  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July10Post.mp4 Humans are incredible complex creatures. About two million years ago, we discovered fire. And this changed everything. Before fire, we had to hunt like every other animal. Find something to eat, and chase it until we caught it. One theory is that this strategy is why we developed sweaty, hairless bodies and arched feet. Arched feet so we could run long distances without messing up our knees and hips. Sweaty, hairless bodies so we could bleed off body heat. The only way animals can get rid of body heat is to stop and pant. (Or maybe jump into a river) But since we can sweat, we run really slowly, for a LONG TIME. Animals can sprint, but not very far. They'll have to stop and pant, to get rid of body heat. This gave us an advantage over animals, but it was only a PHYSICAL advantage. Running after a deer for a couple hours until you finally caught it didn't require any brainpower. Fire changed all that. For one, fire was the first time we could purposely use, and direct, energy OUTSIDE of our body. And this helped us to hunt. The pre-historical quarterback would call the plays. Send a bunch of guys to the far end of the forest. Send your best spear throwers on the other end of the forest. The first guys would light the forest on fire. The animals would run away from the fire. Toward the waiting spear throwers. This happened about two million years ago. That's also when our brains started growing really fast. Before, it was essentially a running contest. The longest, most endurance, runners survived. But with fire, came strategizing. Testing the wind, guessing what kinds of animals were in the forest, AND being able to communicate what WOULD happen. It's one thing to talk about what we can SEE. "See that animal over there? Run after it, catch it, kill it, bring it back." It takes WAY more brain power to talk about what MIGHT happen. To think about all the things that might go wrong. And to communicate possible ways to OVERCOME those things that might go wrong. Whoever could do this the BEST, was the leader or the tribe. And the leader of the tribe would get the most sex, and have the most kids. This went on for two million years. And because of this ABSTRACT THINKING contest, this STRATEGIZING CONTEST, our brains tripled in size. And this strategy is STILL with us today. Look out into the world. Figure out what you want. Think of all the ways to get it. Think of all the possible obstacles that might pop up. Choose the best ones, and GET IT. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/obstacle-obliteration/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July09Post.mp4 Your brain is an incredible machine. Many people believe that self aware, AI is just around the corner. Consider that this is not likely. Sure, if you tell a good story about your AI company, you'll get a lot of attention. A lot of venture capital funding. From rich guys hoping to put their brains inside a computer before they die. But consider that just the process of reverse engineering our brain is next to impossible. Here's an example to illustrate why. Imagine you had a sales page. You sold shoes. And your sales page had a 2% conversion rate. Meaning every hundred visitors got you two sales. OK, but you wanted to do better. So you did a split test. You copied that original sales page (called the "A" page) and made on tiny change. This is the "B" page. And you sent half the traffic to the A page, and half to the B page. The B page with the one tiny change, but otherwise identical to the A page. The first money question: Before the split test, do you KNOW which page would do better? Nope. So you run the test, to see which page wins, A or B. Suppose B wins. A has a conversion rate of 2%. B has a conversion rate of 2.5%. So you do it again. B is now the new A. So you make another, new B, with one tiny change. Again, do you know which will win? Nope. And suppose you did this for THREE YEARS. And each test ran for one week. And every other test, the B page was better than the A page. That meant every two weeks, you'd get a slight improvement. And let's imagine that after 3 years you had a 20% conversation. Now for the BIG money question. Suppose some goof came along and wanted to reverse engineer your page that was converting at 20%. Would they be able to? No way. Impossible. Why? Because every single time you did a split test, before the test, you had ZERO IDEA which would win. Which meant every time you had a winner, (A vs. you would have zero idea WHY that page won. So, the question, of how is that new page, after three years of split testing, converting so highly? The honest answer is you would have ZERO IDEA. So it would be IMPOSSIBLE for somebody to reverse engineer that winning sales page and apply it to another market. That's what AI goofs are trying to do when they reverse engineer our brains and turn them into a computer. Our brains are the result of MILLIONS of years of "split tests." Organically done by Mother Nature herself. This is why AI is very, very, unlikely. But what is likely is much, much better. Not to copy your brain. But to re-calibrate it. So it works MUCH BETTER in our modern environment. This is just ONE of the many, many benefits of your genius brain. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/obstacle-obliteration/
