  6. Music is a fascinating subject. On one hand, you can describe it with an extreme amount of specificity. Chords, notes, progressions all have mathematically defined components. All music is based on the idea of standing waves. You have two kids with a jump rope, and they can ONLY create certain wave lengths. One wave equal to the length of the rope. Two halves of that same wave, etc. The length of the string (piano, violin) determines the sound when you pluck it. The size of the resonance chamber (trumpet, trombone, etc) determines the sound that comes out. The size and tension of a drum creates the pitch of sound. Certain music creates certain feelings. Major chord progressions create happy feelings. Minor chord progressions create sad feelings. Not just in some people, in all people. But emotions are impossible to define. The best writers are the best writers because they can describe emotions in great detail. But even then, they don't describe them directly. They use tons of metaphors to help. And even then, they write and rewrite those same passages over and over. (Hemingway once said it's best to write drunk and edit sober). Most of us, though, are HOPELESS when it comes to describing our emotions. Yet these mathematically precise sound waves can repeatedly create these extremely undefinable emotions within us. And when we are "resonating" certain emotions within us, we can resonate with each other. This is what happens when two people are on the same "frequency." When you go on a blind date, thinking maybe it might last an hour, but you end up talking until dawn. Same wavelength, resonating with one another, on the same page, clicking. These are all descriptions of harmonic resonance. You can find it everywhere. In people, on swing sets in the park, in cuckoo clocks, within any system. But like anything else in science, it can be good, or it can be bad. Harmonic resonance between two people "clicking" is perhaps the best feeling humans can experience. Especially if it happens AFTER sex. When you lay in bed talking for hours. But it can also be the WORST thing to happen. When large crowds start to resonate, they can burn down cities. Once it starts, it's nearly IMPOSSIBLE to stop. Most people don't even think about this stuff. They just like of go with the flow. When it's good, it's good. When it's bad, oh well. Understanding these social structures can be invaluable. You can consciously create good experiences, and keep our of bad experiences. This requires "going meta" so you can slowly build the BEST social resonance experiences. And step back when they start to get ugly. When you can consciously choose your social resonance, so that it resonates with your OWN goals, life can become magic. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/gurutrap/
  7. Once upon a time a bunch of marketing types were doing some experiments. They had a woman wait in line to make copies. And she asked people if she could cut in line. At first, she just said, "Hey, can I cut in line?" Most said, "Um, no." The next phase was to come up with a valid excuse. "Hey, because my car is parked in the red, can I cut in line?" Most people said, "Sure, ok." So far so good. But then it got kind of goofy. They tried different things AFTER the word, "because." Even this worked: "Can I cut in line, because I have to make copies." Most people let her cut in line. It seems that "because" is a magic word. It creates a feeling of "cause-effect." Most people have a problem with cause and effect. It's the source of all superstition. We wear our lucky underwear because that one time we found a dollar on the street we were wearing them. So now anytime we go gambling, or want to become financially lucky, we wear our lucky underwear. They've done experiments with little kids and even as young as six months, they see this cause-effect generator in action. One common way this is presented is when two things happen in sequence. First A happens. Then B happens. And most people assume that A causes B. A lot of times we get things backwards. Like a newspaper headline says, "Diet Soda Linked To Obesity!" Now, which is more likely: Skinny people start to drink diet soda and THEN gain weight. Or skinny people gain weight and THEN start to drink diet soda. Either way, you can LINK obesity and diet soda. But as they say in the newspaper business, one is a "dog bites man" story, which is uninteresting. The other is a "man bites dog" story and is VERY interesting. You'll see these false "cause-effect" connections EVERYWHERE. They are particularly dangerous when they show up in authority and social proof. We tend to believe that because people know what's what, that CAUSES them to gain authority. But the opposite is almost always true. They gain authority in ways nobody can measure or predict. Then EVERYTHING they say is thought to be true. Their truth didn't CAUSE their authority. But we believe they speak truth BECAUSE they are in a position of authority. Most people, in most societies, during most of history, simply CANNOT think any thoughts SEPARATE or different from what the authorities say is OK. At the same time, society can ONLY progress when some people decide to do just that. Think DIFFERENTLY than every other "normal" person. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/gurutrap/
