Why You Will Probably Fail at Penis Enlargement

Written by Jeff on March 19, 2016

We hate to say it, but a lot of you will probably not succeed at penis enlargement.

No, this has nothing to do with the scientific aspects of it - remember, every man is capable of at least 1 inch in growth (at minimum, at least 2 inches over the course of their life).

The reason for failure is mostly due to factors that are under your complete control.

Here, we discuss the common reasons why guys will fail at reaching their penis size goals and see what you can do to prevent your chances of failure - which are all within your control.

You don't care enough, you're just lightly curious about the topic of penis size

The Internet is a fantastic place.

We can just Google any question that we have on our mind.

So it's not surprising that practically every guy on Earth will Google search terms like:

  1. "average penis size"
  2. "how to increase penis size"
  3. "is my penis small?"

So I'm sure you have google'd some of these terms to get some quick answers.

But just because you had a spur of the moment curiosity on penis size, it doesn't mean that you're serious about penis enlargement.

After all, you're just testing the waters, trying to understand if it's even possible to increase your size, and even if it was, you're not completely sure if you want to do it because you're not sure if it works, and you're also wondering if you even have to because you want to know if you're already large enough.

While there's nothing inherently wrong with getting a feel for understanding how penis enlargement works, just reading about it to satisfy your curiosity is not going to make you reach the end goal.

It takes dedicated action on your part after gathering all the necessary information to get real results.

See, most of us, when we first learn about penis enlargement are very passive about the whole process and some never find the motivation to make the commitment and start.

The difference between a master and a apprentice is that the master has failed more times than the student has even tried.

This quote means that the man who takes the initiative to try but fails will be way farther ahead than the man who simply reads on a subject for hours.

While this is definitely true for penis enlargement - you need to take action with your exercises to get more familiar with your body and understand your limits - this is also true with all aspects of life, like dealing with people, and even earning money.

By doing something wrong, you already know what will not work and you'll know first hand not to make such a mistake a gain.

If you just read about something and don't try it out, you will always have that doubt in your mind if that technique works or doesn't work and this doubt is what will hinder progress.

So remember, it's not enough to just Google solutions and see what others are doing - you have to take action, even if it means stepping out of your comfort zone.

But how much time reading is enough and when should you start taking action?

That's a very good question.

We found as a general rule (for everything, including penis enlargement): After 10 hours of reading up on and learning how to do something, you need to take action (and risk making mistakes) to take yourself to the next level.

After all, there's only so much practical utility that you can gain from just reading up on a subject.

This principle can also be seen in the real world as well.

A perfect example is academia vs. industry. Some Ph.D students spend so much time in academia (some we know have been there for 10 years and are still working on their degree), while others have graduated and are making important advances and changes in their industry by taking action and actively working in the industry.

See the problem is that some of the Ph.D students are too theoretical (not taking action), while those that go out and start working in industry are able to make their work materialize and creates a real-world effect. The idea is not stuck in their mind, it becomes a reality.

Another reason for taking action after 10 hours of learning is because you cannot retain the written information for too long, so it is much more efficient to read, take an action, and the act of taking physical action will engrain what you learned in your mind.

You have other priorities in your mind

"Penis size is not that important." If you agree with this statement then you will not succeed.

Not that this is a problem, you're simply accepting that it's something you're not willing to work on for your future.

This statement and it's consequences are pretty black and white.

But let's assume that you care about your penis size to some degree.

Perhaps you were born with a small one, or perhaps, you simply do not feel adequate in the bed. Perhaps you've haven't been getting lays recently or getting laid at all, so size is creating some sort of anxiety for you.

So let's assume you fit into one of these categories above - don't worry, practically every guy on earth will fall into one of these categories at some point in their life.

So this means you can assign some degree of importance and urgency to penis size.

Depending on what group you fall into, you may classify penis size as super important right now or that it could take a backseat for your current priorities.

You may be focused on your career at the moment. You may have family issues that you're trying to resolve. You may be pressed for money right now. You may be focusing on your friends and social life.

By putting penis enlargement as a backseat to these other priorities, your chances of succeeding decrease substantially.

We're not trying to discourage you - after all, there are things in life that are more important than penis size, like your overall health.

It's just that you have to face the reality: you either fail or succeed, and prioritizing your enlargement is a big factor in that result.

Here's what we suggest:

Ask yourself if you can contribute 20 minutes a day to penis enlargement. Now, you have to be 100% honest with yourself.

Also consider what your current status is in the life. Where do you see yourself in a year or two? Are you focused on your career? money? family?

Now, with all these things in your life, can you fit in the 20 minutes a day to do penis enlargement exercises? Do you have the logistics? Can you see yourself spending the energy doing the exercises (this is important because some are too tired after work to commit to their exercises).

We know that penis enlargement takes a little bit of time each day, so you have to understand that in order to see results, you have to start early.