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July08Post.mp4 One of the presuppositions of NLP is that having more flexibility is better than having less flexibility. This generally refers to problem solving. Getting stuck is common. Getting frustrated when you are stuck is also common. But with enough flexibility of thinking, getting stuck won't ever last long. The opposite of flexible thinking is the "tell me what to do" attitude. This IS a very compelling idea. To have a problem, and have somebody tell you what to do. This is essentially a human instinct. A combination of social proof and authority. A common response most everybody has when facing a problem is to look around for an authority figure to tell you what to do. Consider that stronger this instinct is, the less likely you'll BE the authority figure. One side of this spectrum is pure, "tell me what to do" energy. Pure helplessness. Zero flexibility of thinking. On the other side is "let me figure this out" energy. Maximum flexibility of thinking. Zero helplessness. Both are very useful. If you are building a team to conquer as specific task, then you would much rather have a bunch of intelligent order followers. The last thing you want is a bunch of people always trying to figure out different ways to do things. They even made a TV show like this. They purposely chose a few very high alpha type males. Then they gave them a collective task of rebuilding an engine. EVERYBODY wanted to be in charge. This kind of thing rarely happens organically. Most of the time, most people will ALWAYS look around for somebody to tell them what to do. Most people don't like to think. Thinking is hard work. Most people don't like to take on more responsibility. Responsibility creates a lot of stress. So when a problem comes up, most of us will EAGERLY look for somebody to tell us what to do. No brain energy required. No anxiety and responsibility required. This is fine most of the time. When you ONLY want to get over the problem as quickly as possible. When is it NOT a good idea? When you are trying to make a good impression on somebody. This is why job interviews PURPOSELY ask really weird questions. They aren't really interested in the answer. They are interested to see how you handle the unexpected. Do you freak out? Or do you work out the issue? This is also a why women INSTINCTIVELY test males. To see how they handle unexpected statements. Having a strong sense of flexibility will help you in both cases. Of seeing something unexpected pop up, and EASILY dealing with it. The more flexibility of thinking you develop, the MORE you'll stand out in more situations. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/creativity/
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July07Post.mp4 Curiosity is a very powerful persuasive tool. Some sales pages for the most goofy sounding ideas work because they create curiosity. Some cheap plastic gizmo that promises to give you X-ray vision, or help you travel back and forth through time will sell. Not because people will actually think it will work. But if they make it sound compelling enough, if the sales page is interesting enough, and it's cheap enough, people will buy it just to see what the deal is. This is a long standing and proven marketing strategy. They even did a study of this on crayons. Both crayons were for sale, side by side. Same exact color, chemical components, etc. One was called "Tangerine Orange." This evoked ZERO curiosity. Tangerines are orange. This crayon is orange. I get it. This creates very little buying interest. But the other crayon was called "millennium orange." (This was back around 2000). When people saw THIS crayon, it "hooked" their brain a little bit more. People saw the tangerine orange and that didn't require ANY thinking to comprehend. But the other one, people HAD to stop and stare at and wonder why the heck it was called millennium orange. Just spending this extra brain time triggered an instinctive response. One that says: "I can't figure this out. This is really interesting!" The same response to X-Ray glasses and mental time machines. If you've even given away too much too soon in a relationship, you've KILLED this effect. Being too available, revealing too much. Everybody likes a little bit of MYSTERY. We like to WONDER about things. We like to THINK about things. We have a kind of "meta curiosity" interest in things we don't understand. We apply this "meta curiosity" in many ways that keeps our brains interested. Movies with twist endings, jokes with unexpected punch lines, even straight up puzzles. We LOVE to wonder about stuff. We LOVE things that seem to be more confusing that we first thought. More complex than we first thought. When you reveal too much, too soon, this creates the OPPOSITE effect. Like a movie that is boring that is predictable. Nobody likes those kinds of movies. Nobody likes those kinds of people. At least not when thinking about initial attraction and having fun. Sure, there is a time to be predictable and boring. Taking care of business, doing your job. But when having fun, meeting people, creating relationships, BE MYSTERIOUS. Be complex. Don't be boring.

