  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct30Post.mp4 I've always loved movies. Most of them suck, but some a pretty good. Particularly the way the ones make you think. And within the ones that make you think, I've found two basic kinds. Where you're left with a kind of puzzle, and you need to solve it. And you can solve it by asking questions like: "What did that final scene mean?" An example is the last scene from Inception. Was he still dreaming, or was he awake? This is one scene that can be interpreted in many ways. And like a well written story, either choice, awake or dreaming, are supported by the facts that ONLY exist within the story. This leads to a surface level "agree to disagree," but a much deeper agreement. The agreement that it was a good movie worth talking about. But some movies go much deeper. They kind of force you to think in terms of "game theory." If this meant X, and then later that X was displayed this way, then the whole theme of the movie is Z. On the other hand, if it really meant Y, and then that later scene really meant Q, which means the entire theme was W. These are the very well written movies where nobody is even sure of what happened. My favorite "flavor" of this last type is the "was that real or was the character hallucinating?" question. That we tend to agree on "good" movies, "really good movies" and "spectacular movies" is an indication we all have the same AFFINITY for ideas or stories that are both complex and entertaining. This is, essentially, what makes a classic. Nobody can sit down and "write" a classic. Any book, movie, play, poem, or other piece of art MUST be "tested" by time. Ideas that are judged "high quality" over many generations have SOMETHING about them that is intriguing that is BEYOND language, or culture of technology. This is a function of our "collective memory." Things that are interesting or worthy (whatever that means) will STAY in people's brains. This that are boring, or superficially interesting will slip in and out. The more complex YOUR brain is, the more you'll appreciate everything. The more capably you can describe the THOUGHTS in your complex brain, the more people will admire you. For our species, our BRAINS are our best feature. The better shape your brain is in, the better shape you'll be in. The better shape you can turn thoughts into words, with creative articulation, the more INTERESTING you'll become. The more entertaining you'll become. The more pleasing you'll become. The more mesmerizing and attractive you'll become. Fortunately, you can practice ALL these just like you can practice things like juggling or pushups. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/creativity-accelerator/
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct29Post.mp4 One of the reasons we love fiction so much is it's much more entertaining that regular life. From a purely instinctive standpoint, ancient stories and archetypes served to give us something to live up to. This same idea showed in Dale Carnegie's books and trainings. If you want to motivate somebody to do something, give them a positive idea or image to live up to. Imagine little cave kids sitting around a fire. They're listening to the old storyteller tell another story about hero's and monsters. They hero kills the monster, is loved by his people, and gets the gorgeous young princess. All the little kids hear that and think that same thing: "That's what I want to be when I grow up." But that idea, of watching a hero in a story, and wanting very much to BE like hero, requires an environment that both allows it and requires it. For ancient humans, the requirements were simple. If you don't kill, you don't eat. But there was also the very positive motivation. Whoever was the BEST killer, would get the BEST of everything. Respect, admiration and plenty of sex. This two-sided feedback loop is required. Pain if you don't try to emulate the hero. If you don't at least TRY to become the best hunter, you won't get squat. The positive side of the feedback loop is also required. The better you do, the more rewards you get. This is why modern movies don't motivate us NEARLY as much as they used to, way back in the day. Very few kids watch Iron Man and think: When I grow up, I'm going to be a billionaire genius and invent all kinds of cool things. But even then, the same drive is there. "When I grow up, I want to do great things." This deep drive exists in everybody. So we'll always have this meta structure built into movie heroes. But since we have conscious brains, and can point our decisions in deliberate directions, there is another trait we can emulate. One that is almost ONLY found in movies. But this trait is INSANELY compelling real life. One because it is instinctively compelling. Two because it is so RARE in real life. And since trait is VERY compelling in the movies, if you CAN emulate this in real life, you will be a kind of social hero. The super charismatic guy or gal EVERYBODY wants around. What is this trait, specifically? The ability to speak articulately and passionately about ANY story or topic. It turns out WHAT you are talking about isn't nearly as important as HOW you talk about it. Specifically when you're talking about intangible ideas and stories. Ideas and stories that EVERYBODY has in their brains but few can describe. So when YOU show up, and YOU describe these with energy, articulation and charisma, they'll be mesmerized.

