    The Lazy Brain Disease

    There are a lot of troubling statistics about modern society. One is that the average attention span of people is getting shorter and shorter. It's kind of a paradox of technological success. All humans are driven to want to get more with less effort. Ever since the dawn of time, the most common human thought has been, "There's got to be an easier way to do this!" Even Bill Gates once said the ideal employee is both intelligent and lazy. Lazy because he's driven to do less work. Intelligent because he figures out way to get more outcome with less effort. If you're ultimate goal is to be as lazy as possible, it will drive you to come up with some pretty cool inventions. Essentially all human inventions have been created to get more outcome with less work. But therein lies the paradox. A world filled with people who get things easily, without a lot of strenuous effort might start to feel entitled. The WORST thing that can happen to you as a human is to be a combination of lazy acting and lazy thinking. If you combine lazy acting with intelligent thinking, you'll always be thinking of ways to increase your laziness. But if you combine lazy acting with lazy thinking, you end up a slave to other people's thinking. It's no coincidence that 70% of TV advertising paid for by pharmaceutical companies. And from a persuasion standpoint, they are VERY CLEVER. "Do you suffer from [hard to remember name] disease? Check with your doctor, you might be eligible for [hard to remember name] drug!" Two minutes later, all the average TV viewer can remember is if something (anything!) is wrong, your doc has a pill for it. Even if you live a lazy lifestyle, you can still live healthily. You can still eat healthy and do some exercises every day. It's one thing to ENJOY relaxing the couch. It's something else entirely to NEED to stay on the couch because standing and walking to the kitchen is exhausting! The same goes with thinking. Our brains are ALWAYS active. Meaning if you choose not to think, SOMEBODY is going to be doing your thinking for you. And most people who INTEND to do your thinking for you are just like those TV ads for drugs. They know EXACTLY how to put just the right amount of information in your brain. Luckily, you can exercise your brain just as easily as your body. If you get into the habit of doing brain exercises JUST LIKE body exercises, you'll be in tip top shape. Learn More: Hallucinating Mind
  3. Humans don't like risk. Whenever an action will yield questionable results, it makes us stop and think. Whenever an action will yield potentially BAD results, it almost guarantees we won't take action. It doesn't help that our conscious brains can only perceive a tiny sliver of what's really going on. This tends to make things seem WAY more risky than they are. Since part of our reptilian brains are always sorting for danger. Which makes it see potential fears everywhere. Even in vagueness. This comes across in weird ways. When we are contemplating ANY action, and the outcome is vague, even that will give us pause. If we do A, we'll get B, and then maybe C, but beyond that, it's just a vague cloudy future. And our reptilian looks into that cloudy future and even though there's NOTHIG there, it imagines fears. To make matters worse, our cognitive dissonance won't even allow us to see the potential fear out in the vague future. So we focus on the primary or secondary outcomes. And we use THOSE as an excuse for NOT taking action. It's kind of like walking slowly through an unfamiliar dark room. You have to walk slowly and not lift your feet up very much. Otherwise you might trip. Even though you're pretty sure there's nothing there, it still feels instinctively safe to go slower than you want to. So most of the time, unless we can see a GUARANTEED positive result, we usually won't take action. Worse, that guaranteed result usually has to be the primary or secondary result we can predict. But just like you can turn the light on in a dark room, you can turn the light on in your mind. The better you can imagine things, the further out you'll see. Meaning instead of seeing A causing B (and only and maybe what B will cause, you'll see a lot more. You'll immediately see four or five things that A might cause. And then another four or five things each one of those will cause. That means within the primary and secondary outcomes, you've got about 20 different things that COULD happen. So instead of comparing A and B to "vague danger," you're comparing about twenty potentially GOOD THINGS to "vague danger." Because this happens naturally, it will come across as feeling confident and spontaneous, instead of feeling timid and fearful. How do you develop this skill? By exercising your brain in ways to increase your imagination power. So you can see BEYOND the obvious, and out into the potential. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/hallucinating-mind/

