  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr15Post.mp4 I've lived in, and have been to, plenty of countries where few people speak English. The first few times was pretty scary. It's one thing to be a tourist, and go to tourist places that are expecting you to not speak the local language. But if you're going to some neighborhood grocery store to buy something to eat, unexpected communication requires a lot of thinking. Two things that don't normally go together. Especially when they say something you don't understand, yet they are looking at you with a friendly, pleasant face and expect an answer. No matter how smart you think you are, this will make you feel like an idiot. Once I got over my initial fears of communicating, something else REALLY COOL happened. I started to notice the absolute MASSIVE amount of non-verbal communication. Whenever we talk to people in our native language, we RARELY pay attention to body language. When we are with our friends, we are relaxed. So we don't pay attention to the words OR the body language. When we are talking to somebody new, we pay ALL our attention to the words. But when you surround yourself with people speaking a language you can't understand, there is ONLY non-verbal communication. And guess what? Once you get over any anxieties you may have, speaking ONLY with gestures and other non-verbal communication is ALMOST enough. I've gotten directions, given specific instructions to barbers, and even had a conversation with a doctor while he was removing a cyst. All through gestures and other non-verbal body language. Most people will never truly experience, at least consciously, the VAST AMOUNT of potential of non-verbal communication. Being in a foreign country, surrounded by non-English speakers FORCES you to communicate through body language. But there are plenty of ways to practice this right where you are. It's like practicing anything else. It takes conscious effort, but it's worth it. Just a few minutes a day. And once you see how much information is being passed back and forth, it's like having access to an ENTIRE world of data. If you can consciously communicate in this language, when everybody else is doing it subconsciously and haphazardly? You'll be like the one-eyed guy who is KING in the land of the blind. And since you will be communicating on a level much more powerful than words, the words you do use won't matter nearly as much. Whatever you decide to talk about will be perceived as magnificent. Filled with charisma and magnetic attraction. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/storytelling-magic/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar13Post.mp4 The other day I saw this pretty cool gif. One of those short, animated ones. It was (I think) a lady sitting on the edge of a cliff. Not really a cliff, a huge rock formation. The edge wasn't really an edge, more like an ever increasing slope. And since it was a rock, and not dirt, she seemed to have a lot of grip, due to the surface of the rock. But she kept sliding forward. Because the curve was pretty gradual, it looked liked she might go sliding off the edge at any point. Then the camera zoomed out, and you could see what might happen if she slid only a couple more inches further. It was only a small, low resolution, two or three second gif. But it make me wince, and say out loud: "Holy crap, dude!" Just watching things like this makes us FEEL things. They think the part of our brain that makes us feel "sympathetic emotions" when watching others helped to maintain tribal cohesion in our ancient past. If we saw somebody in trouble, we would "feel it" ourselves, and that feeling would motivate us to help get them OUT of trouble. This would motivate us to help others, but partially for our own selfish reasons. By helping them, we eliminate their pain, so we eliminate our pain. We also feel good about ourselves for helping them. They'll remember us for helping them, and so will all the people who saw us help them. Key to all of this the "mirror neuron" effect. We see other people experience things, and we feel the same effect. It's hard to watch a guy on YouTube get kicked in the nuts and NOT wince, at least a little bit. This is ALSO one technique people use to judge us. Not judge in a negative way, but to get a quick read of who we are, our personality, whether we are friend of foe, etc. This happens quickly and mostly subconsciously. You see somebody shifty, and you just KNOW to avoid them. Or you see somebody who is confident and you KNOW they are good person to have around. We are ALWAYS projecting our opinion of ourselves, how we feel about the situation we are in, and how well we think we can handle ourselves. If you are up to no good, and trying to con people, you'll give off the "creepy" kind of vibe. If you are confident in yourself, your abilities, and your overall world in general, this will give off a much different vibe. In a very short handed, powerful way, the more you LIKE YOURSELF, the more others will like you as well. This has to be genuine, and not faked. Luckily, there are plenty of ways that you can slowly, consistently and easily INCREASE how much you like yourself. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/self-esteem/

  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun13Post.mp4 One common piece of "advice" is to fake it till you make it. Sometimes this works pretty well. Other times it is bad advice. It works well when there is a simple correlation between inner state and outer behavior. And it's in an environment that is conducive. What's this mean? Normally, we think and behave naturally. We don't think about how we think. And we don't think about our thinking affects our behavior. Like if you are happy, you will naturally smile. But you can first smile, and hold it until it affects your inner state. And if you happen to be in a conducive environment, other people will see you smile and some will smile back. So if you are unhappy inside, but you FORCE yourself to exhibit happy behavior by smiling, you're faking it. Because it's a pretty close correlation between inner state and outer behavior, AND the environment is conducive to this, this is where faking it till you make it works. Even better is when you combine two simple "faked states." Like if you FORCE yourself to walk more upright and confident, AND you smile. If you're around fairly friendly people, this will work pretty well. On the other hand, faking it till you make it is HORRIBLE advice. Imagine trying this when selling $500 vacuum cleaners door to door. And you were trying to "fake" being the greatest vacuum cleaner salesman of all time. The reason this would be a disaster is neither of the two conditions are present. Not only is there NOT a simple correlation between inner state and outer behavior, but there is the OPPOSITE of a conducive environment. Most self help advice is like this. Pretty simple, and useful in SOME situations, but not in many. Sure, they sound good. Which means they're easy to remember. But in order to achieve real and continued success, you need to have a lot of skills. Inner skills and outer skills. Inner skills of thinking and feeling. Outer skills of speaking and behaving. And skills of reading the inner state of others. Often, this is the missing ingredient in a LOT of situations. You can remember all the best language patterns and techniques. But if you use them at the wrong time, with the wrong person, they'll backfire. The more you can READ the internal state of the person you're interacting with, the less you need to worry about complex external behavior. And more often than not, being able to accurately read others simply means turning OFF your inner anxiety. Since humans, in our natural state, are resonators. We can FEEL what each other is thinking and feeling with a lot of accuracy. But only when you get rid of the useless junk inside. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/eq/
  5. Which one would you say is more important to practice if TIME was an issue. For example, if you only had one hour a day to practice body language or enhancing your Persuasive Communication which would you say is more important. Context: For my YouTube Channel would you say I should increase my body language or improve my ability to communicate? I am interested in receiving your feedback on this matter.
