Maybe Owen Cook IS helping! I just had this idea in my head that the person he's insulting starts beating the shit out of Owen, and Owen starts cheering him on "Yes! That is the alpha way! Keep hitting me, you are learning how to be better!!"

A lot of motivational speaking comes off as super condescending or invalidating to me as an autistic woman that struggles to just barley get through each moment of each day,…especially this asshole,.. “just *stop* being uncomfortable with yourself, just do it” -Its that fucking easy,.anxiety doesn’t exist, your trauma & life circumstances don’t exist,..🙄😔

I'm tempted to go to one of this guys motivational speeches so I could stand up and just say "you're wrong, you're so wrong and weird and wtf are you even saying?" Because like, what is he gonna do? I'm standing up and confronting him like an alpha would so unless he wants to admit hes wrong, hes just gonna have to shut up

As someone with severe depression and who struggled with motivation for years, this guy actually does motivate me to keep going, solely for the miniscule possibility that I could meet him and thus have the chance to smack him upside the head.

"Just stop being uncomfortable with yourself, problem solved." Oh thanks dude that was so helpful I wonder why I never thought of that. I guess this is why he's a motivational speaker. 🤔

My school hired a motivational speaker after our mental health evaluation came back and like 90% of people were depressed and unmotivated because of school. Well the motivational speaker used to be a boxer and calls himself "The Spaniard" BUT HE ISNT SPANISH, HE WAS A SPANISH TEACHER. He also did a backflip on stage and talked about how his mum died of cancer and almost cried. But like idk it was hilarious and so generic, I could do the whole thing for him

He didn't say that people being too nice was the worst part about being in a wheelchair, he said it would be the worst for him, because he cares about people givng him constructive critisism more than most. That means that he uses critisism and insults to get his point across, similar to Terence Fletcher in whiplash.. While I don't agree with that, that's the point of going to his seminar or watching his videos. That's what they signed up for. But I think this should be a little more clear before you go to his seminar. That guy watching Owen for 5 years should know by now exactly what to expect, thats on him.

I think the guy Owen was actually made fun of by guys like this. Then, he decided to enact revenge by making this fake class for this kind of guy to pay for to make them into manly alpha males that dominate everyone. Then, he proceeds to bully THEM. It makes TOO much sense. Heheheje😆🤓. I’m high

An especially silly aspect to this "alpha" male fervor is that it meant something very specific regarding women in its inception. Kurtis has mentioned how the theory was eventually disregarded by its founder. Well part of the theory was that the "alpha" would mate with every sexually mature female in the group. Or at least would have a monopolized choice on mate availability. Like there weren't several alphas, there was a single defined one. Of course this type of thing would only happen in captivity too. Wolves aren't like that in the wild. Very often a pack is closely related. Parents with a group of matured cubs and some cousins of theirs for example

3:53 whenever i decide to go and speak in fronta a crowd, this is what i picture myself as. When i was a kid, my so called bestie and i decided to sing in front of a whole crowd and this mofo yeeted himself leaving me to do it alone. altho i could finish my mission cuz i had this super cool memory retention thingy in my brain or sth, i came out as a robotic voice and altho everyone clapped for me, i knew that i kinda didnt do it quite well cuz i got backstabbed by my first best friend. Thats when i learnt 2 things- singing isnt for me, and never ever ever let your guard down. fast forward 8-10 years in my life and now, i tried to turn a new leef but got no friends cuz idk why but i always think people always act weirdly strange and they support their actions as if its kinda cool. for eg tiktok or sth. ignoring them, i tried making some more friends and ended up again betrayed. so now i got nobody to show what i really am and now im all alone and now its a continuous cycle of self damage cuz im at this point where neither do i know what i am, nor do i know if ill ever be able to express what i really am and now im just a self centered dumbass bitch. to summarise, i got e-shoes and to an extent i can express myself online better cuz then i dont have to see anyone's face and remind me of my gory singing past. i can barely talk and keep up a chat offline for more than a minute cuz my brain goes all blanky cuz shits all messed up. im trying to get past this shit myself because i dont want anyone's help because i dont wanna end up hurting them and do crazier shit. press F if you do see the power of self-yeet on others.

Tl;dr at the end So i actually have been to quite a few Owen events, I think the last one I went to was in early 2019. It was a very positive experience and I very much credit it to helping me come out of that aforementioned dark time in my life. Owen is a complete enigma of a person and would do some really weird things at the event, totally different from how I've seen a lot of other motivational speakers operate. He never talked first at the events, he liked to walk around the venue and sit next to random people, he would watch the crowd while another speaker was on, and he has an uncomfortably captivating stare. That clip in the video where he is "fixing" that one guy was part of an exercise about being able to project your voice without yelling; Owen used to run a company called Real Social Dynamics, and part of that was helping guys project their voices over the loudness of a bar/club. I actually volunteered to do that activity at an event I went to, and even though it didn't teach me to project my voice any better (I'm a pretty loud person already) it most certainly helped me with my anxiety of going on stage. The whole bullying thing is a bit misrepresented here, but its not like he doesn't bully you lol. He does it in a controlled way, and always tries to contextualize it with the idea of "it doesn't matter". When I say that, I don't mean he is encouraging bullying, the message always emphasized that someone laughing at you, a girl rejecting you, or other forms of social pressure like that don't actually harm or hurt you, and by playing those scenes as fearful episodes in your head you only stand to build an invisible and unstoppable monster. That's also sorta what he means when he uses the term "beta". Now like I said, I haven't been to one of these events in a bit, but when I was in the "RSD scene", beta sorta meant someone who would subject themselves to their own insecurities and fall victim to social anxiety, someone who would prefer to lie about and hide the things they enjoy with the hopes of being more socially accepted. Like most people think of beta as meaning the antithesis of the nebulous term Alpha, but Owen usually focused on Alpha being the antithesis of beta; its more important to him that you don't embody those negative things, and subject yourself to the torment of your minds invention, than it is about trying to be some perfect ideal "alpha male". The last thing I wanted to say was Owen's stance on motivational speakers is actually the same as Kurtis; the speakers he would bring there were always very negative towards the idea of getting yourself all hyped up for a few hundred bucks, only to wake up the next day and not have that energy anymore. Owen emphasized the importance of discipline and doing things. His idea was that the cycle went Doing into inspiration into motivation into doing again; if you never start actually doing the things you want to get done, no amount of inspiration or motivation can do it for you, so by starting the cycle on doing something, you can bypass the "man i just need to get motivated". Tl;dr: I loved my time going to Owen's events, they genuinely are 100% free but he still does offer an upsell to some special class after first speaker and again at the end. He is a weird guy, a very personable guy, and focuses more on the things you can discipline yourself to do, and less on the mental aspect of dealing with social anxiety. For me at the very least it worked well, when you meet him you get the impression that he genuinely wants to help people, but he talks and dresses like a fucking nerd. 8/10

You can tell which ones say generic BS for money and which ones have something meaningful to say. I once saw a motivational speaker who was a victim of extreme childhood abuse. She talked about how she personally learned to navigate life and form meaningful relationships while carrying around the weight of her experiences. That was years ago but I still think about it to this day. I got a lot from her speech.
