So what’s it’s like to do Rockstar? It’s to experience what it’s like to be fully alive, to be living life to the fullest, to be connected, to have beautiful experiences with some of the most alluring women you’ve ever met. To face some of your deepest fears and conquer them. To make dear new friends who’ll you’ll keep for life. To learn truth about yourself and connect with who you want to be.
You won’t recognize the person that comes out of the other side. If you have even a tiny voice that’s calling you towards this program then fill out the application, just do it, do it and send it right now. I promise you it’s one of the best decisions you will ever make in your entire life. Go, just go and do it now.
Wow, what a totally wild ride!
Dear reader, as my final duty as a Rockstar, I’ve been asked to write a review of the program to help inform those who may come to consider doing the program in the future. I should inform you in advance, no matter what words I write in the following paragraphs, I will ultimately fail to convey the emotion, intensity, challenge, excitement, magic and thrill of this program. There are no words that can fully communicate this, the only way to understand is to experience and live through it. In addition, there are elements of the program that work better as a surprise, so in the interests of the program, there are some things I will refrain from talking about here.
Perhaps a little of my story will help set the scene…. I’m an older guy that’s recently hit my forties. Like several others before me, I signed up to project rockstar to get over a broken heart. I figured it would be the quickest way to meet hundreds of beautiful women, in the hope I would meet one to take my mind off the one I’d lost. I also wanted to learn the skills so I could hopefully avoid ever being dumped again. Looking back at the last 10 weeks, I was right about meeting hundreds of beautiful women, but I had no idea just how much more this programme was going to give me. Exponentially more.
Rockstar actually starts three months before you arrive in Vegas with the mandatory fitness transformation program. To give you a sense of this, it involves hitting the gym seven days a week for about 2 hours a day, incorporates weights, cardio, yoga. If this wasn’t enough, you are also on a strict diet, having to cook and prepare all your own food. From a self discipline perspective, this was really challenging for me, especially as I travel a lot for my Job. My colleagues thought I was literally insane. I can safely say, this is something I would have never have done, or stuck to, outside of the support and framework of the program. The network of other rockstars on the program, and your assigned trainers provide a framework to achieve this you just wouldn’t on your own. I’ve been a casual gym goer most of my life… this taught me the essentials of body building, healthy diet, supplements, and the results you can get from a disciplined consistent application to a goal. I headed out to Vegas in the best shape of my entire life.
What can I say about Vegas… picture, if you can, living in a huge mansion, complete with swimming pool and hot tub, with eighteen guys who will become your closest friends, going out to some of the most amazing clubs in the world, with top DJ’s, surrounded by beautiful, fun women. Now picture that for a whole month 🙂
I am a pretty introverted guy in my forties, I honestly thought my days of going ‘clubbing’ had ended a decade ago. Truth be told, I never really enjoyed them when I used to go in my twenties. I would mostly be the guy in the corner, or at the bar, never feeling completely comfortable. That’s how I started my Rockstar. The first time I had to walk into Hakkasan, which is extremely loud, dark, and crowded (I am also a little claustrophobic) I was like a fish out of water. Didn’t want to talk to anyone, just wanted to leave. Some of the first nights were so difficult and so uncomfortable the idea of being able to have fun in a place like that seemed unimaginable to me.
The program focuses on both on “outer game” and “inner game”. The outer game gives you the skill set you need to talk to people in a natural way, that is congruent with who you are. The inner game addresses your inner beliefs which may be holding you back, preventing you from connecting, with the environment, the people you are talking to and ultimately yourself.
The outer game stuff is truly enlightening, the principles are often so simple to articulate verbally, but so challenging to apply and learn in the real world environment.
An element which was critically important and challenging for me was the focus on banter. This for me is probably one of the best lessons in the program. I must give honour and recognition to the house captain who dedicated almost every waking moment in the mansion encouraging sixteen highly intellectual people to drop a lifetime of logical behaviour and produce illogical conversation. Banter changes your interactions with everyone in your life for the better.
The inner game elements were equally enlightening. Whilst I would question the effectiveness of some of the personal interventions, the overall content gives a new perspective on the world which is genuinely life changing for me. When I signed up to the program I did not expect it to have such a strong spiritual element to it. Perhaps ironically the one thing that was probably the furthest thing from my mind when I signed up, is one of the elements of the program I am most grateful for.
Gradually over the days and weeks in Vegas the pieces came together. As we approached the third week in Vegas my experience in the clubs had totally changed. I was spending the nights in these amazing clubs, a few feet away from the world’s best DJ’s like Tiesto, with a huge group of mates. I was comfortably talking to 30-100 people a night, many of them the sort of beautiful women that would have intimidated me in the past. You know the type of girl that every man is looking at, but no one has the courage to approach. I’d gone from being a guy that stood in the corner meeting no girls, to a guy that on every night would meet at least one girl that I wanted to know better 😊 Most importantly, I was having fun.
