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?