  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept26Post.mp4 One huge mistake people make when setting goals is how they think of them. The language used to describe goals is as if they are things. We use abstract or intangible nouns as if they were real things. This is what George Lakoff, a linguist and student of Noam Chomsky found. Looking at the word we use WITH those intangible nouns gives us an idea of HOW we think, subconsciously, about intangible nouns. For sample, why are we "in" a meeting? A meeting is not a real thing. It's a temporary, shared hallucination. But we say "in" a meeting as if it were some kind of container. Are you "in" a meeting when you're sitting around in the meeting room waiting for everybody to show up? Suppose the meeting is over, and there are only three people, and all three people are in an elevator. Are you still "in" a meeting? But what about being "on" a team. Why "on" a team and not "in" a team? One, because teams exist for many months or years. Two, is a focus on a meeting is inward. The focus of a team is outward. You travel around and fight against another teams. Like you're "on" your horse fighting against another guy who is "on" his horse. This is a pretty cool rabbit hole to get stuck in. The metaphorical meanings of all the words we use. Anyhow, back to goals. We treat goals as if they are singular objects. I'm going to get a burrito. I'm being followed by the cops and I want to lose them. I want to get rid of this ingrown hair. I want to "lose" weight. I want to "get" out of debt. I want to "get" smarter. These make it seem like you do a bunch of stuff, "get" the goal, and go back to your life. This is one reasons why most people suck a getting goals. But another reason is want to HURRY UP and get them over with. Kind of like having a difficult conversation with your boss or partner. You feel it as an uncomfortable thing. Grit your teeth, get it done, and relax. This makes goals TWICE as difficult to get. A much better, and much easier way is to think in terms of continuously improving. So slowly and steadily that you can do a little bit each day. For example, there are plenty easy, very short, daily "exercises" you can do to improve your memory. To improve your focus. To improve your creativity. To improve your articulation. And once this becomes a daily HABIT, you're memory will always be improving. Your focus will always be improving. Your creativity will always be improving. Your articulation will always be improving. Your BRAIN will always be improving. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/mental-strength/
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept25Post.mp4 Magic tricks are cool. I've been fortunate enough to know two guys who were professional, up close, sleight of hand magicians. Up close meaning they would perform at places like this club in Hollywood called the "Magic Castle." And they wouldn't be up on stage. The rooms were set up like rooms at big, Hollywood Hills style house parties. And the guy would be sitting behind a table, and they would have very small, kind of "bleachers" set up. So you could have a straight line of sight from where you were to the dudes hands. The rooms were small enough so you could hear the magician talk without him needing a mic or even to speak loudly. And they would tell this long, stories while doing their tricks. Card tricks. Shuffling and dealing. And since these guys were top notch, sleight of hand specialists, they could deal FROM anywhere in the deck and deal TO anywhere in the deck. We'd be watching his hands closely. He'd be watching his hands closely. He'd be telling some long, random story. But the story would end, and he'd deal out all the cards, one by one, and they would match PERFECTLY. Clearly this is something you'd need to practice A LOT. But it was also a kind of blurred reality. Often, when a magician is telling a story, it's mostly for misdirection. You're paying attention to the story, not his a hands. But when the story is actually part of the trick, it creates a very, very hypnotic effect. My other friend did a bit of stage work, but for him, magic was mostly a hobby. He'd show up at a bar, talk a good game, telling magician type stories, while doing simple tricks with coins, etc. He's ALWAYS get a crowd around him. And even though he wasn't "handsome" by any stretch, the dude got laid like CRAZY. Even if you don't know any magic, don't want to learn any magic, you can still leverage this technique. Of talking a good game. But this is the cool part. Most people are NOT articulate. Most people mumble their words, or repeat words and phrases used by others. But articulation, and verbal energy are two things can PRACTICE. And practice every day. All by yourself. So even if you are talking about a duck you saw while walking in the park, you can generate the same magical effect. The secret is that unless you are helping a pilot land a plane, the words you use are NOT very important. So you take any random words, and add in some mental power, and some mental based articulation, you can mesmerize anybody. And crowds will gather just to hear you speak.

