“Hey, are you Lucio? Man, you changed my life with your work!”
That wasn’t the best moment to chat.
I would have liked to give him some more time, but I was leaving the place with a girl I had just met.
So I flashed a smile, raised my eyebrows, and said with a neutral tonality “oh, thanks man”.
The day after, I had to think again about that quick interaction.
I never set out to be anybody’s teacher.
But it made me reflect on how far I had come in life.
Today, I am living life my way.
Exactly how I dreamed it.
But you would have never guessed it.
I started life as the biggest underdog ever.
Socially unaware, romantically mediocre, emotionally illiterate, psychology-blind, and gullible AF (see story below).
My ex texted me…
I immediately dropped everything I was doing.
It was like a heavenly embrace lifting me out of darkness.
You should know: those days I was scraping the bottom of the barrel.
I was sleeping little and dreaming mostly of my ex.
All I could think of was how to get her back.
For a while she chased me hard to get back together.
But everything changed when she shared on Facebook a picture of her… Lying in bed with the new guy.
She was pointing at him with the caption saying “I like”.
I later found out she orchestrated it all, but I was the easiest target.
In the following days her mental torture intensified.
“you and I, we were more just like friends after all”, she told me.
Retroactively friend-zoning me, and implying that the new guy was a “real” boyfriend / man.
Something like that were to happen to me today, I’d shake my head in mild disgust and smile while muttering “how low”.
But back then me wasn’t today’s me.
Back then, her words were a dagger through my heart.
And my crotch.
And everything in between.
Not that much time has passed, after all. Ten years.
But it feels like a lifetime ago.
A distant, greyed out memory of a me that doesn’t exist anymore.
Monstruous learning, countless adventures, more than a hundred notches and a personal growth that transcended those notches as a measure of my worth, I am SO grateful for that heartbreak.
As a matter of fact, I am most grateful for my searing losses, the most bitter rejections, and the hardest times of my life.
They have been the best teachers.
Since then, my life has been a continuous upward climb.
Fueled by hard work and copious amounts of the best information I could find, it’s been an effective upward climb.
And I have been fortunate enough to have had many bright moments.
Like going from jobless to turning an entry trainee position in sales to senior in just one year.
Then negotiating a break, traveling the world for six months, coming back to Europe and negotiate yet another promotion, including equity shares.
Or from that heartbreak meeting and sleeping with more women I could have imagined, including those who were exactly the type I like.
But most of all, I enjoy the freedom that learning power dynamics has provided me with.
Like walking in any place in the world as a stranger and quickly build social networks as I please. Which allows me pure total freedom, unglued from any desk, unmoored by any constraints.
But this is not about me.
This is about YOU.
If you reading here, you also don’t want to settle.
You are also driven to live life on your terms.
To do it, you only need to reach the top ten percentile in a few key areas of life.
It’s not that difficult.
Your parents probably never told you.
Chances are they didn’t know any better.
Your teachers never told you, either.
And the self-development gurus often know it, but they never share it.
As a matter of fact, most of them tell you the opposite of what really makes them successful.
Western governments are built on that lie as well.
But if you are reading here, you probably know it’s not really how it goes.
Not only the standard path to success is untrue, it’s often counterproductive.
Socialization is, in large part, the subordination of the individual’s interest to everyone else.
The rich and powerful pay lip service to the pro-social constraints and pretend to obey them.
The official pitch is that the rules are good for everyone.
But they are not good for everyone.
The most successful people acquire power playing around those rules.
That’s why you see people who aren’t any better -and are indeed often worse than you- do better than you are.
They are getting the job you want, the partner you dream about, the cars you love and the holidays you deserve.
And that’s why despite doing all the things you’ve been told you should do, you haven’t been able to get the life you want (yet).
If you don’t understand the dynamics of power and how it affects everything in life, you are going to lose out.
The people around you will get what should be yours and they will beat you.
Again and again.
That’s why a low quality, unprincipled woman, could get to me years ago.
And that’s why for a long time I struggled to find a job while some smarter players no better than I was received great intros and offers.
Because, like most others, I didn’t understand the power dynamics that govern the world.
And those who don’t understand the dynamics of power are doomed to a sub-par existence far below their potential.
And that, to me, is the ultimate waste of life.
Because power isn’t just about power.
It’s about everything.
I got to work on Social Power once it became clear to me that:
✔ I wasn’t the only one being held back in life
✔ Most people, just like I was, are committing the ultimate sin: living far below their actual potential (and wasting their life)
✔ Once you show driven men and women how success really works, they 10x their lives
That’s what Social Power does for you.
