A beast jumps on a prey as soon as it’s hungry, and in the process, exposes itself to the risks of traps from other predators. A hunter, on the other hand, walks into every situation prepared. They walk into a situation, ready to take down their targets. That’s why, as a Black Falcon, you cannot settle for the abilities of a beast. You must also become a hunter, and the way to do that is by knowing how to lay out a plan.
To lay out a plan, you must have control, at least to some degrees, over 5 essential elements. These are:
It doesn’t matter how good your plan is, or what opportunities are given. To be successful, you must be the superior hunter. So you must keep improving yourself, and become a better Black Falcon. If you can do that, you’ll have a very strong foundation for success.
Resources in this case are defined as anything you need to attain your goals. Ideally, these resources should already be in your possession. However, in case that you don’t have all the resources you need, you must develop a plan that would give you access to these resources, and use it to achieve your goals.
When are you going to start on your goal, and when are you going to achieve it? These are the two questions you need to ask yourself as you are developing a plan. Also, you need to keep your eyes open for opportunities, which are often time sensitive, and time your plans so that you can take advantage of them.
Your Social Circle
The people around you can be your most valuable resources, if you use them properly Figure out what everyone’s strengths and weaknesses are, and how you can use that to achieve your goal. You should also figure out what kind of people you need in your social circle so that you can achieve your goal.
So how are you going to get your goal? How do you use the skills, the resources, and time you have to get your goal? Your strategy defines how you are going to act in accordance to your plan, so that you may get whatever it is you want.
Finally, keep your plans to yourself, or only share with those who you know you can trust. This will make your plans more effective as you are executing them.

Black Falcons thrive on the night scene. Through interacting with others, we gain the skills we need to win people over, and let them help us with our quest.
But the night scene is also the hunting ground for another breed of hunters: the pickup artists. These hunters thrive on the affection of others, and the more people they seduce, the more active they become.
The pickup community is also one of the fastest growing communities out there. These hunters, mostly men, are out and about every chance they get, trying to perfect their seduction techniques so they can more effectively conquer their targets.
But members of this community don’t seem to have the dignity, or even the realization, of a hunter.
This could be a gross generalization of course. After all, from what we can see, there are many factions of pick up communities. So it is possible that some of them, like we Black Falcons, actually carry themselves with dignity. But when we step into a club, almost always we see these pickup artists performing for the women they desire, hoping that their performance will gain the women’s approval.
True hunters never bow down to their prey, and in many ways, these pick up artists are doing just that. The way they perform for the women in clubs are no different than the way a street performer would hold out an empty hat, then sing, dance, or perform magic to try to win over some spare change. They may win a few nights of glory playing their game, but every time we Black Falcons see the same pick up artists performing in the same clubs, it becomes obvious to us that despite their victories, they really have not grown.
The book that most pick up artists today follow, called “The Game” seems to be more evident t this fact.
The techniques within the book suggest that the pickup artist first make himself stand out by wearing ridiculous clothes and gadgets. Then starting to talk to a woman, “nag” the target by saying things like “too bad I’m gay, otherwise I’ll be totally into you.” The combine the nags with “kino,” that is, apparently, a fancy way of saying to physically touch the girl, and then slowly ease the girl into sleeping with the pickup artist.
What the book should have taught readers is, instead, how to improve themselves so that they’re naturally attractive. After all, while these pickup artists walk into a club, and start performing magic to the women, plenty of men can actually simply walk in, start a conversation, and immediately, they’ve already won the girl.
As for integrating the pickup arts to the Black Falcons’ community…well…if the Game is any indication, it won’t happen anytime soon.

Black Falcons, now is the time you take everything you have learned so far, and show the world what it means to be a Black Falcon.
So what do you have to do?
Simple: all you have to do is go to a public social location, such as a café, a restaurant, or a lounge, strike up a conversation, and introduce yourself as a Black Falcon. Sounds simple doesn’t it?
So let’s make this game more challenging. After introducing yourself as a Black Falcon, your goal is to get the person excited about the Black Falcons, and get their contact information so that you can send them the information they need to realize their potential as Black Falcons. Do this every day, and each day, you want to collect more contacts than the previous day.
When you are first starting out, this is probably what’s going to happen:
You’re going to sit by yourself, trying to figure out what to say while people walk by all around you. You’ll then have to spend even more time trying to make up your mind to approach someone before you actually talk to someone. Then when you finally start talking, the conversation will mostly likely be about something completely unrelated to the Black Falcons. You may end up talking about the Black Falcons, you may not, but even if you do, the topic will just sound like another conversation topic, and the other person won’t give it too much attention.
So instead, this is what you should do:
- Go up to the person, and introduce yourself directly (i.e. Hi, my name is X.)
- Let them introduce themselves, and respond to them appropriately
- Start a conversation about the Black Falcons
- Get their contact information
As you can see, there are no tricks to the conversation itself. This is because what you say doesn’t matter. The only way to truly win someone over is by demonstrating that you are a true Black Falcon. You must move through the room without apology, and approach someone confidently. You must have a magnetic presence that will immediately draw the other person into your presence, and gain control of their fear to gain their respect.
And you must do all of this by simply walking over to the person, and say hi.
Only then can you truly call yourself a Black Falcon.

