Law 8: Make other people come to you – use bait if necessary
- When you force others to act, you’re in control.
- Make opponents come to you.
- Lure with gains, then attack.
Bring people into your reality. Do not bend and stretch to accommodate the lesser – attract them, genuinely or not, and wait. This is the fine line that separates the puppet from the master. This is pulling others into your frame.
This has been epitomized countless times in The Manosphere:
- Don’t go on a date with a girl if her friends are present
- In an LTR, you both operate in one reality – yours or hers
- Maintain frame (often over-used and under-explained)
Real Power is the degree to which a person has control over their own circumstances. Real Power is the degree to which we control the directions of our lives. – Rollo Tomassi
Real power is putting your entire reality above everything and everyone else. It is a my way or the highway mentality. It is you being the master, the boss, the King.
Luring: In the chapter, Greene talks about using bait to lure your enemies into your reality, giving you ultimate control. When luring others, you must appeal to their self-interest. Find their motivations and weaknesses. Put yourself in their position – see through their eyes, and give them what they
want need. Make them an offer they can’t refuse…
Pull them into your reality; into your frame. Act. Do not react.
