Take an Unplanned Road Trip

It doesn’t matter where you go, it’s the experience, not the destination that counts. Pick some place you’ve never been that you want to to go to and head that way.

Be sure and stop anywhere along the way that grabs your attention.

You could plan the trip but that would take all the energy and spontaneity out of the trip. Have only some brief guidelines to follow and you will have an adventure of a lifetime.

Several months ago while I was leaving the gym, I had that euphoric feeling I always have after a brutal workout.

I called up a buddy and said “Let’s take a road trip.” He said “When.” I said “Tomorrow early afternoon.” He said “Let’s do it.”

He invited his brother along and we all left Dallas around 2 the next afternoon.  We decided to go to Florida by way of Savannah, GA (to see the trees).

The first night we ended up at a motel outside of New Orleans, LA. The next day we spent a bit of time in N’awleans and headed for Georgia. We hit Savannah late that night and rented a room. We spent the next morning checking out Savannah.

You can sit at home wondering what’s out there…

or you can go pack some clothes, pack a cooler, get in your car and start driving.

Later that day we headed down the Atlantic coast of Florida and ended up on Miami Beach. After endlessly searching for a hotel room on the beach we finally got one (and the bathroom door had a giant, and I mean GIANT, peephole in it!).

We headed out to get some dinner and drinks (costing us around $250) and we went to some club right on the beach with a whole bunch of other travellers, many from abroad. After a couple drinks we went back to the hotel and jumped in the pool, realized the ocean was a mere few hundred feet away, and went in jumped in the ocean in the middle of the night.

We left the next day for Key West, our goal destination. We drove down through all the keys and I have to say it really is a breathtaking view. We get to Key West, the southernmost point of the continental US, found a nice place to rent, rented a golf cart for the rest of the stay and we had a fucking blast down there. We ended up doing all kinds of fun shit that never would have happened if we had stayed home.

We came home by way of the gulf coast of Florida, stopping to see some Alligators along the way. We spent a couple more nights on the Florida beach, spent a night in New Orleans, and finally hit home.

All in all it was a 9 day trip and it was a blast. It cost a bit of money but we all had a bit to spare. If money is an object I would suggest camping out. That sounds even better to me than staying in some posh resort.

For you, I have two questions…

1) Where have you always wanted to go?

2) When are you leaving?

When you make up your mind to do it, do it soon! You don’t want the excitement to die down. If it dies you may not go.

Decide to go and then go! Have an unplanned adventure of a lifetime!


  1. Hey Victor,

    I’m a 20 year old guy who’s coming home for the summer. I live in Miami and a couple of my good friends are flying up to Chicago to go to a huge music concert for the weekend. It’s kind of expensive but do you think it will be worth it going? I mean experience wise. I’ve never been to Chicago and I just want to have an amazing summer because I feel like time is running out for me.

    • “I’m a 20 year old guy……I feel like time is running out for me”

      Wait until you are 40 with a family………….travel now while you can. I got to see Europe and other parts of the US before I had a family and it was awesome.

      Don’t wait…………

  2. Did a few years back in between jobs. And as you described: threw the tent in the trunk, iced up the cooler, grabbed the dog eared atlas, and looped around Quebec, Labrador, Newfoundland, and the rest of the maritimes.

    No phone (since calling from Canada would be extra $$), just audiobooks and chit chat with the locals.

    If there is a place you want to see and no one will agree to go with you….then solo is the answer at that point. Get to it.

  3. Recently took a trip from Niagra all the way down to Key West. Drove down the skyline drive Blue Ridge Parkway. would have been better on a motorcycle. Maybe one day.

30 Days of Discipline - The Bootcamp for Winners

Are you lacking discipline in your life?
Take the bootcamp for winners and change your life

In this world there are two types of people…

Talkers and Walkers.

Talkers are the ones who talk, talk, talk all the time about what they are going to do in the future.
Walkers are the ones who walk the walk.


Hello, my name is Victor Pride.

I am the proprietor of Bold and Determined - the Website for Winners.

I have put together a checklist of what I believe are the 12 most important habits of a successful and proud man.

I live my life by these habits and I want to share them with you.

But I don’t just want to share them with you, I want you to follow the steps and feel the passion, energy and fire that I feel every day.

These habits are about developing and maintaining discipline.

Self Discipline is the defining trait of man.

With the 30 Days of Discipline mental and physical bootcamp you too can develop discipline and pride.

Remember, even the smallest habits make the biggest difference.

Take the steps to becoming a winner, an ass-kicker!

