  2. Anti-piracy Affirmations

    I've heard about people using those kinds of things before. Not sure how effective they'd be. Subliminals (and hypnosis) doesn't really work unless the listener agrees with the statements, and WANTS them to be true. So somebody who illegally downloads content wouldn't likely be affected by anti-piracy subliminals. Hypnosis and subliminals aren't nearly as "mind control" like as people hope. They DO require participation.
  3. There are horizon goals and milestone goals. You need both to succeed. Consider that it may be helpful to be going TOWARD being a billionaire, and at the same time, being OK if you never get there. No matter WHAT your goals are, you will need to set a new one as soon as any one of them is achieved. Different people treat this different ways. Some are content to only set short term, achievable, goals, knowing they will keep setting new ones once they achieve them. Others are better with huge "horizon goals" like becoming a billionaire, knowing that so long as they keep going in that direction, they'll be fine. Also understand the subconscious (contrary to popular belief) doesn't really speak in literal language. It is much more metaphorical. All of the subliminals are designed to create a "sum total effect" where the overall beliefs and resulting behaviors will stem from how each individual's subconscious interprets all statements COLLECTIVELY. This is also why having a strong clear INTENTION along with the statements is vital. Subliminal Effect = Sum Total of Statements + Visualized Intention + Daily Journaling And Behavior
  4. Wealth tuning is much more comprehensive, much more than a subliminal. A manual with the theory of money, wealth creation, etc. ISG is more of a mental fine tuning, for people who are already in the process of making a living. Wealth Tuning is much better if you're starting from scratch. But it's not a magic bullet. You won't get rich by listening. It takes plenty of conscious understanding, mental exercises, daily drills and shift of how you think. It requires your FULL participation.
  5. Upgrade Your Equilibrium

    I read a study regarding weight loss. It was done by some British organization, and the results were less than inspiring. It said that less than 2% of people who lost a significant amount of weight kept it off for a significant amount of time. Meaning that they managed to lose weight, but nearly all of them eventually gained it back. Now, it's a very easy excuse to say, "Well, most people can't do it so I'm not even going to try." This more or less GUARANTEES you'll never have any kind of success. After all, most humans are very comfortable doing what everybody else does. If you want to get MORE than what most people get, you'll either have to do something DIFFERENT than most people do, or you'll have to get lucky. Since getting lucky is, by definition, putting control of your life out of your hands, that's not my favorite strategy. But let's take a look at how we can be in that 2%. The people who ARE successful. For one thing, when people think of losing weight, like they think of any success, they commonly think of it as a STATIC goal. Like you do a bunch of work to lose fifty pounds, and then you're done. This works if you're physically moving toward a finish line. You can push yourself really hard to achieve a static goal. But a lower weight (like any other success) is a new level of EQUILIBRIUM. Weight is easy to see. Your weight is a balance between calories consumed and calories spent. So right off the bat, if you have weight loss as a "goal" you might be doomed before you start. Goals are static things. They are metaphorically thought of as a PLACE. We say we "reach" our goal. Just like you reach for something physical. If you have a goal of saving money to buy something, that's fine. It's a finite thing. Once you get to that amount of money, you buy the thing, and you're done. But health and financial goals, (as well as pretty much all other goals) are states of equilibrium. These are not static. They need to be maintained, like any other state of equilibrium. If you are juggling three balls, your mind-body-ball system is in certain state of equilibrium. When you are riding a bicycle, your mind-body-bike system is in a certain state of equilibrium. The more complicated the process, the more complicated the equilibrium state. How do you "get to" a complicated NEW state of equilibrium? Very, very slowly. If you go too fast, the new state will be HARD to maintain. But if you go very slow, each new state will be just as easy as the previous state. Which means you won't be "chasing goals" you'll be continuously UPGRADING your equilibrium.

