  1. A very common, and very dangerous idea is that you need money to get girls. It's common because like most beliefs, it's easy to find proof. This is a function of confirmation bias. On the other hand, if you purposely tried to find evidence of guys with NO money who could easily get girls, you'd find it. One of the reasons this idea, that you need money to get girls, is dangerous is it can serve as a very HANDY excuse to stay on the sidelines. There you are, looking out across the room. You see TONS of sexy girls. But then that belief pops into your head. That you need money to get girls. And since you don't have any money, you stay on the sidelines. This is the PERFECT cover for the real reason. Which is that talking to girls causes a ton of anxiety in most NORMAL people. But most normal people also don't like to admit they are scared of doing SEEMINGLY normal things. Like talking to cute girls. Luckily, we can kill both false beliefs at once. First is to understand that money is only a EXTERNAL SIGNAL of something deeper. Or it least it CAN be. That something deeper is what women are REALLY attracted to. And that is raw ambition. The desire to BECOME something better than you are. Now, for most of history, when you combine this raw ambition with half a brain, you get a guy who gets out there and gets stuff done. This USUALLY involves making money somehow. That money, and all the signs of money, are really EXTERNAL pieces of evidence of a deeper characteristic. It's also why girls get together with guys who HAVE money, but get bored. Because in today's corrupt clown show economy, it's easy to make money WITHOUT having a sense of "old school" ambition. That's actually GOOD NEWS. Because you can cultivate that old school ambition. This requires you have a PLAN for your life. A REAL PLAN. Not a bunch of things you wish or hope will happen. Having a REAL PLAN based on REAL AMBITION will trigger those ancient desire instincts. But you have to be willing to EXPRESS that ambition. This is EASY. But it requires you understand part two of this strategy. That you don't talk to girls ONLY to get their number. And you don't ONLY talk to cute girls. NOR do you ONLY talk to girls. You talk to EVERYBODY. Practice chit chat. Eventually somebody will ask what you do. And no matter WHAT your job is, even if you don't have a job, when you express your ambition correctly, they will remember you. Why? Because so few people HAVE ambition today. This will help you cultivate and develop a REAL reputation. Which will make you INSANELY attractive. To EVERYBODY. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/girls-like-you/
  2. Most people absolutely hate getting fat. Nobody ever tries to get fat. Except maybe a few actors who need to get into character. Once, Milton Erickon had a patient who was convinced she couldn't change her weight. Milton told her to purposely gain weight. She thought he was crazy, but she did any way. Through his hypnotic genius, he convinced her that losing weight wasn't really that much different than gaining weight. This, of course, isn't true for most people. But Milton recognized her weight problem was tied to feeling an absolute lack of control over ANY part of her body. For that particular patient, he recognized that once she proved to herself that she could gain weight on purpose, losing weight on purpose would be the next logical step. This was one of the reasons why Erickson was such a genius. He could talk to somebody and know the PRECISE detail of their unique problem. And give them a quick, custom made solution, all wrapped up in a messed up story. But when you think about gaining and losing weight in general, it's really a BEAUTIFUL system. It's kind of hard to see that now, but think about ancient humans. Whenever we saw food, we ate as much as we could. And our bodies would naturally store the extra energy. The more energy we had stored in the tank, the longer we could go without needing to fill up again. This is very much like a family on a long road trip. The bigger the tank, the more energy they can store. Whenever they see a gas station, they stop and fill up. In our natural, ancient habitat, adding to our energy stores is the same as spending from our energy stores. We GAIN fat just as easily as we BURN fat. Of course, this is based on a lot of other circumstances that aren't very common today. The food was much more natural. And we were much more active. But this metaphor, of finding, storing and using energy, can be found everywhere. The entire EXPLOSION in population after the Industrial Revolution was MAINLY because we finally figured out HOW to use fossil fuels. Which represented a MASSIVE AMOUNT of energy. Another HUGE discovery in human history was the use of fire. Another way to get MASSIVE energy out of wood and other burnable material. But the most METAPHYSICAL form of energy is money. You can make, it you can store it, you can spend it. The more you have, the longer you can go without needing more. This is the main DRIVING FORCE behind all human inventions. The more you get in THAT game, the more you can fulfil your human purpose. Get Started: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/
  3. Natural selection is a very powerful idea. It's similar to split testing. If you tried out different ad campaigns in different zip codes, for example. Suppose you had eight different zip codes. And you had eight slightly different adverts for each zip code. You could easily see which ad was best, based on the sales you got. You wouldn't even need to know much about psychology. Once you found the best one, out of the eight, you could just make variations on that one. Or imagine if you opened a sandwich shop. You could spend tons of money on market research. Hire an expensive consulting firm to go door to door and see which kind of sandwiches people eat. Or you could just sell a bunch of different sandwiches, and see which ones sold the most. Keep selling more of those. Keep selling less of the others. When this happens in nature, it's spontaneous and organic. That's why it's called "natural selection." But you'll see this same strategy EVERYWHERE. Because it's so effective. Consider a venture capitalist. He's got a couple hundred million to invest. Does he need to be able to understand the deep