Come with me and take the leap!


30 Days of Discipline is an electronic book. But it's not just an e-book, it is a way of life.

It is a challenge. It is a bootcamp that you put yourself through. A way to discipline yourself, a way to tame those bad habits and institute new, Ass-kicking habits.

To get the full benefit of the program requires work on your part.

The only way you will succeed is to follow the instructions and MAKE THE DECISION to go through with it. Decide to never quit.

It won’t be easy, but when you emerge 30 days later you will be amazed at the energy, creativity and vitality you will feel.

You can become as you wish to be, it requires only a change of mindset, a smidgen of self-discipline and some will-power.
30 Days of Discipline
30 Days of Discipline is designed to help increase feelings of...
Here is what some of the guys who went through the 30 Days of Disciplineprogram are saying…
"To put it bluntly, Victor’s 30 Days of Discipline will turn you into a fucking winner. It’s designed to take weak, insecure, lazy men and whip them into shape. If you do decide to purchase his eBook, I recommend going in 100% from the get-go. Don’t slowly 'work your way into it.' That’s too easy. It’s only through struggle and hardship that we mould our character—Victor’s program won’t be easy, and you’ll want to give up SO BADLY for the first week or two, but don’t. If you manage to make it through all 30 days, I’m literally 100% convinced that you will be a different man than you were before. It’s that simple. So what are you waiting for? Go download his program and start right now."

-Jon Anthony, Founder of Masculine Development
"30 Days of Discipline changed my life forever. I used to look forward to the weekend so I could binge on movies and bad food. Now I actually have to force myself to “relax”. Work is always on my mind. It’s become an addiction."

"30 DoD changed my life so much during the past 2 years that everything- starting from my friends(very few now), to my bank account – is fundamentally different.

Again thank you so much for the information you provided. You can’t even imagine how much you helped out a young man with no parents around. I’d be on the street without B&D."

"It may just be that the purpose of your life is to become a Man. When you meet death or God and you are asked what you did with your short time on Earth, you can say “I became a Man”. When all other males around you gave up their manhood, when your whole society conspired to ruin you, when circumstances worked against you, at least you can stand firm and say “I became a Man despite it all”. You’re not a Man because you do what a Man does, but you can’t be a Man without doing what a Man does. The place to start, is 30 days of discipline. I started it over 4 months ago and it has helped me immensely in my entrepreneurial activities, to become more decisive and of course, the foundation of all achievement, it has helped me with my discipline."

"Thanks for the kick in the ass Victor. 30 days is already changing my life."


"Cheers for the checklist Victor, working well so far here in the UK."


These people are taking action and seeing a difference in their lives.
"I bought both your eBooks – BOAS and 30DoD. They helped me stay busy at the time – I picked what I needed from both and used them to gain discipline and a bigger, better body. After a while I decided to stop following both eBooks and instead do things my own way.

In the past three years, after “just enduring” like you told me to do, I hardly recognize myself:

I went from 130 skinny pounds to 160lbs of solid muscle. I’ve increased my lifts in the gym enormously. I stopped using all drugs and only drink occasionally – I don’t get drunk, I don’t party. I stopped spending money and started producing. My girls are my chefs, my maids and my whores – they all call me “Daddy”. I’ve cut off losers, complainers and low-energy friends. I get called ‘douchebag’, ‘asshole’ and ‘dick’ more than I get called by my name. I don’t sacrifice anything in life – I do what I want when I want. I don’t use any supplements and I don’t drink caffeine – I eat meat and always have energy. I walk tall, proud and confident. I always look good. I prioritize money, gym and food before anything else. I started and failed over 20+ blogs – I finally created one that stuck – I am now my own product. Men look up to me. Women want m​e. I command power and respect without talking."

-Mike C.
"I already achieved my life dreams and semi retired at age 37. After that things went a bit downhill watching porn and wasting my life dreaming of a beautiful woman that never came – as if she was going to come to a porn tosser. Compounding the issue I had a buldge in my disc and couldn’t exercise and gained weight. Then I purchased 30 days of discipline and broke my old time record of 86 consecutive pushups and did 87 after two weeks into the program . I’ve stopped jerking off and watching porn. I wake up 5am – mediate one hour, do yoga and then your program and I feel like a fucking champion again its changed my life."


"I’m a college student and hit a rough patch in my life this semester. I was smoking too much weed, lazy, Willy Wanker, had little social life, no sex life, I was approaching skinny-fat, and was just generally a depressed little estrogen filled bitch. The depression actually got to the point where I was questioning whether it was a good idea for me to study abroad next semester. I found your website and after a few nights of reading your material I felt a passion for life I hadn’t felt in years. 30 days of Discipline looked like the kick in the ass I needed.