    The Elephant Pattern

    There's a famous metaphor about God and an elephant. Or the elephant being a metaphorical idea of God. A bunch of blind guys are walking and come across an elephant. None of them have ever encountered an elephant before. So they each kind of feel around a different part. One guy grabs the tusk, another one the trunk, one guy the skin, another guy one of his feet. And based only on what they can feel, they have a completely different experience. Each one thinks his "thing" is unique. This is usually used to show how different cultures experience God in different ways, but It's (He or She) is really the same thing. But it makes an assumption about human perception. Maybe the metaphor, or maybe our brains. Most metaphors are incomplete. They have to be, since they are oversimplified pictures of a much more complex process. In NLP, this is described as the map not being the territory. Metaphors are not that which is being described. The are only helpful in giving a "big picture" idea. Because just as there are people who would like us to all have the same, vague, "God," there are plenty who are happy with the "my God is better than your God" argument. But what I want to point out is the metaphor itself. Why didn't those guys spend a little bit more time feeling around the elephant? If they spent a few minutes getting more data, feeling more areas, they would have had a much more complete idea of what they were encountering. The metaphor is pretty accurate when it comes to human ideas and thinking. We all have a "first glance" idea, and that first glance pretty much makes up our entire perception. Then we get into arguments because our "first glance" idea is different from somebody else's "first glance" idea. Way back in the day of Plato and Socrates, they had the idea of a dialectic. Meaning two guys would go back and forth, exchanging ideas. One guy would share his idea, and the other guy would look at that idea, and mix it into his idea, and they would go back and forth. The process of this "argument" was to DEVELOP a more complete idea. Very much like guys slowly moving around and reporting the ever changing structure of his part of the elephant. Eventually, they'd figure it was some huge animal with a long nose and a couple of tusks, and some big floppy ears. The "art" of developing more and more complex ideas is definitely a lost "art." But you can easily develop it. Which means you can take ideas from EVERYWHERE, and ALL TIME, and mix them together and see what you can come up with. And develop a much more complex view of "reality" in the process. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/hallucinating-mind/
  7. Ideally we humans go through two phases of life. When we are kids, and we expect others to take care of us. And when we are adults, and we take care of our own stuff. Of course, we are absolutely dependent on the massive global economy. If you tried to grow your own wheat to make your own bread, and then grow your own peanuts to make your own peanut butter, it would take a while. It's much easier to buy some bread and some peanut butter and make a sandwich. This is a very simple idea, but it's also nearly magical. Before they invented farming, production and consumption were the same thing. You had to chase and kill an animal before you could eat it. When you were chasing it, that was production. When you were eating it, that was consumption. Today, the two are a kajillion miles apart. Way back in the fifties, an economist wrote an essay called, "I, Pencil." Which described the MASSIVE global effort it took to make a simple pencil. Rubber, metal, graphite, paint wood. All from different parts of the world. Somehow, they end up down at your local pencil shop. Despite all the different elements (rubber, wood, paint, graphite) and all the people who participate the complex process, you can buy a pencil for fifty cents. The difference today from production (what you do for money) and consumption (what you can buy for that same money) is MASSIVE. And infinitely complex. Think about something way more complicated than a pencil or a peanut butter sandwich. Think about EVERYTHING that makes watching a movie at your local theater possible. From the movie itself, (actors, technicians, etc.) and the actual theater, there is tons of global cooperation needed so we can pay ten bucks, sit and turn our brains off and vicariously participate in an epic journey. This is a LONG WAY from chasing down an animal and killing it! And all this was done by how well we can IMAGINE things. The difference from way back then to now is ENORMOUS. But every step of the way is just a tiny change. And every single tiny change involves some human, just like you, looking at something that ALREADY exists and thinking, "Hmm, how could I make that better?" You have the same brain that every inventor, scientist and genius used. And you can use that very same thought. Look around, find something interesting and think: "Hmm. How could I make that better?"