  6. Find Your Rosebud

    I recently read an interesting article about Elon Musk. The super rich, super genius that is going to take us to mars. He was talking about a recent break up he had. What was interesting was the interview had to pause while he went and composed himself. Apparently at the time of the interview, the breakup was fairly recent. He admitted that his biggest fear is being alone. Not with anybody to share his life with. It reminded me of "Rosebud." Rosebud is the name of the sled in the famous Orson Welles movie, "Citizen Kane." A fictionalized account of William Randolph Hearst, the billionaire newspaper man. At the end of the movie, the protagonist whispered, "Rosebud." The name of his childhood sled. He was recalling when he was a young child. Poor but happy. Having fun, being with his family, not worrying about anything. In the movie, his financially poor dad gave him to another family hoping he'd have a better life. It seems plenty of rich and famous people have a secret "weakness." Even the strongest super heroes (like Superman) all have ONE weakness. At the end of the original King Kong, the famous quote (which was really made up for the movie) was about how "it was beauty the killed the beast." This reflects a fundamental part of human nature. Of the human experience. That no matter HOW MUCH outer success we can achieve, if we don't have healthy relationships, we'll feel empty inside. It's almost as if all that worldly success is to keep us from facing what's missing inside. But as the famous line goes, "No matter where you go, there you are." Which means before you embark on ANY "worldly" venture, it might be a good idea to do some introspection. Figure out what's going on deep inside. Embrace it, accept it, and fix whatever needs fixing. This takes time, and can be pretty scary. But it is pretty easy. All you need is your brain, a notebook, and a few minutes a day. Learn More: NLP Mind Magic
  7. We humans have been telling each other stories for a long time. Long before written language was invented. What was the purpose of these stories? Generally speaking, anything that is ubiquitous to human culture serves a lot of different purposes. But think of stories as motivational tools. But not like we think of today's "motivational speakers." Today's motivational speakers are more like entertainers. They rouse us up, we feel the energy, but then we go home. And pretty soon, it wears off. Stories that TRULY motivate us work on a much different level. They actually serve as tools. For example, imagine a bunch of cave people sitting around. Listening to the local storyteller tell some epic adventure. Hero's journey type story, of man vs. monster. They are quiet and intensely listening. Not jumping around and screaming like today's motivational speaker audiences. Then maybe a couple of days later, they'll be out hunting. Maybe all alone, or maybe with a couple of buddies. And they'll see a big animal. Then they'll REMEMBER how the hero killed the monster. Or how the hero BECAME the hero after he killed the monster. This is the motivation. No screaming and yelling required. Just a small internal shift. Imperceptible to an outside observer. But monumental to the one who remembers. He sees the monster, and feels fear. But then he recalls the hero, and how the hero acted in the face of fear. And because the hero acted IN SPITE of his fear, so will he. A subtle yet monumental shift. From "I don't know if I can do this," to "I can do this." What motivates you? What heroes can you recall in time of need? Perhaps the future you? Who has already destroyed all the obstacles you haven't faced yet? Or one of your most respected and admired historical figures? Upon whom you can call upon in time of need? Once you understand the structure of mythical heroes, and how they motivate us, you can create your own. Not just one, or two. But a whole army. Ready to have your back when you fight the daily battles of life. Inspiring you to continuously conquer. Learn More: NLP Mind Magic
  8. There's an idea in economics about the relationship between entry barriers and remuneration. For example, jobs that are very hard to get, and in high demand, tend to pay pretty well. On the other hand, jobs that are easy to get don't usually pay so much, since pretty much anybody can get them. This is based on the law of supply and demand. If something is in very large supply, it's usually pretty cheap. If something is in very short supply, AND in high demand, then it's pretty expensive. Skills that everybody has AND aren't in very high demand aren't usually worth much. It would be great to be a professional "Netflix Watcher," and get paid bank, but unfortunately, that's just not the way it is. On the other hand, there ARE some pretty easy things you can do, that done consistently will build up some POWERFUL skills. They are easy to do once, so doing them once isn't very special. It's doing them consistently, and building up some real skills that will make them worth a lot. What kind of skills? Mental skills. Thinking skills. Most people are under the impression that once you "learn" some new thinking technique, you only need to do is once or twice. In other areas, it's obvious how silly this is. Imagine the first day of your piano lessons, and you're teacher said: "Ok, watch me carefully," and then she played Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata." And when she was done, she said: "OK, you try." Most normal people would look at here like she was crazy. But for some reason, we don't seem to think that thinking skills just take as much time to practice as piano skills, or sport skills. Which means NOBODY practices new thinking techniques. And that also means that if YOU practice five or ten minutes a day, pretty soon you'll have a very powerful brain. What kind of thinking can you change? How you feel about social situations. Instead of feeling nervous or anxious, you can feel relaxed, normal, outgoing, however you want to feel. You can change how you feel about pretty much anything. Yourself, your skills, your potential. How strongly you hold your frame. Pretty much anything that involves communication and persuasion can be significantly enhances with some simple and CONSISTENT practice. Because so few people practice these type of things, pretty soon you'll have some very IN DEMAND skills. Get Started: NLP Mind Magic
  9. Stretch Your Brain

