  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov02Post.mp4 A long, long time ago, humans were "persistence hunters." Or more accurately, proto-humans were persistence hunters. This is why we evolved hairless sweaty bodies and arched feet. Arched feet to absorb the shock of jogging or running. Sweaty and hairless so we could bleed off body heat. The animals we chased after couldn't do this. They would sprint up ahead, overheat, and have to stop and pant. Eventually, we'd catch up. Like an ancient tortoise vs. hare death match. This was HOW we got energy. Every animal needs energy. And humans, and all primates like us are hierarchical. Top monkeys are alpha. Based on productivity. So the ancient proto-humans who could consistently run the furthest to catch enough food for everybody were the heroes. That all changed when we discovered fire. Fire allowed us to strategize. To light a bunch of fires to scare away the animals. So we could hide in strategic places. Running after an animal doesn't require much brainpower. But lighting fires in strategic places does. It requires a lot of conditional abstract thinking. If this happens, then this might happen, so do this instead. It requires a lot of teamwork, which requires a leader. An ancient quarterback. This is when our BRAINS became the alpha-tool. Whoever had the BEST idea was the alpha. Whoever had the best idea they could turn into delicious meat to feed starving tribal members would be loved, respected and admired. It's not mystery why our BRAINS started growing around the time we invented fire. Our visual cortex is 50% of our brain. Seeing and processing images. Imagining all the potential outcomes of any potential future. Before fire, humans competed on PURE stamina. After fire, humans competed by BRAINS. Even today, two million years later, we compete with our brains. If you're sitting in a boardroom trying to solve a problem, whoever has the BEST idea will win. Ancient people who could their ideas into FOOD were respected, loved, and admired. Modern people who can turn their ideas into products, services, interesting stories, etc., are loved, respected and admired. If you're at party, and you can talk a good game, you'll be the center of attention. If you're talking to a hot lady or a hot guy, and you can move their emotions with your brain-language power, they'll love you forever. And brains are like muscles. You can build them. Build your thinking skills. Build your speaking skills. Build your imaginations skills. There are few things that having a BETTER BRAIN won't make easier to get.

  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept20Post.mp4 A long time ago, I lived in a really small town. In a foreign country. Not so many gorgeous girls. Then I went to a much bigger city. My eyes almost popped out of my head. I had sort of "re-calibrated" my beauty standards, based on the small town. So when I saw what I otherwise would have thought of as "normal" beauty, I felt like I was momentary surrounded by super models. Of course, it didn't take long for economics to rear its ugly head. The most ancient law of the planet, and the universe. The one that says everything costs something. What were the "costs" of being surrounded by what my re-calibrated brain thought were super models? When I went back to my small town. Saw these girls through this re-re-calibrated beauty lens. This is based on a law of influence. Comparison and Contrast. How we value things is influenced by what we compare them to. For example, a high end kitchen appliance shop was having a hard time selling a coffee machine. So they hired a consultant. The coffee machine was $300. No problem said the consultant. Put another coffee machine next it. With only one more, relatively small feature, but charge $500. By itself, the $300 coffee machine looked OK. But next to a $500 coffee machine, it looked like a steal. A restaurant had a similar problem. They had a bunch of $50 a bottle wine nobody was buying. So they bought just a couple bottles of $500 a bottle wine. Before, the $50 wine was the most expensive on the list. So, nobody bought it. But once it was next to a $500 bottle of wine, it was a steal. Compared to nothing else, those girls in the small town started to look better and better. But then when I saw the big city girls, those small town ladies lost their allure. There's an old joke about two guys who are hiking. They see a bear, and one guy starts putting on his running shoes. His buddy says you can't outrun a bear. Running shoes guy says I don't need to outrun the bear, I only need to outrun you. When you are ANYWHERE talking to ANYBODY you don't need to be the alpha of the planet. You only need to be the alpha of the room. Turns out this is VERY easy. But only if you practice some powerful inner game. Since most people these days are fake, partly because their inner game is TERRIFIED, you can clean up. How? By practicing some simple, "energy exercises." Kind of like meditation. But they have a very powerful side effect. That will make YOU look like a hero. No matter who else is in the room. All based on your non-verbal communication. So the words you DO USE if you choose to use them, won't matter. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/attractive-mindset/