  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb05Post.mp4 It's very easy for us silly humans to mix up cause and effect. Or to not notice all the variables that are going on. Take a common example. A guy is talking to a girl, and it's obvious the girl is into the guy. All the guys watching this are wondering WHAT he is saying. The idea is if we can UNDERSTAND what that guy is saying, and somehow emulate that, we can get the same results. This is based on a META assumption about human interactions and communications. We see somebody. We want something from that person, or with that person. We'd like to sell them something. Or get to know them to perhaps start a relationship. Or at the bare minimum, interact with them so they have a good impression of us. Most people ASSUME this is based on what we say to them. The most common question in these situation is "what do I say?" Consider that this assumption is incorrect. AND very dangerous. We have this very superficial idea that our words will leave our mouths, get into their brains and create some of feeling. If this were true, we could walk up, give them a note and it would have the same effect. This is ALMOST how it works in the movies. But consider that the words we use, and more importantly, the phrases and the energy beneath them is ONE variable in ALL the variables that make up how others perceive us. There's another idea that is very important. That overall, beyond our words, beyond our energy, is how WE perceive ourselves. Consider that how WE feel about ourselves is THE most important variable in all communication. Sales, seduction, and everything in between. For example, we tend to be "attracted" to people who are MORE articulate rather than less articulate all else equal. People that can say basic things but in interesting ways are MORE attractive than people who can express those SAME thoughts with much less robust words and phrases. And if you can connect positive energy to your articulation, you will be VERY difficult to resist. You or your ideas or even the products you may be selling. What, specifically, do we mean by positive energy? You LIKE what you are talking about. You LIKE YOURSELF as your talking about it. You LIKE the conversation you are having with the person you are having it with. The actual THING you are talking about is NOT NEARLY as important as all the other stuff. Luckily, you can work on your articulation just like you can work on your pushups or any other skill. And articulation is connected to your brain in a kind of form-function kind of way. You practice one, and you'll practice the other. If you build a daily practice of THIS, your overall attraction and charisma will continue to increase.

  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan29Post.mp4 The relationship between thoughts and words is complex. There are some folks who have brilliant minds, and write brilliant books, but they are less than inspiring speakers. Then there are some that are powerful speakers, but their minds are average. These folks tend to get others to write their speeches for them. Every time you see a politician go off on a rant, like they often do during congressional hearings, you can bet on two things. One, is that somebody else helped them come up with those words. Two, is that they've practiced that "rant" plenty of times beforehand. Even those "man on the street" interviews are pretty well rehearsed, and edited. They are very rarely live. The ones that ARE live are really just the newscaster talking to the camera, saying things they've rehearsed over and over. (Some of these are comedy gold, not because of the reporter, but because of all the goofs doing silly things behind them.) The people that CAN spit our pretty articulate thoughts on the spur of the moment are few and far between. Most highly articulate people you see on TV interviews only SEEM to be articulate. Because they are talking about things related to their jobs. Things they've thought about over and over and over for a long time. Things they've talked about over and over and over for a long time. But to become articulate and intelligent sounding in spur-of-the-moment conversations, when it really counts, you have to do some META practice. Everybody mentioned so far only does surface level practice. They practice talking about the same CONTENT over and over. If you followed your favorite comedian around the country, going to all their shows, they'd get pretty boring. They don't tell a completely different set of jokes every time. They tell the same jokes every time. To develop in-the-moment articulation and demonstrate DEEP intelligence, you need to practice STRUCTURE. The structure of persuasion. The structure of influence. The structure of seduction. The structure of reframing. The structure of overcoming objections. Once you get the structure down, you can take any CONTENT, drop it into the structure, and sound like a GENIUS. This will make your spoken language sound compelling and powerful. But your written language much, much more so. Why? Once you have the structure down, you can refine whatever you write until it is ABSOLUTELY perfect. Most people write like an artist. That's only half the game. What's the other half? Write like an artist, but edit like a scientist. A MAD scientist, writing in your secret money making lab. Build one, and you'll simultaneously build the other. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/hypnotic-copywriting/
