  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct16Post.mp4 Once I was hanging out a buddies house. We had just come back from a long backpacking trip. Since his apartment complex had a pretty large laundry room, we decided we'd do all our laundry there. While we were hanging out, I grabbed a magazine and went the restroom. While I was in there, I saw a spider. A big one. I immediately recoiled. But then I laughed. We'd just got back from backpacking. No showers for a week. Sleeping on a tarp, on the ground. Surrounded by bugs and fish (that we caught and ate) and even a few deer and bears. Under this context, seeing a spider or any other critter wouldn't even register. But in a clean bathroom, where it's NOT expected, it can seem a bit unsettling. Context is everything. Expectations are also very important. For example, imagine a waiter at a restaurant. They introduce themselves, ask questions and make recommendations to strangers all the time. They expect to ask questions, and have them answered. The customers expect to be asked questions, and have them answered. But that same waiter in different environment might be the shyest person you'll ever meet. He wouldn't dare approach a stranger, ask questions and make recommendations. But this is EXACTLY why people go to social places. To meet people. To ask questions. To be asked questions. And to make recommendations. What recommendations? Simple ones like this: "Hey, I enjoyed talking to you. Why don't we exchange numbers so we can get together sometime?" Sometimes this is easy. Sometimes this is extremely difficult. One common way to approach this "problem" is to develop a very strong frame. After all, if you have a strong frame, a compelling frame, it's much easier to make suggestions. But this is one of those things that is very easy in theory, but very hard in practice. Holding a strong frame is not so easy when you are talking to somebody you just met. And when the entire reason you are talking to them is they have something you'd like to have. Their presence, their energy, their personality, etc. So the common response is to keep building a very strong frame. So strong it's the strongest frame around. This is possible, but it's very difficult. The opposite, on the other hand, is very easy. To purposely come with a WEAKER frame. And to ask easy to answer questions from that weaker frame. Questions that will build up their desire and attraction to YOU. Very uncommon, very powerful, and very, very easy. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/get-anybody/

  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct15Post.mp4 If you are a kid, your mom doesn't want you hanging around with sketchy characters. Because you'll unconsciously soak up bad behaviors. This is how humans learn. Most teachers attempt this ancient technique, but they fail miserably. Learning and well as teaching are both instincts. They have to be. Since humans brains have been growing very large for at least a million years. Right around when we discovered fire. This was long before language was invented. But we still had to learn, and to teach. Plenty of lower animals do this. Just not as well as us humans. We learn, and teach, through a process called modeling. This is one of those buzzwords everybody uses but nobody understands. If you've ever been around kids, and you accidentally let loose an F-bomb, you know exactly what modeling is. Even if the kid didn't notice, you and all the other adults will. Even if you don't have kids, and you are hanging with a bunch of buddies somewhere, if there is a group of kids nearby, everybody will NATURALLY keep the f-bombs to a minimum. We even SAY why. We don't want to "teach" them bad words. Even though we're not standing up in front of a chalk board. "Ok, children, repeat after me: Mother fu....." Just saying these words out loud is enough. This is how modeling works. The learner UNCONSCIOUSLY picks up things from the TEACHER. Back in the old days of apprenticeships, the apprentice would watch and copy the master. The master wouldn't need to talk. The apprentice wouldn't need to listen or take notes or study. Just watch and copy. Copy consciously, and copy unconsciously. This is why your mom doesn't want you hanging out with hoodlums. Because of all the unconscious things you may pick up. Why is this important? Because we choose our friends, and lovers, based on how well we LIKE to pick up things from them unconsciously. How we like to unconsciously teach them. This is EXACTLY why the phrase, "imitation is the deepest form of flattery" is absolutely correct. So the best way to let somebody know you like and appreciate them is to copy them. However, this presents a problem. Suppose you see somebody you want to get to know. And you want to make a nice impression. It wouldn't be a good idea to get close and start copying all their movements. That would be CREEPY. But this is where a related idea comes in. To be interesting TO somebody, you need to be interested IN that somebody. This is very close to the "imitation = flattery" idea. Luckily, there is a very simple, and very straightforward set of questions you can ask. Easy to ask, easy to answer, and will make them feel VERY GOOD about you.