  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July06Post.mp4 They say that our memories can't distinguish between a false memory and real memory. There is plenty of data to support this. For example, most of our memories are false anyhow. But these false memories drive our behaviors, as if they are real. This usually involves how we give intentions to actors in our mind. We remember the behavior, the things others did or said. But we tend to imagine the worst case intentions behind those words or actions. But this false memory idea also works when you purposely create false memories. A famous study was done on basketball players. They separated them into three groups. One practiced normally. One didn't practice. One practiced, but only mentally. For the same duration as the real practice people, this third group only imagined practicing. But the real practice group and the imaginary practice group improved about the same. As you'd expect, the non practice group didn't. But there is a very clever way to leverage this "fake" memory idea. People judge other people quickly and subconsciously. Most of this has to do with the strength of our frame. This has to do with our level of confidence in any particular situation. On a very deep, very subconscious, and very ancient level, we are very attracted to folks who have a strong belief that they can handle themselves. We feel the opposite of attraction around strangers who exhibit the opposite. Of not having any clue what to do. This is essentially the difference between having a strong frame and a weak frame. But most of us are not really either extreme. Not super charismatic cult leaders. But not helpless wallflowers hiding in the corner. So people need to interact with us to get more data. To see if they are attracted to us, or not. Beyond first impressions, how we handle ourselves conversationally is the next level of determination. This is where "fake memories" can come in helpful. If you have a lot of real memories, of interacting with real people, in a lot of real situations, that will come across how you speak. From a purely organic standpoint, people have creativity based on how much they've passively soaked up from others. If you've been stuck inside a room your whole life, only watching reruns of "Leave it to Beaver," your language will reflect that. But if you have a lot of interpersonal experience, your language will reflect that. Normally this is all done organically. You develop creativity organically. You "sense" for creativity in others organically. But you can build creativity consciously, deliberately, and consistently. Which will add to your natural attraction and frame strength. And the cool thing about creativity is it increases exponentially. Giving you a huge advantage. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/creativity/
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July05Post.mp4 One of the biggest myths of modern society is where money comes from. This is definitely a conspiracy theory that is true. Most people have a belief that money comes from the government. That it is a reward for good behavior. Like when we're kids, and we do our chores, and we get an allowance. On a much deeper level, this childhood view of the world is why most folks have such a hard time. We believe so long as we do what we are "supposed" to, we will get a reward. This is a common complaint among people whose lives aren't what they expected. I did what I was told. I did was I was supposed to. Where's my reward? This is an extremely painful idea to accept. That our society is run by folks who really don't care about us as much as they pretend to. But if you step back a bit and study history, this has always been the case. In fact, one historian has the opinion that ALL LEADERS from all societies had a very common way of getting money. And that was to TAKE IT. From their neighbors, and from their citizens. Everybody else has to work for a living. Meaning they have to DO THINGS that others voluntarily pay them for. These guys are the creators. The inventors. Edison is famous for being an inventor, but he was more of a businessman. Even the most famous, modern musicians, who are thought to be artists, creators of music and lyrics, are ALSO very shrewd businesspeople. Consider that in order to become a world famous rock star, you MUST have music skills, and you must have business skills. The starving artist, on the other hand, has artistic, creative skills, but not a lot of business skills. What does all of this have to do with anything? One is that we do live in a messed up society. And if you are lucky, and happen to have a job that pays well and is guaranteed in some way by dudes in charge, that's good. Count your lucky stars. But most people don't. But that's OK. You still have a brain. You will have your ancient instincts of creativity and money making. Why these two? Because every single thing that was ever invented was done for ONE reason. To get paid. Even way back in the day, before they knew how to fix longitude, the British Government knew they couldn't do it. So they created a big, fat, monetary reward. This is why everything around you was once an idea in somebody's brain. But the process that transformed it from a thought to a thing was a desire to GET PAID. All you need is two basic brain ingredients. One, an idea, any idea. Any idea that is BETTER than most of the junk out there. And two, your ancient desire. The desire that says: "If I can turn this thought into a thing, I can make a TON of money." Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/creativity/
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July04Post.mp4 Most people are familiar with the plateau idea. If you've ever done any kind of exercise, you've experienced this. When you first start any kind of physical based sport or activity, the gains in the beginning come pretty quickly. You put in X amount of effort and get Y amount of gains. The plateau comes when you are putting in the same X amount of effort, but the gains, Y, are getting less and less. This can be maddening, especially if you have a particular target in mind. The time it will take to get to your target is a function of your daily gains, or Y. And when you start, you tend to underestimate how long it will get there. You want to lose fifty pounds, for example. Week one, you put in X amount of effort, and you lose two pounds. Cool, you think. Twenty five weeks, and I've hit my target. But after a month or two, you're STILL putting in the same weekly time and effort, but now you're only losing ONE pound per week. This means your goal is now further out in the future. This is the plateau that everybody has problems with. There are plenty of strategies and mental techniques to deal with this. This type of idea shows up pretty much everywhere. Health, money, relationships, career, etc. Put in a little effort, get some results. Based on the efforts and the results, we extrapolate. Only to later find out we