undercurrents of the economy, or the future political winds? Not really. He just needs to invest a couple million in twenty or thirty different companies. Thirty companies times two million is sixty million dollars. If ONE company hits it big, and he sells it for 100 million (which is VERY common) he makes his money back. This is not only a very effective strategy, but it's also applicable in pretty much anywhere you want. Take a guy who wants to become more seductive. So long as he's willing to get out there and apply this strategy, he'll keep getting better. How, specifically does he apply it? The same way as the advertising campaign. Try a bunch of DIFFERENT strategies and choose the one that works best. Then try another set of winning strategies, which are variations on the previous winning strategy. The more you apply this strategy, the better you get. It also works in sales. And in business. It is also how we NATURALLY learn. The more we get POSITIVE feedback, the more we'll REMEMBER what worked. This is the natural way we humans develop better and better skills. When you apply this to making money, it's a perfect match. Whatever your job is, whatever job you want, whatever business you want to start, do SOMETHING. Every time you do SOMETHING, you'll get valuable feedback. And if you point your successive attempts toward more money, you'll GET more money. But only if you get rid of limiting money beliefs. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/
  4. Everybody loves buying stuff. Especially something you've wanted for a while. When I got my first job in high school, I wanted to build a stereo system. So each paycheck I bought one more component. (This was WAY back in the day before MP3 players.) Amp/tuner, turntable, cassette deck, equalizer, big speakers. Each Friday I looked forward to getting my check, depositing it and going to the stereo store. And luckily enough, my first job was a lot of fun. Me and a bunch of other high school and college kids working at a movie theater. All the bosses were in college, everybody else was in high school or college. The big boss was never around. So it was essentially a non-stop party. Making money was fun, and spending money was fun. This is how it CAN be. It's how it SHOULD be. Every time you make money, you are combining your unique skills and experiences in a way that other people appreciate. You do something, and other people pay you. They like GIVING you the money, because they like what you GAVE them in exchange. This is how societies have functioned ever since they invented agriculture. This is WHY people gravitate to large cities. For example, Henry Ford left the farm and went to the city because living on the farm was so BORING. By the time he was a young adult, he'd already applied his skills as much as he could. Taking apart people's watches and putting them back together. Big cities have more people. More people have more needs. More needs require more skills to satisfy those needs. Satisfying more needs creates more economic activity. Which attracts more people. Of course, this is nice in theory. Reality is much different. Because for many people, making money is difficult. Just thinking about it creates a TON of anxiety. Because making money also comes with a ton of limiting beliefs. And it turns out that negative money beliefs aren't so simple. They are passed down subconsciously and organically. Often for generations. But with a little mental work, you can get rid of them. And once you eliminate negative money beliefs, making money will be the way it should be. An essential function of human nature. The more you express your natural skills and gifts, the more money you'll make. And the more people will appreciate your contributions.

  5. I read an interesting article the other day. About strange ways to make money. For example, you can make $400 a month selling plasma. Or, if you qualify, (which is hard according to the article) you can make a few grand a month selling your sperm. Another goofy article talked about a woman who makes $40K a year being a professional "cuddler." Kind of a strange job, but it doesn't seem to take much. Except being able to cuddle strangers all day. If you look, you can find plenty of ways to make money. These are just a couple strange ideas that I noticed recently. But you won't find them if you don't look. Unfortunately, having negative money beliefs will keep you from seeing what is out there. This comes across via cognitive dissonance. Our subconscious won't let us notice something that contradicts our beliefs about ourselves. The most common limiting belief about money is a feeling of unworthiness. This is not something that we can consciously recognize. In fact, quite the opposite. We ONLY do things that are inside our comfort zone. And our comfort zone is defined but what we feel worthy doing. We don't feel worthy outside of our comfort zone. But even ADMITTING that we feel unworthy is nearly impossible. Our subconscious does plenty of mental gymnastics to keep us safe. But if you SLIGHTLY decrease your negative beliefs, and SLIGHTLY increase your feeling of worthiness, you will SLIGHTLY expand your comfort zone. It's KIND OF like the red car effect, but much more complicated. You don't notice any red cars until you buy one. Then you buy one and you see them everywhere. The same thing happens when you SLOWLY expand you comfort zone. You'll slowly see more money OPPORTUNITIES. Since these are opportunities, and not sacks of cash laying there in plain sight, you'll need to INTERACT with them. Sometimes this might mean talking to people whom you don't normally talk to. Or go places where you don't normally go. Or read goofy articles about selling plasma that you don't normally read. And you might even go to one of those plasma places. And guess who you'd meet? Other people who are ACTIVELY seeking interesting ways to make money. And who knows where that might lead? One thing that WON'T work is waiting around for a money, or money opportunities, to land in your lap. They're out there. But you have to look. And to see them, you need to remove your money-blinders. The limiting beliefs that ONLY allow you to see things your subconscious thinks you are worthy of. Start removing your money beliefs, and you'll see a whole new world out there.