    When I was a kid I loved puzzles. Not the jigsaw type, the bigger ones. These small, 3D objects that could only fit together in one configuration. Once you figured it out, it was less interesting. Many people treat life as a puzzle. Like there's a "right way" and a "wrong way" to do things. To be sure, there are some things that are DANGEROUS to do. Like robbing banks is probably not a good way to make a living. But within the commonly accepted morals, ethics and laws, there isn't really any "rules." Of course, many people don't like this idea. Many people are afraid of taking risks. After all, if you stray from the common path, you might mess up. And if you did things differently than most people, and you made a mistake, everybody would laugh and point fingers at you. Or at least that's what we imagine. So most of us are content to do what we're told, not do anything too crazy. But think of all the people who made a HUGE impact on society. For whatever reasons. Scientists, artists, entrepreneurs. They didn't do what they did by following the well worn path. One time a young entrepreneur asked the founder of Sony how one could double their success rate. The founder of Sony, by then an old experienced business person, answered: Double your failure rate. If you are afraid to fail, you'll only learn what works. Which is the same stuff that everybody else learns. Which means you'll get the same stuff everybody else gets. If you want to make a difference, then you've got to do things differently. Different actions stem from different thinking. Different thinking requires practice. But it's pretty easy, since you can try out different ways of thinking safely within your own brain. Nobody needs to know except you. And when the new ways of thinking become familiar so will the new ways of acting. That's when things get fun. Learn More: NLP Mind Magic
  10. Are You A Drone?

    When I was a kid I loved playing with Legos. I had this huge drawer filled with various blocks. The cool thing about them was you could build anything. The same with Tinker Toys. They usually came in a box with a specific design, but I was never very good at following instructions. So I ended up with this humongous "junk drawer" will miscellaneous Lego and Tinker Toy pieces. Hard to imagine I could entertain myself with a bunch of plastic blocks. But never underestimate the power of the human imagination. Most animals have very specific traits. Even some have something called an "extended phenotype." The phenotype is the structure, the genotype is the genetic code or design for said structure. Like your brown eyes are the phenotype, but the part of your genes that program your brown eyes are the genotype. Some animals have an "extended" phenotype. Like bees who are programmed to build hives. Or beavers and dams. Or snails to find a specific shell. But humans have a "meta" extended phenotype. Bees always build the same hives. Since as long as bees have existed, they've built the same honeycomb shape. But humans have a meta skill. We look out at whatever exists, and build ON TOP of existing structures. This is why we keep inventing more stuff. Bees always take the same raw materials, and make the same hives. We humans look out at what IS, and imagine how we can make it BETTER. And as long as humans have been around, we've been doing this. As long as we'll BE around, we'll KEEP doing this. Unfortunately, despite this latent tendency that lives in ALL of us, very few of us put it to any use. Most of us are content to do the same stuff every day. To do what we're told, not get in trouble. But unlike bees, who are BORN into their roles (drones, workers, queens, etc.) we humans can DO or BE anything. It all starts with how you think. The thoughts that are the seeds of your actions. Which will you choose? Sameness, safeness, and mediocrity? Or greatness? Be Bold: NLP Mind Magic
  11. How To Train Your Brain

    I've never been very good at following the rules. When I was a little kid, I sort of "discovered" that you could get away with anything so long as you played dumb. If you got caught, you just said, "I thought it would be OK?" Of course this only worked for so long. Once in biology class, we were doing a chemistry experiment. We had two different liquids, and our teacher said not to mix them under any circumstances. Which, of course, caused me to mix them just to see what the big deal was. Nothing really happened except me getting kicked out of class. Some rules are important. Basic laws, private property rights, and just common sense. But some times, it's worth it to try things just to see. One set of rules is how we think about and operate in the world around us. We all have a collection of ideas about what we are "supposed to do." Like order an appetizer, an entree, and then a dessert, in that order. Nobody would ever think of doing it backwards. But they all end up in the same place. One of the problems with us humans is we have a lot of leftover instincts. One of them makes us sketchy about doing anything that would make us too "different." We generally try to fit in as best as we can. Most of us don't wear clothes that are too far off the general trends, for example. But the flip side of that strategy, of being safely in the middle of the pack, is we end up living lives that are safely in the middle of the pack. If you do the same stuff everybody else does, you'll get the same stuff everybody else does. If you want to be above average, you have to ACT above average. More importantly, you've got to THINK above average. Most people spend their free time purposely NOT thinking. Or worse, feeling anxious that they are surrounded by familiar people doing familiar things. Before you can act differently, you've got to think differently. And just like anything else, thinking differently requires practice. How do you practice? Like this: NLP Mind Magic
  12. There's a lot of cool hallucinations in mathematics. Way back in junior high school, I was a super-geek. I loved reading books about quantum physics. Books that had all the math taken out, but had all the cool stuff. Like the idea that a photon is sometimes a particle, and sometimes a wave. But in pure math there are some doozies. There are some shapes, that have an infinite circumference, but a finite volume. Meaning if you took a piece of string and tried to wrap it around the outside, it would go on forever. But if you measured the area inside this infinite length of string, you'd get a finite measurement. Another one is tossing a coin. If you toss a coin an infinite amount of times, something goofy would happen. The ratio (heads divided by tails) would approach 1.0. Like 1.0 with a kajillion zeros. But the difference (heads minus tails) would approach infinity. Some things are easy to think about. But the more you keep digging beneath the surface, the less they make sense. They say human knowledge is like a the shoreline of an island. The more stuff we understand, the bigger the shoreline gets. But the bigger the shoreline gets, the bigger the vast ocean representing human cluelessness gets. Clearly, we aren't built to think about things. If we had to think about EVERYTHING, we'd be stuck. Luckily, we have some built in programs to help us. Things that drive us to behave in different ways. A kind of "behavioral thermostat." But it's very easy for this behavioral thermostat to get knocked out of whack. When that happens, it not only perceives data incorrectly, but the signals it sends us are kind of messed up. We misinterpret the world around us, and the things we are driven to do are difficult, when they should be easy. If you had a thermostat in your house that was like this, it would suck. The thermostat might think it was -20 when it was really 80 degrees. So in the summer, it would keep the heat on high. If this happened, you'd call some guy to come and fix it. How can you fix your own thermostat if it's giving you wrong signals? With this: Ego Taming
  13. Lessons From Bees