  9. It's very common for people to slowly change how they think as they age. It's makes perfect sense from an objective standpoint. A young person looks out at the world, sees a bunch of stuff, and then compares that stuff to the stuff in their brain. The longer you are alive, the more stuff you have in your brain to compare stuff to. Structurally, it's very similar to thinking about a do-it-yourself job with only a couple of tools, vs. a huge toolset of tools. With only a screwdriver, some nails and a hammer, you wouldn't be able to accomplish much. But with an entire garage full of tools, especially tools that you could use, you would be able to take on FAR more complicated tasks. Most people fill the tools in their head slowly and organically. They are content to go through life, waiting for the EVENTS to provide the experience and memories. Some people purposely have new experiences, just so they have more experiences to rely on. This is a very advanced way of thinking. It's usually an idea that older people have when looking at younger people doing things. They say, "It will be a good experience for him." Meaning the person they are talking about will do a bunch of stuff, a bunch of unexpected things will happen, and they will be forced to respond, in the moment, to these unexpected things. These are generally the experiences that make up who we are. A few people don't just let it happen organically. They purposely seek new experiences, just for the sake of having new experiences. Even at a young age, they've learned that ANY experience is generally helpful in retrospect. This would be like PURPOSELY filling your garage with tools and eagerly learning how to use them. These are the folks that have a zeal for life, that do things just to see what will happen. This, of course, can be dangerous and expensive. There is, however, a much easier way. A way to fill your head with just as many experiences, which will translate into tools, that you can use to solve extremely complicated problems. You can gain these "mind tools" not only by having experiences. But by purposely IMAGINING certain things in certain ways. By creating a laboratory in your mind, you can do a lot more experimenting. Now, it might seem impossible. Most people close their eyes, with the intention of experimenting in the laboratory of their minds and see nothing but blackness. But building up your mental laboratory is a skill unto itself. And once you build your mental lab, the sky's the limit what you can do with it.

    How To Use Your Brain

    Thinking about brainpower requires brainpower. Brainpower is different than other skills. Very different. If you had zero upper body strength, you would know it. You could see somebody doing a pushup, and not be able to. You could see somebody benching 300 lbs, and not be able to. You could imagine what you couldn't do. But with brainpower, you are limited to what you can imagine. Meaning that we can't imagine what we can't imagine. One of the ways this presents itself is when we look at something AFTER it has been figured out. Before, it's one of those things that everybody stares at and has absolutely NO clue what to do. But then some guys comes along and fixes it, or figures it out, and everybody has the same idea: "Dang, why didn't I think of that?" Both general and special relativity are fairly simple. The math of special relatively is junior high school level. General relativity, not so much. But these two very simple ideas changed the way we look at reality. These two ideas that are EASY to understand AFTER we see them. Only the smartest guys since the dawn of time didn't even come close. They couldn't imagine what they couldn't imagine. But all it took was ONE GUY to come along and imagine it, and now EVERYBODY can imagine it. Most people don't think of this as a skill. In fact, most people don't think. They are presented with a problem, and sit around waiting for the solution to just "pop" into their brain. They might look to the side and PRETEND they are thinking, when in reality they are waiting for the magic idea fairy to deliver the answer. And when she doesn't deliver, they show a puzzled look. "Wow, I just can't think of anything!" Mark Twain once famously said the difference between people who DON'T read and people who CAN'T read is nothing. We can say the same about thinking. Not much difference between people who can't think and people who don't think. After all, thinking is hard. Why bother when so many things will do our thinking for us? TV, social media, whatever our friends are talking about. But if you take the time to practice thinking, not just random thoughts, but specific thoughts designed to increase your thinking skills, you can develop a very POWERFUL imagination. The more you practice imagining, the further out you'll be able to imagine things. So YOU can be the one coming with ideas. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/hallucinating-mind/

