  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov22Post.mp4 The fear of rejection is very, very common. It's a remnant of our childhood. All kids ask for a billion things. Even if a kid has a 50% success rate, this also means they have a 50% failure rate. Which means even the most successful humans have a crap ton of memories of asking and being told no. Sometimes with patience and kindness. Sometimes with anger and frustration. But we humans are pretty resilient. If you have kids, you maybe wish sometimes that your kids weren't so resilient. We keep pushing forward until we get what we want. All kids are pretty much programmed with a "keep asking until you get it" program. When we are adults, this childhood program is still running. Part of us feels as if we need to ask for whatever we want from others. Even if we don't express what we want through a question, we still feel some of that "asking energy." This is why most normal humans feel a small echo of that potential rejection with the silliest things. Like asking for more water from a waiter, or sending back the wrong dish. This is much more pronounced when we are in social situations. With a waiter or anybody in any kind of business situation, it's kind of their job to do what we want. But if you see an attractive person across the room, asking for their number seems a BILLION times more difficult than asking for more fries. However, asking is NOT appropriate. Nobody sees themselves as the holder of goodness. Of the giver of pleasure. To give or withhold their goodness based on HOW us poor peasants ask. EVERYBODY has the same collections of anxieties. So asking is the WRONG strategy. Instead, consider a strategy of CREATING PLEASURE. Not giving pleasure. Not exchanging pleasure. Not using the idea of pleasure to get what you want. Of just being a person who CREATES pleasure in others. All humans have a cause-effect generator in our brains. This has been demonstrated scientifically in children as young as six months. It's believed to be a very, very necessary evolutionary trait. So what? When YOU make it a habit of causing pleasure in others, just because you enjoy doing that, that will trigger the cause-effect generator. By creating pleasure in others, you will create the following equation in their brains: YOU = GOOD TIMES When more and more people start to see you like this, this will kick off some powerful and ancient attraction triggers. Social proof, authority and sexual desire. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.teachable.com/p/party-hypnosis/
  2. Why Being Yourself Is Excellent Advice: https://mindpersuasion.com/be-yourself-is-excellent-advice/ https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July23Loop.mp4
  3. Way back in the day, life was pretty easy. At least, in some ways. In other ways it sucked. But one of the ways it was relatively easy was we silly humans didn't have to make a lot of tough choices. You went to school long enough (high school or college) and then got a job. So long as you did what you were told, you could make enough money to live a decent life. Of course, that's not true for hardly anybody anymore. Nowadays, you've always got to stay on top of things. Which on the one hand, gives us a lot more flexibility and freedom. But on the other hand, it can be pretty terrifying. An age old argument is freedom vs. structure. Both have their own merits. Unfortunately, few humans ever get to choose. We show up, and we got what we got. If you don't mind always thinking outside the box, you can do pretty well. If you need to be told what to do, step by step, not so much. This is true not only in our economic lives but in relationships. Back in the day, everybody lived in the same areas their whole lives. You met somebody growing up, and ended up with that person. The next generation repeated the process. Not, the dating game is nearly chaotic. If you wait for it to "happen" you might be waiting a long time. Luckily, if you are willing to think outside the box, you can do MUCH BETTER than those who just showed up and "let it happen." This requires that you understand the process. And be able to manage the process. Which requires doing things that aren't intuitive. In fact, in order to build the strongest relationships, you have to do the OPPOSITE of what your instincts are screaming. This is the hardest part. Not knowing what to do, but being able to do it. Luckily, if you start slow, and build your way up, you can develop these skills just like any other skills. And with relationship building skills, you can create any relationship you want, any time.

