  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan_07Post.mp4 One cool element of storytelling is when they go "meta." In the terms of covert hypnosis, this is called "blurred realities." One way to use blurred realities is with the quotes pattern. You tell a story about a couple of guys. One is talking to the other guy and says something silly. But when you "quote" the guy saying the silly thing, you look directly at your friend, or the audience. It's called a quotes pattern because you are quoting somebody else. But it's also a blurred reality because the listener
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan05Post.mp4 A very useful skill is to be able to "go meta." Meaning look at the big picture, outside yourself. And as objective as you can. For example, it's very EASY to see the biases in others, but hard in ourselves. It's easy to see somebody else trapped in a dangerous relationship or habit, but very hard to spot in ourselves. Going meta is also another way to find out, or at least get closer, to some very "eternal" questions. Questions like, "why are we here" or "what is our purpose." For example, suppose there
  3. 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.
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov01Post.mp4 Imagine if you were watching your favorite cooking show. And you get inspired, and wanted to cook something fantastic. So you went into your kitchen, ready to rock. But the only raw ingredients you had were half a jar of mayonnaise, two moldy pieces of cheese, and some leftover takeout from three weeks ago. Or how about this goofy idea. Suppose you were out wandering around and stumbled into a Home Depot weekend class about how to build a deck in your back yard. The teacher was charismatic and inspiring. Th
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct31Post.mp4 The story of rubber is pretty interesting. Vulcanize rubber was invented twice, at least. Not really invented, but discovered. Vulcanized, or hardened rubber is useful. The sticky sappy stuff that comes out of trees, not so much. It was first discovered by the Aztecs. They described it as the semen from a flower mixed with the blood of a tree. Or something like that. But then when their civilization collapsed, so did the secrets or rubber. If you've seen the movie "The Lost City of Z," it's got a
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct30Post.mp4 I've always loved movies. Most of them suck, but some a pretty good. Particularly the way the ones make you think. And within the ones that make you think, I've found two basic kinds. Where you're left with a kind of puzzle, and you need to solve it. And you can solve it by asking questions like: "What did that final scene mean?" An example is the last scene from Inception. Was he still dreaming, or was he awake? This is one scene that can be interpreted in many ways. And like a well written
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct29Post.mp4 One of the reasons we love fiction so much is it's much more entertaining that regular life. From a purely instinctive standpoint, ancient stories and archetypes served to give us something to live up to. This same idea showed in Dale Carnegie's books and trainings. If you want to motivate somebody to do something, give them a positive idea or image to live up to. Imagine little cave kids sitting around a fire. They're listening to the old storyteller tell another story about hero's and monsters. They hero kills
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct28Post.mp4 Imagine if you had to play in a golf tournament. And if you won, you got a bunch of money. But if you didn't come in the top ten, you had to pay a bunch of money. BUT, the only club you could use would be a nine iron. Even if you don't like golf, never want to know anything about golf, you probably know that certain clubs are for certain situations. So being restricted to one club, a nine iron, (only good for short distances) would make it pretty difficult. Or suppose you were a pitcher, (this is gonna be a mess
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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 strate
  13. 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 crea
  14. 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 peopl
  15. 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 t
  16. 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 dog
  17. 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.
  18. 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 fo

  20. 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

  22. 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 ref
  23. 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 F

  25. 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 th