Niccolo Machiavelli once said, “It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot have both.”
At the core of every Black Falcon is a great hunter, waiting to unleash its claws and swiftly swoop away whatever it sets its eyes on. For that purpose, Black Falcons are always honing their hunting skills so that, when the time comes, they can easily hunt down their targets, and even defeat all their competitors in the process.
But it doesn’t matter how great your hunting skills are. In order to become a great hunter, you need to avoid conflicts as much as possible, and have you targets surrender themselves to you.
The reason is simple: because we Black Falcons are different from other hunters. In fact, the reason we keep training our skills is not just so that we can get what we want in life. We keep improving ourselves because we want to defeat the other hunters, who are constantly trying to compete with us in getting our targets. So the less we have to fight, the more advantages we have over our competitors. It is for this very reason that we, Black Falcons, must understand fear, and learn to use its power for ourselves.
To name a few reasons why you must master fear:
- The only way a prey would surrender itself to you is if you completely dominate it, and in order for you to dominate your prey, it must fear you to a certain degree.
- The power of fear will also help you defeat your competitors, who will not stand a chance in a competition since you have dominated them with fear.
- Your competitors will also try to knock you down with fear, and the only way to prevent that is by crippling them with fear.
Unfortunately, the power to create fear is not a skill you can learn. But you can hone it, and in fact, you have already learned a few ways of living your life that will help build your presence, which will then let you master the powers of fear.
Here’s a quick recap:
- Align yourself with other Black Falcons
- Carry yourself with standards and principals
- Build your personal magnetism

Finding references to a Black Falcon’s lifestyle is not easy, especially since pop culture, in general, promotes the mediocre lifestyle of most people. But once in a blue moon, something would come out of the left field, and impress even us Black Falcons.
In 1996, author Chuck Palahniu wrote a novel called “Fight Club.” The book is then adapted to movie, starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. The movie has since gained cult status, and has continued to impact movie lovers even to this day.
The main character of the movie, commonly referred to as the narrator, is a common office worker. The movie starts with him trying to find a cure to his insomnia. He later found the cure by attending various support groups as an imposter for various symptoms. Unfortunately, the cure didn’t last too long because there was another imposter, Marla Singer, attending the same groups as he. So finally in desperation, he negotiates a deal with Marla, so both of them can attend the support groups without running into each other.
After flying home from a business trip, the narrator finds his house destroyed by an explosion. With no one to turn to in the situation, he called a man named “Tyler Durden,” a soap salesman whom he met on the plane. From that point on, the two started living together. Together, they started the “Fight Club,” which is essentially a gathering of people who comes together, and fight with one another just for the fun of it.
Eventually, though, Tyler started distancing himself from the narrator, and started his own private armies all around the country. Then after a series of events, the narrator discovers something called “Project Mayhem.” After digging deeper, it is revealed that Tyler wants to blow up every major creditor in America. The narrator also discovers that his friend, Tyler Durden is , in fact, the narrator’s own alter ego. So in an effort to stop Tyler, the narrator shot himself, and is wounded, but alive. Nevertheless, the bombs still detonated in the buildings of all the major creditors, completing the goal of Project Mayhem.
So how is this movie important to us Black Falcons?
In a sense, we Black Falcons are also trying to accomplish what Tyler Durden wanted to achieve with Project Mayhem. We want the freedom to choose our own lives, and not be controlled by some system set up by society. We also want to strengthen ourselves, just like how the men in fight club strengthen themselves.
But most important thing about Fight Club is that it tells us Black Falcons what it is that makes us different. It is not our clothes, the cars we drive, or how much money we make. It is who we are as a person that makes us Black Flacons.
So if you haven’t watched the movie, make sure that you do. This movie will change the way you see the world, and help start your journey as a Black Falcon.