    Playful Games Of Genius

    Kids have a game they call "telephone." Maybe you've played it. The teacher whispers a sentence into one kid's ear. Then that kid whispers that into another kids' ear, and so on. By the time the "sentence" goes around the room, it's completely changed. Usually, this is seen as a fun game, but also an example of how we humans tend to mix up ideas. It's generally seen as a human weakness, that we can't our brains as perfect repeaters. If you had a class full of robots, for example, they wouldn't mess up the message. But if you think of all the stuff humans have invented, it uses the very same process of the telephone game. We perceive an idea out in the world. We take that idea into our brain and turn it over a few times. Then we slightly rebuild that idea. Sometimes, it doesn't make sense. Other times, the NEW idea is much better than ANYTHING ever created before. Every single invention we have, every single human breakthrough, every technological advance was created just like the telephone game. Only it happened both consciously and unconsciously. Ideas come in, and by mixing them with our conscious and unconscious thoughts, new ideas are borne. Then THESE ideas spread, and take on lives of their own. This is where all stories, ancient mythology, and even human language come from. All based on the very necessary idea that are brains are NOT perfect repeaters. They're more like prisms, filters, or resonance chambers. Ideas come in, are broken down into their components, and certain elements are strengthened and amplified. Luckily we are NOT perfect robots. And even luckier, you can do certain things to INCREASE the strength of your "idea generator." By practicing certain skills, you can take any idea (the same ideas that are floating in and out of everybody else's brain) and turn them into MAGIC. Simple daily drills, just like mental pushups or situps, that will significantly increase the power of your thinking brain. Your creating mind. Your imagining mind. This is the real advantage of all creative genius ideas that have significantly improved human life. These brilliant brains see and experience the same things everybody else does. But what they DO with those, inside their heads, makes all the difference. And by doing these simple exercises, YOU can make all the difference.

  12. One of the presuppositions of NLP is that flexibility is better, all else equal. Meaning if there is some contest, whoever is the most flexible in solving problems will win the contest. If you are a football team, and all you can do is run up the middle, and defend against runs up the middle, you won't do well against a team who can do everything. Short passes, long passes, no-huddle offenses, etc. The team that can respond differently to different situations will generally do better than a team with only a handful of plays. One of the reasons that Alexander the Great was such a bad ass was his armies were made up of all the various Greek City-States. They had a TON of different "fighting styles." Which meant he had a ton of flexibility as his disposal when he would come up against his various enemies, many of which significantly outnumbered him. One of the reasons humans are in charge of planet Earth (instead of say, Koalas, for example) is because of our brains. Our brains are the definition of flexible. In our long evolutionary history, those who had bigger brains were better for a TON of reasons. They could speak better, and tell more interesting stories. They could plan better, and communicate these plans persuasively. This allowed them to lead better. They could imagine better, and come up with new tools that were better than rocks. Every other animal has only a very small range where they can live. Except humans, who can think our way around problems, and live in deserts as well in igloos. Luckily, all the skills that gave humans an edge collectively can give us an edge individually. Thinking skills, planning skills, learning skills, communication skills, all these can be enhanced. Just like going to gym and eating properly can turn you from a flabby mess into a chiseled machine, doing the right brain exercises can turn you into a thinking and communicating powerhouse. And when you think about it, this is kind of odd. Our best asset as humans is our brains, not our bodies. But most people spend their lives strengthening their bodies, and not their brains. If you spent just a little bit of time strengthening your brain, you would have a HUGE advantage over nearly everybody on Earth. Since most of us believe that are brain skills are set. And once we have a certain level of brain skills, that's it. Luckily, that is not true. Not by a long shot. So when YOU start to do these brain exercises, you will be doing something that few people know exist. Get Started: http://mindpersuasion.com/hallucinating-mind/
  13. The world is a complicated place. Lucky for us humans, we come pre-built with certain filters. Some of these are programmed in, some are flexible. For example, we seem to come pre-built with filters that cause instant fear when we see a creepy crawly thing scurry across the floor. Maybe there was once was a race of people who thought snakes were cute, but they all got bit and died before they could pass that gene on. On the other side, we all are drawn to bright colors. If you were gazing across an ancient landscape, and you saw a cluster of colors, it usually meant something good. Sweet fruit, flowers (maybe bees and some honey) or at least some water. We also have tons of filters we can build in. Like our names. Nobody is born knowing their name, but pretty soon it's the sweetest thing we'll ever hear. On top of the idea of filters is the idea of models. These are more temporary. They can help us make sense of an overly complicated world. Turns out there are three very POWERFUL models that make it very easy to focus on improving ANY skill. Three areas that when improved, all other skills will be improved. If you look back in history, every single creation that has helped mankind has been borne of these three skills. Skills that everybody has in varying degrees. Skills that can be improved with daily practice. Which means the MORE you focus on improving these three skill, the easier everything will be. Yes, everything.

