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.

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/
