  5. There are really only two ways to become successful. Consciously and unconsciously. Sounds like some goofy reframe, I know. But most people who are successful are lucky. But not in the way that most people think. Most people imagine success as one lucky "thing." Come up with one idea, invention, etc. But it's not really that way. For example, imagine there are 10,000,000 people all flipping coins. Some national contest or something. And the contest is to see who can get the most heads in a row. So they all flip. First, there's ten million. Then five million (one head). Then 2.5 million (two heads). Then 1.25 million (three heads). Then 625,000 (four heads). Then 312,500 (five heads). Then 156,250 (six heads). Then 78,125 (seven heads). Then 39,000 (eight heads). Then 19,500 (nine heads). Then 9,700 (ten heads). Then 4,800 (eleven heads). Then 2,440 (twelve heads). Then 1,220 (thirteen heads). Then 650 (fourteen heads). Then 325 (fifteen heads). Then 165 (sixteen heads). Then 82 (seventeen heads). Then 41 (eighteen heads). Then 20 (nineteen heads). Then 10 (twenty heads). Then 5 (twenty one heads). Then 2 (twenty two heads). Then 1 final winner. A winner who had flipped twenty three heads in a row. Do this "experiment" a kajillion times, starting with ten million people, and you'll get the same result every time. Now, here's the question. Do you think that lucky coin tosser would think it was ONLY luck each toss? Not likely. They probably prayed to the coin gods. Or said their favorite law of attraction chant, or something. This is the human ego. Of taking credit for RANDOM things. This is the LUCK that drives most success. A random string of events, just like twenty RANDOM coin tosses. So yes, it is very LIKELY that most success is people just kind of stumbling through life, getting lucky, and then taking credit for that luck. But since life is much more complex that tossing coins, not only do lucky person believes they "skilled", but so does everybody around them. But what about the OTHER kind of success? The conscious kind? Think about this. One thing that SIGNIFICANTLY helps the lucky people stay lucky is they REMEMBER their lucky past. But they don't remember it as being lucky. They remember them as CHOOSING their success. So even if they are WRONG with how they reference their memories, they'll be demonstrating SUCCESSFUL body language and communication and confidence. That means YOU can do the same. Just pick and choose all the successful memories from your past, whatever they are, and you'll have the SAME effect. Lucky people go through life and their subconscious memories support their self-described success. YOU go through life, and your carefully and deliberately enhanced memories will support YOUR self-defined success. And from the outside? Nobody will be able to tell the difference.

  6. A simple idea describes why we tend to have so many problems. And that is the idea of "instinct mismatch." The idea that our instincts were calibrated for a much, much different world. Hunger is the most common example. Back in the day, the rules were simple. Find something to eat. If it tasted good, eat as much of it as you could. Those that this simple, DNA programmed "eating rule" the STRONGEST would tend to survive. Those that had this unconscious urge the strongest would be more motivated to find food, more motivated to eat food, and more motivated to store energy in the form of fat. In a world where food was very, very hard to get, this was perfect. Today, it's the opposite. Which means if we BLINDLY follow this instinct, we will go in the other direction. Away from survival and toward death. Everybody knows this. Which is why everybody has SOME kind of strategy and behavior to manage this ancient instinct. Sure, some are more successful than others, but few people eat anything and everything without concern for the consequences. Another instinct is our ego. An instinct that makes us seek, maintain and demonstrate any kind of social hierarchy dominance. Sometimes this is very, very helpful. A bunch of engineers are fighting over the best solution to a technical problem. So long as they AGREE on the outcome, having an ego driven "idea contest" is a PERFECT solution. Kind of like a "brain vs. brain" cage fight. But when having wandering conversations, with NO agreed upon outcome, these can turn into FRAME battles. With friends, this is perfectly fine. But when you are meeting something knew, this is can be JUST like hunger. Blindly obeying hunger gets you into trouble. Blindly obeying your ego when trying to make a first impression will also get you into hunger. Similarly, those that are the healthiest are the BEST at managing their hunger instinct. Those that make the BEST impressions on others are the BEST at managing their ego instinct. How does this ego present itself naturally? Anything that FEELS like you think they NEED your opinion. Anything that makes you feel like you NEED to get ANY idea out of your head, and into their head. Just like the food instinct. A way to describe this would be your food instinct looks out into the world, and sees food. It gives you a nearly irresistible impulse that says: "Put that into your stomach!" Similarly, your ego instincts looks inside your head and says: "Put these ideas into their head!" Perfect in the old days. Opposite effect in modern times. But unlike the food instinct, which ALWAYS requires management, the ego instinct only needs to be managed in the very SHORT TERM. And it only takes a little bit to see the results. The other person feeling FANTASTIC. Because of you. And whenever they think of you. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/desire-builder/
