  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug03Post.mp4 A couple decades ago, the U.S. congress was talking about porn. This was long before the internet. They had a problem of defining porn. When you create and pass a law, you have to be pretty precise. If you aren't it can lead to serious trouble. For example, in one of the many insurance lawsuits that came after 911, one of the key elements was hinged on an interpretation. The point of contention was when both of the twin towers fell, was that "one" event, or "two" events. The insurance companies, of course, wanted to describe it as "one" event. The insured wanted it described as "two" events. Even Bill Clinton was able to weasel out of being on the spot by questioning the meaning of the word, "is." Out of context, this sounds ridiculous. But within the context of the discussion, it really was a legitimate question. Anyhow, back to the porn. They were struggling to "define" what porn is. And one congressman famously said: "I know it when I see it." This is true. Most of us would know porn when we saw it. Many nouns are like this. We know them when we see them. And most of the time, this is OK. But sometimes it's not. When, specifically, is it not? When we want to become MORE of this "non-definable" thing. When we want to become MORE like the thing that "we know when we see it." One of these is the idea of "frame." We KNOW a strong framed person when we see one. We even KNOW we've lost a frame battle. We want the other person to do something, and they don't want to do it, and that's that. Clearly, having a strong frame is much better than having a weak frame. In fact, it's hard to imagine any scenario when having a weak frame would be better. But the question is HOW can you build a strong frame? Building muscles is easy. Well not easy, but it's not confusing how to do it. Improving your guitar playing skills is "easy." You know what to do to improve. You know how to measure you're improvement. This can lead many to believe that frame strength is something mysterious, or genetic. That it's just like physical appearance. Some people are attractive, some people aren't. Some people have strong frames, some don't. The first one is true. But the second one is not only FALSE, but a strong enough frame will EASILY overcome the first. For guys, having a strong frame is MUCH better than having looks. Of course, it doesn't SEEM that way. But that's only because very FEW men have strong frames. So within the context of weak framed males, looks really ARE everything. Which means if you CAN manage to build up your frame, you can CLEAN UP. You can BE the guy who really PROVES that looks don't matter. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/anxiety-killer/

  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug02Post.mp4 Most of "game" is reversed engineered from folks who are naturally successful. Most of sales is reversed engineered from folks who are naturally successful. This idea, of copying what works, is as old as time. The first guy who invented a spear probably copied from somewhere else. Maybe he was chasing some deer, the deer tripped and accidentally impaled himself on a tree branch. Then the cave guy thought: "Damn! Why didn't I think of that!" He tried it, and it worked. Everybody else copied him. Then one guy thought about combining a rock with a stick, and made the first "blade on a stick." Everybody copied that, and here we are a million years later. So it IS a very, very good strategy to copy what others are doing that works. But when it comes to game and sales, it's a lot more than what we see. In fact, a "truism" from an old school economist from the 1800's (Bastiat if you're interested) is very, very helpful: It's not what you see, it's what you don't see. Of course, he was talking about economics. And he was talking about long chains of invisible cause-effect. X happens, which causes Y to happen, which causes Z to happen, but only under certain circumstances. But all we see is the X and then, sometimes, a little bit later Z. You need to see all the stuff going on the middle to TRULY understand. And when it comes to game, and to a larger extent all sales and persuasion, what you DON'T see is much, much more important. This is something a lot of people don't like to even think about. Because what you DON'T see is a function if inner game. The stuff few people think about, for ANY reason. Because inner game is all about confidence, or lack of confidence. Beliefs, deep feelings of inadequacy, all the deep subconscious things running in the background that we never even notice. This is what Jung was getting at when he talked about making the unconscious conscious. That unless we make the unconscious conscious, it will run our lives, and we will call it fate. This is externalizing in a nutshell. We try to get an outcome, and we fail. We blame things OUTSIDE of us. The world, the gods, fate. But the things driving our behaviors are INSIDE us. All the things that we might describe as INNER GAME. Understand this part of you, understand EVERYTHING. Instead of copying a lot of outer game techniques, and trying to come up with a huge memorized checklist, solving inner game is MUCH EASIER. Re-calibrate your inner game, and all outer game, in ALL situations will become natural, automatic, and much more effective. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/anxiety-killer/

  8. Hey FirstHelix, George is unavailable but I'll be glad to address these points. Subliminals come at a length of 1 hour and that is the recommended usage length. Sample Subliminals are only samples unless you love them so much you plan on using these in the long run. The products on the website contain 'subliminal themes'. If you're creative enough you can create your own custom theme(s).