  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct14Post.mp4 Once I had this coworker. He was in his late 30's, and hadn't exercised in a while. He decided that he would begin to exercise. And like most people, he started much too fast. His plan was to go down to the local track, and alternate between jogging and sprinting. This is, actually, a very good workout. But it requires you can handle it. He couldn't. He nearly blew out his knees and couldn't walk right for a week. This a very common human phenomenon. To have an idea, and a half baked plan. And then take off like gangbusters, and then get blown out. This CAN lead one to believe we have insufficient willpower. Because this is not only a common scenario, but a common response, that there is a HUGE meta belief that us humans lack willpower. But this is absolutely and utterly false. Think about it from a cost-benefit analysis. When you start any kind of self development program, the BENEFITS are huge. They are fantastic and wonderful. Overestimated. The costs are small, since you haven't really started. Underestimated. But the MORE you move forward from fantasy to reality, the BENEFITS start o decrease, and the costs start to increase. Eventually, you'll get to a tipping point where the costs are GREATER than the benefits. Quitting is absolutely RATIONAL. In fact, willpower has NOTHING to do with this. Imagine if you signed up for a streaming service like Netflix. And when it started, the movies were AWESOME. And it was only $2 per month. But a year later, the movies absolutely SUCKED. And they wanted $100 per month. Most people would QUIT the service. Because the COSTS are greater than the BENEFITS. Nobody would think they lacked willpower. This is very, very common in self help. To start off like gangbusters, and then later quit. Nothing to do with willpower. Everything to do with costs and benefits. Even worse is that most self help is HARD. Exercise is HARD. Talking to strangers is HARD. Anything related to social exposure and potential rejection is HARD. Or it usually is. It is the way most courses and books present interpersonal communication. But there is a way that is very EASY. And unlike all the other self-help flim flam, the more you do this, the EASIER it gets. The longer you practice these ideas, the benefits will INCREASE. The costs will DECREASE. That's because it's all based on a very deep, and very powerful mental reframe. Not on you. On others. One you do on yourself. Once you flip THIS switch, you'll be amazed.

  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct13Post.mp4 If you were to approach strangers on the street and try and sell them a religion, this would be one of the hardest sells there is. In sales, there is the hard sell, and the soft sell. The soft sell is much, uh, softer. It's when the salesperson is the opposite of pushy. Like the guy who works in the electronics store and is paid only 10% of his salary on commission. And he's a tech geek so he knows everything about everything. He enjoys talking about the products. And since he only gets a little bit of a bump of he sells something, it's not that important to him. He'd much rather have a friendly conversation with the stuff he likes talking about. These are the guys and gals that are the most natural salespeople. Which, paradoxically, are the ones that make the least from each sale. On the other hand, you get somebody in the same situation whose ENTIRE salary is based on commission. For these folks, if they don't sell, they can't pay their rent. So THESE conversations are going to be the most hard sell oriented. Now consider a guy approaching people on the street to sell some religion. They really believe that if they don't convince you, your SOUL is in danger. It's one thing to walk into a shop. You have at least SOME interest in the stuff they are selling. But if somebody approaches you cold on the street, trying to pitch some religion, this has an EXTREMELY low closing rate. But the flip side is pretty fun. If you see a couple of goofs approaching you. And you KNOW they are going to sell you some religion. From this perspective, it is VERY EASY to mess with them. Ask a few meta model questions, and pretty soon they WON'T know how to answer them. They are EXPECTING a few minutes of the hard sell. Of them pitching and you resisting. They are NOT expecting some meta model questions designed to get SPECIFIC answers. Once I got rid of two Mormons in less than a minute. After only a few meta model questions, they were looking at their watches. They couldn't get away from me fast enough! I purposely kept a LOWER frame. I purposely asked targeted meta model questions. My INTENTION was to generate confusion in their minds, about their own religion. And with a lower framed, and some meta model questions, it was EASY. And it's equally easy to create ANY intention by combining a specifically lower frame, and some directed meta model questions. Not only is it EASY, but it's very, very fun.