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec30Post.mp4 There are three very simple, yet powerful ideas, that, when put together, will make all the difference. The first one is imagined to be good, but is really bad. The second and third are thought to be neutral, but are, in really, utterly fantastic. The first one: That is the idea of SHOULD. Most everybody has an idea of what other people SHOULD do. This is the source of all frustration, as the Buddha once said. Thinking somebody SHOULD do something, and then they don't, is frustrating. You learn a pick up line or some game, and you are told it's certain to work. So you have an intention in mind. You have a fantastic opener, witty reframe, or some other conversational strategies. You are certain they SHOULD work. But they don't. Because you were EXPECTING them to work, and they didn't, you are now angry. You actually feel CHEATED. You believed they SHOULD work so much, you started to BELIEVE you were ENTITLED to what you thought SHOULD happen. But here is TRUTH. Nobody, including you, wakes up in the morning and plans their day based on what other people thinks they (you) SHOULD do. People do things because they WANT to. Not because other people think they SHOULD. Accept this hard truth and you'll be miles ahead of everybody else. The next two are easier, much easier to understand and accept once you get rid of any "should" based expectations. And that is everybody has UNLIMITED desires. This is a fundamental assumption in basic economics. Our mind-body systems are essentially walking, talking, breathing, desire generators and desire acquisition systems. Just look inside your own brain. All the things you've wanted, and gotten in the past. The things you want and hope to get in the future. This is the second idea. What's the third idea? This is kind of related to the first, our idea of what other people SHOULD do. And this is every single person, including you, including me, LOVE our own ideas. Way more than anybody else's ideas. This is why we get frustrated when other people don't do what we think they SHOULD do. After all, you've spent your time practicing those goofy openers. Those stories that everybody on the Internet said are GUARANTEED to work. So before you try them out, that idea of what you think SHOULD happen is SO FANTASTIC. So FANTASTIC it fills up your whole brain. But if you step back and see this from an objective standpoint, you are trying to IMPOSE your reality on a complete stranger. Everybody is competing by out-should-ing each other. This means NONE of our desires get out of our brains, let alone described in any articulated way. So, flip the script. Turn OFF your ego-based "should" ideas. And ask them about their DESIRES. This will make you stand out above EVERYBODY. Learn How: https://mindpersuasion.com/desire-builder/
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun24Post.mp4 Losing weight is tough. Or it can be tough. If you've got a good reason, it can be pretty easy. This requires you have some kind of a counter balance against the desire to eat. For example, if you were going to be in a movie where you had to take off your shirt, this would be a pretty decent motivator. You imagine the short term pleasure of eating a big plate of chili cheese fries. But that short term, NOW, pleasure is immediately outweighed by both the positive and negative implications. IF you DO enjoy the fries, the idea of looking like a fat slob in the movie where you take your shirt off will be RIGHT THERE. On the other hand, if you are a famous Hollywood actor who half the young ladies in the world fantasize about, THAT thought will be enough to counter balance the short term, fries pleasure. Since most of us don't have that kind of counter balance, it's MUCH harder to lose weight. Many other things work the same way. Some things are difficult in the short term, but the benefits on the other side of are MASSIVE. This is how we developed acquired tastes. Nobody really enjoys the taste of coffee the FIRST TIME they drink it. But once you get the coffee buzz, that feels good. And we naturally, and subconsciously associate the coffee buzz with the taste. The same with alcohol. And many other acquired tastes. Most of these things have the support of social proof. If you're at a party, and everybody is drinking alcohol, you'll be compelled to try it. It will taste like crap, but then you feel that nice, comfortable buzz. Pretty soon you are a wine and beer connoisseur. But some things don't have any social proof. But they are VERY powerful. And offer an enormous amount of rewards. What kind of rewards? Social, sexual, emotional, romantic. The short term "unpleasant" thing you need to power through is your own ego. We all have an ego. Our ego is that thing that makes us interrupt others. Our ego is the part of us that is ALWAYS running in the background, trying to think of something BETTER so say. For most of us, the only time our ego shuts up is if we are TOO NERVOUS. This is when have those uncomfortable silences. But if you can quite down your ego without the nervousness, this is when the magic happens. First, you turn off your ego. Then you focus your brain on the other person. Then you use some very simple conversational techniques to ask questions about them. Questions that make them feel FANTASTIC. Do this for a few minutes, and they will naturally associate those good feelings with YOU. Do this enough, and they'll LITERALLY start to fall in love with you.

