  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct03Post.mp4 A deep desire for most people is to get more social status. This is based on a very ancient instinct. It works very much like food and sex. For example, you could be walking down the street, minding your own business. You might not think you're hungry. Until you pass a bakery. Or an IN-N-Out. Or perhaps you meet some friends for drinks. You don't feel hungry. Until your friends order some appetizers. Take one bite and it's all over. We even say things like, "Wow, I didn't know how hungry I was!" Sex is the same. Suppose your walking down another street, minding your own business. You see an attractive person, and smile at them. Suppose they smile back. REALLY smile back. Even look you up and down, letting their eyes feast on you. But they keep walking. Whatever you WERE thinking about is long gone. Now that person is all you'll be able to think about. For a few days. Social status is very much like that. We don't think we WANT any until we GET some. And then it's ALL we can think of. But because suddenly being blindsided by food and sex ideas and images is common, but REAL social status is not, most won't ever experience this. This is a common "drug" like feeling in those who fear public speaking, but get over it. At least enough to get up a few times and give a speech. Standing up in front of people feels VERY MUCH like having real social status. Even if it's a bunch of goofs like us just there to practice giving speeches. It's not uncommon for people who are initially terrified of public speaking lose time. They stand up, and once the fear wanes and the positive feelings kick in, then it's like hunger. Where you can't ever eat one chip. They love the feeling so much they talk and talk and talk. But REAL social status is EXTREMELY powerful. Because from a purely instinctive standpoint, after a certain point, money and sex are natural results. Below a certain level money and sex MUST be chased separately. And once you get above a certain level of social status, the name of the game is twofold. One, to KEEP IT at all costs. Two, get MORE of it at all costs. And one very powerful way that pretty much EVERYBODY has used to keep their status and power is LIE about how to get it. Nobody wants competition. So those at the top are very skilled in feeding those below them a bunch of crap. So those below them will STAY below them. Screw that! Understand the rules, and get whatever you want.

  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept19Post.mp4 There are two ways to respond to the world. This assumes that every single human will look out into the world and see it as being LESS than ideal. This must be true. Since all humans will always have a collection of unmet needs. Food, water, protection from the elements. Emotional, sexual, relationship needs. All these need to come from our environment. So at any given time, every single one of us looks out into the world. When we do so, we have a collection of things in our mind that we would like FROM the world. Some are conscious and simple. Some are unconscious and utterly complex. Some things can be satisfied quickly and easily. Some may take a lifetime, and we still may fall short. How we RESPOND to this common human experience will define our lives. When we are very young, we are helpless. We absolutely DEPEND on those around us who have much more power than us. Those who have many more resources than us. Up to a certain age, it is absolutely necessary to expect OTHER PEOPLE to satisfy our needs. But beyond a certain age, we need to start getting our own needs in our own way. You may even say this is the main PURPOSE of our life. To MAXIMIZE the stuff we can get FROM the world. By interacting WITH the world. Of course, part of this involves recognizing that the entire world is filled with other people. With every one having that same exact strategy. To interact WITH the world. To get their needs met FROM the world. It's common to think that SOME of our needs are still NOT our responsibility. Even as adults. How can this be? This would REQUIRE that some adults have the responsibility of TAKING CARE of those they will never meet. Non relatives. This is a dangerous idea. Of expecting your needs to be met by people you will never meet. It's one thing to put energy INTO the system, and expect energy OUT OF the system. Energy in being work, time, effort, etc. Energy out being money, goods, things we need for life, etc. This is healthy. This natural. Put in, and get out. As you go through life, you maximize the ratio. By making the things you PUT IN more and more valuable. And that you can do with less and less effort. But if you only expect to get things OUT, without also putting things IN, that creates problems. Because what if EVERYBODY on Earth decided to do that? The flip side is that you can figure out how to MAXIMIZE the ratio of inputs and outputs. Creating a much better life. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/seven-rules/
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept15Post.mp4 Humans tend to externalize quite a bit. It's a very useful instinct. Imagine an ancient dude is out hunting. He tosses his spear at a animal and misses. If he got angry or upset at himself, that would NOT be very effective. Externalizing, on the other hand, would be very effective. Getting mad at the animal. This would cause anger. Anger would create more energy and motivation. This worked perfectly back in the day. When it was US vs. our environment. US were the people we lived with. The people we grew up with. Our environment was other animals. Other tribes. Or forces of nature that were treated like people. The gods of the sky, etc. Today, our instincts are flip flopped. Hunger is the easiest to understand. Back then, the rule was simple. Eat whatever tastes good. Eat as much as you can. Eating as much as you can was necessary because food was hard to find. Eating whatever tasted good was necessary, since there was a high correlation between good tasting food and healthy food. Tree bark, dirt, etc., didn't