underestimated the time it is going to take. This is even a function of natural selection and evolution. They call it "punctuated equilibrium." A species will unchanged for a LONG time. Then something drastic will happen, and they'll go through tons of changes in a very short time. This is also what happens when you learn to "love the plateau" as many recommend. Instead of focusing on the end point, just learn to love the journey. And allow those sudden shifts described by "punctuated equilibrium" to show up whenever they show up. This is a fine strategy. A very useful, life long, self development strategy for nearly every area of life. Why, "nearly"? There's one area where this doesn't hold true. And that is in the realm of human inventions. These are a function of human creativity. We look out into the world, and see a bunch of stuff. We imagine better stuff, and make it happen. Every time anybody does this, the "stuff" out there changes. This means the stuff that exists in the world, the stuff that was first an idea in somebody's brain, doesn't follow the "punctuated equilibrium" theory. It's more like a continuously increasing EXPLOSION of stuff. What is an economic description of stuff? Wealth. What do you GET when continue to create more and more wealth? Money. A TON of money. This is what your brain is capable of. Every single day, there is more "stuff" out there to use as raw material. To CREATE better things. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/creativity/
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July03Post.mp4 One cool movie about the entrepreneurial spirit is a true story called "Ingenious." It's got plenty of "truisms" built in about inventions, genius, etc. It shows in perfect detail what it means that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. The movie is about two guys. They both wanted to get rich. Neither could stand a normal job. So their dream was to invent something, and make millions. Which they did. When they movie started out, they were making these custom watches. Watches with dogs on the faces, golf clubs or tennis rackets for the hands. They kept trying different goofy gadgets. They had their man in China who would make them for $1 a piece, and they would try and sell them for $5 a piece. Their idea was simple. Keep trying things. All they need is ONE idea to hit big, and they'd be rich. If one thing sold in the millions, that would be enough. Make it for $1 a piece, sell it for $5 a piece. A simple plan. One that panned out. They almost got divorced to their wives along the way. They almost got scammed out of everything. But that simple plan paid off in the end. Keep inventing simple, cheap to make things. If one sells big, they get rich. The thing that did eventually make them their millions? A cheap, mostly plastic bottle opener. With a small chip and a small speaker built it. So when you opened a bottle of beer, you would hear Homer Simpson's voice say, "Mmmm... Beer!" Now, plenty of people can think up something like that. You don't need to have an advanced degree in ANYTHING to put those two ideas together. Opening a bottle of beer, and Homer Simpson's voice. But what usually comes AFTER a thought like that is: "Yeah, that won't work because of..." And then we fill in the blanks with our imaginations of why we won't be successful. Even WORSE is when we believe our own self deceptions. For example, suppose you had the idea for a Homer Simpson bottle opener. But then you thought: "Yeah, but we'd get sued, and end up broke." If you BELIEVE that, you'll get stuck. But you'll blame the CONTENT of that idea for keeping you stuck. You'll start to think if it WASN'T for all the lawyers, you'd be rich. This is our super genius brain working AGAINST ourselves. But those two guys who became millionaires DIDN'T listen to their excuses. They ignored, the common: "It won't work because..." Idea. Instead, they had an OPPOSITE idea. One that says this: "Yeah, it probably won't work. But what if it DOES?" If you let THAT thought lead you, where will you end up?

  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July02Post.mp4 Once, a long, long time ago, I was in elementary school. Our teacher gave us this math problem. Kind of like a puzzle. She said the first one that finished would get a prize. So, I raced through, got the answer, but was pretty sure I'd finished first. I looked around at all the other kids, and they were still working. But I also had a huge crush on my teacher. So I hesitated. Some other kid raises his hand, and got tons of praise from the teacher. While I sat there, silently cursing myself. Mark Twain famously said the difference between people who can't read, and can but don't, is nothing. I was the first one finished, but only I knew about it. Which means as far as everybody else is concerned I wasn't the first one finished. If you can read, but never do, then you're not much different than people who can't. Some of the most important inventions in the history of the human race are very, very simple. For example, men fought on horses LONG BEFORE anybody got the idea of a stirrup. But those who had the idea of a stirrup suddenly had a HUGE advantage. The guy who came up with the formula for Coca Cola way back in the day made a FORTUNE. The recipe was pretty simple. Sugar, carbonation, some flavoring. I had a friend that was a musician as a hobbyist, but would always complain that such simple songs made tons of money for their writers. Most ideas are very, very simple. So simple, everybody asks themselves: "Why didn't I think of that?" Even worse, is people use my elementary school strategy. People have a simple idea and make tons of money. Other people look at that same idea and think: "Dude, I thought of that same thing!" The difference between rich creative geniuses and sideline creative geniuses is very much like Twain's statement. The skill of coming up with a million dollar idea DOESN'T depend on the idea itself. It CAN'T. Otherwise, their "brilliant" ideas would be to complex for everybody to appreciate and enjoy. The difference is very, very simple. To take those same simple ideas that YOU have, inside your brain and write them down. Get them out on paper. Because you do have SO MANY ideas, if you write one down every couple days or so, pretty soon you'll find one that's worth following up on. Then you can get to work, and turn your ideas something REAL. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/creativity/