    Everywhere you look, you'll find cycles. Earth around the sun. Moon around the Earth. Earth around it's access. Tides, seasons. Even astrological "ages" are based on the cycles built into our galaxy and solar system, as they are dependent on star configurations. Bees have their own set of cycles. They can tell when the summer solstice happens. When the suns angles reach a maximum at the maximum point of the day. Bees are good with angles. When they go out looking for food, they come back and report their findings. They fly around in a figure eight. The size and angle of the figure eight describe the size and direction of the source of food. All the hunters come back, have a quick pow-wow to see who's found the biggest treasure, and they all go off in that direction. They don't argue, or worry who's going to get credit, or make sure they won't get into trouble if their wrong. They gather, they share, they decide, they go. When they all recognize the summer solstice (from the angle of the sun) they start getting ready for winter. Automatically, collectively, unconsciously. A bee hive in winter needs to be configured much differently than a beehive in summer. All of these are unconscious and instinctive feedback signals. We humans have a ton of these as well. But due to how we are born (with brains not nearly as big as they'll be when they are fully developed) we also have a ton of learning. On top of that, we have a conscious mind. We think, we have instincts, and we can learn new instincts. When these three systems are working in harmony, there is NOTHING we cannot do. Especially when you've got a group of like minded people together. Land on the moon? No problem. Split the atom? No problem. But this isn't guaranteed. We also do a lot of less than cool things. Both as groups and as individuals. As individuals, it's very easy to slip out of balance. To feel conflicted. We want to get something, but we fear it at the same time. It's very easy to feel stuck. But with a little understanding, and some mental exercises, you can re-claim your natural balance. And be much more in tune with your nature. And once ALL the parts of you are aligned, you'll be unstoppable. Learn How: Ego Taming
  14. Reach Escape Velocity

    The idea of being congruent is very compelling. It's also one of those words that can mean different things to different people. A related word is resonance. If you are a little kid on a swing, and you "resonate" the frequency of your legs to the natural frequency of the swing, you can get some pretty big oscillations. Of course, little kids DON'T think: "Let's see, first I'll need to do some trial and error testing to elicit the natural frequency of this swing. Then I'll use that as a feedback system and attempt to oscillate my legs at that same resonance frequency. If I'm successful, then theoretically I should create a maximum level of oscillation." They don't think. They just naturally swing their legs until they get higher and higher. And when they decide to jump out, they also DON'T think: "Ok, timing is critical. I need to exit this system at the simultaneous maximum of my oscillations while taking the cosine of my exit with respect to the ground to achieve a maximum of both vertical height and horizontal distance." They just leap out. This is how life is SUPPOSED to be. We aren't supposed to stand there and use calculus to plan every action. We are supposed to resonate naturally with the systems around is, and achieve a maximum amount of benefit for the minimum amount of effort. This is EXACTLY why kids love swinging on the swings, and jumping out. With very little effort, (swinging their legs back and forth) they can literally LAUNCH THEMSELVES up into the air. A temporary ESCAPE VELOCITY from the ground. But for some reason, when we grow up, we lose this ability. In fact, this natural "flow state" is so rare, it's considered a physiological and psychological anomaly. This is one of the drawbacks of living in a modern society. On one hand, we've got tons of cool stuff. But the cost for this is the TONS of data hitting our senses. So much it's VERY HARD to find that natural resonance that comes from being fully CONGRUENT with our nature. But if you were to find a local park and get on the swing set, you would remember how to have fun. That is, if you allowed yourself to. And with a little conscious thought and understanding, you can recalibrate your inner resonance system to the modern world. And reach that coveted flow state much more often. Learn How: Ego Taming