  6. I read a fascinating article by an economist. It was about how he watched his kids and their friends after they'd been trick or treating. There were about seven or eight of them. They'd just finished, and had chosen his house for the after party. Meaning they were going to dump out all their candy, count their loot, and make whatever trades they wanted. So they started trading the candy they HAD for the candy they wanted. But then something interesting happened. Without being told, these kids started using an intermediary "placeholder." They traded something they had for this intermediary placeholder. Then they would use this intermediary placeholder to trade for what they wanted. The intermediary placeholder they were using were Tootsie Rolls. The reason we humans use intermediary placeholders is something economists call the "coincidence of wants." If have something, and you want something else, this CAN present a problem. You have to find somebody that not only HAS what you want, but also WANTS what you have. Like if you were a kid on playground with a bag of chips. You'd have to wander around until you found something some other kid had, that you wanted MORE than the chips. But it would also require that whatever they had, they would want YOUR chips more. You might find another kid with a bag of cookies. And if you wanted the cookies more than the chips, you'd offer a trade. But the other kid would ONLY trade if he wanted the chips MORE than the cookies. Any time you have a bunch of people, a bunch of stuff (or the skills people have) you'll run into this problem. The "coincidence of wants" problem. But as this economist watched these kids, it seems that we humans have an INSTINCTIVE way of deciding what kind of "thing" is acceptable to be used as this intermediary placeholder. The little kids used Tootsie Rolls. Nobody needed to tell them to. They didn't even need to talk about it. They just sort of started using them. Of course, there is another, more common word for this "intermediary placeholder." Money. Or currency. And if you hopped into your time machine, and went back to ANY society in the past, or ANY society in the future, you would find different forms of currency. Once you have enough people with enough skills, and some form of currency, then economic activity will EXPLODE. Everything you need to MAXIMIZE how much money you make is already in your brain. Since they are very essential human instincts. All you need to do is figure out to calibrate these instincts to MAXIMIZE your income. Get Started: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/
  7. I'm always interested in new documentaries. But I saw one the other day that looked interesting at first. But then when I read what it was about, a I gave it a pass. The entire 90 minute documentary was about folks who believe the Earth is really flat. That the "world is round" idea is a huge conspiracy. Now, watching a 5 minute video on that might be interesting. But listening to an hour and a half of flat earth arguments doesn't sound so compelling. There are, however, huge conspiracies. But they are very, very simple. And most wide-spread conspiracies all have ONE common theme. And that is they are something people are WILLING to believe. We humans believe things because we BENEFIT from the belief. Consider PT Barnum's most famous saying. That there is a sucker born every minute. A "sucker" requires two people. The con artist, and the sucker. The con artist must create a believable con. But to be believable, it requires a sucker. And suckers ARE suckers BECAUSE they are willing to believe something that is TOO GOOD to be true. The corollary to the "sucker born every minute" angle is that you CANNOT CON an HONEST MAN. No matter enticing a con is, it won't trick an honest man. What is it about honest people that make them very hard to con? What, exactly, does it mean by "honest." Perhaps they believe in an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. And when the con says you can get something for "free" or without doing any work, they smell a rat. They don't believe you can CHEAT your way to riches. Because they KNOW that all money MUST come from other people. People who pay money voluntarily. And when people pay money voluntarily, they expect something in return. So when the con artist comes around promising any kind of "free money" the "honest man" know's it CAN'T be true. That it's impossible to do "nothing" and expect to sit back and get paid. Because NOBODY in their right mind would pay money and EXPECT nothing in return. This is why most CONS about money REQUIRE two sides. The cons, and the suckers. One of the biggest money CONS is that money is EVIL. It benefits the cons, because once they get plenty of money, and they convince everybody that money is evil, they don't have to worry about competition. But why would people willingly believe that money is evil? Because for most people, making money is scary. Making money is hard work. Willingly believing it is EVIL is an easy OUT. If we believe money is evil, then it absolves us of doing the work to GET MONEY. But if you understand money, and eliminate negative money beliefs, making money will be fun. Sure, it will involve hard work. But it won't be scary. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/
