These code-thugs get all the chicks (and clients)

This a true story.

It’s from a friend about one of her high school classmates.

So, this chick seemingly has it all. She’s a lawyer with her law degree from an Ivy League school. She married a world-famous surgeon. Has an adorable little son with him. Muney, family, respect… everything you could want, right?

Yet, here she is about to throw it all away…

For some literal gangbanger.

She works as an appeals attorney.

She helps drug offenders who DID commit the drug crime… but they work to commute sentences that they believe are too long. And, in that, she “met someone”. A literal gangbanger who has a rap sheet a mile long (including violent offenses), face tats, illiterate… the whole 9 yards.

Yet, she goes to bed all wet just thinking about him.

Fantasizing about what he’ll do to her…

As she sleeps next to her husband and son.

And now that he’s out on parole…

The dirty little thoughts are in overdrive. It’s apparently everything she can do to keep from driving to this guy’s shack and riding him like a beat mule. She’s on the verge of throwing her entire life away, including her son, to jump this guy’s bones.

Again… true story.

The classic “bad boy”, home-wrecker tale of woe…

But, that’s how attraction works.

When you feel it, you feel it.

And, you can’t stop it.

Of course, if you’re a psychology nerd like me… what’s happening here is very simple. Her husband bends over backwards to make her happy, gives her everything she wants, never tells her no and makes soft, sweet love to her.

The other dude…

Would pull her hair, tell her to eff off, cheat on her…

And eff her brains out, gangsta-style.

He makes HER feel insecure…

And needy.

While her husband IS insecure and needy.

And, confidence = attraction.

Now, that doesn’t make her less of a dirtbag…

But, it’s just the way it works.

Even if you’re a violent, face-tattoed gangbanger.

Anyway, randomness today… but there’s a lesson here fellas. Confidence. It’s what matters. Not just with the ladies… but with clients, bosses, customers, etc. And, I don’t mean that fake ish… the real stuff. People can smell a fraud a mile away.

The more confident you are, the more things will fall into place for you.

But, the way you get REAL, authentic and long-lasting confidence isn’t by being a violent a-hole. Confidence comes from competence. Knowing what the hell you’re doing… and knowing that you know. And, the way you become a more confident (and attractive) coder is to become a master of your craft. To know your ish. When you do, the confidence will just ooze off of you.

And, others will just FEEL it.

(Clients, customers, friends, family… and yes… da ladies.)

Anyway, one way you can get there is this: http://johnmorrisonline.com/may

John and I have worked together on numerous projects. John is very quick and efficient and was a pleasure to work with.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.