  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr03Post.mp4 A very common trope in romantic movies is the guy or gal who "gets" the other guy or gal. This is the opposite of another common romantic movie trope. That when two people are getting closer and closer, one of them is TERRIFIED that the other person will find out who they REALLY are. And when this happens, it's over. These are two sides of the same coin. The coin of who we really are on the inside. The fear side is us being TERRIFIED of being "found out" and forever rejected. The best-case-scenario side is them seeing our true selves and not only fully accepting this, but embracing us BECAUSE of this. This is the famous, "you get me" line that all hopeless romantics are looking for. The good news is that EVERYBODY feels this way. Everybody has deep fears of being "found out" and being rejected forever. This fear is built into all humans. Which means it's based on a false premise. But you don't have to do any kind of deep emotional healing to get rid of this. Why? Because there is a very easy, and very powerful way to GET pretty much anybody. And when you learn how to GET pretty much anybody, they will NEVER want to leave you no matter what. Doesn't matter if they are friends, lovers, or even business partners. Since so many people never really "get" anybody, you will stand out. You will be one among millions who GET those close to them. How? It's a pretty easy. First, it begins with understanding how humans think. The structure of our thoughts. The structure of our fears and desires. This may sound pretty complicated. And it IS if you force yourself to see the world through your own, ego-based world view. But turn off your own ego, just long enough, and you'll see that EVERYBODY is very easy to understand. So when you asks simple questions about how they think, how they see the world, how they choose, YOU will stand out. You will be the one they never want to leave. You MUST, however, be careful. If you use these techniques too soon with strangers, they may fall HARD for you. This is very dangerous. Ideally, these are best used when you've already established your relationship boundaries. Friends, business partners, romantic interests, etc. But so long as you are sure, fire away. And they will NEVER want to let you out of their sight.

  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug28Post.mp4 A very common idea in self-development is being broken. Of having tried all kinds of ideas and programs, yet you're still stuck. What does, "stuck" mean, exactly? It's a metaphor that approximates a physical situation. Like a car that is stuck in the mud. The engines work, the tires work, but you aren't getting any traction. The work done by the engine is being wasted. No forward movement. Another physical description of being stuck is like when goofy criminals try to sneak in through the chimney. And get stuck. They writhe and grunt and push and wriggle, but they don't move. Another common metaphor is being "broken." Like if your car makes noise, but it doesn't quite turn over. Or your toaster has some kind of defect. This is much more common than people realize. Most people feel stuck and or broken. Quite often. But it's one of those things that we don't tend to talk about. So everybody believes it's only happening to them. Why do we feel like we are stuck or broken? The first part comes from generally success. When anybody is successful, in any area, it's MOSTLY unconscious. People that are naturally outgoing don't really know WHY they are. But our ego needs to feel like we are always in control. So if we ask them why they are so naturally outgoing, they'll feel the need to give us a conscious reason. The problem comes when we BELIEVE that conscious reason. And then WE apply that conscious reason and it DOESN'T work. Since it works for THEM, but not for US, then we must be BROKEN. Or we keep trying it, it doesn't work, and we feel stuck. But that's only because we are trying the WRONG thing. People that do things naturally and easily have NO IDEA why. But it's hard to admit that, as a normal human. Anything that we do well, our ego NEEDS to take credit. The truth is two fold. Everybody needs to DISCOVER their own way of doing things. Trying to copy others will NEVER work. We have no idea what it's like to be them. Their conscious answers don't really help, since that's NEVER the full story. The second half is that the process of discovering how to do things on our own is a LIFELONG PROCESS. This is something we DO NOT LIKE. We very much wish it were quick and easy. Because we are inherently lazy. Which is why we keep trying QUICK and EASY things. And when they don't work, we claim we are STUCK. Or broken. You're not. Take your time, go slow and learn how.