  8. Once upon a time, there was no money. Now there is tons of money. Even in the last few years, there has been a lot of NEW money. Crypto-money. Invented essentially from scratch. Every day in the FOREX markets, there are trillions of dollars traded. Your blood cells go around your body. They pick up energy in the form of food and oxygen. Deliver the energy to the cells that need it. And then they turn around and transport the waste out. Without blood, and the cells within it, you'd be dead. Money serves the same purpose. Goods flow around the world one way. Money flows the other way. They say that as long as goods and money are flowing across borders, there's no reason for war. War only happens once money and goods STOP flowing. The flow of money around the world keeps the world healthy and thriving. As soon as money stops flowing, problems start, and people die. As soon as blood stops flowing, problems start and YOU die. When bears get ready for the winter, they store energy in the form of body fat. When ancient societies got ready for the winter, they stored energy in the from of grain. Now we humans can get ready for ANY span of time when we DON'T want to work by storing energy. This energy, of course, is money. You put a bunch of people together with a bunch of skills, and they'll INVENT a form of money. Sometimes they use cigarettes. Sometimes they use cases of soda. Sometimes they use shells, or salt, or gold or silver. When love to think of ourselves as individuals. But we are also very social animals. With a whole bunch of social instincts. Consider that one our MOST IMPORTANT social instinct is to make stuff. Or help make stuff, and then trade that stuff for money. The more money you get, the more stuff you can get. With everybody making stuff and selling it to each other, the amount of stuff increases. And the amount of money increases. This has been happening ever since they first invented coins, back in a few hundred BC. The amount of stuff has been increasing ever since. The amount of money has been increasing ever since. If aliens were studying humans, they'd see we have two purposes. To make stuff and make money. But since would see us trading stuff for money and money for stuff, they would see MONEY as the energy of earth. This is your destiny. To make money.

  10. There are a lot of over the counter "drugs" that are marketed for weight loss. And when it comes to weight loss, there's really ONE way to do it. You MUST burn more calories than you consume. This means you can either INCREASE the calories you burn, and keep the calories you consume constant. Or DECREASE the calories you consume, and keep the calories you burn constant. Or, of course, any combination. No matter WHAT kind of pills you take for weight loss, they will do one of those two things. Some are stimulants, and they speed up your metabolism. Some are appetite suppressants, and help you consume less. Some do both. But some are very tricky, especially how they are marketed. There was one company that got into trouble a few years back. Their whole angle was the magical sounding, "Lose weight while you sleep." Their particular pills were "precursors." These are building blocks of larger chemicals. The larger chemicals these precursors allegedly made were human growth hormone, or HGH. If you get an injection of REAL HGH, it IS like magic. Increased metabolism, faster healing, etc. A real fountain of youth. But the weight loss pill's angle was you'd take these precursor, they would "link up together" in your blood to build HGH. Then the HGH would do the job of making you lose weight while you slept. As a half baked idea, it DOES sound pretty convincing. But as a fully baked idea, it's not really so great. I would be like dumping all the "precursors" to a building, and waiting for a building to magically appear. Bricks, cement, lumbar, nails, paint etc. If you put all that stuff in a pile and waited, NOTHING would happen. You would need the actual builders to put the stuff together. And the plans, and somebody to PAY them. That's why those "lose weight while you sleep" pills never worked, and the company that was marketing them got in trouble with the FCC. But the idea of precursors IS a good one. Because no matter WHAT you are building, you NEED the smaller components. If you are going to make a sandwich, you need bread and peanut butter (or whatever else). But sandwiches, houses, HGH, these are NON-SENTIENT entities. When it comes to people, we have these programs that are already running. Our instincts are ALWAYS driving us to do things. Eat, sleep, reliever ourselves, get horny, get new stuff. And since we are EXTREMELY SOCIAL creatures, we have TONS of social instincts. That's why we LOVE meeting new people. That's why we LOVE hanging out with friends. And when you can carefully elicit the right social-instinct-precursors in the right order, that will add up to some POWERFUL social desire. And you can stick that desire to anything you want. You, your ideas, your products. Anything. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/deep-mind-persuasion/

  12. Many sales people have a common problem. It's the same problem people have when persuading anybody. If you're a guy, this "problem" comes when asking for the number. Or leaning in for the kiss. Or any type of "close." Closing can be applied to any next step. For example, if you are a salesman, you convert cold leads into warm leads by CLOSING the appointment. Then you hopefully turn warm leads into customers by CLOSING the sale. If you're a guy talking to a girl at a bar, you turn her from a "cold lead" into a "warm lead" by closing for the number. Since this is the MOST difficult part, it gets most of our attention. But in reality it should be the EASIEST part. The most NATURAL part. Think of it this way. If you are a salesperson, the client shouldn't need ANY convincing to buy the product. To them, it should feel just like buying a product on their own. They have a desire, they find the product, the grab it and head toward the register. Closing anxiety only happens when you imagine they need convincing. That they aren't quite ready to buy the product. That they aren't quite ready to give you their number. The paradox is the more worried you are, the less likely it will happen. Anxiety gives off a negative vibe. Negative non-verbal energy. The same kind of negative non-verbal energy that makes cats and dogs sketchy around you. So when you even THINK about building up to the