Social Power awakens you to the matrix. It shows how people and life really work, and how you can leverage that knowledge to get what you want.
I decided to create ThePowerMoves.com on what I refer to as “Robin Hood spirit”.
Because the more I started learning and developing, the more it became apparent to me that the world was skewed.
And I could see 2 groups of people:
- Those who wield power and live like kings
- The masses of average people, who follow and listen to power for the scraps
There is a third wary though.
The third way is to understand power dynamics and leverage them.
Not to fight it, not to follow it, and not to use it to screw other people over, either. But to gain freedom.
Once you understand the rules of the game, you can play as you please. You can climb the corporate ladder, get the big house and all of that.
Or you can do your own thing.
And that power of choice is life-transforming.
When you learn to see how power works and to leverage it instead of submitting or fighting it, a world of opportunity opens up.
Are you ready to be that person?
Do you think this sounds too good to be true?
Just read on.
Because as you will see at the end, I am guaranteeing you that you are going to change your life.
I have seen my life go from something I was deeply dissatisfied with to a living dream. Along the way, I have noticed this simple universal truth over and over again:
Life is a competition, and everyone is a selfish player who wants to win.
Or at least, that’s how it goes if you want to be successful and go places.
Learning to be successful means learning the rules of this big competition that is life.
And in a world of self-interested competitors who want to beat you, power dynamics are the rule of the game.
Are you ready to play?
If you are tired of being dissatisfied with life, if you want more and if you are ready to start getting more, this might be the most important page you will ever read in your life.
Because inside Social Power, there is all you need to start getting what you always wanted.
Social Power is a 6 week, step-by-step program designed to give you all the tools to maximize your power and results (ie.: to get what you want).
There is enough theory for you to understand how things really work, but it’s laid out for practical applications (ie.: to get what you want).
You will learn power dynamics, and how to leverage them, across all the most important domains in life: socialization, dating & seduction, relationships, and work.
Plus, with the included free ebook “Ultimate Power”, you’ll also tackle the mental side of power to gain full control over yourself.

What Students Say
Social Power is like learning to read: a mumble-jumbo of seemingly incoherent social signals suddenly makes sense.
It’s tremendously empowering.
I realized how I sometimes act “too nice” and lose status. And how I unconsciously engage in status climbing, including in my own relationship.
And I am already fixing my behavior to make my life better.
The only tiny regret is timing: I wish younger me had this resource. It would have boosted my career in the forces.
–Frank S., UK
I am a low-rank Technician in Military and was appearing in front of some top military officers for an inquiry.
I used your techniques and successfuly remained dominant over them. I kept the frame and that allowed me to win the case. They all were harassing me but they failed in front of my attitude.
–Muh A., Uknown location feedback
I always knew the general idea of frames and how they worked on an intellectual level, but not an instinctual one.
Thinking of it from the idea of a judge/parent and judged/child role has done something in my head to make it all click.
(…) reading it and having it explained so simply has helped me immensely inside the actual interactions in real-time. Approaching them like this has helped me be quicker and retain my own dominance and power and I’ve already noticed differences in how people treat me.
It’s nice 🙂
Also, it put into perspective why some things have always bothered me even though I didn’t quite understand why.
I get it now, (..) they would say so in pretty words like “I’m looking out for you” and crap like that (…) but now I see it was the ‘being judged’ or like they were above me. That was the part that irked me and now I can [appropriately] fight back and it’s immensely rewarding!
Happy customer here,

Why Social Power
Why should you take Social Power?
Well, to begin with, you don’t have to (<— this is a power move BTW, so that I remove myself from the sales role of having to convince anyone, which is the power down position).
And the fewer people take it, the better it will be for those very few who take care to learn real social dynamics.
Rule of Power #1: to win big, play the game at the easy level. And the best way to play the game at the easiest level, is to have weak opponents. The good news for you is that you do have weak opponents!
You only need to get moderately good and you will be already enjoying an unfair advantage.
And if you want to smash it? Well, then Social Power is all about getting really good.
#1: Social Power is based on science
Have you already taken a look around this website?
There are hundreds of books, and courses reviewed, plus hundreds of citations in the articles.
All the best ones went inside this course.
If you were to add up the value of each one of them, you’d end up with thousands of dollars (and thousands of days to go through them).
At more than 300 scientific researches, Social Power might be the most well-researched self-development program in the market.
You can check the full list of resources here:
#2: Social Power is based on real-life scenarios
Are you tired of advice such as “be more confident”, “don’t chase her” or “be a mystery“?
What do they even mean?