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May24Post.mp4 After the Industrial Revolution, the guys running things had a problem. There were all kinds of factories being built. People from the boonies were flocking to the cities. Henry Ford was one of these guys. Bored on the farm, he went to the city to find work. This is essentially how all cities are built. A couple of people start building and selling stuff to each other. The more people there are, the more opportunities they are. A historian drew an interesting parallel between this phenomenon and the formation of stars. Once upon a time, there was only dust floating around the universe, after the big bang. Pretty soon gravity started pulling these clouds of dust closer and closer. This is how stars and solar systems were formed. Civilizations are kind of built the same way. You start off with a bunch of nomads out all wondering around. Somebody settles down and stars growing stuff. Others come in and set up other endeavors. This creates a kind of "gravity" that pulls others closer and closer in. Pretty soon you got a big city. Eventually, these collapse, just like stars will eventually supernova. This happened throughout history. Until the Industrial Revolution. Now they had WAY more people. Way more endeavors. This kind of presented a problem. If you have a slow trickle of people, over a few hundred years, coming into a slowly growing city, that's OK. The people find people who'll train them. But the Industrial Revolution needed people trained FAR quicker and in FAR greater number than ever before. This is when mass education was created. One way to describe "schools" are as factories that produce factory workers. Basic math, English, etc. That is essentially what schools are today. They teach you the very basics. For the longest time, that was enough. Go through the factor worker factory, and find your place. Today, the world is changing VERY rapidly. Those who don't notice, or who don't WANT to notice, will get left behind. Today, you've to take control of your brain. You've got to take control of your skills and your choices. Nobody is going to do that for you. Luckily, we all come pre-programmed with some basic skills. See, this is how life was BEFORE the Industrial Revolution. Like Henry Ford, when you decided to head off to the city, you had to make your own choices. Make your own decisions. Take responsibility for learning enough to make a living. This is the way it has ALWAYS been. Which means all you need to do is re-discover how. Get Started: https://mindpersuasion.com/money-magnet/

  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar03Post.mp4 A lot of inventions have come in dreams. The guy who figured out the structure of Benzene had a dream of a snake eating his tail. The guy who invented the sewing machine had a dream of being chased in a jungle with the natives throwing spears with holes in the tips. A common, and very useful piece of advice is to think of a problem while falling asleep. Not in terms of, "poor me, this problem is going to kill me." But in terms of, "I wonder how I can solve this..." Somehow, while sleeping, your subconscious will come up with a solution. Being a creative thinker is a very positive skill to have. Being a problem solver is a very lucrative skill to have. Most people are content to go along with the flow. Plenty of experiments indicate 70% of us are content to let others do our thinking for us. The Milgram experiment showed 70% of people who shock an innocent percent only upon the word of an authority figure. The Asch conformity test showed that 70% of people will go along with the crowd even when they know the crowd is wrong. Whenever a problem pops up and needs to be solved, most people look around for somebody ELSE to solve it. This is normal, this is natural, this is instinctive. This is how humans survived for millions of years, even before we were humans. We are self-organizing, hierarchical primates. But guess what? There's not a lot of money in following the crowd. You won't get a lot of action by staying safely in the middle of the pack. On the other hand, if you are a known problem solver, people will defer to you when something bad goes down. If you are known as a creative thinker, you'll be the one they turn to when they need solutions. How can you build your creative muscle? How can you build your problem solving muscle? By practicing the structure of thought. Most people see a problem, and the best they can do, when thinking of a solution is somehow making the problem vanish. Or thinking in pure opposite terms of the problem. This is very linear, and very basic. They see A causing B, and they see that B is bad. Their only solution is to GET RID of A, whatever A is. Luckily there are plenty of other ways to tackle this. By doing drills that build in different thinking and speaking patterns. The more you do, the more creative you'll become. The more creative you become, the more you'll be the person others defer to. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/tongue-fu/

  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct04Post.mp4 The stone age ended and the bronze age started when ancient humans figured out how to use metal. Most historians figured it was by accident. Most groundbreaking discoveries are by accident. Most of the tech inventions of the 70's were unexpected byproducts of the space race in the late 60's. Bronze and other metals exist as ore. Mixed in with rocks. They suspect that somebody had a fire, like they normally did. And they found that part the rock melted out when it got hot. And reformed. And the reformed metal was pretty hard. Up to that point in human history, if they wanted a sharp blade, it would take a LOT of time. They had to find the right kind of rock. And spend a few days sharpening it. And even then it was only partially effective. You would have to tie it to a stick to make a weapon. But once they figured out how to find this ore that they could melt into weapons and tools, it changed everything. Later, they figured out how to mix different kinds of metal to make even STRONGER metal. This first discovery, or first few, were pretty much random accidents. But then this led to a "meta" discovery. If rocks can be used in ways nobody ever expected, what kinds of other things can be used in ways nobody ever expected? This led to random experiments to just to see what might happen. Most of these were utter failures. Even Isaac Newton liked the idea of alchemy. The idea of turning dirt into gold. But the IDEA of alchemy later turned into chemistry. Of mixing stuff together, in hopes of finding out what might happen. There is a common root in both words. Chem. If thousands of people are trying random things, you only need a few advancements each generation to keep the creativity party going. Writing is another "meta" discovery. Writing allowed the people at the end of the dark ages to read and understand what the ancient Greeks had already discovered. Discoveries, both planned and accidental, both meta and non-meta, have propelled humans from the stone age to today. What idea has NOT been present during all this? What mindset will absolutely KEEP YOU from taking part in this non stop party of human creativity? The idea that somebody ELSE is supposed to take care of you. The idea that somebody ELSE is supposed to do your thinking for you. The idea that somebody ELSE is supposed to tell you what you do. Use your brain, unlock your potential, and join the party.