Vegas was totally full on and wild. Whilst it had it’s moments of being stressful and extremely challenging, I can only describe it as a feeling of being fully alive, living life as a Rockstar I guess. I’ve been home for nearly two months now, and I still miss it, every week. That’s coming from a guy that used to hate nightclubs – that’s how much fun it is.
The road trip is the aspect of the program designed to know your fellow Rockstars and use the skills you’ve been learning without the help of the instructors. The Vegas schedule was so full on, there was actually very little time to get to know people, as you were either in Seminar, eating, or at club.
I won’t write much about it in this review, as each class chooses their own destinations, so it will be a very different experience for each year.
It is sufficient to say, that I have some amazing memories, beach clubs in Ibiza, watching Calvin Harris at Pacha, having dinner watching the sunset over the sea. Making some memorable connections with some really special women that I’ll never forget.
I also loved being able to spend time getting to know the people that I know consider my brothers.
The final part of the programme is in Sweden. My first time there, and I can say it’s lives up to it’s reputation. Beautiful women are literally everywhere. You’ll be served at Starbucks by people that should be models.
Part of the reason the program ends in Sweden is it’s a very challenging place to interact with people in the nightclubs. Firstly because they have really beautiful women, which can be intimidating. Secondly because the culture is one of fun, and culturally Swedish people tend to get uncomfortable after a conversation goes longer than five minutes and leave. It definitely tests the skills you’ve developed over the previous seven weeks. The program in general is much more relaxed than Vegas, and you have a lot more personal time, to experience the country, go shopping and meet people in your own time.
The Swedish leg of the trip encompassed the circle of truth at the start. The point of the circle is brutal truth from a place of love. If individuals have a difficult time in the circle, then a corresponding level of care is supposed to be provided to them in the days that follow. I found my circle particularly difficult, as did some of my fellow rockstars. Whilst I did come to accept the truths offered to me by the instructors in the weeks that followed, I felt the “care” and understanding was lacking for myself and several other Rockstars. For those first two weeks in Sweden, that day, and the ones that followed, tainted what had been, up to that point, an amazing experience. Part of the program is about getting the Rockstar that you need, not the one you want, it’s about facing difficult truths. That said, I would personally like to see a bit more care and understanding in this section of the course.
The last week in Sweden is when the partying reaches a new height. Vegas was wild, but the energy on the final night party of Sweden was something else. We had tables in THE most exclusive club in Sweden. The energy, fun and love between the people that had become my brothers, is really something special and unforgettable. The girls from the other tables around us, were attracted across to our table without us even speaking to them. We were honestly having too much fun to care 😊 One amazing night to end an amazing programme.
I’ve had a few months of being back home now, truth is there’s so much to process from the program I’m only just beginning to apply it to my life. The programme is actually just the start of the journey of personal development. I have no doubt my life will be very different to the one I was heading for before Rockstar.
It’s been challenging to keep the momentum going outside of the program, but we’ve all been doing our best. I returned to Sweden last weekend, went to a club with a fellow Rockstar. We spent the whole night having a blast with cute girl, after cute girl, without any real effort at all. A Swedish guy I was talking to asked me “are you single?”. I responded with my usual answer “it’s complicated”. He said to me, “you shouldn’t be, you’re slaying it!” So that’s testimony that if you want to be that guy in the club “Slaying it” with all the attractive blondes, this is the program for you 😊
So what’s it’s like to do Rockstar?
It’s to experience what it’s like to be fully alive, to be living life to the fullest, to be connected, to have beautiful experiences with some of the most alluring women you’ve ever met. To face some of your deepest fears and conquer them. To make dear new friends who’ll you’ll keep for life. To learn truth about yourself and connect with who you want to be.
You won’t recognise the person that comes out of the other side.
I don’t know you, but if you’ll indulge me, let me give you one piece of advice. If you have even a tiny voice that’s calling you towards this program (if you’ve read this far, I’m betting there is) then fill out the application, just do it, do it and send it right now. I promise you it’s one of the best decisions you will ever make in your entire life.
Look at it this way, if you send the application, you get accepted for interview, and you don’t like the sound of the program stop there. At least send the application. I’m 99.9% certain when you have that first interview, whatever hesitation you have in your mind right now, whether it’s about cost, or time, or how you’ll explain a 10 week holiday to your friends, all that will vanish.
Go, just go and do it now.