close, you are also building up that negative energy. From the other person's perspective, while you were just chatting them up or explaining the product, you were relaxed. This, paradoxically, is when their interest is highest. The LONGER you worry about closing, the LOWER their buying temperature becomes. To a completely impartial, mind-reading, alien observer, this would seem EXTREMELY strange. There you are, with a HOT PROSPECT in front of you. But BEFORE you decide to close, you TURN DOWN their buying temperature. What's the answer? Forget about closing. Instead, focus on building as much desire as you possibly can. If you are selling anything, the customer will eventually tell you to shut up and sell it to them. If you are chatting up a guy or a girl, they will eventually close you. Because when you build desire the RIGHT WAY, they will feel stronger desire with you than they've ever felt before. And when we humans feel this, we want more. So when you can create this high level of desire in others, they will make it VERY EASY on you. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/deep-mind-persuasion/
  13. Everybody wants more money. Rich people want more money. Poor people want more money. If you have a ghost in your house, the ghost probably wants more money. At the same time, we don't like the idea of other people having more money than us. Especially if we THINK they got it by "cheating." Sniffing out cheaters is an instinct. A very necessary one. Our instincts still believe we are living in ancient hunter-gatherer tribes. That's why it's so hard to lose weight with will power. Our instincts REALLY BELIEVE that we might not get any food in the foreseeable future. Our instincts CAN'T think or plan. They can only COMPELL us. And our food instinct COMPELS us to eat as much as we can whenever there is plenty of food available. How does our cheating instinct work? It's a social instinct that helped bind ancient tribes together. It FORCED everybody to share. One guy got a big kill, he was compelled to share it with everybody. Both because he felt compelled, and because he knew people would be angry if he didn't. This kept tribes tightly organized. Everybody trusted everybody. Everybody worked together to help each other survive. So today, when we see somebody who's super rich, AND it doesn't seem like they "earned" it, it triggers our cheating instinct. But like most of our other instincts, they are what they are. If you want to stay slim and healthy, you MUST be hungry and not eat. If you want to make more money, you MUST ignore the natural anger we feel for rich people who are "lucky." Rich people who show up with the right set of skills, or even looks, that make it EASY for them to make money. Getting angry won't help. It would be like getting angry at your hunger. But that frustration is also an instinct. It's a natural motivator. The frustration makes you ANGRY. And you use that anger to overcome obstacles. What obstacles? The ones between where you are and where you want to be. Most people use their anger ineffectively. They use their anger to try and get OTHER PEOPLE to remove their obstacles. That FEELS GOOD. Especially when politicians make promises that SOUND like that. "Vote for me and I'll fix your problems." That, unfortunately, is the one OLDEST lies of organized society. Don't fall for it. The ONLY PERSON who can remove the obstacles between where you are and where you want to be is YOU. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/

  18. A not uncommon movie them is one event, but that is seen from different perspectives. Perhaps the most popular is the Japanese movie, Yojimbo. About a single event, but was seen completely different from different viewpoints. Since we all have our subjective views, it’s very difficult to ever see anything from a truly objective perspective. Being able to switch between objective view and subjective view is a fantastic skill. Even doing this after the fact is helpful, albeit rare. Most people CAN’T or WON’T do this. For example, if something happens that didn’t go your way, a great way to improve is to examine it after the fact. To force your brain to see things from different perspectives. The reason this is so difficult is it’s hard to let go, even temporarily, of our ego. One way to think of our ego is as a very powerful social instinct that always holds up the idea of self as being the most important thing. Those that didn’t have a strong “ego instinct” didn’t have a high likelihood of surviving in a hunter-gatherer environment. But if you CAN temporarily turn off your ego, it allows for some very POWERFUL inter-personal techniques. Just shutting off your ego temporarily, and seeing things from the other person’s perspective will be very helpful. Nobody does ANYTHING unless it’s in their own interests. But this is hard to see with everybody having their ego always on full throttle. When you turn off your ego, and expand THEIR self-interests, they’ll start to be attracted to everything about you. If you are selling things, it will be much easier. If you are simply talking to people, you’ll be much more attractive. It does take practice. It can’t be faked. And you have to know when to turn it off, and when to turn it back on again. But once you can take CONSCIOUS control of your ego, and adjust it according to the other person’s “ego frequency” you can easily get anybody to do pretty much anything. Even though this is pretty easy, few people know about this. Because this technique is ONLY available to those who can effectively MANAGE their ego. Since so few people even ACKNOWLEDGE their, this will give you an even stronger advantage. Just be careful. Using this for sales is fantastic. But if you use this for seduction, you might get people you’d just met falling hopelessly in love with you. And trust me, not many people SHOULD be qualified to fall in love with you.