  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug07Post.mp4 Humans have a dreaming instinct. Way back in the day, those that laid awake at night dreaming about big things were the most successful. Everything that we have was once an idea. Not an idea that somebody happened to stumble upon. But an idea that DROVE its inventor nearly insane with desire until he or she finally created it. This is a unique human characteristic. Monkeys crave bananas. Dolphins crave fish. But humans crave MORE. We want MORE than we have. This is not a bug. This is a FEATURE. When we humans allow this never ending desire for MORE drive our actions, we are capable of amazing things. But only if we PURSUE those things. Not just for a couple days. Not only when it's convenient. But ceaselessly. This is the PERSPIRATION they talk about when they say genius is 1% INSPIRATION and 99% PERSPIRATION. The one percent exists as an idea in your brain. The 99% exists as your ceaseless behavior, sometimes for YEARS to turn that thought into a thing. One thing that will DESTROY your gift of dreaming and creating is any belief that it SHOULD be easy. Or it SHOULD be anything other than what it is. This is what separates the great humans from the rest of the lazy goofs. Most of wish it different. We say things SHOULD be different. Those other people SHOULDN'T be doing that. The inventors, the creators, the geniuses use their lives not to wish, but to TRANSFORM. They won't wait around for others to make it easy. They won't wait for permission. They don't wait for a guarantee. They won't wait for others to go first, to prove it's safe. They are DRIVEN by the ideas in their brain. Once upon time, there was nothing on Earth but a bunch of primitive humans and some dirt. Now look at all the stuff we have. All of the stuff was once and in the mind of its creator. A potential we all have. A potential YOU have. But that potential doesn't drive itself. The PURPOSE of your ideas is to DRIVE YOU. To turn those ideas into things. Things that will get you paid. Things that will get you the massive social recognition you were put here for. If you're waiting for a step by step plan, or a guarantee, or somebody to hold your hand and show you how it's done, you'll be waiting a while. The choice is yours. Master your mind-body system, and build your empire. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/watching-mind/

  17. There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to making money. A common idea is that all you need is an "idea." But the truth is that ideas are only a beginning. A small seed that MAY turn into a fortune. This is the idea behind the saying, "genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration." People like things like scavenger hunts. When I was a kid we had those. Adult also enjoy doing this. Only as adults, it's much more complex, and much more rewarding. Geocaching, where you essentially use the entire EARTH to have treasure hunts. What does this have to do with money and genius? Think of going on an adventure. A geocaching adventure. You and a few buddies have taken some time off work. You're going to canvas a huge area looking for a few hidden pieces of treasure. You find the treasure, leave some of your own for the next group. This takes time. This takes effort. This takes thinking. But it's FUN. Making money COULD be the same. The EXACT same. You keep trying different combinations. You keep learning new skills. Making more money with each iteration. This is, potentially, even BETTER than treasure hunting. Because in money making, the closer (or further along) you get, the more money you make. The "perspiration" in that saying (1% inspiration, 99% perspiration) is ENJOYABLE perspiration. Your mind is on fire with excitement. Your body is on fire with energy, getting closer and closer to the breakthrough. This is the stereotypical scientist in his lab for days, losing track of time. This is how making your fortune COULD be. But for most people, it's not. Since making money generally involves getting out there and interacting with strangers. Something most people are TERRIFIED of doing. So we like to FANTASIZE that all we need is an "idea." And once we have an idea, then somebody else will buy it from us, and do all the work. But if you look at some of the biggest fortunes in the past few decades or so, most of ideas are pretty basic. In fact, most ideas pass through something called "survivorship bias." Most fortunes are made like this. Start out a TON of ideas. Keep trying them out until ONE of them "hits." And that ONE idea is going to make your fortune. If you look at it AFTER the fact, it seems easy. We say, "Damn, I could have thought of that!" And you CAN. But thinking of ideas is only the beginning. Trying them out, again and again, until you succeed is where the money is made. And this WILL feel like an exciting adventure once you get rid of your limiting money beliefs. In fact, this is the most exciting thing you can do as a human. It combines ALL your positive skills. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/