  8. The behavior of human structure is very easy to see in other people. We give somebody advice, and they say: "Yeah, easy for you to say!" But it's nearly impossible to see in ourselves. One way is to "go meta." Which means to purposely look at ourselves, and our behavior from a "higher' or more "objective" perspective. This is the kind of thing people learn in NLP seminars. But it's also something people do VERY naturally and EXTREMELY effectively. How? If you ever keep any record of any of your behavior, either before or after, you are going meta. Two common ways are tracking your progress when exercising, or making a shopping list. For example, say you have a notebook in which you write down how much you lift at the gym. Every time you look at that list, you are going meta. You are NOT exercising, and you are looking at your results. You extrapolate out a few weeks, choose a target, and then carry that target in your head while you exercise. The "you" reading and planning is a different "you" doing the exercising. The same thing happens when you make a shopping list. The "you" making the list is a different "you" that is doing the shopping. The "you" doing the shopping is almost using the list as their "shopping coach." We are all also VERY familiar with what happens when we go shopping without our "shopping coach." Meaning we go shopping without a list (and not meta "us" to watch our shopping "us"). This is when buy junk food. Essentially, without a "shopping coach" we get "out framed" by the store. It's almost like we walk into the store, look around and say: "OK, store, I'll do whatever you want! What should I buy?" This is pretty much true in ALL AREAS of life. We can take a little time to "go meta" so we can later watch our own backs, and not get "our framed" by our circumstances. Or we can NOT plan, not go meta, not carry around any "coaches" (our meta and more objective selves) and hope for the best. This is what most people do. And most people get OUT FRAMED by life itself. But since you already know how to go meta, it's just a matter of doing that EVERYWHERE. So you don't waste any time, or money. Amazing things happen when you learn to BE your own GURU.

  9. Dale Carnegie was a super hero in his day. His most famous book, "How to Win Friends and Influence People" is what he's known for. But at the time, he had a huge teaching business. In fact, his interactions through his teaching business is how he learned all those rules. The seminars he ran were self confidence through public speaking. You can still take them today. Twelve weeks of intense confidence building through public speaking. If you've read the book, (or seen one of the many infographics summarizing the principles), they you know it's not a bunch of metaphysical hooey. It's common sense, "people logic" that actually works. There's a lot of overlap in his principles and the research of Dr. Cialdini. Cialdini is the guy who INVENTED things like "authority," "social proof," and all those other terms that people throw around without really understanding. Even more impressive, Cialdini didn't invent them in an academic ivory tower like a lot of other psychological mumbo jumbo. He actually went out with his team and did a lot of "field testing." Proper scientific type experiments (repeating tests, removing as many variables as possible) just to make sure he knew what was really happening. And savvy advertisers have been applying those same principles to increase sales by millions of dollars a year. Cialdini's angle is that persuasion isn't an art, it's a science. If you mix the same two chemicals in the same way, you'll get the same result every time. And if you apply the same persuasion techniques in the right way, you'll get the same result. One of Carnegie's most powerful idea is that you can get anybody to do ANYTHING, so long as it satisfies two very important criteria. The first is they have to do it for THEIR reasons. If you are trying to persuade somebody to do something because of what YOU think, you are breaking this important rule. The second is that they have to think it was THEIR idea. So if they even SUSPECT you are trying to influence them, then this rule is broken as well. If you adhere to these two very simple and very powerful rules, it's very easy. If you break either of both of them, then it's just a numbers game, and a low probability one at that. So, the billion dollar question. HOW, exactly do you follow those two rules? How can you communicate to somebody so they do what YOU want for their reasons AND believe it was THEIR idea? Like This: Hypnotic Sales