  20. One of the fundamental discoveries of chemistry, which also has a huge impact on quantum physics, is the Paul Exclusion Principle. This law says that no two particles in the same system can have EXACTLY the same characteristics. For example, two electrons on level one in an atom have both the same level, so the must have different spins. There are a bunch of other characteristics, which allows for many different combinations. It’s kind of like a bunch of houses can have the same street name in their address, but they each have to have a different number. Essentially, every house in the world has more or less it’s own version of the Pauli Exclusion Principle. No two houses on earth can have the EXACT same address. No matter how similar they are, something HAS TO BE different. Human desires are like this as well. We will always have a ton of unmet desires within us. This is one way to describe humans, and all animals. We have a ton of desires that keep popping up. They stay satisfied, but then they pop up again. Things like food, safety, relaxation, movement, even things like learning and experiencing new things. Every single one of these sub-desires kind of oscillates between being satisfied, and being unsatisfied. And at any given time, we’ll have ONE desire that is STRONGER than all the rest. It will be like this until we are no longer. Even deeper down the rabbit hole is the idea that we understand on a deep and intuitive level that EVERY DESIRE will cost something. Either time, effort (which also means calories), money, or risk. Since we aren’t magical creatures that can poof things into existence, every single time we want to satisfy ANY desire, we have to pay the costs. Whether we are stranded on a desert island and have to climb trees to get some coconuts, or we are in our favorite burrito shop and have to fork over a few bucks to get what we want, trade is always involved. And this is the secret to easy riches. How? Because as soon as we think what we are GETTING is worth more than what we are GIVING, the transaction will be easy. The trick is to simply build the value of whatever they are getting, so they will GLADLY pay what you are asking. Of course “pay” doesn’t have to mean money. It might mean some risk they might incur by giving you their number. Or agree to doing YOUR idea instead of THEIR idea. Or handing you a sack of cash for whatever you are selling. Unfortunately, most people do this the wrong way. The hard way. The low probability way. When you do it the OPPOSITE way, (which takes time because it’s against human nature) everything will be opposite. Easy, natural and HIGH probability. Meaning once you learn how, getting others to do whatever you want will be EASY. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/sell-anything/
  21. Feedback is an essential element of all progress. Even the silly swimming pool game of “Marco Polo” is an example of a very basic feedback system. One kid has his eyes closes, and says, “Marco.” Then the other kids say “Polo.” And the kid, with his eyes closed, has to find and “tag” somebody else. Every time he says, “Marco,” and hears “Polo,” he has more info about where everybody is. We humans have all kinds of feedback systems built in. Once in elementary school, a friend of mine fell off his skateboard. In doing so, he got a stick stuck in his ear. It temporarily messed up his balance system. Our balance system lives inside of our inner ear. You mess it up and you can’t walk without falling over. Essentially the structure is the same as in airplanes, so when they are flying and can’t see anything, they can still stay level. When going after any goal, you need two elements. A directional or horizon goal, so you’re going in the right direction, and milestone goals, so you know you’re making the right progress. Way back in the day, before they invented farming, humans had both of these built in. The direction was wherever the food was. The milestone was their daily instinctive needs. When they were eating, this was a signal they’d been successful, and they could relax. When they were hungry, this was a signal to go out and kill something. When they learned how to track animals, every time they saw a new set of tracks, this was also a milestone goal, letting them know they were getting closer. When humans invented society, and more importantly money, this stayed the same on a structure level, but changes significantly on a content level. Now, since there’s tons of stuff to make and build and sell, any one “horizon” career goal will do. But the milestone goals are very, very simple. What are they? More money. Stated as simply as possible, if you constrain yourself by making money by creating something of value other people are willing to pay for, having more money as your goal will never fail you. The STRONGER your desire for money, the more motivated you’ll be to figure out ways to get it. The more motivated you are, the more ways you’ll figure out, and the more STUFF we humans keep inventing. In essence, modern human success is very simple. Build up as STRONG as a desire for money as you can. Then get out into the world and figure out how make some. Luckily, we humans come preprogrammed with instincts that make this possible. Since we humans have pretty much been doing this since the dawn of time. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  22. One idea that comes from reading stock charts is the idea of being “over extended.” For example, if a stock is bouncing along, very slowly going up over a couple of years, it looks pretty normal. The daily movements, the short and long moving averages are pretty close to one another. But then if the stock shoots WAY ABOVE it’s average movements, it could mean a lot of things. But one deep suspicion, no matter WHAT it means, is that it is unsustainable. No stock will ever go up at such a sharp angle for so long. Essentially, what makes a stock go up is that the buyers want to buy MUCH MORE than the sellers want to sell. Every point it goes up, this becomes less and less likely. EVENTUALLY, it will reach an equilibrium point. When buying and selling energy is back in balance. This is not completely different from the “growth spurt” that comes with puberty. If he believed that much growth is going to be consistent, a kid might calculate that by the time he’s 40, he’ll be fifty feet tall. Growth spurts in stocks are like growth spurts in kids. They may be completely natural, but they are also naturally UNSUSTAINABLE. When I finished watching the “Wolf of Wall St.” I was curious about the real events. So I went home and did some research on the guy. Turns out, that he made his riches while the entire stock market was going up at a 45 degree angle. During that environment, you could throw darts at the stock page, buy that stock, and still have a good chance of making money. So when Mr. Wolf was calling people at home, they already KNEW the market was screaming up every day. Which means they ALREADY had a very strong sense of FOMO. Fear Of Missing Out. In that environment, it’s VERY EASY to make money in the stock market. And it’s very easy to make money selling stock market scams. On a bigger scale, it’s VERY EASY to make money when the economy is screaming. All you have to do is show up and not do anything too stupid. When the economy is flat, or even shrinking, THAT’S when it takes some serious skills. If you go fishing in a lake over-stocked with dumb fish, it’s easy. Fishing in a lake with a few fish that specifically DON’T WANT to get eaten will require some serious fishing skills. Luckily, making money is an instinct. Since all humans have been essentially doing it since society was invented. While it not be easy, it IS natural. And the more you practice, the better you’ll get.

  23. Chomsky became famous for his transformational grammar theory. Basically, his idea was that Earth only has one language, and a whole bunch of dialects. He showed that we think in terms of basic language structure. And the only difference between the world’s languages is the deep structure. For example, some languages, like English are “subject - verb - object.” I ate a burrito. Others, like Japanese, are “subject - object - verb.” I burrito ate. But it turns out that each segment (the subject, the object and the verb) can be further broken down. And the structure of each “sub section” is the same structure of the whole. This is what he called “X-bar theory.” And when kids are between 0 and 3, they are actually calibrating their “language switches” to the local “dialect.” This is why you can take any kid, from any country, and no matter WHAT country he grows up in, he’ll speak like a native. It’s what Chomsky called “Universal Grammar.” Another guy named Brown similarly wanted to find a “Universal People.” Not a secret group of people that we all come from. But a metaphorical description of a metaphorical group of people that have the SAME traits of all other people. So he spent his entire career studying any group of people he could find. No matter how advanced or primitive. And he found TONS of similarities. Like people are shy when talking about sex. Nobody likes to be watched taking a dump. People believe in some kind of “magic,” or a kind of science that can’t be seen. Some of us call it religion, others call it metaphysics. But EVERY group of people believe in a set of laws that can’t be proven or demonstrated. EVERY culture has a fear of snakes. There are ZERO cultures on earth that think of snakes as cute and cuddly. Needless to say, when you find the SAME STUFF in every culture, then that kind of indicates it exists in our DNA. We don’t need to learn to be worried about being watched taking a dump. We don’t need to learn to be afraid of snakes. We don’t need to learn to be a bit timid about talking about a boner we just got looking at the girl sitting next to us in class. Another thing that is common in EVERY SINGLE CULTURE that has ever existed is the idea of trade or barter. Sometimes it happens between friends. Sometimes it happens between strangers. But it ALWAYS happens. And the ONE THING that is needed BEFORE any culture makes the leap from primitive to advanced is MONEY. Money comes first, everything else comes later. And since this happens EVERYWHERE on the planet, you can be there’s MONEY in your DNA. Wake It Up: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