  18. I read an interesting article the other day. About strange ways to make money. For example, you can make $400 a month selling plasma. Or, if you qualify, (which is hard according to the article) you can make a few grand a month selling your sperm. Another goofy article talked about a woman who makes $40K a year being a professional "cuddler." Kind of a strange job, but it doesn't seem to take much. Except being able to cuddle strangers all day. If you look, you can find plenty of ways to make money. These are just a couple strange ideas that I noticed recently. But you won't find them if you don't look. Unfortunately, having negative money beliefs will keep you from seeing what is out there. This comes across via cognitive dissonance. Our subconscious won't let us notice something that contradicts our beliefs about ourselves. The most common limiting belief about money is a feeling of unworthiness. This is not something that we can consciously recognize. In fact, quite the opposite. We ONLY do things that are inside our comfort zone. And our comfort zone is defined but what we feel worthy doing. We don't feel worthy outside of our comfort zone. But even ADMITTING that we feel unworthy is nearly impossible. Our subconscious does plenty of mental gymnastics to keep us safe. But if you SLIGHTLY decrease your negative beliefs, and SLIGHTLY increase your feeling of worthiness, you will SLIGHTLY expand your comfort zone. It's KIND OF like the red car effect, but much more complicated. You don't notice any red cars until you buy one. Then you buy one and you see them everywhere. The same thing happens when you SLOWLY expand you comfort zone. You'll slowly see more money OPPORTUNITIES. Since these are opportunities, and not sacks of cash laying there in plain sight, you'll need to INTERACT with them. Sometimes this might mean talking to people whom you don't normally talk to. Or go places where you don't normally go. Or read goofy articles about selling plasma that you don't normally read. And you might even go to one of those plasma places. And guess who you'd meet? Other people who are ACTIVELY seeking interesting ways to make money. And who knows where that might lead? One thing that WON'T work is waiting around for a money, or money opportunities, to land in your lap. They're out there. But you have to look. And to see them, you need to remove your money-blinders. The limiting beliefs that ONLY allow you to see things your subconscious thinks you are worthy of. Start removing your money beliefs, and you'll see a whole new world out there.

  21. There are plenty of paradoxes in life. Some are pretty cool. On a deeper level, these aren't really paradoxes. They are a function of how our brains perceive reality. Our brains evolved to perceive macro events. Apples falling from trees, counting discretely. For example, the main reason we have a base ten number system is because we have ten fingers. But in reality, you can have any base number system you want. Way back in the day, nobody needed to write anything down. Then people stopped hunting and began farming. And this is when they needed to write stuff down. Writing down numbers meant they had to invent new ways of counting. Negative numbers, for example, were needed for accounting. But they'd never really "existed" before. And for many, they seemed to be based on black magic or something. How the heck do you have negative three bananas? But the more science we learn, the more paradoxes we discover. But these aren't really paradoxes. They are just us and our ancient brains trying to understand reality. One thing that makes a huge difference is what time frame you are looking at. All humans are programmed to avoid pain and seek pleasure. But often short term pleasure is a BAD idea. If all you did was watch TV, drink Jack Daniels, and eat Big Macs, you would feel good (maybe) in the short term, but in the long term you'd be dead. Nobody really ENJOYS getting out of bed early. At least not just to get up. We can only TRAIN ourselves to enjoy doing the hard things once we experience the good things on the other side. One thing we humans HATE is failure. Especially social failure. Taking a risk, when everybody is watching, is TERRIFYING for most people. On the other hand, all of the REALLY good stuff in life is on the OTHER SIDE of risk. You might say that taking small risks is one of the greatest skills to cultivate. How do you do this? Just do it. Start as small as you can. Get comfortable going SLIGHTLY outside your comfort zone. The more you go outside of your comfort zone, the easier it will be. Because when you get down to it, EVERYTHING that is worth getting will ALWAYS be OUTSIDE of your comfort zone.