I can’t recommend combing 30DOD highly enough. VP’s program will turn you into a disciplined, proud man. Victor you’ve helped me take pride in myself and walk with a purpose, I guess girls have a sixth sense for that cause I’m getting eye fucks from 50% of the girls I’m interested in. This is coming from a guy who used to be scared to make eye contact with hot girls."


"Am one week into the 30 days of discipline and feeling marvelous. Late middle-aged, successful career, good marriage; children out and successful, starting to gain some weight and boredom approaches. Needed and found the challenge with excellent results. No more 4-Hour Body b.s. with “slow carbs”. Should have found and started 30 Days of Discipline long ago. Almost forgot what it was like to feel like an 18 year old paratrooper again. Oh, and others have noticed too. No prisoners today!"


"I just completed 30 days of discipline and let me tell you this program is pure gold. These 30 days has taught me one of the most important lessons in my life, HAVE A PURPOSE AND QUIT MAKING EXCUSES. Have a goal each and every day and do what it takes to achieve that goal. That's why I'll continue to use each habit inside 30 days of discipline. These habits have taught me how to apply the lesson I mentioned above, stop making excuses and start achieving... Guess what, my numbers went up in the gym as well. I hit PR's...Bottom line is stop making excuses and keep moving forward. Thank you for this invaluable lesson and advice with 30 days of discipline."


"...Not even 24 hours later I feel like I'm kicking ass. This is a pivotal moment in my life. I can FEEL it. Finding this program, which really feels more like a lifestyle, and INSTANTLY implementing the principles - has already begun the re-wiring process..."


“30 Days of Discipline is brilliant! Simple and Effective. I”m starting January 1st! I’m real excited for this progress in my life. Thanks Victor Pride.”


“Simple to follow and entertaining. Great read I enjoyed it and even though I’m already doing most of the steps, it’s made me do my own and the other steps outlined to be more ferocious every 30 days!”


“I have downloaded 30 days today, read it and am going to start tomorrow. I ‘ve been in to town and bought some notepads. I have wrote the rules in the front and am excited about starting. Can’t wait for 5am tomorrow morning.”

-Keith C.

“I’m more energized, and I have a better sense of clarity/focus/sharper thinking. So far this routine is working very well. I like the fact that its more of a guide to living your life than just working out. Because I’m one of those guys who is probably in better shape than 99% of the other people in the gym at any given time, yet feel lost on my purpose in life or what I need to accomplish outside of the gym to achieve fulfillment in my life. 3 days down, 27 to go!! Let’s do this. And I said fuck waiting for New Years, let’s do it now baby”

-Robert H.

“Amazing work...simple, direct, and actionable...Thank You”


“So far I’ve had the best week in the gym in ages, I’m able to think through my Organic Chemistry workload easier than in undergrad… my already deep voice has gotten deeper(i’m getting comments about my voice deepness) as well as I smell more manly… I’m convinced that this is what I need to bring myself down to 250-270(I’m 6’4″) as well as become the fucking bad ass scientist I’m meant to be, to step it up to the maximum level.

Always Do What You Are Afraid To Do

Fear is an excellent motivator, if you let it motivate you.

Fear is also an excellent tool to keep you from succeeding, if you let it.

Those that have achieved their dreams have faced their fears and conquered them.

Those that are not living their dreams have let fear control them.

When you're contemplating doing something but you're scared, always ask yourself what's the worst that could happen?

It's likely that nothing bad will happen. If something bad could happen what are the chances? Usually a tiny chance.

If you’re scared to do something, that’s a good sign that you should do it.

Seen Jaws too many times and now you’re scared of Sharks? You need to jump in the ocean.

What’s the worst that could happen?

You encounter a shark. So what. Maybe it bites you and maybe it doesn’t. And if it kills you then it kills you. We all die and you did it facing your fears.

Want to go into business for yourself but you’re afraid of failure? You should bite the bullet and do it.

What’s the worst that could happen?

You go broke. So what. Every self-made millionaire was broke before they were rich.

Want to get into shape but you’re scared of looking like a fool in the gym? Go into the gym anyway.

What’s the worst that could happen?

People snigger behind your back. So what. See the look on their faces in 6 months when you’ve completely changed your body.

Want to ask out the pretty girl at the mall but scared she'll say no? Ask her anyway.