  9. As you know, there are an infinite number of subliminals available. The truth is the mind can only hold 7 plus/minus 2 ideas at a time. Focus on 7 plus/minus 2 ideas until you reach Unconscious competence and then try something new if you want.
  10. Mind Persuasion doesn't supply Perfect Driver Hypnosis but it's highly recommended trying any Learning Hypnosis/Subliminal and going from there.
  11. Where can I access or purchase the perfect driver subliminal?
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug01Post.mp4 I used to have this boss that everybody hated. She was the owner of the small company, one she inherited. I'd only worked there a year, but even in that time the business had shrunk. I don't know what the deal was between her and the previous partner, but she didn't have much of a clue about business, or general life in general. She'd make really bad decisions, and get angry if people would try and explain to her why they were bad decisions that would cost EVERYBODY money. For example, she had a rule that we had to ALWAYS upsell the customers. Which we never did, since the stuff she wanted us to upsell was utter crap. And we all knew that if we tried to upsell customers, even REPEAT customers, they would STOP being customers. Even then, when she found out we were not upselling, she'd get angry. One time I ALMOST lost it with her. Like scream out loud lost it. But I bit my tongue. I was working a project that had a very tight deadline. But I was using the main office computer. (This was over 10 years ago). I was using both Excel and Word, and a LOT of data. But she interrupted me, wanting to do something else WHILE I was doing what I was doing. She wanted to burn a bunch of CDs or something. She said it wasn't a big deal, since it would work in the "background." I tried to explain that "in the background" meant we had to SHARE the processor. Which would make my task take much longer. But she wouldn't have it. Every time I'd try to do a hefty calculation, my spreadsheet would freeze. But because she couldn't see her process, she thought it didn't have any impact on the stuff I was doing. Worst part was I had to sit RIGHT NEXT to her while my task, which should have only taken 20 minutes, took nearly two hours. When bosses don't understand what their employees go through, it can create some office turmoil. When bosses aren't driven by customers, but their own ego, it can create office turmoil. When you're trying to do something on your PC, but it keeps freezing, because there's a CRAPTON of stuff going on in the background, it can create turmoil. But this same CRAP happens inside your brain. You see something you'd like. Part of you wants to go and get it. Part if you is afraid to. Those two parts start an argument. In the BACKGROUND of your mind. So, what does this do to your PERFORMANCE? It FREEZES. Just like my spreadsheet. But if you clean house, get rid of all the horrible, second guessing bosses that live in your subconscious, and all the sticky BLOATWARE that exits in your brain, EVERYTHING will improve. Your performance. Your mental speeds. Your linguistic and perceptual acuity. Your ability to REALLY understand what other people are saying and respond accordingly. It's like getting a brand new brain! Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/anxiety-killer/

  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July31Post.mp4 Externalizing is a useful instinct. To blame things outside of ourselves for our failures. We can do an imaginary split test and see why. Imagine two hunters, going after two animals. Two different valleys, but otherwise the same. They both throw their spears and they both miss. The guy WITHOUT the externalizing instinct has a very OBJECTIVE description of what just happened. He realizes his spear throwing abilities are not what they could be. Sure, he'll still go after that animal. But he'll do so with the realization that he needs to work on his skills. Now imagine the second guy. WITH the externalizing instinct. The one that IMMEDIATELY blames things outside himself for "his" failures. He throws and spear, and misses. But he gets ANGRY not at himself, at that animal. That ANGER makes him try again a little bit QUICKER. With a little bit more motivation, fueled by that anger. Over a few hundred generations, people with the externalizing instinct would tend to survive better. So here, we are, a few million years later. We STILL have that same instinct. Like many of our other instincts they CAN mess us up today. Like hunger. If your only criteria for food was that it tasted good, you'd be in bad shape. But you know you've successfully managed your hunger instinct many times before. You've successfully managed plenty other instincts before. This is the prime skills of an enlightened human. To NOT be driven mindlessly by instincts. To make rational choices. This externalizing instinct is no different. But this can present itself in insidious ways. Especially when combined with FALSE ideas we picked up when we were young. This is what drives MOST limiting beliefs. We all have plenty of memories of trying to express ourselves, and getting shut down. This creates some very POWERFUL limiting beliefs. We try to express ourselves, and we fail. Then we come up with an externalized reason. Even worse is we find plenty of others with those SAME externalized reasons. This creates social proof. If our social group is large enough (social media, etc.) they're be a few AUTHORITY figures. Now we've got social proof, authority, false beliefs from childhood AND the externalizing instinct. Unless you bring all these ideas up to the conscious level, and dismantle them, these can keep you trapped. Inside a cage of your own making. Or you can get to work. And take apart this cage. And live your life the way you want. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/anxiety-killer/

