  1. Demons In Your Brain: https://mindpersuasion.com/parasite-demons-in-your-brain/ https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug02Loop.mp4
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug05Post.mp4 PT Barnum is famous for saying there is a sucker born ever minute. He's also famous for saying to never give a sucker an even break. But the second half of that statement is usually left off. The one that describes WHY, exactly, suckers are suckers. And that is that suckers ARE suckers because they are willing to believe something that is TOO GOOD to be true. The corollary is that you can't con and honest man. Because an honest man knows that if something SOUNDS too good to be true, there's usually a hidden catch. Most of us humans, however, are suckers. Or we can be. It doesn't take much to con us. With a little bit of understanding of human nature, it's pretty easy. For one, we are all programmed to MAXIMIZE what we get and MINIMIZE what we give. Normally, this is perfectly healthy. The guy selling you something wants to get the HIGHEST price possible. The guy buying that thing wants to get the LOWEST price possible. This eternal battle, between buyer and seller, is the underling principle between supply and demand. But at the same time, we have tons of biases. Tons of things that tilt our view of "reality." And plenty of con artists, advertisers, politicians, cult leaders and other scam artists know how to make us BELIEVE that something is too good to be true. But at the same time, we are told that we have FREE WILL. That ultimately, it's up to us. This is the intention behind the ANCIENT saying, "Caveat Emptor." Buyer beware. How can you be more "aware?" By understanding human nature. Not just the popular aspects of human nature. Not just the stuff that plenty of people nowadays use an excuse for their lack of success. But ALL of human nature. Ultimately, the game of life will keep on rolling. Without or without us. Life is not going to stop and wait for you to catch up. Which means we've got two choices. Hang out on the sidelines, and wait for somebody to make it EASIER. Wait for the rules to change. Wait for it to be more "fair." Or we can figure out how it works, as best as we can. And then get in and get some. Turns out this isn't NEARLY as difficult as it seems. Which is one of the BIGGEST cons out there. That it is SUPPOSED to be fair. That pretty soon it WILL be fair. Maybe that's to TRICK US into staying on the sidelines. To make it easier for those already IN the game. Only one way to find out. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/watching-mind/

  4. We humans seem to have a lot of holes in our brains. Not literally. But figuratively, or metaphorically. One way is when we imagine that mysterious "they." We imagine some mysterious group of people who have near magic control over our lives. Sometimes "they" are kind of specific. Like "they" have invented tires that never wear out, but since "they" won't make any money selling them, "they" have kept them secret. Or when ancient humans looked up at the stars at night and imagined the stars were actually gods looking down upon them. And if they had a bad crop, "they," the gods, were disappointed. This is helpful if it keeps us on track. We are hierarchical social animals, and a lot of times it helps to imagine that some mysterious and powerful group is in charge. But sometimes, this can hinder us. Especially if we have an opportunity to do something. We tend to wait around until somebody tells us what to do. Once I went to a seminar. The guy up on stage was pretty famous. He came out, and the crowd applauded and cheered for a while. But he just stood there. After it got quiet, he held out a $100 bill. Just stood there and smiled. For about 30 seconds, nothing happened. Then a woman ran up and grabbed it. He asked everybody why it took so long. There it was, free money, but everybody had the same thought. "I'd like to get that, but what if I make a mistake? I'd better sit here until somebody tells me what to do." This is another aspect of "instinct mismatch." Having strong social instincts, to follow the crowd, is generally a good thing. But if there is a very limited opportunity, waiting for the crowd is the LAST thing you want to do. Because once the FIRST PERSON goes and gets that opportunity, it will be gone. This presents a paradox. How do you know when to go first, and when to wait for somebody else to go first? How do you know when to take a risk? After all, before that woman got up there, he could have had a TOTALLY DIFFERENT idea. She might have gone up, realized her mistake, and had to walk back to her seat. While EVERYBODY was watching her. This is a VERY CLEAR example, and a very literal example of the famous saying: Fortune favors the bold. Most of us would LOVE to be told what to do. But if we wait to be told what to do, we'll get the same thing EVERYBODY ELSE will get. Going first is scary. Going first is rarely successful. But if you NEVER go first, you'll never capitalize on those opportunities. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/