    Get A Six Pack Brain

    It's pretty common these days to beef up at the gym. Some psychologists say that in bad economic times, more guys end up in the gym getting ripped. If they can't impress the ladies with their salaries, they'll impress them with their abs. Even if you aren't interested in impressing anybody, getting and staying in shape has a ton of benefits. You sleep better, you eat better, you feel better. Unless you've got some hidden, psychotic reasons for getting in shape, getting a lean mean body provides TONS of benefits. Of course, it does require a very necessary thinking process. One that more and more people seem to be having trouble with these days. And that is putting in some kind of effort TODAY, or a benefit in the FUTURE. More and more people have the idea that they won't lift a finger unless they get immediate and guaranteed benefit. This idea is VERY DANGEROUS. It's easy, and it's hard to escape from. Once you get into the habit of doing something NOW for a benefit NOW, it's hard to get out of. Paradoxically, if you do something like basic exercise long enough, you actually get benefit NOW (while you do it) AND into the future. This is generally true for all "healthy" behavior. It only "sucks" in the beginning. But there is one area where FEW people even THINK about building a better future. Of doing things TODAY to make a much better TOMORROW. It's common and even popular with ideas like health and fitness. But just as important as your body is, there is something MUCH MORE important. Your brain. Consider what would happen if you spent as much time exercising your brain as some people did their bodies. Sure, it's cool to walk the earth with some impressive guns and a six pack. But with a powerful BRAIN? That would actually be worth a TON of money! How do you exercise your brain? Luckily, there are really only THREE areas to focus on. Unlike your body, which has tons of different muscles. But the more you work on these THREE areas of your brain, the more you can do whatever you want with life.

  15. A while back I used to do lot of rock climbing with a co-worker. Different climbs have different lengths. The measure of a climb is how many "pitches" it is. One pitch is essentially the length of a rope. The first guy that goes up "leads." He carefully puts in the pieces of protection, or "pro." Then he loops the rope through these pieces of pro. The guy on the ground slowly feeds the rope up as he climbs. So if the lead falls, he'll fall twice as far as the last piece of pro. Since he's got to fall past it until the rope catches him. Anyhow, my friend would always "lead" and I would always "follow," as well as "clean." Cleaning means taking out all the pro, and clipping it onto your harness. One day, as we were getting ready to leave, he said, "Hey, I want to show you this one climb. It's pretty easy, only one pitch." It was also a face climb, which meant it didn't have any huge holds or ledges. You had to go pretty quickly, and make sure you were balanced carefully. Most rock climbing walls you'll find in gyms and other places have HUGE hand holds and foot holds. (Called "bomber jugs") Face climbs don't. You have to accurately "read" the face. And you have to move quickly. No resting. Anyway, my friend knew I was TERRIFIED of face climbs. They were very much a mental, inner game. One stray thought of anxiety and you'd start sliding down. So he told me it was a 5.5. They measure climbs just like they measure earthquakes. On a logarithmic scale. A 5.5 was pretty easy for me. So he goes first, I follow. And it did seem pretty easy. My friend was grinning the whole time. I get to the top, and he siad, "Wow, you walked right up that." Meaning I didn't pause and look around. Very much the "flow state" of just acting without thinking. "Yeah," I said, "it's only a 5.5." "Actually," my friend said, "I lied. It's really a 5.9." Now, a 5.9 was something I'd NEVER done. Let alone a 5.9 face climb. Had he told me it was a 5.9 face climb, I NEVER would have tried. But because I THOUGHT it was easy, it was easy. Just like everything else. So long as you don't let those stray thoughts of fear and worry creep into your mind, everything's easy. So, what do you do? Find a friend that will always trick you? When it works, it works. Or you could systematically find all the fears in your brain, and kill them before they sprout. Pull them out at their root. Because without any fears holding you back, EVERYTHING becomes easy.