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun27Post.mp4 When I was a kid, me and my friends would play football. Usually two on two, or three on three. In the street, or somewhere. This was way back in the days when it was safe to play outside. Often, when somebody's mom would come looking for them, we'd use the "next touchdown wins" rule. Even if one team was ahead by a lot, we wanted to make it exciting till the very end. This also made it feel like we had control. So that nobody could blame somebody else's mom for interrupting the game, when they were JUST about to mount their comeback. As adults, nobody would put up with that. Even in some places (before the internet) when they had concerts go on sale, they'd give everybody who lined up a random number. Imagine if you were waiting in an office for a job interview. For a very FANTASTIC job. You had the degree, you had the experience, and you'd even hired a consultant to help you practice giving the best interview possible. So you show up, and there are about 20 other people in the interview room. But then a couple minutes before your scheduled time, the hiring manager comes out of his office. "Sorry everybody, but my wife just called. I need to come home IMMEDIATELY for dinner, or I'll be in big trouble!" "So, we're just going to put everybody's name in a hat, and whoever I draw is going to get hired!" The only person NOT pissed would be the dude or gal whose name was drawn. But even then they'd feel like they cheated. And any company who hired randomly like this would go out of business. Life has been on earth for more than a billion years. And yes, genetic variations are randomly created. But the only ones that survive, and replicate, are the ones that can DO BETTER than everybody else. The BETTER something is, the more competition there will be. The best jobs, the best houses, and the BEST relationship partners. Imagine if they made a LAW saying that all relationships would be determined by RANDOM selection. That would SUCK! One common idea that is very "popular" today is that there isn't much difference between men and women. Or within men and women, any label of "attraction" is a social construct. This is utter horse poopy. Imagine a couple of ladies in front of you. One is your absolute DREAM girl. The other is the OPPOSITE of your DREAM girl. Both in EVERY WAY. Body type, hair type, personality type, intelligence, EVERYTHING. Dream girl on one side. Anti-dream girl on the other. If you had a MAGIC WAND, that could easily make EITHER GIRL fall madly in love with you, which would you choose? Is there ANYTHING that would make you NOT choose the REAL dream girl? No effing way! Here's the harsh truth. Women feel the SAME WAY about men. There are DREAM MEN, and there are ANTI dream men. Which one do you want to be? Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/seductive-frame/
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar17Post.mp4 We humans love competition. For fun, for business, and for fun. However, it's very easy to shy away from any kind of competition. For kids, this is pretty normal. You'll find plenty of little league sports that are easing the kids into competition. The first step is to get them running around and moving with other kids. The next step is to get them switching from offense to defense, or at least understanding what they mean. During this phase, they "score" but they don't "keep score." In most sports, this is a reminder of ancient battles of territoriality. Protect your goal, attack the other player's goal. Even in chess, they use the words "attack" and "defend." Eventually, the kids will start keeping score. They'll know the difference between the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat. This is very, very necessary for a healthy personality. Because competition is EVERYWHERE. You want that ideal job? So do a lot of other folks. You want that cute girl or guy? So do a lot of other folks. You want that perfect house in that perfect neighborhood? So do plenty of other folks. It CAN be possible, in some areas, to avoid competition completely. This makes life VERY safe, but also VERY boring. Competition is where the fun is. Even when watching a football game with your buddies on a Sunday afternoon, they conversation will have competition built into it. Who can tell the funniest joke. Who can come up with the cleverest insults to the refs. Who can jump up and scream the loudest and the most enthusiastically when their team scores. Competition is like that one mohawk dude from one the Mad Max movies. "You! You can run! But you can't hide!" Some competitions are easier to face than others. It's VERY EASY to give up. Especially in modern society, where pretty much EVERYTHING is easy. At least not dangerous. But the MORE you can embrace and engage in competition, the better you'll do. Not in a caveman, battle to the death way. But in the friendly, "attack the other guy's king," chess way. And very often, how strong your competition FRAME is, the better you'll do. This is EXACTLY why boxers give each other the scare of death before the bell rings. This same thing takes place in the boardroom, on the tennis court, and while hanging out with friends. Most of the time, this "competition frame" is fake. A conscious ATTEMPT to demonstrate some kind of dominance. But a REAL and GENUINE competition is VERY powerful. Because it's NOT fake. It's congruent. A deep belief in yourself. Not even to win, but to ENJOY the game. It's one thing to try and fake a dominance frame. But when you present a congruent, "I'm going enjoy this," frame, it will be very rare, and very powerful. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/self-esteem/