  4. I love watching movies. All kinds, but in particular I'm a big fan of the "found footage" genre. Many people think they suck, but for some reason I find them entertaining. A normal group of people doing normal things and then a bunch of ghosts or aliens or something shows up and kills everybody. There are some really good ones, and some not so good ones. It's easy to understand why they are pretty popular, at least with movie makers. They're cheap to make (you don't need a lot of equipment or expensive actors) and the potential is huge, due to viral marketing. One of the originals, "The Blair Witch Project" from back in the 90's was purely viral marketing. They spent less than a million to make it, and ended up making tons. What worked even better, from a marketing standpoint was "Paranormal Activity." It cost less than a million to make, and grossed over 250 million worldwide. Mostly by word of mouth, or "viral marketing." If you can leverage viral marketing, you can MASSIVE return for very little cost. Even in your own life. If you have a good reputation in your social circle, you're "pre-vetted" for a lot of things. Relationships, jobs, or if you're throwing a party. Word gets around and everybody wants to help you. This isn't as difficult as it seems, even if you don't have very much of a social circle. All you need to do is get out there, and interact with others in the right way. Get interested in them, instead of talking about yourself. Pretty soon you can be the guy or girl that everybody wants to be around. All through word of mouth. Any time you need anything, you can tap your social circle, and they'll have your back. Click Here to Learn More
  5. The other day I saw a friend of mine. He told me that because it was so cold over the previous weekend, he never left his house. He's married with a couple of kids, so staying in all weeekend wouldn't be so bad. I don't know about you, but I need to get out at least a couple of times a day. Otherwise I'll feel like a hermit. Sure, being sick with the flu is one thing, when all you want to do is sleep. But I always feel like I'm missing out if I stay indoors for too long. The biggest reason, of course, is other people. Humans are social creatures and we are our best when we're working or playing with others. Especially cool is when you get out just to interact with strangers. Sure, some people are a bit goofy, but most are pretty cool. Especially if you get them talking about cool stuff. Stuff they like. Stuff they're planning. They say that in any economy of any type, the most valuable resource is "human capital." The skills and abilities that people have. Most people though, feel a bit of resistance when it comes to talking to strangers. A bit of anxiety. This is normal, since we've all been taught, in one way or another, that strangers are dangerous or something. But there's no rule saying that after you talk to somebody for a couple minutes that you need to keep talking to them. If they're weird or off, simply move on to somebody else. At the end of the day, the best resources we have is our relationships. The more you can build, the more you'll see in how many ways knowing different people can make life much more enjoyable. Especially when you share your unique gifts, so they feel lucky to know YOU. Click Here To Learn How
  6. Whenever you start off on any kind of project, especially if it's a long project, momentum is important. Take somebody who starts to exercise, after having been a couch potato for many years. The first couple weeks pretty much suck. It's hard to start, and it's hard to keep going. Whether you're riding on a stationary bike, going for a walk or jog outside, or doing some calisthenics, part of your brain is screaming bloody murder. After all, it's pretty insane, on one level, to do something that is painful, without a clear goal in sight. Sure, if you are hiking up a steep mountain, you can see the top is getting closer and closer, so you push yourself to keep going. But if you're just running laps around your neighborhood, part of your brain is wondering what in the world is going on. But if you keep at it, you'll eventually get to a tipping point. Where the immediate benefits outweigh the costs. However, a lot of people give up before that point. We tend to have a hard time seeing benefits unless their right in front of us. Unfortunately, even if you've been diligently exercising for a while, if you stop for a certain length of time, getting started is difficult. A lot of things are like that. They take a lot of effort to get going, and you need to put in a lot of effort to keep going. But some things aren't. Some things may take a while to "set up" or to get the benefit, but once you get it, you've got it. You don't need to do any more work. Sure, you may be a little "rusty," but once you've got it down, you can pick it up again. Like playing a musical instrument, for example. Once you put in the time and effort to learn it, it won't take very long to pick it up again if you haven't played in a while. Another thing that is like this is social skills. Or at least they can be. Unfortunately, many people see social skills as something that requires a lot of momentum. Because most of us have social anxiety of some kind, we think we need to keep "pushing past" our fears and anxieties. And like exercise, if we stop for any length of time, it can take a lot of effort to get started again. Luckily there's another way. It involves changing the way you see things, and verifying that these new paradigms are much more effective than the old ones. And once you set those up, you'll have it for life. Fearless social confidence and interpersonal skills that will take you a long, long way. Click Here To Learn How