As we step into the world, the first thing we learn about building our personal endurance and power is be willing to handle rejections. In fact, you also need to be able to handle rejections to be a Black Falcon. If someone doesn’t like you for who you are, the best thing you can do is to just walk away. There is no point trying to change someone else’s mind when you can spend more time just being yourself.
But being unaffected by rejections alone does not make you a Black Falcon. You also have to be very vocal about your own opinions. A lot of the times, this means saying no to others, even if they try to persuade you to do otherwise.
Still, simply saying no is not enough. The important thing is that you must put your personality across, and set up your boundaries powerfully. Here are a few things to watch out for:
1. Be Direct
If you try to make excuses to wiggle yourself out of a situation, you’ve already lost. You may be able to get away with it most of the time, but eventually, someone forceful enough will see the excuses as a sign of weakness, and simply overturn your rejection. You’re much more likely going to get respected by simply being forthcoming with your opinions.
2. Be Firm
No one likes rejections. So a lot of times, you’ll run into situations when people, usually other predators, would be very persistent and would try to take power away from your rejection. Always remember to stand your ground. If they keep trying after that, simply walk away. Nothing good will come out of the interaction if you stay in there.
3. Be Courteous
You have to be firm with your rejections, but as Black Falcons, we also have to respect the social dynamics around us. Be honest with your opinions, and make yourself clear when you’re rejecting someone. But don’t insult anyone. If you don’t respect others, they’re not going to respect you either, and as Black Falcons, you should be able to hold your ground without resorting to petty insults.
Finally, as Black Falcons, we must always uphold our dignity. If someone tries to challenge our rejections, don’t even bother giving that person any acknowledgement. Just stay as you are, and they’ll have no choice but to walk away.

All hunters, no matter how good their hunting skills are, need their own safe haven to rest, and gather resources so that they will have the strength needed to hunt down those really valuable targets.
We Black Falcons are the same.
But unlike most other hunters, we are not totally dependent on our safe haven. We can nest anywhere, anytime, and gather all the resources we need to strengthen ourselves before leaving our nest. To us, our nests are not just a home. It is more of a symbol of our ability to adapt and strengthen ourselves, regardless of the situation we find ourselves in.
Nesting is an art for us Black Falcons. Unlike others, we don’t just look for somewhere that’s comfortable, and start building our lives around us. Rather, we decide what we want to do, and find a nest that will support it. Typically, a Black Falcon’s nest would exhibit the following traits:
This is the basic requirement for a nest. In order for us to keep performing as the best hunters we can be, we Black Falcons always want to make sure that our nests can nourish us. So the first things you need to do when nesting yourself is prepare your nest with:
- A generous supply of healthy foods
- Mediums that let you keep in touch with the world around you (such as TV, Telephone, Internet, and News and Magazine subscriptions.)
- Easily Accessible Cleaning Supplies and Storage Units to keep your nest clean and organized
- Good quality clothes for all social occasions
- Proper Furnishing to showcase your nest for social occasions
No matter what your goals are, if you can easily access the resources you need, you will have a much better chance of achieve them, particularly if there are other competitors in your way. We Black Falcons are always pursuing a goal. So naturally, you need to have a nest that can store all the resources you need.
Here are a few things your nest needs:
- Books and reference materials both rich in information and topic-specific for your goals
- Specific tools and gadgets that help you in your pursuits
- Money or mediums, such as keys to storage units, in case you need to quickly access money in emergency
- Secure storage options to let you safe keep the resources you gather
- Contact books, business card holders, and some type of organization system that let you quickly find and reach the contacts you need for different purposes.
Black Falcons are always on the go, pursuing their desires. So they need to have access to various resources outside of their nests. So we Black Falcons should do everything in our power to make sure that our nests have easy access to:
- Grocery and convenient stores
- Drug stores and health clinics
- Major roads and public transportation options
- Social gathering venues
A Black Falcon’s nest is extremely valuable. So we must safeguard it from other predators. When you build a nest for yourself, you must spend just as much effort into securing it as you are to building it. In fact, your goal should be to make your nest only assessable to you. If others want to access it, they must do it in your presence.
Here are a few ways to secure your nest:
- Use password, or secure access technology instead of locks, which can be picked
- Secure your nest with a reputable security company
- Install cameras, and monitoring devices to warn you if danger is approaching
- Find a nest that is not directly beside a lot of foot traffic
A Black Falcon’s nest has one purpose and one purpose only: to support a Black Falcon. A Black Falcon is always in pursuit of their goals, and sometimes, this pursuit will require the Falcon to relocate. In this case, the nest must be able to easily and swiftly move from it.
Here are a few ways to prepare your home for relocation
- Avoid tying yourself to the nest with debts and other commitments
- Prepare portable storage units that let you relocate whenever you want
- Have storage outside of your nest for resources you want in storage
- Have access to vehicles