  24. In stock charts, they have something called the “bleeding edge.” It’s very easy to fool yourself from studying stock charts that investing is pretty easy. Some of the technical indicators make it look simple. When this one line crossed over that one, it’s time to buy. When they cross back, it’s time to sell. Combine this with a sound money management strategy, and it’s easy money. Sound money management means if anything goes up 15%, sell it. If it goes down 5%, sell it. That means that even if you lose half of your trades, you still make money. If you stick to your money management, then the losses will cost you 5%, but the gains will make you 15%. Easy peasy, right? One of my favorite quotes that describes how NOT “easy peasy” this is: “Hitting a target is one thing. Doing so with a loaded pistol pointed at your heart is something else.” Meaning anybody can shoot at a target, and with enough practice, hit the bulls eye every single time. But once your life is on the line, it’s nearly impossible. Check any police shooting. It’s not uncommon for three or four cops to be shooting at a fleeing bad guy, each one shoot ten or twenty bullets, and MISS. This is why trading stocks is not nearly as easy as it looks. The “bleeding edge” is when you DON’T KNOW what is coming next. With each successive tick forward, it could go UP or it could go DOWN. Historical charts are graphical representations of hindsight being twenty-twenty. When you see the whole chart, past, present and future, it’s really not any different than yelling at the quarterback on TV. “Why don’t you pass the ball you dummy!” We look at situations MUCH DIFFERENTLY when our emotions get involved. Shooting at a target is EASY when it’s safe. But when the target is not only moving, but shooting back, it’s extremely difficult. This is why making money can seem so difficult. Everything seems easy when you’re reading about it. But when you get out there on the street, it’s much scarier. Luckily, we all have the deep INSTINCTS to make money. It’s just that in the modern world, they’ve been lulled to sleep. They aren’t simple instincts like eating, sleeping, and wanting sex. They are complex and subtle. But they ARE instincts. Which means you can understand them, cultivate them, and strengthen them. These are the SAME instincts that have driven humans to create ALL the stuff we have. Those same instincts are in YOU.

  25. A great story is “The Alchemist.” It’s an easy read, and it’s deeply metaphorical. Which means it can have a lot of different interpretations. Essentially, it’s about a kid who goes out into the world looking for the secret of alchemy. Alchemy, as it is traditionally thought of, is the process of taking sand or dirt, and turning it into gold. Before humans discovered atoms and molecules and the laws of chemistry, they really had no idea what “stuff” was made of. So they figured it might be possible to turn sand into gold. Even Isaac Newton believed in alchemy. But anyhow, the hero of the story goes out and searches the world for the secret to turning sand into gold. And in the process, he has plenty of adventures. He gets a job working in a shop as a salesperson. And he’s pretty good in sales, and makes a lot of money. Then he meets a girl and falls in love. Then he meets a man who can control the weather. Eventually he gives up and goes home. Only to find his home (which was a church) has burned down. And when he starts digging it up to build a new one, he finds hidden treasure under the ground. The moral can be that what you go looking for treasure OUTSIDE, you really have it INSIDE the whole time. But there’s another idea you can take away. He went looking for a secret shortcut to get rich. And he spent so much time and energy looking for that shortcut. Even in the process, he made money. He found a job in a shop, got good at it and made a LOT of money. But because he was looking for a SHORTCUT to money, he ignored the actual money he was making. Helping the shopkeepers selling their stuff to people who wanted and needed it. But since he was SO BUSY looking for a shortcut to riches, he missed the money he was actually making. I don’t know if this is what the author meant. But the dude could have had a pretty happy life. Making some good cash, married to a girl he loved and loved him. But he was SO BUSY looking for a shortcut, he missed all the TRULY good things in life. That he found secret treasure hidden back at home kind of ruins that part of the story. It kind of makes it sound like the secret to riches is to go out looking for it, and then come home and find some secret treasure. But the REAL SECRET to riches was hidden in the story about hidden treasure. And that is that people make things. People buy things. And every time this happens, money changes hands. Once upon a time, there was no stuff, and no money. Now there's TONS of stuff, and TONS of money. That is the REAL MAGIC. Get in THAT game, and get some.