  13. There's a lot of cool hallucinations in mathematics. Way back in junior high school, I was a super-geek. I loved reading books about quantum physics. Books that had all the math taken out, but had all the cool stuff. Like the idea that a photon is sometimes a particle, and sometimes a wave. But in pure math there are some doozies. There are some shapes, that have an infinite circumference, but a finite volume. Meaning if you took a piece of string and tried to wrap it around the outside, it would go on forever. But if you measured the area inside this infinite length of string, you'd get a finite measurement. Another one is tossing a coin. If you toss a coin an infinite amount of times, something goofy would happen. The ratio (heads divided by tails) would approach 1.0. Like 1.0 with a kajillion zeros. But the difference (heads minus tails) would approach infinity. Some things are easy to think about. But the more you keep digging beneath the surface, the less they make sense. They say human knowledge is like a the shoreline of an island. The more stuff we understand, the bigger the shoreline gets. But the bigger the shoreline gets, the bigger the vast ocean representing human cluelessness gets. Clearly, we aren't built to think about things. If we had to think about EVERYTHING, we'd be stuck. Luckily, we have some built in programs to help us. Things that drive us to behave in different ways. A kind of "behavioral thermostat." But it's very easy for this behavioral thermostat to get knocked out of whack. When that happens, it not only perceives data incorrectly, but the signals it sends us are kind of messed up. We misinterpret the world around us, and the things we are driven to do are difficult, when they should be easy. If you had a thermostat in your house that was like this, it would suck. The thermostat might think it was -20 when it was really 80 degrees. So in the summer, it would keep the heat on high. If this happened, you'd call some guy to come and fix it. How can you fix your own thermostat if it's giving you wrong signals? With this: Ego Taming
  14. Everywhere you look, you'll find cycles. Earth around the sun. Moon around the Earth. Earth around it's access. Tides, seasons. Even astrological "ages" are based on the cycles built into our galaxy and solar system, as they are dependent on star configurations. Bees have their own set of cycles. They can tell when the summer solstice happens. When the suns angles reach a maximum at the maximum point of the day. Bees are good with angles. When they go out looking for food, they come back and report their findings. They fly around in a figure eight. The size and angle of the figure eight describe the size and direction of the source of food. All the hunters come back, have a quick pow-wow to see who's found the biggest treasure, and they all go off in that direction. They don't argue, or worry who's going to get credit, or make sure they won't get into trouble if their wrong. They gather, they share, they decide, they go. When they all recognize the summer solstice (from the angle of the sun) they start getting ready for winter. Automatically, collectively, unconsciously. A bee hive in winter needs to be configured much differently than a beehive in summer. All of these are unconscious and instinctive feedback signals. We humans have a ton of these as well. But due to how we are born (with brains not nearly as big as they'll be when they are fully developed) we also have a ton of learning. On top of that, we have a conscious mind. We think, we have instincts, and we can learn new instincts. When these three systems are working in harmony, there is NOTHING we cannot do. Especially when you've got a group of like minded people together. Land on the moon? No problem. Split the atom? No problem. But this isn't guaranteed. We also do a lot of less than cool things. Both as groups and as individuals. As individuals, it's very easy to slip out of balance. To feel conflicted. We want to get something, but we fear it at the same time. It's very easy to feel stuck. But with a little understanding, and some mental exercises, you can re-claim your natural balance. And be much more in tune with your nature. And once ALL the parts of you are aligned, you'll be unstoppable. Learn How: Ego Taming
  15. The other night I watched a YouTube video about the Mandelbrot set. It's a fractal pattern, based on imaginary numbers. (I find a lot in common between mathematics and hypnosis...) A fractal pattern is a shape that keeps repeating the more you zoom in. It also has the curious property of having an infinite circumference, but a finite volume. Meaning the squiggly line going around the outside goes on forever. But the area inside this closed loop of infinity is finite. But it's also in a lot of natural shapes. Trees, roots and branches each are like fractals. The trunk, branches, leaves, and each vein within the leaf are repeating patterns. Our cardiovascular system, nervous system and even our neurology are fractal-like patterns. Reality is kind of weird like this. Ideas, patterns, systems seem to be found a many levels. One of the common ideas in all of science is equilibrium. The sun is in equilibrium with the Earth. The Earth with the moon. Our bodies and our sleep cycles. When we are in-sync, everything feels fantastic. When we are out of sync, everything feels like crap. When athletes or musicians are highly in-sync, they call it the "flow state." Where the conscious mind just shuts off and takes a back seat. This might be described as the highly coveted "self-actualized" person. An athlete or musician or scientist who is operating a peak efficiency, and in total equilibrium with the world. Not in the world, but part of the world. The seamless