How to be more confident, how to get girls without chasing and how can women be more of a mystery?
I know I was tired of this generic, catch-all advice from pundits whom I felt knew no better than I knew even when I was starting out.
That’s why I started this website in the first place!
Social Power is the only course with hundreds of videos, text examples and pictures to show you exactly how effective and ineffective behavior looks like.
If you enjoy practical learning, this course is a no-brainer because it is all about practical learning.
Social Power is based on real-life scenarios because I have lived, observed and analyzed many of the scenarios I describe. And I show them to you as realistically as possible.
#3: Social Power is the best source on power moves & manipulation
Most social skills courses are based on best-case scenarios.
The best-case scenarios of meeting good-hearted people, having nice and good conversation and entering into collaborative and friendly relationships.
When that’s the case, great!
But unluckily, that is not the full picture of the reality we live in.
We live in a world were manipulation, dominance, aggression, and coercion often pay.
And we live in a world where you can expect -and should expect- people to use you in one way or another.
That is why one of the tenets of this website is that to be good, you need first to learn to be bad.
There can be no good without the ability to stand up to evil.
Social Power shows you how to become the kind of person who can be truly good, you know, like out of choice, not because he has no other options.
To be good, you first need to learn how to be bad
Most courses out there are either people talking in front of a camera or walls of texts.
I never believed in either of them.
Social Power mixes all learning.
This course shows you real-life texts I get from women and explains what are the dynamics at play and how you should answer. It takes the best assessment quizzes from the best books and transforms them into actual quizzes.
And to help you grow your emotional intelligence it shows you video and then forces you to think what are the power dynamics at play. Which you can then double-check with the correct answers.
This is deep learning.
Social Power FAQ
Here are some common questions I get on Social Power:
1. What exactly is Social Power
Social Power is a course that helps students be more successful in life by teaching people skills and life strategies.
It has a special focus on the dynamics of power, hence the name "social power", including games people play and the darker, manipulative side of human nature.
People going through Social Power come out of it with a better understanding of human nature and how to leverage that nature for life success.
Social power alumni tend to be more confident and more effective human beings.
There are 7 modules, each releasing automatically after 5 days from the day you join.
The slow release helps you stay on track at a healthy pace.
Check the tab “curriculum” at the top of this page to read the names of each lesson.
2. I’m not looking for power, can this course be helpful for me?
People who ask this question sometimes misunderstand this course and they think this is some sort of “how to become an asshole”.
But the opposite is true.
This is a course to help you become a high-value man (or woman).
While there can be powerful assholes, you can hardly reach the true top while being an asshole.
So, if anything, this is more about "dealing with assholes" rather than becoming one.
Also, frankly, it doesn’t matter whether you are interested in “power” or not.
Power is still all around you, and some of those who are interested in power will still try to trample your rights. And I would recommend you be ready for that.
You gain, of course, but the world gains, too.
A someone said:
“Let him who wants peace, prepare for war”
3. How is Social Power different from your other content?
Social Power lays the groundwork.
In Pareto's parlance, this is your 80%.
The articles deal with a lot of details, while Social Power is designed to provide you with the basic infrastructure.
Furthermore, when there is overlap between an article and a lesson, the lesson provides more examples and more practical tips.
That way, as a Social Power alumni, you get an edge even on those who read every single article.
4. What’s different than the competitors?
Let me ask you a question:
Do you see this type of content anywhere else?
People routinely ask me where they can find more information like in this website.
And when I tell them "Robert Greene", "Machiavelli", this or that website, they all come back saying "but it's not nearly as actionable".
Indeed, the reason why I started the website and the reason why I spent months on this course is because there is nothing similar.
There is very little on the power dynamics socialization.
I don’t know if you feel the same, but for me, the typical social skills advice wasn’t cutting it.
The typical social skills advice is either about "bringing the energy" and "commanding attention" or about "listening well" and "being interested". And both of those have their place and time. I also teach that.
But it’s not enough.
There is little on the power dynamics of relationships, too.
The advice on relationships is often either coming from bitter men and women who advice a win-lose strategy, or from "feel good" writers who miss out on the reality of life.
Social Power bridges the gap between science and real-world.
If you are looking for that type of real-world knowledge, then this is your course.
Social Power is based on seeking win-win, but also to defend you from win-lose players.
Because that's what works in real life: cooperation usually trumps aggression. But you must also be ready to face aggression when it's used against you.
Be nice and courteous, but always have a plan B to kill every last motherfucker in the room.
5. What if it’s not for me?
If you worry about buying something that's not good for you, then you don't have to worry at all.