  10. Hidden Insanity Revealed https://mindpersuasion.com/hidden-insanity-revealed/ https://soundcloud.com/mindpersuasion/hidden-insanity-revealed https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct13Loop.mp4
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct12Post.mp4 Pretty people have it much easier than non pretty people. This is something that everybody kind of feels, and knows, but it's extremely hard to talk about. But it happens to be one of those things that can lead to some stunning realizations. A rough metaphor would be if you have deep money anxiety. Like most people do. Most people hate to balance their bank account. You go to the ATM, and even if you know you just got paid, you got this horrible fear of getting the dreaded, "insufficient funds" message. This leads to all kinds of horrible, mostly subconscious, conclusions. The halo effect is similar. If we do admit there IS a halo effect, it's bad for everybody. At least initially. If you are one of the pretty people, it means that it's not really YOU that's doing the work. It's your genetic gifts. Nobody gives a crap about your ideas and thoughts and beliefs. So long as they are coming out of a pretty face, that's good enough. This is why naturally attractive people HATE to be told that their success is largely due to their looks. On the flip side, normal looking folks like us HATE the halo effect idea just as much. Since we're NOT genetically gifted with gorgeous looks, there's not much we'll EVER be able to do. Both sides are correct, but only in a VERY superficial way. Because with a little effort, you can CREATE your own halo effect. No matter HOW you look. How's that? First, let's understand exactly HOW the halo effect works. It's not conscious. It's purely subconscious. The halo effect is when we feel a deep physical attraction. A deep and ancient POSITIVE feeling. And whatever the pretty person is talking about will be UNCONSCIOUSLY associated with that ancient, deep, positive feeling. It's critical to understand this is NOT conscious. Which means if you can CREATE a positive feeling in the other person, it will have the SAME effect. Even better is a genetically based halo effect has only one setting. Because it's based on their physical presence. But a custom made halo effect is based on their unique dreams and desires and fantasies. Which means you can BUILD it as strongly as you want. And since it's based ONLY on the ideas that exist inside THEIR brain, it doesn't matter WHO you are. It doesn't matter WHAT you look like. Not only does it NOT matter who you are or what you look like, since EVERYBODY'S got an endless stream of desires in their brain, you can use this technique on anybody you want.

  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct11Post.mp4 They say that no man is an island. What does this mean, specifically? Nobody can exist on their own. Even you happen to have a fat enough bank account, and nice cabin far away from society, it is impossible to survive without other people. The stuff you buy has to be made by other people. The plumbing and electricity in your home has to be maintained by other people. Once a science writer tried, as an experiment, to make a toaster from scratch. Something that you can get for $20. Something so simple we take it for granted. But he wanted to see how complicated it would to build one. Entirely from scratch. Not buying the parts and putting them together. But creating the copper and the metal and the rubber and everything. It turned out that it was impossible. That's just the toaster. Making bread would be equally difficult. Grow the wheat, grind the wheat, mix it with water, put it in the oven. Of course, that oven would be need to be made. So even if you've got tons of money, getting what you want absolutely depends on other people. Sometimes this is as easy as handing over the cash, and them handing over whatever it is you want. Some bread, a toaster, etc. But what about things that can't be purchased? Like friendship or love? What about the money itself? Turns out this is where most people have the most trouble. The non-financial transactions. Making friends, creating relationships, and creating fat income streams. This isn't something they teach in school. Not even business school. Sure, they have all kinds of theories. But these theories are pretty vague. Especially when it comes to making friends and collecting romantic partners. The most common advice is very, very vague. Be yourself. Be more confident. Make a move. Easy for those who do those things easily. But what about the rest of us? What SPECIFICALLY do we do? What SPECIFICALLY do we say? Luckily, there is a system. A very simple system. To get from where you are, to where you want to be. To create fantastic feelings in others. So they'll be MORE than willing to help you get what you want. Whatever it is. Especially if it comes from them. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/get-anybody/