flow between thought and things. The athlete just barely imagines the perfect move and then it happens. The difference between the sounds in the musician's mind and the sounds coming out of the speakers shrink to zero. Of course, the minute you start thinking consciously when you're in one of these states, you ruin it. This is when you're playing a song (or video game) perfectly, but then you start to focus on an aspect if it, and you "lose" that balance. These events happen over short periods, but also over long periods. Once humans lived in groups that were in perfect harmony with each other. One of many, many of one. But it's hard to find that these days. Everybody's in a hurry, everybody's trying to play everybody. You don't know who you can trust. But the possibility still exists. To tap that inner guide of your social equilibrium. To get back into social balance. Where social fears are a thing of the past. Learn How: Ego Taming
  16. One of the laws of economics is the idea of an opportunity cost. Everything has a cost. Even free stuff. (There's generally a reason why it's free...) Even if you shift in your seat, you are spending energy (a calorie or two) to end up in a more comfortable position. But when thinking of doing or buying things, we usually only think of the direct costs. At least consciously. If you want a burrito, for example, it will cost five bucks. Or maybe some kind of effort, if the burrito store is a ways from your house. But also embedded into getting anything is the idea of opportunity cost. If you get a burrito, for example, you can't simultaneously get a cheeseburger. You COULD, but eating a burrito AND a cheeseburger would be a different experience than only eating a burrito. This is one of the things that can hold us back, on a subconscious level. We want something. But we also know that if we get that "something" we can't have another "thing." Us humans like the idea of a vague but positive future. This is why we like going on trips, birthday parties or other exciting things that are coming in the future. A feeling of positive expectation, where you aren't quite sure WHAT is going to happen is a pretty good feeling. And that vague positive expectation goes away when you KNOW what you are getting. We very much like the idea of "winging it." Some of the best experiences we have are when unexpected things happen. If you are in a relationship, and you start doing the same things over and over again, it can get boring. If you go to the same restaurant for dinner every night, it can get boring. But on the flip side of unexpected GOOD things is unexpected BAD things. As much as we love exciting adventures, we HATE dangerous risk. It can be very tough to find a balance. It can also be very easy to find yourself stuck. Wishing you could do something different (since what you're doing is pretty boring). But at the same to anxious or even scared to try something different. If you feel this way, even sometimes, it could be a signal that our social instincts are out of calibration. The whole purpose we have social instincts is to keep us within a safe and acceptable range. Very much like Goldilocks. Not too scary, but not too boring. Just right. But if your social instincts are out of whack, things could seem MORE scary than they really are. And when you Re-Calibrate your social instincts, you won't have to think very much. Just get in the game and have fun. Learn More: Ego Taming
  17. Most human problems can be tied to a mismatch in instincts. Hunger is the easiest to understand. Way back in the day, it was a benefit to be MORE hungry than there was food available. It kept us motivated, always moving. Even today, being "hungry" means being motivated. We want something that we don't have. So we do whatever it takes to get it. But on a literal level, our hunger instinct doesn't help us so much. If you've ever gone on a diet, you know how difficult it is. Sure, there are plenty of tricks to play on your hunger. Drink water before eating. Never go shopping when hungry. Eat slowly. But all these are things that you consciously need to remember to do. Your ancient (and very powerful) hunger instinct is ALWAYS waiting for you to forget about it. One of the big problems regarding health is our hunger only knows what TASTES good. It's programmed to eat whatever TASTES the best. It was calibrated WAY back in the day when "good taste = good health." In that regard, it's very simple. If something tastes good, eat as much as you can. Way back in the day when food was scarce, this was fantastic. Now it sucks. Because clever food producers know how to purposely trick our taste buds into feeling nearly ADDICTED to processed food. Now, this is JUST our hunger. But we have a lot of other instincts that misfire all the time. The most confusing are our social instincts. But they are opposite of our hunger. Our hunger THINKS that "junk food" is healthy because it TASTES good. But we KNOW when we are eating junk food. We KNOW we are eating healthy food. The problem is that junk food, to most people, TASTES BETTER than healthy food. But for our social instincts, this is the opposite. Healthy social signals from others FEEL FANTASTIC. Unhealthy social signals are fake and shallow, and feel fake and shallow. But unlike our hunger, it's very hard to tell the difference, unless you are actively looking. But the good news is that with a little bit of practice, you can RE-CALIBRATE your social instincts. So they ONLY are "fed" by healthy social signals. Since these FEEL better, you'll soon forget about all the fake ones. And it's the fake social signals that cause all social anxiety. Once you re-calibrate your social instincts, social anxiety will forever be a thing of the past. Learn More: Ego Taming