Now after understanding these truths, you must understand that if you put off working on your penis enlargement, then you're only delaying the time to reach your results.

Penis enlargement is one of those things to just get started immediately, even if you're not consistent, even if you're not sure that you're fully committed, even if you only do it on and off, because all that work will add up for the final, desired result.

After all, there's one thing that we can guarantee:

If you don't take any action and get started on your jelqing and stretching exercises, you will not increase in size - that's we can guarantee.

You'll give up after a few weeks

Giving up in a few weeks can either be a minor setback or lead to complete failure.

For me personally, I tried out the penis enlargement routines (jelqing and manual stretching) for about a couple months, but then I sort of fell off.

It's not that I gave up, but rather, I was busy with other things - the workload at my job increased because we were trying to hit a deadline (so I was too tired to do any exercises after work).

After a couple of weeks of not doing any exercises, I suddenly remembered that I was trying to increase my penis size.

It felt as if I never did exercises before.

a beginner at doing exercises

It was sort of like never going to the gym in a long time. When you do go back to the gym after a long period of not exercising, it feels as if you're starting off from square one again.

It's not the best feeling because it feels that you were wasting your time back then.

So, after not doing penis exercises for a couple of weeks, I made a conscious decision to stick with it for 3 months.

And that has made all the difference.

See, within that 3 month time period, I started to notice my penis becoming fuller and longer.

This was the momentum that I desperately needed to see because once I saw these gains, it gave me powerful motivation to keep at it.

Now, while I can't say for sure whether you will give up on penis enlargement, but we have seen many people start and go strong for a few weeks to a month, but then fall off, but eventually get back on track.

However, that's the hard truth.

People give up or hold off on doing penis enlargement because they will focus on other things or they don't get into the habit of a routine.

Not doing your penis exercises = not getting results. It's that simple.

Again, because it takes a while to see results, this also contributes to why guys will give up.

Don't fall into this trap. Stick with it for at least 3 months like I did before calling it quits forever.

Remember, you're not special - by that I mean, you're a human male, and biology says that all us human males function the same and are surprisingly similar.

This means that you're not an exception; you're not some special super mutant human male where you're the only one who can't benefit from penis enlargement.

You don't have sex enough to care (you probably only get laid once in a blue moon)

If you don't have sex often, or sex at all, then why should you even care about your penis size?

a woman rejecting a man's advances

This is a common thought that subliminally goes through a lot of guys' minds.

However, it is very negative thinking. It's also very lazy and sloth-like.

Sure, if you have good, consistent game, of course you're going to want to increase your size - anything that can improve your many bedroom experiences.

However, the guys that don't get laid a lot may have a hard time finding motivation to get penis size.

Now combine that lack of motivation with the fact that they may experience sexual anxiety due to their size, this leads to them not even trying to get laid.

And that's what happens: they don't have sex.

This is a completely vicious cycle. How can you get laid if you don't even try to have sex? How can you get the motivation to get laid, when you're worrying about penis size?

There's only one way to break free from this vicious cycle: You have to find a different motivator to increase your penis size other than just for sex.

This different motivator has been all around you your whole life: everyday, everywhere confidence.

If you're a semi-typical person, then I'm sure you've been in a decent amount of social situations, whether it be with friends, at work, or with family.

We as humans always like to compare ourselves to others, especially with those that are similar to us. We're naturally competitive.

This is especially true with men because we like to maintain our "pride as a man".

So, if you felt that you had a bigger penis size than your peers and co-workers, you will develop a raw, sense of pure confidence that will boost your self-esteem.

This boost in self-esteem will work for you every second of your waking life.

Now that is a serious benefit and a perfect motivator other than sex.

If people find out that you care about your penis size, they may think that you are insecure.

Do not listen to them or fall for this trap. It is completely backwards thinking.

You're not insecure. You're honest with yourself, and that is 10 times more honorable than those that lie to themselves.

And then they wonder why they don't feel good after so many years. They lie to themselves, and never take any action to solve their problem.

You're different. You care, and will address your inner demons and reap the benefits: confidence, self-esteem and eliminated anxiety.

So yes, sex can be a great motivator to enlarging your penis. But it can't be the only one.

The motivation has to be something stronger, something permanent, something that convince you that it will last the rest of your life.

See, sex is a temporary feeling, but confidence can stick with you until the day you die.

Using confidence and self-esteem as motivators will take you the distance.

In Conclusion

In conclusion, we went over a few of the common reasons on what will setback your penis enlargement journey and for some, completely kill it.

While these barriers can derail your efforts, the good thing is you're now well aware of these pitfalls to avoid.

When you feel the going is getting rough, you can easily analyze and identify if any of the following reasons above are the reasons for your setback.

After properly identifying the reason for the setback, you can apply some of the strategies and solutions that we mentioned to help you stay course.

Remember, it's a marathon, not a sprint.

Slow and steady, a little bit every day, all of it will add up and you will win.