  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct10Post.mp4 A very common idea in romantic movies is the oddball couple who finally "get" each other. The famous line from Jerry McGuire is when he showed up and said: "You complete me." This is a very yin-yang, soul mate, idea. The idea that we have strengths and weaknesses. And that there is somebody out there, at least potentially, who is a perfect match. Their strengths will fill in our weaknesses. And our strengths will fill in their weaknesses. The "you get me" idea is also very common. To finally find somebody who truly understands us. Not just understands us, but understands and ACCEPTS us. Everybody would love to find somebody like this. Not just in a romantic way, but as a friend, or even from a person selling stuff. If you can find somebody selling something that is deliberately geared toward your own unique needs, chances all you'll keep buying from us. This was a marketing angle from Burger King way back in the day. "Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce, special orders don't upset us..." They wanted to differentiate themselves from every other fast food place by deliberating promoting the idea of custom-made fast food. Anytime we humans find somebody that stops what they are doing and pays REAL attention to us, we remember. Even better is if they make us feel comfortable enough to trust them, so we can share certain things about ourselves. Things we dare not share with acquaintances. Even better, is if they not only accept those things about us, but they admire us and appreciate us because of them. This is why so many goofy romance movies have that similar theme. You get me. You complete me. You understand me. This is because EVERYBODY feels the same way. Everybody you see, every single day, has tons of these UNMET needs. Which means if you can figure out a way to make THEM feel comfortable enough to share them with you, they'll do ANYTHING for you. All it takes is a few questions. A few follow up questions and off you go. The hardest part will be keeping your ideas to yourself. This is much more difficult than it seems. To let the OTHER PERSON keep the conversational spotlight. But if you can manage that, you can build up an INSANE amount of desire in them. Not just desire, but raw desire energy. That you can attach to anything you want. Your business, your ideas, or you. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/get-anybody/

  18. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct09Post.mp4 A long time ago, I had a low level job as a technician. Some big shot was coming to see me. A guy that was way above my pay grade gave me some inside dope. That the big shot coming to see me was thinking about starting another department. And she was maybe think about involving me somehow. Needless to say, I was nervous. The reason for her visit was completely different. So I had to pretend I didn't really know that she was there to also give me the once over. She showed up, we did our thing, she thanked me she left. A couple days later my inside guy called me and said she was impressed. That made me feel pretty good. Being able to impress somebody is a common desire. If you see an attractive person across the room, being able to impress them would feel fantastic. If you have a job interview, being able to impress the hiring guy is a good skill to have. If you wanted to be an actor, you would need to impress the guy doing the choosing. Even if you wanted to cook a meal for your friends, being able to impress them with your skills is a very nice feeling. When Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker fought with light sabers the first time, that's exactly what Vader said: "Impressive." Clearly, being able to impress people would help you in pretty much ANY situation. Sure, you could learn certain skills to impress people. Cooking skills, acting skills, light saber dueling skills. But those are pretty contextual. If you walked up to a stranger and told them you could make the perfect souffle, they might be impressed, they might not be. To impress people in social settings, particularly strangers, would be a VERY nice skill to have. It would increase your social proof. It would increase your authority. It would significantly expand your social network. All things that would make you much more attractive. Luckily, there is a VERY SIMPLE way to do this. When most people think about impressing others, we think about impressing THEM with the ideas in OUR brains. This is the absolute HARDEST way to do that. The easiest way is to impress them with how well we can find interesting ideas in THEIR brain. It turns out that the simplest way to be impressive TO others is to be impressed BY others. Luckily, there is a very simple, step by step, linguistic structure to do EXACTLY that. Learn how, and impressing people EVERYWHERE will be second nature.

