons, the training days, rock star nights, going out to try the materials, journal writing, writing field reports. As stated above, YOU will be doing this.

Commit – Make the decision that you will do what it takes to achieve what you’ve envisioned. This might seem obvious, but when I first started on my journey, I was one of those guys who thought that I would just pay the money to be a part of it all, and things will just magically happen for me. Not so. Obviously, I have to do something, too. Accept responsibility, know what you will have to be doing, and commit to doing them.

Utilize the community aspect of the Academy – Your fellow Aurjandro is going through or has gone through what you are experiencing. Utilize their wisdom, but still, acknowledge what is solely your responsibility.

Consistency/Persistence – Know that getting to where you envision yourself to be will come from the accumulation of small successes, small changes in your behavior another night. It will not all come overnight, so stay consistent with your behavior another night. It will not all come overnight, so stay consistent with the tiny adjustments and changes and be persistent, and eventually the accumulation of all the tiny, sometimes seemingly insignificant gains will add up to you waking up one day with two airline stewardesses, one on each side of you in bed, and a big grin on your face. (Or whatever your version of success in this area looks like to you.)

Mindset is very important – Because success isn’t going to happen overnight but through the accumulation of tiny gains and success. You must hold strong in the face of what many might view of as “failure”.

You will get rejected. You will make mistakes. You will have to face some of your fears. BUT, what’s been helping me as of late, is associating all of this, good and bad, with fun! The process can be and is fun when you take on the right mindset.

Bo L., Current Achievement Level: Acolyte

What does the Aura experience mean to you?

Knowing oneself as we are now, what we want to be, and going about becoming that person.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

The open, non-judging, and accepting nature of the mentors & peers. Aurjandro surrounds me with their enthusiasm, determination, persistence, and their zest for improvement. An environment conducive to developing into the ideal self of my choice inside the classroom & beyond, in the aspect of “dating” & beyond. An environment suitable for developing my life into the one I want it to be

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

It isn’t enough to get the concepts into your head. You will be taught a lot in Aura, but you need to know which ones are relevant to you (varies as you progress). I’ll just list a few “hacks” that you can use to maximize your results with the minimal effort.

1. 80/20 principle – 80% of the results come from 20% of input – the 20% varies from person to person… identify your 20%

2. Practice the lessons you learn.

3. Report your practice for feedback – the best way to learn is to not only know what went wrong but also to know what went right. Feedback from the instructors on your reports allows you to customize what is taught & make it your own.

4. Last, but not the least – do not compare yourself with others. Each person comes in with their own goals (which change as time goes by). Know yourself, and work on being the best you can be. ! This is just one point of view… I’m sure that you will also be proud to call yourself an Aurjandro!

WELCOME!

Carpe Diem! -G

George M., Current Achievement Level: Acolyte

What does the Aura experience mean to you?

It means a lot to me – especially so when you continually strive to better yourself day by day. You could feel you are improving – just by looking at the mindsets that you’ve acquired, the interactions you have with people, the way you carry yourself, etc. Just a few tweaks in my socially programmed mind was all it took to unleash my potential. I still feel that I have not yet reached the best of myself, but I am certainly proud to say that I am a much more polished individual as compared to just a year ago.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

I like the fact that we are united in our common goal to improve ourselves as better men; everyone is encouraging and gives feedback to each other to improve each other as better individuals. All those moments we spend together, bantering about and taking a piss at each other – I know this might sound gay but I cherish those moments especially. It’s really nice to see the guys you started off with, and the ones soon after, are improving day by day. It is indeed satisfying that, though how indirectly I contributed to their development, you can see them at end of just 6 months – they are much more becoming a complete package.

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

Go all out to improve yourself. Balance is the key – between leading a normal active life and also setting aside time for socializing.

Sonny L., Current Achievement Level: Ambassador

What does the Aura experience mean to you?

It means making a commitment to take time to attend evening classes (or at the very minimum, listen through the recordings + page through those Powerpoint slides by yourself) and, more importantly, to put in the time and effort to change and remake yourself. It has been challenging along the way – sleep deprivation over Rockstar and non-Rockstar nights (I’ve never been an avid clubber), funny looks from family and relatives from the changes in my wardrobe and dressing, and developing this inner voice nagging about tonality, body language, and eye contact. (But if nagging is required to improve, I’m all for it. Nag more! :))

But all in all, Aura has been (and still is) an extremely edifying experience with many worthwhile memories made and friendships forged.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

I think what’s distinctive about Aura is in the impact it has had on my life, most probably due to the sheer duration & community built around it – it’s not like those (expensive) seminars or boot camps that pump you full of info or feel-good emotions but in terms of impact, leaves much wanting. I also appreciate the comraderie and esprit de corps from fellow Aurjandro, those experienced ‘old-birds’ (for their invaluable insights + feedback), as well as the new joiners (by spurring me to live up to their expectations). And of course, for providing a shoulder to commiserate on, or simply provide a good, sorely-needed berating :).

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

Be involved! Ask questions, participate, and of course, help others if you can. Esprit de corps + pay it forward :)).

Daniel T., Current Achievement Level: Acolyte

What does the Aura experience mean to you?

I’ll be able to grow in terms of my inter-personal and intra-personal communication skills. The experience has made me more socially active, and I’m on my way to achieve my goal as a more socially attractive real man.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

  •  Practical drills in class to practice my socializing skills with dating coaches to observe and pinpoint my sticking points
  • 1 on 1 private consultations that allow me to ask any questions regarding dating
  • Rock Star Nights at various clubs to practice in-field what I’ve learned to apply in real-life situations, thereby calibrating and improving my social skills and self-development with each Rock Star Night practices
  • Most importantly, fellow Aurjandro whom I’ve met who are more experienced in the dating and socializing dynamics and are willing to help me improve myself. More friendship bonds are established as well.
  • Field report feedback from our dating coaches to pinpoint our sticking points, thereby improving with every social interaction.
  • Female dating coach present to give us a female perspective of the socializing and dating world and to give us valuable fashion advice on how to look sexually attractive

What advice would you give new Aurjandro on how to make the most of their time in the Academy?

  • Go to classes often and don’t be shy to take up the drill lessons
  • Socialize as much as possible with the members of the opposite gender to get used to talking to ladies, if you’ve only been talking to guys for your past entire life
  • Be daring to ask a lady out for dates, even if your social skills currently aren’t top notch, so as to learn real-life lessons from your mistakes.
  • Be as detailed as possible in writing your field reports, so that you can identify your sticking points and handle them fast!
  • Don’t be shy to ask questions, that’s the most crucial advice!
Thomas T., Current Achievement Level: Acolyte

What does the Aura experience mean to you?

I like that it takes a practical approach to life, in that what David teaches has been battle-tested and is not just theory. I also like that I have learned which areas to concentrate on, i.e., body language to a larger extent than the verbal aspect of communication.

What do you like about the Aura experience?

I would advise them to go to the 1 on 1 with David, to hang out with members more advanced than themselves too.

Also to prepare for the class by listening to previous recordings, and not only to rely on David to teach but also ask other Aura members any questions they need clarifying regarding their sticking points. Also, take up yoga or a form of exercise that improves posture. As well, try doing extensive reading around topics that David covers.