  22. One of the most confusing things about being human is our conscious mind. We have this idea that our conscious mind is in control. Plenty of metaphors have our conscious minds as the "captain" of the ship, while our "unconscious" or "subconscious" is like a powerful child that takes commands from our captain-conscious. But in reality, it's not so simple. Especially when they hook people up to machines and measure how things happen. Scientist estimate that up to 95% of the time, our conscious mind is a LAGGING entity. Meaning our mind-body system interprets and responds to the world around us. Only AFTER our mind-body system starts to engage, then does our conscious mind figure out what's going on. The best they can guess is our conscious mind (that we think is in control) is an after-the-fact story telling device. Imagine if you were a CEO of a huge company. But something happened, and you had to bring your young son or daughter to work. Imagine they were a pretty quiet and obedient kid. So you could put them in an office, with a large window overlooking the factory, and give them a bunch of crayons and coloring books. So while you and the rest of the folks are your company were busily getting things done, your kid was in the office looking out the window and drawing pictures. And making up stories about what she saw, and incorporated those imaginations into her pictures. The factory is our mind-body system. The little kid in the office drawing pictures and making up stories is our conscious minds. This is the best guess based on data from scientists who hook people's brains up. Our consciousness, which we think is thinking and contemplating and reasoning and deducing, is really just watching things happen and making up stories. Sure, when you're doing calculus homework or building something, your conscious mind is fully engaged. But when you're doing anything else, anything that could be described as "going with the flow" your conscious is just sitting back watching things happen. Which means it is VERY EASY to overthink ANYTHING that we do. So much that if you ever catch yourself wondering what to do, you're probably thinking too much. When it comes to communicating with others, almost EVERYBODY gets it backward. Since EVERYBODY, unless they are surrounded ONLY by close friends, are ALWAYS thinking and worrying about what to say and do. So when you flip the script, back to the NATURAL way, it will be a lot easier. This takes some practice, but it's pretty easy. Because it requires practicing WITHOUT speaking. You need to re-train your conscious mind to get back in the back seat where it belongs. So the rest of you can have a lot more fun. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/communication/

  24. When I was a kid I loved playing with Legos. I had this huge drawer filled with various blocks. The cool thing about them was you could build anything. The same with Tinker Toys. They usually came in a box with a specific design, but I was never very good at following instructions. So I ended up with this humongous "junk drawer" will miscellaneous Lego and Tinker Toy pieces. Hard to imagine I could entertain myself with a bunch of plastic blocks. But never underestimate the power of the human imagination. Most animals have very specific traits. Even some have something called an "extended phenotype." The phenotype is the structure, the genotype is the genetic code or design for said structure. Like your brown eyes are the phenotype, but the part of your genes that program your brown eyes are the genotype. Some animals have an "extended" phenotype. Like bees who are programmed to build hives. Or beavers and dams. Or snails to find a specific shell. But humans have a "meta" extended phenotype. Bees always build the same hives. Since as long as bees have existed, they've built the same honeycomb shape. But humans have a meta skill. We look out at whatever exists, and build ON TOP of existing structures. This is why we keep inventing more stuff. Bees always take the same raw materials, and make the same hives. We humans look out at what IS, and imagine how we can make it BETTER. And as long as humans have been around, we've been doing this. As long as we'll BE around, we'll KEEP doing this. Unfortunately, despite this latent tendency that lives in ALL of us, very few of us put it to any use. Most of us are content to do the same stuff every day. To do what we're told, not get in trouble. But unlike bees, who are BORN into their roles (drones, workers, queens, etc.) we humans can DO or BE anything. It all starts with how you think. The thoughts that are the seeds of your actions. Which will you choose? Sameness, safeness, and mediocrity? Or greatness? Be Bold: NLP Mind Magic
  25. One thing about us humans is we are insanely flexible. One of our original "selling features" compared to all the other animals was our sexual division of labor. For every other animal except humans, males and females hunt for the same food. But humans (for whatever reason) decided to split between the sexes. Men hunted (protein and fat) and women gathered (vegetables, nuts, roots, etc). This meant we could live in TWICE as many places. Since we only needed either (hunting or gathering) this gave humans a LOT of flexibility. Nearly everything else about us is flexible as well. If you're hungry, there are TONS of things you can eat that will satisfy that hunger. If you are bored and want to watch a movie, there are THOUSANDS to choose from that will satisfy that "movie watching desire." Even if you are seeking a relationship partner, there are probably hundreds, maybe thousands of people in your area that would fit whatever your criteria are. On the flip side, you have TONS of flexibility when it comes to learning and enhancing skills. This is another curious thing about humans that no other animal shares. We are born FAR FROM being "fully developed." We not only have tons of instincts, but tons of learning capacity. Life long learning capacity. In my local neighborhood, there's a community center where retired folks learn new skills just for fun. What happens when you point your endless ability to learn toward the nearly infinite ways people can satisfy their desires? You can get paid, that's what! This is the essence of the global economy. Nearly eight BILLION people, all with two things. 1) Unlimited Desires that can all be satisfied in unlimited ways. 2) Unlimited learning ability. The more you get in the game, the more you get paid. The more you can point your skills toward the satisfying of other people's desires, or solving other people's problems, the more you'll get paid. The more you learn, the more you earn.