  16. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July30Post.mp4 A common piece of advice is to leave everything on the field. If you are playing in a championship game, this is good advice. But sometimes, it's pretty bad advice. More so in some sports than others. Maybe in football, where each game is pretty important. And you've got a week in between games. But for sports like baseball, if you "left everything on the field" every single game, you'd risk injury. The COSTS (potential injury) wouldn't be worth the benefits, of MAYBE eking out a win when you might have otherwise lost. But for many things, this idea of leaving EVERYTHING on the field is HORRIBLE advice. In fact, the opposite is usually much, much better advice. For example, suppose you wanted to learn how to play the piano, and you were starting from scratch. Suppose that you fully understood, and accepted, it would take a year or more of daily consistent practice. Once you have the desire, and you accept what is going to cost, the next step is to figure out HOW you want to practice. If you practiced until you couldn't move your fingers any more, this would be very much like "leaving everything on the field." This would slowly create an association in your mind of: "Practicing the piano = pain and exhaustion" Which would be likely to make you quit. On the other hand, suppose you went much, much slower. So you practiced for maybe 10 minutes every day. So you still enjoyed playing when you STOPPED practicing. You left a lot ON the field. This would slowly build up a much different association: "Practicing the piano = fun" This would be much more likely to shift your thinking. From, "I want to practice the piano until I'm a skilled piano player." To, "My hobby is playing the piano, which I enjoy very much." This creates a very POWERFUL mind shift. From "practice" which is generally a means to an end. To "hobby" which is an end until itself. And much more sustainable. This is a fantastic model to apply to social skills. Most have the "practice until I'm good enough" model. But consider shifting into engaging socially as a HOBBY. This requires you force yourself to specifically NOT leave everything on the field. Leave when you are still having a good time. When the people you are interacting with a still having a good time. This "end on a high note" strategy will make you remember EVERY social interaction fondly. But it will also do something MUCH more powerful. Once you slowly create the "social interactions are fun" memory, your brain will ALWAYS be thinking about how to do better NEXT TIME. Since social instincts are a very POWERFUL driving force. This is something you'll understand once you slowly recalibrate how you feel about them. So any anxiety you may feel now will soon be part of your history.

  18. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July29Post.mp4 There are a lot of sayings in the self development area that are kind of true. But there are also some that are dangerous. One of them is about fear. "Do the thing you fear, and the death of fear is certain." This CAN be helpful if it gives you the motivation to move forward. But it's also a bit too vague. From a purely biological point of view, you don't really "kill" fear when you "do the thing you fear." You do something that's scary. This creates a lot of adrenaline. That adrenaline CAN be a good feeling. But ONLY if you succeed. The adrenaline response fuels the fight of flight response. Fighting or running away takes a long time. So any time we do something that SEEMS scary, our biology is going to respond as if it IS scary. And if the length of the scary thing is short, AND we are successful, then we'll get a positive adrenaline rush. Jumping out of an airplane, for example. The fear is REAL. The adrenaline that comes from jumping is VERY STRONG. But the time it takes to reach "terminal velocity" when you STOP accelerating, is very short. So you experience a kind of "floating" sensation while that adrenaline is still flowing. This is the basic "thrill seeker" high. A DRUG. The adrenaline response that comes EVERY SINGLE TIME. Or consider something that's only dangerous from an "imagination" level. Public speaking. There is ZERO danger. But because it feels dangerous, your ancient instincts respond as if it IS dangerous. So when you give a decent speech, get some genuine applause, that FEELS fantastic. But this fantastic feeling only comes if you TAKE ACTION and that action is SUCCESSFUL. This doesn't work very well in social situations. At least not as binary as jumping out of airplanes or giving speeches. Even if you give a lousy speech at a friendly place, you'll still get that adrenaline rush. That rush that comes from POWERING through the fears. But when you walk up and talk to somebody, it's a different animal. It's NOT just a matter of turning off your brain and getting it done. You NEED your brain. You need to listen and respond appropriately. This is when the "feel the fear and do it anyway" idea is LOUSY advice. If you're "feeling the fear" you won't come across as confident and relaxed. Being confident and relaxes is IDEAL in social situations. A better way would be to KILL the fear before you even start. So you FEEL confident, relaxed. Where you'll be the most effective, conversationally. How do you do that? Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/anxiety-killer/