  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct08Post.mp4 In sales, they have an idea of a laydown. This is somebody who stumbles into your shop. You give them the memorized sales pitch, and they don't object at all. They look at you and say, "Wow, that's EXACTLY what I was looking for!" And then you give them the price. And they say, "Wow, that's way cheaper than I thought!" They buy whatever you are selling, and everybody lives happily ever after. This, however, is very, very rare. It's about as rare as walking up to a gorgeous girl and saying: "Hey, you don't know me, but wanna have sex?" And her thinking about it and saying: "Sure, why not? Let's go to my place!" This happens to be the most common male sex fantasy. And the basic plot of every "bang bus" porn movie. Guys driving down the street in a creepy van, pulling up to a super hot girl wearing very revealing clothing and asking her to come on in the van. "Sure, I was hoping to be asked to join a gang bang!" Of course, there is fantasy, and there is reality. The reality is you may talk to 50 girls, or guys, and get 2-3 phone numbers. And those may even be given to politely get rid of you. If you listen to any hiring sales pitch, every sales job sounds like easy money. All you have to do is memorize a pitch, and the customers will LOVE to buy. But just like extremely unrealistic sex fantasies, the reality is much different. The reality is you MAY get one laydown every few months. Not enough to even pay ONE month's rent. At same time, a memorized pitch SOUNDS like a good idea. If you can somehow come up with a really good memorized pitch, it's easy, once you memorize it. This idea is based on not having a regular, back and forth conversation. Having back and forth conversations with strangers is not something most people are comfortable doing. ESPECIALLY if the purpose of the conversation is to get something from them. Like a sale, or a number, or even them to agree to your idea. But this is ONLY uncomfortable from the position of the ASKER. If you are ultimately going to ASK THEM something, you know it. They know it. They can feel it. The solution? Don't ask. Instead, build up their desire. Turns out this is VERY EASY. It's kind of goofy at first, but when you get the hang of it, you'll be blown away by how simple it is. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/get-anybody/

  22. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct07Post.mp4 A long time ago I had to teach a bunch of kids some magic tricks. It was for this summer program. Me and another lady had to come up with a bunch of magic tricks to teach two summer school classes. One group was 4-5 years old, the other was 6-7. To make things worse, they didn't want to spend a lot of money. So we couldn't buy tricks. Luckily, we found a bunch of "self working" card tricks. Tricks that require you stack the deck before hand. With a stacked deck, you can deal them out in a specific way to make the cards come up unexpectedly. This way, the kids didn't need to learn any complicated sleight of hand. Just start with a deck, remember how to deal the cards, and it would work out. The main part was practicing the stories to tell while doing the trick. Turns out this is the main part of many magic tricks. Talking while doing the tricks. Many advanced magic tricks are based on sleight of hand. Of actually doing some very complicated work. To make it much easier, you can tell some stories. The more interesting the story is, the less likely the audience will pay close attention to your hands. Since people LIKE watching magic tricks, they go along with whatever story you are telling. This requires people KNOW that they are seeing a magic trick. For people who like magic, whenever a magician starts to do a trick, and starts into a magician's story, they naturally listen. Or if you are a world famous comedian up on a stage, they'll shut off their brains and listen to you talk. Nearly every other time you are in a conversation with somebody, they WON'T turn off their brain and listen. This is not a comfortable thought, but every time you find yourself in a conversation with somebody, whatever YOU are saying is ALWAYS going to be in competition with the ideas in their brain. Dale Carnegie famously said that everybody is always listening to their favorite radio station, WII-FM. "What's in it for me." So unless you are talking specifically about THEM, (which most people don't) they are going to wait for an opening. Whenever you pause, so they can talk about them. And they are talking about them, that's exactly what YOU will do. This is exactly what we all do. But there is a VERY EASY way to talk about them. And it won't take long to lead them to WHEREVER you want. Using ONLY their ideas. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/get-anybody/

  24. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct06Post.mp4 When I was a kid I got this robot for Christmas. This was WAY back in the day before a lot of electronics started to become commercially available. It ran on batteries and basically just walked. When I was a kid, Japanese monster movies were popular. They had the famous ones, Godzilla, Rodan, etc. But there was one that I particularly liked. As a kid I only knew it as "Giant Robot." The government (or somebody) built this huge robot. But a kid was the first one who activated it. And he could command the robot by talking into his watch. The commands always started with, "Giant Robot..." and then the command. I (and probably every other kid who watched that movie) LOVED to imagine having my own giant robot. Many people are attracted to the idea of hypnosis for two main reasons. One is that we can (allegedly) use hypnosis to get others to do what we want. The other is that we can solve our own problems with hypnosis. Most people imagine being able to use hypnosis on others very much like the kid used on Giant Robot. To simply give them commands and watch them obey. This is how it is used in the movies. Say the magic phrase, snap your fingers and BOOM, they're in a trance. If it were only so easy! But movie hypnosis is not like real hypnosis. Real hypnosis DOES work. But it's a bit more complicated than using a magic word or phrase. If humans could be so easily controlled, all the women would be pregnant, and all the men would be broke. Luckily, this is NOT the case. But there are plenty of ways to create the same outcome. Of getting the other person to do whatever you want. It's only a little bit more complicated than in the movie. It requires first talking to them, and asking them some questions. Very easy to answer questions. They aren't quite questions that you can memorize. You WILL have to do some thinking. But once you figure it out, it's very easy to ask anybody the right questions in the right order. Each one you ask, they'll easily answer. Because every time they answer, they'll feel better. And after only a few questions, they WILL be very eager to do whatever it is you want them to. Even better is they'll truly believe it was THEIR idea.