What's the worst that could happen?

She could say no. So what. At least you tried while all the other cowards wonder what could have been.

If you’re too scared to ever take a chance…

Then you don’t deserve any rewards.


  1. I encounter a shark! What’s the worse that can happen? It may bite me or it may choose not to bite me. And if it kills me, it kills me. Gotta love this fearless shit! Vic, you’re the best!

  2. You’re scared of quitting college and start working for youreself?

    Whats the worst that could happen?

    You lose a year and 2000 dollars,

    Whats the best that could happen,

    You become your own boss and you can make as much money as you want.

  3. I can relate in a way to this post:

    a younger me (16 yrs old) always wondered about drug use, then I went ahead and tried them, went through addiction then almost died 6.2.11, after having almost died I slept on my arm while under the influence and the day after my left arm seized to function.

    I spent 2 whole months (summer) learning how to re-use my arm, i went from being able to lift 40lbs dumbells to barely being able to move my fingers a few inches but I had faith and I started with gripping utensils then 1lbs dumbells than 2 up to 30lbs, thats a learning experience I do not regret one bit.

    When I see people with prosthetic arms/feet
    I share something truly amazing a connection only some can understand.

    It’s better that it happened than if it never had.

    My whole family thinks I’m STUPID for saying that.

    Good to see that real men are still alive in our fruity liberal society. God bless.

How to be Hyper-Productive in 4 Easy Steps

1) Do one task at a time.
Multi-tasking is great if you like doing things half-assed but if you want something done right you have to put all your effort into it. Only when one item is done do you move on to the next item.
Back in the days when I used to have a job I remember interviewers asking me about multi-tasking and I would lie and say “yeah, I love to do a million things at once!”
When I had a job I would always get my work done in about a half hour and then I had 7 and a half free hours to plot and scheme.
2) Make a to-do list every single night before bed.
This is critical! If you don’t know what you need to do how will you ever get it done? Write your to-do down on a notepad or word processor and cross every item off as soon as it is accomplished.
Make your to-do list manageable but not laughably easy. 5-10 quality items that need to get done is a good start.
3) When you wake up in the morning start crossing off items on your to-do list first thing.
All the mountains of work that we think are impossible only take a little time and effort to accomplish. When you have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish for the day it’s almost too easy to get everything done before most people even have breakfast.
Don't erase your to-do list items, put an X beside them or cross a line through them. It's an amazing feeling to see the big to-do list items being crossed off seemingly by the minute. A
t the very end you will see the fruit of your labors with your entire list done.
This is what your to-do list should look like after an hour or two…
-File TPS reportsXXXXXX
-Put payments in the mailXXXXX
-Review site traffic from the month beforeXXXXXX
-Kick ass and take namesXXXXXX
-Post article on Hyper-productivity
-Hit the gym with a vengeanceXXXXXX
-Respond to all e-mailsXXXXXXX
Easy as can be!
4) Give yourself a short time frame to complete your tasks.
When you're looking at a time limit you have no choice but to get things done faster. If you've got a week to finish everything there is no rush, but if you only have 2 hours to finish your tasks you're going to be working like a frantic maniac.
The goal isn't just to get stuff done, it's to get stuff done ASAP!



Learn To Love Mondays

Monday’s are the best day of the week!
Mondays are the start of something new and possibly great.
Monday’s give you a chance at something new every single week.
Monday will determine the rest of your week.
If you start Monday with a kick-ass take no prisoners attitude and you bust your ass to get shit done you can bet your week will start on a good note.
If you dread your Monday and don’t get anything productive done then you can bet your week is going to be just as sour.
If you dread Mondays because that means you have to go back to work I’d say that’s a clear sign you need to change your profession.
I love Mondays and I get somewhat annoyed at the weekends because I know there will be a dip in productivity.
Tips to make your Mondays more productive:
Rise early on Monday. Be up before everyone to get a head start.
Benjamin Franklin said Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise and nowhere is that truer than on Monday morning.
Start your day with a nice walk, jog, or lifting session to clear your head a little.
Make a to-do list over the weekend and get everything done early in the morning.
There is no better feeling in the world knowing you have been hyper-productive and have everything done before most people even have a cup of coffee.
Love Mondays and Mondays will love you back.
Dread Mondays and that will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
If you think your day is going to suck, guess what, it probably will.
Don't have a case of the Mondays…
Have a case of the “Let's get shit done todays”.



  1. I am just looking at all your older posts and they arre surely great as well. I hope you will keep up this blog for a lot of time…