  20. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July28Post.mp4 What does humor and hypnosis have in common? A very similar linguistic structure. Most people never think much about language. We learn it, we use it and that's that. But studying the structure of language can give you a huge advantage. One, because the structure of language IS the structure of thought. When you speak not only articulately but entertainingly, people will make a LOT of assumptions about you. Most of them subconscious. They'll assume, subconsciously, that your brain is as interesting as your language. And having an interesting brain will open a lot of doors. Doors into other people's minds, their thoughts, their dreams, and their futures. All brains have an attention span. Kind of like Lucy and Ethel while they were working for the chocolate factory. If you have no idea what that means, I Love Lucy was a TV show way back in the fifties. And one of the episodes is one of the BEST episodes of TV History, according to TV guide. Once upon a time there was no streaming movies, no Internet, only TV. And TV Guide was THE authority on all things TV. Anyhow, Lucy and Ethel found themselves working on a chocolate candy production line. The chocolate would go by slowly, and they'd have to take them off, quickly wrap them, and then put them back. If they went unwrapped, they'd both get in big trouble. Of course the chocolates started off slowly. Then it kept getting faster and faster. Pretty soon they were shoving the chocolates in their mouths to keep from getting into trouble. This is like most people's brains. People talk, and we see a kind of stream of ideas flowing by. Most people talk about pretty simple, mostly second hand ideas. So not only are they familiar, but they move by pretty slowly. But when you understand the similar structure between hypnosis and humor, you can have a lot of FUN with people. One trick is ambiguity. This is when one thing, a word or a phrase, can mean two different things. For words, this is the source off all playground riddles. Why did the boy study on the airplane? He was in high school. What starts with "e," ends with "e" but only has one letter? An envelope. What did the beach say when the tide came in? Long time no sea. But you can stretch out other ambiguities when speaking longer stories. Like when you use a bunch of pronouns, and it's not clear who they are referring to. Like the other day, I was in the library talking to the librarian and her cute friend. She was telling her how her sister went to see this psychic who had a lot of sexual energy. She was reading her aura and she said that you have a lot of potential sex in your future, but only if you pay attention to this. Then she looked at me and told me about how she started to find evidence of this kind of sexual energy everywhere. Then they both looked at me and smiled. And asked me if I wanted to know more. Of course I said yes. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/humor-brilliance/

  23. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July27Post.mp4 We like people with strong frames. This is as instinctive as liking food that tastes good. We like people who are confident that they can handle things that come up. But unfortunately, there are very few people like this in real life. And the "alpha types" in the movies are almost always incorrectly written. Very serious, never smiling, always scowling, kind of a brooding, loner type. What would a REAL alpha be like? Let's imagine this from an ancient, instinctive perspective. Alpha, of course, is a leader. The guy who figures out what to do. The guy who makes sure EVERYBODY is taken care of. The guy you can approach and ask for help if you need to. The guy who makes sure that the team brings home the food. And that they are all safe. And the alpha is the guy who inspires the tribe. The guy who motivates them to do the scary stuff. Like an ideal football coach. Not mean, not a pushover, but a guy who wants you to win, and wants you to win by stepping up. I had a friend that was a baseball coach. He had a very clever way of testing his players to see if they were in "game mode." For example, if he had a pitcher that was struggling, he'd walk out to the mound. He wanted to test his frame of mind. If he was relaxed and confident, he would pass the test. If was too nervous, too worried to concentrate, he wouldn't pass the test. What was the test? A simple joke. The kind jokes baseball players tell each other when they are relaxed, and clowning. Humor is a very, very versatile tool. He would watch the pitcher's face, and see how he reacted. If there was no reaction, he was too stressed. On the other hand, if he could forget the game just for a second, and laugh, then he was OK. Consider that a fine sense of humor is a very necessary alpha trait. If you take yourself too seriously, it's going to give off weird vibes. A sense of humor can be considered the ULTIMATE alpha trait. Why? Having a SENSE of humor requires very fine emotionally calibrated intelligence. You have to know when to listen to somebody they are being serious. You have to know when their emotions shift, and the right time to deliver a humorous reframe. Even better is if you can experience your own problems and make jokes about them. Both to yourself, and to others. This demonstrates to others that no matter what happens, you won't lose your mental balance. This is a true definition of leadership. By effectively being able to lead yourself, you'll easily be able to lead others. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/humor-brilliance/