  26. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct05Post.mp4 If you were walking down the street, and somebody punched you in the face, that would suck. But you would also plenty of ways to get back. Most people who saw it would agree that it sucks. And plenty of times when this happens, people step in. This is the kind of unwritten rules of a civil society. You can't walk around punching people. So when most people see somebody do this, they don't like it. Even if they didn't step in, if you called the cops, plenty of people would be more than willing to help out. Even in bars or sporting events, when alcohol is involved and people are heated, the "no fighting" rule is generally in place. If two guys are in each others' face screaming, their buddies would watch. Both because that's kind of entertaining. But also to step in just in case they cross over from verbal attacks to physical attacks. If a punch or two is thrown, most people would grab their buddies and pull them back. Getting into a fight may feel good in the moment, but the ramifications can be ruinous. If one of the fighter's has a particularly good lawyer, the other guy can be financially destroyed. All these ideas are built in to society and built in to our brains. To keep random violence from breaking out. But plenty of times people can mess with your verbally. And it can be equally devastating. Especially if it happens in front of others. Many people are very skilled in covert insults. The art of putting people down while looking clever at the same time. Structurally, it's very much like the school yard bully. The bully doesn't have a lot of confidence. The only way he can feel better is by putting others down. This happens socially all the time. Among friends, this is very playful and necessary. But when somebody is only pretending to be your friend, it can be devastating. When you're in a meeting a work, and somebody says something that doesn't quite feel right. Like they just put you down in front of others. You know it, they know it, but you feel utterly defenseless. Sometimes you can TRY to respond, but do so less can confidently, it makes you look even worse. Some people are just natural bullies. They are naturally gifted in the art in the covert put down. Luckily there is a way to respond. To defend yourself. Or to utterly obliterate them.

  28. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct04Post.mp4 The stone age ended and the bronze age started when ancient humans figured out how to use metal. Most historians figured it was by accident. Most groundbreaking discoveries are by accident. Most of the tech inventions of the 70's were unexpected byproducts of the space race in the late 60's. Bronze and other metals exist as ore. Mixed in with rocks. They suspect that somebody had a fire, like they normally did. And they found that part the rock melted out when it got hot. And reformed. And the reformed metal was pretty hard. Up to that point in human history, if they wanted a sharp blade, it would take a LOT of time. They had to find the right kind of rock. And spend a few days sharpening it. And even then it was only partially effective. You would have to tie it to a stick to make a weapon. But once they figured out how to find this ore that they could melt into weapons and tools, it changed everything. Later, they figured out how to mix different kinds of metal to make even STRONGER metal. This first discovery, or first few, were pretty much random accidents. But then this led to a "meta" discovery. If rocks can be used in ways nobody ever expected, what kinds of other things can be used in ways nobody ever expected? This led to random experiments to just to see what might happen. Most of these were utter failures. Even Isaac Newton liked the idea of alchemy. The idea of turning dirt into gold. But the IDEA of alchemy later turned into chemistry. Of mixing stuff together, in hopes of finding out what might happen. There is a common root in both words. Chem. If thousands of people are trying random things, you only need a few advancements each generation to keep the creativity party going. Writing is another "meta" discovery. Writing allowed the people at the end of the dark ages to read and understand what the ancient Greeks had already discovered. Discoveries, both planned and accidental, both meta and non-meta, have propelled humans from the stone age to today. What idea has NOT been present during all this? What mindset will absolutely KEEP YOU from taking part in this non stop party of human creativity? The idea that somebody ELSE is supposed to take care of you. The idea that somebody ELSE is supposed to do your thinking for you. The idea that somebody ELSE is supposed to tell you what you do. Use your brain, unlock your potential, and join the party.