taste good and it wasn't healthy. Fresh meat tasted good and it was healthy. So were vegetables, fruits, some plants. Today, if we BLINDLY follow our hunger instincts, we'll get metabolic syndrome. Obesity, stress, high cholesterol, high blood pressure. We have to use our conscious minds to regulate our hunger instinct. Our externalizing instinct is also similarly messed. Back then, our environment was stuff that we needed to kill, or was trying to kill us. Today, our environment is other people. Back then, trying to kill an animal and getting mad at the animal was very useful. Today, trying to interact with other people, and getting mad at them if we don't, is NOT a useful strategy. Luckily, we can use our conscious minds to understand, tame and regulate our social instincts. Turns out this is MUCH EASIER than regulating our hunger instinct. Hunger is life or death. Social instincts are not. Which means when you figure out HOW to regulate and manage both your social instinct and your externalizing instinct, social interactions are MUCH easier. Which social interactions? All of them. Friends, lovers and everything in between. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/love-instict/
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept11Post.mp4 When I was in elementary school, we had a dog. He was trained just enough. He LOVED to run. I learned how to get him to pull me on my skateboard. It'd scream at him, he'd start running, and off we'd go. Of course, sometimes he'd go too fast for me to keep up. Or he'd take off running before I was ready. He pulled me crashing to the ground plenty of times. Probably the funniest was when I was on my bike. Just cruising along. Not even holding the handle bars. We passed this intersection. Going right was to a big park. Going straight was just along the same residential street. He thought we were going to the park. He didn't bother checking with me first. He just took off. And since I wasn't holding the handle bars, he yanked me right onto the ground. I was a bit upset, as I didn't expect nor want to be yanked onto the pavement. But he just looked at me. "Dude, what? Are you coming or not? Hey, why are you lying on the ground?" This is what happens when you are being led by something powerful. Something with a mind of its own. Something that actually makes decisions without checking with you. This is a perfect metaphor for our instincts. These very powerful "entities" that can pull places we weren't expecting. And when we fall on the pavement, they just look at us funny. "Dude, what?" Sometimes this happens when you find yourself standing in front of the freezer eating a carton of ice cream. Way back in your mind, you had the goofy idea you'd only eat one bite. But there you are. 18, 19, 20... (one more).... 21.. 22... Sometimes, we can PREFRAME our instincts. Like thinking ahead and NOT having any ice cream in the freezer. Or NOT shopping when we are hungry. Avoiding temptation. But sometimes this happens when we least expect. When we see people on the street. Or start talking to people at work. At first we're friendly. Next thing we know we're laying in bed thinking about them. Our instincts are very much like the Borg. Resistance is futile. Or like that one Mohawk dude in The Road Warrior. You! You can run! But you can't hide! If you are really hungry, and are craving a double cheeseburger, this CAN suck. But you can also eat some healthy stuff to take away the craving. Other instincts aren't so easy. Particularly the LOVE instinct. Once this one gets you, watch out. This IS, however, an instinct. And understanding how, why and when it works will be helpful. So you won't end up on the pavement. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/love-instinct/

  6. Most normal people have issues with food. Either eating too much, or not the right kind. If you've ever tried to lose weight and couldn't, it's one of the most maddening situations. A common situation is as follows. You have a strong DESIRE to change your body. Maybe less fat, maybe more muscle. And so you do some research. You want to find out HOW to satisfy that desire. When you read the material, it sounds obvious. Scientific. It makes perfect sense. But then you run smack in the face of harsh reality. You KNOW what to do. But you can't do it. Sometiems this is when you KNOW you need to under a certain number of calories per day, but you can't. Part of you wants to abstain, but another part wants to eat. And the part of you that wants to eat seems to always win. This is the same battle that happens in nearly all areas of life. Part of you wants something. But another part of you, a much stronger part of you, makes doing that impossible. You see a cute girl across the room. She even smiled at you a couple of times. All you need to do is walk over there and start talking. But you can't. You come up with a billion LOGICAL SOUNDING reasons. You don't know what to say. Or you convince yourself that she isn't your type. Both of these frustrating situations are of the same structure. You have a desire to create a certain outcome. A very STRONG desire. Either to lose weight, or gain muscle, or study more, or to make friends. But another desire always keeps you from doing it. The thing you WANT is nearly always a long term desire. The thing that STOPS YOU is nearly always a short term desire. You want to study, but another more stronger desire makes you watch TV instead. You want to exercise, but another more stronger desire makes you stay in bed instead. Understanding that all these are of the SAME STRUCTURE is the first step. To see recognize that these short term, much stronger desires, seem to always OUT FRAME the longer, "higher order" desires. Once you understand the structure, you can fix it. And you fix it by SLOWLY strengthening the higher order desires. And by seeing them as things that need to be built slowly over time. There are plenty of ways out gain more control over these long desires. So will power is not needed. And frustration will vanish. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/