  25. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July26Post.mp4 It's very hard for our brains to see structure. Even when it's pointed out, it's easy to forget. Like you might take a class in popular music theory. You might spend a lot of time studying chords and chord progressions. How chord progressions are constructed. What it means to have chord-discord etc. You might spend a lot of time studying what they call the "wheel of fifths." You might even get into the ancient cult of Pythagoras. Who noticed, experimentally, that certain ratios sound very, very nice together. A piece of string, 3x that length, and 5x that length, all vibrating together sound very pleasing. You may even take a deep dive into philosophy, anatomy and biology, and try to understand, "why" some scales make us feel happy, some sad, some other, very specific emotions. You can spend an entire CAREER studying stuff like this. But as soon as your favorite song comes on the radio? You FORGET all about structure, and focus on content. The melody, the lyrics, and things you remember while singing along in your car. It's very HARD to see both structure AND content at the same time. It's easy to lose yourself in the content. It's hard to maintain a detached, objective viewpoint when studying structure. Music structure, story structure, character arc structure. It's very EASY to lose yourself in a song or a book or even a silly TV show. This works with humor just as well. Humor has a structure. One that can be studied, learned, and improved. Consider an old Groucho Marx joke: "Last night I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas, I'll never know!" If you don't know anything about structure, and you hear that joke, you'll laugh. And think the common thought of: "I don't know how people come up with jokes like that." But once you understand the structure of that joke, you'll never think that again. Because YOU will be coming up with jokes like that. Every day if you want. For example, that "elephant in my pajamas" joke is based on something called "Scope Ambiguity." In the first sentence, we assume the modifying phrase, "in my pajamas" is applied to the shooter. But in the second sentence, we find it's applied to the elephant. Once you understand this structure, you can start writing your own. Sure, most of them will suck pretty bad. "Yesterday I had a banana split with my ex girlfriend." "The banana and ice cream were good, but my ex girlfriend wasn't as delicious as I'd hoped." But every once in a while, you'll come up with a pretty good one. Which you can drop in any conversation you want. For example, that silly ex girlfriend joke can be used any time somebody is talking about getting together with their ex. Just this one structure, if you practice a few minutes a day, will turn YOUR brain into a comedy goldmine. How many structures are there? Enough to keep you busy for a long, long time. And to give enough material to NEVER run out. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/humor-brilliance/
  26. Behind The Veil of Power: https://mindpersuasion.com/behind-the-veil-of-power/ https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July26Loop.mp4
  27. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July25Post.mp4 What's the difference between hypnosis and humor? Timing. The linguistic structures are the same. Ambiguities, reframing. You can use ambiguities to fade somebody's brain while telling them a bunch of somewhat disconnected stories. Ambiguities on the sentence level. Ambiguities on the structural level. You have three or four stories on the same kind of theme. Like overcoming some kind of social anxiety. You tell four stories all about people who overcame some kind of social anxiety. But by the time you get to the middle story, their brains are so utterly confused, they just give up. Especially when you use a deeply embedded quotes pattern. The first story is about a you talking to a guy. The second story is a story told to you buy that guy. Then in that second story, another guy is talking to another guy. By the time you get to the middle, nobody, except for you, has any clue what is going on. So in the middle story, with one ambiguous guy talking to another ambiguous guy, you quote one of the guys. And then YOU say something like this: And then he looked at him and said: And YOU tell the person you are talking to in real life whatever you want to say. Their brains will be so faded, you can look DIRECTLY at them, give them a ton of DIRECT commands, and they'll just nod. Um... uh... yeah... OK... Of course, later, when you finish all the loops, they'll forget ALL ABOUT that middle part. But those commands will be INSIDE their brain. This is essentially how covert hypnosis is used in therapy. Fade their brain, drop in a bunch of commands, and everybody lives happily ever after. All with TONS of layered ambiguity. Which story you are telling, who's saying what to whom, and sentence level ambiguities like "lack of referential index." The lack of referential index is a FANTASTIC party trick. You introduce a few people. Then later you refer to those same people but only with pronouns. So nobody knows WHO you are referring to. And if you set up the people, and what they are doing correctly and THEN refer to them with pronouns, you can use the quotes pattern to put some CRAZY things in the middle. For example: The other day I met this crazy girl at this bar downtown. She and her two friends were telling me about this bachelor party one of her friends worked at, lots of sexy strippers and customers. Then she looked and me and told me how she would always look directly at people and say: "You have no idea how much CRAZY SEX we are going to have!" "You have no idea of the secret sex tricks I know that can give you a four hour orgasm!" "Do you believe that?" Because you set it up with so many "interesting" people, and surrounded that middle part about sex with a whole slew of confusing pronouns, whoever you say this to will have a happily spinning brain. That's the COOL thing about all these linguistic patterns. You can put them together in some very clever ways. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/humor-brilliance/