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar05Post.mp4 Being more flexible is better than being less flexible. It's hard to imagine a scenario when having less flexibility would be an asset, rather than a liability. But flexibility comes in many, many forms. There's physical flexibility, where you can touch your toes without screaming in pain. If you weren't very flexible, for example, and there was a sudden zombie apocalypse, you'd be in trouble. Especially if you were outside when it happened. Particularly if they were the fast running zombies. You see a zombie coming your way, you instinctively run in the opposite direction, and pull a muscle. Not only are you about to get eaten, but you're laying on the ground in pain, grabbing your hamstrings in agony. The last thing that goes through your mind as the zombies gather around and sink their zombie teeth in your delicious flesh: "Dang! I should have spent a few minutes stretching in the morning!" Dong something as simple as a few morning stretches can save your life! Flexibility of thinking is also an asset. And not just in zombie apocalypses. Those who are much more creative in their problem solving skills tend to have much better positions. Today and way back in our evolutionary past. We can imagine an ancient tribe of humans. So long as they had a few guys who could think outside the box, they'd be OK. The guys who could think outside the box would tend to be the tribal leaders. The other guys just needed to do what they were told, and they'd be good. For plenty of people, that would be a dream come true. Show up at any kind of job, be told EXACTLY what to do, and get paid a lot of money. Unfortunately, if you did find a job opening like that, there'd be a kajillion applicants. Once, a long while ago, I actually ALMOST applied for a job like that. I saw an add for meter reader. Walk around, go in people's backyards, and read some kind of meter. Since it was a government job, the pay and benefits were very high. Walk around outside all day, read some numbers off a meter, write them on a clipboard, and make a ton of money. I drove to the building where they were holding the interviews, but I didn't even bother parking. Even though I got there an hour early, the line was HUGE! Everybody LOVES the idea of big pay for brainless work. But if you can manage to develop lateral thinking skills, creative problem solving skills, and more and more ways to skin the proverbial cat, you'll be in a much better position. More authority, more pay, and more people who'll naturally defer to your leadership. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/tongue-fu/
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan17Post.mp4 Recently, or perhaps not so recently, there have been a lot of "concern" with AI. That one day soon, robots will take over. Of course, this is nothing new. One of the episodes of the Twilight Zone was some poor guy who put himself out of a job by too much automation. Every since the Industrial Revolution, people have been worried about being replaced by robots. So, perhaps the latest fears of super intelligent AI somehow deciding we humans are obsolete is just another version of that. But consider that humans have something AI will never have. This is easy to understand from an evolutionary perspective. Evolution is based on natural selection. Natural selection is essentially a competition. A fight between and among species, sometimes called "survival of the fittest." But even that label is a bit too understated. Whoever can survive gets to live. Whoever loses, loses. A common misunderstanding is that evolution has some specific goal it is pointing toward. Something "better" or more efficient. It's nice to think that, but it might not be true. The environment evolves naturally. Sometimes heavily influenced by the living creatures, sometimes not. Whoever can "keep up," gets to stay alive. Whoever doesn't, doesn't. What does "keep up" mean, exactly? Getting enough food to stay alive. Having enough sex and making enough copies. Sounds simple, right? Get enough to eat, and get laid a few times? But at the same time, 99% of all living things eventually didn't make the cut. They got eliminated. Thanks for playing. They couldn't get enough to eat, and couldn't have enough sex. One way to think about the slowly evolving environment, and all the living creatures trying desperately to keep us, is with the joke about the two guys hiking who see a bear. Two guys see a bear. One guy starts putting on his running shoes. Other guys says he's crazy since he can't outrun a bear. First guy says I don't need to outrun the bear, I just need to outrun you. This is natural selection in a nutshell. This is also survival within any society, based on any metric, in nutshell. This is why many people like the idea of magic and free stuff. Because at its heart, all life is essentially a competition. People don't like to compete. People like guaranteed incomes and participation trophies. What does this mean, for you, Dear Reader? Embrace the competition. Embrace your inner drive. Your human spirit. To get in the game. Not to play, not to have fun, but to win. Dominate: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-instinct/
