  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan19_Post.mp4 One of the most common "self development" thoughts or wishes is also the most dangerous. In many ways, we live within a lot of paradoxes. Self deception fueled by biases. Biases that helped us to survive before, but harm us today. The most common desire, to satisfy a perceived shortcoming is behind ALL self help "fail." The more you WANT this one thing that we all believe we don't have, the more likely you will fail. So, what is this thing that everybody wants, believes they don't have, but can't succeed without? This one "theme" is this behind every type of self help, from weight loss to making money to reaching any kind of imagined potential? Motivation. Everybody BELIEVES they need motivation. Everybody STARTS any kind of goal, physical or mental, by conjuring up motivation. But motivation, when you get rid of all the guru fluff and ideas about screaming in the mirror, is ONLY a short term strategy. And it's based on a kind of "mis-match." It works like this. First, you want an outcome that you don't have. You realize it's going to take effort to get from where you are, to where you want to be. And since you're NOT automatically doing it, you need to bridge the gap. And you bridge the gap with MOTIVATION. A short term burst of energy to get you going. But that initial and short-lived and ARTIFICIAL burst of energy is not calibrated. Before you even start, you have a misunderstanding. You over-estimate the BENEFITS, the thing that you want. You underestimate the COSTS, what it will take to get there. Even then, just sitting there with that cost-benefit estimate in your brain, you NEED motivation to get started. Do you need motivation to get up, walk to the fridge, and grab another cold one? No. Silly, right? But WHY is that action AUTOMATIC, but achieving any kind of long range goal is not? Because getting up and walking to the fridge is NOT based on guessing. You KNOW what it will cost. You KNOW what you will get. What's the difference between somebody who jogs four miles every day, and ENJOYS it, vs. somebody who struggles to get out and walk? The person who jogs, within their brain, is just like the person who gets up to get another beer from the fridge. Both are EASY actions. They KNOW what the costs will be. They KNOW what benefits will be. So, the money question. How, specifically, can you becoming like the daily jogger? Who doesn't NEED motivation? Who does things that not only get them closer to their objectives, but enjoys them in the process? How can YOU make the actions needed to get to your long term goals as EASY as getting another beer? Go. Very. Slowly. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/ideal-health/
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May14Post.mp4 I've always been physically active. I was an avid jogger in high school. I started lifting weights in junior high school. But physical activity is not the only variable to health. For a while, I was physically active, hitting the gym for an hour or so after work every day. But my diet was horrible. When I was younger, I could compensate for my crappy diet with extra exercise. But then I ran into another problem. My muscles were happy to comply with whatever I demanded of them. My tendons were another story. Without question, the huge majority of any ailments I've had in my life are due to over-training. And I was over-training because I was over-eating. My silly plan was to eat whatever I wanted, figuring I'd just blast away in the gym to compensate. But eventually, one of my tendons, usually my Achilles, would throw up a red flag. STOP! I'd be out of commission for a week or two. Sometimes longer. I've had plenty of cortisone injections. EXTREMELY painful. Now, as I get older, I am much more careful about all three things. Eating, physical activity, and my poor tendons. I've discovered, through many DECADES of trial and error, than when it comes to physical activity, slower is definitely better. That building momentum is MUCH better than looking for quick results. You can say the same of pretty much everything. We want results. This drive for results is enough to push us OUTSIDE of our comfort zones. In the process, we drag all our other parts outside of our comfort zone alone for the ride. Eventually, part us is going to feel VERY NERVOUS outside of our comfort zone. That part is going to do something to FORCE us back inside. This is very much like my tendons making me SLOW DOWN. This is the root of all self sabotage. Part of you wants you charge ahead. Another part of you not so much. Or the part of you that wants to charge ahead has only a VAGUE idea of what's out there. But when you get out there, you get a much clearer picture, and you suddenly become nervous and scurry back into the safety of your comfort zone. This is why all self-development programs that are based on MOTIVATION will eventually crash and burn. What's better? Forget the motivation. Instead, build momentum. Slow, steady, momentum. And guess what? If you go SLOW enough, you'll also be building a HISTORY. So you an look back, and see how far you've come. This will allow you easily extrapolate into the future, and see how far you WILL go. Easy, natural, consistent. Zero motivation means zero anxiety. Maximum momentum means maximum clarity of thought and perception. Making EVERYTHING easier. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/luck-activator/
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July22Post.mp4 Humans are very attached to the idea of free will. A common metaphor that describes the relationship between the conscious mind and the unconscious mind is of a captain and a ship. The unconscious mind is the powerful ship. The conscious mind is the captain who steers the ship. The problem with many beliefs is they are very much like food. We don't eat food because it is healthy. We eat food because it tastes good. To the extent you DO eat food because it's healthy, it's not automatic. And it's not easy. Beliefs are the same. We don't believe things because they are true. We believe things that make us feel good. Truth can be a very dangerous thing. Ignorance, on the other hand, is bliss. Take the captain and the ship metaphor. We love the idea that "we" up in our brain has free will. That "we" can steer our ship wherever we want. But think of the things we'd do if that were true. Using our free will to CHOOSE to study would be easy. So easy we'd spend all our time studying and learning and getting smarter and smarter. We'd our free will to exercise instead of sleep in. Which means we'd all have super fit bodies. We'd use our free will to DECIDE to walk across the room and talk to interesting people. So we'd be healthy, smart, and have plenty of healthy, happy relationships with smart, healthy people. But we don't. So the idea of free will CAN'T be true. But even in the face of EVIDENCE it's hard to accept that. So we deceive ourselves. We tell ourselves we don't WANT all those things. But if there was a magic pill, that had zero side effects, was permanent, and gave us ALL those things (intelligence, health, massive confidence) and it only cost a dollar, EVERYBODY would take it. So we DO want those things, it's just that we aren't willing to pay the costs. It's much easier to follow our INSTINCTS. Instincts that make us want to play it safe, sleep late, and only eat food that tastes good and believe things that make us feel good. This, actually, is FANTASTIC news. Because when you want to PERSUADE somebody, all you need to do is leverage these INSTINCTS. Most people try and leverage the CONSCIOUS reasons we tell ourselves WHY we do the things we do. But as an advanced persuader, you know better. Once you learn about the basic human instincts that drive ALL human behaviors, persuading people is EASY.
